Enemy shield analyzed!
—Slippy Toad

Slippy Toad is a major character in the Star Fox series. He's a childhood friend of Fox who serves as the inventor and mechanic of the Star Fox crew, and has been flying alongside him for several years.

Bad Qualities

  1. To begin with, he's infamous for his constant annoyance, especially from his voice, as it sounds so grating and annoying. This is very notable in Star Fox 64/3D.
  2. The irritation caused by his high pitched feminine voice in Star Fox 64/3D (this is because his voice acting is provided by female actress Lyssa Browne). This has led to a common misconception from players and critics that Slippy is a female.
  3. Slippy's lower piloting skills have also been largely negatively received due to the distractions his constant SOS pleading causes a player's gameplay, especially as every ally must survive in order to obtain a mission's medal.
  4. Slippy's inexperience and lack of talent while flying gets him into trouble more often than any other team member, for which Falco taunts him mercilessly. 
  5. Out of all the character designs in Star Fox franchise, Slippy's is the weakest and the least visually appealing, to the point that it looks out of place.

Good Qualities

  1. His inventions, from the iconic Arwing, Landmaster, and Blue-Marine to the Reflector and Blaster, as well as displaying the boss’s shield gauge at a moment’s notice have helped the Star Fox Team prevail over the enemy, making Slippy a major contribution to the Star Fox team's success. 
  2. His later VAs would do a better job at voicing him, like Chris Seavor and even Lyssa Browne herself.
  3. Later on, in games like Star Fox Adventures and Assault, he became less obnoxious and more likable.
  4. He still cares about people. Besides, without him, the Star Fox franchise wouldn't be better.
  5. He is actually very cute and adorable.

Reception

  1. Slippy Toad has become one of Nintendo's most criticized characters over the years by both game players and critics, with a majority of the criticisms going towards his constant annoyance. IGN has even called him an "annoying croaking pest".
