Captain Falcon (キャプテン・ファルコン, Captain Falcon) returns as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. He was confirmed in Super Smash Bros. 4 during a live stream on July 14th, 2014, which is exactly 16 years after F-Zero X was released for the Nintendo 64 in Japan in 1998, alongside Lucina and Robin. Captain Falcon is once again voiced by Ryō Horikawa, using recycled voice clips from Brawl.
In the F-Zero racing scene, Captain Falcon uses his Blue Falcon to win big. His origins largely a mystery, he's made his way to the Smash Bros. battlefield to prove his worth outside the cockpit. He's got speed and power, and his distinct Falcon Punch leaves a dent. Start it in the air to surprise your foes!
- The lines bordering Captain Falcon's "eyes" change depending on the costume used.
- Of all the veterans that have appeared in and retain their voice clips from Brawl, Captain Falcon and Ganondorf are the only ones to not make use of knockback sound clips that weren't used in-game in Brawl despite having them.
- Captain Falcon, Yoshi, and Jigglypuff are the only characters who have voice clips that have been used in all four Super Smash Bros. installments.
- Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is the only game where Ness and Captain Falcon do not have the same availability.
