Judge Racklas was a new Federal Judge of the Galactic Federation Circuit Court at the time of his capture by Mother Brain, and was only shown in one story of the Captain N: The Game Master comic series. Ridley, who is of the same species, had captured the Judge, taken his place, and charged Princess Lana with Mother Brain's crimes (Forty-six counts of Galactic Piracy, twenty-eight counts of Armed Planetary Robbery, eighteen counts of Solar Assault, fifteen counts of Star Smuggling, and 1,387 unpaid Space Parking Tickets). Captain Dare apprehended her, but when Samus attacked Ridley, he, as Judge Racklas, sentences the two to a life sentence on RX 338.
His character art, as well as Ridley's, are based on the original concept art for Ridley in Metroid's instruction manual. He is only shown bound by ropes on Metroid in a single frame. His fate is unknown.
