The Wild Goose is the machine of choice for the highly-trained assassin, Pico. It was originally designed to be a machine of war by a high-ranking sergeant in the Polipoto army: Sergeant Lipo. Belonging to the organization known as Death Window, located on the planet Death Wind, Lipo designed this craft to withstand heavy enemy fire and persist against constant attacks with the ability to reach top speeds of over 900 km/h. After the heated battles amongst the Polipoto army had dissolved, the Wild Goose was retired from it's original military duties and enlisted as an F-Zero machine after it's structural and speed potential was recognized by the F-Zero Committee. Since this machine was designed for Polipotans, it can only be driven by this species and no other, which is how Pico ended up it's official pilot, wishing to enter the F-Zero after becoming a full-time assassin-for-hire following the war's end on his planet. This particular machine has marvelous acceleration and body power, but greatly lacks in the handling and boost departments.
