Cheats & Guides

Kirby Air Ride Cheats For GameCube

  1. Special stat boost(city trial)

    Every once in a while when you are doing the city trail mode, a special icon will appear, and it will be worth one of everything. This is confirmed to happen on the 5th time you play.

  2. Extra Easy Stats

    In City Trial, there is a star that if you hit, a lot of stats come out. The Star is in the air so you'll need a flying machine to do this. Go on the teleporter that brings you up to the building. Then fly onto the top of that two layered yellow thing that is facing the star. Then fly into the star, and stats will fly out.

    Note:You can only do this once every City Trial Run.

  3. Easy Stats

    In City Trial, when the UFO comes, it may seem like it is just there for show, but there are stats on it. Hop into the Volcano and it will fly you to the platform in the sky. When the UFO is below the platform, go on it and get all the stats.
