Since the huge accident four years ago, several F-ZERO pilots have turned up missing: in all of the missing-persons investigations conducted by the Space Police, Deathborn was the primary suspect. Deathborn has died three times, but each time was brought back to life by exchanging his real body parts for mechanical ones. Through these procedures, he has become essentially immortal. A device installed within his body allows him to travel freely through space, making it possible for him to mysteriously appear anywhere at any time. He banishes those he dislikes to the outer limits of space where they become drifting vagabonds for all eternity. Deathborn is plotting to take over the universe. His plan is to obtain the ultimate power that would allow him to determine life and death on every star as he sees fit. Interview E-RSED "Kudos on your expert victory!" "What are your plans now? (The winner of the expert class! Congratulations!)" -The winner's belt is in my hand. The fate of the galaxy is in my hands "How about that prize money?" 01-MIGHTY GAZELLE Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 37 Machine: RED GAZELLE Made By: Cyber Stick Inc. Engine: CY06-Z1x1 Weight: 1330 kg Body Strength: E Boost Strength: A Grip Strength: C Four years ago, Mighty Gazelle was the pilot who took the worst damage in the huge accident that led to the temporary suspension of the F-ZERO Grand Prix races. He just barely escaped death and was resurrected as a cyborg primarily made up of mechanical body parts. Living only for F-ZERO, he ignores the complaints of those who oppose his race participation-no protest would make him ship a race. Because he is a cyborg, he has been able to polish his racing skills without fear of death. Through analysis of his past races, he has fine-tuned all of his reflex-related components. 02-JODY SUMMER Pilot Data Sex: Female Age: 25 Machine: White Cat Made By: Galactic Space Federation/Warplane Research Department Engine: FGS-E055Sx4 Weight: 1150 kg Body Strength: C Boost Strength: C Grip Strength: A Jody Summer is a combat-machine pilot affiliated with the Galactic Space Federation. Her ability is highly regarded, and she is recognized as a hero by both her peers and superiors. For these reasons she was chosen as the spokesperson for the Federation. She wasn't able to win the last Grand Prix championship but was praised for her bravery and subsequently chosen to be Miss Galactic Space Federation. She still doesn't have a great deal of experience as an F-ZERO pilot, but she has an incredible ability to control speed-that skill alone makes her the target of a great many of rivals. Interview N-RSED "Congrats on your victory! (Congratulations on your stunning victory)" -I didn't do it alone. I'd like to thank the Galactic Space Federation for their support. "Why did you become a racer?" "Nice F-ZERO machine! (That's a great machine you've got there)" -Those who don't take my White Cat seriously learn to regret it N-D "How about an autograph? (May i have your autograph, champ?)" -Of course. Treasure it always S-RSED "What was they key to your win? (What was they key to your victory?)" -Doing my best. Although that's not as simple as it sounds, of course "Got a message for your rivals? (Your rivals are howling for revenge)" -I'll take you on anytime "Got a message for the viewers?" S-D "What's most important to you? (What do you trasure most in life?)" -My family. They're very precious to me E-RSED "Kudos on your expert victory!(The winner of the Expert Class! Congratulations!)" -How could the day not end with my victory lap? "What are your plans now?(What are your plans now you've won?)" -TV appearances, and I have three contracts for product endorsements. "How about that prize money? (How will you use the one billion space credits in prize money?)" -Pamper myself at the best beauty salon in the galaxy M-RSED "You did the Federation proud!" "It looked dangerous out there! (There was a lot dangerous drivng today!)" -My spin attack got rid of those bad-mannered troublemakers! "What's day-to-day life like?" "Your mechanic is amazing!" 03-DR. STEWART Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 42 Machine: GOLDEN FOX Made By: Kevin Stewart Engine: GF-2614x4 Weight: 1420 kg Body Strength: D Boost Strength: A Grip Strength: D His real name is Robert Stewart. A long time ago, he was a charismatic surgeon with legendary surgical skills. However, the death of his father, professor Kevin Stewart, provided him with the opportunity to become a pilot. A regular racer with already over ten years of experience, he is still considered a top-class pilot. As a racer, he's known for his refined technical prowess and friendly demeanor. In the big accident four years ago, Dr. Stewart put his skills as a paramedic to use and treated many of the injured. Miraculously, due to his heroic efforts, no fatalities occured. 04-BABA Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 19 Machine: IRON TIGER Made By: F-ZERO Pilot Training School-Machine Design Committee Engine: RF-2E-DSx2 Weight: 1780 kg Body Strength: B Boost Strength: D Grip Strength: A This "wild child" was born and raised amid the natural beauty of Giant, a planet with expansive tracts of green land. He has preternatural animal instincts and a resilient, well-toned physique, both of which factored into his recruitment by the F-ZERO Pilot Selection Committee. He left his home and underwent a great deal of training in order to make his F-ZERO Grand Prix debut last year. He didn't win, unfortunately, and knowing he still had much to learn, he set out on a spiritual journey. As a result, his physical strength has increased twofold. However, he is also a bit overconfident now and is considered somewhat of a big mouth. 05-SAMURAI GOROH Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 45 Machine: FIRE STINGRAY Made By: Toraemon Echigoya Engine: RS-5060x2 Weight: 1960 kg Body Strength: A Boost Strength: D Grip Strength: B In outward appearance, Goroh is a bounty hunter just like Falcon, but in actuality, he is the boss of an intergalactic group of bandits with a terrible reputation. This group of gutthroats is said to use the Red Canyon for a hideout. Exactly what Goroh has plundered and extorted over the years is unknown. As a bounty hunter, he travels from planet to planet evaluating the value of possible spoils. He actually dreams of performing notorious deeds as a bounty hunter, but Falcon always seems to beat him to the punch in the newest and most profitable projects- Goroh is very bitter about this. He enters every Grand Prix without fail and is known as a rival of Falcon who will never stop trying to defeat him. 06-PICO Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 124 Machine: WILD GOOSE Made By: General Repeat Engine: ES6302x3 Weight: 1620 kg Body Strength: A Boost Strength: B Grip Strength: C Pico was a member of a special unit of the Poripoto army and carried out a number of dangerous missions. He is very agressive, yet cool-headed enough to do what needs