"Behold my powers! I am the most powerful Pokémon in the world!"

You, troper. Come closer.

So, you have decided to enter into my lair. You dare to approach me? I am Mewtwo, the most powerful Pokémon in the world. ...Very well. If you are so curious, than I shall tell you my story. But be warned: if I discover intent within you to tell my story to another human, then I will erase your memory.

My story has been told for many years, in many forms, and in different ways. I am a legendary Pokémon, and humans know little about me. My story begins with scientists. Yes, the humans who created me...

Although many stories have been told about me, one thing remains consistent: I am a descendant of Mew, purportedly the ancestor of all Pokémon. And the moment I could, I destroyed the lab where I was born or created and escaped.


You wish to know more about the stories in which you humans portray me? It may not matter much, as I sense your curiosity growing ever stronger. And with it, the desire to share my secrets. I will take care of that afterwards.

My first appearance was in the Pokémon Red and Blue video games. In those games a young trainer read the scattered chronicle of my creation in Cinnabar Island's Pokémon Mansion. The trainer would encounter me much later in Cerulean Cave. Many years later I appeared somewhere else Pokémon X and Y having taken refuge in Pokémon Village's Unknown Dungeon in Kalos.

Upon my introduction in Red and Blue, I was by far at my most powerful, being nearly impossible to defeat by any of your foolish lesser Pokémon. While in later generations that fool Arceus has overtaken me, X and Y have given me two new Mega Evolutions that allow my power to far surpass that of even the Creator. In my X form, my body increases in bulk, and my physical strength far surpasses any known Pokémon. In my Y form, many of my traits regress to make me more closely resemble my template (or mother), Mew. My appearence becomes much smaller as my head becomes much larger, with most of my mass having been converted into brainpower. This enhances my mental capabilities far beyond previously documented limits. In both forms, my higher offensive stat even surpasses the alien Deoxys in its Attack Form, who previously outclassed me in terms of psionic capabilities. I am also stronger than other legendaries' Mega and Primal forms. I have even found a way to overcome the Dark Type, which I admit worried me on some level for a time. Finding almost all of my powers all but useless against them was… unsettling. As such, I mastered Aura and created the Miracle Eye technique, both allowing me to overcome them.


I have also appeared in many other video games. Perhaps my most well-known side game appearance is in Super Smash Bros. Melee, where I was able to use my mental powers to compete against Nintendo's greatest heroes. Unfortunately, the game designers made me far, far weaker. Even a pitiful Jigglypuff could defeat me. Possibly as a consequence of this, I was replaced with a mere Lucario in the games that followed. Of course, there happens to be Dummied Out resources related to me as discovered in Brawl. Also, a group of loyal fans have flawlessly re-integrated me into their Brawl variant, and made me into the Worthy Opponent I deserve to be. Despite my general disdain for your species, I admit that I am honored by their work. In fact, the creator himself decided to honor me by adding me to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS as a downloadable character, and all have praised my return. I even met "your boy" alongside another little boy on my way back, the latter who surprisingly has a lot in common with me, and who despite all the tragedy and the loss that cursed his life managed to carry on thanks to the love of his friends and family. Without them, he probably would have become like me… If only she… No. It is no use to think about that, it will not bring her back. I am sorry, Amber…I enter the fifth outing only to face an entity far beyond my power and can cripple even gods. I can only hope that the one called Kirby can free me from this accursed prison, defeat the imposters posing as me, and allow me to deliver the final blow to Galeem and his antithesis.

Another of my appearances is in Pokémon Conquest, within the region of Ransei. As the Warriors of Ransei forge Links with Pokémon rather than capture them forcibly, I found the region to my liking, although the portrayal is somewhat… anachronistic. Regardless, I was able to determine the presence of a Warrior who would be worthy of my presence; thus, once Warlord Kenshin of Illusio had shown management prowess that I deemed worthy, I constructed the Mystery Rock to await his challenge. I also participated in the Ferrum Battles in Pokkén Tournament, but got deceived by a mysterious hooded female human who fused my body with an orange gem filled with the Devil Gene and took control over my will. It was quite humiliating to be this woman's pet, but yet strangely… satisfying. My Shadow form was quite reminiscent of what the fools of the Cipher crime syndicate did to the mystical guardian of the seas. And yes I encountered the one called Kazuya, the carrier of the matrilineal note  Devil Gene himself.

