Pico GX-AX Icon Pilot Quotes Machine Wild Goose GX-AX Icon

Pico (ピコ?) is a character in Nintendo's F-Zero series of video games. Although the character first appeared in the instruction manual of F-Zero, published in 1990, only his machine appeared in-game along with the other three pilots.[1] It was not until F-Zero X that he actually appeared in-game. The character's only appearance outside of the main series was in the anime F-Zero: GP Legend, and its Series of Games.

However, F-Zero X confirmed that he was indeed part of the Poripoto army. Currently, it is not known exactly what type of alien species he is. Pico's species is never named through any game. The term "Poripoto" is confirmed to be the military division whom he belonged to, but not the name of his race, or his home world. In the original game, it was spelt "Polipoto". In the first F-Zero title it is said that he hails from Death Wind [1] then in F-Zero X it says he is from "Tortiz 3".[2] In F-Zero X Pico claims to be 123, then claimed to be 124 a year later in F-Zero GX.[3] Both are considered to be around the age of adolescence on his planet, however, in the first F-Zero game, he was 34.[1]

In F-Zero GX, many considered Pico's reckless driving to be the cause of a major accident that ended the F-Zero Grand Prix four years prior to the events in this game. This has caused much of his fan base to disappear seemingly overnight. However, this fact does not seem to deter Pico from being an absolute menace on the race track. After retirement from the army, Pico opened a small shop near the military base, but he still operates as a notorious assassin.[5] If he wins the F-Zero Grand Prix, he will use the money to host the "Pico Cup".[6]

In the anime, Pico was a hired assassin for Dark Million, mostly working for Zoda. His first appearance was when he was a sniper as he launched speed-sensitive bombs onto each racer during the Fake Star Cup, where Rick, Capt. Falcon, and Roger Buster competed; the bounty hunter leapt off the course and disabled the blimp operating the bombs, deactivating them. If they were to reach above or below the red zone, they'd detonate, and it was only a ploy for Draq to give the profits to Dark Million. Pico's second appearance was when he was trying to murder John Tanaka, the Task Force director, as he delivered a package, but his plan was thwarted by Jody Summer.

The officer was being shot at, till Jody, Rick and Lucy chased him and his cronies away. He's known as a brutal assassin, but not as much as an F-Zero pilot.

Super Smash Bros. seriesEdit
