[[folder:Star Fox]]
!The team of heroes after whom the series is named. Most of its members were originally trained at the [[RedShirtArmy Cornerian Academy]], but the team itself are privately-run paramilitary mercenaries.

The team roster has featured the following changes:
** The original (unplayable) team, as told in the ''Star Fox 64'' backstory, was made up of James [=McCloud=], Peppy Hare, and Pigma Dengar. In an event of sabotage, James was lost and Pigma betrayed the team and defected to Andross.
** The second incarnation of the team was led by James's son Fox [=McCloud=], and featured Falco Lombardi, Peppy Hare, and Slippy Toad. ROB 64 served as the robot operator of the Great Fox.
** Peppy retired from active pilot duty after ''VideoGame/StarFox64'', but remained on the Great Fox as backup.
** Falco left the team in ''FarewellBelovedFalco'' and Slippy began devoting more of his time to his mechanics and inventing soon after, leaving Fox as the only member of the team on active duty until ''Adventures''.
** Krystal joined in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]''. Tricky is counted as an honorary member, but never leaves Sauria to join the Great Fox, instead staying to uphold his royal duties. Falco rejoined at the end of ''Adventures''.
** Peppy replaced Pepper as General of the Corneria Defense Force after ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', Slippy focused on his mechanical 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).
** ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'' seems to return the team to its pre-''Command'' roster of Fox, Falco, Slippy, Krystal, Peppy and ROB.
** In a possible future, the team is made up of Marcus (Fox and Krystal's son), Falco Lombardi, Peppy's granddaughter, and Slippy's son.
* AcePilot: All of them, although Falco is often specifically referred to as the Ace.
* {{Badass}}: The greatest mercenary team in the galaxy.
* {{Badbutt}}: These games are still family friendly.
* 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 team is doing that on the Corneria level, and a couple other levels too.
* BigNo: They shout this whenever Fox loses a life (except when Fox is flying solo, he just screams posthumously).
* 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 Cornerian Army.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: At least some of the team wears the team's trademark neck scarf in assorted colors, in every game of the franchise except ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
* StopHelpingMe: InUniverse; if Fox shoots a target that one of his teammates was after, said teammate will chew him out for {{Kill Steal}}ing.
* TheTeam / ColorCodedCharacters
** TheLeader: [[JackOfAllStats Fox]] - Yellow
** TheLancer: [[FragileSpeedster Falco]] - Blue
** TheSmartGuy: [[MightyGlacier Slippy]] - Green
** TokenAdult and later MissionControl: [[JackOfAllStats Peppy]] - Red
** TheChick: [[MagicKnight Kry]][[BarrierWarrior stal]] - Purple

''[-Fokkusu Makuraudo-]''


->'''Voices (Japanese):''' Shinobu Satouchi (''VideoGame/StarFox64'', ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', ''Super Smash Bros Melee'')\\
Creator/KenjiNojima (''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'', ''Super Smash Bros Brawl'')\\
Takashi Ohara (''Star Fox 64 3D'')

Steve Malpass (''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', ''Super Smash Bros Melee'')\\
Jim Walker (''Star Fox Assault'', ''Super Smash Bros Brawl'')

Fox is the main character of all of the ''Star Fox'' games and the leader of the Star Fox team. He used to butt heads with Falco quite a bit, but tensions seem to have died down in later games, and they are close friends and merely friendly rivals. His true rival and WorthyOpponent is Wolf O'Donnell, while his [[{{Archenemy}} nemesis]] is Andross.
* 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=]. Doubly so for his son, Marcus, in Ending 2 of ''Command''.
* ArtShift: Does Fox have [[UsefulNotes/GreenIsBlue blue or green]] eyes? That depends on what game you're looking at. They appear to have settled on green, but interestingly, in an early promo art for ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', they appeared to be ''[[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/starfox/images/0/0c/Foxblaster.jpg both]]''.
* BattleCouple: Fara flies with him through the [[ContinuityReboot first]] Lylat Wars, while Krystal accompanies him for the ground-based missions on Sauria and the aparoid homeworld during ''Assault''.
* BerserkButton:
** In the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 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 [[VideoGame/StarFox1 the comic]].
* BigNo: When Fox is shot down, one of his teammates invokes this.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: His dad was killed by Andross ([[NeverFoundTheBody most likely]]). And one of the old Nintendo Power comics reveals Andross (accidentally) killed his mother as well. According to [[VideoGame/StarFox1 the original]], his dad is [[spoiler:lost in the Black Hole because of Andross.]]
* CoolOldGuy: Fox in one of the endings in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', in which [[spoiler:he's seen sporting sunglasses like his father and a goatee.]]
* CoolShades: In Expert mode in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''.
** Also in one of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'''s endings, featuring him with Krystal and their son, Marcus.
* CunningLikeAFox
* 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 Sauria.[[/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.
* DrowningMySorrows: One of ''Command'''s endings shows him doing this should Krystal leave him and choose to join Star Wolf.
* 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.
* [[ADogNamedDog A Fox Named Fox]]
* 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 renamed James, Fox's father was named 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
%%* NameMcAdjective
%%* NiceGuy
* 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: With Krystal, starting with the end of ''Adventures''. The relationship is on full display in ''Assault'', though they break up at the beginning of ''Command'' because [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies Fox is worried for Krystal's safety]]. Depending on the ending, they can marry and have a child, or stay permanently broken up. Happens also with Fara Phoenix in the comics.
* ParentalAbandonment: Fox's parents, James and Vixy, are both gone. Vixy is dead, and James is a disembodied voice and occasional SpaceWhale.
* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: He has to do this about every other game.
* RealMenWearPink: In the Super NES games, Fox's pilot scarf was bright pink. It was changed to red in ''[[ContinuityReboot Star Fox 64]]''.
* RescueRomance: His relationships with ''both'' of his official love interests began by him saving their lives.
* [[SayMyName Scream My Name]]: In the Japanese versions, his team members will do this if Fox is killed (these are replaced with a BigNo in the English version). In the English version, the only instances of this trope being applied towards Fox is when Slippy is swatted towards Titania by Spyborg, Slippy just before the battle against Goras, and by his team members when Fox is going to "go it alone" against Andross inside his base (both paths), and the last part only if his teammates aren't undergoing repairs of their Arwings. Fox himself also used the trope twice: First when Slippy was knocked away to Titania, and the second when Fox finds Slippy in Gora's claw (before it awakens).
* 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.
** And it's not like he ever ''doesn't'' bill General Pepper for Star Fox's services. In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'', he spends a lot of time complaining that he's not getting paid nearly ''enough'' for what he's doing. What exactly is the game in which Fox seems to have anything other than mercenary purposes? He definitely seems to be about the cash, even if he's, y'know, nice about it.
* 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 even though 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[=/=]BrownEyes[=/=]GreenEyes[=/=]UsefulNotes/GreenIsBlue: 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/SuperSmashBros Melee''. Since ''[[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'''\\
''[-Faruko Ranbarudi-]''

