* The game over in the cancelled ''Star Fox 2'' if [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rw4z_GN1BZ4 you let Corneria fall]]. It shows Andross' fighters attacking Corneria City. But the most heartbreaking part is when the distress call goes out, with an unnamed woman saying "Emergency. Emergency. Incoming enemy fighters. Coming f-". Then, an explosion cuts to the game over with some creepy music.
* The cutscene after you accomplish the final mission in ''Star Fox 64'' after playing the HARD route. [[spoiler:The final boss had been defeated, but the complex was exploding with Fox still inside... Then his father appears and leads him to safety before vanishing]]. To underscore it, if Peppy was ''not'' shot down in the battle with Star Wolf, when [[spoiler:Fox is looking around trying to figure out where his dad went]], Peppy asks Fox if there's a problem. Fox stammers, "N-nothing. Nothing's wrong." but with the original Japanese audio, you can tell Fox is fighting back tears.
* From ''Star Fox Assault'': [[spoiler:Peppy and Rob's HeroicSacrifice. Particularly the part where Fox says: "Peppy... you mustn't."]]

** This scene also gets used in the ending of ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero'' [[spoiler:(this time regardless of how you get to Andross)]], and this time around, the English audio manages to make it clear that Fox is having a hard time holding himself together.

* Say what you will about it, but the ending melody to the [[MultipleEndings nine endings]] of ''Star Fox Command'' is heart-bending and tear-worthy, especially considering that most of the endings are [[BittersweetEnding very bittersweet]] or [[DownerEnding outright depressing]]. The humble melody invokes a feeling that someone is saying good-bye for the last time, or that hope is fading...

* For most of ''64'', if Fox falls in battle, his wingmen scream for his life. However, during the final sections of either Venom path, [[DyingAlone when he's taking on Andross alone, if ''he'' dies, you hear ''his'' screams instead]]. It's [[GuiltBasedGaming a pretty heartwrenching incentive to stay alive]].

** When Slippy calls the place a dump, Falco just responds "I hear ya, Slippy" in the most resigned tone possible. Considering it's one of the few times in the game he drops the tough guy act, it really makes you wonder what's going through his mind.
