Cherry MX Pale Blue is a rare Cherry MX variant with a pale blue slider. The moniker is a misnomer as the slider is not paler in shade but a bluer hue.

No details are confirmed for certain. The only presently-available photo of the internals shows a reduced number of free spring turns (suggesting a heavier switch if the material and gauge are the same) as well as the same discoloured slider ramps as Cherry MX Dark Blue. The tip of slider's internal shaft is also truncated, as found in "vintage" Cherry MX "White" switches.

{It has a soft click similar to the modern Cherry MX White switch. It is also less tactile than the MX White, Blue or Green. The actuation force is light - similar to the 50g of modern Cherry MX Blues, however it has a heavier bottoming out force.}[Citation needed]

The presence in a Chicony KB-5191, the same keyboard as that where Aristotle Yellow appears to have been used, calls into question whether it is a real Cherry switch or strange parts assembly the same as Aristotle Yellow.

A switch with similar characteristics is found in the Copam K-457.
