* LampshadeHanging: ''Assault'' is replete with examples of missions in which you have to destroy hatchers in addition to regular enemies. By Stage 9, the assault on the aparoid homeworld, Fox has become a bit {{genre savvy}} about the whole thing.

One year after the [[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures incident on Sauria]] the Star Fox team is hired to help take down [[TheRemnant the remnants]] of Andross' forces. However in the midst of this battle a new enemy emerges to threaten the Lylat System. The aparoids, a race of [[BigCreepyCrawlies insect like creatures]] begin an invasion of the system with the goal of assimilating all life into their [[HiveMind collective hive]]. With the Cornerian military outnumbered and outgunned, it's up to Star Fox to track down information leading to the aparoid homeworld and defeat this menace once and for all.

* FromBadToWorse: The whole story. First, the aparoids appear years after one destroyed an entire Cornerian fleet. Then, the Star Fox team finds a Core Memory leading to their homeworld, only for Pigma to steal it. Then they find that aparoids can infect machines. Then they find that they can infect ''organics'', and [[spoiler:Pigma]] is assimilated and destroyed. Star Fox gets that all-important Core Memory, but then they have to rush off and save Sauria, which is being overrun by aparoids. They save Sauria, only to find that [[spoiler:they ''annihilated'' Corneria and began assimilating General Pepper while they were busy on Sauria]]. They finally make it to the Homeworld, only for the aparoids to [[spoiler:assimilate ''the Great Fox'', and for Peppy to perform a HeroicSacrifice to allow them into the homeworld interior]]. Star Wolf shows up to aid them, but then they [[spoiler:perform another HeroicSacrifice to cover Star Fox as they enter the deepest part of the core]]. Star Fox fights through the [[ShapeshifterGuiltTrip psychological warfare]] of the aparoid queen, and hit it with the self-destruct program, only for it to [[spoiler:''not work'']]. Whew. Things are righted after the ''final'' final boss battle, but seriously; how bleak can things ''get?''
** Not to mention the aparoids appear once Andross and presumably all his minions except Oikonny are dead, and Star Fox is fighting Oikonny. Basically, the threat of Andross is about to be put to an end for all time (unless ''Command'' is believed to be canon) when suddenly an aparoid presumably kills him and attacks Krystal, and then the aparoids become the main threat to the Lylat System, but a much bigger threat than even Andross was.

Added DiffLines:

* HitboxDissonance: Especially because of his tail, Fox's hitbox sometimes appears to be larger than it is graphically, which makes him pretty easy to hit from the side. This also counts for Krystal, Falco and Wolf.

''VideoGame/StarFox Assault'' was the direct sequel to ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', and returned more to the genre and gameplay of the preceding ''VideoGame/StarFox'' games ''[[VideoGame/StarFox1 Star Fox]]'' and ''VideoGame/StarFox64''. It was published on UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube in 2005. Continuing the trend of all ''Star Fox'' games (except ''64''), the game was not developed by Creator/{{Nintendo}} itself -- this time, ''Assault'' was developed by {{Namco}}.
