Alternate character costumes in the Super Smash Bros. series have always been a fun way to distinguish players from one another. These variants aren't just simple palette-swaps either, for characters such as Bowser Jr. and Olimar have alternate characters instead of a simple makeover like most fighters do. But you already knew that! However, some of the already-mentioned palette-swap costumes derive from adventures within the histories of these characters - you probably already knew that too.
Whatever the case, YouTube channel TheSuperRetroBros has created a video showcasing an array of alternate costumes within Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, and has attempted to pinpoint the inspirations behind each alternate costume listed. Whether this be from in-game footage or even box art, TheSuperRetroBros team has definitely done its homework. However, although some costume origins are obvious, it should be noted that some of these assumptions are purely speculation from the channel's perspective and may not be factual.
