    I've been meaning to write something about this for a while now, but I wanted to address the overall lack of diversity within the game. I'm not talking about official skin color of characters, since that wasn't decided by the devs of this game and overall isn't terrible. More so, I mean the diversity within the current palettes. Don't get me wrong, I'm not claiming it's all white washed, but the pale skinned, white reading palettes certainly outweigh the others. I remember pulling Surgeon General early on in the game, and immediately feeling attached because she actually resembled me, which is a great feeling that many games don't often supply for us non-whites lol

    I'm not asking for some total upheaval, and I do understand that many palettes are taken from popular anime, and popular anime isn't exactly, yknow.......diverse. I also understand there's a decent amount of palettes that don't even use human skin tones (especially Squigly and Double). Just throwing this out there before I get comments pointing out the obvious to me. Also a disclaimer, I am certainly not accusing any of the devs of racism or colorism or what have you for this. This is just what I personally would like to see more of from time to time!

    As for examples, if you all can help to compile a list of character palettes that would make sense in game and also add some diversity, it would be greatly appreciated! In the meantime, here's my own list:
    Connie (Steven Universe)

    Sokka, Katara, Princess Yue (the moon girl) (Avatar: The Last Airbender) (Beo Sokka anyone?)

    Van Van (I Love You Colonel Sanders) (yes, the JoJo reference within the KFC Dating Simulator) (Beowulf, The Man Man? lol)

    Miriam (Also the KFC Dating Simulator)

    Korra (The Legend of Korra) (I know a lot of people didn't like this reboot but it's what we're working with)(the art is nice)

    Allura, Hunk, Lance (Voltron: Legendary Defenders)

    Storm (DC)

    Abdul (Stardust Crusaders)

    Emerald (RWBY) (Great for Cerebella!)

    Kirche von Zerbst (Familiar of Zero)

    Alex (Totally Spies!)

    Symmetra, Sombra, Pharah, Hanzo, Lucio, Baptiste, Doomfist, (Overwatch) (I'm not familiar with the game so I may have missed some characters)

    Bangalore, Lifeline, Gibraltar (Apex Legends)

    Let's add to this!

    Edit: Format

    I hope with the new character they're developing some of these are considered!

    Personally I would like original Tan Daisy as a color
    maybe some characters from She-Ra or Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts

    I think you're picturing a different kind of diversity -- what I'm hoping for is diversity of skin color. Although, an Emperor's New Groove palette collection would be pretty sick

    Speaking of those Nintendo Switch colors: https://forum.skullgirlsmobile.com/threads/what-are-these-new-switch-palettes.16312/

    Includes a Pharah Robo-Fortune and a Xrd Potemkin Big Band (even though he's covered in his Panzerfaust uniform)

    The new character that is coming after Fukua would be an excellent chance for new palette ideas. The best colors have common traits (like Beowulf's #9, based on El Santo a Mexican luchador, a wrestler like Beowulf), so start thinking of what would go pair well with ice-cream addicted little sister princesses. Either that or ageless, eye-patched TV stars...

    Warning: some of these are a little silly and I apologize in advance.

    1. Anyone from the Simpsons (I mean how fun would that be? Maybe Marge filia/fukua or bart Beowulf?)
    2. Invader Zim pallet (Squigly? Fukua?)
    3. My life as a teenage robot- Jenny for robofortune (not exactly diverse but it would be a cool and fitting skin)
    4. Cyborg from teen titans (not sure who would be better... beo or robo)
    5. Jake Long from American Dragon
    6. Black Panther

    I'll keep brainstorming but this is what I've got for now!
