Article on WiKirby Whispy Woods

Whispy Woods (ウィスピーウッズ, Whispy Woods) is a boss from the Kirby universe.


Whispy Woods as he appears in Kirby Super Star.

Whispy Woods made its debut in the very first Kirby game, Kirby's Dream Land, where it is the very first boss. It has since become a series staple, appearing as the first boss in several games. Its basic attack pattern is shooting damaging puffs of air and making apples drop: unless he has a copy ability, to defeat it Kirby must Inhale the apples and spit them back at him.

In the Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

As a stage element[edit]

Whispy Woods is in the center of the backgrounds of both Dream Land and Green Greens. 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[edit]

Whispy Woods also appeared as a collectible trophy in Melee and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Trophy Description (SSBM)[edit]

The Whispy Woods trophy from Melee.

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.

Game Boy: Kirby's Dream Land

Trophy Description (SSB4)[edit]

The Whispy Woods trophy from for Wii U.

Ntsc Whispy Woods lives deep in the forest, waiting patiently for Kirby to stop by so he can share his delicious apples with the pink hero... That's not true at all, actually. Instead, he drops apples on Kirby, trying to cause him injury. He may look friendly, but remember what they say: don't judge a tree by its bark.

Pal In the heart of a beautiful green forest, Whispy Woods is waiting to give Kirby some juicy red apples. Isn't that nice? Well...not really, since he drops them on Kirby's head like bombs. If that wasn't bad enough, he'll also suck up the pink puffball and blast him with air. Note to self: be more wary of trees with faces.
