Line 1: Line 1:
''[[Super Smash Bros. Melee]]'' used the X and Y buttons on the Gamecube controller to change costumes. Also, the number of costumes was increased to six.
+
''[[Super Smash Bros. Melee]]'' added additional [[Color Changing|alternate costume]] options to characters by using the X and Y buttons to cycle through the available list instead of using four C buttons to pick a specific color; this removes the limit as to how many are selectable, so there are no longer any costumes exclusive to Team Battles or computer opponents. As a result, many characters now have five different color schemes, with some having as many as six, though some still only have four.
   
===[[Bowser (SSBM)|Bowser]]===
+
In [[Team battle|Team Melee]], if members of the same team use the same character, the second player would have a lighter tint applied to their character. A third player uses a darker tint. If a fourth player is forcibly added to a team with the [[Name Entry glitch]], then the fourth character will be completely black; the game's data suggests that a fifth player, if possible, would be completely grey. A sixth player and afterword, would crash the game.

*'''Green''' (default)
 
*'''Red:''' Seems to be primarily based on Bowser's 2P colors in ''Mario Golf''. Also resembles a [[Spiny]] or red [[Koopa Troopa]]. Red Koopas are the second most common type of Koopa Troopa. On the character select, he has red eyes. In game, the eyes are blue.
 
*'''Blue:''' May be a loose reference to artwork from ''Super Mario Bros. 3'', which depicted Bowser with silver horns, orange hair and a blue cape. Has some similarities to Iggy Koopa's in-game appearances in ''Super Mario Bros. 3'' and ''Super Mario World''. The shell may also be a reference to the Blue Spiny Shell from ''Mario Kart 64''.
 
*'''Black''' May be based on Morton Koopa Jr.

Latest revision as of 14:01, November 11, 2019

Super Smash Bros. Melee added additional alternate costume options to characters by using the X and Y buttons to cycle through the available list instead of using four C buttons to pick a specific color; this removes the limit as to how many are selectable, so there are no longer any costumes exclusive to Team Battles or computer opponents. As a result, many characters now have five different color schemes, with some having as many as six, though some still only have four.

In Team Melee, if members of the same team use the same character, the second player would have a lighter tint applied to their character. A third player uses a darker tint. If a fourth player is forcibly added to a team with the Name Entry glitch, then the fourth character will be completely black; the game's data suggests that a fifth player, if possible, would be completely grey. A sixth player and afterword, would crash the game.

MarioColorsMelee

Mario's alternate costumes in SSBM

Red R Based on his appearance from the Nintendo 64 era and Super Mario 64.
Yellow Y Based on Wario, the same as his yellow costume in the previous game. Unlike the original (and every other iteration in the series), the colored "M" is blue instead of yellow and the buttons are white instead of yellow, as to make him more closely resemble Wario. Additionally, Mario's hat gains a white accent on its edge.
Black B A reference to Foreman Spike from Wrecking Crew '98. Updated from the original version of this swap to be closer to black and white than brown and yellow. It is the only costume where the hat and overalls are changed to be the same color.
Blue B A reversal of his traditional colors. This is seen as a partial reference to Mario's varying appearances in games prior to Nintendo's official establishment of Mario's outfit consisting of a red shirt, blue overalls, and red hat. In various earlier games, Mario occasionally also appeared with a blue hat, red shirt with blue overalls, or a red hat with a blue shirt with red overalls. Interestingly, though, Mario never appeared in any game with the particular combination of a blue hat, blue shirt, with red overalls as it appears here, but this color scheme does resemble the Balloon Fighter and it also resembles Mario's outfit from the three DIC cartoons.
Green G Complimentary colors of his normal outfit. Resembles Mario's appearance on Japanese and European box arts for Wrecking Crew.
