“Show me your moves!”
Captain Falcon is a character from the F-Zero series. He is an F-Zero racer and a secret bounty hunter, with a mysterious past. In the Super Smash Bros. series, he appears as a secret character in the original Super Smash Bros., then returns as a default one in Super Smash Bros. Melee. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, he appears as an unlockable character once again, though in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U he is once again a default character. Captain Falcon is voiced by Ryou Horikawa.
Super Smash Bros. series
In Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee, despite having a slow walking speed, Captain Falcon has the fastest running speed. His attacks, however, despite being powerful, are slow. The only exception is his attack when repeatedly pressing . In Super Smash Bros., he is an unlockable character, unlocked by beating 1-P Mode in under 20 minutes with any character and then beating him. However, in Super Smash Bros. Melee, he was a default character. He also received the Dash- attack and Raptor Boost in Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Captain Falcon's special attacks are unique in that, aside from his Final Smash, none of them are based upon any aspect of his series of origin. His special moves are the Falcon Punch, which involves Captain Falcon charging and unleashing a powerful, fiery punch; Raptor Boost, in which he swifly moves forward and uppercuts anyone in his path; Falcon Kick, which has Captain Falcon kicking across the ground; and Falcon Dive, in which Falcon jumps and punches straight up. His Final Smash, introduced in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, is the Blue Falcon, in which Captain Falcon summons the machine to run over any players he catches.
Captain Falcon is also unique in that he's had a total of six playable recolors in all the Super Smash Bros. installments, with two of the recolors being team battle exclusive in Super Smash Bros.. Starting with Super Smash Bros. Melee, he is able to use all six of his recolors in free-for-all matches. One of Captain Falcon's alternate costumes is that of his evil clone, Blood Falcon, including a patch on his uniform saying "25 - Blood Hawk", which corresponds to the number and name of Blood Falcon's own F-Zero Racer. Another one of his colors are the original, brighters colors used in the F-Zero series.
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Captain Falcon is one of the two default fighters that were unlockable in the previous game, along with Ness. Although, Captain Falcon appears in the Adventure Mode as an enemy as well as All-Star Mode. Captain Falcon appears in Event Matches 12, 17, 20, 33, 36, and 43, and he is one of the random characters in Trophy Tussle 1, 2, and 3. Captain Falcon's fighting techniques are shared with Ganondorf, who has similar abilities, but is slower and has more powerful attacks.
Captain Falcon has a unique way of using weapons in this game. For example, when using a Home-Run Bat, Captain Falcon slams the opponent down and then up again instead of hitting them across the screen. According to the trophy information of the Star Rod, it has the most power when it is used with a Smash Attack of Captain Falcon or Sheik.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Captain Falcon appears as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but is no longer the character with the fastest running speed; that status being taken by Sonic the Hedgehog. He can be unlocked by clearing stage 20 in the Subspace Emissary, playing 70 versus matches, or by clearing Classic in 12 minutes on at least Normal difficulty.
The Subspace Emissary
In the Subspace Emissary, Captain Falcon saves Captain Olimar from an enormous R.O.B.. Later, he and Olimar save Donkey Kong with the help of Diddy Kong and they join a team with them. After getting through the Subspace Bomb Factory, they meet up with Samus Aran and Pikachu but soon, Ganondorf appears and gets all R.O.B.s in the factory to burn the Ancient Minister and detonate Subspace Bombs to create a giant hole in space. The Minister turns out to be a R.O.B. himself, who joins Falcon's team, and then, after the Subspace Army is taken care of, the whole team decides to leave the area.
Captain Falcon calls his Falcon Flyer and after everyone gets on they all fly to The Canyon where they meet up with everyone else. Before that though, Meta Ridley attacks but he is taken care of. Everyone enters Subspace and find themselves being turned into trophies by Tabuu. King Dedede and his group then arrive and revive Captain Falcon and most of the others until everyone is revived and able to take on Tabuu.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U
Captain Falcon returns as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. His moveset, including his Final Smash, remains unchanged from previous games. He appears as a starter character for the first time since Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Mario Kart 8
Though Falcon does not directly appear in Mario Kart 8, his amiibo is compatible with the game, allowing the player to customize their Miis with a Captain Falcon-themed outfit if the player is to connect the Captain Falcon amiibo to the Gamepad. Other elements from the F-Zero series appear in the game in the The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8 DLC; Captain Falcon's trademark Blue Falcon and an F-Zero themed track named Mute City, which even features F-Zero music. Artwork of Captain Falcon also appears on large television screens around Mute City, along with his signature quote, "Show me your moves!"
