The Wolfen flies by in the background of Sector Z in some instances; however, it doesn't attack the player.
The Wolfen appears in the Corneria stage. It occasionally fires lasers at the characters on screen. The Wolfen doesn't target any character in particular. Once it has stopped firing, the Wolfen will then fly off the screen after a few seconds. If a character remains on it when it flies off the screen, that character will be Star KO'd.
The Wolfen also appears in the opening movie, piloted by Wolf as he makes his cameo.
As a trophy
- The beloved ship of the mercenary team Star Wolf, which was hired to destroy Fox and his team. The ship's abilities rival an Arwing. As a matter of fact, the Wolfen II was an improvement over its predecessor and could nearly outperform team Star Fox's ships. Star Wolf's leader, Wolf O'Donnell is Fox's most persistent rival. (Star Fox 64 06/97)
The Wolfen reappears in the Corneria stage as it did before and also makes an appearance in the Lylat Cruise stage. The Wolfen also appears briefly in both Wolf's On-Screen Appearance in which he ejects from it to enter on the battlefield, as well as a bonus scene of the Subspace Emissary, in which Wolf ejects from the Wolfen and lands on the Lylat Cruise to face off the player (it can be seen here). It's also notable that the Wolfen appears slightly different than the Star Fox: Assault version, where its wings are spread farther apart.
As a trophy
- A class of starfighter piloted by Team Star Fox's rivals, team Star Wolf. Wolfen's boast more gravity-suppressing plates than Arwings, making their performance equal or perhaps even superior. When Team Star Wolf reappeared, they were piloting Wolfen II ships--improved versions with two laser cannons rather than one and capable of reflecting attacks by rolling.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS
Star Wolf's all-range fighters were designed by an evil scientist (Andross) and a truly shameless mechanic (Pigma). Still, leaving aside the designers' personal qualities, the Wolfen's performance and careful design make it truly stand out. In fact, its turning ability and high-gravity resistance surpass even the Arwing.
These all-range fighter are Star Wolf's pride and joy. They're considered to be on the same level as Star Fox's Arwings--maybe even better because of having two pairs of gravity-regulating Gravity Blades. In Star Fox: Assault, you can actually earn a chance to fly a Wolfen yourself. Why not try it out and see which is better?
