''Farewell, Beloved Falco'' is a {{Canon}}ical {{Manga}} in the ''VideoGame/StarFox'' series, released [[NoExportForYou only in Japan]] as a bundle with ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures''. It fills in the gaps in the story after ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' and before ''Adventures''. As its name implies, ''Farewell'''s story focuses on Falco's CharacterDevelopment, shows why he isn't present with the team at the beginning of ''Adventures'' and explains the nature of his relationship with Katt Monroe and his past in the Hot Rodders.
----
!!''Farewell, Beloved Falco'' provides examples of:
* AllThereInTheManual: Or rather, this is the manual for some plot points in ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures''.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Katt loved Falco even since they were teenagers.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Captain Shears, a military officer on Titania, tells Fox that he needs help combating remnants of Andross's army who are planning a counterattack. [[spoiler:In fact, Shears is trying to re-build Andross and is trying to fool Fox into attacking Falco and his group.]]
* CelibateHero: Falco was revealed not to be the love interest [[AllLoveIsUnrequited she had pined for]], though whether Falco is StraightGay or {{Asexual}} (or even simply not interested in getting a girl at this time) is not addressed.
** It should be noted that one ending in ''Command'' has a new Star Fox team made up of descendants of the original members, except for Falco.
* CloningBlues: This is how [[spoiler:Shears intends to revive Andross.]]
* {{Expy}}:
** Captain Shears more resembles General Pepper's appearance pre-ContinuityReboot.
** Mousor is...[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 Mouser]].
* EyeScream: "How about Fox throws a rapier into Andross' eye?" was a thought from a qualified Nintendo writer at one point.
* ForegoneConclusion: The story is an interquel, made to bridge the events between Star Fox 64 and ''Dinosaur Planet.'' All the characters survive, and Falco leaves the team.
* IWorkAlone: Falco states this as the reason why he'll never want a girlfriend.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: The real dynamic between Falco and Katt in private.
* MythologyGag: Fox and Slippy are seen playing the original SNES version of Star Fox at the end, and on the screens of the enemy base, [[spoiler:Andross appears as his SNES form]].
* TheMole: Captain Shears is a [[RedShirtArmy Cornerian Defense Force]] officer whose real loyalty is to [[BigBad Andross]].
* PeopleJars: Andross (or at least his brain) is being revived inside one.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Katt and Cool's appearance together.
* PutOnABus: The events in this story motivated Falco to leave the Star Fox team.
* ShipSinking: Falco and Katt are more LikeBrotherAndSister, where SheIsNotMyGirlfriend is done seriously. Katt is [[AllLoveIsUnrequited in unrequited love]] with Falco. Falco has a fraternal love for Katt, but one of the biggest deal breakers is his [[CelibateHero complete disinterest in girls]].
* ShoutOut:
** [[SergeantPepperShoutOut Shears, as befitting of the old joke from the original comic.]]
** Aside from Cool, Katt's two teammates are [[SuperMarioBrothers Mousor and Bowsor]], references to the iconic Mario villian Bowser... and an expy of the Super Mario Brothers 2 boss Mouser.
** The game that Falco and Fox are playing at the beginning of the story (and Slippy and Fox are playing at the end) is the original Star Fox game.
* SunglassesAtNight: Captain Shears, Mousor and Bowsor.
