%%* CastOfSnowflakes

to:

%%* CastOfSnowflakes* CastOfSnowflakes: Rarely will a two characters with much in common be playable in the same game, even if they have a direct relationship with each other.



%%* FictionalSport

to:

%%* FictionalSport* FictionalSport: ''F Zero'' is floating rally racing, or perhaps formula 1.

%%* {{Leitmotif}}[=/=]BootstrappedTheme[=/=]RecurringRiff: There's a reason the themes for Big Blue and ''especially'' Mute City are so well-known.
%%
%% The "reason" needs to be stated, otherwise this is a Zero-Context Example. Also, tropes should not be slashed together.

well-known, as they double as BootstrappedTheme and RecurringRiff, appearing many times and having many different variation across the series.



%%* VehicularCombat

to:

%%* VehicularCombat* VehicularCombat: Destroying other vehicles through ramming is as legitimate a victory strategy as beating them to the finish line.



%%* WackyRacing

to:

%%* WackyRacing* WackyRacing: Fairly tame from the racers themselves, as actions unrelated to course progression are rater limited. Most of the wackiness comes from the courses themselves, ranging from ramps to pools of lava right on the track.

** Baba had nothing about that could be construed as sinister or villainous at all. He was apparently made a villain ''just because''.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: The anime notoriously did this to ''half the cast'':
** Pico and Beastman were originally well [[AntiHero meaning but morally questionable]] characters who had their negative qualities exaggerated.
** Bio-Rex and The Skull were obviously made into villains because they [[BeautyEqualsGoodness looked like villains]].
** Baba had nothing about that could be construed as sinister or villainous at all. He was apparently made a villain ''just because''.
** Octoman and Leon make the least sense, both being made into petty crooks despite not only being explicitly good-guys ingame, but also probably the nicest and friendliest members of the cast.

* StuffBlowingUp: Even if you lose the rest of your [[LifeMeter energy meter]] by crashing into a wall or running over a [[EnergyAbsorption drain strip]], your vehicle ''will'' [[MadeOfExplodium explode in an overly dramatic fashion]].

* SubsystemDamage: In the original ''F-Zero'' and in ''F-Zero'': Maximum Velocity, your vehicle's top speed drops significantly if you take enough damage. In this state, your vehicle starts [[ShowsDamage smoking and sparking]], an alarm sounds, and your LifeMeter flashes. You need to get to the pit area quickly in this state in order to get repaired enough to get out of this state.

** There's mention of a previous racing tournament, F-MAX. All we know is that it ended in a terrible car crash.

* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Not actually necessary, because Captain Falcon clone Blood Falcon already plays entirely different from him. The scientists working for Black Shadow [[GenreSavvy realized that]] they wouldn't be able to beat Captain Falcon using an identical machine.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: In ''GX'', using the custom machine maker to make a machine with A-rank in body (making it extremely durable), boost (huge punch of speed from the boost), and grip (no loss of speed when cornering) may seem like the logically best idea given that those three stats along with machine weight are the only practical information shown in machine select...until you take a look at its performance graph and try the machine out for yourself, and discover that your "A-A-A" machine handles and accelerates like a giant boulder.

* {{Badass}}: Obviously, Captain Falcon is ''the'' prime example, but you can make cases for several other characters in the games and anime.



* BecomingTheMask: Beastman uses an intimidating facade and costume to hide the fact that he's extremely shy from any potential enemies... but he might actually be turning into a real {{Badass}} gradually.

** Still, some fans see Mr. Zero as a {{Badass}} simply for having the guts to interview said characters. '''Black Shadow himself''' is also impressed, and even offers Mr. Zero [[EqualOpportunityEvil the chance to work for him.]] Whether or not this counts as BadassUnintentional or MistakenForBadass is up to you.

* LovableRogue: Samurai Goroh and his entire crew in the anime. Goroh, in particular, is a {{Badass}} {{Samurai}} [[AdaptationalBadass who is a complete 180 degrees turn]] from his ButtMonkey status in ''GX''. He even helps out Ryu on several occasions and is something of a mentor to him.

* PsychoForHire: Pico. Once a member of a special assassination unit and one of the bloodthristiest racers around. He still takes hits on the side and is shown to be a {{Badass}} ColdSniper in his clip from ''GX''. He's more or less the same in the anime, minus a good deal of the chaos and with added composure.

* ScarfOfAsskicking: Both Captain and Blood Falcon have one. The former's is made even more {{badass}} in an eyecatcher from the latter half of the anime.

* WorldOfBadass: When you can go toe-to-toe with names such as Captain Falcon and Black Shadow without batting so much as an eye, you qualify for the mantle of {{badass}}ery. Hell, even Mr. Zero, ''your run-of-the-mill commentator'', is seen as a badass simply for having the guts to ''interview'' many of the evil/creepy characters in the series. It is should be noted that few characters have superpowers; i.e. a World of BadassNormal.
