The Royal Racecar[1] is a custom-designed limousine-like racecar which King Dedede purchased from Night Mare Enterprises to replace his Armored Vehicle in the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! episode The Kirby Derby - Part I. The car is very luxurious, and despite its unwieldy length is very agile and quick. It is also equipped with many concealed weapons, including a missile launcher and "hub-saw". The racecar is rimmed with a gold chassis that bears a small ornament on the front of the hood which resembles King Dedede. Its main body paint is white on the hood and dark green at the seating area. It has a convertible roof which is usually left open.

After introducing the Royal Racecar in The Kirby Derby - Part I, all subsequent episodes (barring the out-of-order episodes A Recipe for Disaster and A Dental Dilemma in the 4Kids version) feature this vehicle in place of the Armored Vehicle, which is presumably retired. Like the Armored Vehicle, the Royal Racecar is repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt throughout the course of the series.

List of weapons[edit]

The Royal Racecar can deploy the following weapons and deterrents:

  • Missile launcher
  • "Hub-saw"
  • Bomb-lobbing arm
  • Pressurized hose
  • Cal-trips
  • Smokescreen
  • Oil slick
  • Hammer arm
  • Gatling gun
  • Grabber arm


The Royal Racecar is used in the following episodes:


  • In the Japanese version of The Kirby Derby - Part I, N.M.E. Sales Guy describes the Royal Racecar as a "monster on wheels" (translated). This has led to some confusion as to whether or not the car should be counted as a monster in the series. However, since it does not appear to have any self-agency, the saying was likely just a means of boasting about the car's destructive capabilities.
  • The coloration used for the Royal Racecar's mirrors is the same as the hammer wielded by King Dedede's Revenge in Kirby's Blowout Blast. It is unknown whether or not this was intentional.
