Design and namesake


The Super Piranha's design is both sleek and orthodox. The main base is comprised of two rounded edges that form a nose in the front and make fins in the back. In the center is the cockpit with a small window canopy. In the very back is a fender on top of the machine and the two engines arranged horizontally. The machine is primarily a vibrant turquoise with the cockpit and rear stripes rose-colored.


The Super Piranha is comprised of the words super, of excellent quality and piranha, a small, predatory freshwater fish.


The Super Piranha has a distinct fish-like appearance and is meant to relate to the piranha aspect heavily. Super is meant to relate to the vehicle's well-balanced statistics.

Differences between games

The Super Piranha's original appearance in F-Zero X had more of a jagged appearance. The game's manual depicted the machine having its name imprinted on the cockpit in white. F-Zero GX made the vehicle more smooth and rounded while making it shorter and adding six cooling vents on the front of the wings. When it transitioned into the Game Boy Advance games, its length was extended while thinning its width and changed from turquoise to dark blue.
