[[folder:Star Fox]]
The band of adventurers-for-hire after whom the series is named. Most of its members were originally trained at the [[RedShirtArmy Cornerian Academy]], but the team itself are [[PrivateMilitaryContractors privately-run paramilitary mercenaries.]] Due to a massive ContinuityReboot that started with ''Star Fox 64'', the characters' backstories have all been changed from their original form, [[MultipleChoicePast making research into their origins rather difficult.]]

In the [[VideoGame/StarFox64 ''Star Fox 64'']] continuity, The team roster has featured the following changes:
** The original (unplayable) team, as told in the [[OpeningScroll backstory,]] was made up of James [=McCloud=], Peppy Hare, and then Pigma Dengar. They were hired to investigate a military disturbance on planet Venom. In an event of sabotage, [[TheMole Pigma]] betrayed the team, defecting to [[BigBad Andross,]] who was controlling Venom at the time. In the ensuing battle over Venom, James sacrificed himself with a diversion to ensure Peppy's survival, having reportedly last been seen in the vicinity of an artificial Black Hole.
** The team was re-formed and led by James's son Fox [=McCloud=], and featured Falco Lombardi, Peppy Hare, and Slippy Toad, with the express intent to [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge kill Andross.]]
** Falco left the team in ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco''; afterwards, Slippy temporarily traded his pilot's wings to devote the bulk of his time to Cornerian Weapons Research and Development, and Peppy retired from active flight duty to concentrate on an advisory position in mission planning.
** Falco rejoined at the end of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]''. Krystal also joined the team, providing unique foresight with her extrasensory perception. Tricky is proclaimed an honorary member for his invaluable assistance, but never leaves his planet to join the Great Fox, instead staying to uphold his royal responsibilities.
** Peppy replaced Pepper as general before ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', Slippy again focused on his mechanic work elsewhere, Falco left the team for similar reasons, and Krystal was kicked out due to Fox's concern over her safety. Depending on the route, Lucy Hare, Amanda, and even Peppy become de facto members of the team during ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', with Falco and Slippy always returning, Amanda formally joining in one of its endings, and Krystal either rejoining the team or not [[MultipleEndings depending on the ending]] (though the endings which she does outweigh those which she doesn't by at least one).
** In one possible future, the team is made up of Marcus (Fox and Krystal's son), Falco Lombardi, Peppy's granddaughter, and Slippy's son.
** ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' added the robot ROB 64 as the operator of the Great Fox, and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Zero]]'' added Direct-i as a small robot assisting the Gyrowing [[spoiler:and Roadmaster]].
----
* AcePilot: All of them, although Falco is often specifically referred to as this.
* BadassCrew: The greatest mercenary team in the galaxy. Each individual member is capable of defeating entire armies by themselves, and their equipment includes [[AirborneAircraftCarrier a carrier]], [[SpaceFighter space fighters]], [[FutureCopter Gunships]], [[TankGoodness tanks]], [[ChickenWalker walkers]], and [[WalkingArsenal a truly incredible array of handheld weapons.]]
* {{Badbutt}}: The way they appeared in [[Videogame/StarFox64 Star Fox 64]] as opposed to earlier games. [[{{Bowdlerise}} Especially in English,]] they are far more [[DenserAndWackier silly]] than their former portrayal, resulting in a lot of GoshDangItToHeck.
* BalancePowerSkillGimmick: Fox is JackOfAllStats, Slippy is MightyGlacier, Falco is FragileSpeedster. Peppy and Krystal are both gimmicks, and they're not active on the core team at the same time.
* BigDamnHeroes: The Star Fox's entrance in almost every game is this.
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble:
** The Optimist: Slippy
** The Realist: Peppy
** The Cynic: Falco
** The Conflicted: Fox is more level-headed than Slippy, but more hopeful than Peppy.
* PrivateMilitaryContractors: They work as commandos-for-hire, usually for the Corneria Army. They refuse to join the army because they like doing things their own way.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: At least some of the team is seen wearing the team's trademark neck scarf in assorted colors, except in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
* UnwantedAssistance: If Fox shoots a target that one of his teammates was after, said teammate will chew him out for {{Kill Steal}}ing.

Jim Walker (''Star Fox Assault'', ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'')

Fox Henry [=McCloud=] [[AdaptationNameChange Jr.]] is the main character of all of the ''Star Fox'' games and the leader of Star Fox.
----
* AcePilot: He is the leader of the Star Fox team thanks to his piloting skills and leadership spirit.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Fox ''[=McCloud=]'', inherited from his father, James [=McCloud=].
* ArtShift: Does Fox have [[UsefulNotes/GreenIsBlue blue or green]] eyes? [[AdaptationDyeJob That depends on what game you're looking at:]] in the older games and comics, his eyes are clearly blue. In ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 Star Fox 64]] [[BlackBeadEyes his eyes were solid black.]]'' Since ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Star Fox Adventures,]]'' his eyes have been green in every appearance.
* BattleCouple: [[ContinuityReboot Depending on the continuity.]] [[ComicStrip/StarFox Fara Phoenix]] flies with him in the original continuity, [[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Krystal]] flies with him in the reboot.
* BerserkButton:
** In the [[ComicStrip/StarFox Nintendo Power comic]], after Fox discovers that Andross was the sole reason he became an orphan (see ConvenientlyAnOrphan below), Fox is sent into a fit of UnstoppableRage and he single-handedly destroys Andross's flying ship base.
-->(Fox, Falco, and Peppy approach the core of Andross's ship)\\
'''Falco:''' Steady! Line it up! Almost there...!\\
'''Fox:''' Falco! I NEED TO DO ''THIS'' ONE '''MYSELF!'''\\
(Fox flies ahead of the rest of the team and attacks the core)\\
'''Peppy:''' ...Fox? He's boiling over!\\
'''Falco:''' I've never seen him so... twisted! I'm glad I'm not Andross!
** He also hated being called "[[EmbarrassingNickname Junior]]" in [[ComicStrip/StarFox the comic]].
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: His dad was [[NoOneShouldSurviveThat seemingly]] killed by Andross ([[NeverFoundTheBody most likely]]). And Andross (accidentally) killed his mother as well.
* CoolShades: In Expert mode in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' and in one of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'''s endings, featuring him with Krystal and their son, Marcus.
* CunningLikeAFox: He's not really "book smart," but Fox has been shown to be quite quick-witted.
* CutSceneIncompetence: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'', Fox is faced with the BigBad in a cutscence and takes ten shots at him with his [[KillItWithFire fire-blasting]] staff. He misses ''all ten'' shots. He even fails to hit the Mook that the BigBad attempted to use as a [[HumanShield Dino Shield]]. This coming from an AcePilot, and if dialogue is an indication, a crack shot with personal weapons as well. [[note]]Though to be fair to Fox, the staff is nothing like any weapon he's ever used before or been trained to use. The ranged attack capabilities aren't, anyways. The closest analogue is probably a rifle of some sort, and the staff's Fire Blast still probably handles completely differently. And Fox doesn't seem to have a problem with using the staff in melee, so he was probably pretty darn good at using a quarterstaff/staff/bo stick as a weapon well before coming to the planet.[[/note]] Also occurs repeatedly in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''; typically, Pigma's ship gets away because Fox has to do something else or is distracted. The script tends to forget the three ''other'' members of the team at such times.
* DeadpanSnarker: Seems to be a bit of his characterization in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
-->'''Fox:''' ''Peppy, send me a Landmaster will ya?''\\
'''Peppy:''' ''On its way. What's the situation?''\\
'''Fox:''' ''Well, I got my hands full. But what else is new.''\\
'''Peppy:''' ''Done! Here's your Landmaster!''\\
[=*=]Landmaster dramatically teleports in... in the middle of a swarm of aparoids*\\
'''Fox:''' ''Great''. Good to see the transmission system's targeting is as ''sterling'' as ever.
* ADogNamedDog: A Fox Named Fox
* DrowningMySorrows: One of ''Command'''s endings shows him doing this should Krystal leave him and choose to join Star Wolf.
* EmotionSuppression: Whenever he's fighting in his Arwing, [[HeroicSafeMode Fox is remarkably calm, even under the most extreme circumstances.]] This is especially apparent in ''VideoGame/StarFox64'', where Fox speaks purely for mission-critical reasons while everyone else is [[ComicalOverreacting reacting to the carnage in the most exaggerated fashion possible.]]
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Fox tries to keep his affection towards Krystal under wraps in ''Adventures'' and ''Assault''. Not that it makes any difference, since all of his teammates know him too well, ROB [[MySensorsIndicateYouWantToTapThat has a way of putting it out in the open]], and others (like Tricky) assumed they were already together.
* HappilyMarried: One of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'''s endings has him as this with Krystal.
%%* TheHero
* IAmXSonOfY: Before ''Star Fox 64'', when Fox's father was officially named James, Fox's father was dubbed Fox [=McCloud=] Sr. (or "Fox Senior") in supplemental material, and Fox himself was called "Junior" by General Pepper in the comic (although he renounces it).
* ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies: His reason for kicking Krystal off Star Fox prior to ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' was that, at the time, the two were in a relationship, and he didn't want to see her get hurt as a result of being part of TheTeam. She doesn't take it well. The game seems to relish in pointing out how [[IdiotBall phenomenally stupid]] this decision was on Fox's part -- practically all of his teammates [[WhatTheHellHero call him on it]] at various points in the storyline.
* JackOfAllStats: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', he's a generally middle-of-the-road character when it comes to stats.
* LegacyCharacter: His father James led the original Star Fox team, and one ending of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' has his son Marcus leading a new incarnation of it in the future.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Fox's father was as much of an AcePilot as Fox was. Hopefully for Fox, he won't end up being backstabbed by one of his supposed allies the same way.
* NiceGuy: Depending on the [[ContinuityReboot continuity.]] Before the reboot, Fox [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules didn't care much for money,]] preferring to [[JustLikeRobinHood liquidate his unneeded resources]] to [[WeHelpTheHelpless support the downtrodden.]] (This personality trait was shown in the [[ComicStrip/StarFox tie-in comic]] and on [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/foxcardfrontback.jpg his official trading card]]) He even avoided squeezing a rich man for money [[KeepTheReward when there was a clear opportunity to do so.]] However, since the reboot, he only [[NominalHero works for cash, or the survival of the Lylat system as a whole.]]
* NotAllowedToGrowOld: After Marcus was born, about the only difference physically was that he started wearing sunglasses and grew a goatee of sorts on his chin.
* OfficialCouple: Fox's canon girlfriend and the dynamics of their relationship with each other [[ContinuityReboot changed with the continuity.]]
** Originally, he was going strong with Fara Phoenix, the daughter of a rich spaceship magnate and chief test pilot of the prototype Arwing. Their mutual affections were on full display in [[ComicStrip/StarFox the comic.]] She goes on to become a member of Star Fox and helps defeat Andross after his return.
** Since the reboot, he has Krystal, [[LastOfHisKind the sole survivor of the doomed planet Cerinia,]] whom he met on Dinosaur Planet. She becomes a member of Star Fox and assists in defeating the [[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Aparoid Invasion.]] Fox breaks up with her at the beginning of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' because [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies Fox is worried for Krystal's safety]]. Depending on the ending, they either reunite, settle and have a child, or stay permanently broken up.
* ParentalAbandonment: Fox's parents, Fox Sr. and Vixy, are both gone. Vixy is dead, and James is a disembodied voice and occasional SpaceWhale. Since the reboot, Fox's father was [[AdaptationNameChange renamed]] James [=McCloud=], and his mother [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse isn't mentioned by anyone at all.]]
* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: He has to do this about every other game.
* RealMenWearPink: [[VideoGame/StarFox1 Originally]], Fox's pilot scarf was bright pink. It was changed to red in ''VideoGame/StarFox64''.
* RescueRomance: His relationships with ''both'' of his official love interests began by him saving their lives.
* TheRival: To Falco and Wolf. He used to butt heads with Falco quite a bit, but the tensions seemed to have died down in later games until they became close friends and merely friendly rivals. His true rival and WorthyOpponent is Wolf O'Donnell, while his [[{{Archenemy}} nemesis]] is Andross.
* SayMyName: In the Japanese versions, his team members will do this if Fox is killed (these are replaced with a BigNo in the English version).
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules:
** In stark contrast to Falco's [[OnlyInItForTheMoney greed]], Fox always practices the RobinHood credo, and is unconcerned with becoming rich. That is not to say Fox doesn't enjoy luxuries now and then.
-->'''Fox:''' First class tickets would be nice.\\
'''Falco:''' You could have asked for a moon!\\
'''Fox:''' Moons aren't nearly as comfortable.
** This was [[{{Retcon}} retconned]] with Star Fox 64 and all later games. In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'', he spends a lot of time complaining that he's not getting paid nearly enough for what he's doing. Post-reboot, [[NominalHero Fox definitely is in for the money.]]
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Once in ''Assault'', relating to Krystal. Played with in that she ''is'' his girlfriend, but the subject of marriage makes Fox clearly uncomfortable. Tricky assumes that Fox and Krystal are already engaged, and promises to keep Sauria intact until they can come back on their honeymoon. Fox unfortunately phrases his response in a way that makes it clear that although they aren't, he does want them to be, causing much embarrassment until he can change the subject.
-->'''Fox:''' What are you nuts?! We aren't- we not yet-\\
'''Tricky:''' Not yet?\\
[Krystal leans in curiously whilst Fox struggles over his words]\\
'''Fox:''' Uh... I mean- I mean, this is not a conversation for children!\\
[Krystal laughs at his immediate topic changing]\\
'''Tricky:''' You said you weren't gonna treat me like a kid anymore!\\
'''Fox:''' Then stop acting like one!\\
'''Tricky:''' You're just mad 'cause you don't wanna talk about it.\\
'''Krystal:''' Alright, that's enough, boys.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Probably the reason James is always shown wearing shades and Fox rarely is -- without them, father and son look nearly the same.
* TechnicolorEyes: Fox was shown having brown eyes in the title screen of the original ''[[VideoGame/StarFox1 Star Fox]]'', then blue eyes in the Itoh comic (though inconsistently green or blue in the first chapter), in ''VideoGame/StarFox2'', and in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee''. Since ''[[Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco Farewell]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'', Fox has had green eyes, which he's had ever since, except for one promotional ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' artwork where he appears to have ''both'' blue and green eyes (fading from one color to the other in the same iris, no less!). But since the green eyes became fixed, they have usually been some of the nicest hue of green imaginable. Green eyes of course exist in reality, but it's not often you see someone with such a penetrating emerald color.
* TriggerHappy: Some dialogue in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'' implies that he's like this (specifically General Pepper forbidding him from taking a blaster to his first Sauria mission and shooting everything in sight to solve his problems, requiring him to find a different, yet suitable weapon for the circumstances), but so far it's been an InformedAttribute.

