He, along with the other clowns at N.M.E., is the Demon Beast that trains the newer Demon Beasts, such as Poppy Bros. Jr. and Mr. Frosty. Whippy is seemingly the ring leader of the training school, and oversees the others. The whip he uses delivers a powerful electric shock that can turn even the friendliest of Demon Beasts into violent ones. When Phan–Phan escapes from Nightmare Enterprises, King Dedede orders Whippy to take care of it. Both the king and Whippy head to the lake where Phan–Phan, Kirby, and his friends are. Whippy pops up and grabs Phan–Phan by the trunk with his whip, then reels him in and starts shocking him. Kirby runs up to his elephant friend only to get repelled. After Whippy stops shocking him, Kirby approaches Phan–Phan. Phan–Phan knocks him away and Whippy jumps on top of him, ordering him to chase Kirby. During the chase, Whippy maniacally juggles atop Phan Phan's head. When he corners him, Whippy throws spiked balls onto Phan Phan's trunk. The balls enlarged and get thrown. Kirby finally inhales one of them and becomes Throw Kirby. Throw Kirby gets a hold of Whippy and starts bashing him against the tree in the center of town. Kirby uses his Tornado Throw attack and throws Whippy into space, where he is destroyed when he gets sucked into a black hole.
Whippy is a crazed circus clown that juggles knives, spiked balls, and regular circus balls. He wears a striped suit adorned with a frilly, ruffled collar, pointed shoes, and a spotted red party hat. He has curly green hair and has face paint, much like Perot. He carries a blue whip where ever he goes. He also has a maniacal laugh and screeches his own name.
- Whippy is one of the few Demon Beasts that do not explode, similar to Honker Stomper, Popon and few others.
- Whippy is also one of the few Demon Beasts that can talk.