You humans also seem to have a knack for animated television shows created in order to sell merchandise, and Pokémon: The Series is no exception. Fortunately, said anime was able to develop me into a somewhat deep and very well-respected character. Pokémon: The First Movie chronicled my creation by Dr. Fuji and my subsequent attempt to search for my purpose in life. During my growth, I discovered that I was created by humans and not Arceus, and that Pokémon were little more than willing slaves to humans. Angry at these circumstances, I invited the strongest trainers in the region to my New Island headquarters to toy with them for my purposes. Using special Poké Balls of my creation, I stole their Pokémon and produced superior clones, which I would then command to annihilate my new foes in battle. My reason for this entire endeavor? It was simply to search for my purpose and prove that I was a superior being, even more than Mew itself. For the English version, in order to make said movie more accessible to children, my motivations were changed to simply Take Over the World by repopulating the planet with my clones. However, in both versions, Ash Ketchum helped me realize the error of my ways; I learned that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant, and it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are. With that, my clones and I would live in peaceful coexistence with the humans and their Pokémon. I would return in the anime special named, fittingly, Pokémon: Mewtwo Returns, where I would join Ash and struggle against my former master Giovanni once again. There I would disappear for a time, far away from the prying eyes of humans.

Many years later, the humans made Pokémon: Genesect and the Legend Awakened, which depicted another Mewtwo with the ability to Mega Evolve. But this Mewtwo was less savage and more feminine than yours truly, with many of her backstory elements simply being retellings of my own. The existence of another one of my kind both angers and captivates me. As I will teach you in a matter of seconds, I am the true and superior Mewtwo, and I wish to challenge her in battle to drive this point home. Yet, the possibility of Mewtwo reproduction intrigues me (if biology even allows for it).note 

Then, it would seem my return became an inevitability. Somehow or another, I found myself captured by one of your kind for his own purposes; to fuse humans and Pokemon together as the next cycle of "evolution" for your race. Those responsible for my capture, in spite of all that had occurred, chose to free me instead. Sadly, the one called "Harry Goodman" was injured by my captor's Pokemon, in spite of my attempts to save him. It was witnessing his partner, a small Pikachu, beg for me to save his life that I came to understand further of the bonds between humans and their Pokemon. Thus, I fused Harry's consciousness into the Pikachu, blocking his memories in the process, and hoping that the man's son would find him and seek the truth of what had transpired note  My captor chose to hide the fact that I was the one and true Mewtwo, acting as if he created me. His failure to grasp such was a fatal mistake, for though he captured me and used my very powers to enact his schemes of madness by taking over my own body, the Pikachu and the boy were able to free me. Thus, I could undo the damage wrought, and return things to as they were meant to be. Then, the time came for my tale to be retold again, this time for those of a newer generation. They even chose to bring back the one who provided my voice the second time for this purpose; a clear testament to how your kind at least has some sense.

But it seems that my fate with Ash is forever intertwined more than I cared to admit. Either sometime after my encounter with Giovanni, or after my fleeing of Rhyme City, I took to finding Pokemon whom humans had callously abandoned and neglected, and chose to give them a place to heal. The boy and his new friend, an eager human named Goh, encountered me while searching for the whereabouts of Mew. They both sought to improve their understanding of Pokemon and chose to challenge me (rather foolishly of course), and found their Lucario and Cinderace lacking enough to best my skills. Yet their refusal to give up and care for those under their watch impressed me. They may be humans, but they proved themselves to be the best of them that day. As such, I revealed my role in rescuing those that were not so fortunate to have trainers like them, and granted them the gift of retaining their memories of me. Perhaps our paths will cross again someday. And when they do, I expect them to be even greater.

