(A/N: This fic takes place in the darkened world that Captain Falcon and Blood Falcon were transported to in episode 38 of the F-ZERO: Falcon Densetsu. How did Falcon get out of the darkness alive? How did he make the decision to cloak his identity for a while? What the heck happened to Blood Falcon? Contains spoilers of the Falcon Densetsu anime. I suggest you search it up on YouTube and watch it.)
Scream from the Darkness II: the Screech of the Falcons
Captain Falcon looked over his shoulder, his mind foggy with thoughts. Falcon saw what he thought to be the last of the world he knew: Ryu Suzaku staring in protest, shock, and disbelief, along with his sister screaming his name. Falcon couldn't help but slam his hand on his lap and shake his head pitifully, feeling that he failed his mission to fully train Ryu as the savior of the galaxy, and to defeat Black Shadow and bring peace to the galaxy.
The Blue Falcon was thrown into the wormhole created by the three boost fires activating at the same time. Such a reaction could only happen with that one number of three.
The Captain glanced forward to see his F-Zero machine plummeting nose-first onto the darkened void which he dubbed, "Darkness Valley." With an almighty thump, the pure force of the landing made the Captain's head collide with his steering wheel, knocking him out cold....
Meanwhile, Blood Falcon refused to be sucked into the void. Water was now spraying all over the Blood Hawk and over the purple wormhole. He frantically pulled the "Blood Fire" switch over and over again, not knowing that the boost that he was trying to use could only be of assistance once every twelve hours. Choked responses came from the Blood Hawk, it was almost pitifully trying to get it's way out of the vortex's gravitational pull. Flecks of the "Blood Fire" were seen by Blood, Ryu, and Jody.
In the end, however, the Blood Hawk's remaining power died from extensive use, leading Blood Falcon to his so called, "Untimely Demise."
Captain Falcon immediately awoke three hours after he lost consciousness in the Blue Falcon. His head was aching severely, even though it was protected by the red helmet he wore almost daily. He grimanced and took it off for a few moments.
Falcon held his forehead with sweat pouring down his hair in agony and pain. His emerald eyes were sealed shut by his eyelids, a natural reaction to such a beating. Before the Captain could completely regain focous and tame his throbbing forehead, his machine was rammed by the Blood Hawk. The bastard. He thought to himself.
It was all too true, the Blood Hawk was, indeed, ramming the Blue Falcon. Blood Falcon had snapped out of his unintended rest and immediately carried on his mission to destroy Captain Falcon, wether or not he survived or his master knew of his success. Blood repeatedly smashed it's hull onto the Falcon's side wing, trying to get enough energy knocked out of the Blue Falcon to do "Blood Fire."
Captain Falcon's F-Zero reflexes came back to him, and before Blood Falcon could've smashed into the Blue Falcon's hull one last time, it reared forward. The Blood Hawk missed by half a centimeter.
Falcon made his machine do a one-eighty to face Blood. Neither of them spoke, for they were too concentrated on defeating the opposing Falcon.
The Blood Hawk made another futile attack on the Blue Falcon. Meanwhilist, the Blue Falcon countered and shoved it's nose up the bottom of the Blood Hawk. (A/N: I mean, directly under the machine, where the hover plates are.)
Captain Falcon immediately set his machine to high altitude, and as it responded smoothly, the Blood Hawk (along with Blood Falcon) was losing it's grip on the wet ground of the darkness, it's E Grip rating was starting to take effect.
Blood flailed his arms, frantic to get out of this helpless position. The Blue Falcon showed no mercy as it shoved it's burdsome load into turning on it's side.
The Blood Hawk was about to tip upside down, but fortunately for Blood Falcon, in his frantic flailing panic, he hit the "eject" button on his machine's main controls and was almost spat out of the machine as it fell.
He bounced, skitted, and scraped himself against the unforgiving ground. Blood's red, purple, and gray outfit was dampened to such an extent, that the red portion resembled actual blood. His yellow scarf was torn and messy, Blood growled in annoyance and wrapped the remaining bits of it around his neck.
Captain Falcon witnessed his opponent skid across the darkened floor and jammed his helmet on, ready to fight hand-to-hand. The Blue Falcon flew away several yards before charging at full power. At the last second, before it collided with the Blood Hawk, Captain Falcon lept out of his loyal machine. The momentum sent the Captain straight toward Blood Falcon's crumpled form.
Just as the Blue Falcon collided with the Blood Hawk, destroying part of the cockpit, Captain Falcon landed a mind-blowing punch at Blood Falcon.
Blood almost yelped in surprise and pain. Unlike actual and natural DNA, Blood Falcon's artificial DNA was easy to push around, much like a solid liquid. Think jello. When Jody was attacking Blood Falcon for the first time, his DNA was expecting an attack and artificially hardened.
However, this experience came by surprise and Blood didn't have any time to harden his muscles and skin to protect himself.
Captain Falcon used Blood as a springboard after he landed that almost fatal punch. The Captain landed several yards away, where the Blue Falcon had auto-parked. Blood Falcon roared in anger and stood up, touching his bruised skin. Their triangular eyes both met, hatred glared in both.
Suddently, they both felt a pull in their stomachs...just as the machines' engines glowed. Their machine's Reactor Mites were channeling their power toward their brawling masters.
Only on occasions like this did an untamed and a fairly tamed Reactor Mite would channel their power to the driver of the F-Zero Machine they were in. Black Shadow had constantly concentrated on taming his Reactor Mite with huge success. Now it seemed like when he called his machine holding a Reactor, it responded like it was a living being.
