Blood Falcon is an F-Zero pilot and an antagonist in the F-Zero series. He pilots the Blood Hawk.


Blood Falcon is a twisted clone born straight from a sample of Captain Falcon's DNA, which was stolen by an underling of Black Shadow's while he was hospitalized with a coma following the Great Accident four years ago at that time (which is why Blood Falcon is actually a mere four years-old). Black Shadow went through with this undertaking after finally cracking the foundation for the perfect right-hand man following countless frustrating failures in attempts to do away with Captain Falcon once and for all. And what being could be better suited for such a job than Captain Falcon himself? Blood Falcon withholds every strength, ability, and base characteristic of Captain Falcon (minus the brutal criminal insanity), and is under complete control of the dark lord, Black Shadow, being able to materialize and dematerialize as he wills it. Black Shadow had Dark Million craft the Blood Hawk for him, an F-Zero machine that is almost exactly bipolar to the Blue Falcon in terms of stats and body shape (this allowed him to officially enter the F-Zero Grand Prix circuit with the exact same goal that thrust Black Shadow into the races). Even though Blood Falcon appears to have total allegiance towards the overlord of evil, it's been hinted at that he has begun to wane from him, pondering his own free will and the meaning of his existence as a whole.


Super Smash Bros. Universe

Blood Falcon appears in the game as a racer on the Mute City Serial Gaps stage. In addition he appears with the Blood Hawk as a collectible trophy. One of Captain Falcon's palette swaps resembles Blood Falcon even more than it did previously.

F-Zero U

Blood Falcon will return to F-Zero in F-Zero U. Like all other returning GX pilots, Blood Falcon is 10 years older than he was in F-Zero GX, making him 14 years old in this installment. The Blood Hawk has been given an improved grip to make the machine easier to handle.
