    I'm making a game in MV for commercial purposes. I want to recolor some resources or even put some extra stuff in them, like wings in some sprites or battlers, am I allowed to do that?

    Defintely! You can edit the RTP resources as much as you want as long as you give credit to Kadokawa for the original resources.

    Yes you can surely do that for your own game.


    As metioned before, you have to give credit to everyone involved in making and publishing it, accordingly.


    You may use these edits, only for making a game using RPG Maker MV.


    You have to own a legit copy of RPG Maker MV to be licenced to do so.  Keeping it short, pirated copies are illegal 100% and do NOT grant you permission to do anything.


    You may not sell, or do ANYTHING else with these resources, as resources. A game can still be sold, as long as you pack it with the encryption provided by the bulit-in RPG Maker MV packer. 


    So to sum up, you may only use them for your own game, as long as you give proper credit.


    Keep it that way and you will be okay I guess.


    Maybe @Archeia  or @Lunarea can give you a more official reply on this if you want to. I tagged them to draw their attention.

    You are allowed to do that as long as it's RPG Maker only and you give proper accreditation.
