Best Supporting Character of 2014: Butters (South Park: The Stick of Truth)

Best Supporting Character of 2014: Awarded to the year's best character who wasn't the focus of the main story.

Winner: Butters (South Park: The Stick of Truth)
Writeup by Stephen Meyerink
When it comes to a reassuring, health-restoring pat on the back, perennial put-upon Butters Stotch is your man (boy?). There's a big, funny cast all throughout The Stick of Truth, but Butters is there with you from the start, bringing his particular brand of naive enthusiasm to his paladin-ing. Whether it's a pat on the back to bring you back from the brink of death, a nervous apology after smashing the enemy in the face with a hammer, or stomping to the rescue as Professor Chaos, Butters manages hilarious and adorable with equal ease, making him a handy choice for RPGFan's Best Supporting Character.


Runner-up: Kyoko Kirigiri (Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc)
Runner-up: Kyoko Kirigiri (Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc)
Writeup by John McCarroll
How can you truly have a companion if you can't trust anyone around you? That's the dilemma with Kyoko Kirigiri, the mysterious girl who doesn't even know why she was admitted to Hope's Peak Academy. Her role in the mystery unfolding there is intertwined with the story, so we can't go into detail about why she is so important to the other characters without spoiling the game, but her aloofness is there for a reason. Throughout each step of the game, Kyoko seems to be a half-step ahead of the rest of the party. The question is simple: Why?
