Arwings are small spacecrafts from the Star Fox series. They appear in the background of all Star Fox stages in the Super Smash Bros. series, namely Sector Z, Corneria, Venom and Lylat Cruise. They fly by, creating another platform, or shooting the players from behind. They are piloted by Peppy Hare and Slippy Toad, and either Fox McCloud or Falco Lombardi in the Adventure Mode. Additionally, at the beginning of every match in every Super Smash Bros. game except Super Smash Bros. Melee, Fox or Falco would enter the stage from jumping off an Arwing. Arwings also appear in all openings of the Super Smash Bros. games. A similar spacecraft is the Wolfen, Star Wolf's equivalent of the Arwing.
In Super Smash Bros. Melee's Adventure Mode stage Corneria, Arwings are not present in the first battle against Fox or Falco, but charge for a heavy attack in the second battle. A trophy of an Arwing also appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee.
In the Subspace Emissary of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Fox will be riding in his Arwing while avoiding the shots fired from the Halberd. The Halberd is eventually able to hit the Arwing and knock it down. The Arwing flies right past Kirby and the rescued princess (Peach or Zelda) knocking them both off the ship. The Arwing then crashes down in Donkey Kong Island. Meanwhile, Diddy Kong is walking by and notices the destroyed Arwing. However, Rayquaza suddenly appears and launches a beam at Fox and his Arwing. The beam causes an explosion which sets the Arwing on flames. However, somehow, Fox survives the hit and jumps out of his Arwing and saves Diddy from Rayquaza. Later in the story, Fox rides an Arwing in the dogfight against Ganondorf and Bowser in their large Subspace Gunship.
Arwings appear in the background of the Orbital Gate Assault stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, where they take their appearance from Star Fox: Assault. Eventually during a match, players are able to fight on top of the Arwings as they enter the gate itself. There is a different trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the former showing an Arwing from Star Fox 64 and the latter showing an Arwing from Star Fox: Assault.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, for Fox and Falco's Final Smash, instead of piloting the Landmaster as in previous games, they call upon an army of Arwings that swoop into the stage, catching any opponents they hit. Fox and Falco then join in and fire multiple shots at the opponents, inflicting damage and launching them.
