Pico was a former soldier enlisted in the Polipoto Army and the leader of a special fighting unit. It's unknown as to the reason why he eventually left the ranks, most likely due to his uncontrollable temper, vicious strength, and merciless demeanor. He later took up the position of a hitman-for-hire, putting his iron will and sharpedge focus to proper use, well-fitting for such a violent creature. But Pico's tie-ins with many big-name criminals such as Zoda eventually marked him as a major target for the Galactic Space Federation and he went on the run. He eventually stumbled across the F-Zero circuit and signed up in order to conceal himself among the throngs of competitors. He arranged an underground business to build the Wild Goose for him and the Federation hasn't been able to catch him to date.

[edit] F-Zero SNES

In the very first installment in which Pico officially appeared, the only physical appearances he made were on print, such as promotional posters for the game, the back of the official game box, and the instruction manual written for the game. He appeared very scrawny and hunched in this game, and was presented to have a grudging hate for the human race and a fierce ambition to show them up in the F-Zero Grand Prix, being that the only other competitors for him at this point were three humans.


[edit] F-Zero X

In the second console-based installment of the F-Zero franchise, Pico undergoes a dramatic change in the physical sense. His overall buggy and slightly creepy appearance is replaced with a tall, bulky exterior and a complete no-nonsense expression about his face. With his original occupation and intentions intact, F-Zero X really is the installment which grounded Pico's character permanently.

[edit] F-Zero GX

In the most recent console-based title, Pico's remodeled appearance remains along with recorded dialogue to accompany it. While his high-pitched, goofy voice didn't do justice to his appearance at all, his sharp killing instincts and aggression are still made apparent in the various F-Zero TV interviews and the Master Class Video you can unlock for him.

[edit] F-Zero Climax

Due to the lack of an actual storyline, besides being based off of the finale to F-Zero Falcon Legend(character-wise), Pico shows up in this installment with all-around balanced stats at the cost of a slightly weakened boost.


[edit] F-Zero Legend of Falcon

Even though it may have happened to Samurai Goroh, the personality that has supplemented Pico throughout every video game installment he has been in up to the point of this anime adaptation remains intact and even slightly enhanced. He is still a dangerously well-trained hitman-for-hire with an unstoppable ambition to get his jobs done quickly and efficiently, but he is never seen actually racing in any F-Zero Grand Prix races with his Wild Goose. He rather uses it as a form of typical urban and rural transportation.
