Beastman took the wreck to Doctor Clash and had him economically remodel it into an F-Zero machine.

Design and namesake


The Hyper Speeder's design is meant to be based on a fighter jet, namely, an F-15 Eagle. It has a pointed cylindrical nose with nose art resembling a mouth and eyes that connects to a rectangular backend with cooling vents on the wings, both of which are dark green. Where the two components meet is where the cockpit is, connecting to a yellow cover. At the very back are three green fins with yellow details and the engines arranged horizontally.


The Hyper Speeder combines the words hyper, the shortened term for hyperactive and speeder, a general sci-fi term to describe a fast moving hover vehicle.


Both aspects of Hyper Speeder's name relate to its performances of being an exceptionally fast vehicle.

Differences between games

In F-Zero X, the Hyper Speeder's green was a very dark and neutral green. The changes made in F-Zero GX were abundant. The tip of the nose became dark gray, two additional air intakes were added off to the sides of the cockpit with red printing, the backend became more trapezoidal, the cockpit changed from the generic design of X to a more common fighter jet design, and 26 red stars can be seen on both sides of the yellow cover. The Game Boy Advance games changed the Hyper Speeder to a blue color, replaced the gray tip and nose art with a yellow stripe, made the fin details red, and changed the cockpit to a triple pane canopy.



  • In the interview "A message for all your TV fans out there?" from F-Zero TV, Beastman said that he would be after an animal at 2,000 kilometers per hour.
    • Realistically, this speed is impossible to reach with the Hyper Speeder without Dash Zones and/or nose diving.