!'''Falco Lombardi'''
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Falco_Lombardi_collage_6485.jpg]]
->'''Voices (Japanese):''' Creator/HisaoEgawa (most appearances)\\
Kosuke Takaguchi (''Star Fox 64 3D'', ''Star Fox Zero'')
->'''Voices (English):''' Bill Johns (''VideoGame/StarFox64'')\\
Ben Cullum (''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee'', ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'')\\
Mike Madeoy (''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'')\\
Dex Manley (''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'')\\
Mark Lund (''Star Fox 64 3D'', ''Star Fox Zero'')

Falco Lombardi is something of a loose cannon for the Star Fox team. He doesn't play well with others, and seems to mainly go along with the team for financial reasons, though deep down he realizes what is at stake and will do what is right. He used to butt heads with Fox, leading to a falling out before ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'', but by ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', he seems to have warmed up to him, and they are simply friendly rivals. Falco is the best pilot on the team or at least easily Fox's equal, with the best Arwing stats in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' and a specialized Sky Claw vehicle in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
----
* AcePilot: This is his official team designation. His stats even seem to imply that he's a more skilled pilot than Fox, though [[InformedAbility this doesn't come up during gameplay]]. Appropriately for a bird, he expressively prefers flying an Arwing, as opposed to any of the team's other options.
* AllThereInTheManual: The manga ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco'' explains his absence for most of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'' as being from a falling out between him and Fox due to the machinations of an officer who planned on resurrecting Andross.
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Averted; despite the name suggesting he's a falcon, [[http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/29183/star-fox-the-original-design/ he's actually based on a pheasant]], which do have such garish head colours.
* {{Badbutt}}: "Now it's our turn to kick some tail!"
* {{Bishonen}}: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'' and in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', but not so much in the SNES game or its comics, or in ''VideoGame/StarFox64'', ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco'', or ''VideoGame/StarFoxCommand''. It really [[ArtShift depends on the artist]].
* BrooklynRage: He's got the accent, an Italian-sounding last name, and he's even a former gang member.
* TheCavalry: He shows up out of nowhere in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'' to help with the final boss fight.
* CelibateHero: When asked by Katt in the manga ''Farewell, Beloved Falco'', he replies with a smug [[{{asexual|ity}} "I fly solo babe".]]
* BackForTheFinale: Comes back at the end of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]''.
* CharacterDevelopment: His relationship with Fox improves considerably after taking a four-year break from the team.
* ChekhovMIA: In ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', where his only appearance is the final battle with Andross.
* CoolOldGuy: In one of the endings of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', Falco serves this role, apparently playing mentor to [[spoiler:Fox's son Marcus, just as Peppy was Fox's mentor. And like Fox above, Falco wears awesome sunglasses.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Falco is never shy about presenting his feelings.
-->"See my ship? Does it ''look'' okay to you?"
* EleventhHourRanger: He aids Fox during the FinalBoss of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures''.
* FakeDefector: Averted in ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco'': he neither betrayed Star Fox nor even faked betrayal when he fought Fox, as it turns out that the "Androssian rebels" were Katt Monroe and her gang (not to mention ''his'' former gang), FREE AS A BIRD, and the only reason Star Fox fought against them was because they were manipulated by Captain Shears.
%%* FeatherFingers
* FragileSpeedster: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', his ship has the highest boost, but one of the lowest health ratings.
* GlassCannon: Across the games - including his appearances in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series - Falco typically has low health and/or defense, but higher accuracy, damage, and/or speed. Particularly notable in ''Assault'', where he has an Arwing piloting skill higher than everyone else, including Fox, but also has the lowest health.
* GreenEyes: Has blue eyes in most of the games, but in ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero'', his eyes are green.
* IWorkAlone: He's a bit of a loner, meaning he seems to leave the team every other game only to come back later.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite mocking some of his teammates constantly, he seems to genuinely care about their well-being. [[AllThereInTheManual According to the ''Assault'' instruction booklet]], rumor has it that he considers the team his family.
%%* TheLancer
* ALizardNamedLiz: It seems like he's a falcon named Falco. {{Subverted}}, as despite his name, and the fact that he quite clearly fancies himself a bird of prey (such as indignantly shouting "Hands off my prey!" whenever Fox shoots down a target he had in his sights), he's actually a pheasant.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Particularly in [[ComicStrip/StarFox the comic]], Falco seems ever-concerned with opportunities to get rich. This is particularly annoying to [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules Fox]]; while they both are in it for the money, and both have a set of standards they won't cross even for cash, Falco's standards are a bit looser than Fox's are.
* ShoutOut: He is supposedly named after Carlo Rambaldi, an Italian special effects artist who worked on the films ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'' and ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial''.
* TookALevelInKindness: It's subtle but compare his dialog and interactions in ''64'' to those in ''Assault''. It's clear that his time away from Star Fox over the course of ''Adventure'' left him more appreciative of them.
* ToothyBird: Not seen in the games, but has been seen in the comic, ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco''. [[AvertedTrope but not in the]] [[ComicStrip/StarFox Nintendo Power comics]] Whether Falco has teeth or not seems to [[DependingOnTheArtist depend on the artist]] more than comics vs. games.
%%* TroubledButCute
* {{Tsundere}}: Especially in the [[ComicStrip/StarFox original comic]]. Falco is deeply loving toward Fox, [[WithFriendsLikeThese even while beating the shit out of him.]]
* UngratefulBastard: "Gee, I've been saved by Fox. How swell."
* VocalEvolution: Japanese voice only: His voice is much deeper now than it was in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''. Interestingly, his original voice in [[VideoGame/StarFox1 Star Fox]] and [[VideoGame/StarFox2 Star Fox 2]] was very deep.

!'''Peppy Hare'''

Jaz Adams (''Star Fox 64 3D'', ''Star Fox Zero'')

Peppy Hare is a veteran of the original Star Fox team led by his former classmate James [=McCloud=], acting as a father figure to the current Star Fox team led by Fox [=McCloud=]. Since the end of [[VideoGame/StarFox1 the]] [[VideoGame/StarFox64 Lylat]] [[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Wars]], he rarely climbs into the cockpit of an Arwing, preferring instead to serve as the team's navigator and general advisor. By ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', he left the team to become a general in the Corneria Army.
----
* TenMinuteRetirement: It doesn't take much to convince him to take action until ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco'', when the 45-year old suddenly insists of being "too old" to pilot the Landmaster, and tells [[RecycledScript Slippy to do it]].
-->'''Slippy:''' Funny how you're suddenly so acutely aware of your age.
* BadassGrandpa: He's playable in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' and shows that he's still capable of flying an Arwing despite his age.
-->'''Peppy:''' Come to daddy!
%%* BewareTheNiceOnes
* BigBrotherMentor: Acted more like this to Fox in the [[ComicStrip/StarFox Nintendo Power comic]].
* TheCameo: In the free-to-play ''Steel Diver: Sub Wars'' 3DS game, he acts as a sponsor for buying the premium version of the game. He doesn't say his name, but it's him in an admiral outfit. It is also a ShoutOut to various 3DS games having add-ons being sponsored by rabbits (like in Street Pass Plaza).
* CoolOldGuy: Even if he can't pilot an Arwing in his advanced age, he still takes command of the Great Fox, acting as MissionControl.
* DoABarrelRoll: ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' is the TropeNamer, and it was one of Peppy's signature phrases.
* GenkiGirl: A [[GenderInvertedTrope rare male example,]] Peppy is described and depicted as the team's "mood-maker" in [[VideoGame/StarFox1 original game]], but in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' onwards that role went to Slippy.
* HappilyMarried: From what little is gathered of it, he used to be this with Vivian, before she died.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:In ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'', Peppy ends up sacrificing the Great Fox, and himself in the process, by ramming the iconic mother ship (which was gradually undergoing aparoidedation by the aparoids) into the shields of the aparoid homeworld's core in order to allow the rest of his team entry. Turns out, he survived by using the Great Fox's bridge as an escape pod.]]
* ItHasBeenAnHonor: He tells his teammates this during the penultimate level of ''Assault'' (which is also before he [[spoiler:ended up [[DisneyDeath nearly]] [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificing himself]] as well as sacrificing the Great Fox by kamikazing it into the shield generator]]).
-->'''Peppy:''' Fox, Krystal, Falco, Slippy... I'm proud to have fought alongside you.\\
'''Fox:''' Huh? What are you saying?\\
'''Peppy:''' Err... nothing, I'm just babbling, that's all.
* TheMentor: He acts as a mentor to Fox, and tries to keep the younger [=McCloud=] on the straight-and-narrow.
* ParentalSubstitute: Is this to Fox. Considering Fox was still a young teenager when James disappeared, Peppy had to raise and train Fox, to make sure he made it to adulthood.
* SoleSurvivor: He's the only member of the original Star Fox team who's known to still be alive, due to James' ambiguous fate, and Pigma being corrupted and possibly destroyed.
* SpeciesSurname: A hare whose last name is Hare.
* TeamDad: Generally a kinder, more egalitarian version of this. Fox is still the leader, after all. But [[BewareTheNiceOnes heaven help you]] if you're [[http://arwinglanding.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=3&pos=21 being a total idiot]], a notable example being the aftermath of Fox's dogfight with Falco.
* YouRemindMeOfX: Fox reminds him of James. Saving Peppy in ''64'' results in him saying "Your father helped me like that, too!"

Mike [=McAuliffe=] (''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'', ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'')\\

Slippy Toad is a close friend of Fox [=McCloud=] since their school days, and a talented mechanical engineer. His enthusiasm tends to outweigh his technical flight skills, so he is the one most likely to get into trouble. Still, he is considered the likeable, morale-boosting "mascot" of the team.
----
* ADayInTheLimelight: ''Star Fox Guard'' features him and his uncle Grippy.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In one plotline in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', Slippy ended up brainwashed by Octoman into fighting against Fox and Amanda.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Some of his lines in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' paint him this way, especially when he looks at the menacing aparoid base and remarks about how tasty it looks (as well as angrily ask if the aparoids have ever heard of windows in one conversation).
* CrossdressingVoices:
** In all of the Japanese versions of the games, and in the English version of ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'', which lead to Western fans infamously mistaking him for a girl. He's voiced by a man in all of the other English versions (though it went back to a female in ''Zero'' and ''Guard''), although Peppy's line at the ending of the Titania level establishes that Slippy is indeed male [''"I'm sure he's [Slippy] learned his lesson."'']).
** In the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 original game]], Slippy has the second ''lowest'' voice of all the main characters -- an unmistakable [[SpeakingSimlish Simlish]] baritone, with only Falco's bass voice being lower in pitch.
* DistressedDude: Slippy has been kidnapped no less than ''four times'' in official works:
** First in the AlternateContinuity [[ComicStrip/StarFox original comic]], he was kidnapped by a [[LizardFolk lizardman]] mechanic in a hangar on Titania, and taken to Andross's base on Fortuna. But he was eventually able to free himself then with the help of his [[UtilityBelt Utility Necklace]]).
** In ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'', after being shot down towards [[RecycledScript Titania]] and then nearly in the jaws of Goras. He needs to be rescued by Fox.
** Then in ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco'', Slippy is piloting the Landmaster on Titania, and recalls how he was previously kidnapped [[TemptingFate in the same situation]]. Then he's kidnapped ''[[RecycledScript again]]'', this time by the Goras and Captain Shears, and Fox has to rescue him ''[[RecycledScript again]]''.
** One path of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' had him possessed by the enemy, and Fox also had to free him then.
* EnemyScan: Slippy does this for you in most games against bosses, allowing you to see the enemy's shields/HitPoints.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'', seconds after gameplay begins, he goes off on his own and a fighter begins chasing him.
* GadgeteerGenius: It runs in the family, considering his father's knack for inventions. The two worked together on the Blue-Marine [[AllThereInTheManual according to the guide for]] ''[[AllThereInTheManual 64]]''.
* GoOutWithASmile: ...sort of. If you kill Slippy in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'''s Multiplayer mode, he dies face-up, still smiling a dumb, open-mouthed smile. It's pretty hilarious.
* GratuitousEnglish: In the Japanese versions of ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', saving Slippy during the flight missions usually results him in saying "Thank you, Fox!" in English.
* HiddenDepths: ''Assault'' reveals in multiplayer that while he's not a particularly skilled flyer, he's a force to be reckoned with as a Landmaster tank driver. This gets reflected in ''Command'', and earlier in [[VideoGame/StarFox2 Star Fox 2]], where his personal ship is essentially [[MightyGlacier a flying tank.]]
%%* InnocentBlueEyes

* LeeroyJenkins: Has a tendency to fly off on his own during missions, which gets him into big trouble in Sector X.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Though the similarities between father and son are applied somewhat differently. His father Beltino is a geeky, stuttering, absent-minded inventor of ships and weaponry ([[NonActionGuy though no indication is given he's the type who's been in a fight]]), whereas Slippy is a geeky, [[DependingOnTheWriter mostly]] non-stuttering, occasionally absent-minded inventor ''and'' operator of ships and weaponry.
* ManChild: He's the same age as Fox, but he has a high-pitched voice, gets into trouble constantly, and has little adaptive talent. He could pass for a 7-year old.
* MightyGlacier: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', his ship, the Bullfrog, gets plasma shots, but it has a tiny boost meter and isn't very mobile.

%%* TheSmartGuy
* SpeciesSurname: Though he looks more like a frog than a toad.
* UtilityBelt: In the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 original game]] and its [[VideoGame/StarFox2 unproduced sequel]], Slippy wore bead necklace. This necklace actually had a practical use in the [[ComicStrip/StarFox comic]], where its pieces doubled as [[InstantSedation sleeping gas]] [[MadeOfExplodium explosives]].

* DivergentCharacterEvolution: No longer just Fox wearing Sunglasses, now he's Fox wearing sunglasses ''and'' a yellow scarf! Interestingly, the shade of his fur has also changed. Previously in ''64'', he had a darker shade of fur than Fox, whereas his appearance in ''Command'' shows him with a lighter shade of fur.
* HeroicSacrifice: According to the intro to ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Zero]]'', he sacrificed himself so that Peppy could escape. [[spoiler:He sacrifices himself ''again'' so Fox can escape Andross.]]

[[quoteright:80:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/VixyReinardMcCloud_7224.jpg]]

Fox's mother from [[ComicStrip/StarFox the comic]], who was killed in a car bomb when Fox was little. Her killer was Andross, who had fallen in love with Vixy and intended to kill her lover, but Vixy was killed by mistake.
----
* AnimalThemeNaming: Her first name "Vixy" alludes to "vixen", which is a term for a female fox. Also SpeciesSurname, see below.
* CanonDiscontinuity: Vixy has made no appearance, nor received any mention any of the games. That said, however, Fox ''is'' an orphan, meaning he obviously had a mother at some point whom perished so he could be left to be raised primarily by his father, and her character is one that can very easily fit in continuity, with no real changes to her character backstory across either one.
%%* DeathByOriginStory
* HartmanHips: Given Fara's supposed to be a near dead-on match to Vixy in terms of her physical appearance, Vixy almost definitely fit this trope when she was alive.
%%* MissingMom
* MurderByMistake: Andross planted a car bomb intended for Fox's father. Unfortunately, Vixy used his car to get to work on that day, and she was killed when it was automatically set off.
%%* PosthumousCharacter
* PunnyName: Vixy's name comes from "Vixen", which is a term for a female fox. Her last name comes from the "Reynard Cycle", a medieval French book about the adventures of a clever fox named Reynard (fr: Renart). The book was so popular in the MiddleAges that it gave its name to the animal ("Renard" is French for fox). In-universe, going with the concurring theme of being named after one's species, it may provide a reason for why Fox received ''his'' name.
* SpeciesSurname: Her last name "Reinard" is close to "renard", the French word for fox.

[[folder:Star Wolf]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Star_Wolf_team_collage_9313.jpg]]

A team of rival mercenaries and {{Worthy Opponent}}s to Star Fox that appear in most of the franchise. They sided with Andross's army during the Lylat Wars (namely ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' and ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero''). Despite their differences, [[EnemyMine they teamed-up with Star Fox later on]] to defeat the [[AssimilationPlot Aparoid Invasion,]] explicitly because [[EvilVersusOblivion the Aparoids were a greater threat.]]

