Star Fox 64/3D

The Cornerian Air Force Medals of valour in Star Fox 64/3D are standard Gold Medals with blue ribbons and an Arwing in the coin's center. In each area, if a player shoots down enough enemies, they will be eligible to receive a medal. Also, all three wingmates (Peppy, Slippy, and Falco) must be alive at the end of the mission. After reaching the level's requirements, the point score check will flash from white into red, indicating a medal's collection. If all medals are collected, the player unlocks Expert Mode.

Strategy Guide

When one of your wingmen sends out a mayday, you'd better answer the call. You'll have to trust each other and watch each other's backs if you expect to succeed against Andross and his cruel hordes. If all of you are alive and well at the end of a mission, you may qualify for a medal from the Cornerian Air Force. In addition, saving one of your wingmen may be part of a secret mission or may help open up a new path for you to explore.

Strategy Guide Pullout

Though you're not a commissioned officer in the Cornerian military, you can be decorated for valour in combat. If you score a creation number of hits in a mission and all your wingmen survive, you'll be awarded a gold medal. The specific number of hit required is listed below each mission name on the navigational chart at left. You'll have your best chances for winning medals in Corneria, Aquas and Fichina, while Sector Z, Katina and Area 6 will pose the greatest challenge.

The ally medal in Assault.

The medals in Star Fox Assault are much like those in Star Fox 64, but there are four types: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Ally. Bronze, Silver, and Gold are earned by reaching the specific amount of points. The medals themselves are fox head shaped, like the Shield Gauge in Star Fox Adventures. To get these three medals the player must play the level on the selected Medal difficulty. For example, if a player wants to get a Silver medal they must play the level on the Silver difficulty.
