Top 7 Evil Clones In Gaming

GS writes: You know these guys: imposters, rivals, and doppelgängers to protagonists in video games. They look like the hero, but with a darker appearance to show just how evil they are. They have all your skills, know everything about you and can anticipate your next move. Sometimes, the hardest and most difficult battles are against yourself.

The following list comprises characters that steal identity for personal gain, embody a protagonist’s dark side or set to prove that, despite similarities, they are the superior version. Some shadows choose not to follow in the footsteps of their other half, and so here are the greatest evil video game clones! (Metal Gear Solid, PC, PS3, Retro, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Meat Boy, Wii, Xbox 360, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link)

Liquid Snake is a good evil clone

Starkiller from Force unleashed 2, and Carla Ramones are not good clones, they are half-assed

Liquid was never evil he just felt like he was the inferior clone when in all actuality Solid Snake was.
MariaHelFutura  +   923d ago
I beat the sh!t out of Liquid at the end of 4. Barehanded.
Whitefeather  +   923d ago
That was Ocelot, Liquid died in MGS1.
MariaHelFutura  +   923d ago
Well I beat him up pretty bad too then!!

On a serious note. I never played MGS1 and I swear his name is Liquid Ocelot. But I haven't played MGS4 in a while.

Ocelot was pretending to be possessed by Liquid Snakes arm to make Snake think it's his responsibility to stop him. That way Solid Snake would destroy the Patriots with Ocelot which was Ocelots and Big Mamas plan all along.

One of the many reasons why MGS4 was a major let down
Snookies12  +   923d ago
@Irishguy95 - That's a joke... Right...? In no way was MGS4 a letdown. It was almost flawless. Sure, the story was confusing as hell if you didn't pay serious attention to it (and every other MGS game in the series). The graphics were amazing, the gameplay was spot-on, the locations were mind-blowing, all the cameos were wonderful, and the epic scenes never seemed to stop near the end. It's got to be in my top 5 favorite games this gen.

Yea MGS4 was amazing, and it he wasnt pretending to be possessed...the DNA took over and at times he WAS "possessed" if thats what you wanna call it.
Snookies12  +   923d ago
@Tokyo_reject - Actually I don't think that's not quite right either. Ocelot was basically "believing" what his mind was tricking him to believe. He was so convinced that Liquid was part of him, that his mind started to actually believe it. At least, that's what I got out of it.

@Whitefeather

How are you getting disagrees!!?!?! Your spot on, about everything! Well maybe not the "Liquid Snake was never evil" bit, he was kinda evil. ßut your right about everything else especially the inferior clone bit (he emphasises that ALOT). Obviously some people didn't play MGS1.

I'm a huge MGS fan so I know this stuff. He wasn't evil in my opinion just messed up in the head. He just wanted his father's attention ( I do hate that he killed Miller who was awesome). And as you pointed out he would always say Snake was the favorite and the superior one but in fact Liquid was genetically superior, that was the game's theme; GENE. That your genes do not rule who you are.

I'm an evil clone. Were not all that bad, just misunderstood.
Summons75  +   923d ago
Shadow Link was hard in OOT? Either this guy sucks at gaming or well i dunno what else because Shadow Link was a push over.

Liquid is still the best "evil" clone.

Wow. No Alucard from symphony or Trevor, grant DaNasty, syphora? Weak

is sephiroth a clone? and if he is why is he not #1
Snookies12  +   923d ago
Lol you're right, Sephiroth was an evil clone of Sephiroth (err, the first Sephiroth). Though I'm not sure that counts since the original was kind of evil as well or at least went crazy...

The original was genetically modified, but not exactly a clone. His later iterations are clones in that they mimic him, but they're not clones in the traditional sense.

And they were all evil, as Snookies said, so it kinda takes away from the usual view of an evil clone.
vork77  +   922d ago
fine then cloud lol i know cloud was a clone
senzen  +   923d ago
Liquid Snake is still the best
senzen  +   923d ago

Deeke  +   923d ago

Tokyo_reject  +   923d ago
Gangar isnt a clone.....he's a Ghost of a pokemon....
If you wanna go a clone with Pokemon, it woulda been Mewtwo.
But hey....pretty much NON are actual clones except Liquid .
Cool List non the least ^^
