Keio Flying Squadron, called Keiou Yuugekitai (慶応遊撃隊) in Japan, is a 1993 comical shoot-'em-up for the Sega Mega-CD by Victor Entertainment. It was followed by Keio Flying Squadron 2.

The protagonist Rami, a girl wearing a bunny suit, and her dragon pet Spot (ぽち in the Japanese version), set out to recover a stolen treasure.

Gameplay
