Although he may not seem like it, Mr. EAD is an android created for multitasking. However, he was entered in the F-Zero GP to test his skills and artificial intelligence response to the extreme situations a pilot has to deal with. He has a very high IQ as well, which makes him overall a nearly perfect android. All he has left to do is win the Grand Prix.
The Great Star, despite being a bulky machine, has terrible body strength. Its grip has a very low rating as well. What the Great Star has going for it is acceleration and boost power; however, it doesn't quite make up for its slippery feel and poor grip, which means that it is one of the hardest F-Zero machines to master.
