The Winged Star excels at gliding, losing to the legendary machines ([[Dragoon]] and [[Hydra]]), [[Meta Knight]], and the [[Flight Warp Star]] (which can only be played in Free Mode in City Trial). Its defensive and offensive stats are poor, but it has acceptable turning, boost, and charging speed. It is also one of the lightest machines in the game.

The Winged Star is not preferred in Air Ride courses where there are few ramps to take off or if the ramps are far away from each other.

In the anime

The Winged Star appeared in Kirby: Right Back At Ya! in two episodes. The first time an Air Rider attacked Kirby with his flail destroying the Rocket Star, but Kirby turns into Iron Kirby by inhaling his flail, destroying him. While this was all a dream, he later steals a real Winged Star in which he uses for the rest of the episode.
