Wapods are enemies in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They are Waddle Dee-like ghosts with no arms and a long tail. These enemies have the same face as a Waddle Dee. Wapods are quite rare in the game, however, some appear in White Wafers and a few later levels. Wapods live in small red and white, genie-like pots. When Kirby and his buddies (Meta Knight, King Dedede, Bandana Waddle Dee) near their pot, a Wapod will come out of the pot and fly up high into the air. Any hero who comes in contact with a Wapod out of its pot will take damage. If one of the heroes defeats a Wapod, another one will come out of its pot shortly after. Because of that, the only way to stop all Wapods from appearing is by destroying their pots with attacks. Wapods are also known to come in giant sizes, though they are not as giant as most other giant enemies. The name of Wapods' pots are found in the game's coding. They are known as "Wapod Pots". It is to note that though Wapods resemble ghost versions of Waddle Dees without arms, there is no relation between the two enemies.
