The white, fan-like mantle at the back is larger, along with black, zigzagging attachments. A rather minor change is that of the design for her knee guards. Her dual knives' color scheme is changed from orange and brown to gold and black. The knives' hilt is now black and circular with a yellow thick border. There are also lightly pink tinted edges that were added to the blades of the knives while circlets of the same color are found above the knives' hilts and by the ends.<p>
