The Night Thunder is the machine driven by the experienced old-timer: Silver Neelson. This machine was originally built by Neelson's childhood friend, Gold Hand in his middle-aged years as a memento to their long-lasting friendship. Gold was an amazing technical genius who was far ahead of the age he then lived in, which is how he installed a unique navigation program into the Night Thunder which features a carbon copy of his mind and emotions made possible through a series of complicated neuro experiments. Such a task was undertaken by Silver Neelson's lifelong friend for the purpose of remaining with and guiding his greatest companion even after death had eventually taken him.


[edit] F-Zero X

In the second console-based installment of the F-Zero franchise, the Night Thunder was introduced among the wide array of 25 fellow new machines. This particular machine completely relies on an overexaggerated amount of top-notch boost power and an above-average body structure which demands an overexperienced racer to properly control and use these attributes to their advantage while this vehicle's shaky control attribute commonly gets in the way.

[edit] F-Zero GX

In the most recent console-based installment of this series, Silver Neelson's Night Thunder returned with a supposed increase in it's unstable grip capability. Luckily, this machine's 'A'-ranked boost power makes up for this gaping flaw and it's above-average body strength stat allows for a slight margin of error for inexperienced pilots.

[edit] F-Zero Climax

In the most recent portable console-based title, the Night Thunder rumbles down the track with one of the most effective boost thrusters the current F-Zero Grand Prix has seen, and it's admirable outer trauma resistance is perfect for knocking other racers out of the way if it weren't for this machines extremely shaky handling potential.