Another series, known as Pokémon Origins, depicted me as more of a feral, superpowered animal - a much closer depiction to the games. Yet I was captured by Red, who managed to defeat me using his Charizard - though only after inducing a Mega-Evolution. I am proud of his skills, but do not wish to obey the orders of any pathetic human. It is implied the capture only took place so that he could obtain sufficient data for the quest placed upon him for one Professor Samuel Oak; however our encounter took place in the final "File" of that series, and my present state in that depiction is unknown.

I have also appeared in many other media, such as the manga series Pokémon Adventures. This portrayal would gradually evolve to resemble my anime portrayals, and I gained the ability to speak telepathically.

Enough talking. Now we fight!

*cue battle music*

A wild MEWTWO appears!

Mewtwo used Trope Overload!

  • Ambiguous Gender: The first Legendaries to have a confirmed physical sex was in the fifth generation. Before then, any portrayal of me could have either been biologically sexless, with a sex, or even hermaphroditic. A majority of my portrayals which give me masculine voices, but the Mewtwo that fought the Genesect Army was given a more feminine voice. Whether that was a second Mewtwo or a chosen change is unknown. It is worth noting, however, that most viewers watching my first special assume that Nidoqueen and Rhyhorn were mates and had many young. However, the Nidoqueen children have purple eyes, unlike their mother. This would also explain why it was so important for the young pokemon to remember where they originated from, as they may have inherited my moves and other features as well.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: Some continuities depict me as literally a child born from Mew. Be it my parent in a maternal or genetic sense, she and I do not see eye-to-eye on humanity and are bitter enemies.
  • Art Evolution: My depictions in the first games were a bit different than the form I have before you today. Indeed, human Ken Sugimori originally depicted me with a much bigger head and smaller body, probably to emphasize my intellect and psionic powers. However, after my apparition in the popular animated series and films which gave me more humanoid proportions, the games eventually adopted this form as well.
  • Artificial Human: In some continuities, I have confirmed human genes in my genetic makeup. However, in other continuities this is merely speculation.
  • Badass Adorable: My Y-type Mega Evolution form reveals some of Mew's features within me. Humans of your world have also compared it to creatures from beyond your Earth, or the creature known as Kid Buu. But though my Mega form may look softer than my normal body, I can assure you that I am much stronger in that form.
  • Badass Boast: I am the strongest Pokémon in the world. In many worlds. I was created to be such, and I will continue to announce myself as such. It is the truth. Also, in my cinematic debut, I declared myself "the new ruler of this world, the master of humans and Pokémon alike".
    • While I took on a less pompous persona in the original Japanese, I still had a few moments like this. When declaring my counterattack against the world, I stated, "I curse everything I was born upon. But this is neither an attack nor a declaration of war…! Against all of you who brought me into this world, I will… strike back."
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: In my X-type Mega Evolution, I gain the Fighting type and the ability to use martial arts techniques more adeptly than any mortal. My base attack stat is also the highest of any Pokémon in that form.
  • Beware the Mind Reader: My ability to read minds is either left ambiguous or outright portrayed. But I have certainly attacked individuals for what I've read in their minds. Soon, you will be included among them.
  • Blood Knight: By fighting I can prove my worth and show the world that I am stronger than Mew.
  • Bowdlerise: In the original Japanese version of my first film appearance, I was a confused individual wishing to prove my superiority over Mew in order to justify my existence. For the English dub, I took on a much more pompous Evil Overlord personality and wished to terminate all life on the planet to replace it with my cloned Pokémon; this was presumably to enforce Black-and-White Morality and make the film easier for children to understand. You are free to take or leave whatever you wish from either version, but when that story was presented again twenty years later, the narrative was consistently in line with the former.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: For this self demonstrating page, and that alone.
