Bandana Dee was originally released from an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Flash 2. Once out, he would attempt to charge at opponents, most likely in the common way Waddle Dees behave in the Kirby games. Bandana Dee was very weak, even his charge was weak; and was one of the few Assist Trophies that can be attacked and defeated. For his early appearance in SSF2 as an Assist Trophy, Bandana Dee had a "W" emblem on his bandana, something he did not have in Kirby Super Star, its remake or its eventual playable counterpart (which had it replaced with King Dedede's emblem). Developer, Steven said this stood for "Waddle".
