Big Waddle Dee is a Waddle Dee that is extra large. How much larger it is depends on the game it appears in, but it is at least large enough to be noticeable when compared to its normal counterpart. Apart from the size, there are no visual distinctions between this Waddle Dee and the normal ones. However, its increased size usually means that it has more Stamina and/or it takes longer to Inhale. It may also become a Penetrating Bullet on its own when spat out. Despite its size, Big Waddle Dee is no more a threat to Kirby than the normal ones.

Big Waddle Dees first appeared in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, where they were explicitly named as such. They appeared again with distinction in Kirby: Squeak Squad, serving the same purpose as before. There is also one larger Waddle Dee in Kirby's Epic Yarn, which appears in Castle Dedede and must be defeated to progress, but it is not distinguished as such by the Patch Plaza cast list. Yin-Yarn can also conjure them during his fight, and they will hurt Kirby if they fall on him. In all subsequent games in the series, Waddle Dees can come in various sizes, but they are still all just referred to as Waddle Dees. There is however, a larger Waddle Dee-like enemy called Grandy, but it is distinguished by its woolly body. As a final note, the first enemy in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe is a huge red Waddle Dee, but it is specifically known as Colossal Waddle Dee.
