Colour refers to how a Neopet looks. Sometimes this just means a different hued coat (in the case of colours like pink, orange, and the 4 basics) but a colour can also completely transform a pet. Colours like maraquan or faerie change how a specific species looks by adding or subtracting various features.

There are several different ways to change a pet's colour. The most common is to use a paintbrush.

The following paintbrushes are on the site, but there is no corresponding colour: Glass Paint Brush, Stone Paint Brush, Lutari Paint Brush. Glass was removed, stone was replaced by relic, and the lutari brush was flat-out never set for anything.

List of Colours


These colours are available upon creating a pet. They can also be morphed, painted, changed through a Fountain Faerie quest, and zapped by the Lab Ray.


These colours are available from Paintbrushes. Many of these (but not all) can also be attained through morphing potions and the Lab Ray, and all are available through Fountain Faerie quests.


Some colours cannot be "painted on" by a paintbrush, but must be achieved through other means.

Lab only


Chia only fruits

By feeding a Chia magical chia pops, they can be changed into special colours that reflect the flavour.
