Derin was the King of Dream Land, the husband of Queen Diantia and the father of Dedede. He is the son of the previous king and queen of Dream Land. Derin was first mentioned, though not by name, in Kirby: Behind the Scenes 2: Drawcia's Return and Revenge during Chapter 10 by Cloud and Raven.

In Kirby: Behind the Scenes 3: Chronicles of Darkness, Derin was seen for the first time in Gerold's retelling of the Dark Matter Cataclysm.


Being Dedede's father, Derin looks much like his son but Derin's beak has a pointed tip instead of a rounded one. Derin is a Billow Bird that is light blue in color with a yellow beak with a pointed tip as mentioned earlier and he has yellow feet. He has dark blue eyes and he wears a striped shirt with a pale light green and a light green stripe in a repeating pattern, lime green pants, a green cape that meets at his neck with a medallion that has his family's emblem and hat with pale yellow rims.

There is a emerald with a gold rim and a yellow crown on top of his hat. He had a scar on his face that he got from Dark Matter Knight.
