In Super Smash Bros., each character had at least four costumes, one for each of the costume-changing C buttons. Some characters had an extra costume (or two) to accommodate for Team Battles if their four costumes lacked a red, blue, or green variation; these costumes cannot be selected outside of Team Battle since there are only four C buttons.