to be done to the bitter end. Individuals who mess with him often don't live to do anything else. After retirement, Pico opened a small shop near the military base, but he still operates as a notorious assassin. The accident four years ago is said to have been caused by his dangerous driving, and for this reason he is disliked by many of the F-ZERO fans. This doesn't stop him from running the circuit as recklessly as always. Interview N-RSED "Congrats on your victory! (Congratulations on your stunning victory)" -The thrill of the F-ZERO reminds me of the battelfield. "Why did you become a racer?" "What was the key to your win?" 07-CAPTAIN FALCON Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 37 Machine: BLUE FALCON Made By: Unknown Engine: BF2003x4 Weight: 1260 kg Body Strength: B Boost Strength: C Grip Strength: B Captain Falcon was the winner of the previous F-ZERO Grand Prix, an achievement that boosted his already high popularity even higher. Beyond racing, he is quite well-known as an extremely capable bounty hunter-just how many criminals he's brought in is unknown, but the number is said to be astronomic. Aside from the fact that he hails from Port Town, his past is a complete mystery. His mind and body are honed from the many battles he has survived, and there is no challenge he can't overcome. Interview M-RSED "What's non-racing life like?" "Can we see your face?" "Think I could become a racer?" "Are you really retiring? (Is it true that you're thinking of retiring from racing?)" -Of course not. There are still rivals to be defeated. The battle's just begun 08-OCTOMAN Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 88 Machine: DEEPCLAW Made By: Kurosuminov Universal Shipbuilders Engine: OCT-108x2+ASHI-24x2 Weight: 990 kg Body Strength: B Boost Strength: B Grip Strength: C Octoman is a representative of Takora, a planet currently at odds with the Milky Way Space Federation. The confrontation between the Federation and Takora grows more long and drawn out by the day. The Takoraians are surrounded by enemies and are in a very unstable economic state. Due to this, Octoman wants to win the Grand Prix so that he can pay the education costs of his children. He plans to contribute the rest of his earnings to the government of Takora to give it hope for the future. 09-MR. EAD Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: Unknown Machine: GREAT STAR Made By: Shiggs Mapone Engine: EAD152x2 Weight: 1870 kg Body Strength: E Boost Strength: A Grip Strength: D Mr. EAD is an android created by the mysterious development group EAD. His objective in this Grand Prix is to complete the final testing phase for his IQ and AI programming. After his run on the last F-ZERO Grand Prix, he endured many trials-comat training, spy activities, college exams, and many others. If all of his capabilities function as calculated, there should be nothing that can keep him from winning the Grand Prix. His victory will signify the birth of a flawless android. 10-JAMES McCLOUD Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 32 Machine: LITTLE WYVERN Made By: Space Dynamics, Inc. Engine: FGS-C024Mx2 Weight: 1390 kg Body Strength: E Boost Strength: B Grip Strength: B McCloud is the leader of the flight squad Galaxy Dog. He had his combat plane converted into an F-ZERO machine in order to copete in the Grand Prix. During peacetime there is very little work available, so McCloud has entered his second race in an attempt to take home the big prize money. He is motivated to become the new champion by thoughts of his wife and young son, both of whom need his support. 11-BILLY Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 7 Machine: MAD WOLF Made By: Mad Baboon Science Laboratories Engine: CY95-F5x1 Weight: 1490 kg Body Strength: B Boost Strength: B Grip Strength: C One of Billy's ancestors was a trained rocket pilot and the first monkey in space. Whether by genetic predisposition or not, Billy's ability as a pilot is truly exceptional, and he's the first monkey to enter the F-ZERO Grand Prix. He was raised in a special lab where he was educated in human literacy and communication skills. The lab concurrently developed an F-ZERO racer suitable for a monkey and bestowed upon him the honor of piloting it in the Grand Prix. 12-KATE ALEN Pilot Data Sex: Female Age: 30 Machine: Super Piranha Made By: Team Power Boys Engine: 0Z-P1x2 Weight: 1010 kg Body Strength: B Boost Strength: C Grip Strength: B Kate is the megastar singer who was chosen to sing at the opening ceremonies of the past several F-ZERO Grand Prix races. Her fans are wild about her powerful dance moves and soulful vocals. Completely allured by the extreme speed of the race, Kate chose to pursue F-ZERO racing rather than continue furthering her musical career. Taking full advantage of her sense of rhythm and athleticism, she plans to run a rambunctious race. 13-ZODA Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: Unknown Machine: DEATH ANCHOR Made By: The Secret Society Deathriddle Engine: ZZ-2236x1 Weight: 1620 kg Body Strength: E Boost Strength: A Grip Strength: C Zoda is in a long dispute with the her of justice, Super Arrow. He has also been marked by Captain Falcon, and once was almost captured for his bounty. Zoda's crazed tendencies come from a special device that pumps adrenaline and dopamine into his body. He enters the Grand Prix races to raise funding for his sinister plots, and during this latest race, he plans to take out anyone who dares interfere with his master plan. 14-JACK LEVIN Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 19 Machine: ASTRO ROBIN Made By: Team Lightning Bolt Engine: SS-C503-LVx2 Weight: 1050 kg Body Strength: B Boost Strength: D Grip Strength: A Jack is a former pop-group member who set the entertainment industry on fire by pursuing his dream to become an F-ZERO pilot, and he now wins the hearts of many female fans on the F-ZERO scene. Any merchandaise bearing Jack's face is an instant sellout. While most people speak only of his good looks and popularity, his racing skills are also worthy of comment. 15-BIO REX Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 9 Machine: BIG FANG Made By: Dinosaur Racing Team Engine: TYRANNO-28x3 Weight: 1520 kg Body Strength: B Boost Strength: D Grip Strength: A Utilizing advanced biotechnologies, Bio Rex was created from a fossilized dinosaur egg. Genetic design allowed for the development of higher brain functions equivalent to that of a human, but as a carnivorous predator, he is still as agressive as Pico. He first entered the Grand Prix to prove his superiority over humans, but this time around he has entered to satisfy his ravenous appetite for mammoth ribs. 16-THE SKULL Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 241 Machine: SONIC PHANTOM Made By: Abinus Company Engine: C&97-X4x1 Weight: 1010 kg Body Strength: C Boost Strength: A Grip Strength: D The Skull was once the gratest driver in the F-MAX Grand Prix, a competition that predates the coming of F-ZERO by some 200 years.

