Androids are robotic, or other artificial beings designed to resemble functional and realistic humanoids, usually programmed with an artificial intelligence.


Androssians are loyal members, specific technology and military units that serve under the Venomian empire created by the self proclaimed Emperor Andross himself. The term first appeared in the Star Fox 64 Official Nintendo Power Player's Strategy Guide, returning in the game text of "Star Fox Zero", and the accompanying DK/Prima's Official Strategy Guide.

Slippy and Fox examine the Aparoidedation effects on ThornTails.

Aparoidedation is a process where living beings and mechanical creations undergo a brainwashing assimilation into joining the Aparoid race. The victims are often slowly covered and eventually engulfed by protruding glowing vessels and quickly lose their thoughts into total Aparoid control. Stronger willed characters can resist the effects of the virus but will not be able to repel the effects for long. The term first appears in the opposite screenshot.Assault logo.png

Aparoid Invasion

The events that take place during the Story Mode of "Star Fox: Assault".


Beltino explains his apoptosis theory with his self-destruct program idea.

Apoptosis is a process in which a cell self-destructs through the release of enzymes. In the Star Fox universe, however, it is stated that apoptosis is when an organism carries cells designed for the purpose of self-destruction. The Aparoids have a weakness, since their bodies contain many of these cells, thereby allowing a weapon known as the Self-Destruct program to obliterate all Aparoids in a single blow. But in order for the cells to activate the self-destruct program has to be fired into the Aparoid Queen who has to be severely weakened. The program is transported by Fox McCloud who manages to invade the Queen's nest and deploy it after destroying her armor, despite being able to flee and suppress the program, the Queen was eventually crippled and could no longer keep the program from activating. This destroyed all the Aparoids in the universe and released every being corrupted by them free from the Queen's grasp.

Asteroid Destroyer

Avians, also known as birds, are characterised by feathers, toothless beaked jaws and wings. Most species are recognised for their ability to fly. PukPuk Birds are a species of unseen avians that the SharpClaw Tribe breed to farm their PukPuk Eggs for sustenance.Star Fox Adventures.png


Battleships are generally large vehicle that are designed, built and equipped for harsh frontline warfare. They often maintain a solitary held stationary position on the space battlefield, acting as defensive barricades to repel hostiles.


Possible bioweapons the guard the device.

A Bioweapon is a living organism altered via artificial means (either by cybernetic enhancement, genetic engineering or some combination of the two) to serve as a weapon of war. Andross created and utilized several of these during the Lylat Wars. The names is also the boss subtitle and role of the Solar and Aquas bosses in "Star Fox 64 3D".

  • Attack Carrier
  • Biobrain
  • Drakor
  • Dune Worm
  • Monarch Dodora
  • Vulcain
  • Goras: Recreated from the remains of a prehistoric beast.
  • Bacoon: While it was stated to be a bioweapon by Fox and the rest of the Star Fox team, the Star Fox 64 player's guide implies that Bacoon has actually existed several centuries before Andross was even born, and that it was the one responsible for wiping out the civilization on Aquas and turning it into a pure ocean world.
  • Gorgon: It is not stated to be a bioweapon anywhere, but its movements appear rather organic, which could indicate that it is a cybernetic construct similar to Mechbeth. The Area 6 Commander's remarks also hint at Gorgon being highly uncontrollable (as it was deployed only as a last resort) which could suggest that Andross's scientists have great difficulties controlling it, if indeed it is a bioweapon.
  • Plasma Hydra: It is uncertain if it is a machine or a living creature, but its Japanese title dubs it a mechanical organism.
  • Mechbeth: Appears to be mostly if not completely mechanical.


Blasters are projected energy weapons, often in the form of advanced energy firing pistols and rifles or even large laser cannons found on most starships. Many different affiliations and factions in the Lylat System have been seen in possession of their own Blasters, either as mass produced or specially customised weapons for battle or even to clear pathways in Asteroid Fields.


Bombs are explosive weapons that uses the exothermic reactions of an explosive material to provide an extremely sudden and violent release of energy. Detonations inflict damage principally through ground- and atmosphere-transmitted mechanical stress, the impact and penetration of pressure-driven projectiles, pressure damage, and explosion-generated effects.

A Boss is often the name that operatives and workers refer to their leader of an organisation. In many "Star Fox" games, a Boss is often the Enemy Force Commander in charge of the Mission Enemies and the objective opponent who challenges the player towards the end of a mission.


Captain is a military rank, given to commanding officers in military and police forces.


Cats are a mammalian species that inhabitants the Lylat System, including other kinds of felines like Panthers and Lynxes.

Curve, also known as Arc, is a type of laser blaster, that is even stronger than the Plasma Laser, and curves when fired whilst the ship is rolling, but is slightly slower than other weapons. The only known starfigther with this weapon is the Cat's Paw 2.Star Fox Command logo.png

Data Crystal

Final crystal recovered
Security data core restored. Access core from the ship's war room.
—Message after collecting all seven crystals.

Data crystals are items that are collectible on the Star Fox Assault official website. With the exception of Beltino Orbital Gate, all of the data crystals are needed to access the Security Data Core section of the website, which supplied detailed information about the bad guys, as well as six AIM icons and four Wolf-themed wallpapers.

Hence the name, they are crystals that are designed to store data and other information in the Lylat System. They are especially useful regarding intelligence work and files relating to confidential matters. They are often stored in a data core to operate the information system. Sometime during the Aparoid Invasion, the Star Fox team lost seven data crystals, and needed to travel throughout the Lylat System to recover them.

Dogs and other related canines seem to be one of the most present races in the Lylat System, with their homeworlds based on Corneria and Katina, although there is no real dominating population. Most of the Cornerian Military is constituted by dog, as seen by their most important members. The reason why the Cornerians were generally depicted as dogs while the Venomians were primarily depicted as monkeys is due to cultural elements in Japan, the country the Star Fox series originated in: In Japan, Monkeys and Dogs were considered to be mortal enemies. This was made more explicit in Star Fox Zero, where Andross made various racist slurs against the Cornerians and General Pepper specifically due to the latter being composed of dogs. Ironically considering who the Cornerians were composed of, one of the next-generation starfighters the Venomians had in Sector X was named Canine.

Dimension Transport System

Dimension Transport System, or Matter Displacement Device is a special machine created by Andross that enables teleportation to who or whatever uses one.

  • Star Fox 64 logo.png


Dino is an abbreviation of Dinosaur, but also refers to the native language of Sauria, also known as Dino Talk.

