why call it Pallete Swap? Its official name is color changes... JtM =^] (talk) 08:14, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Not according to Wikipedia ರ_ರ Koopa Klaus Happy Holidays 08:15, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Lucario Pallette Swap[edit]

Lucario only has five colorations, and lacks its shiny color. Note that Lucario's white coloration is similar to Giygas's appearance in Mother. :says, the article. What has Lucario got to do with Gigyas? I don't get it. Also, isn't Gigyas like his EarthBound appearance in Mother then (I've never played Mother so I didn't know how different he looks.)? But still, there's no connection at all. -- JacktonTALK 19:57, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

It should prolly be removed. Blue Ninjakoopa Happy Holidays 21:25, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
Hmm... I've read that since Mother games were made by some of the same people as the Pokemon games, there's some similarities between Giygas and Mewtwo as well as Lucario. I'd like to see images to compare to verify this. Miles (talk) 22:54, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

BTW, if you invert Lucario red colors, appears shiny.

No, he doesn't. Lucario's "shiny" colour scheme is effectively an invert of his default palette swap, not his red palette swap. PenguinofDeath 15:01, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

No TOCRIGHT plz[edit]


As you can see, the TOC goes behind the images.Smoreking(T) (c) 20:34, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Well, i don't like what it is nau, cos TOCRIGHT looks a lot better, and you can go straight to the article without having to scroll down... ~Teh Blue Blur~~You're too slow!~ 20:37, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

nau? Or you could click Bowser in TOC. People may be looking for a specific character, but can't due to it being blocked by the TOC.Smoreking(T) (c) 20:39, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
On my comp it looks fine. Look. I'm just gonna upload the pics. ~Teh Blue Blur~~You're too slow!~ 20:44, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Fail[3] ~Teh Blue Blur~~You're too slow!~ 20:57, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

obvious reference is obvious[edit]

Meta Knight's white costume resembling Galacta Knight is more valid than his blue looking like Dark Meta Knight and far more tangible than the comment on his pink costume resembling Kirby.

Galacta Knight didn't exist at the time Brawl was made. Dark Meta Knight did. Dazuro (talk) 20:12, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Many, many links for me deleted stuff[edit]

Lucario [4] And a quote from a friend: "Another thought: Lucario refs Toxicroak with his purple-and-red scheme. Think about it: Toxicroak is a very blued-out violet, as is that Lucario. Toxicroak has a red spot on him, his throat bulge. The chest region of Lucario is also red. The border color on both is black. The chosen colors are very close to each other. Further similarities, both are in the same egg group and share a type, Humanshape and Fighting."

Peach [5] [6] [7]

Diddy: [8] Seriously, look at it. I am not saying it IS the basis for Green Diddy, merely a possibility.

Wario: These are obvious. The pink and blue overalls are his WarioWare color scheme, and the yellow and purple biker suit is his normal color scheme. I probably worded that badly.

Meta Knight: Dark Meta Knight is clear to me and many other people.

Marx isn't however. Marx Meta has the pink color Marx had, along with a rainbow cape/wings to emulate Marx's wings. In addition, he is the only costume that gets special cape color, instead of being solid.

Pokemon Trainer: Compare their hats: [9] [10]

That should cover all of mine that were removed, plus one more. Cheers! 05:09, 17 June 2009 (UTC) ETA: I didn't know that the pictures would show up instead of being links. If need be, I can edit them to links.

