Roy was a clone of Marth. Smash 4 Roy is decidedly different, in the same way that Luigi is no longer just a clone of Mario.

Spoiler.
the fact that roy has an echo fighter makes him feel more legitimate somehow. like it moves him out of marth's shadow a little bit to be considered a character unique enough to base another character on (if that makes sense).

The series can do a lot better than characters that technically also have other weapons or that were formerly clones of other characters, though. It isn't the biggest deal in the world, but it's disappointing that a series that's previously been willing to take characters that huge parts of their audience would never have heard of before is playing it so safe with what's now one of Nintendo's most popular franchises.

Though I'd level the same complaint about Zelda - that series can do a lot better than three Links.

I wonder if the Belmonts' whips can grab swords....

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I vote for Mòrag for Smash 4. She uses Brighid, Aegeon, and Finch in a stance system.

Final smash: She simply says "Get 'em, boys!" and a bunch of Mor Ardainian soldiers yelling "THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME?" "DON'T FERGET ME!" and "You're done!" over each other flood the stage.

Is he actually Roy's Echo though? From what I saw it looked like he had moves from multiple FE characters (Roy/Marth's Dancing Blade, Ike's Aether, etc).

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
