Yuki is a Mid-Boss appearing in Kirby's Dream Land 3. It is a large, round mass of snow that thins towards the top, giving it a campanulate shape. Its only features are two round, black eyes located on its upper part, resembling the coal eyes of a snowman. When it is hurt, a small, round mouth becomes visible below them.

Apart from the final stage of Iceberg, which includes a rematch with all of the game's Mid-Bosses, Yuki is only encountered in the fourth stage of the same level. In battle, it possesses a triad of different attacks: It is able to perform three large jumps in a row, creating two small snowballs that can be inhaled and spat back whenever it lands, toss three copies of its head at Kirby or slide across the ground in a straight line, temporarily losing its head when it rams a wall. Any attack that results in the loss of Yuki's head briefly renders it invulnerable until it grows a new one. The heads remain frozen in place wherever they land for a few seconds before vanishing; during this period, they can be inhaled, making it possible to spit them back at the Mid-Boss.

A total of six objects must be spat at Yuki to beat it. Alternatively, any Copy Ability may be used against it, each of which removes one quarter of its total health with every hit. Inhaling and swallowing the opponent after its defeat grants Kirby the Ice ability.
