- “Analysis in progress...”
Direct-i is an analytical robot, tow cable deployed by Gyrowing pilots in Star Fox Zero. It is designed for exploration and does not seem to be suited for combat. It resembles the R.O.B. accessory, manufactured for certain Nintendo Entertainment System games, as well as a slight resemblance to ROB 64.
The Gyrowing is can deploy Direct-i to hack into computer systems and fit into small places that the chopper cannot reach. It can also use Direct-i to pick up certain bombs off the ground and drop them on foes.
Direct-i plays an important role when Andross's forces attempted to recover the Gigarilla, and Star Fox was ordered by General Pepper to access the Gyrowing in order to prevent the Gigarilla's capture. Fox eventually managed to locate and gain control of the Gyrowing, as well as activate the Gigarilla via the Direct-i application's scan function, thus having Gigarilla, with the Gyrowing's help, turning against Andross's forces before they could get it through the wormhole.
