* Agreed, [[BaseBreaker Krystal]] is very divisive, and [[DamselScrappy pretty unpopular]] at least in Japan. But she remains [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff wildly popular]] in the West, with most [[BrokenBase anti-Krystal fans]] being pre-''Adventures'' fans, female fans and the [[LGBTFanbase gay fandom.]] The topic of Krystal is a HolyWar, where her {{Fandom}} and {{Hatedom}} [[InternetBackdraft cannot compromise and cannot coexist peacefully]]. So it seems likely that no matter what the creators decide to do, [[UnpleasableFanbase someone will be very unhappy with it]].

To continue the 3rd timelime initiated by ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero'', a remake of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' will eventually be made. But this time, and partially because of the BaseBreaker status of ''Adventures'', Krystal, and sadly even ''Zero'', it will be considered a SpinOff with almost no mention of the Star Fox team. It will be closer to the original N64 ''Dinosaur Planet'' prototype, Krystal will actually be the main character this time, no more half-arsed Arwing sequence to justify the title, and only at the end would she meet Fox and the others. Consider it the beginning of the "Star Fox Videoludic Universe".

* Even the names of their starfighters are similar. Maybe the Arwing [[WritingAroundTrademarks is supposed to be "R-Wing?"]]

[[WMG:Fox is [[BiTheWay pansexual]] and [[{{Polyamory}} polyamorous]].]]
But not for AnythingThatMoves. He actually has a fairly passionate heart and [[UnresolvedSexualTension can fall in love rather easily]] if the chemistry is right. He probably has a separate [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend semi-casual]] [[FriendsWithBenefits non-exclusive]] [[YaoiGuys relationship]] each with Falco and Wolf, but probably [[ThePowerOfLove truly loves them]] too. There are variations of this theory with my friends -- some say just with Falco, some say just with Wolf, or some say Fox really does nail AnythingThatMoves.

[[WMG:Falco is StraightGay.]]
I mean, there are certainly many canonical details that suggest its plausibility, but [[{{Fanon}} my theory solidifies it]], so this has relatively more confidence than ordinary {{WMG}}. You see, he and Katt are more LikeBrotherAndSister, and they care about each other and love each other [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend in that capacity]] -- this is PlayedStraight. Falco is Katt's GayBestFriend, but for a long time Katt [[SingleTargetSexuality was strongly in love with Falco]], [[IncompatibleOrientation which he could never requite]]. Falco for his part just wants her to grow up and move on as a strong independent woman, and it appears she eventually does (and also begins to fall in love with [[SecondLove Cool]] instead). Falco is not interested in girls, nor is he interested in relationships in general. Now getting increasingly less canonical and more fanonical. Though he's not into relationships, Falco still forms them, but may [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend downplay their significance]]. (What makes this different from Katt? Falco has no UnresolvedSexualTension with Katt, but Fox and Falco appear at times to have BelligerentSexualTension, probably with plenty of SlapSlapKiss.) Since Fox and Falco are the FanPreferredCouple in Japan, I'm going to say that they actually are a couple -- not formally committed, and not merely FriendsWithBenefits, but more like Best Friends With Best Benefits, LikeAnOldMarriedCouple. Falco refuses to quantify these things, and Fox doesn't even try to make him (he probably [[NotSoDifferent isn't one]] [[{{Polyamory}} to talk]]), but their relationship simply takes the paths it takes. Falco could be there all the time, or away for a long time (even years, such as after ''Farewell''), and it's not like this [[StatusQuoIsGod upsets Fox's life too much]]. The love may be epic, but the romance is not.
* This should so be said in the games somewhere. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this.
** Really? On some forums I've been to, the notion that ''[[ValuesDissonance any]]'' of the characters could be gay is immediate FlameBait. Even [[ManlyGay Wolf]] and [[CampGay Leon]], even when you show them [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros proof]]. Strangely, there is little FlameBait when someone suggests that [[AmericansHateTingle Slippy]] is either gay or a woman or both, when Slippy is the one character furthest away from tripping my {{Gaydar}}. Or [[TheScrappy Andrew]]. Basically, [[UnfortunateImplications any character they don't like]]. Makes me wanna bang my head against a wall repeatedly. It appears the Japanese and [[{{Eagleland}} American]] fandoms have very, very little in common culturally.



Really. He's not a woman. He doesn't even have a high voice. And he's straight. He could even possibly be the only male member of Star Fox who ''is'' straight. And he's [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap actually fun to be around]], but his portrayals have usually been very unflattering. And he still wears that bead [[UtilityBelt Utility Necklace]], but [[AssPull artists have simply chosen not to draw it]].

* The bead necklace was only seen in the SNES continuity. In the later games and comics, there's no evidence the [[UtilityBelt Utility Necklace]] exists at all.

Answering how a fur covered character can have tattoos, I present to you [[http://www.netposse.com/prevrec/Brand_heart.jpg freeze brands.]] A type of branding that is supposed to be both more humane and less damaging than fire branding, freeze branding doesn't mark the skin, but it does hinder the skin's ability to grow fur or hair with any pigment. In other words, any new hair becomes white, just like Krystal's "tattoos."

* Considering the quick mention of Sauria in ''The Battle Begins'', it could canonically fit as a prequel depending of what happens in this game, namely if there are no Andross fight. It would also be a great opportunity to flesh-out General Scales and actually make him the BigBad of this game, without being [[HijackedByGanon Hijacked by Andross]].

His paternal grandmother and grandmother were an example of InterspeciesRomance, an alien fox space pilot from the Lylat system fell in love with a human F-Zero racer from the Solar system, but a HalfHumanHybrid offspring was averted since alien fox DNA is dominant over human DNA. Their beloved child was James McCloud Jr., Fox's father.

[[WMG: Sharpclaw Cannons and Magic Energy.]]
Sharpclaw Cannons can be used indefinitely by Sharpclaw because, well, they're Sharpclaw. Fox, on the other hand, isn't a Sharpclaw. He can't use Sharpclaw Cannons without something to bridge the gap between him and the Cannon. And that's where Magic Energy comes in every time Fox wants to fire, another chunk of Magic Energy is taken from him. He may even have to avail himself of nearby Magic Gems if he runs low enough on it. But Sharpclaw will never need to do so. Because they're Sharpclaw.
