    |II. Introduction|
     ================
      Welcome one and welcome all to my guide for SFA! I really enjoy 
    this game and it had gotten to a point where I decided I should 
    start my next FAQ dedicated to this game. And here it is, right
    before you! I recommend getting this game whether you're familiar
    with Star Fox games or not. If you utilize your time playing this
    game, I can almost guarantee that you'll enjoy it :) 
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     ===============
    |III. Characters|
     ===============
    
    Star Fox members: 
    ----------------
    Fox McCloud - The main character in the game. You get to play as
                  him. Fox is the leader of the Star Fox squad. He 
                  has great valour, strength, and determination. 
                  These qualities are more than enough to ensure his 
                  great leadership. Fox is the top ace pilot of the
                  Star Fox team (mainly because he's with the player!)
    
    Falco Lombardi - Falco is the cocky hotshot. He has been a member 
                     of the Star Fox team for a long time, but there
                     was a time where he decided to discard his team
                     members since he needed some time of his own. 
                     He eventually returned and helped Fox defeat 
                     Andross (prequel: Star Fox Dinosaur Planet) and
                     now he's back on the winning team! He is the second
                     best pilot of the Star Fox team. 
    
    Slippy Toad - An intelligent, yet dopey frog. Slippy is the brains
                  of the team, but during action, he CAN be a major
                  distraction since enemies just love to engage him
                  in battle. You'll have to take the time out of your 
                  busy schedule inorder to save the poor little frog. 
                  Methinks Slippy would make a perfect decoy =/
    
    Krystal -     The newest member in the Star Fox team, Krystal is 
                  the character from Star Fox Dinosaur Planet. She 
                  was saved by Fox from a catastrophe. Like Slippy,
                  Krystal can also be a distraction when in battle
                  so be sure to save her from enemy threat. Krystal's
                  love interest is Fox, although Fox himself will not
                  acknowledge this. 
    
    Peppy Hare - He has been a member of Star Fox since the day it was
                 established by James McCloud. Now too old to fly an
                 Arwing (or any other utilities for that matter), Peppy
                 is now the advisor of the team. He will brief you 
                 through the missions and give you helpful tips 
                 throughout the game. Although he has retired, Peppy
                 is still part of the Star Fox team. 
    
    R.O.B - He's the robot who is Peppy's assistant. He'll also appear
            throughout the game and give you advice. 
    
    General Pepper - He briefs you through missions and dictates commands
                     to Fox and his sqad. 
    
    The villains: 
    ------------
    
    Andrew Oikinny - Ah yes, back from the good ol' days on Star Fox 64,
                     this guy made his first debut. He was formerly a 
                     member of team Star Wolf but he disbanded from the 
                     group inorder to divulge his own plans. He wants to
                     avenge his uncle Andross, who was killed by Fox and
                     Falco. 
    
    Pigma         -  Just like Oikinny, Pigma was once a member of 
                     Star Wolf but the pig abandoned the squad inorder
                     to set out his own agenda. But before a member of
                     Star Wolf, Pigma was a member of Star Fox but he
                     had betrayed the team by siding with Andross against
                     James McCloud and Peppy Hare. 
    
    Wolf O'Donnel - He is the leader of the Star Wolf sqad, who are the
                    rivals of Star Fox. Wolf and Fox were good friends
                    when they were young, but something soon changed 
                    their relationship and now Wolf strives to defeat
                    Fox and his Star Fox team. He is the best pilot 
                    out of Star Wolf. 
    
    Leon -          Falco's rival, Leon is also a hotshot. He is the 
                    second best pilot of the Star Wolf team. 
    
    Panther -       The newest member of the Star Wolf squad. His
                    Wolfen has the picture of a red rose. Krystal
                    is his rival, although Panther does have a 
                    thing for her.. 
    
    Other Characters:
    ----------------
    
    Tricky - The cute little triceratop from Star Fox Dinosaur Planet
             is back! You'll get to see him in the Sauria level. 
    
    James McCloud - Father of Fox McCloud, James was a top ace pilot.
                    He fell in love with the arwing and decided to
                    pursue his career on honing skills flying one. 
                    He was the original leader of the Star Fox team
                    as well as the founder. James McCloud was killed
                    by Andross when he embarked on a mission to Venom
                    with his 2 team members, Peppy and Pigma.

                                               enemies. 
    
    Hold down left trigger + Left analog stick = Make your character
                                                 starfe; useful 
                                                 maneuever for dodging
                                                 and retaliating 
                                                 simutaneously. In other
                                                 words, defensive and
                                                 offensive.

                                        up high.

                  continue the mission that you're playing or quit
                  the game. 
    
    On Arwing: 
    ---------
    Left analog stick = Flying the arwing around 
    
    Right analog stick = Up: Arwing does a loop
                         Down: Arwing somersaults and flies to
                               the opposite direction of where
                               you were going 
    
    Directional pad = left/right = Displays the map of the level 
                                   (exterior)
    
    Y = Boost, which makes the Arwing go faster but there is a 
        certain limit. The boost meter is below the number of 
        lives you have remaining, so watch it carefully when
        utilizing this. 
    
    B = Fire a bomb; also to cancel when pressing Start/Pause. 
    
    A = Fire Arwing lasers; hold down A button until meter reaches
        red. Let go of the A button to execute a powered-up laser
        blast. 
    
    X = Land Arwing (only works if you're in a planet/base that has 
                     a landing surface; will not work in outer space).
    
    Left trigger = Arwing does a barrel roll 
    
    Right trigger = Brakes, which makes the Arwing come to a complete
                    stop but has a limit. Likewise boost, check the 
                    boost meter that's below your lives. 
    
    Start/Pause = Pauses your game; you have the options to either 
                  continue the mission that you're playing or quit
                  the game. 
    
    On Landmaster: 
    -------------
    NOTE: The Landmaster's controls are a bit more complex and may
          take some time adjusting to. 
    
    Left analog stick = Make the Landmaster move around 
    
    Directional pad = left/right = Displays the map of the level 
                                   (exterior)
    
    Y = To make the Landmaster float temporarily; also known as
        hover. Watch the boost meter to see the limit. 
    
    A = Fire 
    
    B and X = Boost; also the cancel button 
    
    Left trigger + left/right (analog stick) = Making Landmaster perform 
                                               a barrel roll; useful for
                                               dodging attacks from
                                               enemies. 
    
    Right trigger + left analog stick = Making Landmaster look in desired 
                                        directions; useful for targetting 
                                        enemies that are up high. 
    
    Start/Pause = Pauses your game; you have the options to either 
                  continue the mission that you're playing or quit
                  the game.

     =======
    |V. Tips|   
     =======
    
    On foot: 
    -------
    - Starfe. This is an excellent maneuever. It's both a defense and an
      offense, dodging enemy attacks and retaliating. 
    - Roll over to avoid enemy gunfire, although this maneuever isn't as
      reliable as starfing. 
    - When using the blaster, make sure you charge it to the max most 
      often inorder to take out enemies faster. 
    - Press the jump button to stay out of harms way, such as a falling
      object about to impact you or enemies trying to ambush you. 
    - Use your custom weapons wisely. Your blaster is the default/primary
      weapon but it will not serve as your greatest asset. Utilize weapons
      such as Gatling Guns with great care, making sure that you'll be
      using it for a good cause. 
    - Almost all the times, Grenades don't work. Depending on how you throw
      them, they could end up missing the target. Do not use Grenades at 
      all, unless you have the skills to calibrate. 
    - Use the sniper to pick off far away enemies. The sniper is a VERY 
      useful weapon and you definetely do not want to waste away this 
      weapon's ammo. There will be a certain mission where you'll have to
      utilize the sniper, so whether you like this weapon or not, I suggest
      you get used to handling it. 
    - Do not pick up any health unless you absolutely need it. Getting health
      while you're at full health, or nearly full, means that you may not see
      the health again. Health comes in first-aid kits, so pick them up wisely.
    
    On Arwing:
    ---------
    - Barrel roll. This is a very effective maneuver. You can dodge enemy fire
      and repel against other threats, making the situation more advantageous
      to your favor. 
    - Boost only if your teammates are in trouble or if you want to kill a 
      certain enemy but you're too out of reach from him. Normally under 
      these conditions should you use the boost trick, but you can use it 
      as long as you're using it with care. 
    - Likewise brake, make sure you handle it with care. If you're about 
      to hit an obstacle that's right in front of you, use the brake to 
      slow down/come to a stop so you can avoid that danger. 
    - If enemies are behind you, press right analog up for your Arwing
      to loop, making the enemy the new target for your sensors! 
    - Utilize your bombs carefully, especially during boss fights. Don't
      just fire your bombs away on enemies you know you can beat with
      laser blasts. That will be an utter waste. There will be a certain
      level where you'll have to use bombs as your secondary weapon. 
    
    On Landmaster:
    -------------
    - You can run over most enemies with the landmaster, since it's a tank
      after all. This makes easier kills and you can ramp up points much
      quicker than pressing the fire button. 
    - Barrel roll to dodge enemy attacks. As the Landmaster, I think this
      maneuever will be used more often than other tactics. 
    - Since the Landmaster isn't versatile, handle it carefully. Do NOT
      go up an obstacle and press the fire button, otherwise you'll get 
      damaged because of the Landmaster's powerful armament.  
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     ================
    |VI. Title Screen|
     ================
     When starting out the game, you'll see the title screen which has the
    following aspects:
    
    A) SINGLE MODE: If you just got this game, then you'll have to create 
                    a new file for yourself. You can do this by selecting
                    "New User". Enter your name and there you go. Then 
                    you'll have to select the controller settings, which 
                    are "Single Stick", Dual Stick", or "R Button Run". 
                    For new players (or experts), I would recommend picking 
                    the Single Stick controller since it's easier to handle 
                    and you can learn the controls of the game faster. After 
                    picking it, an option will pop up asking if you want to 
                    invert Y-Axis for the Arwing, Landmaster, and Pilot. You 
                    also have the choice to add the rumble feature or not. 
                    All the options are default "YES", so keep them that way. 
                    If you play as "Guest", then you cannot save the game in
                    between. After creating a new file, you'll see the STORY 
                    option which allows you to play the main game. MISSION and 
                    SURVIVAL are also there, but are inaccessable at the moment 
                    until you have beaten the STORY mode of this game. 
      
                    The MISSION option is available after beating the game,
                    allowing you to play any of all the levels you have beaten
                    in STORY mode. 
    
                    SURVIVAL is also unlocked as soon as you beat the STORY  
                    mode of the game. This mode allows you to play all the 
                    missions again without saving. It's kind of like playing
                    as "Guest". It's a good mode since you can perfect your
                    gaming skills and see how good you can be without saving
                    in between. 
            
                    When you're just beginning, you'll notice 5 symbols on 
                    the bottom. I will explain what each of them mean: 
    
                    The gold star symbol is earned when you beat
                    a level with all your teammates alive. There 
                    are 10 levels in this game, so there are 10 
                    of these star symbols to earn. 
     
                    The next symbol is called a Special Flag. There 
                    are 50 flags to find in total, with 5 found in 
                    each of the 10 levels. Unfortunately I am not 
                    willing to devote my time into explaining where 
                    exactly the flags are, even though I found all 50. 
                    But there is an awesome guide here in GameFaqs 
                    that situates where exactly all the flags are. 
                    I believe it's kirbyroks' guide, so please check 
                    that out. 
    
                    The last 3 symbols are the badges: Bronze, Silver, 
                    and Gold. Depending on what difficulty you're 
                    playing the game in, you can earn that particular 
                    type of medal. There are 10 to earn for all 3. 
                    These are earned by beating a level and earning 
                    the right amount of points required to earn that 
                    medal. 
    
     And that is all for SINGLE MODE. 
    
    
    B) VS. MODE: Here you can play against your friend/s in an all-out
                 battle. You can play up to 4-players. You can select
                 stages, set out your own rules for versus mode, and 
                 you can even earn rewards after playing versus mode 
                 a certain number of times. I won't be explaining 
                 what those rewards are, and you won't find it on the
                 rewards section of this guide. But you can check
                 out other SFAssault guides here in GameFaqs so they 
                 can fill out your inquiries. 
    
