* In any battle where you have multiple NPC allies, if you shoot down an enemy chasing them, they'll thank you and wish you good luck.
* [[spoiler:"Don't EVER give up, my son."]]
** And at the end of the whole sequence too.
-->[[spoiler: '''James''']]: [[spoiler: "[[SoProudOfYou You've become so strong, Fox.]]"]]
** Top it all off, when Fox gets back to the rest of the team, Falco actually gives a completely sincere compliment to Fox for making it through, saying "Yeah, that's our leader!"
** The Official Player's Guide includes an interview with Miyamoto where he mentions this is his favorite part of the game. The reason? [[spoiler: "I'm a father too."]]
* In ''Adventures'': Fox making Tricky an honorary Star Fox member.
** To expand on this, Fox has gone from getting angry at him for... telling him it's a good thing he fell in a hot spring?, not really wanting to take him along after making his mother well and only taking him because he's useful, and saying "[[SarcasmMode That's a shame]]" after the Warpstone tells him he cannot warp dinosaurs (meaning Tricky therefore can't join him for the Krazoa Palace segments) to saying "[[SincerityMode I'm gonna miss you, too]]" and promising to visit soon, on top of the aforementioned honor. They've really grown into friends over the course of this adventure.
* The ending of ''Assault''.
