The iconic first boss of the Kirby series. Having been here since the very beginning in Kirby's Dream Land where he stood in Kirby's way as the boss of Green Greens. Kirby may always beat him, but time and time again Whispy comes back without fail, must be his sturdy and unmovable resolve! Whispy has a ton of presence in Kirby, being in nearly every single Kirby game making him recognizable to hardcore and casual Kirby fans alike. He's even recognizable to Smash fans! Having appeared on Dream Land stage in Smash 64, Melee, and Wii U/3DS, and having appeared on Green Greens stage in Melee, Brawl, both stages also return in Ultimate!
Some may be quick to point out that Whispy Woods is a tree and cannot move, however to that I would direct them to Kirby's Dream Land 3, where he demonstrated the ability to uproot himself and walk!
On top of having the basic ability to move, Whispy can also attack with his roots, his apples, and puffs of wind he spits out, while his sturdy body makes smashing him quite a difficult challenge!
I actually made an entire moveset for him a couple years back but for the sake of keeping this simple and short, I'm just gonna look over specials and you can use your imagination for the rest.
Up special (Root-copter): Whispy Woods extends all his roots out and spins around very fast, granting him liftoff and injuring anyone who touches him.
Down special (Planting): Whispy Woods plants himself into the ground, granting him super armor and making him imovable until he runs out of super armor, in which he case will go into stun. While planted Whispy can only use Neutral special (Apple), side special (Surprise!) and by pressing the A button he can spit out puffs of air that auto aim at opponents. Whispy can uproot again by either inputting down special or by jumping. Uprooting takes awhile, and while you can jump out of it instead, you will suffer extra cooldown upon landing if you do. By using this move in the air, you can plummet straight down as an attack, spiking anyone directly beneath you and landing with a hard "THUD!" that knocks opponents away while you settle in your roots.
Side special (Surprise!): Whispy Woods plants a root into the ground, which pops out and injures opponents. While uprooted the root is fast and will travel a set distance, however while planted you can control the root while it's still underground, and can spring it by pressing the button again.
Neutral special (Apple): Whispy Woods grows an apple. An apple stays on Whispy for about one and a half seconds before dropping, once they drop they'll bounce across the floor and injure enemies they come into contact with. Whispy can grow three apples at a time.
So, let me know what you think. I know Whispy isn't a popular at all but I think it'd be really fun if he got in. Thanks for reading and I hope Whispy has your support!
