The Anglar Emperor is the leader of the Anglar race, and the primary antagonist of Star Fox Command. He attacked Corneria shortly after the Aparoids were destroyed during of the Aparoid Invasion. His five main cronies are Zako (Aquas), Zazan (Corneria), Zoldge (Solar), Octoman (Aquas), and Andrew Oikonny (Fichina).



The Anglars were once a non-sapient fish race inhabiting Venom's acidic ocean. When Andross was banished to Venom, he created a device that hastened his own evolution and allowed him to gain control over Venom's native creatures. He then converted several of them into bioweapons and spread them throughout the Lylat System. The Anglars were affected by the device, which contained Andross's DNA, as well and soon became a fierce fighting force. Despite apparently knowing that Andross created their race, the Anglars did not revere the ape, instead, following the leadership of their own Emperor. When Andross met his fate at the hands of the Star Fox Team, the Anglar Emperor took advantage of Venom's quarantine status, and began preparing for an assault on the Lylat System.

Anglar Blitz

The Anglars made their existence known some time after the Aparoid Invasion, and launched a large attack against the system. The Star Fox Team had disbanded, and without them to defend Lylat, the Anglars quickly gained the upper hand, making it as far as Corneria. Near the end of the war, Star Fox Team was re-formed, and began decimating the Anglar Forces. Depending on the player's choices, the Anglar Emperor met his end at the hands of either Star Fox, or Star Wolf. The Emperor piloted the massive Arrow Head for battle. If the Arrow Head is destroyed in the Asteroid field, the Emperor Anglar dies with it.

However if fought in the seas of Venom, the Anglar Emperor will eject from his ship before it explodes, transforming himself a giant anglar fish and battles the player personally. After a fierce battle, the Anglar Emperor is defeated, his burnt body falling into the depths of Venom.


  • When battling him in the Venom depths, his attacks resemble those from battles with his presumed creator Andross, complete with the ape's signature inhale and exhale attacks.
  • In the depths fight, when he takes damage, he will say "Oh sh...", then falter. He may have been about to swear, although the presumed word he was about to use is the same word but with another term which is not considered vulgar in Japanese.
  • Though male, his appearance resembles a female Anglerfish as male anglerfish lack lures and are much scrawnier then the burly females.
  • All three main antagonists' (aside from the unfought General Scales, not counting the questionable canonicity of the Anglar Blitz) names begin with the letter A. The main antagonist and final boss of Star Fox 64 and Star Fox Adventures is Andross. The final boss and main antagonist of Star Fox Assault is the Aparoid Queen. And the main antagonist and (usual) final boss of Star Fox Command is the Anglar Emperor (although Pigma can also be fought as a final boss).
  • His full portrait is only seen in a promotional render printed in a preview in a Japanese manga.
