considering he's just a recolor though...his popularity must come from the deadpool voice clips





My upcoming projects

Captain Falcon vs Bang Shishigami: 4%      Vergil vs Sephiroth: 60%      

Killer Instinct Origins: TJ Combo:10%        Dragonclaw vs Evil Ryu Remake: 10%

Lloyd vs Kratos:13%                Kratos vs Cloud:10%        Ryu Hyabusa custom sprites:1%

I'd say that his popularity stems from the fact you can do whatever the hell you want to do with him. Pretty much every sprite character except Merlow has some kind of role they have to abide by in order for the animation to be taken seriously. For example, Sonic. If there was an animation that showed Sonic flying (not running, I mean literally flying) like a DBZ character, it would be immediately ridiculed and not taken seriously. Merlow's character abides by a do-whatever-the-fuck-you-want role so there's quite a bit you can do with him in an animation before said animation is dismissed for it's ridiculousness. And, yes, Merlow is ridiculous and that's exactly why you can do so much with him. No matter how ridiculous you make him, he's still in character; in fact, the more ridiculous you make him, the more in character he is.

I'd say that is the biggest reason he's so popular.

and i would take an animation with a emerl recolor seriously...??????????????? i think people are allowed to do whatever the hell they want with ANY character, as long as it works, whether it's merlow or anybody else. i mean, just look at lange's "cannon something". you can't say that that's the kinda stuff luigi does regularly. it's not a different character. it's luigi. and it's great.

honestly, i'll agree with sxr. merlow was cool when i first saw it, but now it's just like any other annoying overused meme out there. still not THAT bad, but it's getting boring. people should instead try to make some decent sonic fan characters (however i'm pretty sure very few people would be able to do that)

I mean, I agree that it's getting old, I'm just saying there isn't any real stigma against using him inappropriately because that's exactly what you're supposed to do with him and that is why he's popular.

Lange's portrayal of Luigi and Mario are a bit different because there's supposed to be a twist of their character. You could apply the same sort of twist to any character, but people aren't so good at it (not to say that it's hard, but that people just aren't good at it).