    
    C) OPTIONS: The following 3 options are displayed after selecting 
                OPTIONS from the title screen:
     
                USER SETTINGS is where you enter player names and select
                Controller configurations. When you created a new file,
                you were given a choice on selecting what kind of 
                control configurations you wanted. You can change the
                Controller configurations here if you feel like it. 
    
                PLAY DATA is where you can View game records. You can 
                view SINGLE or VS. MODE records. For SINGLE, It will 
                display your scores from all the levels you have played
                and will show your accumulated score. Your Survival 
                score will also be recorded here. For VS. MODE, it will
                display records such as "Beat by Landmaster" or "Items 
                used". 
    
                SOUND is where you can adjust your audio settings from
                either Mono or Stereo. Test em' out both and pick which
                audio is best to your liking. 
    
    
    D) BONUS GAME: Just as the title says, you can play a bonus game. 
                   But you will have to unlock it. To unlock the bonus
                   game, you'll have to earn the 10 silver badges by
                   playing the levels under the SILVER difficulty. 
                   The game is Xevious by the way, a game that was 
                   pretty popular back in 1982 if I recall...
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     ================
    |VII. Walkthrough|    
     ================
      Time for us to engage in battle. We have to stop all the aparoids! 
    Before starting off, you'll be given a choice on which difficulty of
    the game you want to play - Bronze (easy), Silver (medium), Gold (hard).
    For beginners, I suggest playing Bronze just so you get an easy experience
    of this game so you can try out the latter difficulties. Are we ready to 
    begin the assault? Let's go then! 
    
    ----------------------------------
    A)Mission 1 = Fortuna: A New Enemy
    ----------------------------------
    
    Badge requirements:
    ------------------
    BRONZE = 450 points
    SILVER = 1100 points
    GOLD = 2300 points 
    ------------------
    
    ~*Part One*~
      --------
      Whee an arwing level! What a perfect way to start out an awe-inspiring 
    Star Fox game! This level is very easy and a sterling opportunity to get 
    used to the arwing's controls. As you move forward, you'll spot an enemy 
    ship flying by. Destroy it with your laser. 4 enemy ships will appear 
    afterwards as Slippy gets cocky... Quicky destroy the 4 enemy ships, 
    then assist Slippy who will be chased by 1 enemy ship. After destroying 
    it, another enemy ship will appear so destroy it. Slippy will give you 
    his thanks after saving him. 
    
      As you move on, you'll a bunch of enemy ships who are firing laser 
    blasts at you. You can easily dodge them by moving your arwing around
    at steady angles or by using the barrel roll. Destroy many of these 
    enemies as you can because it is key for whichever badge you're going
    for. You'll soon see a laser powerup in front of you after wiping out
    some of the enemies. Fly to it and your single laser will become double
    laser. After getting it, 2 enemies appear and they fire a thick laser 
    at you. Dodge the attacks and destroy them quickly. More enemy ships 
    will appear so destroy as much as you can. You'll see a silver ring
    that replenishes a portion of your shield, so fly to it. More enemies
    will fly by shooting laser blasts at you, so destroy as much as you 
    can. 
    
      You'll spot a battleship that has a purple node. Shoot that node to
    blow it up. You'll see a bomb in front of you so pick it up, then 
    you'll spot another battleship that has a purple node. Shoot at it
    like before and it will blow up. An enemy will fly by so destroy it. 
    Now destroy the last battleship that you see, then pick up the silver 
    ring to restore shield. 
    
      A LOT of enemies will appear, firing lasers at you. Dodge them, then
    take out as many as you can. Now comes a tough enemy. He will fire a 
    beam at you that does good damage, so you'll want to avoid that. Just
    keep firing your lasers at him, dodging his beams, and he should be
    destroyed soon. 
    
      You'll see more enemy ships on the left and Slippy will fly by, 
    giving you a silver ring for your troubles. Destroy the enemy ships
    then pick up the ring. You'll spot another battle ship from a distance
    so fire at the purple node to destroy it. A few enemy ships will appear
    afterwards, so take them out. Another battleship will be seen so take
    it out like you did the others. Falco will fly by, giving you a free
    bomb. Destroy the battleship that you see in front of you.
    
      A few enemies will fly by so kill them quick. Slippy will detect 
    something on his radar soon. It is discovered that they are stealth
    squadrons. Slippy will prompt you to try out your bombs. You COULD
    try out one bomb, but that'd be a waste. Just use your laser blasts
    at it. Watch out for the missles that it launchs. Barrel roll to
    avoid them. After destroying it, another stealth squadron will appear
    so defeat it like you did the last one. Afterwards, more enemy ships
    will appear so take out as many as you can. 2 enemy ships will appear,
    firing thick laser blasts at you so destroy them quick. 2 more stealth
    squadrons will appear so defeat them like before, making sure to watch
    out for the missles that they launch. 
    
      A few enemy ships appear so take them out. More will appear so 
    decimate them quick. 6 enemy ships will appear and start firing at 
    you so destroy them. A bunch of enemy ships will appear so destroy
    as many as you can. 5 enemy ships will appear and they fire missles
    at you, so barrel roll to dodge and destroy them. Part one of this
    level is complete. 
    
      Watch the cutscene until part two begins. 
    
    ~*Part Two*~
      --------
      Now you are at planet Fortuna, in the wilderness. Fly through the 
    opening and destroy the enemies that you will see. Keep following 
    the path by flying low, destroying the enemies that you see. You'll 
    see a silver ring soon, so pick it up to restore shield. 
    
      Falco will soon be in trouble and asks you for help. Do note that
    you have to keep all your teammates safe and sound, otherwise you
    won't earn the gold star symbol. Take out the enemies that are 
    giving chase to Falco, then destroy the 2 tanks that you see on the
    left. 
    
      Now you're at a wide-open area in a forest. Destroy as much enemies
    as you can, particularly the tanks. You'll see a laser powerup in front
    of you. Pick it up and your lasers are now upgraded to hyper lasers, 
    the most powerful laser. Continue destroying enemies that you see as
    you advance forward. 
    
      After exiting the open area, you'll see stationary turrets that are 
    on the left side so destroy them all. Watch out for the missles that 
    they fire. A few enemy ships will appear, so destroy them as well. 
    You'll see more stationary turrets so take them all out quickly. 
    Falco will fly by, giving you another bomb. 
    
      You'll see a couple of tanks that are riding across a bridge. 
    Destroy them all, making sure to dodge their lasers. You'll be 
    approaching a closed door, but Krystal exclaims that there are 
    enemies about to attack you behind that door. Nonetheless, she
    is right. A few enemy ships will try to blast you, so destroy
    them quickly. 
    
      Flying over a base of some sort, you'll see a few tanks and enemy
    ships so destroy them. A few obstacles will be in the way, so 
    destroy them because you earn points if you do. One of the obstacles
    contains a silver ring. Slippy will be in trouble once again, so 
    assist the poor frog by destroying the enemy ship. Now you'll see 
    a few more tanks as you advance, so destroy them. A few enemy ships
    will appear so take them out. You'll spot a life vest item so fly 
    to it and you'll receive a 1UP! Destroy the enemy ships that you 
    see, then shoot the obstacles that are below you. You'll see 2 
    tanks, left and right, so destroy them. Do not focus on the enemies
    that Krystal is chasing because she will destroy them herself. Now 
    you'll encounter a bunch of tanks. Use your bomb to take out a large 
    number of them, or just use your laser blasts. The door in front of
    you will open and Oikkiny will rush by. 
    
      Watch the cutscene.
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Oikinny
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      Being the first boss in this game, Oikinny is VERY easy. He's 
    very much similar to Andross, who was the final boss in SF64 and
    Star Fox Adventures. Anyways, Oikinny will try to slap you with 
    his right hand. Quickly shoot the node that you see then quickly
    fly your arwing up before Oikinny slaps you. He will try to slap
    you with his left hand, so shoot at the node, then fly up quick. 
    Oikinny will now unveil both of his hands, so shoot whichever hand
    you want and it will get destroyed. You'll probably see a silver 
    ring after his hand is gone, so pick it up to restore shield. 
    
      Oikinny will now try to punch you with whichever hand is 
    remaining. If you destroyed his left hand, then quickly move over
    to the left side of the screen. If right hand, quickly move over
    to the right side of the screen. Oikinny will unveil the hand 
    once again so shoot it quickly and you'll defeat him! 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
      Watch the cutscene. 
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Aparoid Moth
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      Hmm.. this boss is slightly harder than the fight with Oikinny 
    was, but it's still very easy. Shoot the eyes it has on its wings
    and chip them all off with your hyper lasers. Avoid the ring 
    blasts that it fires at you. With each wing that you destroy, 
    you'll probably see a silver ring.
    
      After taking out all the wings, the aparoid will fly up to the 
    screen, firing an inbound meteor shower at you. This part might
    be tricky since you'll have to move your arwing from the raining
    meteorites, making sure not to get hit by one. The meteors drop 
    on you fast, so barrel roll away to dodge em'. 
    
      After it finishes raining meteorites at you, the aparoid will 
    reveal a pink node which is its weak point! Shoot at the pink
    node, getting as much hits as possible. Be sure to watch out 
    for the projectiles it fires at you and keep firing at the node. 
    Now it will try to spray flames on you, so fly from left to right
    inorder to dodge. 
    
      The boss will repeat its same tactic, as it goes up in the air
    and fires a meteorite shower at you. Once again, watch out for 
    those and dodge diligently. After that, it will reveal the pink
    node again so fire at it. Keep firing and you will defeat this 
    boss. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    MISSION COMPLETE. 
    
      Watch the cutscene. 
    
      Your score will be resulted. If you've played this level on 
    Bronze, then surely you've earned the badge. Hopefully you also
    kept your teammates alive. On the Silver difficulty, it's not 
    hard to earn the badge. But you'll have to destroy even more
    enemies than you would in Bronze. On the Gold difficulty, it
    will be hard to earn the badge as you have to constantly keep
    firing and destroy a LOT of enemies. 
    
    ------------------------------------------
    B)Mission 2 = Katina: Frontier Base Battle
    ------------------------------------------
    
    Badge requirements:
    ------------------
    BRONZE = 400 points
    SILVER = 1100 points
    GOLD = 2300 points 
    ------------------
    
    ~*Part One*~
      ---------
      This is your first mission on foot. As soon as you begin, 
    destroy the many aparoids that you see before you. Go forward 
    and you'll encounter a few more. As you destroy more, a batch 
    of them will spawn out of nowhere. Keep attacking them. Move 
    forward and you'll see a machine gun. Switch your blaster for 
    the machine gun and Use it to destroy more of the aparoids. 
    
      Suddenly a target number will be displayed on the right side
    of the screen. There are 2 targets that have to be destroyed. 
    Move east and you'll see a tank drone. Use your machine gun 
    to destroy it, or a charged laser blast. Go forward and you'll
    spot more aparoids. Destroy them and you'll see some tank 
    drones. Destroy them as well from a distance. Move west and
    go forward. More aparoids will be in your way so shoot them all. 
    You will see the first target, which is a giant 
    aparoid spider. Watch out for the energy ball that it fires, as 
    it does heavy damage. Switch your machine gun to blaster and 
    use a charged blast inorder to destroy it, preferabbly from a 
    distance. 
    
      One more target remains. Go forward and you'll see a Hi-launcher,
    which is a rocket launcher basically. Switch your blaster for the
    laucher and go west. You will spot the final target, so use your 
    Hi-launcher to destroy it in one go. 
    
      Watch the cutscene. 
    
      You'll see another hi-launcher in front of you so go pick it 
    up for more ammo. Now quickly run over to the Landmaster, which
    is near you. Look for it on your radar if you can't find it. 
    There are 8 targets now, so destroy the aparoids that you see,
    or run them over. You'll spot the first target right near you,
    so destroy it. 7 targets left. 
    
