Happened again, but this time with a hydra. No idea why.
I saw something similar, with green colored centaurs.
This happened in hangedman_spin_cycle. Both plain and warrior centaurs were the same color. Persisted through save, but I didn't see any more centaurs after this until I died.
Happened yet again, and now it's just plain fucking with me.
A red frost giant. Seriously?
Green frost giant. I've stopped trying to think of ways in which this could make any sense.
|I've seen this, for slime creatures alone - issue 7739 ( https://crawl.develz.org/mantis/view.php?id=7739 [^] )|
|Unfortunately I had killed all the purple ogres in this vault before thinking to ask about it. (presumably coincidentally) there are a lot of other purple enemies there like boggart, ogre mage, Titan, ... https://crawl.jorgrun.rocks/saves/hyperrchandra-crawl-0.19-161115-0122.tar.bz2 [^]|
Here's another save: http://crawl.beRotato.org/crawl/saves/johnnyzero-crawl-git-c929cd22f6-161203-0145.tar.bz2 [^]
I'm pretty sure this is an issue relating to ugly things in bands:
A single ugly thing in a band will cause all monsters within the band to have the same base colour. There's no sort of check that all monsters within the band are ugly things.
The following arena options will spawn situations like the one in my save. Watch the eye of draining color when an ugly thing is spawned as the band member.
"delay:100 no_summons respawn move_respawns ban_glyphs:abcdefghijklmnopqrstvwxyzABCDEFHIJK LMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ eye of draining band v eye of devastation"
The same behavior may be observed by spawning Mnoleg bands.

|Good commit (not a fan of that static colour variable), but it doesn't seem like it explains most of the weirdness in this issue, e.g. the ogres.|

I forgot to mention the second part of the fix which is noted in the commit message. Pre-patch, if placement of an ugly thing band fails, the static variable is not cleared and the next monster placement gets the previously-picked ugly thing colour.
Early return 1:
Early return 2:
Static variable reset missed when returning early:
To reproduce, checkout a pre-patched revision (38049aa058e64533f66adc77c60ad11765dd374f^) and apply the attached notify_of_stale_ugly_colour.patch patch.
Load up crawl in wizmode head to depths (&~U4). Regenerate the level (&ctrl-r) until an error message is printed. Find the affected monster[s] to confirm. Xray vision (&V) and freeze time (&E) may be helpful.
This may take quite a few level generations to trigger, and the ugly thing color may collide with the natural colour of the affected monster[s].
"golden dragon" generation contaminated with stale ugly colour: "green" "deep troll shaman" generation contaminated with stale ugly colour: "white"
edit: Patch was mangled when pasted, attached it. Also, corrected the checkout commit hash.
Ah, that explains it! Extremely good work; this had been a mystery for a long time :)
Pushed as 38049aa/b1c82ab.
