Your take on: James McCloud


Asper Sarnoff

Recommended Posts

The father of our hero. Lost in action before the games started, leaving his friend and wingmate Peppy Hare to raise his son. Dead, or is he?

What's your take on James? Do you like him, or dislike him? And why do you do so? And everything else related to this character.

I like him. And I would like him even more

if Nintendo actually explained more about him

in the past. I mean, sure, he is his 'undead' father.

(I call him 'un'dead because he is supposedly dead,

yet comes every now and then.)

...But, what about his life? Was he a good father?

  Were Fox and James as close as we think?

  To name a few questions.

I really like him. :D And I like how Nintendo has kept his fate ambiguous (whether he died or is still alive). That works with the story. I'd like to see him used well again. Perhaps though the next game could include some flashbacks to Peppy's younger days and we could learn more about his life and such. that would be interesting.

The fact that you can play as him, yet no one says -anything- about him in Command just makes me laugh. I have no idea what they were thinking, but it's fairly hilarious. I like to believe he's undead just so I can say that there is a playable zombie character in the StarFox series.

James is so cool he can't even decide what level of existense he's on.

Anyway, I wanna see more backstory with him. Life with Vixy, Peppy, and Pigma. His relationship with Andross (if any), how he raised Fox. A prequel game featuring his Starfox team would be cool, too.

Fun fact: had James not died, the debt he was put into for commisioning the Greatfox would have taken 40 years to pay off.

James still lives!  He's just suspended in a parallel dimension.  He can make an appearance in our dimension, but he always resembles a space whale.

Oh, and mandatory fanboyish squee...  James X Peppy are <3

(Please don't count that against my "Dermot talks about gay stuff too much" record. :lol:)

Yes, you are too much of a romance fan. There -is- more to life (and characters) than their love and sex, you know.

I said nothing about their sex! o.o Why does everyone keep going straight to that. XD That's, like...<1% of life. X3 And not appropriate discussion outside the mature board. :P

C'mon, let me have my regular G-rated fanboy squeeing. :lol:

You said alot about Wolf being kinky, and that's sex related more than romance, especially considering Wolf has the romantic capacity of a brick wall with attitude.... :P

Sex appeal. XD The kinky ends there in this forum. X3 Besides, he is kinky and gaydar-tripping - all my friends agree. X3 But we're not talking about Wolf in this thread. :3

Anyway, I've had my squee. XD

Sex appeal is still under the subject of sex, you dope :P

Besides I -disagree- with you but that's mostly because one day I will have succeeded at burning the idea of Assault out of my mind.

As for James, I don't really see much of a romantic link between him and Peppy. Even if they are both single men with children they likely raised together at the same time following the young deaths of their wives, the way Peppy speaks of James is more in the tone of a long lost friend than a long gone lover.

also unfortunate implications from "becoming more like your Father" when Peppy talks to Fox

Oh, I thought when you said "sex" you meant "sexual intercourse".  "sex" in its traditional definition is simply the male/female distinction and nature of the genders.  It means "division" in Latin.

Besides, I just say "James X Peppy are <3" for the sheer hell of it!

:D :D :D :D :lol: *squee*

*bounces off the walls like a bouncy ball*

If I meant intercourse, you would have known it.

I will decide if it's good enough reason or not. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I like him, it's too bad he got killed, I like that his ghost showed up in SF64. I wish I had him for a dad :(

Same here.  :(

Though sometimes I think he may still be alive in some way...

:cool: "Fox!  You must go to the Degeba system!"  :P

Confusing at times.

Now uh...are you really dead or are you a F-Zero racer who doesn't seem to understand Fox's feelings?

Technically Fox is still a child when James is a racer pilot.

Technically Fox is still a child when James is a racer pilot.

but it does raise the question "Alive or Dead?"

in 64 he vanished into thin air after you escaped the explosion

in adventures you "hear" his voice talking to you,

in assault, the apparoid queen brought up James,  which is weird because they would have had to some into contact with James to get his data

and in command he decides to fly in when fighting the Angler Emperor on venom....

so again...the story say he is dead....BUT...he keeps poping up...

personally i love the mystery of James McCloud :P
