Ditto, the most I've seen from the musical is the Quantum Leap episode and the cover of the song from it by Carter USM.

A giant who is employed by Vizzini when he finds him jobless in Greenland. Fezzik is a rather simple person, who doesn't have a problem with subverting the law, but doesn't like to fight dirty. He has the opportunity to crush Westley's skull at a distance with a large rock, but chooses to give him a chance to fight him hand to hand.

He later befriends Westley and helps him infiltrate the castle so Westley can save Buttercup and Inigo can get his revenge on Count Rugen.

One of Fezzik's favorite pastimes is playing a rhyming game with Inigo.

Fezzik’s dream has come true since arriving: large women!  He and Etta Candy have really been hitting it off.  Woo woo!

37 – R2-D2

Sycophancy Level: ?/10 (who knows what he is plotting)
R2-D2 (phonetically spelled Artoo-Detoo, and called "R2" for short), is a character in the Star Wars universe. An astromech droid, R2-D2 is a major character throughout all six Star Wars films. Along with his droid companion C-3PO, he joins or supports Anakin Skywalker, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Obi-Wan Kenobi in various points in the saga. R2-D2 was played by Kenny Baker.

R2-D2 was designed by John Stears and specially created by Australian firm Petric Engineering and English firm C&L Developments. Many scenes also made use of radio controlled and CGI versions of the character. Both the original props of R2-D2 and C-3PO used in filming are used as audio-animatronics in the queue area of Disneyland's Star Tours ride.

An XBox 360 designed like the robot was released in 2011.

In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, both R2-D2 and C-3PO are introduced on board the Tantive IV, along with Princess Leia of Alderaan, when they are fired upon by an Imperial Star Destroyer. Leia slips R2-D2 a disc containing a distress message and the plans for the Death Star battle station. The droids then escape in a pod that crashes on Tatooine.

R2-D2 and C-3PO are abducted by Jawas and bought by Owen Lars, step-uncle of Luke Skywalker. While Luke cleans the sand out of R2-D2's gears, he discovers a fragment of Leia's message, and removes the droid's restraining bolt to see more; once free of the bolt, R2 claims to have no knowledge of the message. That night, R2 leaves the farm to seek out Obi-Wan Kenobi. Soon, by way of fate, Luke is forced to leave Tatooine with Obi-Wan, Han Solo, and Chewbacca, and they attempt to deliver R2-D2 to the Rebel Alliance. Along the way, they are pulled in by the Death Star's tractor beam, but eventually rescue Leia and escape. R2-D2 delivers the plans to the Rebel Alliance, and becomes Luke's astromech droid during the attack on the station. R2 is severely damaged during the battle, but is restored before the ceremony at the end of the film.

In Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, R2 accompanies Luke to Dagobah, and later to Cloud City, where he helps to rescue and repair a heavily damaged C-3PO and to override city security computers. He also manages to fix the Millennium Falcon's hyperdrive, resulting in a last-minute escape from Imperial forces.

In Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, R2-D2 plays a critical role in the rescue of Han, Luke and Leia from Jabba the Hutt, and later joins the Rebel strike team on Endor.

Didn't include R2 for pretty much the  so much reasons I didn't include Silent Bob. Just because you don't talk so much, doesn't make you a second banana.

True. And he really was the more dominant one when paired with C3PO. Granted, R2D2 does qualify because he does work for Luke and others at various times. But he isn't that much of a sycophant, he has a good motivator.

35 – Tuco Ramirez

Sycophancy Level: 1/10
Tuco Ramírez (full name: Tuco Benedicto Pacífico Juan María Ramírez) is one of the three eponymous characters from Sergio Leone's spaghetti western The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. In the film, Tuco is identified as the ugly (incorrectly as the bad in the film's trailers) through in-film texts. He is of Mexican origin and also the only character of whom the audience learns any history (in comparison to his companion Blondie or enemy Angel Eyes). In the movie he is played by Eli Wallach, whose performance was based on a similar character he played in How the West Was Won.


Tuco is a greedy, self-serving bandit wanted for a string of crimes involving, but not limited to, armed robbery, rape, bigamy, abandoning his wife and children, receiving and selling stolen goods, etc. He has committed enough crimes to earn himself a $3,000 bounty. It is dubious, however that he has actually committed all the crimes listed in the film: Blondie and Tuco's arrangement at the beginning entails building up Tuco's reputation as a bandit in order to receive a higher ransom. Tuco's greed is also shown when he encounters the ambulance-cart full of dead confederate soldiers in the desert as he heartlessly digs through the pockets of the clothes on corpses.

Tuco is also shown as extremely vengeful. When Blondie leaves Tuco in the desert at the beginning of the movie, Tuco becomes obsessed with exacting revenge by leading Blondie on a forced march in harsh desert conditions until Blondie expires.

Despite Tuco's greedy nature, he regards his own family highly. He is devastated after his brother Pablo Ramírez informs him that their father has been dead for a long time. His brother, who is a father at a mission turned field hospital, helps Tuco to rehabilitate Blondie. Pablo also tells Tuco that their mother had also died recently, which is why Pablo was not at the monastery to meet Tuco and Blondie when they first arrived. Tuco remains convinced that his way of living is better than his brother's, thinking his brother became a priest because it was easier. Even though they end trading blows, Tuco still speaks highly of his brother to Blondie when the two leave for Sad Hill cemetery (not knowing Blondie has witnessed their exchange).

