Bandana Waddle Dee's Dream Friend jingle in Kirby Star Allies

 This box: view  talk  edit 

Bandana Waddle Dee, abbreviated B.W. Dee and nicknamed Bandana Dee[1] (otherwise known as Red Waddle Dee or simply Waddle Dee) is a major protagonist and supporting character in the Kirby series. He is a Waddle Dee with a blue bandana. His weapon of choice is usually a spear, but sometimes he wields a parasol. Originally shown to be King Dedede's most loyal subject, he is now shown to be Kirby's closest friend and sometimes even assists him in battling the king.

Bandana Waddle Dee debuted in Kirby Super Star as the first opponent in Megaton Punch. His first major role was in Kirby Super Star Ultra, as the secondary antagonist of Revenge of the King. After this, he appeared as one of the four playable protagonists of Kirby's Return to Dream Land, and has starred in nearly every game in the Kirby series since.

Additionally, a similar Waddle Dee character appeared as a supporting character in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. While several hints have been made that might suggest the two are the same character, this has not been confirmed.

Physical appearance[edit]

Bandana Waddle Dee, just like other Waddle Dees, is a round orange creature with a peach circle in it, where the eyes and most of the rest of its body are located. He has also two yellow feet and small stubby arms. What differentiates him from others of his kind, however, is his blue bandana and choice of weapon, the spear. In Kirby Battle Royale, he uses a blue parasol with a star on top of it.


Bandana Waddle Dee is often portrayed as cheerful, as he often waves at Kirby and cheers him by giving him Assist Stars in both Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby: Planet Robobot. He is also shown to be very determined but also coward in games such as Kirby Super Star and its remake, where in the sub-game Revenge of the King he got more and more scared every time Kirby defeated someone, but even after being spared of fighting Kirby by his king, he still battled him (and failed), what also shows his intense loyalty to King Dedede. In Kirby Battle Royale, Bandana Waddle Dee showed an intense fear before battling Meta Knight and King Dedede but even then still defeated both due to his determination but also trust in Kirby.

Kirby Super Star / Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

Waddle Dee made his debut as a minor appearance in Megaton Punch the Sub-Game, being the first opponent Kirby faces. Waddle Dee starts the battle by winking, waving if he wins, and fainting if he loses.

MidbossdeeSSU.pngKirby Super Star Ultra was Waddle Dee's first major appearance. He appears only in two modes: The Arena and Revenge of the King.

In The Arena, he replaces the regular Waddle Dee that appears as a joke Mid-Boss in the original Kirby Super Star. He fills a similar role as the original "mid-boss", but, unlike the latter, can move around.

Waddle Dee is battled in Level 5: The Revenge in Revenge of the King, and also has a dialogue with the King concerning Kirby and Mid-Bosses. He can be inhaled but provides no Copy Ability. He is exactly the same as a regular Waddle Dee, except has more HP and has a different sprite.

Kirby Mass Attack[edit]

Waddle Dee makes a cameo in the Meta Knight battle of the Strato Patrol EOS sub-game. He is seen cheering for him alongside Sailor Waddle Dee from Revenge of Meta Knight.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

Artwork of Waddle Dee from Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Waddle Dee got an even bigger role in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, this time as a playable character.

Waddle Dee can use his spear to attack, identically to the way Spear Kirby can. Waddle Dee has the same 40 HP as Kirby. Unlike Kirby, Meta Knight, or King Dedede, Waddle Dee doesn't fly, but he can make Infinity Jumps to keep up.

