Control title screen
Complete the game on any path. Return to the title screen and use the Analog-stick to move the "64" logo.

Remove targeting
Pause game play and press [R].

Use Land Master
Win a medal on Venom in normal mode to use the Land Master (anti-aircraft rotation tank) in versus mode.

Flying Land Master
Select the Land Master In versus mode, Hold [L] + [R] and the tank should fly.

Alternate title screen

Alternate ending credits
If you encounter either Bill or Katt during the game, they will appear flying with your team's Arwings at the opening of the ending credits (as you leave Venom). Katt will be behind Falco and Bill will be near Fox.

Play by Foot
Win a medal on Venom in expert mode. Falco, Fox, Peppy, or Slippy may be played on foot in Vs. mode.

Hidden art work
Complete the game in expert mode using either route to Venom. Wait until the credits end. Depending on which Venom route was taken, two different screens will appear.

Expert mode
Obtain medals on all fifteen levels by completing each level by exceeding the minimum number of hits and keeping all your wingmen alive. This will also unlock a sound test option.

Level Minimum hits
Area 6300
Sector X150
Sector Y150
Sector Z100

To play in expert mode, point the cursor at "Main Game" at the main menu and press [Analog-stick Left] or [Analog-stick Right] to change the menu item to "Expert". Here are some hints for playing in expert mode:
The enemies will be in greater numbers, and their weapons will be extremely accurate and will fire rapidly.

Be prepared to lose a wing every three or four seconds.

Because you will lose your wings often, your laser will not be easily powered up. Watch carefully for laser items.

Fox will wear sunglasses just like James McCloud.
Moving faster left or right
You can move faster left or right by performing a barrel roll while turning, except in all-range mode. It does not matter which way the barrel roll is oriented, it will work for both sides. Try using the index on the hand that is less busy. For example, if you are shooting enemies, slowing down and turning right will executing this move. It is best to use the left index, even if you need to turn right. A left barrel roll will be easier and more practical in this situation. Note: Do not use this trick if your camera angle is inside the Arwing; it will only make you hit the ground faster.

Blocking enemy fire while executing a somersault
Nothing stops you from executing a barrel roll while executing a somersault. This will never be useful in the main game, but also can be extremely useful in versus mode.

Bounce on water
When flying over water, hold [Z] or [R] then fly on the water. Instead of skimming the water as normal, you will bounce. Note: Do not try this on toxic waste, as it will damage you.

Smart bomb
Get a bomb then charge up your laser. Do not release [A]. Lock on a target and press [B]. If done correctly, the bomb will follow the target.

Temporary hyper lasers
If both of your wings are broken off while you had hyper lasers, quickly and repeatedly press [A]. You will get hyper lasers for a short amount of time. This may be done as many times as needed.

Easy bonus hits
When confronting tight groups of enemies, power up your laser, lock onto the group, blast it, and then continue rapidly shooting to deal more damage.

Extra points
Hold [Z] + [R] and hold [A] to charge your laser. You will notice that this prevents the laser from locking on an enemy. However, if you use this technique to shoot an enemy (or group of enemies) with an unlocked charged laser, you will earn one extra point.

Play unlimited point match
To extend a point match game as long as desired, begin a 3-player, 5 kill point match game. Have one player rank up to 4 points, then defeat the other two players simultaneously. If the two players are defeated at the exact same moment, the win counter will jump to 6 points, and go past the usual limit of 5 points. The match will continue until you reset the game. This trick works best if the two players to be defeated are on foot, and not in tanks or Arwings.

Rocket launcher mode controls
Also, in multi-player mode, the rocket launcher mode has the following control scheme. Press [R] to run forward, [Z] to jump, [A] to fire continuously (no charge) when held, and [B] to fire a bomb (no locking). This mode is very small, and often not visible on a mottled surface such as grass. However, you can damage very easily and can be hurt by a Land Master running you over. The "C buttons" have no use, and the Analog-stick only turns you around -- you cannot do an abrupt turn.

Land Master turn-around
The Land Master can completely turn around in multi-player mode. Hold the direction you are turning and do two barrel-rolls.

Better turns
When going through a part of a level where you need to maneuver around obstacles easily, hold [L] + [R] and turn. Note: This will also work in all-range mode.

"64" reference
For every Venomian ship you destroy, you charge General Pepper $64.

Warp zones
Asteroid field: Go almost all the way to the level. When Slippy says to charge your laser, you will see seven or eight triangles that form a circle. Go through it and then another one will appear. Go through them until you have reached the seventh one.

