''Farewell, Beloved Falco'' is a {{Canon}}ical {{Manga}} in the ''VideoGame/StarFox'' series, exclusive to the [[NoExportForYou Japanese]] ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' website ([[https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ngc/gsaj/history/page/index.html seen here]]). 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 as a gang member.
!!''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 Katt had pined for]], though whether or not Falco is either {{Asexual}} or simply not interested in getting a girl at this time is not addressed.
** It should be noted that one ending in ''VideoGame/StarFoxCommand'' has a new Star Fox team made up of descendants of the original members, except for Falco.
* CloningBlues: [[spoiler:Shears intends to "reconstruct" Andross.]]
* {{Expy}}:
** Captain Shears resembles General Pepper's design in the cancelled ''VideoGame/StarFox2'' (or, less likely, might be intended as that same character).
** 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 ''Star Fox Adventures''. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Falco leaves the team]][[spoiler:, and the door is open for [[NotQuiteDead Andross' return]]]].
* 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: A multiplayer version of the original ''[[VideoGame/StarFox1 Star Fox]]'' appears (possibly a reference to the canned ''VideoGame/StarFox2''), and on the screens of the enemy base, [[spoiler:Andross appears as his SNES form]].
* TheMole: Captain Shears is a [[RedShirtArmy Corneria 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 the blue cat's ("[[FanNickname Cool]]") 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 disinterest in romance]].
* ShoutOut:
** Shears, as befitting of the old "[[{{ShoutOut}} Sergeant Pepper]]" joke from the original comic.
** Katt and Cool's two teammates are [[SuperMarioBrothers Mousor and Bowsor]], references to the iconic Mario villain Bowser... and an expy of the ''VideoGame/DokiDokiPanic'' / ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' 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) seems to be the original ''[[VideoGame/StarFox1 Star Fox]]'' game. This gag was reused in the animated short, ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero: The Battle Begins''.
* SunglassesAtNight: Captain Shears, Mousor and Bowsor.
