Super Falcon (Japan-Only)
Super Falcon is a powered-up Blue Falcon and makes its appearance in the Japan-Only N64DD F-Zero X Expansion Kit for F-Zero X. It's one of the "Super" machines along with The Super Cat (powered-up White Cat) and The Super Stingray (powered-up Fire Stingray). Like the Super Cat and the Super Stingray, It's stats are All A-ranked and it is Weightless, making them the best machines in the game. Like the Blue Falcon, Captain Falcon is Super Falcon's pilot, albeit, wearing a lighter, altered version of his attire (but lacks a mugshot).
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 is also how he enters in Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee.
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. This kart changes color depending of who is driving, and it's only blue when Baby Mario, Toad or the Male Mii are driving. It has a high top speed, possibly implying that F-ZERO vehicles reach higher top speeds than vehicles in the Mario kart series.
In Mario Kart 8
The Blue Falcon returns in Mario Kart 8 as one of the vehicles included in The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8 downloadable content pack. Unlike in Mario Kart Wii, the model is based on the original Blue Falcon from the SNES game, F-Zero, has only one color scheme, and is available to all characters in all weight classes.
- The Blue Falcon appears in Animal Crossing: Wild World as a hidden item. It can also be unlocked in Animal Crossing: City Folks, but only by hacking.
- In Animal Crossing: New Leaf it is available by showing Fortune #34 to Timmy or Tommy. This fortune reads "When all else fails, never forget to show them your moves."
- Even though you play as Captain Falcon in Super Smash Bros Brawl, you can occasionally see the Blue Falcon race through Port Town Aero Dive. This is also true for Big Blue and, in Melee only, Mute City.
- The Blue Falcon, along with the Fire Stingray and an Arwing, makes a cameo in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
- In the box art of the first game, the Blue Falcon's number is "111". This number, curiously, is "7" in binary.
- The Blue Falcon appears in Nintendo Monopoly. It replaces Pennsylvania Railroad.

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.”