Sector X: When youhave reached the checkpoint in this level, you will eventually find a passage way with two directions. Take the left route. Some kind of metal with a border will appear. Shoot the metal until it opens, then go through it. Repeat this until you have opened the fourth one. Note: This will be easier if you have Bill. Additionally, this gives you a better chance to get a medal. Also, it is very difficult to shoot the gates enough before you crash into them -- use the brake for more time.

Planet Z: When you get to Planet X, stay on the left side of the level the entire time. You should go to a secret passageway on the left. When you reach the "hatches", keep shooting at them until they turn red and open. If you get all of them, you should go into hyper space and warp to Planet Z.
Route with most kills
The route that gives you the most kills is, Coneria, Sector Y, Aquas, Zones, Macbeth, Area 6, And Venom.

Route for expert difficulty setting
From Corneria, go through the warp at Meteo, then to Katina. Next, go to Sector X, then Macbeth followed by Area 6, then finally Venom.

Routes for Katt and Bill
After you defeat Andross (droid), your wing mates talk, and everyone is next to a wing you will also see one more ship. It will ether be Katt (next to Falco) or Bill (next to Fox). To see Katt, you must go in this order: Corneria, Secter Y, Aquas, Zones, Sector Z, Bolse. To see Bill, you have to be in expert mode. Go in this order: Corneria, Meato, Katina (warp from Meteo), Solar, Macbeth, Bolse.

Defeating Andross
Shoot at Andross' eyes until he has to rub them. Then shoot at his hands. If he tries to inhale you, move to the side of the screen. When he spits rocks, keep shooting them. Continue shooting his eyes and then hands and repeat this until his head explodes. If you are fighting the fake Andross, you will find a robot. Just fire a bomb to destroy it. If you are fighting the real Andross, he will turn into a brain. Chase his eyes and destroy them. After destroying both of them, the brain will chase you. When it gets close enough, somersault. If he grabbed you, keep pressing buttons to escape. If done correctly, you will now be behind him. Shoot the gray matter and repeat until he is defeated. After that, follow your father out or you will die.

Alternatively, the following tough and dangerous tactic can be used. First, start shooting the hands. They have a significant level of health -- be persistent and very fast, since they hit hard. When Andross starts the vacuum attack, get to a lower corner, hold [Z]/[R] to stay on the side, and hold the brake. If done correctly, you should barely avoid the attack. If you get sucked in, both wings and the laser power-ups will be lost, and you will also descend at a slow rate of speed. Once his hands are gone, he can only execute the suck and spit attacks. Shoot the rocks, avoid the mouth, and shoot his eyes. When he turns into the mechanical form, stay to either side of the screen. Dodge him when he charges, and shoot him when he retreats to finally defeat Andross.

When you get to Andross, destroy his hands. When he tries to vacuum you in, just fire a bomb into his mouth. He will stop and the bomb will cause smoke to shoot out his ears and nose. This does a great deal of damage.

Take this route: Corneria, Meteo Asteroid Field, Fortuna (defeat Star Wolf completely), Sector X, Titania, the Satellite section, and Venom. Get into the temple at the end of the level. Then, when the rock giant appears, rapidly fire at any part of him until parts of him start falling off. Shoot the arms first, then legs, rear, and chest. His head will start turning red. Start shooting his head until it is destroyed. Then, start shooting his chest again until he dies. When you get into the tunnel afterwards, ignore Andross' comments and get all the items while shooting anything that gets target locked. At the end of the tunnel, Andross will appear. Dodge his attacks by his hand and try to shoot them. When he starts to suck you in, shoot a bomb at him. He will stop sucking and stall. Then, start shooting his hands. The bomb will soon explode and smoke will appear from Andross' ears. While all this is happening, keep shooting his hands. Repeat this until you destroy both his hands. He will now only do suck attacks. When he is not sucking, shoot his eyes until his skin falls off. You see his mechanical skull. Do not get startled by this and continue shooting his eyes. When he charges at you, barrel roll to the opposite direction. If he charges when you are at the left, barrel roll to the right and vice versa. After some time he will be defeated and explode extremely violently. Note: If he sucks you in, you will lose both your wings and your hyper lasers, but all is not lost. If he chews you up, rapidly press [A] and you will not lose too much damage.

To fight Andross' brain form, go to all the levels at the top of the screen. You will know if it is the correct path because there will be a red line when you move to the next level. When you get to Venom, defeat Star Wolf and go to Andross. Defeat his first form, then he will turn into his brain form. You will go into all range mode. His eyes will come out and shoot at you. Destroy them. Then, get behind him and shoot him in the brownish spot in his brain. Andross will explode and try to kill you. Follow your father and get out of there.

