He's Just A Pink Blob, But Kirby Sure Has Changed Over The Years

When Kirby debuted in 1992, he was a pink balloon thing on the original Game Boy. Now, 20 years later, he's still a pink balloon thing — but one that is occasionally made of yarn or clay.

Check out the pictures below to see exactly how he has changed across the main series. (Note: Spin-off titles, cross-overs and remakes are not included.)

      Yeah I am sure on the box for my original Game Boy Kirby Dreamland he was white too.

        that's because some countries didn't know what colour he was supposed to be

    Oldest Kirby games are still the best. Dreamland series and its type. Really couldn't get behind all the gimmicky titles that came after.
