* CrackPairing: Several. Fox/Wolf (they want to kill each other) Fox/Falco (not only is nothing romantic implied, but Falco is ''asexual.'') One of the strangest that has occurred is Wolf/Lucy. Shippers point to the appearance of Lucy's daughter in the ending "Goodbye Fox", claiming that she shares some of Wolf's traits.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Everyone on Star Wolf except Pigma and Andrew. Leon's (apparently) a cold-blooded killer, albeit one who loves flowers and rainbows, and Wolf is... [[SavageWolf Wolf.]] Panther also gets this a lot, as his great reverence for love thus redeems him.

* SoOkayItsAverage: ''Assault'' is widely regarded as this by fans and some reviewers. Interestingly, it's the worst-reviewed game in the series, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a fan that prefers ''Command'' over it.

* ContestedSequel: '''EVERY SINGLE GAME IN THE SERIES.''' Even ''64'' isn't safe, as the original SNES game has a sizeable fanbase. As mentioned above, don't try to start a discussion, especially if you get the unreleased ''Star Fox 2'' involved.
* CrackPairing: One such pairing that has occurred is Wolf/Lucy. Shippers point to the appearance of Lucy's daughter in the ending "Goodbye Fox", claiming that she shares some of Wolf's traits.
* CriticalResearchFailure: The description of Solar, which is a ''star'', as "The Red-Hot Planet" in ''Command''. Never mind that it's supposed to be the sun of the Lylat system, but given data on it places it as a Red Dwarf too cold to possibly sustain life, thus the fan theory that the Lylat System might be some kind of Binary Star system.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The Star Wolf theme gets an awesome [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ti-ANm0kaV0 instrumental remake]] in ''Assault''.
* DracoInLeatherPants: The two mainstays of Star Wolf: Leon's (apparently) a cold-blooded killer, albeit one who loves flowers and rainbows, and Wolf is... Wolf. Panther also gets this a lot, as his great reverence for love thus redeems him.
* EnsembleDarkHorse: Star Wolf, especially leader Wolf and Leon for their banter and Wolf and Leon's Badass nature and crazy personality respectively.
** Panther is fairly popular because of his personality and being a cat he's used a lot as a subject in Nico Video as someone who is dancing, doing silly things, etc.
** Lucy became the EnsembleDarkHorse of ''Command'', despite getting the least character development of any of that game's new characters.

** It doesn't help that, until ''Assault'' and ''Adventures'', the cast was almost ''entirely'' male (with one un-determinable gender).

* ShipToShipCombat: ''Star Fox'''s combat revolves ''all'' around Fox: Fox/Krystal vs. Fox/Fara (please remember reciting your MST3KMantra, fans of either side -- both are {{Official Couple}}s) vs. [[VitriolicBestBuds Fox/Falco]] vs. Fox/[[TheRival Wolf]], and (for no apparent reason) Fox/Miyu. Fox/Falco also gets pitted against [[ShipTease Falco/Katt]] every now and then, and the first of the aforementioned {{Official Couple}}s occasionally goes against [[RomanticFalseLead Panther]]/Krystal, which is often the target of DieForOurShip anyway.

* HoYay: The more common variations include:
** Fox × Falco is the FanPreferredCouple in Japan and the principal YaoiFangirl favorite. They are also moderately popular in the West, but also tends to be almost diametrically opposed by [[BrokenBase Krystal fans]]. The couple's FanNickname is usually ''Falox'' in the West, and ファルフォ (''Falfo'') in Japan.
** Fox × Wolf is the favorite in BaraGenre contexts, with Wolf usually being the more dominant one (in his MemeticMolester role). The FanNickname is usually ''Wolox'' in the West, and ウルフォ (''Wolfo'') in Japan.
** [[OneTrueThreesome Wolf × Leon × Panther]] or any combination thereof are pretty popular.
** James × Peppy as a backstory FanPreferredCouple, especially after Vixy dies. In Japan, the FanNickname for this is usually ジムペプ (''Jimpep'') or ジムペピ (''Jimpeppy'').
** And for some odd reason James × Wolf too... which is strange especially if you consider their ages. [[{{Wimpification}} Wolf is an Uke?]]
** Canon and straight ships like Fox and Krystal can be found among Japanese fans, but are relatively less common than Falox or Wolox.
** Slippy does ''not'' get a lot of HoYay -- in Japan, he's almost universally treated as straight and male.



* LGBTFanbase: The ''Star Fox'' franchise has a significant gay fanbase. The reasons are varied, but HoYay is a big reason that both Fan Yay and {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s frequently share.

* {{Fanon}}: Thanks to ''Did You Know Gaming?'', a fairly large portion of Nintendo fans now believe that the Star Fox team in the original games are amputees with prosthetic metal legs, due to the metallic appearance of their footwear. This rumour is based on the box art for the very first game, which used puppets with weighted feet and hinges in the legs to get them to stand (the look of which a Nintendo Power cover replicated down to every exact detail). The reasoning used is that doing so would stop the blood flow that would cause the pilots to pass out due to intense g-forces. Never mind that [[CriticalResearchFailure such an idea wouldn't work at all with real life pilots]], but that the games canonically have technology that would actively prevent such a thing in the form of the G-Diffuser, which has been present since the start of the series. Whilst the canonical evidence ''for'' the theory is virtually nil, and the evidence against it substantial, it wasn't until the release of ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero'' where [=MatPat=] of [=GameTheory=] (a populariser of the theory) had an interview with ''Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto'' and brought up the issue; whereupon Miyamoto promptly stated the metallic appearance was a stylistic choice, effectively debunking the theory.

* ViewerGenderConfusion:
** Due to being voiced by a woman in ''64'', there were quite a few people who thought that Slippy was female. Slippy is voiced by the same actress who voiced Katt. While it is obvious, she does do a distinct difference between them and her Slippy voice is pretty convincing. {{Lampshaded}} in ''Command'' when Falco is surprised to hear that Slippy is engaged to a ''woman''.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A borderline case. There are rumors floating around of a scrapped unlockable storyline path leading to a GoldenEnding. If true, this was ''entirely'' shelved, as there is no evidence for it in the code (that is, DummiedOut has been Averted for once). According to the rumor on GameFAQs, the true ending would have elements of most of the endings, with Fox promising to get Star Wolf's bounty cleared, Krystal leaving both Star Fox and Star Wolf for an indefinite period of time to sort out her thoughts (with the implication that she would return to Fox), and the Star Fox team remaining together. Slippy also brought up heading to Aquas to be married to Amanda, and Dash shows up to mention that he will act as the warden for the terraformed Venom (with the implication that he will eventually turn out like Andross, as in the "Dash Makes A Choice" ending). In other words, the GoldenEnding would resolve the Anglar threat while remaining wishy-washy about the character development over the game's course. Why this ending was scrapped is unknown, assuming that it ever existed.

* EvenBetterSequel: ''Star Fox 64'' made several improvements over the original [[TrueArtIsAncient stylish]] SNES Star Fox, and it's still the most popular and remembered game in the series as a result of this.
