— Sailor Waddle Dee in Revenge of Meta Knight - Chapter 1, Kirby Super Star Ultra
Sailor Waddle Dee is a minor character who first appeared in Kirby Super Star (and later in its remake) in Revenge of Meta Knight. He is a Waddle Dee who wears a sailor's cap. Sailor Waddle Dee never directly interacts with Kirby, and is usually only present through his dialogue in Revenge of Meta Knight, or in the background in his other appearances.
Kirby Super Star / Kirby Super Star Ultra
Sailor Waddle Dee first appears in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra, where he is one of the characters exchanging dialogue with the others during gameplay in Revenge of Meta Knight. His role is a more introspective, in contrast with the other characters trying to stop Kirby from boarding and destroying the Halberd. He is sometimes absent-minded, such as when he accidentally reveals the secret to destroying the Reactor.
Sailor Waddle Dee is not seen in the stages proper. Additionally, he has the least amount of dialogue of the Halberd crew. However, he is the last one to stay when the other Meta-Knights abandon ship; he was the only witness to Meta Knight's duel with Kirby. While his fate is unclear, it is presumed that he safely escaped before the Halberd sank into the ocean.
