Out of This Dimension is a secret level that acts as the alternate ending for the game.
In the game
To reach the External place on the Lylat Map, the route will need to be taken to the Level 3 Asteroid Belt after finishing Corneria on Level 3. Destroying the second large asteroid (the one on the right) a hidden egg should come out of its inside. It will fly away for a few seconds, then it will hatch into a giant Phoenix-like bird. By flying directly into the bird, the Mission will enter the Dimension.
This level is extremely dangerous and has a very high chance of the Arwing to explode as the enemies at the end of the level are nonstop, and they are annoying as they flip the letters of THE END if you don't defeat them. This level also probably has a high chance of motion sickness or epilepsy because of how the background is always lurching until you beat the Slot Machine.
The zone is comprised of black space filled with various colored, sized, smiling moons and cartoony stars. The background lurches and is distorted throughout the level, but this stops when the player defeats the Slot Machine. The only enemy found in this level is also exclusive to this level: the paper plane which is a small threat by itself, but can often swarm the player in large numbers. There are also pillars that come towards the player. The end boss of this level is the mysterious Slot Machine, which interestingly acts as if it has an artificial intelligence computer. The background will revert to a more stationary state after beating the "boss".
This level, unlike others, does not end after beating the boss, but instead plays on infinitely with the credits scrolling by. The player can then shoot at each of the letters of "THE END" and turn them over. When the player aligns the letters properly, however, the letters re-situate themselves. Enemies from the regular levels attack the player and the letters, causing the letters to scrambled around over and over. Death for the player is highly likely, as regular enemies continue to appear indefinitely and only very rarely drop supply rings.
The fate of the rest of the Star Fox team and Corneria is never directly revealed, although it is suggested by General Pepper's briefing ("Come in Arwings!! Fox, where are you?!! We need you to protect Corneria!!") that Andross would take advantage of Fox's disappearance to conquer the Lylat System. Thus, accessing this level is considered an automatic nonstandard game over.
Out of This Dimension appears in Star Fox as an easter egg in the game. The realm could be accessed by following a series of abnormal manoeuvres.
