** 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.

* Throughout the series, Peppy is easily the most experienced pilot of the bunch. He's been through hell and back defeating Andross the first time around while the others were still in diapers, and in ''64'' he's the only one with any substantial flight experience. So why isn't he the flight lead?

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

* In ''Star Fox Guard'' a bunch of robots try to steal precious metals from Grippy. Who do these robots belong to?

** Secondary theory. She IS stated to be an empath. Perhaps she picked up Lylatian common from that, when she met Fox. Something like how Starfire in Teen Titans picks up languages.

** On a Meta Level most likely but in universe the enemies you fight at Sector Y are for sure not only sent to Corneria but as well to Katina as both Planets neighbour Sector Y. In this Tropers eyes meeting 100 kills means that you weakend Andross forces enough to ease things a bit for Bill and his guys. If you don't hit that (psychologically important) mark of 100 kills, General Pepper thinks that Katina needs help ans Asks fox to go there, as saving Katina is more important then the Bioweapon on Aquas.

* Does anyone else feel like the star Fox series as a whole hasn't been developed very well? I don't mean game-wise, but rather continuity-wise. The characters up through Assault haven't been given a lot of in-game depth (this troper hasn't played Command; the word from a relative who has is that it's only marginally better in that game), and the universe as a whole doesn't feel developed beyond a series of things for you to shoot at. If there's backstory, it's AllInTheManual, and almost never explored in-game; this seems wholly dissatisfying to me, because there seems to be a lot of potential avenues of exploration here. It seems like the Star Fox series cries out for some expansion and depth that other long-running Nintendo series don't really need so much (e.g. Mario, Legend of Zelda, Metroid).

* Why is it that, in Star Fox 64/3D, if you get less than 100 hits/kills at Sector Y, you're sent to Katina (unless you restart the level and try getting at least 100 hits/kills)? Is it (still) suppose to be a test to see if you are capable of taking on the red path levels, like the dialogue you hear during the level?

** I should clarify. "That minigame" is not the gambling one, but the one where the Lightfoots tie you to a totem pole and surround you with Lightfoots with spears, rotate the pole some random amount, and have a Lightfoot approach and jab you with a spear if you haven't fended him off, rotate it again, and so on until you're all the way dead or all his troops have given up. This is apparently what they do to thieves, and the Shopkeeper is demonstrably not above theft to gain wares for his shop; at least three of his items were stolen from others: Tricky's Ball, the Hi-Def Display Device, and the Golden Root. (I would even count it likely that the Fuel Cells he stocks are some of the ones ROB beamed down.) Given this propensity, he would likely run afoul of them... but as he can teleport, they wouldn't be able to hold him for long.
