Nah they especially like giving dark-skinned characters light hair colors. As others have said, its probably a function of contrast (especially for manga which is B&W)

She's clearly borrowing 2B's chair.

It appears she can float. She has a number of gliding/floating attacks.

Gotta go Kid Cobra. He's legit cool looking, that helmet/snake spine thing on his back is awesome.


I'd probably use Twintelle as my main female character. Reminds me of Bayonetta a lot.

His evade slides under attacks, making him very hard to hit. If there's anything in addition to that I don't think they've gone into detail on it yet :o

edit: found this: https://www.reddit.com/r/ARMS/commen...ter_abilities/

Ability 1: Can charge up dashes in conjunction with ARMS, making dashes quicker and giving more distance
Ability 2: When “charge dashing” on the ground, Kid Cobra will duck under all incoming attacks

Their Japanese profile says something about them being beach patrolmen.

It's an excuse to make her ass as visible as possible as often as possible.

For beach patrolling you'd expect something more baywatchy or something like mecha-hoff

Well, I expect that's the joke--they're dressed up and act like actual police, but they're pretty much just the beach patrol. Maybe their reason for fighting in the grand prix is to get a promotion.

Of the characters who have dark skin, what is their hair color (or range of hair colors) is what we want to know. When you do a even a superficial overview, certain patterns show up very quickly.

Huh. Maybe. But she usually has a flower aura when she's doing that so I dunno. Obviously not a huge deal but its hard not to notice how weird it looks :P

Fair enough on what the question is, but even with the question being what the hair colour of anime characters with dark skin predominantly being is, I'm not really sure I agree that they're disproportionately 'white haired' either. I just did a quick search to see if maybe there were some I'd forgotten but I find as many, if not more, with brown, black or purple hair as much as white :o

edit: thinking on it though, if you did want an explanation of why light hair and dark skin might show up in anime/game characters a fair bit (outside of the contrast idea you suggested) I suspect you could look to ganguro fashion as a possible influence.

Some cool ideas I've seen for future characters:

- Music-themed fighter with accordion arms
- Pharaoh-themed fighter with papyrus scroll arms
- Movie-themed fighter with film reel arms
- Flower-themed fighter with vine arms
- Electronics-themed fighter with cable arms

Master Mummy is really growing on me too. Seems to be a big softie with a heart of gold, like Hellboy. One of my favorite character archtypes!

Master Mummy probably has the Pharaoh themed one covered.

When I played it at SXSW, there are only 3 types of gloves per character but you can mix and match those 3 on your left and right hand. Ninjara's set of gloves is different than Master Mummy for example.

All of the demos have only allowed people to use the characters' signature gloves, but it's been confirmed multiple times, including in the new direct, that you'll be able to use any gloves on anyone.

I think the poster means in the final game, where each character can unlock the other's gloves and create custom load outs.

How was it for you, anyway?
