James McCloud was the leader of the original Star Fox team. He is also the father of current team leader Fox McCloud. After a failed mission against the evil Dr. Andross, he was supposedly killed.

Appearance

James McCloud's signature has, since Star Fox 64, been wearing a pair of sunglasses. Otherwise he carries a close resemblance in both appearance and apparel as his son, Fox McCloud.

Development (Out of Game)

In game History


Spoiler warning: The following contains key plot or ending details.


James McCloud is credited to have been the first leader of the Star Fox Team, which was formed in response to the initial threat against Corneria posed by Andross. While on a mission against Andross, James McCloud fell into a black hole after a bomb experiment "failure". Andross, who was a scientist of Corneria then, created this bomb, secretly planning for it to detonate when James McCloud reached critical velocity, thus sending him into a black hole. Pigma was also involved in this plan, and helped with assuring the death of James McCloud.

Manifestations

Many years later, when Fox had finally completed James's final mission, Andross had triggered his lab's self destruct. Some manifestation of James appeared and guided Fox out of the lab before it was destroyed. James disappeared when Fox had made it out of the lab entrance. While Fox headed back to the Great Fox, a spark crossed the sky, possibly signifying that James was actually alive.

Eight years later, Fox obtained a message from James when he deposited a Cheat Token in the maze beneath the WarpStone. During the fight against the Aparoid Queen, the Queen used James's voice in an attempt to turn Fox to her side. Falco snapped him out of it when he reminded Fox that his father was dead, but the Queen continued to use his voice to trick the team.

Dash Makes a Decision

This story occurs if Wolf leaves Fox and Falco before they go to Titania.