      On your right, you'll see a blocked passageway. Destroy the 
    blocked passageway, then you will be given entry. Boost up the
    slope. Krystal will be in trouble, so save her. This is hard
    when you're using a landmaster, since the targetting sucks 
    and you have limited movement. But since you are at the top 
    of the base, after going up the slope, this should be easy. 
    Just look up and look for Krystal's arwing. Destroy the 3 
    enemy ships that you see chasing her. Hover if you're having 
    troubles targetting them. After you're done saving her, you'll 
    spot another target near you so destroy it. 6 targets left. 
    
      Destroy the aparoids that get in your way. The landmaster
    should be able to give you auto target, so you'll see another
    target from a far-off distance. Shoot your laser at it and
    the target will be destroyed. 5 targets left. 
    
      Now turn to the opposite direction of where your landmaster 
    is facing. You will see another target that is right below 
    you, so jump off the base with your landmaster and destroy it.
    4 targets left. 
    
      Go west and you will spot another target. Pick it off and
    3 targets are left. 
    
      You'll see a silver ring on top of the left mini-base. Pick it 
    up if you need to restore some shield. If you need health for 
    Fox, exit your landmaster then go inside the right mini base. 
    You can find it there. If you don't need any recovery right now,
    then let's continue. 
    
      Go west, destroying the aparoids that get in your way. You'll
    see a passageway blocked by a wall. Use your laser to destroy the 
    wall, revealing 2 more targets. Destroy them both and 1 target
    will be left. 
    
      Go forward, then west. Look on your radar for a red dot. That
    is your final target, so go there and destroy the last aparoid
    spider. 
    
      Watch the cutscene until part two begins. 
    
    ~*Part Two*~
      --------
      There are 8 targets once again, but this time they are not 
    aparoid spiders. They are aparoid hatchers, which spawns more
    and more aparoids. Check your radar to find them all. The red
    dots are your targets, so go to each one and destroy the hatchers
    that are clinging to the walls. It's very easy to find them. 
    More enemies have appeared this time around, so be on your guard.
    
      After destroying 2 hatchers, Slippy will be in trouble. Look
    up in the sky with your landmaster and locate Slippy's arwing. 
    Hover up if you need to and destroy the enemies that are giving
    him chase. Yeah it's pretty hard when using the landmaster, but
    do your best to keep him out of harms way. Use a charged laser
    blast to get an auto target, which will make things easier to 
    kill the enemies in the air. 
    
      Now follow your radar and look for more of the red dots, which
    are your targets. You'll probably see a snail-like aparoid. Watch
    out for it, as it does good damage to your landmaster. The head is
    its weak point so keep firing at it. But you'll have to get close
    inorder to kill it since the snail likes to cover its weak point
    and lob bombs at you from a distance. 
    
      After destroying 3 more targets, Krystal prompts you to check 
    inside the buildings for more targets. Ignore her and destroy 
    the 2 remaining targets that are outside the base. You will see 
    a target that's right in front of an elevator, so destroy it. 
    
      Now only 1 target remains so exit your Landmaster by pressing 
    Z, then board the elevator. Be sure to have your blaster ready
    since you're about to enter a snakepit of aparoids as you
    elevate down. Destroy the many aparoids that you see here, then
    pick up the health that you see in front of you (if you need it).
    Now get to the target and se charged laser blasts to destroy it.
    
      Wait hold on... there's still 1 target remaining! You'll have 
    to find that last one, but first exit the base. DO NOT board 
    the elevator yet because an aparoid spider is occupying it. 
    Use a charged laser blast to destroy it. After doing so, board
    the elevator. 
    
      Get on your Landmaster and look for the final target on your 
    radar. Ignore the snail enemies if you see them, or you can 
    destroy them but make sure to hit fire at their heads at a 
    close range, but not TOO close. When you find the final 
    target, destroy it. 
    
      Watch the cutscene. 
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Giant Aparoid Spider
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      On bronze and silver, this boss is pretty easy. But on 
    gold, this boss is almost impossible to defeat. I lost my
    landmaster 7 times before defeating this guy with very 
    little health left as Fox. During the cut scene, you saw
    a pink node on top of the spider, right? That's its 
    weak spot. 
    
      As soon as the boss fight starts, go up to the spider.
    MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT GET STEPPED ON BY ONE OF ITS LEGS!
    On Bronze and Silver, it doesn't do that much damage to
    the landmaster, but on Gold, it's hell... But in any
    case, just don't get stepped on. Watch out for the multiple
    blasts that it fires at you. Barrel roll away to dodge. You 
    will see a pink node on the bottom of the boss, so shoot at 
    it until the boss falls over. QUICKLY hover to the top of 
    this beast because if you don't, then the spider will 
    recover and get back on its feet. When you're on top of it, 
    the pink node, which is its actual weak spot, will reveal
    itself. Quickly get in as many shots as you can. As soon 
    the node is covered, GET OFF of the spider because if you 
    don't, it will increase its external temperature which does 
    heavy damage if you stay on it too long. 
    
      Repeat the process. Blast the spider's bottom node first, 
    until it falls over. Hover on top of the spider, revealing
    the pink node. Fire at the node and get off of it as soon
    as the node disappears. Repeat again and you will defeat 
    this boss. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
      
    MISSION COMPLETE
    
      Watch the cutscene. 
    
      Your score will be resulted. If you've played this level on 
    Bronze, then surely you've earned the badge. Hopefully you also
    kept your teammates alive. On the Silver difficulty, it's not 
    hard to earn the badge. But you'll have to destroy even more
    enemies than you would in Bronze. On the Gold difficulty, it
    will be hard to earn the badge as you have to constantly keep
    firing and destroy a LOT of enemies, even the ones on the air. 
    I haven't earned the gold badge for this stage since it's very 
    hard to get it. 
      
    --------------------------------------------------------
    C)Mission 3 = Sargasso Space Zone: Hostilities Revisited 
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Badge requirements:
    ------------------
    BRONZE = 400 points
    SILVER = 900 points
    GOLD = 1500 points 
    ------------------ 
    
      Another on-foot mission, but this time you have an enemy guage 
    on the top left of the screen. If the guage rises higher and 
    higher, then that means enemies are attacking and Falco and 
    Krystal will want your help. The arwing is located on your 
    radar, so get on it only if the guage rises near its peak. 
    If it rises to the max, then game over. Soon as you begin, 
    you will be ambushed by several enemy troops. Take them out 
    with your blaster. Starfe or jump to dodge their laser attacks. 
    You'll see a machine gun nearby so pick it up. Go forward and 
    you'll see the first of the 6 targets that you have to destroy. 
    Kill the enemies that are surrounding the target, then used 
    several full-charged laser blasts to destroy the first target. 
    After destroying it, pick up the sensor bomb. 5 targets left. 
    
      There are more enemies nearby so kill them off quickly. Use
    the radar to find the targets. Remember that the red dot means
    it is a target. Go north west and you will spot another target,
    along with 2 enemies that launch missiles. Use charged laser
    blasts to kill both, then kill the enemy troops. Do not pick up 
    the health yet (assuming you're playing the game under Bronze 
    difficulty, otherwise you'd need it). 
    
      Now go up the slope on the right. Watch out for the exploding 
    barrels. Use your jump to evade them. Once you get to the top,
    destroy the 2 machines that are sending out the barrels using 
    charged laser blasts. You'll see Slippy in front of you. If you
    go right, you'll see a 1UP on top of a platform. Get it for an
    additional life. Before going up the next slope that you see, 
    pick up the sniper rifle that is next to 2 giant explosive 
    containers. Now go up the slope that you see, making sure to 
    watch out for the barrels. 
    
      When you make it to the top, take out the enemy that launches
    missiles using a charged laser blast. Now switch your blaster 
    to sensor bomb and place one in the middle of the barrel dispensers.
    Move away from the bomb and wait for a few seconds until the bomb
    sets off, destroying the dispensers. Now switch to your blaster. 
    
      Go left, down the slope, and you'll see another target. Take 
    out all the enemies here first, then use your charged laser blasts
    to destroy the target. 4 targets left. 
    
      Pick up the sensor bomb and some grenades. Destroy the 2 barrel
    dispensers that you see using charged laser blasts. Now go back 
    up the slope that you came from, where you destroyed the 2 
    dispensers using sensor bombs. Go up the slope that you see on 
    the right, making sure to watch out for the barrels. Destroy the
    barrel dispenser, then destroy the 3 stationary turrets using 
    charged blasts. Jump on the platforms and navigate carefully,
    making sure you don't fall off. Pick up the barrier and the 
    sniper rifle. 
    
      On the platform, take out your sniper rifle. Zoom in and you'll
    see a couple of enemies. Take them out with your sniper. You'll 
    also see a barrel dispenser if you look around with your sniper,
    so destroy that too. Keep picking off the enemies that you see 
    on your sniper until you can't find anymore. Switch back to your
    blaster when you're done.
    
      Cross the platform that you're on by going left. Now cautiously
    hang a left and you'll see multiple enemies in this area, as well
    as a target. Starfing is REALLY useful here so utilize it. You'll
    see an explosive container near the enemies so fire a charged laser
    at it and it will blow up, taking out a majority of the enemies. 
    Take out the remaining enemies, then the target. 3 targets left. 
    You don't have to pick up the grenade that you see, but if you want
    you can. 
    
      Make sure you check the enemy guage on the top left. If it has
    risen almost to a max at this point, then stop whatever it is 
    you are doing and quickly board your arwing to repel the enemy
    forces that are overwhelming Falco and Krystal. 
    
      If you're on your arwing right now, then destroy the battleships. 
    They are the same battleships from level 1, so fire at the purple 
    nodes to destroy them. As you destroy each one, the enemy guage 
    will be lowered. Keep destroying more of them until the guage 
    has subsided to a less-endangering amount. When you feel the
    situation is under control, fly back into the base.
    
      If not on your arwing, follow your radar. You'll see a target 
    that's right near an elevator. Destroy it with your charged laser. 
    2 targets left. 
    
      Kill any other enemies that get in your way. Now get on the 
    elevator and it will take you to the top floor. You'll encounter 
    a bunch of enemy troops here. Starf or roll over to dodge their 
    lasers and fight back using your blaster or a machine gun. 
    Destroy the stationary turret that's in front of you, then move 
    forward. You'll see a lot of enemies here and they can damage you 
    badly. You should have a barrier right now so use it for temporary 
    invincibility and pick off the enemies here. You'll see another 
    barrier after destroying a missile-launching enemy. Pick it up, 
    then move forward and destroy another missile-launching enemy. 
    You'll spot another one on the right, along with another target. 
    Destroy it first, then the target. 1 target left. 
    
      Keep moving and you'll see another missile-launching enemy. Take it
    out like you did before. Keep proceeding and you'll see a bunch of 
    enemies. Use your barrier for protection, then pick off all the enemies
    as you move on. You'll see a barrier in front so you can't go past it. 
    Go right and enter the door. You'll see a bunch of enemies in this room
    and the final target. Kill all the enemies here, then quickly destroy 
    the last target. Now get the 1UP that you see on the right of a platform.
    
      Watch the cutscene. 
    
      Star Wolf has appeared and they are attacking outside the base, so 
    you'll have to get to your arwing to combat them. Get out of the room,
    then go right. Go right again and hop on the elevator. After coming 
    to the ground level, hop on your arwing. 
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Star Wolf
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      Krystal is probably in trouble right now, so help her out first.
    After taking out the enemies for her, Krystal will give you her 
    thanks. After that, fly around the corner of the base and look for 
    a laser powerup. Pick it up to get twin lasers. Now concentrate on
    Star Wolf. 
    
      These guys are NOT hard. Infact, they're pathetic even if you're
    playing this on the gold difficulty. Wolf will focus his attacks 
    on you, so watch out. Leon and Panther won't do much but they will
    attack you if you come across them. Take out Wolf first. Think of
    him as a normal enemy ship, that can be destroyed easily. Wolf will
    keep flying away from your assaults, so follow him wherever he goes. 
    Don't bother using charged laser blasts, since all 3 of them can 
    dodge easily. Track down the coward and kill him. Remember to use 
    the radar. The red means they are your targets. 
    
