MF Robots - Crazy Life [CRACKED]
Raised as a Christian, Dewar abandoned those beliefs during high school, instead beginning to favor Rastafari which would later come to be a core part of his life. Dewar's beliefs changed once again as he began watching Spirit Science: a popular YouTube series dealing with metaphysical and spiritual theories.
MF Robots - Crazy Life
On March 2, 2016, fellow Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave, in the midst an ongoing feud with Joey Bada$$, made displeasing comments about the death of Capital Steez on Sway in the Morning, stating: "He didn't pass away; he killed himself. There's a difference. He took his own life. God gave you life, it ain't your right to take that. That's a fact. I got niggas in jail who got life sentences, they might as well be dead. They could've traded their life for his." Troy Ave then received heavy criticism from both fans and fellow artists, including A$AP Ant, A$AP Twelvyy and Styles P who wrote, amongst a series of other tweets: "If you never experienced a family [member] committing suicide you have no fukn [sic] idea about that pain. NONE." Troy Ave then replied to Styles P's comments and apologized to his fans on Twitter. In an interview on VladTV, another Brooklyn rapper, Maino, stated that mentioning Capital Steez's suicide in a song was "a bit much".
Anime & Manga Bleach: Aizen has lots of fun with this, using Kyoka Suigetsu to, on two separate occasions, fake his own death and trick Hitsugaya into stabbing Hinamori.
Pulled off to astonishing effect by Yhwach: he has Royd Lloyd, a Sternritter with the ability to mimic his appearance and memories, take his place while he is busy chatting with Aizen in Muken, leaving Yamamoto to waste his Bankai on a mere lackey. Shortly after Yamamoto realizes the deception, Yhwach shows up, vaporizes Royd (who is already dying from his wounds, but still...) and steals Yamamoto's Bankai, leaving the latter defenseless when Yhwach kills him.
In the final battle, Aizen even does this to Yhwach, using Kyoka Suigetsu to take Ichigo's place, mess up Yhwach's The Almighty and fool him into thinking he's just impaled Ichigo, since as an immortal he has nothing to fear from Yhwach's attacks. Lacking the firepower to deliver a killing blow himself, Aizen taunts Yhwach as Ichigo exploits the opening and attacks Yhwach from behind.
Shaz Domino and Guenael Lee are this to Gremmy, as they are both figments of his imagination. Shaz subverts it, however, as he recreates his own body using his power and gains free will, becoming Sternritter Σ.
Death Note: In one of the first chapters L uses one of those to trick Light into revealing the region he lives in. Unusually for the trope, the decoy doesn't look anything like the real L, but since Light doesn't know L's appearance at that point, it still fools him.
Fairy Tail: Wall Eehto of Alvarez's Spriggan 12 assaults Fairy Tail alongside two of his fellow Spriggans and faces off against the Thunder Legion and Ichiya, whereupon he reveals he, much like his robotic creations, is a Machias. After a hard battle, Wall is seemingly destroyed but manages to detonate his head and take out the Thunder Legion...and then it's revealed the real Wall Eehto was hundreds of miles away on a ship, having been controlling the robot body like a puppet so he could take out the defensive barrier the Legion were maintaining around the town. Ironically, the real Wall is a Machias himself.
Volume 4 of the political-drama manga The First President of Japan sees an Ax-Crazy Chinese general kill China's prime minister in a coup d'etat. He then finds an actor who looks and sounds enough like the Prime Minister to be the figurehead of state while the Chinese Army does the real leadership. The plan is foiled when a Japanese intelligence analyst superimposes the impersonator's face over that of the genuine article, and finds that the two don't quite line up.
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, in multiple cases. Since lots of people are cyborgs with fully mechanical bodies it's just so easy. Noteworthy are the episodes when a criminal turns out to have not only one Doombot, but a whole number of them, and the one in which the Major "dies", which is straight from the manga. The interesting thing about the former is that it turns out the process of making these doombots actually killed the original. All that's left are the doombots, and they're basically indistinguishable from the original.
.hack//SIGN does this in Episode 26. Tsukasa, Subaru and Mimiru are in a secluded location separated from the others. As the three encounter each other they find themselves being hostile. Tsukasa calls out a fake Mimiru which dissolves into several small data bugs before taking them into Morganna's lair.