They were first going to appear in ''VideoGame/StarFox2'', the [[VaporWare unreleased]] sequel to ''VideoGame/StarFox1''. The first time they officially appeared was ''VideoGame/StarFox64''.

The team roster:
* Led by Wolf O'Donnell, the original team included Leon Powalski, Pigma Dengar, and Andrew Oikonny. This team also featured in ''VideoGame/StarFox2'', but with Algy instead of Andrew (though renamed Andrew in the FanTranslation).
* Sometime after the Lylat Wars, Pigma was expelled because of his greed. Andrew was also kicked out for his arrogance, which led to him partially restoring the remainder of his uncle's army and starting the events of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''. Panther Caroso was taken on at an unknown point prior to the attack of Oikonny's army.
* Krystal joined just before ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' after being asked to leave Star Fox. [[MultipleEndings Depending on the ending]], she will either leave the group and return to Star Fox, stay with Star Wolf, or leave everyone altogether and become an independent bounty hunter.
----
* AcePilot: All of them, except maybe Andrew who is stated as being the least experienced pilot on the team.
* AntiHero: They are [[PriceOnTheirHead criminals with bounties on their heads,]] but when the entire Lylat System is threatened, [[EvilVersusOblivion they will put their lives on the line to save it.]] They help Star Fox fight the Aparoid Invasion in ''Videogame/StarFoxAssault'', and they oppose the Anglars in ''Videogame/StarFoxCommand''.
* {{Badbutt}}: Much like the Star Fox team, the [[{{Bowdlerise}} English voice actors]] portrayed them in a very [[DenserAndWackier silly]] fashion in ''[[Videogame/StarFox64 Star Fox 64]]'' as opposed to their original characterizations.
--> Wolf: [[GoshDangItToHeck "What the heck!?"]]
* BossSubtitles: In ''Star Fox 64 3D'', their appearances are accompanied by "Ultra-Performance All-Range Fighter" and the name of their current ships (Wolfen and Wolfen II).
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In their first appearance, they were depicted as complete [[PsychoForHire psychos for hire]], especially Leon and Pigma. In later games, Pigma's been kicked off the team for being too evil and greedy, Andrew Oikonny, who still ended up being portrayed as evil, left the team around the same time Pigma was kicked off, and the more sociopathic attributes of the team have become more subdued. They become more like {{Anti Hero}}es and the {{Worthy Opponent}}s of Star Fox.
* EvilCounterPart: Each Star Fox character has a match up in Star Wolf.
** Wolf and Fox are both TheLeader of their respective teams and consider each other eternal rivals. They both share their first name with the team's name as well.
** Leon and Falco are NumberTwo on the roster, and consider each other rivals in every battle.
** Pigma and Peppy were both members of the original Star Fox. They're both the eldest of the respective teams and have history together.
** Andrew and Slippy are more PairTheSpares, but they're both the least skilled pilots of their team.
** Panther to Krystal as exotic sensual newcomers. In contrast to the other pairs, instead of being just archrivals, Panther tries to flirt with Krystal. Mostly one-sided in ''Assault'', but in some paths Krystal appears to reciprocate in ''Command''.
* FormerRegimePersonnel: They become this after the Lylat Wars, living in a hidden SpaceStation along with [[TheRemnant what's left of Venom's military force.]]
* HateSink: In games where they are exclusively enemies, they seem designed to be this. Apart from being legitimately difficult encounters much of the time, they taunt you and your squad mates with patronizing dialogue, and often appear to disrupt you during time-critical missions (such as Fortuna/Fichina in ''Star Fox 64'' and Sector Beta in ''Star Fox Zero''), where losing to them will only make it [[ItsPersonal more personal]] when you encounter them again later.
* HiredGuns: They were hired and supplied by Andross to supplement his military forces with an [[LensmanArmsRace effective counter to the Arwing,]] and later, to take out team Star Fox.
* JokerImmunity: In most cases, neither Wolf nor his wingmates will die if they are shot down in a dogfight. However, due to the DarkerAndEdgier nature of the series before the reboot, [[Videogame/StarFox2 Star Fox 2,]] [[AvertedTrope averts this trope]] for everyone [[SoleSurvivor except Wolf himself.]]
* MirrorBoss: In most of the games featuring them, they have the distinction of being the only boss characters who attack in ships around the same size as the Arwings. In ''Star Fox Zero'', the Wolfen can even transform into Hunters in certain encounters, which are wolf-like mecha serving as counterparts to the Arwing's bird-like Walker.
* ThePsychoRangers: In ''Star Fox 2'', ''Star Fox 64'' and ''Star Fox Zero''. Star Wolf moved away from this in ''Star Fox Assault''.
* SmugSnake: Their dialogue in ''Star Fox 2'', ''Star Fox 64'', and ''Star Fox Zero'' evokes this a lot.
* UnexplainedRecovery: How the team repeatedly survives being shot down is still unexplained.
* WorthyOpponent: They are this to Star Fox.

Grant Goodeve (''Star Fox Assault'')\\
Jay Ward (''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'')\\
Jaz Adams (''Star Fox 64 3D'')\\
Ja Green (''Star Fox Zero'')

Wolf O'Donnell is the leader of the Star Wolf team and perennial rival to Fox. He and Fox first fought during ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' (technically ''VideoGame/StarFox2'' had it been released) when Andross hired Star Wolf to take down Star Fox. Since their first encounter, however, Wolf gained a grudging respect for Fox and came to his aid several times -- though it's stated that Wolf only helps Fox so he can [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou ensure he will one day take him down by himself.]]
----
* AcePilot: While this trope applies to his teammates as well, Wolf is the best pilot of his team. This claim is substantiated by the fact that he has the highest flight ability in ''Assault'', and that the bounty against him in ''Command'' is the highest for any member of Star Wolf.
* AgitatedItemStomping: If he loses a Versus Mode match in ''Assault'', he'll angrily throw his blaster onto the ground, grind it with his foot, and smugly look the other way.
* AloofAlly: Whenever he's forced to [[EnemyMine actually work with Fox.]] He will save Fox from harm, but explicitly only [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou because he wants to kill Fox himself.]] When forced by circumstances beyond his control, he will give Fox advice and support, but only very grudgingly. Leon and Panther inform Fox that Wolf considers him a WorthyOpponent.
-->'''Fox:''' I owe you my life on that one, Wolf. Thanks.
-->'''Wolf:''' I thought I told you. I didn't come here to save you.
-->'''Fox:''' Even so...
-->'''Wolf:''' Mm.
* {{Badass}}: In addition to changing his appearance back to his original look, ''Assault'' made him gruffer. In that game (and later in ''Brawl''), he acts like he's the "big, bad tough guy" -- something which is even pointed out by Falco during the final mission.
-->'''Falco:''' "Look at that guy. He really thinks he's the man."
* BayonetYa: A feature on his blaster in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]'' that makes it stand out from Fox's and Falco's is the large claw-like [[http://www.smashbros.com/wii/en_us/characters/images/hidden12/hidden12_080331f-l.jpg bayonet]] which will add damage to fighters at close range.
* BritishAccents: Wolf's English dubbing in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' has some British accent in it. His dubbing in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' has a more gruff American accent. The British accent returns in ''Star Fox 64 3D'', sounding even more posh than the original, but was changed to a gruff American in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Zero]]''.
* CarpetOfVirility: He has white chest fur in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]''.
* {{Catchphrase}}: ''Curses!'' could count in ''Assault'', though he mostly says it in Mission 7. He even says the word if you fail the mission, which causes his Wolfen to explode.
--->'''Wolf:''' "Curses!!!"
* ClearMyName: His motive for defeating the Anglars in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' is so that he can get a rather sizeable bounty off of his head.
%%* ClothingReflectsPersonality
* CostumePorn: In ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]''.
* ADogNamedDog: A Wolf Named Wolf. This is even lampshaded in ''Brawl'' when [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Snake]] rings up Colonel Campbell for info on him.
* EnemyMine: He and Fox have teamed up on several occasions to fight a greater threat.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He kicked perennial money-grubber/backstabber Pigma out of his team.
* EvilBrit: His original English voice accent in ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' was this. In later games, he sounds far more gruff, deep, and American, as well as becoming less of a villain.
* EvilVersusOblivion: He justifies helping Star Fox going up against Pigma and the aparoids with this line of logic. Wolf may not be a good guy, but he's not out to conquer, enslave, or destroy anything.

* MookPromotion: According to Wolf's ''Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U'' trophy, he apparently fought in Andross's army as a soldier before the latter's exile, but this may be due to reckless wording.

* TheRival: To Fox [=McCloud=]. The [[AllThereInTheManual manual]] of ''Assault'' states that each of them considers the other to be his "eternal rival."

Wolf even states that his dogfights against James [=McCloud=] were the most fun he had in his life.

He appears to get an age bump in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Zero]]'' (where a throwaway line states that he's fought with James in the past). His dialogue in ''VideoGame/StarFox2'' suggested that he was originally much older.

Leon Powalski is the insane and unpredictable assassin and member of Star Wolf. In his first appearance in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' (and ''[[VideoGame/StarFox2 2]]''), his personality was much different from the AxCrazy persona he seems to have developed after ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', although there were still hints of it ("I think I'll torture you for a while"). [[SanitySlippage However, by ''Assault' he's a complete psycopath.]] He plays TheRival to Falco.
----
* AxCrazy: WordOfGod has it that he's a cold-blooded killer with no conscience.
-->"A member of Star Wolf who's a cold-blooded assassin. He has no morals or conscience and will perform any job with machinelike disinterest." - instruction booklet, p. 39, Star Fox: Assault.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Implied to be the only reason the Star Wolf team puts up with him, because he's really good at killing things.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Some of his dialogue in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' reveals a penchant for flowers and rainbows, and the other characters don't tend to think that he's aware of what is going on all the time.
* ColdSniper: Leon, in a pilot-assassin (or so they say) variety. He supposedly plays as one... Or is it?
* CombatSadomasochist: Heavily implied. He has a disturbing tendency to [[InLoveWithYourCarnage conflate violence and attraction,]] and loves torturing opponents before killing them.
* DepravedHomosexual: Revealed to be one in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vg7Ex-IXWgU this conversation with Panther.]] Thanks to his [[CombatSadomasochist depraved sense of pleasure,]] Leon takes a ''[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything very]]'' [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything intense]] interest in Wolf's anatomy. More specifically, [[InLoveWithYourCarnage how it can be used to messily kill people.]]
* TheDragon: Leon is Wolf's Dragon in the same way Falco is Fox's Lancer (the two are also opponents in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''). His ''Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U'' trophy describes him as Wolf's most trusted ally.
* InformedAttribute: We've never seen him kill anyone, even though he's allegedly a cold-blooded killer with no conscience. Some of this may be because of the game's target audience. His dialogue does show him to be depraved.
-->"I think I'll torture you a bit before I cook you!"
* InLoveWithYourCarnage:
** How he ''[[HomoeroticSubtext feels]]'' towards Wolf.
-->'''Panther:''' Set me straight on this, Leon; are you jealous of the shred-er, or the shred-ee?
** Also, the name of his customized Wolfen in ''Command'' is the Rainbow Delta. This could be a reference to chameleons changing colors, or...
* LizardFolk: Like his name implies, he's an anthromorphic chameleon.
* PsychoForHire: He is [[AxCrazy absolutely insane,]] and works for the Star Wolf mercenary team.
* {{Sadist}}: Leon absolutely loves violence and psychological torture. In ''Star Fox Assault,'' he expresses a dislike of the Aparoids, simply because it's "No fun fighting unshakable enemies."
* SanitySlippage: While he was relatively calm and collected in ''64'', he became more manic and depraved in each passing game.
* ShoutOut: His name is a reference to Leon '''K'''owalski from the movie ''Film/BladeRunner''.
* SoftSpokenSadist: Both Japanese and English vocals wise, he was this in ''64'', at least.
* StoneWall: His ship has tremendous health and defense, but no primary lasers.
* ThisCannotBe: Yells "This can't be happening!" if defeated on Fortuna or Bolse.
* VocalEvolution: His Japanese voice was low and fluid-sounding in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''; over time it has become higher-pitched, accented, and maniacal. The English versions of the games followed suit on this. In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Zero]]'', his voice is closer to how it was in ''64'', which may be due to the ContinuityReboot.
* WeCanRebuildHim: According to one of the comics in the Keibunsha strategy guide, Leon was a cyborg on Venom 2.
* WickedCultured: His mannerisms in the Japanese version were intended to reflect that he is "creepily sophisticated."

