|~ Peppy Hare (start of a meme).|
Peppy Hare is a character from Star Fox, and he is the elder figure of the team. He first appeared in Star Fox for the SNES in 1993. He was originally part of the original Star Fox team along with James McCloud, and Pigma Dengar, until the latter betrayed the team, leading James McCloud to be killed by Andross.
In the English version, he was voiced by the late Rick May in Star Fox 64, Chris Seavor in Star Fox Adventures, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Henry Dardenne in Star Fox: Assault, Dex Manley in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Jaz Adams in Star Fox 64 3D, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, Star Fox Zero, and Mark Whitten in Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins. In the Japanese version, he was voiced by Tomohisa Asō in Star Fox 64, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Star Fox Assault, and Kunpei Sakamoto in Star Fox 64 3D, Star Fox Zero.
Peppy Hare is a veteran of the original Star Fox team led by his former classmate James McCloud, acting as a father figure to the current Star Fox team led by Fox McCloud. Since the end of the Lylat Wars, he rarely climbs into the cockpit of an Arwing, preferring instead to serve as the team's navigator and general advisor. By Command, he left the team to become a general in the Cornerian Army.
Peppy appears as a gray haired rabbit with noticeable buckteeth. His general appearance hasn't changed much over the years, but age has caused him to appear slightly older, as he has gained glasses and his ears began to droop. He also gained a bushier moustache and bushier eyebrows.
In Game History
Peppy Hare was a member of the original Star Fox led by James McCloud. General Pepper had sent them to the planet Venom to quiet down possible threats from the exiled Dr. Andross. When the team reached there, it was found that the third member of the team, Pigma Dengar, was a traitor on Andross's payroll. James and Peppy were imprisoned, but managed to escape. Though Peppy was successful in escaping, he did so with numerous injuries and James forced him to leave alone and was supposedly killed by Andross. Peppy barely limped home to tell James's son, Fox, of his father's fate. When Fox was old enough, he took up his father's role as leader of the Star Fox team and Peppy, with Fox's friends Slippy Toad and Falco Lombardi joined the new team.
- Peppy's role in Star Fox is similar to Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars.
