Kirby's color was the cause of an argument at Nintendo. Masahiro Sakurai wished for Kirby to be pink, while Miyamoto wanted him to be yellow. Eventually, Kirby's yellow color would be used in later games, such as Kirby's Super Star as an alternate color for additional Kirbys while pink would be Kirby's main color.

First you draw a circle,
Then you dot the eyes,
Add a great big smile,
And presto, it's Kirby!

The last stage of the Rainbow Resort level is a homage to the first Kirby game; Kirby's Dream Land. Since that was a Game Boy game the level only uses a monochrome palette and it features every type of level found in that game.
