Are you full of neon sunshine or more of a gray overcast? Maybe you're neither and more into the Mario red! No matter your personality, there's a Joy-Con color for you. While the Nintendo Switch has a large variety of Joy-Con colors to choose from, choosing the right one is extremely important. The Joy-Cons are one of the Nintendo Switch's premier features, and while there are plenty of controllers for the Nintendo Switch, nothing beats the style and finesse of a set of neon Joy-Cons. Here are all of the Joy-Con colors.

All available Joy-Con colors

Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Cons

The most common combo: Neon Red and Neon Blue

The Neon Red and Neon Blue combo might be a common Joy-Con color, but that doesn't make it any less impressive. The bright colors help your Nintendo Switch pop, and they work just as well as any other Joy-Con.

Keep it basic: Gray

The other common Nintendo Switch color is Gray. It may be darker, but the color is just as bold as the brighter alternatives and matches the Nintendo Switch and the dock very nicely. Perfect for gamers who aren't looking for anything too flashy.

Neon Purple and Neon Orange Joy-Cons

Bright n' happy: Neon Purple and Orange

This neon combo features a bright Purple and Orange combo. While they give off Halloween vibes, the colors look good all year round.

An electrifying combo: Blue and Neon Yellow

This bright combo set is gorgeous and reminds me of playing my Switch while relaxing on the beach. This Joy-Con combo pairs well with Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee.

Neon Pink and Neon Green Joy-Cons

A sweet pop: Neon Green and Neon Pink

Another loud and proud color combo, Neon Green and Neon Pink resemble a watermelon or a pack of sour gum. They look especially good when playing Splatoon 2 and ARMS, too.

These Neon Purple and Neon Orange Joy-Cons have a spooky vibe to them, don't they? However, they also complement each other quite nicely. The orange and purple envoke memories of the battlefields of Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, in my humble opinion.

Neon Red Joy-Cons

Hot to the touch: Neon Red

You can liven up your Switch with a set of reds (officially called "Neon Red") to pair up with your standard set. Unfortunately, the originals are hard to come by, even on sites like eBay, so you may have to alter an existing pair of Joy-Cons to fit your needs.
