Black Shadow (ブラック シャドー burakku shadō?) is a cold-blooded king of evil feared by all. He is wanted by the Galactic Space Federation, yet he often shows up at the Extraterritorial F-Zero circuits as if they are his own. However, Captain Falcon has seen much success capturing his foot soldiers, and Black Shadow wants nothing more than to see the end of the bounty hunter, preferably in front of millions of fans. It's inevitable that in any race he enters, there will be some kind of huge accident.

Personality[edit]

Black Shadow has been shown to be extremely evil, cold, and cruel, though not as much as Deathborn. However, he is shown to be genuinely affably to his enemies. He does not take into consideration the affects of his actions done to other people. When provoked, he does not hesitate to fight back and punish those who cross him. Despite this, he is shown to be terrified of Deathborn, being the only person to have ever made him cower in fear. He only values people if they can serve a useful purpose, as he saves Miss Killer several times from certain death, but he is capable of showing respect, as he is shown to be impressed that Mr. Zero would even ask him for an autograph as well as ask him to take off his mask when he is interviewed, even going as far as asking if he wants to work for him in the former.

He deeply hates Captain Falcon as he has captured several of his minions and foiled several of his plans. Knowing that Falcon participates in the F-Zero Grand Prix, Black Shadow had his own machine built so he could enter and kill Falcon in front of millions of viewers. However, it is hinted he also just simply loves destroying other machines at will.

He has also been portrayed as psychotic, but extremely cunning.

When this guy sees other racers ahead, he doesn't think about overtaking them - he just wants to destroy them! In fact, his only goal in the F-Zero Grand Prix is to eliminate that pesky Captain Falcon once and for all. And once he's done with that, he plans to destroy the world. He should really talk to someone about these anger issues... Randomly Obtained.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the Japanese version of F-Zero GX, during the post-game interview, one of the statements that can be made is "Your rivals are howling for revenge.", to which Black Shadow responds "I'll send you straight to Hell." Both the statement and response were removed in the English version.[2]
  • He bears a resemblance to the DC hero, Batman.
