[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 appears first when meeting Captain Olimar. He jumps in to Falcon Punch the giant R.O.B., but kills several Pikmin in the process. He uses the Falcon Flyer as one of the transportation devices (along with the Halberd, Dragoon, Samus' Starship, Arwing and Olimar's Ship). The Falcon Flyer is used to escape the doomed bomb factory, and is attacked by Meta Ridley soon afterwards.
