|Collect Fuse Beads as you rumble and stumble your way to the goal. Watch out for Boom Blocks along the way!|
— In-game description of Dedede Gogogo.
Dedede Gogogo tasks him with moving through a fast-paced course as quickly as possible while collecting Fuse Beads and Luminas, defeating enemies, and avoiding hazards. At the end of a course, the player will be given a score and a rank depending on how many points were earned. It is also possible to obtain Fuse Bead Mats in this game.
Each course gives King Dedede one minute and 30 seconds to reach the end. Running out of time will force Dedede to retire.
- Each Fuse Bead is worth one point.
- Luminas are worth 50 points each.
- Each whole second remaining is worth 10 points (centiseconds are not counted)
Defeating enemies, while not worth anything on their own, will cause them to drop beads.
While moving, King Dedede has access to four different techniques to help him move through the course. These are as follows:
- Dash - + Control Pad or Circle Pad
- Jump - A
- Giant Dedede Swing - B
- Head Slide - ↓ on + Control Pad or Circle Pad
