Character Creation

The first screen when creating a new character.

Character Creation allows the player to customize their character before the story campaign begins. Various aspects of the character can be adjusted, some of which cannot be changed later in the game yet. If the player wishes to change these aspects, they need to reset their character via the Settings menu. Currently only one character can be created per account. A separate character slot will become available for the planned Nuzlocke feature.

Body settings[edit]

Various options to change the morphological appearance of the character are available. These settings are currently unique to character creation and cannot be adjusted later in the game.

Body type[edit]

Two body types are available, representing a feminine and masculine morphology. They are not tied to pronouns and do not reflect sex or gender, so they can be freely chosen depending on personal preference. All cosmetics are compatible with all body types, with only minor differences in some cases.

Skin color[edit]

A wide range of skin colors is available.


Four style options are available, representing idle stances and running animations. Note: that the stances and running animations are associated with each other and cannot be selected separately.

Head shape[edit]

Several head shape options can be selected. They differ mostly in the lower half, with focus on the chin.


Face settings provide a range of variations for eyebrows, eyes, nose, and mouth. Note that these are associated with each face option and cannot be selected separately.

Eye color[edit]

A wide range of eye colors is available.


Unlike the other settings, cosmetics can be changed later in the game. Note that various options available during character creation are not yet available in boutiques. This applies to dye colors as well. Also note that cosmetics selected in the character creation menu cannot be traded.

Fifteen hairstyles are available.

Identity settings[edit]

The final tab of the character creation screen allows the player to create a username, select their preferred pronouns and preferred voice. Currently, the preferred pronouns can be changed, while the ability to change username is planned for a future update.


A unique character name must be chosen. Several rules apply regarding the length, available characters, and capitalization.

  • Names must be unique.
  • Names must be between 3 and 15 characters.
  • Only a-z characters.
  • At most 3 words can be used, separated by a space ( ), apostrophe (') or hyphen (-).
  • At most 2 separators can only be used in between words and can't be used consecutively.
  • At least one of the words must have 3 characters.
  • Only the first character of each word can be capitalized.


Two or three pronoun options are available, depending on the language. They represent masculine and feminine options, as well as a non-binary alternative.


Currently two voices are available. Simple sounds are used in certain dialogues and overworld scenarios, such as jumping onto the surfboard.


Prior to Early Access 0.8, top and bottom slot character creation cosmetics were tradable. This update was not retroactive, copies received before that patch remain tradable.
