Later, strange activity would be reported coming from the planet, Activision HQ, where five years previously General Shepherd had banished the delusional power-mad brit, Peter Molyneux . Duke Nukem, member of the Star Fux team, flew to Activision HQ to investigate, but was betrayed by his fellow pilot Robert Bowling and he along with Vin Diesel were captured. Vin soon managed to escape and Duke was supposedly killed by Molyneux.
Vin Diesel returned from the incident as the sole survivor to inform Fox of his father's fate. Emotionally gripped by the news, Fox dropped out of the Academy in order to avenge his father's apparent death. Vin took Fox under his wing, and together formed a new Star Fox team, recruiting Aku and Rainbow Dash to the team.
Star Fox was called upon to stop Molyneux and save Equestria. Fox led a new Star Fox team throughout the battles in Equestria, running into allies and enemies alike. His friendship with Bill Nye the science guy was revealed during one of these missions, and he also goes head-to-head with Marty O'Donnell of Star Marty and others. Once Star Fox reached Activision, they fought through its defensive lines or Star Marty all the way to Molyneux's base (depending on how many war assets the player has remaining). Despite the protests of his team, Fox faced Molyneux alone. After Fox defeated him, Molyneux self destructs and is willing to take Fox with him, but then Fox's father, Duke Nukem , appears to guide him out of the base, while on the way out he says the famous quote "Never give up, trust your bubblegum" and mentions how strong Fox has become, finally disappearing back to Duke Nukem Forever when successfully exiting the base. Fox then left victorious as Molyneux's base exploded behind him. They headed back to Ponyville, where General Shepherd offered to officially integrate Star Fox into the Ponyville army. Fox refused, saying that they preferred to do drugs their own way. (Until Sour Cream where Fox totally fucked up by listening to Shepard.)
Four years after the Equestria Wars, the peace times have taken a heavy toll on the Star Fux team. After a training session with Aku (involving Game Boy-like devices and Arwings similar to the original Star Fox design), he receives a distress signal from Kat B320 . Before the team can reach a proper conclusion as to whether they should help her or not (she didn't seem to have a good track record.), Aku leaves abruptly to try and help her, much to Fox and the rest of the team's protests. They then decide to visit the Ponyville research Base on Reach, with the intention of finding Aku's whereabouts. They meet up with the officer in charge of the base, Captain Keyes , and he accepts their friend request, though under one condition. Fox and his team has to wipe out some Molyneux remnants who are making off with some "peanuts" relating to Molyneux's research. When Fox is fighting off the Molyneux vessel, he then notices another Arwing leaving the ship, and realizes that Aku seems to have "left". Aku then starts firing on Fox, thus forcing Fox to go into a dogfight with Aku. After a risky maneuver involving a charged shot that results in both Fox and Aku receiving critical damage (Though Fox received far less damage in comparison), he receives a tonguing from Vin for the dogfight. After Vin asked why Fox got into the Dogfight in the first place, Fox then explains that Aku had emerged from the Molyneux's ship, apparently want to star a dog fighting league. Vin then feels disturbed at what he's hearing. Fox then admits that he's beginning to feel suspicious about Keyes' true motivations. Shortly after Rainbow Dash is sent to the base to investigate (much to her chagrin, as she had bad memories from the last time she visited the planet), The Molyneuxians hail the Star Fox team. Turns out the "Molyneuxians" were actually Kat's team, the Marstons, and that they were never affiliated with Peter Molyneux. In fact, the reason why they had been on the planet is because they discovered peanuts pertaining to the project that Keyes' is involved in and was intending to expose it. After learning from Metal Gear REX that the project actually involved cloning Molyneux, they also learn that Rainbow Dash had been captured by the research facility under Keyes' command. Fox then tries to sneak into the base under a rescue mission, with the Marstons causing a distraction to lure most of the personnel from the base so Fox can have a easier time sneaking in. However, he still got caught by some of the guards, so he has to follow Vin's directions to the Cell that Rainbow Dash is located in while trying to outmaneuver several guards. After breaking him out, they try