Personally, Panther was a nice add in Assault, since he replaced Pigma as the 3rd wingman of the Star Wolf Team. I can't take him very serious when I encounter them in Assault nor in Command, but though he kind of is an 'romantical idiot character', he sure has a bit of a charm. Well, not that I would support guys that love to play dumb games with woman, but he is a bit outstanding with this behaviour, and come on, every bad side needs to have an good looking but heartbreaking member that you can love or hate. This is the perfect role for Panther. But otherwise... he's a bit... useless... xD not wanting to offend any Panther Caluroso fans here, but we all can say that this guy or this girl is a master pilot and gets beaten down so easely. From the Concept Arts I saw from Assault, he kinda reminded me a bit of Buzz Lightyear with the helmet on... lmao!
Well said! After all, Pigma was gross, selfish, and a degenerate coward like Wayne Knight's typical characters (Nedry, Newman, Al McWhiggin, etc.), but he was a 'villain you love to hate'. Panther is the new 'villain you love to hate', but in a "romantic idiot with charm" kind of way, like you said.

I think even Star Fox needs to have a snobbish and semi-dumb character with a special charm to make you love or hate him/her. Also Star Wolf wouldn't be a really big threat anymore when just Wolf and Leon would be the members of it. Panther Caluroso is well known as a very skilled pilot, it's just a good question of how they met with each other. Probably by the time Star Fox Adventures was running, since the 3 of them where acting very close as a team already.

And I may be shot/torched for saying this, but the same can be kinda said of Krystal as well. Some of the decisions that she made were kinda stupid and in some endings she deserved what she got.

Right on all of those.

Leon and Wolf's preppy accents were a bit out of place for them, Leon is a sociopath cold-blooded killer, and Wolf is a mean ol' middle aged badass space pirate. Having those upper class accents, while making them sound snobby, didn't fit. That's why I'm also glad they added Panther, as the snobbish character you love to hate. They didn't overdo him by giving him a snooty preppy accent, they made him more of a..."debonair" swordsman type.

Plus, like you said, the Star Wolf Team with just Wolf and Leon would not be as challenging or intimidating.

...are you also saying Falco deserves to get shot down sometimes as well since he's such a hot head? Or Slippy, since he always gets himself into these sticky situations? If so, you're right! xD

Yeah, but how would you feel if you were shot by canon bullets from a giant mecha robot? :lol:

I'd feel dead. xD

The first few shots that don't kill you wouldn't hurt at first, then would hurt a hell of a lot.

(Originally I wanted to use the Libyans from Back To The Future shooting Dr. Brown, but I couldn't find any decent youtube footage of just that scene. Found one, but the sound sucked.)

Well of course it would hurt, or it would hurt so much your body can't comprehend what to do anymore.

Yup!

Panther kinda reminds me of Catwoman as played by Julie Neumarr, or Eartha Kitt for the old Batman live action show from the '60's. He's very "hedonistic"...

@RedFox8:
I agree with you about Krystal. She is also a love/hate character for me in some ways. Sure she is pretty and has a nice ability, but I think she still is a bit 'in the wrong place'.

@Kursed:
Congratz and don't worry, I've shot down Panther as first, too :P

@Julius:
True to all what you said, though I love how crazy Leon is in Assault.

It's a good thing Command isn't canon. That would be disastrous.
