    They stole the show, so isn't it about time to give them their OWN show?

    We've all had that moment: We're watching a movie, enjoying the story, then a side character comes in and straight-up steals the entire show from the main character(s) and we find ourselves thinking, "Wait — I want to see THEIR whole story, though?!"

    Well, recently redditor u/Trxxi asked, "What fictional character deserves a spinoff the most?" and the answers were — somehow — all correct. Every single one.
