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!

I wonder what it feels like to run or jump on prosthetic legs. Is the shock greater than on natural legs? Lesser? I know some prosthetics are designed for running and jumping specifically...

In the video it was covered that you get no direct advantage of getting blood from your heart to your brain by amputating your legs, but what about the recovery period? You would have less blood, therefore less total volume of liquid that needs to be shifted, from your legs back to your heard over a shorter distance. Would your recovery back to a normal blood circulation level be faster? Sure this wouldn't help in a single maneuver which incorporates high G exposure over a long period of time (passing out before you get to the recovery period) but in a scenario, where you have constant short exposures in an interval fashion over a longer time period, this could increase the amount of oxygen your brain gets significantly.

Hey Game Theorists, the answer is more simple than you think. The biggest risk someone can die from when they are sitting for long periods of time and not being active are DVT's (Deep Vein Thromboses) from the legs. Maybe to compensate for long missions like underwater ones, or going to the center of a planet and back, or having to come out of a plane and fight in a dino world...maybe not having legs to give you DVT's is a better option...on top of super human speed while carrying a rocket launcher...

I totally get why legs would be removed for the space travel.. But this theory was recently debunked by Nintendo when they were asked about it. I really liked this theory.

I hate to be that guy, but Bater kinda proves it The reason it helps to withstand high Gs is due to the fact of certain maneuvers forcing blood to rush away from your head So no, science doesn't go against it

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.