to duck into a nearby room, only to discover that the room was actually the room that Molyneux's revival was taking place. After Keyes enters, Fox and Keyes have a duel that mostly involved Keyes chasing Fox around on his Pelican. While it seems as though Keyes has the upper hand, Fox then notices a Coat of Arms and quickly yanks an energy sword off of it and duels with Keyes, and successfully disarms Keyes by thrusting his sword right into his rapier. Unfortunately, the Peter clone had matured far more rapidly than anticipated and broke out of the cloning container in a fit of rage by seeing Fox. Fox attempted to arrest Keyes, but when Keyes tried to escape, he ended up being killed by his very own creation, and Molyneux then attempts to suck Fox off. Fox then throws the sword and it connects with Peter's right eye, destroying it and leaving him partially blind. Upon Rainbow Dash's return (who is covered in slime thanks to Molyneux's revival), they then notice that the LandmASSter is still in the docking bay, and Fox attempts to use a Tactical Nuke on Molyneux to try and destroy him, destroying the base and nearly killing himself and Rainbow Dash in the process. After learning that Aku is leaving the team at least for the time being, he heeds Aku's last request and tells Kat that she and her friends should disband the Marstons. Four years later, he is training with Rainbow Dash (albeit this time with a model resembling the Game Boy Advance), and he beats Rainbow Dash (causing him to remark that Rainbow Dash's not really a good enough rival), He asks REX that no official requests have been made for them, but they do have a concern for a particular planet. Fox then decides with the remainder of the Star Fox team that they should try and save it. Presumably, they also asked permission for General Shepherd to carry out the mission.
In Star Fox Adventures, set eight years after the events of Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 2, a way more cockier and sexually mature Fox McCloud calmed the conflict on Sour Cream (also known as Hoth) by teaming with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air of the Gerudo tribe and returning the Chaos Emeralds to their rightful positions intwo of the planet's temples, freeing an imprisoned Krystal Meth by returning the five remaining Krazoa Spirits of Christmas to their rightful positions, thwarting the plans of General Mick Jagger , and defeating a reawakened Molyneux, who was behind the troubles on Sour Cream. After that, he returned to Great Fucks, and General Shepherd paid him for saving his Sour Cream. He and Aku (who had left after the events of the Reach incident.) were reunited, and Krystal Meth joined the Star Fox Team. Immediately afterwards, the Star Fox Team apparently used the monay that Fox received to repair the Great Fucks, as well as oilinMetal Gear and upgrading the Arwings and LandmASSters.
It has been a year since the events of Star Fox Adventures, and a new enemy has arisen. In Star Fox: Assault the Star Fux team must destroy the Robotnik's , creatures of the unknown, able to take over machines, battleships, and even bodies of others. Fox plays a crucial role in defeating the Robotnik's, transforming into a Super Saiyan to bring down Queen Latifah . It is due to the Robotnik threat that Fox and his team join forces with their rivals, Star Marty, to defeat the Robotnik's. Something interesting to note is that this is the first Star Fux game where the rest of Star Fux blows Fox in the final battle, though only for a part of it.
Once again, Equestria falls under peril in Star Fox On Demand, this time under attack by a new foe known as the Dovakkiin , who originated from Activision HQ's acidic oceans. It is up to Fox to save the galaxy once more by slowly liberating invaded territory and arriving at Activision to defeat the Dovahkiin. This time, he begins the battle with only Metal Gear at his side, as the team has been disbanded for various reasons. Along the way, other characters will join Fox and the team becomes whole again. In a special ending, Sly Cooper explains to his son Slick about the nature of the stars and how he will get to go there one day, Slick then asks to be told another story about Star Fux and Sly explains that while its getting late " Ok, one more story".
In the games Edit
Star Fox Edit
Fox is the main character in Star Fox. He sets out, with his team, to defeat Molyneux, but to his displeasure, the Molyneux fought was only a decoy.
Star Fox 2 Edit
Fox was originally going to appear in Star Fox 2, but the game was scrapped to make way for Star Fox 64. The ROM was leaked and is floating around on the internet though.
