Drill[1] is an item which appears in the Top Ride mode of Kirby Air Ride. It appears randomly during standard races, dropping onto the course. When touched by a racer, his vehicle is equipped with a drill bit on the front, which allows him to strike and knock back rivals in front of him.

The Drill can be shaken off using a Quick Spin. It can also be removed if the racer enters a stage hazard, or about 8 seconds after gaining the item.
