The Walker is an available vehicle that would have appeared in the cancelled Star Fox 2, and makes its first released appearance in Star Fox Zero. It is an optional Arwing transformation as an alternative mode of transport.
AppearanceReminiscent of "chicken walker" styled walkers in science fiction media, the Walker transforms by the Arwing's cockpit rising upwards to form the "head", two G-diffusers act as "shoulders" while the other two act as legs with three wings as "feet". A single laser cannon is formed from under the head for self defence.
Star Fox 2
Judging by leaked online footage, the Walker could have transformed at will from an Arwing, by using the wings as feet. It would have seemingly moved side to side or frontwards and backwards and could still attack. Its usage might have been used as a method of maintaining a stationary position and finding the Medals in awkward locations. Since elements from the cancelled Star Fox 2 were carried over to Star Fox 64, it was likely replaced by the Landmaster, but as an entirely different vehicle. However, the transformation returned alongside the Landmaster in Star Fox Zero.
Star Fox Zero
The Walker makes its official series debut in the upcoming Star Fox Zero. The Arwing can touch down on the ground and transform into the Walker. This allows players to explore sections that would be too small for the Arwing or require slowed down exploration. The Walker is useful in areas such as the inside of the Androsa fortress because the tunnels would be too small for the fast flying Arwing, and the Walker can remain stationary when attacking the main reactor. The Walker can fire lasers and charged bolts and also dash and hover using the Boost and Brake Gauge. Later, it gains the ability to hack computers like the Gyrowing.
The Wolfen receives a similar transformation ability in the form of the Hunter.

- The Walker's feet resemble the "feathered fingers" seen on Falco's Sky Claw in Command.
- Is also sometimes referred to by fans as "The Chicken wing" in reference to its' walking animation
- There is an Arwing amiibo suit in Super Mario Maker and when Costume Mario is walking, the Arwing goes into its walker form.