I made them links. Your edits to this page are the only edits you've ever made to SmashWiki, but, based on what you've said, I presume that you are The Qu. In future, please quote what you added to the page, and use the names of colour schemes as they are given on the palette swap page so that I can tell what you're referring to. Your points in order:
  1. No - Toxicroak is blue with a red throat pouch and red fingers, while Lucario's red palette swap makes him purple with a red torso.
  2. Yes - Peach's blue and green palette swaps make her look like Peach and Daisy from Mario Golf respectively.
  3. Yes - The colours used are either the same or only slightly different (probably due to the fact that Diddy Kong Racing came out long before Brawl so the graphics wouldn't be as good) but I'm not sure about the stars
  4. That wasn't worded very well - in his blue overalls look, his overalls are the same colour as his jacket in his default biker look, and his shirt is the same colour as his trousers in his default biker look. Wario's WarioWare colour scheme is his default biker colour scheme in Brawl. I haven't addressed all the points in that sentence as I didn't really understand what you were getting at.
  5. No - Dark Meta Knight has a silver sword, face, shoulder pads and gloves, he has yellow eyes, and he has a dark, ragged cape. Meta Knight's blue palette swap in Brawl has a gold sword, a dark face, shoulder pads and gloves, he has red eyes, and his cape isn't ragged. The only similarity is that their bodies are both dark, but you'd expect that of "Dark" Meta Knight and "blue" Meta Knight.
  6. No - They look completely different. Marx's wings didn't have a rainbow pattern, they had patches of bright colours on them. Also, Marx was very faintly pink, whereas Meta Knight's pink palette swap is bright pink. If it is a reference, it's a very subtle one.
If you could reword the Wario line, I'll tell you what I think of it. Some good suggestions, keep 'em coming. PenguinofDeath 07:21, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
Silly me, I missed your last point. The hats are the same, but that's already in the article ("Red: His hat resembles the one of Leaf, the female trainer in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen"). I think that's everything now. Except the Wario line. PenguinofDeath 07:26, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Palette swap's copyright[edit]

Hello, I wanna know if we could take -for our siteweb- Palettes swap without matter. It's possible?

A few things...[edit]

Okay. First, Bowser's blue color change is not the same as Iggy's colors. It only has similar head and shell colors to Iggy's earlier sprites. Second, his white pallette doesn't change his hair. Third, the Ice Climbers' red pallette is basically Popo and Nana swapped. Fourth, pink King Dedede is also in Kirby 64's multiplayer, if two or more people choose Dedede. Fifth, the Devil's Machine has Ness wearing a blue-billed, purple cap, not a purple-billed, blue cap. Sixth, yellow R.O.B. has a coloring similar to that of StarFox's ROB64. Seventh, Wolf's black pallette gives him clothes similar to the clothes worn by Leon Powalski. Eighth, LoZ:ALttP official artwork shows Zelda with a pink and white dress. I would edit the page, but every picture on an article I edit here gets deleted, unless I just edit a section of the article, in which case, every picture in the section. IT GETS ANNOYING! Sonic64 (talk) 22:10, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

So you're saying that something causes all images to be removed when you edit a page or section? Do the images appear when you hit "Show preview", or does the image syntax vanish as soon as you see the edit screen for the first time? Toomai Glittershine Toomai.png The Stats Guy cntrbs 13:02, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
It seems that you're not the only one having this problem; two IPs have edited recently, and the images in those sections vanished. There must be something wrong somewhere. All I can say is, make sure the image is there when you press "Save page". If it still disappears then, we have a severe problem. Toomai Glittershine Toomai.png The Stats Guy cntrbs 17:50, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
I can't press "Save page!" That'll make the pictures disappear! Sonic64 (talk) 22:10, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
I think I may have figred out the problem, but I can't be sure. I'll check. Sonic64 (talk) 23:57, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

I have a theory that I hope is wrong. Could it have something to do with images being linked by means of [[Image:]] as opposed to [[File:]]? Miles (talk) 00:54, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Both of our theories are wrong. Sonic64 (talk) 01:16, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Then it is... what exactly? Miles (talk) 01:29, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
I have no clue. Sonic64 (talk) 01:37, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

...Can someone make the edits? --Sonic64 (talk) 23:22, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