      Concentrate on Panther next. He'll be flying around, not doing 
    much. But he will attack you if he gets the chance. Take him out
    like you did Wolf. Falco will probably ask for your assistance 
    since he'll be tailed by a couple of enemy ships. Help him out 
    first before finishing off Panther. After helping him, focus on
    Panther. 
    
      With 1 target left, Leon, track him down and dogfight him with 
    your armament. Just like Wolf and Panther, Leon should go down 
    in a snap. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    MISSION COMPLETE
    
      Watch the cutscene (it's funny regarding Falco and Panther, XD!)
    
    
      Your score will be resulted. If you've played this level on 
    Bronze, then surely you've earned the badge. Hopefully you also
    kept your teammates alive. On the Silver difficulty, it's not 
    hard to earn the badge. But you'll have to destroy even more
    enemies than you would in Bronze. On the Gold difficulty, it's
    not that hard to earn the badge. You'll have to destroy a lot
    of enemies inside the base and outside with your arwing. Also
    you have to finish the level quickly because there is a time
    bonus.

    ~*Part One*~
      --------
      Soon as you begin, ride on the landmaster that you see in front
    of you. There are 3 targets to destroy. Peppy will prompt you to 
    check your radar because the red dots on it represents the targets.
    They are very easy to find. Go forward and you'll see a bunch of
    aparoids. Run them over or blast them. You'll see the first target
    in front of you, but first take care of the apariod spiders and 
    other enemies. After clearing them out, go up to the target. You'll
    have to shoot at the node that's at the top. Make your landmaster 
    look up and fire at the node a few times. As you damage the node, 
    Peppy exclaims that it is the power supply. After it's destroyed, 
    2 targets are left. 
    
      Now follow your radar to find the other 2 targets, or follow this 
    guide. After destroying the first one, go west. A bunch of aparoids
    will come across your path so destroy whatever you see. As you move
    forward, you'll see a giant slug. Remember to get close to it and
    fire at its head inorder to kill it. Keep moving forward, killing 
    all the enemies as you go. You'll see a silver ring at north west,
    and also 2 stationary turrets. Destroy the turrets first (the 
    landmaster has auto target, so that's cool). Collect the silver
    ring to restore shield as you boost up the slope. A few aparoid
    spiders and tank drones will greet you but take them out quick. 
    Move forward and you'll find the second target, along with a bunch
    of aparoid spiders and tank drones. Destroy them first, then take
    out the target like you did the previous one. 1 target left. 
    
      After destroying it, you'll see a 1UP on your left so pick it 
    up for an extra life. Now go forward (use your landmaster's
    auto target to pick off enemies from a distance). Kill enemies
    that get in your way as you move on. You'll see the main base
    of Fichina, but it is covered by a forcefield so you can't 
    enter yet. Go west and keep moving. You'll spot a giant slug
    so kill it by shooting its head. Keep moving forward, down the
    gap, and you'll spot a few tank drones. Run them over, then 
    turn your landmaster around and you will see a tiny cave 
    passage. Go through it and you'll find the last target. 
    A giant slug along with a bunch of aparoid enemies will 
    accompany the target so take them out first. Now take out
    the last target and you are done. 
    
      After destroying it, go left and you'll see a health kit
    and another 1UP. Pick up the goods, then head over to the
    base that was covered by the shield, which has now been 
    disabled. If you can't remember where it is, it's at the
    center of the stage. 
    
      You can destroy the many enemies that are left if you 
    want, so you can earn whatever medal it is you are going
    for. If not, then head to the base. On the bronze difficulty,
    you'll see a health kit on of the base entrances. You'll 
    have to get off of your landmaster first, then enter the 
    base. Keep moving forward and a cut scene will begin. 
    
      After the cutscene, you will be ambushed by sentry bots.
    Pay attention to your radar. Locate the sentry bots that
    are in the circular base. To kill them, get close to them
    first then move away. They will try to hammer you with their
    attack, but their armor will be open. Fire your blaster 
    immediately and they will be destroyed. Repeat this with
    the other sentry bots, until the first group has been 
    destroyed. 
    
      More sentry bots will spawn so repeat the process on 
    shooting their vulnerable spots like before until you 
    have cleared out the second group. 
    
      Even more sentry bots will spawn afterwards, so just
    shoot down as many as you can until Falco enters the 
    scene. 
    
      Watch the cutscene. 
    
    ~*Part Two*~
      --------
      You are riding on the edge of Falco's arwing! This gives 
    you access to the most powerful weapon in the game - the 
    plasma cannon. Why? Because this baby has not only unlimited
    ammo, but it can take out a large number of enemies. Just 
    hold down the A button and it will keep firing. Basically
    just kill whatever things you see, in the air or at the
    ground. 
    
      As Falco moves his arwing, enemies will be attracted by
    his presence so you'll have to shoot down the many aparoids
    that get in his way. Look at your radar. The triangle means
    there are enemies right near you. The first enemy ship will
    appear so shoot it down. Look at the ground and you'll see
    a bunch of aparoids. Shoot them to earn good number of points.
    
      2 enemy ships will appear so kill them. Look at the ground
    and you'll see a bunch of aparoids and a target that can damage
    Falco's arwing badly if you don't destroy it. Destroy the things
    on the ground. 3 enemy ships will appear so shoot them down. 
    Another target will be spotted so shoot it quickly. You'll find
    another one on the ground. Take out the enemy ship that appears
    in front of you first, then destroy the target. Another target
    will be seen so destroy it. 3 enemy ships will appear so shoot
    them down. Now look at the ground and you'll see a target along
    with more aparoids. Shoot the target first, then the aparoids. 
    
      3 enemy ships will appear so shoot them. You'll see another
    target on top of the base so shoot it. More aparoids will be
    seen on the ground so kill them. 3 enemy ships will appear
    so kill them. 3 more will appear so kill them. More aparoids 
    will be seen on the ground so destroy them. Destroy the 2 
    targets that are below you. You'll see another target so
    destroy it. 2 more will be seen so get rid of them. 2 enemy
    ships will appear so get rid of them. 
    
      Slippy, at this point, is going to need your immediate 
    assistance since he's being tailed. Shoot down the enemies
    that are behind him first, then kill the other enemy ships.
    3 targets will be seen and a few aparoids will be seen on 
    the bottom. Destroy them all. Kill the pair of enemy ships.
    Another pair will appear soon so kill them. Now a bunch of
    enemy ships will appear, but no biggie. Just shoot em' 
    down. Aparoids will be on the ground so shoot them. 
    
      Now you'll see 8 targets on the ground so shoot them 
    quickly. More aparoids will be on the ground so kill 
    them. Another target will be seen so kill it. 3 enemy 
    ships will be seen so kill them. Missiles will start
    chasing Falco's ship now. Shoot them down quickly,
    otherwise you're a goner. 2 aparoid ships will appear
    and a target will be seen. Destroy them all. More
    enemy ships will appear so shoot them. 
    
      More missiles will appear now from the rear, so shoot 
    down each one and don't let them near Falco's arwing. 
    A bunch of enemy ships will appear so kill them all. 
    Keep killing the many aparoid ships that you see and 
    Peppy will soon say he's finished the arwing transfer
    preparations. 
    
      Watch the cutscene.
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    BOSS FIGHT: Aparoid Spawner
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
      Get on your arwing, which Peppy dispatched. This boss
    will spawn out a lot of aparoid enemies as you destroy 
    each one. But as you destroy them, they leave bombs for
    you to collect. The bomb is the key weapon inorder to 
    defeat this boss. You have 7 minutes to defeat this 
    boss if you're playing on Bronze. On Gold, you have 
    about 2 minutes. 
    
      Soon as you get on your arwing, get the laser powerup.
    Shoot down the enemies first, collecting the bombs after 
    their destruction. When Slippy says the boss is spitting
    out bad guys, that's your chance to attack. The boss will
    open its hatch, which is its vulnerable spot. Go up to it
    and fire a bomb to damage it significantly. When Peppy says
    it's charing energy, then get out of the way because the
    boss will fire an energy beam at you. After it's done attacking,
    keep shooting down the baddies, collecting the bombs. When
    the hatch is open, go to it and fire off one. Use your brakes
    to slow your arwing down so you can have an easier time 
    targetting the bomb. On bronze, 2 bombs will defeat this boss.
    If you're playing on a latter difficulty, then keep repeating
    the strategy of deploying bombs until this boss falls. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    MISSION COMPLETE.
    
      Watch the cutscene.   
    
      Your score will be resulted. If you've played this level on 
    Bronze, then surely you've earned the badge. Hopefully you also
    kept your teammates alive. On the Silver difficulty, it's not 
    hard to earn the badge. But you'll have to destroy even more
    enemies than you would in Bronze. On the Gold difficulty, it's
    pretty hard to win the gold. I've never won it because it takes
    long to clear out all the enemies. And time is a very important
    key because it gives you bonus points. 
    
    -----------------------------------------------
    E)Mission 5 = Asteroid Belt: The Aparoid Menace 
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    Badge requirements:
    ------------------
    BRONZE = 400 points
    SILVER = 1000 points
    GOLD = 2100 points 
    ------------------
      
      As you move forward, you'll see debris of a Wolfen. Shoot the
    many asteroids that you see to clear some path. Avoid some of 
    the asteroids since there are many throughout the beginning of
    this level. Fly to the left and you'll see a laser powerup. Pick
    it up and you'll have twin lasers. 3 spinning aparoid enemies 
    will appear. Make sure you kill them quickly, otherwise they'll
    try ramming your arwing. More enemies will appear so shoot them,
    otherwise they'll try ramming you too. 
    
      Falco will be chased by 2 enemy ships so shoot them down. You'll
    encounter more spinning aparoid enemies so shoot them quickly. 
    3 pairs of enemy ships will appear as you move forward so shoot 
    them. Now comes a tough enemy. Falco will fly by, giving you a bomb.
    Take the bomb and fire one off at this enemy. Barrel roll to dodge
    its attacks and keep firing your laser at it until the enemy is
    destroyed.
      
      5 groups of enemy ships will appear afterwards so shoot them all. 
    Shoot whatever enemies you see as you move forward. You'll encounter
    more spinning aparoid ships so shoot them down. Now you will see
    a whole bunch of razor enemies that WILL damage your arwing if
    you don't dodge. Peppy will prompt you to barrel roll inorder to
    avoid them, so listen to what the hare says. You could try shooting
    them down, which will earn you points. 
    
      After getting out of that, a bunch of asteroid missiles will 
    rush at you so quickly destroy them or barrel roll of the way. 
    I suggest shooting down as much as you can and if you're unable
    to shoot them all, then dodge. After that, you'll see lasers 
    that are attached to meteorites. The lasers will damage you, so
    destroy the machines on the meteroites. You won't be able to 
    destroy them all since Krystal will need your immediate assistance.
    Destroy the enemies that are behind her quickly. After saving her,
    Krystal will thank you. You'll see a 1UP in front of you so pick
    it up for an extra life.
    
      Be careful on this part of the stage because there are a lot
    of meteorites here that will squash your arwing if you move 
    too quickly. Use your brakes to slow down to avoid them. When
    you come across 2 meteroites that are about to close, quickly
    hit your brakes. When the meteroites spread out, you can 
    safely fly through. 
    
      Krystal will give you a silver ring, so pick it up to restore
    some shield. Now you'll soon be entering a base. Destroy whatever
    enemies you see. Get the laser powerup that you will see in front
    of you after clearing out a bunch of enemies. Your arwing will 
    fly up the base since the door on the bottom just closed. Falco
    will need your assistance so shoot down the enemies that are 
    behind him with your hyper lasers. Shoot the other enemies that
    you see. 
    
      Now you're about to enter the base. You'll encounter an aparoid 
    robot, just like the one from Mission One. Destroy it the same way
    you did last time, by shooting at it constantly. Avoid its thick 
    laser blasts as you shoot. There are no enemies now at this point 
    as your arwing moves forward. You'll eventually encounter 2 spinning 
    aparoid enemies so kill them. Slippy will be in trouble right now, 
    so destroy the enemies that are chasing him. Collect the silver 
    ring that will appear after clearing out the enemies. 
    
