I would say this is a replicator
`x = 6, y = 3, rule = B2i3-r4ceit5ce6-c7e8/S2-a3-cj4cet5cei6-i78bo2bo\$6o\$bo2bo!`

or breeder?
`x = 10, y = 5, rule = B3ai4e5cei678/S2-ai34cet5ci6782bo5b2o\$b3o4b2o\$5o2b3o\$b3o4b2o\$2bo5b2o!`

I'd go more with "breeder" than "replicator" for both of those, yes.

I feel like people may have forgotten about this rule, with one of the weirdest replicators in Life-like CA:
`x = 78, y = 3, rule = B36/S2456o7b6o38b6o9b6o\$o4bo7bo4bo38bo4bo9bo4bo\$b4o9b4o40b4o11b4o!`

Note that single half-replicator breaks, but a pair works the same at separation 7 and 9. They can even be offset in the other direction:
`x = 12, y = 17, rule = B36/S2459b2o\$9bobo\$9bobo\$9bobo\$9bobo\$9b2o6\$2o\$obo\$obo\$obo\$obo\$2o!`

Or with a time offset:
`x = 17, y = 7, rule = B36/S245b2o\$b2o\$o2bo8b4o\$4o9b2o\$11b6o\$13b2o\$13b2o!`

That's not a 2d replicator though...

Okay, technically you're correct, but aren't linear replicators a subset of 2D replicators anyway? I think the regular ones like HighLife's replicator could even be considered their own class. Anyway, I thought this was a nice replicator whose unusual, difficult-to-classify behaviour might be of interest to this thread.

Dirty. Creates a chaotic mess, but still expands at the edges using replication.

There are a few "Q-like" replicator classes that exist:

Q90edge,90diag:

`x = 1, y = 1, rule = B1c/So!`

`x = 1, y = 1, rule = B1e/So!`

Q90edge,150diag:

`x = 1, y = 1, rule = B1c/S04co!`

`x = 1, y = 1, rule = B1e/S04eo!`

Q150edge,90diag:

`x = 1, y = 1, rule = B13ci/So!`

Q150edge,150diag:

`x = 1, y = 1, rule = B13i/S08o!`

This one has an oddball diag value:

`x = 1, y = 1, rule = B13i/So!`

as does this:
` x = 1, y = 1, rule = B13ai/S0o!`

Looks like rule 22:
`x = 1, y = 1, rule = B13ci/S0o!`

Also, is there really any difference between class-S and class-Q9090 replicators? Skipping the right amount of generations on a class-S causes it to replicate exactly like a class-Q9090, so is there any need for a distinction?

It's failed, but it fails gracefully.
It doesn't leave behind chaos, only blocks.
As it does so, it creates a beautiful fractal pattern.
To understand sone more, you should see for yourself.
`x = 3, y = 3, rule = B2e3eijky4acen5ijnqy6cn/S1c2ckn3acj4acejrz5ejy6i7e8bo\$obo\$bo!`

It was isolated from the ash of this very-ungracefully-failed 1D replicator.

Here's another replicator found in that ash. It also leaves behind a fractal pattern, but made of tiny oscillators.

A clean 1D replicator.

The first example class D suggests it's supposed to be a sort of "class F but messier".

I'd suggest class A is failed replicators that eventually become some sort of finite or linear-growth pattern, class D is failed repliators that expand infinitely with chaos penetrating near the center of the pattern for all time, and class F is class D but with the region of stability near the center expanding over time.

So wwei's first replicator on this page is class F and his second one is class D.

I'd consider that a class U. It's not as messy as the class D examples, as the interior has a clear structure - the replicators and blocks actually seem to be simulating another cellular automaton!

### Re: 2D Replicator Classes

I made a p40 glider gun in the above rule (EDIT: smaller):
`x = 18, y = 31, rule = B3aijnq7c/S23-ckq6bob2o\$6b2obo2\$2o\$bo\$o\$2o14b2o\$16bo\$17bo\$16b2o\$6b3o\$6bobo\$6b2o6\$14bo\$2b3o8bobo\$4bo9bo\$4bo8\$8bob2o\$8b2obo!`

It's fun to enclose a replicator in snakes and watch it evolve and it reminds me of extinction turmites:
`x = 74, y = 54, rule = B3aijnq7c/S23-ckq52b2o\$52bo\$53bo\$52b2o13\$36b2o\$36bo\$37bo\$36b2o\$70b2obo\$70bob2o3\$4b2o6b2o6b2o6b2o36bob2o\$4bo7bo7bo7bo37b2obo\$5bo7bo7bo7bo\$4b2o6b2o6b2o6b2o6\$19bo\$19bo\$17b3o\$62b2obo\$62bob2o5\$2o6b2o6b2o6b2o6b2o6b2o\$bo7bo7bo7bo7bo7bo\$o7bo7bo7bo7bo7bo21b2obo\$2o6b2o6b2o6b2o6b2o6b2o20bob2o5\$48b2o\$49bo\$48bo\$48b2o!`

I also found a turner for a pair of replicator signals (separated by 40 generations), but I lost it.

But that's a digression from the topic of collecting miscellaneous (wow, I typed that word right!) replicators. To reconcile that, here is a funky class-R replicator which is also a failed replicator (see generations 12,13, 24, and 25):
`x = 4, y = 2, rule = B2ce3aky4acer5jknry6-ac7c8/S2-cn3-cinq4ceikr5-anry6-ckob2o\$4o!`

(It is funky because the copies are not in sync with each other and if you zoom out and simulate it then you can see cool patterns right as everything starts to die)
I don't think it's even a sawtooth.