Lev Liberman (''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'')\\


Pigma Dengar is a miserly hog who was a member of the original Star Fox team, but betrayed James to Andross and later joined Star Wolf. His overwhelming greed and unreliability got him kicked out of Star Wolf sometime before ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''. He tried to profit off of the aparoid invasion by stealing the Core Memory of a dead aparoid, but it corrupted him, and he became assimilated into the hive mind. He later returns in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', having survived by keeping his consciousness in a giant cube.
----
* AcePilot: According to himself in ''Zero''.
-->'''Pigma''': You should be terrified right now. I'm Star Wolf's ace pilot!
* ArcVillain: In ''Assault''. Mission 2 is started by a distress signal from him, and Missions 3, 4, and 5 are about hunting him down. While the Aparoids remain the main threat, Pigma takes the limelight before [[spoiler:the Aparoids assimilate him]].
* BigBad: Of ''Star Fox Guard''.
%%* BlackEyesOfCrazy
* BodyHorror: This is generally expected to happen with anything infected by the aparoids, but Pigma is by far the most advanced case of the Lylatians that had been infected.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: As the ''Assault'' instruction manual puts it, his life has been one double cross after another.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: In ''Star Fox Guard'', [[spoiler: he's the head of the [=AstroMine=] Corporation, a rival company to Corneria Precious Metals that's been sending the various robots to sabotage CPM's mining bases. Pigma mentions that he's using the metals he harvests and steals from Grippy Toad as material for Andross's army. He's also not above sending Venomian army forces to directly attack CPM's corporate office while they're trying to protect their offworld mining stockpile.]]
* EverythingIsMessierWithPigs: Just look at the guy!
* EvilFormerFriend: To James and Peppy. Given how close Star Fox team members are generally implied to be, it's entirely possible he was very familiar amongst their families as well, which would have included Fox. And then he ended up becoming greedy enough to willingly lure his friends and teammates into a death trap because he wasn't quite satisfied with the money he was receiving, and Andross paid him better. This is partially softened, however, in ''Star Fox Zero'', where it's stated he had to explicitly volunteer to investigate Venom with them, although he still appears to have built a reputation with them beforehand.
* EvilIsNotAToy: In ''Assault'', he take control of the Aparoids on Fichina. [[spoiler:Soon after, they take control of him]].
* FaceHeelTurn: In the BackStory.
* FatBastard: He really let himself go by ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''. Then again, his species isn't known for being picky eaters.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Being assimilated in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', being destroyed, and yet not dying.
* GadgeteerGenius: According to the Wolfen's ''Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS'' trophy, Pigma worked with Andross for the ship's creation.
* {{Gonk}}: Even by anthro standards. And there are plenty of good-looking porcine anthros.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Pigma seems to have three symmetrical scars on his forehead during ''Assault''. Given how by this time he was forcefully kicked out of Star Wolf and chased off, and that the leader of said team is not afraid of using his claws in a fight, it's a safe assumption of just where he received them.
* {{Greed}}: His most defining trait, and what made him betray Star Fox and eventually get kicked out of Star Wolf after even they had problems with it. By the time of the ambiguously canon ''VideoGame/StarFoxCommand'', however, he devolved to having {{Revenge}} as having a defining trait of his.
* {{Jerkass}}: For starters, he turned on Fox's father and got him killed, and loves reminding Fox of this.
%%* KansaiRegionalDialect
* KickTheDog:
** His response to Fox telling him not to steal the Core Memory.
-->'''Pigma:''' Hmm... is it that important? Waa haa haa! Then I'm gonna be rich! Smell ya later!
** Also, in the Bolse mission in ''VideoGame/StarFox64'':
-->'''Pigma:''' Daddy screamed REAL good before he ''died!''
* KilledOffForReal: In ''Assault'', [[spoiler:he is assimilated by the aparoids and is almost certainly destroyed by Fox.]] He does return in two ending missions of ''Command'', where he's definitely destroyed.
* LargeHam: No {{Pun}} intended. He shines in ''64'' as the hammiest character, and that's saying a ''lot''.
* LaughingMad: By the time of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'', he seems to have lost a lot of his sanity, as about half of his speakable appearances is him laughing, and it is eventually topped when [[spoiler:he suffers aparoidedation.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: According to the Keibunsha strategy guide, he manipulated Wolf to act in accordance to Andross's orders.
* TheMole: According to the intro to ''Zero'', he was not a longtime member of Star Fox; he had only just joined by volunteering for the assignment to investigate Venom, and was a double agent all along.
* MonochromaticEyes: Except his unused ''VideoGame/StarFox2'' design.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: His aparoid form in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
* MythologyGag: Pigma working for Andross might be a nod to the early Nintendo Power comics, where Andross was a pig aficionado who was raised by robot pigs and had a robot pig sidekick called Herbert.
%%* PigMan:
* PragmaticVillainy: Although he intended to use the Core Memory to make himself rich, he certainly did not intend to work with the aparoids, since obviously obeying them would have meant turning down a profit.
* PsychoForHire: It is implied in the Bolse level that, aside from the obvious one of wanting to get rich with money, another reason why he betrayed Star Fox and presumably why he even takes various jobs is because he truly enjoys hurting people.
-->'''Pigma Dengar:''' Daddy screamed REAL good before he died!
* PunnyName: He is named for the common sentence ender "dengā" in the KansaiRegionalAccent, with Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto, the producer of the series, being from Kansai himself (specifically, Kyoto, not unlike his employer). The English spelling "Dengar" rhymes with this in non-rhotic accents.
* PuzzleBoss: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
* RegretfulTraitor: Not to Star Fox, but to Star Wolf. According to ''Command'', he considered the team to be his true friends. It's unknown if he legitimately believes this or if he's merely misremembering his nostalgia, though.
* ShoutOut: His last name is a reference to one of the bounty hunters in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack.''
* SycophanticServant: His bio in the Keibunsha guide describe Pigma as worshiping Andross as the emperor.
* ThisCannotBe: Yells "This can't be happening!" if defeated on Venom.
* UnexplainedRecovery: His appearance in ''Command''. Unlike Andrew, who has at least some leeway for his reappearance, Pigma ''himself'' appeared to explode during ''Assault'' (though the camera cuts away from this). He also seems to have a body that is still based on the one he got while under aparoid possession, yet the aparoids were completely, utterly wiped out at the climax of ''Assault'', meaning that even if he did survive his body imploding on itself, he more than likely would have been killed regardless unless he hadn't been completely assimilated. Then again, there's ''Command'''s [[CanonDiscontinuity deemed status]] in the series, though technically that only applies to the multiple endings.

!'''Andrew Oikonny'''

->'''Voices (English):''' Bill Johns (''Star Fox 64'')\\
John Hugill (''Star Fox Assault'')\\
Mike West(''Star Fox 64 3D'', ''Star Fox Zero'')

The original fourth member of Star Wolf in ''VideoGame/StarFox2'' was a primate named Algy (possibly meant to be "Algae"); in ''VideoGame/StarFox64'', this character concept was heavily redesigned as Andrew Oikonny (the FanTranslation of ''2'', however, renamed Algy "Andrew"). Andrew is Andross's nephew, and plays TheRival to Slippy. After ''64'', he was also forced out of Star Wolf, so he attempted to revive his uncle's empire in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''. He appears again in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', but as a subordinate of the Anglars.
----
%%* BadassArmFold: His ''Assault'' artwork.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''. Considering that he's ''the very first boss of the game'' and they had yet to go on foot (a rather heavily advertised aspect of the game), players were... unlikely to fall for the ruse.
* GiantEnemyCrab: His contraption in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' is a mechanical "Death Crab".
* GiantHandsOfDoom: Part of his ship in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', in a rather obvious mimicry of his uncle.
* HarmlessVillain: He's the one Star Wolf member who is taken the ''least'' seriously. Even when he breaks off from Star Wolf and forms his own army at the beginning of ''Assault'', he's still seen as little more than an annoyance and "Andross-wannabe" by the team.
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: By the time of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'', Andrew Oikonny is only referred to by his family name, Oikonny. In fact, he gives his full name only once, which is literally the last words he got to say shortly before his mech is literally shot in the head by an aparoid attack.
* IWantMyMommy: His parodied "Uncle Andross!", which he says when he's downed on Fichina or Bolse in ''64'', and when he's shot down by the first stage's aparoid boss in ''Assault'', as well as his first fight in ''Zero''.
* LastNameBasis: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
%%* ManiacMonkeys
* OverlordJr: Andross's nephew, and the heir to his empire.
* PunnyName: Andrew is derived from the Greek word Andreas ("of a man").
* StarterVillain: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: His bio in the Keibunsha strategy guide says he is hated by the other Star Wolf members.
* TransformingMecha: His flagship in ''Assault'' transforms into a mechanical Andross-inspired form.
* UncertainDoom: In the middle of his fight with Fox in ''Assault'', his Andross mech is shot down by an aparoid moth and he's never seen again. This is uncertain only because he survived being shot down twice before. This is not taking ''Command'' into account, of course.
* WellDoneSonGuy: He seems to be trying to simultaneously gain his uncle's favor and hide behind his infamy in some form.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: He's got white (well, grey, but close enough) fur, and Fox refers to him as a "blackhearted ape" in ''Assault''.
* TheWorfEffect: After being set up as a galactic revolutionary leader with a huge army to succeed Andross's empire, he is shot down mid-sentence by the ''real'' BigBad of the game, an aparoid.

!'''Panther Caroso'''

->'''Voices:''' Creator/TetsuInada (Japanese, all games), David Scully (English, ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault''), Dex Manley (English, ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'')

The newest member of the Star Wolf team, who debuted in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''. Panther Caroso is an unabashed ladies man who constantly tries to hit on Krystal every chance he gets. He always carries his signature rose. Prior to joining Star Wolf, he was a criminal who the Cornerian authorities had been tracking for decades.
----
* AffablyEvil: Despite being a member of Star Wolf, he's actually a pretty nice guy and has nothing personal against the Star Fox team.
%%* {{Bishonen}}
* TheCasanova: Described as a ladies man [[WordOfGod by Nintendo themselves]] and had apparently fallen in love with Krystal before he had even met her ("words do you no justice"). Possibly crosses over into CasanovaWannabe, at least where Krystal is concerned, as for the majority of his time throughout ''Assault'', he tries, mostly in vain, to win her over with his words and the same thing happens in ''Brawl''. Krystal generally tries to ignore him, merely [[SarcasmMode humours him]], or outright rejects him. His level of success does seem to have improved by ''Command'', but not only is the [[CanonDiscontinuity game's canonical events up for debate]], but it's implied that the only real reason Krystal joined up with Star Wolf was to [[OperationJealousy get back]] [[WomanScorned at Fox]] for kicking her off of Star Fox, rather than her falling for his charms legitimately. Notably, though, the Japanese dub in general portrayed her as more sincere and flattered by Panther's comments towards her.
* ChestInsignia: Panther wears armor that represents his symbol, the rose.
* ChivalrousPervert: Sure, he is a ladies' man, but he is quite dedicated to the person he cares about and loves them.
%%* TheDandy
%%* FriendlyEnemy
* FunPersonified: Let's just say he wants a first class meal after seeing his favorite restaurant got blown up.
* GlassCannon: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', his ship has the most powerful laser in the game, but ludicrously low health. Note that Panther still has a large amount of Turbo, meaning that he can just barrel-roll a lot for safety. He still has low health.
* HellishPupils: He's a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin panther]]!
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: ''Kinda''. In the default path of ''VideoGame/StarFoxCommand'', Panther lets Krystal go back to Star Fox because he knows that's where she is happy, but at the same time believes that one day she'll return to him. Why anyone who supposedly genuinely wishes happiness would then essentially say "See ya when you get bored of that guy and realize what you've been missing" is anyone's guess. It's played with, since Krystal ''does'' go back to Panther in the default ending. Though given his parting to words to her, chances are there was some level of guilt-tripping involved, combined with Krystal not fully trusting/forgiving Fox in that story path.

-> '''Voices (English):''' Rick May (''VideoGame/StarFox64''), Duncan Botwood (''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures''), David Frederick White (''Star Fox 64 3D'', ''Star Fox Zero'')
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Andross_collage_2254.jpg]]

The main enemy of Star Fox. Andross was once a brilliant Cornerian scientist who researched biotechnology after developing a powerful hyperspatial engine. However, his experiments grew increasingly radical to the point that his secret weapon wreaked havoc in the capital. The Corneria Defense Force was ultimately able to contain the disaster at a severe cost. He was arrested and exiled to Venom by General Pepper, but suddenly resurged with a Venomian empire five years later, initiating [[VideoGame/StarFox1 the]] [[VideoGame/StarFox64 Lylat]] [[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Wars]].
----
* ActuallyADoombot: In ''64'', the Andross you fight if you get to Venom from Bolse is a fake.
* BackFromTheDead: ''Thrice!'' The first time via a cloning technique. Secondly by [[spoiler:attempting to become a PhysicalGod (with draining Krystal's life-force apparently as a backup plan). Thirdly, his ''ghost'' (possibly a hologram) appears in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'']]. Whew!
%%* BadassBeard
* BadassBookworm: He was a scientist before he became the BigBad.
* BadassGrandpa: Considering the white hair that makes up his aforementioned beard as well as the fact that he is literally a grandpa, he's clearly older than most of his enemies.
* BigBad: Of the "Lylat Wars" (the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 original game]], ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Zero]]'') [[spoiler:as well as ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]''. He also pulls a ''posthumous'' [[TheManBehindTheMan Man Behind the Man]] in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.]]
* BodyHorror: By the time Fox faces him, Andross has long since left his original body behind being no more than a giant floating head. In the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 original game]], he appeared to be an electronic "Core Brain" cube residing in a human face composed of metallic tiles; in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'', he was more organic-looking and had separately detached hands. In the latter, blowing off his skin leaves his brain and eyeballs (attached together via neural stems) still active. In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Zero]]'', he also appears to be organic, but then the illusion is lifted when Fox enters his crystal and he's robotic similar to his SNES incarnation. [[spoiler:And when he's resurrected in ''Adventures'', at least ''half'' of him isn't his own body, he's attached to the rear of a Krazoa statue's head.]]
* BossSubtitles: "Evil Mad Scientist" in ''Star Fox 64 3D'', and "Scientific Genius" in ''Star Fox Zero''.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: In reference to [[MurderTheHypotenuse his accidental murder of Vixy]]:
-->'''Andross:''' I was young, in love, and had a spare car bomb.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Going by the fact that there were references to Andross creating both the Anglar race (according to the Farewell Fox storyline) and the means to defeat them (the whole removing poison from the sea thing), it's hard not to suspect that Andross was probably planning to invoke this trope in a bid for power. That, or he made a failsafe should [[TheStarscream they turn on him]].
* CloningBlues:
** Andross was cloned in the Nintendo Power comic and "reconstructed" in ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco''.
** In the Nintendo Power comic, ''two'' clones of Andross were made after he was killed. But the clones turned out not to be completely identical (besides being dressed in [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience different colors]]), with one clone more sentimental and the other clone [[EvilTwin more evil]]. One clone publically apologizes for killing Vixy, and the eviler clone quickly kills him for not being pure evil.
* CrazyPrepared: Had '''four''' backup plans in case his life was threatened. First plan was the robotic duplicate he deploys in the bad ending of ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' (and possibly the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 SNES game]] if the ''Melee'' trophy description is to be believed). Second was Shears and his [[CloningBlues reconstruction technology]]. Third was [[spoiler:that little incident on Dinosaur Planet (Sauria), which nearly resulted in him being reborn as a PhysicalGod]] in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]''. Fourth was [[spoiler:his "ghost" (believed to be a hologram programmed with his personality) which surfaces in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.]]
* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', some missions have Krystal suggest that he wasn't ''quite'' as evil initially. She mentions that he was looking for ways to terraform [[{{Mordor}} Venom]] (which, it should be noted, was a {{Retcon}} to the series), and she defends some of his biogenetic research (never mind the fact that ''he tried to suck out her life force''). Whether she's ''right'' or not is up for debate, as is whether it should be counted as canon. In ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero'', the incident that led to his banishment sparked over the distrust of his teleportation technology, which was deemed too unstable by authorities; Pepper banished him to another dimension using his own research against him.
* DependingOnTheArtist: Andross either has gray or purple hair, depending on the game.
* DubNameChange: Originally Andorf, though the [=GameCube=] titles temporarily used "Andross" in Japan.
* EmperorScientist: Emperor Andross was once Dr. Andross.
* EngineeredPublicConfession: Except not intentionally engineered. In the Nintendo Power comic, when Andross's [[CloningBlues two clones]] attack Papetoon, Andross (the good clone) sees Fara in the crowd and [[BodyDouble thinks she's Vixy]]. On loudspeaker, he proceeds to apologize to her for Vixy's AccidentalMurder many years prior. It's not even Fox or Vixy who exacts revenge by killing him either, but his evil clone due to the good clone not being evil enough.
%%* EvilGenius
* EvilOldFolks: He was apparently 64 years old at the time of his death.
* EvilOverlooker: In the intro to ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''.
%%* EvilSoundsDeep
* EvilutionaryBiologist: A good number of the bosses are biological weapons that Andross had a hand in creating, especially in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''. The Anglars in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' are implied to be his creations as well.
* TheExile: It didn't take.
* FantasticRacism: He has a deep hatred of dogs in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Zero]]'', openly mocking Fox for taking orders from General Pepper. This might have been a result of the Cornerians' distrust of him which eventually lead to his exile [[spoiler:in another dimension]].
* FinalBoss: He takes the role in the original, the unreleased ''Star Fox 2'', ''Star Fox 64'', ''Star Fox Zero''[[spoiler:, and ''Star Fox Adventures''.]] Despite how all of those games [[spoiler:except ''Adventures'']] have multiple paths, he is, barring his duplicate [[spoiler:and a Slot Machine]], always the final boss.
* FreudianExcuse: In the Nintendo Power comic, Andross explains that he loves robot pigs like Herbert because he was an orphan who was raised by robot pig parents, but they were destroyed by a Cornerian bomb test.
* GalacticConqueror: The Lylat Wars did see many planets of the Lylat system fall to him, though he never managed to take Corneria in the end.

