Mt. Dedede (originally Mt. DeDeDe and also called Castle Dedede) is a mountain in Dream Land first seen in Kirby's Dream Land. In all of its appearances, it is portrayed as the location of the castle in which King Dedede lives.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Dream Land

In Kirby's Dream Land, Mt. Dedede is the name of the fifth and final stage. In this small stage, Kirby has to face all the previous bosses from the game (Whispy Woods, Lololo & Lalala, Kaboola and Kracko) again in any desired order by entering the door with the respective boss's picture on it. Before reaching each boss, however, Kirby must make his way through a small section of the level that boss was featured in, then touch a lingering copy of himself to make the door to the boss appear. Once all the bosses are defeated, Kirby is able to enter the picture of King Dedede in the middle of the room, starting a fight between with him, which takes place in a boxing ring.

In Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Mt. Dedede appears as the last stage of Spring Breeze, a remake of Kirby's Dream Land. Unlike in the original game, no Bosses have to be refought on Mt. Dedede. Instead, the stage consists of a small room containing a few enemies, each of which can provide Kirby with a Copy Ability, and a door that leads directly to the boss fight with Dedede. Like in Kirby's Dream Land, the fight takes place in a boxing ring, although it is considerably wider than in its first appearance. During the fight, several characters from the Mario franchise can be seen cheering in the audience, together with different enemies from the Kirby universe.

In Kirby Super Star Ultra, more of the castle is seen in The Revenge, where Kirby infiltrates it to once again stop King Dedede.

The last few stages of Prism Plains take place inside Castle Dedede. In this iteration, the castle looks a great deal like it does in the anime series.

Kirby's Epic Yarn

Main article: Castle Dedede (Epic Yarn)

Castle Dedede is the fourth stage in Dream Land. Here, it has been completely transformed into yarn by Yin-Yarn and filled with his minions. Kirby and Prince Fluff will need to traverse the castle before reaching the knitted sorcerer.

Kirby Star Allies

Main article: Clash at Castle Dedede

Mt Dedede appears in the intro cut-scene for Kirby Star Allies. Here, King Dedede and his Waddle Dees are relaxing when a dark heart lands at their feet. Tainted by its influence, King Dedede orders his Waddle Dees to steal as much food as they can and bring it to the castle, prompting Kirby to go and get it back.

Mt. Dedede is visited by Kirby and his allies at the end of the Dream Land level. It consists of a romp through the castle and ends with a fight with Dedede, who turns into a beefy form of himself halfway through the fight. Defeating him is necessary to move forward in the Story Mode, and also unlocks him as a Dream Friend.

Trivia

  • The music that plays in this stage would eventually become King Dedede's theme song. It would be remixed, expanded, and revamped several times over throughout the series.
