The Superior Sidekick Elite Eight

It's getting serious now, bracketeers. Based on your voting, we are ready to eliminate another handful of competitors and reveal the Elite Eight competitors in the Superior Sidekick bracket. Here are the results.

Comics
1 Dick "Robin" Grayson (Batman) vs 5 James "War Machine" Rhodes (Iron Man)
3 Alfred Pennyworth (Batman) vs 18 Baymax (Big Hero 6)

Video Games/Anime
4 Alphonse Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist) vs 8 Kazooie (Banjo Kazooie)
2 Yoshi (Super Mario) vs 3 Tails (Sonic The Hedgehog)

Books/Movies
1 John Watson (Sherlock Holmes) vs 13 Chewbacca (Star Wars)
6 R2-D2 (Star Wars) vs 10 Mushu (Mulan)

TV
8 Pikachu (Pokemon) vs 20 Meowth (Pokemon)
23 Sokka (Avatar: The Last Airbender) vs 30 Ron Stoppable (Kim Possible)



It looks like the big takeaway from today was the strength of the Star Wars sidekicks, with both Chewbacca and R2-D2 winning their match ups and meeting in the finals from the Books/Movies conference. Popular characters like Pikachu and Robin moved forward along with underdogs like Sokka and Kazooie. This next round of voting will decide the winners from each conference and set up the Final Four Superior Sidekicks. Here are this week's match ups.
