In the Super Smash Bros. series
 As a stage element
Whispy Woods is in the center of the backgrounds of both the Dream Land stage in Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee and the Green Greens stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He will sometimes blow a powerful stream of air from his mouth towards one side of the stage, pushing any characters caught in the wind away from the center of the stage. On Green Greens, Whispy will also shake apples from its branches - the apples have a variety of different effects: If an apple hits a character as it falls to the ground, that character will take damage, and when an apple lands, it becomes either a healing item or a throwing weapon.
 As a trophy
Whispy Woods also appeared as a collectible trophy in Melee.
 Trophy Description
A boss enemy from Kirby's Dream Land. Whispy Woods is a big tree that shoots whirlwinds at Kirby. It isn't the toughest enemy: all Kirby has to do is avoid the occasional whirlwind, suck in apples that fall down, and then shoot them back at the tree. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Whispy Woods is quite the blowhard.
