King Dedede is a main character and recurring antagonist from the Kirby series.
Powers & Abilities
Flight: Despite being what can only be described as a fat penguin, Dedede can fly by inhaling mass amounts of air and floating, in a similar manner to Kirby.
Inhale: Similar to Kirby's inhale, but he can't copy abilities. He can only spit out opponents as stars.
Super Dedede Jump: He can make massive leaps in a single bound, and the force of landing on someone can bury them into the ground.
Hammer: His hammer is notorious for being massive, hard-hitting, and it has complex mechanical workings on the inside. One swing is said to level a building, and not only can Dedede swing it around with incredible ease, he can charge up the mechanical workings to deliver a powerful blow, more than capable of severely incapacitating someone.
Masked Dedede: When he wants to get really serious, he puts on his metal mask, and swaps out his regualr hammer for a massive, metal, mechanical, monstrous mallet capable of spewing fire and missiles. In this form, he has many additional attacks, and a large increase in speed, strength, and durability.
Is able to pick up and swing his hammer with incredible ease.
Can keep up with Kirby on foot.
Survived a planet-sized explosions without a scratch.
Goes toe-to-toe with Kirby on a regular basis.
Defeated Magolor while he (Magolor) was wearing the Master Crown, giving him "limitless power".
Several of his attacks leave him open, such as Super Dedede Jump and his hammer.
While he isn't dumb by any means, he's not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, either.
While it's unknown what species he is, many have speculated him to be either a penguin, a duck, or several other types of birds.
