Character description

Fox made his appearance in Star Fox for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1993. The leader of the Star Fox team, Fox led his team through the Lylat System to save the galaxy from the evil Andross. The game was a huge hit and has led to several sequels.

Though the sequel to Star Fox was canceled (when the game was nearly finished), Fox would return in the Nintendo 64 smash hit Star Fox 64 which revealed some key details about Fox's past in this 'updated' Star Fox. Fox's father, James McCloud, who was renowned as one of the greatest pilots of his time, was the leader of the original Star Fox team. Upon investigating the planet Venom, James was presumed killed by Andross. Seeking to avenge his father, Fox formed a new Star Fox team which consisted of his teammates Falco Lombardi, Peppy Hare (who was a member of the original team), and Slippy Toad. At the end of Star Fox 64, Fox independently fought and killed Andross at the end of the adventure.

After this, Fox would be featured in his first fighting game in the original Super Smash Bros. and has appeared in every installment of the series since.

Fox would then be featured again in Star Fox Adventures with a new starfox member, Krystal. Which was a departure from the original Star Fox games as it was more of an action/adventure game, which saw Fox rescuing Dinosaur Planet from (unknown at the time) Andross who was seeking to revive himself after the Star Fox team became a pale shadow of its former self. After this, Fox would return in Star Fox Assault, which saw a reinvigorated Star Fox team saving the galaxy from a new threat called the Aparoids. A year later, Fox would return in Star Fox Command.

As a playable character

Main Article: Fox (SSB)

Fox appears in the original Super Smash Bros. as one of the starting eight playable characters. He is based off his appearance in Star Fox 64. Fox is a weak, but fast character. His Neutral B move is the Blaster which sends one powerful energy beam at his opponents. His Up B is the Fire Fox which envelops Fox in flames and sends him flying in any direction. His Down B is the Reflector, which serves as both an offensive and defensive move (it reflects any projectiles that come in contact with it). Fox is 2nd best in this smash game with great matchups.

In-game description:

Following his dead father's footsteps as the young leader of the Star Fox Team, Fox McCloud's piloting of the super-high-performance combat ship ARWING for the Lylatian System is still fresh in our memories. His one weakness may be his difficulty earning the trust of his teammates.
Works:


In Single-player

In the game's single-player mode, Fox is fought on the third stage, the battle being on his "home stage", Sector Z.

Fox, as he appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Fox returns in Super Smash Bros. Melee, retaining his role as a starting playable character. He is based off of his appearance in Star Fox 64. His moveset has not changed much, though his blaster has changed. The blaster will not cause his enemies to flinch, but he can now rapid-fire his blaster without having to recharge it. His new Smash B move is the Fox Illusion which causes Fox to rush ahead in a blur and can be used as a recovery move.

In Single-player

In Melee's Adventure Game, Fox is fought on the Corneria stage. After he is beaten, the player will then have to battle Fox again, this time with back-up from his wingmen. However, if Fox is beaten quickly and has unlocked Falco, the player will battle Falco instead of Fox.

Fox is featured in the following Event Matches:

Trophies

By tradition, Fox as a playable character is featured on its personal 3 trophies. Its normal trophy is acquired by beating the Classic mode with Fox on any difficulty, and its Smash Red and Smash Blue trophies are acquired the same way by beating the Adventure and All-Star modes, respectively.

His Classic mode trophy reads:

Fox is a starting playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. His appearance this time is a mix between his Star Fox Assault and Star Fox Command appearances, but his fur has the color scheme from Star Fox 64. It is also the first Smash Bros game where Fox's eyes are their proper color (green). His special moves are unchanged. His Final Smash summons the Landmaster Tank. Fox gets in and the player directly controls the tank to hover, fire shots, "do a barrel roll", and move. Other characters can actually stand on top of the tank, though it might be wiser to hide.

Trophy Info

The leader of the commando unit for hire known as Star Fox. He uses both the team's mother ship, the Great Fox, and his personal Arwing fighter to challenge the evil scientist Andross. He made his name as an ace pilot but has lately shown himself also to be an adventurer with a knack for hand-to-hand combat.
