Andross was a brilliant scientist formeely employed by the Cornerian Army. He took his research too far, and the disastrous results branded him a criminal, resulting in his banishment to the nearby planet Venom. After building a base and declaring himself emperor, he swore he would rule the Lylat system. Andross often appears as a gigantic head with two floating hands, and his main offensive method is to suck matter in and then violently exhaling it in the form of either rubble or metal tiles. His weak points are his hands and his eyes.
In Star Fox 64, he is voiced by Rick May in the English version of the game. He is voiced by Duncan Botwood in the Rare-produced Star Fox Adventures.
