White Kirby (called Gray Kirby in Kirby Battle Royale) is a member of Kirby's species that is playable in some of the Kirby games. In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror it was available via Spray Paint, where it was called "Snow" and was unlockable in the collection room. Kirby has a white body and red feet when used. Snow also appeared in the Kirby: Squeak Squad collection room, along with a new Spray Paint color, white, which turns Kirby completely white. The Ghost ability also turns him a shade of white (although it appears to be a very light blue in water, unlike the white Spray Paint color). He is also similar to the gray Kirby in the Super Smash Bros. series, although he's not white, but almost the same in appearance. Kirby's white palette in Kirby Air Ride bears some similarity to White Kirby, although it resembles more like the gray Kirby in the Super Smash Bros. series.
More challenging is obtaining it in Kirby Air Ride. It must be obtained separately in each mode: In Air Ride by completing 2 Laps in Celestial Valley in under 2 minutes and 20 seconds, in Top Ride by beating racer #2 by 5 seconds in Metal, and in City Trial by obtaining both Dragoon and Hydra in the same match.
In Kirby Super Star, he appears as white when he transforms into Plasma Kirby, but he later is exchanged from white to green in Kirby Super Star Ultra when transforming into Plasma Kirby. Though Plasma doesn't turn him white anymore, Mirror turns Kirby white in Kirby Super Star Ultra.
White Kirby also appears in the Super Smash Bros. series, as an alternate color for Kirby. It has the same appearance as Kirby Air Ride, with gray feet and blushes, and a white body. However, it first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee, a few years before Kirby Air Ride, so it could be said that it was based off Super Smash Bros. Melee. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the palette swap has gray feet instead of black ones. It never appeared in Super Smash Bros., since that game only allowed four colors for most characters.
White Kirby appears as a color palette for Kirby in Kirby: Triple Deluxe’s Kirby Fighters sub-game as well as Kirby Fighters Deluxe, with a very slight greenish tint, referencing the Game Boy's green colored screen.
- The US version of Kirby's Dream Land depicted Kirby as white by basing it on his sprite's color on the Game Boy screen, due to confusion during the localization process. This is more noticable on his health bar.
- Kirby's white palette swap in Super Smash Bros. Melee is actually his monochrome color scheme from his first games.
- Kirby's gray palette swap in Super Smash Bros. Brawl is also his monochrome color, but more intact. In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and Kirby: Squeak Squad, a spray paint is available that changes his colors to chalk.
