Vulcain is a bio-weapon that Andross created in Star Fox 64 and Star Fox 64 3D. This is one of two bio-weapons that Andross created in the games(the other being Bacoon of Aquas) and the Star Fox Team will encounter Vulcain at the end of the Solar level.

[edit] Tactics

[edit] Phase 1

In Vulcain's first phase, your target will be its arms. You must be careful of Vulcain slashing at you with both arms. It will slash vertically with the arm to your right while it will slash horizontally with the arm to your left. There will also be boulders that you can break with your laser fire that will give out silver rings, gold rings, and Smart Bombs. Upon destroying Vulcain's arms, it will enter the 2nd phase.

[edit] Phase 2

After taking out both of its arms, Vulcain will gain two new attack types now that it can't use its arms. It's first attack will involve it rising out of the magma plasma and spinning around in front of Fox's Arwing while spewing it multiple small fireballs out of its shoulders. These are difficult to dodge, but doing a Barrel Roll or two can help somewhat. Vulcain's other new attack will have it dive into the hot gas while flaming boulders are hurled in the player's direction as a result of the dive. In the second phase, you want to aim for Vulcain's head area to take it out. Upon defeating Vulcain, the Star Fox Team will move on to Macbeth.
