I think a good place to start would be asking who player 4 in Return to Dream Land would have been if not Bandana Dee; that was really the lynchpin that made him important. I think it would have been either Marx or Adeleine, myself.Sometimes, I wonder where we'd all be if Bandana Dee wasn't prominent enough to be recognized as a potential fighter for Smash.
Would we be rooting for just a simple Waddle Dee? Or any of the other "cooler" Kirby characters people keep raving about?
Considering that he's my #1 most wanted character at the moment, I wouldn't have been surprised if I had fallen off of Smash Speculation completely aside from maybe some bandwagoning for other characters like Crash and Rayman.
Or maybe, in an alternative universe we'd all be Adeleine fans battling Sakurai's bias against human-like characters in Kirby games, with every other aspect of Kirby, both classic and modern, already being completely and fairly represented.
I mean, it wasn't even going to be Kirby's Return to Dream Land; It was originally just Kirby GCN, with more Helpers. If it weren't for the more continuity-focused direction Shinya Kumazaki took the series, I'm not even sure we'd have much support for another Kirby character. Then again, Brawl gave Kirby quite the bump, so that might be it too.I think a good place to start would be asking who player 4 in Return to Dream Land would have been if not Bandana Dee; that was really the lynchpin that made him important.

You can never have too much Kirby and I should check out that e-book.There was a problem fetching the tweetThere’s this online activity book that’s kinda like Where’s Waldo, where you have to find different colored Kirbies. Bandana Dee appears every now and then.
Supposedly, it has an entirely new Wrestler ability, and non-Kirby characters are playable. At the very least, it specified King Dedede and Bandana Waddle Dee himself.
I did notice that, although at the same time, he's not on the icon.This may sound a bit petty, but screw it. They mentioned BandDee INSTEAD of Meta Knight!
Our boy is rising up to the top of the friends list!
I think that's a Kirby with Cutter fighting Ninja.So combined with the description and promo image, we can see a good chunk of the roster:
and there's also a character fighting Ninja who I can't quite put my finger on. Not counting them in case it's Bandana Dee.
- Bandana Waddle Dee
- King Dedede
- Meta Knight
That's 11, which is one away from how many we had in KFDeluxe. It's 99% gonna have a larger roster than Deluxe, but I'm wondering how much larger.
I hope all of the Dream Friends of Star Allies are playable here. They already have the assests, so i don't think it would be too hard.Supposedly, it has an entirely new Wrestler ability, and non-Kirby characters are playable.

I feel like a lot of them would be in need of balancing, especially combat-oriented ones like Dark Meta Knight and Marx. Still, if HAL already has the assets, I think they should be able to change things up enough to keep them balanced while still keeping them in. At the very least, it seems that Bandana Dee and Magolor are in; Seeing as they've become the fourth and fifth main characters by now, that isn't all that surprising.I hope all of the Dream Friends of Star Allies are playable here.

It's nice seeing Bandana Dee as Kirby's buddy in the two-player mode. Magolor and Gooey are pleasant surprises as well, the latter especially. It would've been nice to get every Dream Friend, but I can't complain with the ones that we did get.so this just dropped lol
and it's out now, I guess!
The fact that Gooey, of all people, gets to duke it out with confirmed mainstays is just the cherry on top.Well, considering Bandana Dee is used as Kirby's buddy for the story mode, I think we can finally, finally lay the "he's not important!" argument to rest.
I mean, we all knew he was important, but it's nice to see another affirmation.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate this render? It perfectly encapsulates who Bandana Dee is! "He may look like a Waddle Dee. He may BE a Waddle Dee, but he is anything but just a Waddle Dee! He is a fighter who has trained in the art of the Spear for years, and has joined the battle as a playable character to prove it! And if you dare cross him or Kirby, he'll prove it to you too!" That's the vibe I get from this render and I L O V E it!
