Seung Hui Cho said that he would "die like Jesus Christ, to inspire generations of the weak and defenseless people." But how many mass shooters has he inspired? I know one of them is Wellington Oliveira who praised Cho, said Cho was his "brother" and he had a motive similar to Cho's.
But are there any other mass shooters besides Wellington who have been inspired by Cho? Considering he presented himself as some sort of martyr for bullying victims, i'd imagine that at least some mass shooters would idolize him.

Elliot Rodger, Chris Harper Mercer, Aaron Ybarra, Steven Kazmierczak, possibly William Atchison (using Cho's name as his alias on several websites, using the same gun, doing similar poses with said gun however it's unknown if he's really inspired by Cho or not).

Elliot Rodger, 

Can we get some confirmation on this? As far as I know Roger acted without inspiration from anyone.

I think William did his attack as a homage to every shooter he knew of (although with particular emphasis on Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold). His obsession with mass murder rivaled that of Lanza's.

I didn't do a lot of Rodger research, but I think his mother was Malaysian so he was half Asian, and his roommates he killed insulted their race. He also hated being half Asian. So I am not sure if he would have liked Seung because of that reason.

Wellington De Olivera/Steven Kazmierczak are to Seung Hui Cho as Matti Saari is to Pekka-Eric Auvinen

How exactly did his obsession "rival" Lanza's? Did he also create a spreadsheet of over 500 mass murderers?

Kind of. On Encyclopedia Dramatica he made a massive list of hundreds of mass murderers, updating it regularly.

Cho's stretched out arms with guns in hand should be mandatory for all future Shooters.

I remember seeing Randy take a similar picture with his shotguns and it just looked goofy due to the way they were held.

Adam took pictures holding guns to his head as well, he was also probably inspired by Cho.

David Sonboly may have been inspired by Cho, becaue the school shooting book he owned does feature Virginia tech (I think)

It also had several other shooters, including Eric and Dylan. I say it's a stretch.

There's a clear inspiration in that David Sonboly was clearly stating that he's avenging his psychological liquidation by Turks and Albanians instead of ranting about Natural Selection or trying to get into afterlife like Eric and Dylan.

Cho was inspired by Eric and Dylan, he didn't rant and rave about Natural Selection or getting a one way ticket to heaven either.

I learned it from I, Olga Hepnarova. Not sure if from the movie or from the Roman Cilek's book. It's a good term because stuff like "bullying" can mean just anything from someone being mildly mean to someone every few weeks or so to vicious psychological abuse conducted every day by like half of a class. They even use "bullying' statistics to mask stuff like sexual abuse nowadays.

Funny thing is that David Sonboly also used a similar term - psychological execution.

Ah I see, I always wondered why you used it so much.
It must be from the book because I do not recall that term being used in the film (The film is one of my tied favourite films so I feel confident in saying that it isn't in there)

IIRC they've cut down her story somewhat - including the court speech, I think, to make place for more sex scenes.
