Yellow Kirby is a Kirby that appears in a handful of Kirby games. He was based on the original plan that Kirby would be yellow (as was envisioned by Shigeru Miyamoto). In Kirby & the Amazing Mirror and Kirby: Squeak Squad the yellow spray paint makes Kirby look like this. Otherwise, he appears in sub-games and the Super Smash Bros. series as an alternate color for Kirby. In multiplayer, Yellow Kirby is usually controlled by player two.
As a separate being from Kirby, Yellow Kirby tends to be the most clumsy of the others. This is shown in artwork for some games.
