And then option number three turned out to be nothing more than a horrible dream, with Fox waking up to find Krystal peacefully right beside him. The end. :D

(Seriously though, I can understand how it might make for some interesting drama, but thank god Command isn't actually canon).

Yah. I do like CERTAIN things the Command brought to the series (Peppy's family, allowing more interpretation for the characters, the possibility of Fox and Krystal having a child who succeeds his parents)... but the majority of it was one grand miss-step.

Fox is an idiot. Krystal became an indecisive idiot. Falco is whinnier than Slippy ever was (funnily enough, Slippy got off OK, he got himself a wife!). Katt was unrecognizable. Wolf was less of a badass. Panther became a complete moron, lacking any prior charm. Pigma and Andrew somehow survived their deaths in the previous game with no explanation... And the plot... was mixed all over the place. To name a few.

yeah that is true, i played most of it to find out if fox would ever find Krystal again and got up to the chaper where they get back together. after playing through a shed load of depressing endings, i could not be bothered to finish this chapeter.

so i guess that spells out the games faults in a way for me.
and yeah, Slippy you Playa! ;)

In fairness, the endings where her and Fox do get back together do outnumber those where they don't by at least one, so there is that.
And coupled with them ignoring Command, it seems Nintendo intend for Fox and Krystal to stay together until a new game reveals more info.

Though that said, the bad endings are... depressing. Since they all seem to hint that Fox and Krystal will end up miserable for the rest of their lives due to being apart.

yeah i hope (if they make a new game) that Fox and Krystal do get together. i remember playing the end to assault and thinking what a bad and disappointing ending it was (mainly because the two did not get together at the end) but also that it kind of left the SF team in a really bad situation. 

They had no mother ship, were indebted to the wolf team and general pepper (their souse of payment) was ill and almost dead. :P haha

I liked the ending to Assault personally. I mean sure, a lot of crap happened, but it did end on a rather happy and hopeful note in spite of all that, and most importantly, they still had each other.
Hopefully the next game will actually continue on from that point, instead of anything Command has shown.

Heck, at least Assault actually had an ending... not nine.

Did I not comment on this?? GAHHH I MEANT TO. OKAY.

THIS IS SO TRUE, for one.

For another: HOLY CRAP ... THAT NIGHT ON SAURIA SCENE ... ♥ I know you're probably hating on this for being old and all like you said, but I LOVE IT HHNNNGHHH. I actually want to make an homage picture of it ... if you don't mind ... like ... in the same pose ... with the same color scheme ... BUT ONLY IF YOU WANT ME TO/ALLOW ME TO. Because I would never steal ideas or concepts ♥ And of course I would credit this picture with the idea if you say it's okay for me to do it!! c':

And also: Ugh Fox ... y u so annoying in Command? I never even played it, but I hate the way they make him become super weird and overprotective of Krystal (at least from what I've heard) ... I mean, she's a strong lady. I know she's his gorgeous blue vixen and all and he doesn't want anything bad to happen to her, but DUDE, you gotta let us girls BREATHE! We all need space sometimes!! And freedom ... or else we get stir-crazy!! NO MATTER HOW MUCH WE LOVE YOU!! X'3 And Krystal seems to be rather free-spirited in a lot of ways, at least in my headcanon of her (which is probably different from most folks' headcanon, since I'm a girl ... x.x ) ...

... BUT ANYWAY. This made me laugh. Sadly. Especially the "this muffin may as well be a turd" part. <3

Good job, man.

Eh... everyone was pretty much an idiot in Command, so it's no surprise Fox was hit hard with it.

Although that said... him being somewhat protective DOES make some kind of sense when you think about it. I mean, both his parents are dead, and NOT via natural causes. And the previous game that happened prior to Command was Assault... in which Peppy, ROB, General Pepper, Star Wolf and large amounts of Corneria and Sauria all almost actually died (and that's without counting those that did). So for him to want to protect the one person he absolutely couldn't live without, even if it meant his own happiness... I can kinda understand it, but he still REALLY didn't think things through well enough (neither did Krystal really, although that's a whole other can of worms).

You do make a good point Cliff!!

