It's not really a look-alike, but Balrog and Misery always remind of Ganju and Kuukaku Shiba, since they're always squabbling.

EDIT: Somehow, Quote reminds me of Bossun more than Ash.

In the video "Cave Story with Lyrics", there was a comparision between Igor and someone called "Snooki", who was wearing some kind of fur.

This is my look-alike post, although I'm not sure if it counts:

I thought the Greek Omega looked really different but I suppose that could be another way to write it. I'm not sure if that was intentional but it looks like it could be. Also, I hope that part about "someone called Snooki" was a joke.

That was lower case. The upper case Omega is more famous, I guess. And I always thought Pixel based Omega(boss) completely on Omega(lowercase greek letter). Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet, and there's a saying called 'from Alpha to Omega' based on this, like 'from A to Z'. Could Omega being the last letter have anything to do with the boss? Or did Pixel just choose a random Greek letter because he thought it sounded nice? I don't know...

And that part about "someone named Snooki" is not a joke. Who is she?

I've never actually seen that lowercase Omega but now that I think about it, with the sand rising around it, Omega also looks like it could be inspired by the uppercase Omega also.

I never realised that Omega's shape was based off the Greek letter. But I thought Zeta was the last letter of the Greek Alphabet?

My 6th grade teacher told me about 7 years ago. I come from the state where teachers are least reliable (Arizona).

Mr.MagicDoors, I'm sorry to be as lazy as to not research myself.

Anyway, here's another I came up with:
Curly reminds me of
The legendary Onihime Demon Princess, Himeko Onizuka!

PLEASE PUT LARGE IMAGES IN SPOILER TAGS - GIRakaCHEEZER

Oh, sorry about that, but the spoiler tag didn't seem to be working properly at the moment. Maybe I was doing something wrong.

This is what I had:

But for some reason, the post preview showed only the text in the spoiler, so I just removed the spoiler completely. But thanks for trying to be helpful, you're a nice person.

I know we were originally intending to stay away from "Reminds me of", but this one was far too relevant and noticeable for me.

Red XIII from Final Fantasy 7 reminded me way too much of King... His attitude when you first meet him, the fact that he doesn't talk much and seems to be seclusive. Later in game however, Red does open up to others and realizes what he wants to do. Not to mention his bad eye. Similar to King's scar... (Out of curiosity, I tried to look up if it was the same eye, but the JP version seems to be on the same side as Red, but the US version seems to be on the opposite)

I've seen a lot of conparisont between Quote and pokemon trainer
You know what's funny? In my Pokémon X game, I have nearly all clothing that could be used to make my trainer character look like Quote. But alas, there's no tank-tops for males in the game and I can't have my character crossdress in the game without cheating or owning the Japanese version (from what I've been hearing).

Ohi I remember this thread
There's this in-dev game called Undertale, it has a character named Toriel that looks kinda mimiga-ish. Makes me think of Sue with the colors and all.

I've already seen a pretty good amount of crossover fanart between this game and CS.
