— King Doo Quest description in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe

King Doo is a Mid-Boss debuting in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. He is a large yellow Waddle Doo with a pronounced tuft of hair and shoes with tips that point upward.

As expected from a Waddle Doo, he can use a beam whip attack, which appears essentially identical to a regular Waddle Doo's (though obviously bigger). King Doo can use the beam whip in the air after a jump and also has the Wave Beam ability, firing a large blast of energy sideways across the field. He also has a non-beam attack, which involves simply charging across the screen. Once defeated, King Doo can be inhaled for the Beam ability.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

King Doo debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land as a Mid-Boss, behaving like a normal Waddle Dee but with additional moves such as charging at Kirby and using a Beam Whip mid-air. In Extra Mode, King Doo gains off-white skin and a deep red eye reminiscent of . In this form he gains the ability to turn while in attacking in midair, as well as the ability to fire up to three Wave Beams in succession. He also gains an attack similar to the Beam Blast, jumping and firing several medium-sized shots diagonally downwards.

His regular form attacks in a fixed order on loop as follows:

  • Wave Beam x3 [two shots fired between planes]
  • Beam Whip [mid-air]
  • Charge
  • Wave Beam x2

After that, he then attacks in this fixed order on loop as follows:

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe[edit]

King Doo appears three times in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, with many new methods of firing his beam laser, but despite this, the strategy to beat him is much the same.

Super Kirby Clash[edit]

King Doo's in-game appearance in Super Kirby Clash.

King Doo appears three times as an enemy encounter in Super Kirby Clash, behaving like he did in the previous game. Of these encounters, he is fought solo in only one Quest, with the other two having him paired up with other enemies: he is paired up with Mr. Frosty for Team First Contact and paired up with Hornhead and Miasmoros for Team Triple Threat.

Attacks[edit]

The following are all of King Doo's attacks in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe and Super Kirby Clash. Note that attack names are conjectural:

King Doo's attacks in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe and Super Kirby Clash  
Attack Description Variants
Charge King Doo starts running very fast, and won't stop until he hits the edge of the arena.
Beam Whip King Doo conjures and releases a large beam whip from his eye that moves downward. Further into the fight, he can do this in mid-air.
Wave Beam King Doo charges up, and then releases a large circular beam blast from his eye which travels quickly across the stage. Further into the fight, he can do this multiple times in succession, or may fire them into the background for them to come back and hit somewhere on the stage.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition, the internal filename for King Doo is called "Beholdoo", which is a play on "Beholder". In Kirby: Planet Robobot onwards, the file is renamed "Kingsdoo", which is closer to the final name.