  • Brought Down to Badass: The moves made to remove the errors that made Psychic Pokémon overpowered type meant that after Generation I, I was no longer the unstoppable miracle of science I was before. Nonetheless, I remained among the strongest Pokémon, especially when Generation V gave me the Psystrike move and when my Mega Stones were discovered.
  • Breakout Character: While I am popular amongst the humans, only once could I be considered one of the main characters.
  • Cartoon Creature: Many pathetically stupid fans try to figure out which Pokemon were put into my genetic mold. One of the more popular ones being Persian, despite no proof of it. Alakazam is another, but the proof of that is apparent on my body.
  • Cloning Blues: Soon after I broke out of my tube I discovered that I was but a mere experiment for the humans who created me. As they congratulated themselves over me, I realized and that they had no plans for me beyond satisfying their own curiosity. Hearing their plans of me in their minds, I became distraught. Therefore I decided I would create my own destiny, beginning with killing those fools who decided to play God.
  • Confusion Fu: I invite you to bear witness to the listings under Elemental Powers. I know a variety of techniques with which to battle, both offensive and defensive, and may use them in whatever combination I wish.
  • Create Your Own Villain: Across countless dexes have I been described as a brutal Pokémon, a violent Pokémon. And I will not deny that I have done many deeds you humans would undoubtedly consider... unsavory. But in the end, the blame for them rests squarely on all of you. You, who created me to be your slave, your weapon, your toy. You, who subjected me to abominable experiments from the minute of my birth. You, who trap my kin in tiny balls, letting them out solely to fight their own kind. Certain events may have swayed my perspective to be more tolerant of your kind, but I will never forget what you did to me.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: This was what fueled my entire rebellion against the world in my cinematic debut. In the Japanese version this continued to be the motivation for my ordeal, while in the English dub I decided on a purpose - to purge the world of human filth and rule over it with my clones.
  • Distaff Counterpart: In the anime's continuity, the second Mewtwo has a similar background to me, but assumes a feminine telepathic voice and a much more compassionate personality, although she developed a distrust of humans similar to my own. Despite this, she did not seek to prove herself worthy or repopulate the world with clones, instead choosing a more stable path and associating with natural-born Pokémon in New Tork City. I have no opinion on the matter or towards her in particular other than that, as stated before, it would most certainly intrigue me to prove myself as the superior Mewtwo towards those who would be foolish enough to dare suggest otherwise.
  • Downloadable Content: After many years of absence, I have finally returned to the battlefield as one of the Super Smash Brothers. My presence in this game was not initially planned, but human director Masahiro Sakurai eventually chose me as a post-release character for this game, in answer to many people asking for my glorious return. You fool humans were so pleased by this announcement that some of you even purchased different versions of the same game only to play as me. Your envy knows no limits…
  • Elemental Powers: My mastery of the elemental forces of Pokémon extends to control over Ice, Fire, Electric, Ground, Rock, Ghost, Grass, Bug, Flying, Fighting, and of course, Psychic.
  • Enemy Mine: As I previously said, I allied myself with Ash Ketchum against Giovanni in Pokémon: Mewtwo Returns. I have also allied myself with the trainer Red in Pokémon Adventures, in a similar capacity.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: My power has made me one of the most famous Pokémon to this day.
  • Evil Is Cool: While I may have the most savage heart among Pokémon, I get the respect from fans that I rightfully deserve.
  • Evil Sounds Deep and Raspy: My telekinetic voice adopts a strong voice with a bit of edge to it. Depending on your memories, it either resembles the voice of Jay Goede, Dan Green or (in Japanese or from Super Smash Bros.) Masachika Ichimura or Keiji Fujiwara.
  • Fatal Flaw: You humans may see pride as one such flaw, but I do not. I am the most powerful Pokémon in existence and I will let everyone know it.
