Whispy Woods (ウィスピーウッズ) is a large apple tree whose most common attack is dropping apples from his branches. He generally appears as a boss, usually the first one in many Kirby games and the first boss to appear in the Kirby series. 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 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's 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's apples. Dedede continues to constantly try to build his golf course and destroying the trees during the series, while Whispy becomes Kirby's ally, later, in the series, Dedede become Kirby's ally too.
Whispy 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 Super Smash Flash 2, it appears as a hazard in the stage Dream Land. 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.
