F-Zero GX (F-ZERO GX, Efuzero jīekkusu[?]) is a futuristic racing video game for the Nintendo GameCube console. It is the fifth installment in the F-Zero series and the successor to F-Zero X. Developed by Sega's Amusement Vision department, it was released in Japan, Europe, and North America in 2003, and is the first game in the series to be developed by a third party company. Its arcade counterpart, F-Zero AX, utilizes hardware conceived from a business alliance between Nintendo, Namco, and Sega. F-Zero GX runs on an enhanced version of the engine that powered Super Monkey Ball. A heavy emphasis is placed on track memorization and reflexes, which aids in completing the title. F-Zero GX introduces a "story mode" element, where the player walks in the footsteps of Captain Falcon through nine chapters while completing various missions, as well as a vehicle creation.

A playable demo of F-Zero GX was available on a special bonus disc that came with preorders for Mario Kart: Double Dash!! The demo had the player race as Captain Falcon on Mute City: Twist Road.

  • The maximum velocity players can reach in the game is 9999 kilometres per hour; if the player exceeds this speed, however, then the speedometer will roll over to 0 kilometres per hour, causing the player's vehicle to come to an immediate stop.
  • One of the producers for F-Zero GX, Toshihiro Nagoshi, has previously worked on the 1994 racing game Daytona USA.
  • In Nintendo of Europe's website segment Wario's Warehouse, Wario talks about F-Zero GX when he reported on its showing during E3, saying "Oh, the thrill, the excitement...my hands are still trembling. Nintendo and SEGA have combined to create the ultimate supersonic racer. The sheer speed of this game is mind-boggling, plus you can save your custom car to a Memory Card and race it in the arcade version of the game, F-Zero AX."