  • Star Fox Adventures.png


Dinosaurs are generally a term used in reference to the many different tribes that inhabit Sauria, which also goes by the name of Dinosaur Planet (not to be confused with the alternative name for the Planet Fortuna). Although most races on Sauria resemble Dinosaurs of real-world palaeontology, some races are entirely different classification such as the mammalian like SnowHorn Tribe, or unique to Sauria.

Dinosaur Planet

Foxes are a common species of omnivorous mammals belonging to the Canidae family, making them related to Dogs and Wolves. Foxes are small to medium-sized canids, characterized by possessing a long narrow snout, and a bushy tail which can be used for melee combat. Foxes are not as strong as dogs and wolves, but a bit faster and more agile. They have pointed ears, a pointed snout and a medium-length, very bushy tail, which can be used in close combat. Foxes are inherently solitary and suspicious, making them less likely to be incorporated into larger unit federations. They are quite intelligent and rely on their instinct to find a way out even in difficult situations or to help their allies.



Frogs are a species that appear throughout the Lylat System as anthropomorphic humanoids, like others. Frogs are known for their characteristic large eyes, high jumping ability, long stretchy tongues and they are frequently portrayed as kind, sympathetic characters with a distinctive mastery of mechanical engineering, inventions and technology, and a great fondness for swimming underwater. A most noteworthy frog is the famous gentle and understanding Slippy Toad of the Star Fox Team.

Fuel Cell

Fuel Cells are used as a power source for specific engines, especially helpful for vehicles that operate away from motherships and headquarters for extensive periods.

Game over

Andross game over. Jpg

In video games, Game over is an event where messages are given to the player(s) concerning the usually unsatisfied ending of gameplay and continued gaming progress is discontinued. In popular culture, the term is used as a slang phrase for the very worst of luck. In the Star Fox series, Game over is determined by the complete loss of available ships / lives from being shot down or lost all health. Game overs can be avoided by the use of extra lives. Game overs will usually lead players back to the Main menu or Title screen of the game.


It is my duty as a GateKeeper to guard the land from which a SpellStone is forged. General Scales took the SpellStone, and discovered that I was a GateKeeper. He gave me an ultimatum. Allow him to take the SpellStone back into the sacred land, or he would destroy my tribe. I could not risk the safety of the entire planet, so I refused to help. My daughter did not think this way. And so to save the tribe, she opened the gateway herself. Scales did not destroy my tribe, he enslaved them instead. My daughter dishonoured me. You must search for the SpellStone within DarkIce Mines and return it, to the Volcano Force Point Temple. Only then, will the SpellStone's power return. I will open the gateway.
—Garunda Te

A GateKeeper is a notable individual who guards one of the five Gateways in "Star Fox Adventures". Fox McCloud encounters them on his expedition to Dinosaur Planet. They all fall under the wrath of General Scales and his SharpClaw army during the Plight of Sauria in their conquest of the planet, forcing them all to open their own lands for him. The GateKeepers may pass on their ability to open Gateways to their lineage, as Belina Te was able to open the gateway and the Quiet ThornTail opened his gateway with the rest of his tribe joining in. The King EarthWalker was able to leave a portion of his power inside a Portal Door behind Queen EarthWalker's shelter in ThornTail Hollow. The fact that Andross is very skilled in space warp science is a likely case for him being able to create a Gateway, further evident when Fox's Arwing followed his guise as the Krazoa God into a Gateway)


The silent ThornTail opens his gateway for Fox, so he can travel to Dragon Rock.

The Gateways were five portals that opened only when a GateKeeper opened them. Fox McCloud was able to travel to the four sacred SpellStone lands on Dinosaur Planet after meeting with the GateKeepers or finding the power portion. GateKeepers open the Gateways by pointing to the sky and releasing a stream of purple/white energy which creates a spiralling vortex which the Arwing must fly into to reach other destinations.

Known Gateways

  1. DarkIce Mines: General Scales held the SnowHorn tribe hostage and threatened to slaughter them unless the GateKeeper Garunda Te would open the Gateway for him, so his daughter Belina Te was shown to be capable of opening the portal herself in order to save their tribe.
  2. CloudRunner Fortress: The Queen CloudRunner was able to open her Gateway while in flight.
  3. Walled City: It appeared that when General Scales came to take the King EarthWalker prisoner, the king knew the SharpClaw were coming for him and he was able to leave a portion of his powers with the Queen EarthWalker behind a Portal Door that could only be opened by Krystal's Staff.
  4. Dragon Rock: The quiet ThornTail was accompanied by other members of his tribe when opening this portal.
  5. Dinosaur Planet's orbit: Where the Arwing was able to travel between the four SpellStone lands and return to Dinosaur Planet. The Arwing followed the Krazoa God into a Gateway which led back into space, who was later revealed to be Andross.


General is a very high military rank, given to commanding officers in military and police forces.


The schematics for the original Arwing from Star Fox.

Gravity Diffusion system, or G-Diffusion, is an experimental power system fuelled by hydrogen that is used in starfighters to reduce gravity forces on the pilot and provides a respectable power source for shields and propulsion, also allowing extended operating ranges. However, due to the temperamental nature of the G-Diffuser, these systems need to be carefully checked and maintained; while easy to fix in flight, they can consume a pilots' full attention, something that kills pilots in a dogfight.

Hot Rodders

Hot Rodders, or Space Hot Rodders is the name of a gang of interstellar rascals that were led by Falco Lombardi before he withdrew and joined up the Star Fox team, after a falling out with Katt Monroe. The gang were identified on the Japanese "Star Fox 64" site as: Free-As-A-Bird.

Keys are small pieces of shaped metal with incisions cut to fit the wards of a particular lock, which is inserted into a lock and turned to open or close it. Finding the correct key can be used to unlock something of great importance or value in games. Other distinctive objects that are found and collectable can also serve the role of keys, as they can unlock doors or trigger context.


Laser is a general science fiction term for projected energy, usually in the form of weaponry found within handheld arnaments or large laser cannons found on starships. In the Star Fox series, Lasers are a form of energy used by the laser cannons found on the Arwing, Wolfen, Blue Marine, Landmaster, Cornerian Fighters, and many more vehicles.


Lizards in the Nintendo Power Comic depicted with a characteristic hiss.

