Don Genie is an F-Zero pilot in the F-Zero series. He pilots the Fat Shark.


Don Genie is an extremely successful business mogul who mainly works in the business of arms trading. He is a very self-centered and cruel man, caring for absolutely no other living thing expect himself and his social status. He holds a grudging contempt to the rest of the world as a result, shunning it all from his life as a means to overcome a probable fear of others (which he masks astoundingly well). It has been said that he entered the current F-Zero Grand Prix with his Fat Shark (which he unloaded an exorbitant amount of funds on) for the sole purpose of advertising his many companies, but it's also possible that this is the first stage in Genie's plan to totally buy out and take over the sport of F-Zero, twisting it in ways that probably couldn't be imagined. He delivers absolutely no other racer on the track with even a shred of respect, yet has been seen to show a slight interest in Captain Falcon and his evident abilities. Despite his vast riches, Genie has been arrested on several occasions for selling highly-dangerous weaponry to various criminal organizations. Due to this fact, it has been rumored that he also has had ties with Black Shadow in the past.


Super Smash Bros. Universe

Don Genie appears with the Fat Shark as a trophy, a stage hazard in the Mute City stage, and as a part of Black Shadow's Final Smash. In addition, one of Black Shadow's palette swaps resembles Don Genie's color scheme.

F-Zero U

Don Genie returns as playable character in F-Zero U. Like all of the other returning pilots, Don Genie is 10 years older than he was in F-Zero GX, making him 75 years old. His rivals Sir Arthur Montague and Dennis Bilington make their debuts as new pilots in this game as well.
