King Dedede is the main antagonist of Kirby franchise and the arch-nemesis of Kirby. Dedede is the lazy, self-proclaimed, and evil ruler of Dreamland, who often gets possessed by more powerful evil beings, which leads to him fighting Kirby. Despite this, Dedede is not pure evil, and has worked together with Kirby a few times. Anime series Kirby: RIght Back At Ya has however given Dedede a more antagonistic potrayal, who legitimately wants to destroy Kirby. Dedede has made appearances in several villain wars.
