The main palette swap article had to be split into three different articles, one for each game, due to some users having less advanced ways of connecting to the internet. Koopa Klaus Happy Holidays

Brawl alternates

i know there was E For All and a bunch of videos posted, but can people please include sources for all of the information that's added? FyreNWater - (TalkContributions ) 16:49, October 27, 2007 (EDT)

Does Fox really have a Wolf costume, is that true information? Gimpyfish denied this on a thread before.

Can anyone prove that claime?

Other Alternatives

I've added a few ones to the page, but there are some more. However, I'm not going to add them because I'm not sure if they're real or not: Mario's Green costume supposedly comes from Wrecking Crew Luigi's Red costume supposedly comes from Wrecking Crew Captain Falcon's Grey costume supposedly comes from F-Zero X Expansion Pack Ness' Blue costume is supposedly his reflection in Gigyas Mr. Game & Watch's Red, Blue and Green costumes are supposedly from a few copies of Game & Watch handhelds that used these and other colors as opposed to the monotonous black. These need to be looked into. Giga Bowser NS 01:42, November 14, 2007 (EST)

Also, Luigi's white costume (the goveless one with green overalls) I'm pretty sure is based on his appearance in Super Mario Bros. The Inker 15:56, February 7, 2008 (EST)

Yeah, but that's also modern day Fire Luigi. Perhaps you should just make a note of the costumes that aren't standard (that aren't Red, Green Blue) --Phred 16:22, February 7, 2008 (EST)
It would be modern day fire Luigi, but his skin is darker and his gloves are his skin colour (like he has no gloves). The Inker 20:09, February 22, 2008 (EST)
I think it IS the modern Fire Luigi. In the GBA version of Super Mario World when Mario and Luigi transformed into Fire Mario or Fire Luigi their skin also got darker. And wasn't Luigi's normal outfit in Super Mario Bros. a green cap, a brown shirt and green overalls? Because if the Smash Bros.'s white outfit (green overalls, white cap and white shirt) was his normal outfit, then how were the colors of Fire Luigi in Super Mario Bros.? I'd appreciate if someone could explain this to me. Xeze (talk) 21:44, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Nevermind. But the old-style Luigi had a white cap and white overalls. In this costume, Luigi's overalls are green, so it is the modern Fire Luigi. Xeze (talk) 19:01, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Ice Climbers

I believe the Climbers DO switch positions for costumes. In this video, the second match shows them in their black and white costume, and the CPU arrow indicates the black one is the leader: Who is clearly shown to be Nana at the victory screen. --Spoonorca 22:11, February 25, 2008 (EST)

Ike Costume: Domon Kasshu?

I kid you not, one of Ike's alternate costumes bears DISTINCT resemblance to Domon Kasshu of G Gundam fame. Take a look.

You have to admit that the resemblance is too strong to be just coincidence. You think it's worth a mention in the article? Cyberlink420 06:08, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Added Costumes

I've added Foreman Spike, WC Luigi, F-Zero X Expansion Falcon, and Mario Bros. Luigi. If you go to this page and Google translate it, it confirms Spike under his Japanese name Blacky. F-Zero X Falcon may be confirmed, but at the least it says something about the Ash colored costume. I can supply pics to back up the other 2.--The Qu 04:50, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

How do I get Google to translate?

Nintendofan146 22:04, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Never mind... but it doesn't mention Foreman Spike/Blackey anywhere. Nintendofan146 22:12, 20 April 2008 (UTC) Never Mind again...Nintendofan146 21:19, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

I added Dark Super Sonic to Sonic's.Nintendofan146 13:32, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

All Colors?

I think we should include all of the color changes. Who Agrees? Nintendofan146 22:05, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Unless it has any relevance to other games, I really don't think it's necessary. - Gargomon251 23:11, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Well, All "gallery" of costumes is coming, so we might want to...Nintendofan146 (talk) 04:11, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Sans the hat?

Why in 3 of the kirby color scheme lines is there "sans the hat" is that someone's username? or is it a misspelling? Carbonkirby 16:08, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

The Kirby Hat. You know, the powerups? He wears hats with them, normally. It just means "Except without the hat" --Phred 16:13, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
ooo that makes sense. i thought it had to mean "minus the hat" or something. never saw sans the hat before lol. thanks for explaining.

Sonic and Ganondorf costumes

The article claims two of Sonic's alt. colours are designed to look like Scourge, a character unique to the American Archie comics, and Dark Super Sonic, a fan name for a version of Super Sonic unique to the Sonic X anime, while a third is meant to have Silver's bracelets.. However, while Scourge is actually green, Sonic's green alt. is.. a slightly greenish blue. It might be more accurate to say it's based on a palette glitch from Sonic 2 that turned Sonic green, known among fans as "Ashura" and fairly well-known to be the basis of Scourge's design, but even there it clearly looks nothing like the glitch and can't in all good conscience be said to be a reference to that. For the alt. with yellow bracelets I would be willing to concede that they might almost resemble Silver's, but they're much rounder and lack the glowing line; rather, I would suggest they're designed to resemble two small rings. As for our "Dark Super Sonic" friend, once again a simple image shows that the resemblance is minimal, and instead they probably just.. made a darker Sonic. I don't think I have to go further into it than that.

Of course, a simple jaunt into training mode will show us that, in fact, all the Ganondorf alts. have the exact same hair style, which is decidedly different from his Melee/OoT hair style. Thus, the claim that "Many of Ganondorf's color changes make his hair the same as in Melee" is an outright lie and should be removed. 23:13, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Ok, great. I concede the point about Ganondorf, I never argued that. But you can't deny, Sonic does wear bracelets, so that last change was completely uncalled for.Entrea Sumatae 00:12, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
I never.. said he doesn't? However, the article insisted that he wears Silver's bracelets, which is wrong. 00:16, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Read before you edit. The last version that you changed back to essentially "all his costumes look just like him with no changes but color" (which is wrong, by the way, do you see rings on basic Sonic?) said only that he wore bracelets and that his white ones resembled Silver's.Entrea Sumatae 00:20, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
This is my first time doing this. Sonic's rings he wears on his Black, Green, and Red costumes resemble the rings Amy Rose, and Shadow the Hedgehog wear. And Yellow Sonic's rings do bear a very strong resemblence to Silver's, they are just smaller, and they are missing the blue strip but other then that they are exactly the same. Of course they do look like two smaller rings, but nobody else in the series wears two smaller rings around their wrist. Also, I'm not sure if this is relavent but there are also shoe gems in Sonic 06 that change the colors of Sonic's shoes. I've never played the game but I think someone should look into it. (And Dark Super Sonic AKA Dark Sonic, is not fanmade, he was made by TMS, and like EVERYTHING Sonic related, it went directly through Sonic Team before it even saw the light of day) [sorry if I'm not doing this right this is my first time on a wiki] And one last thing, Ashura is green and black not a blueish green.Wring 00:39, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Too much stuff

At the point at which a T1 internet connection can't handle the page, something needs to be done. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 07:29, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

I'd suggest splitting: color changes (SSB), color changes (SSBB), and color changes (SSBM). Keep this page so that we can have a central definition for the term. --Sky (t · c · w) 07:54, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

I have Firefox. I don't, however, have a single residential connection. I share bandwidth with everyone else in my building. That said, it is still a faster connection that most people have, so if I'm having problems, it should be corrected. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 17:39, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