Dex Manley (''Super Smash Bros Brawl'')\\
Mark Lund (''Star Fox 64 3D'')

Falco is something of a loose cannon for the Star Fox team. He doesn't play well with others, and seems to only go along with the team for financial reasons, though deep down he realizes what is usually 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 ''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, he is [[http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/29183/star-fox-the-original-design/ a pheasant]], which do have such garish head colours.
* {{Badass}}
* {{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 games or its comics, or in ''VideoGame/StarFox64'', ''FarewellBelovedFalco'', or ''VideoGame/StarFoxCommand''. It really [[ArtShift depends on the artist]].
* BrooklynRage: He's got the accent, 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 Kat in the manga "Farewell Beloved Falco", he replies with a smug "I fly solo babe". The line merely establishes he doesn't want romance, but it has nonetheless sparked much controversy on whether he's [[SorryImGay gay]] or {{asexual|ity}}.
* BackForTheFinale: Comes back at the end of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]''.
* CharacterDevelopment: His relationship with Fox improves considerably from ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' to ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
* 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, playing mentor to [[spoiler:Fox's son Marcus, just as Peppy was Fox's mentor. And like Fox above, Falco wears awesome sunglasses.]]
* DeadpanSnarker
-->"See my ship?? Does it ''look'' okay to you??"
* FakeDefector: Averted in ''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), the Hot Rodders, 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 {{Super Smash Bros}}. series - Falco typically has low health and/or defence, 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 the lowest health.
* 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.
** The [[AllThereInTheManual instruction manual]] for ''Assault'' even states that he considers the team his family.
* TheLancer
* {{Mondegreen}}: In the first game, he speaks in gibberish...or is it "Bud we Jammin" or "Baba we Jammin"?
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: In the SNES game, Falco was officially 28 years old. In the ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' ContinuityReboot, he was 19 years old. He aged normally in the sequels of ''64''. Excluding Peppy (and probably ROB), he's currently the oldest member of the team.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Particularly in [[VideoGame/StarFox1 the comic]], Falco seems ever-concerned with opportunities to get rich. This is particularly annoying to [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules Fox]].
* ShoutOut[=/=]BlindIdiotTranslation: Originally named after Carlo Rambaldi, an Italian special effects artist who worked on the films ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'' and ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial''. "Lombardi" was a mistranslation. Japan media for ''VideoGame/StarFox1'' romanized the name as "Lambardi", before "Lombardi" was settled upon in localization.
* 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 every comic thus far, including the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 Nintendo Power comics]] and ''FarewellBelovedFalco''. Whether Falco has teeth or not seems to [[DependingOnTheArtist depend on the artist]] more than comics vs. games.
* TroubledButCute
* {{Tsundere}}: Especially in the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 original comic]]. Falco is deeply loving toward Fox, 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]]''.

Peppy is the last remaining member of the original Star Fox team, and was a good friend of James [=McCloud=]. He acts as young Fox's mentor in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' and as a senior member of the team in later games. By ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', he has left the team and become a general in the Cornerian Army.
* TenMinuteRetirement: It doesn't take much to convince him to get back in the cockpit.
** Until ''FarewellBelovedFalco'', when suddenly a 45-year old man insists he's "too old" to pilot the Landmaster, and insists that [[RecycledScript Slippy 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.
* BewareTheNiceOnes
* BigBrotherMentor: Like this to Fox in the Super NES canon before the ContinuityReboot.
* 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
* DoABarrelRoll: ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' is the TropeNamer, and it was one of Peppy's signature phrases.
* HappilyMarried: From what little is gathered of it, he used to be this with Vivian, before she died.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice / DisneyDeath: In ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'', Peppy ends up sacrificing the Great Fox, and himself in the process, by ramming the Great Fox (which was gradually being aparoidized 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.
* TheObiWan
* 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.
* SoapOperaRapidAgingSyndrome: In the SNES game, Peppy is officially 36 years old. He was friends with Fox's father, but Peppy himself was only 11 years older than 25-year old Fox and more like a CoolBigBro. In the ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' ContinuityReboot, Peppy was made 41 years old, a full generation older than [[NotAllowedToGrowUp 18-year old Fox]], and was rewritten more as a ParentalSubstitute to orphaned Fox. Then, in the sequels to ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'', when everyone was allowed to age normally, Peppy started to really show his age, becoming quite old-looking by ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
* SoleSurvivor: He's the only member of the original Star Fox team who's known to still be alive.
* SpeciesSurname
* 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.
** Although when he learned the reason why Fox got into the dogfight with Falco in the first place, he became disturbed.
* YouRemindMeOfX: Fox reminds him of James.

