- “Fire the Planet Cannon!”
- —Andross, Star Fox 2
The Planet Cannon (プラネットキャノン) is a gigantic battlecruiser used by Andross in the unreleased Super Nintendo game, Star Fox 2. It was designed specifically to destroy Corneria. Direct laser fire by starfighters cannot damage it. The only way to bring down this massive behemoth is to take out the core.
- The Planet Cannon shares characteristics with Superweapons from other Sci-fi series: the Death Star II from Star Wars because you can only destroy it by attacking the core, and the Planet Killer from the Warhammer 40,000 universe which was almost identical in purpose and function but could engage other ships with it's primary and secondary armaments and could be destroyed by attack craft or enemy warships.
- The cruiser also shares a similar hull design with the Venator-Class Star Destroyer from the Star Wars series.
- By sheer chance, the overall design is nearly identical to the (much) later concieved Harrower-Class Dreadnought from Star Wars: The Old Republic, including the ability to mount a massive energy weapon between the forward "prongs".
