Puppet Waddle Dee[Japanese title], also known as Puppet Dee[from internal data], is an enemy that debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Puppet Waddle Dee is actually three regular Waddle Dees in a larger paper-like Waddle Dee costume. The costume gives the Waddle Dees more durability. When defeated, the costume explodes and the three Waddle Dees go flying, returning to regular enemies. A robotic, more formidable (albeit slower) version of this enemy appearing in Halcandra is the Armor Dee.

While Puppet Waddle Dee will normally split into three Waddle Dees when broken, it can be swallowed whole using a Super Inhale. In Kirby Star Allies, Puppet Waddle Dee is weak against Fire/Sizzle-based attacks, burning up immediately and the three Waddle Dees inside instantly defeated.

It's costume looks like a giant Waddle Dee, but the craftsmanship is shoddy, with seams, stitches and tape visible on the outside. Little balls connected to sticks poke out of the sides to look like arms. Four feet stick out the bottom, presumably representing two out of the three Waddle Dees inside. The eyes on the puppet are holes, which presumably let the third Waddle Dee see out of the suit.

Puppet Waddle Dee attacks by moving slowly toward Kirby and hitting him by contact, or by holding still, blocking off a walkway. When defeated, the puppet shell breaks, tossing out the three Waddle Dees that were inside, who will then proceed to waddle about as usual once they collect themselves.
