* TookALevelInBadass: While technically {{Badass}} already, Star Wolf as a whole has become better in ''Assault'', and has been like that since. It was also the first game where Wolf gained personality (not counting the ''Lylat Wars Comic'' adaptation).

''Star Fox'' is a long-running Creator/{{Nintendo}} [[ShootEmUp space shooter]] franchise starring the Star Fox mercenary team and their leader, Fox [=McCloud=]. Set in the Lylat system, they battle MadScientist Andross, their rival counterpart Star Wolf, and other threats.

* '''''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures''''' is the [[OddballInTheSeries black sheep of the series]] as it originally wasn't a ''Star Fox'' game at all. Instead, its origins lie in an unrelated [[UsefulNotes/Nintendo64 N64]] adventure game known as ''[[DolledUpInstallment Dinosaur Planet]]'', which shifted development to the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] and inserted Fox [=McCloud=] at the eleventh hour by Nintendo's request. The game introduced Fox's on-again-off-again love interest, Krystal. It was also the last Creator/Rare game developed for a Nintendo console before they were immediately bought out by Microsoft.

* ArtShift: Does Fox [=McCloud=] have blue or green eyes? That depends on what game you're looking at. They appear to have settled on green, but interestingly, in an early promo art for ''Assault'', they appeared to be ''[[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/starfox/images/0/0c/Foxblaster.jpg both]]''.

** James [=McCloud=] may or may not be dead, since they NeverFoundTheBody. [[spoiler:According to the SNES comic and ''Star Fox Zero'', he is revealed to still be alive, but trapped in an AnotherDimension.]]

* LegacyCharacter: Fox [=McCloud=] is the son of James [=McCloud=]. Both are considered the best pilots of their universe and generation and both leaders of their teams. There's also Marcus, the son of Fox and Krystal and leader of a new Star Fox team, as a possible future opened up by ''Command''.

* ShoutOut: The ''Star Fox'' series seems to have a number of reciprocal Shout Outs in relation to ''VideoGame/{{F-Zero}}''. For starters, Fox [=McCloud=] and Falco Lombardi may have ''originally'' been Shout Outs, being an anthropomorphic ''Golden Fox'' and ''Blue Falcon'' respectively. Then, James [=McCloud=] (outfit and all, but in non-anthropomorphic human form) became a character in the ''F-Zero'' series starting with ''F-Zero X''. Then ''Star Fox Command'' references ''F-Zero'' yet again, [[spoiler:where one of its nine possible MultipleEndings has Fox and Falco becoming racers in a high-speed racing league called G-ZERO Grand Prix]].

** And then there are some real names with no relation to the characters species like James McCloud the Fox. In addition, some characters have animal themed surnames like Hare and Toad, while others have distinctly European surnames, McCloud, Lombardi, Caruso, O'Donnel etc.

* BritishAccents: Krystal and pretty much the entire population of Dinosaur Planet (aka Sauria) besides Tricky. This can be attributed to ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' being created in the United Kingdom.
** Wolf's English dubbing in ''64'' has an aristocratic English accent, but since ''Assault'', he speaks in a gruffer, sometimes southern accent.
