Kracko orb 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, the item will fly into the air, and transform into Kracko. From there, Kracko seeks out a random opponent, and zaps them, rendering that opponent unable to move for the duration of the effect. Any other opponents nearby who approach the target being zapped will also get shocked. Kracko will do this one - to - four times before flying away from the race.
Once picked up, the Kracko orb is used right away, allowing the racer to immediately pick up another item.
Kracko appears and zaps a couple unfortunate racers.
