Finally! My first Boss hack!

You read that right! I’m finally able to texture hack bosses, And this is my first one.

It’s black Ridley from Metroid Zero Mission!



If you want to know how I made this, I used Smashbox to make It. You can download It here. And just so you know, This will only work in Boss battles mode. Ridley won’t be black when you fight him in the SSE.


And for those of you that can’t see It there is a tab at the top of the page that says “Downloads” you click on It and you go to a page that links to where you can download this.

    Ridley wasn’t black in Zero Mission… cool texture, though. 😛

    @ C.Olimar788

    @ Master Hax
    You Are Right!

    He was a dark Purple like in SSBB. I have played the game enough times to notice. I do like that you have made a boss texture.

  11. 11 PAVGN 09/09/2009 at 8:09 PM

    THAT’S dark purple?

  12. 12 wwwilliam0024 09/09/2009 at 8:31 PM

    wow looks better then original one!

  13. 13 smashmaniac2008 09/09/2009 at 8:37 PM

    EPIC!!!! looks like a shiny charizard lol (joke) anyways yeah good zero mission ridley though looks more like RidleyX to me.

  14. 14 PAVGN 09/09/2009 at 8:39 PM

    @ smashmaniac2008

    I actually think the two look different and I’m thinking about making Ridley X too.

  15. 15 razanak7 09/09/2009 at 8:52 PM

    Doesn’t look very black to me.

    Still looks cool though.

  16. 16 PAVGN 09/09/2009 at 8:57 PM

    I thought that someone might make the case that he’s not black in Zero Mission because he doesn’t look It when you fight him. But that may be because of the lighting of the room you fight him in. Anyway, It should be obvious to anyone who isn’t color blind that Ridley is black in Metroid Zero Mission If they where paying any attention at all to Ridley in the cutscenes in that game that feature him.

    Sorry, but that doesn’t look purple at all to me, if anything, it’s black.

  19. 19 Mario & Sonic Guy 09/09/2009 at 10:00 PM

    I’m guessing that this Smashbox program is also the key to properly editing Ganondorf’s Final Smash, along with the Centurions of Pit’s Final Smash.

    I wonder if that’s how Register was able to make the Shroob Petey and Shiny Rayquaza textures.

  20. 20 razanak7 09/09/2009 at 10:01 PM


    I never said it was purple, it’s just not black.

    I see brown and red. No black.

  21. 21 fireking220 09/09/2009 at 10:04 PM

    @mario and sonic guy

    Register made the shiny rayquaza and shroob petey b4 smashbox was released

  22. 22 Mario & Sonic Guy 09/09/2009 at 10:57 PM


    Last I recalled, Rayquaza isn’t ASHable. I once did a bit of a test on the Rayquaza texture with ASH and the texture got messed up after the completion of step 2.

    @Mario & Sonic Guy

    He manually hexed the boss textures.

  24. 24 S. 09/10/2009 at 10:33 AM

    ^ Pretty much. Manual hexing for the win. @_@

  25. 25 No One 09/10/2009 at 4:14 PM

    AWESOME but i jsut cant find download link

  26. 26 omgitsns9 09/10/2009 at 4:35 PM


    Please! Please! We should not judge a boss texture based on the color of its TGA files! We should all be able to come together as one and love one texture and another!

    Come togetherrr! riiiight now! over me! (sk-sk-skoodibooo Bah)

  27. 27 Lexx 09/10/2009 at 4:39 PM

    omgitsns9 made me crap my pants with laughter. ._.

  28. 28 PAVGN 09/10/2009 at 5:43 PM

    @ ShukakuSand

    Thank you, I was going to say that.

    @ No One

    The download is up now.

    @ fireking220

    Would you like for me to send you Smashbox and Ridley’s .pac file?

  29. 29 No One 09/10/2009 at 7:50 PM

  30. 30 PAVGN 09/10/2009 at 7:52 PM

    No One, Does the tab at the top of the page that says “Downloads” mean anything to you?

  31. 31 TK 421 09/10/2009 at 8:43 PM

    He wasn’t black in the cut scenes. PLAY THE GAME!

  32. 32 PAVGN 09/10/2009 at 8:47 PM

    TK 421 is officially color blind.

    How that does not look black to ANYBODY is far beyond my understanding.

  33. 33 Lexx 09/10/2009 at 9:28 PM

    @ PAVGN

    Some people are just idiots. =)

  34. 34 ShoghiDX 09/11/2009 at 12:34 AM

    this reminds me so much of Red eyes black dragon from yugioh, but that show was gay. AMAZING edit!

  35. 35 No One 09/11/2009 at 7:47 AM

  36. 36 TK 421 09/11/2009 at 4:25 PM

    OHHHHH! I SEE! Recolors suck! jk

  37. 37 PAVGN 09/11/2009 at 5:24 PM

    @ Lexx

    More like most people.

  38. 38 Mochtroid127 09/14/2009 at 12:44 AM

    I think he looks like a weird mix of gray and brown, he is red and purple in the official game artwork, but who cares, the texture kicks ass and let’s leave it at that!