      After that, now you're inside the base. Destroy most of the enemies
    that you see here. The door in front of you will close, so quickly
    turn left through a small passageway. Watch out for the walls by 
    the way. Quickly hang another left and you'll be in another part
    of the base. 
    
      Kill whatever enemies you see, especially ones on the ground. 
    Watch out for the mechanical arms, as they'll try hitting you
    depending on if you're flying your arwing high or low. Avoid them
    to the best of your ability and keep shooting down enemies. The 
    door in front of you will be closed so you'll enter through another
    small passageway. Kill the enemies you see as you move onward. After
    getting out of the passageway, a cut scene will begin. 
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Pigma
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      If you ever played Star Fox 64, then you'll notice that this 
    boss is very much similar to the boss from Area 6. Well anyways,
    Pigma has been infected by the aparoids so you'll have to destroy
    him. He has 8 steel claws, which you can't damage just yet. When
    you see one of the claws that reveals a red spot, quickly shoot 
    at it. If you don't, then Pigma will use that claw to fire missiles
    at you. After destroying it, a red claw will unveil. Quickly shoot
    this red claw until it gets destroyed. 
    
      If one of his claws start glowing, quickly move out of the way
    because he'll try to ram you with it. When you see a claw that is
    launching missiles, dodge them and quickly shoot that claw until
    it disappears. Any one of the red claws will appear, so shoot 
    whichever one you see. After destroying 2 or 3 claws, Pigma
    will start hurling meteorites at you. Dodge them and shoot at 
    the red claws. Just repeat the process until you've destroyed
    all the claws. 
    
      It's not over yet though. This time Pigma's face will be
    revealed so you'll have to aim your lasers at his face. Dodge
    the missiles that he fires at you and keep blasting his face. 
    Under the bronze difficulty, it won't take you long to defeat
    him. But in the latter difficulties, if you didn't whittle 
    his health down to zero, then Pigma will close his face. When
    ROB says he detects a massive energy, QUICKLY PERFORM BARREL 
    ROLLS because Pigma will fire a very nasty energy beam at 
    you. After he's done doing that, just repeat the tactic of
    shooting his face until Pigma is defeated. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    MISSION COMPLETE 
     
      Watch the cutscene.
    
      Your score will be resulted. If you've played this level on 
    Bronze, then surely you've earned the badge. Hopefully you also
    kept your teammates alive. On the Silver difficulty, it's not 
    hard to earn the badge. But you'll have to destroy even more
    enemies than you would in Bronze. On the Gold difficulty, it's
    not hard to win the gold. Since there will be even more enemies
    added under the gold difficulty, all you have to do is keep 
    shooting a lot of them.

    SILVER = 1000 points
    GOLD = 2300 points 
    ------------------
    
      The guage on the top left means enemy strength in the skies,
    so be wary of that. When it's nearing full, quickly hop on your
    arwing and blast down the enemies inorder to lower it. 
    
      When you begin, jump down the rock you're standing on and
    move forward. You'll see some enemies so destroy them. Pick
    up the rocket launcher one of them leaves behind after being
    destroyed. Go inside the cave. There are a bunch of enemies
    here and an aparoid spider. Beat the aparoid spider by using
    charged laser blasts and destroy the rest of the enemies 
    normally. Pick up the machine gun afterwards. Follow the
    path until you come to an area where there are a bunch
    of powerups, such as health, Hi launchers, grenades, etc.
    Except for the health, collect all the weapons. 
    
      Follow your map. Remember that the red means that it is a target. 
    You have 5 targets to destroy (under the Bronze difficulty). 
    Destroy whatever enemies that you see and take out a target using 
    charged laser blasts. Watch out for the ball enemies, as they open 
    up spikes and can hurt you. Destroy them as soon as their spikes 
    are revealed. 
    
      As soon as you destroy 2 targets at the cave that you're in,
    Slippy will need your assistance since the poor frog is being,
    yet again, chased by enemies. Exit the cave, destroying the 
    enemies that get in your way, and get on your arwing. Get to 
    Slippy and kill the enemies that are behind him. If the enemy 
    guage on the top left is atleast less than halfway filled up, 
    then just land your arwing and proceed with your main mission. 
    If the guage is nearing full, blast all the giant enemy ships 
    that you see inorder to lower the guage significantly.
    
      Back on foot, just follow your map. There should be 3 targets
    remaining. One of them can be found inside a small building so get 
    to your landmaster and ride on it. Get rid of whatever enemies that 
    get in your way and get to the next target. Do note that your landmaster 
    has auto target, so you'll be able to take out enemies from a distance.
    Destroy the enemies that are being spawned out by the hatcher first, 
    then go inside the building and destroy the target. 2 targets left. 
    
      Keep following your radar. Another target can be found outside. 
    Destroy whatever enemies get in your way, then destroy the target. 
    1 target left. 
    
      Falco will soon need your help as he is being tailed by a couple
    of enemies. Get off your landmaster and ride on your arwing. Track
    Falco down and kill the enemies that are chasing him. After saving
    him, land your arwing and get back to your mission. 
    
      Get to your landmaster and ride on it. Now use your radar to find
    the final target. Once again, kill any enemies that get in your way. 
    The final target is on top of a building, where there are also a few
    stationary turrets. Destroy the turrets and the enemies first, then
    take out the final target. MISSION COMPLETE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
      Watch the *romantic* cutscene.
    
      Your score will be resulted. If you've played this level on 
    Bronze, then surely you've earned the badge. Hopefully you also
    kept your teammates alive. On the Silver difficulty, it's not 
    hard to earn the badge. But you'll have to destroy even more
    enemies than you would in Bronze. On the Gold difficulty, it's
    real hard to win the gold. There are many enemies and it takes
    a long time to clear them all. Plus you have to defeat the level
    at a quick timing, otherwise your points will be degraded and 
    you can't earn the gold badge. I've never won it for this stage,
    but I'll keep trying until I do win it someday.

    G)Mission 7 = Corneria: War Comes Home
    --------------------------------------
    
    Badge requirements:
    ------------------
    BRONZE = 350 points
    SILVER = 800 points
    GOLD = 1600 points 
    ------------------
    
      This is a VERY HARD stage if you're playing on Gold. Infact,
    I've never ever made it through this level once under the Gold
    difficulty. But on Bronze or Silver, it's pretty simple. Your
    objective is to destroy the 6 radar jammers, which are located 
    up high. 
    
    ~*Part One*~
      --------
      Soon as you begin, pick up the sniper rifle that's in front 
    of you. The first radar jammer is right in front of you, so 
    take out your sniper rifle and aim at the jammer. When the 
    red eye opens, fire your rifle to destroy it. 5 targets left. 
    Oh and by the way, if you take too long to shoot the jammer,
    it will fire a sonic wave at you which really hurts. 
    
      Switch to your blaster and get ready to take out whatever
    enemies you see. You'll see a Hi Launcher on top of a platform,
    so go up to it, climb the stairs, destroy the enemies and 
    stationary turret, and get the launcher. Do note that there
    will be aerial enemies attacking you, but your blaster should
    be more than enough to take them out. A couple of charged shots
    will do. After getting the Hi Launcher, turn around and destroy
    the stationary turret that you see from a distance. 
    
      Make sure you are facing east now. Jump off of the platform
    you're on and go north. You'll see a 1UP nearby so pick it up
    for an extra life. Kill the enemies that come in your way. 
    
      Now just Follow your radar. You should know by now that the red 
    dots means those are your targets. Pick off any enemy threats 
    that you see, on ground or in the air. Remember that you can only
    destroy the radar jammers with your sniper rifle, so make sure
    you don't waste it. I should let you know that as you come close
    to one of the radar targets, the red dot turns into a green colour.
    That means you are near to the target. So use your radar and destroy
    more radar jammers.
    
      After destroying 2 more targets, which just leaves 3 radar jammers
    left, Krystal will be in trouble. Now this is very hard. Playing on
    foot while trying to save one of your teammates, who is flying in 
    an arwing. Take out your Hi Launcher and look up. Krystal should fly
    by above you, giving you ample opportunity to take out the enemy
    ships that are chasing her. The Hi Launcher will give you auto
    target, so all you have to do is fire. This is easier said than 
    done however, as you may not be able to take out all the enemies
    at once and Krystal might fly off out of your shooting range. But
    she'll come back to you again, so you'll have another chance to 
    shoot the enemies down. Some people can't get this right and often
    lose Krystal, which prevents them from earning the gold star token
    for this level. Do the best you can to kill the enemies. If you're 
    successful on saving her, congrats. 
    
      Now get back to destroying the last 3 radar jammers. Once again,
    follow your radar. As soon as one of the red dots turns green, it 
    means you're near the radar jammer. Destroy it using your sniper
    rifle. Destroy any enemies that get in your way, even the ones in
    the air. 
    
      After clearing out all 3 remaining targets, Peppy has sent you 
    an arwing and he will prompt you to use your radar to find it. 
    Do as he says and use your radar to get to the arwing. It should
    be flashing on your radar, so it's easily noticeable. Once you 
    get to the arwing that is on top of a building, a cutscene will
    begin. 
    
    ~*Part Two*~
      --------
      Woah, you'll find yourself riding on Wolf's Wolfen! This is very
    similar to the stage where you had to ride on Falco's arwing. You're
    once again armed with the plasma cannon, which is the most powerful
    weapon, so make good use of it. There will be those irritating targets, 
    just like on the Fichina stage, on the ground and on top of platforms.
    You have to destroy them all, as well destroying whatever enemies get
    in the Wolfen's way. The targets will appear as red dots on your radar, 
    so watch carefully. Hold down your A button to make the plasma cannon
    constantly fire. At one point, Falco will be chased by a few enemies, 
    so quickly save him. Missiles will start chasing the Wolfen soon, so 
    shoot them all down. You'll eventually make it to the end. Just keep
    blasting away all the enemies that you see and also destroy the 
    annoying targets. 
    
      Now watch the cutscene. 
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: General Pepper 
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
     Hmm.. ok. The general's flagship has been infected by 
    the aparoids and you have to stop him/it. Pepper will
    plead for you to destroy him, but Fox is reluctuant.
    Nonetheless, you'll have to. Anyways, this boss can
    be hard if you don't know what you're doing. The 
    weakspot is its head, so keep holding down the A 
    button, aiming your cannon at the head at all times. 
    
     One annoying thing about this guy is that he keeps
    moving around, making it difficult for you to shoot
    him. Keep following his movements with your plasma
    cannon and shoot the head. He'll occassionly try
    to ram the Wolfen with its wings and it does lots
    of damage in difficulties other than Bronze. He'll 
    also fire a projectile at you, but prevent him from 
    doing that by shooting the head. Keep shooting the 
    head inorder to avoid him coming near you. The boss 
    will deploy 6 laser blasters soon, so shoot all of 
    them quickly otherwise you'll endure a lot of damage. 
    After clearing them out, keep shooting his head while 
    following his movements. Next he will fire missiles at 
    you, so shoot them down quickly. Repeat the process on 
    shooting his head until the old hound pup is defeated. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    MISSION COMPLETE
    
     Watch the cutscene. 
    
      Your score will be resulted. If you've played this level on 
    Bronze, then surely you've earned the badge. Hopefully you also
    kept your teammates alive. On the Silver difficulty, it's not 
    hard to earn the badge. But you'll have to destroy even more
    enemies than you would in Bronze. On the Gold difficulty, it's
    VERY hard to win the gold. You'll have to exterminate all the 
    enemies that you see. Plus you have to defeat the level at a 
    quick timing, otherwise your points will be degraded and you 
    can't earn the gold badge. I've never won it for this stage
    and I don't know if I can ever beat it under the gold difficulty...
      
