The Armored Vehicle is a mobile military-style automobile with jungle camouflage paint (though it is given an orange paint-job in most episodes in the 4Kids version) and an explosive cannon with a scope attached to the front, which appears in the anime series; Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. It belongs to King Dedede, who mans the cannon while Escargoon drives, and the two often use it to antagonize Kirby and the residents of Cappy Town.
The Armored Vehicle first appears in the episode Kirby Comes to Cappy Town. It appears in several subsequent episodes, and is destroyed many times throughout the course of the show. The Armored Vehicle is used continually through the series until The Kirby Derby - Part I, where it is replaced by the Royal Racecar.
