Andross, known in Japan as Andorf (アンドルフ Andorufu?), is the foremost villain in the Star Fox series. He appears as two separate trophies in Super Smash Bros. Melee and an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
In Super Smash Bros. Melee
Andross makes two separate appearances as trophies, one being the only trophy in the game that is classified as "rare":
Star Fox's archenemy. Whether it's a metallic manifestation of Andross or just a hologram is unknown, but from its outward appearance, it's safe to assume that it's not the fiend's true form. Andross occasionally sucks matter in and then violently exhales, sending out a cloud of metal tiles. Its eyes are its weak points.
(Star Fox, 03/93)
This incarnation of Andross was so big as to be ridiculous, but it at least appeared to be a living being. Andross was once a brilliant scientist, but was banished from the galaxy for his dangerous experiments. From the planet Venom, he readied his troops and directed his sword of vengeance toward the Lylat System.
(Star Fox 64, 06/97)
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the original SNES version of Andross appears as an Assist Trophy, and as thus, a collectible trophy.
As an Assist Trophy
When Andross appears out of an assist trophy, he floats up off the screen and flies towards the back of the stage and spits polygon panels out of his mouth. Characters hit by the panels will take around 12 damage, while the tiles go right through the one who summoned him. Andross permanently appears during the event match Shadow of Andross, making it more difficult for the human players as Fox and Falco to KO Wolf.
As a trophy
A brilliant scientist formerly employed by the Cornerian Army. He took his research too far, and the disastrous results labeled him a Level 1 offender, resulting in his banishment to the nearby planet Venom. After building a base and declaring himself emperor, he swore he would rule the Lylat system. Thanks to Team Star Fox's heroism, the madman has yet to achieve this.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U
Andross appears again in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as an assist trophy.
A gifted scientist who worked for the Cornerian Defense Force. Banished to the planet Venom for his extreme research methods, he attacked the Lylat System to exact revenge but was defeated by Star Fox. When summoned, he will aid you in battle by spewing polygon slabs from his mouth.
Andross (True Form)
The true final boss of Star Fox 64, Andross has turned himself into a bioweapon. His face and hands have exploded, revealing a giant brain with eyes that move independently and fire laser beams. When he goes down, he'll self-destruct and try to take Fox with him!
