- Come rain, or sleet, or horde of skale, nothing will stop the intrepid Shining Blade Courier. Well, maybe the skale...
- Delivery man, delivery man, does whatever a courier can. Transports packages, any size. Brushes off Mantle, just like flies. Oh yeah, here comes the delivery man.
- Greetings, <player name>, fancy meeting you out here. I'd love to stay and chat, but I've got an important delivery to make.
- Being a good courier isn't about being lucky, it's about being fast!
- I bet I could train a rollerbeetle to deliver stuff for me.
- If you want to be my disciple, you'll have to show me your moves first.
- Only the courier that exceeds me has the right to become the next courier.
- "A courier's passion... is burning red!"
- "Are you okay?... Not after this!"
- "Being a good courier isn't about being lucky, it's about being fast!"
- "Come rain, or sleet, or horde of skale, nothing will stop the intrepid Shining Blade Courier. Well, maybe the skale..."
- "Don't mess with... THE FIST OF JUSTICE"
- "Don't mess with... THE SHINING BLADE!"
- "Delivery man, delivery man, does whatever a courier can.Transports packages, any size. Brushes off Mantle, just like flies. Oh yeah, here comes the delivery man."
- "Falken... PUNCH!"
- "GET SERIOUS!"
- "Greetings, <Player Name>, fancy meeting you out here. I'd love to stay and chat, but I've got an important delivery to make.
- "Here comes the fist!"
- "If you want to be my disciple, you'll have to show me your moves first."
- "Let's give 'em a whooping!"
- "Twenty-nine deliveries in the last week. The princess sure knows how to wear a guy down. She's lucky I'm so good at my job."
- If you talk to him during battle
- "Bring me your woes some other time, friend."
- "Duty calls."
- "Fight, damn it!"
- "For the Chosen!"
- "Help. A little help here."
- "If you haven't noticed, I'm busy at the moment."
- "Not now!"
- "Now is not the time for idle chatter!"
- "Spill the blood of our foes!"
- "Stop wagging your tongue and start whooping some butt!"
- "Tell me later. Right now I have enemies to slaughter."
- "The fight rages. The battle is not yet won."
- "The time for jabbering over a pint will come later."
- "To arms! To arms!"
- "We will reminisce after this battle is won."
- "You call that fighting?"
- "Your words fall on deaf ears. For now I fight."
- "I feel death watching over me, more and more often I am alone. I see adventurers walking past me, they IGNORE me! They say that escorting me is not worth their time! I feel that one of these days the White Mantles will get me on my line of duty, and they will get me alone."
- When escorting Courier Falken, you will be ambushed by additional pop-up groups of White Mantle at points along the route. In Hard mode, the groups may also contain Jade Cloaks.
- If he appears in the zone, he will automatically start running to his destination, leaving you no choice but to escort him (or leave him to die).
- Regardless of his survival, White Mantle pop-ups on his scheduled route will spawn (and must be Vanquished, as with other event-related foes in other areas).
- In normal mode, escorting Courier Falken through North Kryta Province takes about eight minutes.
- This quest-like-event is repeatable but Courier Falken will not spawn in every instance.
- His name, the name of his special skill (Falken Punch), and some of his dialogue are references to Captain Falcon of the video games F-Zero and Super Smash Bros.
- The quote "Are You Okay?" could be a reference to Terry Bogard from the Fatal Fury series or to Talim from the Soul series.
- The spawning quote that begins, "Delivery man, delivery man..." is a parody of the Spider-Man theme song.
- The quote "A courier's passion... is burning red!" is a reference to Mobile Fighter G Gundam's quote "This hand of mine is burning red!"
