~ Captain Falcon, Super Smash Bros.

Captain Falcon (full name: Bart Lemming, Douglas Jay Falcon in F-Zero, F-Zero X, and F-Zero GX) is the main human character in Nintendo's F-Zero video game series, where he drives and/or flies the "Blue Falcon", arguably the most well-rounded vehicle in the game. He appears as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. (as an unlockable character), its sequel, Super Smash Bros. Melee (as an initially available character), and the third installment, Super Smash Bros. Brawl (again, as an unlockable character). A description text in Melee reveals that, when he is not taking part in races, he works as a bounty hunter. Just how many bounties he's brought in is unknown but, the number is said to be astronomical. Aside from the fact that he hails from Port Town, details on his background remain elusive.

In the Super Smash Bros. series, Captain Falcon is pretty well balanced medium weight close combat fighter. His signature move is the Falcon Punch, a tremendously powerful attack during which Falcon's fist ignites while a fiery falcon simultaneously appears behind the Captain and hurls itself at his adversary, as he delivers a punch of incredible force . This move is performed by hitting the B button and requires a certain amount of time to execute. His 2nd known move is the Falcon Kick, a low-powered kick during which Falcon's feet are ablaze. This kicking attack is not as powerful as his signature move, but it is still somewhat powerful nonetheless. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Ganondorf is considered to be a "clone" of Falcon since their moves are very similar.
