Canon means an occurence that actually happened in the story line. Such as James McCloud dying is considered canon, the events of SF64 are considered canon.

Similarly, the events of the Star Fox Nintendo Power comic are no longer consider canon.

Canon means "official at this point in time".

Webster Says:





Middle English, from Old English, from Late Latin, from Latin, ruler, rule, model, standard, from Greek kanōn


before 12th century

1: a: a regulation or dogma decreed by a church council b: a provision of canon law

2: [Middle English, from Anglo-French, from Late Latin, from Latin, model] : the most solemn and unvarying part of the Mass including the consecration of the bread and wine

3: [Middle English, from Late Latin, from Latin, standard] a: an authoritative list of books accepted as Holy Scripture b: the authentic works of a writer c: a sanctioned or accepted group or body of related works <the canon of great literature>

4: a: an accepted principle or rule b: a criterion or standard of judgment c: a body of principles, rules, standards, or norms

5: [Late Greek kanōn, from Greek, model] : a contrapuntal musical composition in which each successively entering voice presents the initial theme usually transformed in a strictly consistent way

In our context, it is a form of definition 3b. The canon is the authoritative storyline of the series, sanctioned by Nintendo.
