Character Description

Most of the Excitebiker's identity remains unknown to this day. He is a professional motocross racer who is constantly on his red bike. He wears a red jumpsuit, gloves and a helmet which he never takes off. Excitebiker first appeared in 1984's NES game Excitebike, as one of the many motocross bikers. He raced on one of the five courses, as fast as only possible. There were two modes for him to race in, either a simple challenge race with no opponents, or an Excitebike race against many opponents. Excitebiker's pride and joy is his motorcycle, the Excitebike, which can accelerate like crazy with its turbo, but also causes the temperature gauge to rise repeatedly. This allowed him to pull off insane tricks in the air.


Excitebiker is a character of extremes. He is the fastest character in the game in ground speed and running speed (equalevant to Sonic). However, he is heavy for his size and has fast falling speed. One thing that is unique to Excitebiker is that he's constantly on his bike, even when he attacks, so he offers a unique fighting style in the game. His Special Moves are quick and allow him to instantly come face-to-face with his opponents and attack them directly. However, some of them deal minimum damage and knockback. Excitebiker also has a projectile attack, which works like a trap on the ground. Excitebiker's Smash attacks and tilts are completely the opposite of his Special Moves. They are very slow, but some of them are quite powerful. Although for obvious reasons he has more advantages on the ground, Excitebiker turns out to be a good fighter in the air, as his aerials are powerful. Aside from his attacks, Excitebiker has also received a redesign in order to look more realistic.
