A huge part of Kirby and the Forgotten Land is collecting Waddle Dees. While you get some for completing specific tasks, each level also has hidden caged Waddle Dees to find. Our Kirby and the Forgotten Land Everbay Coast Waddle Dee location guide lists out where to find each hidden Waddle Dee per level.

Some Waddle Dees can be seen in plain sight, whereas others are in secret rooms or locked up behind challenges. Each level has three to five caged Waddle Dees, and some of them can be pretty easy to miss. Keep your eyes out for hidden paths and the like to find them all.


Abandoned Beach (3 Waddle Dees)

Waddle Dee #1: Climb up the ladder after the Wild Bonkers boss and use the hammer ability on the wooden peg.

Waddle Dee #2: Climb up the wall where the dog is sleeping and use hammer on the wooden peg to open a secret path that leads to this Waddle Dee.
