"I was born ready!"
That was Lieutenant Flipshot's boastful, cocky catchphrase throughout the NA cartoon. Along with Captain Hydron, Flipshot is the co-pilot and first mate of the Starship Eternia and is the comedic foil to the usually more stoic Captain Hydron.
While his partner is more water-centric, Flipshot is an aerial character with his jetpack. His action feature is also aerial--he flips into enemies. Even his international name, Icarus is an aerial reference.
