Ignoring my distaste of the second word used, I get the overall feel for what you're saying. I tend to believe that the primary villain is a little more important in the game as a whole. They usually wind up being decently distinct in terms of aesthetics and mechanics, which is a nice little bit. They usually wind up better representing the series they come from as a whole as well. Some games have a harder time doing this, and I do think it's a tossup between them or the leading female. As a general rule though either of them tends to represent a bit more than whomever the leading sidekick is. You see a lot more calls for Palutena or Hades/Medusa than you do for Dark Pit, arguably the closest to being a sidekick, for instance. And Zelda/Ganondorf tend to be included over Toon/Young Link. Etc. Not an absolute, for sure, just the way it tends to play out.

I'd argue that it depends on the series, but I picked Bros because I'm following the Mario series model.

64: Mario + Luigi

Melee: Peach + Bowser

If we were to discuss something like Zelda though, I'd put Ganondorf in before Zelda, but aim to include them both.

If we were talking about Kid Icarus, Palutena in before all.

Hence why I said it's definitely a tossup mostly between villain and female lead. Typically the sidekick tends to take backseat unless villain/female lead aren't possible options (though I do think Luigi should be in before Bowser/Peach, I can't think of many other games like that off the top of my head). Wouldn't mind coming up with a list of those three roles (as well as the main one) for series though.