    ------------------------------------
    H)Mission 8 = Orbital Gate: Incoming
    ------------------------------------
    
    Badge requirements:
    ------------------
    BRONZE = 400 points
    SILVER = 1200 points
    GOLD = 2100 points 
    ------------------
    
      If you've played Star Fox 64, then you'll find out that this 
    stage is a lot like Sector Z. This time, there's a whole new 
    twist, although same concept. Basically all you have to do is
    destroy many of the thousands of enemy ships that you see flying
    around. 
    
    ~*Part One*~
      --------
      As you begin, fly to the laser powerup that you see in 
    front of you. Now start destroying the enemies. Slippy will 
    soon need for your assistance, as he will be tailed by enemies.
    Save the frog, then get back to destroying some more enemies. 
    If there are enemies behind you (and there definetely will be),
    just do a loop then counter attack them. After destroying enough
    enemies, Krystal will be in trouble so go save her quickly. After
    that, just spend some time shooting down as much enemies as you 
    can. You could fly at the gate's interoir or exterior to pick up 
    items such as silver rings or a 1UP. But you'll have to destroy any 
    enemy occupants that are keeping a close eye on the gate. A cutscene 
    will eventually ensue. 
    
    ~*Part Two*~
      --------
      If you found hyper lasers during part one of the mission, then
    this part will be easy. Remember on Sector Z, you had to stop
    the missiles from hitting the Great Fox? Well this is as similar
    as that. You have to stop the missiles from destroying the gate!
    
      For now, there is only one missile approaching, so get to it
    quickly by following your radar. You could continue destroying
    the enemies if you wish, since the missile is still quite a 
    distance away from hitting the gate. 3 more missiles will soon
    appear, making it 4 targets. Get to the missiles now and blast
    each one down. These missiles don't have a particular weakspot,
    you could shoot them anywhere inorder to destroy them. If Falco 
    offers his assistance on shooting down a missile himself, you
    could let him. Or you could destroy the missile he's targetting
    so you get the points. 
    
      There'll be another missile incoming, but it's far away. 4
    more missiles will be inbound, making it 5 targets. As Fox 
    complains about the numerous missiles, Wolf and his team 
    will arrive to help you! They're a BIG help since they will
    destroy 3 missiles for you. You have to destroy the remaining
    ones. Do so and another one will appear afterwards. Get to
    it quickly. 
    
      This missile has a weakspot but if you shoot it anywhere
    else other than its weak point, you won't damage it. See 
    the front part of it, the glowing part? That's where it's 
    vulnerable. Keep shooting at that part until it's destroyed.
    No more missiles will appear...for now atleast, so just 
    destroy a few enemies in the mean time. 
    
      Eventually another missile will be inbound, so get to it
    quickly. It's the same one you destroyed moments ago. Just
    keep firing at its weak point until it goes boom. Now watch
    the cutscene. 
    
    ~*Part Three*~
      ----------
      Now comes a VERY huge missile, even bigger than the ones you've
    been destroying so far. Get to this missile quickly. I suggest you
    stop whatever it is you're doing and head for immediate action. But
    ofcourse if there are enemies tailing you, you'll still have to deal
    with them. 
    
      Once you get to the missile, fly to the back of it. Fire at the
    missile's rear. Hit the brakes so that you can get in as many shots 
    on the rear as possible. After destroying the first part of the
    missile, it'll start moving even faster to the gate. It accelerates
    as it loses parts. This time the weakpoint is at the center of 
    the missile. See where it says "TARGET" in red and has a health bar?
    That's where you aim your laser blasts at. Keep shooting at that 
    area. Once again if you're being tailed, deal with those enemies 
    first before you do the missile. Once you destroy the second part
    of the missile, it'll start move even faster. 
    
      Now you have to destroy the final part of the missile. Now the 
    weakpoint is at the front. Look where it says "TARGET" in red
    with a health bar. Focus all your attacks at that part of the
    missile. After getting enough shots in, the missile will be
    destroyed. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    MISSION COMPLETE
     
     Watch the cutscene. 
    
    Your score will be resulted. If you've played this level on 
    Bronze, then surely you've earned the badge. Hopefully you also
    kept your teammates alive. On the Silver difficulty, it's not 
    hard to earn the badge. But you'll have to destroy even more
    enemies than you would in Bronze. On the Gold difficulty, it's
    not that hard to win the gold. But you'll have to keep shooting
    down as much enemies as you can. And if you're confident about
    the missiles' approaching time, you can keep destroying enemies 
    until you rack up sufficient points for the gold badge. Remember 
    that your timing on completing the level is also an important 
    factor. 
    
    --------------------------------------------------------
    I)Mission 9 = Aparoid Homeworld: Breaching the Defenses
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Badge requirements:
    ------------------
    BRONZE = 500 points
    SILVER = 1400 points
    GOLD = 2500 points 
    ------------------
      
    ~*Part One*~
      --------
      As you start out, shoot the aparoids that you see in front of
    you. Now use a charged blaster to destroy the energy orb that
    you see in front of you. Do NOT approach without destroying it,
    otherwise you'll suffer a lot of damage. Now go inside the base
    after destroying the orb. 
    
      You have to destroy 4 targets if you're playing on Bronze. On
    the latter difficulties, there will be even more targets. Once 
    you're inside the base, go left and you'll see a stationary turret.
    Destroy it with your blaster, then go down the slope. You'll 
    encounter more enemies as you go down the slope so kill them. 
    Pick up the weapons that they leave behind upon their defeat.
    Destroy the other stationary turret that you will see after
    clearing out the tank droids. 
    
      When you've made it to the ground level, you'll see a ton of 
    aparoid enemies. Take them all out one at a time, while not losing
    any momentum. You will see 2 stationary turrets as well so take 
    them out. Once you're done clearing all the enemies here, go back
    up the slope, back to where you started going down the slope. 
    
      Don't exit this base yet. Go up the slope this time. You'll
    encounter a few enemies as you move up the slope so destroy 
    them. Once you're at the top, watch out for the yellow aparoids
    because they have a nasty habit on blowing up in front of your
    face. You DON'T want that to happen, so quickly shoot down each
    one before they get in contact with you. Now take out all the
    enemies that you see here. You will find a target here but you
    can't destroy it by ordinary means, so you will have to destroy
    the shield generators first. The shield generators are past
    the target; there are 3 of them. Destroy all 3, then destroy the 
    target. 3 targets left. 
    
      From here, go forward and out the base. When you're outside, go
    a little forward and you'll spot a lot of enemies in a passageway. 
    First take care of the enemies from a distance. You could use a 
    Hi Launcher or a Sniper Rifle to pick off most of them that are 
    far away from you. Or just your blaster to deal with them all. 
    Charged shots will makes things easier for you. When you're done
    clearing the enemies, go into the passageway. Keep going forward
    and you'll see an electric orb that's blocking the entrance. Use
    charged blaster shots to get rid of it. Pick up any useful weapons
    that the enemies have left behind, then enter the base. 
    
      On your right, there is a stationary enemy that will fire energy
    balls at you, so use a charged shot to get rid of it. On your left,
    you'll see a shield generator which you have to destroy. After 
    destroying it, you'll encounter another stationary enemy on the 
    far left. Destroy it, then proceed up the slope. 
    
      More stationary enemies will be here, so be careful. Take cover
    on one of the blocks that you see to prevent enemy fire. Destroy 
    the stationary enemies first, then destroy the next shield generator
    that you see. After you're done, proceed up the slope. 
    
      After making it up, there are a few stationary enemies here as 
    well as aparoid enemies. Like before, take cover on one of the 
    blocks, then start picking off the enemies. Another target will
    be found here, but first you have to destroy the last shield
    generator. Destroy the generator, then the target. 2 targets left. 
    
      When you're done, you can leave this place. Pick up the barrier
    (which is the blue floating bubble by the way) before you exit. 
    When you're outside, head out of the passageway. Now get back to
    the area from where you first started out your level. That's where
    your landmaster and arwing is. Get on your landmaster and destroy
    the aparoid spider that you see nearby. After doing so, destroy 
    the 2 stationary turrets that you see on the entrance of the base. 
    Shoot the door of the base and it will open up. Now get off your
    landmaster and enter the base.
    
      When you're inside, you'll see 2 stationary enemies firing energy
    balls at you. Quickly starfe or roll over to avoid their fire, then
    destroy both of them. Now proceed down the slope. You'll see 2 
    aparoid spiders and a detonation object in the middle. Target your
    blaster at the detonation object and it will blow up, destroying
    the 2 aparoid spiders. Now keep moving down and pick up the barrier
    that you see. There is a stationary enemy on the top after you pick
    up the barrier, so destroy it. Proceed downward and you're at the
    ground level. There are 3 aparoid spiders here, as well as a lot 
    of aparoid enemies. Destroy the spiders with charged shots, then kill
    the other enemies. 
    
      There is a target here by the way (as seen on your radar) so destroy
    the shield generators first, then the target. Once you're done, 1 target
    left. When you're done, go back up the slope, back to where you started
    going down the slope. Now go up the next slope, up to the top. 
    
      There are a lot of aparoid enemies here and 2 enemies that will fire
    blasts at you from the ceiling. Destroy the ceiling enemies first, then
    take out the rest of the enemies here. Pick up all the goods here, 
    including a 1UP. If you need health, you can find it here on the top
    left corner. Now go up to the exit that you see in front of you. 
    
      When you're outside, you'll see a passageway similar to the previous
    one. Once again, the passageway is occupied by enemies so take them 
    all out before proceeding. There are a few stationary turrets too, 
    so make sure you get rid of them. You may have to move into the 
    passageway inorder to clear out the rest of the enemies. When you're
    done killing them all, you'll see an electric orb. Destroy it with
    charged blasts, then pick up the barrier that you see. Now enter
    the base. 
    
      As you go up the small slope, a few yellow aparoid enemies will
    ambush you. I suggest that you use one of the 3 barriers that you
    have collected so far. After using the barrier, you can move around
    and let the enemies explode into you, since they won't be damaging
    you. On your left, you'll see another shield generator in here so
    destroy it. Now move down the slope that is inside this base.
    
      You'll encounter a few aparoid spiders here and aparoid enemies
    so destroy them carefully. Use charged shots on the spiders to 
    kill them. When you're done, you'll see another shield generator
    on the top right so destroy it. Proceed down the next slope. 
    
      This is where the final target is. But first, take out the
    aparoid spiders and all the enemies that you see here. You'll
    see a detonation object on the center so shoot with a charged
    blast and you'll take out a majority of the enemies. Now destroy
    the shield generator that is on the left, and destroy the final
    target, which is on the right. 
    
    ~*Part Two*~
      --------
      ROB will holler, saying that the sensors have detected a hatcher.
    Peppy will prompt you to get to your arwing and destroy the hatchers,
    which are located under the base. Well you heard what the hare said,
    so get to your arwing. You should be able to find it on your radar. 
    Just look at the flashing indicator. By the time you get to your 
    arwing, Falco will need your help. Ride on your arwing and take
    to the skies! 
    
      Deal with Falco first, by getting rid of the enemies that are
    chasing him. There will be enemies on your rear, so you'll have
    to worry about yourself too. After helping Falco, fly under the
    base. You have to destroy the 6 targets, which are all below. 
    Your radar will even point it out for you (represented by red
    dots). There will be enemies chasing you from the rear, so deal
    with them first before taking out a target. Fly to the center,
    underneath the base, and you'll find a 1UP. Now start destroying
    the targets. If you find any laser powerups while you're at it,
    then that'll really help. But you can do it without it too.
    
      After destroying 3 hatcher targets, Slippy will be in trouble.
    Fly out of the bottom of the base and get to Slippy. Get rid
    of the enemies that are chasing him. When you're done, fly back
    underneath the base and destroy the final 3 targets. If you do
    want laser powerups, just keep shooting down enemies until one
    of them drops a laser upgrade. When you're done destroying the
    3 targets, the level is complete. 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    MISSION COMPLETE. 
    
      Watch the cutscene. 
    
