Andross (アンドルフ, Andorf), is the foremost villain in the Star Fox series. He appears as two separate trophies in Super Smash Bros. Melee and an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. 4, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Andross makes two separate appearances as trophies:
Star Fox's archenemy. Whether it's a metallic manifestation of Andross or just a hologram is unknown, but from its outward appearance, it's safe to assume that it's not the fiend's true form. Andross occasionally sucks matter in and then violently exhales, sending out a cloud of metal tiles. Its eyes are its weak points.
(Star Fox, 03/93)
This incarnation of Andross was so big as to be ridiculous, but it at least appeared to be a living being. Andross was once a brilliant scientist, but was banished from the galaxy for his dangerous experiments. From the planet Venom, he readied his troops and directed his sword of vengeance toward the Lylat System.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the original SNES version of Andross appears as an Assist Trophy, and as thus, a collectible trophy.
When Andross appears out of an assist trophy, he floats up off the screen and flies towards the back of the stage and spits polygon panels out of his mouth. Characters hit by the panels will take around 12% damage, while the tiles go right through the one who summoned him. Andross permanently appears during the event match Shadow of Andross, making it more difficult for the human players as Fox and Falco to KO Wolf.
A brilliant scientist formerly employed by the Cornerian Army. He took his research too far, and the disastrous results labeled him a Level 1 offender, resulting in his banishment to the nearby planet Venom. After building a base and declaring himself emperor, he swore he would rule the Lylat system. Thanks to Team Star Fox's heroism, the madman has yet to achieve this.

Andross continues his panel-spitting routine in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He is also one of the few Assist Trophies unable to be defeated.
This version of Andross first appeared in Star Fox. Star Fox used filled 3D polygons for the items and bosses in the game, which meant that the bosses were constructed with 3D polygons, including Andross who was the final boss. Andross' main method of attack was to inhale and spit out "panels" of polygons at the player. In Brawl and SSB4, Andross is designed very similarly to how he was designed with 3D polygons in Star Fox. Andross also attacks the same way he did in Star Fox.
