Yariko is a child-like, spear-throwing enemy in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards that makes its appearances chucking rhythmic projectiles at Kirby from above. Physically, it is a very short foe with a large clump of orange hair, not to mention a small loin cloth draped about its waist. Yariko tends to throw its spears at Kirby up until it is at his eye level, upon which it can then be defeated quite easily; however, Yariko does not yield a copy ability when ingested, despite its Needle-like inclinations. Their design is similar to Yaban.
Yariko also appears on the 69th Enemy Info Card.
Yariko can be found in the following levels and stages:
