Deppa[derived from Japanese][1] is a large enemy from Another Dimension encountered in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake, Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. It is only encountered in Another Dimension and in the new Magolor Epilogue: The Interdimensional Traveler extra mode in the remake, alongside its counterparts, the Darpas, Dippas, and Dupas.

Deppa is the largest of its brethren. It is a big reddish-purple landmine-shaped creature with three small feathers on its head, arranged in a crest shape. It wields an angry expression from its yellow eyes, a characteristic shared with higher-ranking Sphere Doomers.

This enemy is the strongest out of its group, and it is also the rarest one encountered. It has the ability to fire projectiles like the Dippa, but they only quickly travel in a straight line. These projectiles can damage Kirby and his friends if they make contact with one. These bullets can also be shot down to avoid getting hit. The Deppa always stays on the right side of the screen so it can fire projectiles. When it is defeated, it will shoot four spikes in right diagonals as a last resort. These, too, can be destroyed. Deppa also has the highest health of its group, so it can be a bit of trouble.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Return to Dream Land / Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe[edit]

Deppa is introduced in Kirby's Return to Dream Land as an enemy solely found in Another Dimension, only present in segments of the level that are not boss fights. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, Deppas make very uncommon appearances throughout Magolor Epilogue: The Interdimensional Traveler, only appearing in two regular stages. Despite such, this still marks the first time any player is able to interact with them without riding on Landia.

In the boss battle against the Master Crown, Deppas can be summoned through dimensional rifts created by the crown itself, and are souped up in terms of health. Because of this, said boss battle in The True Arena is also the only time Kirby is able to encounter Deppas on foot, and it is revealed there that they are classified as large enemies as they require using a Super Inhale to swallow.