Lizards are reptiles and are a common species in the Lylat System. Like Dogs and Monkeys, Lizards tend to be one of the most common species in the galaxy. Like all other animilistic species, they may come from the planet of Corneria, though a large population of them do live on the planet Venom. Reptiles are usually depicted as antagonistic characters such space pirates and assassins. During the Lylat Wars, many of them, alongside Monkeys, were employed into the Venomian Army. They were fierce fighters, but eventually lost the war and were forced to make peace with the Cornerians. Planet Sauria is populated by several Dinosaurs and other ancient races of Reptiles, all of which are related to Lizards.

Lylat System


The location of the "Star Fox series". Also known as the Lylatian System, Lylat Solar System, or Cornerian Star System.

Lylat Wars

The name of "Star Fox 64" in Europe and Australia.

The events of "Star Fox 64" and its 3DS remake. It is essentially a heavily expanded variation of the original 1993 game's story, and was also used as the basis for the plot of "Star Fox Zero". Also the alternative name for the N64 game's PAL release.

Mega Drone

The boss role of the walking mothership boss of the Fichina Mission "Frostbitten Fray" in "Zero".


A Cornerian street performer, with money in his hat, as payment for his service.

Money, also known as Cash, is a system of valuable tokens of exchange, used as payment for goods and services. Money can be used as a source of motivation for businesses and services, but it can also be used as leverage and even cause corruption. On Corneria and presumably Venom, a currency is used by the Lylatian people, which uses the familiar $ symbol used for real world currencies. The promise of payment is also used as acts of bounty hunting and black marketing. The Star Wolf Team of space pirates were vitally hired by Emperor Andross to hunt down the Star Fox Team and eliminate them, under a large payment of blood money. In turn, Star Wolf and his team have equally impressive bounties placed on their heads due to their committed crimes, with the exact amount of reward money placed on their wanted posters.

The Current Star Wolf Team. Along with the high bounties on their heads.

As part of the score system in "Star Fox 64", every single hit point made is counted as SP$64.00 and added up together (SP possibly meaning Standard Procedure). If less than sp$70,000 are due, General Pepper will say, “This is one steep bill... but it’s worth it,” and if sp$70,000 or more are due, he will let out an astounded, “What?!”

During the events of "Star Fox Adventures", it is only after General Pepper's promise of paying the fee for the Star Fox Team's services that Fox quickly jumps into action. When contacting General Pepper's mission status and exiting, he reminds Fox that: "There's a lot of money resting on this".

In the aftermath of "Star Fox: Assault", the Aparoid Homeworld Damage Report clarifies that, as per the standard procedure, the Star Fox Team would receive a large sum of reward money for their immense aid in the Cornerian Empire's rebellion against the Aparoid Invasion.


Simian Soldiers concept art.

Monkeys are a widely represented species of the Lylat System. Most monkeys appear to actually be apes (such as Andross himself), but are both members of the primate family and still referred as such in the Star Fox series (though monkey may be a derogatory term in the same manner as dog). Whether or not Venom is inhabitable and inhabited by monkeys, they seem to be an important race living on the planet. The reason why the Venomians were generally depicted as monkeys while the Cornerians were primarily depicted as dogs is due to cultural elements in Japan, the country the "Star Fox" series originated in: In Japan, Monkeys and Dogs were considered to be mortal enemies. This was made more explicit in "Star Fox Zero", where Andross made various racist slurs against the Cornerians and General Pepper specifically due to the latter being composed of dogs (with the racist slurs being even more explicit in the Japanese version).

Nintendo Power

The Star Fox edition of Nintendo Power.

Nintendo Power was a monthly magazine currently published by Nintendo as a monthly news and strategy magazine initially published in-house by Nintendo of America, and later run independently. As of issue #222 (December 2007), Nintendo contracted publishing duties to Future US, the U.S. subsidiary of British publisher Future. The first issue published was July/August 1988 spotlighting the NES game Super Mario Bros. 2. It was one of the longest-running video game magazines in the United States and Canada, and was Nintendo's official magazine in North America. On August 21, 2012, Nintendo announced that they would not be renewing their licensing agreement with Future Publishing, and that Nintendo Power would cease publication in December 2012.

They created strategic players guides and walkthroughs for "Star Fox 64""Star Fox Adventures" and "Star Fox: Assault". A comic series based on the original Star Fox was also created. Although not directly by Nintendo Power, a poster was released at PAX West 2017 for Star Fox 2 in promotion for the upcoming Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic that was modeled after a Nintendo Power cover dating back to the time of the SNES era.

Pepper in the Nintendo Power Comic, when he was still a Sergeant.

Sergeant is a rank in many uniformed organizations, principally military and policing forces, above corporal and below staff sergeant. In the Nintendo Power Comics, Pepper was still a Sergeant when Andross was exiled from Corneria under high treason, but was unable to do anything to avenge the disappearance of Fox Sr, since he did not have the same commanding authority he would later have as General. In the Star Fox Mission File Printout, another background for Fox's father was given. "Sergeant Fox Senior", apparently a high-ranking member of the Cornerian military and dear friend of General Pepper.


Sharks are a species of fish that inhabit the Lylat System, either as native predators or humanoid bounty hunters. In "Zero", Troikas go by the name of Zoness Sharks.

Wolves are a species of carnivorous mammals belonging to the Canidae family, making them related to Dogs and Foxes. Wolves, like Dogs, are fairly strong. They have pointed ears and a medium-length, relatively bushy tail. Unlike Dogs, however, they are rather loners and opportunists whose loyalty is often temporary. In combat, they can be very wild and unpredictable. They are open and direct fighters who do not shy away from any challenge. On the other hand, they are intelligent enough to assess the situation and to seek the right moment for an attack.

Timeline of Lylat System

Fox's age given by Nintendo Power in 1997.

The Timeline of Lylat System has never been officially established by Nintendo, but by piecing together events in the official games, starting with "Star Fox 64" and currently ending with "Star Fox Command", a tentative timeline can be created. Given that major character's ages have been given in supplement materials, for example, Fox's age was given to be 18 during the events of "Star Fox 64", making him between 29-30 at the time of events of "Command".

Many characters have a known age, provided in various supplement materials or even by in-game dialogue.


According to him, the WarpStone had been left to rest for at least 1000 years, making him the oldest known character in the series. In the original Dinosaur Planet game, there were two SwapStones, which were known to be millions of years old. Star Fox Adventures.png


From his mumblings, the mysterious ShopKeeper has spent over 200 years in his business. Star Fox Adventures.png


In the original Dinosaur Planet game, Drakor is known to be 200 Dragon years of age. Star Fox Adventures.png


The exact age of Andross is unknown, but he can be considered to be as old as General Pepper, or even older, judging by having a known grandson; Dash Bowman.

