Captain Falcon (JP) (full name Douglas Jay Falcon) is a video game character debuting in F-ZERO for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1991.

While not the mascot of the series or really even, necessarily, the main character, he's definitely the best known and most publicized by Nintendo and appears in more games than any other F-ZERO character.

In F-ZERO lore, he’s a bounty hunter whose identity is a mystery to everyone. He owns his own private island that was presumably purchased through the money he received from capturing bounties.

On his island, which is near Port Town, he has built his own track that he practices on before racing with other F-ZERO pilots. His famed Blue Falcon is his ship he races with. Over the years Captain Falcon has been rewarded with friends, but mostly rivals.

HistoryEdit

Captain Falcon’s history has been revealed through the games, the games’ manuals, and the anime. He's a bounty hunter with a mysterious past that not much is known about. His captain title is rumored to be because he was once a police officer.
