Blood Falcon is a racer in the F-ZERO series of games. Blood Falcon is a clone of racer and bounty hunter Captain Falcon created from DNA collected when Falcon was hospitalized after a large F-Zero accident four years before the events of F-Zero GX. Since he was cloned four years ago, he is technically four years old, though racing literature lists him as being 37 years of age.

He was cloned by the Black Shadow, a criminal mastermind. Though Blood Falcon is capable of everything Captain Falcon is, he has been trained to obey his master. His F-Zero ship, the Blood Hawk, was designed to be exactly like Captain Falcon's ship, the Blue Falcon. However, it was discovered it couldn't be replicated so the designers sacrificed grip for boost. The secondary engine was looted from the Blue Falcon following the large accident.

Cameos In Other Games

In all the games in the Super Smash Bros. series, Captain Falcon has a recolor that resembles Blood Falcon. Indeed, in Melee and Brawl, the emblem on Falcon's jacket is changed to a skull and the phrase "Blood Hawk", a change reflected in his All-Star trophy.