General Scales

In materials of the original Dinosaur Planet game, General Scales has an age of 50 years old, which would have made his birth around 42 from "Star Fox 64". Star Fox Adventures.png

Important events

Millions of years ago, Titania was a thriving planet populated by an advanced agrarian civilisation. Interspersed between the farming communities were ornate cities of stone that the Titanians constructed using advanced engineering and architectural techniques. The centrepiece of ever town was its temple, where villagers would leave their harvests to appease the fearsome Goras. Now, two million years after an asteroid collided with Titania, the Goras is the only surviving creature roaming the planet. A far cry from the lush, green planet it once was, Titania has become a barren wasteland of deserts and dunes. Even the Goras is different- a direct result of Andross's biomechanics experimentation.
—Lylat Datalink, The Red Planet, pg 53
The ancient civilisation of Aquas once stood above the waves on a series of islands admits the global ocean. There, people built great temples and made a living by harvesting sea life from the surrounding waters. But long ago, a monstrous entity known as Bacoon grew in the depths of the ocean, and it was jealous of the glorious civilisation on the land. Over many years, Bacoon grew powerful. It learned how to control the other aquatic lifeforms, like the explosive Starfish. When Bacoon commanded thousands of the Starfish to migrate to the ice cap and explode, the resulting heat melted the polar ice cap and all the islands were covered by the sea forever.
—Lylat Datalink; Mysteries in the Deep pg 86

Beltino recalls the atrocity that befell the Cornerian Fleet around 17 years prior to the Aparoid uprising.

  • 2,000,000 - A meteorite collides with Titania, reducing its vegetation rich paradise to an arid desert. All native lifeforms became extinct.
  • 8- A single Aparoid, presumably on a reconnaissance mission, manages to almost completely decimate an entire fleet of Cornerian ships.
  • 7- Andross is apprehended by the Cornerian army and exiled to Venom for treason by General Pepper, following his acts of illegal experiments endangering the Cornerians.

Peppy, somehow escapes Venom and returns to Corneria to inform Fox about his father's fate.
    • Andross declares open war on Corneria and the Lylat System. Too overwhelmed to repel the opposition, a new Star Fox is contracted into service by General Pepper of the Cornerian Army to engage in combat and decisive tactics against the Venomian army. Their aid and support proves pivotal in turning the war around in favor of Corneria.
  • - In the final assault on Venom towards the end of the war, Fox McCloud single-handedly confronts and kills Andross in his home base on Venom. Upon the self-destruction of the compound, Andross is presumed dead and his forces are then left in tatters. Corneria secures a decisive victory and the Lylat Wars end.

After the Lylat Wars

  • 1-10- Vivian Hare dies from an "unknown sickness".
  • 4+ The events of the comic book interlude (Titania Conflict) occur. Falco regroups with his team of Hot Rodders after they intercept transmissions from the surviving Venomians. Star Fox and the Hot Rodders discover that Captain Shears, a traitor Cornerian army officer, is leading surviving Venomian soldiers to resurrect not Andross' bioweapons but Andross himself. Andross has become reborn, but Fox ultimately destroys him, and the cloning station that created him on Titania. By this time the Great Fox has fallen into disrepair. Falco temporarily leaves the team.

Pigma Dengar steals an Aparoid core and is eventually assimilated; he is presumably destroyed. The Star Wolf team resurfaces around this time and aids Star Fox in the conflict. The Great Fox is destroyed on the Aparoid homeworld. Team Star Fox is then successful in depositing a self-destruct program into the homeworld's core, which then completely neutralizes the Aparoid invasion, and kills all Aparoids and the queen.

    Background Story: Origin of the Lylatian Conflict

    The Lylat solar system, located near the center of the Milky Way galaxy, is made up of several bountiful planets. No fewer than three of these worlds were home to civilizations teeming with Industrious Inhabitants. The other planets in the system provided boundless natural resources. The comfortable lifestyle enjoyed by the Lylatians was the envy of the galaxy, until the coming of the Emperor Andross.
    Emperor Andross was once known as Doctor Andross, a scientific genius who worked at an advanced lab on Corneria, the fourth planet in the Lylat system. Ever since his childhood, Andross's brilliance outshone that of other children. As an adult, Dr. Andross began developing a powerful engine based on hyper-spatial energy. Selfish and blinded by selfish ambition, he repeatedly conducted dangerous experiments in the heart of Corneria's most populated city. After many warnings from the planet's ruling council, he was finally banished from the planet for endangering the Inhabitants of Corneria.
    Out of sight, out of mind. The Inhabitants of Corneria soon forgot the menace of "Dr. Andross". One day, however, Corneria's small defense force detected some unusual happenings on Venom, the first planet in the Lylat system. Strange unidentified flying objects were monitored manoeuvring above the planet in large numbers. it was not long before the self appointed Emperor Andross, who had fled to Venom, declared war on Corneria.
    The planet Venom had been complete remade by Emperor Andorss into a gigantic military base. Andross hoped that with his military power, he could soon control all the plants in the Lylat system. General Pepper, the commanding officer of Corneria's defense force, decided to dispatch the super-high-performance combat ship ARWING to the defense of the planet, seven though it was in the prototype stage of development. Because of the urgency of the threat to Corneria, however, he did not have time to train pilots for these advanced fighters.
    "We need the Star Fox Team!!"
    This is the call sent out by General Pepper. You are Fox McCloud, leader of the Star Fox team, a group of adventurers with outstanding combat skill. Your mission is to penetrate the defenses of the planet Venom and defeat the forces led by Emperor Andross. Your ability to maneuver the ARWING fighter will make the difference between the return of peace to the Lylat system and the fall of Corneria to the evil Emperor. As a team leader, you are also responsible for the safe return of your Star Fox teammates.
    —Star Fox; Instruction manual, pg 3

    Planet V: Fortuna

    Fortuna is also known as the Dinosaur Planet and is prowled by untamed and brutal creatures. Andross has fed and gained control of these brutes and plans the turn them into living weapons. The giant dragon, Monarch Dodora, is the living spirit of this planet and has powers exceeding state-of-the-art weapons. His name is feared throughout the Lylat system.
    —Star Fox 1993; Instruction Booklet

