"Star Fox–do you copy? Andross used General Scales to cause Sauria to fall apart by removing the SpellStones. He posed himself as the Krazoa God to have you and Krystal find the six Krazoa Spirits. We're located his orbital space fortress Astropolis sitting within the proximity of the sun. Press on! You must neutralize Andross once and for all! Pepper out."
—General Pepper's briefing

The Siege on Astropolis

Astropolis in its new 3D retextured look in Star Fox Collection

Astropolis is Andross's orbital space fortress, from Star Fox 2. It sits within the proximity of the Lylat System's sun. From this base of operations, Andross launched a massive attack on Corneria with several Cannon Betrayer Battle Carriers and coordinated the launch of several variety of interplanetary missiles, launched from occupied planets in the Lylat System.

Appearances[]

Star Fox 2[]

Astropolis' first appearance in a game to date is in Star Fox 2. It is featured as the last level of the game, and as the location of the player's final battle with Andross. It is only accessible after all of Andross's forces elsewhere in the Lylat System have been annihilated.

Description & History[]

Ultimately, the Star Fox team pushed Andross's forces back until at last, after defeating Wolf, they were able to launch an offensive on Astropolis. During the attack, one (or a second should the first fail) of the Star Fox team members infiltrated the massive space fortress. After diving deep into the interior and making their way through Astropolis's corridors, Andross himself was found at the core of the station. After penetrating a protective armored shell and damaging Andross's core brain, the villain fled into what appeared to be a warped pocket dimension, not unlike the one from the previous game in the series. Within, he was defeated by Star Fox, Astropolis's destruction triggered with the destruction of his core brain. Quickly, the Star Fox pilot fled the space station, escaping as Astropolis continued to explode from within. Losing inertial control, Andross's space fortress plummeted towards the surface of the sun below, obliterated in a sea of fire. Victorious, the Star Fox team returned to their mothership and warped away to Corneria to celebrate the second defeat of Andross and his armada.

Star Fox Collection[]

Astropolis makes its reappearance in Star Fox Collection.

Mission 6: Astropolis, Space Station: Sneak Attack[]

Type: Pilot

Medal Score: 150 hits

Boss: Wolfen Landmaster

Astropolis is the sixth and anti-penultimate stage in Star Fox Zero. The first objective is to clear the hideout station of all transfer devices, while avoiding enemy hostility and taking to space when the Might Gauge is rising. After destroying all transfer devices, Wolf will arrive and prompt a dogfight challenge towards Fox on his Wolfen Landmaster.

Description & History[]

Astropolis features as the new last location in Star Fox Adventures, and as the location of the player's final boss battle with Andross replacing the final battle in Dinosaur Planet's orbit in the original endgame. It is only accessible after all of Andross's forces elsewhere in the Lylat System have been annihilated like in Star Fox 2.

When Fox McCloud released all six Krazoa Spirits at the Krazoa Palace, Andross absorbed the spirits and used their power to regenerate himself. Fox followed the Krazoa God into a Gateway which led back into space, who was later revealed to be Andross. After Andross stated that he now intended to destroy Sauria, Astropolis was revealed by deactivating its cloaking before warping to the Lylat Star. From this new base of operations, Andross launched a massive attack on Sauria with ten Cannon Betrayer Battle Carriers and coordinated the launch of several variety of interplanetary missiles, launched from 12 occupied planets included Corneria in the Lylat System. Ultimately, the Star Fox team pushed Andross's forces back elsewhere in the Lylat System while defending Sauria until at last, after defeating Star Wolf in rematch, Star Fox were able to launch an offensive on Astropolis at the Lylat Star.

During the attack, Fox destroyed 6 shield generator satellites and disabled a shield protecting Astropolis. Fox infiltrated the massive space fortress and met Krystal again who had entered the fortress as well. After diving deep into the interior and making his way through Astropolis's corridors, Andross himself was found at the core of the station. After penetrating a protective armored shell and damaging Andross's core brain, the villain fled into what appeared to be a warped pocket dimension, like the one on Venom's moon and not unlike the one at his power base on Venom. Within, Andross was defeated by the Star Fox leader to reclaim the Krazoa Spirits, Astropolis's destruction triggered with the destruction of his core brain as the core of the station. Quickly, Fox fled the space station, escaping as Astropolis continued to explode from within. Losing inertial control, Andross's space fortress plummeted towards the surface of the sun below, obliterated in a sea of fire. Victorious, the Star Fox team returned to their mothership Great Fox and warped away to Sauria to celebrate the second defeat of Andross, his armada, General Scales and his SharpClaw crew. It was revealed in Star Fox: Assault that Andross survived his encounter with the Star Fox Team.

  • Astropolis is the only location that didn't requires the collection of any Gold Rings to open the GateKeeper's ForceField.
    • It is where Tricky does not accompany Fox to the location.
  • Unlike locations on Sauria, the music for this area does not change when Fox fights a enemy.
