Slippy Toad (スリッピー・トード, Slippy Toad) is a character in the Star Fox series. A childhood friend of Fox McCloud, he has been flying with him for several years as a member of the Star Fox team being their mechanic. He has made a number of appearances in Super Smash Bros. games.

In Super Smash Bros.[edit]

Slippy was considered for inclusion as an alternate costume for Fox, alongside Falco and Peppy.[1]

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

As a background character[edit]

Slippy as he appears in the Corneria Smash Taunt.

Slippy made a brief cameo in Super Smash Bros. Melee, assisting Fox in an event match. He also created a Cloaking Device for Fox and Falco for a mission in the game (though the existence of the cloaking device in the game comes from Perfect Dark, listed as "TOP SECRET" in its trophy description). Slippy also appears in a secret taunt that only Fox and Falco can do on Star Fox stages features dialog between members of Star Fox, including Slippy, Peppy Hare, and Fox/Falco (depending on which fighter initiated the taunt).

Trophy description[edit]

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.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As a background character[edit]

Snake contacting Slippy on his codec.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Slippy and the others can still be contacted via secret taunt on Corneria. However, when the Smash Taunt is performed by Fox, Falco, or Wolf on Lylat Cruise, both Star Fox and Star Wolf will answer the call, sometimes during the same taunt. In addition, when Snake uses his codec on Shadow Moses Island during a battle with Falco, he will unintentionally contact Slippy, who has hacked into Roy Campbell's codec frequency.

Slippy's design in Brawl for when he appears on Lylat Cruise was updated to match his appearance from Star Fox Assault, despite Fox and Falco using their respective designs from Star Fox Command.

Trophy description[edit]

Slippy trophy in Brawl.
A top-notch mechanic with less-than-stellar battle skills. Respected for his talent, he joins the Star Fox team and shows 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.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Slippy once again appears in the Star Fox Smash Taunt on Corneria. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, he appears in the Star Fox Smash Taunt on Orbital Gate Assault, using his Assault appearance. Lyssa Browne, his Star Fox 64 and Star Fox 64 3D voice actress, voices Slippy.

North America This mechanic is a valued team member, analyzing enemy shields and spotting mines. That might seem like a job for a calm, cool soldier, but Slippy's more of the frantic, panicky type. This behavior only annoys the Star Wolf team...right? He and Fox are old classmates and good friends.
Europe This mechanic is a valued team member, and has a knack for analysing shields and spotting mines. That might seem like a job for a calm, cool soldier, but Slippy's exactly the opposite. The Star Wolf team finds him a bit grating, but nobody else thinks that... Right? He graduated from the same school as Fox, and those two are close friends.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a background character[edit]

Slippy reprises his role in the Star Fox Smash Taunts for Corneria, Venom, and Lylat Cruise. As Shadow Moses Island returns along with Snake's Codec Conversations, he reprises his role as a guest character for Falco's conversation.


Slippy also appears as a spirit in World of Light. Being a support spirit, his special ability is "Made of Metal", which turns the user into metal at the start of the match. He is also one of the two spirits that can be used to repair the Great Fox in order to explore the space area.

  • On the name entry screen's random option, one of the randomly generated names is Slippy.
  • In the first three games, one of Fox's alternate costumes is based on Slippy's flight suit from Star Fox 64 while in Smash 4, one of Fox's alternate costumes is based on Slippy's outfit from Star Fox Assault. Falco had a similar costume in Melee and Brawl.
  • Since the dialog for Snake's Codec Conversations is reused between Brawl and Ultimate, Slippy is the only guest character for another universe's Smash Taunt to reprise such role between two games as Palutena's Guidance featured different guest characters between games.