    Planet IV: Corneria

    The fourth planet in the Lylat System, Corneria, is known as the "bread basket" of the system. It is a fertile farming world with a variety of climates and terrains. Most of the inhabitants live in the shelter of the mountain ranges, where the most productive farming soil can be found. Corneria is a peaceful planet with only the smallest defense forces. Most of its starships are designed for exploration and transportation. When Andross's invasion fleet threatened the planet, it was up to General Pepper to improvise some kind of planetary defense. He hired the Star Fox Team to pilot the experimental Arwing Fighters.
    —Star Fox 1993 Instruction Booklet

    Planet III: Macbeth

    Macbeth has a long history of geological disasters which have changed its very shape. In a unique geological occurrence, the core of the planet shrank while the crust remained the same size, making much of the planet hollow. Andross has used this to his advantage, stockpiling the world with weapons, ammunition and spare ships. As a result of the amount of weaponry storewide there, the planet is a gigantic bomb waiting to explode.
    —Star Fox 1993; Instruction Booklet

    Planet II: Titania

    Titania has no indigenous creatures and is nearly always wrapped in a dense fog. This planet is known as a treasure world because of the large deposits of raw minerals that can be found there. While it has not been as hard hit by Andross's invasion fleet as some planets have, it is occupied by a large garrison of his troops. The resources here are extremely valuable to Andross's plans of future conquest.
    —Star Fox 1993; Instruction Booklet

    Planet I: Venom

    When Andross was driven out of Corneria by Director General Pepper, he occupied this planet as his base. While it used to be known as the "evergreen planet", and boasted beauty second only to Corneria's, Andross has re-made it into a dark, polluted world of military machines. The natives, who were not advanced, were enslaved by Andross, and drafters into his military machine. Though they serve Andross, they can inwardly hope that the forces of Corneria can win a victory and liberate the Lylat system.

    The Arwing's Arsenal


    This Laser Cannon, eqipped in the nose of the Arwing, fires a powerful laser beam.
    —Star Fox 1993; Instruction Booklet, pg 13

    Twin Blaster

    By collecting the Twin Blaster item, you can fire two laser beam Blasters simultaneously, one from each wing. When one ore both of your wings are destroyed, you will revert back to a single Blaster firing out of your ship's nose.
    —Star Fox 1993; Instruction Booklet, pg 13

    Nova Bomb

    This will damage all the enemies that are within range of the explosion. While it is powerful enough to destroy some enemies, very strong ones will be only damaged by this weapon. You can carry up to five of these bombs, which are obtained by collecting Nova Bomb items.
    —Star Fox 1993; Instruction Booklet, pg 13

    Power Shield

    This powerful defensive shield can be obtained by taking a Shield Item. While the Power Shield is active, your ship will become transparent (wire frame) and will not take damage from enemy attacks or collisions. After you have suffered a certain number of attacks or collided with a certain number of objects, the Power Shield will wear off and your ship will return to its original form and take normal damage.
    —Star Fox 1993; Instruction Booklet, pg 13


    The amount of damage that is subtracted from your damage meter depend on what part of your ship is hit (or damaged in collision with an obstacle). For example, if only your wing undergoes a shock, the damage to your shield meter will only be half what it would be if the body of your ship were hit. If the damage goes beyond the tolerance of your wing, the wing will be destroyed. You should pay attention to your shield meter at all times.
    —Star Fox 1993; Instruction Booklet, pg 14

    Recovery From Damage

    Your shield meter will refill whenever you complete a stage. Certain items will also help you recover from damage. If your wing is only damaged, it will be repaired when the body of your ship is repaired. Once your wing is completely broken, you will be stuck in that condition even if your shield meter is refilled by items. The only way to repair a destroyed wing is to collect a Wing Gyro.

    Star Fox 64 Site

    The Official Star Fox 64 site contains interesting info on the then upcoming N64 game that we all know well and dear. The info is generally full of excerpts from the Nintendo Power Strategy Guide, like General Pepper's Flight Log and Astronomical Readings, but the website even contains details that are not even present in the guide, like Slippy having to use Arwing scrap metal and spare parts to build the Blue-Marine, Solar is an actual planet and not a sun, as well as giving us an idea that just about every enemy in the game is a follower of Andross, wether they are loyal soldiers in his army, bio-tech monstrosities or automated drones.

    It is worth noting that the site does contain some errors; being the incorrect flight paths on occasion, and the site uses the incorrect identification of the snowy planet Fichina as Fortuna, which is corrected in later games, we at Arwingpedia made changes to the errors/details to be more traditional.

    The Star Fox 64 Game

    Now you can see, hear and feel the power of the Nintendo 64! This masterpiece from Shigeru Miyamoto will launch you into a futuristic world of space combat like you've never experienced before. Combine great real-time 3-D game play with the innovative Rumble Pak Controller Accessory (available separately), and you'll be immersed in the interplanetary struggles of the Star Fox Team. And now it's available at the low Player's Choice price of $39.95!
    Graphically, Star Fox 64 takes full advantage of the power of the Nintendo 64 to produce realistic, 3-D environments full of alien adversaries. Skim over the surface of an alien sea, weave through the concrete canyons of a futuristic metropolis, or dodge planetoids the size of mountains. Between missions, you'll be treated to real-time 3-D movies that progress the story of the Star Fox Team of space mercenaries in their struggle against the evil ape emperor, Andross. The seamless transitions from action to story give Star Fox 64 a truly unique, cinematic feel.
    Equipped with the Rumble Pak, the Nintendo 64 Controller becomes a new implement for fun. Not only does the Rumble Pak provide force-feedback in response to the game action, the Controller's analog Control Stick gives you total, precise control of your vehicle, be it a sleek "Arwing" starfighter, an armored "Landmaster" tank, or the deep-diving "Blue-Marine" submersible.
    The game's fifteen missions link together in a number of possible paths to your final objective: a show-down on Venom, the home planet of the interplanetary tyrant, Andross. Throughout your adventure, you'll have to accomplish challenging objectives in order to reach and conquer every mission. There are two different mission modes in the game; 3-D scroll and all-range. A 3-D scroll mission thrusts you forward into the conflict, and requires intense, split-second reactions. Multiple paths are possible through these scrolling missions, depending on the choices you make. All-range mode missions enable you to maneuver in full 360-degrees, and to put your Arwing through radical combat maneuvers like loop-the-loops and high energy turns.
    Star Fox 64's sound effects and music add to the cinematic feel of the game. Over 700 voice samples allow for almost constant radio chatter between Fox McCloud and his wingmen. Enemy characters will also get in on the act, taunting you as you oppose them.
    In addition to the adventure of the Main Game, Star Fox 64 includes a Training mode to help new pilots learn the ropes, and VS. mode that lets you take on one to three friends in a free-for-all multi-player battle royale. Star Fox 64 is the ultimate video game space combat adventure, and it's only available on Nintendo 64.

