The Twin Noritta is Gomar & Shioh's F-Zero Machine. It is unusual not only for having two cockpits, but also for being incredibly light in spite of this. The reason is due to the machine being made of a special metal unique to Gomar and Shioh's home world of Huckmine, called wakamili. This makes the vessel light, but also not as durable as other machines. As a result, their machine is best when it can stay ahead of other racers and avoid being pushed into walls, which is complemented by its stellar boost. It is the lightest F-Zero machine in the series.

|While the Twin Noritta is built to accommodate two pilots, it's encased in wakamili, an extremely light special metal found on Huckmine. As a result, the craft is miraculously lightweight. However, for the same reason, the body structure is weak, making it ideal for a pilot who can travel at very high speeds without being pushed into the walls by other racers.|
F-Zero: GP Legend
The Twin Noritta becomes available after maxing out Captain Falcon's prize money in Story mode at $255,000,000. It has the strongest acceleration and cornering capabilities while suffering from the weakest top speed.
The Twin Noritta becomes available after winning the platinum cup on novice overall.
Design and namesake
The Twin Noritta takes on a very unique vehicle design. It's comprised of two identical pods connected together with a slab of metal in the middle. Both pods are long, narrow builds with a downward slope, triangular vent in the front, a large canopy near the middle, an engine right behind the cockpit and a checkerboard pattern fin up top. Gomar sits in the left cockpit and Shioh sits in the right. The machine is primarily a dark gray with a blue stripe running down the middle of the pods.
The Twin Noritta combines the words twin, something consisting of two matching or corresponding parts and noritta, derived from nori, edible seaweed.
From the machine's unique design, the Twin Noritta is meant to relate to its twin aspect heavily as both sides are identical components to the car. Noritta's derivative from nori correlates with Gomar and Shioh's names relating to Japanese cuisine.
Differences between games
When the Twin Noritta was introduced in F-Zero X, the top fins' checkerboard pattern was black and white. Starting in F-Zero GX, the black would change to blue which would also change color with alternate coloring but only in the aforementioned game. Also unique to GX are color coordinated canopies and engines; cyan on the right and magenta on the left. F-Zero: GP Legend made the outer sides of the pods more wide near the canopies and made the fins smaller.
- The machine’s number 22 is likely a reference to how it is controlled by 2 people.
