Deadpool treats every day like it's Halloween: he dresses up in a sexy costume, tricks a bunch of bad guys, and tries stealing treats from everyone he can. This Deadpool theme might look like it takes Maximum Effort, but it's really one of the easier themes to apply.

It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's ANDROID! Okay, these themes don't come with utility belts or capes, but they are amazing Batman and Superman themes that you can rock on Halloween or any other night of the year. Because you're Batman!

Harley's theme is playful, colorful, and ever so slightly crazy, so it's perfect for Halloween! Deadshot's muted theme is both deadly efficient and drop-dead beautiful. So be a bad guy this holiday and get your Suicide Squad on with these lovely Suicide Squad themes.

iPhone

It's a trap!

Halloween's a wonderful night for getting in costume and tricking people, so grab your Android, slap this iPhone Theme on it, and go see how long it takes your friends to realize they've been had. Bonus points if you can show them how awesome Android's home screens can look by switching back to a more creative theme once their minds have been blown.

Windows Phone

Like Windows Phone, but useful

Say what you will about Windows Phone, dressing your Android up as one for Halloween can also lead to some fun pranks. Also, considering the robust Android offering Microsoft offers, this could also be a gateway into some of their apps you'd never considered (or known). No Ninja Cat costume is complete without this Windows Phone theme!

Updated October 2020: I didn't publish any new themes this year, which is a major bummer, but there's more coming. Mark my words, there are more themes coming next year once the chaos of 2020 is over!!

  • I love the theme articles. Love android and the ability to make my homescreens look different!
  • For those of you that have access to the Samsung Theme Store, they have some great Halloween themes (Thanksgiving and Christmas have started to roll in too). My current favorite is Hello Pumpkin by Walk on Mars. I've become far too lazy to theme the old fashioned way since I've started using Samsung's store.
  • I threw on a Gengar wallpaper... Think that's seasonal enough.
  • Sure! Though you might consider grabbing the icons from one of the Pokémon themes to give that Gengar wallpaper a better look on your home screen.
  • OK, downloaded Whicons. It fits well, and I quite like it in general... But damn, you notice the icons it doesn't effect! Also makes stacked folders look odd because of transparency, but that's an easy fix. As well as the collection, nice work with the song parody lyrics as usual!
  • It's a gift. And while the shader on the unthemed icons isn't near as pretty as it could be, it works well for me since i use themed icons as special icona on each folder (I hate how the folder preview styles all look, so i replace them with a single icon, part of the reason I can't get used to Action Launcher is that it won't let me do that without invoking the Cover).
  • Need dark and evil!
  • You could buy a fake notch app and look like the village idiot XD
  • Need some Michael Myers thrown in there!
