Character Skins

Last updated: X.34.2.0

Realm of the Mad God introduced character skins in the Backpack Build (Release 6.0.0).

Unlockable skins remain available on the account even after death. They only need to be unlocked once, and then may be selected upon creating a new character, or an existing character can switch into a new skin at the Vault wardrobe. Players can freely change a character’s skin in the Vault wardrobe as often as they like and can also change back into the original/classic skin.

Some unlockable skins can only be purchased for Realm Gold in the skin selection or character selection menus; most unlockable skins appear as items, and must be consumed. These can be acquired as drops from certain enemies, in Mystery Boxes, through packages, by trading with other players, from the Tinkerer, the Login Seer, Event Chests, or in promotional events. While most older skins are tradable, nearly all skins added by DECA are soulbound.

Most skins must be obtained from Mystery Boxes, either directly or indirectly. Newly added skins will be rare rewards from their respective boxes, while older skins will be found in “Legacy” boxes that refresh in a near-daily basis. To counteract possibly needing to spend an indefinite amount of Realm Gold due to the random nature of Mystery Box rewards, Crystals of Fortune and Crystals of Extreme Fortune are common rewards from new skin and legacy skin boxes, respectively. These can be exchanged at The Tinkerer for a character or pet skin of the player’s choice from the current box rewards pool.

Exclusive skins function similarly to unlockable skins, except these can only be obtained through special methods and are given to a limited number of players.

Set tier (ST) skins work differently and are not permanent. Upon equipping all four ST items from a particular set, your character changes into the 16x16 set skin. Most ST sets also grant extra stat bonuses and fire a different weapon projectile. If you switch out any of the ST equipment the skin immediately disappears.

Dyes and Cloths used on a character will remain, and are not affected by changing into a new skin.

A complete list of unlocked skins can be found in the Skins tab in a player’s Realmeye page. Not counting the 16 default class skins, there are currently 647 skins in existence (25 ST skins + 620 alternative skins + 2 unlisted ST skins), but several are no longer obtainable or exclusive to small groups of players. Therefore, it is essentially impossible to obtain every skin in the game through normal means.

Notes

  • When a special themed ST item is de-equipped, the character will revert to its standard class skin.
  • Though larger than other skins, special themed set skins do not change the hitbox of a character.
  • A common issue with using skin items will result in a failure to unlock the skin and the message “Please re-enter your Vault and try to use the item again.”
  • When changing to a regular-sized skin from the Oryx Awesome skin, the character appears smaller due to a bug.
  • Shoveguy, Scarlet & Slime Ninja were initially Soulbound, but became tradeable in Release 21.1.0.
  • The Gentleman and King Knifeula skins were initially tradeable, but became soulbound in Release 23.0.0 due to reports that they were being duplicated by players and sold for profit. The King Knifeula skin was made tradeable once more in Release 25.0.1.
  • The Platinum skins were originally soulbound, but were made tradeable in Release 27.1.0.
  • Little Helper, Santa & Iceman were initially limited time only skins that were only available during Christmas 2012 (in the case of Little Helper & Santa) & Christmas 2013 (in the case of Iceman). When Release 27.2.0 was released, they were re-introduced as tradeable skins.
  • The Golden Archer set’s skin does not show up on Realmeye, & it does not count towards your skin total.
