When I was 8ish the Disneys Aladdin game had Abu follow Aladdin everywhere but act on his own and not take damage

Rather than giving my brother a turn, I gave him the second controller and told him he could be Abu

So, that but non-evil

Babysitting a 4 year old has me convinced that what video games need is “little buddy mode,” where a kid can have a character that just jogs along with you and can help/get their own encouraging score but cannot be harmed

Mario Galaxy, Odyssey, and Bowser's Fury have this.
I've heard bad things about Hat Mode - but I've no idea

But good to know
I spent a lot of hours on the Aladdin and Lion King games. Those were fun.
