Parasol Waddle Dee is a recurring enemy in the Kirby series, first appearing in Kirby's Adventure. Parasol Waddle Dee is a Waddle Dee who wields a Parasol, allowing it to float gently down through the air. If swallowed with its parasol, Kirby gains the Parasol ability. If attacked and not defeated, Parasol Waddle Dee can drop its parasol and become a regular Waddle Dee, while its parasol becomes a separate entity, either floating away, or becoming hostile in its own accord.

Parasol Waddle Dee is not always an enemy, however. In Kirby Super Star (Ultra), and Kirby Star Allies, Parasol Waddle Dee can be a Helper, and playable along with Kirby. Parasol Waddle Dee also appears as a playable fighter in Kirby: Battle Royale (there just called Waddle Dee).

Trophy Information
Name Image NTSC-U Description PAL Description
Parasol Waddle Dee
This citizen of Dream Land falls gracefully from the sky clutching a parasol. Waddle Dee itself is fairly harmless, but the parasol can deflect almost anything. Don't hurt yourself accidentally! Also, be careful if one releases its parasol—that floating umbrella can really sting! These little chaps from the Kirby series are really peaceful. In Smash Run, they use their parasols to float gently down to the ground. Their parasols will deflect almost anything, so you can use them as a trampoline, if you like! If a Waddle Dee lets go of its parasol, though, be careful - floating umbrellas are dangerous things!
