Bandana Waddle Dee, also called Bandana Dee is a mini boss who debuted in Kirby Super Star Ultra. Kirby can easily beat him by inhaling him. He has since become one of four main characters of the series along with Kirby himself, King Dedede and Meta Knight.
Bandana Waddle Dee looks like any other Waddle Dee, but wears a blue bandana. However, after Kirby Super Star Ultra, his skin is more orange than other Waddle Dees, as well as his feet being more yellow.
Revenge of the King
Bandana Waddle Dee is fought after Kirby beats Mr. Tick-Tock, Grand Wheelie, Phan Phan, and twin Fire Lions. Even if Kirby inhales him, he still appears in the crowd when Kirby fights Masked Dedede, which consists of him only.
Bandana Waddle Dee appears as the first foe fought in Megaton Punch. Since he is the first foe, he is obviously the weakest.
Kirby's Return to Dream Land
In Kirby's Return to Dream Land Bandana Waddle Dee appears as a playable character. He is shown to be wielding a spear. He accompanies Kirby, King Dedede, and Meta Knight in the multiplayer mode. He has the same moves as Spear Kirby. Spear is an ability new to the Kirby series in this game, making Waddle Dee the only multiplayer character, besides a different colored Kirby, that can have a new ability.
Kirby Triple Deluxe
In Kirby Triple Deluxe, Bandanna Waddle Dee appears in several stages, assisting Kirby by giving him varying recovery items. If the player has Street Pass active and they come across someone else with the game, Bandanna Waddle Dee will give Kirby a keychain along with the usual recovery item.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
In Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, he is the multiplayer character. Players 2- 4 can play as him and the game function as normal platforming characters. He can help out Kirby either by picking him up or taking care of hazards.
In Kirby: Planet Robobot, Bandana Waddle Dee has the same role as he had in Kirby Triple Deluxe.
Kirby Star Allies
In Kirby Star Allies, Bandana Waddle Dee is a Dream Friend unlocked from the beginning of the story. You are able to summon him from the Dream Palaces across the game. He is also playable in the "Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!" mode and in The Ultimate Choice.
- In Kirby Star Allies, Bandana Waddle Dee's moveset is based off of his Return to Dremland moveset (which is the Spear Ability). However, Spear is not able to be obtained in Star Allies, meaning Bandana Waddle Dee is the only character with the Spear ability.