      Your score will be resulted. If you've played this level on 
    Bronze, then surely you've earned the badge. Hopefully you also
    kept your teammates alive. On the Silver difficulty, it's not 
    hard to earn the badge. But you'll have to destroy even more
    enemies than you would in Bronze. On the Gold difficulty, it's 
    very difficult to win the badge. I've never won it since I keep
    on finishing the level at a much later time, which degrades my
    points. You have to destroy all the enemies, while keeping your
    combo meter at a high streak, and finishing the level quickly.

      --------
      This is it...the final level. It's also very hard if you're playing
    under the gold difficulty. As you start out, there will be a bunch of
    aparoid enemies firing like crazy at you. Barrel roll to dodge and 
    attack them back. 
    
      You'll see a series of hexagons closing up. Only certain areas will
    remain vacant to so fly through those. Pick up the laser powerup after
    flying through and blast the enemies that you see coming at you. You'll
    now enter a small passageway that has a series of slow and fast moving
    shafts. Use correct judgement and fly by them carefully. If you get hit
    by one, your arwing will suffer big damage. 
    
      After getting out of that, destroy the enemies that you will soon
    see. Slippy will be tailed by enemies so help him out quickly. After
    doing so, you'll soon encounter the annoying spinning aparoid enemies.
    They'll fire sonic waves at you so barrel roll to dodge, then destroy
    them. If you don't, they'll sneak up behind your arwing and try to 
    ram you. If that happens, keep barrel rolling until they disappear. 
    
      Destroy the stationary enemies that you will soon see. Slippy will
    fly by, giving you a silver ring, so pick it up to restore shield. 
    You'll now encounter a bunch of moving enemies that shoot thick 
    lasers at you. Barrel roll and destroy as many as you can. Watch
    out for the lines that they form as they move around because it 
    will damage you. More of those moving enemies will appear so deal
    with them just like before. 
    
      You'll be in a passageway again with the annoying moving shafts. 
    Avoid them to the best of your ability. Once you make it out, destroy
    the stationary enemies. In another passageway, obstacles from out of
    nowhere will appear so watch out. Keep flying at a steady pace and
    when the final obstacle appears, immediately use your boost to get
    out of it. If you made it out without taking any damage, congrats. 
    
      A lot of enemies will come in your range, so take out as much as 
    you can. Krystal will be in trouble soon so help her out quick.
    After doing so, focus on the rest of the enemies that you see. If
    they sneak up on you, quickly use barrel rolls to avoid them. You'll
    see a series of hexagon again so fly through the bottom since it's 
    safe to do so. 
    
      Krystal will fly by, giving you a silver ring, so pick it up. 
    Now you're in a room with barriers around. Avoid the barriers, 
    which isn't hard. When you make it out, you'll be in another room
    with more barriers. Avoid them like before and pick up the 1UP
    that you see. After Wolf says "These scum are proving to be quite
    a handful", immediately hit your brakes. You'll see why.
    
      Falco will be in trouble and saving him is difficult due to the
    large number of enemies that will soon intercept you. So after
    hitting your brakes, you'll get a chance to shoot down all the 
    enemies that are chasing Falco. After saving him one way or the
    other, deal with the other enemies. A tough enemy will appear
    so keep firing at it with your lasers. Do not use any bombs, 
    since you will need them for the Aparoid Queen. Falco will
    fly by, giving you an extra bomb. Keep shooting at the tough
    enemy until it's destroyed. 
    
      Afterwards, more enemies will appear so shoot them down. You'll
    soon see a series of hexagon and all but 4 of them will fill up.
    Fly through the top one and pick up the laser powerup for hyper
    lasers. It is EXTREMELY RECOMMENDED that you have hyper lasers
    at this point of the level. If not, there's very little chance that 
    you'll make it out alive (especially on Gold!). If you die at some 
    point, I suggest you start the level all over again. 
    
      Continue destroying enemies that you see as your arwing moves
    forward. You'll see an electrical enemy that will fire sonic 
    waves at you, so destroy it quickly. A couple of stationary
    enemies will be spotted so shoot them as well. More stationary
    enemies will be seen, as well as other enemies, so kill them. 
    Keep at it with process of killing enemies that you see. 
    
    You'll soon encounter spinning aparoids that will fire sonic waves at
    you. You will also see a series of hexagon and this time, ALL of them
    get sealed up, so you have to boost with PERFECT TIMING inorder to 
    avoid getting damaged severely. Boost at the last second when one of
    the hexagon is about to close. After making it through, a couple of
    stationary enemies will be spotted so kill them.
    
      Now comes the real hard part. And this is one of the parts where 
    you can die easily if you don't know what you're doing. There are 
    shafts spinning around this time, but at a counter clockwise movement. 
    This is where you should utilize your brakes and also use your
    boost if your timing is perfect. Do the best you can to avoid
    all the shafts until you make it to the end. If you made it out
    without any scratches, good job. 
    
      After making it out, you'll be in a room that has shafts which 
    open and close. This is the other hard part. Some of the shafts
    close off slowly and some will close off real quick. Utilize your
    brakes and boosts carefully as you get through this part. Be real
    careful and do the best you can to avoid all these annoying shafts.
    If you made it out of here without any scratches, my salutations to
    you. 
    
      Now you're at the final part. There will be a series of enemies 
    shooting energy blasts at you. Keep on barrel rolling. Don't try
    to destroy them. I don't really see the need for that. They will 
    try ramming you after they've had enough firing energy blasts at
    you. Once again, keep on barrel rolling to avoid them. Wolf will
    eventually say that he and his team will take care of the enemies
    while the Star Fox team faces off against the Queen. You'll see a 
    silver ring up in front of you soon, so pick it up while you still
    can. 
    
      Now without any further ado, it's time for the final battle! 
    
     Watch the cutscene. 
    
    ~*Part Two*~
      --------
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Aparoid Queen
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      There are three parts of the queen. I will list them individually
    and give you strategies on how to beat them. 
    
    1)This part isn't so hard. The queen will remain stationary. All
      you have to do is blast her armor away, which is at the queen's
      bottom, to reveal the weakspot. 
    
      You and your teammates are inside a huge room, with the queen
      at the center. This area gives you plenty of space and you can
      make good use of the arwing. Anyways at the start of the battle,
      the queen will spew out 4 bubbly oozes. Shoot each of the oozes,
      otherwise they'll turn into enemies. As you shoot an ooze, it 
      will turn into tiny particles. You don't have to shoot the
      oozes, but it's best if you do so.
    
      When all that's done, focus on the queen. Keep shooting at the 
      bottom part of the queen to blast all her armor away. After her
      armor is gone, a red node will be revealed, which is the weakspot.
      Get in as many shots as you can. Use your brakes so that you can
      approach the queen slowly and damage her heavily with your hyper
      lasers. 
     
      When Falco says "Watch out, everyone! He's up to something!", 
      that's your cue to immediately move out of the queen's way 
      because it will fire a maelstrom of energy at you which does
      heavy damage. Fly around for awhile and look for powerups,
      such as extra bombs or gold/silver rings. There will be enemies
      chasing you and avoiding them is difficult since they'll ram 
      you indefinetely. When you're done, get back to the queen.
    
      Ignore the oozes that she spews out. Just like before, aim at 
      the bottom of the queen and keep firing until her armor is gone. 
      Now fire at her weakspot and get in as many shots as you can. 
      Your teammates will help you by damaging her a little. When the 
      queen is about to use her maelstrom attack again, fly out of the 
      queen's way. After it's done using the attack, get back to the 
      queen and repeat the process until you've won the first stage. 
    
     Watch the cutscene, then get ready for round 2. 
    
    2) Now THIS part is very difficult. The queen has 4 heads on its
       sides and 4 pink nodes on its main body. Your job is to close 
       all the 4 nodes quickly. The problem is that if you don't 
       close them all quick, then one of the nodes will automatically
       open up and you have to repeat the process again. Keep shooting
       at all 4 nodes until they're closed. A big ugly dragon head
       will pop out. This is the queen's weakpoint, the dragon head.
       Keep shooting at it. Watch out for the green stuff it fires 
       at you. The dragon head will soon try to ram you, so quickly
       perform barrel rolls to avoid it. Keep firing at the head. 
    
       Falco will attack the queen's head and the queen will start
       lobbing explosive bombs at him and you. Your job is to protect
       Falco by shooting the bombs that get in his way. It's tricky,
       but you'll have to do this. Don't focus on the head, even if
       it's still sticking out. Let Falco get in some shots while 
       you cover him. After helping Falco out, he will give you a 
       silver ring so pick it up. The dragon head will try to ram
       you again so quickly dodge. Keep firing at the head. 
    
       Eventually the queen will seal off her head and the 4 pink 
       nodes will appear. Repeat the process by closing off all
       4 nodes until the dragon head appears. Shoot the head until
       it's over. 
    
    3) Now disembodied, the queen will just be hovering around, 
       firing unpredictable attacks at you. This might be the 
       most difficult part of the 3 because there's no telling
       which attack the queen will be using on you. She has 2
       attacks. One is a hexagon wave, which you have to fly
       through inorder to avoid damage. The second one is a
       thick energy beam, which you have to barrel roll inorder
       to avoid. 
    
       So you'll have to guess the queen basically. If she fires
       one of the 2 attacks, take appropriate measures and avoid
       whatever it is she's throwing at you. One effective 
       strategy I have found out is that as soon as you see the
       queen about to launch one of her 2 attacks, hit the 
       START button IMMEDIATELY to pause the game. Now while
       the game is paused, you'll see what attack the queen
       is about to launch at you, so that you can take the 
       appropriate action on evading that attack. It might be
       a tricky strategy, but it's almost fullproof. Atleast
       everytime I used it. Oh and I also forgot to mention
       that the queen is vulnerable anywhere. Just shoot at
       her inorder to damage her. If you have any bombs in tow,
       fire them off now, which will damage her quite well. 
       It should all be over soon. Good luck :)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    
      When you have defeated her, congratulations because you have
    beaten the STORY mode of Star Fox Assault! 
    
     Your score will be resulted. If you've played this level on 
    Bronze, then surely you've earned the badge. Hopefully you also
    kept your teammates alive. On the Silver difficulty, it's not 
    hard to earn the badge. But you'll have to destroy even more
    enemies than you would in Bronze. On the Gold difficulty, it's 
    very difficult to win the badge. I've never won it since I keep
    on finishing the level at a much later time, which degrades my
    points. Basically you have to destroy a lot of enemies. That's
    all the advice I can give you.
    
      Now watch the final cutscenes and enjoy the ending! =)

    |IX. Boss Battles|
     ================
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Oikinny
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      Being the first boss in this game, Oikinny is VERY easy. He's 
    very much similar to Andross, who was the final boss in SF64 and
    Star Fox Adventures. Anyways, Oikinny will try to slap you with 
    his right hand. Quickly shoot the node that you see then quickly
    fly your arwing up before Oikinny slaps you. He will try to slap
    you with his left hand, so shoot at the node, then fly up quick. 
    Oikinny will now unveil both of his hands, so shoot whichever hand
    you want and it will get destroyed. You'll probably see a silver 
    ring after his hand is gone, so pick it up to restore shield. 
    
      Oikinny will now try to punch you with whichever hand is 
    remaining. If you destroyed his left hand, then quickly move over
    to the left side of the screen. If right hand, quickly move over
    to the right side of the screen. Oikinny will unveil the hand 
    once again so shoot it quickly and you'll defeat him! 
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Aparoid Moth
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      Hmm.. this boss is slightly harder than the fight with Oikinny 
    was, but it's still very easy. Shoot the eyes it has on its wings
    and chip them all off with your hyper lasers. Avoid the ring 
    blasts that it fires at you. With each wing that you destroy, 
    you'll probably see a silver ring.
    
      After taking out all the wings, the aparoid will fly up to the 
    screen, firing an inbound meteor shower at you. This part might
    be tricky since you'll have to move your arwing from the raining
    meteorites, making sure not to get hit by one. The meteors drop 
    on you fast, so barrel roll away to dodge em'. 
    
