King Dedede shows up in Brawl

King Dedede shows up in Brawl

Warning! Challenger approaching in Super Smash Bros Brawl! It's King Dedede from the Kirby series. A lot of people seemed to predict this, although Mr X wasn't one of them.

Dedede is a big guy and wields a wooden mallet.


I wish they'd carry my mallet too.


Hi-ho, it's off to work I go.


My toe!


Be careful, there are Sand People around these parts.

I didn't expect dedede to be in. Well that's another villain and heavyweight. I don't like the looks of him though, he looks like a little penguin - not like the one I know.

Ah yes, King Dedede joins the Brawl. I expected him to appear either as a Playable Character or an Assist Trophy if they couldn't think of enough moves for him to use. However I guess they found enough moves and a Final Smash for him so he's in.

Gerardo said:

Well, I certainly didn't expect him to be a playable character. I thought of Dedede more as an assist trophy. But this is good, nevertheless. If the developers are actually putting such low-profile characters in the roster, who knows what other characters will be given a chance to join the brawl.

I guess he's ok, but which is the main bad guy of Kirby games, King Dedede or Meta Knight? Because I would like to have a 4vs villain battle when I get Brawl. I wonder what the Ice Climbers say about King DEDE's mallet.

I didn't expect him. I thought he would be a boss or something, turns out he was a character. I wouldn't really want him to be in brawl, but he's ok.

This guy seems more useful as an assist trophy.

Ha the second caption was good. I didn't exactly see this coming, but still, that's pretty cool.

I had a feeling King Dedede was going to be in. I think this is a cool update.

Hooray! My second dream Brawl character to come (first being Sonic). Lol to captions.

Olimar! Where are you? Olimar's probably a hidden character that's why. Great update! Characters are always welcome.

Aeth said:

Peach is #1, King Dedede is the main villain in the Kirby games. Meta Knight only becomes the villain if he sees something he doesn't like and wants to change it by force. However Meta Knight is usually one of Kirby's allies.

Good addition. I thought that he would have been a lame assist trophy.

This is great! I found my brawler.

Well this is awesome. I was having trouble thinking of who I'd like to main, and he showed up so I found my main.

Loved the 4th Star Wars caption.

RisingPhoenix said:

The Kirby circle is now complete. I'm so happy he's in, I always knew he was going to join the game but I'm so freakin excited to see the Kirby trio together! Also, to Gerardo, he's not as low-profile as Lucas (or Ness for that matter) and who the hell were Marth & Roy before they joined Melee?! Anyway I'm just glad to see some great news for once (ever since Sonic the updates have been kind of sucky).

YAY! Now we got a huge turtle, a huge monkey, AND a huge penguin. I duuno, I just find the pic with bowser and DDD looks very awkward.

Scooby Jew said:

Yeah, I remember a lot of people talking about it. I was one of the more doubtful ones unfortunately, and kept saying "No, I doubt he's going to be in Brawl". Can't be right 100% of the time, I suppose. 99.9% will have to suffice.

Were the game developers of kirby games thinking of carlos mecia when they made this character?

Elebot said:

When I first saw this, I was stunned. How could they put Dedede in Brawl? But the more I think about it, the more I realize that this might not be that bad of a move after all.

divinityboy said:

This guy looks cool. My only gripe is now we have 2 players with giant mallets (ice climbers). I'm definitely trying this guy out.

Avatar

supamario88 said:

This is a great update! I'm glad we have another villain/heavyweight fighter. A lot of Kirby characters showing up, which is cool.

Avatar

YoshLee said:

This isn't a surprise one bit. Nintendo talked about needing more kirby characters, villains, and fatsos (meaning heavy characters). Dedede fits all of these, especially the third one.

Avatar

Roof said:

YES. I wanted Dedede to be in brawl since last year. This totally ROCKS. I always thought he was perfect for brawl. Him and shadow.

TidalSpiral said:

Wow, the rest of the people here aren't happy? I for one love Dedede and can't wait to use his crazy skills! Even better than Meta-Knight (still like both though).