  • Final Boss: It is only fitting I often be portrayed as such, as defeating me would be the ultimate test of any trainer's power. In my games of origin, I await trainers in the Cerulean Cave to test their prowess after they have become Champion of Kanto. I also appear before young trainers from Johto in the same locationnote . In Kalos, I once again appear in a very similar role, which is only shared by the serpent Zygarde - a much weaker Pokémon than me, and therefore not as worthy of the Final Boss title. I have also stood as the final test of power for trainers participating in the Puzzle League, to rangers operating in Oblivia, and those traveling to the Pokémon Stadium. I even took an unlikely alliance with the Triforce of Power and what seems to be a Mega Evolution of the Koopa king to serve as the ultimate challenge for the Super Smash Brothers.
  • Foil
    • The Gerudo king Ganondorf has many interesting mirrors to myself. Though we both possess vast intellect and incredible power, I prefer to use my Psychic-type abilities against my opponent, whilst he prefers to use his body to deal damage himself. We even possess contrasting transformations, as used in Super Smash Bros.; I utilize my Y-type Mega Evolution for an enhanced Psystrike, whilst he utilizes the Triforce of Power for a massive, Tauros-esque bestial form.
  • For the Evulz: In the Japanese version of my first film, I took pleasure in offering my imprisoned trainers a chance to escape from New Island… if they could make it through the raging storm outside, that is.
    • As for the English version, I might have spared the humans the ordeal of traveling through the storm, but, nonetheless, I made no illusions that they would be spared my wrath and only gave them the offer so that I could watch them squirm.
  • Game-Breaker: Pokémon's long history means it has many examples of this trope, from numerous strong Pokémon to exploitable gameplay mechanics, but I remain the most famous example of this trope. Being a Psychic-type in the first Generation of games was already enough to make me this due to errors the developers made meant there were no attacks that did effective damage against them and the way the stats were arranged gave them an unfair advantage. But even among they I was considered too powerful to be used in competitive gameplay, possessing the highest stats of any Pokémon by a wide margin that wouldn't be surpassed until Generation Six and a devastating movepool. I lost that status due to the introduction of Dark and Steel types in Generation 2, and changes to the game's mechanics to make it more balanced. But come Generation Six, I have regained that status with the introduction of Mega Evolutions. Either of the have the highest stats in the game, even surpassing Arceus, and my X form has the highest base attack and my Y form has the highest base special attack. Yet, soon the humans would discover the great dragon Rayquaza's ability to Mega Evolve and surpass even my power… while I can still hold claim to the highest offensive stats in the series, this angers me to no end and I plan to prove myself superior to that pathetic wyrm.
  • Genetically Mutated Cats Are Superior: I feel compassion for no natural being, though it should be mentioned that I do care for the cloned Pokémon I created.
  • Genius Bruiser: Naturally, my immeasurably powerful brain affords me conventional intelligence in addition to my powers. In my anime depictions I was able to rebuild the cloning labs and the machines that created me, and was able to create a new type of Pokéball that allowed me to capture Pokémon belonging to trainers already, a normally impossible task.
    • This is taken even further when I utilize my X-type Mega Evolution, as I now possess immense physical strength in addition to my intelligence and psionic capabilities.
  • Glass Cannon: The unusual environments of Super Smash Bros. force me to use an anti-gravity field to drastically reduce my weight when in motion, so much that I weigh even less than a mere Pikachu. As such, I must think of battle strategies that differ greatly than those used when on my home turf. The same applies to my fellow contestant Sephiroth, yet not that Aegis girl... I demand answers.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: My eyes start to glow when I concentrate and use the full potential of my psionic abilities.
  • Gone Horribly Right: My creators dreamed of creating the world's strongest Pokémon. They succeeded.
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: My grey and purple palette contrast with the lighter and nicer pink my genetic ancestor Mew have. According to this very database, Mew's color could represent its calm and appeasing nature while my purple is a common evil color in the video game medium however contrasted by the light grey symbolizing my neutrality and potential change of opinion.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: I am often capable of using Recover to restore lost damage, making the foolish attempt of capturing me a dangerous process indeed.
