**** Or Leon has *become* more unhinged further down the line, possibly due to damage/destruction of his ship in SF64

* In ''Star Fox 64'', there's those two warp zones that serve as alternate routes that you can take. However, what sort of space pilot interested in their own self-preservation would knowingly fly into one of these unknown anomalies? What if it's a gravitic singularity that rips your ship to shreds instantly? What if you come into contact with antimatter and get vaporized? What if you end up trapped in a pocket dimension and are forced to fight a giant slot machine for all eternity?

* What exactly is Slippy's contribution to the team? How does he rate against the average Cornerian or Venomian pilot? If Slippy's forte is more in being a scientist/analyst/technician than a combat pilot, then shouldn't he be sitting back on the Great Fox while someone else like Bill or Katt flies his Arwing?
* What is with Andross's "you know that I control the galaxy" line? Isn't the scale of the conflict limited to the Lylat System, or did we all miss something? Just how much of the galaxy in the Star Fox universe is explored and settled anyway? And if Andross really did control the entire galaxy outside of the Lylat system, how could he have had any difficulty at all in crushing puny Corneria?

*** Gaining experience is great and all, but there's a reason the guys who've just gotten their wings aren't immediately posted to any command role. They need to gain flight hours and actual combat experience under the leadership of someone who already knows what he's doing in order to know how to command their wing properly. Of course, Star Fox is free to do whatever they want, but that doesn't make it a good idea.

** Old age? Defference to the son of the old leader? Letting th younger generation gain experience? Since Star Fox is a paramillitary group they can pretty much do what they want.

** Possibly some combination of recognizing his own waning skills, wanting to groom up the young ones so that when he isn't around, the team doesn't fall to pieces, and realizing that Fox is a prodigious pilot and field tactician, and voluntarily stepping aside for that reason

*** Possibly there's some form of Prime Directive that explicitly regulates bringing advanced weaponry to a planet during first contact. Both for diplomatic purposes (doesn't look good showing up to a first meeting armed to the teeth), and for practicality (you don't want to accidentally arm a potentially/actively hostile race with advanced weaponry). Or, alternatively, Fox has a bit of a...reputation... for what happens when he has a Blaster, and that is that he gets a bit trigger-happy. At least with the staff and Fire Blast, he has to consciously focus on it.

** Wolf is a proper first name, need I remind you that a certain 18th century [[Music/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.
