In Rivals of Aether, each character has a different set of alternate costumes, for the purpose of distinguishing themselves from from opponents or just for the purpose of choosing a favorite alternate costume. In addition to preset colours and premium costumes (some of which are able to be purchased directly from steam), the player is able to customise one custom skin with whatever colours are desired, with another custom colour slot unlockable after getting the Ardent Rival achievement.

Color change selection Edit

Player may choose their character's costume in the selection screen. In team battles the player will also be surrounded in an outline of their team color. Players may not have the same character with the same costume.


Zetterburn Edit





Ori & SeinEdit

Orcane Edit


Premium Skins Edit

Some alternate costumes are only obtainable during events or by purchasing them. These are known as Premium Skins. They generally have a special color scheme and a different taunt.

Champion Skins Edit

This theme of Premium Skins was the first to be introduced. Champion characters are transparent, which cannot be replicated in the custom color builder. Also, the taunt of Champion characters involves them holding a shining crystal and the pose can be held.

So far, all of these characters have Champion skins:

  • Zetterburn
  • Wrastor
  • Kragg
  • Etalus
  • Clarien

Early Access Skins Edit

Players who purchased the game while it was still in early access can use the early access skins. The skins use Gameboy colors and no shading, which cannot be replicated in the custom color builder. They do not have different taunts.

Golden Skins Edit

There are currently two 'golden' character skins, Golden Orcane and King Etalus. Both are only obtainable by purchasing a Rivals of Aether plushie.

Tournament Skins Edit

Many skins are related to tournaments and can be bought at them or through a tournament's website. These skins normally have a color scheme that uses the tournament's colors, and a special taunt.

So far, these are all of the tournament skins:

  • Summit Orcane (Smash Summit)
  • Summit Kragg (Smash Summit)
  • Twitch Absa (Twitchcon)
  • Genesis Forsburn (Genesis 4)
  • Shine Zetterburn (Shine)
  • Arcade Maypul (SmashCon)

Other Premium Skins Edit

  • Spangled Wrastor (for Mang0)
  • Panda Maypul
  • Excalibur (for Alpharad)
  • Burrito Kragg
