The Black Bull is a machine designed by Black Shadow's own secret organization, the BS Group. The ship is built to be extremely sturdy and withstand a lot of abuse, perfect for Black Shadow's beat-'em-up racing style. It is also a very fast machine, but lacks a powerful boost. The characteristics of the machine make it ideal for adept pilots who can negotiate turns at high speeds and knock out the competition. These same attributes, however, also make the vehicle perfect for inexperienced pilots.

The Black Bull is an F-Zero machine designed in the secret laboratories of the BS Group, an evil organization commanded by Black Shadow himself. The Black Bull is a machine with advanced functionality--its amazing grip capability and sturdy body construction is perfect for the heinous and inhuman Black Shadow, who gets joy not from passing other racers, but from destroying them. These same characteristics also make the Black Bull perfect for inexperienced drivers.