Before long, due to his heroic deeds and growing popularity, he became known as the Beastman. Having dealt with all the beasts on his own planet, he entered the F-ZERO X Grand Prix for promotional reasons. There, he met Bio Rex for the first time, and knowing the creature was competing, he made a vow to protect the other pilots and a crowd from such a dangerous beast. 19-LEON Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 16 Machine: SPACE ANGLER Made By: Fable Animal Engine: ANIM-01-7x2 Weight: 910 kg Body Strength: C Boost Strength: C Grip Strength: A Leon is from the war-torn planet of Zou, where he lost both of his parents during the big war 12 years ago. As the planet suffered through the aftereffects of the war, it was decided that one F-ZERO machine should be sent to the Grand Prix with Leon as its pilot; a symbol of hope for the ailing planet. Leon has a great track record in the F-ZERO races as a result of his well-balanced abilities, and he desperately wishes to become champion in order to save the children of Zou from poverty. 20-SUPER ARROW Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 35 Machine: KING METEOR Made By: Professor Hollow Engine: HW204-J9x3 Weight: 860 kg Body Strength: E Boost Strength: B Grip Strength: B Super Arrow is a superhero who defends peace on Earth. He entered the last F-ZERO race to chanse his old enemy, Zoda.

Even so, he managed to race competitively by utilizing his superpowers. Zoda has entered the race again, and Super Arrow must do all he can to stop him and end his reign of terror. He is known for his relentlessly unforgiving attitude toward criminals, but when it comes to his wife, Mrs. Arrow, he's as docile as a puppy. 21-MRS.

