Fake Fighters are grayscale clones created by Dr. Robotnik in Sonic the Fighters. These fighters are grayscale clones of the characters that appear in the game, they are encountered during the story mode when a playable character reaches their respected stage, or when when two players pick the same the same character in multiplayer mode. Upon reaching their home stage, Robotnik will appear in a UFO-like vehicle and zap the player with a green ray, causing a grayscale clone to fall out of the player character, both characters will then be suprised by the other and begin to fight.
These clones use the same moveset as the player and are completely alike to the character they originate from, the only difference being the color.
