King Dedede is the main antagonist/anti-hero of the Kirby series and Kirby's arch-frenemy. He is most known in the SiIvaGunner community for his participation in the two King for a Day Tournaments. He was selected as a popular fan submission, being #1 overall in the ballot.
Revealed as the 13th fighter of the tourney, his rips would associate boss themes from the Kirby series, like Mt. Dedede or Hyness, Magolor, etc. He could also use material from the Kirby: Right Back At Ya! television series.
Dedede would have a noteworthy run during the tournament, facing both Weird Al and Etika in the 1st and 2nd rounds, respectively, and winning each match. It wasn't until his semifinal match against Unregistered HyperCam 2 that his reign would come to an end.

- "After his loss in the last tournament, King Dedede has decided it’s time to reveal his secret weapons… his brand-new Dedede Hammer, and a cool mask to boot! He’s once again determined to win the right to truly call himself a king… and ready to eat his way through our entire tournament budget, too. Asshole."
- —King Dedede's description on the MOJO!!
King Dedede returns with a new design based on his Masked Dedede look from Kirby Super Star Ultra, and a complete change in source list that now involves any kind of music from the Kirby series, not just boss themes.
In Round 1, King Dedede was up against Off the Hook ft. Paruko and managed to take a victory. In Round 2, he faced Jack Bros, and was knocked to the Loser's Bracket. In Round 2 of the Loser's Bracket, he faced Papyrus, and his reign once again came to an end.
