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 Falcon MK-2, piloted by Kent Akechi, who claims to be the son of Captain Falcon. [4]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl

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 Mute City 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.

In Mario Kart Wii

The Blue Falcon appears to be as one of the Unlockable Karts when winning the Mirror Lightning Cup. It now has three wheels and the racing numbers on the fins are replaced with the character's emblem.

Without this ship, Falcon couldn't prowl the galaxy like a lone wolf: the Blue Falcon is a state-of-the-art machine, but it's only used for F-Zero races.”
