The Panzer Emerald is Lisa Brilliant's F-Zero machine, first appearing in F-Zero: GP Legend. It is very similar to Samurai Goroh's machine, the Fire Stingray, but is slightly lighter. It requires some degree of control technique.[1]

Profiles and statistics

F-Zero: GP Legend

The Panzer Emerald becomes available after clearing Lisa Brilliant's story mode. It's slow to accelerate with some fairly weak turning but a fast top speed.

F-Zero Climax

The Panzer Emerald becomes available after clearing the silver cup on novice or higher.

Design and namesake

Design

The Panzer Emerald is designed to be a streamlined, heavy-duty vehicle. In the very front is a narrow, streamlined nose with the cockpit. The back is much wider. Off to the sides are large air catchers with intake fans. On top of the rear is a triangular stabilizer fin. The engines are arranged in an upside-down V shape. The vehicle is primarily colored celadon with red stripes on the nose, intake covers, and fin.

Name

The Panzer Emerald combines the words panzer, a German tank and emerald, a gemstone.

Correlation

The panzer aspect of Panzer Emerald relates to the vehicle's sturdy build, strong armor, and weak boost whereas the emerald is exaggerated through the machine's slightly crystalline design and color.
