So with Zero here and out and an all new timeline established both familiar and different to what we already know, I figure it'd be fun if we collaborated on organizing the unique differences between each (as well as the similarities). I'm only listing what I know, so comment on what I forget or miss and I'll add it! The SNES Canon: Material Included: Starfox, Starfox 2, Nintendo Power Comic, Starfox Manual Storyline Highlights: -James is known as "Fox Sr.", Fox is known as "Fox Jr.". -Star Wolf exists in Starfox 2; unsure if this applies any of their backstory from 64 though (Pigma's betrayal, etc) -Andross was raised by CYBORG PIGS, has a robot pig adjutant named Herbert (the comic was weird) -Andross also was in love with Fox's mother, Vixy, and accidentally killed her with a car bomb meant for James/Fox Sr -James/Fox Sr. died when transporting an experimental weapon that exploded, most likely booby trapped by Andross. -Andross was banished to Venom after an experiment of his caused a natural disaster on Corneria -Andross discovered ancient technology on Venom and used it to create his army alongside recruiting/enslaving/mind controlling the native reptile inhabitants -Fara, Fay and Miyu are exclusive to this canon. Honorable mention goes to Algy (Was he meant to be Andrew or his own character?) -Andross dies a LOT in this canon. (Once at the end of Starfox, then THREE times in the post-game comic, then a fifth time in Starfox 2!) -Venom is terraformed in Starfox 2; may have been green before Andross's arrival (the comic suggests it was barren, the manual says Andross polluted it) -Sector Y is a "space ocean" full of aquatic themed animals; Sector X and Z are just debris fields orbit Corneria -Macbeth is a volcanic planet with a hollow interior. Titania is a frozen planet (that or Doctor Hangar's weather controller made it frozen?) -Locations unique to the SNES canon are Meteor, the Black Hole, Out of this Dimension, Eladard, and Astropolis. -Star Fox start out as bandits who raid Andross' armies, illustrating them as a Robin Hood against a corrupt empire; the greater implication is that Venom and Corneria are opposing super powers fighting across the Lylat system. -The Arwing is experimental technology that Starfox was asked to use; it did not exist previously. -There is no "Original Starfox" before Fox/Falco/Slippy/Peppy; James/Fox Sr. was a Cornerian pilot -Starfox's ages are different than other canons: Fox and Falco are in their mid20s and Peppy only in his 30s. Slippy is still 18, however. -The Arwing has a mecha form in Starfox 2 The 64 Canon: Material Included: Starfox 64, Starfox 64 Player's Guide, Farewell Beloved Falco Comic, Starfox Adventures, Starfox Assault, Starfox Command Storyline Highlights: -Introduces Beltino, James as "James", and the "G1" Starfox team along with Pigma's betrayal -Andross before the war seems much more sinister, having once reduced Lylat to a "wasteland of near extinction" -Andross is again banished to Venom but the ruins this time seem to be ancient instead of advanced. -Andross' army consists mostly of apes instead of reptiles -Unique major characters are Krystal, Panther, Dash, Amanda, and Lucy. -Introduces other species beyond Lylatians: Anglars and Aparoids -Introduced the Landmaster tank and Blue Marine -Andross has a more tangible, physical form in this canon compared to others -Unique locations are Katina, Aquas, and Solar. -Sector Y and Z are different from the SNES canon: rather than a space ocean and a construction yard, they are merely massive radioactive nebulae and space graveyards. -Fichina is erroneously called Fortuna in SF64. This is remedied in Assault. -Solar appears to be a red dwarf in SF64, but is changed to a yellow or orange dwarf in Command. This is retroactively applied to SF643D as well. The truth is though Solar is not a star at all, but merely a molten planet like Macbeth is in the SNES canon. -(WIP!)
