I read your post via metafandom, then went outside to do some work, and thought and thought about it. If I were to do a list like yours, I think the favorite characters would be mostly female, and mostly secondary characters.

...and now I'm wondering: do I gravitate toward sidekicks and secondary characters because that's where we find more female characters, or do gravitate toward female characters because, in my fandoms, that's who the sidekicks/secondary characters tend to be?

I don't know if that makes sense. What I'm trying to say is that I'm not sure if I have the favorites I do because they're female (and just happen to be "secondary" in the narrative) or because they're sidekicks/secondary characters (and just happen to be female)?

Anyway, it's really interesting to think about. Thanks for this post!
