Forums: Index Brawl Talk Which characters are actually clones?

Im kinda confused because some people say this and that and im not sure —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

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:

Melee clones:

  • Marth/Roy
  • Falco/Fox
  • Link/Young Link
  • Captain Falcon/Ganondorf
  • Pikachu/Pichu
  • 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)

I think you hit it right on the nail 13375poolR. You state everything correctly. I wholeheartedly support your post. SapphireKirby777 ~Behold! -.- 18:13, 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)
