Special Sub-Topic: "F-Zero GX" Master
|Which of the following courses must you race around twice to complete one lap?|
Green Plant: Mobius Ring. Mobius Rings do exist in real life, and they're actually quite easy to make. Just take a thin strip of paper, twist it once, then attach the ends together, preferably with tape.
|In real life, which of the following courses would be marked with a "Bumpy Road" sign?|
Fire Field: Undulation. There are two areas of bumpy road on the track. Although it can throw you off if you're going too fast, it's generally no more than a nuisance.
|Each pilot has his/her/its own theme song that plays in the background of their Pilot Profile. That being said, which pilot's theme song contains the following phrase: "You never know if we are watching you through secret eyes"?|
Phoenix. Here's the full first verse of the song:
"You never know if we are watching you through secret eyes and
Find a place where you can hide underground
Change your name and change your face and
Feel the heat around you
It's the force; it's the order detective."
|Which of the following custom body parts used to make the custom machine called the "Splash Mermaid"?|
Aqua Goose. If you put together the right combination of parts, your machine will have a special name. The Splash Mermaid is just one such example. You can create it by combining the Aqua Goose body, Cyber Fox cockpit, and the Impulse 220 booster.
|Which of the following parts is the lightest booster you can get in "F-Zero GX"?|
Sunrise 140. Weighing in at a super-light 140 kg, the Sunrise 140, which you have from the beginning of the game, is a featherweight among custom parts. In fact, it's not just the lightest booster, but the lightest custom part in the game.
|There are two types of custom parts: GX parts and AX parts. (The term "AX" refers parts that are from the arcade version of the game, "F-Zero AX".) Which of the following is an AX part?|
Extreme-ZZ. Here's an easy way to tell GX parts from AX parts: When you're selecting parts from the menu, look at their default colour. If it's green, it's a GX part; if it's orange or pink, it's an AX part.
|In Chapter 6 of Story Mode (Black Shadow's Trap), Blood Falcon straps a speed-sensitive bomb on the Blue Falcon. On Hard Mode, the bomb will explode if your speed dips below how many km/h?|
750 km/h. On Normal Mode, the minimum speed is 700 km/h, and it's 800 km/h on Very Hard. These objectives are easy to meet if you can memorize the track.
|What AX machine are you able to unlock by beating Story Mode Chapter 7 (The F-Zero Grand Prix) on Very Hard?|
Pink Spider. The Pink Spider is piloted by the triplets Dai, San, and Gen. Its stats are CCA, and it weighs 1100 kg.
|What design can be found frequently on Digi-Boy's clothes as well as on his portable computer?|
A happy face. More specifically, it's a happy face with its tongue sticking out. It's possibly a symbol of cockiness, although Digi-Boy has never made any cockiness very obvious.
|The area known as Fire Field was once what?|
A mine. It was once one of the largest mines in the galaxy. However, the company that owned the mine got too greedy. Thus, they kept digging deeper and deeper until they hit an underground magma chamber. This destroyed the mine and sent the mining company to the brink of bankruptcy. Due to this, as a last-ditch effort to save themselves from financial ruin, the company teamed up with the F-Zero Execution Project to bring the F-Zero Grand Prix to this pit of fire.
