Two of the game's endings make references to the F-Zero series. In the first ending, "Goodbye Fox", Falco Lombardi can be seen wearing a pair of boots that belong to F-Zero's Captain Falcon. In another ending, Fox and Falco are seen entering the "G-Zero Grand Prix", a mock up of the F-Zero Grand Prix. What's more, the two convert their fighter ships into racing vehicles, as did a character in the F-Zero games known as James McCloud, himself a tribute to James McCloud of the Star Fox games.
Octoman from the F-Zero series appears as one of the bosses in the game and a member of the Anglar Empire. His design is more reminiscent of his appearance in "F-Zero GP Legend".
