Wheelie is a recurring enemy, who debuted in Kirby's Adventure. It resembles a tire, and gives Kirby the Wheel Copy Ability when swallowed. In the center of a Wheelie is a large, reptilian eye; the most outstanding feature separating it from tires. There is a larger subspecies of Wheelie known as Grand Wheelie. While Grand Wheelie is a mid-boss, the standard version is a regular enemy.

Game appearances

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

Adventure Wheelie.png In Kirby's Adventure and Nightmare in Dream Land, Wheelie appears as a regular enemy. In Nightmare in Dream Land, it also appears in the sub-game Quick Draw as the second opponent Kirby faces off against.

Kirby Super Star/Kirby Super Star Ultra

WheelieSSU.png In Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby is able to ride Wheelies, as well as have them as helpers. In the stage Revenge of Meta Knight, he is required to ride one of these helpers in order to complete the game.

Kirby Air Ride

Wheelies appear as common enemies in this game, can can be seen riding along various tracks in Air Ride mode, as well as appearing in Kirby Melee. They grant Kirby the Wheel ability when swallowed, though this only lasts a short time.

Wheelies also appear in the form of Air Ride Machines that can be selected, including the Wheelie Bike, Wheelie Scooter, and Rex Wheelie. King Dedede rides a special Wheelie Bike.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror & Kirby Squeak Squad

KNiD E Wheelie.png Wheelie appears in both of these games, taking on its look and function from Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.

Wheelie can be possessed by Ghost Kirby, whereupon it can be made to ride forward, acting much the same as Wheel Kirby would.


In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Wheelie can be found in every major area of the Mirror World except for Moonlight Mansion and Cabbage Cavern.

In Kirby Squeak Squad, Wheelie is a relatively rare enemy, only appearing in a few stages. However, one stage in particular (Secret Sea - Stage 5) is notable in that it only features a single Wheelie as an enemy, whereas no other stage does that with any other enemy. Wheelie can be found in the following levels and stages:

Kirby Mass Attack

While not appearing in the main game, Wheelie cameos in Kirby Quest in one of Kirby's attacks.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

A Wheelie from Triple Deluxe.

Wheelie returns in Kirby: Triple Deluxe and grants the Wheel ability once again when swallowed.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Wheelies appear again in this title, though their grander cousins do not. In addition to providing the Wheel ability as usual, they also appear out of ducts to grant the Robobot Armor with the Wheel Mode in the appropriate stages.

Kirby: Battle Royale

Main article: Blaze Wheelie

A special variety of ride-able Wheelie appears in the Attack Riders game mode. Known as Blaze Wheelie, this Wheelie is extra large and takes on the color of its rider's team. It can perform a burst attack which knocks opponents away.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

Trophy Information

"Pop quiz! What do cars have four of, bikes have two of, and this enemy would blend right in with? That's right! Tires! Your prize is...more info! Wheelie likes to charge ahead, and Kirby can ride on top when he's a helper. If Kirby inhales him, he can even turn into a tire!" "The most memorable characteristic of Wheelies is their tendency to speed right into Kirby. If Kirby inhales one, he can turn into a tyre too!Sometimes, though, they find it in their hearts to help Kirby out by adding handelbars and a seat to their frames to become Wheelie Bikes that Kirby can ride! Nice!"
