* BeamMeUpScotty: Peppy's [[MemeticMutation memetic line]] "Do a barrel roll" is present in ''StarFox64'' but it is not constantly spammed throughout the game like most people think. He only says the line about two or three times in the entire game (once on Corneria and again on Meteo, the first and second levels in the game, to help illustrate the ability to deflect enemy fire, and one more time on either Macbeth or Titania while going over the controls for the Landmaster.

** James [=McCloud=] is not to be confused with the character from ''[[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} F-Zero X]]'', though that character is a blatant {{Expy}}/ShoutOut to this one.

* DevelopmentHell: Not counting remakes and cancelled projects, the series has only had five games throughout its troubled history which is due in part to the lack of popularity in Japan and having been handled by three different third-party companies.

** The SNES ''Star Fox'' and ''Star Fox 64'' were no exception to executive meddling. The European versions of the games were renamed Star Wing and Lylat Wars, respectively, because the creators of an 1983 Atari game, coincidentally named "Star Fox", had placed a trademark on the title in Europe, which, despite it never being released due to the failure of the system, it retained the trademark laws several years afterwards. Ironically, the meddling of the series name ended with ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', it being the first Star Fox game to actually keep its name in Europe.



* InspirationForTheWork: Miyamoto was a big fan of the ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'' series and that's why the character's mouths open and close so fast, they're supposed to be puppets. Miyamoto even admitted in an interview once that he secretly wanted to do a Star Fox TV show with the Thunderbirds team.

to:

* MarketBasedTitle: In PAL territories, ''Star Fox'' was known as ''Starwing'' and ''Star Fox 64'' was known as ''Lylat Wars''. Contrary to popular belief, this was not due to an existing 1983 UsefulNotes/Atari2600 game of the same name, [[http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2012/09/want_to_know_the_real_reason_star_fox_was_renamed_in_europe but rather because of Nintendo's worry that the European company [=StarVox=] would have an identical pronunciation in German.]] This issue was dropped by ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures''.

** In regards to the [[ArtificialLimbs metal legs]] the Star Fox crew sport, despite many people trying to justify their existence as helping the pilots deal with the G-force or that they are augmented specifically for field work, Miyamoto admits outright the only reason Star Fox pilots have metal legs was because he wanted them to appear a bit more human, and otherwise they are only there for RuleOfCool.
** "Do a barrel roll!" has become infamous for [[YouKeepUsingThatWord using the incorrect term]], in that the move the pilots are performing is actually an ''Aileron Roll''. Miyamoto confirms its addition was due directly to {{Woolseyism}}, when the game was first being translated the English team suggested the term "Barrel Roll" which made Miyamoto think of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' (since the titular ape would use barrels to attack) and fell in love with the name, so it stuck. In Japan, the move was just called "rolling".
* TalkingToHimself: In ''[[VideoGame/StarFox64 64]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/StarFoxAssault Assault]]'', Fox and James (the Aparoid-absorbed memories of him in the latter game, anyway) are portrayed by the same voice actors, Mike West and Jim Walker (per each game, respectively).
