Lylat is the Lylat System's star, and its namesake. It has not actually appeared in any official main Star Fox series games as of yet, but it has appeared or referenced in supplement materials.


As of "Star Fox 64" to "Star Fox Command", Solar is visible from many planets, instead of Lylat. In contradiction, Star Fox 2 reveals that the Lylat system was a binary star system, and was located far away from Venom. Despite its apparent size, the Lylat star is yet to be seen on any official map of the Lylat system.

With a surface temperature in excess of 3,500 degrees Kelvin, Solar is the undisputed hot spot in the Lylat System. When measured against other stars in the system, however, Solar looks downright frigid. Solar is a red M-Class dwarf, one of the coldest stars in the universe. In contrast, Solar's antithesis, a B-Class blue star, has a searing temperature of 25,000 degrees Kelvin and a life expectancy of a couple billion years. Luckily, M-Class stars burn the slowest and last the longest. Scientists predict that Solar will keep shining in the Lylat System for 100 billion years or more.

  • According to the "History trailer" from "Star Fox Zero", during the cockpit view from the N64 Arwing there's a blue star that would likely be identified as Lylat and the yellow star may likely be Solar.
