5 worst mascots, I decided to do a post of the 5 best mascots/sidekicks. But you know what the problem is? There aren't that many good ones! For this entire week, looking for any sidekick who wasn't annoying or a detriment to their teammates, there was only one name on my list - Transformers's Sparkplug.
Introduced at the end of the first episode of Transformers, along with his son, Spike, Sparkplug worked on an oil rig attacked by the Decepticons in their search of energy sources. At first trying to fight off the invading robots by throwing wrenches, the oil workers were forced off the rig by Megatron. Sparkplug was pinned against a wall by Rumble, but when the robot knocks Spike into the water as well, Sparkplug kicks rumble off him and dives in after his son. Later, when the humans are saved by the Autobots, Sparkplug and Spike join them in fighting against the Decepticons.
