Strider Hiryū (ストライダー飛竜?), localized as Strider, is a platform game released for the CP System arcade hardware by Capcom in 1989. It became one of Capcom's early hits before Street Fighter II, revered for its innovative gameplay and multilingual voice clips during cutscenes (presented in Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, and English).

Out of the many ports of the game, four are notable:

  • Flag of Japan.svg Sharp X68000 port: the most faithful port of the arcade original.
  • Globe.svg Sega Mega Drive port: the most faithful port of the arcade original internationally released.
  • Flag of Japan.svg TurboDuo port: it features one extra stage and many animated cutscenes.
  • Globe.svg PlayStation port: the most recent version, included with Strider 2 (2000).
