    Vixy Reinard
Fox's mother from 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.
  • Animal Theme Naming: Her first name "Vixy" alludes to "vixen", which is a term for a female fox. Also Species Surname, see below.
  • Canon Foreigner: Vixy has made no appearance, nor received any mention any of the games. That said, Fox is an orphan, meaning that he obviously had a mother at some point, and her character is one that can easily fit in continuity.
  • Death by Origin Story: She was already dead years before the events of the comic.
  • External Combustion: She was killed by a car bomb.
  • Hartman Hips: Given that Fara is 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.
  • Missing Mom: She's dead in the comics and simply unmentioned everywhere else.
  • Murder by Mistake: Andross planted a car bomb intended for Fox's father. Unfortunately, Vixy used his car to get to work on that day, and she was killed when it automatically went off.
  • Posthumous Character: Died years ago accidentally as Andross was trying to kill Fox Senior.
  • Punny Name: Vixy's name comes from "Vixen", which is the correct 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 Middle Ages 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 is called Fox in the SNES continuity.
  • Species Surname: Her last name "Reinard" is close to "renard", the French word for fox.

How well does it match the trope?