Kirby's Dream Collection[edit]

Waddle Dee appears during the intro cinematic for the game, to present the title screen along with King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Kirby.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

Bandana Waddle Dee as he appears in Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Bandana Waddle Dee appears in stages to give Kirby healing items to store on the player's touch screen. These items appear in Assist Stars. He usually gives them prior to boss fights or mid-boss fights. If the player has streetpassed with someone before they meet Bandana Waddle Dee, he will give better items. These include more powerful healing items, such as Energy Drinks or Maxim Tomatoes, and even Keychains. If the player has streetpassed with that person multiple times, the quality of the healing items get even better, and Bandana Waddle Dee may even throw a Rare Keychain to Kirby.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse[edit]

Up to three different colored Waddle Dees are playable in this game and can assist Kirby by carrying him and tossing him, as well as spearing enemies that get in the way. They are controlled normally, unlike Kirby, who remains in ball form and must follow the stylus ropes.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Bandana Waddle Dee performs the same function here as in Triple Deluxe, offering Kirby food items he can store at various points in the stages. Using Streetpass will improve the quality of the items as in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.

Bandana Waddle Dee also appears as several stickers, including a doodle.

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe / Super Kirby Clash[edit]

Bandana Waddle Dee can be found in the village, overseeing the Gem Apple Tree. He is the first character that Kirby talks to in the game. He explains the basics of the village, as well as the situation. From that point onward, he oversees Gem Apple harvesting, giving Kirby the yield every time it's ready. He assumes the role again in Super Kirby Clash.

Kirby Battle Royale[edit]

A still from the introduction, as Kirby bumps into Bandana Waddle Dee.

Bandana Waddle Dee serves a prominent role in the single-player mode, Dedede's Cake Royale. Kirby meets up with him on the way to the arena, finding him exhausted, having 'walked all night long' to get there. As such, Kirby agrees to carry him for a while down the trail. After Kirby deals with an enemy ambush, including another blue Kirby, the Warp Star appears to take them both to the arena.

From here on, Bandana Waddle Dee serves as an ally to Kirby in team matches. Unlike in previous incarnations, Bandana Dee uses a Parasol instead of a Spear.

While the player cannot play as Bandana Waddle Dee, a hatless Waddle Dee is available who plays much the same.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

In Kirby Star Allies, Bandana Waddle Dee appears as the first available Dream Friend, recruitable from a Dream Palace without the need to unlock him. His moveset appears to be largely the same as it was in Kirby's Return to Dream Land but with a few tweaks, including the ability to have his spear receive elemental powers from allies, and a new attack, Ground Thrust (added in Version 4.0.0). He has the same health as Kirby. Since Kirby cannot obtain the Spear ability in this title, Bandana Waddle Dee is the only user of this Copy Ability (Zan Partizanne of The Three Mage-Sisters, the Dream Friend, has a different style of spear combat).

In Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!, Bandana Waddle Dee's title screen features his Megaton Punch sprites from Kirby Super Star, his 3D artworks from modern titles, and his doodle sticker from Kirby: Planet Robobot (from Version 2.0.0 onward). His Dream Friend jingle is based on the Disc Channel music from Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Bandana Waddle Dee appears as a Primary Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. which can only be obtained by enhancing Waddle Dee's Spirit.

Bandana Waddle Dee's Spirit is Neutral-type, ranked ★★★ Ace, has 3 slots, and the skill of Battering Items ↑, which refers to his weapon of choice. His level 1 stats are 1,808 attack and 1,230 defense, and his level 99 stats are 5,424 attack and 3,692 defense.

Kirby Fighters 2[edit]

Bandana Waddle Dee appears as a playable character in Kirby Fighters 2, using his same moveset from Star Allies and thus acting as a substitute for the Spear ability. He is the only Buddy available from the start. Interestingly, in this game the ribbon tied around his spear is colored yellow, while in previous games it was an orange-red shade.

  • "We have to battle copies of Kirby?!"
  • "Kirby, you up for taking on all these other Kirbys? I mean, there is a cake at stake. The tastiest cake ever... Then let's do this! We'll get that cake no matter what!"
  • "I can't wait for our first battle in Dedede's Cake Royale!"
  • "That looks like the place where we need to check in. Let's head over there."
  • "You won your battle! I won mine, too. Whew, barely! Some of these battles have us go solo, but some are team battles! When you do team battles, can I be your partner, Kirby? Yay! Thanks! OK! Let's battle our way to the top of the championship!"
  • "I'll keep doing my best in our Team Battles, no matter what!"
  • "Hey! I bet that blue Kirby in the woods came from that printer!"
  • "You've hit the maximum points for this league, Kirby! So now we can try out for the next league with the Qualifier Battle!"
  • "Looks like all we need to do is head through those doors. It's a lot of pressure, I know... But we'd better head in and see what we can do!"
  • "We did it! We battled our way into the Bronze League! You're really great at this, Kirby. I'll keep doing my best too! Hope I can keep up with you. I bet it's going to get harder though."