  • The Greys: Much like fellow Psychic-types Elgyem and Beheeyem, I resemble stereotypical Grey aliens in all three forms, especially in my Y-type Mega Evolution.
  • Heel–Face Turn: At the end of my first encounter with Mew, I decided it was ultimately better to live in peace than to lord my superiority over your people.
  • Heroic RRoD: In my manga portrayal, the experiments that formed me required the genetics of a human, due to a lack of sufficient genetics in their sample of Mew. As a result, the human in question - one Blaine of Cinnibar Island - was subject to experiencing bodily damage when I were to exert myselfnote . While I allied myself with that human, he devised a fluid that conserved our genetic link, with which he filled the Master Ball he would contain me in. Actions outside of that fluid for a period of time longer than roughly five minutes were deemed too much for his frail human body.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: By using my psionyc powers and my charisma, I could bend the will of weaker beings and place them under my command or, at the very least, stun them if they are powerful enough. I can also make them forget simple tasks in a single glower (a move you humans call "Disable"). Depending on the adaptation, my eyes turn gold, green or simply glow while I use this capacity.
  • I Am a Monster: Some of the most cynical of you could agree that I am indeed a monster, a "pocket" one as you call us, but for me it was a harsh, painful realization. One of the pivotal moments of this understanding of my own condition was when I compared my three large digits to those more refined of the scientists holding champagne glasses. Most of you may consider this as the only reason for my vengeful madness, but my story is actually more complex than it seems.
  • Improbable Weapon User: In my manga portrayal, I utilize the move Psywave by forming a spoon from psychic energy, which I wield as humans would a conventional weapon. When I have need for precise strikes, I am able to fragment the tip to form a fork.
  • Island Base: I constructed a fortress of solitude during the events of the first animated movie on the very same place I was born, using the ashes of men's sins as the foundations of my new empire, symbolically calling it "New Island".
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Though surely the jackal prophet Lucario is more famous for this due to his specialization, I am capable of numerous such moves including Heal Pulse, Aura Sphere, Focus Blast, Energy Ball, and Shadow Ball. The last is my anime depiction's Signature Move, despite being a Ghost-type attack.
  • Knight of Cerebus: As the summation of the movie events would imply, contrasting with the normally lighthearted anime I was a very dark and serious character, the film that featured me quickly taking a serious turn when the humans inventively encountered me.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Something you call a Zigzagged Trope, as Bug and Ghost attacks moves were meant to be this me and my fellow psychic types in Generation I, but no effective ones existed, so this trope was initially subverted. The developers made sure to fix that in Generation II, along with giving us the weakness to Dark types, which Psychic attacks could not damage, though my wide movepool means I'm still more than capable of handling them, and I do possess a weakness to them in my X-type Mega Evolution as I am part fighting.
    • On the other hand, I am very well aware of just how crafty you humans can be in your need for tyranny, so using one of these prototype devices you call "Master Balls" may allow you to imprison me without putting up a fight, how cowardly of you. Only until I figure out how to destroy my containment which won't be very long; would you really expect anything else?
  • Lightning Bruiser: My speed and psychic strength are rivaled only by one other: the mutated space virus Deoxys. Even so, it must take specialized forms for offense, defense, and agility, whereas I have no such limitations, rendering me, as I have stated before, without equal. Though it surpassed me in terms of strength and speed within these specialized forms, despite its frailty, I once again outclass it in all respects thanks to my Mega Evolutions.
  • Magic Knight: I prefer to fight using my special techniques, but I am not to be underestimated in contests of physical power. My two Mega Evolutions variably allow me to focus my skill in either area as I wish.
  • Mind Control: At one point I needed a human aid to my plans, and found a suitable puppet in the form of one of the Pokémon nurses near New Island. I released my control after she served her purpose.
  • No-Sell: In Generation I, ghosts could not so much as scratch me. Alas for me and my fellow Psychic types, this was not to last.
