|“||Jumps up very high. Charge up for quick rotation.”|
|— Wheelie Scooter's Flavor text • Kirby Air Ride|
It is very unlike the other bikes, with the best control in the game and the worst top speed. While in the air (especially after going off of something such as a ramp), the Wheelie Scooter's speed increases, making jumps vital for success. The Wheelie Scooter is best known for its excellent jump stat.
It excels in turning, charging, and jumping, but it has poor weight, defense, stamina, and offense, making it a bad choice for Destruction Derbies or Kirby Melees because it can be easily knocked around and destroyed.
In the Anime
Wheelie Scooter appears in the episode Born To Be Mild: Part 2. Kirby rides it in his race with Fang. The Wheelie Scooter's appearance is the same as in Kirby Air Ride, with one difference: its eye is more simplistic, and is orange rather than brown. After Kirby acquires the Wheel ability, he no longer needs the Wheelie Scooter, and so leaves it behind on the track.