      After it finishes raining meteorites at you, the aparoid will 
    reveal a pink node which is its weak point! Shoot at the pink
    node, getting as much hits as possible. Be sure to watch out 
    for the projectiles it fires at you and keep firing at the node. 
    Now it will try to spray flames on you, so fly from left to right
    inorder to dodge. 
    
      The boss will repeat its same tactic, as it goes up in the air
    and fires a meteorite shower at you. Once again, watch out for 
    those and dodge diligently. After that, it will reveal the pink
    node again so fire at it. Keep firing and you will defeat this 
    boss. 
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Giant Aparoid Spider
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      On bronze and silver, this boss is pretty easy. But on 
    gold, this boss is almost impossible to defeat. I lost my
    landmaster 7 times before defeating this guy with very 
    little health left as Fox. During the cut scene, you saw
    a pink node on top of the spider, right? That's its 
    weak spot. 
    
      As soon as the boss fight starts, go up to the spider.
    MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT GET STEPPED ON BY ONE OF ITS LEGS!
    On Bronze and Silver, it doesn't do that much damage to
    the landmaster, but on Gold, it's hell... But in any
    case, just don't get stepped on. Watch out for the multiple
    blasts that it fires at you. Barrel roll away to dodge. You 
    will see a pink node on the bottom of the boss, so shoot at 
    it until the boss falls over. QUICKLY hover to the top of 
    this beast because if you don't, then the spider will 
    recover and get back on its feet. When you're on top of it, 
    the pink node, which is its actual weak spot, will reveal
    itself. Quickly get in as many shots as you can. As soon 
    the node is covered, GET OFF of the spider because if you 
    don't, it will increase its external temperature which does 
    heavy damage if you stay on it too long. 
    
      Repeat the process. Blast the spider's bottom node first, 
    until it falls over. Hover on top of the spider, revealing
    the pink node. Fire at the node and get off of it as soon
    as the node disappears. Repeat again and you will defeat 
    this boss. 
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Star Wolf
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      Krystal is probably in trouble right now, so help her out first.
    After taking out the enemies for her, Krystal will give you her 
    thanks. After that, fly around the corner of the base and look for 
    a laser powerup. Pick it up to get twin lasers. Now concentrate on
    Star Wolf. 
    
      These guys are NOT hard. Infact, they're pathetic even if you're
    playing this on the gold difficulty. Wolf will focus his attacks 
    on you, so watch out. Leon and Panther won't do much but they will
    attack you if you come across them. Take out Wolf first. Think of
    him as a normal enemy ship, that can be destroyed easily. Wolf will
    keep flying away from your assaults, so follow him wherever he goes. 
    Don't bother using charged laser blasts, since all 3 of them can 
    dodge easily. Track down the coward and kill him. Remember to use 
    the radar. The red means they are your targets. 
    
      Concentrate on Panther next. He'll be flying around, not doing 
    much. But he will attack you if he gets the chance. Take him out
    like you did Wolf. Falco will probably ask for your assistance 
    since he'll be tailed by a couple of enemy ships. Help him out 
    first before finishing off Panther. After helping him, focus on
    Panther. 
    
      With 1 target left, Leon, track him down and dogfight him with 
    your armament. Just like Wolf and Panther, Leon should go down 
    in a snap. 
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    BOSS FIGHT: Aparoid Spawner
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
      Get on your arwing, which Peppy dispatched. This boss
    will spawn out a lot of aparoid enemies as you destroy 
    each one. But as you destroy them, they leave bombs for
    you to collect. The bomb is the key weapon inorder to 
    defeat this boss. You have 7 minutes to defeat this 
    boss if you're playing on Bronze. On Gold, you have 
    about 2 minutes. 
    
      Soon as you get on your arwing, get the laser powerup.
    Shoot down the enemies first, collecting the bombs after 
    their destruction. When Slippy says the boss is spitting
    out bad guys, that's your chance to attack. The boss will
    open its hatch, which is its vulnerable spot. Go up to it
    and fire a bomb to damage it significantly. When Peppy says
    it's charing energy, then get out of the way because the
    boss will fire an energy beam at you. After it's done attacking,
    keep shooting down the baddies, collecting the bombs. When
    the hatch is open, go to it and fire off one. Use your brakes
    to slow your arwing down so you can have an easier time 
    targetting the bomb. On bronze, 2 bombs will defeat this boss.
    If you're playing on a latter difficulty, then keep repeating
    the strategy of deploying bombs until this boss falls.
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Pigma
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      If you ever played Star Fox 64, then you'll notice that this 
    boss is very much similar to the boss from Area 6. Well anyways,
    Pigma has been infected by the aparoids so you'll have to destroy
    him. He has 8 steel claws, which you can't damage just yet. When
    you see one of the claws that reveals a red spot, quickly shoot 
    at it. If you don't, then Pigma will use that claw to fire missiles
    at you. After destroying it, a red claw will unveil. Quickly shoot
    this red claw until it gets destroyed. 
    
      If one of his claws start glowing, quickly move out of the way
    because he'll try to ram you with it. When you see a claw that is
    launching missiles, dodge them and quickly shoot that claw until
    it disappears. Any one of the red claws will appear, so shoot 
    whichever one you see. After destroying 2 or 3 claws, Pigma
    will start hurling meteorites at you. Dodge them and shoot at 
    the red claws. Just repeat the process until you've destroyed
    all the claws. 
    
      It's not over yet though. This time Pigma's face will be
    revealed so you'll have to aim your lasers at his face. Dodge
    the missiles that he fires at you and keep blasting his face. 
    Under the bronze difficulty, it won't take you long to defeat
    him. But in the latter difficulties, if you didn't whittle 
    his health down to zero, then Pigma will close his face. When
    ROB says he detects a massive energy, QUICKLY PERFORM BARREL 
    ROLLS because Pigma will fire a very nasty energy beam at 
    you. After he's done doing that, just repeat the tactic of
    shooting his face until Pigma is defeated.
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: General Pepper 
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
     Hmm.. ok. The general's flagship has been infected by 
    the aparoids and you have to stop him/it. Pepper will
    plead for you to destroy him, but Fox is reluctuant.
    Nonetheless, you'll have to. Anyways, this boss can
    be hard if you don't know what you're doing. The 
    weakspot is its head, so keep holding down the A 
    button, aiming your cannon at the head at all times. 
    
     One annoying thing about this guy is that he keeps
    moving around, making it difficult for you to shoot
    him. Keep following his movements with your plasma
    cannon and shoot the head. He'll occassionly try
    to ram the Wolfen with its wings and it does lots
    of damage in difficulties other than Bronze. He'll 
    also fire a projectile at you, but prevent him from 
    doing that by shooting the head. Keep shooting the 
    head inorder to avoid him coming near you. The boss 
    will deploy 6 laser blasters soon, so shoot all of 
    them quickly otherwise you'll endure a lot of damage. 
    After clearing them out, keep shooting his head while 
    following his movements. Next he will fire missiles at 
    you, so shoot them down quickly. Repeat the process on 
    shooting his head until the old hound pup is defeated. 
    
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
    BOSS FIGHT: Aparoid Queen
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
      There are three parts of the queen. I will list them individually
    and give you strategies on how to beat them. 
    
    1)This part isn't so hard. The queen will remain stationary. All
      you have to do is blast her armor away, which is at the queen's
      bottom, to reveal the weakspot. 
    
      You and your teammates are inside a huge room, with the queen
      at the center. This area gives you plenty of space and you can
      make good use of the arwing. Anyways at the start of the battle,
      the queen will spew out 4 bubbly oozes. Shoot each of the oozes,
      otherwise they'll turn into enemies. As you shoot an ooze, it 
      will turn into tiny particles. You don't have to shoot the
      oozes, but it's best if you do so.
    
      When all that's done, focus on the queen. Keep shooting at the 
      bottom part of the queen to blast all her armor away. After her
      armor is gone, a red node will be revealed, which is the weakspot.
      Get in as many shots as you can. Use your brakes so that you can
      approach the queen slowly and damage her heavily with your hyper
      lasers. 
     
      When Falco says "Watch out, everyone! He's up to something!", 
      that's your cue to immediately move out of the queen's way 
      because it will fire a maelstrom of energy at you which does
      heavy damage. Fly around for awhile and look for powerups,
      such as extra bombs or gold/silver rings. There will be enemies
      chasing you and avoiding them is difficult since they'll ram 
      you indefinetely. When you're done, get back to the queen.
    
      Ignore the oozes that she spews out. Just like before, aim at 
      the bottom of the queen and keep firing until her armor is gone. 
      Now fire at her weakspot and get in as many shots as you can. 
      Your teammates will help you by damaging her a little. When the 
      queen is about to use her maelstrom attack again, fly out of the 
      queen's way. After it's done using the attack, get back to the 
      queen and repeat the process until you've won the first stage. 
    
     Watch the cutscene, then get ready for round 2. 
    
    2) Now THIS part is very difficult. The queen has 4 heads on its
       sides and 4 pink nodes on its main body. Your job is to close 
       all the 4 nodes quickly. The problem is that if you don't 
       close them all quick, then one of the nodes will automatically
       open up and you have to repeat the process again. Keep shooting
       at all 4 nodes until they're closed. A big ugly dragon head
       will pop out. This is the queen's weakpoint, the dragon head.
       Keep shooting at it. Watch out for the green stuff it fires 
       at you. The dragon head will soon try to ram you, so quickly
       perform barrel rolls to avoid it. Keep firing at the head. 
    
       Falco will attack the queen's head and the queen will start
       lobbing explosive bombs at him and you. Your job is to protect
       Falco by shooting the bombs that get in his way. It's tricky,
       but you'll have to do this. Don't focus on the head, even if
       it's still sticking out. Let Falco get in some shots while 
       you cover him. After helping Falco out, he will give you a 
       silver ring so pick it up. The dragon head will try to ram
       you again so quickly dodge. Keep firing at the head. 
    
       Eventually the queen will seal off her head and the 4 pink 
       nodes will appear. Repeat the process by closing off all
       4 nodes until the dragon head appears. Shoot the head until
       it's over. 
    
    3) Now disembodied, the queen will just be hovering around, 
       firing unpredictable attacks at you. This might be the 
       most difficult part of the 3 because there's no telling
       which attack the queen will be using on you. She has 2
       attacks. One is a hexagon wave, which you have to fly
       through inorder to avoid damage. The second one is a
       thick energy beam, which you have to barrel roll inorder
       to avoid. 
    
       So you'll have to guess the queen basically. If she fires
       one of the 2 attacks, take appropriate measures and avoid
       whatever it is she's throwing at you. One effective 
       strategy I have found out is that as soon as you see the
       queen about to launch one of her 2 attacks, hit the 
       START button IMMEDIATELY to pause the game. Now while
       the game is paused, you'll see what attack the queen
       is about to launch at you, so that you can take the 
       appropriate action on evading that attack. It might be
       a tricky strategy, but it's almost fullproof. Atleast
       everytime I used it. Oh and I also forgot to mention
       that the queen is vulnerable anywhere. Just shoot at
       her inorder to damage her. If you have any bombs in tow,
       fire them off now, which will damage her quite well. 
       It should all be over soon. Good luck :)

    |X. Frequently Asked Questions|
     =============================
    
    Q: Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to change the camera so it's from
       the inside of the cockpit of the arwing. It's so much easier to blow
       stuff up that way. Do you know how?
    
    A: Unfortunately you cannot change the view to cockpit/first-person mode. 
       It's third-person view only. 
    
       I accept this only to an extent and I hold some profanities for the 
       designers of this game for not giving a first-person mode. But meh, 
       it's still easy to blow stuff up!
    
    Q: The queen's third form is so hard! How do you do it?!?
    
    A: Yeah, it IS hard. When I first played this game, I had to face the 
       queen at least 6 times (under Bronze difficulty). She's a boss like
       no other. As far as the difficulty of bosses go in Star Fox, the 
       queen is the hardest I would say. 
      
       Remember: she will use one of two attacks, and they both come at you 
       in the blink of an eye. Practice the strategy I have given: Pause the 
       game IMMEDIATELY before she attacks. It requires good timing, but once 
       you figure it out, she's cake.
