The Falcon Flyer is a ship in which Captain Falcon flies in to complete his bounty hunter missions. Interestingly, both in F-Zero and Super Smash Bros. Melee., he never uses it. In fact, its only video game appearance is in the Super Smash Bros. series and first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee. It was shown in the comic that came along with the original F-Zero though. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, it appears as both a trophy and on the Big Blue stage.
The Falcon Flyer appears in Brawl's Subspace Emissary, summoned by Captain Falcon to escape from the Subspace Bomb Factory that was about to explode, then he, Samus, Pikachu, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Olimar, and R.O.B. face Meta-Ridley on top of the Falcon Flyer. A short time after that, the Falcon Flyer (piloted by Captain Falcon), along with the Halberd, lands where the rest of the heroes are, and helps in the assault to stop the Subspace Gunship. The Falcon Flyer has two rear engines on Big Blue, while it has three in its trophy.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl
- Captain Falcon's speedy, midsized galactic cruiser, equipped with an onboard computer. Captain Falcon uses the Falcon Flyer mainly to track down criminals when he's plying his trade as a bounty hunter. Of course, it also comes in handy for transporting and maintaining the Blue Falcon. The Falcon Flyer is an exceedingly reliable partner.

The treasured ship of the bounty hunter Captain Falcon. Don't get this confused with the Blue Falcon, his F-Zero machine. The nose looks like a falcon, reflecting Captain Falcon's dauntless pursuit of his prey. Beware, bounty heads! Captain Falcon will track you down!
