Which Ridley skin do you use most frequently? Feel free to vote and say which you use. I'll start. I usually use appearance 4, or the Fusion skin.

1: Other M / Super
2: Mecha (Prime)
3: Super (Artwork)
4: Fusion
5: Zero
6: NES
7: Fusion (Cyro)
8: Mecha (Zero)


(I couldn't find a good image that was in English that showed the current, up to date set of Ridley skins in-game)

If my avatar didn't give it away, I use the red boxart Ridley.

I think Ridley got dealt a great hand though since I feel like he doesn't have a single bad color scheme. I was originally planning to alternate colors more since I liked a lot of them but I initially jumped into things with the Red and it just sort of stuck and has stayed as my identity since.

They knew Meta-Ridley was popular so they popped out two skins for him. However I also enjoy Red Super Ridley as well.

Now we just need:

1.) Proteus Ridley

2.) Psychotic Eyes Melee Ridley

3.) Original NES Cover Art Ridley.

META RIDLEY. Though I think the purple parts of him are too... purpley. They should be darker, almost black, like in Metroid Prime. I honestly didn't know those parts of him were organic until I saw the Ultimate skin; I thought that he was completely armored before.

The only issue I have is that his hands aren't armored/mech. As someone said before, it almost looks like he's wearing sleeves, with the way it cuts off at his hands.

Overall, I use pretty much every one of Ridley's skins though. Meta and Red are my most used, with NES purple and Gold close behind. Blue and green don't stick out enough for me, but I do still occasionally use them. Also, I don't like Mecha's green gums...

Yeah, just some of the little changes would make the Meta Ridley skin so much better, though is still one of his best skins in my opinion but try to avoid using too much. The Mecha skin is still nice as an alternative even if I use it less.

Other than that, red, gold, and blue are all great, default skin notwithstanding. The green one doesn’t stand out for me either, though is not bad.

I use the SNES artwork one, but I actually thought it was just injured Ridley from Super Metroid. I chose to signify my incompetence with the character I chose it because it looks cool.

Hmm, now that we have a decent number of votes, I'm certainly noticing a heavy lean towards the fist three skins. I see a lot of Mecha (Prime) skins online, and would say that's probably the one I think I encounter the most often.

Interestingly, I don't recall seeing many of the Super(Artwork) red Ridley players online so far, though it's in first place in our poll. I may start keeping a personal tally of what Ridley skins I see when I play online and try to compare it to the results here.

I'm also confused. The total vote percentages on this poll add up to well over 100%. How is that possible? There are 21 total votes, but each vote still represents 5.6% of the total. According to the percentages, there should be 18 votes. It looks like 3 people voted for 2 (which is fine, as I put the max voting amount at 2 choices), but the system still counted the people who voted twice as one voter in the denominator of all percentage computations, but applied their vote to each category as a +1 in the numerator of the percentage computation. I wonder if this is considered intended behavior, or if it's a bug, as I'd expect intended functionality of counting a participant who voted for two as either two separate votes, or two "half votes" from one participant.
