Mr. Heli, fully titled in Japan as Mr. HELI no Daibōken (Ｍｒ．ＨＥＬＩの大冒険?, "Mr. Heli's Great Adventure") and known in North America as Battle Chopper, is a 1987 multidirectional scrolling shoot 'em up arcade game developed and published by Irem.
Mr. Heli was later ported for the Commodore 64, Amiga, Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum and Atari ST by Firebird, as well as for the PC Engine in Japan by Irem. This version was also re-released for the Wii Virtual Console on March 18, 2008 only in Japan.
Mr. Heli later appeared in the Japan-only Game Boy title Shuyaku Sentai Irem Fighter, along with other characters from the game, as well as characters from three other Irem franchises: R-Type, Ninja Spirit and Hammerin' Harry. Mr. Heli was mentioned in one of the billboards seen in the final stage of Irem's Vigilante and also appeared in R-Type Final as a playable ship.