The two Falcon's bodies began to glow like their machines. Captain Falcon's body was covered with a blue aura, Blood Falcon's was a satin-red. This was the final stand between Falcon and Falcon. It was almost like the Reactor Mites knew that after this battle, only one Falcon would remain.
Blood Falcon channeled most of his energy into his arms, favoring power over rediculous speed. Captain Falcon stared at Blood's glowing arms and decided he should match that with the same thing Blood gave up.
Blood made the first move, almost killing Falcon with it. He threw a wild punch with his glowing fist, while Falcon narrowly dodged the attack. Captain Falcon kicked Blood's legs, causing the other Falcon to fall on his knees.
The rest of the fight went on in a sort of cycle: Blood would try and attack the Captain, while he ran off and repeatedly attacked Blood again and again.
Both of the Falcons were sweating, they were exhausted and badly bruised. Blood managed to get a few powerful swipes on the Captain, but also took minor recoil damage to his arms. They finally summoned the strength to do the remaining and final blows to one another.
Blood charged at Falcon, unknowingly spending the rest of his remaining Reactor Mite power on that one missed punch. Captain Falcon noticed Blood Falcon's aura dissapear and finally formed the final attack he would use.
"EVEN IF YOU DO BEAT ME, YOU'LL STILL DIE, AND MASTER BLACK SHADOW WILL DESTROY THE GALAXY!!!!!!!!" Blood roared.
Captain Falcon ran as fast as possible at Blood Falcon, his Reactor power switched from his legs to his hands at the last moment. He did one last act with his charged legs, and that was leaping into the air.
"FALCON PUNCH!!!!" Falcon shouted. An almighty bang, along with millions of sparks flew from his hand. The sheer force of the punch was enough to crack Blood's skull, but better yet, the sparks electrocuted him. Foam spread from the corners of Blood's mouth.
"ARRRGGHH!!!" was the last thing he shouted before dying right on the spot. Captain Falcon, completely exhausted, stumbled over to his fallen opponent and kicked the helmet off of Blood's head.
Falcon couldn't help but widen his eyes and gasp...Blood Falcon's face was a torn, burned mess. Several patches of bone could've been seen. This was the true reason why he had been named "Blood Falcon", not the fact he was born from Falcon's own blood.
Captain Falcon spent quite a while trying to turn the Blood Hawk right-side-up again. He had remembered the effects of using the Boost Fire in a small, concealed area like the cavern that Ryu, Blood, and himself had been brawling in. Falcon also remembered the time when he was stuck with Ryu and Zoda in the Darkness, and how the Boost Fire saved their lives.
After several attempts, the Blood Hawk turned right-side-up after a small collision. Falcon lept out of his machine and started breaking off the hood. He threw wild punches and gave "Falcon kicks" to the Blood Hawk's hood, slightly cracking it. "Stupid..." he round-housed the hood, "Car!"
Falcon finally cracked the hood in two when he used the Blue Falcon to smash against the Blood Hawk's front. Once again, the Captain lept out of the Blue Falcon and retrieved the Reactor Mite. It glowed brightly, making Falcon squint...even with his visor on.
The Captain immediately opened his machine's hood and placed the Reactor Mite next to his original one. There was no initial space for the new Reactor, but it was secured in a small space beneath various pipes, engine parts, and the regular things you would find in a car's hood.
He smirked to himself before climbing into his cockpit. Captain Falcon reached for his Boost Fire switch, immediately shouting, "BOOST FIRE!" Without the crazy voice activation, the machine would've responded with a regular boost. The Blue Falcon's engines roared as it lurched forward. All of the various switches and gadgets on the main control panel glowed brightly, signaling Falcon's success.
The Blue Falcon boosted a good few hundred feet before doing a spin-attack. Not surpringly to the Captain, it stayed put on a straight path, instead of going in random directions like a traditional car would.
As expected, a wormhole slowly emerged in front of Falcon's machine as he charged forward. A loud crash was the last thing Falcon heard in the darkness, and the last thing the darkness would hear, as the machine and the wormhole vanished.
Captain Falcon squinted once again, letting his eyes get used to the sunlight. He had re-appered outside of the cavern, the same one that transported him to the darkness. It was sundown, but yet, the small amout of light slightly harmed his eyes with every blink.
Eventually, Falcon regained his resistance against the once blinding rays of the sun and drove to the hidden Falcon Flyer. His loyal spacecraft was sitting behind a large cluster of rocks. A hatch opened on the bottom of the spacecraft, along with an un-earthly light. Captain Falcon drove to it, like he would if he took his machine to the grocery store.
The light abducted the Blue Falcon, and instantly, it took off.
-Seven Days Later-
Captain Falcon had been living under a new name and has been driving a new machine. He was now the Berserker, a heavily cloaked figure that hid his face via hood. The Blue Falcon had been holographically cloaked as the "Red Bull". It's stats remained the same, except the fact it had an A body rating.
Falcon had decided to fake his own death to spy on the Dark Million Orginization. And he could've admitted that it couldn't have worked any better. Don Genie, one of Black Shadow's many accomplises, has hired "Berserker" to win the F-Zero races in order to earn funds for Dark Million. It was a small price to pay, seeing that even though they may win the rest of the F-Zero Championship Races, the information he would give to Ryu and the others would be enough to take down Black Shadow's evil dream.
Right now, Falcon was driving in the cold, stormy training fields of Dark Million...thinking about how he would get out of this pickle...
(Summary for chapter: After being sucked in through the portal leading to the Darkness, Captain Falcon and Blood Falcon both fight to the death.