  • "Mmm... That cake... My tummy's rumbling just thinking about it!"
  • "I'd like to be interviewed too..."
  • "I think it's fun to play in leagues we've already been in."
  • "You can earn a lot of points in League Battles... But clearing each and every one is really a huge accomplishment!"
  • "How many League Points have you gotten, Kirby? You hit the maximum? Hey, I just got there too. Then let's get to our Qualifier Battles. I bet we'll do great!"
  • "We made it to the Gold League, Kirby. We did it!"
  • "Meh... Meh... META KNIGHT?! You're competing too?!"
  • "A battle against Meta Knight? Sounds intense..."
  • "Don't underestimate Meta Knight, Kirby. He's one tough cookie."
  • "Once you hit the Gold League, you'll REALLY get more fans."
  • "If you’re having trouble with a battle, try a different ability."
  • "It's hard to rack up points once you get to the Gold League, right? But chances are we're going to have to go up against Meta Knight. We'll probably be facing him in the Qualifier Battle."
  • "I definitely wouldn't want to go up against Meta Knight alone. Luckily, I'll have you there with me. We'll take on the whole league, Meta Knight included!"
  • "In order to beat Meta Knight, we need to bring our A game!"
  • "We both maxed out our League Points, Kirby! Let's head into our Qualifier Battle! This one's in the bag, Kirby!"
  • "Meta Knight! I knew we'd face you in the Qualifier Battle!"
  • "A showdown with Meta Knight... It's kind of weird, but... ...I'm not scared. Sure, Meta Knight is tough. But with you by my side, I'm not worried at all! LET'S GOOOOOO!"
  • "We made it to the Platinum League, Kirby! I can't believe it! Even if it was a fluke... WE BEAT META KNIIIIIIIGHT!"
  • "Meta Knight was pretty tough, huh?"
  • "I've been worried this whole time that I've held you back, Kirby. But thanks for letting me join you in battle anyway! Because we made it to the final league! Now, let's claim the championship and pig out on tasty cake!"
  • "I think everyone's seeing us in a different light now!"
  • "I'll need to give a speech if we beat this league and the tourney! But I guess I'm getting a bit ahead of myself there."
  • "Battles in the final league are really different and intense!"
  • "We've gotten past the halfway point for this league. The final challenge for this league will be the Championship Battle. But I wonder who we'll be fighting in that battle..."
  • "I mean, our rival could be anyone in the Championship Battle. But I guess we have a lot of League Battles left before then!"
  • "Our Championship Battle isn't too far off now! That super-tasty, extra-deluxe, gigantic cake is nearly ours!"
  • "Finally! The Championship Battle! You know what happens if we win this, right? Cake, cake, cake!"
  • "Y-Your Majesty?"
  • "Huh? He can't mean..."
  • "Ah, what's the point now? He'll never let us win the tournament. You're right, Kirby. We can't give up now. We've come too far! Then let's head through those doors soon! It's time for our final battle!"
  • "We did it! We really did it! We're the champions! Can you believe it, Kirby? We fought side by side through all those different kinds of battles. Thank you, Kirby! Now for our prize..that amazing extra-deluxe cake!"
  • "But we won fair and square, Your Majesty!"
  • "But that's not fair!"
  • "That was spectacular, Kirby! I knew you had it in you. Finally, victory!"
  • "Wh-what now, Your Majesty?"

  • "We don't know what to do!"
  • "Can you stop the attack and save our kingdom?"
  • "Tilt ↑ to check the Quest Board to you left. Your team can set out from there."
  • "Now get on your way...and be careful!"

