So did I.
Then I noticed that external helmets tended to cover those, leaving the big ones covered by visors. I also noticed that when they face you, those orange ones look just like giant eyes looking at you, while the six tiny ones would ‘look’ off in weird directions.
Plus the fact that, again, the orange ones are very similar to Super’s design, like the rest of the new pirate.
No, you’re thinking of… er… Advanced, I believe. Or maybe Assault. One of those has dark green tentacle-y armor. Armored ones have neck-brace pentagons, pointy hats, heart-things on their chest armor, shoulder spikes, and upper leg armor, all of which is nearly identical to in Echoes. The only differences are that the heart is blue, not red, they have teeth instead of beaks, and their scythes are replaced by retractable claws looking identical to Super’s claws.
Look at Fusion’s art. Huge, highly visible beaks.
Now look at Super’s, which again have either no mouth at all or a fish-mouth. >_>
The sprites may be similar, but the art, which is what tends to be considered ‘canon’ in spritegames, is not.
Blue is pretty. >_>
But either way, at least he isn’t that ugly brownish-pink color he had in Super and Zero…
Oh, and by the way, look closer at Super’s sprites–their arms are actually very similar to the art (and Corruption’s).
You just happened to pick sprites of the Grey ones, where it’s much harder to see.
