When I look at the appearance section on Fox McCloud it says that his appearance in this game is non-cannon. Why is that? --Revan's Exile 02:51, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
- Sorry for the very late response, but that's because officially, Star Fox is not canon, 64 is the beginning of the canon timeline. This help you out? Baker78 05:11, March 16, 2010 (UTC)
- I knew that much, I was curious as to why. --Revan's Exile 12:10, March 16, 2010 (UTC)
- Star Fox 64 is essentially Star Fox remade. It uses pretty much the same story, so the events in the original are considered never to have happened, including appearances made by characters. 188.8.131.52 05:15, March 17, 2010 (UTC)
Title Screen Image
The image labeled Title Screen is not the actual title screen but a piece of promotional art. Can someone please change the image? Baker78 05:30, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
To poster of the image:
Thank you, but you need to convert the file from a .png file to a .jpg file so we can get a description. Yes, I LOVE descriptions. Baker78 06:09, April 1, 2010 (UTC)
Puppets used in promotions
Is there any information on these models?
I always thought they would have been used for a TV series.OX Bigly 11:16, October 13, 2011 (UTC)
replying to an old post, yeah, im a noob, but just to clarify, the whole "reboot" for the franchise has been EXTREMELY sketchy, so we cannot officialy state its non canonity or if its canon.

- Yeah, I agree somewhat... If you just take the original game and manual, the only real difference between the SNES and N64 storylines besides some more non-contradictory backstory is the implication that Pepper loaned them new Arwings, the absence of ROB and the Great Fox, and that James has a known location where he was last seen alive. Couple this with the fact that the Japanese Star Fox Adventures site considered the events of the SNES and N64 games two sides of the same coin, and the intro of Star Fox 64 clearly states that the Star Fox team must "free the Lylat system once again", one could easily see Star Fox 64 as a direct continuation of Star Fox - as the Andross in the SNES is said to be a fake and the Star Fox team was flying back to Corneria when they heard the distress call by General Pepper.
- So despite the fact that the difference between Star Fox and Star Fox 64 is way too minimal to really be denounced as parallel universes, why do so many fans do it? Two reasons - lumping the Nintendo Power comic together and exactly one small line by Shigeru Miyamoto in the Star Fox 64 Player's Guide. The Nintendo Power comic was their own take on the original SNES game, and what most fans don't seem to realize is that it was intended to have liberties with the source material in the first place - in fact, another contradictory adaptation of Super Metroid was also made, and certain aspects of both Fox's and Samus's backgrounds were still made official in later games as tribute to Benimaru Itoh (in this case Samus as an orphan and Fox on a planet called Papetoon). The Shigeru Miyamoto quote is the other part of the argument - supposedly the interviewer asked him why he decided to "remake" Star Fox, and he gave a straight answer. I say supposedly because there's always room for misinterpretation, and I haven't seen a trace of the Japanese version of this interview in existence, which suggests that this factoid is very obscure in Japan yet it made all the difference in some western players.
- So yes, bottom line is that it's vague and there's no clear answer - all that's certain is that the "true ending" of Star Fox 64 is considered the actual end of the Lylat Wars, and overall Nintendo seems to treat the original Star Fox as "it counts if you want it to", which probably has more to do with them wanting to be independent from Argonaut's work than anything else.
