Bandana Dee is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He is the alternate version of Waddle Dee and was confirmed on September 13, 2019 along with the other characters who could have been confirmed in the Super Smash Bros. series.
Bandana Waddle Dee first appeared as an opponent in the Kirby Super Star mini-game Megaton Punch. However, Bandana Dee's first plot-important appearance was in Kirby Super Star Ultra, as said game expands and defines his role in the sub-game Revenge of the King. He acted as the adviser and second-in-command to King Dedede during Kirby's re-infiltration of Castle Dedede. He is shown to be incredibly loyal to King Dedede, to the point of imploring him not to fight Kirby for Dedede's security. After Kirby defeated King Dedede's best minions, he pits Bandana Dee against Kirby, much to his dismay, as he knows he stands little to no chance against the pink puff. Dedede decides to spare him, but he still goes ahead to stop Kirby regardless, out of pure loyalty to his king. Although Kirby appears to kill him in their confrontation, he would later appear in the sub-game alive and healthy, watching Kirby take on Masked Dedede. He is the only one to witness the fight. An interesting detail is that he waves cheerfully when Kirby or his Helper gets hurt. He also appears walking beside the King in the sub-game's credits. He later reappeared in Kirby's Return to Dream Land as a playable character where he helped Kirby, Meta Knight, King Dedede, and Magolor repair the Lor Starcutter. He used a spear for a weapon just like Spear Kirby. Bandana Dee also appears as Kirby's main ally in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, being a playable character for a second and third player, he can assist Kirby by picking him up and tossing him up to the other player, allowing him to overcome obstacles.
