The Fat Shark is a car designed by Don Genie, and financed by his vast fortune. As such it was given extraordinary capabilities. Because Don Genie has many enemies, he made extra certain the machine had a powerful body to protect him. The result leaves it with above average speed, but makes the machine very difficult to control. It has the second highest top speed in F-Zero GX (losing only to Black Bull).