These are the changes needed I currently know of: BOWSER: Black: It might be a dark costume. Red: It resembles Wendy O. Koopa's early sprites. Blue: It also resembles Iggy Koopa. (should be "It also resembles Iggy Koopa's early sprites, especially Super Mario All-Stars.") DIDDY KONG: Green was in DK64's Monkey Smash, as well as blue and yellow. DONKEY KONG: Blue: One of the alternate colours in Donkey Kong 64. (His blue pallette in DK64 gave him black fur and a blue tie, while his purple pallette gave him orange fur and a purple tie) Green: One of the alternate colours in Donkey Kong 64. (Donkey Kong was the only playable character in Donkey Kong 64 without a green color in multiplayer) FALCO: Red: It was also his pallette in StarFox Assault outside of multiplayer KING DEDEDE: Pink: It was in Kirby 64 multiplayer LUCARIO: White: It vaguely resembles the Melee character he replaced, Mewtwo. NESS: Blue: Contrary to popular belief, Ness's face in the Devil's Machine was wearing a reddish hat with a bluish bill ROB: Yellow: It looks like StarFox's ROB64 in color. WOLF: Black: It looks like a dark costume, but it may be a reference to Leon Powalski, who wears similar clothes.

Sonic64 (talk) 19:04, October 24, 2009 (UTC)


I may be wrong, but doesn't Meta Knight's costume with red eyes look like Dark Meta Knight? i know it is kinda obvious, but i couldn't edit the page for some reason, and i was never blocked.--Shade Link (talk) 16:27, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Before posting new comments, please read the whole Talk page to see if the issue has already been discussed. As it happens, this has already been discussed. This was the response:
"No - Dark Meta Knight has a silver sword, face, shoulder pads and gloves, he has yellow eyes, and he has a dark, ragged cape. Meta Knight's blue palette swap in Brawl has a gold sword, a dark face, shoulder pads and gloves, he has red eyes, and his cape isn't ragged. The only similarity is that their bodies are both dark, but you'd expect that of "Dark" Meta Knight and "blue" Meta Knight."
I hope that answers your question. PenguinofDeath 17:15, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

What the?[edit]

Well, my page is created, but i can't edit anything! I was never blocked though. What is going on? --Shade Link (talk) 16:28, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

What can you not edit? If you are referring to the fact that you cannot edit Palette Swap (SSBB), that is because it has been protected so only administrators can edit it. This is stated at the top of the page when you try to edit it:

Fake Picture[edit]

Hey, if you click pictures, and go to either the 4th, or 5th page after typing in "Link", there is this guy wearing a green shirt who has nothing to do with link. Is that supposed to be there?--Shade Link (talk) 18:55, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

This page is really not the place for such discussions. Instead, start a new section on my talk page, an administrator's talk page, or, preferably, the talk page of the image itself. If you do start a new section on a user's talk page, please either name the image, or embed it using the [[image name|thumb]] notation where "image name" is the exact name of the image in question. PenguinofDeath 19:12, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Link black costume[edit]

Link's black costume text should be rewritten. It should have this text intead:

Based off Dark Link who originated from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and appeared again in Ocarina of Time. His appearance is derived from Dark Link's cameo appearance in Twilight Princess. He also gains the negative version of his shield, symbolizing his negativity/darkness. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mr Alex (talkcontribs) 06:21, 4 August 2009

Props, BNK.[edit]

Good job here. It even got featured! But why is the article protected? Paper Bowser (talk) 02:08, November 25, 2009 (UTC)

Because people were constantly adding incorrect sources for outfits, such as one IP who incessantly claimed that Blue Toon Link was based on Geno. Miles (talk) 02:35, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
Oh. Paper Bowser (talk) 19:12, November 25, 2009 (UTC)

Dark Meta Knight[edit]

I know the pallete swap doesn't look much like Dark MK, but the first thing I think about when I see it is him. It's not really supposed to be him, but it might be a reference. 19:57, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

