Is this really necessary? The topic is pretty much covered here. --Trogga 22:45, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

And, what's more, this is a misleading and inaccurate name, as I discussed here. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 22:46, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
Jay, can't find your discussion there. Anyway, this is a somewhat random list. Some are variations on the character (Old-Timey Strong Bad, Strong Badman), some are roles the character has played (Dangeresque, Tragic Clown Dog), some are just nicknames (Wrestleman) - and that's JUST Strong Bad! Nicknames should be noted on Nicknames, character variations on Characters or off the Minor Character Variations page, and roles played noted on the character's own page. So no, this page really doesn't need to exist. Whether it needs to be deleted, however, is a different story. It might be worthwhile to have a listing like this, though with a little more rigor. I haven't given it enough thought to make a proposal. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:40, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
Jay's discussion can be found right at the bottom. --DorianGray
I saw that, but was expecting to find a discussion of "alter ego", but I see he's saying the same argument applies here. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:49, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
What about renaming it to something like "Character Variations"?
I've restricted and redesigned the page to only "alter egos" as accurately and with as much objectivity as possible. I realize there could be a few revert wars over what is an alter ego and what isn't, but I'm removing the {{tobedeleted}} tag for now. — Lapper (talk) 18:44, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
