    Overview


    King Dedede is an obese penguin and the self-proclaimed king of Dreamland.  He commands a few enemies in Dreamland, such as Waddle Dees and Waddle Doos.  King Dedede is a boss in many games from the Kirby Franchise created by Masahiro Sakurai.  King Dedede is also a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    Relationship to Kirby


    King Dedede is often pestered by Kirby, who breaks into his palace and steals his food.  King Dedede is shown repeatedly to be an antagonist, but he is more of an anti-hero.  King Dedede has teamed up with Kirby in the past to get rid of a greater evil.  King Dedede can also inhale enemies like Kirby, but he cannot steal their powers.  King Dedede sometimes wields a large hammer, and it is said that Kirby learned his Hammer Ability from King Dedede.

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl


    King Dedede is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl who is playable by default.  King Dedede is classified as a heavy slow character.  King Dedede is known for his ability to chain grab many many members of the cast because of his long grab range and short knockback throws.

    King Dedede also plays a role in the story of the one-player mode The Subspace Emissary, in which he obtains the fighter trophies of Ness, Peach (or Zelda, depending on the player's actions) and Luigi from Wario.  King Dedede had witnessed the power and intentions of the evil Tabuu when the Battleship Halberd was taken, and worries that if there are no fighters left, Tabuu will take over the world.  King Dedede then puts a Dedede badge on the three trophies, guaranteeing that if King Dedede was turned into a trophy, the three other fighter trophies would be revived into fighters.  King Dedede is voiced by Super Smash Bros. Series creator Masahiro Sakurai.