Star Fox 64 Edit
Fox has the role as main character again in Star Fox 64. His friendly nature contrasts that of Aku's. He sets out with his team to avenge his father's death, after learning of it from Vin. Before each mission,General Shepherd and Fox review the planet the team is about to enter. Also in this game, Fox's rivalry with Star Marty is revealed, as the two target each other and make remarks in dogfights. Fox is voiced by Frank West in the English release, and by Christopher Walken in the Japanese version.
Star Fox Adventures Edit
In Star Fox Adventures, Fox is shown to have a more playful, goofy, and less serious nature, in contrast to his behavior in Star Fox 64 and Super Smash Bros. Fox is the main playable character of the game, along with Krystal Meth, with whom he is a friend with benifits. Fox must make use of Krystal's Meth abilities and the help of the Fresh Prince to venture through the game and fight Shadow Company led by General Mick Jagger. Vin, Rainbow Dash, and Metal Gear REX provide help, but aren't physically involved in the game. At the end, Aku rejoins the team, to Fox's pleasure, and so does Krystal Meth. Fox attempts hiding his feelings for her when she thanks him, but REX reveals his penis size, embarrassing him. In Adventures, Fox is voiced by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Star Fox: Assault Edit
Fox appears again in Star Fox: Assault, serving a role similar to the one he played in Star Fox 64, with a more serious attitude than the one he had in Adventures. Fox and his team's original mission was to take down Alcartaz and his Ceph forces, but a new threat arrives: the Robotnik's. Fox's rivalry with Marty also softens in this game, as the two become less of enemies and more of friends, but still strong rivals. Fox reveals his feelings for Krystal Meth even more when revisiting Sour Cream after defeating the Robotnik's that had invaded there. This time, it is brought up by the Fresh Prince, who is now a rapper. His voice was done by John Marston in the English release and by Gorden Freeman in the Japanese release.
- Instruction booklet description - Head of the Republic commandos-for-hire Star Fux team. He's responsible for cleaning his room and extremely capable of taping Krystal while ASSessing situations and giving orders, not to mention a fiery negro with a strong sense of responsibility for his room and a 7th grade report card of success.
Multiplayer stats Edit
Fox is playable in the multiplayer mode of Assault as well as the story mode. He has balanced stats and the second best Pilot Skill of all characters in the game behind Aku and the second best LandmASSter Skill, behind Rainbow Dash. His preferred weapon in Assault is the standard Blaster.
|Speed||Second fastest in Equestria|
|Jump||Over the Moon boys!|
|Arwing Skill||"5/6" - IGN|
|LandmASSter Skill||King of butt sex land|
|Pilot Skill||Gotta catch'em all|
Star Fox Command Edit
In Star Fox On Demand, Fox serves the role of main character again. He now flies his own spacecraft, the SSV Normandy , which is an improved version of Big Bird . The Normandy can be upgraded depending on which depressing ending you choose through the game.
Ending 1 - The Star Fux Team EditDuring Ending 1 after the defeat of the Anglar forces, Fox spends most of his time convincing Krystal Meth to stay with the team. He is successful after telling her that they will always be together, and the team goes to funlad3's fish tank to meet Rainbow Dash's fiancee, Applejack . Rainbow Dash and Applejack get married on a beach, and Applejack joins the team to be closer to Rainbow Dash.
Ending 2 - Fox and Krystal Edit
After the Dovahkiin (Reach) falls in Ending of 2 the 40th day , Fox decides to retire and stay with Krystal leaving everything he REALLY loves behind( evidently Duke failed to teach him bros before hoes). The two have a son named Marcus, who, in his sexually confused teenage years, is enrolled in the Ponyville Flight Academy, where he learns how to fly the Arwing like his father and grandfather. Also like his forefathers, Marcus leads a new Star Fux team, with Aku as the adviser and Rainbow Dash's eldest son Sam Fisher and Lucy 's daughter Samus Aran as his wingmates.
