Color Palette

I'm not sure why, but between the original and the international editions the color palette on many characters was switched. This includes minor characters as well as bosses. While the giant shadow boss Darkside's color was not perceptively switched the following two bosses had large alterations. Interestingly, there does not appear to be a coherent pattern in the alteration.

Boss 1: Darkside (Destiny Islands)
Original --------------------------- Final Mix

Boss 2: Guard Armor (Traverse Town)
Original ------------------------ Final Mix

Boss 3: Trickmaster (Wonderland)
Original -------------------------- Final Mix

While Guard Armor's palette is switched from purple and black to a swathe of primary blue, yellow and reds, Trickmaster's colors are switched from more primary black and red to valentine's day pink and purple. So, the two color palettes appear to be going in the opposite directions between editions of the game.
