A skilled F-Zero pilot and resourceful bounty hunter. All that's known of his past is that he hails from Port Town. He's won fame and fortune outracing his opponents in his beloved Blue Falcon. His incredible athleticism and never-say-die attitude makes him the pilot to turn to in times of trouble.
Captain Falcon's Final Smash. His beloved ship, the Blue Falcon, roars onto the screen once he touches a foe in front of him. The enemy gets sent to a racetrack, at which point the Blue Falcon screams down at a ridiculous speed and launches the unlucky victim. What track is it? Where did the machine come from? This is one technique that's an utter mystery.
A man who presents himself as a bounty hunter much like Captain Falcon but is also the boss of a notorious bandit group. He tries to collect criminal bounties but always fails to beat Captain Falcon to the collar. He considers himself Falcon's archrival and always tries to beat him in F-Zero races. His machine, the Fire Stingray (#05), has a high top speed.
A charismatic former surgeon of legendary stature, Dr. Stewart joined the F-Zero circuit after the death of his father. He once put his medical skills to use as a paramedic following an accident during a race. The Golden Fox (#03), passed down by his father, features excellent acceleration but awful grip, perfect for drift racing.
A war veteran who used to belong to a special-forces unit of the Poripoto army. He runs a small shop, but there's a rumor that he works behind the scenes as an effective assassin. His aggressive personality is also reflected in competition as a reckless pilot. The durable nature of his machine, the Wild Goose (#06), supports this destructive racing style.
A racer affiliated with the Galactic Space Federation. Jody Summer was highly regarded for her skills and chosen as the Federation race representative for entry into F-Zero. Although unable to secure victory in F-Zero X, Jody was chosen as Miss Galactic Space Federation. Her machine, the White Cat (#02), excels in grip strength and handling.
An android created by the shrouded development group EAD. Mr. EAD entered the Grand Prix for testing in IQ and AI programming. Mr. EAD pilots the Great Star (#09), which is much weaker than its tough exterior might suggest. With weaknesses in most fundamental areas, the Great Star has a high learning curve and will reap rewards for only the best pilots.
A legendary pilot who holds numerous records in the F-Max Grand Prix, which predates F-Zero by some 200 years. Through the powers of science and black magic, he returned to compete again in F-Zero X. With a high top speed and decent boost power, The Skull's machine, the Sonic Phantom (#16), should satisfy the needs of speed demons.
A clone created with the DNA stolen from Captain Falcon after his post- accident hospitalization. He abides strictly by the orders of Black Shadow, who fully supports his criminal activities. Blood Falcon pilots the Blood Hawk, which happens to be nearly identical in its performance traits to Captain Falcon's Blue Falcon (#25).
The undisputed lord of evil, feared by all. By capturing many of Black Shadow's underlings, Captain Falcon thwarted many of Shadow's plans, causing the cruel racer to enter the F-Zero Grand Prix solely to eliminate his antagonist. Shadow's machine, the Black Bull (#30), is a heavier vehicle that lags in acceleration but excels in body strength and speed.
A racer shrouded in mystery. This master of sinister plots has long battled with the just and good Super Arrow. With a big bounty on his head, he was once nearly captured by Captain Falcon. His machine, the Death Anchor (#13), excels in top speed and cornering and features high boost power to boot.
Captain Falcon's speedy, midsized galactic cruiser, equipped with an onboard computer. Captain Falcon uses the Falcon Flyer mainly to track down criminals when he's plying his trade as a bounty hunter. Of course, it also comes in handy for transporting and maintaining the Blue Falcon. The Falcon Flyer is an exceedingly reliable partner.
