The Wild Goose is the machine of choice for the highly-trained assassin, Pico. It was originally designed to be a machine of war by a high-ranking sergeant in the Polipoto army: Sergeant Lipo. Belonging to the organization known as Death Window, located on the planet Death Wind, Lipo designed this craft to withstand heavy enemy fire and persist against constant attacks with the ability to reach top speeds of over 900 km/h. After the heated battles amongst the Polipoto army had dissolved, the Wild Goose was retired from it's original military duties and enlisted as an F-Zero machine after it's structural and speed potential was recognized by the F-Zero Commitee. Since this machine was designed for Polipotans, it can only be driven by this species and no other, which is how Pico ended up it's official pilot, wishing to enter the F-Zero after becoming a full-time assassin-for-hire following the war's end on his planet. This particular machine has marvelous acceleration and body power, but greatly lacks in the handling and boost departments.

[edit] F-Zero SNES

In the very first installment in which the Wild Goose machine officially appeared, it proved itself to be the second-fastest machine on the track in terms of acceleration(leading behind the Fire Stingray)and boasted the strongest body out of all four selectable vehicles. Due to this, the Wild Goose's turbo-boosting power was less than average by comparison with the other three machines.

[edit] F-Zero X

In the second console-based installment of the F-Zero franchise, the Wild Goose's appearance barely underwent any serious changes like the Blue Falcon and Fire Stingray did. Instead, the shape of the front end and back thruster of this machine was sharpened-out and lengthened. In terms of stat, the great acceleration remains the same while the body stat has diminished somewhat when stacked up against other machines such as the Black Bull.

[edit] F-Zero GX

In the most recent console-based installment of this series, Pico's Wild Goose returns with a bloodthirsty vengeance! To the dismay of veteran users, this machine unfortunately loses a good deal of it's advantageous acceleration stat and the lowered body stat that was first seen in F-Zero X remains the same. To add to it, the cornering abilities brought on by the Wild Goose's drifting is noticably lackluster at best.

[edit] F-Zero Climax

In the most recent portable console-based title, the Wild Goose reforms it's disadvantages that were unfortunately wrought back in F-Zero GX with the warmly-welcomed return of it's marvelous speed stat! It's mid-range/higher-than-average body stat is still there, but the handling stat of this machine fortunately witnesses a drastic increase!
