Captain Falcon

Captain Falcon (キャプテン・ファルコン, Kyaputen Farukon?), full name Douglas Jay Falcon, is a playable character in the racing video game series F-Zero. He first appeared in F-Zero, and has served as the poster boy/main protagonist of the F-Zero franchise. Nintendo first envisioned Captain Falcon as a flagship character to represent the release of a new console, but he ended up appearing far less than originally planned. In the games, he appears as mysterious racer and bounty hunter who is one of the best racers on the circuit. Falcon also represents the F-Zero franchise in all three games of the Super Smash Bros. series. Falcon is the hero of F-Zero GX, the fifth game in the series.

In the GP Legend continuity, writers portrayed Falcon differently than previous games; here, "Captain Falcon" is a title passed down and held by the best racer in the world. He owns and operates a small bar in Mute City, taking up the alias of Bart Lemming and aiding fellow protagonist Rick Wheeler both secretly, and in disguise.