    Sound Downloads

    One of the most impressive features of Star Fox 64 is the real-time cockpit transmissions during the game. This type of immediate sound data response is possible only with the super-fast data transmission speeds of the Nintendo 64's cartridge system. Altogether, there are hundreds of voice samples in Star Fox 64; we've taken our favorites and made them available as WAV files for your enjoyment. You can use your browser's Save function to save them to your computer. Some browsers allow you to right-click the link, then select a 'Save Link As' option - this is one of the easiest ways to download sound files.

    VS. Mode

    Star Fox 64's multi-player mode allows two to four players to dogfight in three different modes and arenas. The screen is always split into quadrants, with the unused quadrants (in the case of a two or three player game) displaying dramatic camera angles of the battle.
    The three different modes each offers a different challenge. In Point Match, the first player to amass a certain number of kills (the goal can be set from 1 to 5) wins. Battle Royale mode is a fight to the finish, where the last animal standing wins. Finally, Time Trial challenges you to shoot down more drones than the other players in a certain amount of time (1 to 5 minutes). If you shoot down another player, you will reset their score.
    Point Match and Battle Royale can be fought in the skies of Corneria or in the hydrogen clouds of Sector Z. Time Trial takes place on Katina or Sector Z. When you play in VS. Mode, you'll usually only have access to the Arwing fighter as your vehicle. However, if you get medals in every mission, you will be able to play the game in Expert Mode, and this will allow you to use Landmaster tanks in VS. Mode. Once you earn medals in every mission playing in Expert Mode, you will be able to use Rocket Launchers in VS. Mode. In order to earn the medals, you must destroy a certain number of enemies in each stage while keeping your wingmen alive through the mission.
    In each battle mode game, a single Twin Laser power-up and Bomb will appear at random in the arena. The player with the Twin Lasers has a huge firepower advantage over the other players, so be sure to head straight for the power-up when it appears. Likewise, a well placed Bomb will really put the hurt on your opponent's shield. There are many strategies in the multi-player games and each one plays differently. The VS. Mode is a great feature that really complements the Main Game of Star Fox 64.

    Rumble Pak

    Star Fox 64 supports the Rumble Pak Controller Accessory, a revolutionary force-feedback device that plugs into the Nintendo 64 Controller. Once installed, the Rumble Pak will vibrate in response to specific events that occur during the game. The varying vibrations draw the player into the game by providing additional information about the game conditions. For example, if you're getting pegged from behind by enemy fire, the Rumble Pak will shake to let you know! There are several different vibration levels, from the gentle rumble triggered when you hit the booster rockets to the fierce shaking that simulates the buffeting effect of a cataclysmic explosion.

    Star Fox Team

    Fox McCloud
    Fox Run SF64.jpg
    Fox McCloud was a cadet at the Cornerian Defense Army Academy when he heard the news that his father, James McCloud, had met a violent end at the hands of the twisted genius, Andross. The senior McCloud had been betrayed by his own wingman, Pigma Dengar, and delivered into a deadly trap from which there was seemingly no escape. Only James's wingman, Peppy Hare, managed to limp home in his badly damaged starfighter. As the only survivor of the original Star Fox Team, Peppy insisted that the young Fox take on the leadership of the group and form a new team of pilots. Thrust into the leadership role that he wasn't prepared for, Fox recruited the hot-tempered Falco Lombardi and the mechanical genius Slippy Toad to make up the new Star Fox Team. For a price, this crack group will fight against any threat to the Cornerian star system. Although it may appear that the Star Fox Team is motivated only by financial gain, it will only accept missions that serve to uphold justice.

    The Star Fox Team's avian member, Falco, is at home in the air or in space, and pilots his Arwing fighter like a true virtuoso. Falco may sometimes act hostile, but he's a good friend of Fox and most of his insults are meant to be good-natured ribbing. A lot of Falco's rebellious tendencies come from his time as a member of a group of "space hot-rodders." If he could curb his reckless tendencies and quick temper, he could mature into a better pilot than Fox.

    Exiled to the distant penal planet of Venom for his destructive and dangerous experiments with bio-technology, the mad scientist Andross has recently resurfaced as the supreme commander of a seemingly unstoppable military force. Striking without warning, his invasion fleets have overrun the minimal defenses outposts of the many planets in the Lylat system, and are even now attacking the most populous world in the system, Corneria. As a scientist on Corneria, Andross specialized in bio-technology and space warps. It is theorized that exposure to his own deadly experiments may have driven him mad. In the time since his exile, who knows how his continued experimental work may have affected him?
    —Star Fox
    Star Wolf
    Funded and equipped by Andross, the Star Wolf team is a group of elite evil pilots who defend the key routs to Venom. The Star Wolf team is lead by Wolf O'Donnel, a vicious pilot who seems to be trying to prove that he is as good a pilot as Fox McCloud. Other members include the traitorous Pigma Dengar, who led Fox's father James McCloud into Andross's clutches; Leon Powalski, a mysterious reptilian pilot who likes to make his opponents suffer before he destroys them, and Andrew Oikonny, whining nephew of Andross. The Star Wolf team always flies the most advanced version of Andross's "Wolfen" class starfighters. These starfighter prototypes may even be superior to the Star Fox team's Arwings….
    —Star Fox
    Andross's evil ambition has served as a magnet to attract the scum of the Lylat system into his service. The most powerful and intelligent of his followers have been promoted to positions of leadership in Andross's military machine, and have been given command of specialized war machines of great power. Andross has dispatched these key lieutenants to seize strategic locations throughout the Lylat system. The machines they control come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and are always accompanied by fleets of support craft. The Star Fox team will face a different lieutenant at the end of each mission. Some mission paths will lead to encounters with different lieutenants.
    —Star Fox
    Andross's legions of minions have been mustered from sources throughout the Lylat system. From bio-tech enhanced monsters from the abysses of Aquas to mechanized starfighters assembled in Macbeth's weapons labs, Andross's minions have one thing in common: they are expendable. Each fighter pilot is expected to willingly give his life for the emperor; each robot is programmed to destroy or be destroyed, and each mindless bio-tech drone has been conditioned to think only one thought -- Destroy Star Fox!