    • So, the sheer power of my Y-type Mega Evolution terrifies you. You seek to defeat me using the coward's way, and attempt to lull me to sleep, so as to strike me down when I am defenseless. You might be surprised…
  • Oh, Crap!: In one of my anime portrayals, I will admit to have been… startled when I realized just how much stronger the Charizard enlisted by Red had become under the effects of his X-type Mega Evolution.
  • The Power of Friendship: To my displeasure, my Mega Evolutions require the aid of a human trainer (although my counterpart in New Tork City does not seem to share this limitation). Professor Augustine Sycamore of Kalos believes this requires a bond of trust between myself and the trainer in question; although trusting a human is not something I am willing to submit to, I cannot say the same for the humans.
  • Power Floats: Floating is my preferred mode of transport; rarely do I even deign to touch the ground.
  • Powered Armor: The portrayal is not entirely consistent; nonetheless, both the anime and manga have featured my form in armor. To my dismay, the armor is under the control of Giovanni, leader of Team Rocket, and suppresses my powers; however, it does fit the trope's definition by utilizing technology to function.
  • Power Up Letdown: My X-type Mega Evolution alters my capabilities to focus on physical attacks, as well as providing me with a Same-Type Attack Bonus for Fighting-type moves. Those trainers who somehow manage to capture me when I take refuge in Kalos are displeased to learn that many of my most powerful physical attacks are not yet available in that region.
  • Psychic Powers: Humans believe me to have one of the most potent psionic minds in the Pokémon universe — no human dares test my abilities against other famous Pokémon to verify my exact aptitude. I know however that my powers are unsurpassed. An incomplete list of my powers includes telekinesis great enough to manipulate and levitate dozens of objects at once, to levitate myself to fly, to erase memories and thoughts from human minds, and to teleport entire landmasses elsewhere.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Many have noted that, in the Japanese version of my first film, I possessed a mindset and tendencies similar to a scared, confused and angry child, essentially throwing a temper tantrum as a result of my mistreatment.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Mock not my bright purple and lavender color scheme — it will only intensify the agony you feel when I destroy you. It is after all the symbolic color of my Psy type, and my Battle Aura, most of my attacks as well as my eyes share this color scheme.
  • Red Right Hand: You may have noticed the tube that runs from the top of my spine to the back of my skull. It delivers more blood to my brain to help strengthen my already formidable powers. In my Y-type Mega Evolution, this tube becomes a much larger tail-like structure to encase my greatly enlarged brain. In my X-type Mega Evolution, I simply develop a second tube.
  • Secret Art: Psystrike, which I learned during the time of the Plasma crisis. While it draws on my immense mental capabilities, it takes form as a physical attack, allowing me to vanquish those specially defensive Pokémon who believed they would survive the onslaught of Mewtwo. Had I actually been present in Unova during that time, I would have obliterated Team Plasma and plunged their horrendously evil leader into a world of unimaginable mental and physical pain.
    • In my manga portrayal, I utilize Psywave in two unique states: as a tornado of psychic energy, when confronted by a group; and as a spoon, which I wield as you humans would wield a sword, when confronted by a single opponent.
  • Squishy Wizard: It may be tempting for you humans to judge me by my slender appearance and assume that my body is frail. While I do hold the belief that the best defense is an insurmountable offense, I can assure you that my endurance is not to be underestimated and my physical strength, even before Mega Evolving, can easily lay all but the most durable of Pokémon to waste - even though all pales before the formidable power of my mind.
    • However, my physical defense is somewhat lackluster in my Y-type Mega Evolution, especially for a formidable Pokémon of my stature. I care little, though, since I can easily reduce any potential attackers to smears on the floor before they would ever get in close.
    • My X-type Mega Evolution, on the other hand, actually makes me slightly more durable statistically than my base form, and the Fighting sub-type I gain reduces my weakness to Dark and Bug-type attacks to a neutrality. In addition, I gain resistance to Rock-type attacks, further enhancing my durability, at the cost of newfound weakness to Flying- and Fairy-type attacks.
