Most Annoying Character
“Do a barrel roll!” Thanks Peppy, I will! “You worry about your own hide.” Well alright Falco, fine, but hey at least you can take care of yourself. “Fox get this guy off me!” Really Slippy?! Again? That’s pretty much the third time this level. “Don’t forget me!” Oh I wish I could Slippy… I wish I could.
Slippy the Toad, practically the Jar Jar Binks of his generation. This high pitched annoying little Toad might be the only bad thing I have to say about the classic Star Fox 64. Even as a wide eyed happy child I still realized how annoying Slippy could be every time he opened his digital mouth. I struggle to find a positive thing to say about this character, he is consistently the one in trouble, whining, calling out for help and generally just sounding like a small child who happens to be flying next to you. Think I’m exaggerating? According to Fandom that loud toad had 100 quotes, granted that wasn’t the most out of the group but it sure felt like it.
I’m not sure there will ever be a satisfying answer to why there had to be a character in the squad who was always in trouble, if you didn’t get your medal for that level, you could probably blame it on the weak link of the toad. Overall this character has an annoying voice, is dead weight and his dialogue is cringe worthy, this isn’t even twenty-eight year old me saying this, it’s anyone who’s ever played the beautiful game of Star Fox 64, imagine what could have been if Slippy wasn’t the fourth member?
Do you think Slippy is the most annoying character? No? Then who is? Let me know in the comments below!
