In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, because of the addition of the 8-Player Smash, each character has total of 8 Palette swaps (except for Little Mac, who has 16). Despite the 3DS not supporting eight player matches, it still features the same alternate colors as the Wii U version.

This time, unlike the previous games, some of the palette swaps are actual costumes (like Wario in Brawl), and some can even change voices too, mostly of their gender, such as Robin and the Wii Fit Trainer. Other characters have colors that completely change them into new characters, such as Olimar and Bowser Jr., complete with Announcer clips. However, none of these costumes change any characteristic regarding gameplay: all moves, hitboxes, and properties remain the same.

Also, unlike the last three games, Team Battles no longer restrict characters to use the respective color scheme of the team (red, blue, green, or yellow), rather being outlined with the team color instead, and in the 3DS version, even if outlines are disabled in the settings, they will still show in Team Battles. This means that the player has complete freedom to pick whichever color he/she wants when playing Team Battles.
