* TheObiWan: Peppy. In ''Assault'', [[spoiler:Wolf also advises Fox, which helps him in the final battle]].
** [[spoiler:James]], even, in ''64''. "Never give up. Trust your instincts."
** This line was also spoken earlier by Peppy, one of several references to his being an "original member" of the team.

* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: It's not clear what kind of bird Falco is, but if he really is a falcon, well... there aren't too many bright blue examples of those. Krystal ''is'' a fox, but foxes aren't blue either (except for arctic foxes in certain regions, which have ''kind of'' blue winter coats). Don't forget pink frogs and cats too.

** Also, the original ''Star Fox'' for the SNES is usually considered this since ''Star Fox 64'' largely acted as a ContinuityReboot. This includes Fara Phoenix, and all of the other exclusive characters from the [[http://starfox.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Comics tie-in comic.]] Also Miyu, Fay and Algy, who only appeared in the unreleased ''Star Fox 2'', which is a direct sequel to the first game.

*** Falco and Katt are LikeBrotherAndSister though, since they've known each other for most of their lives.



** The original SNES games were Darker And Edgier than the subsequent games. Even though the basic plot was the same as ''Star Fox 64'', it was delivered in a much grimmer, less humorous style. The only real laughs in the games come from the crew's dialogue, and even that's a lot less pronounced than in the following games.
