|— Wagon Star's Flavor text • Kirby Air Ride|
The Wagon Star is an Air Ride Machine in Kirby Air Ride. It resembles a wagon, as the name suggests. It is known for not being able to charge and for being the only Air Ride Machine that is able to survive a single hit from the Hydra's attack.
The Wagon Star has excellent acceleration and handling (has the second best handling in the game, behind only the Jet Star and tied with the Compact Star), and above-average Top Speed. It can neither charge nor boost, however, and has poor Glide.
The computer AI in Kirby Air Ride sees the Wagon Star as the best vehicle in the game, and they do quite well with it in Air Ride. In City Trial, the first Air Ride Machine the computer AI will look for is the Wagon Star. This is also the case with the Shadow Star.
- By holding Down on the Control Stick while driving on the ground, the Wagon Star actually slows down. This trait is unique to the Wagon Star.
- The Wagon Star's design appears to be inspired by the traditional Chinese take-out container.
- It has a kanji character on the side of it (「颱」) that means typhoon.
