This article is about the Waddle Dee who comments on the Colosseum cups and appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. For Waddle Dees in a general context, see Waddle Dee.
Wwwwwelcome to the Colosseum! If you're here to enter a tournament, you came to the right spot!
— Commentator Waddle Dee, in Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Commentator Waddle Dee is a Waddle Dee who runs the Colosseum in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. He has the same general look as any other Waddle Dee, but is distinguished by his thick-rimmed blue glasses, yellow bow tie, and matching microphone (which strongly resembles Walky). He first appears once Kirby finishes Wondaria Remains and the location is built, offering to let him fight in Meta Knight Cup, and later in The Ultimate Cup and The Ultimate Cup Z.

During the fights, as well as in the rest area, Commentator Waddle Dee comments on Kirby's performance, except in The Ultimate Cup Z where, due to it taking place in another realm, his voice can only reach Kirby in-between fights while he is in the rest area. He also encourages Kirby to try again when he fails, and reports his record when he succeeds.
