Gomar and Shioh are a pair of aliens from the planet Huckmine. They are permanently and mentally bonded to each other as per their race's natural birthing instinct: once a pair of the same sex is born next to each other(by emerging from seed pods sprouting from the ground), they immediately become a solid set of two and literally live their lives through each other as an important and seemingly irreplacable partner to the other. This natural process lasts until the pair eventually find mates of the opposite sex and finally split through marriage, forging an entirely new group of separate pairs. Gomar is a short and stout creature with a vast intelligence, while Shioh is tall and athletic. Both envy each other's personal attributes while immensely respecting and relying on them at the same time. As Gomar and Shioh are perfectly aware of the ancient custom of inevitable splitting belonging to their species, they found it fit to enter the F-Zero circuit due to their great love towards the sport and the golden opportunity of further cooperative skills it offers both of them. This goal was a challenge however, as the F-Zero committee declined Gomar and Shioh's entry as they didn't see it fit to allow two different pilots to control the same machine, considering it a form of cheating. Through much unknown persuasion from the mysterious EAD cooperation in regards to the Huckmine race and their completely honest and determined behaviour, the commitee eventually gave in and EAD crafted the versatile and fitting Twin Norrita machine for the duo to race in. As Gomar and Shioh plan to find pairs and marry soon at the respectable age of 102, their time in the F-Zero may soon be coming to an end.

[edit] F-Zero X

In the second console-based installment of the F-Zero franchise, Gomar and Shioh were introduced as a rather odd-looking pair of aliens with a steady ambition to ultimately win the F-Zero Grand Prix with the combined powers of their unbreakable friendship and natural piloting skills.

[edit] F-Zero GX

In the most recent console-based title, Gomar and Shioh become noticably more boastful and less modest as they came off as back in F-Zero X, always gloating about how absolute a singled-out human effort is and how two beings working toward the same challenging goal is always the better road to take. In the opening cutscene to Mission 3 of F-Zero GX's StoryMode, Shioh can be seen fighting over a tabletop with Super Arrow as Captain Falcon enters the pub, with Gomar looking on helplessly.

[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), Gomar and Shioh return as the unstoppable duo with a wonderful speed and grip level, with the utterly weak body strength ultimately holding it back in most situations.

[edit] F-Zero Legend of Falcon

In the anime adaptation, Gomar and Shioh are introduced as a pair of conning salesman who have just traveled to Earth from Huckmine with the intent of joining the ranks of Dark Million under the leadership of Black Shadow. They also run into Lucy Liberty whom they hawk a bunch of useless weight-loss products on. Through unseen circumstances, Lucy eventually helps the pair perfect the prototype Twin Norrita's twin cockpit and engine design, allowing them to race for themselves.
