The Meteo Crusher, also known as Rock Crusher, is a utility ship designed to, as its name's sake, crush asteroids and planets in the Asteroid Field into dust and extract the raw ore and minerals found within them. These materials would then be transported back to Venom bases to be refined and later used to construct weapons and starfighters.

In the first Star Fox game, two Rock Crushers were sent to clear asteroid fields near Corneria for Venom's forces to build bases, as well as allow the Space Armada to attack Corneria. In Sector X, one of the two Crushers has already destroyed many asteroids. Despite being utility vessels, the Meteo Crushers aren't defenseless, having a cluster of four cannons on either end of their structures. Once the cannons are destroyed, however, there is nothing keeping its heavy body secured to the main core inside and it flies off into space exposing itself.

The core is where the minerals are thought to be stored and is the weakest part of the Crusher. Its only defense is a single rapid fire cannon at its center.

In Star Fox 64, the Star Fox team is sent to Meteo to take one out. Its manner of defenses are a shield that can absorb laser shots and fire three powerful blasts, missiles, ring lasers and lighting-like beams. After bringing the Meteo Crusher's strength down to half, the pilot will attempt to fool the player by faking a surrender- the pilot can blow his own cover, or Falco will expose his lies.
