|— Rex Wheelie's Flavor Text • Kirby Air Ride|
The Rex Wheelie is much larger than a regular Wheelie Bike, with a more aggressive fascia, which resembles the mouth of a Tyrannosaurus rex. Its name references the Latin word "rex", which means "king".
Complimenting its large frame are well-above average offense, defense, weight, and top speed stats, but poor handling, acceleration (the second worst, after the Formula Star's), charging speed, and jump. Given this, it is ideally used in the Destruction Derby and Kirby Melee events in City Trial mode and is a poor choice for races. It is unlocked by defeating 100 enemies with exhaled stars.
