At the E3 2014 presentation, artwork of four Bandana Waddle Dees was shown during Kirby and the Rainbow Curse’s announcement. One of these colored Waddle Dees, the cyan one, went unused in the final game. Kirby and the Rainbow Curse was likely intended to feature 5-player co-op, a feature in Wii U software that was growing at the time. Based on the cyan Waddle Dee's position in the artwork, he may have been Player 3, making Player 4 yellow and Player 5 green.
