The Speed Burst is an item in the Platform Racing series can be gotten by bumping an item block.


Once players activate a Speed Burst, a green trail surrounds their avatar for the next 6 seconds (9 if they're wearing a Winged Helmet) while their speed is immensely boosted, allowing for them to quickly catch up to other players or increase their lead.

While the item itself disappears after being activated in the original game, the sequels would have it remain until the burst runs out.


The first two games gave the item a circular ball appearance with a green glow surrounding two arrows, with second adding a black-to-white gradient inside the arrows. PR3 maintained the shape, but opted for a yellow and brown ball with 2 different styled green arrows instead. Despite the changes, it's the item most faithful to its original design in the game.
