What do Spock, Dana Scully, Beaker and Chewbacca have in common? No, not a love for best friends who believe in the truth or even an appreciation for apple-scented hair conditioner. They all made Wired magazine’s Best Sidekicks List — which also included the likes of K.I.T.T., Willow Rosenberg, Waylon Smithers, Samwise Gamgee and Robin.
Here’s what they had to say about our favorite Wookiee:
Sidekick to Han Solo
STRENGTHS: Size, muscle, mechanical aptitude, and supreme navigational skills.
WEAKNESSES: Lacks pants and is largely incoherent. Also, Chewie is indirectly responsible for that 1978 holiday special.
