Story (F-Zero: GP Legend)
The story mode in F-Zero: GP Legend has intertwining segments between eight of the playable characters: Rick Wheeler, Captain Falcon, Jody Summer, Jack Levin, Samurai Goroh, Lisa Brilliant, Black Shadow, and Zoda. Each pilot has five chapters each, with an optional one for Rick and Captain Falcon if certain requirements are met, earning cash by completing objectives. The player initially starts with only Rick Wheeler's storyline, with other characters opening upon meeting them in missions. Each pilot can earn up to $2.55 billion. Completing story lines and maxing out earnings unlocks various machines.
Order of events
The timeline for F-Zero: GP Legend's story is unclear, as several character events are either isolated from or conflict with other characters, which means some events can happen at several possible time periods or at the same time. Additionally, due to the order most events need to be in, alternate perspectives between characters, and differing routes, the episodes may not line up with each other properly. Below is an example of a possible timeline based on points where pivotal characters interact with each other.
Captain Falcon catches up to Dr. Clash right when Zoda comes to kidnap him, which happens at the end of Captain Falcon #1 and the start of Zoda #1. Meanwhile, Rick Wheeler chases down Octoman in Rick Wheeler #1. Elsewhere, Samurai Goroh gets poisoned in his vehicle in Samurai Goroh #1 and Black Shadow causes Lisa Brilliant to get in an accident during Lisa Brilliant #1 and Black Shadow #1.
Rick notices Zoda and joins Captain Falcon in chasing him, being the mission for Rick Wheeler #2, Captain Falcon #2, and Zoda #1. During this, Jody Summer takes on Michael Chain in Jody Summer #1 and Jack Levin tests himself against Dr. Stewart in Jack Levin #1.
After losing Zoda, Rick heads to Fire Field and Captain Falcon heads to Red Canyon. During their travel, Samurai Goroh and Lisa Brilliant reunite and race each other in Samurai Goroh #2 and Lisa Brilliant #2. Jack is alerted about Michael Chain in Jack Levin #2.
At Red Canyon, Captain Falcon crosses paths with Samurai Goroh in Captain Falcon #3 and Samurai Goroh #3. Elsewhere, Rick races in Fire Field during Rick Wheeler #3, and Lisa runs into Antonio Guster in Lisa Brilliant #3. Zoda and Black Shadow race against each other in an alternate dimension during Black Shadow #2 and Zoda #2.
Captain Falcon crosses Blood Falcon while in Port Town during Captain Falcon #4, meeting Lisa at the end of the race, who soon travels to Mute City and crosses with Zoda in Lisa Brilliant #4 and Zoda #3. Meanwhile, Samurai Goroh meets Black Shadow in Samurai Goroh #4 and Black Shadow #3.
Jack learns about Jody's race against Blood Falcon and goes to help during Jody Summer #2 and Jack Levin #3. Meanwhile, Samurai Goroh takes on Antonio Guster in Samurai Goroh #5 and Lisa takes on Black Shadow in Lisa Brilliant #5.
When Rick arrives, Jack tells him Blood Falcon has taken Jody, causing Rick to chase down Blood Falcon in Rick Wheeler #4. Jody is rescued at the end of Rick Wheeler #4, Jody Summer #3, and Jack Levin #3, and Jody tells Rick that Zoda may enter the race at Big Blue.
After being rescued, Jody tests herself against Jack and Dr. Stewart during Jody Summer #4 and Jack Levin #4. She then gets the help of Captain Falcon to take down Blood Falcon during Jody Summer #5 and Captain Falcon #X.
After helping Jody, Captain Falcon goes to confront Black Shadow in Captain Falcon #5 and Black Shadow #4. Meanwhile, Rick, Jack, and Zoda race each other during Rick Wheeler #5, Jack Levin #5, and Zoda #5.
