Forum:Which characters are actually clones?
Well, it's sorta like this:
Back when I was a young boy, we only had a washboard, and a very thin cow. So one day, my pap tells me that he bought me a video game system he afforded by selling crack in the slums of Midgar. In it was Super Smash Brothers Melee. But in order to play it, I had to run some crack for the Sabres gang, your typical urban wasp mafia. To make a long story short, after I defeated the Goat king and saved Princess Tesla from the fires of eternal doom, Pope Pious XIII explained to me over dinner with Nelson Mandela that a clone is sorta like the moon. That was a deep analogy I hardly think anybody alive (save, perhaps, Tony Blair) could understand. So I'm gonna cut to the chase:
- Link/Young Link
- Captain Falcon/Ganondorf
- Mario/Doctor Mario/Luigi
Brawl clones: There's some controversy about this one. Some people on this wiki think there are no clones in Brawl. I'd say there probably aren't in a technical sense, particularly not by the standards of a strict Melee clone. Some characters share obvious similarities, like Mario and Luigi, Link and Toon Link, and even character doublets like Sheik/ZSS and Charizard/Bowser. The best answer is there aren't strict clones in Brawl, but some characters may be classified by a standard that solves this apparent crisis of no strict clones, yet similarities. The proposed standard is the semi-clone, characters that share a number of moves (I believe the convention is ~33% similarity for semi-clone, and <50% for a clone). Take from that what you will. 13375poolR (talk) 05:54, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
Talk:Clone try this page, duh. What is a "strict" clone anyway? I don't see why Toon Link is any less of a clone than Melee's Ganondorf was. - Gargomon251 (talk) 21:24, 13 March 2009 (UTC) Only semi clones. Iron Gladiator (talk) 22:38, 23 October 2017 (EDT)
