"I've been waiting for you, Fox McCloud! You may have returned the spellstones, but the war is not over yet! Now... you must face ME!"
- —General Scales
This test was completed by Fox, and it was the easiest test of all, it consisted in beating General Scales, who was a lot like the normal SharpClaw, just with more defense. Simply drawing the Staff and attempting to strike Scales will end the trial.
The battle never occurred when the voice of Andross posing as the Krazoa God ordered General Scales and Fox to stop fighting. Scales was caught completely by surprise from this, demanding the ape to show himself. But Andross refused while he explains that the EarthWalkers were able to see him at Krazoa Palace, but Scales's greed blinded the General to the truth inside and threatened the SharpClaw leader to give the final Krazoa Spirit to Fox. Before relinquishing the final Krazoa Spirit, General Scales quotes "You will regret this..." giving out a roar before collapsing as the final Spirit appears from within. Fox, although keen to complete his expedition, is dumbfounded by this act and cannot help but recoginse the strange voice from somewhere. Three SharpClaw arrive, but instead of attacking Fox, they collect their motionless leader's belt as a prize and begin to cheer.
General Pepper's ReportEdit
This is the detailed description that General Pepper gives to Fox for selection of this test when contacting him:
N/A - When Fox released the final Spirit, his contacts were severed when he flew into space to battle Andross.
- Though no battle occured, General Scales will simply move and make the same sounds as his soldiers. If the player has an attack set the the Y button, they will find that no staff magic attack will effect Scales, not even the Super Ground Quake, therefore this would have made Scales a more formidable enemy than a RedEye.
- General Scales was not seen or heard of after this event. When Fox returns to Krazoa Palace after defeating Andross in space, the SharpClaw have overrun the land, but are cheering for their freedom while one trooper holds up Scales's belt as a trophy. His fate is unknown.
- This is the only test that does not go on General Pepper's record, for once the final Krazoa Spirit is released, Fox flew into space to battle Andross, therefore the game is complete.
