Waddle Dee is the weakest and most common land-based enemy in the Kirby games, but in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, N-Zs took over that role and only one Waddle Dee is seen in the game. It briefly became a Waddle Doo after Dark Matter possessed it and he befriends Kirby after being freed, and joins up with the team along with Ribbon to recover all the Crystal Shards.
