Whispy Woods (also known simply as Whispy) is a recurring boss in the Kirby series. Whispy is a gigantic tree that is usually immobile and is known for dropping apples on Kirby. He can also blow air puffs and sometimes may even shoot his roots.

Whispy Woods is often regarded as the easiest boss in the Kirby series next to King Golem. This is mostly due to him being the first boss usually in almost every Kirby game and that he is immobile and doesn't really have a variety of attacks.


Kirby's Dream LandEdit

Whispy's first appearance was in Kirby's Dream Land for the Game Boy. Kirby encountered him at the end of Green Greens. Kirby must inhale his apples that he drops and spit them back at him to damage him. Whispy will also spit out air puffs, which Kirby cant inhale. Whispy then appears at Mt. Dedede where Kirby has to defeat all of the bosses again in order to proceed to King Dedede.

In Extra Mode, Whispy will be able to move faster and drop Gordos in addition to apples.

Also his sharp nose can take away two HP from Kirby.

Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream LandEdit

In Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Whispy Woods again served as the first boss of the game. He is the boss of Vegetable Valley. He holds a piece of the Star Rod, given to him by King Dedede when Nightmare invades Dream Land. The only difference between the battle from the first game and this is that Kirby may use a copy ability. Also Whispy's pointy nose will no longer damage Kirby.

Kirby's Dream Land 2Edit

Whispy once again is the first boss fought in the game. He is fought at the end of Grass Land. He is, howver, fought in two rounds. The first round consists of him wearing a strange mask with glasses and the second is Whispy without it. Whispy also gained the ability to shoot his roots at Kirby. Once his mask has fallen off, he'll be able to shoot out air puffs, too.

In the bonus game for world 1, Whispy will shoot out apples and stars. Kirby has to collect the stars but avoid the apples or he loses.

Multiple Whispy Woods will serve as bumpers and will injure Kirby and sending him bouncing off soon after. They can only be beaten with the Spark ability.

During the events of The Revenge of Meta Knight, Kirby encounters a variation of Whispy Woods called Twin Woods. Twin Woods is fought right after a fight with the regular Whispy Woods.

In Kirby Super Star Ultra, a new game is added called Revenge of the King. Whispy Woods makes an appearance as the first boss of this game but is a stronger version called Whispy's Revenge. He spits out tornados instead of air puffs and in addition to apples he drops caterpillars and Gordos. The apples also can poison Kirby.

In the minigame Card Swipe, Whispy appears on a card.

Kirby's Dream Land 3Edit

Whispy Woods is once again the boss of Grass Land in Kirby's Dream Land 3. This time he has been distrubed by King Dedede's mischief like all the other bosses. This time Whispy spits out variosu vegetables that Kirby must inhale and spit back at him. If Kirby comes in contact with Whispy's nose he loses health. Whispy may occassionally shoot out an air puff at Kirby.

After taking four hits from Kirby, Whispy will become angry and mobile. His roots will act as legs and chase Kirby, still spitting out fruit and vegetables in the process. After four more hits, Whispy is defeated.

If Kirby obtains all of the Heart Stars after fighting Whispy the first time, he will be cured of his anger and will no longer attack Kirby if he enters the boss stage again. In Boss Butch, Whispy's arena looks like it takes place in autumn.
