Star Fox


Slippy's transmission image in Star Fox.

Slippy's debut in the Star Fox series is in Star Fox. Slippy tended to get himself chased by the enemy more often than the other two pilots, and had a croaking verbal tic that was removed in later appearances.

Instruction booklet description

While Slippy may seem to be timid and passive at times, he always keeps a positive mind set about things. The scrapes he gets himself in may add some comic relief to the dangerous situations you find yourself in during your mission.

Star Fox 64/3D


Slippy in Star Fox 64.

Slippy's role in Star Fox 64 is the same as it was in Star Fox. He is more valuable, as he can analyze the shield of all bosses except Andross, but only if he is on the battlefield to do so. Slippy is still the least-skilled pilot of the team and is often chased down by enemy ships, but it is necessary to keep his ship functioning to make fighting bosses more precise. Also in Star Fox 64, Slippy's minor rivalry with Falco is shown, as the two make snide remarks about each other. It is also revealed in the game that Slippy is a rival to Andrew Oikonny, as the two target each other in the occasional dogfights. Slippy's transmission and base color is green. Slippy is a playable character in V.S mode by connecting a controller to the fourth socket.

The excitable amphibian member of the Star Fox Team, Slippy may seem like a hyper-doofus, but he has excellent mechanical know-how. Slippy specialized in engineering at the Cornerian Academy, and learned a lot from his father, Beltino Toad, who is Director of Engineering at Space Dynamics Co. Ltd. As a member of the Star Fox Team, Slippy has invented a wide variety of gadgets and vehicles.

He's the most energetic and positive member of the team, although sometimes Slippy can go a little overboard. While he's not the greatest pilot, he compensates with his mechanical skills.

Strategy Guide description

Slippy Toad brings enthusiasm and mechanical know-how to the team. As a flyer, though, he leaves something to be desired. In fact, he seems to get into trouble whenever you let him out of your sight. But it's better to have him along, in spite of his failings.

Nintendo Power Trading Card

Trading Cards

Talk about upbeat and positive! Slippy can take the worst of situations and make them seem like they are not so bad. The diminutive toad has the keen knack of being able to analyze an enemy's weaknesses. He is usually correct in his assessments, too. Slippy is not the best pilot in the Lylat System. He frequently takes questionable attack routes and often winds up getting himself into trouble. However, Fox knows that when he and the team run into a menacing creature, he would rather have Slippy along than now.

Star Fox Adventures

Slippy Star Fox Adventures

Slippy in "Adventures".

In Star Fox Adventures, Slippy served the same helpful role he did in the past games. He can give advice and hints in different areas, which would help Fox find his way through riddles and mazes. In official artwork, Slippy is shown holding a screwdriver, but he doesn't use it in the game. During the events of Adventures, Slippy, Peppy, and ROB 64 all reside in the Great Fox and aid Fox from there. At the end of the game, Slippy and Fox hi-five to demonstrate their long standing friendship since their childhood.

Instruction Booklet description

Recently Slippy Toad has been devoting a lot of time to Cornerian Weapons R&D, though he continues to work with his good friends in the Star Fox team. His upgrades to ROB and the Arwing prove invaluable.

Star Fox: Assault

Slippy Assault Ending

Slippy in the ending cutscene.

Slippy appeared again in Star Fox: Assault. His part in this game is the same as before, and it is revealed that Slippy is one of the head engineers for the Star Fox team's arsenal of craft, including the Landmaster and the Arwing. The game also introduces his father, Beltino Toad, who Slippy himself is surprised to see. Slippy's rivalry with Falco seems to have mellowed out, but the two still make unnecessary comments about each other as they converse. Besides his missions in an Arwing, he also once participated alongside Fox in on-foot combat at the Sargasso Space Zone, where he held his own alongside Fox in fighting off the Ruffians.

Instruction booklet description

Slippy's not much of a fighter, but he's an excellent mechanical engineer. He fulfills the role of team mascot and calms frayed nerves on the battlefield.
—Star Fox: Assault; Instruction Booklet


Slippy is available as a playable character in Assault's multiplayer mode. He has high Stamina (second best behind Wolf) and the best Landmaster Skill of all characters in the game, but poor speed. He also has the second best Jump and blastter charging speed, behind Peppy, but runs slightly faster. His preferred weapon in Assault is the Grenade.

Health ★★★★
Speed ★★
Jump ★★★★
Arwing Skill ★★
Landmaster Skill ★★★★★
Pilot Skill ★★★
Special Charge speed [for his blaster] is twice as fast as others.

Star Fox Command

Slippy & Amanda

Slippy, with his fiancee Amanda.

