King Dedede is Kirby's archenemy, the greedy self-proclaimed king of Dream Land on the planet Popstar. He is angry at Kirby for having all the residents of Cappy Town, taking his anger out on the townspeople. Despite having a mean disposition, he is a nice guy and has reluctantly accepted Kirby as the real hero of Dream Land as he would help him against a mutual enemy that threatens Dream Land.

Other Things

  • According to his Smash Bros. Melee trophy description, he learned to fly like Kirby through vigorous training. A statement in Kirby & the Rainbow Curse & Smash Ultimate support this.
    • However, he always had the ability to suck things up.
  • Could see Kirby all the way from space.
  • His hammer respawns indefinitely, meaning he can throw it as a projectile, & pull out another one just fine



  • Repeated losing streak against Kirby.
  • Goofy, clumsy, lacks intelligence.
  • Acts more like a jerk rather than a true villain. Most of his evil plots are just Dedede acting like a narcissistic bully.
    • Occasionally acts affiliated with Kirby and Dreamland, even if Kirby isn't aware of it
    • Even when depicted as a villain, admits that he does not want Kirby to die and sees him more of a friendly rival. Dedede is willing to team up with Kirby to fight a greater threat; even hugging him in Brawl [1].
  • Sometimes underestimates opponents
  • Overcharging Jet Hammer causes damage to himself due to the flames getting too hot
  • Has been frequently brainwashed by dark-magic
  • Regarded as one of the worst characters in Super Smash Bros for Wii U, landing himself in the G Tier (52nd out of 55 characters)
    • This is due to his slow mobility, weight, and removed chain throw combos.


King Dedede has been known to be an anti-hero, neutral, or heroic in recent installments. His first heroic appearance is considered to be Kirby's Return to Dream Land.