%%* KubrickStare
%%* MadScientist
* TheManBehindTheMonsters: With the exception of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' (specifically the aparoids), every threat in the series, if it isn't Andross, had some ties to Andross: In ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco'', a renegade Cornerian officer named Captain Shears attempted to revive Andross via [[CloningBlues DNA reconstruction]]. In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'', he [[spoiler:[[HijackedByGanon manipulated]] General Scales and his [=SharpClaw=] army into doing his bidding]], and in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', it is implied that he was the one who created the Anglar Race in one of the scenarios.
%%* ManiacMonkeys
* MindOverMatter: Andross in the original ''[[VideoGame/StarFox1 Star Fox]]'' uses telekinesis.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: In the ''Nintendo Power'' comic based on the first game, this was what he intended to do to Fox's father because he was in love with his mother Vixy. But it didn't go as planned, and [[MurderByMistake she was killed by mistake]].
* MythologyGag: A giant polygonal face was used as a last boss in the first game, presumably because a monkey scientist isn't the best battle for a starfighter. Andross has regularly appeared as an enormous floating head in some form ever since. And said polygonal face made a cameo in the climax of ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco'' when Andross's clone was beginning to develop telepathic thoughts.
* OneWingedAngel: The giant brain in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''.
-->'''Andross:''' Only I have the [[{{Pun}} brains]] to rule Lylat!\\
'''Fox:''' So Andross, you show your true form.
* OnlyOneName: Though his nephew and grandson have both a first and last name, making it unclear whether his last name is Oikonny, Bowman, or neither.
* {{Pun}}: "Only I have the ''brains'' to rule Lylat."
* PunnyName:
** Andros(s) is Greek meaning "of a man". As a primate, he is the closest to human the series gets.
** His Japanese name, "Andorf," can be alternately romanized as "Andolf," punning on "android" and "Adolf" ([[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler as in, you know who]]).
* RevengeBeforeReason: Andross' greatest shortcoming is his unquenchable thirst for self-righteous vengeance. Got kicked off his home planet for unlawful experiments? Conquer the Lylat system! [[spoiler:Got destroyed in his conquest? ''Destroy'' the Lylat system!]]
* StalkerWithACrush: Heavily implied to be this for Vixy Reinard, to such an extent that he was willing to kill her husband and child, just so he could have her. It didn't go [[AccidentalMurder as well as he planned]].
* StealthPun: Judging from his tail, his nephew Andrew is a monkey, making him a monkey's uncle.
* TakingYouWithMe: [[InvokedTrope Quotes this trope verbatim]] in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''.
* {{Telekinesis}}: Implied to be how he can control his hands and otherwise keep his head [[spoiler:and brain]] levitated in the air.
* {{Teleportation}}: He has briefly demonstrated the ability to do this, though unlike the telekinesis, this is, [[AllThereInTheManual apparently]], an ability gained via using technology, rather than the experiments he performed on his body.
* TheUnfought: In the original ''Star Fox''. According to both the [[AllThereInTheManual Mission File Printout]] and the [[ComicStrip/StarFox tie-in comic]], the giant face that Fox faces on Venom is actually a [[MyselfMyAvatar remote-controlled computer designed to allow Andross to oversee Venom's army without actually being there himself.]] This is also implied by his trophy description in ''Super Smash Bros. Melee''. He is still unfought in the [[{{Vaporware}} unreleased]] ''Star Fox 2'', as the only thing that appears is [[ActuallyADoombot just another control computer.]] It's worth noting that the control unit is [[HeartDrive the cube]] ''[[HeartDrive inside]]'' [[HeartDrive the face,]] and not the face itself, which is more like a [[TheKidWithTheRemoteControl robotic guardian.]]
* VirtualGhost: Holograms of him appear in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' claiming to be the ghost of Andross. Though, it could actually be his ghost, as when his grandson, Dash, fights his bioweapons, he orders the bioweapon to stop attacking. A hologram would not be able to tell the difference between pilots.
* YouKilledMyFather: He was implied to have killed James [=McCloud=] when Pigma betrayed him, earning him Fox's bitter enmity, along with the additional crime of having unintentionally killed Fox's mother, Vixy, years prior (at least as far as the Nintendo Power comic goes). In addition, it is implied shortly after Krystal is imprisoned by him that he was the reason why Cerinia, Krystal's homeworld, was destroyed along with its people.

[[folder:Star Fox 2]]
When ''VideoGame/StarFox2'' was developed ([[VaporWare and not released]]), there were several characters designed to fill the roles of the fifth and sixth members of Star Fox. Fara (as "Lady") was considered, as well as Andross-lookalike "Saru" (believed to be a placeholder); later in development, she was replaced by a goat or ram with an unknown name, and the latter was replaced by a white dog named Fay. The latest known build instead gave the fifth slot to Miyu, a feline that resembled Fox. Since the two new pilots were both female, it also partially averted TheSmurfettePrinciple. None of these characters survived the ContinuityReboot. Star Wolf would have made its first appearance here (with a self-important lemur named "Algy" instead of Andrew), but they debuted proper in ''VideoGame/StarFox64''.

!'''Fara Phoenix'''
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Fara_Phoenix_collage_6906.jpg]]
Fara Phoenix first appeared in the [[ComicStrip/StarFox tie-in comic series]] for the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 first game]]. She also appeared in an early beta for the unreleased ''[[VideoGame/StarFox2 Star Fox 2]]'' as a playable character. Before the ContinuityReboot, she was Fox [=McCloud's=] love interest.
----
* ActionGirl: Though she makes her first appearance [[DamselInDistress as a hostage,]] she is the Arwing's chief test pilot for a reason. She is a member of Star Fox, and just like the rest of the team, [[http://oldgamemags.tumblr.com/post/135730324697/nintendo-power-51-august-1993-star-fox-comic she demonstrates an amazing level of skill.]] Her only mistake was to [[SurpriseDifficulty greatly underestimate]] the [[http://oldgamemags.tumblr.com/post/135535374319/nintendo-power-46-march-1993-star-fox-comic power of the Attack Carrier,]] a mistake she never repeated in any other instance.
* BattleCouple: With Fox [=McCloud=] Junior.
* DaddysGirl: Rather heavily implied when she's used as a [[HumanShield shield]] by a Venomian soldier. [[DownplayedTrope It doesn't have any effects beyond that scene.]]
* DangerDeadpan: Even with her Arwing on fire, [[CasualDangerDialog Fara acts as if everything is peachy keen.]] She's a test pilot, [[JustifiedTrope so it's likely she was trained this way: her flight data would be of future utility even if she died.]]
* TheSixthRanger: Fara became a full member of the Star Fox team in [[ComicStrip/StarFox the comic]].
* FlirtingUnderFire: With Fox, during her first flight in the comic.
* FutureSpandex: Her typical outfit is a spandex bodysuit.
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: When wearing Vixy's dress.
* HartmanHips: She fits this shape exactly.
* IdenticalStranger: Fara looks just like Fox's dead mother Vixy, to the point of being virtually indistinguishable from her when she puts on one of Vixy's dresses (in spite of the two being ''different species'' no less; Fara appears to be Fennec Fox, whilst Vixy looks like a Red Fox). Even Andross confuses Fara for Vixy, which causes him to become sentimental and delusional, and apologize ''[[EngineeredPublicConfession on loudspeaker]]'' for the AccidentalMurder of Vixy that no one else knew he'd committed.
* NonIdleRich: She's from a rich family, and is the chief test pilot of the Arwing Prototype and a member of Star Fox.
* NotWithThemForTheMoney: Fox's relationship with her. At no point does he show any interest in her money, [[DudeWheresMyReward much to Falco's dismay.]]
-->'''Falco:''' You could have asked for a moon!\\
'''Fox:''' Moons aren't nearly as comfortable.
* {{Ojou}}: Her background certainly leans towards this trope, but it's [[DownplayedTrope not an overwhelming part of the character.]]
* PinkMeansFeminine: Fara's replacement AceCustom Arwing (after she LeeroyJenkins'd the first) was pink.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Her - the [[AcePilot Chief Test Pilot]]'s - jumpsuit.
* RescueRomance: Implied with Fox at the very least. Fox (and Slippy) saved her from getting her head blown off by one of Andross's lizard troopers (attempting to use her as a hostage), he later stops his team from opening fire on her ship when she shows up during a training exercise, and then when they enter real combat, when her Arwing goes down, Fox manages to catch her ejected cockpit mid-air with his, before it crashes into the ground below. The second and third saves are commented upon.
* RoyaltiesHeir: Her father is a rich spaceship magnate.
* SpeciesSurname: "Phoenix" is probably a play on "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fennec_fox fennecs]]".

Miyu served as the fifth member of Star Fox in later builds of ''Star Fox 2'', replacing Fara/Lady. It is a reasonable assumption that she remained in the final revision, but not much is known about her personality and backstory.
----
* CanonDiscontinuity: To date, she has never appeared in an officially released Star Fox game.
* DissonantSerenity: She never loses her smile, despite the fact that she is fighting a war to prevent Corneria's total destruction. However, the nature of some of her dialogue implies that this is [[AvertedTrope unintentional:]] she only seems this way because she [[UsefulNotes/BitmapsSpritesAndTextures only has one expression in her her sprite images.]]
--> "No! The missiles are falling on Corneria!"
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: She notably [[FlirtingUnderFire blew a kiss]] to the player upon selection. It's believed that her flirtatious attitude was applied to her spiritual successor, Katt Monroe (this may have been confirmed in ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero'', as Katt now wears a golden earring on her left ear similar to Miyu's).

The observation and analysis robot assigned to the Great Fox, a dreadnaught-class battleship serving as the team's base of operations. He is first seen in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'', where he pilots the ship. In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', he acts as Peppy's assistant and beams down vehicles from the Great Fox to the ground level. He is the only character in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' that is present in every mission.
----
* ArtifactTitle: The "64" in his name tended to get dropped as the series went on, though it still showed up on occasion.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Some of his dialogue in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' as a result of his personality chip overriding his programming.
* DubNameChange: Originally [=NUS64=], though ''Farewell, Beloved Falco'', and ''Adventures'' temporarily used "ROB" in Japan. The cast roll of ''Assault'' merges both and lists his full name as [=ROB/NUS=]64.

->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/DaisukeSakaguchi (Japanese), Jock Blaney (English, Star Fox 64), Jaz Adams (English, Star Fox 64 3D)

Fox's childhood friend who stayed as a pilot in the Corneria Army while Fox went freelance. He first appears in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' on the Katina stage, where he and his squadron help the Star Fox team destroy an enemy mothership. He later reappears as a playable character in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''. He also appears for one level of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Zero]]''.

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Katt_Monroe_collage_2439.jpg]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Kyoko Tonguu (Japanese), Lyssa Browne (English)

Katt Monroe is a woman from Falco's past, when they were both members of the "FREE AS A BIRD" gang of space hot-rodders. The [[NoExportForYou Japanese]] {{Manga}} ''Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco'' shed some light on the nature of their relationship.

In ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' and ''[[Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco Farewell]]'', Katt was colored pink. She reappeared as a playable character in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', this time a grey cat.
----
%%* ActionGirl
* ArtShift: Went from her... [[YouDontLookLikeYou different]] design back to her original design in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxZero Zero]]''.
* BareYourMidriff: Katt seemed fond of dressing this way prior to her ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' redesign.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Invoked rather blatantly in ''[[Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco Farewell]]'', with one of the other hot rodders being a blue tomcat.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Before her RaceLift.
* RaceLift: Changing colors and cat breeds between ''[[Manga/FarewellBelovedFalco Farewell]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Apparently, Falco and Katt have ''never'' been an item and Falco doesn't express any desire of wanting one either. Doesn't seem to stop Katt from hoping for more from him.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Katt originally ''breathed'' this trope. Besides being pink, this was heavily reflected in the way she dressed, the way she did her hair, and especially her heavy blue eyeshadow.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: When Falco and Katt were younger, Katt used to need rescuing from trouble all the time, and Falco was the one to rescue her. But Falco not only wanted Katt to be a more self-reliant person, but also didn't appreciate Katt having a crush on him. Katt [[{{Xenafication}} finally became a capable woman]] when Falco's absence forced her to grow up.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.

!'''Caiman'''
Originally a minor grunt in the armada stationed just outside Venom's airspace, he could be heard panicking as the Star Fox team proceeds to blast their way through the impressive fleet stationed to defend Andross' base. Due to him being the only minor villain with a confirmed name and his constant presence in Area 6, he grew popular with the fanbase leading to a much larger role in ''Star Fox Zero'' where he commands the invasion fleets in Corneria and Area 3.
----
* AscendedExtra: He has a MUCH more prominant role in ''Star Fox Zero'' than he did in ''64''.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:Originally, he appeared to have survived the Lylat Wars. In ''Zero'', one route has him apparently killed on Corneria.]]
* TheUnfought: In ''64'' he's only ever seen commentating over Area 6. In Zero while he can be seen in some of the stages he isn't directly confronted in the first playthrough. Finally averted in the secret path on Corneria where he pilots the Aquarosa.
* VillainousBreakdown: He and his commander grow increasingly desperate as the Area 6 defenses are destroyed by Star Fox. When the final line is breached they deploy a superweapon originaly designed to ''destroy entire planets''.

!'''Krystal'''
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Krystal_collage_7638.jpg]]
->'''Voiced By:''' Aya Hara (Japanese, all games), Estelle Ellis (English, ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures''), Alesia Glidewell (English, ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'', ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'')

