The Off-Roader is a yarn transformation in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. The transformation first appears in Pyramid Sands, where Kirby or Prince Fluff turn into an all-terrain vehicle and start driving as long as they accelerate. Other stages that feature the Off-Roader transformation include Dusk Dunes, Frigid Fjords, and Meta Melon Isle.
When in Off-Roader form, Kirby always competes with other opponents, referred to as Truck Monsters, to be the first one to finish the race. Kirby or Prince Fluff must use the boosts available to destroy obstacles or stomping enemies in order to avoid slowing down and losing beads. If they finish first, they are awarded a considerable amount of beads. In a two-player adventure, if either Kirby or Prince Fluff does not touch the Metamortex while the other does, they transform into a booster. The booster can help the car go faster, destroy obstacles, and plow through enemies without taking a hit. The booster gets fatigued after firing too much, and firing longer makes the duration of the exhaustion even longer. When the booster is exhausted, he cannot ignite a boost for the car.
