Slippy - Team Star Fox's most under appreciated member

#1 Posted by BoG (5184 posts) -

Everyone loves to hate Slippy. "He's lame and annoying!" They say.
I, personally, really enjoy slippy. He's a fun, charming Frog with a witty sense of humor. Much more interesting then that wannabe Krystal.
Who else is a fan of this frog?

I too think Slippy is cool and gets a crazy amount of undeserved hate.

He just always seems like the first team member to need help, ya know? I don't hate him, but he's usually not that helpful.

Slippy is my favore character

To be fair, I only hate him when hes getting into trouble again and again and again. That's why I don't hate him in SF: Adventures, this time he actually helps you out w/o becoming a pain.

I was just about to post the exact same topic - 8 months later. But yeah, other than his annoying voice and lack of piloting skill, he's probably as important as Fox himself. Think about it, if he didn't analyze the shields of bosses in Starfox 64, would you even get past the first level? Nope.

I think he's hilarious!

Slippy is like the annoying friend you had when you were in school who would follow your group of friends around and invite himself to all your parties and everything your doing despite no-one liking him. Every friendship group has one (and if you're sitting there thinking that your group didn't, then you were him, YOU ARE SLIPPY!!!!!!!!).

Without Slippy, there's be no Landmaster, and without the landmaster there'd be no awesome train level. Also SSBB would be more tolerable.

I liked the Star Fox characters better on SNES.  Those funny sounds they made.  Wa-wa-wa-wing damage

Slippy lured me into bed once. Best night of my life . . .


. . . until the morning after, when I was told Slippy is a man.

I think Slippy is a pretty cool guy. eh does a barrel roll and doesn't afraid of anything...

@BoG:  On the contrary, I think everyone likes Slippy.  He can't contribute much, but he gives 110% of what he's got.

He's alright, but definitely unable to carry his weight in the battlefield, which can make him annoying. Still... his brains come in handy for the Star Fox team, and I certainly agree he's much more interesting than Krystal.

I appreciate Peppy less. Slippy is okay, but always annoyed me back o the 64.
