This article is about Waddle Doos who swing on ropes. For Waddle Doos in a general context, see Waddle Doo.

Swinging Waddle Doo[Japanese title] is an uncommon enemy which first appeared in Kirby Super Star. Much like Swinging Waddle Dee, Swinging Waddle Doo swings back and forth on a rope, which can either be moving parallel to Kirby's plane of action, or perpendicular to it.

Swinging Waddle Doo behaves exactly like Swinging Waddle Dee while it is swinging, as it cannot fire its beam while on the rope. Cutting it down using a suitable ability will cause it to fall and return to being a standard Waddle Doo, whereupon it will start using its beam again. Otherwise, Swinging Waddle Doo can be defeated by attacking it directly, or swallowing it to obtain the Beam ability.

Game appearances[edit]

Reason: needs locations

Kirby Super Star[edit]

Swinging Waddle Doo in the Sub-Tree area of The Great Cave Offensive, in Kirby Super Star.

Swinging Waddle Doo makes his first appearance in this game. He is considerably rarer than a regular Waddle Doo. If he survives being hit by something, he will detach from the rope and behave like a regular Waddle Doo.

There appears to be only one Swinging Waddle Doo in the game, located in the Sub-Tree area of The Great Cave Offensive. Notably, Swinging Waddle Dee is not in this game, making his first debut in Revenge of the King in Kirby Super Star Ultra.

Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

Swinging Waddle Doo appears again in this game. In addition to being in his old location in Sub-Tree, he can also be found in Revenge of the King.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

Swinging Waddle Doo makes it's first 3D appearance, otherwise being unchanged.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe & Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Swinging Waddle Doo appears again, still largely unchanged. In Triple Deluxe, it only appears in stage 6 EX of Fine Fields. In Planet Robobot, it is not mechanized and only appears in Resolution Road stage 4.
