|“||Seeing as you were sweet enough to send us your trash, we thought we'd send you some of ours.”|
|— N.M.E. Sales Guy • Kirby: Right Back at Ya!|
Trash Basher (Duston in Japan) is a walking trash can appearing in the 81st episode of the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! anime, A Trashy Tale.
Trash Basher is a trash can monster that likes to puke garbage everywhere he goes (despite not having unlimited supplies of it to spew), and is also capable of puking what appears to be acid. Inspired by the fact that King Dedede uploaded so much trash to the fortress's command center, the N.M.E. Sales Guy sends Trash Basher to the castle, where he then starts puking trash all over King Dedede's castle and then Cappy Town. Kirby refuses to suck up any of his garbage when Dedede sics him on the monster, but a broom thrown by Meta Knight allows Kirby to transform into Clean Kirby and easily overpower Trash Basher. Getting the monster to run out of garbage to spew, Kirby then hits him with a dust-bombing attack before finishing him off with one swipe of his broom, destroying him.
Trash Basher is a trash can with greenish gray arms and legs. He wears rusty dark pink gloves and brown boots with lighter brown shoelaces, in which his gloves go up to the knuckles of his hands. Within his trash can body is disgusting garbage that he spews out to attack, along with acid-like liquid that he can spit, too. On his lid is a face with sunken-in red eyes. His lid can be opened up as a makeshift mouth for him to spew his garbage and liquid from.
Powers and Abilities
Trash Basher's primary ability is spewing out heaps of trash bags from his mouth, in ether breath-like or a burst of trash. He can also drip them in front of people as a way of grossing them out, as shown when he battled Kirby. He can also spew out a dark gray-es green colored acid-like liquid. Despite his appearance Trash Basher is surprisingly a capable fight, but unfortunately, Trash Basher has one major weakness, and that comes from his limited supplies of trash. If he runs out, Trash Basher is left completely helpless and defenseless as he has no other means of attacks.

- Trash Basher looks similar to Junker, a boss fight from an RPG game made for the Nintendo DS, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.
- Trash Basher is the first monster in Kirby: Right Back at Ya! to not be summoned by Dedede to destroy Kirby, but rather being sent down personally by the N.M.E. Sales Guy as an act of revenge on both Dedede and Escargoon for sending trash to him.
- Trash Basher is the first monster in Kirby: Right Back at Ya! to strike fear in Kirby, mostly due to his garbage being smelly, even for Kirby.
