Red Boxes can be broken by running into them, Quick Spinning into them, or attacking them with an ability. Having a machine with high Offense and/or high speed will cause the boxes to break easier. Red Boxes often contain Copy Panels that give Kirby a Copy Ability to use for a limited time. Red Boxes appear about as often as Blue Boxes.
In some matches, Red Boxes will appear containing Dragoon and/or Hydra pieces—they are the only boxes in which these pieces can be found. It's impossible to tell which Red Boxes contain Copy Abilities and which contain Dragoon/Hydra pieces, other than in certain events (What's In the Box? and Item Bounce, where boxes that contain Dragoon/Hydra pieces don't spin or bounce respectively). The Red Boxes that have the Dragoon/Hydra parts also won't vanish after a certain amount of time, like all the other boxes do. There are also certain locations in the City where Red Boxes with Legendary pieces will appear; these include places where boxes don't usually appear, such as below the volcanic area and in the cave below Whispy Woods, as well as at other certain hotspots (see Legendary Air Ride Machine#Locating Parts for more information).
