One small detail from the Star Fox series that often gets overlooked is Star Fox's metal legs. Look at any of the original artwork or promotional materials, and you see Fox, Slippy, Falco, and Peppy all with robotic-looking legs and feet, with ankles too narrow for them to just be boots. They're even present in Smash Bros! But WHY?!? The Internet's working theory has been that the lack of legs allows for greater resistance to G-forces the pilots' bodies go through when performing high-energy combat maneuvers...but is that REALLY true? I intend to find out!

All these people talking about the Star Fox name obviously didn't watch the video. He clearly calls him by Fox McCloud when he is talking about Fox. When referring to the team as a whole, he calls them Star Fox, because that is the team name...

A recent experiment was done (less than a year from this comment) where rats were programmed to respond to beams of light crossing specific nerve cells that forced ‘em to do… something. Now imagine wearing that Hardwear called the NerveGear from “Sword Art Online”

Actually, in star fox zero we are shown that star fox does not need to steer the plane with his feet, in the tutorial you see he just uses two control joysticks.

Over thinking it game theorist. It's just a artists rendering of a futuristic G-suite. That was a long video for something pretty simple. You said it right at the end. They also could have their original animal legs in these suites.

you needed to study more about cardiology, amputation decreases the accumulation of blood, which increases cardiac preload, etc., etc., etc.

I think that Fox is just wearing Boots. Maybe a type boot that helps prevent Blood from Pooling in the feet? Or perhaps maybe they all just happened to loose their legs and got artificial ones? However I think they're just wearing boots is all.

I mean tbh there’s also the fact that he has more metal parts like his three metal bars on his forehead and as you see how far they are ahead of us(tech wise) I think he might also have some electronic vain’s with a possibly gyroscope attached to his robotic legs and metal helmet thing that could move the blood to where he needs it to be.. just sayin

I'm late, but it's a gold fox and a blue falcon. You see, on the Super Nintendo, every other title had an F-Zero reference, as Captain Falcone was practically the system's mascot.

In ww2 there was a pilot that had both legs amputated, he used this to his advantage because now he could handle more G-force without blacking out and could do more advanced maneuvers

FYI an Eagle supports its whole weight on 2 legs, so the 4 legs / weight = problems on only 2 legs wont' apply to the Eagle.

Sueanna 2 个月 前
I'm aware this is an old theory but the whole, they needed amputated to be able to walk like humans thing, doesnt make sense when you consider other characters that dont have metal legs like Crystal from the gamecube version of Starfox. I think this is just a limitation in graphics since one of the clips you showed had him wearing what looked like boots rather than metal legs.

or, and hear me out here.... the leg replacements might also include a machine designed to put pressure on the circulatory system while flying and help the blood get moved throughout the body faster. Kinda like a second mechanical heart?

In my Star Fox movie script, James "Fox" McCloud Jr. and the rest of the team lost their legs in some tragic accident. Fox and his father James were simply born without legs, Slippy had his amputated after injuring them in a freak lab accident, Falco was a war veteran and lost his legs when he tried to defuse a bomb (he still saved everyone), and Peppy lost his legs after crashing his Arwing on Corneria while escaping Andross after Pigma betrayed him and James.

So Darth Vader could handle like 10 g forces because of his lost limbs, technology, and the force? Also, I think that early stages had a hard time making the silver boots, and that’s why the legs look so weird. Also, maybe they lost their legs due to injury? Rare coincidence, but possible
