The Mighty Hurricane is Roger Buster's F-Zero racing machine. The machine originally belonged to one of the racing teams that dissolved after the big accident four years ago when the Grand Prix was discontinued for a time. Oddly enough, every member of that team has since been reported as missing. The machine itself is has strong boost and gripping ability, but its lack of a strong body requires Roger Buster to avoid frequent contact with other machines.

It's said that this machine was the product of one of the racing teams that was forced to dissolve four years ago when the F-Zero Grand Prix races were discontinued. Strangely, every single member of that racing team is currently missing. The boost and grip capabilities of the Mighty Hurricane are relatively high, but there are some faults with its body strength. Since it has weaknesses like any lightweight machine, it requires a pilot with excellent control skills who is able to avoid frequent contact with other machines.

F-Zero: GP Legend

The Mighty Hurricane becomes available after clearing the platinum cup on novice or higher. It's rather slow to accelerate but is quite fast and corners decently.

F-Zero Climax

The Mighty Hurricane becomes available after winning the gold cup on novice overall.

Design and namesake

Design

The Mighty Hurricane is a large and optimally designed vehicle. In the center is the main body that contains a long, thin nose with a cooling vent on the tip and a wide rear that houses the lone engine. In the middle of it is the cockpit. Off to the sides are rectangular arms that are just slightly shorter the main frame's length that have vents on both ends. The arms are connected close to the rear with cooling vents on the front of the connectors. The machine is colored cyan with yellow stripes on the arms.

Name

The Mighty Hurricane is comprised of the words mighty, meaning very powerful and hurricane, a tropical storm that occurs in the Atlantic Ocean.

Correlation

The Mighty Hurricane's name isn't really meant to reflected on its design. The mighty aspect is meant to reflect upon the vehicle's great performances.

Differences between games

The big change made to the Mighty Hurricane was during its transition from F-Zero X to F-Zero GX where the arms got thicker and gained black areas near the connectors and the machine's color changed from a darker blue.
