The Horrific Grand Finale is an event that took place in the F-Zero series, though was never showcased in any video game - just mentioned several times.
The event was first described in the Nintendo 64 video game F-Zero X, which explains that during an F-Zero grand prix, a crash occurred that killed fourteen drivers. The only one to escape was Super Arrow, who ended up winning the race. After that event took place, the Space Federation banned any future F-Zero races, though that obviously didn't stop the hardcore, who took the events and races underground.
Some of the major racers who went underground include -
- Zoda and
- Dr. Robert Stuart's father.
Eventually, Super Arrow uttered a statement to the Space Federation that helped delete the ban on the sport, allowing the ones that decided not to go underground race once again.
Another similar accident simply called the "Huge Accident" caused many injuries, though no deaths.
