Do the different characters in Temple Run change the game in any way except visual appearance?

Do they have different skills, or is it all just visual changes?

No, they don't, they're just skins.

any reference ? – Chen Harel Feb 6 '12 at 17:05
There was an interview with the game's developers published in a printed newspaper in Israel about a month ago, in it there was a tips section where they mentioned this. I don't have the article scanned and couldn't find it online, though. – JohnoBoy Feb 6 '12 at 17:08

Yes: when you die, it changes the message you receive about your death.

If by "comments" you mean the messages you see when you die, that's hardly considered "gameplay", I still consider them "visual appearance" – JohnoBoy Mar 17 '12 at 19:32
This is really a comment, not an answer to the question. You can always comment on your own posts, and once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post. – Brant Aug 18 '12 at 16:38
