The Blue Falcon is Captain Falcon's vehicle in the F-Zero series. It is one of the most well-rounded vehicles in the racing tour. The Blue Falcon's machine number was originally 111,[1] but in F-Zero X, the number had changed to 07. No explanation for this was ever given, although "111" is binary for 7. During an interview with Mr. Zero, the race announcer, in F-Zero GX Captain Falcon commented that if he wins the Grand Prix, he will use the prize money to build a new machine called the "Neo Blue Falcon".[2] Thanks to the efforts of its pilot, even a novice could perform well in this vehicle. With a well-defended body, average boost power and good grip, the Blue Falcon is well balanced and impeccably tuned. Captain Falcon knows every inch of his machine and can make it perform as though it has the best ratings.[3] In the anime F-Zero: GP Legend, the Blue Falcon has only one thruster instead of four. In F-Zero: Maximum Velocity, a second version of the Blue Falcon, known as Falcon MK-2, can be unlocked. This vehicle is piloted by Kent Akechi, who claims to be the son of Captain Falcon.

Despite being called the Blue Falcon GT, the logo remains unchanged from the previous version of the machine.

Profiles and statistics[edit]


The Blue Falcon is one of the four cars in the original F-Zero. It has the second best acceleration and cornering with some slight stability issues, slow speed and weak armor. It always starts in second.

In F-Zero GX, the Blue Falcon is available in blue, red, green, or black colors.

Thanks to the efforts of its pilot, Captain Falcon, the Blue Falcon is well-balanced and impeccably tuned. With relative little training, even a novice racer could perform well in this machine. The engine it utilizes was built especially for Captain Falcon and is perfectly compatible with the fuselage.

F-Zero: GP Legend[edit]

The Blue Falcon is available from the start of F-Zero: GP Legend. It has rather good cornering and acceleration with a slightly slow speed.

F-Zero Climax[edit]

The Blue Falcon is available from the start of F-Zero Climax. Rick Wheeler drives a different Blue Falcon after winning the silver cup on master overall.

Other appearances[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Main article: Super Smash Bros. Brawl
The Blue Falcon appearing as Captain Falcon's Final Smash.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Blue Falcon appears as Captain Falcon's Final Smash, which can be executed once he has broken a Smash Ball. Upon activation, the Blue Falcon will fly by quickly in front of Captain Falcon. If any opponents are hit by the Blue Falcon, they are launched onto the Port Town race track. The Blue Falcon will race down the track at high speeds, and ram into the opponents, sending them flying. At high percentages, the attack is most likely a one-hit K.O.

Captain Falcon also arrives in the Blue Falcon in the beginning of a Brawl. It swerves round to the stage and Captain Falcon jumps out. Then, the canopy closes and it races off. This also happens in Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo 64.

In Brawl, Captain Falcon's on-screen appearance in the Subspace Emissary also involves the Blue Falcon. After Captain Olimar and his Pikmin got terrified by a giant R.O.B., a red Pikmin points out the Blue Falcon, which opens its canopy and Captain Falcon jumps off (Or gets ejected) and Falcon Punches the R.O.B.. The Blue Falcon does not appear in any place after this.

Captain Falcon's Final Smash. His beloved ship, the Blue Falcon, roars onto the screen once he touches a foe in front of him. The enemy gets sent to a racetrack, at which point the Blue Falcon screams down at a ridiculous speed and launches the unlucky victim. What track is it? Where did the machine come from? This is one technique that's an utter mystery. Clear All-Star Mode as Captain Falcon.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

In both versions of the game, the Blue Falcon appears as part of Captain Falcon's Final Smash once more. The Blue Falcon also appears in the 16-bit form at the Mute City stage for the 3DS version.

NTSC-U: The trademark vehicle of famed bounty hunter Captain Falcon. Both of their names refer to the bird's ability to swoop in and capture its prey—a subtle nod to Captain Falcon's bounty-hunting exploits. The Blue Falcon itself is a well-rounded vehicle, allowing the pilot's talent to really show.

PAL: The trademark vehicle of famed bounty hunter Captain Falcon. The "Falcon" in both of their names refers to the bird's ability to swoop in and capture its prey at speed, which, of course, alludes to the Captain's bounty-hunting exploits. The Blue Falcon itself is a well-rounded vehicle, allowing the talents of its pilot to speak for themselves.

Blue Falcon
Captain Falcon's Final Smash lets him pull opponents into the middle of an F-Zero race-where competitors have been known to break the speed of sound-and run them over with his racing machine, the Blue Falcon. If he manages to grab you, there's no escape. The impact launches its victims diagonally upward. Clear All-Star Mode as Captain Falcon.

Mario Kart series[edit]

The Blue Falcon also appears as an unlockable lightweight kart in Mario Kart Wii, being unlocked after winning the Mirror Lightning Cup, resembling the appearance from F-Zero GX. It has the best speed out of the Small character class, average acceleration and drifting, but poor stats everywhere else. Each character's color scheme is unique, but only Baby Mario, Toad, or the Male Mii will make the Blue Falcon identical to that of Captain Falcon's.

It reappears as a downloadable kart part for Mario Kart 8, being part of the first of two DLC packs for the game, released in November 2014[4]. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it is randomly unlocked by collecting coins.

Stats in Mario Kart Wii[edit]

  • Speed: 60/80
  • Weight: 29/80
  • Acceleration: 35/80
  • Handling: 29/80
  • Drift: 43/80
  • Off-road: 24/80
  • Mini-turbo: 29/80

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]
