What would be Star Fox's next existential threat?

Star Fox Assault's Aparoids were an interesting addition to the franchise, since they were something new and unique. Even though the problem in Adventures was pretty large scale, the Aparoids weren't focused on destruction. Instead, it was spreading across the galaxy if not the universe. The Aparoid Queen's goal seemed to be spread as far as possible, and create something new.

Based on the details about the Aparoids, I think that their presence was influenced by a genre of horror known as "cosmic horror". Cosmic horror is usually defined as the fear of the unknown, and involves a greater and existential problem that simple beings like humans or Cornerians will never truly comprehend what's going on. Trying to solve the problem however, will drive the characters insane since they're dealing with something no mortal should try to deal with . For an example, it can involve a godlike alien being that is far more intelligent than us and/or defy certain parts of our known reality. The Aparoid Queen doesn't seem to defy reality in anyway, but she definitely possess supernatural intelligence as well as superior knowledge. But as shown at the end of the game, Fox and his team come out sane.

What gets me more interested in the Aparoids, is the fact there could be something similar to them but different in many ways. For an example, it could be a being that is both omniscient and omnipresent, an object that warps reality around it, or merciless godlike beings that have motives beyond what a mortal can comprehend. Anyways, I like thinking about all of the possibilities on how Nintendo could expand on the fact something like the Aparoids could exist somewhere around the cosmos of the Star Fox franchise.

I would like to see your ideas on what Star Fox's next existential threat would be like. Is it an object, being, or something beyond our confined reality. Please keep you ideas original.

      Imagine you're given the chance to get Zero's best aspects and put it into a multiplayer experience. What would locales and ships would you incorporate?
      For playable vehicles I'd include the Arwing and Wolfen, and at the very least try to make a map based on sector alpha(?). Walker mode multiplayer would be interesting if you designed the levels to have clever hiding spots then can also be flushed out and not to easily exploitable.

      It's coming, like it or not, ready or not, it's coming this December.
      Personally I like the Force Awakens. While it was not a perfect film, I felt it was a fun film. This I hope atleast matches or exceeds. I just want it to be enjoyable compared to Rouge One. ... The movie... Ew...
       
      So anyway, this thread has to happens. What do you dudes think? It can't be as bad as... You know...

      Some of you know I role play Pigma on tumblr (selfish-swine.tumblr.com), and those of you that don't... well now you do. This past week I wrote a six part short story kind of exploring my interpretation of Pigma's role in Star Fox Assault (more like me trying to make sense out of it honestly), and so far those I've shared it with have enjoyed it. So here you go, SF-O, for the rest of you to see. Feel free to reply and feedback.

      I'm really kinda upset how Mat Pat from game theory only covered two underwhelming ones about metal legs and the barrel roll being an aileron roll.  Yet I believe that most people here can come up with better ones to explore with minimal effort.  So, have you thought of any good theories about that fox to explore?

      As most people reading this probably already know, Nintendo announced their new console recently: the Nintendo Switch. If you haven't already, I recommend that you go and watch the announcement trailer.
      Watched it yet? Great. I will say that when we were getting rumours about the NX and all the various aspects of it, I was a bit sceptical, but now that I've seen it in action, I'm hopeful. If I can play the Skyrim Special edition on the go as shown in the trailer, it's an instant sell for me. Even more so if it supports mods(side note, how likely do you think that will be?).
      One think I am wondering though is how using one half of the controller will work in multiplayer will work, or if it even will for some games.
      So what are your thoughts? This could make for a good discussion, I think.