!'''Slippy Toad'''\\
''[-Surippī Tōdo-]''


->'''Voices (Japanese):''' Kyoko Tonguu (All games)

->'''Voices (English):''' Lyssa Browne (''VideoGame/StarFox64'', ''Star Fox 64 3D'')\\

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

Slippy is the youngest member of the Star Fox team (months younger than Fox), and the one most likely to get into trouble. He prefers mechanical work to actual flying, as his father is the head of the Cornerian government's R&D department.
* 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).
** The tasty part could be a reference to the aparoids being insect-like aliens, and Slippy being a Frog.
* 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 (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 SNES games, 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 [[VideoGame/StarFox1 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]]).
** Then in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' (after the ContinuityReboot), after being shot down towards [[RecycledScript Titania]] and then nearly in the jaws of Goras. He needs to be rescued by Fox.
** And then in ''FarewellBelovedFalco'', Slippy is piloting the Landmaster on Titania, and recalls how he was kidnapped there before [[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.
** ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' is the only game (or work in general, for that matter) where he ''doesn't'' get kidnapped (or shot down in the case of ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'', shot down and nearly eaten, or in the case of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', brainwashed).
* 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.
%%* InnocentBlueEyes
%%* KidAppealCharacter
* 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.
* MissingMom: Who ''is'' Slippy's mom? Out of all the major Star Fox characters whose parents have been shown, Slippy is the only one who has been depicted with no mother whatsoever.

* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Averted. He gets visibly older in between the games, and gets married at the end of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''. Also, unlike Fox, Falco and Peppy, Slippy's age doesn't radically change between the SNES version (where he was 19 years old) and the ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' ContinuityReboot, which made him 18 and only slightly younger than Fox.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Despite being slightly younger than Fox, he looks and sounds like a kid.
* PlayfulHacker: His hacking skills are the main reason to keep him alive. Otherwise, you can't see enemy health gauges.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter
* TheSmartGuy
* SpeciesSurname: Though he looks more like a frog than a toad.
* [[UtilityBelt Utility Necklace]]: Before ''[[ContinuityReboot Star Fox 64]]'', Slippy always wore a trademark bead necklace that had secret uses, including as [[InstantSedation sleeping gas]] and [[MadeOfExplodium explosives]].
* VocalEvolution: Japanese vocals only: His voice is far less feminine now than it was in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''.

Hirohiko Kakegawa (''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'')

->'''Voices (English):''' Mike West (''Star Fox 64'')\\
Jim Walker (''Star Fox Assault'')

Fox's father and the leader of the original Star Fox team. He was betrayed by Pigma and killed by Andross. [[spoiler:Or was he?]]

* AcePilot
* AdaptationDyeJob: Depicted as looking exactly like Fox with sunglasses in later games, even though close examination of images of him in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' indicate he had a darker shade of fur than his son.
* CoolShades
* DisappearedDad: Although he tends to show up as a ghost/hallucination in a few games, or is he still alive?
** According to the Nintendo Power comic, he was at ground zero of the sabotage that created the Black Hole, but tells Fox (while riding in on a SpaceWhale) that he's become part of a different parallel dimension.
* 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.
* NeverFoundTheBody: In the games, but in early comics, he has become a transdimensional SpaceWhale!
* {{Retcon}}: Before ''Star Fox 64'', James's name in supplemental sources was Fox [=McCloud=] Sr.
* SecretCharacter: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
* SpaceWhale: In the comic, this is the only way he can reappear from his dimensional exile. The whale also appears for a moment in Sector Y of the original ''[[VideoGame/StarFox1 Star Fox]]'' (if you're lucky), but it's unconfirmed if it is actually him in this version.
* SpiritAdvisor
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Fox is very similar in appearance to his father; it seems his signature streak of hair on his head was even inherited from James.
* SunglassesAtNight: James is never seen without them in the games.
* WhamLine: Don't ever give up, my son.

!'''Vixy Reinard'''

Fox's mother from [[VideoGame/StarFox1 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 in the post-64 continuity. 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 into both continuities, 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 Sr. 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 maiden name "Reinard" is close to "renard", the French word for fox.

The head of the Cornerian army in every ''Star Fox'' game, until he retired in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' and was replaced by Peppy. He debriefs the team before each mission. [[spoiler:In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', his ship was attacked by aparoids and assimilated. He is the boss of the Corneria stage.]]
* CoolOldGuy: ''{{Averted|Trope}}'' for the most part, not that he didn't try.
* CoolShades: In the Super NES games.
* AFatherToHisMen: Implied in his Trophy description in ''SuperSmashBrosBrawl''.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
* LastNameBasis: In a series where most characters are routinely referred to [[FirstNameBasis by their first names]], Pepper is a rare character who is known only by his last name. We don't even know what his first name is.
* NiceHat: Wears a CommissarCap at all times.
* PutOnABus: Becomes ill by the time of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' and has to retire (although fans suspect that his illness may have something to do with his brief possession by the Aparoids).

The main enemy of Star Fox. A maniacial scientist whose experiments nearly destroyed all of the Lylat System and because of this, was banished to Venom.
* ActuallyADoombot: The Andross you fight if you get to Venom after Bolse is a fake.
* BackFromTheDead: ''Thrice!'' The first time via cloning. Secondly by [[spoiler:attempting to become the PhysicalGod of Sauria (with draining Krystal's life-force as a backup plan). Thirdly, a hologram programmed with his personality and claiming to be Andross' "ghost" appears in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'']]. Whew!
* BadassBeard
* 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 [[VideoGame/StarFox1 original game]] and ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' [[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 with separately detached floating hands. Blowing off his skin leaves his brain and eyeballs (attached together via neural stems) still active. [[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''.
* 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 both the Super NES comic and in ''FarewellBelovedFalco''.
** In the Super NES 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 endings of ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''. Second was Shears and his {{cloning|blues}} bid. Third was [[spoiler:that little incident on Sauria, which allowed his spirit to linger and in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'' nearly resulted in him being reborn as a PhysicalGod]]. Fourth was [[spoiler:his "ghost" (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.
* DependingOnTheArtist: Andross either has gray or purple hair, depending on the game.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: The robot Andross in the easy path of ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''.
* EngineeredPublicConfession: Except not intentionally engineered. In the Super NES 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 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 in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' are biological weapons that Andross had a hand in creating. Before the events of the games, he worked with the Cornerian military in developing them (with General Pepper suspicious of his motives). In fact, the prime reason for his banishment was unleashing one on Corneria's capital city, resulting in an explosion that almost entirely destroyed it. The Anglars in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' are implied to be his creations as well.
* TheExile: It didn't take.
* FinalBoss: He takes the role in the original, the unreleased ''Star Fox 2'', ''Star Fox 64''[[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 Super NES 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.
* GiantHandsOfDoom
* HijackedByGanon: [[spoiler:Manipulating General Scales in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]''.]]
* [[HumansAreBastards Hominids Are Bastards]]
* KubrickStare
* MadScientist
* TheManBehindTheMonsters[=/=]TheChessmaster: 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 ''FarewellBelovedFalco'', a renegade Cornerian Officer named Captain Shears attempted to revive Andross via [[CloningBlues Cloning]]. 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 as a weapon.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: In the ''Nintendo Power'' comic based on the Super NES game, this was what he intended to do to James because he was in love with his wife Vixy. But it didn't go as planned, and [[MurderByMistake Vixy 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.
** Also, said polygonal face made a cameo in the climax of ''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.
* {{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]]).
* StalkerWithACrush[=/=]VillainousCrush: Heavily implied to be this for Vixy [=McCloud=], 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: His nephew Andrew is a monkey. That makes 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.
* The Emperor[=/=]EmperorScientist
* TheUnfought: Possibly in the original ''StarFox'', as according to the [[AllThereInTheManual Mission File Printout]], the giant face that Fox faces on Venom is a computer designed to oversee Venom's army in place of the emperor himself. Although, the Mission File Printout also says that the giant computer might have really been Andross.
* 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.