In Star Fox Command, Slippy is still a helpful character as he was in the previous games. He now pilots his own ship, the Bullfrog, and has found a love interest of his own. In one of the games endings, Slippy forms a family with Amanda and his eldest son becomes a member of the Star Fox team under the leadership of Marcus McCloud. In a future time period, Slippy tells him numerous grandchildren of the Star Fox team's legacy. Slippy later marries Amanda and has numerous children, inexplicably, one of which joins the new Star Fox (albeit in another ending). In one scenario, he ended up brainwashed by Octoman, forcing the team to contend with him while at the same time stopping Octoman, though his brainwashing wore off after Octoman was defeated, with him being unaware of what happened. Slippy then joined the team to make up for what he unwittingly did.

In the Super Smash Bros. series

In the first three Super Smash Bros. games, one of Fox's alternate costumes is based off of Slippy's outfit from Star Fox 64. Falco also has an alternate costume resembling Slippy's outfit from Star Fox 64 in Melee and Brawl. In Smash 4, one of Fox's alternate costumes is based off of Slippy's outfit from Star Fox: Assault.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Slippy made a brief cameo in Super Smash Bros. Melee, assisting Fox in an Event Match titled respectively Slippy's Invention. He created a cloaking device for Fox and Falco to use during that event. Although Slippy is the supposed inventor of the Cloaking Device, its game listings in Trophy mode don't show that it has any relation to the Star Fox series. Slippy can also appear if the character (as either Fox or Falco) does a secret taunt (done by alternatively tapping the left and right buttons on the control pad) on the Corneria or Venom stages.

Slippy Trophy Melee
Star Fox / Starwing
Slippy Toad is the mechanical genius behind most of the Star Fox team's new weapons and technology, and just lately he's been spending the bulk of his time in Research and Development. He's also a competent pilot, but his enthusiasm tends to outweigh his technical flight skills. He and Fox have been friends ever since their school days.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Slippy also makes a cameo appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He, along with Krystal, Peppy Hare, Panther Caroso, and Leon Powalski, with Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi and Wolf O'Donnell, occasionally, will make a few comments in a secret taunt (unlike in Melee, it's done by doing the "down" taunt for about one frame of time) in the Lylat Cruise stage (he can appear again in the Past Stage Corneria as well. It is revealed in one of the messages that Slippy can relate to Leon.

Codec Conversation with Solid Snake

On the Metal Gear stage Shadow Moses Island, whenever Snake tries to gather information on Falco (the person he attempted to call was implied from the frequency to be Colonel Roy Campbell), Slippy will intercept and tell Snake about Falco instead. In this conversation, it is revealed that Slippy designed the reflector and blaster weapons Fox and Falco use in the games. This also makes Slippy the only Star Fox character, and the only character overall, to be interacted in all secret taunts.


Slippy As Seen In Snake's Smash Taunt.

  • Snake: This is Snake...
  • Slippy: Copy, Snake! This is Slippy!
  • Snake: Whaa--! Who is this? What are you, some kind of frog?!
  • Slippy: Easy there, buddy! Just thought I'd hop on the wireless and give you a holler. Don't get mad!
  • Snake: Hacked right into my channel, huh...
  • Slippy: But I'm not there to mess nothin' up. Don't worry.
  • Snake: (groans) ...
  • Slippy: Just so ya know, Falco uses a Blaster and Reflector that I designed, just like Fox does. But Falco will kick his Reflector and send it flyin' around. Just showin' off, if you ask me.
  • Snake: No reason a weapon can't have more than one use. In fact, I'd say it's versatility shows how well you designed it.
  • Slippy: Hey, maybe so! I feel all fuzzy now! Thanks, Snake!
  • Snake: Maybe next time we meet, you can design me a weapon...

Slippy Toad Random
Slippy Toad - Brawl Trophy
A top-notch mechanic with less-than-stellar battle skills. Respected for his talent, he joins the Star Fox team and his mechanical genius in everything from vehicle maintenance to weapons development. Slippy often holds the team back with his clumsiness but makes up for it with his likeable personality and morale-boosting presence.

  • Star Fox / Starwing (SNES)
  • Star Fox Assault (GCN)

Note: The Trophy erroneously implies that he's poor at combat. While he isn't good with an Arwing, Assault reveals that he is decent at on-foot combat, and he is the one character to excel at driving a Landmaster in the same game's multiplayer mode.

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U

Slippy appears in the fourth Super Smash Bros. title as a trophy. His artwork is captured from Star Fox 64 3D, while the pose is taken from the 3DS's menu screen. It implies that his nervous behaviour only annoys the Star Wolf team, which is incorrect, for his clumsiness has shown to annoy his entire team, even Fox. During the new Smash Taunts, Slippy calls the fighters "our new friends" but prays they don't step on his Arwing's G-Diffuser.

Other Appearances

Star Fox 2


Slippy as he would have appeared in Star Fox 2.

Star Fox 2 would have been Slippy's second official appearance, but the game was canceled to make way for the (delayed) Nintendo 64. He appears similarly to his first appearance, but colored green rather than grey in his portrait.

WarioWare: Smooth Moves

Slippy appears in his SNES look with the rest of the team in the boss microgame of 9-Volt and 18-Volt's stages, shouting out piloting tips and encouragement.
