The Great Star is Mr. EAD's machine in the F-Zero series since F-Zero X. It was designed by a Shiggs Mapone, who is rumored to be in charge of a group known as "EAD". Mapone designed the Great Star to have a strong boost, but the body is weak and the grip is below average.

Along with MR. EAD himself, the Great Star is a reference to the Mario franchise. The Great Star is named after the Super Stars that are collected in several games, with the logo of the machine having a Super Star image between the words "Great" and "Star". According to an interview with F-Zero TV, the Great Star is recycled from parts of Mr. EAD's android brother. The designer, Shiggs Mapone, is also a reference to the creator of both the Mario and F-Zero series, Shigeru Miyamoto.

This machine was designed by Shiggs Mapone, rumored to be the head of a mysterious underground development group known as EAD. Mapone took on the design of the Great Star with visions of it achieving F-Zero Grand Prix championship status. Mapone totally neglected stability when designing this machine, but added a very strong booster--he likely did this because he knew the pilot manning the machine would be an invulnerable android.

F-Zero GP Legend

The Great Star is unlocked by maxing out Rick Wheeler's prize money in Story mode at $255,000,000. The acceleration is average with some decent cornering and good top speed.

The Great Star becomes available after clearing the bronze cup on expert or higher.
