Fichina's role in the games.
Star Fox 64/3D
Mission No 3. Fichina: Former Defense Post; Enter Star Wolf
Type: All-Range Mode
In Star Fox 64 and it's 3DS rerelease, Fichina is reached only from the Meteo Asteroid Field. The outcome of the mission will determinate the next route. If the Star Wolf team are all shot down before time runs out and the bomb is diffused, the choice of route will range from Solar to Sector X, but if Star Wolf win the dogfight, the choice of routes will be cancelled and the path will go straight to Sector X only. If the filght path to Venom includes Sector Z to Bolse, Star Wolf will reappear and Fox will groan at facing them a second time.
Boss: Star Wolf team's Wolfen
Depending on whether Peppy is present during the mission or undergoing repairs, Pigma's introduction line once Star Wolf arrives will vary. If Peppy is present, Pigma will greet him and say "Long time no see!" in a taunting manner. If Peppy is absent, Pigma will instead chuckle to himself and comment that he will be getting a whole lot of cash if they managed to defeat Star Fox.

Mission 4. Fichina; Into the Storm
Mission 4. Recapture The Climate Control Center
- “Pigma has fled to Fichina where he's takencontrol of and shut down the planet's climate control center. Find a way into the centre and get the climate-control device running again. Be warned: aparoids have been detected within the area around the climate control center. Proceed with caution.”
- —Mission objective
Vehicle: Pilot, Landmaster, Wing-riding, Arwing
Type: All-Range Mode
|Mission 4. Fichina||600||2000||3900|
Because of the weather on Fichina with the climate control centre being out of order, vision is impaired by the blizzards. Using the Landmaster, Fox will need to search for the three energy towers on the radar and take out the power supply to turn of the climate control center's shield. Fox will need to leave the Landmaster outside because it cannot fit, enter the centre and then the centre will disable the blizzards.
Because of an I.D fault, the Sentry Bots start to attack Fox on sight, using their wings to swipe. The bots are immune to all forms of attacks, except for the underside which is exposed when they open their wings, allowing Fox to fight back. After downing the certain number of bots, more will keep coming until the wing-riding cutscene is triggered by Falco's arrival.
While wing-riding with Falco, Fox must use the Plasma Cannon to take down Aparoids on the ground and in the air, protecting Falco's Arwing against powerful turrets that can lock on and cause serious damage. Once the entire field is circled, the next cutscene is triggered and allowing for Arwing flight.
- Slippy will be chased by Aparoids before passing under an icy bridge.
- Falco's Arwing will need protection when the Warning appears on screen and if he makes the call himself.
Boss: Aparoidedation Generator
Beacause of Pigma's influence, the climate control center's generator starts overloading and will self destruct in 5 minutes. Using the Arwing, Fox will need to fly near the generator and shoot down some of the enemies to make the generator open it's hatch and leave it open to attack, but when it does, it will charge up and release an energy beam. The battle will end of the bossometer is not emptied before time runs out.
Official Site Data
Fichina's Climate-Control System has been mysteriously damaged by its defense androids and returned the planet to its original arctic conditions.
Updated reports from Great Fox indicate McCloud and his team have infiltrated the planet. Assumption: Investigate the android attack.
Perched upon the wing of a strike fighter, your plasma cannon has unlimited ammo to blow through aparoid squadrons and surface-to-air artillery. But keep your eyes glued to your radar -- the Aparoids attack in large numbers from multiple vectors.
Name: Falco Lombardi
Team Star Fox: Ace Pilot
Skills: Strategy and tactics, pilot Falco's Arwing dog-fighting ability is second to none.
In Star Fox: Assault, Fichina appears as a stage in VS Mode, where when on foot, the players will slip and slide around and must stop followed by pulling in the direction opposite to come to an entire stop, owing to the ice preventing normal traction as in other maps. The blizzard is also gone in the multiplayer maps.
Star Fox CommandIn Star Fox Command, Fichina is under attack from the Anglar Empire. It has three different missions, varying from Fox and Slippy assisting Lucy in defending the planet against Oikonny, and the alliance between former rivals, Fox and Wolf.
Fog of War
After arriving on Fichina, they locate Lucy in one of the nearby cities. Fox mentions that Lucy was teaching astrophysics on Fichina, although she had always wanted to be a pilot. Slippy mentions that because Lucy was good friends with Krystal, she might know how to track her down, but Fox cuts him off.
After liberating Fichina from the Anglar forces, Star Wolf, who at this point are worried about the bounty that has been placed on them, emerge and attack Fox and Slippy but subsequently lose. Fox tells them he is too busy to deal with them now.
Back on board the Great Fox, Lucy shows up and informs Fox and Slippy that the Anglar attacks on Fichina are lead by Oikonny. Slippy points out the difficulty in fighting opponents without more information. Fox has to decide between attacking Oikonny (Oikonny Strikes Back, Fichina) or going to see Slippy's father, Beltino, at the Asteroid Belt (Missile Threat).
Oikonny Strikes Back!
Fox and Slippy receive a message from Oikonny, saying how he waited for his revenge and that he was hired personally by the Anglar Emperor. As Fox and Slippy prepare to attack, Lucy decides to join them, and Fox eventually allows her to help. After the reclamation of Fichina, Oikonny emerges, piloting the Anglar Death Crab. He is, however, defeated by Star Fox.
After Oikonny's defeat, Lucy decides to ask Fox about Krystal, somewhat catching him off guard. She tells him that she has been lonely and upset ever since they split up, and asks if he will try and find her. Fox says he had to make her leave because he couldn't handle seeing her in danger, but Lucy makes him say how he really feels. Lucy tells Fox that she has to go to Corneria to meet up with Peppy, and Slippy asks if Fox can stop by Aquas to see Slippy's fiancée, Amanda (much to Fox's surprise). However, the sunken Aquas city comes under attack, and they send a message to Falco to meet up with them on Aquas. The story will either follow Star Fox on Aquas (Beneath the Waves) or Lucy's return to Corneria (Father and Daughter).
Star Fox Zero
Mission 8. Fichina - Frozen Planet; Frostbitten Fray
Vehicle: Arwing, Walker, Landmaster
Type: All-Range Mode
Boss: Mother Strider
The planet is being invaded by Andross's army, and there are reports of a giant bioweapon. Star Fox takes the offensive, shooting down enemies one by one. Once 30 hits are made, or the time to do so runs out, Leon from Star Wolf appears. If the player can defeat Leon, a medal will be earned.
Suddenly, enemy striders will rise from the snow, prompting Fox to deploy the Landmaster, or Gravmaster as it can now fly. As the walkers are being destroyed, the mothership, Mother Strider, rises over of the horizon and into the battlefield. Fox must shoot three of the boss's legs to bring it down, exposing some of the weak points; once they are all gone, the core will appear. The mission will be over one the core is destroyed.
S - Mission 8. Hunter - Quadrupedal Assault Vehicle; Lone Wolf
In this sub-mission, it's Fox versus Wolf in this one on one battle. Wolf's Wolfen has all the same features as the Arwing, including a Walker form. Defeat Wolf to complete the stage, and if you beat him in a certain amount of time, you get a medal.
