I can’t be the only one who does this. That is, imagining certain palette swaps as completely different characters. As shown here, I sometimes jokingly refer to purple Charizard as Ridley. Green Greninja is Kermit the Frog, white (Light Suit) Samus is a storm trooper, and so on.
What perplexes me, though, is that characters like Lucina and Dark Pit began as alternate costumes in Smash before becoming their own separate character, yet Daisy hasn’t received similar treatment.
