[edit] Background

Main Article

A famous pilot from the F-Zero series. His full name is "Captain Douglas Jay Falcon" but usually goes by Captain Falcon. He is also a bounty hunter and his arch rival is Samurai Goroh.

[edit] Super Smash Bros.

“A regular pilot in the great galactic race F-ZERO Grand Prix, Captain Falcon is skilled at collecting prize money. Much about his past remains hidden in shadow, but it’s clear that many a powerful villain hold a powerful grudge against him. FALCON PUNCH! When you hear these words, run for your life. The deadly punch attack leads the Captain’s repertoire, along with many other close range attacks. The main weakness of this racer is that he has no projectile attacks, making his long range game fairly weak.”

[edit] Super Smash Bros. Melee

F-Zero’s greatest ever racer steps out of his ship once more to join in the fight. He is as fleet on foot as he is when behind the wheel, coming in as one of Melee fastest characters. His high speed makes him difficult to use for beginners, but more long-term players will come to love his high agility coupled with his devastating power. Blessed with some powerful aerials (most noticeably his Knee Smash) and versatility while on the ground, Falcon is one of the game’s top characters and commands respect whenever he takes to the field.

[edit] Role in SSE

Captain Falcon is first seen leaping from his Falcon Flyer at a giant R.O.B. after Olimar fails to defeat it with his Pikmin, landing a direct Falcon Punch. Later on, they watch as Diddy Kong and Falco attempt to save Donkey Kong.

They leap down to join Diddy Kong and Donkey Kong, they later meet up with Samus and Pikachu where they attempt to stop a horde of R.O.B. Sentries from setting off Subspace Bombs. They fail and escape on the Falcon Flyer, but are followed by Meta Ridley.

After taking down Meta Ridley, they escape just in time before the island is engulfed in Subspace. They then join the other characters in Subspace to confront Tabuu, but are all turned to trophies by Tabuu's Off-Waves. Captain Falcon can be used in the final battle against Tabuu if he is found and revived in the Great Maze.
