The Galdon is a minor antagonist that appears in Star Fox Adventures.


The Galdon is a big, monstrous bug/dinosaur hybrid. He has four legs, two arms, a stinger, and a head surrounded by spikes. Due to next to nothing being known of his past, it could be possible that Galdon is one of General Scale's genetic experiments, like Drakor.


The Galdon makes his first appearance when Fox McCloud and Tricky find a warp pad in DarkIce Mines, and teleport to the Galdon's room discover him, frozen in an underground cave with the first SpellStone in-hand. After the duo melt him down with the Fire Command, the aberration wakes up and swallows the SpellStone, challenging them.

Fox attacks by using his staff to hit the Galdon on his stinger, but the Galdon, enraged, manages to swallows Fox as well. Once inside him, Fox notices that the Spellstone is held within some sort of membrane, and the latter resorts to whacking the membrane to get the SpellStone. (NOTE: If Fox stays in Galdon's stomach for too long, the stomach acids will kill him.) This action causes Galdon to regurgitate, and once free, Fox notices a weak point in Galdon's chest. After pelting him with the Fire Blaster, Galdon once again swallows Fox. Once inside, McCloud repeatedly beats the membrane, finally releasing the SpellStone. Fox attempts to grab the SpellStone, but before he could grab it, he feels some jolts, causing him to realize to his dismay that he's going to end up violently vomited out yet again.

When the SpellStone is free, the Galdon begins sicken. After throwing up Fox, Galdon clutches at his throat, gurgles, and eventually chokes to death. He dies after uttering a low burp.


  • Galdon bears a striking resemblance to the main villain of Men in Black, a giant alien cockroach. Also both are defeated when they eat a character who attacks them from the inside (although in the case of the cockroach, he survives for one last attack before he is finally destroyed).
  • Galdon bears a resemblance to the Acklay, one of the beasts in the Geonosian Arena from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.
  • The Galdon has the second most number of phases for his battle, tied with King RedEye for four phases. They are only beaten by Andross, who has five.

Early Development

  • In a voiced but unfinished scene, Garunda Te claims to be the one that froze Galdon before reconciling with Belina Te. This was not revealed in the final game.
    • In addition, Klanadack was an early name for Galdon.