Engine: KOM-E246x2 Weight: 780 kg Body Strength: E Boost Strength: A Grip Strength: C On the planet Huckmine, the Furikake people have an odd custom- they pair up with a partner as soon as they're born and do everything together. The intelligent Gomar is very short and envies the stature of Shioh, while Shioh is a tall creature who admires Gomar greatly and depends entirely on his decision-making. This peculiar pair work together, deftly manipulating their F-ZERO machine built for two.

He turns 99 next year and is debating retirement, but he also considers it a good possibility that he'll continue his race career until he turns 100.

With that in mind, Blood Falcon is technically only four years old. He is capable of everything Captain Falcon can do, but he has been strictly taught to obey all the commands of his evil master, Black Shadow. 26-JOHN TANAKA Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 31 Machine: WONDER WASP Made By: John Tanaka Engine: FGS-E049Mx2 Weight: 900 kg Body Strength: D Boost Strength: A Grip Strength: D John, the mechanic of the Galactic Space Federation is in the same unit as Jody Summers.

He is an absolutely gigantic fan of F-ZERO and has dreamed of entering the circuit himself since he was small. Roughly one year ago, Draq and Roger came across two F-ZERO machines tagged with an unknown recipient and no return adress. Draq quickly convinced Roger to let them enter the machines in the last Grand Prix, telling him that they would surely be recognized and the rightful owners would come forward to claim them. No one claimed the machines, however, and the two partners have decided to try again. Draq hopes to win a Grand Prix himself before the owners come to claim the machines-then he could use the prize money to buy a craft of his own. 28-ROGER BUSTER Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 41 Machine: MIGHTY HURRICANE Made By: Team Shooting Star Engine: SS-D701x1 Weight: 1780 kg Body Strength: E Boost Strength: B Grip Strength: B Roger is a galactic deliveryman famous for his policy of "No consignment too dangerous!"

