17 – Henchman 24

56 points             
3 of 15 lists   
Top Vote: #3 Cjones (for reasons that will be clear later, those who paired 21 and 24 had their points go towards 24)
   
Sycophancy Level: 3/10
With only a GED to his name the lanky #24 had few options but to join the Monarch's henchmen. Using his Ray Romano-esque voice, he directed many of the henchmen's early activities. He'd soon rise to the ranks of being amongst the Monarch's "best" men.

His career as a henchman started at the same time as the Monarch's as he was a shadowman for The Phantom Limb, aiding the Monarch he was promised the position of Monarch's #2. Instead, when he finally joined, he kept his old number from being a shadowman which was #24.

When not actively doing the Monarch's will #21 and #24 spend their free time debating many of the world's pressing issues including the taxonomic classification of Smurfs and the outcome of fist fights between alleged axe murderers and adolescent holocaust victims. On his "Worldwide Arching License" given to him by "#21" his name is Corky Knightrider

He’s been alone for the past couple years.  No one else cares about arguing who would win in a drag race: Speed Racer or Speed Buggy.  And of course 24 chose Speed Buggy

16 – Starscream

Sycophancy Level: 1/10
Starscream is a fictional character in the Transformers franchise. He is one of the most prolific characters in the Transformers fictional work, appearing in almost all incarnations of the story. Starscream is usually portrayed with the same characterization. Formerly being a scientist, Starscream is a treacherous, high ranking Decepticon who turns into a jet and is known to often challenge his leader Megatron for leadership of the Decepticons. He is the secondary antagonist of the whole franchise.

Due to his treachery and personality, Starscream has had many future characters within the franchise to bear his name, most of which share his desire to become leader of the Decepticons. Starscream has, at some points, had control over the Decepticons, but his actions usually lead him to being defeated, or overruled by the more powerful Megatron. Starscream makes no secret of his ambition to overthrow Megatron as leader of the Decepticons. He is more intelligent than the average Decepticon, ruthless and cruel, but he is also unlikely to directly act on his ultimate ambition without assurance of conditions favorable to his ascension. He considers himself vastly superior to other Decepticons, and looks down on Megatron for being antiquated in his military strategies and tactics. Starscream believes that the Decepticons should rely more on guile and speed rather than brute destructive force to defeat the Autobots, although when he is given the chance to strike out on his own, he is often less successful than Megatron. Megatron frequently overlooks the potential threat that Starscream represents, though it is occasionally suggested that Megatron tolerates his presence for various reasons, such as a grudging respect for his scheming nature, or a mere safety precaution to keep an eye on him. However, Starscream often exhausts Megatron's patience quickly; violent-yet-brief verbal and/or physical conflicts are not uncommon between the two.

With no more Megatron, he is now trying to usurp power from a rundown school bus for domination of the impound lot.

“LOOK INTO YOUR HEART!”

Oh, and "androids to a picnic"?  I think Megatron just stopped caring.

15 – Baldrick

3 of 15 lists   
Top Vote: #2 Imrahil
   
Sycophancy Level: 6/10
Baldrick is the name of several fictional characters featured in the long-running BBC historic comedy television series Blackadder. Each one serves as Edmund Blackadder's servant and sidekick and acts as a foil to the lead character. Each series of Blackadder is set in a different period in British history, and each Baldrick character (as with the character of Edmund) is a descendant of the Baldrick from the preceding series. Just as Blackadder exists in many incarnations throughout the ages, so does Baldrick; whenever there is a Blackadder there is a Baldrick serving him. They are all portrayed by Tony Robinson (although in the unaired pilot episode he was played by Philip Fox).

The relationship between Edmund and Baldrick evolves significantly; in the first series of the show, Baldrick is more intelligent than Blackadder, but this dynamic is reversed in subsequent series, with Baldrick's intelligence decreasing as the show continued. He is the only character other than Edmund Blackadder to appear in every episode of the programme.

Finally, he’s surrounded by people who appreciate his plans.  In fact, we have an annual symposium for those with… unique ideas.  Then all ideas are taken down on paper by a stenographer and at the end of the event, both are burned.

14 – GIR

62 points             
3 of 15 lists   
Top Vote: #1 CJones
   
Sycophancy Level: Crazy/10
GIR is voiced by Riki Simmons. He is a malfunctioning Irken SIR (Standard-issue Information Retrieval) Unit who was assigned to Zim in the series. He was built by The Almighty Tallest out of SIR unit remains and whatever they could find in the trash and their pockets, passing him off to Zim as a "top-secret" and "advanced model". His name is a self-applied moniker that is never explained in the show. Because GIR's head contains various odds-and-ends (rather than artificial intelligence hardware), he displays a wildly erratic personality. He is almost completely irreverent, and rarely obeys Zim's commands, mostly due to distraction, and is disinterested or disobedient.

