Added DiffLines:

* DifficultySpike: If you take the hardest route, then Aquas is where things really start to get difficult, with the enemies being more numerous, more aggressive and often having area-of-effect attacks instead of (or in addition to) beam attacks.

* DownerEnding: Some levels can end this way if you don't meet the objective. For example, Fortuna may end with the Star Fox team losing against [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Star Wolf]] and failing to diffuse the bomb, destroying the base, Katina may end with Saucerer wiping out the military base and the Cornerian army and Sector Z can end with the ''Great Fox'' getting damaged by a Copperhead missile. Failing Sector Z leads straight to the above-mentioned downer ending for the game itself, as successfully fending off the Copperhead missiles takes the player to Area 6 while failing leads to Bolse. It's even possible to get [[TraumaCongaLine all three of these endings]] in one playthrough if you take the warp route from Sector X to Z after failing Katina.

* FakeDifficulty: Expert mode turns your wings into [[MadeOfPlasticine brittle flaps of plastic]]. If you bump into ''any'' solid object, your wings are gone. Not only will the Arwing drift uncontrollably, but your laser is reverted to the weak single green laser.

Added DiffLines:

* TimeLimitBoss: While every boss is ''technically'' on a timer, that timer only influences how much bonus points you get for killing the boss. However, several bosses also have time limits that trigger a Mission Complete instead of a Mission Accomplished, or worse, a ''life loss'' if you let the timer run out:
** When Star Wolf appears on Fichina, you have to kill them before the bomb inside the base detonates.
** On Katina, when the mothership's core appears, you have one minute to destroy it before it vaporizes the base.
** If Spyborg's second phase isn't destroyed fast enough, Slippy will attempt to help only to get swatted off to Titania. The battle will continue, but you'll be one wingman short at the end of the stage (and if you were going for a medal, it's gone now).

** If Star Wolf is not defeated on Fichina [[TimeLimit within the time limit]], the camera shows the base being blown up by the bomb inside.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAWonderfulFailure: Failing the secondary objective in certain stages will show you the consequences of your actions, though downplayed in that these don't result in a GameOver:
** If Star Wolf is not defeated in Fichina [[TimeLimit within the time limit]], the camera shows the base being blown up by the bomb inside.
** If you don't destroy the Interplanetary Warship on Katina [[TimeLimitBoss before time runs out]], Bill orders you to evacuate the areas as the mothership looms over the base and vaporizes it ''completely'' with its WaveMotionGun.
** If Spyborg's second phase in Sector X drags on for too long, Slippy will attempt to help out, only to get smacked away, with the camera panning to show his ship hurtling towards Titania.
** If you allow any of the six missiles in Sector Z to reach the ''Great Fox'', you get to watch as it blows off one of the wings, with ROB informing you that with the ship damaged, you'll have to change course to Bolse.