Krystal is Fox's on-again off-again LoveInterest who was introduced in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]''. She is a telepath, and replaced Peppy as the fourth active member of the team in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
----
* AbortedArc: Krystal sets off the plot of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'' by looking for clues about the death of her parents and her [[DoomedHometown doomed home world]] Cerinia. This is never brought up again. Then again, it could be argued that she didn't need to afterwards, seeing how it was implied that she recognized [[spoiler:Andross]] shortly before being sealed up, not to mention the possibility that he was the one who destroyed her home planet. [[spoiler:(Which might also explain why her first action upon being released from the crystal involved forcibly taking back her staff from Fox and [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge firing it like a maniac at the Krazoa God/Andross]].)]]
* AllThereInTheManual: The manual for ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' tells us that Krystal's home planet was Cerinia. Nowhere else in the games do we hear of that.
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Krystal ''is'' a fox, but foxes aren't blue (except for arctic foxes in certain regions, which are ''kind of'' blue). However, it should be noted she isn't exactly a normal fox even by Lylatian standards, so it's highly likely her coloration is a result of her Cerinian heritage.
* TheArtifact: Krystal has a sizeable (though hardly universal) fanbase in the West, but hasn't proven as popular in Japan. Since her introduction in ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', the creators have been increasingly unkind to her, but can't quite seem to find a way to keep her ''or'' [[PutOnABus write her out]] without upsetting some portion of the series' fans. ''VideoGame/StarFoxCommand'' handled this rather creatively, where some of the MultipleEndings are favorable to Krystal, while some others (including the default ending) decisively cast her aside. The latest title, ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero'', adheres to the original, pre-''Adventure'' status quo; leaving it open whether she'll be reintroduced in the new continuity or not.
* BadFuture: One of the endings for ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' has her leave Fox and become a ruthless bounty hunter (also renaming herself "Kursed" in the English version).
* BareYourMidriff: In her first appearance, as well as her appearance as an independent bounty hunter in an ending of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
* BarrierWarrior: ''Assault'' hints that this may be part of her {{telepath|y}}ic abilities, as in multiplayer mode she starts out with a free barrier item.
* BattleCouple: With Fox. ''Assault'' shows this off by having her be the team member to accompany him during the ground missions on Sauria and the aparoid homeworld.
* BritishAccents: Krystal, along with the entire population of Sauria besides Tricky, the [=EarthWalkers=], a [=CloudRunner=] and the [=LightFoots=]. This can be attributed to ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' being created in the United Kingdom.
* ButtMonkey: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Krystal one-ups Fox's orphan status by having her entire planet be destroyed as part of her origin (how hasn't been made fully clear yet, but [[spoiler:Andross was probably involved]]).
* DamselInDistress: [[spoiler:Andross]] had her trapped in a [[{{Pun}} crystal]] to [[spoiler:drain [[LifeEnergy her life-force]] and use it to become immortal. It nearly worked, until [[BigDamnHeroes Fox put a stop to it]].]]
* DemotedToSatelliteLoveInterest: Krystal is [[ActionGirl capable fighter]] who so happens to be [[TelepathicSpacemen adept at reading minds.]] She is also the SoleSurvivor [[LastOfHisKind of the destroyed planet]] [[DoomedHometown Cerenia,]] and is on a mission to discover why her planet was destroyed. [[AbortedArc Her entire backstory was dropped the moment she became Fox's]] ''SatelliteLoveInterest''.
* TheEmpath: This is her official designation when she joins the team. Her telepathic abilities are generally supposed to come in pretty handy at anticipating the enemies' movements. It even gets to the point where she can pick up on the thought patterns of completely alien creatures, like aparoids. This may be one explanation for how she is apparently able to speak both Dino and English.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Her and Fox's relationship. She generally tries to be more open about her feelings than Fox does.
* FaceHeelTurn: ''Sort of''. In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', Fox [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies dumped Krystal and kicked her out of Star Fox for her safety]]... and she promptly joined Star Wolf to continue piloting fighter planes and be with [[RomanticFalseLead Panther]]. As it turns out, Krystal ''liked'' her job (and being with Fox) -- to ''hell'' with the danger -- and was ''not'' happy about being fired and dumped. And boy, [[WhatTheHellHero does Fox get an earful]]. Not only from Krystal, [[EvenEvilHasStandards but from Star Wolf too!]]
* FriendlyEnemy: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
* HappilyMarried: In one of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'''s endings a possible future has Krystal finally settling with Fox.
* HartmanHips: Seems [=McCloud=] men are naturally attracted to women with this feature.
* IAmNotWeasel: There are still a very few amount of people familiar with the franchise who believe that Krystal is a cat (rather than a blue fox). Barely justified in that when ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'' was still being developed as ''Dinosaur Planet'', she had more of a feline design; however, information leaked of the game's original storyline later on reveals that she was always intended to be a vixen. It doesn't help that Nintendo Power ''themselves'' refer to her as such.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: In the sixth mission of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', where Krystal's deployed on the ground, there is an extremely slim chance that she will hit one of the hatchers (the target) that Fox must destroy. Otherwise, this is averted.
* LastOfHisKind: Krystal is the SoleSurvivor of Cerinia's destruction.
* LoveAtFirstSight: Whilst Fox was clearly enamoured by her when he saw her, the way she looks into his eyes when he pulls her to safety implies the same may have been true for her.
* MagicStaff: Used one in ''Adventures'', but she abandoned it in her subsequent appearances, obviously due to its close-combat range and limited magic power being completely impractical in the kind of combat she goes into upon joining Star Fox.
* MayDecemberRomance: While Krystal was noticeably matured from her 16 year old design in ''Dinosaur Planet'', her age isn't given in most sources; however, the [[https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ngc/gsaj/chara/index.html Japanese website]] of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' lists the current ages of the major characters, revealing that Krystal was 19 and Fox was 26 at the time, leaving a notable seven-year age gap between them.
%%* MsFanservice
%%* NiceGirl
* NubileSavage: Her default attire from ''Adventures'', LoinCloth[[note]]there are camera angles that reveal either white fur or panties underneath[[/note]], metal bikini top, assorted jewelry, and tribal tattoos. Generally, it's believed that all Cerinians had a similar dress sense. She ditches the outfit for a SpyCatsuit in ''Assault''.
* OfficialCouple: With Fox, starting with the end of ''Adventures''. The relationship is on full display in ''Assault'', though they break up by ''Command'' because [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies Fox is worried for Krystal's safety]]. Depending on the ending, they can reconcile or even have a child, or stay permanently broken up.
* OnlyOneName: Krystal has never been shown to possess a surname, nor does she make any reference to having one, most likely due to her different cultural background to the other Lylatians.
* OperationJealousy: Part of the reason she joined Star Wolf and began a relationship with Panther in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' was to make Fox jealous for kicking her off Star Fox. Judging by his reactions, it worked.
* RescueRomance: Seems to be one of the reasons why she fell for Fox. He not only saved her from having the life-force sucked out of her as a result of her entrapment, but also caught her from falling to her death when she was freed from her prison.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Complete with cheesy {{Sexophone}} music and negligible character development.
* ShoutOut: Krystal's imprisonment in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'' is similar to Zelda's in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]''.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Officially, she was the only female full-time member of the Star Fox team ''or'' the Star Wolf team.
* {{Stripperific}}: In her first appearance. She tones it down to a SpyCatsuit in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
* {{Telepathy}}: How she communicates Fox during most of ''Adventures'' until their face-to-face meeting near the end of the game.
* ThatManIsDead: Seems to be her attitude when she becomes a bounty hunter in one of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'''s alternate endings. She turns her back on Star Fox, Star Wolf, and the entire Lylat system altogether. So much is her departure from her former life, that she encounters Fox some time later, and ''he doesn't even recognize her'' (one must wonder how many other blue vixens exist in Lylat). In fact, even before becoming a bounty hunter, she had hints of this in her dialogue when Fox rediscovers her among Star Wolf. It had more to do with her changed attitude from being gentle and sweet to bitter and spiteful.
-->'''Krystal:''' The Krystal you once knew is gone. [[WhatTheHellHero She is no longer a part of your world!]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: In ''Command'', she becomes more stubborn and cynical.
* WomanScorned: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: She is much younger than the rest of the team, which should all be pushing or into their thirties by ''Command''.

Before Fox leaves the planet, he makes Tricky an honorary member of Star Fox, although he remains on the planet. Later on, Fox meets up with him again, and he is now a grown [=EarthWalker=].

* SeldomSeenSpecies: He bears resemblance to ''Centrosaurus'', a relative of ''Triceratops'' (which he is often mistaken for, despite having only one horn).
* ShipperOnDeck: As he escorts Fox and Krystal back to the Arwing, he wants them to comeback for their honeymoon. Fox's reaction is priceless.
* SoapOperaRapidAgingSyndrome: Between ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', Tricky grew from being pet-sized to big enough to flatten Fox. Justified since he's a ceratopsid, and those were known to get pretty darned big.

Head of the [=SharpClaw=] tribe of dinosaurs on Dinosaur Planet (later Sauria), he is a warlord in the midst of conquering Sauria for his own -- and has even managed to shatter the planet into pieces by removing its [=SpellStones=]. He is the BigBad of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures''.
----
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Given how unpopular he is (see BadBoss below), it is likely that he only remained in charge through force, and fear of force.
* {{Badass}}: He doesn't get many opportunities to show it, but he has ''no'' difficulty in lifting people (including the Queen [=CloudRunner=]) up to the height of his ''chest''.
* BadassLongcoat: Wears [[BuffySpeak something longcoatish]] when first introduced.
* BadBoss: He shows such disdain for the well-being of his own troops, that when he is finally dead at the end of the game, the [=SharpClaws=] are ''happy'' and busy celebrating being set free of his rule.
* BaitAndSwitchBoss: He's this in [=CloudRunner=] Fortress. When Fox meets him after reaching the gold chamber, he orders the present [=SharpClaw=] Riders to take the [=SpellStone=] elsewhere so Fox is distracted retrieving it, thus buying Scales time to warp away from the place.
* BerserkButton: He gets ''really'' pissed off by the Queen [=CloudRunner=] lying to him about Fox's whereabouts/existence. So pissed off, in fact, that he tramples two of his own men to grab her in a NeckLift. Even in the pre-''Star Fox'' version (''Dinosaur Planet''), he was so pissed off he had outright ''killed'' the queen, thus forcing the very young [=CloudRunner=] chick Kyte to resume duties as the new queen in the end of the game.
* ColonelKilgore: Certainly the most violent of his kind.
* CoolHelmet: Horned.
* TheHeavy: [[spoiler:Andross is the BigBad, but Scales still unwittingly does most of the work.]]
* NeckLift: Repeatedly, first with Krystal in the intro.
* PureIsNotGood: Implied with Scales not only being present in a Krazoa Shrine, but also possessing a Krazoa Spirit (it was earlier stated that only the pure of heart can gain a Krazoa Spirit).
* TheNeidermeyer: Hated by his own troops to the point that [[spoiler:the reinforcements he calls in during the non-boss battle don't make a move, then loot him the moment he drops]].
* TheUnfought: As soon as the intended battle begins, [[spoiler:Andross interrupts it and orders Scales to give the last Krazoa Spirit to Fox]].

The main villain of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault''. The HiveQueen of the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts aparoids]], she wants all life forms to become one with her hive, because she believes only through assimilating living souls can she and her species truly evolve. A big fan of MindRape.
----

* BigBad: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
* CaptainErsatz: [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Borg]] [[XMeetsY meets]] [[Film/StarshipTroopers space Bugs]].
* CreepyMonotone: She is the only aparoid in the entire game to have a voice. And boy, is it a creepy one... Those infected by the aparoids also start taking on this form of speaking (particularly Pigma).
* DeathByIrony: Tries to commit galaxy-wide genocide by wiping out every single known form of life and replacing it with that of the aparoids, often by infecting machines or the living cells of other creatures. [[spoiler:She's killed by having what is a genetic bomb fired into her, which targets cells in her body designed for "apoptosis" (an scientific term relating to the death of cellular activity), which due to her HiveMind connection ensures the complete and utter destruction of the entire aparoid race.]]
* EvilutionaryBiologist: Kind of. It was stated after her defeat that her main motivation for the AssimilationPlot was that she wanted to bypass evolution by stealing souls, apparently because she was born without one, and thus couldn't evolve. [[ContemplateOurNavels It was a little weird.]]
* {{Expy}}: As the aparoids were basically the Borg to Star Fox's Franchise/StarTrek, the aparoid queen is the Borg Queen.
%%* HiveMind
* HiveQueen: Queen of the aparoid collective.
* MindRape: Attempts this on the Star Fox team (Fox in particular) when they meet her face to face, but fails.
** It also failed in a way because she didn't do the proper research on James [=McCloud=], given that she used his voice to try to break his spirit, but James would not have been the kind of person to tell Fox to give up, something that Fox knew more than anyone else.
* RoyalWe: "All for us. Everything in this universe, all for us. Bow before us, submit to us!" Granted this might also be a case of VoiceOfTheLegion due to the Hive Mind.
* ShapeShifterGuiltTrip: Uses the voices of various characters to get into Star Fox's heads during the first phase of her battle.
* WeHaveReserves: Her combat "strategy" mostly consists of flinging aparoids at problems until the problems go away. Given the sheer number of aparoids at her disposal and how hard they are to kill, this works out pretty well for her.

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dash_Bowman_collage_1192.png]]

Andross's grandson, who serves in the Corneria Army and hero-worships Fox and Falco. He is a playable character in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''. Administrivia/NeedsABetterDescription.
----
* DubNameChange: From "Ash" to "Dash".
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Provided the below doesn't happen, he is the only positive example of a primate in the series.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Nothing prior in the series ever truly suggested that Andross had children, let alone grandchildren (though given Andrew, he clearly had relatives), so Dash kinda seems to come out of nowhere.
* TurnOutLikeHisFather: One of the ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' endings suggests Dash will become a tyrant like his grandfather Andross did; another suggests the opposite, that he colonizes Venom without his grandfather's ill intent.
* YouKilledMyFather: Averted. Although Fox killed Andross, his grandfather, Dash Bowman has absolutely no hate for Fox killing him. In fact, his profile states he "thinks the world of Star Fox and its member pilots." Indeed, he is quite willing to fight alongside the team.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's significantly younger than the other characters, and Falco makes fun of him for being JustAKid.

!'''Lucy Hare'''
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lucy_Hare_collage_581.png]]

The daughter of Peppy and Vivian, who becomes a playable character in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''. She teaches Astrophysics on the planet Fichina.
----
* BadassTeacher: She's a university professor who wants to help people... with her powerful plasma cannons.
%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* OffModel: Lucy is a shade of lavender in the promotional art and game icons, but is grey (with lavender hair) in the story scenes.
* ParentalAbandonment: Vivian [[MissingMom died]] before Lucy reached adulthood, so Lucy only has her father Peppy.
%%* PinkMeansFeminine
* RememberTheNewGuy: Considering how it's implied that the [=McCloud=], Hare, and Toad families have generally been very close both personally and professionally, it does come across as somewhat odd that Peppy's daughter would never be mentioned until now.
* ShipperOnDeck: She thought Fox screwed up when he broke up with Krystal when she asked why. Let's not forget the fact that Lucy and Krystal have been pretty good friends.
* SpeciesSurname: She's a hare, and her last name is Hare.

!'''Vivian Hare'''
[[quoteright:256:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/VivianHare_4701.jpg]]

Peppy's wife and Lucy's mother who died of illness.
----
* HappilyMarried: What little is given of it suggests that her and Peppy were this before she died.
%%* MissingMom
* NonIndicativeName: "Vivian" means "alive", but she is no longer with us (except in our hearts).
* PosthumousCharacter: Combined with RememberTheNewGuy since we don't even hear about Peppy ''having'' a wife until after she's dead.
* SpeciesSurname: Though unlike other characters, she presumably gained her surname by marrying Peppy.
* ThemeNaming: "Vivian" means "alive", which matches Peppy's name, which means "lively".

!'''Marcus'''
[[quoteright:256:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9cff5cdf18281aa304be7236ac437b76.png]]

Fox and Krystal's son and the leader of a new Star Fox team, from a possible future opened up by ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.

%%* AlliterativeName
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Both of his parents are foxes; however, Marcus ends up with a blue coloration like his Cerinian mother.
* BabiesEverAfter: The ending in which he appears is one where Fox and Krystal settle down and have a kid named Marcus.
* CanonDiscontinuity: Possibly. Due to ''Command'' not having a true ending, it remains unknown whether Marcus's birth is a definitive part of the series or not.
* GenerationXerox: He inherited his father and grandfather's piloting skills, and starts his own Star Fox team.
* LegacyCharacter: Is the leader of a new Star Fox team in a possible future.
* PassingTheTorch: Unlike James and Fox, it seems that Marcus ends up becoming Star Fox leader without Fox suffering some kind of tragedy and has his father alive and well, albeit retired, to see him take the reigns.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Aside from his blue fur, which he inherited from his mother, Marcus looks very similar to Fox.

!'''Grippy Toad'''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other Bosses Debuting in the Original]]
!'''Attack Carrier'''
->'''Attack Carrier pilot:''' "Ah..someone wants to play!" \\
'''Peppy:''' "Incoming enemy from the rear! Drop altitude!"

The source of the enemy fighters on Corneria in the first game and ''64''. It also appears in ''Zero'', making it a consistent element of the Lylat Wars, but much later in the game's events.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The openings of its appendages, then the body.
* BossSubtitles: Originally "[[Franchise/BattlestarGalactica Battlestar]]" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Advance Scout Mothership" in the Super Nintendo manual. Revised as "Interplanetary Warship/Combat Ship".
%%* DidntNeedThoseAnyway
* FlunkyBoss: The entire invasion of Corneria in the first two games was pretty much a FlunkyBoss fight against it.
* MythologyGag
* WarmUpBoss: It ''is'' the first boss in the franchise. Averted on the Level 3 course of the original and the easy path in ''64''.

!'''Rock/Meteo Crusher'''
->'''Meteo Crusher pilot:''' "I cannot allow you to go any further."

