James McCloud is the leader of the flight squad Galaxy Dogs. According to F-Zero GX, he is 32 and had his combat plane converted into an F-ZERO machine in order to compete in the Grand Prix. During peacetime there is very little work available, so McCloud has entered his second race in an attempt to take home the big prize money. He is motivated to become the new champion by thoughts of his wife and young son, both of whom need his support.

James McCloud joined in the F-Zero races in 2670 after the races had been reopened with new safety protocols. Although James McCloud didn't win the prize that year, he re-entered the following year in 2671. He hopes to win the prize money in order to support his family since he has had little work in recent years. If he wins, he plans to buy his son a racing model of his own.

James McCloud and Star Fox

His appearance is startlingly similar to the character of the same name (the long-deceased father of protagonist Fox McCloud) in the series Star Fox, with a similar jumpsuit, jacket, shades, and markings. Even his vehicle is similar in appearance to an Arwing. He is the leader of the space patrol unit, Galaxy Dogs, which is a parody of Star Fox. According to Nintendo Power, "It's just one of the fun things the developers decided to put into F-Zero GX". They also stated "As similar in looks as they are, Fox and James McCloud don't have any connection".[2] His alternate costumes in F-Zero GX also reference the other Star Fox members. In episode 33 of F-Zero GP Legend, James McCloud's partner named O'Donnell was mentioned, referencing the surname of Wolf O'Donnell, rival of Fox McCloud and leader of the Star Wolf squadron.
