Your Greatest Sidekicks List Is Missing Someone…

Dear Mashable,

You’ve got to be kidding me!

I just read your compilation of The 15 Greatest Video Game Sidekicks of All Time.  And, a very important sidekick is conspicuously absent from the list.

J. You missed J!  As in PB….and J from the famed Polar Bowler games.  This very proper, bow-tied penguin has every single positive characteristic of an insanely awesome sidekick like:

If that’s not a snarky, sidekick-worthy golf clap, I don’t know what is…

  • He’s flightless.  You know he’s not going anywhere because he can’t.  That means he’ll always be by your side.
  • He’s a bird.  Birds are traditional sidekicks!  Examples? Robin, Woodstock, and those creepy parrots that pirates always have on their shoulders.
  • He’s ashamed of PB… a lot.  All good sidekicks should constantly question their protagonist counterpart’s behavioral choices
  • He always carries a towel, which means he’s ready for anything.
  • He makes a fine fish sandwich. Never overlook the value of a top sandwich artist.
  • And, finally, he looks sharp in a bow tie.

J, take a bow.  You may not have made Mashable’s list, but, today, you’re our favorite sidekick.

(Take that Yoshi!)

To see J live and in action as PB’s famous sidekick, download Polar Bowler 1st Frame on iOS, Android, Kindle Fire or play it from the WildTangent Games App for Android.