Tuco also has a faux-religious side to him. Sometimes when encountering corpses or killing someone, he performs a hasty sign of the cross.

He’s invited, but he hasn’t made it here yet.  Sadly, he’s still tied to that tree next to the half full bag of gold.

Sycophancy Level: 10/10
Stimpson J. Cat (or simply Stimpy) is a fictional character from the Nickelodeon series The Ren & Stimpy Show and Spike series Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon. He is one of the main title characters and serves as the main deuteragonist (secondary antagonist of the series). He first appeared in the pilot episode "Big House Blues".

Stimpy is a red and white, rotund Manx cat with a blue nose, purple eyelids, no tail, hands with gloves that have fingernails, human-style buttocks, flat feet, and a brain the size of a peanut. He is portrayed as an idiot in the series despite some cooking skills and inventing, as seen in some episodes of the show. He also serves as Ren's punching bag whenever Ren gets upset.

Ren Höek is Stimpy's best friend. Stimpy almost never gets mad at him, despite getting slapped or beat up by him in almost every episode of the series.

Donny was a good bowler, and a good man. He was one of us. He was a man who loved the outdoors... and bowling, and as a surfer he explored the beaches of Southern California, from La Jolla to Leo Carrillo and... up to... Pismo. He died, like so many young men of his generation, he died before his time. In your wisdom, Lord, you took him, as you took so many bright flowering young men at Khe Sanh, at Langdok, at Hill 364. These young men gave their lives. And so would Donny. Donny, who loved bowling. And so, Theodore Donald Karabotsos, in accordance with what we think your dying wishes might well have been, we commit your final mortal remains to the bosom of the Pacific Ocean, which you loved so well. Good night, sweet prince.

Sycophancy Level: 5/10
Kato is a fictional character from The Green Hornet series. This character has also appeared with the Green Hornet in film, television, book and comic book versions. Kato was the Hornet's assistant and has been played by a number of actors. On radio, Kato was initially played by Raymond Hayashi, then Roland Parker who had the role for most of the run, and in the later years Mickey Tolan. Keye Luketook the role in the movie serials, and in the television series he was portrayed by Bruce Lee. Jay Chou plays Kato in the 2011 Green Hornet film.

Kato was Britt Reid's valet, who doubled as The Green Hornet's unnamed, masked driver and partner to help him in his vigilante adventures, disguised as the activities of a racketeer and his chauffeur/bodyguard/enforcer. According to the storyline, years before the events depicted in the series, Britt Reid had saved Kato's life while traveling in the Far East. Depending on the version of the story, this prompted Kato to become Reid's assistant or friend. In the anthology The Green Hornet Chronicles from Moonstone Books, author  Richard Dean Starr's story "Nothing Gold Can Stay: An Origin Story of Kato" explores the character's background and how he ends up living in America, suggesting that Kato met Britt Reid on a later trip back to his homeland while in search of his mother.

He’s of an interesting breed: the second banana superior to the top banana.  Let’s face it, Green Hornet is kind of neat but everyone remembers Kato.  Now he has a bland white guy drive him around and act as his number two.

31 – Ron Weasley

Sycophancy Level: 5/10
Ronald Bilius "Ron" Weasley is a fictional character and one of the three protagonists (the other two being Harry Potter and Hermione Granger) in the Harry Potter book series written by J. K. Rowling. His first appearance was in the first book of the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as the best friend of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger. He is a member of the Weasley family, a pure blood family, who reside in "The Burrow" outside Ottery St. Catchpole. Along with Harry and Hermione, he is a member of the Gryffindor house. Ron is present in most of the action throughout the series due to his friendship with Harry.

According to J. K. Rowling, Ron was among the characters she created "the very first day".[1] Ron is inspired by Rowling's best friend Sean Harris (to whom Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is dedicated), but she has clearly stated that she "never set out to describe Sean in Ron, but Ron has a Sean-ish turn of phrase."[2] Like Harris is to Rowling, Ron is "always there" when Harry needs him. The character of Ron fits many of the stereotypes expected of the sidekick; he is often used as comic relief, is loyal to the hero, and lacks much of the talent Harry possesses, at least in terms of magical power. However, he has demonstrated bravery several times, such as playing 'real wizard's chess' in the first book, and entering into the Forbidden Forest with Harry during the second book despite his arachnophobia.

Some of Ron's qualities serve as foils to Harry. While Harry is an orphan with more gold than he needs, Ron comes from a large and loving but poor family; many of his possessions arehand-me-downs. Harry is famous but would prefer to avoid the spotlight; Ron, in comparison, is often perceived as a mere lackey and sometimes becomes jealous of the recognition Harry receives. Finally, Ron is the most mediocre of his siblings, being (as of the first book) neither an excellent Quidditch player, a noteworthy student, nor the daughter his mother always wanted. All these factors have combined to cause Ron serious insecurities; this inferiority complex, and his need to prove himself a notable person in his own right is the main thrust of his character growth.

Most Second Bananas are happy to get here, but Ron seems a little irked.  Some people just don’t get that they’re second best.  Still, that’s just one away from first.
