Final Smash - Blue Falcon:
Uses his F-Zero to smash into an opponent, knocking them to Port Aero Smith, where he proceeds to splatter them. Damage is 40, but overall it’s a guaranteed KO. You need to be standing as close as possible to an opponent for it to work, as you need to hit them with the initial strike. If you hit multiple opponents, you will splatter all of them, but the KO potential goes down.

C.Falcon is fast, but only when dashing. His attacks are fairly short range, but this is offset by most of his B moves. Use the Raptor Boost and Falcon Kick from a distance to build up damage, then go in for the kill with either a well-timed Falcon Punch (if you’re facing multiple enemies and they are distracted) or a couple charged attacks. Don’t let your opponent get too much distance, as he is pretty defenseless past the range of his kick.

Defense Strategy:
Keep your distance. Aerials work good for the kill. Don’t underestimate his speed though, in the hands of a good player he can run circles around most other characters. Whenever you see a body part start to flash orange, shield or get away, as something big is coming. Use as many projectiles as you can as he approaches, then try to stay behind him.

From Forum:

Here are some extra comments from the members of our forums for Captain Falcon...

A bounty hunter and star of the F-Zero Grand Prix, Captain Falcon returns to show opponents his moves. One of the fastest characters in the game - only dwarfed by Sonic - the Captain utilises a blend of swift moves such as his rapid punch combo and powerful blasts such as the famous Falcon Punch. A good balance of both is key to mastering Captain Falcon.

How to unlock: Play 70 Brawls, then challenge him; complete Classic on normal or harder in under 12 minutes, then challenge him; get him to join your team in the Subspace Emissary.

Special moves
Standard: Falcon Punch. Captain Falcon charges up before unleashing a powerful punch that gives the shape of a falcon in flames. If the opposite direction is pressed when he is charging, he will turn around and punch the other way. This is more powerful than the standard Falcon Punch.

Side: Raptor Boost. Captain Falcon dashes forward with his fist, giving an uppercut to those he hits. It can be used in the air for recovery purposes.

Up: Falcon Dive. Captain Falcon Dives upwards, grabbing anyone who gets in his way and blasting them back in an explosion. If he grabs someone with this, he is able to perform the move again.

Down: Falcon Kick. Catain Falcon charges forward with his foot covered in flames. If used in the air, he will charge downwards at an angle with his foot.

Final Smash: Blue Falcon. Captain Falcon summons his F-Zero ship - the Blue Falcon - to dash in front of him. If it hits anyone, he will jump in as they are knocked on to an F-Zero track, where he drives straight in to them to knock them back on to the stage. This is the only cinematic Final Smash in the game.

Captain Falcon has a really popular move FALCON PUNCH!Smile Ganondorf is a clone of him but I say captain falcon is better. Ganondorf is slightly powerful but captain falcon has way better speed.

No Ganandorf is the worst character in the game as he is only slightly stronger but substantially slower. Also almost if not every brawl tier has placed him last or at very least in the lowest tiering group lol.
