FOX: Krystal, you're too late.
KRYSTAL: What happened?
FOX: You abandoned me. That's what.
KRYSTAL: Sniff... Fox... I'm sorry... I’m so sorry… sob… sob…
FOX: It's too late for that. Now, I rule this system.
FOX: You betrayed Star Fox and left me stranded.
FOX: I was forced to work on planet Kew and you never came back for me.
FOX: All that's left in my heart is misery and despair...
FOX: And now, you must pay!
KRYSTAL: Fox, joining Star Wolf was a mistake. I shouldn’t have been so… bitter…
FOX: I saved you, but you fell in love with Panther Caroso.
KRYSTAL: That's not true, Fox! I love you!
KRYSTAL: Please Fox, this isn't you! Star Fox defeated the Anglars, not Star Wolf!
KRYSTAL: No, really! It was Xehanort who did this. He changed the ending!
KRYSTAL: Please, Fox! I’m sorry!!!
FOX: STOP LYING!!!
KRYSTAL: I’m not! I was supposed to rejoin Star Fox, not betray you.
KRYSTAL: Please Fox, you have to remember! I need you back!
FOX: I... can't...... I’m… too… weak……. Help…. Me…….
FOX: FOOL! I will never forgive you. I am the new Andross! Now, I will destroy you!!!
KRYSTAL: Fox… Sniff... Please... forgive me...
Post battle dialog
FOX: Ugh… what happened?
FOX: Oh, no… what have I done?... What have I become?
KRYSTAL: FOX! You’re okay!
FOX: Who are you!?!
KRYSTAL: Fox, it’s me, Krystal.
FOX: I don’t… know you…
KRYSTAL: Fox, please! You got to remember who I am! You saved me from being trapped inside a giant crystal.
FOX: I... don’t... remember anything... like that...
KRYSTAL: Fox, please! I’m really sorry that I joined Star Wolf.
KRYSTAL: I should never have had that relationship with Panther.
KRYSTAL: I love you, Fox. Please, remember.
FOX: I... I... I.......
* Fox’s memories of Krystal returning *
FOX: Krystal...? Is that you? What happened?
* Fox sees what he did to Lylat as Dark Fox *
FOX: Oh, no... I killed everyone… how did this happen!?!
KRYSTAL: Fox, that wasn’t you. It was Xehanort.
KRYSTAL: He poisoned your mind and your heart with darkness.
KRYSTAL: Forget what he told you, Fox. Xehanort made you into a new Andross. It wasn’t your fault. It was mine.
FOX: Did we… really… use that… device to…. make Venom more… beautiful?
FOX: Then, how did that… creep in black… make it so we… didn’t?
KRYSTAL: I… don’t know. He came out of nowhere and… altered the future.
FOX: Krystal… I’m sorry for not believing you. It’s just…
KRYSTAL: No, Fox. I’m sorry. For breaking our bond. For being stupid and joining Star Wolf.
FOX: What?! You’re… apologizing?
KRYSTAL: Yes, Fox. Because, I love you.
FOX: Sniff… Thank you... I love you, too.
FOX: Krystal… If we survive all this... I want to... just... take things... easy…
KRYSTAL: What about Star Fox?
FOX: I can't... do that anymore... especially after... all this...
KRYSTAL: If you want to take things easy, let's fight Xehanort together!
FOX: Wait, did you dye your hair purple?
KRYSTAL: Oh… yeah. I dyed it when I called myself Kursed. I better wash it off.
FOX: Don’t. It looks good on you.
KRYSTAL: Really? You like it?
* Fox slides his mother’s ring with a sapphire gem onto Krystal’s finger *
FOX: You like the ring?
KRYSTAL: I love it!
FOX: Good, I had the gem put in right after the Aparoid invasion...
FOX: I knew back then you were going to be my wife someday.
KRYSTAL: You had it this whole time?
FOX: Yeah, waited for the perfect time... to give it to you.
KRYSTAL: It was worth the wait, wasn't it?
FOX: Yeah, it was... you're going to make a beautiful bride.
KRYSTAL: I can't wait to see you in a tux.
FOX: I can't... wait till you become my... wife...
