Waddle Doo is an orange creature, similar to Waddle Dees, with a single large eye often found in the Kirby series games. The Waddle Doo serves as an enemy and sometimes, a companion of Kirby. It attacks primarily by firing a beam from its eye. Swallowing a Waddle Doo will typically yield Kirby the Beam ability, and if holding a parasol, it will yield Kirby the Parasol ability.

Game appearances

Kirby's Dream Land


Waddle Doos first appear in Kirby's Dream Land. They stand in place and will attempt to fire beams at Kirby. Since there are no Copy Abilities in this title, they provide nothing if swallowed.

Kirby's Adventure

In Kirby's Adventure, Waddle Doos are semi-common enemies bearing the Beam ability. They reappear in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.

Kirby Super Star

In Kirby Super Star, Waddle Doos are rather common enemies that attack using their characteristic beam. Waddle Doos can also serve as Helpers (who are slightly lighter orange than standard Waddle Doos), created out of the Beam ability.

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Waddle Doo does not appear as a regular enemy in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Instead, it appears as the form Kirby's Waddle Dee friend takes when he is posessed by Dark Matter. Kirby fights Waddle Doo as a mid-boss in the game after a dramatic cut-scene showing the Waddle Dee being posessed, and, peculiarly enough, Waddle Doo does not fire beams from its eye in this iteration. It merely tries to body-slam Kirby.

Kirby Canvas Curse

Waddle Doos appear in Kirby Canvas Curse, providing the Beam ability when touched. A Waddle Doo Character Ball is also playable in the game.

Kirby's Epic Yarn

In Kirby's Epic Yarn, yarn versions of Waddle Doos appear as a rather common enemy. Upon spotting Kirby, the yarn Waddle Doo will shoot a laser out of its button eye. It will adjust its hair after shooting the laser.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Waddle Doo returns as an enemy in this game, providing the Beam ability like before. It can also be found carrying a Parasol. A super variant known as Super Waddle Doo can also be found, which provides the Flare Beam Super Ability

A similar enemy, known as King Doo appears as a Mid-Boss.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Waddle Doo appears again in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, reprising its role from its previous appearance. One of the stage bosses, Kracko, will summon Waddle Doos to attack Kirby.

Kirby: Battle Royale

In Dedede's Cake Royale, a Waddle Doo operates the check-in desk for tournament battles. He presents Kirby with the battles in his current league, and informs Kirby when he has enough League Points to enter the qualifier rounds.

A Waddle Doo can also be seen in the audience for Crazy Theater, wielding two glow sticks and flailing them with much more gusto than the Waddle Dees in the crowd.

Kirby Star Allies

Waddle Doo returns as a standard enemy in this title. He can also become a Friend, representing the Beam ability. As such, he can provide the Zap element to weapons and help perform moves like Zap Splasher.

Super Smash Bros. series

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Waddle Doos appear as a collectible trophy.

Trophy Information

Waddle Doo WaddleDooBrawlTrophy.png GB Kirby's Dream Land
DS Kirby: Squeak Squad (NTSC), Kirby: Mouse Attack (PAL)
A creature identified by a single, unblinking eye. Like Waddle Dees, Waddle Doos roam about Dream Land and sometimes use parasols. Unlike their counterparts, though, they hate being approached—they'll fire a beam of energy at anyone who nears them, so don't think they're harmless like Waddle Dees. If Kirby swallows one, he copies the Beam ability and gains a jester's hat.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

Waddle Doos appear as an enemy in Smash Run, a mode made exclusively for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

Trophy Description
Name Image NTSC-U Description PAL Description
Waddle Doo
Two big eyelashes for one big eye? You're describing this beam-firing enemy from the Kirby series. This enemy may hop toward a fighter it spots and unleash an energy attack. The attack itself has a short range, but it can happen repeatedly and can stun. Unlike Waddle Dees, these guys will fight! These one-eyes, two-haired guys from the Kirby series are hungry for battle. When one spots you, it'll close in slowly with the occasional hop. Then it'll attack with its Beam Whip, which doesn't really have a lot of range, but can shock and hit you repeatedly. Ahhh... If only they were more like Waddle Dees...
