Notable False Characters
False King Statue
When the real King Harkinian and I.M. Meen wipe out the invading Subspace Army forces, the Shadow Bugs that created the troops retreat and possess The King's statue, bringing it to life. The King and I.M. Meen laugh at the invaders' defeat until they see the possessed statue, shocked.
The False King Statue is larger than the real King Harkinian, with its attacks doing more damage, but otherwise looks the same, minus the rocky structure. After defeat, the Shadow Bugs vaporize, and the statue's head crumbles off. It's the only false character to not have a purple tint.
False Nostalgia Critic
The clone is created by the Irate Gamer, who trophied the real Critic. It shoots a butterfly Tommy Wiseau is chasing after, getting his attention. Madotsuki appears and finds Tommy and the Critic clone, noticing that Tommy is about destroy the copy. Unfortunately, Madotsuki mistakes the clone for the real Nostalgia Critic, forcing Tommy Wiseau to fight both Madotsuki and the false Nostalgia Critic alone.
When the false Nostalgia Critic is defeated, like in SSBB Subspace Emissary, the trophy simply degrades back into Shadow Bugs. Madotsuki is saddened by this, and Tommy Wiseau utters another Wiseauism.
False Irate Gamer
A shadow bug copy of the Irate Gamer, also fought at Bicycle Tracks.
After it trophies the Nostalgia Critic, it lures Madotsuki and Tommy Wiseau into a trap and turn them into trophies. It later pops out of a bush to fight the three heroes. Nostalgia Critic taunts the Irate Gamer clone by laughing maniacally until the clone gains more Shadow Bugs, tripling its size. Being giant, the false Irate Gamer is very heavy and strong. However, his size and weight can easily be exploited.