[[folder:Star Fox 2]]
When ''VideoGame/StarFox2'' was finally made ([[VaporWare and not released]]), Fara made no appearance, but Miyu and Fay were there instead. Since there were two of them -- both female -- it also at least partially averted TheSmurfettePrinciple. Neither they nor Fara survived the ContinuityReboot. Star Wolf made its first appearance (with Algy and without Andrew), but were heavily remodeled for ''VideoGame/StarFox64''.

* CanonDiscontinuity: As with Fara, there is hope Miyu will make a canonical appearance in the future; she ended up being rather well-liked among gamers with emulators.
* OnlyOneName: Though {{Fanon}} often calls her Miyu Lynx.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: A rare example of a lynx in fiction.

* CanonDiscontinuity
* GenkiGirl: And infectiously so.
* InnocentBlueEyes
* OnlyOneName: Though {{Fanon}} often calls her Fay Dog or Fay Spaniel.

!'''Fara Phoenix'''\\
''[-Fara Fenikkusu-]''


Fara was introduced in the comic series for the [[VideoGame/StarFox1 Super NES game]], and besides a brief {{Cameo}} in an early beta of ''[[VaporWare Star Fox 2]]'', she [[CanonDiscontinuity never made another official appearance]], and didn't appear in ''[[ContinuityReboot Star Fox 64]]'' onwards.

* ActionGirl: Though she had gotten herself in danger often, she still is quite a skilled pilot, and can handle herself in all but the most hopeless situations -- which her inner LeeroyJenkins seems to like getting her into.
* CanonDiscontinuity
* CanonForeigner: At one time almost {{averted|Trope}} this, appearing in an early demo of ''VideoGame/StarFox2''.
* DaddysGirl
* FutureSpandex: ...''Cameltoe''.
* GreenEyes
* HartmanHips
* 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 is a Fennec Fox, whilst Vixy is 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.
* {{Ojou}}
* PinkMeansFeminine: Fara's replacement AceCustom Arwing (after she LeeroyJenkins'd the first) was pink-and-white.
* 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.
%%* SatelliteLoveInterest
* TheSixthRanger: Fara was a full member of the Star Fox team in [[ComicStrip/StarFox the comic]].
* TheSmurfettePrinciple
* SpeciesSurname / PunnyName: "Phoenix" is pronounced "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fennec_fox fennecs]]".
* StaticCharacter: Even compared to the rest of the cast.

[[folder:Star Wolf]]

A team of mercenary antagonists through most of the series. They worked with Andross in ''VideoGame/StarFox64'', but took on the role of {{Anti Hero}}es and {{Worthy Opponent}}s afterwards.

The team roster:
* Led by Wolf O'Donnell, the original team included Leon Powalski, Pigma Dengar, and Andrew Oikonny. This team also featured in ''StarFox2'', but with Algy instead of Andrew (though renamed Andrew in the FanTranslation).
* Pigma was expelled because of his greed, after which Panther Caroso was taken on prior to ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''. Andrew left to avenge Andross, which led to him partially restoring the remainder of his uncle's army and starting the events of the game.
* Krystal joined just before ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' after being kicked out of 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 calling herself Kursed.
* AcePilot: All of them.
* AntiHero: They're technically criminals with bounties on their heads, but as the story goes on, they increasingly save the day.
* {{Badass}}
* {{Badbutt}}
* 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 completely amoral PsychoForHire, 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 archrivals, they're love interests for each other. Mostly one sided on Pather's side in Assault, but in some paths Krystal reciprocates in Command.
* HiredGuns
* 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.
* ThePsychoRangers: In ''Star Fox 2'' and ''Star Fox 64''. Star Wolf moved away from this in ''Star Fox Assault''.
* SpacePirate
* UnexplainedRecovery: How the 64 version of the team survived being shot down on either Venom, or both Fichina and Venom is still unexplained.
* WorthyOpponent

Jay Ward (''Super Smash Bros Brawl'')\\
Jaz Adams (''Star Fox 64 3D'')

