Kirby is known for taking on some pretty cool forms, and Kirby's Epic Yarn is no exception. These are the top transformations that the pink hero can take while exploring Patch Land.

    Top 3 Regular Transformations in Kirby's Epic Yarn 

    One of the main draws in Kirby games is the ability to take on countless different forms. In Kirby’s Epic Yarn, the titular hero can’t suck up enemies to steal their powers, but he can still transform into a number of different objects. Kirby transformations are split up into two categories: special forms and regular forms. Special forms require the pink hero (or his partner Prince Fluff) to enter portals in order to transform. Regular Kirby transformations, however, can be triggered by performing certain actions within the game's many levels. Let’s take a look at the best regular forms in Kirby’s Epic Yarn.

    Car Kirby

    Car Kirby 

    Sure, Car Kirby is just the form that the pink hero takes while dashing, but it’s impossible to deny the fact that the automobile version of the round space warrior is just plain charming. After seeing Kirby turn into a car, I never want him to go back to just dashing in his normal state. Nintendo, keep Car Kirby around as a permanent staple of the franchise. It’s just too great to get rid of.

    Sleigh Kirby

    Sleigh Kirby is a modified version of Car Kirby that’s exclusive to the ice world in Kirby’s latest platforming adventure. While dashing, Kirby takes on the form of a sleigh and can do things he can’t whilst in his car form. He speeds up rapidly when going downhill and can travel far distances after hitting jumps off of ramps and edges, which can sometimes be useful in accessing areas with hidden items. In co-op mode, one player can transform his or her character while the other rides merrily along atop the sleigh. That’s just sweet!

    Snake Kirby

    Snake Kirby Though “Worm Kirby” would probably be a more suitable name for this transformation, I won’t get too nitpicky about names here. Kirby takes on his Snake form after entering a narrow tunnel. The pink puffball may not be able to enter thin areas in his regular form, but he is made of yarn here, so all he has to do is unthread and travel right through the tight tunnels. Snake Kirby can explore multifaceted tunnel systems to get to secret areas or simply progress through the levels. But watch out. There are snake-like enemies waiting in these tunnels, and they’ll take a bite out of Kirby and Prince Fluff if they have the chance to do so.

    While Kirby’s special transformations are far more impressive than his regular transformations, there’s a lot to be said about the hero’s normal forms. All of the normal transformations in Kirby’s Epic Yarn are charming, adorable, and awesome; and the Car, Sleigh, and Snake forms are among the coolest in the game.