KRYSTAL: I am already yours, Fox... and you ain't going to lose me... not now... not ever!
FOX: Okay. C'mon, Krystal! Let's make one last run. Our final mission… together.
KRYSTAL: Then, we can retire and settle?
FOX: Yeah. You’ve always been a part of my heart and just yours was.
KRYSTAL: Those Star Wolf goons aren’t my friends… Star Fox is.
FOX: I guess we both made a mistake.
KRYSTAL: Don’t worry, Fox. We’ll always be together. I promise.
FOX: Really? Thank you.
*Fox and Krystal kiss as ROB gives Fox a Star Fox Keyblade*
ROB: Fox, I have something for you.
FOX: What’s this?
KRYSTAL: A Keyblade. I asked ROB to forge it for you. Hopefully, it will give us the power to defeat Xehanort and it will be all over.
FOX: For me? Thanks, ROB.
FOX: Now, let’s go beat Xehanort for good! Then we can retire.
SLIPPY: Yay! This is AWESOME!
SLIPPY: The Anglars are history, and Krystal is back with the team!
SLIPPY: Now we just have to file our report with Peppy! We should go find him!
FALCO: Don't pretend, frog. You just want to go see your new squeeze!
SLIPPY: Tee hee hee! You've discovered my ruse!
FOX: Ruse or no, we're plotting a course for Aquas.
ROB: Great Fox prepped and ready for launch.
FOX: Let's go!
YOUNG XEHANORT: Not so fast, Fox.
FOX: Who are you?
*Young Xehanort reverses time and tells Krystal to leave without Fox*
Young Xehanort had changed the ending “Fox and Krystal” to “Star Wolf Returns”…
Star Wolf rises! Across Lylat, people talk of Wolf O'Donnell and his courageous crew. But they are less kind to Krystal, feeling that she was wrong to abandon Star Fox. But she ignores the talk and proceeds with her new life as a member of Star Wolf.
Eventually, the slings and arrows of the populace are too much to bear. They begin to hiss as she walks by, and name her traitor to her face. She is alone... and hated. She pulls away from Star Wolf and tries to find meaning in this new, cruel world.
Haunted by her past, Krystal abandons her life and flees to a distant galaxy. Changing her name to Kursed, she survives by collecting bounties on the worst scum in the galaxy. Years later, she runs into Fox during a job on planet Kew... He does not recognize her.
Kursed saw that Fox was miserable and tried to apologize, but Fox was tortured by his past and he refused to remember. Then, Young Xehanort had offered him an opportunity to remove the pain. Kursed refused to allow Fox to accept his offer, but he did.
Thus, his heart became corrupted with darkness as he became an evil emperor by the name Dark Fox. Dark Fox has brought doom to Lylat and Star Fox and Star Wolf to their demise.
He ruled all of Lylat and anyone who stood in his way had met their end. Kursed began to cry, realizing that she had made an awful mistake joining Star Wolf. The populace was enslaved and no one dared to fight back against Dark Fox’s evil empire.
Kursed found ROB 64, informing her that Dark Fox is on planet Venom, planning to resurrect Andross and destroy Corneria. She refused to help because she was concerned that she too might meet her end and never live to see Fox again.
Suddenly, fate has come as Mickey Mouse emerges from a corridor of light. Kursed was told that that only true love can expel the darkness from Fox and return him to his form of light.
The darkness cannot be destroyed by an Arwing, her Cloud Runner or her staff, so she was given the special Keyblade of darkness to fight back against Dark Fox’s army. She changed her name back to Krystal as she heads for Venom to put an end to this horrible nightmare for good.

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 want to start a Krystal support team so I thought I'd pitch the idea here.
Me and a bunch of other people on Twitter have started a group in hopes to unify as many Krystal fans as possible, because I've realized that there are SO many Krystal supporters online but they are so scattered and quiet. I think it's important for us to be all commenting together about support for Krystal and 'liking' each other's comments on Youtube/Facebook (extremely important because it means Nintendo themselves WILL see it)
I think on Nintendo's official Youtube and Facebook pages are the best places to do these "unified comments", if they continue to see the support for her (and Star Fox Assault, because it signifies not only Krystal's inclusion but also the actual potential for growth the SF series has) then they may take our support into consideration when making a new SF game!
