The Star Fox team, also formatted Star Fox Team, is a rag-tag team of independent, space mercenaries and the main protagonists of the Star Fox series. This team is often hired by the Cornerian military whenever the authorities believed they need their specialized assistance in saving the planet and rest of the Lylat System from various invaders, most notably the maniacal scientist Andross.

The team is currently led by Fox McCloud. It has consisted of several different members throughout its history, and was founded and originally led by James McCloud, Fox's father. The team usually uses an assortment of vehicles and weapons to accomplish their missions, most notably the space-fighter vehicles known as Arwings. In the current canon, a large battleship called the Great Fox serves as the team's base of operations. Since the Great Fox is continuously mobile in the confines of outer-space, Star Fox's headquarters can be moved anywhere in the Lylat System, although the Great Fox often orbits around Corneria.

The Star Wolf team are the main rivals of the Star Fox team.

Star Fox is a group of space mercenaries whom originally consisted of three founding members: James McCloud, Peppy Hare, and Pigma Dengar. All three founding members are from the planet Corneria, and apparently they all had some military training before the formation of the group. This group was apparently founded and led by James McCloud. The origins of Star Fox's foundation is currently unknown, although at some point in the original team's life Star Fox was called on a mission by General Pepper of the Cornerian army to go investigate some odd activity on planet Venom. Five years prior to this mission, General Pepper had exiled to Venom a rogue Cornerian scientist called Andross, whom was accused of corrupting the Lylat System's environments due to his dangerous experiments.

When Star Fox team reached Venom, Dengar managed to betray his team, and apparently was cause for the capture of both McCloud and Hare by Andross. Hare eventually, but barely, managed to escape Venom, apparently returning to Corneria with sad news to McCloud's family, especially to his only son Fox, that James McCloud was killed-in-action. It was never made clear was really happened on Venom that day though.

The first Star Fox team under Fox McCloud

Some number of years have passed since the last mission on Venom, during which Fox McCloud had received some military training of his own before eventually reforming his father's legacy which is the Star Fox team. McCloud had invited members such as his academic colleague Slippy Toad, his mentor and surviving member Pepper Hare, and a relatively new friend young McCloud made called Falco Lombardi, a space-gangster who had rehabilitated to become an ace space pilot. Some time after the new Star Fox team was formed, General Pepper called upon them to assist the Cornerian army with a surprise invasion originating from Venom. Andross was quickly suspected to be behind this new invasion, and so the Star Fox team was dispatched to go on a mission and destroy the Core Brain on planet Venom.

The Star Fox team had went through several locations and sub-missions throughout the Lylat System before finally reaching Venom. They had assistance from allies such as Bill Gray and Katt Monroe, and occasionally had to face their rivals Star Wolf before they got there. It later turns out that Andross is the Core Brain, but regardless McCloud manages to destroy Andross, risking his life in the process, but strangely saved by a mysterious apparition of his father. Star Fox team return to Corneria victorious. (See Star Fox, Star Fox 64, and/or Star Fox 64 3D for more details. Also check the Lylat Wars article.)
