This article is about Waddle Doo from Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. For Waddle Doo from the video game series, see Waddle Doo.

Captain Waddle Doo is a supporting character from the anime Kirby: Right Back at Ya! Despite having no mouth, Waddle Doo has the ability to speak and serves as the captain of the guard for Castle Dedede. He commands the Waddle Dees in the castle and is able to call upon them at any time. Despite this, Waddle Doo is not directly related to the Waddle Dees, and does not know how many are in the castle. He has a short sword strapped to his waist at all times, though he seldom uses it.

In the Japanese version of the anime, his voice is high-pitched, while in the English version, his voice is quite deep, with a stereotypical Brooklyn accent.

Appearance[edit]

Captain Waddle Doo looks very similar to the in-game members of his species, with an orange body, one large eye, and two strands of hair above his eye.

Unlike most Waddle Doos, Captain Waddle Doo has a light orange body and purple feet. Because no other Waddle Doos are seen in the anime, it is unknown if they all are like that in the anime or that color scheme is exclusive to Captain Waddle Doo.

Personality[edit]

Captain Waddle Doo is very curt and studious, particularly when it comes to commanding the Waddle Dees and taking orders from King Dedede and Escargoon. Regardless of the nature of the orders he receives, he does not carry the same level of hatred toward Kirby and the people of Cappy Town as his masters do, and is willing to help them with whatever they need so long as it does not conflict with his orders. In Tourist Trap, he is even seen helping Kirby defeat a monster by instructing the tourists to throw their ice at him so he can gain the Ice Copy Ability. The only conditions under which Captain Waddle Doo may refuse an order from the king is if said order would lead directly to the Waddle Dees' harm.
