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.

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!
