Blue Falcon

Captain Falcon's F-Zero machine, the Blue Falcon.

Captain Falcon races in an F-Zero machine named the Blue Falcon. This racer 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). It might be of worthy note that "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] The Blue Falcon appears as an unlockable lightweight kart in Mario Kart Wii.

Captain Falcon has another vehicle, called the Falcon Flyer. This is a speedy, mid-sized star cruiser boasting an on-board computer. The on-board computer means that the ship can be controlled remotely. The Falcon Flyer is mainly used to prowl the galaxy in search of criminals. In the anime, F-Zero Falcon Densetsu the Blue Falcon has only one thruster instead of four. Also in F-Zero Maximum Velocity a second version of the Blue Falcon is unlockable, it is known as Blue Falcon Mk.2, piloted by Kent Akechi, who claims to be the son of Captain Falcon. [4]
