    So Gold Mario is just a skin for Metal Mario?

    • Don’t see why they would need to waste a character slot on him.

        Yet the Villager and Inkling use up two slots rather then one like in the original.

        • Gold Mario is a color swap of Metal Mario. The Villagers and Inklings have different models. This is the same reason the different color Yoshi and Shy Guy are in the same box. It is also why the Kooplings all have their own spots.

            I know Gold Mario is a color swap of Metal Mario. The male and female Villager share the same slot in MK8 and they have different models, but in Deluxe it’s two. They could have the boy and girl Inkling as one slot too, but no, they didn’t.

          • If rainbows are rainbow colored, why aren’t all guns made out of clay?

    Seeing this, isn’t it about time they just listed the character variations under one character?

      Except they aren’t (all) just visual variations. Character weight varies. The ones with variations under the same entry should all have the same weight.

      The North American site ( ) says Mario and Tanooki Mario are medium weight, Baby Mario is light weight, and Metal Mario is heavy weight.

        I hadn’t considered that. Good point.
