Universe: Star Fox
Debut: Star Fox 64 (1997)
Affiliations: Team Star Wolf, Andross
Background: Wolf O’Donnell is the leader of team Star Wolf, a band of galactic mercenaries. He was hired by Andross to take out Star Fox during the Lylat wars. After failing to do so, Wolf retreated to a hideout in the Sargasso Space Station where he recruited criminals from across the galaxy. When the Aparoids invaded Corneria he rescued fox and aided him in retaliating against the alien force. Though he is Fox’s rival he begrudgingly respects fox as a leader and tactician.
Reasoning: He may look more like Fox than Falco, and may not have been in SSB as long but he is a villain character which they need more of in SSB and he was not as much of a clone as Falco.
Probability: Well, if we go with the fan favorite it looks as though Wolf will be replaced instead of Falco. Chances of him returning seem fairly slim.
Thoughts: I like to play as wolf. He feels different from Fox, despite having similar moves and the same Final Smash. I highly believe he or Falco will not be seen in SSB4, and I am afraid because Falco looks different and has been around longer that he will be kept instead of Wolf, which I highly disagree with. No matter who stays, be it Falco or Wolf they need to be made less of a clone and have unique abilities and especially have a different Final Smash. My thought is Falco goes away, Fox can stay as is, and Wolf has him team come blasting in to help him and talking as they do so for his Final Smash.
