While Japanese and/or English has the most audible and written appearances in the Star Fox series, Lylat is a form of spoken dialogue that has made some appearances in the games and is composed of gibberish, squeaks, croaking or babbles depending on the character who speaks it at the time, but the text remains in Japanese and/or English.

Along with select few spoken English words, the Lylat language made its first appearance in the first game, where it is spoken by all characters in the game: Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi, Peppy Hare, Slippy Toad, General Pepper and Andross. It is essentially the same sound clip for each character, but for Fox's teammates it alternates depending on their mood and status (normal, frightened, angry or shot down).

Lylat language is a voice setting in Lylat Wars, the PAL (European and Australian) version of "Star Fox 64". Due to the game text including French and German options as well as English in that release, the player can also choose between English and "Lylat" options as an alternative voice. This feature has not returned for the 3DS release, as regional voice acting has been included.

  • Yaru de Pon may be speaking entirely in Lylat, as his dialogue remains the same, regardless of voice option. This applies only to the Nintendo 64 release.

A similar Lylat-like language appears as the sole spoken dialogue format for every character, both playable and non-playable. Players are able to alter the voices for each character by speaking into the Nintendo DS's Microphone, this can be redone or returned to the default settings.

Being a game originally intended for release after the original game, the sound clips work similarly as in its predecessor, with additional voices for Miyu and Fay.
