Black Shadow #3 is Black Shadow's third mission of the story in F-Zero: GP Legend. The mission takes place in Sand Ocean and runs concurrently with Samurai Goroh #4.


Samurai Goroh continues his search at Sand Ocean. As he looks around,Black Shadow pulls up alongside him. Samurai Goroh, not realizing who came up, taunts the pilot. Once he realizes the person he taunted is Black Shadow, he considers making an escape.

Black Shadow succeeds in destroying Samurai Goroh's machine and speeds off, leaving Goroh's machine alone. Goroh survives the damage, but lays low to make Black Shadow think that he died.


Course map

The mission takes place on a unique track for Sand Ocean filled with several turns. Many of these turns are U-turns, with several Motion Strips. After the second U-turn is a serpentine path with Motion Strips leading toward the walls, with a Pit after the following U-turns. The next two U-turns have Motion Strips immediately afterward, and there are several small Motion Strips in a crossing grid pattern after the final U-turn. The end of the course is a large straight path with several patches of Rough dirt.

The race is only between Samurai Goroh and Black Shadow, Black Shadow starting in second. The player starts off with Boost power, which Black Shadow will need to use in order to catch up with Goroh. The objective is to destroy Goroh's machine by using a Side Attack and then cross the finish line. If Goroh's machine is not destroyed by the time Black Shadow reaches the goal, the mission fails.



Samurai Goroh: "Sheesh... This is one remote planet! He MUST be here!"
Samurai Goroh: "Yeah, he's the only one left that could have poisoned me..."
Samurai Goroh: "Hey, punk!"
Samurai Goroh: "Passing the great Samurai Goroh..."
Samurai Goroh: "...without so much as a greeting! Are you brave, or just plain stupid?"
Samurai Goroh: "Hey! Is that...! Black Shadow?"
Black Shadow: "So, Samurai Goroh. Interesting indeed!"
Black Shadow: "I shall make you one of my underlings!"
Samurai Goroh: "Crud! Bumping into a psycho like him... Today isn't my day!"
Samurai Goroh: "Hmmm... For now..."
Samurai Goroh: "For the moment... I'll just run away!"


Black Shadow: "So, the pirate Samurai Goroh is a little weakling!"
Black Shadow: "If you'd stopped quietly, I'd have spared your life!"
Black Shadow: "Heh heh heh…"
Samurai Goroh: "Crud. I lost bad!"
Samurai Goroh: "That Black Shadow can't be taken too lightly!"
Samurai Goroh: "For the time being, I'll let him think I died here."
Black Shadow: "Anyone who stands against me dies!"
