The name "Slippy" in his name is a colloquial name to "Slippery" that was chose by Dylan Cuthbert in order to represente his "clumsy nature". The original four members of the Star Fox Team are based on the staff for the first game. Slippy in particular is based on the assistant director, Yamada.
Appearences in the Star Fox seriesEdit
Slippy's debut was in the 1993 Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) action game Star Fox. After antagonist Andross launches an attack against the planet Corneria, the Star Fox team resolves to stop him. Slippy's design is that of an anthropomorphic green frog (despite his name). He is a member of the Star Fox team of mercenaries. However, as Slippy is relatively unskilled at flying, he is instead serving as the "brains" of the team, developing weapons, and performing mechanic work. Slippy serves as a sidekick to skilled teammates Fox McCloud and Falco Lombardi. He designed the "blaster" and "reflector" weapons that they use.