"I know the pallete swap doesn't look much like Dark MK..." -- This is correct. Therefore it isn't a reference. Miles (talk) 03:43, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
However, Bowser's pallette swap doesn't look at all like his son, but it's worth mentioning. Also, I have Kirby and the Amazing mirror, and I recently checked: Dark Meta is a shadowy version of Meta. Meta's blue palette swap is darker and has red eyes. It's the only thing I could compare him to. 18:02, December 26, 2009 (UTC)
Not every outfit is a reference, obviously. So there's no need to try and find one for every outfit.
And which Bowser outfit are you referring to? Miles (talk) 22:27, December 26, 2009 (UTC)

Lucas' Pajamas[edit]

Lucas' blue costume resembles his blue-and-white striped pajamas. --Pokeflora (talk) 01:52, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Pics plz Miles (talk) 02:31, December 12, 2009 (UTC)


All right he got the headgears of several Pokémon Trainers, I give you that... but there is an interesting resemblance of the 3 Main-Game-Companies ...

  • Red = Mario's Hat?
  • Green = Snake's Bandana?
  • Blue = Sonic's Eyes?

Think about it, is it really an coincidence, compared to the Melee costumes where he had different? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 11:05, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

How on earth does Blue Pikachu have Sonic's eyes? Miles (talk) 17:33, December 26, 2009 (UTC)
He means Pikachu's goggles resemble Sonic's eyes. And it's probably not coincidence, as in Melee he had the same red costume, but a different blue and green one. It's worth being put into the article. 17:57, December 26, 2009 (UTC)
Your line "is it really an [sic] coincidence" presumes that your assumptions that the palette swaps made Pikachu resemble other characters were correct.
  • Pikachu's red hat looks nothing like any of Mario's hats, or the hat of any other character in the game - the fact that they're both hats isn't enough to merit a mention in the article.
  • Pikachu's green bandana looks nothing like any of Snake's bandanas - same as the above but with the word "hats" replaced with the word "bandanas".
  • Pikachu's goggles look nothing like Sonic's eyes - same as the above but with the word "bandanas" replaced with the word... "blue"? I don't see any connection at all on this one...
PenguinofDeath 20:01, December 26, 2009 (UTC)
Okay maybe the word "resemblance" was a little bit far fetched and thinking of the Melee palette swaps that got replaced in Brawl... maybe that's because that old-men's green hat and that SSB blue "party-hat" were too random, so they gave pikachu something with more connection to the Pokemon Series (Pichu's/Swimmer's goggles and Brendan's headband).
Main idea of my statement was...
  • Mario has a red hat, Pikachu too.
  • Snake has a Bandana right above his eyes, Pikachu too.
  • Sonic has big white spaces in his face... his eyes, Pikachu too... kinda...
—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 10:44, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
Peach and Zelda both wear dresses, obviously they're references to each other. Or maybe Peach/Zelda/Samus are all female- obviously this is an allusion! Shadowcrest 16:04, December 27, 2009 (UTC)
They look quite alike in my opinion. Palette swaps arn't ment to be perfect refrences. And unlike the peach/zelda thing, the resemblences are the same color. the goggles look startlingly like sonic's eyes. The bandana looks very much like snake's. And mario's hat looks somewhat like the red hat. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 20:42, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
The palette swaps are supposed to be:
  • Red = Red's hat
  • Green = Brendan's emerald bandana
  • Blue = Pichu's melee goggles
I really don't see any of the resemblances you mentioned. Cheezperson {talk}stuff 20:47, December 27, 2009 (UTC)
Because you don't want to XD —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 18:02, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
I really hope you were being sarcastic there. Cheezperson {talk}stuff 19:08, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
What!! Blue costume supposed to be Pichu?! What!! That's an even more obscure refrence than the one being suggested. 20:38, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
How is that obscure? It was one of his costumes in Brawl. Where else would they be from? - Gargomon251 (talk) 21:04, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
Wow chill he was just pointing something out. No need to ridicule him.Highwaypumpy (talk) 20:37, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm I should be careful with releasing my opinion here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 14:00, 18 January 2010 (UTC)


