I want to know what someone who doesnt know Kirby thinks about Bandana Waddle Dee!
From what I can tell from interactions on social media, people seem to think his body type being similar to Kirby might influence his moveset, for whatever reason. I mean, sure. that's a possibility, but Jigglypuff does that and still ends up with an entire different playstyle. Not to mention, sometimes Waddle Dees are shown to be ever so slightly bigger than Kirby.

I'd imagine he could reuse a couple animations, like the walking or jumping, or at least have Kirby's model as a base. Smash reuses animations fairly often to make things easier, like how Joker has Sheik's up air and Min Min reused Captain Falcon's skeleton. Obviously, Bandana Dee would be unique, but I wouldn't be too surprised if he had some Kirby elements in him.

It would be great if Bandana Dee also managed to get moves that Kirby should've gotten, like the common Slide move from the games.
But yeah though, stuff like walking and jumping would probably be borrowed/inspired by Kirby.

He wouldn't be an outright Echo of Kirby though, like some people have actually said in the past.

It's impossible for anyone to be a Echo of Kirby.

Yeah, and in all fairness, Bandana Dee does actually copy and paste Kirby's base animations in Star Allies as well (I think most, if not all of the regular Helpers do too actually), stuff like his Idle, walk, run, jump, and slide animations. Since Ultimate updated Kirby's jumping and running animations to be more accurate to the RttD-styled games, it technically would be relatively accurate to reuse those animations for Dee as well. They'd definitely use Kirby as a base, but I hope that they'd at least give Bandana Dee's animations more of a personal touch, maybe taking cues from different Waddle Dee animations throughout the series.

mr game and watch ist relly a character, just a composite of of nameless sprites
I guess but keeby is in pesonality abiltiy and looks identical to kirby and is already in smash

and shadow kirby also makes more sense as a Skin Gooey was agood choice even thourgh he works more as a semi clone!
(ps can i copy a dark matter Moveset to this Thread?)
