|Series||Racer Mini 4WD|
|In fictional media|
|First Appearance||Mini 4 Top|
It is featured in manga Mini 4 Top as Toppu Kudo's first machine.
The Rising Bird was the very first machine created from the Dream Attack project planned by Tamiya where everyone can design their own machine.
The Rising Bird's body is dominated by a blue color, with some white, yellow, and orange mix onto it. The body is designed to have more curves, reducing drag. A pair of wings and the T-shaped spoiler placed on rear of the car provides the downforce on the rear wheels.
The chassis, along with the high-profile spike tires, are molded in bright red, unlike the others.
In the Manga
In the manga, Toppu received the Rising Bird, though how he gets it is different in each version of the story.
In Top 2, Top 3, Top 4 and Top 5 versions of the manga, the T-wing wasn't added to the car but later added for various reasons that depended on the story version. In the Top 5 version, Toppu modified it into the light-weight version by drilling holes and patched the meshes on the cowl.
For various reasons, Toppu later replaced the Rising Bird with the Winning Bird. In Top 6 version of the manga, however, Toppu owned the Winning Bird right from the beginning.