Is this page locked? I can not seem to edit it. Daisy09 (talk) 14:56, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes. It is protected. I don't really see why though. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 16:48, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
I requested that it be protected because people kept adding incorrect facts, and edit warring was liable to occur. If you believe that the article warrants any kind of alteration, please use this talk page to describe in full the edit you would like to be made, and either myself or one of the other Administrators will decide whether or not the edit should be made, then act appropriately. PenguinofDeath 18:08, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

Hm alright then. The Peach section needs changing. It contains speculation as well a spoor description. I believe, by the facts it should be changed to:

Pink (Default) Yellow: Princess Daisy's pallete colors. Red hair, yellow dress, orange/white accents, green/red jewels. Unlike Melee, this is only a direct recolor; her earrings, crown, brooch, sleeves, and collar are not given a new mesh. Red: Red dress, red and purple jewels. Blue: Lavender dress, pink/teal jewels, silver crown. Green: Green dress, red purple green and blue jewels. White: White dress, blue and green jewels, silver crown; no longer includes tights like in Melee.

The description for the yellow dress wasn't very great. If that was a Pauline pallete then she would have dark hair and gold jewels. The dresses Peach and Daisy had in NES Open tournament Golf were not actually these colors. Aside from the main screen in game they were colored correctly. If that was a super mario bros. outfit she would have different hair as well as different second colors.

Lucas: Orange: Twin brother Claus' pallete colors. Red hair, shirt with blue and yellow stripes; the main difference form the actual character being the hair facing the opposite direction.

Luigi: Purple: Waluigi's pallete colors. Purple hat and shirt, dark overalls, orange shoes.

Mario: Yellow: Wario's pallete colors; just as in the previous Smash titles. Yellow hat and shirt, purple overalls,green shoes.

I'd rewrite a lot more but not being able to do this directly is a little annoying. Daisy09 (talk) 20:47, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

We don't need or want a specific description of each aspect of each outfit -- that's why we have pictures. And it's locked because IPs kept adding highly incorrect statements, such as saying that Blue Toon Link was a reference to Geno.
And I realize some of the "references" don't always match up exactly. But if there's some notable comparison that may have been the reason for the color scheme's creation, it merits mention. Miles (talk) 03:47, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

You understand the need to stop incorrect statements but you agree with allowing speculative content with poor basis? Regardless, the costume that are based on characters like I typed here still need to be changed and somebody should think more clearly that if a costume was based on something else in reality it would be as close as the other costumes which are clearly based on other outfits/characters. I thoroughly explained my reasoning for changing Peach's. Daisy09 (talk) 1:29, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Sonic - Yellow[edit]

on the yellow palette, Sonic's shoes remind me in the Sega Master System/Game Gear version of Sonic the Hedgehog (1)... his shoes looked more yellowish instead of red, what they are supposed to be, I guess that's because of technical issues on this early console.


How does her black costume resemble bikini suit samus in any way? 00:24, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

The bikini might have been black.
And... and my article. It's been featured. :') 01:00, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
No, I've played the original Metroid and beaten it; Bikini suit samus is redish. Besides, even if BSS was black it still is as worth mentioning as Blue MK's costume is as a resemblense to DMK from KatAM. 01:40, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
Two words - Super Metroid. But yeah, it doesn't deserve mention. Toomai Glittershine Toomai.png eXemplary Logic 02:54, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
Then can you please remove it. 03:38, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
Done. PenguinofDeath 08:28, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Meta Knight[edit]

Re: the perceived "Dark Meta Knight" costume. This is an official image of Dark Meta Knight.


