Troikas are amphibious lifeforms, native to Zoness that once lived a peacefully on the tropical vacation world. However, Andross' bio-weapon has polluted the once beautiful oceans and transformed the beautiful sea creatures into hideous monstrosities. Troikas were genetically engineered to grow thousands of times their normal size to throw bursts at any star fighters that pass by and each mindless bio-tech drone has been conditioned to think only one thought, destroy Star Fox or be destroyed.


Following their mutation, Troikas became flower, shaped monstrosities.

Enemy Recon

Grown to thousands of times their normal size, these genetically enhanced fish will leap out of the sea and fire spiraling blasts of energy. Charged lasers or bombs will be your best bet.

Search and destroy

The surest way to destroy a Troika is with a bomb, and then you'll get a bomb in return.
