Pure fun without romace

I personally love the BFF thing my Chiss agent has with Kaliyo. At least in their heads, they're two hot alien chicks off picking up men and tricking them into giving them expensive presents together. (Although I'm still not wholly convinced that they don't periodically get drunk and hook up. But that's another story all together.)

I also like how Kira plays off a female JK, from the little I've seen.

I also love Lokin forever and ever. And I suspect that my sadistic SW has no less fun tormenting Vette than her male counterparts. (I feel sort of bad but then...eh, easy darkside points.)

Oh, Guss and Forex are both good. I hated Guss' recruitment line but when I got to talking...he's just about the cuddliest fish I ever met. Such a sweetheart.

And M1-4X had me in stitches. There was a quest in Tatooine where I actually had to stop to get the laughter/tears out of my system, after I saved a young woman from a bombing:

Do some companions actually respond, with irritation, to multiclicking? That was my favorite part of Blizzard games for a long time - harassing Jim Raynor and Arthas and so on with a zillion clicks - but I long ago stopped trying it in BioWare games.

yeah some of them do seem to get annoyed, but it seems to be a random line thing

scorpio: continue to irritate and i will cease to acknowledge your existance
vector: that's not neccisary
kaliyo: don't get all needy on me

Tharan. Sure, I can see how he can get on the nerves of some people, but I find him actually pretty amusing in an odd-couple-heterosexual-life-partner kind of way. He stole the scene against Captain Valon, definitely.

And I totally trolled him when he wanted my Consular to sign something to get out of his debts. Lost two affection points, but it was so worth it.

Have to agree. He is not my favorite from "pure fun" point of view but compared to other JC companions - he is hilarious!

They do. 4X's is particularly funny. "Don't worry, sir, my armored exterior is completely impervious to your touch, no matter how persistant!"

Back on the subject of Fun Companions, I would also like to nominate Corso. For Male Smugglers he's quite funny, and you actually gain affection with him by hitting on every woman in sight. I found that bit hilarious.

Also, Mako and Gault are both very fun to be around. Especially Gault. Definitely Gault.

Ah, I missed it when they removed those lines form BG2 (For those of you who never played Baldur's Gate, if you clicked on your companion's portrait enough times, you'd eventually get lines like, "Some day Tiax will point and click." and "If a tree falls in the forest... I'll kill the bastard what done it.") I just wish they had more cool ones like that.

As far as fun companions go, 4X is a giant Metal Captain America with all the awesomeness that implies, Gault's introduction is fantastic, and I really enjoy his snarky comments, Blizz is like a little puppy dog who you just can't bare to see upset, and of course your own character has some truely fantastic lines;

The Male Sith Warrior's delivery here is just priceless, and you can tell Vette is barely biting back laughter. And of course the Sith Inquisitor and the SMuggler are just gold in that regard

Yadira Ban: My name is Yadira Ban, and I was sent here to protect the general.
Sith Inquisitor: Really? My first master tried to kill me, too.

Smuggler: Aww, did the manual have too many big words for you?

Talos LOL not only does that crack me up every time he says it, he's fun to troll, too (all those lost affection points for purposefully choosing the worst possible bloodthirsty DS responses when he's with my SI are made up for with warehouses full of cultural artifacts).

My BH just got Gault. As of right now he ranks right up there at the top of my fun-non-LI-companion list because of the snarky attitude

Talos is probably my favorite non-romance. Vector is pretty great when you're not romancing him (although my male IA would not have said no). 4X is fun. I really liked Tharan, but I have to agree that he has basically no competition from the rest of the JC companions. Aside from 4X I would probably say the trooper ones are the blandest, though.

But we're talking about fun! I am told Guss is super fun (I don't have him on my smuggler yet) but I was pretty pleasantly surprised by how much I like Risha. She and my smuggler totally do each other's hair and gossip about what a colossal dork Corso is, I am sure of it.

Looks like there are only 2 of them, really likable from non-romansable companions.