  • different color eyes
  • different color cape
  • different color sword
  • different color shoes

NEVER mention this again. Miles (talk) 02:53, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Wrong. That's simply official art. The in-game image of DMK looks quite different. 03:40, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
And no, the cape is the same color. 03:41, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
For those wondering, Miles obtained this image from the [w:c:kirby:Kirby Wiki|Kirby Wiki]. Also, I agree, since this has been brought up a few times.
98 - Metadark.jpg (it actually looks the same, with no resemblance to MK's blue costume in Brawl; another note - DMK removes his cape in-game) 03:43, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Small addition[edit]

Even if the blue Meta Knight costume isn't the same as Dark Meta Knight, I have seen that costume used to potray an evil Meta Knight/evil player in several machinimas because of his similar look to Dark Link/Dark Toon Link. Just putting that out there.

SightsX (talk) 19:21, February 25, 2010 (UTC)SightsX

Machinima is hardly an effective source for such things. NO. Miles (talk) 20:55, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Fair enough.

SightsX (talk) 16:18, February 26, 2010 (UTC)SightsX

For Luigi[edit]

I realize the page has been protected so only administrators can edit, so I want to make a suggestion for Luigi's orange outfit:

In Super Mario Bros. 3, the Mario Bros. would don an orange hat, orange shirt, & red overalls. This costume of Luigi's features the orange shirt and cap, but not the red overalls.

This is probably a coincidence, but the Balloon Fighter thing I mentioned about Mario's blue costume is may be coincidental too. --wikia:c:pacman:User:SuperSonicRider|SSRider Wanna Chat? 01:02, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Oh yeah, and this refers to the original SMB3, not the recreations. --wikia:c:pacman:User:SuperSonicRider|SSRider Wanna Chat? 01:04, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

proof plz Miles (talk) 02:00, March 10, 2010 (UTC)
Here ya go. [11] --wikia:c:pacman:User:SuperSonicRider|SSRider Wanna Chat? 10:56, March 10, 2010 (UTC) Also, this refers to the ingame sprite, as the artwork has the traditional white-red mix. --wikia:c:pacman:User:SuperSonicRider|SSRider Wanna Chat? 10:58, March 10, 2010 (UTC)
Based on the differing color of overalls, I doubt that this is a reference. Miles (talk) 22:55, March 10, 2010 (UTC)


"Emerald version of Pokemon Advance" There's no such thing as Pokemon Advance. It's just called Pokemon Emerald Version. Also the female progagnist of FireRed/LeafGrean is named Leaf so that should be noted by Jigglypuff wearing her hat.--Lego3400 (talk) 17:08, March 19, 2010 (UTC)


"Also resembles the Gravity Suit in all Metroid games prior to Super Metroid."

That's a completely nonsensical statement. The Gravity Suit was invented for Super Metroid, and did not exist in any games prior to it. Dazuro (talk) 05:12, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

I think he/she meant "post Super Metroid" and not "prior to Super Metroid." Nick3069 (talk) April 16, 2010

Pink (Red) suit[edit]

That suit is the Gravity Suit from Super Metroid! I own Super Metroid, I've finished the game at least a dozen times and I can tell you that that pink suit is the gravity suit from that game! I went to the Wikitroid and Smash Bros. DOJO, I didn't see anything saying that the pink suit is "based on the appearance of the Varia Suit of the original Metroid when missiles are selected." I'm not saying it's not, but it looks a lot more like the gravity Suit to me. I'm mot colorblind! There is a difference between the Gravity Suit in Super Metroid and the one in Metroid Prime and it's the same difference as the pink suit and the purple suit. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nick3069 (talkcontribs) 00:21, April 17, 2010 (UTC)

Based on these two images from Wikitroid, I can see why you think it's pink - but I say it's purple. The highlights are a magenta colour, and the shading is definitely purple - pink doesn't have the same properties. It's certainly not the same shade of purple as Brawl's version, but it's more purple than pink. (And sign all talk page comments with ~~~~.) Toomai Glittershine Toomai.png eXemplary Logic 00:30, April 17, 2010 (UTC)

Color Classification[edit]

