The Trainer is a Raccoon that appears in Star Fox 64 and its 3DS rerelease. He only appears in the game's Training Mode, teaching the neccessary techniques to pilot the Arwing in both standard "Corridor Mode" and All-Range Mode.
The Trainer appears to be a tanuki with a green cap. A theory is that he may be a flight instructor for the Cornerian army. He holds up a wrench showing that he is also some type of mechanic. The fact that the Trainer seems to speak in a similar manner to Morse code in the original game also indicates that the Trainer may actually be a hologram designed to help with training.
- The Trainer is the only character in the N64 version of the game to not speak English (He instead speaks in an almost Morse code-esque manner). He could be speaking Lylat Language as his voice remains the same in the Europe and Austrailan release, whatever voice option the player chooses.
- The Trainer is given a speaking voice, currently voiced by Jay Ward, in Star Fox 64 3D. His tone of voice suggests he is giving Army Boot Camp directions rather than tips.
