Are you in agony... Are you in pain? Stay away from me, if you don't want to suffer more.

Blood Falcon is a major antagonist in the F-Zero series, making his debut in F-Zero X. He is a clone of Captain Falcon who was created by Black Shadow, who instructed him to commit crimes. His age is four biologically, but is stated to be 37 physically. He drives the F-Zero Machine known as Blood Hawk.
Blood Falcon is voiced by Eric Kelso in F-Zero GX and by Banjō Ginga in F-Zero: GP Legend.
Blood Falcon bears a huge resemblance to Captain Falcon himself. He, however, has a red outfit with gray boots. His helmet is purple with a silver skull in place of a falcon, and he wears purple gloves, a large collar, a brown belt with a gray buckle, a large metal shoulder-guard, and a yellow scarf.
Blood Falcon was created from DNA that was stolen from Captain Falcon after the latter accidentally crashed his Blue Falcon and fell into a coma until he was hospitalized. The Blood Falcon was raised by the Black Shadow. Though human, he questioned his true nature. Despite this, the Blood Falcon accepted crime to be his destiny and started serving the Black Shadow.
Blood Falcon states that he is the only one who can be the true Captain Falcon, but in the anime, the Blood Falcon is not the only clone of Captain Falcon, being one of many Blood Falcons.
Blood Falcon is eventually defeated because his master had taken a large chunk of the Blood Hawk's grip away as a trade off for boost, giving the Blood Falcon a low-traction, fast car which ultimately led to his defeat.
