In the F-Zero racing scene, Captain Falcon uses his Blue Falcon to win big. His origin largely a mystery, he's made his way to the Smash Bros. battlefield to prove his worth outside the cockpit. He's got speed and power, and his distinct Falcon Punch leaves a dent. Start it in the air to surprise your foes!
We love it when this F-Zero pilot from Port Town takes a break from racing the Blue Falcon to take on challengers in brawls. His balance of speed, power and weight is spot on, and his slow but mighty Falcon Punch is oh so sweet when it finally connects. Try starting the attack in mid-air and punching your way into a frantic fray!

Pico was given this machine when his commanding officer retired from the military. The Wild Goose trades handling and acceleration for durability— fortunate, since Pico isn't afraid to swap paint with his rivals. Speaking of paint, does it look kinda...duck-like?
This machine was given to hot-headed soldier Pico when he retired from the military. Designed as a war machine, it's too heavy to be quick or good at cornering, but it's perfect for Pico's aggressive driving style...which might explain the name.

Samurai Goroh leads a group of space bandits, so the fact that his Fire Stingray is hot pink might be a little...unexpected.

Does this chap remind you of anyone? Well, he should - he's a Captain Falcon clone created by the evil Black Shadow as part of his plan to take over the world.
