Parasol Waddle Doos are variants of Waddle Doos who hold a Parasol, allowing them to float and sway gently through the air. If inhaled with its parasol, Kirby gains the Parasol ability. If attacked and not defeated, a Parasol Waddle Doo will drop its Parasol and become a regular Waddle Doo, while its parasol becomes a separate entity, either floating away, or becoming hostile in its own accord.