When GIR does comply, the cyan-colored parts of his body (most notably, his eyes, shoulders, and belly) glow red like normal SIRs. He has shown glimpses of intelligence and logic, as he did in the episode, although Zim views this as disobedience, as they usually involve poking holes in his plans. He disguises himself in public by wearing a green dog suit which fools most humans, despite looking and acting almost nothing like an Earth dog (he meows like a cat) He loves rubber piggies, tacos , chocolate-bubble gum smoothies, cupcakes, tuna, and waffles, which he makes from peanut-butter-and-bubbles.

13 – Henchman 21

65 points             
3 of 15 lists   
Top Vote: #3 Pak-Man (See there were 3 votes for 21, one for 24 and 2 for both, so I figured the together votes for 24 would avoid redundancy.  Plus, both get a moment to shine)
   
Sycophancy Level: 4/10 (though he quit at the end of last season)
One of the more familiar representatives of The Fluttering Horde, Henchman #21along with #24 give a glimpse into life inside the Cocoon. Much is revealed in their tell-all book The Flight of The Monarch, an embellished version of the Monarch's life.

Kidnapped by the horde at age 15 on an eighth grade trip to Washington, #21, the shorter and stockier of the duo, aspires to grow a pony tail. When The Fluttering Horde disassembles after The Monarch is thrown in jail, 21 goes back home, grows his pony tail, and runs The Atomic Comic Collection Connection.

When not actively doing the Monarch's will #21 and #24 spent their free time debating many of the world's pressing issues including the taxonomic classification of Smurfs and the outcome of fist fights between alleged axe murderers and adolescent holocaust victims. He enjoys camp sing-a-longs and his new red parka.

He knows nothing about any of the gadgets that he carries, such as night vision goggles, working wings that can actually make him fly, or the fact the only weapon he carries is a tranquillizer gun (thinking it is a real shot-gun). This is a source of personal frustration and he constantly blames others for not telling him these things.

The loss of his friend 24 affected Gary greatly. He spent the six months training with The Orchard Street Wolf Pack in order to never let one of his friends get killed again. This has made him the most efficient of all The Monarch's henchmen and he eventually earned the official rank of Henchman #01, but he refused to change his number. He became a legendary figure among fellow members of The Fluttering Horde, who refer to him as General "2-Ton" Twenty-One (or simply "General 21"). He has earned the respect of The Monarch, Dr. Mrs. The Monarch, and even the The Pupae Twins (along with the respect of Brock Samson in Pinstripes & Poltergeists). He also appears to have developed a rivalry with current Venture bodyguard, Sergeant Hatred.

12 – Samwise Gamgee

66 points             
4 of 15 lists   
Top Vote: #1 Imrahil
   
Sycophancy Level: 7/10
Samwise Gamgee, later known as Samwise Gardner and commonly as Sam, is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. Samwise is one of the chief characters in Tolkien's novel The Lord of the Rings, in which he fills an archetypical role as the sidekick of the protagonist, Frodo Baggins.

Samwise Gamgee is first introduced in The Fellowship of the Ring. Sam is Frodo Baggins' gardener, having inherited the position as Baggins' gardener from his father, Hamfast "Gaffer" Gamgee. At the time of the War of the Ring, Sam was living in Number 3, Bagshot Row with his father.

As "punishment" for eavesdropping on Gandalf's conversation with Frodo regarding the One Ring, Sam was made Frodo's first companion on his journey toRivendell. They were joined by Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took, Frodo's cousins, and journeyed together to Rivendell where the Council of Elrond took place.

When the Fellowship was split up at the Falls of Rauros, Sam insisted on accompanying Frodo. As Frodo became progressively weaker under the burden of the Ring, Sam carried most of the luggage, cooked, kept watch at night whenever he could, and rationed the food so Frodo had enough for the journey. He protected and took care of Frodo as they move through the dangerous lands toward Mordor. Sam distrusted Gollum, who became their guide into Mordor.

After the giant spider Shelob apparently killed Frodo, Sam drove her off. When a band of orcs approached, Sam was forced to leave the apparently dead Frodo and take the Ring himself, and briefly became a Ring-bearer. He was briefly tempted by its promise of power, but did not succumb to it. Using the Ring's power of invisibility, he rescued Frodo (who had only been paralysed) from the Orcs who held him captive. The two then journeyed alone through Mordor and into the heart of Mount Doom, where Gollum attacked Frodo and reclaimed the Ring, only to inadvertently destroy both it and himself by falling into the mountain's lava.

After the hobbits' return home and the Battle of Bywater, Sam travelled the length and breadth of the Shire replanting trees that had been cut down during Saruman's brief reign. He used the gift of earth given to him by the Lady Galadriel, which caused the saplings he planted to grow at an accelerated rate. The small amount remaining he took to the Three-Farthing Stone(roughly the centre of the Shire) and cast into the air, prompting the bountiful period of growth starting in the spring of the year 1420 (Shire Reckoning). The greatest wonder was a youngmallorn tree sprouting in the Party Field: "the only mallorn west of the Mountains and east of the Sea" (grown from a nut included as part of Galadriel's gift).

After the War of the Ring, Sam married Rose "Rosie" Cotton and moved to Bag End with Frodo. Sam and Rosie had thirteen children: Elanor the Fair, Frodo, Rose, Merry, Pippin, Goldilocks, Hamfast, Daisy, Primrose, Bilbo, Ruby, Robin, and Tolman (Tom). Sam was elected Mayor of the Shire for seven consecutive seven-year terms and came to be known as Samwise Gardner.

After Sam and Rose's first child was born it was revealed that Frodo would leave Middle-earth, along with Bilbo (Sam's old hero), Gandalf and most of the remaining High Elves (Wood Elves had no part of this exodus from Middle-Earth), for the Undying Lands. Before Frodo left, he gave the estate of Bag End to Sam, as well as the Red Book of Westmarch for Sam to continue, hinting that Sam might also be allowed to travel into the West eventually.

After the death of his wife in the year 62 of the Fourth Age (Shire Reckoning 1482), Sam entrusted the Red Book to Elanor and left the Shire at the age of 102. He was not seen again in Middle-earth, but Elanor and her descendants preserved the tradition that he went to the Grey Havens and sailed into the West. As the last of the Ring-bearers, he was entitled to sail across the Sea and be reunited with Frodo in the Undying Lands.

11 – Dwight Shrute

68 points             
4 of 15 lists   
Top Vote: #3 DB Barnes
   
Sycophancy Level: 2/10
Dwight Kurt Schrute III (January 27, 1970) is a character on NBC's The Office portrayed by Rainn Wilson. He originally exactly resembled Gareth Keenan from the original UK version of The Office. Dwight is the top salesman and former acting manager for theDunder Mifflin Paper Company and has won numerous awards for his successes, despite lacking social skills and common sense. Despite his personal dislike of Jim Halpert, the two are an effective sales team. Dwight's ability as a salesman, though, has rarely commanded the respect of his peers or led to higher levels of professional success. Moreover, though at one time he was the Assistant to the Regional Manager, he was demoted to a debatable number three in the office after Jim Halpert came back from Stamford. Currently, while Andy is manager, Dwight resumed his post as assistant regional manager.

In an episode commentary on the season-one DVD, Wilson refers to Dwight as a "fascist nerd" who is a predictable caricature of a character that demonstrates the futility of most TV. In a featurette on the season-three DVD, Wilson describes Dwight as "someone who does not hate the system, but has a deep and abiding love for it".

Dwight is a former volunteer sheriff deputy and has been trained in surveillance. Dwight lives on his family's 60-acre (240,000 m2) beet farm, in a nine bedroom farmhouse (with one outhouse), with his cousin Mose (played by producer/writer Michael Schur), where they growtable beets. Dwight also likes paintball, Battlestar Galactica, ping pong, survivalism, Goju Ryu karate and weapons. He drives a red 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. At the end of season 5 Dwight introduces his best friend, Rolf. He says that they met in a shoe store when he overheard him asking for a shoe that could increase his speed and not leave any tracks.
 
Not much is revealed about Dwight's parents except that his father used to take him hunting, cheated in games, and that he battled obesity, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. It is also revealed that Dwight would have loved to set Michael up with his mother, implying that she is deceased. Dwight once mentioned that his grandfather fought in World War II and ended up in an Allied prison camp, implying he was a soldier in the German army. This is later confirmed while Dwight is explaining his reasoning for his living to a long age. He tells the cameras that his grandfather is still "puttering around Argentina somewhere", implying that his grandfather was one of the members of the SS who fled into South America. He tried to visit his grandfather once but his travel visa was protested by the Shoah Foundation. His father and grandfather are also named Dwight Schrute; however, his great-grandfather was named Dwide Schrude.

As with Steve Carell's departure from the show, Dwight is the only character to have an appearance and speaking lines in every episode of the show.

Another interesting yet worrying pairing: Dwight and Starscream.  We must keep a very good eye on both.

Well shoot, he probably could have made the top ten if you had remembered.

I could have sworn I had Samwise Gamgee on my list, but looking over it, apparently I didn't. I must have thought of him after it was already too late. So you're not the only one to make an egregious oversight Pak-Man.

And good call Johnny regarding 21 & 24. I debated for a while with myself whether to list them separately or not. I eventually decided not to, but if I had I would have put 21 above 24, so I'm glad it worked out the way it did.

Great Second Bananas Who Didn't Make the List

Warning: this will spoil what didn't make the list:

The Cheat

Huggable, kickable, and will work for pencil shavings!

Bob, Agent of HYDRA

Also kickable.  Also punchable, throttleable, drownable and most importantly, easy to manipulate.

Klytus

Sometimes all you need to be a great henchman is to be Dr. Doom made out of gold.  Also this


Dr Mrs The Monarch

She's #2ed for other villains despite being a dangerous Emma Frost-esque threat in her own right.  But love makes you do crazy things.

Daigoro

3 Years old and he already has a body count in the double digits.  Makes a dad proud.  This one  to be exact:
