Screenshot Saturday: One of the best elements of Star Fox Adventures is its portrayal of Fox McCloud. Ironically, in large part thanks to the Star Fox team ending the Lylat Wars by taking out Andross, decimating his infrastructure and military forces, and sending their primary rival Star Wolf into hiding, the Lylat System had low demand for a merc-for-hire-unit like Fox and company following the events of Star Fox 64.
The mostly-quiet (see the canon Manga comic Farewell, Beloved Falco for when it wasn’t) period of seven years that Fox and co. spent sitting around an increasingly dilapidated Great Fox, scraping for cash and waiting for a call to action, had clearly taken a toll on the character: no longer the gung-ho hero he once was, the early moments of Star Fox Adventures set Fox up as a jaded, impatient, and sarcastic jerk who just wants to quickly patch Dinosaur Planet/Sauria so that he can clear his payment from General Pepper and go home. The events of the game slowly turn Fox around as he grows to care about the innocent lives at stake and sees the danger General Scales presents, but in the meantime, Fox is plenty ready to roll his eyes, complain, and express utter bafflement at the situation he’s gotten himself into.
This is a roundabout way of saying there’s a lack of Star Fox Adventures gifs showing how the character animation highlights just how done with this shit Fox is over the course of the game, and we’re on the way to rectifying that.
