Miscellaneous

Alternates

Credit to Mirai Moon (tbc) for the palette swaps.

Bowser Jr. has a palette swap based on his father's sprite from Super Mario World, he still retains his Koopaling swaps, but now they have alternate swaps based on their sprites from the aforementioned game. The Koopalings play similar to Bowser Jr., but the announcer and audience acknowledge them as separate characters and even have their own series insignas based on their symbol in the Super Mario games.
