Captain Falcon is a character in Nintendo's F-Zero series of video games, co-created by Takaya Imamura and Shigeru Miyamoto. Captain Falcon has often been considered as the unofficial main character of the series. He first appeared in the instruction manual of F-Zero, published in 1990. It was not until F-Zero X that he actually appeared in-game. Though the character's vehicle can be used in the F-Zero series, Captain Falcon himself was never actually playable until Smash Bros. series. The character's only appearance outside of Nintendo games was in the anime F-Zero: GP Legend.
Captain Falcon is a mysterious, futuristic racer from the city of Port Town. In later F-Zero games, he is also portrayed as a legendary bounty hunter whose past is shrouded in mystery. In both guises, he consistently thwarts the plans of Black Shadow and other evil forces, both on and off the Grand Prix circuits.

- : Falcon Punch - Captain Falcon winds up and releases his iconic fiery punch. Inputting a direction (up or down) when charging Falcon Punch in the air will give a slight boost in that direction, and this also applies for custom variants. (25% (ground), 28% (ground reverse), 22% (air), 25% (air reverse))
> : Raptor Boost- Captain Falcon dashes forward and follows up with an uppercut. Can meteor smash the opponent if used in the air. (9% (ground), 8% (air))
^ : Falcon Dive - Captain Falcon attempts to grab an opponent, finishing with an explosion. If successful, he will cry "YES!!!". Does a harmless flip if the attack fails. (5% (hit 1), 12% (throw))
v : Falcon Kick - Captain Falcon bursts forward with a flaming high-speed kick. If used in the air, Captain Falcon will plunge down at a diagonal angle. (13%/11%/7% (ground), 15%/13%/11% (air), 9% (landing))
F : Blue Falcon - Captain Falcon calls in the Blue Falcon, which crashes through the stage in front of Captain Falcon. Whoever it hits when it first appears will be hit by the rest of the move. Characters who are not hit will stay in place until the end of the smash. A short cutscene appears, and the opponents are run over and sent flying. Like certain other Final Smashes, if no one is hit when the Blue Falcon appears, then the attack fails. (10% (hit 1), 20% (hit 2), 10% (throw))
