Identity theft: Video-game characters that look alike

An infinite number of monkeys sitting in front of typewriters (or laptops) will eventually recreate the complete works of William Shakespeare. But how many artists does it take to copy the design of established video-game characters? Apparently not a lot.

Let's explore nine examples of "borrowed" fashion choices, accessories, and vehicles from classic titles.

The story is too old to be commented.

Man, I had no idea Street Fighter blatantly ripped off all of these other, more well-known, fighting games.

For shame, Capcom.

SFII came out in 91 while all those other franchises like World Heroes and Art of Fighting came out around 92-93.

I'm assuming that you're being sarcastic since all of the Capcom creations here came first. This was back during the time that Capcom was worthy of respect and adulation.

I know! Capcom is so bad at ripping other companies off they did before the other company could release their games!

Where are FeiLong and the other Bruce Lee clones?

Adventure Island and Wonder Boy were both developed by Westone/Escape.

Where's the Deadly Moves comparison?
That game had the fake Ryu, E.Honda, Chun-Li, & even the boss fights you with his arms crossed a la Bison.
