Overview

Fox McCloud is the starring character of the Star Fox series of video games. He is a anthropomorphic fox, and is typically the character directly controlled by the player. Fox has appeared in every Star Fox game to date.

Fox is the leader of the Star Fox team, taking over the role from his father James after his presumed death. He is extremely capable piloting any number of vehicles given to him, as well as expert handling of various firearms, including a laser blaster. Fox has also proven himself adept at close combat with a staff-like weapon during his journey in Star Fox Adventures.

Fox is the central character who pilots an Arwing through numerous dangerous missions before the final battle at Venom.

Star Fox 64

Fox's father, James, was killed at the hands of Andross. When Andross attacks the Lylat System Fox takes the Star Fox team into battle, as ordered by General pepper.

Fox is the main character who pilots up to three different vehicles through various planets, leading to the final battle at Venom.

Star Fox Adventures

The team are sent to investigate a place called Sauria by General Pepper. Fox heads down to the planet surface without his team members for this adventure. Unlike other entries in the series, Fox only uses his Arwing when moving to areas he can't reach on foot. Otherwise Fox explores on foot.

Not allowed to bring his blaster, Fox's talents come in the form of staff attacks and magic strikes.

Star Fox Assault

Fox leads the team in repelling an assault by Andrew, Andross' nephew. During the battle against Andrew a Aparoid destroys his ship. Fox destroys the Aparoid and recovers a core memory that leads to discovering their enemy. Fox then leads the charge against this new enemy.

Star Fox Command

Team Star Fox has been disbanded, so Fox is initially flying solo when a new threat called the Anglar rise from Venom to destroy the Lylat System. Fox reunites the team to take on this new threat.

Super Smash Bros.

Fox appears as a playable character in this game. Fox is a fast character who works best racking up fast attacks on his opponents. Special techniques includes firing his blaster, projecting a reflector shield and a recovery move that envelopes Fox in fire and shoots him a short distance.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Fox returned as a playable fighter in this game. Fox is lighter in this version, although he also falls faster than before. He retains all his special abilities from the last game, but also gains a new special - the Fox Illusion that is a quick dash attack that shoots Fox sideways.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Fox continues his appearances in Brawl. He still has the same abilities and basic character structure as before, but now also gains a Final Smash. Upon breaking open a smash ball Fox can summon the Landmaster tank onto the battle, making use of its various abilities against his opponents for a short period of time.
