Background Information

F-Zero Falcon Densetsu (or F-Zero: GP Legend in America) is a TV anime series based on Nintendo's F-Zero franchise. It is a reboot of the franchise taking place in the year 2201. Lifeforms from all across the galaxy come to compete in the new racing tournament called F-Zero.


A police detective called Ryu Suzaku (named Rick Wheeler in America) suffers from a fatal car accident while in pursuit of an escaped criminal named Zoda. Ryu dies, but is revived in the year 2201 by Mobile Task Force members Jody Summer and Dr. Stewart. The Task Force tries to keep prize money out of the hands of unsavory people like the Dark Million Organization run by Black Shadow and Deathborn.

That organization is responsible for cryogenically evolving Ryu's old enemy Zoda. Now Ryu joins the Task Force to help take down Zoda and the rest of Dark Million. While pursuing his objectives, Ryu will unexpectedly meet up with the legendary racer and bounty hunter named Captain Falcon.

Standing in the Battledome

The verse is more powerful overall than its game counterpart, since it has two abstract beings (the light side of the universe and the dark side of the universe) who are incarnated by Captain Falcon and Black Shadow.

The verse also features broken weapons called the might reactors which grant superhuman powers and can destroy and recreate the  when utilized correctly and a fleet of FTL spaceships which can citybust with ease.
