Added DiffLines:

* SuicideAttack: ''Averted''. If your Arwing is about to explode, you might try to spite the boss that killed you [[TakingYouWithMe by crashing your ship into it]]. Notice its taking longer than usual for you to denote? That's because the boss is actively trying to reach a minimum safe distance from you. [[NoSell And then you blow up]].

* SpaceWhale: If you shoot all the small orange stingrays in Sector Y, a space whale shows up and drops a slew of powerups just before you encounter the boss. In the tie-in [[ComicStrip/StarFox Nintendo Power comic]], this is said to actually be [[http://oldgamemags.tumblr.com/post/135740771372/nintendo-power-51-august-1993-star-fox-comic the visual manifestation of a trans-dimensional spaceship]] that saved Fox's father, leaving him [[YouCantGoHomeAgain permanently shifted to that dimension]].

* TheUnfought: According to the ''[[AllThereInTheManual Star Fox Mission File Printout]]'', Venom's "Andross..." composed by his [[HeartDrive Core Brain]] is actually a [[MyselfMyAvatar remote-controlled computer designed to allow Andross to oversee Venom's army without actually being there himself]]. This is also implied by the [[ComicStrip/StarFox tie-in comic]] (where it is known as the "Telekinetic Amplifier"), as well as his trophy description in ''Super Smash Bros. Melee'' (though somewhat rebuked in later installments). This is also potentially referenced in one of the [[ActuallyADoombot final bosses]] of ''VideoGame/StarFox64''. ''VideoGame/StarFox2'', however, did not try to depicted it [[TheKidWithTheRemoteControl anything other than the actual Andross]]. [[spoiler:''VideoGame/StarFoxZero'' also depicted Andross as a mutated cyborg utilizing hologram illusions.]]

''Star Fox'' (released as ''Starwing'' in Europe), jointly developed by Creator/{{Nintendo}} and Creator/ArgonautSoftware, was the very first entry of the ''VideoGame/StarFox'' series. It was released in 1993 for the UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem alongside an accompanying [[ComicStrip/StarFox comic series]] on ''NintendoPower'' magazine; the comic actually began publication before the game itself was released, providing the first introduction to the game's story, setting and characters.

** A more minor example occurs with the Attack Carrier. You fight it at the end of Corneria if you take the Level 1 or Level 2 routes, but if you take the Level 3 route Andross's attack fleet get the opportunity to deploy their Destructor attack tank along with the Attack Carrier. Falco ends up fighting the Attack Carrier himself off-screen, leaving you to deal with the Destructor.
* UngratefulBastard: Falco, if you defeat the "bogey on his six," just tells you to mind your own business.

* CognizantLimbs: Most bosses have multiple parts, but Monarch Dodora is not a machine or ship, but a cyborg dinosaur with two heads, a tail, and a body. You must stun either the two heads or the tail to make the body vulnerable.

* EasterEgg: The game had the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XzfcIOquWk Out of this Dimension]] hidden level, a freaky, psychedelic location with creepy smiling moons where the background is constantly distorting and the enemies consist of paper planes and slot machines. Oh, and there's no escape from this level, meaning Fox is stuck flying in this place forever until you reset the game.

* AutobotsRockOut: Thanks to music by Hajime Hirasawa, who left Nintendo after working on this game. The 1993 game and unreleased 1995 game had a much greater share of rock-themed soundtrack than ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' or its sequels. Some of Hirasawa's compositions were rearranged for ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'', both by him and by fellow composers like Creator/KenjiIto.
