The Bullfrog is a modified version of the Arwing, and Slippy Toad's personal star fighter. It is equipped with a Plasma Laser, three Smart Bombs and a two-second time bonus, but it is slower and bulkier than other starfighters. It also has no lock on-capabilities. However, its heavy shields make up for its lack of speed and maneuverability. Therefore, it is very likely that the Bullfrog's role is that of a bomber.

  • The Bullfrog bears the similar traits as Slippy from the Star Fox: Assault multiplayer, because they both have high health but a very low top speed. Ironically, Slippy has the second fastest laser charge speed in that game, but the Bullfrog cannot charge its own laser.
  • The Bullfrog may be the successor to the Armoured Arwing that appears in Star Fox 2 due to the similarities between the ship statistics and the borrowed elements of the latter game.
