|The Galactic Space Federation's Mechanic|
John Tanaka is a pilot in the F-Zero series who works as a mechanic for the Space Federation.
In his youth, John studied at the University of Io under Mason Summer, the famed inventor of the G-Diffuser anti-gravity system. Working with the professor meant getting to know his daughter, Jody Summer with whom John quickly fell in love with. He even used the G-Diffuser system to develop a commercially-available flying robot known as the J-love-1 (featured in picture). However, after Mason Summer died during a mysterious crash to Leonid University, John vowed to look after Jody.
Unfortunately Jody needed no looking after, as she was quite the independent woman. John Tanaka ended up in the same unit as Jody Summer in the Galactic Federation where he got a job as a mechanic. His feelings for Jody are still a secret and he joined the F-Zero races for the sole reason of protecting her. However if by luck he manages to actually win, he's considering proposing to her.

The Wonder Wasp originated as a hobby project that was intended for recreational use.However when Jody Summer began racing, he applied heavy modifications to the machine to make it fit for the races. Although it being a homemade machine has brought doubts, he was very thorough about what parts he used. The result is a small lightweight machine capable of powerful boosts.
