He is a large blue penguin, that claims to be the king of Dream Land, however he performs no administrative function for the people, and for the most part is ignored by most of Dream Land's populace. Nonetheless he seems to have a sizeable army of easily swayed followers and owns castles and fortresses all over the country. King Dedede's selfish and self-centered behavior frequently causes him and Kirby to butt heads, however he will often fight to defend the people of Dream Land and even team up with Kirby, whenever an outside force threatens "his" kingdom.

He has appeared in almost every game in the series (with the exception of Kirby & the Amazing Mirror). As such, he is the most recurring major character of the series besides Kirby, Meta Knight and Waddle Dee. Nintendo has described Dedede as Kirby's "Arch frenemy," and as he has helped more than harmed him since Kirby's Return to Dream Land, it is debatable whether or not Dedede is even a real antagonist anymore as most of his recents fight with Kirby were out of his control as he has a tendency to be mind controlled by the real threat of every game.