At this time, it's unknown whether Don is participating in the F-ZERO races because he wants to publicize his trading company or whether it's just for fun. One thing is for sure, though: it must be related to some sinister gambling ploy he's put together. It's also rumored that Don Genie has some connection with Black Shadow, the emperor of evil. 32-DIGI-BOY Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 8 Machine: COSMIC DOLPHIN Made By: Digi-Boy Engine: TG3014x2 Weight: 900 kg Body Strength: E Boost Strength: A Grip Strength: C Digi-boy's real name is Terry Getter, and he's a young genius currently attending Einstein Academy.

In his dictionary, there is no such word as luck. Interview N-RSED "Congrats on your victory!" "Why did you become a racer?" "Nice F-ZERO machine!

He has decided to take up racing in order to win enough money to rescue the circus from its financial difficulties. His racing techniques are risky and sometimes amazing, but he's quite fickle and will sometimes drop out of a race suddenly or not run it seriously. As a result, his overall record isn't that great.

In order to increase her wisdom and life experience before becoming queen, she secretly ran off with her servants on an adventure to a host of other planets. When she arrived on Earth, she happened to catch a glimpse of an F-ZERO Grand Prix and whimsically decided that she, too, wanted to race. Knowing that no amount of persuasion will budge her once she sets her mind on something, her servants were left with no choice but to prepare a machine that fully utilized the scientific technology of Magica. 39-QQQ Pilot Data Sex: Unknown Age: Unknown Machine: ROLLING TURTLE Made By: Phoenix Engine: SS-A310-CTx4 Weight: 999 kg Body Strength: A Boost Strength: D Grip Strength: B QQQ is a junk robot that was found buried in a scrap pile in a galactic waste-management facility. It's still unclear why it was discarded there, but it was coincidentally picked from the heap and repaired by a very able space-police detective named Phoenix and quickly became his partner. For a robot, QQQ's construction is quite obsolete, but its artificial intelligence is still considered cutting-edge for any age. QQQ is tortured by the knowledge that some very important data lies somewhere in its AI programming. Since the robot was damaged when it was thrown away, its memory cannot currently access it.

However, if its AI is not repaired (thereby restoring its memory), it will never be able to return to the future. 40-PHOENIX Pilot Data Sex: Male Age: 26 Machine: RAINBOW PHOENIX Made By: Unknown Engine: RP2001x2 Weight: 1080 kg Body Strength: B Boost Strength: B Grip Strength: C Phoenix is a time traveler who has come back in time from the future.

They can be distingished by not following any pattern of previous, such as one name, or a name that isn't common from the arranged parts. I found most of these by just exploring, not sticking to the above pattern, trying every possible combination. These are currently in the order they were found in. To find these, I set the Booster to one that gives Special Custom Machines, then scrolled through the Body, doing the Cockpit with each. When doing this, I noticed the either the First Word or the Last Word of the Special Custom Machine will stay the same. If it does not follow the pattern of all the others in that category, then it is a Super Special Custom Machine.

Is James McCloud the James McCloud from Starfox (Nintendo game) and also Fox's father? A. No. James McCloud in this game is human, not a fox. He is also the leader of Galaxy Dog, not Starfox. Although he does wear the same outfit, have the shades and hair to match, as well as the Arwing, he is not the same one. To the best of my knowledge, Nintendo decided to put James McCloud in, to see who played Starfox/Starfox 64, and is just a little added bonus, for all those Starfox veterans. Q. Why don't you have any AR codes or AR parts here? A. We do now, but I still don't support them. Q. What does Mr. Zero (the interviewer) shake when he's around Deathborn? A. Wouldn't you? Seriously, just look at Deathborn!
