  • Introduced technology in this episode: Dedede Jeep. King Dedede's personal assault vehicle, this thing's part jeep, part tank, all trouble. Assumedly, Escargoon does the driving while Dedede mans the weapons. Mostly, it just fires diminutive cannon fire, but the blasts are potent. Nightmare Enterprises Interface System. This is likely the most expensive thing in Castle Dedede, a massive internet connection to Nightmare Enterprises. Aside from hidden monitors and audio/visual contact, it also features a download device that instantly transports a monster from Nightmare's headquarters to Dedede's throne room. This also works for uploads to Nightmare.
