Swinging Waddle Dees are enemies in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They are one of the many sub-species of Waddle Dees. They are a rare sub-species, however, some do make an appearance in White Wafers. Hence the name, Swinging Waddle Dees attack by swinging on ropes attached to platforms. Their wild swinging can serve as a hazard that Kirby (or Meta Knight, King Dedede or Bandana Waddle Dee) must avoid. If the heroes are hit by this attack, they will take damage and lose any Copy Ability they were currently using.
