Fox McCloud is the titular main protagonist of the Star Fox franchise of video games and is an expert space pilot as well as a skilled fighter in both armed and unarmed combat. He leads the titular Star Fox team and is pitted largely against the forces of Andross, Fox McCloud's father's presumed death and mother's death. His weapon of choice is a blaster. Fox also carries a reflector to protect him from projectiles. He flies around space in an Arwing. He also has an arch-rival, Wolf O'Donnell, who thinks he's a better mercenary than Fox.
He was voiced by Dan Owsen, Mike West, Steve Malpass, Jim Walker, and Joe Zieja in English, and by Shinobu Satouchi, Kenji Nojima and Takashi Ōhara in Japanese.
Fox has green eyes which sometimes appear to be blue, orange-brown fur, and his golden-brown white-highlighted hair is cut into a crew cut. The rest of his skin is a cream-colored tone. He additionally has a bushy white-tipped tail which appears to be very short in Star Fox 64 and Command, implying that it might have been cut off at a certain point. Fox is of medium/short height and medium weight, but this is contradicted in the Super Smash Bros. games, where he is a mid-sized target, but additionally very light. Before Star Fox Adventures, Fox's eye color was inconsistently erratic. In-game, it was yellow-orange in Star Fox, but blue in puppets and most artwork (and infrequently green). It is also blue in Star Fox 2, which was originally in development for the SNES. It was black in Star Fox 64 (along with the other characters), and given a consistent green afterwards.
Fox is an overall vigorous and loyal leader. Albeit scarcely of a cocky rogue with a propensity to disregard rules and regulations (and to repine if he's not being paid enough), he is ultimately, according to Star Fox Adventures, "pure of heart".
Fox is shown to be very protective of his friends, as visually perceived in the games, of his team. Fox's countenance is always either a stoic look or cocky smile. In contrast to his personality and traits portrayed in Adventures, Star Fox: Assault depicts Fox as a professional and decisive mercenary.
Fox speaks in a rather youthful voice in all games, but the style and personality differs with each voice actor. Considering the multiple similarities between the Star Fox games and the Star Wars franchise, Fox's personality and character is similar to Luke Skywalker.
The Nintendo Power Official Player's Guide for Star Fox Assault even compared Fox with Luke Skywalker.
Fox McCloud is a pilot, combatant, adventurer, and the leader of the Star Fox team. Fox is the son of James McCloud, who edified him throughout his childhood to never give up. Fox McCloud was a cadet at the Cornerian Defense Army Academy when he heard the news that his father, James McCloud, had met a violent end at the hands of the twisted genius, Andross. The senior McCloud had been betrayed by his own wingman, Pigma Dengar, and delivered into a deadly trap from which there was seemingly no escape. Only James's wingman, Peppy Hare, managed to limp home in his badly damaged starfighter. As the only survivor of the original Star Fox Team, Peppy insisted that the young Fox take on the leadership of the group and form a new team of pilots. Thrust into the leadership role that he wasn't prepared for, Fox recruited the hot-tempered Falco Lombardi and the mechanical genius Slippy Toad to make up the new Star Fox Team. For a price, this crack group will fight against any threat to the Cornerian star system. Although it may appear that the Star Fox Team is motivated only by financial gain, it will only accept missions that serve to uphold justice.

Fox is a playable character in the Super Smash Bros games.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Fox appeared to shoot down Meta Knights ship but was shot down himself and later saved Diddy Kong from Rayquaza, who accompanied him as Diddy needed help with saving Donkey Kong from Bowser and the Subspace army. He also meets Princess Peach and Princess Zelda. He later fought Tabuu and helped defeat him once and for all.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, he shouts "Don't let a single one get away!" when he along with the rest of the fighters fought Galeem but was vaporized. He must be defeated to be unlocked.
