Garoas are hostile aquatic lifeforms native to Aquas. Wether or not they are a natural species or affected by Andross's pollution and mutated into bioweapons is unknown. However, they do give out Hit Points which makes the later more likely.


Garoas are mysterious, vaguely sapient-like crustaceans native to Aquas. The creatures often hide themselves in their shells that are resilient to laser fire. However, blasting them with torpedoes will force them to expose themselves and attack by hurling energy blasts at whoever is attacking it. Once the wings are open, you can use eithe torpedoes or lasers to win the battle. You'll earn a Supply Ring from one of the defeated enemies.

The mysterious Garoas hide within their shells until disrupter by torpedo shots from the Blue-Marine, then they spread their wings wide in a dangerous embrace. When the wings are spread, fire a torp and follow it up with laser shots.

Medal Tips

Shoot, fire torpedoes and barrel roll simultaneously for best results in the seas of Aquas. To make sure you destroy as many enemies as possible, use the brake to hold back and get them all! The underwater canyon just before the final lieutenant is a particularly target rich environment full of shrimp mutants and starfish. Be sure to destroy the huge barnacles on top of Bacoon's shell as these are worth 12 hit points.

Normally the Aquas ocean teems with life but the predations of Andross's forces have done severe damage to the planet's ecosystem. Andross had been using bio-engineering techniques to mutate the sea creatures of Aquas into deadly weapons, ensuring that each mindless bio-tech drone has been conditioned to think only one thought, destroy Star Fox or be destroyed. At least three Garoas were sighted by the Star Fox Team during their expedition to investigate Aquas and destroy Bacoon.
