|No—that’s not Whispy Woods! This venerable elder is Yggy Woods, ancient king of trees. Any travelers who stray into his neck of the woods will feel the full force of nature’s wrath!|
— Pause Menu info from Yggy Woods' fight
Yggy is first seen in Far-Flung Starlight Heroes, in the Falluna Moon stage after Whispy is defeated. He also appears in the Extra Planet δ stage, in Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!, and The Ultimate Choice on the highest three difficulty levels.
Yggy fights very similar to Whispy, but can be considered to be an EX form. He is tougher and drops poisonous cherries instead of apples. He also drops Blados from his canopy, among other things. On occasion, a golden cherry will drop from him. Swallowing this cherry gives Kirby the Festival ability.
The following table lists all of Yggy Woods' attack in Kirby Star Allies. Attacks in italics are used in the second phase only:
|Yggy Woods' Attacks in Kirby Star Allies|
|Dark Air Bullet||Yggy first shoots 2 Air Bullets and then 8 in a row. This leaves Recoil Star on impact.|
|Big Burst Fruits||Yggy lets down much larger burning fruits on vines than Whispy Woods does. These can be swallowed for the Fire ability.|
If cooled down using a water, ice or wind-based attack, they yield Food items.
|Cherry Drop||Yggy drops one or more cherries, which can be inhaled and spat back at him.|
|Enemy Drop||Yggy shakes out a number of different enemies from his canopy. These include enemies that can be made into allies.|
|Blado Drop||Yggy drops a Blado from its canopy, which hits the ground, then moves quickly off-stage.|
|Yggy Inhale||Yggy attempts to inhale Kirby and his allies. If successful, he will chew on them, then spit them back out.|
|Great Harvest Cherry Festival||Yggy Woods begins with this attack during the second phase.
He uproots and jumps to the middle. Then, he shakes violently, causing many cherries to fall from its canopy.
|Jump Press ~ Uproot||Yggy uproots and jumps 3 times around the stage, flattening anyone underneath when he lands.|

- Yggy Woods' name is a reference to Yggdrasil, a tree in Norse mythology.
- Yggy Woods fought right after Whispy in the Falluna Moon stage resembles Twin Woods fought right after Whispy in Revenge of Meta Knight and Milky Way Wishes from Kirby Super Star.