    The Arwing starfighter is the primary battle vehicle of the Star Fox Team, and is the almost the symbol of their team. Developed by Space Dynamics Co., Ltd., the Arwing is equipped with the revolutionary G-Diffuser system, an anti-gravity device which allows the pilot to accelerate or decelerate instantaneously and perform a wide variety of high performance combat maneuvers. By executing a barrel roll, the Arwing can also generate a electromagnetic shield which will deflect most optically based weapons, such as laser beams. The Arwings used by the Star Fox Team are much different from any production versions as they have been extensively modified with improved armor and advanced weapon systems, such as Hyper Laser Homing Bolts and Smart Bombs.

    The Landmaster tank was originally being developed by Space Dynamics Co., Ltd. as an armored exploration vehicle. However, when the Star Fox Team required a land based combat vehicle, it was converted by adding stronger battle armor and weapons systems. The only prototype is now part of the Star Fox Team's arsenal. Although primarily a ground based assault weapon, the Landmaster can also hover for a short time, and can roll from side to side to help it avoid land mines and enemy attacks.

    The mechanical genius of the Star Fox Team, Slippy Toad, kitbashed the Blue-Marine out of spare parts and scrap metal. Although originally intended as a recreational vehicle, it was pressed into service when the Star Fox Team was called to action on the water world of Aquas. Since some of its parts originally came from Arwings, the Blue-Marine shares some characteristics with the star fighter. For example, it has a similar laser cannon, and by rolling it can generate an electromagnetic force field. It is a testament to Slippy's engineering skill that the Blue-Marine could be made battle-worthy on such short notice. The submersible has one weakness, and this is the fact that its visual sensors were not designed to work in the darkness of great depths; it was instead designed to use sonar. Therefore, in order to see clearly in the murky abyss, the Blue-Marine must use "Light Bomb" torpedoes, of which it has an unlimited supply.

In addition, the ship is streamlined for atmospheric re-entry, making it capable of landing the Landmaster or Blue-Marine if necessary. Great Fox is stocked with all manner of supplies for the Star Fox Team, including food, clothing and replacement parts. In fact, Great Fox is the mobile home of the Star Fox Team. The late James McCloud contracted Space Dynamics Co., Ltd., to build Great Fox, and took out an 80 year loan to pay for its construction. The Star Fox Team is still using the prize money from their mercenary mission to repay this loan. ROB64, the robotic pilot of Great Fox, is wired directly into the ship's controls. Even though Great Fox rarely participates in the Star Fox Team's missions, it is a very important asset for the team.

    The temperate world of Corneria is known as the jewel of the Lylat system. Although the planet is home to 85% of the Lylat system's population, its industry and cities are built in harmony with nature. Corneria is the center of government, culture and politics for the Lylat system.
    —Star Fox

    Mission Briefing

    The Star Fox Team faces their first test on their home world of Corneria, where the military situation is deteriorating in the wake of Andross's assault. Andross's advance forces have breached the planet's defenses at several points and are assaulting the capital city! Although the Cornerian Defense Forces have held on for as long as possible, General Pepper finally has to call on the Star Fox Team for help. The main thrust of Andross's attack on Corneria is centered around the old army base in Corneria City. Approaching the city through the southern canyon will give the team the element of surprise. As the Star Fox Team's fighters move to destroy enemy fighters and ground forces, they'll have to be on the look out for falling rubble from the city's buildings, and for berserk construction robots!

    Intelligence: After the checkpoint, three enemy ships will chase Falco. Destroy these three ships, and then fly through all of the arches ahead. Falco will lead you to an alternate path through the mission which will take you to a different lieutenant, and to Sector Y.

    Mission Briefing

    Cornerian probes have picked up enemy activity in the Meteo planetoid system. Andross has built a planetoid crusher to clear a way through the belt for his invasion fleet. If this natural defensive barrier is penetrated, Corneria will be open to attack by Andross's battleships. Pilots will need to keep a sharp eye on the floating planetoids as they fly through the system. The movement of these gigantic boulders is usually predictable, but if any of those rocks collide, it could send them careening off in wild directions. Scientific expeditions to the belt have scanned some unusual warp energy readings in the sector. These warp emissions cannot be ignored since they may be part of Andross's attack plan.

    Intelligence - Finding the source of the warp emissions will take you to another dimension, where you can rack up some more points and score some bonus items!

    The best way to get the medal in Meteo is to take the warp to Katina. To enter the warp, fly through the six warp gates to enter the warp zone. You will pick up speed after you go through each warp gate, so you will need to anticipate the positions of the warp gates and react quickly. The warp is filled with enemies and power-up items. Use bombs liberally because you can easily collect more in the warp area. When you reach clusters of items, do a loop to collect as many as possible.

    Mission Briefing

    Corneria's main battle fleet has suffered severe losses in Sector Y! A huge space battle has left our flagship crippled-- or perhaps worse. Debriefed survivors have told tales of a new attack squadron of gigantic, humanoid battle suits in the area. Although it may be too late to rescue the Cornerian fleet from disaster, the Star Fox Team must storm the area and knock out these new iron soldiers of Andross! Their shields will deflect anything but a direct laser hit, so aim carefully! These giant robots are, of course, accompanied by the usual screen of highly maneuverable starfighters.

Bill has also informed Cornerian Command that an enemy mother ship has been detected on its way to the planet. Husky Squadron will need the Star Fox Team's help to deal with this gigantic threat. Bill will brief you more fully on the gargantuan mother ship when you get there, so listen to him carefully!

    Macbeth is well known as a mineral treasure house. The planet has a relatively large population of miners, who have recently been enslaved by Andross to manufacture weapons and supplies for his armies.
    —Star Fox

    Mission Briefing

    Macbeth is the industrial key to Andross's military machine. Liberating this planet from his clutches will cripple his ability to produce additional weaponry. In addition, this is the main launching point for the interplanetary cruise missiles Andross has been using to assault Corneria. Resistance fighters on Macbeth have gotten information on a gigantic train that transports minerals and weapons from the mines and factories to Andross's main base and launching area. Although the train's route is well defended, derailing that train and stopping its shipment will be a crippling blow to Andross's plans.

Successfully hitting all of these targets will cause the train to take an incomplete side spur, which will net you 50 bonus points when it derails. The sixth switch is the most commonly overlooked, since it is hidden behind a gate.

    Sector Z


    Astronomic Data

    An impossibly huge letter Z formed from space dust looms in Sector Z. Of the three different space dust sectors, Sector Z is the most dangerous. Not only do strange magnetic waves here make navigation difficult, but the area is also strewn with the wreckage of an epic battle from several decades earlier when Cornerian Forces defeated Space Pirates.
    —Star Fox

    Mission Briefing

    No one is sure what Andross is planning in Sector Z. It's a space graveyard full of wrecked warships, so he may be scavenging them for parts. The Star Fox Team's Arwing fighters are the only ships available that might be able to maneuver through the hazardous fields of space junk. The team's mission: scout the Sector, but use caution! It could be a trap...

