Spear Waddle Dee is an enemy encountered infrequently in the Kirby series. They are Waddle Dees who carry Spears, though they do not grant the Spear ability when swallowed (as they have yet to appear in a title where Kirby can use the Spear ability). Despite this pointy implement in their hands, Spear Waddle Dees are not too much more threatening than standard ones, as most don't seem to know how to use it.

Waddle Dees carrying spears were first seen in the anime; Kirby: Right Back At Ya!, specifically as guards for King Dedede. This eventually carried over to their first appearance in the video game series, in Kirby: Canvas Curse.

Game appearances

Kirby: Canvas Curse

Spear Waddle Dee debuts in this title, and can be seen among regular Waddle Dees in various places. They will attempt to toss their spears at Kirby, but cannot throw them very far. As such, they are more dangerous from above than in any other direction.

Kirby Super Star Ultra


Spear Waddle Dee appears in this title, specifically in Revenge of the King, in the levels Crash Clouds and The Revenge. Spear Waddle Dees can be seen patrolling the halls of the castle with their spears aimed either forward or upward. All this really succeeds in doing, however, is extending their reach somewhat, as they do not know how to thrust with the spears. Some Parasol Waddle Dees can also be seen with spears.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

While not appearing as an enemy proper in this title, Waddle Dees carrying spears can be seen in the opening cut-scene, attempting to guard King Dedede from Taranza's magic.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Spear Waddle Dees make an appearance in Kirby 3D Rumble. They stand in place, and attempt to toss their spears at Kirby, creating Recoil Stars where the spears land. They are further distinguished from standard Waddle Dees by their yellow fur.

Spear Waddle Dees, along with Sectra Dee variants, can also be seen in the standalone version of this sub-game, Kirby's Blowout Blast.

Kirby: Battle Royale

A special variant of Spear Waddle Dee exists in this title, called Soldier Waddle Dee. While they are not playable, they can be faced in Dedede's Cake Royale, and fight similarly to Spear Kirby.