Inuyasha Big Bad Naraku uses this repeatedly with dolls to the point where later in the series the heroes just assume certain incarnations are fakes.
In Mega Man Megamix, near the beginning of the The Greatest Enemy in History story arc, after Copy Mega Man foils Dr. Wily's plans, he shoots him in the forehead, only for the head to start bouncing on a spring, revealing it be a robot fake. The real Wily observed the event from his Wily Capsule, shocked at how Mega Man would shoot a human.
Happens frequently in My Hero Academia thanks to the villain Twice, who can create temporary copies of himself or others that melt into gray goop when "killed." The opening scene of Heroes: Rising appears to have several heroes in a car chase with the League of Villains, but when Endeavor incinerates the bad guys, they all turn out to be just copies.
Done in one occasion in Naruto when the good guys struggle against two very powerful villains and finally defeat them, only to find out they merely defeated inferior copies made out of animated corpses. From exchanges made beforehand, it then becomes clear that the copies only had 30% of their chakra to work with. There was a partial example later: When Kisame fought Killer Bee, the real him was there for most of the fight but was switched with a much weaker duplicate by the end. Granted, there's a very good chance that Killer Bee and the Raikage really could have beaten the real him together. The switch was made to save his life, not to fake his death.
My Monster Secret: Perverts have the ability to control wind and steam in order to make themselves sexier by giving tantalizing glimpses of their naked bodies. The most powerful, like the Charismatic Pervert, can create life-like doubles out of steam, which Shiho only discovers after she seemingly defeats her mother in a pervert contest. Asahi is the only one who finds any of this odd.Asahi: What even are perverts, anyway?
One Piece: During the Dressrosa arc, we learn about Doflamingo'ss Black Knight technique: he can make string marionettes indistinguishable from humans, resembling either himself or anyone that he wants. We find this out the hard way when Usopp breaks Doflamingo's spell over the city, and Kyros manages to actually decapitate Doflamingo in a single stroke. Shortly afterward, the real one appears behind Kyros to attack him.
Outlaw Star does this in Episode 9 when Gene is attempting to collect a bounty on the criminal Zomba. Gene wins the fight and is surprised that the guy's a cyborg and takes him in only to find out the real Zomba wasn't a cyborg. Subverted immediately after when Suzuka walks out of the police station and as she's walking away some people come running up and announce that she's the one who took down the legendary Zomba (completely offscreen).
In Psycho-Pass, Chief Kasei had an array of cyborg body doubles as it was first revealed at the end of Episode 16. Whenever it gets damaged or destroyed, there would always be another one. But the brain residing that body does not. In the movie, it turns out that the SEAUn chairman is a body double because the real one was assassinated by mercenaries hired by the Sibyl system themselves.
Time Stop Brave: Bahamut blows up the King of Darkness with a fireball. Just as the heroes start celebrating, his voice echoes and reveals they only destroyed an avatar and he was in another country the whole time.
Live-Action TV In the finale to the fourth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Simmons is seemingly killed, only to be revealed as an LMD.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel: Used with the Buffybot, a robot replica of the title heroine. A good example is "The Gift", where Buffy apparently gets decapitated by the Big Bad, Glory. Lo and behold, the real Buffy then reveals herself, showing the first one to be a fake.
Season 9 opens with Buffy's arms feeling funny. Later in the series we see a shot of Andrew working on a robotic arm, then in a fight Buffy's arm is torn off to her horror. When it turns out that it's a robotic arm, remembering how upset she was when there was a robot version of her before, Buffy\robobuffy gets even more upset. Becomes Comically Missing the Point when she finds out she's a robot after her arm is ripped off and goes to confront Andrew about it. Instead of explaining why she's a robot he seems to be only concerned about getting her a new arm. Later when Buffy and Spike are angry at him because what she's been through because of it, he still thinks they're referring to her having lost the arm.
In Season 6 of Buffy the Scoobies use the Buffybot to make the underworld think that the Slayer is still protecting Sunnydale. When a vampire accidentally discovers this, it provokes immediate Rape, Pillage, and Burn by demon bikers.
The first time Willow gets her mitts on Warren in "Villains". Fizz crackle pop.
