I don't really use Dedede that much anymore. I usually only play Brawl + while on campus and since Dedede is gimped into near uselessness in it I stick to Peach and Kirby who can combo the hell out of people and can chain into KOs easily.
Dedede is a lot of, OK! He got near me sooo f-tilt, or B-air! Time to KO! U-tilt! He's not near me, so float around and maybe chuck a Dee....
Kinda boring after awhile :/
