StarFox 64 Cheats - Nintendo 64
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
For every Venomian ship you destroy, you charge General
Route with most kills
The route that gives you the most kills is, Coneria,
Sector Y, Aquas, Zones, Macbeth, Area 6, And 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.
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
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
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.
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: 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.
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
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
Mystery Of The Secret Base: Avoiding
Sector X: Revealing Syborg
On Sector X, if take off Syborg's head you will see
a red dot that is Syborg.
