* BittersweetEnding: When you complete the game with just Fox [=McCloud=] left in the squadron. Lylat is saved, but Fox is the SoleSurvivor of the Star Fox team.



* DownerEnding: Two kinds of them.
** [[spoiler:How the "Out of This Dimension" level ends. Basically, Fox has been sucked into a psychedelic black hole with no way to get out.]] Role credits. What makes this even more of a downer is when you really start to think about it. [[spoiler:General Pepper meanwhile is concerned, wondering where Fox is, saying that he has to protect Corneria. Without Fox to protect Corneria, Andross basically wins.]]
** When you complete the game with just Fox [=McCloud=] left in the squadron.



* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: For the little plot the game has, no one really KNOWS what [[spoiler:the slot machine's purpose is for. It MAY be connected to Andross, but that whole level makes NO sense.]]



* LoneWolfBoss: [[spoiler:The slot machine,]] [[MindScrew possibly.]]

** The Plasma Hydra will attempt to ram into you after its health is depleted. Just like with the Blade Barrier, dying from this means starting the fight over.

* DubNameChange: Two notable ones comparing the Japanese and English releases: [[SmartBomb Smart Bombs]] were changed to Nova Bombs (which didn't stick), and Andorf was changed to Andross (which ''did'' stick, and in fact was left in the Japanese releases of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' and ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault''). The latter is believed to have been because his name hit too close to [[UsefulNote/AdolfHitler Adolf]].

* ShoutOut: Monarch Dodora's name is a nod to the similarly multi-headed movie monster King Ghidorah. This has led some to assume that its English name was in fact a mistranslation and should have been "King Dodora," though the existence of a separate enemy with that name in ''VideoGame/StarFox2'' would seem to indicate otherwise.

Added DiffLines:

* KaizoTrap: When you destroy the Blade Barrier the station starts to break up, including the blades breaking away and hurtling straight towards you. If you end up getting destroyed by the blades, you have to do the battle all over again.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Slippy had a constant [[SpeechImpediment stutter]] in the English version, and periodically punctuated his lines with "ribbits" in the Japanese version -- both of these quirks vanished entirely from his rebooted persona.

* {{Badass}}: From what little characterization there is in comparison, this game was actually moderately ''more'' {{Badass}} in characterization than the {{Narm}}ier characters in ''VideoGame/StarFox64''.
