Character Skins

Last updated: X.29.0

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. You can freely change a character’s skin in the Vault wardrobe as often as you like, and you 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, or in promotional events. While most older skins are tradable, all skins added by DECA are soulbound (with the lone exception of the Slime Samurai skin).

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.

Special themed (ST) set skins work differently and are not permanent. Upon equipping all four ST items from a particular set, your character changes into the 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.

There are currently 374 skins in existence (14 classic skins + 348 alternative skins + 11 ST skins), but several are no longer obtainable or admin-only.

Special Themed Set Skins

Special, 16x16 skins that a character will take the appearance of when wearing the respective ST set in its entirety. These skins only persist as long as the full ST set is equipped, and will change back to your normal skin if any part of the set is unequipped.

Mystery Skins

Mystery Skins were introduced in Release X.15 and unlock a random skin when used. There are three different mystery skin tiers, which unlock skins of different rarity. The roster of available skins will change over time.

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.
  • 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.
