Clay Kirby is a hidden fighter that appears in Super Smash Bros. Blitz representing the Kirby series. He debuted in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (2015) and is canonically Kirby in another style and universe but is referred to as Clay Kirby in this game. Clay Kirby after his world's colros were taken by the hands of Claycia, sets off to get them back accompanied by Eline who drew lines to help him progress.
Clay Kirby is colored and shaped like his flesh counterpart, but the similarities end there. Most of Clay Kirby's moves are similar to Kirby's makng him somewhat of a semiclone, but these moves are much slower, due to Clay Kirby's heavy metirial and have a lot of lag time. There are also a few of Clay Kirby's attacks that allow him to become a ball for a short time too.
Clay Kirby's main gimmick is the use of his standard special, line which summons Elin to create a rainbow line that can be made into any path and from any distance. These lines stay on the battlefield for a decent amount of time and if Clay Kirby turns into a ball via his down special he can ride on them. Projectiles also will move along the rainbow line making the use of these lines strategic.
As of statistics Clay Kirby being made of thick clay is fairly more heavy than Kirby and is not only the lightest heavyweight but also the smallest making him harder to hit than most heavyweights. However, Clay Kirby's speed is poor and laggy, especially his attacks making it hard to combo opponents. In air Clay Kirby is rather heavy making airel combat difficult but strong as almost all of his ariel attacks spike opponents. Jumping is also worse, dispite having six jumps only two of those jumps can be used for decent height, the rest are very short hops similar to Waddle Dee's in Rainbow Curse.
Clay Kirby's alternate style is known as Glass Blown, which makes him slightly lighter and gives him the abilty to puff up like the original Kirby for his jumps, but these jumps are still not as good as Kirby's. It also makes his areil game somewhat better as well. The only drawback however is the decrease in power and the loss in Ariel spiking.

WHile in use the player controls Elin who can move around rapidly and draw lines for a super charged Clay Kirby to follow. Weather the attack's time ends or Clay Kirby falls offstage, both will result in the final smash's end and Kirby will return to where he used the move. If Clay Kirby falls offstage, it wont count as an SD.
