Crown the King of Sidekicks ~ Ryodan is the Baddest Badass

      So, in a landslide victory, 600 to 60 votes. Ryodan kicked everyone’s assess.  Not that I ever had any doubts. I mean, come on.  It’s Ryodan.  Still, his competition was fierce, furry, and frankly, weak compared to his badassness of the Supernatural Sidekicks :snickers:  I know that Ryodan is probably pissed as …

Supernatural Sidekick Smackdown Finale ~ Ryodan vs Jenks

  So, the competition was a little lopsided.  That’s what happens when you use Random.org to choose the match-ups.  If I had to do it all over again, would I adjust the matchups to be more even?  Like Gargoyle against Gargoyle, Guns against Guns, Magic vs Magic. Where is the fun in that?  Isn’t it …

Andrea Nash vs Ryodan

I have received comments and emails saying they don’t feel that Ryodan should be in this contest, and that he shouldn’t win because he isn’t a sidekick.  I agree that he isn’t really a sidekick, however, he was nominated, and voted for–so I can’t exactly remove him from the contest, that would cheating or something …

Supernatural Sidekick Smackdown ~ An Addendum to the VBC

  It has been brought to my attention through emails that The Supernatural Sidekick Smackdown should have given credit for the spurring of Badass Book Reviews idea that sidekicks should get some love too.  I enjoyed the fun of the Alpha Showdown, run by the Vampire Book Club, and after thinking about it, decided it …

Bob the Skull vs Ryodan the ?

Onto the Second Rounds!  The first bout, needs no introductions.  Bob and Ryodan are both pretty well known in the Urban Fantasy genre.

Supernatural Sidekick Smackdown Bracket