Wolf is the leader of the Star Wolf team and perennial rival to Fox. He and Fox first met during ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' (technically ''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 heavily implied Wolf only helps Fox so he can 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.
* AntiHero
* {{Badass}}: In addition to completely changing his appearance, ''Assault'' completely changed his personality. In that game, 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 recent dubbing has a more gruff American accent.
** The British accent returns in ''Star Fox 64 3D'', sounding even more posh than the original.
* 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: Especially in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]''.
* 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.
* EyepatchOfPower: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
%%* FingerlessGloves
* GunsAkimbo: His victory pose in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''. He draws two Machine Guns from behind him and starts firing.
-->'''Wolf:''' Victory is mine!!!
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Some storylines in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' have him do this.
* HellBentForLeather: Especially in ''Assault'', where he wears a black leather jumpsuit. It helps his BadassBiker look nicely.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He has his moments. After he saves Fox's life in ''Assault'', he just can't bring himself to say "You're welcome."
-->'''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.
* JokerImmunity: Neither Wolf nor his wingmates will die if they are shot down in a dogfight.
* JustAKid: He calls Fox "pup" numerous times throughout the course of ''Assault''.
-->'''Wolf:''' "You've gotten soft, pup!" (''Mission 3'')
-->'''Wolf:''' "You're a pitiful sight, pup!" (''Mission 7'')
-->'''Wolf:''' "Point that thing at me and you better be ready to die, pup." (''Mission 7'')
-->'''Wolf:''' "Keep your advice to yourself and your eyes up front, pup." (''Mission 10'')
* LightningBruiser
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Not with him and his dad, but it's been implied on his ''Brawl'' trophy that he had a rivalry with James which led to his rivalry with Fox.
* MookPromotion: According to Wolf's ''Super Smash Bros. 4'' trophy, he fought in Andross' army as a soldier before the latter's exile.
* MythologyGag: Wolf's outfit in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]'' is a ShoutOut to his outfit in the {{Vaporware}} ''VideoGame/StarFox2'', down to the vest and the SpikesOfVillainy.
* TheObiWan: During their EnemyMine moments, Wolf gives Fox guidance several times, most notably during the end of Mission 7 in ''Assault''.
-->'''Wolf:''' "Don't hesitate! When the time comes, just act!"
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: This is why he won't let the aparoids kill Fox in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
-->'''Wolf:''' "And if anyone's gonna tan your hide, it's gonna be me."
* OperaGloves: His gloves in ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl]]'' come very close to this.
* PurpleEyes: And has the badassery to match them... er, it.
* TheRival: To Fox [=McCloud=]. The [[AllThereInTheManual manual]] of ''Assault'' states that each of them considers the other to be his "eternal rival."
* SavageWolf / NobleWolf: He begins as an enemy; a villainous wolf working for Andross. The [[AllThereInTheManual Keibunsha strategy guide]] says there's more to it than that and he kicked Pigma off his team for being a greedy jerkass.
* SecretCharacter: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' and ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl''.
* SmugSnake: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''. "You're good, but I'm ''better''!"
** {{Combat Compliment}}: If only in the Japanese version.
* SoapOperaRapidAgingSyndrome: Originally the same age as Fox in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' (18 years old); gets a six-year age bump in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', easily placing him in his early thirties at that point.
** His dialogue in ''Star Fox 2'' strongly suggests that he is much older than 18.
-->'''Wolf:''' "Brats! Time for punishment!"
* SoleSurvivor: Wolf is the only Star Wolf member who flies away after losing all of his health in ''Star Fox 2''.
* SpikesOfVillainy: He wears spiked shoulder pads.
* TheBigGuy: In ''Assault'', he is physically superior to the members of his team and even the protagonists.
* ThisCannotBe: His defeat quote on Venom is "No way! I don't believe it."

!'''Leon Powalski'''\\
''[-Reon Powarusukī-]''


->'''Voices (Japanese):''' Shinobu Satouchi (All games)

->'''Voices (English):''' Ja Green (''VideoGame/StarFox64'')\\
David Scully (''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'')\\
Jim Walker (''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'')\\
Jaz Adams (''Star Fox 64 3D'')

Leon is the insane and unpredictable assassin and member of Star Wolf. In his first appearances in ''VideoGame/StarFox2'' and in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'', 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"). Come ''Assault'', however, and he's a babbling psycopath. He plays TheRival to Falco.
* AgentPeacock
* AxCrazy
* 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?
* 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. 4 trophy describes him as Wolf's most trusted ally.
* EvilLaugh
* InformedAttribute: We've never seen him kill anyone, even though he's supposed to be 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[=/=]HaveIMentionedIAmGay: 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
* PsychoForHire
* ShoutOut: His name is a reference to Leon '''K'''owalski from the movie ''Film/BladeRunner''.
* SoftSpokenSadist: Both English and Japanese 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: Japanese vocals only: His 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.
* 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."

!'''Pigma Dengar'''\\
''[-Piguma Dengā-]''

->'''Voices (English):''' David Frederick White (''VideoGame/StarFox64'')\\
Lev Liberman (''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'')\\
Jaz Adams (''Star Fox 64 3D'')

Pigma was a member of the original Star Fox team, but betrayed James to Andross and later joined Star Wolf. He is a grotesque money-grubber, who was kicked out of Star Wolf just 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.
* 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.
* 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.
* FaceHeelTurn: In the BackStory.
* FatBastard: 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. 4'' 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}}
* 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!''
* 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 ends up aparoidized.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: According to the Keibunsha strategy guide, he manipulated Wolf to act in accordance to Andross's orders.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: His aparoid form in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
* MythologyGag: Pigma working for Andross might be a nod to the SNES continuity's comics, where Andross was a pig aficionado who was raised by robot pigs and had a robot pig sidekick called Herbert.
* PigMan: [[CaptainObvious Duh!]]
* 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]]''.
* ShoutOut: His last name is a reference to one of the bounty hunters in TheEmpireStrikesBack.
* SycophanticServant: The JP manual and his bio in the Keibunsha guide describe Pigma as worshiping Andross as the emperor.
* TheMole: According to the JP manual, he was this towards Star Fox.
* 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 was completely ''atomised'' in an explosion during ''Assault'', calling his reappearance in ''Command'' into further question. 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, unless he hadn't been completely assimilated, he more than likely would have been killed then instead. Then again, there's ''Command'''s [[CanonDiscontinuity deemed status]] in the series, as well as the fact Pigma considered Star Wolf to be true friends of his, despite the fact Wolf kicked him out (and apparently attacked him) [[EvenEvilHasStandards because they couldn't stand the greedy bastard]], and it seems easier to just consider him deceased for now.