Low profile character? The main villain in the Kirby series is a low profile character? What drugs are you on?

There no need for a King DeDeDe Kirby, because Kirby already has a hammer for one of his moves.

All I can say is the more characters, the better.

I expect his moves to be poor. Very poor moves.

Olimar has no aggression, how can he be in a fighting game.

Diddy Kong Lover said:

Why him? Why not NiGHTS or Rayman or Lucario.

Gonzo said:

He's an official character. I like him, but if I made this game, I would've made him an assisst trophy.

Chiisaru said:

Oh my god! My dream villains are coming, just K Rool and Ridley are in wait.

Aeth said:

Now looking at the avatar, I realize what looks wrong with Smash's King Dedede. His eye pupils are too big, they should be small and beady.

Avatar

Brawl fan said:

Hey I don't care who joins, more characters means a better game and he looks alright anyway.

Dedede Daio said:

Dedede will be my favourite character, I know it. Or maybe Wario. Or Bowser. Or hopefully Ganondorf.

Avatar

Ridley FTB said:

This was almost certain. 5/5 on the polls and Sakurai's own creation. His chances couldn't have been higher to be playable.

Avatar

Andrew said:

We need ridley and K Rool confirmed! They are both heavyweights and villains.

Avatar

Dark Star said:

Divinityboy, there are actually three, Kirby also has a giant hammer remember. But I'm glad Dedede is in Brawl and am hoping for him to be considered a villain, possibly one that becomes a hero. This should cover all the playable Kirby characters. However personally hoping for Dark Matter or Nightmare as a boss.

Avatar

BrothaZ said:

What's up with Lucario? I don't really see why so many people like him. All I need is ganondorf, vaati, zant, midna, wolf link, skull kid, and windwaker link. Not too much to ask for, is it?

Avatar

Aeth said:

Lucario is just an awesome character to some people. What if someone said that you should redo your list because they don't like any of the characters on it? Of course you'll argue back because you like those characters and that's the same with Lucario, a lot of people like him/her and want him as a playable character.

Captain Jamesman said:

That makes the 3rd Kirby character to come to Brawl.

Avatar

BrothaZ said:

I'm not saying I dislike him or that he shouldnt be in brawl, I just don't get his massive popularity. Is he like a legendary pokemon or something?

Avatar

Aeth said:

Guess you're not familiar with the Pokemon franchise. Well Lucario isn't a legendary, however he was featured in the 8th Pokemon movie "Lucario and the Mystery of Mew". The movie itself got an anime award (or nomination, I need to look it up). In the movie Lucario played a great role. In the Pokemon world overall, Lucarios are Fighting and Steel-Types and are born fighters. Due to the movie and game background of the species, many people would like Lucario as it was a fighter in both movies and games.

GamingGuy84 said:

3 characters for Kirby, huh? Guess all we need now (besides the last 3rd party character) are two characters from Star Fox and maybe two from Metroid. Star Fox: Krystal and Wolf (we need more females and villains). Metroid: Sylux and Weavel (both from Metroid Prime Hunters). To me, Zero Suit Samus isn't a another character; she is just Samus in another form. Why list her Zero Suit form as a separate character? Oh, and King K Rool from Donkey Kong too.

insultman911 said:

Dedede doesn't look all that evil.

Avatar

Supayoshi88 said:

Well, Zero Suit Samus is noticed as another character, but doesn't really take up a metroid character space. In Melee, Sheik was noticed as a character but isn't placed on the character select screen. Just a transformation of Zelda, as is Zero to Samus. Also in Melee, even though Sheik and Zelda were in it (besides the fact that they were one character) there was still three more characters from the Zelda series, Link (of course), Ganondorf, and Young Link. So it's very possible there can be two more metroid characters, even though I personally don't think there will be. Ridley will most likely be a boss.

King Dedede is going to be amazing. He was the most wanted villain in Japan. And there are too many Pokemon in the game already. Dedede is not evil. He only fights for himself.
