Cornerian forces here! Permission to join the fray, sir?

Dash Bowman is a young pilot who flies for the Cornerian Army, as well as the grandson of Andross and first cousin once removed of Andrew Oikonny. He pilots the customized Monkey Arrow, a starfighter which resembles the Arwing, presumably due to Dash's fandom of Star Fox.


Following his grandfather's footsteps

In an alternate ending of Command, Dash stays behind on Venom to finish what his grandfather initially started. In the years that followed, Venom matches Corneria in almost every way. In time, Dash states Venom has replaced Corneria as the center of political power in the Lylat System. In months, a small conflict turns to war.

Pinnacle of the new world

In another alternate ending of Star Fox Command, Dash converted Venom into a peaceful planet. Intending to build a new world with himself in charge.

Star Falco member

In another alternate ending, he decides to join Falco and Katt Monroe to create the rival mercenary organization Star Falco, although his reasons are unknown. Because he appeared to be piloting a Sky Claw, it can be assumed that Dash had scrapped his Monkey Arrow.


Despite what his youthful appearance might imply, Dash is a polite, professional young pilot and he thought very highly of Fox McCloud and Falco Lombardi, and wished to join the Star Fox Team. Despite his age and appearance, he is a very skilled pilot. As the grandson of Andross, he thought highly of his intellect and acknowledges his death and original good intentions. This didn't stop him from being a fan of Fox or having negative emotion of him, considering that Fox eventually defeated his grandfather since he knew that Andross had apparently executed Fox's father, James McCloud. Because of his youth, small size and relation to Andross, Dash was unfortunately subject to ridicule during his meeting with Star Fox on Titania, initially rejected heavily by Falco such asking what he wanted from them such as: "A big lollipop? Some crayons?".

Super Smash Bros. series

Dash makes an appearance in "Super Smash Bros. Brawl" as a sticker, usable by any character.

Dash reappears in "Ultimate" as a collectible spirit. As a spirit Dash is a neutral primary spirit with a rank of Novice. In his spirit battle, Dash is represented by Diddy Kong from the Donkey Kong franchise, and partnered with Fox on the Corneria stage. This makes sense as Dash was introduced in "Command" as a pilot in the Cornerian Air Force and a great fan of Fox, despite his family connection to Andross.

  • Selecting Dash to fight the Bioweapon bosses on Titania will cause the "Ghost of Andross" to order the bioweapon to stop attacking his grandson. Upon the boss's destruction, Andross will express pride in Dash, deeming him worthy of carrying on his legacy. 
  • His character design resembles Algy of the Star Wolf wing from "Star Fox 2". Since many aspects of the formerly unreleased "Star Fox 2" were somewhat added into "Command", it is not unreasonable to speculate that Dash may be a spiritual successor to Algy, as well as Andrew serving as his replacement.
