Character from the racing game F-Zero.
Captain Falcon (キャプテン・ファルコン Kyaputen Farukon?) is a playable character in the racing video game series F-Zero. He first appeared in the debut game, and is the poster child of the F-Zero franchise. Nintendo first envisioned Captain Falcon as a flagship character to represent the release of the SNES, but he ended up appearing far less than originally planned. In the games, he appears as a mysterious racer and bounty hunter who is one of the best racers on the circuit. Falcon also represents the F-Zero franchise in each entry of the Super Smash Bros. series.
