Star Fox Adventures

How do you beat Andross at the very end of the game?

Games Guru: In Star Fox Adventures, Andross takes three forms. The first is a bejeweled monster with three vulnerable spots—one over each eye and one on his forehead. Dodge his attacks and shoot those three spots. This will cause Andross to try to hit you with his enormous hands. Shoot his hands.

During his second attack, Andross will try to inhale you. Hit your brakes and do flips to avoid this. When Andross turns to reveal his gems again, this time shoot them with homing projectiles. Once Andross starts trying to inhale you again, Falco will appear to give you some smart bombs. Shoot the smart bombs at Andross as he inhales debris.

Smart bomb-blasted and angry, Andross will now show you his brain. Shoot it. Kill it and you win the game.

    HOW DO YOU BEAT THE TEST OF FEAR!!!The people who made this game made it waaaaaaay to hard!Can the turbo button help?

  5. The clue of the Test of fear is, to calm down even before u start.
    you have to realize that its just an illusion, try not to look at the pictures(first some raptors jumping at you, then a cloaked general scales in XXL trying to eat ya^^).
    And it helps if you don´t even START moving the controler to hard.
    The red stick wont move that heavily when you don´t.

  6. the test of fear is soooo hard but if u just stay calm a use the control stick gently u may beat it.i havent though…welll if u have a response please write back.=)

    • I know it sounds wierd, but you have to mute your TV and sing a song while you do the Test of Fear! It relaxes you and takes your mind off of the this running around and jumping at you. It only took me a few tries after this.

      Also, you must relize that the red bar veers off to the side during the “scary” parts. So be ready before things start jumping at you, and keep control.

      • that was exactly the same thing I did!! i muted the TV and tried so hard, but i couldn’t beat it. i want Action Replay, but then a couple days later, i muted the TV literally COVERED THE TV except for the bar, and beat it

  7. the test was so hard i through the controller against the wall

    to mdog use 1 hand to steer the other take a spoon and rub it on the A button.

  11. To beat the test of fear, you need to remain calm and relaxed. I had to try it about ten times because I would get so nervous but once I realized the trick,it was a piece of cake .

  12. its the part were you shoot the red circles

  13. i cant get past dragon rock

  14. can'tbeatthisgame // February 24, 2009 at 8:31 am // Reply

    i just got to the dark ice mines and i need that elephant sort of dudes help. he says he’s hungry and i already got him one alpine root. where are the others?

  15. uh,the test of strength is like the easiest one…I beat it in like 3 seconds,whats so hard about tapping the a button really fast.Oh and Andross is in this game(Starfoox adventures),AND U WOULD CLEARLY know this if u played and beat the game,cause he’s kinda hard to ignore,considering he,s the final boss in the game,and he’s…big.He used the Spirits to revive himself,and he aparently easnt to dead from starfox 64,or he wouldnt of showed up in this game,but dont get me wrong star fox 64 was an awsome game,and far better than this one,but to get tecnical,maybe he didnt die in 64,but he almost did and he had to udse the spirits to revive himself to full strength.And if you wanna alk about a hard game,try beating star wolf,on the 64 game,just befor you face Andross on the final ending..thats hard

  16. Andross died in starfox 64. He comes back in starfox assault

  17. for those of you who have not beaten the test of fear,get a spoon and rub it across the A button.I beat muscle foot like this yesterday.

  18. I only have Star Fox 64.

    i beat the whole game this night!=D

  22. Hey! everyone, star fox adventures does NOT involve Andross, that’s Starfox 64

  23. The game way too easy.

  24. i can evan go to agress im at a low level

  25. I can’t save after beating Andross. What is up with that? The game otherwise is a little hard. One gmae site gave ti a rating of 8.3. I give it a 7.9 because of the difficulty and the confusing strategies.


  27. Rating out of 10, I give it a 8 out of 10.

  28. does anyone even play this game anymore its too easy

  29. I played it at my friends but we can’t defeat the part whereyou go through the maze. that part is right after you defeat three monsters on three ledges.

  30. Is it A good game?

  31. I’ve beaten andross twice but the game won’t save for me so I keep having to battle him again. What’s going on?

  32. I cant avoid being sucked in by him its so hard.

  33. i cant get past the test the test of strength in the light foot village

    • i couldn’t either but then i figured out a good trick.
      step 1: get a spoon or other round, smooth object.(though a spoon seems to work best)
      step 2: start the lightfoot test of strength
      step 3: move the spoon repeatedly over the A button
      that made it a WHOLE lot easier for me
      hope it helps you too! 😀

  34. I keep getting scared when I do the Test of Fear. I feel like I’m Foz and I gotta overcome this as well as him.

  35. How do you beat test of strength? I cant!!

  36. The test of fear is sooooooooo haaaaarrd!!!!!!!

  37. How do you beat rhe contest of strenth
