"Slippy's not much of a fighter, but he's an excellent mechanical engineer."
Star Fox: Assault instruction booklet, page 36

Slippy Toad is the mechanic and inventor for the Star Fox team and a childhood friend of Fox. His father is Beltino Toad, whom he has worked with for developing various inventions, including vehicles like the Arwing and Landmaster or weapons like the Reflector and Blaster.

Physiology

Slippy's last name suggests that he is a species of toad, but he closely resembles a bullfrog. Slippy is rather short and pudgy, and also has blue eyes.

Slippy wears a red cap that usually has his name imprinted on it and is humorously placed in between his eye-sockets and a yellow bodysuit with different kinds of equipment including a utility belt and a watch. In games before Assault, Slippy is shown with a jacket similar to the one Fox wears and similar pants. He is the only character, along with Krystal, to keep his bodysuit from Assault (although in some cutscenes, he is seen with his other outfit).

Slippy also wore a trademark bead necklace in Star Fox, Star Fox 2 and in the Nintendo Power comic, but this is absent in Star Fox 64 and subsequent games until Star Fox Command, where one of the endings shows an elderly Slippy wearing a similar necklace.

History


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


Star Fox / Star Fox 64

Slippy first fought in the battle of Corneria, where Fox had to rescue him from some enemy fighters. Slippy would also participate in subsequent battles, starting with Granga and the Attack Carrier. Later in Meteo, Slippy helps with destroying the Rock Crusher and gets into the portal to Katina. He helps with destroying most of the enemy fighters. During Solar, Slippy proudly claims that Arwings can handle temperatures at 9000 degrees maximum. Starting with Fichina, Slippy has a direct rivalry with Andrew Oikonny, as they get in a dogfight match.

As he battles Spyborg on Sector X, Slippy attempts to fight him alone, but is slapped away to Titania. Over there he gets captured by the Goras, whom the Star Fox team would eventually battle. After being rescued, Slippy rejoined the Star Fox team on their missions.

On Aquas, Slippy provides tips to Fox about the Blue Marine and shows disgust at the pollution. Slippy helps with destroying the searchlights at Zoness. At Sector Z he assists with destroying some missiles. On Macbeth, he asks Fox how the Landmaster works for him, and also destroys some fighters. At Bolse he informs Fox that the fighters are shielded and again fights Andrew of Star Wolf. At Area 6 he helps fend off some fighters and gives information on the Gorgon's weakness. On Venom he tries to stay clear of the temple where Golemech is, but goes in. At Andross's palace, he fights Andrew again and unsuccessfully advises Fox about going in. After Fox killed Andross, the team returned to Corneria to be congratulated and offered a commission by General Pepper. They then head to the Great Fox and fly of into the sunset.

Star Fox Adventures

Slippy also appeared in Star Fox Adventures, which takes eight years after the Lylat Wars. Slippy's main role was providing Fox with information and hints regarding his current surroundings. At the start of their adventure, Slippy was busy fixing ROB 64. Slippy withdrew from active flight duty to work on his inventions, such as the SharpClaw Disguise that he gives to Fox at CloudRunner Fortress. The Star Fox team was successfully reunited after Andross's second and ultimate defeat. With the return of Falco and Krystal joining the team, Slippy happily recited: "The Star Fox Team is back together again."

Star Fox: Assault

In Star Fox: Assault, Slippy joined Star Fox with battling Andrew Oikonny at Fortuna. Arriving just in time to save the Cornerian fleet from destruction, Slippy and the team got into their Arwings, and fought against the Venomian Fleet. Slippy was tailed and rescued by Fox, to which Falco teased Slippy saying "You haven't changed a bit, frog-boy".

During the battle with Oikonny, Slippy was able to find his stealth squadron via radar and warned Fox of the incoming enemy. They were eventually forced to go planet side, since Oikonny had made a hasty retreat there. At the battle, they reached Oikonny's base, only to find the Venomian army had plotted against them. Slippy was trailed again and was rescued by Fox again. The team caught up to Oikonny and Slippy downloaded his shields, so the Star Fox team were easily capable of defeating Oikonny.

As Oikonny was taunting the team, he was suddenly fired down by an unknown assailant, which tried killing Krystal. Fox defeated the enemy, only for Slippy to warn him of more incoming enemies. General Pepper revealed the assailants to be Aparoids. It was revealed to Slippy's chagrin that his father, Beltino Toad, was the research director. Beltino Toad also revealed to Fox and the Star Fox team that the item Fox obtained from an Aparoid was its Core Memory.

As General Pepper suddenly alerted the team of a distress signal from Katina Outpost, Fox commands Slippy and the rest to cover him from Arwings. At the battle, dozens of Aparoids were found, which later dropped Aparoid Hatchers. Slippy was tailed and rescued by Fox, who was piloting a Landmaster. During the mission, Slippy wondered if the building had any survivors.