Shoot his eye until he rubs it. This is your chance to destroy his unguarded hand.

Stopping Andross' vacuum attack
Shoot a bomb into Andross' mouth when he does his vacuum attack. If done correctly, he will stop and steam will appear from his ears.

Shoot a bomb at his mouth (not inside), then fire a few hyper lasers.

To keep Andross from sucking you in, move to one of the upper corners of the screen and repeatedly do barrel rolls (press [R] if at the upper right, or [Z] if at the upper left). This even works without breaking.

To avoid Adross' vacuum attack, do a somersault.

On Venom when you are fighting Andross, when he sucks you into his mouth keep pressing [A]. When he spits you out, your health will be the same as when he ate you.

Defeating the Corneria Boss
The easiest way to defeat the Corneria Boss (Robot) is to shoot is leg. He will trip and fall, allowing you to shoot its back.

Note: To reach the secret Boss in Corneria, when Falco says "Something's wrong with the G-diffuser system", kill all four enemies chasing him to save him. Then, destroy all the enemies on the water and go through all the tunnels.

Corneria: Extra life
Do a loop between the legs of the first boss in Corneria (the one you fight in all-range mode) to find an extra life.

Corneria: Saving Falco
Immediately after Falco says "Something's wrong with the G-Diffuser", charge your laser, lock on the enemy, and shoot. Note: You might have to charge earlier.

Corneria: Stuck Land Master
When playing in versus mode as the Land Master on Corneria, hover above a building. If you release and fall at the correct moment, you may get stuck in the building. This may require a few attempts. If done correctly, you will be able to shoot your enemies without them hitting you. This works well because it eliminates the weaknesses of the Land Master being on the ground.

Corneria City: Secret passage
Save Falco in the Corneria City mission, then go through all the tunnels on the water to find a secret passage.

Macbeth: Do more damage
As the Boss in the train says "Dang, Detach the rear vehicles?", wait until you see the two cannons (one should be shooting at the wall and the other shoot be shooting at you). In between the two cannons is a fuel tanker. Shoot a bomb at it. It should destroy both cannons and a few other cars as well.

Macbeth: Extra points
Shoot all of the poles that are normally red. When you shoot them, they will turn green. If done correctly, Peppy will tell you to shoot the switcher. When this is done, the tracks will move to a different path. You will get also get 50 bonus points.

Meteo: Warp to Katina
Near the end of Meteo, before the Boss, there are seven blue rings. When you fly through them you will start doing barrel rolls. If you can fly through all of seven of them you will warp to Katina. The rings are located in Meteo after about three minutes have passed.

Mystery Of The Secret Base: Avoiding mines and missiles
On The Mystery of the Secret Base when encountering the mine field, head to the lower right to avoid the full explosion. On Area 6, when the you encounter the large mine field, fly through it shooting the mines until some of them close to you start to blink. Then, boost out of there.

Sector X: Revealing Syborg
On Sector X, if take off Syborg's head you will see a red dot that is Syborg.

Sector X: Getting more enemies
While trying to get the medal, when you reach the point where you take a path left or right, choose the path to the right. There are more enemies on this side.

Sector Y: Extra life
When your teammates on Sector Y form a triangle, boost up and try to form a diamond to get a secret extra life.

Sector Z: Recharge
In Sector Z, fly in the rear top hatch of Great Fox, over the middle engine. You will emerge near the front lower hatch completely recharged. Also, damaged wings will instantly be repaired.

If you lose a lot of health on Sector Z, remember that you are saving Great Fox. Pull into the back hanger of Great Fox, and you will be spit out of the front hanger totally healed. Note: Do not pull into the front hanger because you will crash in to Great Fox.

Sector Z: Great Fox damaged wing in ending sequence
When you get to Sector Z, destroy five out of the six missiles. Allow the six one to hit Great Fox. It will take out the top left wing. Finish the game and Great Fox will be missing that wing in the ending sequence.

Solar: Easier medal
Kill your wingmen on Meteo so they are in full health on Solar. Your men will lose health quickly on Solar.

Solar: Mystery enemy
When Rob 64 says "location confirmed" the first time, you will see a white bird-like enemy fly up out of the planet. Note: This does not always happen all of the time.

Solar: Gold rings
Try to find rocks that blink. They hold gold rings.

Solar: Super ring
When you see the rocks, look for one that is glowing. When you shoot it, you will see a ring that has four points and is silver. There are four of them on the level.

Toxic Waste: Unlimited bombs
In the Toxic Waste planet Zones, while fighting the giant submarine, you can get unlimited bombs for your arsenal. Just shoot the bubble things he shoots out of his cannon and they will turn into bomb power-up items.