Not to say "it must be done", but shouldn't the colors of the pallete be classified as the colors they're listed as in the game (such as ROB's "purple" pallete being considered the same color as peach's regular). I get this just off of tourney which says, unless im mistaken, that Warios first regular (the wario ware outfit) is light blue. If i'm wrong or you feel that it should stay the same, feel free to just delete this message. --Zordon123456789mlw7 (talk) 04:29, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think there's any official or in-game list of what costumes are named what colours, so I'm not really sure what you're talking about. Toomai Glittershine Toomai.png The Stats Guy 13:29, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon Trainer[edit]

I'd change it, but it's protected. The red color for Ivysaur is based off of its evolution, Venusaur. Squirtle's red color is based off Wartortle, its evolution. ;) So, somebody change it :D ***Super!~Nickno 23:52, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

I have to disagree. While some aspects make sense (Wartortle's shell has a red hue to it, Venusaur's plant is more red than Ivysaur's, etc.), the skin eliminates all resemblance. However, I will ponder this, as Charizard's red skin may be based off of Charmeleon, who, like the other two Pokemon (Venusaur, Wartortle), has something on him (in this case, skin) that gives off more red than its post/pre-evolution.

Your forgetting Squirtle's red skin is purple, just like Wartortle's skin. And Since that's 2 out of 3, Ivysaur's resemblance must have been purposeful. ***Super!~Nickno 21:18, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

light purple or white[edit]

do you agree that link's 4th color in SSB look more like white than light purple? also, how come so many colors are titled "brown" rather than "black"? most look more black than brown if u ask me... Zelda101 02:22, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

The Brawl costume in question is less than white, and the SSB64 one is about the same. The SSBM version does look very white, but it does have some purplish tints, and there's no reason to have changed it between games. So I say light purple, even though it looks white at times. As for brown versus black, which particular ones are you talking about? (By the way, don't sign posts with ~~~~zelda101~~~~. Sign them with ~~~~ only.)

well i mean like samus's black/brown outfit in SSBM. it look more like black than brown. and mario's black/brown costume. Zelda101 03:13, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
I think the purple part is a matter of opinion. Why can't we just call it "purple/white"?highway pumpy sfs 13:31, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
We could call it "lavender", but that's not exactly the most well-known colour word. Calling it "purple/white" implies that there are two colours, not one colour that some people might interpret differently - by calling it "light purple", someone can stare at it and think "oh, I think I can see what it's talking about". As for brown vs. black - yeah, okay, Mario's darkest outfit looks really black in Brawl, but in Melee it's just brown enough to make you wonder, and in SSB64 it's definitely brown. Samus' darkest colour is about the same as Mario's in SSBM, while it looks more brown than black in Brawl and very black in SSB64.

ForemanSpikeSprite.PNG Mario's brown outfit is based on the undoubtedly brown outfit of Foreman Spike in Wrecking Crew '98. (Apparently the Japanese site for the original SSB confirmed this.)

It's unreasonable to claim that Link's outfit created by the Blue Ring would turn him white.

And the brown for Samus is clearly this in Brawl, and though MP2 comes after SSB and SSBM I think the colors are pretty comparable. Miles (talk) 21:46, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

Most people see Link's outfit as white, so why not just call it "light purple/white"? I do agree with you on the topic of brown/black outfits.highway pumpy sfs 22:02, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

Useless debate is useless. You can go back and forth on what shade whoever's outfit <x> is, but honestly you could be doing much more useful and productive things. This topic is always going to be subjective- no reason to continue adding in "I think <X>'s costume is <y>!" and like and such as. Unless Nintendo drops by and says it's a specific color, just leave it as vague as possible and be done with it. Shadowcrest 22:45, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

Lucario in Team Battle[edit]

It might be a minor note, but since Samus has a similar note under her palette swap, this might be valid. In Team Battle, if Lucario is on Blue Team, his color will be his default (Tan) color rather than his Blue color. I don't know, it's up to you guys if this is valid information or not.
