Most people don't like recolours but some I think are better than their original selves. For example I think the colours of Muchomon, Akatorimon, and ModokiBetamon look better than the colours of Penguinmon, Kokatorimon, and Betamon.

wait, ModokiBetamon has different colors?
I'm not sure I like them more than the originals but Solarmon's sunny appearance makes me hapoy and I absolutely adore Icemon after Hacker's Memory because of its sliding victory animation meant to look like ice skating (you should look it up it's so cute. He also slides around on the floor in the overworld). The Gotsumon - Icemon - Meteormon path I had a ton of fun with in general as my first Digimon partner in my first playthrough of Hacker's Memory

I think I actually like BlackAgumon X and Black evolutions of Terriermon due to Doberman's colors

Also Alter-B is the original. Alter-S is the recolour.
He's one of the villains from Appmon.
Basically Globemon, but grey with a cape and a bunch of eyes on his body.

I know Alter-B debuted first, but Alter-S is mentioned in his profile, so they were kind of adjacent in creation.
Even if he doesn't quite fit the recolour categorization, I still figured I mention him.
I think his black with red and gold accents colour scheme has a better balance than Alter-S.

I am a twisted person who likes most of the recolors more than the originals. I like, maybe, the virus MetalGreymon more than its vaccine recolor? That's about it. I think most recolors tend to be a bit quirkier in appearance, which I like. Also, NiseDrimogemon is the funniest thing and no one can convince me otherwise.

I wouldn't dream of trying. I mean, it's the shoddy disguise gag but as an individual monster with its own, official profile. The only thing that could maybe elevate it is if it had glasses as well.

Mikemon is my favorite Digimon, because it's a tortie. Yes, calicos are tortie, tortie and white specifically. Shima Unimon and Dokunemon have nicer color schemes than the originals in my opinion; and Nise Drimogemon is just funny.

I adore Psychemon and still hate we got Gururumon being less colorful than Garurumon when it should be a neon rainbow wolf.

You have a point. Though Mikemon is a good recolor. Different enough.

ToyAgumon (Black) just for the hilarity in how it likes to bully children instead of playing with them. A sadist, I know. :devilish:

Kuzuhamon for being even more well-versed in ancient magics.

I always thought of them as being separate digimon, not a mere 'recolor'. Anyway mine is Blackwargreymon.

But seriously, some look far cooler in other colors.

ShimaUnimon! Slightly cooler design. I once had an Elecmon oc that digivolved to ShimaUnimon. Not sure if that line actually exists but color-wise it almost works.

Speaking of recolors, what of the various Digimon recolors unique to Digimon World 3? The black-and-yellow Scorpiomon stands out to me the most, at least as far as my terrible memory is concerned.

That line does exist! Funnily enough Elecmon evolves to ShimaUnimon but not the regular Unimon. Just one of those things...

YukiAgumon and Panjyamon are my favourites. Also Doumon and BlackWereGarurumon.
Panjyamon is freaking cool too. Shame he hasn't been seen much on the animation side other than in Frontier.
