Mr. EAD (ミスター イー・エイ・ディ, misutā ī ei dī[?]) is an android created by the mysterious development group EAD, first appearing in F-Zero X. His objective in this Grand Prix is to complete the final testing phase for his IQ and AI programming. After his run on the last F-ZERO Grand Prix, he endured many trials: combat training, spy activities, college exams and many others. If all of his capabilities function as calculated, there should be nothing that can keep him from winning the Grand Prix. His victory will signify the birth of a flawless android. His favorite food is Italian. As he is an android, his age and gender are listed as unknown, though the games refer to him with male pronouns.
His creators entered him into the F-Zero Grand Prix of 2670 as his final testing phase to see if his programming was finally complete. When Captain Falcon instead won the Grand Prix, Mr. EAD was put into further training. He was entered into the Grand Prix the next year. His creators believe that if his capabilities function as calculated, nothing should keep him from winning - which will signify the creation of a perfect android.
In many ways, he resembles Mario: he has a mustache, a star on his belt, and likes Italian food. Additionally, in F-Zero GX while being interviewed, he claims that he wants to wear overalls every day. He also had an android brother, who was used for parts in his machine, the Great Star.
The name Mr. EAD is a reference to Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development (Nintendo EAD), the studio responsible for developing F-Zero X.
Exclusive to the F-Zero X Expansion Kit, if the player completes master class on all cups, they can see a special ending where Mr. EAD dances.