Developed and sent by Andross to clear asteroids for his main battle armada. The Rock Crusher is in the original and the Meteo Crusher is in ''64'', although both are extremely similar and fulfill the same role.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: In the original, you attack the glowing turrets and then the centerpiece. In ''64'', you attack the arrows behind the shield, then the light on its back, and finally two openings on the front.
* BossSubtitles: "Asteroid Destroyer Boat" in Japanese versions, and simply "Asteroid Destroyer" in English versions.
* DidntNeedThoseAnyway: There's a shield that flies off both the Rock Crusher and Meteo Crusher.
* MythologyGag: Even if the two aren't the same, the second is doubtlessly a reference to the original. To further the reference, the first part of the ''64'' incarnation bears some similarites to the Blade Barrier, the other Asteroid Belt boss from the original.
* SkippableBoss: In ''64'', activating the warp gate to Katina outright skips the battle with it.
* SuddenlyShouting: As part of his Victory Fakeout in ''64'' if Falco is there. "You're not as stupid as you LOOK!"
* VictoryFakeout: "I'm no match for you. I admit defeat." Falco doesn't buy it ("Are you gonna listen to that monkey?") and if Slippy is around, the health meter will still be intact. For reference, as he says the second part, [[ISurrenderSuckers he begins charging up a laser]]. If you're hit by that laser, you ''will'' feel it.

!'''Atomic Base'''

Two separate cores of giant ships. Defeating them destroys the whole ship.

* BossSubtitles: In the Super Famicom manual, "Supreme Command Ship" for Atomic Base and "Base Expansion Engine" for Atomic Base II. In the Super Nintendo manual, "Planet Bomber" for Atomic Base and "Invasion Troop Carrier" for Atomic Base II.
* CoresAndTurretsBoss: With two layers of cores.
* LoadBearingBoss: It's the foundation of each ship, after all.
%%* ShieldedCoreBoss: Literally.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Called Atomic Core in the instruction manual, although Atomic Base II is still the same.
* TookALevelInBadass: The second one, unlike the stronger Attack Carrier and Rock Crusher, is ''much'' stronger than the first.

!'''Dancing Insector'''

An automaton modified to defend the Battle Base Meteor, an artificial asteroid intended to be "Meteor Land" before Andross' arrival.

* BossSubtitles: "Spider Type Remodelled Weapon" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Spider Shaped Machine" in the Super Nintendo manual.
* DanceBattler: ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* DidntNeedThoseAnyway: The legs.
* MiniMecha: Its true form.
* ThisWasHisTrueForm: Those legs are attachments. Its true form is its much smaller head.
* WakeUpCallBoss: This is the first boss to present a noticeable challenge.

!'''Phantron'''

A defence robot in case of a full-frontal attack that has illusionary powers.

* BossSubtitles: "Space Float Robot" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Special Close Orbit Robot" in the Super Nintendo manual.
* DamageSpongeBoss: He has quite a lot more health after going OneWingedAngel.
* DidntNeedThoseAnyway: He throws a leg at you after going One Winged Angel. He then grows it back.
* TheDragon: To Andross on Level 1.
%%* FragileSpeedster: His default attack methods. His OneWingedAngel form ditches this.
%%* MasterOfIllusion
%%* MiniMecha
* OneHitKill: If you use a SmartBomb on the first fight. [[spoiler:Don't move to avoid it.]]
* OneWingedAngel: When he grows legs.
* RecurringBoss: On Level 1.
* ScareChord: As he goes OneWingedAngel.
* SequentialBoss: The second fight.
* VictoryFakeout: The second fight.
* YourMindMakesItReal: His illusion selves hurt.

!'''Professor Hanger'''

A computer in charge of Andross's forces on the planet Titania.

* BossSubtitles: "Resources Defense Brain" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Master Computer" in the Super Nintendo manual.
* CowardlyBoss: Will flee after using its Shadow Thrusters. Lampshaded with the whole BYE BYE!! thing at the beginning.
* DamageSpongeBoss: Has more health than average.
* MiniMecha: Compared to everything else.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Professor Hangar in the instruction booklet.

!'''Plasma Hydra'''

A mechanical lifeform harvesting hydrogen in Sector Y.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The hands at first.
* BossSubtitles: "[[MechanicalLifeforms Mechanical Lifeform]]" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Hydrogen Harvester" in the Super Nintendo manual.
* KaizoTrap: Has one last attack for when you beat it.

!'''Metal Smasher'''

A twin mechanism guarding the back of Venom.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The center of both sides.
* BossSubtitles: "Supergravity Satellite" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Super Gravity Powered" in the Super Nintendo manual.
* DamageSpongeBoss: You only need to beat one, but both have a lot of health.
* SelfDestructMechanism: Apparently has one that the Galactic Rider used.
* TacticalWithdrawal: After destroying one, the Galactic Rider activate its self destruct before fleeing.

!'''Galactic Rider'''

After defeating the Metal Smasher, an escape pod piloted by bikers flees the scene. Thanks to the manual and game contradicting each other, we have no clue on whether or not the bikers or escape pod is the boss.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Inside the escape pod.
* BossSubtitles: "Central Security Machine" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Central Guard Machines" in the Super Nintendo manual.
* TheDragon: In Level 2.
%%* FlunkyBoss
* MindScrew: Just try and figure out what the boss name refers to. Is it the escape pod, the bikers...
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Literally. The manual evidently believes that the bikers are the bosses using the escape pod as a weapon, while the game believes that it is the escape pod using the bikers as weapons. Gameplay-wise, however, it's the escape pod, listing "Air Bikers" as weapons.

!'''Destructor'''

An assault tank that assisted in the invasion of Corneria.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: First the front of the shields, then the turrets.
* BossSubtitles: "Wide-Angle Assault Tank" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Ground Supremacy Vehicle" in the Super Nintendo manual.
* ShieldedCoreBoss: One shield for each core. And each shield can heal its core.
* WarmUpBoss: For the Level 3 course.

!'''Blade Barrier'''

A small space station in the Asteroid Belt.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Six little things sticking out of it.
* BossSubtitles: "Small Station" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Space Station" in the Super Nintendo manual.
* KaizoTrap: It fires its fan out upon defeat.
* WarmUpBoss: We still haven't gotten to the really hard bosses yet...

!'''Monarch Dodora'''

A bicephalic, primordial, cybernetic bird-dragon hybrid reigning over the planet Fortuna. In ''Command'', it inexplicably appears as one of Andross's guardians on Titania. It makes yet another appearance in ''Zero'' as the leading bioweapon on Fortuna, making it one of two bosses other than Andross and Star Wolf to appear in all three continuities.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: First its head or tails, then the body.
* BossSubtitles: "Cyborg Double-Headed Dragon" in the Super Famicom manual, "Primitive Dinosaur" in the Super Nintendo manual, "Ancient Mechanical Bird-Dragon" in the Japanese version of ''Zero'', and "Ancient Mechanical Raptor" in the English version of ''Zero''.
* BreathWeapon: Fire Breath is its primary weapon, though it has other tricks to catch potential prey off-guard.
* {{Cyborg}}: Andross is presumably the reason for its [[MechanicalLifeforms inorganic visage]] and its [[LivingWeapon powers exceeding state-of-the-art weapons]].
* DistaffCounterpart: King Dodora, which had one head and didn't lay eggs, appeared in a later build of the unreleased ''VideoGame/StarFox2''.
* FlunkyBoss: In the original, it would lay eggs that would hatch almost instantly, while in ''Zero'', its tornadoes would generate enemies.
* HijackedByGanon: [[spoiler:Andross's ghost]] controls it in ''Command'', although certain dialog [[spoiler:against his grandson]] suggests it has become unruly.
* MixAndMatchCritters: It's a cross between [[FeatheredFiend a bird]] and [[OurDragonsAreDifferent a dragon]], even though localization tends to call it [[DinosaursAreDragons some kind of dinosaur]].
* MotherNature: [[AllThereInTheManual The Super Nintendo manual]] claims that this giant dragon is the living spirit of Fortuna.
* MythologyGag
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: [[AllThereInTheManual According to the Super Nintendo manual]], its name is ostensibly feared throughout the Lylat system.
* PaletteSwap: Cosmic Dodora, the "Interstellar Mechanical Raptor", is a red version of Monarch Dodora that flies through space in ''Zero''.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Monarch Dodra in the Super Nintendo manual and ''Command'', but Monarch Dodora in the original game itself, the comics, and ''Zero''.
* WakeUpCallBoss: This is the first boss that experienced players can call ThatOneBoss in Level 3.

!'''Spinning Core'''

A massive drilling device causing geological harm on the planet Macbeth.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: First the turrets, then some yellow thing.
* BossSubtitles: "Lightspeed Spinning Body" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Light Speed Revolution" in the Super Nintendo manual.
* RushBoss: It's a pretty hectic fight.

!'''Great Commander'''

A three-piece mecha that combines into one.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The second fight has the small opening on the bottom, but the first fight has [[ThatOneBoss the much more infamous]] turrets.
* BossSubtitles: "United Battleship" in the Super Famicom manual, and "Final Battleship" in the Super Nintendo manual.
%%* CombiningMecha
* TheDragon: In Level 3.
* MiniMecha: The top ship.
%%* RecurringBoss
* SequentialBoss: The second fight.
* ShoutOut: The first form of the second boss looks like R.O.B.
* TransformingMecha: The second fight.

!'''Slot Machine'''

An unnamed boss of Out of This Dimension in the original. We have no clue about anything else.

%%* BossRemix: Oh, when the saints... go marching in...
* FinalBoss: Of the secret ending.
%%* LuckBasedMission: Good luck.
* MarathonBoss: If you're really unlucky.
* PuzzleBoss: Get Triple Sevens.
* WalkingSpoiler: As the most well-hidden boss in the entire franchise, it gets this status.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other Bosses Debuting in 64]]
!'''Granga'''
->"You annoying little flies!"

An overly cocky monkey and his mech with a very easily exploitable weakness. The boss of Corneria if you don't fulfill the requirements for a mission accomplished.

* AllThereInTheManual: According to the Nintendo Power player's guide, Granga is the name of the pilot, not the mech. Japanese material and ''Star Fox 64 3D'' makes it clear that it's the other way around, though, but that doesn't stop some fans from believing otherwise or even thinking that it's ''both''.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: The green thing on his back, but just for fun, try shooting him elsewhere to see what you can destroy.
* BossSubtitles: "Urban-Assault Weapon" in ''Star Fox 64 3D''.
%%* SmallNameBigEgo
* WarmUpBoss: [[RealityEnsues You can destroy its legs and it can't move.]] This is by no means necessary to defeat it.

!'''Shogun Warlord'''
->"Don't party just yet. It's time to try our new weapon."

The boss of Sector Y. Taunts you throughout the battle.

* UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents: The English version has him talking in what sounds kind of like a Bostonian accent, barely pronouncing the letter R at all. Combine this with the fact that his opening taunt is "Don't party just yet!" and you get unintentional ToiletHumor.
* BossSubtitles: "Combat Robot" in ''Star Fox 64 3D''.
* DubNameChange: From "Saru Death II" in Japan.
* FlunkyBoss: When the boss fight starts, you'll be facing two Shoguns, one blue and one yellow. The "boss health bar" displayed is the sum of ''both'' of their health bars. Each one is worth four hits. Only once both are destroyed does the real boss arrive.
* FragileSpeedster: The smallest boss you face in the game (yes, even including the Copperheads from Sector Z), and the most mobile, flitting about erratically. Both he and his flunkies also have their entire bodies as weak points (although the boss at least takes reduced damage with his shield), covering the "fragile" part of the trope name.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: While he still can be damaged with his shield, his health bar will deplete far more rapidly once it's gone.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: "I'll take you guys out from the ship!" When he does this, the small erratically moving target becomes a small ''stationary'' target. That said, he recovers health while he's on the ship.

!'''Saucerer'''

The boss of Katina. Releases waves of enemy units, but is also equipped with a powerful laser weapon of its own that takes a full minute to charge.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The four hatches, then the core. Or, if you take a long time, just the core.
* BossSubtitles: "Flying Assault Fortress" in ''Star Fox 64 3D''.
* DubNameChange: From "Great Dish" in Japan.
%%* FlunkyBoss
* ShoutOut: To ''Film/IndependenceDay''.
* TimeLimitBoss: Once you've destroyed the four hatches that are releasing enemy ships (or after a certain length of time, if you spend too much time trying to pad your score with said enemies), the core appears and the ship's WaveMotionGun starts charging. You have to destroy the core before the weapon charges to get the GoodEnding to the level.
* WaveMotionGun: Takes a full minute to charge.

!'''Bacoon'''

A massive ancient clam-like creature that was modified into an undersea bio-weapon by Andross. Fox and his team are sent to the aquatic planet Aquas in order to destroy it.

* AllThereIntheManual: The Official Player's Guide states that Bacoon, having existed long before Andross, grew resentful of the Aquasians, who once lived above the water, so Bacoon learned to command the sea life and sent thousands of the exploding starfish to the polar caps and detonated them, flooding the planet and sinking the whole civilization forever.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: First the two support...things, and then you need to attack the barrier enough so you can GoForTheEye.
* BossSubtitles: "Bioweapon" in ''Star Fox 64 3D'', which it shares with Vulcain.
* {{Cyclops}}: Its ultimate weak point is its singular eye, but this is well protected.
* FlunkyBoss: Sort of. The three tubes on top of its shell can be destroyed for extra points, but only before you finish the first stage of the boss battle.
* GoForTheEye: TropeNamer courtesy of Peppy's advice.
* HealingFactor: The rock-firing tubes on either side of its main body regenerate after a little while. It's not necessary to take them out, but doing so gives you a clearer shot at its weakness.

!'''Spyborg'''

A robotic weapon developed by Andross that malfunctioned and destroyed the Sector X base. Fox and company attempt to find it in the ruins and put a stop to it once and for all.

* AIIsACrapshoot: The Star Fox team expected a Venomian base in Sector X. They found a bunch of ruins and a malfunctioning Venomian robot.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: The headpiece.
* AxCrazy: "Destroy. Destroy." "I will terminate all enemies."
* BossSubtitles: {{Averted}}; Spyborg is the only regular boss that lacks one of these in ''3D''.
* DubNameChange: From "[[UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem HVC-09]]" in Japan.
* {{Expy}}: Its slightly supernatural nature is reminiscent of Phantron and Plasma Hydra, especially the latter.
%%* GoneHorriblyWrong
* InterfaceSpoiler: If Slippy was otherwise missing for the Sector X mission, he'll unexpectedly show up right when you reach the boss, which [[LampshadeHanging Fox will comment on.]] Care to guess who will play an important role in this battle?
* LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand: After the PlayingPossum bit.
* PlayingPossum: Its health bar unexpectedly and abruptly drops to zero when it's taken down to about half -- and then shoots right back up to where it's supposed to be.
* SkippableBoss: If you take the warp to Sector Z, you won't have to face Spyborg at all.
* TimeLimitBoss: There's no actual timer on-screen, but after the robot crashes and revives, you only have a short time to finish it before Slippy jumps in to try to help. This, of course, fails miserably, and the team has to abandon their plans to attack Andross's base on Macbeth in order to rescue Slippy, who has crash-landed on Titania. If you were aiming for a medal, it's gone now, as the secondary requirement for one (after the point requirement) is to have all wingmen alive at the end of the stage. To add insult to injury, going to Titania locks you out of going to Area 6, and by extension, the "advanced" version of Venom.
** Combine this with the warp gate mentioned above, and Sector X is the only mission in the game that has three branches.
* TheUnintelligible: Not entirely, but his heavy RoboSpeak can be difficult to understand.
--> '''Fox''': "What's he saying?"

