NieR Automata: character appearance - how to change? NieR Automata guide, tips

This page of the NieR Automata tutorial explains how to change your character's appearance. We show you how to put on a new outfit or set a new pod skin.

This page of the guide to the game NieR Automata explains how to change the appearance of the main characters and how to acquire different clothes. You will also find out if changing the controlled character's appearance has any real impact on the gameplay.

Basic information

In NieR Automata, you can change the appearance of the characters, but it won't affect their statistics. This simply means that all clothes in the game world are cosmetic items and thus they only change the appearance of the characters. If you want to increase the attack power of your characters, then you should focus on equipping them with better melee weapons and pods - we discussed this on the Character development and pods page.

You can obtain appearance-changing items for your characters in several ways. The most obvious method is by getting rewards for completing quests and winning battles in the arena. Cosmetic items may be among the gifts you receive. If you have the extended version of the game, you will receive a number of additional cosmetic items (e.g. 3 full outfits to unlock, new pod skins). We described the GotY version bonuses on the Game of the Yorha Edition page.

Some cosmetic items are reserved for particular characters and you will only be able to use them in chapters and scenes in which the given character is playable.
