|“||Seeing as you were sweet enough to send us your trash, we thought we'd send you some of ours.”|

Trash Basher (Duston in Japan) is a walking trash can appearing in the episode A Trashy Tale that likes to puke garbage everywhere he goes (despite not having unlimited supplies of it to spew), and is also capable of puking what appears to be acid. Inspired by the fact that Dedede uploaded so much trash to the fortress's command center, NME Salesman sends Trash Basher to the castle, where he then starts puking trash all over King Dedede's castle and then Cappy Town. Kirby refuses to suck up any of his garbage when Dedede sics him on the monster, but a broom thrown by Meta Knight allows Kirby to transform into Clean Kirby and easily overpower Trash Basher. Getting the monster to run out of garbage to spew, Kirby then hits him with a dust-bombing attack before finishing him off with one swipe of his broom, destroying him.
Trash Basher is a trash can with greenish gray arms and legs. He wears rusty dark pink gloves and brown boots with lighter brown shoelaces, in which his gloves go up to the knuckles of his hands. Within his trash can body is disgusting garbage that he spews out to attack, along with acid-like liquid that he can spit, too. On his lid is a face with sunken-in red eyes. His lid can be opened up as a makeshift mouth for him to spew his garbage and liquid from.
