Black Shadow is a cold-blooded king of evil feared by all. He is wanted by the Galactic Federation, yet he often shows up at the Extraterritorial F-Zero circuits as if they are his own. However, Captain Falcon has seen much success capturing his foot soldiers, and Black Shadow wants nothing more than to see the end of this meddling bounty hunter, preferably in front of millions of fans. It's inevitable that in any race he enters, there will be some kind of huge accident.

Powers and Abilities

Black Shadow has very rarely shown his powers in games, most likely due to the fact it's a racing game. But he has shown the ability to create clones of his enemies, as in Chapter 6 in F-Zero GX, where he created Blood Falcon out of thin air after he bound Captain Falcon with some electric rope move.

In the anime and GP Legends GBA game, Black Shadow's abilites were further shown. He had the ability to teleport and fly. Black Shadow also stopped the reactormite (a bomb that has enough power to destroy a galaxy) with his bare hands. He also has incredible physical strength (when Zoda became Hyper Zoda, he tried to get into a fist fight with Black Shadow, only to be beaten with a single punch), the power manipulate minds, steal memories, and some psychotic attack on the mind. He was shown to break through the time barrier, open portals to a dark dimension where evil wills have more power then good. He's also shown to have extreme durability, such as when Hyper Zoda had his machine fall into lava and have it transform into a fire dragon and consume Black Shadow and his machine whole, only to show up in a later episode unhurt with an evil smile.

In the GP Legends video game, Captain Falcon also hints that huge explosions mean nothing to Black Shadow after the Black Bull explodes, perhaps saying Black Shadow may not be affected by certain types of technology.

He is also shown to be extremely intelligent, dealing with black magic rituals and highly advanced technology. He could be extremely rich as well, claiming that the F-Zero prize money is a paltry sum.


Black Shadow has been shown to be extremely evil, cold and cruel. Not taken in consideration the affects of his actions done to other people. When provoked he doesn't hesitate to fight back and punish those who cross him. He only values people if they can serve a useful purpose as he saves Miss Killer several times from certain death.

He deeply hates Captain Falcon as he has captured several of his minions and foiled several of his plans. Knowing that Falcon participates in the F-Zero Grand Prix, Black Shadow had his own machine built so he could enter and kill Falcon in front of millions of viewers. However, it is hinted he also just simply loves destroying other machines at will.

He has also been portrayed as psychotic but extremely cunning. But finds anyone with the courage to even ask him anything amusing.
