Black Shadow is an F-Zero pilot and one of the most prominent villains in the entire F-Zero series. He pilots the Black Bull.


Black Shadow is the self-proclaimed master of evil and leads an expansive organization known as Dark Million, consisting of big names such as Zoda and Miss Killer. He is the naturally sworn archenemy of Captain Falcon, the rock-solid bounty hunter who has taken in more of his trusted underlings than he can even begin to count, putting an endless string of his carefully thought-out plans to ruin. His overall origin is unknown other than that he's an extremely powerful and strong-willed entity with the unstoppable ambition to take over the Universe and enslave everyone in it. To get closer to this goal, Black Shadow knows that the only way this is going to happen is if Captain Falcon is out of the picture. And since the only way that this virtually omnivorous villain can track him down is in the F-Zero Grand Prix circuit, his only choice was to have his minions craft a large and deadly machine for him, the Black Bull, and enter the races himself with the intention of killing the legendary bounty hunter over live race feeds spanning the entire galaxy and beyond!