Venom: Route outside
When escaping Venom after beating Andross, if you lose sight of James McCloud follow this path: right, left, right, left, right, right.

Venom: Wing repair
If one of your wings is gone, follow this path (you must have completed Area 6 or this will not work): left, right, left, left, right, right.

Venom 2
To reach Venom 2, go to Area 6 and not Bolse. You will reach Venom 2 and challenge Starwolf's new upgraded ships.

Venom 2: Power path
After you defeat the Star Wolf gang in the labrynth of tunnels, go left, right, left, left, right, right. This will give you a bomb, hyper laser and full health.

Easy medal
When you go through the first course, for an easy medal shoot the enemies that are destroying the buildings.

Collecting medals
When trying to collect the medals for each area, you have a set number of enemy ships to shoot down in order to get the medal. You will know when you have reached that target when your score flashes and turns red. However, it is possible to defeat too many enemies and go over that limit. Your score will go back to light gray again and you will lose the medal. This can also happen by accident with the amount of points you get from defeating a Boss at the end of an area. If you are going for high scores, concentrate on the medal first, then play again. All medals successfully collected will be automatically saved and will never get deleted unless you erase the game data.

Multi-player: Near-invincibility
Begin game play as a human versus an opponent that is also human. Approach your opponent and press [Z] to jump on him or her. The only way for your opponent to hurt your character is if he or she shoots a bomb and detonates it. Shoot downwards to keep hitting him or her, and make it appear that your character is doing the splits on their head.

Multi-player: Never ending game
Start a three player point match. Let one player get four kills. This works best if done on foot, not in tanks or ships. Then, kill the other two players simultaneously. Your kill counter should jump to six, allowing you to play forever.

Practice: Star Wolf
Shoot down 100 enemies in practice mode. Star Wolf will appear, allowing you to get target practice on him.

"Star Trek"" reference
"There is a small reference to the 1979 film, Star Trek - The Motion Picture in the game. Play through the easy path up to the Sector X level. Again, play the easy path, but do not take the warp to Sector Z. When you fight the large robot Boss, it occasionally says, "Where is the creator?" and, "I must be complete," in a mechanical, monotone voice. This is a reference to the character played by Persis Khambatta in the film, in which she spoke for "V-Ger," a machine who was seeking its creator so it could join with him and become complete. This adds to the humor of Fox's response: "What's he saying?", as in the movie, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy had no idea what Khambatta's character was talking about.

Glitch: Lost wing shadow
Look at your shadow after losing either of your wings. It will still appear as though both wings are still attached.

Glitch: Shadow on mountain
If you fly through a mountain in Fortuna, your shadow will appear as if you are going over the mountain.

Glitch: Bill speaks while dead
Go to any course that Bill is found (Katina is the best place to do this trick). Try to destroy Bill, and when you do he will continue to talk even though he is dead.

Glitch: Strange ring sounds
Go to any course and get two golden rings. Pause game play just as you get the third golden ring. If done correctly, you will see your life grow and sound continue even though the game is paused.

Glitch: Strange enemy
In Corneria, five enemies will immediately join in formation at the beginning. When they are about to complete the formation, do a somersault. If done at the correct moment, you should see the enemy that chases Slippy before he turns in front of you. However, no matter how many times you shoot him, he will not die until you see him shooting Slippy.

Glitch: Extra ring
As you are going through the seven arches, there are enemies that ski over the water. Shoot them and supply rings will appear. If you get one, go to the water (down). Although it appears as if you got two rings, you will actually just get one.

Glitch: James McCloud ending
Take a route to Venom that allows you to go to Area 6. Complete Area 6 and head for Venom. Defeat Starwolf and Andross, and follow your father out of Andross's Lair. Watch Fox's team congratulate him. After Fox says "Nothing. Nothings wrong", look at the top left corner of the screen. Eventually, before the credits appear, you will see a small object flying across the screen. It is Fox's Father. You will not see this glitch if you take the easy route (Venom1).

Glitch: Teammate behavior
On the planet Corneria, take the alternate path (fly through the seven arches ) and defeat the Boss for that stage. He will say, "Who are you guys?". As soon as Fox's face is clear, do a somersault and a barrel roll. If timed correctly, your teammates should be flying around you before the "Mission Complete" message appears. Sometimes you will fly directly through Slippy. Also, as soon as Fox says "All aircraft report", your teammates disappear before reappearing in formation.

Glitch: Crash game
In multi-player mode, fly to the top of the screen and keep doing the turnaround boost repeatedly. Your ship will keep climbing and eventually reach the "ceiling" and crash the game.
