Now, now, don't get me wrong, I love F-Zero GP Legend, ever since I was a late teenager. It has actually helped me thru high school during junior year, especially when the large state standardized test was approaching toward March; I still have some fond memories with both the English Dubs as well as the GBA game of the same name.
However, nothing's perfect, and as I was creating my F-Zero fics back in the day, there were quite some unpleasantries that needed to be pointed out. So, here are my 10 Flaws in GP Legend, and I'm even including its successor, Climax.
One of the biggest and most glaring flaws about GP Legend was the fact that it often ignores the F-Zero lore that was prevalent throughout the series. Sure, there were …Read more >
Alright, since my F-Zero fanfic, Ending it All, was my personal favorite of mine, I thought maybe I should give you all a brief summary of every Lap in the story. I hope that'll give it more praise this way and more recognition from the fans. So here goes:
SPOILER WARNING!! This contains major spoilers for this story. You have been warned, please enter at your own risk!
This took place during the spring, just a few weeks after Tinsel was brainwashed by Dark Million. She first arrives at the Falcon House and Bart Lemming and Clank Hughes grew very concerned, that they were unable to make contact with the Mobile Task Force since they disappeared just several days ago. She soon enters the base, only to find it empty and barren. Each one of…Read more >
I recently stuck w/ the series via the Franchise Report that was made last year by Freelance Nintendo, then I was watching the first episode of the anime. When suddenly, there was a question that just came to me like a slap in the face. I came to thinking... Was F-Zero made for the wrong demographic?
Here's the thing: During the Franchise Report concerning the future of F-Zero, people would see how sales have decreased overtime in the franchise. From the original, to X, Max. Velocity, and especially GX, GP Legend, and Climax, lifetime sales seemed to have decreased w/ every game in various generations and systems. At first, it did bother me, but I constantly thought it'll all change if they should count the virtual consoles, Classic systems…Read more >

Here are my other OCs for the F-Zero series:
Occupation: Physicist in Mute City
Birthplace: Earth, Mute City
Appearance: Ending it All, Man of Destiny, The Power of the Falcon
Rodney is a young physicist and is the son of Dr. Robert Stewart; aside from his half-sister, Luna, he happens to be his only living kin. He looks up to his father highly and was always willing to follow in his footsteps as a doctor, rather than a F-Zero racer. He's very well-liked and famous throughout the world and the universe.
Tinsel discovered Rodney as she was searching for her friends within the Task Force. They've mysteriously went missing, and she wanted to consult with him about a strange compound in a syringe his dad left behind. The note entr…Read more >

Ever since I saw a video by TASproductions on his retrospective about the FoxBox/4Kids.TV, I had decided to make this blog post. We all know that GP Legend (both the anime and the GBA game) was released upon US shores at the same time on September 2004. It premiered on the FoxBox and to me, it was almost an instant hit. I was playing F-Zero GX during the summer of that year, and when I first heard about it as my younger siblings pointed it out on TV, it was only natural I decided to give it a gamble; it was actually during the first weekend during my junior year in HS. Despite the fact that Rick Wheeler was the main man, instead of Capt. Falcon, and the fact that it was in an alternate timeline for some reason, I quite enjoyed it from Lap …Read more >
Ok, yeah it is kind of obvious since some fans have splurged GP Legend into the main timeline, but hear me out:
So, much like the chronology, it starts the hyper futuristic race we know as F-Zero (200 years after the fatal F-MAX) that took place in 2560. Then, there was the unfortunate event known as the Horrific Accident, aka the Grand Finale, in which Deathborn caused the lethal crash at the last course of the King League, Fire Field.
The Grand Prix was suspended for seven years until, thanks to the persuasion from Super Arrow, the Federation Congress decided to resume the sport with the F-Zero X competition in 2567.
Unlike the main chronology, there was a pilot that seemed to have returned from the dead, Tinsel Steelus. Aside from introduc…

Hey, futuristic racing fans. I've made some fanfics involving the series since I'm a huge follower of it. Whether it'd be the games or the anime, you'll see a lot of the material they revolve around. Many of them center on the development of my OC, Tinsel Steelus, the pilot of her own machine, the Silver Comet. These stories can be found on DA or FF.net.
Falcon's Followers This is a multi-chapter story that was based off of F-Zero GX's Story Mode. Instead of just Captain Falcon, it also involves my OC as well as some elements from the original Yu-Gi-Oh series. Through fascination, she, Yugi, and Joey go on their own odyssey as Falcon fulfills his duties as a bounty hunter and Grand Prix champion. Combined with their racing sk…Read more >
Hey. I can't believe there's only one character (or 2) that represent F-Zero in Smash. There's only Captain Falcon (as well as his alt costume which looks like Blood Falcon in a way). There should be more! I mean, we had Samurai Goroh as an Assist Trophy right? So why wasn't he chosen as an actual fghrer? I don't mind him much, but seriously, where's Black Shadow and maybe Rick Wheeler? Shouldn't they be a part of this? The former's an epic villain and Falcon's gotta have something to fight against; and Rick has always been swept under the rug! He happens to be my favorite pilot as well. So, yeah, there should be more fighters from F-Zero, and Black Shadow and Rick Wheeler have potential! Just as long as they're not clones, like Starfox's.…Read more >
