* HotterAndSexier: [[MsFanservice Krystal.]] She's a NubileSavage in a FurBikini who was introduced with [[{{Sexophone}} saxaphone music]]... it's very obvious she was made exactly for this reason. The results have been [[FurryFandom very effective]] to say the least - or, as some say, [[DistractedByTheSexy distracting from the gameplay]] and story shortcomings.

The Star Fox crew (this time consisting of Fox [=McCloud=], Peppy Hare, Slippy Toad, and ROB The {{Robot}}) intercepts a distress call from the mysterious Dinosaur Planet (later renamed Sauria) and set out to investigate. There, they discover a world inhabited by sentient [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs dinosaurs]] and other strange creatures, and learn that the planet is suffering under the tyrannical rule of the villainous General Scales. Under the prospect of a hefty pay [[CrackIsCheaper needed for the maintenance of their ship]] ([[ContinuityNod the effects of which are seen in ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'' with the newer, sleek designs]]) offered by General Pepper, Fox accepts the mission to explore the planet and save it from [[EarthShatteringKaboom destruction.]] This is the game that introduced [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mY5jWRHWUek Krystal]] to the series.

For those who are curious about the game's original incarnation as ''Dinosaur Planet'', a text file has been ripped from the game and can be found [[http://kcat.strangesoft.net/texts.txt here,]] and contains a decent amount of original content before becoming ''Star Fox Adventures''. Be warned as it contains spoilers both major and minor for the game. A decent amount of content from Dinosaur Planet itself can be found [[http://www.rareminion.com/dp.html here.]]

** A boss fight for [[spoiler:General Scales]] was also originally planned for the game. However, ownership of Rare shifted to Microsoft, forcing them to rush development and replace this battle with the cutscene we got in the final product.

* ExactWords: Scales threatens Garunda Te and Belina Te with genocide against the [=SnowHorns=] if they don't allow him to return the Spellstone to Darkice mines. He kept his word when he spared the race from extinction. However, he never said that he'd let them go free, either, and thus forced them to work at the mines.

** Tricky shares the name of a triceratops that appeared in another rare game, ''DiddyKongRacing''. Both species of dinosaurs are of the same suborder but Tricky is a Monoclonius, as he only has one horn.
** Rocky, Tricky's [[DummiedOut non-existent twin]] also looks and acts exactly like Tricky.

* MiniDungeon: As far as the order of exploration of places goes, the game inverts this trope as the main dungeons (the satellite regions of Dinosaur Planet, as well as the Force Point Temples) are always accessed and completed before the mini-dungeons (the Krazoa Shrines). The reason is because, during his quest, Fox alternates between looking for the Spellstones and looking for the Krazoa Spirits; so whenever he finds a Spellstone and puts it where it belongs, his next objective is to find a Krazoa Spirit and take it back to Krazoa Palace, so proceed then to the next Spellstone and repeating the process. This is the reason why the last thing pending before facing the Final Boss is to retrieve the remaining Krazoa Spirits.

* MoneyForNothing: Aside from a few plot-important items and a BrokenBridge or two, scarabs are pretty meaningless. About the only item for sale that's not easy to come by on its own are Fireflies, but you rarely need those and they're not technically necessary anyway.

* MiniDungeon: As far as the order of exploration of places goes, the game inverts this trope as the main dungeons (the satellital regions of Dinosaur Planet, as well as the Force Point Temples) are always accessed and completed before the mini-dungeons (the Krazoa Shrines). The reason is because, during his quest, Fox alternates between looking for the Spellstones and looking for the Krazoa Spirits; so whenever he finds a Spellstone and puts it where it belongs, his next objective is to find a Krazoa Spirit and take it back to Krazoa Palace, so proceed then to the next Spellstone and repeating the process. This is the reason why the last thing pending before facing the Final Boss is to retrieve the remaining Krazoa Spirits.
