Wheel Mode is one of the Robobot Armor modes. It transforms Kirby's mech into a three-wheeled racecar, granting it extra speed and the ability to jump between foreground and background at will.

Moveset

  • This is called 'Full Turbo Accel' in the Japanese version.
Speed Burst

The armor can jump during 'Turbo Accelerate' too.
  • This is called 'Full Turbo Jump' in the Japanese version.

Trivia

  • Unlike most armor modes, Wheel Mode cannot be discarded.
  • This is the only ability or mode so far that allows Kirby to jump between foreground and background without the use of a 3D Warp Star.
  • The Wheel Mode is not capable of driving in reverse. This is confirmed by a Robobot Armor pop quiz.[1]