Ending 3 - Left Alone Edit
The Dovakiin Army is defeated at Mount Doom , and Marty sends a transmission to the Star Fux team stating how frustrated he is at having his work go unnoticed. Along with the message, Sergeant Johnson tells Krystal Meth that he reluctantly accepts her rejoining Star Fux. After a few months, Krystal Meth can no longer handle the pressure and leaves the team to go back to Johnson and Star Marty, leaving Fox forever alone.
Ending 9 - G-Zero Edit
After Ness is defeated by the Star Fux team, Fox gets a transmission from Star Marty stating that they had beaten Rodney King and introduced Krystal Meth as a proud member of the team (cause that totally lasts). Fox sees this and he becomes depressed, barely eating or sleeping. Aku hates seeing his friend in despair, and has an idea; leave the mercenary business to become G-Zero Racers. They remodel their Arwings and enter the G-Zero Grand Prix, and soon forget about their pasts as they become famous as G-Zero Racers.
Fox McCloud has appeared in every Super Smash Bros. game to date. He wears his Star Fox 64 outfit in the series. Fox is a fast, light-weight character in each game, which contradicts his balanced stats in other games.
Fox's appearance inSuper Smash Bros. is based off of his design from Star Fox 64.Added by Blue NinjakoopaFox is a playable default character in Super Smash Bros. He is a light-weight, meaning he can be easily knocked-out at low percentages. His blaster can stun enemies in their tracks, his reflector can redirect other projectiles back at whomever is shooting at him, and his Fire Fox move launches him in the air a short distance. Fox has the second fastest running speed in the game, behind Captain Falcon.
Fox's alternative costumes in SSBAdded by Blue Ninjakoopa=====Character profile===== 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.
Fox's design in Melee was based off of his appearance in the original Star Fox, unlike his design in Super Smash Bros..Added by Blue NinjakoopaFox appears again as a playable default character in Melee. Fox is a light weight (lighter than he was in the previous game), and still the second fastest. Fox has the fastest falling speed of any character in the game, which makes up for his lost weight and can be used to his advantage. However, Fox is at a disadvantage when it comes to escaping throwing combos or some forms of juggling. Melee adds a dash attack, called the Fox Illusion. His Blaster is also sped up, and has rapid-fire capabilities, but enemies don't flinch at the impacts of its shots. His Fire Fox move also improves by going further than in the originalSuper Smash Bros. Also, at the beginning frames of the attack, characters who come in contact are repeatedly burned. Fox and Falco can perform a secret taunt on the Corneria and Venom stages by alternatively tapping left and right on the control pad. After that is done, Peppy and Slippy will fly over more often and say things. If Fox uses the taunt, Falco appears alongside them. If Falco uses the taunt, Fox appears alongside them. If they're both on the stage, only Peppy and Slippy will talk. Like in Adventures, the English dialogue for Melee is done by Steve Malpass.
|Fox McCloud is the leader of a band of adventurers-for-hire known as Star Fox. Fox and his fellow pilots Peppy, Slippy, and Falco patrol the Lylat system in their mother ship, the Great Fox. From the cockpit of his Arwing, Fox leads the ceaseless pursuit of the evil scientist Andross, who doomed Fox's father.|
|Fox is among the quickest and nimblest of the Smash Bros. characters. His speed is offset by low firepower, however, and he's better at one-on-one fights than melees with multiple foes. His Blaster is unique: it does damage but it doesn't make enemies flinch. His Fox illusion is best used as a surprise attack.|
|Fox falls quickly, so he's a tough target to strike from below; however, this advantage can work against him when he goes flying sideways. You can use the Control Stick to set the direction of the Fire Fox technique while it's charging up. On a side note, Fox is also much lighter than he was in the N64 Super Smash Bros. game.|
Fox's current Super Smash Bros. appearance. It is a mix between his Star Fox: Assaultand Star Fox Commanddesigns.Added by Blue NinjakoopaFox also makes an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a playable character by default. He is the only character that does not appear in the E-3 trailer. His outfit in Brawl is similar to, though not completely the same as, his Star Fox 64 and Star Fox Command designs. Additions include a holster for his gun, a scouter-like piece of equipment over his right eye, and his Reflector device is now visibly seen on his belt. His headset's microphone also appears on the right side of his face instead of the left, which was the case for all of its previous appearances. His Final Smash is the Landmaster, which can hover,Barrel Roll and shoot powerful blasts from the cannon. Fox, like Nintendo's other titular characters, has a major role in the Subspace Emissary. Jim Walker provides Fox's English voice in Brawl just as he did in the English version of Assault, and Kenji Nojima does the same for his Japanese voice. Fox is the only (or one of the few) characters that has changed clothings before he could star on a another game. He can perform a special taunt that opens a communications during a fight; however, he can only perform this taunt on one of his stages like Corneria and The Lylat Cruise. To make the taunt, Fox must first knock out an oppenent on the stage then perform a taunt quickly. If Fox gets hit before he can finish the taunt, it will fail and the special taunt can only be attempted once per fight. Falco and Wolf can perform this taunt as well. Snake can do it in his stage(Shadow Moses island) too, execpt he talks in the communications channel to learn about the brawler he knocked out.
