King Dedede's Tank was King Dedede's original transportation device in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. It appeared until the episode The Kirby Derby - Part I where it was replaced by the Limousine he purchased from Nightmare Enterprises in that episode (although it made a cameo appearance in a picture of Dedede and Escargoon in the episode, Escar-Gone). The origins of the tank are unknown, but it's very likely that he also purchased it from NME. The Tank is driven by Escargoon whilst the King handles the cannon. The cannon itself does work as it was the reason that Kirby remained in Cappy Town at the conclusion of Kirby Comes to Cappy Town, and has been used in later episodes, usually to herd Kirby towards his latest monster, or to just be a nuisance in general.

King Dedede's Tank as it appears in the English Dub

The tank resembles a jeep with a large cannon situated on the passenger side. It also has a toolbox on the back. In the Japanese version of the anime, it was painted in military camouflage colors; in the English dub, it was recolored with an orange color scheme with the King's emblem painted on the front, and the toolbox was replaced with what resembles a trash can.

Trivia

  • Strangely, King Dedede's tank can be seen in the Japanese colors (the military palette) for a split second in the dub of Un-Reality TV.
