Wheelie is a regular enemy in the Kirby series.
Wheelie is a tire-shaped enemy that is currently one of the few sources of the Wheel ability. It resembles a tire with two eyes, and sometimes has bright red covering over its top half. In the games they speed right into Kirby. In Kirby Air Ride, Wheelie appears both as the classic enemy and a hyped-up Wheelie Bike version, which Kirby can ride. Wheelie also appears as a scooter like vehicle known as the Wheelie Scooter and a bigger machine called the Rex Wheelie.
Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream LandEdit
Wheelie is a common enemy in this game, and the only regular enemy that gives the Wheel ability. In this game Wheelie often speeds right into Kirby and damages him when he collides with him. If a Wheelie crashes into a wall, it will simply ride off in the opposite direction.
As well as being the second opponent in the Quick Draw minigame in Nightmare in Dreamland, a mini boss named Grand Wheelie is also fought at various points in the game.
Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star UltraEdit
Wheelie is the same as it was in it's Kirby's Adventure, but now has a completely new design when used as a helper. The enemy Wheelie is just like it was in previous games, plus it occasionally jumps a couple times before approaching. When Kirby has a Wheelie as a helper, he and the Wheelie can fight enemies separately. However, Kirby can get on top of the Wheelie and ride it like a motorcycle. For more information on the helper, see Wheelie Bike.
Enemy Wheelies play a role in a couple of the subgames. In Meta Knight's Revenge, when Kirby fights the Halberd Reactor, Wheelies can be seen racing to and fro in the background. Once the Reactor is defeated, the Wheelies escape their generators and are seen racing about the scene, though they do not harm Kirby. However, their escape stirs up a fuss among the crew members. ("The Wheelies are abandoning ship!" says Mace Knight)
In Revenge of the King (Kirby Super Star Ultra), Grand Wheelie appears as one of the henchman that Dedede summons to try and stop Kirby. Grand Wheelie also appears in the True Arena, as one of the "True" Mini-boss All Stars.
In Samurai Kirby, a sub-game, Wheelie appears as the second enemy you face.
