Game Boy Advance

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Fox as well as Slippy and Peppy were originally intended to make a cameo at the Starbeans cafe in the sidequest, alongside several other Nintendo characters. He would have arrived and gotten a free taste test of the new blend (although his hesitant reaction implied that wasn't his intention behind his appearance). He then is called back to aid Slippy. He would then provide the Mario Bros. with a Gold Ring. This was ultimately cut as a result of one of the cameo characters, E. Gadd, being given a more major role in the sidequest, although it was nevertheless included as dummied data. The Bonus Ring was also repurposed from the intended Gold Ring.


Nintendo DS

You can get an Arwing as a piece of furniture which plays the Star Fox theme tune when used.

This is also a reference to StreetPass: Mii Plaza, as a talking rabbit also sells games in that game. Star Fox character designer Takaya Imamura also did character design for Steel Diver: Sub Wars

In the June 2014 update of Steel Diver: Sub Wars, the Blue Marine from Star Fox 64 was added as a free DLC submarine. 


Monster Hunter Generations

A costume based on Fox McCloud appears in Monster Hunter Generations.

WarioWare Gold

In WarioWare Gold, the microgame Star Fox returns from Smooth Moves, however it has been adjusted to play as a standard microgame, rather than a Boss microgame.

F-Zero series

The F-Zero James McCloud.

Although different series by both gameplay and by settings but somewhat similar, both the Star Fox and F-Zero series are Nintendo properties and each have made several cameos or references to each other throughout their respective histories. Both the Star Fox and F-Zero series have Takaya Imamura as lead character designer. "F-Zero X" introduces two racers who are throwbacks to Star Fox characters. The first is James McCloud a human recreation of his Star Fox counterpart, whose vehicle the Little Wyvern also slightly resembles a modified Arwing. The second character is Leon, an alien who resembles Wolf O'Donnell with Leon Powalski's name. In "F-Zero GX", "F-Zero GP Legend" and "F-Zero Climax", both James McCloud and Leon reprise their roles as playble racers. In the GCN game, James McCloud's character design was updated to look even more like his to said character, such as his haircut resembling a fox head (despite being human). He is also revealed to be part of a group called "Galaxy Dogs," a obvious parody of the name "Star Fox." Another reference to Star Fox is McCloud's biography in F-Zero also notes him having a wife and a young son, except that unlike the F-Zero character, his Lylatian self's spouse has only been identified in the Nintendo Power comics, where he wasn't named specifically as James until the N64 game. Leon was also further updated to with enhanced artistry to resemble Star Wolf's leader.

G-Zero GPX.

The N64 game also introduced Octoman, who would later make an altered appearance in Star Fox Command, the same game that had a homage to the F-Zero series in the game's 9th possible ending outcome; "The Curse of Pigma", where Fox and Falco retire from the Star Fox Team and become a racing team within the G-Zero GP.

Another factor to consider is that both Star Fox and F-Zero have both been featured in every entry in the "Super Smash Bros." series.
