King Dedede is a major character in the Kirby series. He is usually portrayed a the main antagonist of the series, and has shown various acts of evil, such as stealing all of the food in Dream Land and breaking up the Star Rod into pieces. However, the latter of the two acts was merely to prevent the evil Cloaked Nightmare wizard from invading the Fountain of Dreams, and many of his other misdeeds are either him trying to prevent a greater evil from growing stronger, or he is possessed by an entity, usually Dark Matter. Nevertheless, he is still considered by many to be Kirby's arch-enemy.
