Some of you may know that I am a card-carrying member of F-Zero Twitter, a group of fans of Nintendo's racing franchise that might be even more beaten down than Browns Twitter. What you may not know is that F-Zero celebrated its 30th anniversary in November, leading fans to create the hashtag #FZEROVEMBER. I have compiled some of my favorite posts from the month in this Shacknews Cortex article.
I knew #Nintendo would do nothing for #FZERO's 30th Anniversary. But not even a tweet? You couldn't be bothered to schedule a tweet that takes a minute to write just to acknowledge a terrific game series you created that means a lot to so many people.— Katja #FZEROVEMBER 🎮 #FZERO30TH (@KatjaDivekick) November 22, 2020
Not a peep from the Big N about F-Zero on its birthday.
What a lovely video from @FZroNsonicManFa.
Hey @Nintendo @NintendoEurope @NintendoAmerica it's #FZERO officially 30th anniversary and we don't have a new game to celebrate this special day. You don't give a damn about it and this is really sad. You may think that #FZERO is dead, but it will live forever in our fan hearts pic.twitter.com/AJUnJKHgTa— Hey Nintendo! #OperationMuteCity (@HeyNintendo) November 21, 2020
Our buddy @HeyNintendo tweets at Nintendo everyday about bringing back the franchise.
This is one of my favorite images from all of FZEROVEMBER.
My favorite series turns 30 years old today, and it’s been 16 years without a new game. It’s up to fans to sing Happy Birthday, as Nintendo seems to have forgotten about it. 😓— Danjel Ricci (@DanjelRicci) November 21, 2020
Godspeed, F-Zero! #fzero30th #fzero pic.twitter.com/67riQw6fWs
The fan-made collectable community is surprisingly large on F-Zero Twitter.
Cool 3D model, but I am partial to the Fire Stingray.

Day 115 of whenever I feel like quitting nagging @Nintendo @NintendoAmerica @NintendoEurope to put Falcon Densetsu on streaming services.

F-Zero GP Legend isn't that bad of a show!
Day 5 of #FZEROVEMBER! Time for the best samurai out there, Samurai Goroh! I tried to add some old-japanese style, I mixed it with my style and this was the result. #FZero #FZero30th #FZeroNexus #SamuraiGoroh pic.twitter.com/TT2retsVPF— Capitana Zelda #FZEROVEMBER (@CapitanaZelda) November 6, 2020
There is so much awesome fan art out there!
Solid meme videos too.
Don't forget the runs!
Smash pro nickcucc posted some spicy Falcon gameplay.

There's even F-Zero cosplay.
Decided to put all of my #FZEROVEMBER drawings in one image and put them in the order of the F-Zero X machine select screen. Anyway, I had a lot of fun doing these and it was cool seeing other people's artwork as well, which was what motivated me to keep going.#fzero #nintendo pic.twitter.com/HTiq8YzqD9— LeoGeo (@LeoGeo_64) December 1, 2020
LeoGeo_64 was a total standout with the dedication to posting so many different drawings of pilots!
Best in the universe, remember that!
It's starting to look like we aren't getting a new F-Zero game this year, folks.
And that's fine...
To all the haters telling us to play Wipeout or Kart:
We are legion.
We will standby until it's time to race once more...
