* '''''ComicBook/StarFox''''', which was released as an adaptation of the 1993 video game of the same name. * '''''FarewellBelovedFalco''''' was bundled with ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' [[NoExportForYou only in Japan]], and fills in plot details after ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' and before ''Adventures''. As its title suggests, ''Farewell'' expands on Falco's story and background.

Three strikes: It's an index, use of "This editor", and meme reference.
* ForMassiveDamage: This editor can't think of a boss that doesn't use this and isn't in a ship barely larger than the player. ** ''Command'' has this giant enemy crab... and you shoot its face for... oh forget it.

Added DiffLines:
**The games play with ChromaticArrangement in their outfits mismatching their character color (which is usually based on their body color) for contrast. In their default uniforms Fox wears green, Slippy blue, and Falco orange or yellow. Peppy is the only one who's shirt color matches his character color consistently. In their Assault armor Fox kept green, Falco became red, Slippy yellow and Krystal blue.

* {{Homage}}: One of the ''Star Fox 64'' levels is inspired by the movie ''Film/IndependenceDay''. Another level features ''MobileSuitGundam''-like enemies. Both elements show up again, to a degree, in ''Command''. Some lines might well pay homage to StarWars (like the one directly below).

** The ''Nintendo Power Star Fox Comic'' featured a pet pig robot that belong to Andross named Herbert. His design was an obvious parody of the RX-78-2 of MobileSuitGundam.

** According to the [[http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/interviews/#/3ds/starfox/0/2 ''Star Fox 64 3D'' Iwata Asks]], Falco is actually a ''pheasant'' believe it or not. Which would make his head, at least, very accurate.

** Its still no Venom on the original game though. But then, that's less of a bullet hell and more of a [[MindOverMatter pillar hell]]. At least until you run into the [[TheDragon Great Commander]].

* ClipItsWings: Arwings can sometimes lose wings when damaged, particularly if you fly too close to something big and clip them yourself. Even without wings the ships can stay airborne and under the control of the pilot, (albeit with much greater difficulty), due to the G-Diffuser systems installed in them.

* ContinuityNod: The page picture, a piece of artwork from ''Command'', is essentially a redrawing of original promotion material for the original SNES ''Star Fox'' (which was actually the boxart for the Japanese and European releases). Given that the SNES game was [[{{Retcon}} retconned]] out of the continuity by ''64'', and the somewhat OffModel appearance of Slippy and Peppy, this is more of a nod than anything else. ** Also, Andrew Oikonny, ex-Star Wolf, is the first boss in ''Assault'', where he is striving to become a good BigBad like his uncle was. His ship even transforms into a big head with two flying fists as a callback to Andross's boss fight. Falco is not impressed.

* EveryoneCanSeeIt: In ''Adventures'' and ''Assault'', Fox tries to keep a lid on his blatant attraction to Krystal. It doesn't work very well. Falco, Slippy, R.O.B., and even Tricky (who hadn't seen them in over a year and had never seen them together in Adventures) manages to figure it out.
