I will scatter pieces of you throughout the galaxy!
—The Anglar Emperor

The Anglar Emperor is the primary antagonist of Star Fox Command and is fought as the final boss depending on the ending. Note that he is only fought in his regular form after the destruction of the Arrowhead on Venom. If the Arrow Head is destroyed in the Asteroid field, he will not be fought, presumably due to having died from exposure to space or being caught in the explosion.


During the first phase, against the Arrow Head, it has to be blasted away section by section, similar to a Monarch Dodora. It can only be hit when it is on the same floor with the player, and since the player cannot switch floors, a useful tactic would be using Smart Bombs. As the player breaks off sections of the creature, the sections drop off to the bottom of the room and will attempt to shoot the player down with lasers. Once enough sections are damaged, the remaining parts will align themselves tic-tac-toe style and attempt to ram the player. They can be blocked by shooting the sections or by rolling. This phase ends when the head is destroyed. In the main path, the battle ends here, since the player is fighting him in space and not on Venom. Otherwise, the Emperor will flee into the Venom Depths, and you will fight him "on rails" without a time limit.

Three pieces (which seem to be of the destroyed Arrow Head) will surround the Emperor and the player has to destroy them. Once that happens, they will turn red and the Anglar Emperor will start attacking. The player has to shoot him on the esca (the antenna-like thing on his head) and his life will begin to decrease. Once he takes enough damage, the player will have to deal with girders in addition to his normal attacks, and the girders will keep up until the player hits the pieces enough times as before. This part repeats until the battle is won, though it shouldn't take but one or two loops of this pattern to finish him. After that, the evil Emperor is dead.


  • When you battle him in the Venom depths, his attacks resemble those from battles with his presumed creator Andross, complete with the ape's signature inhale and exhale attacks.