- Standard B: Blaster: In Super Smash Bros. it is used to make approaching characters flinch, but in Melee andBrawl, it has no flinching power and is good for racking up damage on an approaching character.
- Side B: Fox Illusion: Introduced in Melee, Fox will kneel and dash in the direction he is facing at an amazing speed. His illusions behind him can cause damage.
- Up B: Fire Fox: In SSB, it had short range and was somewhat useless. In SSBM, it could burn his opponents while charging up and had longer range. The same applies in SSBB.However using fire fox on the smash ball will get immidietly in your body.
- Down B: Reflector: Fox's reflector has the unique ability to redirect an opponent's projectile back at them. Other reflectors have come along, but none are as quick.
- Final Smash - Landmaster: Fox will yell "Landmaster", jump in the air and come back down with an enormous tank. He will be able to shoot large blasts of energy and roll. He can also hover, so escaping this one is difficult.

Add a photo to this gallery=====Role in The Subspace Emissary===== An Arwing is seen engaging the battleship Halberd, but is soon struck and begins to fall toward it. This causes Kirby and Zelda/Peach to be blown overboard in its wake.
It is later shown that the Arwing crash-landed at the edge of a jungle, near a lake. Diddy Kong discovers the Arwing, but legendary Pokémon Rayquaza rises from the lake and territorially attacks the Arwing with a Dragon Pulse, setting it aflame. As Diddy Kong is snatched up by the provoked Pokémon, Fox is ejected from the cockpit of the burning Arwing and proceeds to effortlessly rescue Diddy Kong from the clutches of the serpentine Pokémon using his Fox Illusion. Fox's introduction in the Subspace Emisarry.Added by Blue NinjakoopaIn its anger Rayquaza uses another Dragon Pulse at Fox. Fox then uses his reflector to reflect the Dragon Pulse back at Rayquaza. Then Fox and Diddy Kong battle Rayquaza. After the two defeat the giant Pokémon, Fox attempts to leave, but is dragged away by Diddy Kong deeper into the jungle. Soon, they fight False Bowser and defeat him. Suddenly, the real Bowser fires his Dark Cannon at them, barely dodging the shot. Although Diddy Kong is eager to fight Bowser, Fox knows that they don't have a chance against his Dark Cannon, so he grabs Diddy Kong and jumps off a cliff.
After recovering from the fall, they are ambushed by Bowser again, who succeeds in turning Diddy Kong into a trophy. Bowser then attempts to turn Fox into a trophy, but he manages to dodge the shot, so Bowser sends some Shadowbugs to create False Diddy Kong, outnumbering Fox.Falco Lombardi suddenly appears out of nowhere in his Arwing and saves Fox from Bowser by destroying his Dark Cannon, forcing Bowser to escape. False Diddy Kong begins to absorb more Shadowbugs, becoming gigantic as a result. Fox uses the opportunity to revive the real Diddy Kong, and the three fight False Diddy Kong. After Falco unwillingly joins the group (being dragged along by Diddy in the same manner as Fox was earlier, much to Fox's amusement), they find a ship carrying Donkey Kong's trophy to a floating island. The Great Fox suddenly appears, and as Falco and Diddy Kong attempt to free Donkey Kong, Fox plans to take down the Halberd with the Great Fox.
