The old conundrum; Do Cornerian Pilots have augmented legs?

First time I heard about it really. Watching Dorkly's "Did you know."

So what do you think? Cornerian Pilot's legs amputated so they wouldn't be affected by blood loss?

I seriously doubt they amputate their legs. You don't see pilots of any other shows do that. Including that, but I'm pretty sure not everyone prefers getting their legs cut off just to fly a space fighter XD I would certainly like to keep all my limbs.

Well, I personally doubt that that's all the legs would do.

I mean, their moves in the Smash series? Speed? I'd imagine the legs boost their fighting capabilities as well.

Highly unlikely. They're just wearing the funkiest footwear I ever saw (even for 1993) :P

Two words: Not Human.
You don't see f-22 pilots or astronauts in the space shuttle without legs do yoU?

Their legs and feet look normal here:

If you look at Fox's feet, you'll see why some people ask about augmented feet for the Cornerian pilots:

Yeah, Adventures on are what really make heads scratch...

But how can you fit an entire Anthro's ankle in a small joint like that? It's like 2" in diameter!

I don't think their feet are designed that way. Just look at Krystal's Adventures model.

I think the fact that their not human plus the gravity diffusers could help and as far as moving fast their not human and they could have robotic exoskeletons.

Maybe his feet are just paws! Or his feet actually end at the bottom of the trouser, and they rest on the top of the "shoe", held in place with sandal-like straps. Like I said, funky fashion style... xD

I think it's just rushed art.

My guess is that foxes are typically quadrupeds (use four legs). If you make a fox a bipedal (two legs) without naturally modifying the back legs, mechanical augmentation would likely required on these legs for them to support the weight of the rest of the body for an extended duration.

This probably applies to the original Star Fox (SNES) only, as everyone seems to have more human proportions (in terms of feet, anyway) by SF64.

I agree! Though Four-eyed Vulpine also has a good point, but for practical purposes, I say that it is just bad/rushed art.