I wanted to see if anyone on here wanted to be involved with us actively commenting/liking Krystal related posts on YouTube.
I can update this thread with links of videos we'll be targeting for this "unified support" It will really help with our cause and if you are a Krystal supporter then this is a really efficient way of showing that support/increasing her odds of returning to the series in general!
Please let me know if any of you are interested!
Wolf O'Donnell is arguably one of the most mysterious character in the Star Fox Franchise, however there are hints about what backstory the mysterious canine might have.
While Wolf is said to have been 19 years old during Star Fox 64, he appears to have been retconned into being much older than Fox in Star Fox Assault judging by his older sounding and rougher voice in said game. His tone of voice later on was carried over to Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Star Fox Zero, and the StarFox Wiki goes as far as listing him as 38 years old, with Fox being listed as 29.
While Wolf has no Homeworld established, it's safe to assume Wolf may not have originated from Corneria, as both General Pepper and Cornerian soldiers appear to speak with American accents. Additionaly, the Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins Animated Short suggests that Corneria's native population consists only of cats and dogs.
This has lead to some people speculating that Wolf may have originated from elsewhere in the galaxy, such as Macbeth (Such as the Lylat Legacy fanseries comic, and the fanfiction called Notorious: The Life of Wolf O'Donnell.)
Despite this, the manual for Star Fox Assault states that Wolf has been wanted by the Cornerian army for many years due to crimes such as larnecy and treason.
It is also unclear when Star Wolf was formed. It is stated that Wolf formed Star Wolf when he was hired by Andross, however the Star Fox Wiki claims Star Wolf and Star Fox tangled in battle many times before then, but Wolf's trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS suggests that Wolf formed Star Wolf after having served Andross before the latter was exiled to Venom. The Star Fox Wiki claims Wolf met Leon in a bar on Venom after being hired by Andross to form Star Wolf.
Hence, it is difficult to establish when exactly the team was formed, or who he formed it with.
Interestingly, the Star Fox wiki claims Wolf used to be the leader of a gang of Space Pirates, presumably the same ones who fought the Cornerian Army at Sector Z. If this is true, it would explain how Wolf recruited various criminals around the time of Star Fox Assault, who even went as far as call him "Lord O'Donnell".
The Japanese Star Fox 64 guide interestingly refers to Star Wolf as a "band of outcasts manipulated by Pigma." Judging by the Star Fox Assault manual mentioning Wolf being wanted for larnecy and treason, it's safe to assume Wolf does still have some kind of past connection with Corneria. Pigma manipulating Star Wolf is also backed up by Pigma's Smash 4 trophy claiming he convinced Wolf to form Star Wolf, but as previously stated, exactly when is difficult to establish.
Wolf is also said to have a past rivalry with James McCloud in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This was later confirmed in Star Fox Zero with Wolf saying the following to Fox during their one-on-one battle on Fichina: "I'm impressed! I haven't had this much fun since I fought your father." And an unused Voice Clip has Wolf say the following: "What's wrong? Your father put up more of a fight!"
Wolf is also hinted at having a grudging respect for James and Fox. In Star Fox Assault, Wolf would utter the following words if he shot down Fox: "You ain't your father after all..." Additionaly, Star Fox Command claims that both Fox and Wolf have a grudging respect towards each other.
A user on Gamefaqs has also stated Miyamoto said that Fox and Wolf were friends before Wolf was contacted by Pigma. Wolf is also said to have had a pupil-master relationship with James on the StarFox Wiki.
This makes sense since Fox clearly knows about Star Wolf before they meet each other on Fichina in Star Fox 64 and in Sector Beta in Star Fox Zero.
Wolf's quotes in Star Fox 64 and Star Fox Zero have also let many fans to believe Wolf had some kind of involvement with the death of James McCloud, where Wolf would say "You'll be seeing your dad soon, Fox!" in SF64 and "You'll be seeing your father soon..." in SF0.
I am aware that the StarFox wiki lacks sources however. If anyone has any information or hints about Wolf and his team, feel free to post in the comments.
(And feel free to move this post if needed.)
