— Collection Lists description of Attack Riders.

KBR Attack Riders icon.png Attack Riders is one of the ten Battle types in Kirby Battle Royale. It pits contestants against each-other in a looping circular arena where the goal is to obtain the most chips, stealing them from opponents by attacking them, or ramming them with a vehicle.

Rules and gameplay[edit]

You can drive speedy vehicles in one of the battles. Sounds fun!
— Waddle Dee in Kirby Battle Royale

Contestants are placed in a circular arena, locked to looping around it in two dimensions. The game can be played either in teams or in free-for-all. Each contestant starts with 100 chips, and has to gain more by stealing them from rivals. This can be done by attacking them, either with Copy Abilities, or with a vehicle that appears every now and then on the stage. This vehicle will either be a Blaze Wheelie or an Electro Shock Tank, which attack in different manners. Attacking using the vehicles will deal greater damage and drop more chips from the enemies, but a single hit will cause the rider to fall off. If two opposing riders ram into each-other using Blaze Wheelies, they will rebound off each-other, and neither rider will be knocked off. Likewise, if two riders on Electro Shock Tanks fire a shot at the other, both projectiles will eventually cancel out.

Like most other battle modes, contestants have health, and losing all of it will cause them to be KO'd and temporarily removed from the arena.


There are two stages available for Attack Riders. They are as follows:

Stages in Attack Rider
Name Intro Gameplay Description
Attack Biker KBR Attack Riders Stage 1.png KBR Attack Riders Stage 1 Gameplay.png The stage contains two platform decks which hang over the floor that can be dropped through. Every so often, a Blaze Wheelie is dropped into the arena.

The Blaze Wheelie can be used to ram opponents at very high speed using a special attack.

Attack Tanker KBR Attack Riders Stage 2.png KBR Attack Riders Stage 2 Gameplay.png The stage has no auxiliary platforms, and consists only of a circular floor. Every so often, an Electro Shock Tank is dropped into the arena.

The Electro Shock Tank is somewhat slow, but it fires powerful rounds of energy that can be charged for greater effect.

Battle Bonuses[edit]

The following Battle Bonuses can be awarded in Single Player or local Multiplayer Battle Mode:

  • Nimble Runner: Got hit the least by vehicle attacks!
  • Survival Rider: Rode vehicles for the longest time!
  • Ride Sideswiper: Knocked rivals out of vehicles the most!
  • Ruthless Rider: Struck others with vehicle attacks the most!
