Here are some potential color palettes I put together for our digital champion:



References:
Yellow - Default
Red - Guilmon
Dark Blue - MetalGreymon (Virus)
Green - Betamon
Light Blue - Veemon
Pink - Koromon
White - SnowAgumon
Black - BlackAgumon

I've also made a hypothetical Challenger Pack over on the general forum in case anyone wants to check it out. Just my little tribute to a franchise that's very important to me.

There weren't a whole lot of things I could reference with the green color that was related to Agumon, and Smash characters always have red, blue and green colors, so I chose Betamon because it has a similar eye design to Agumon, as well as it being prominent in a lot of early promotional content. It was also the one other Rookie Digimon on the first Digimon Virtual Pet alongside Agumon, so I guess there's also a loose connection there.

fair enough i guess, though i would say that connections a little bit stronger than loose

Digimon Tamers: Battle Spirit has an alternate color for Agumon because it's a fighting game, that is a reddish pink with blue eyes.

no I did, think veemon was the only one I didn't play as, but I have no memory of this colour swap
Well when you play as Agumon and get to the Agumon stage it appears because you're using Agumon. Anytime you play as one of the starting characters they're replace with their alternate color when you would fight them in the story. Also, if you didn't play as Veemon, you didn't play as all the Digimon, because Lopmon, Impmon, Gabumon, BlackAgumon and EX-Agumon are unlockable digimon. You unlock BlackAgumon by beating the game twice with two different characters, you unlock Lopmon by beating the game with any 3 digimon but not the 2 you used to get BlackAgumon, you unlock Impmon by beating the game with 300, or more D-Spirit, and having beaten Impmon, you unlock Gabumon and EX-Agumon by completing the game with all of the original Digimon, along with Lopmon and BlackAgumon.

No ToyAgumon skin no buy! :p
Well, my Photoshop skills do have their limits haha.

I do think it brings up a question of how they’d handle his Digivolutions with a ToyAgumon skin though, since there isn’t a ToyGreymon and so forth.

Does Agumon technically count as sleeper's pick? I think that would be the case because so many people think Digimon started as anime.

Basically yes, seeing as the public consciousness associates V-pets with Tamagotchi. The second Digimon gets featured in Smash, their minds would explode.

To state my educated opinion; overall, there's nothing in particular that points towards some DLC characters being likely to getting alts. PP, Banjo and Terry only have palette swaps (with slight edits for Terry and PP at most). Terry's palettes do have clear references, but only on the caps. You have to squint to think that Banjo's palettes reference anything at all, and even then it's a stretch.

If the staff thinks about including alts for certain characters or have color variants referencing something, cool, otherwise it's not really a solid priority.

In most games that have ToyAgumon, one of his digivolution trees tends to be the Greymon line so he could still digivolve into that if Digivolution was included as his gimmick

no, banjo and kazooie have some pretty clear ones, particularly the one that looks like grunty and the ones that came from tooie's multiplayer mode

rigth so you think that because not every alt is a reference to something, agumon would get no reference alts at all? cause thats kind of what it sounds like
It doesn't list all of them. I said what I said and I'll stand by it to the death!

I have a problem with your Challenger Pack and a question.

I said it in another thread (I can't remember which one), but don't read too deeply into the random goofy pictures that Sakurai posts. It seems unlikely that he's weaving in subtle little clues and hints for the next fighter which could be interpreted hundreds of different ways and twisted to fit whatever character a person chooses to support.

I feel the need to repost this:


Let's not desperately look for hints where there aren't any, this isn't CTR Nitro-Fueled.
