— ROB 64

ROB 64, also known as ROB or ROB the Robot[1], is the robotic operator of the Star Fox team's mothership, the Great Fox. His first appearance is in Star Fox 64.

Description

ROB's name is a reference to the NES accessory, R.O.B. (Robotic Operating Buddy), which is another type of robot. The "64" is derived from the Nintendo 64, which is the console of his first appearance, the Nintendo 64. His Japanese name, NUS64, has a slightly different derivation from the Nintendo 64; it is a reference to the console's serial number, including its peripherals. It is also the abbreviation of "Nintendo Ultra 64", which was a working title for the Nintendo 64. In Star Fox Adventures, the letters "NUS" are located at the top of his chest.

Because ROB 64 is capable of piloting the Great Fox, which technically makes it entirely autonomous. ROB 64 is networked to the ship's main computers, allowing him to process information requested by the Star Fox team. ROB can also use the Great Fox's transfer device to deliver vehicles and items to member of the Star Fox team out in the field.

ROB 64 has a metallic and humanoid-like body. His head is somewhat oval-shaped, and his face has a small plate with vents for a mouth, which moves as he communicates. ROB 64 has a glowing, red visor for eyes. His torso is out-thrust and has a rectangular LED screen displaying the Star Fox team's symbol. He has extendable wrists on both of his arms.

History

Star Fox 64

In his debut appearance, Star Fox 64, ROB 64's role was operating and maintaining the Great Fox. When needed, ROB sent supply boxes that contained rings or Smart Bombs from the mothership. ROB also repaired the shield-depleted Arwings of Fox's teammates, and would be done with fixing them by the time Fox had finished the next level. ROB only serves to relay information to the pilots, such as "Location confirmed. Sending supplies." or "Great Fox will cover you." In this game, ROB is the most analytical.

Star Fox Adventures

ROB reappeared Star Fox Adventures, where he had a minor but crucial role. He helped Fox to process his save data. He is featured in the opening and ending cutscenes with the Great Fox, along with the core Star Fox team. In the opening scene, he is being rebuilt by Slippy Toad, and is possibly the cause of his changing, human-like personalities.

Star Fox Assault

In Star Fox: Assault, ROB 64 had a similar role as in Star Fox 64. He was nearly destroyed when Peppy Hare crashed the Great Fox into the shield protecting the entrance to the Aparoid Queen's lair, but Peppy and ROB managed to use an escape pod before the ship was destroyed. The Apraroid Queen had used ROB's voice to try and convince the team to "join them".

Star Fox Command

ROB reappears in Star Fox Command, piloting the new version of the Great Fox in the map mode, and also giving some advice to Fox and the other characters during the missions. On some paths in the game, ROB joins Star Wolf team when no "hero" character is playable. In this game, he, like in Adventures, becomes more humanoid, even uttering sarcastic remarks. For instance, if the Great Fox is destroyed, ROB says, "Goodbye cruel world." He even has veiled feelings for Lucy Hare, when he remarks to her that he'd do anything for her.

NTSC-U: A robot who assists the Star Fox team, though with statements like "zero percent possibility of success," he's definitely not the team's morale officer. His frank analysis does help the team hone their plans, and with support from him and Peppy, the pilots can stay focused on the fighting.

PAL: A robot that assists the Star Fox team. Sometimes he says rather blunt and depressing things about how they have a "zero percent possibility of success", but it only helps them hone their plans based on his expert analysis. With support from him and Peppy, the pilots can keep their minds on the action.
