Palette suggestions for characters with duplicate palettes

As we all know, most characters still have duplicate palettes for their Start alternates, and considering business seems slow lately, might as well put our spare time to good use and fill up those holes.
don't remove the palette or change its indexes, or your palette will be useless. if your graphic editing program has an ability to edit the palette itself, use that. note, it usually has to be a pretty old program (like psp7 which i use), since these days none of them have this option anymore.

some lone colors that are in the middle or to the side of a color group might not appear on the sprite, but they're used somewhere else. i didn't want to search for them, lol.
(Note for those who don't know: PSP7 = Paint Shop Pro 7)
Here's a list of characters who currently have duplicate palettes:

And here's a list of exceptions:
  • Soma Cruz: He was supposed to have his AoS outfit for his start alt., but so far no one has coughed up a complete sheet.
  • Carrie Fernandez: IIRC Rukifellth said he would be happy to work on her LoD and Maria outfit, so I'm assuming he will be in the future.
Suggestions may be judged by anyone, but the final call still lies in the higher-ups' hands.
Note that the lists may be updated in the future.

(Holy schnozz, making a table was way harder than I thought it'd be.)
EDIT: Added a submission list for easier judgment. Left out the references though since this wasn't supposed to be a reference-fest. Apparently we're just not that original. :P (<- Says the guy who couldn't come up with anything original to save his life.)
Anyway, let me know if I missed or miscredited any submissions.
(click to show/hide)

Notice: Rukifellth, your Hugh (AKA Sephiroth) and Charlotte (AKA Little Witch Academia Student) submissions have been rendered invalid due to not following the character's color separation. For Hugh, what is asked for here are simple palette swaps, not a brand new color scheme with its own separation. As for Charlotte, there are some pixels that render the palette useless, likely due to not using a program that can manipulate the palette directly. Next time, please follow the guidelines as stated by Serio in this post. Note that you can resubmit revised versions of your submissions as long as they follow the guidelines. In fact, you are advised to redo all of your submissions using an appropriate program.
Sorry for making a call in advance like this without consulting the mods first.

Update: Added Grant's sample sprite with Serio's permission, and removed Julius as he is now complete.

Beyond simply making up new colors, I don't really have many good ideas. But I have a few thoughts:

  • Frog: The toad enemy, as in the larger brown one from the underground waterway in SotN.
  • Montano: If Royce ever made it in, he could fill this spot to save space on the character select. Just because they're from the same series.

i saved it as gif because png has this "optimized png" thing that destroys palette indexing, breaking it and making the sprite useless.

I think some of the more complicated characters could use palette templates akin to stock M.U.G.E.N. character development; I'm working on something for the Werewolf and I have no idea where the brightest hair/gauntlet shades are supposed to come from, although I'm fairly certain his glow/fireball is in the palette before his eyes. :x

So I tried to make a PC-98 Reimu but shared colors up the wazoo pretty much stopped me, so I shifted to something more doable and attempted a Yukari-based one. Tell me how much I screwed up. And yes, I shifted the whites to look a bit bluer so the brightest color on the boots (hopefully) doesn't look too off. And I am very much guilty of directly copy-pasting her hair colors, amongst other colors. If this ends up being accepted, Ran-Marisa and Chen-Cirno would be nice, if possible.

EDIT: And seeing as we have a Shanoa palette that's apparently based on Ky, I thought "why don't we put in an Albus palette that's loosely based on Sol?" Again, tell me if I screwed up, and by how much.

Do we have a Ritcher Reimu and Alucard Sakuya yet? ;p I might give it a shot making a sprite over version of those 2 ;p

Lol... Bandit Revolver. I always thought that Shanoa palette was Saber (F/SN), but now that I think about it, that would make more sense if the white and blue were flipped.

Why not an Albus based on Velkan? You know... the guy from the Van Helsing movie. Still nothing? Well.. this guy:

I don't know if Albus already has a similar palette already.
Both wielded a gun, fought against their "sisters" and ended up badly because of Dracula.

Do you have a better reference picture, by any chance? That one's been filtered to high hell and back.

Well...his pants are more or less the same color as his vest, right? Maybe a slightly lighter shade?
