Waddle Dees are a species in the Kirby franchise. They are similar to Goombas, in that they are the most common and weakest enemies to come across. Waddle Dees' first Super Smash Bros.-related appearance is in Super Smash Bros. Melee, in which they make a cameo as a trophy.

Since his fighter debut in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, King Dedede's entrance shows four Waddle Dees carrying his throne on the stage.


Super Smash Bros.[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Waddle Dees are featured in one of King Dedede's attacks, Waddle Dee Toss, in which King Dedede tosses a Waddle Dee at his opponent, and after it hits, the Waddle Dees continue to walk around the stage. Their relative, Waddle Doos, may also appear during this attack. This attack was removed in subsequent Super Smash Bros. titles.

Two Waddle Dee stickers appear in the game, and they depict its normal and ball form respectively. One of them depicts its artwork from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. The other sticker is titled Waddle Dee Ball, and it shows its Kirby: Canvas Curse artwork, which depicts Waddle Dee in its ball form.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, both Waddle Dees and Parasol Waddle Dees appear as enemies in Smash Run. When a Parasol Waddle Dee drops its parasol, it falls to the ground and becomes a regular Waddle Dee.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there is a spirit of Waddle Dee.

Super Smash Bros. Melee trophy[edit]

Waddle Dee SSBM Trophy Waddle Dee.png Kirby's Dream Land
Many delicate creatures like this one inhabit Dream Land. They generally live carefree lives and have never considered themselves to be followers of King Dedede. Waddle Dees are innocent and generally harmless to man and beast. While they have virtually no offensive or defensive power, they'll sometimes try to wield a parasol.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl trophy[edit]

NDS SSBB graphic.png Kirby: Squeak Squad
A carefree creature that wanders the hills and dales of Dream Land. Basically harmless to creatures great and small, Waddle Dees sometimes use parasols to float down through the skies. If Kirby swallows a parasol, he'll get one he can use to float or ward off enemy attacks. On the other hand, Kirby can't copy anything by swallowing Waddle Dees themselves.