The Great Fox duels with the Halberd, but it ends up getting tethered to and carried away by it, gets crashed into a mountain, and flies away in smoke. Later on, as Peach and Sheik/Zelda are making their escape after Solid Snake frees them, Fox is seen attacking the Halberd again in his Arwing. During the fire-fight, some of the Arwing's blasters hit dangerously close to Peach. Sheik does a very high range teleport on top of the Arwing and breaks open the cockpit. Both Sheik and Fox fall out of the Arwing and on the Halberd deck. They start running towards each other at high speeds and just before they break into a fight, Peach randomly offers them a cup of tea. Although Fox is shocked by this, when Sheik accepts hers, he accepts his as well. Just as they do, a group of Shadow Bug Mr. Game & Watches fall from the Halberd's cockpit and form into Duon. The three are joined by Lucario and Solid Snake (who knocked them down there in the first place), as well as Falco who arrives on another Arwing, and defeat the monster. Duon leaves behind the real Mr. Game & Watch's trophy as it disappears. Fox prepares to blast the trophy, but Peach approaches it and revives Mr. Game & Watch. Fox along with Falco joins the rest of the heroes in the assault on the Subspace Gunship and the attack on Tabuu.
|Fox McCloud (Assault)||The leader of the one and only Star Fox team. Fox McCloud has superb battle skills and is an expert pilot of both the Arwing and Landmaster. In on-foot battles, Fox starts with a blaster and continues on with four other types of weapons as he fights through the Aparoids. Fox also demonstrates his skills in air combat using the plasma cannons on the Arwing.|
Cameos and references in other gamesEdit
Fox has small cameos in other games, notably Cunt Race FX, where a portrait of him can be found in track-side billboards. Additionally, in one of the tracks, an Arwing will occasionally fly overhead. In F-Zero X and GX, a character named James McCloud is a playable racer, bearing the name of Fox's father. He has a similar appearance to James, with his hair looking like ears, and wears sunglasses as well. In the game Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Fox, along with other titular Nintendo characters, was going to appear as a customer at the Starbeans Cafe.
Physical appearance and traitsEdit
Fox has green eyes which sometimes appear to be blue, orange juice fur, and his golden-brown white-highlighted hair is cut into a crew cut. The rest of his skin is a cream-colored tone. He also has a bushy white-tipped tail. Fox is of medium/short height and medium weight, but this is contradicted in the Super Smash Bros. games, where he is a mid-sized target, but also very light.
Fox is an overall strong and loyal leader. Although a bit of a cocky rogue with a tendency to disregard rules and regulations (and to complain if he's not being paid enough), he is ultimately, according to Star Fox Adventures, "pure of heart". Fox is shown to be very protective of his friends, as seen in the games, of his team. Fox's facial expression is always either a stoic look or cocky smile.
Fox speaks in a rather youthful voice in all games.
Reception and popularityEdit
Since the release of the original Star Fux, Fox has gained a cult following in North Korea. Early in the Lintendo's 64 lifespan, he has ranked fifth in IGN's top 5 sexy Nintendo 64 character list. IGN praised Fox's appearance in Super Smash'Bros. Melee, saying that he featured some of the best sexture work and gay modeling in the game. In their preview ofStar Fox: Assault, IGN editors Juan Castro and Matt Casamassina described Fox's voice as "juvenile yet tough". Fox ranked eighth on GameDaily's Top 10 Smash Bros. characters list. In an IGN poll for voting from a list of ten Nintendo characters for favorite Nintendo character of all time, Fox came in fourth, behind Link, Mario, and Samus respectively. His quotes from Star Fox 64, along with Falco's and Wolf's, are also popular and well-known.
