- “Say hello to Mr. Crayon. Sometimes he's blue and sometimes he's yellow. This doesn't mean he's sad or chicken, but indicates either a Color Bar or Stamp Bar.”

Enlarged sprite of Mr. Crayon in Mario Paint
|First appearance||Mario Paint (1992)|
|Latest appearance||WarioWare: D.I.Y. (2010)|
Mr. Crayon is a non-speaking icon in Mario Paint, taking the form of the tip of a crayon but with arms, legs, a mouth, and eyes. He appears in the top right of the Art mode; clicking on him, the player can cycle through the different colors and stamps that the game offers, either forwards or backwards. He either takes a light blue form or a yellow form; blue denotes that the player is in the colors portion of the menu, and yellow represents that the player is in the stamps (preexisting sprites) part of the menu. He has a unique pose for every page, with 13 poses total (six in blue, seven in yellow). If the game is left untouched for a little while, he will dance until the player performs an input again.