    Intelligence - Destroy all six missiles to proceed on to Area 6.

    Medal Tips

    Medal Score: 100 hits

    Try to destroy the first wave of fighters before the first missile arrives. Once the second wave of missiles appears, you'll have to concentrate on the missiles. Throughout this fight, you'll have your hands full fending off the missiles and keeping your wingmen alive. The mission will end as soon as a missile hits Great Fox, so you've got to concentrate on that threat once they appear. This is one of the most challenging medals to win.

    Astronomical Data

    Bolse is an artificial satellite created by Andross to defend Venom. Due to the size of this structure, and the magnetic energy generated by its forcefield, it is surrounded by a strong gravitational field. A classified design document obtained from Andross's archives reveals that destroying the six generator pylons will neutralize its forcefield.
    —Star Fox

    Mission Briefing

    Andross's super defense satellite, Bolse, is the last line of defense before Venom. Only a minimal amount of information on this satellite exists. A powerful forcefield protects it from remote scanning and makes the weapons of a large capital ship useless against it. A small strike team of fighters, such as the Star Fox Team, might be able to bring down the forcefield and attack the core. Watch out for the Star Wolf team-- they are sure to be on the prowl this close to Venom. With Bolse out of the way, the path to Venom will be clear.

    Intelligence - The strange gravitational field swirls around the station's force field. It will accellerate your ship if you go in one direction, and it will slow you down if you go in the opposite direction. You can use this to your advantage in destroying the forcefield pylons.

    Medal Tips

    Medal Score: 150 hits 

    Destroy all of the energy towers to drop the force field around Bolse's power block. Once down, enemy fighters will pour out of the base. Destroy as many of these as you can before Star Wolf arrives. Once they get there, try to knock them out as quickly as possible, since they will really go after your wingmen. If you defeat them quickly, you can earn up to 10 bonus hit points per Star Wolf team member.

    Area 6


    Astronomical Data

    This area of space has no unusual features, but it is the most convenient atmospheric re-entry point from which to strike at Andross's home base. The legendary battle station Death Ball, which is equipped with a matter-displacement device, is said to control this area of space.
    —Star Fox

    Mission Briefing 

    Area 6 is the Cornerian Defense Force's military designation for the most heavily defended sector of space around the planet Venom. It is actually the most effective attack point to strike at Andross's palace, which would explain the heavy defenses. Cornerian forces simply do not have the strength to punch through these defenses, but a small, quick team like Star Fox might have a chance. If you can make it through the defensive cordon here, you'll have a straight attack run on Andross himself!

    Intelligence - Good luck!

    Checkpoint Goal: 150 hits

    You may not have many bombs by time you reach this stage, but these high explosives will come in handy to destroy missiles and the ships that link up into one. You can destroy the big cruisers by shooting them in the bridge, but it takes a lot of shots. Be sure to clear their decks of guns before you go after the bridge. Good luck getting this medal; it is one of the toughest in the game!

    Planetary Compendium

    Venom is a harsh frontier world on the periphery of the Lylat system. The atmosphere is almost unbreathable, and the rocky surface is broken by rough cliffs and chasms. Because of its distance from Corneria, it has never been fully explored.
    —Star Fox

    Mission Briefing 

    Very little information about the mysterious planet of Venom is available. Andross has undoubtedly built a base of maze-like tunnels going deep into the planet. Because his base is hewn from solid rock, there is no way to learn anything about it from orbit. At this point, the Star Fox Team will be up against the most elite of enemy forces. The Star Wolf team is sure to show up, and will be flying the most advanced ships in Andross's arsenal. This will be the team's last battle before going up against Andross himself, so be prepared to fight hard!

    Intelligence - You'll face a different version of Andross depending on which path you took to Venom.

    Synopsis (Instruction Booklet)

    Eight years have passed since Andross was finally overthrown by the daring Star Fox team. Following the celebrations, Fox McCloud and friends returned to the only life they knew - an endless patrol of the Lylat system, guarding against ongoing threats to their territory.
    Boredom soon struck, causing Fox's close friend Falco Lombardi to simply disappear, leaving only rumour to suggest that his lone-wolf nature had finally led him to pursue a more free and profitable life.
    Then Slippy Toad traded his pilot's wings for a place in Weapons R&D, demonstration a natural flair for invention, while Fox's old friend and mentor Peppy Hare retired from active flight duty to concentrate on a role as a navigator and general adviser.
    The Great Fox itself had also seen better days. Keeping a ship of that size in prime condition cost serious money, and well-paid jobs for fighter pilots and mercenaries were increasingly difficult to come by.
    So it was that Fox and co. found themselves drifting through the galaxy, waiting and hoping for General Pepper's hologram to pop up with just the kind of high-stakes, high-reward mission that they might need…

    One year has passed since disaster was averted on Sauria, and Andross's armies have been almost eradicated... but now a new threat has risen from the darkness of space. The aparoids, creatures bent on assimilating all beasts and machines into their corrupted hive mind, are spreading relentlessly, and Team Star Fox is the only thing standing between them and the utter ruin of the Lylat system.

    Fox Stands Alone...

    In days gone by, the burning desire of Dr. Andross to rule the Lylat system filled the galaxy with the chaos of war. The mad ape sent out wave after wave of armies from his stronghold on the planet Venom, and used unique forms of radiation to create horrible monsters and terrible soldiers. His ambition swept this army across the galaxy too the planet Corneria.
    It was there, however, that a quartet of mercenaries known as Star Fox put an end to the threat, and the leader of the team, Fox McCloud, defeated Andross in single combat.
    In the years that followed, Venom was designated a forbidden planet and placed under the rigorous watch of Cornerian forces. All was going well until a mysterious army suddenly sprung forth from the toxic seas of the the planet. Controlled by a mysterious leader called the Anglar Emperor, this new threat cuts through the Lylat system like a scythe through ripe wheat. The unexpected attack once again places the peoples, cities, and culture of the Lylat system in dire peril.
    But much to the shock and dismay of the Lylat people, the members of Star Fox have gone their separate ways... leaving Fox McCloud as the lone obstacle in the Anglar army's path. Despite the odds, Fox heroically launches himself into the fray. But can he survive without the aid of his former teammates?
