The most remarkable thing about Sykes is that is score matches his rank

Fear/Intimidation Factor
Sykes's only decent score.  He's essentially a mob boss, but he's got guns... and attack dogs... so... that's sort of scary...? It's a middle of the road score, but it's the best Sykes has.

Character Design
Were the animators phoning it in? Sykes looks as though they looked up racist Jewish stereotypes then slathered them on top of a CEO.  I understand that they wanted to separate Oliver & Co. from the original subject matter, but Sykes is so far removed from a street thug, and he's CONSTANTLY portrayed in shadow... I've been looking at stills and video of this guy for weeks and I still have trouble picking out anything memorable about him, visually or otherwise. 

Where are you Sykes? Can't see you in all that shadow...

Wit & Quotability
Nothing.  NOTHING.  I could find LITERALLY NOTHING memorable or quotable for this guy to make a single quote graphic.  Congrats, Sykes, lowest score in this category of any candidate. 

Is he wearing eyeshadow?

Memorability
I'm not going to beat a dead horse, you've already heard me harp on how little this guy has going for him. Sykes' character writing is beyond skint, there's nothing to him, no real motivations or backstory whatsoever. Lowest score in this category of any candidate.  What ends up keeping Sykes from being the very bottom of the list, is that he's not as pathetic as #40. 

Sorry, your Dobermans don't impress me, dude.

Sidekicks
Sykes has dogs.  Attack dobermans.  They're boring, have no more personality than Sykes himself. Want to see cool attack dobermans? Go watch Up

Song
Sykes has no song, so he gets to have the neutral score.
