Players control fast hovering craft and use their speed-boosting abilities to navigate through the courses as quickly as possible. The game takes place in the year 2560, where multi-billionaires with lethargic lifestyles created a new form of entertainment based on the Formula One races called "F-Zero".
In the Super Smash Flash series
Captain Falcon appears for the first time in F-Zero, although he is never seen in-game and only his vehichle, the Blue Falcon, appears. Captain Falcon himself appears in Super Smash Flash and Super Smash Flash 2 as a playable character. All his move are originated from the Super Smash Bros. series. However, because a certain Captain Falcon sprite sheet, many people was questioned if his standard special move was going to be Falcon Gun (with the Falcon Punch relocated as his side special move), which he only used in an eight-paged comic from the F-Zero Instruction Manual, as well, as other non-game F-Zero media. The stage, Sand Ocean, is based on a racing track in this game.
