|Hop on your bike, Wheelie Rider! Go for a drive with a friend. Use teamwork to roll ahead!|
— Super Star Ultra quote
Kirby can also obtain the Wheelie Rider ability through Copy Essences Deluxe; but he must first create the helper to ride. Kirby cannot create any helpers from this ability. Kirby's visual appearance changes by the addition of a motorcycling hat and goggles. Using Wheelie Rider, Kirby can move very quickly, much more so than on the standard Wheel ability. This ability is given to Kirby by default in the very last section of Revenge of Meta Knight, when he is escaping the falling Halberd.

|*You can slide down or climb ladders while riding|
In co-op mode, player 1 controls Kirby while player 2 controls the Wheelie. This means that player 2 handles the steering, while player 1 gains a new move to compensate: the ability to fire Star Shots. These shots can be fired with the standard attack button and aimed in any of the eight cardinal directions. They are somewhat smaller than ordinary Star Bullets and fizzle out much more quickly, but they are a comparatively powerful weapon that become especially useful during Boss fights.
