In Super Smash Bros. Universe, each character has a different number of alternate costumes (officially known as color changes) - different appearances for the purpose of distinguishing themselves from other players who are using the same character or for the purpose of distinguishing allies from opponents in team battles, or just for the purpose of choosing the player's favorite alternate costume. Several characters on the roster can either change into different characters, or change into a different costume.
