SPY Fox is an anthropomorphic red fox, normally seen wearing a white tuxedo, black pants, and a black bowtie. He does not wear shoes. He has a large tail with a pastel-colored tip.
In the original US version, SPY Fox is largely meant to be an imitation of Maxwell Smart, the lead character of the 1960's television comedy series Get Smart. This is visible in his high nasal voice and his occasional use of Smart's catchphrases, his voice is also similar to Inspector Gadget from the 80's television series. Like Smart, he is a bit clueless and bumbling at times, but usually he is clever, resourceful, and generally talented in his work, often becoming overconfident.
However, in the UK dub of the games, SPY Fox is shown to be much more suave and well-poised, mimicking his inspiration of James Bond. In the US version of the games, he often introduces himself using James Bond's catchphrase when the latter introduces himself.
- SPY Fox makes a cameo appearance in one of the Pajama Sam books.
- In the Demo of Blue's Birthday, he makes a cameo as one of the characters who randomly appears on an click point of a birthday card (complete with a short version of his theme).
