* The changes made to the characters in ''Star Fox Command'' bug me: Bill's change from surfer dude to southern hick (same goes with Wolf, if SuperSmashBros Brawl is to be believed), Kat's fur color change from pink to gray, Panther suddenly channeling the speech patterns of Doctor Doom, etc. Then again, that concerns me less than the fact that the creators hinted the next game will supposedly be set in the middle of ''Command'', essentially making ''half the game and all of its endings moot''.

** [[Franchise/MetalGear Colonel]] described them as one in [[SuperSmashBros Brawl]], calling them a "commando-for-hire" group.

* Something that's bugged me since the end of VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures - did Krystal learn English? Or does the whole team still use a translator to understand her?

* Am I the only one who liked VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures (Dinosaur Planet, if you really can't stand that name)? I never understood why people found it so bad.

* In StarFoxAdventures, why does Krystal's staff work on so many things? It's like a universal lock pick on Dinosaur Planet. There are even places all around the world where you can upgrade your staff using compatable magic. However, Krystal acts like the staff is hers and has been all along, like it came from Cernia. So why is it that her staff interacts so well with Dinosaur Planet?

* General Pepper sending Fox to Dinosaur Planet without ''any'' weapons in VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures. What the hell. "You're supposed to be saving the planet, not blowing it up". So apparently using blasters would make the planet explode...and yet Krystal's staff fires energy bolts as its ''very first upgrade'', and nothing bad happens. I can understand not letting Fox use the Landmaster or a rocket launcher because it would've been over-excessive, but are you seriously telling me that he couldn't have let Fox bring along a pistol or some other sidearm in case things went south? Heck, he could've at least brought a baton or knife with him! It's a jungle planet populated by ''dinosaurs'', for crying out loud!\\\

**Unless the maps are just representative of the team's mission queue. If they displayed the planets on a realistic scale or positioning, they'd take up a lot more space. Don't forget they explicitly state Corneria is the 4th planet of the Lylat System (in both the SNES and N64 continuities), if that's relative to Solar (which is ostensibly a planet in some appearances), then the maps are woefully misleading, if it's relative to an as-of-yet unvisited star called Lylat, then there is no frame of reference to it's position. In the SNES continuity, they explicitly state the order of the planets in the manual, but the map is broken down into sections representing each. I think we can safely assume Star Fox 64 just dropped the frame and kept the planets at a non-relative position to each other.

* How do the locals shop at the Thorntail Store? Even Tricky never enters. The Lightfoots (Lightfeet?) seem the most capable of patronizing it, though they'd probably end up trying to force the Shopkeeper to play that minigame, only to give up on account of teleportation. Anyway, it seems like 100% of business comes from Fox.

** He's confirmed to be some form of ape. His appearance seems to be based of Dr. Zaius from Planet Of The Apes, so yeah, he probably is an orangutang.

** Wolf is a proper first name, need I remind you that a certain 18th century [[WolfgangAmadeusMozart pianist]] went by it? As for Falco(n), odd but not unheard of to have a surname be applied to one's given name. There was a very famous [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} captain]] named "Falcon". Fox is obviously not his given name, rather an official nickname he received for he is cunning like a fox. As for Panther - His parents didn't love him enough to give him a proper name.

*** The cackling bat-demon (among other things) is what the R button is for. Though there are places where you can't use it, like in water and on ladders. (And a couple of the shrines put one of the other kinds of bats up there where it can attack you while you're on a ladder! For crying out loud, I'm trying to climb here!) But it's not like you're often hurting for health, or even at that, [=BaFomDads=], right?

Added DiffLines:
**** No, it is also somewhat down to luck -- the indicator seems to move at different strengths, so sometimes you pretty much can't counter its movement before it hits the edge of the green -- in addition to being misleading without actually telling you how it does work. For those who don't know or don't remember, this test comes near the end of a section that started with a required minigame with an indicator on a gauge that looked extremely close to the one used in the Test of Fear. But while the indicator swung back and forth over the green area and you pressed A to stop it -- hopefully while it was over the green area -- in that minigame, in the Test of Fear, the A button is not used; instead, you use the Control Stick to move the indicator in an attempt to keep it from hitting either edge of the green area. But nothing in-game tells you this. You either have to intuit it somehow, or be told by someone who knows.

Added DiffLines:
** I like it overall, but there are a few things I don't like, such as the aforementioned Test of Fear, the shoddy Dino subtitles, the poorly-implemented Sound Test (seriously, why not give us names for these tracks? Even a number, either decimal or hexidecimal, would have been better than nothing at all. And what's up with Slippy snapping his fingers regardless of what's playing?) But, y'know. I've replayed it multiple times

* If you look at the maps of Star Fox 1, Star Fox 2, Star Fox 64, and Star Fox Command, the distances between locations are all fixed which implies that the Lylat System ''does not have Planetary Orbits''. The only aversion to this is Sauria which has day night cycles to confirm that it's rotating around a sun. Wouldn't the developer's decision to ignore the concept of Planetary Orbits have very, very dire consequences on the Lylat System and its inhabitants?