Both of them have some baggage when it comes to losing family ... so maybe their reactions were appropriate. But still, I feel like Krystal would've been far more mature, and I feel like they would've attempted some sort of reconciliation before completely forsaking one another ... :'c

I don't know; maybe my headcanon of Krystal is so sparkly now that I just worship her XD

ACdraw Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
No, I agree. Krystal did act extremely out of character compared to the rather calm and kind persona seen previously. I mean sure, if she and Fox broke up, then that would be cause for emotions, but of the "screw you, I'm joining your arch-enemies instead" kind? And... yeah, that's actually a great point, the game doesn't really suggest there was a whole lot of talking it through, just all wangst. Though the thing that makes it really silly are a few key things. Firstly, the game presents the alternate option of her joining the Cornerian military after being given a job by Peppy, instead of StarWolf, meaning she could still keep active as a pilot without sacrificing her integrity. Second, the result of her joining StarWolf involves the public viewing her as a traitor... well, yeah, no kidding. They once tried to help takeover Lylat. Whether they're trying to turn over a new leaf (as they claimed, but it seems ultimately hard to buy) or not, people wouldn't just forget that. Thirdly, one ending reveals that Fox was planning to retire so they could start a family, which he evidently did not properly explain to her beforehand lol... Meaning all of that drama was all for nothing! I dunno... Fox and Krystal both did some very silly things in that game XD

Yeah. I think they didn't do a great job writing the character scripts either. The fact that Fox would kick Krystal out of Starfox to "ensure her safety" doesn't make sense for a number of reasons. First off, since when is Corneria a safer place to be than on the Starfox team? Corneria's defenses are as weak as a piece of wet tissue paper. The fact that a team of four mercenaries can do what an entire funded and trained military force can't do is a testament to that. And if she was emotionally crippled by the fact that she was dumped by the one person who she could have loved, would probably make her more vulnerable to an attacker. So many plotholes and stupid decisions.

I thought everyone else left on their own accord. Slippy left to be with Amanda, Peppy left to be the new general, and Falco left to start his own team, remember?

CAHunter Featured By Owner May 8, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Slippy met Amanda after SF was broken.
Peppy also became the commander when he was kicked, as Pepper is/was on his death bed by then.
And Falco's "team" was a ending. He drifted around in the story as he had no where else to go since Fox broke the team up.
Fox was just a total messup in Command. He kicked what little family he had and went into a suicidal emo mode.
I like Fox, but I would not be a good fan if I didn't point out his errors, ya know? No one is perfect, even in games xD

That's not what the game seems to think. 2:20-3:45

It didn't say that anyone was kicked from the team except for Krystal. It said that Slippy left the world of flying to be with Amanda.
Fox, you stupid idiot.

"The members of Star Fox, the heroic and famous squadron had disbanded. Each pilot was living a new life, and it would prove a difficult task to bring the former team members back together"

They were already broke up before they started their lives separate. It had been within a year since Slippy had left Star Fox (Note that he still had a possible job with his dad and/or Corneria. Just because he was thrown out of Star Fox does not mean he didn't have options like Falco/Krystal did not. They both drifted with no where else to go... :/) and met Amanda (I'm sure it's in one of his playthroughs cause Falco and Fox were talking about it. I can't just pickup the game since I sold it. Only SF game I EVER sold)

But it does not say how long before Peppy left, just that it had been a year min since the team broke up based on Slippy. And it does not note whether he wanted to or not like it did the others. But seeing as he was retired anyhow, we can assume he would not care as much.

2:49
"Brash pilot, Falco Lomabardi lived as a loner. He drifted from job to job, searching for the same thrill he felt as a member of Star Fox"

Does that sound like he wanted a disbandment? Right.
And Slippy is carefree. So it may not bother him and he obviously could give up flying easily (Esp for a woman that has him henpecked).
And you REALLY don't have to go far to see how Krystal felt.

4:03
"Unwilling or unable to face his former team, Fox has chosen to take on the entire Anglar armada"

Sounds like regret and shame to me on his part with a somewhat suicidal intention.

And just about every char you ran into (Besides Panther/Leon/enemies, etc) told Fox he was wrong and Fox admitted. Hell, even Wolf lectured him (Now, whether it was to get under his skin or it was actual concern, is left unknown. But he did betray him in that Alt storyline. Sooo!).
"So you're that type of man, eh? I'm terribly disappointed in you."-Wolf O'Donnel. One of the few times he said something truthful and wise.

Omnikrystal Featured By Owner May 6, 2013
Well, there is a chance she will, considering that they are trying to avoid making "clone" characters like Fox, Falco, and Wolf were. And since she could use her staff, that would give her an original moveset. I know that Cloud, Sephiroth, and Aang aren't nintendo characters, but wouldn't that be kind of cool if they were in it too? Oh yeah, also Sora, Naruto, Luffy, and basically everyone else in super smash flash 2. Also, I hope they put Mewtwo back in instead of Lucario. Or just put him in along with Lucario. I'd like to know what Mewtwo's final smash would be.

There's lots of adults who do that. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if it was mostly adults who do that. The only embarassing thing about that, would be if you draw badly drawn nude pics of characters that deserve more respect. Like some on deviantart who draws pictures of something that is supposed to be Krystal but between the grossly oversized breast area, sloppy pencil work, the badly drawn muzzle, and pretty much an overall embarrasing attempt at drawing her, it doesn't look like her at all.
