|— Formula Star's Flavor Text • Kirby: Air Ride|
The Formula Star is an Air Ride Machine from Kirby Air Ride. It is the fastest non-legendary machine, with a top speed of 44 mph (71 if its Top Speed stat is boosted using patches). Its name is derived from formula racing, and it even has a spoiler resembling those on formula racers, as well as similar overall mechanics to them.
Due to its terrible steering, acceleration, and charge, all of which are the worst of any machine in the game, the Formula Star is rarely used, even by experts, under any circumstance besides the Drag Race event in City Trial or Nebula Belt in Air Ride mode. To add, it also has trouble gliding.
One of the Formula Star's benefits is the massive boosts it gains in comparison to other machines when using boost pads and perfect landings. Additionally, the Formula Star retains the speed bonuses better than every other vehicle in the game (excluding the legendary ones).
In the Anime
The Formula Star appeared in the episode Air-Ride-in-Style - Part II of Kirby: Right Back at Ya!.
