Peppy Hare is a founding member of the legendary Star Fox team. He served with leader James McCloud and wingmate Pigma Dengar. After the former's death and the latter's betrayal of the team, Peppy joined the new Star Fox team, consisting of Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi, and Slippy Toad. An experienced pilot, he has learned many tricks in his years of flying, and is also very knowledgeable about Andross's forces, since he once had to escape captivity at their hands. He was good friends with James McCloud, who was Fox's father. Even though Peppy is older than all the other Star Fox team members, he declined the leadership role and insisted that the younger Fox McCloud take over the team after James was slain by Andross. After Pigma's betrayal and James' capture, Peppy narrowly escaped to return to Corneria to inform Fox of his father's fate. Ever since then, Peppy serves as Fox's mentor and frequently gives Fox instructions and advice throughout the course of the games.
Plays like: He fights like a magic-less ganondorf, slow and weighed down with age, but still capable of putting up a fight every once in a while due to his combat experience allowing him to think about how to approach each fighter.
B: Blaster - Just a Standard, nuthin special Blaster... Because Duh.
up+B: Jet Pack - It's A Jetpack Peppy uses to get around his Ship, That's it. Oh, you were expecting a Fire Fox-esque move? He's Old! Get over it!
side+B: Missile Launcher - We can give him a Missile Launcher for being an example as to how hard Sakurai can nerf a Star Fox character.
down+B: Impact Mine - Picks an impact mine from his pocket and can place it just about anywhere, with varying types of explosions including the rare Smart Bomb Mine which can stick to midair like a bumper before someone's touch detonates it.
Final Smash: Great Fox Cannon - Here's something that won't remind people of the inevitability of Death, A Giant Laser, Courdacy of the Great Fox!
Why Him?: Just like with Slippy, He deserves to be in Crusade to complete the Star Fox Team. Besides we need more seasoned vets in Crusade.
