I like to try using as many different characters as I can when playing Smash. I usually rotate through a rather large list of characters, including Lucas, Ness, Diddy Kong, Bowser, Wario, Olimar, Ice Climbers, Jigglypuff, Pokemon Trainer, Falco, Ganondorf, or maybe try someone new. But there's one character who I always come back to, someone who I feel I can claim as my own, at least among my group of friends.
King Dedede was by far my favorite fighter in Brawl, and he'll no doubt stay my favorite fighter in Smash Bros. 4. But why do I like him so much? I mean, I never had too much investment in the Kirby series, although I do really like Kirby Super Star and Kirby 64! Still, something about Dedede just makes me love him.
He may be the bad guy, but he's just so happy!
At least in Brawl, Dedede always has a huge, infectious grin which makes me happy just looking at him! It makes me wonder how such a happy guy could be the arch-enemy of Kirby, but then again, does Dedede ever do anything truly evil in the Kirby games? Usually, when he does something bad, it's because he's been possessed by some greater evil. In fact, he's sometimes even seen helping Kirby out on his adventures. I don't think Dedede is really a villain. Perhaps he just has a healthy rivalry with Kirby.
He's a penguin! (maybe?)
Everyone likes penguins, right?
For his final smash, Dedede does the happiest dance ever!
Other characters might have giant laser beams or armored tanks or impressive sword techniques, but how does Dedede defeat his enemies? By singing and dancing! His jolly dance also summons a bunch of Waddle Dees and Waddle Doos to join in on the fun, creating a hectic mosh pit of happiness. Any fighters who can't handle the groove may find themselves overwhelmed and unceremoniously bumped out of the battle!
He has an army of friends willing to help him out!
His Waddle Dees and other friends don't just help him out during the final smash sequence, either. At any point in the battle, Dedede and summon a member of his army of friends to help him fight. They can block projectiles and other attacks, provide a distraction, and even do some damage, so they're useful for a variety of situations. Plus they're pretty adorable!
His hammer is almost as big as he is!
Seriously, look at that thing. It's massive! It's almost as big as Dedede himself, and Dedede is just about the biggest character on the roster. That means Dedede's hammer is bigger than most of the fighters he's smashing with it! Not to mention he's secretly housing some kind of dangerous mechanism inside the wooden weapon, making it even more powerful. It's truly a force to be reckoned with!
He has the most impressive belly in the Smash Bros. roster!
And he seems pretty dang proud of it too!
His "crouch" is hilarious!
Instead of crouching, Dedede strikes a seductive pose when you press the down button. It makes me laugh every time :)
So basically, Dedede is the best. I don't see many other players choose Dedede either, so he feels special to me because no one else seems to use him except for me. He's a powerful, happy, lovable penguin, and he's my favorite character in Smash!
