Whispy Woods is a character from the Kirby universe.
In the Super Smash Bros. series
As a stage element
Whispy Woods is in the center of both the Dream Land stage in Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee and the Green Greens stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He will blow a powerful stream of air from his mouth towards one side of the stage, pushing any characters caught in the wind away from the center of the stage. On Green Greens in Melee, Whispy will also shake apples from its branches - the apples have a variety of different effects: If an apple hits a character as it falls to the ground, that character will take damage, and when an apple lands, it becomes either a healing item or a throwing weapon.
As a trophy
Whispy Woods also appeared as a collectible trophy in Melee and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
A boss enemy from Kirby's Dream Land. Whispy Woods is a big tree that shoots whirlwinds at Kirby. It isn't the toughest enemy: all Kirby has to do is avoid the occasional whirlwind, suck in apples that fall down, and then shoot them back at the tree. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Whispy Woods is quite the blowhard.

In Smash 4
Whispy Woods lives deep in the forest, waiting patiently for Kirby to stop by so he can share his delicious apples with the pink hero... That's not true at all, actually. Instead, he drops apples on Kirby, trying to cause him injury. He make look friendly, but remember what they say; don't judge a tree by its bark.

The stage references Whispy Woods appearing as both the background character and the stage hazard. It also references Whispy’s debut in Kirby’s Dream Land, as he is the boss of the Green Greens level.
Also, the music playing (Boss Theme Medley - Kirby Series) references Whispy Woods’ status as a boss in the Kirby series.
