The Rainbow Phoenix is an F-Zero machine piloted by Phoenix.
The Rainbow Phoenix is usually used as an undercover patrol car. It was not built by the Galactic Space Police, though Phoenix designed and built it himself in secret. It is tuned to be a very easy machine for novice pilots to control. Since it is actually a machine from the future made with an unknown advanced technology it has the ability to win the championship easily. Because of this unfair advantage, a limiter has been installed to reduce its capabilities. The Rainbow Phoenix currently runs at only 80 percent of its potential. It is a very easy to control machine, and most of its abilities are balanced much like the Blue Falcon.
