Gim is an enemy which debuted in Kirby Super Star. It is a robotic sphere with red feet, a blue baseball cap, exhaust pipes on its back, one green lens that serves as an eye, and a hole where the other eye would seem to go. It extends a hand from this hole, and uses the hand to swing a red yo-yo as a weapon.
Gim appears mainly in mechanized areas. If Kirby is not within range, it walks slowly toward him, attacking him with its fast yo-yo when it gets close. When Kirby swallows Gim, he gets the Yo-Yo ability. Changing the Yo-Yo ability into a Helper results in a Gim that has a blue hat and eye instead of green ones, which possesses all the abilities that Kirby does when using the Yo-Yo ability. If Kirby converts the Helper Gim into an object to re-swallow, it turns into a yo-yo.
Gim is playable in the Helper to Hero mode of Kirby Super Star Ultra. In this mode, it has a silver body, purple shoes and a red eye and a green cap. Gim is the only enemy to produce the Yo-yo ability when swallowed.
