Why He Rocks

  5. He exhibited exceptional aerial skills even at a puerile age, resulting in him joining the Cornerian Flight academy. 
  6. His friendly rivalry with fellow teammate, Falco Lombardi.
  7. Even though Peppy was older than all the other Star Fox Team members, he declined the leadership role and insisted that the younger Fox McCloud take over the team after his late father.
  8. He ended two intergalactic wars, though with minor assistance from his team.
  9. His iconic move set In the Super Smash Bros. series, particularly Melee, with his reflector, blaster, and illusion/fire abilities.

Bad Qualities
