Cut... Cut... Merge... CutÖ This sections should be renamed C-C-C-Cutlist! As you can see, a rather large number of items were cut this week. It seems for every good trope we have there is also a superfluous one. Take note, Tropers. Not everything is Tropable (Is that a word?) and you donít need to take every aspect of a trope and make it a separate trope.
Today, we focus the limelight on Clone Degeneration, a speculative trope and a rather debilitating disease. Clone Degeneration is what happens when one clones something: a copy is simply not as good or as effective as the original. As such, clones seem to break down quickly or tend to suffer illnesses that the original wouldn't as they lack the defenses. What would be much worse are clones of clones, or even a recurring system of copies, each one more degraded than the last. Sometimes the trope is even justified, as the clone degradation is due to a "kill-switch" or a timed shelf-life that the clone's creator implemented. So, yes. Clone Degeneration is a bad thing.

The reason that we blame everything on Matrix is because it actually is his fault." Add More Here:
