Dedede Clone is a Boss fought in Kirby: Planet Robobot, appearing as the boss of Rhythm Route. It was created by the Haltmann Works Company using King Dedede's D.N.A., and filled with an urge to destroy Kirby.

Game Appearances[edit]

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Dedede Clone first appears at the end of the Rhythm Route, appearing as a small purple blob inside a test tube held by Susie. Susie introduces it to Kirby, giving it the full designation Model #D-0030 Dedede Clone. She unleashes the clone from its test tube and gets away using her helicopter drone, leaving the clone to deal with Kirby.

Dedede Clone 2.0 sports a pale yellow coloration, and appears in Meta Knightmare Returns, as well as The True Arena. It has the ability to fire energy blasts from its hammer.

Boss Fight[edit]

The following lists all of Dedede Clone's attacks in Kirby: Planet Robobot. Attacks in italics are only used by Dedede Clone 2.0.

Energy Storm

When Dedede Clone is knocked down to half health, it momentarily turns back into goo, then reforms into three smaller Dedede clones. These clones can be individually stunned, turning back into goo for a short time.

The three split clones sweep the stage with their hammers in Phase 2 of the fight.
Attacks - Phase 2
Attack Description
Hammer Farmer
The clones all swing their hammers in unison, moving across the stage, like how a farmer harvests with a sickle. On completion, the hammers release shockwaves, which produce stars when they dissipate. In Story Mode, the clones all start with this attack in phase 2.
Super Dedede Jump
The clones hop into the air and attempt to pounce Kirby, leaving stars on impact.

Synchronized Head Slide
The clones dive onto the ground in a line, covering much of the stage. They then turn and slide across the ground again.

Once Dedede Clone is defeated, it collapses into three individual goo puddles. As the platform they were standing on then reaches the top of the building, a large mech bearing Dedede's colors appears from the hatch in the center, and the clones hop on it, becoming Dedede Clones & D3. (The details of that fight are on their own separate page.)
