Papetoon, eh? Yeah, that's pretty much the edge of everything right there.
Falco Lombardi

Papetoon is a planet at a distant corner of the Lylat System.


According to the Japanese manual and introduction for Star Fox 64, it was the home of Fox McCloud, and where Peppy Hare flew after Pigma Dengar's betrayal to tell him what happened to his father, James. It was not mentioned in any English Star Fox games until one of the endings for Star Fox Command. It may have been ignored by enemy forces either because it was too isolated, or it may be too small to bother invading. In Star Fox Command's "The Curse of Pigma" ending, Fox invites Falco for a quiet drink on Papetoon, where he claims that it's "on the very edge of everything". The ending also gives a possibility of Papetoon's position on the Lylat map, judging by the Great Fox's flight path, the planet is located somewhere in the direction of VenomTitania and Sector X.

In the Comic

It first appeared in early supplemental Star Fox materials such as the Star Fox comic and the Star Fox Mission File Printout, where it is depicted as a mostly dry and rocky frontier world. In this version, it was the "den" of a small group of bandits led by Fox that only stole from the Imperial Guard in the name of the oppressed. General Pepper approached the team since he recognized their invaluable skills and asked them to fly his experimental Arwings against Andross. Fox agreed due to the past with his father, and his rogues would become the esteemed Star Fox team.


  • Papetoon is similar to Luke Skywalker's homeworld of Tatooine. Both are desert worlds and are the homeworlds of the main characters.
  • Papetoon is mentioned in Starlink: Battle for Atlas when Fox mentions that Papetoon is his home planet, or rather, reconfirms it as his birthplace.
