Beastman (ビーストマン Bīsutoman?) is a recurring playable character in the F-Zero video game series. He made his first appearance in the 1998 Nintendo 64 title F-Zero X. The character has also appeared outside of video games, in the anime F-Zero: GP Legend.
Beastman suffered a near-death encounter with crocodiles as a child. He thereafter became a hunter, and dedicated himself to protecting people from dangerous wild animals. After dealing with all of the creatures on his home planet, he entered the F-Zero circuit for publicity reasons, and continues to race in order to protect the crowd and the other racers from the perceived threat of the monstrous Bio Rex.
