Wolf O'Donnell, Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Wolf O'Donnell is the longtime rival of Fox McCloud, who appears in the Star Fox series of games, making his debut in Star Fox 64. He is the leader of the Star Wolf team, which is his equivalent to Fox's Star Fox team. He made a short cameo in the beginning intro of Super Smash Bros. Melee. In the intro, Wolf is seen in a space dogfight with Fox. Wolf later appears as an unlockable playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Wolf is one of the unlockable characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He is both the biggest and heaviest of the Star Fox characters. He is not as fast as Fox and Falco, but his attacks are more powerful. His aerial speed is better than that of Fox's and Falco's. He can be unlocked by having him join the party in The Subspace Emissary, playing 400 Brawl matches, or by clearing Boss Battles with either Fox or Falco.

Though his special moves are based on the basic design of Fox's special moves, they have been altered for Wolf, with new effects for all of them. All his standard moves are different as well. Wolf's neutral special move is the Blaster, though unlike Fox and Falco's the gun has a claw-like extension that damages nearby opponents. His side special is Wolf Flash, which gives Wolf some vertical height and has a meteor smash at the end. His up special is Fire Wolf, in which Wolf instantly charges in the direction held on the control stick, the air surrounding him damaging opponents. His down special is Reflector, which has a different visual effect than the other characters' Reflectors and increases the speed of reflected items and projectiles rather than power. His Final Smash is the Landmaster, his version having more firepower and sports Wolfen coloration.

In the Subspace Emissary, Wolf doesn't play a major role and does not interact with other video game characters, but can join the player's party after beating Tabuu, along with Jigglypuff and Toon Link. The player must enter a special Red Door in The Ruins stage, which will take them to Lylat Cruise. The player sees Wolf flying his Wolfen. He then jumps out of the Wolfen, and lands on the cruise. Wolf strikes a pose and then rushes at the player attacking him or her. The player must then defeat Wolf in a one-life stock battle. After defeat, he joins the party.

Although Wolf is never in a cutscene that shows both him and another character, he does seem to stare at the person who challenges him, which can be considered as Wolf breaking the fourth wall.

Website bio[edit]

The Star Fox team’s greatest rival is Team Star Wolf. Sitting at the head of this group is Wolf O’Donnell.

Wolf fights with his razor-sharp claws in a style that’s downright feral. His high risk, high return special moves are a blast to use.

Snake's codec[edit]

  • Snake: Colonel, there's a guy in here who looks like a wolf...
  • Colonel: You mean the fighter named Wolf.
  • Snake: "Wolf". Real imaginative name...
  • Colonel: He's the leader of a ragtag team called "Star Wolf". They're the longtime rivals of Star Fox.
  • Snake: Kind of strange for a wolf to have friends, isn't it?
  • Colonel: Well, I don't think he works well with others. I suppose they're more like hangers-on than actual comrades. But he's a remarkable pilot. And his ship, the "Wolfen", is no slouch, either.
  • Snake: But this is hand-to-hand combat, Colonel. He's out of his element.
  • Colonel: Careful, Snake. Those claws of his aren't just for show.
