can you consider Tobi and Pein from Naruto as Char clones? They share similarities to Char Aznable too you know.

Ali-Al Saachez from Gundam 00 counts too. He pilot red mobile suits and one of The Hero's Arch-Enemy. He also a subverts of the Zeta-type Char Clone due to being Setsuna's Evil Mentor when he was a Child Soldier.

John Devil, Written over 100 years before the original Char Aznable, and yet all Henri de Belcamp lacks is a mask and he would fit in at a Char Clone convention perfectly.

I've added this to the John Devil page under YMMV.

Would it be too much of a stretch to see Asuka as a sort of gender-flipped Char?

- Ace Pilot;

- Custom red mecha;

- Blonde/Redhead (depending on medium);

- Even thought they fight on the same side, Asuka harbours some sentiment of rivalry on the main character (and Rei too, because of their sync rates)

I suppose those elements are not entirely occasional, given that Char Clones are a particular kind of Mecha trope. It just happens to be subtle, among all the more blatant deconstruction of everything else around it.

Would Griffith be considered a Char Clone, he has some of the tropes pegged.

Quatre is not a Char clone. Just because he's blonde does not make him a Char Clone, seriously. This is Square Peg Round Trope.

Isn't his name a direct take-off on one of the other Char Clones (Quattro?) While I haven't watched the Gundam show at issue, the description of Quatre on this wiki sounds kind of like "imagining someone with a Char-like background, but who isn't evil", and the name is a clue.

No, he's really nothing like Char at all. His name is part of the Numerical Theme Naming, not a reference to Quattro (Who isn't a Char clone anyway, but Char himself, but that's another thing altogether...).

What about Racer X?
09:43:48 AM Dec 19th 2011
Yeah, I thought that too, but Speed Racer isn't even listed among the examples. Racer X fits this archetype to a T and predates the "original" by about two decades. Surely he at least deserves a mention?

Prince Sharkin was inspired by Flash Gordon? How do you figure? The only thing they have in common is blond hair.
