Video Game Enemy Chart

I was thinking today about how many video game characters follow the same dynamics. For the most part, it occurred to me that a lot of the protagonists in games have 2 enemies that follow eerily similar patterns - there's the evil mastermind antagonist, who is to be a threat to society as a whole and is fat and/or has crazy hair, and there's a slightly lesser one who seems to just mess with the protagonist for some reason, even if it's just to prove that they're better. The latter usually looks a lot like the protagonist, but dresses cooler. This is about as common as "evil clone of the protagonist," which is a chart for another day. Full chart is after the jump.
