Waddle Dees are a species in the Kirby franchise. They are similar to Goombas, in that they are the most common and weakest enemies to come across. However, unlike Goombas, Waddle Dees are carefree, and do not generally try to hurt Kirby. Waddle Dees mainly just made their only Mario-related appearances in the Super Smash Bros. series.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, a Waddle Dee appeared as a trophy.

They appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, acting as one of King Dedede's attacks, Waddle Dee Toss. King Dedede tosses a Waddle Dee at his opponent, and after it hits, the Waddle Dees continue to walk around the stage. The Waddle Dee's relative, the Waddle Doo, may also appear during this attack. Four Waddle Dees were seen carrying King Dedede's throne around the stage, which is his battle entrance.

Waddle Dees also appear in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS; they have been removed from King Dedede's moveset, being replaced by Gordos, but Parasol Waddle Dees appear in the version-exclusive mode Smash Run.

Waddle Dee Kirby's Dream Land
Many delicate creatures like this one inhabit Dream Land. They generally live carefree lives and have never considered themselves to be followers of King Dedede. Waddle Dees are innocent and generally harmless to man and beast. While they have virtually no offensive or defensive power, they'll sometimes try to wield a parasol.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Waddle Dee GB Kirby's Dream Land
DS Kirby: Squeak Squad
A carefree creature that wanders the hills and dales of Dream Land. Basically harmless to creatures great and small, Waddle Dees sometimes use parasols to float down through the skies. If Kirby swallows a parasol, he'll get one he can use to float or ward off enemy attacks. On the other hand, Kirby can't copy anything by swallowing Waddle Dees themselves.
