* 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.

* 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''.

* TheWarSequence: The Space Armada stage. You fly through Andross' main invasion force, wiping out fighters, shooting down capital ships by bombarding their bridges from the outside or flying inside them to destroy their energy cores, shooting down troop shuttles, and eventually flying inside the gigantic flagship and take out the Atomic Core.

* DownerEnding: When you complete the game with just Fox [=McCloud=] left in the squadron.

* 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.]]

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]].

* UnresolvedSexualTension: Fox and Krystal throughout the majority of their scenes together. Hell, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euD2P99uIuk end of the first game]] even has sexy saxophone music playing in the background.

* 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.]]
