King Dedede

King Dedede

- Kirby - [39]

King Dedede is the main villain of the Kirby series. In Kirby’s Adventure, he steals the Star Rod, the source of power to the Fountain of Dreams and breaks it into seven pieces, handing off the pieces to his allies while keeping one to himself. He's known for fighting Kirby in boxing rings while wielding his giant mechanized hammer, but he isn't a full-fledged villain all the time. In a few Kirby games, he actually helps Kirby out in his adventures.

King Dedede moves really slow, but has a lot of power. He has one of the most powerful Side Smashes in the game in terms of knockback. He can also jump five times in midair, just like Kirby. In the previous Smash installment he threw Waddle Dees, Waddle Doos, and Gordos, but for this game he only throws Gordos. Wow!
