Beastman is an F-Zero pilot, who specializes in hunting dangerous animals as his main occupation. The character makes his debut in the game F-Zero X.
As a child, Christopher Annex had a traumatic experience on the planet White, when he was nearly killed by a giant crocodile. The incident left him scarred for life - physically and emotionally. To hide his natural shyness, he adorned the "Beastman" persona and adopted the outfit of a dinosaur to give himself an imposing figure. His deadly sharpshooting skills and aggressive tendencies made him feared by the beasts he hunted. His beast hunting has made him quite popular and a hero to many people.
Once he had eliminated all of the dangerous creatures from his homeworld, he decided to enter the F-Zero Grand Prix to promote himself for anybody wishing to employ his services. It was during his first year of racing that he met Bio Rex, a new competitor designed by Keerlon Corporation. Beastman has since continued to compete in the Grand Prix with a vow to protect the other pilots and crowd from Bio Rex in case the creature ever decides to go rogue.
In an interview with Beastman on F-Zero GX, Beastman states he wants to make a helmet out of a Bio Rex.
In the anime, Beastman is depicted as a more serious beast hunter, even to the point of killing a beast in cold-blood. It is also hinted that Beastman has a rivalry with Bio Rex, which is carried over from the games.
Beastman only makes one appearance in the anime, in which he is hunting for a werewolf, who happens to be a friend of Lucy Liberty. During the entirety of the episode, he reluctantly teams up with Rick Wheeler in hunting for the werewolf. He eventually encounters the werewolf in an F-Zero race, although Rick prevents him from killing him when it turns out that Leon is the werewolf and is trying to live a normal life. Beastman reluctantly leaves but warns Leon that if he catches him again, he will kill him.
- Chris' name means bearing Christ.
