Bandanna Waddle Dee is a Waddle Dee who serves King Dedede. His first role is in Kirby Super Star, where he was the first opponent in Megaton Punch. He apppeared again 14 years later to star in Kirby Super Star Ultra's Revenge of the King. After that, he appeared as a playable character in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Kirby Super Star UltraEdit

In the last stage of Revenge of the King, Castle Dedede, Bandanna Waddle Dee participates in the dialogue leading up to a battle with him, in which he behaves like a regular Waddle Dee. Aside from the fact that he has an unusually high stamina guage, he can be defeated just by inhaling him.

Kirby's Return to Dream LandEdit

Bandanna Waddle Dee is a whole lot weaker than Kirby, permanently using Spear Kirby's moveset. He has a power that allows him to hover by spinning his spear. This is actually first seen in episode 72 of both versions of the anime, except with a broom. It is not actually Bandanna Waddle Dee that does it though. In this game, he is simply referred to as "Waddle Dee."