!'''Andrew Oikonny'''\\
''[-Andoryū Oikkonī-]''

[[ContinuityReboot Originally]]\\

Yusuke Numata (''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'')

->'''Voices (English):''' Bill Johns (''Star Fox 64'')\\
John Hugill (''Star Fox Assault'')\\
Mark Lund (''Star Fox 64 3D'')

The original fourth member of Star Wolf in ''VideoGame/StarFox2'' was a primate named Algy (possibly meant to be "Algae"). Algy never appeared again, instead replaced in ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' by the also primate (but heavily redesigned) Andrew Oikonny. (The FanTranslation of ''2'', however, renamed Algy "Andrew".) ''Andrew'' is Andross's nephew, and plays TheRival to Slippy. After ''64'', he quit Star Wolf and 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
* 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 I Want My Uncle]]: 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.
* LastNameBasis: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
* ManiacMonkeys
* OverlordJr: Eh, kind of.
* PunnyName: Andrew is derived from the Greek word Andreas ("of a man").
* StarterVillain: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''.
* [[TheFriendNobodyLikes The Teammate Nobody Likes]]: His bio in the Keibunsha strategy guide says he is hated by the other Star Wolf members.
* TransformingMecha: His ship in ''Assault'' transforms into a mechanical Andross-inspired form.
* WellDoneSonGuy: He always seems to be trying to gain his uncle's favor in some form.
* [[WhiteHairBlackHeart White Fur, Black Heart]]: 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 ready to revive Andross's empire, he is shot down mid-sentence by the ''real'' BigBad of the game, an aparoid.

!'''Panther Caroso'''\\
''[-Pansā Karurosso-]''


->'''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 is an unabashed ladies man who constantly tries to hit on Krystal every chance he gets. He always carries his signature rose.
* 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 canonicity of that game's events up for debate]], but it's implied that the only real reason Krystal joined up with Star Wolf and started up a relationship with him 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, whilst Krystal's cameo appearance in ''Brawl'' was [[WordOfGod confirmed]] to be speaking sarcastically as far as her English dub went, the Japanese dub in general portrayed her as far more sincere and flattered by his 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.
* LatinLover
* PantheraAwesome
* RomanticFalseLead: Some of the optional story arcs in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' have him becoming this.
* SomethingAboutARose
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The series tends to switch the spelling of his surname between "Caroso" and "Caruso".
* ThirdPersonPerson: In the English version of ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', though this may have been a localization error.

[[folder:Since Star Fox 64]]
This was the ContinuityReboot. Some characters were dropped, renamed, or remodeled.


The robotic operator of the Great Fox. 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.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Some of his dialogue in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' as a result of his personality chip overriding his programming.

!'''Bill Grey'''\\
''[-Biru Gurei-]''

->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/DaisukeSakaguchi (Japanese), Bill Johns (English, Star Fox 64), Mark Lund (English, Star Fox 64 3D)

Fox's old buddy from flight school who stayed in the Cornerian Army while Fox went freelance. He 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]]''.

* AcePilot
* ShoutOut: His name is a reference to William Grey from ''Film/IndependenceDay''. The entire Katina sequence in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' is an extended homage to that movie.
* SouthernFriedPrivate: ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' gives him a Southern accent, even though he didn't have one in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''.
* SurferDude: Has this type of voice in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''.
* WhatTheHellHero: Whenever you shoot down one of his fighters in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]''.

!'''Katt Monroe'''\\
''[-Kyatto Monrō-]''

->'''Voiced by:''' Kyoko Tonguu (Japanese), Lyssa Browne (English)

Katt is a woman from Falco's past, when they were both members of the Hot Rodders gang. The canonical [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] {{Manga}} ''FarewellBelovedFalco'' shed some light on the mysterious nature of their relationship, revealing even more about Falco and Katt themselves.

In ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' and ''[[FarewellBelovedFalco Farewell]]'', Katt was colored pink. She reappeared as a playable character in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'', this time a grey cat.
* ActionGirl
* BareYourMidriff: Pink Katt seemed fond of dressing this way.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Invoked rather blatantly in ''[[FarewellBelovedFalco Farewell]]'', with one of the other Hot Rodders being a blue tomcat.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Before her RaceLift.
* RaceLift: Changing colors and cat breeds between ''[[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: Pink Katt ''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: Compare her appearance in [[FarewellBelovedFalco the manga]] and in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.

* TheMole: Loyal to [[TheBigBad Andross]].
* ShoutOut / {{Expy}}: Shears closely resembles General Pepper's appearance from the Super NES games, before ''[[ContinuityReboot Star Fox 64]]'' when General Pepper's appearance was slightly remodeled. Shears's name, as with Pepper's, is a also a reference to ''[[Music/TheBeatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts' Club Band]]''.
* VillainousBreakdown: As soon as it becomes apparent that Fox or Katt are going to stumble on [[spoiler:his attempts at cloning Andross]], he loses it, becoming [[AxCrazy rapier-crazy]] and hunting Fox down like a lunatic.


Katt's LoveInterest as of ''FarewellBelovedFalco'', and one of the Hot-Rodders. Though his name was not given in the {{Manga}}, his name was supposedly revealed by WordOfGod to be Cool.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Cool is the blue to Katt's pink.
* RomanticRunnerUp: Katt seems to genuinely like him and does once confirm she has romantic feelings towards him. However, it seems she's gone right back to falling for Falco.

[[folder:Star Fox Adventures]]

->'''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 her [[DoomedHometown doomed home world]] Cerinia. The fate of Cerinia is never brought up again. Then again, it could be argued that she didn't need to afterwards, anyway, 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 is 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 proven wildly popular in the West, but hasn't proven as popular in Japan. Since ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' (where Krystal was first introduced), 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 their fanbase. ''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. It is still unknown which of these endings (if any) will be {{Canon}}, so Krystal's future in the franchise is uncertain.
* BadFuture: One of the endings for ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]'' has her leave Fox and become a ruthless bounty hunter named Kursed.
* BareYourMidriff: In her first appearance, as well as her appearance as Kursed during an alternate 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. 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]].]]
* 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 Saurian and Lylatian.
* 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 as this 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 Last Of Her Kind]]: Krystal is supposedly the very last Cerinian left in the Lylat system.
* 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: Official sources list Krystal at 19 years old during ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]''; since it takes place eight years after ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'', Fox would be 26, leaving a notable seven-year age gap between them.
* MsFanservice
* NiceGirl
* NubileSavage: Her default attire from ''Adventures'', LoinCloth[[note]]there are camera angles that can peek beneath it, either she wears panties or they didn't bother rendering anything there[[/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 at the beginning of ''Command'' because [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies Fox is worried for Krystal's safety]]. Depending on the ending, they can marry and 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. She does end up marrying Fox in one possible future presented by ''Command'', however, so she presumably becomes Krystal [=McCloud=] after that.
* 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.
* ShoutOut: Krystal's imprisonment in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]'' may be similar to Zelda's in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]''.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: In the post-''VideoGame/StarFox64'' canon, 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}}
* [[ThatManIsDead That Woman Is Dead]]: Seems to be her attitude when she becomes Kursed 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).
** Even before becoming Kursed, she had hints of this in her dialogue when Fox rediscovers her among Star Wolf. Before becoming Kursed, it had more to do with her changed attitude from being gentle and sweet to bitter and spiteful than it did her persona as "Krystal".

* WomanScorned: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.

!'''Prince Tricky'''\\

Fox's partner during his trek through Sauria. He aids Fox by following a handful of commands that allow him to solve many of the puzzles on the planet. Before Fox leaves Sauria, he makes Tricky an honorary member of Star Fox, although he remains on Sauria. Later on, Fox meets up with him again, and he is now a full grown earthwalker.
* {{Expy}}: Of Tricky from ''DiddyKongRacing'', another of Rare's titles.
* [[SheIsAllGrownUp He Is All Grown Up]]: Come ''Assault'', the little guy is now the leader of the Earthwalker tribe.
* InnocentBlueEyes
* KidAppealCharacter
* PartiallyCivilizedAnimal: Whereas all of the other characters in the series are PettingZooPeople, Tricky and the other dinos on Sauria (except Sharpclaws) are this.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: That is, if you don't find him annoying.
* 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.
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures Adventures]]''.
* 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.

!'''General Scales'''\\

->'''Voiced By:''' John Silke

Head of the [=SharpClaw=] tribe of dinosaurs on Sauria, he is a warlord in the midst of conquering Sauria for his own -- and has even managed to shatter Sauria into pieces by removing its Spellstones. He is the BigBad of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures''. [[spoiler:Or Is He? He's actually being manipulated by Andross into gathering Krystal's life force and the Krazoa spirits of Sauria in a bid to make Andross a PhysicalGod.]]
* 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 [=CloudRunner=] Queen) 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.
* 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 Dinosaur Planet, he was so pissed off [[spoiler: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 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]].
* TyrannosaurusRex: A humanoid one. He also shares traits with ''Allosaurus'' as well.
* UnwittingPawn: He didn't even know who [[spoiler:Andross]] was.

[[folder:Since Star Fox Assault]]

!'''Beltino Toad'''\\
''[-Berutsīno Tōdo-]''

->'''Voiced By:''' Hirohiko Kakegawa (Japanese), Scott Burns (English)

Slippy's father and head research director for the Corneria Defense Force. He sometimes shows up in debriefing sessions in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.

* AllThereInTheManual: His first mention was in ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'''s Player's Guide, before his initial appearance in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]''
* GadgeteerGenius: Even before he appeared in a game, the above-mentioned Player's Guide for ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' referred to him and Slippy as the inventors of the Blue Marine.
* NonMammalianHair: That mustache of his...
%%* SmartPeopleWearGlasses

!'''Aparoid Queen'''

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.
* AssimilationPlot: She considers it necessary for the genetic advancement of her species.
* 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 StarFox's Franchise/StarTrek, the aparoid queen is the Borg Queen.
%%* HiveMind
%%* HiveQueen
* 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.
* 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.

[[folder:Since Star Fox Command]]

Amanda is Slippy's fiancee, and becomes a playable character in ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxCommand Command]]''.
%%* ActionGirlfriend
* BattleCouple: With Slippy on some missions.
* NonMammalMammaries: She's the first major non-mammalian female character to be depicted with breasts in the series.
* OnlyOneName: Her last name isn't given for some reason.
%%* PinkMeansFeminine
* SpeciesSurname: She starts off in the game with no surname, but considering how she's engaged to Slippy and eventually marries him, she does come around to fitting the trope at some point.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Like that ginormous bow on her head, her eyelashes, the fact she's pink, etc.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: She's a good head taller than Slippy.

!'''Dash Bowman'''\\
''[-Asshu Bouman-]''

Andross's grandson and Andrew's second cousin, who serves in the Cornerian 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's 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'''\\
''[-Rūshī Hea-]''

The daughter of Peppy and Vivian Hare, 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 pink in the promotional art and game icons, but is grey (with pink hair) in the story scenes.
* ParentalAbandonment and DaddysGirl: 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

!'''Vivian Hare'''\\

Peppy's wife and Lucy's mother. She died of illness sometime after the Lylat Wars.
* 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
* SpeciesSurname: Though unlike other characters (with the possible exception of Amanda and whomever Slippy's mother was), she presumably gained her surname by marrying Peppy.
* ThemeNaming: "Vivian" means "alive", which matches Peppy's name, which means "lively".


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, get married, and Marcus is born a few years later.
* CanonDiscontinuity: Possibly. Due to ''Command'' not having a true ending, it remains unknown whether Marcus's birth will be a definitive part of the series or not. Unlike other characters which this has happened to, however, his birth is one that has yet to take place.
* 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.

