Waddle Dee 25th Anniversary was the official April Fool's prank for 2018 featuring Waddle Dee (despite the actual 25th Anniversary in 2017). It is succeeded by Square Kirby in 2019.

Description

The Waddle Dee 25th Anniversary official website gives a description in Japanese:

"わたしたちワドルディは、
1992年4月27日にゲームボーイ用ソフト
『星のカービィ』に登場し、
2017年に25周年を迎えました。

すって、のまれて25年
ワル気*もヤル気*もないのになぁ……
能力もってないのになぁ……
そんなに好きなの? ぼくのこと
そんなにおいしい? わたしたち

おっと、不穏なやつらが襲来
よーし、集まれ仲間たち
あとはまかせたカービィさん
ぼくらをこえて、強くなれ
プププランドをたのみます!**

これからも、みんなでがんばる
ワドルディ一同を
応援していただければ幸いです。"

The following is the translation:

"We the Waddle Dees debuted in the Game Boy software Kirby's Dream Land on April 27th 1992, and now we are celebrating our 25th Anniversary in 2017.

For the past 25 years of being inhaled and swallowed, we are neither malicious* nor motivated*… We don't yield any ability either… Do you like it so much about me? Are we so delicious?

Oh, unpeaceful invaders are coming. Yo, friends assemble, and we will leave this to Kirby. Get over us and be strong. The Dream Land relies on you!**

We will do our best from now on. It would be appreciated if you could support Waddle Dees."

Translation notes:
* ワル気 (warugi, "malice") and ヤル気 (yaruki, "motivation") are puns in Japanese. ワル気 also begins with ワ like ワドルディ (Waddle Dee).
** refers to Kirby.

Parody

The links to the official websites of Kirby Star Allies and Kirby: Battle Royale have the artworks of characters all replaced by Waddle Dees instead, and clicking the links would lead to pop-up illustrations of King Dedede and/or Meta Knight clarifying this as an April Fool's prank. The goods section of the website features three same items of the official Waddle Dee soft toy (not jokes this time).
