Playing as Captain Falcon, the player must defeat Sonic on Sand Ocean within a time limit of 0:30. Instead of trying to attack the player, the opponent will evade them whenever they get close. The player and opponent each have 1 stock.
The ranking the player receives is based on how much time the event takes to be completed. The specific conditions for this are listed below.

The event's two original previews.
When first incorporated into the game, this event was listed as #9 and its description was slightly different: "Kill your speedy opponent before time runs out!".
The preview image of this event was changed in Beta 1.2.4 due to Captain Falcon receiving new sprites.