  • "Welcome back, Kirby!"
  • "Huh. Looks like there are more types of new quests..."
  • "They're called Party Quests, and they can be played alone or with other people!"
  • "Check 'em out on the Quest Board."
  • "Welcome back, Kirby! Good job clearing that ordeal!"
  • "I'm impressed you were able to defeat an enemy like that. I'd've been shaking too much to hold a weapon!"
  • "I guess that's why you're the adventurer. Speaking of which..."
  • "Have you rung the Adventurer Bell here in the village to call other adventurers yet?"
  • "I hear they'll fight alongside you in quests, and even bring you gifts, so you should definitely give it a try!"
  • "Welcome back, Kirby! Good job clearing that ordeal!"

  • "It looks like there are new quests...but you might want to raise your level before trying them out"
  • "Welcome back, Kirby! Good job clearing that ordeal!"
  • "Looks like the time has finally come to face Parallel Nightmare, the villain behind all this!"
  • "I' a bad feeling about it, Kirby."
  • "Be sure you come back to us!"
  • "Hi again, Kirby! Welcome to Castle Village!"
  • "Being here sure brings back memories, huh?"
  • "Oh, never mind about that..."
  • "Apparently the caped man was seen somewhere near this village."
  • "Who knows what trouble he's up to even now? Better be careful as you go after him, Kirby!"

  • "Welcome back, Kirby! Good job clearing that ordeal!"
  • "I think the time has finally come to put an end to Parallel Nightmare, the villain behind all this!"
  • "I have faith that you can beat Parallel Nightmare, but..."
  • "I can’t help but think that it’s going to be tougher than any of your battles so far."
  • "I’ a really bad feeling about this, to be honest."
  • "Please be careful out there."
  • "I’ll be waiting with everyone else here in the village for your return!"
  • "Welcome back, Kirby! You didn't get hurt, did you?"
  • "I can't believe such a terrifying enemy would show up to our sleepy village!"
  • "This kingdom used to be so peaceful..."
  • "But I truly believe that you will save the Dream Kingdom."
  • "Just make sure you come back to us in one piece!"
  • "Kirby, you made it back!"
  • "The caped wizard is gone, and peace is finally, truly restored to the land!"
  • "You faced so many hardships. I know it wasn't easy..."
  • "After all the battles you fought for the people of this kingdom, you have my gratitude and my respect."
  • "Your deeds will surely go down in history. No, they'll become legends!"
  • "For all you've done, I truly thank you!"
  • "Oh, wait! Now that I think about it..."
  • "Did you know that new Party Quests have been added?"
  • "If you're looking for even bigger challenges, maybe you could take them on?"
  • "I'm sure you'll overcome them!"
  • "I'm rooting for you, Kirby!"
  • "Welcome back, Kirby! Congrats on clearing that ordeal!"
  • "Defeating an enemy as powerful as that... You really are something else!"
  • "Oh yeah, it looks like there are more new quests! Be sure to level up and try them!"
  • "Welcome back, Kirby! Congrats on clearing that ordeal!"
  • "I can't believe you were able to defeat such a powerful enemy—you're just amazing!"

  • "Welcome back, Kirby! Congrats on clearing that ordeal!"
  • "I'm incredibly impressed to see how strong you've become."
  • "And that's good, because...the hardest quest of all has been posted."
  • "This is the real final, decisive battle. Be sure you come back to us, Kirby!"
  • "Woah! Welcome back, Kirby!"
  • "I'm so relieved you made it back safe!"
  • "You beat the ancient hero, strongest warrior in the galaxy! I guess that makes you the strongest now!
  • "Do you think, maybe, in some far-flung future, the ancient hero might somehow come back?"
  • "Well, if he did, I'll bet some young person like you would just step up and save the world again!"
  • "Thanks SO much for everything you've done, Super Team Kirby!"
  • "Get started by tilting ↑ in front of the Quest Board!"