An instance of this appears on the Angel episode "Lineage". A cyborg uses a Glamour to imitate Wesley's father. When the cyborg threatens Fred, Wesley shoots it dead, revealing its true nature. Unlike most cases of this trope, the duplicate was not operating on behalf of the original.
In Episode 8 of Dark Matter (2015), Six (with the help of Expendable Clone service advertised four episodes prior) finally meets face-to-face with his treacherous former employer, The General. Turns out The General used the same trick to command his underlings in person.
Doctor Who: An interesting variant occurs in "A Good Man Goes to War" when it is revealed that the baby Melody Pond the Doctor and his allies have just rescued is a Ganger. Ultimately, this trope is the driving force behind the entirety of new Season 6, as the over-arcing plot concerns the Doctor dying at River's hand being a fixed point in time. Fortunately, at the half-season mark they meet a group of people who specialize in robots that can imitate people...
Farscape: Unbeknown to the audience, Aeryn Sun is swapped with a biomechnical replica to hide the real one's abduction. John Crichton doesn't awaken to the situation until the "bioloid" inadvertently fails at a Trust Password. Crichton draws a gun on her and, during an increasingly-agitated round of questioning, the faker tries to draw hers as well. Crichton blasts the side of her head off, revealing her inner components for all to see.
In the first episode of the 4th season of The Flash, Clifford De Voe/The Thinker uses an android warrior, Samuroid, to lure Team Flash into pulling Barry out of the Speed Force. The robot also provides a neat way to cover the tracks. De Voe utilizes the Samuroid a few more times in the season, mainly as a means of distraction.
On Gilligan's Island, when Gilligan dreamed he was a spy, he was shot by Mr. Howell (the Big Bad of the dream, playing an Expy of Blofeld), and was revealed to be a robot. Then the "real" Gilligan walked in, saying he suspected something was amiss and so, sent his robot double in first.
The Mentalist: Protagonist Patrick Jane tracks down and kills his almost-lifelong nemesis, serial superkiller "Red John", season ends. The next season begins, and, hey, what do you know: that guy Jane shot? He was actually just a boring minion of Red John's.
Smallville: Lana Lang is caught in a car bombing, with enough DNA evidence to confirm the death, in Season 6 finale. In the next season, it is revealed that it was actually her clone created by Lex.
Stargate SG-1: System Lord Ba'al inherited Asgard Cloning Technology from his old master, Anubis. This let the writers kill him at least once almost every time he appeared after that. One episode revolved around SG-1 tracking down the lot of them. Or did they? Turns out, they didn't. Either that, or he just made more clones afterward. Also on Stargate SG-1, in the Season 4 episode Double Jeopardy, SG-1 finds out that their robot clones from Season 1's Tin Man have been going on their own adventures. The second indication that SG-1 isn't really SG-1 is when Carter was surprised to be referred to as a Major rather than a Captain.
In the Star Trek: Discovery short "Escape Artist", Harry Mudd ends up in the hands of a Tellarite bounty hunter, who plans to turn him over to a Federation ship for a reward. Mudd spends most of the video unsuccessfully trying to trick the Tellarite, but the bounty hunter is far too clever for that. He transports with Mudd to a Starfleet ship, only for the captain to take them to a room, where they're holding half a dozen other Mudds. Apparently, someone's been selling android copies of Mudd to bounty hunters for half the reward money. The culprit turns out to be the real Mudd, who's making a fortune on the scam. The androids he's selling are completely unaware that they're not the real deal.
Don Armage, the Big Bad of Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger is killed several times with no effect. Tsurugi claims that he killed Don Armage in the past and is confused when he hears that Don Armage is still the leader of Jark Matter in the present. To solve the mystery of how he is still alive The Kyurangers travel back in time and kill him again in the past but find that the present hasn't changed when they return. They later kill him again in the present and guess that he must have the ability to make copies of himself. It turns out that he not only can make copies of himself, but can also revive himself by possessing other people's bodies if his real body is destroyed. The version that Tsurugi killed actually was the real Don Armage but he revived himself by possessing Quervo, and the others the Kyurangers fought were copies. In the present, the real Don Armage in Quervo's body is at Jark Matter's base in the Crux system.