!'''Vulcain'''
-> '''Peppy:''' "THIS is the enemy's bio-weapon!? " \\
'''Falco:''' "Andross is an insane fool!"

Heat-resistant bio-weapon found on Solar.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The arms, then the head.
* BossSubtitles: "Bioweapon" in ''Star Fox 64 3D'', same as Bacoon's.
* DubNameChange: From "Sanger" in Japan.
* MadeOfExplodium: Despite being a bioweapon rather than a mech, it explodes when defeated, with a flash of light coming from its body.
* PlayingWithFire: Lava flowing from where its arms used to be, after you destroy its arms.
* YoureInsane: It's this boss where the team - Falco in particular - realize how insane Andross is and call him out on it.

!'''Sarumarine'''
->"Disrespectful little whelps! I'll teach ye some respect!"

The boss of Zoness. Heavily armored. ''Very'' heavily.

* AttackAttackAttack:
** Even if you blow its periscope off, it'll still fire the ball-and-chain while underwater. ("I can't see a thing! Fire anyway!") This can be ''more'' dangerous, as it's easier to dodge when you know where he's aiming.
** After blowing off the crane and both cannons, his last-ditch attack is to fire everything he has at you.
---> "Fire! Fire!"
* AttackItsWeakPoint: Before you can really hurt the boss, you have to destroy two pipes. Then, you have to destroy one of the cannons, which will reveal a crane. The crane will recover the cannons, so that has to go. After that, you destroy the cannons for good. Finally, you can attack the main body - with regular lasers this time, too!
* BossSubtitles: "Illegally Modified Research Vessel" in ''Star Fox 64 3D''.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Its periscope can be spotted checking out the team midway through the level.
* EpicFlail: An enormous spiked ball-and-chain that it uses while underwater and also as a last-ditch attack.
* EvilLaugh: If he hits you with certain attacks.
* PuzzleBoss: Its parts have to be destroyed in a certain order, and destroying one of its cannons too early in the battle will only prolong it as the boss dives underwater to retrieve it. Also, only bombs can pierce its armor.
* SuperToughness: Lasers are completely useless in the first stage of the battle and ineffective during the second stage (where you still have to use a bomb to get the ball rolling). Only after it's already on the brink of destruction are your lasers able to damage it without any help from your bombs.
* TacticalSuicideBoss: More than capable of destroying you with its ball-and-chain and its "torpedoes", and at the end it even starts firing lasers. If it didn't fire those green balls at you from its cannons, you'd never be able to get enough bombs to finish it off.

!'''Goras'''

An ancient Titanian monster, and the only boss that is confirmed not to be one of Andross's creations, though he did modify it. Captures Slippy on Titania.

* AllThereInTheManual: The deserted planet of Titania once had a thriving culture of farming communities, and the villagers would leave a portion of their harvests at temples in order to appease the fearsome Goras. Absolutely none of this history appears in the game, instead being filled in in the Official Player's Guide.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: Destroy the arms to get it to reveal its vulnerable heart.
* BewareMyStingerTail: Given that this game features collision damage, a tail-swipe attack was inevitable.
* BossSubtitles: "Prehistoric Beast" in ''Star Fox 64 3D''.
%%* BreathWeapon
%%* DemBones
* {{Expy}}: Possibly one of Monarch Dodora.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Four arms -- two that have hammers at the end, and two that fire lasers. One of the latter is holding Slippy at the start of the battle.

!'''The Forever Train'''

The boss of Macbeth. Both it and its conductor are a presence throughout the stage aside from one stretch where it speeds too far ahead of you. Can be beaten in two different ways.

* AttackAttackRetreatRetreat: His cry of "No! Hit the brakes!" if you've successfully derailed the train comes almost ''immediately'' after he says "Step on the gas!".
* AttackItsWeakPoint: During Mechbeth's second phase, you need to pay attention to the train when it opens to attack, at which point you need to shoot it to make Mechbeth vulnerable.
* BattleshipRaid: The train is visible to your left at the very beginning of the stage, and if not dealt with, it'll start making your life miserable almost as quickly. Most of the earlier cars don't strictly ''have'' to be destroyed.
* DishingOutDirt: One of its favorite tactics is to throw rocks at you. After it's already done this a few times, there's a segment where it starts firing explosives at you, briefly pauses, and decides to fire them at the canyon walls instead to ''drop more rocks on you''.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Assuming you reached this level (the "medium difficulty" fifth mission) for the first time before reaching Sector Z (the "hard difficulty" fifth mission) for the first time, the appearance of a Copperhead missile on one of the train cars near the end is this.
* NoNameGiven: Technically, it doesn't have a name. The name "The Forever Train" comes from Macbeth's level subtitle; hence fans tend to refer it as such.
* PuzzleBoss: To get to the more advanced route, you have to shoot eight switches to unlock the track switcher box, then shoot that switch to change the track. The conductor will be unable to stop the train and it will go careening into the fuel bunker, blowing both up. Failing to beat it in this manner will lead to you having to finish the fight with the recently revealed...

!'''Mechbeth'''

A bioweapon carried on one of the front-most cars of the Forever Train. Shortly before you reach the weapons factory, the conductor decides that Star Fox has been too much of a nuisance and that he has no choice but to unleash this on them.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: First the head and the claw, and after that, you need to hit the train when it opens for it to reveal its last weak point.
* BewareMyStingerTail: It stabs you, picks you up, crunches you, and drops you.
* BossSubtitles: "Experimental Weapon" in ''Star Fox 64 3D''.
* DubNameChange: From "Benjamin" in Japan.
* ExtraOreDinary: Its head drops iron rods in your path. Also, the iron rods explode.
* FlunkyBoss: There are plenty of regular enemies to be shot down while fighting it, and you'll have to assist your wingmen at least once if you take it on, as Peppy gets in trouble as soon as you pass the track switcher.
* ShoutOut: To the Shakespearean play ''{{Macbeth}}''.
* TimeLimitBoss: There's no countdown clock and the only thing to suggest that this is the case is a comment Peppy made long before the boss fight started ("Don't let 'em get to the supply depot!"), but if you take too long, the conductor will say "You're too slow, time to end this!" and Mechbeth will ram into you for a OneHitKO.
* WaveMotionGun: Its wings fire beams.

!'''Copperhead Missiles'''
-> '''ROB 64:''' "Missile approaching. [[TimeLimitBoss Distance 50.]]"

After the Great Fox stalls out in Sector Z, six of these drop out of warp to attempt to attack it. Defending the Great Fox from them determines which way you'll take to Venom.

* BossSubtitles: "Interplanetary Cruise Missiles" in ''Star Fox 64 3D''.
* DubNameChange: From "Man Drill" in Japan.
* TimeLimitBoss: Each wave must be destroyed before they reach the Great Fox, or else the mission will end prematurely and you'll be locked out of Area 6 (unless you retry).
* WolfPackBoss: They come at you in waves -- first one, then two, then three.

!'''Bolse Core'''

The boss of the Bolse Defense Outpost is none other than the satellite ''itself''. After shooting the force field generators, the core appears alongside waves of Bolse fighters (and if you didn't take them down on Fichina, Star Wolf shows up shortly into the battle to make your life even more miserable). Luckily, it's a point-rich target with no visible means of defending itself...

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The eight very visible weak points.
* BattleshipRaid: Eight panels worth up to 11 points apiece and six force field generators worth 4 points apiece, that's 112 points right there. Add in Star Wolf, and you can theoretically get 156 points without destroying a single bogey -- enough to meet the medal score of 150. (Of course, trying to destroy Star Wolf as well will likely slow you down enough that you won't get the full 11 points for all eight core panels.)
* BossSubtitles: "Fusion Reactor" in ''Star Fox 64 3D''.
* {{Expy}}: Of the Atomic Bases.
* FrickinLaserBeams: ...no means that are visible ''at first'', that is. Then you destroy the first of the eight core panels, and lasers start spewing out of it. The closer you are to destroying it, the more laser beams there will be.

!'''Gorgon'''
-> '''Venomian commander:''' "These guys are crazy! Dang! DEPLOY IT NOW!"

After [[NoNameGiven the commander]] and Caiman repeatedly fail to stop Star Fox from progressing further into Area 6, the commander [[MookHorrorShow panickedly]] orders that the Gorgon be deployed. It possesses an advanced Dimension Transport System and was designed to destroy ''planets''.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: It's the circle in the middle, but it's guarded by a very potent shield that can only be destroyed by getting it to open up three times and shooting three energy tentacles, which, except for the very beginning, requires precisely shooting three solid tentacles and dodging a special attack.
* BossSubtitles: "Ultimate Space Weapon" in ''Star Fox 64 3D''.
%%* CombatTentacles
* DubNameChange: From "Death Ball" in Japan.
* {{Expy}}:
** Of the Great Commander in that it's the ultimate weapon in Andross's army. While it's probably a coincidence, both have obvious weak points that are ridiculously hard to damage.
** Also Phantron, who fulfills the Great Commander's role in Path 1. Gorgon's ability to vanish in and out of existence is reminiscent of Phantron's illusionary abilities.
* GodzillaThreshold: The unnamed commander freaks out so much at how easily the Star Fox team tears up the Venomian forces that he's left with deploying a [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill planet-destroying superweapon]].
* PuzzleBoss: Shooting the tentacles doesn't damage it. If you don't figure it out right away, Peppy will give you a hint. There's also a second puzzle involved in getting the maximum score, because the timing on it is brutally unforgiving.
* WaveMotionGun: With a surprising amount of mobility, though you can ''sometimes'' avoid it just by cowering in the corner of the screen.

!'''Golemech'''

Sub-boss of Venom's "Easy" route. May or may not be one of Andross's creations.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Interestingly, each part of its body except for the head is a separate weak point. When you destroy them all to reveal the mechanical parts, the head will become vulnerable. After destroying the head, the surprisingly resilient body will become active again so you can destroy it for good.
* BossSubtitles: "Mysterious Giant {{Golem}}" in ''Star Fox 64 3D''.
* DishingOutDirt: Seemingly made largely out of stone and can manipulate the stone walls of the temple in which he resides.
* DubNameChange: From "Bam Bam" in Japan.
* GetBackHereBoss: Never directly attacks you, instead running away while leaving obstacles in your way.
* LostSuperweapon: Maybe, though if it was something that Andross found on Venom, he probably gave it some modifications anyway the way he did with Goras.

[[folder:Other Bosses Debuting in Adventures]]
!'''Galdon'''

The boss of [=DarkIce=] Mines, and the monster holding the first [=SpellStone=]. It's a giant, tall dinosaur that attacks with green fluids. Fox and Tricky reach its lair after exploring the volcanic prison of the Mines, and note that it's frozen. As soon as Tricky uses his Flame ability to melt its body, it recovers its consciousness and swallows the [=SpellStone=] to prevent the intruders from taking it away.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The tail, then the internal organs (where the Spellstone lies after Galdon swallows it) while Fox is inside its body, then the chest and finally the internal organs again.
* GroundPound: Galdon can pound its tail while Fox tries to inflict damage upon it (hence why it's recommended to attack it from a distance with the Fire Blast).
* HumanPopsicle: Fox and Tricky find it frozen in ice prior to the battle.
* JustEatHim: Galdon swallows Fox twice during the battle. But this turns out against it because Fox starts attacking it from the inside.
* MightyRoar: Does it frequently between the attacks periods. It's during those instants that Fox can focus on attacking its weak parts.
* SuperSpit: During the second phase of the battle, Galdon starts spitting fluids towards Fox and Tricky.

!'''[=SharpClaw=] Riders'''

Though Fox encounters two such riders at the start of the game in the summit part of [=SnowHorn=] Wastes, the three he pursues in [=CloudRunner=] Fortress serve as a collective WolfpackBoss, with their leader being entrusted the second [=SpellStone=] by General Scales when the latter wants to keep Fox distracted so he can escape out of the fortress.

* RubberBandAI: If Fox manages to get ahead of the third- or second-place [=SharpClaw=] without killing it, it will rapidly increase its speed until it gets ahead of Fox. This ensures that ''all three'' [=SharpClaws=] have to be taken down to win, not just the one in first place (the one having the [=SpellStone=]).
* TimeLimitBoss: Unlike the other motorbike sequences, in this one the vehicle Fox drives has a finite amount of fuel, so he needs to take down all three riders before the fuel runs out.
* WolfpackBoss: Three [=SharpClaws=] that are trying to escape from Fox.

!'''King [=RedEye=]'''

The boss of Walled City, King [=RedEye=] is a gigantic TyrannosaurusRex that has the third [=SpellStone=] attached to its forehead. Fox confronts it after opening the subterranean chamber of the sacred central pyramid where the King [=EarthWalker=] (Tricky's father) was imprisoned.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The face, but it can only be harmed after stunning it with a large electric trap while it approaches Fox. And given the big size of the head, it's only weak against explosive barrels.
* BossArenaIdiocy: The King is too large for Fox to inflict it direct damage, but it's still defeatable because the chamber where it's lurking has several electrical devices installed in the passageways, and in the corners there are small caches holding explosive barrels. Fox can stand on a floor button for a couple seconds to load the electric trap and stun the boss with the right timing. Of course, as the battle progresses the King will walk faster, so the required timing will be more strict.
* KingMook: Of the [=RedEye=] enemies, true to its name.
* NotQuiteDead: After four hits in the face, the King seems to have died. Fox then proceeds to use Krystal's Staff to remove the [=SpellStone=] from its forehead. But as Fox seizes it after it falls and slips through the floor, the King suddenly moves its head to try to eat Fox. Luckily, the latter reacts and does an acrobatic jump to dodge the attack and then impale the Staff onto the monster's cranium as the finishing blow.
* TyrannosaurusRex: All [=RedEyes=] are modeled after the famous T-Rex, and the King is no exception (though its skin is greener).

!'''Drakor'''

The boss of Dragon Rock, and the usurper of the fourth and final [=SpellStone=]. After Fox rescues the imprisoned dinosaurs and (with the help of one of them) destroys the electric towers that protect the core column at the center of Dragon Rock, he manages to access the underground foundry where Drakor is awaiting him. Drakor is a humanoid dinosaur like General Scales, but has a crimson skin and is capable to fly thanks to his wings.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The chest. Since Fox is always at a distance away from him during the battle, despite both moving through the foundry (since Fox can't fly, he's standing onto a moving platform), he has to shoot him with the Fire Blast attack of the staff.
* BattleThemeMusic: Drakor borrows the theme heard during an earlier segment of the game when Fox has to help the [=ThornTails=] from a plague of bats in the Hollow.
* GreaterScopeVillain: Not in the final game, but he would have had a role as the one using General Scale in ''Dinosaur Planet''.
* FrickinLaserBeams: He shoots blue-colored ones during the battle, though it appears as if he was literally dropping them by (due to the constant motion he and Fox do).
* HumanoidAbomination: When Fox is piloting towards Dragon Rock for the first time, Slippy warns him that Scales is planning to turn the imprisoned dinosaurs into mutant soldiers, and that one of them might already have completed the transformation phase. That unlucky dinosaur is shown to be Drakor, and has earned a much more sinister appearance than even that of General Scales himself.
* MarathonBoss: Its HP is the second-largest among the bosses of the game, only surpassed by the FinalBoss.
* ShockAndAwe: Whenever he flies through the narrow segments of the foundry, he drops floating electric mines Fox has to destroy with the Fire Blast before he gets too close to them.