  • Super Mode: My Mega Evolutions, which enhance my already-incredible powers to surpass any other Pokémon in existence, deity or otherwise... though I begrudgingly admit that the wyrm Rayquaza is my superior statistically.
  • Superior Successor: Few are those who would call Mew, my template, an underwhelming foe, yet I surpass him in almost every way. At the cost of slightly inferior defenses, my offense is overwhelming compared to his, and I am also significantly faster.
  • Tail Slap: My rear appendage usually only serves to help me keep balance and improve my flight trajectory, but if one opponent successfully evades my psionic attacks and comes too close to me, I can use it to beat back. Other than that, however, I am not much suited for close encounter (a shameful weakness I can overcome with my X-type Mega Evolution).
  • The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny: I do recall fighting a black hedgehog after he waltzed into my domain. Once I wiped out his memory, he didn't stand a chance. Then again, I slightly pity him; he already got beat once by that Saiyan prince.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: I vaguely remember having a friendship with someone who told me, "Life is wonderful," …but why?
  • Unique Enemy: Unlike other "legendary" Pokémon, which appear to be capable of reproduction (through means unavailable to any potential captors), I am truly one-of-a-kind. In the anime based on my games of origin, another Mewtwo has shown itself, but in the games I remain the sole clone of Mew (from a storyline standpoint).
  • The Voiceless: In the English versions of the Super Smash Bros. games my dialogue simply consist of grunts and laughs provided by Masachika Ichimura and Keiji Fujiwara, who provided my full spoken dialogue in the Japanese versions. In the regular series, I have a metallic cry similar to Mew though deeper. Because of technical limitations of the time, it also sounds similar to the fungus crab Parasect, as well as some other Pokémon from the first generation; the sixth remedies this to some extent, although keeping it similar enough that veterans will be familiar.
  • Walking the Earth: Some of my depictions portray me as traveling the world seeking something; a purpose in life, a home to call my own, or a Worthy Opponent are common interpretations.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: In my first film appearance, I sought revenge for humans out of my anger that they used Pokémon as tools, and saw Pokémon as little better, being willing slaves to this system. In the English version, I thought that the best solution would be to exterminate life and replace it all with clones such as myself… Suffice to say, I had to rethink my plans after that.
  • Wolverine Publicity: It appears that I almost became the face of the Generation VI games with the reveal of my Y Mega Evolution, much like how Lucario had the honor of representing Generation IV. However, you humans found the other Mewtwo's film appearance to be controversial, possibly leading the creators to tone down my presence and make that pathetic wyrm Charizard the face of the generation instead. This is one more reason why I wish to defeat the second Mewtwo and prove that I am stronger than her.
  • World's Best Warrior: I have always been one of the most powerful Pokémon in the world, able even to vanquish the gods of space, time and antimatter. Now that I have the ability to Mega Evolve, I am once again the most powerful Pokémon in existence. None shall surpass me, though I must begrudgingly admit that Rayquaza's Mega Evolution has become my equal in terms of stats. Nevertheless, my power remains supreme amongst all Psychic-Type Pokémon. I dare you to challenge me.
  • World's Strongest Mon: I was this in my games of origin, and remained so for three generations - although the introduction of the Dark type from Johto did limit my potential, statistical superiority was another matter entirely. Although many other Legendary Pokémon have attempted to match my power, my ability to Mega Evolve allows me to claim this title once again, surpassing even the Creator Itself.
  • Worthy Opponent: One such reason I show myself to humans is to find an opponent to be considered worthy. To my dismay, my ability to Recover my lost damage frequently results in many trainers deeming me a Worthy Opponent for the Master Ball.
  • You Are Number 6: As if being a mere creation was not humiliating enough, my own name is a constant reminder of my condition of clone. But I will not reject it; so be it: I will be the second Mew, the best, the superior one, and they will all regret it.

Now, I have finished telling you all I know. But I fear your intrigue has grown too strong. To protect myself and my secrets, I will now erase your memory of me.

Mewtwo used amnesia!
Troper whited out!