When the Aparoid Walker appeared, Slippy panicked at its massive size, saying "It's huge!" He also downloaded the shield data of the Aparoid Walker, and the team could defeat him. The Star Fox team also discovered its Core Memory, which was suddenly and abruptly stolen by Pigma Dengar.

At the Battle of Sargasso, Slippy helped occupy the space station, and later helped with tracking down Pigma and retrieving the Core Memory. Slippy then helped at the Battle of Corneria, but was distraught at General Pepper's condition. He then assisted at the Beltino Orbital Gate, and in the invasion of the Aparoid Homeworld. The team was about to invade, but the Aparoids set up a last resort shield. Slippy then fought against the Queen, but warned Fox that if she escaped, she would be able to counter the self-destruct program she had been infected with. They eventually killed the Aparoid Queen, also destroying any Aparoids she had controlled.

Star Fox Command

In Star Fox Command, Slippy temporarily withdrew from the Star Fox team to spend more time with his newfound love, Amanda. However, the Cornerian forces got in a war with the Anglar Empire, so Fox called Slippy to rejoin the team. Slippy happily decides to rejoin the team in his new Bullfrog aircraft. Based on the ending, Slippy he either rejoined the team and helped kill the Anglar Emperor, or settled down with Amanda and started a family.

After the Aparoid race was destroyed in Star Fox Assault, Slippy temporarily withdrew from the Star Fox team to spend more time with his newfound love, Amanda. However, when Fox needs backup taking out the Anglar forces, Slippy is happy to come to his assistance again. He pilots a new starfighter, the Bullfrog. In one of the endings, Slippy has a large family with Amanda, and his eldest son becomes a member of the Star Fox team under the leadership of Marcus McCloud. In a future time period, Slippy tells his numerous grandchildren of the Star Fox team's legacy.

Personality

Slippy Toad is the son of Beltino Toad, the Research Director for the Cornerian Defense Force. Both Slippy and Beltino invented and constructed many inventions for the team, including the Blue Marine. In the gap between Star Fox 64 and Star Fox Adventures, both the Toads, Slippy and Beltino, briefly designed aircraft for Cornerian Defense Force. He is hinted as being less athletic than the rest of the team. Example are found in the ending of Star Fox 64, when the team runs a long distance, where Slippy slowly falls behind, and in the introduction of the same game, Slippy is seen falling behind his wingmates. Also, in Star Fox Assault, in the scene where everybody jumps into their ships for launching, Slippy ends up falling head first into his ship. Slippy played a major role in the Lylat Wars as a new and inexperienced Arwing pilot. During dogfights between Star Fox and Star Wolf, Slippy shares a rivalry with Andrew Oikonny. His main role is providing information about the area, similar to Peppy Hare, and analyzing the shield strength of bosses. Slippy's inexperience and lack of talent while flying get him into trouble more often than any other team member, for which Falco taunts him mercilessly.

Relationships with other characters

Slippy and Fox are childhood friends. The two seem to get along the most out of all other members of the Star Fox team; Fox is always prepared to help Slippy in times of grave need, as seen in Star Fox 64 when Slippy and his Arwing are knocked into Titania's atmosphere by Spyborg, in which Fox was willing to risk delay and dangerous outcome by traveling to the planet and saving Slippy using the Landmaster. In return, Slippy provides Fox (and usually other team members) with top-notch technology in the Super Smash Bros. games, like the reflector, and gives Fox valuable information in a manner similar to Peppy's when giving advice.

Falco is also a good friend of Slippy's, but the two are known to have a small rivalry, as Falco oftentimes picks on Slippy. Falco has shown disapproval of the Slippy-designed Landmaster and the Blue Marine (as seen while Fox was going through Aquas in Star Fox 64), despite using one with enhanced hovering capabilities in Super Smash Bros. Brawl . Slippy mentions to Snake in Brawl that Falco likes to "show off" his on-hand equipment, like his special reflector, which is magnetic and is kicked for a boomerang effect. In Assault, Slippy generally annoys Falco, and in Star Fox 64, the two bicker a lot, though to a lesser extent in Assault.

In Brawl during one of the secret taunt conversations at the Lylat Cruise stage, Slippy tries to relate to Leon Powalski by pointing out that they are both members of the reptilian family. Leon, of course, disdainfully agrees, but is later annoyed to the point where he flies away.

In Command, Slippy meets a toad named Amanda, with whom he forms a relationship with and soon marries. In one of the endings, they have numerous children, and one of them (colored orange) joins the new Star Fox team led by Marcus McCloud.

Slippy Toad is the mechanical genius behind most of the Star Fox team's new weapons and technology, and just lately he's been spending the bulk of his time in Research and Development. He's also a competent pilot, but his enthusiasm tends to outweigh his technical flight skills. He and Fox have been friends ever since their school days.
