The Psychic blue Fox hailing from Sauria has joined the fray!... is what we’d like to hear. Krystal, is a vixen and the most recently-recruited member of the Star Fox team. She serves as Fox McCloud's main love interest and made her first appearance in the series in Star Fox Adventures. In addition to her fighter role, Krystal is the team's telepath; these abilities are first seen in Adventures and put to good use during the Aparoid Invasion. Using her abilities, she can read thought patterns and sense distress signals, which is vital for the team as they help out other planets.
In Super Smash Bros Brawl: Krystal appears as both a character in the StarFox codecs (Where she alludes to being the only SF character left who can fight), as well as a trophy with a description.
A member of the Star Fox team welcomed in Star Fox Adventures after the team met her on planet Sauria when responding to a distress signal. Krystal is capable of telepathy and is a valuable member in combat. After becoming romantically involved with Fox, their relationship gets very rocky in Star Fox Command.
For the second time her fighting prowess is also mentioned in her other appearence within Smash.
In Sm4sh: At this point, Krystal is pretty much the final important character within the StarFox series. We have Fox (Main Hero), Falco (Second Banana), Wolf (Villain/Rival), the last character we need is Krystal (Love interest). In many ways, not having Krystal is like not having Peach in the Mario universe. She is the last key character in the series that has yet to be added into Smash bros. Fortunately for us, Sakurai isn't too concerned about "representing" any series with a limited number of slots, and he DOES KNOW of Krystal, since he had his team work on her codecs, and he wrote up her trophy description. So, to me, this is Krystal's prime time to be included. As for what she could bring to Smash in terms of playstyle something along the lines of a staff weilder (Seong Mi-Na of SC esque) would be ideal. She could, of course, end up being "semi-cloned" like Wolf and Falco, which wouldn't be that bad. Her appearance in Smash 4 would probably be her Assault costumes, considering that's what she's seen wearing in Brawl, but she could also be dressed in either of these costumes as well:Peppy: That gives me itching for some action. I want in!
Slippy: No way! Old-timers like you ride the bench. This fight's mine!
Krystal: What are you two thinking? I'm the only one who can come through in a fight like this!!
Some people will try to take this and say that it's Nintendo's way of "Rebooting" the series, but there is no way to reaaaaallly know that. So, until StarFox Wii U is announced, I'm going to take it in the same light I took OoT3D, just a remake of a great game.
So please, feel free to discuss any aspects of this character here! From movesets, to costumes, or how you would personally want to see her implemented. I would like to hear your opinions on this character as well, all is welcome.
