Jajankuro pulls off a sexy Byleth cosplay complete with her fishnet stockings, stomach window, and Sword of the Creator prop

Byleth was announced as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 1’s fifth and final challenger on January 16, 2020 and later released on January 28, 2020. While the reception towards the fighter was initially lukewarm, fans of the Super Smash Bros. series eventually learned to enjoy the inclusion despite the fact that Byleth is the eighth Fire Emblem rep on the character select screen.

Notably, the female version of Byleth has become a popular cosplay choice. As such, Chloe “Jajankuro” has a number of photos depicting herself as Byleth on her Instagram page.

It’s often said that one of the most difficult parts about recreating female Byleth’s look for the purpose of cosplaying her is the recreation of her unique pattern fishnet stockings that shows random bits of Byleth’s legs. Of course, it would appear that Jajankuro has opted for a different design of Byleth’s leggings, though they seem to be equally as complicated looking.

Another key feature about Byleth is the weapon that she wields. Jajankuro has plenty of shots of her Byleth as she’s wielding the legendary Sword of the Creator.

Female Byleth also has a peculiar part of her costume known as a “stomach window.” It’s almost like a cleavage window, except it seems to be specifically designed to show off Byleth’s belly button.

Over on her Twitter page, Jajankuro has posted a couple of shots of her Byleth with a dark teal color. For context, this is the second costume for Byleth in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (since male Byleth is the default appearance).

Byleth takes on this appearance for about half of Fire Emblem: Three Houses until a certain event causes Byleth to essentially “fuse” with Sothis. Funnily enough, Byleth’s hair color neither resembles that of her parents, Jeralt and Sitri.

By doing this, it’s demonstrated that Byleth can tear through dimensions while using the Sword of the Creator. Canonically, this transformation makes Byleth quite powerful, though it actually doesn’t impact gameplay that greatly. Of course, it should be noted that Byleth is generally considered to be the best unit in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, with or without this transformation.

In terms of how it affects gameplay, Byleth’s Professor’s Guidance personal skill transforms into the Professor’s Guidance+ personal skill. In addition to granting 20% experience gain to the user and adjacent allies like the Professor’s Guidance skill, Byleth also deals an additional two damage during combat.

After that specific chapter is finished with, Byleth will then gain access to the Enlightened One class, a class exclusive to Byleth. Though it provides the most proficiencies out of all the classes in the game with four of them, its stat growths are, ironically, not all that impressive.

Oddly, however, it has been demonstrated that Byleth can undergo this transformation in Fire Emblem: Three Hopes (released June 24, 2022) without fusing with Sothis. Needless to say, fighting Byleth with this hair color proves to be a much greater challenge than fighting him or her with their default hair color.

Regardless, this is Byleth’s eighth costume color in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Like with all costumes in Smash, choosing these colors will have no impact on Byleth’s gameplay.