[[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 enemies on Corneria in the first game and ''64''.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The openings of its appendages, then the body.
* BossSubtitles: Originally "Advance Scout Mothership", but later Retconned to "Interplanetary Warship". "Spacecraft Carrier" in the Japanese version of the first game.
%%* DidntNeedThoseAnyway
* FlunkyBoss: The entire invasion of Corneria in the first two games was pretty much a Flunky Boss fight against it.
* MythologyGag: Its appearance in ''64''.
* {{Retcon}}: See BossSubtitles.
* WarmUpBoss: It IS the first boss in the franchise. Averted on Path 3 of the original and the Easy path in ''64''.

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

Sent by Andross to clear asteroids for various reasons in the original and ''64''.

* 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" in both games.
* DidntNeedThoseAnyway: There's a shield that flies off on both versions.
* 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.
* 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 cores of giant ships in the original. Defeating them destroys the whole ship.

* BossSubtitles: In the English version, "Planet Bomber" for the first and "Invasion Troop Carrier" for the second. In the Japanese version, "Supreme Command Ship" for the first and "Base Extension Mechanism" for the second.
* CoresAndTurretsBoss: With two layers of cores.
* 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'''

A robot sent to a Meteor in the original to defend a base.

* BossSubtitles: "Spider Shaped Machine" in the English version, "Spider Shaped Remodeled Weapon" in the Japanese version.
* 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.


Andross's defense robot in the original in case of a full-frontal attack. Has illusionary powers.

* BossSubtitles: "Special Close Orbit Robot" in the first version, "Free-Floating Space Robot" in the Japanese version.
* 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 Path One.
%%* FragileSpeedster: His default attack methods. His OneWingedAngel form ditches this.
%%* MasterOfIllusion
%%* MiniMecha
* OneHitKill: If you use a Nova Bomb on the first fight. [[spoiler:Don't move to avoid it.]]
* OneWingedAngel: When he grows legs.
* RecurringBoss: On Path One.
* ScareChord: As he goes OneWingedAngel.
* SequentialBoss: The second fight.
* VictoryFakeout: The second fight.
* YourMindMakesItReal: His illusion selves hurt.

!'''Professor Hanger'''

A robot in charge of Andross's force on Titania in the original.

* BossSubtitles: "Master Computer" in the English version, "Resource Defense Brain" in the Japanese version.
* 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 robot gathering hydrogen in Sector Y for Andross.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The hands at first.
* BossSubtitles: "Hydrogen Harvester" in the English version, "Mechanical Lifeform" in the Japanese version.
* KaizoTrap: Has one last attack for when you beat it.

!'''Metal Smasher'''

Two robots guarding the back of Venom in the original, they have control over metal.

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

!'''Galactic Rider(s)'''

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 Guard Machines", which makes the identity of the boss even more confusing.
* TheDragon: In Path Two.
%%* FlunkyBoss
* MindScrew: Just try and figure out what the boss name refers to. Is it the escape pod, the bikers...
* TheRival: Apparently, Falco used to be one of the bikers.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Literally. The manual 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.


A tank that assisted in the invasion of Corneria in the original.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: First the front of the shields, then the turrets.
* BossSubtitles: "Ground Supremacy Vehicle" in the English version, "Wide-Angle Attack Tank" in the Japanese version.
* ShieldedCoreBoss: One shield for each core. And each shield can heal its core.
* WarmUpBoss: For Path Three.

!'''Blade Barrier'''

A space station in the Asteroid Belt in the original.

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

!'''Monarch Dodora'''

A giant dinosaur enslaved by Andross in the original. [[spoiler:Later reappears in ''Command'' as one of Andross's last bioweapons.]]

* AttackItsWeakPoint: First its head or tails, then the body.
* BossSubtitles: "Primitive Dinosaur" in the English version, "Two-Headed Cyborg Dragon" in the Japanese version.
* CanonImmigrant: In ''Command''.
* {{Cyborg}}: According to its BossSubtitles in the Japanese version.
%%* FlunkyBoss
* HijackedByGanon: [[spoiler:Andross's ghost]] controls it in ''Command'', although certain dialog [[spoiler:against his grandson]] suggests it has become unruly..
* MythologyGag: In ''Command''.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Monarch Dodra in the instruction booklet and ''Command''.
* WakeUpCallBoss: This is the first boss that experienced players can call That One Boss in Path Three.

!'''Spinning Core'''

A drilling device used in the original.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: First the turrets, then some yellow thing.
* BossSubtitles: "Lightspeed Revolution" in the English version, "Lightspeed Rotation Body" in the Japanese version.
* RushBoss: It's a pretty hectic fight.

!'''Great Commander'''

A three part robot that combines into one in the original.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: The second fight has the small opening on the bottom, but the first fight has [[ThatOneBoss the much more infamous]] turrets.
* BossSubtitles: "Final Battleship" in the English version, "Combining Battleship" in the Japanese version.
%%* CombiningMecha
* TheDragon: In Path Three.
* 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'''

The 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:Other Bosses Debuting in 64]]

->"You annoying little flies."
Overly cocky monkey, piloting a mech with a very easily exploitable weakness. The boss of Corneria if you don't fulfill the requirements for the secret mission.

* AllThereInTheManual: Granga is the name of the pilot, not the mech. ''Star Fox 64 3D'' seemingly {{retcon}}s this.
* 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"
%%* 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"
* 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 4 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.

The boss of Katina. Releases waves of enemy fighters, 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"
%%* 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.

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: TropeNamer courtesy of Peppy's advice.
* BossSubtitles: "Bioweapon", 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.
* 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.

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

%%* AIIsACrapshoot
* 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''.
* {{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?"

-> '''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", same as Bacoon's.
* 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.

->"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"
* 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.

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"
%%* BreathWeapon
%%* DemBones
* {{Expy}}: 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 cats 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 cats 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...

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.

* AdaptationExpansion: Gains a new attack in ''3D''.
* 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"
* 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.
* 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"
* 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 Satellite Core'''
The boss of Bolse is none other than ''Bolse 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"
* {{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.

-> '''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"
%%* CombatTentacles
* {{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.

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 seperate 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}}"
* DishingOutDirt: Seemingly made largely out of stone and can manipulate the stone walls of the temple in which he resides.
* 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.
