Parasol Waddle Dees are the second most common form of Waddle Dee - a relatively harmless variant that hold a red and white Parasol. It is the only Waddle Dee that bestows an ability, the Parasol ability, to Kirby when inhaled. Inhaling the parasol after it is let go of gives the same effect, but inhaling the Waddle Dee that has already dropped the parasol gives no ability.
Parasol Waddle Dees mainly look the same like their common cousins, the regular Waddle Dees, the only difference being that Parasol Waddle Dees are carrying a parasol. These enemies also swap their color palette to the appearance of the Waddle Dees in the area.
