Alpine Roots are items in Star Fox Adventures. They are large, beetroot-shaped plants that grow underground in SnowHorn Wastes and DarkIce Mines on planet Sauria. The SnowHorn love to eat them, but are unfortunately unable to dig them up by themselves. The Roots are dark yellow, and have dark, horizontal stripes running along their surface. They grow two leaves above ground which reveals their location. They can be dug up by using Prince Tricky's Find Command.
In DarkIce Mines, Fox McCloud has to find two Alpine Roots for an injured SnowHorn after saving him from two SharpClaws. After feeding the Roots to him, he tells Fox to hop on his back, so they can go smash the main gate, allowing Fox to continue his journey. After collecting the Dinosaur Horn, Fox will ride another SnowHorn into a blizzard, following a trail of Alpine Roots to keep up his strength.
