Whispy Woods (ウィスピーウッズ) is recurring boss character, usually the first one faced in many Kirby games since his first appearance in Kirby's Dream Land.

Character description

Whispy Woods is depicted as a large apple tree whose most common attack is dropping apples from his branches. Also, in Kirby Super Star (and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra) there exists a related pair of creatures named Twin Woods, and they can be found in Milky Way Wishes, Revenge of Meta Knight, Meta Knightmare Ultra, The Arena, and Helper to Hero. In Revenge of the King, Whispy Woods comes back as Whispy's Revenge. This time, its leaves are purple and it can drop poisonous apples and worms. It can also drop Gordos like Twin Woods, and shoot gusts of wind and small twisters.

The anime in Kirby: Right Back At Ya! features him as the king of the forest in Dream Land. Whispy is several hundred years old, and very wise, though he has a bit of a temper. He is very kind to his friends, but shows no mercy to those that threaten his kingdom. At first, he believes Kirby and his friends are intruders when they build a campfire around him. It turns out to be a setup by King Dedede, who wants to destroy Whispy and the others trees to build a golf course. After most of the forest is cut down, it is revived by one of Whispy Woods's apples. Dedede continues to constantly try to build his golf course and destroying the trees during the series, while Whispy Woods becomes Kirby's ally, later, in the series, Dedede become Kirby's ally too.

Whispy Woods makes appearances in the Super Smash Bros. series. He can be seen in Kirby-based stages, blowing wind at the characters and dropping apples.

In the Super Smash Flash series

In Super Smash Flash

In Super Smash Flash, Whispy Woods appears in the background on the stage Dream Land. He is not a stage hazard because, much like all hazards, it was too hard to code at the time the game was created, so he is merely a decoration. The face he makes is based off of his Kirby's Dream Land 3 second phase appearance.

In Super Smash Flash 2

In Super Smash Flash 2, he reprises his role as a stage hazard in the stage Dream Land this time around. Much like he does in official Super Smash Bros. games, he will occasionally blow wind in one direction at a time, which can push players away from him.
