Fox

Main Article: Fox McCloud#Super Smash Bros. Melee

Fox McCloud, the eponymous protagonist of the Star Fox series, returns from Super Smash Bros. with an updated move set:

Special Move
Fox's special move is his Blaster. This attack is known for being able to cover the whole distance of the stage, fires at a extremely fast rate, and is great for racking up damage.
Side Special
Fox's side special is Fox Illusion. This move makes Fox move in a single direction at a blinding speed, and is good for being a surprise attack against opponents.
Up Special
Fox's up special is Fire Fox. This move is used as his recovery, but can also be used as an attack. His recovery can also be countered with precise timing, but Fox can use this move again if he is hit with an attack.
Down Special
Fox's down special is his Reflector. This move is great for reflecting projectiles aimed at Fox, but can shatter if too many items are reflected. This move is also great to use against opponents that are near Fox.

Falco

Main Article: Falco Lombardi#Super Smash Bros. Melee
FalcoMelee.png

Falco Lombardi, the ace pilot of Star Fox, is introduced, and shares a similar move set with Fox:

Special Move
Falco's special move is his Blaster. This move is different from Fox's in a few ways, as it fires at a slower rate, and stuns any opponent that comes in contact with it.
Side Special
Falco's side special move is Falco Phantasm. This move is similar to Fox's, but travels a much shorter distance than his. However, this move is performed faster than Fox's.
Up Special
Falco's up special is Fire Bird. This move is incredibly similar to Fox's, with only minor differences. One such is that Falco covers a much smaller distance than Fox, and the opponents can be hit while the move is being charged, unlike Fox whose only hits once the he begins to move.
Down Special
Falco's down special is his Reflector. The move is identical to Fox's in many ways, but sends opponents upwards, unlike Fox.

Stages

Two new stages from the Star Fox series are added:

Fox McCloud is the leader of a band of adventurers-for-hire known as Star Fox. Fox and his fellow pilots Peppy, Slippy, and Falco patrol the Lylat system in their mother ship, the Great Fox.

FoxTrophyAdventure.png
Fox is among the quickest and nimblest of the Smash Bros. characters. His speed is offset by low firepower, however, and he's better at one-on-one fights than melees with multiple foes. His Blaster is unique: it does damage but it doesn't make enemies flinch. His Fox illusion is best used as a surprise attack.

Fox falls quickly, so he's a tough target to strike from below; however, this advantage can work against him when he goes flying sideways. You can use the Control Stick to set the direction of the Fire Fox technique while it's charging up. On a side note, Fox is also much lighter than he was in the N64 Super Smash Bros. game.

Falco Trophy Melee.png

Star Fox team pilot, Falco's constant air of casual indifference belies his precise piloting skills. He avoids discussion of what he did before joining the team, but many consider it likely that his past was filled with reckless behavior. He's not much for cooperation, but he does respect those more skilled than he is.

Where his leader, Fox, has blinding speed, Falco has his own distinct skills and advantages. He has both a higher jump and a longer reach than Fox, and although his Blaster lacks rapid-fire capabilities, it strikes with shocking force. Unlike Fox Falco can stop enemies in their tracks with his Blaster fire.

Falco's amazing jumping abilities have many merits, but it's vital to realize that it comes at the cost of some attack power and defensive strength. He falls at a high speed, which disrupts potential attackers, but this also prevents successful recoveries occasionally. Hit an opponent with Reflector, and he or she will fly straight up; this is Falco's quickest attack.

Arwing Trophy Melee.png

The Arwing is the symbol of Star Fox. Like an F-Zero racer, it's equipped with an opposing-gravity device. It can barrel roll and flip with ease thanks to its quick acceleration and flexible control. In battle, the ship uses retractable wings for precise flying. Every Arwing has smart bombs as its sub-weapons.

PeppyTrophyMelee.png
Peppy was a member of the original Star Fox team with Fox's father James McCloud. Peppy was the sole survivor of the Battle of Venom where a treacherous teammate named Pigma Dengar betrayed the team. Peppy now rarely climbs into the cockpit of an Arwing, preferring instead an advisory position in mission planning.

The mother ship of the Star Fox team. When in battle, the ship's robot, ROB, can assume control of the bridge, allowing all hands to take to their Arwings or combat positions.

SlippyTrophyMelee.png

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.

The beloved ship of the mercenary team Star Wolf, which was hired to destroy Fox and his team. The ship's abilities rival an Arwing.: As a matter of fact, the Wolfen II was an improvement over its predecessor and could nearly outperform team Star Fox's ships. Star Wolf's leader, Wolf O'Donnell is Fox's most persistent rival.

Andross SNES HQ Melee.png
Star Fox's archenemy. Whether it's a metallic manifestation of Andross or just a hologram is unknown, but from its outward appearance, it's safe to assume that it's not the fiend's true form. Andross occasionally sucks matter in and then violently exhales, sending out a cloud of metal tiles. Its eyes are its weak points.

Andross 64 HQ Melee.png
This incarnation of Andross was so big as to be ridiculous, but it at least appeared to be a living being. Andross was once a brilliant scientist, but was banished from the galaxy for his dangerous experiments. From the planet Venom, he readied his troops and directed his sword of vengeance toward the Lylat System.

Landmaster Tank Trophy Melee.png
Team Star Fox's high-powered, anti-aircraft hover tank. Its caterpillar-like treads allow it to perform quick lateral rolls. It can even fly for short periods of time. Its main cannons closely resemble the weapons technology on an Arwing, so the same rules apply: if you charge them up, you can shoot guided missiles.
