- This article is about the main star system of the Star Fox series. For the star and namesake of the Lylat System, see Lylat (star).
The Lylat System, sometimes formatted as Lylat system, is a star system and the overall setting of the Star Fox series. It is located near the center of the Milky Way Galaxy and is named after its blue giant star, Lylat. The most habitable planet in the system is Corneria, the fourth planet of the Lylat System. The inhabitants of Corneria have since expanded and colonized most of the system, establishing industrial zones and military bases on several of the less-habitable planets.
The Lylat System is comprised of numerous planets, sectors, an asteroid belt, and even a minor black hole, all which orbit around a large middle-aged star, as well as a smaller red dwarf (although some believe it to be another planet). Many of the planets are apparently capable of supporting life.
The Lylat System is named after its main sun, Lylat. It is sometimes believed that the Lylat System is a binary star system, due to a controversy whether Solar is a star or a planet with star-like attributes. In Japanese materials, Solar is consistently portrayed as a planet, making Lylat the only star of the Lylat System.
