Falco Lombardi is an expert pilot and a friend of Fox. Falco resembles a falcon. He is named after both Falco, an Austrian musician and Carlo Lombardi, special effects artist in Hollywood. Falco is voiced by Hisao Egawa in the Japanese versions of the series, Bill Johns in the English version of Star Fox 64, Ben Cullum in Star Fox Adventures, Mike Madeoy in Star Fox: Assault, and Dex Manley in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Falco often joins and leaves the Star Fox team throughout the series of games and is seen as somewhat of a sidekick to Fox as they are very close. After Star Fox 64, Falco leaves the team, because of boredom and tiredness (though also because of the events of Star Fox: Farewell, Beloved Falco, see below.), but returns at the end of Star Fox Adventures. During the final battle against Andross in Adventures, Falco comes to Fox's rescue. Leon Powalski of the Star Wolf team is considered to be his rival.
His long absence from the team is chronicled in the Nintendo comic Star Fox: Farewell, Beloved Falco, which was bundled with Star Fox Adventures in Japan. In this comic Falco gets a call for help from Katt so he heads out, and Fox follows soon after. At the end of the comic Falco decides to stay with Katt and Fox goes back to the rest of the team with out him. Falco has also appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a playable character.
In Super Smash Bros Brawl, Falco is another pretty powerful force. His speed, kick reflector, D-Throw Chain Grab and Stun Lasers make him a perfect candidate to overwhelm anyone in the right hands. His aerial game & ground game are top notch so you will want to be on guard in both scenarios.
Member's opinions on Falco LombardiEdit
- Resurgence thinks the blue bird of death in Brawl is an even greater force then Fox.
- Sonic prefers Falco over Fox, still prefers Wolf over both, even if he admittedly thinks Falco didn't really deserve to get in Melee or Brawl.
