This swift craft boasts a speedy power-blaster charging time, but is able to endure less damage than the other craft types.

The Light Arwing[1] is a smaller, faster version of the Arwing used by Miyu and Fay in Star Fox 2. This craft lacked defense, but made up for it in speed. Its default special item is the super shield.


In contrast to the regular Prototype Arwing, the Light Arwing is much thinner, consisting of a split front end and wings that angled towards the back of the ship instead of outwards as with the Prototype Arwing. The Light Arwing is likely the most combat-ready ship in the game, as it can fire charge shots off at a higher rate than the other Arwings in the game. However, it has the weakest shield resistance of the three Arwings presented in this game, at 12 hit points, compared to 16 for the Prototype Arwing and 20 for the Armoured Arwing. The small margin of resistance between the Light and Prototype Arwings could make a large difference when fighting tough enemies.

In an earlier known prototype, the ship had much smaller wings that angled down, rather than backwards. Its pilots were represented by Andross and Fara Phoenix, respectively known as "Saru" and "Lady" and possibly placeholders before new pilot designs were implemented. When it transformed on land maps, it turned into a bipedal walker with locomotion similar to that of a bird. Other than design, there were no real differences gameplay wise.

  • In the late 1995 prototype, these Arwings were unique in that they were additionally pre-equipped with Twin Blasters, making them the only ships that came with more than one type of item. This is removed in the final release, presumably for balancing purposes.
