Fox McCloud is dedicated to the Star Fox mercenary team, which is why he is their leader. Fox is brave and advanced for a pilot in his league and is quite optimistic, which results in his being compared to Luke Skywalker from the Star Wars series. His father educated him never to give up in his childhood.
Fox is the proud leader and captain of the Star Fox team after taking up the role from his late father, James McCloud.
Super Smash Bros.
Super Smash Bros. 64
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 McCloud is a nimble and fast character.
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Fox returns in Super Smash Bros. Melee, retaining his role as a starting playable character. He is currently ranked 1st on the tier list due to countless shine techniques (such as the shine spike which can easily gimp characters, and the waveshine which can combo and rack up damage), and amazing matchups, lacking any negative ones.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Fox is a starting playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. His design is a mix between his Star Fox Assault and Star Fox Command appearances, but his fur has its color scheme from Star Fox 64. It is also the first Super Smash Bros. game where Fox's eyes are their proper color (green).
Super Smash Bros. 4
Fox was confirmed as a playable character during the E3 2013 Nintendo Direct. Like his appearance in Brawl, Fox's appearance is primarily based on Star Fox Command, but he appears to have higher quality fur visuals, similar to Donkey Kong. Contrary to his appearance, Mike West, his Star Fox 64 and Star Fox 64 3D English voice actor, now voices Fox.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Fox returns as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He is now based on his appearance from Star Fox Zero. He has a new Final Smash which involves an Arwing strike with his Star Fox Team.
