Staff Caverns, also known as Magic Caves[1], are underground locations where Fox can learn a new ability for his staff in Star Fox Adventures. There are a total of eight Staff Caverns--six for learning a new ability and three for upgrading the Staff Energy Meter. The SharpClaw Disguise and Portal Opener are the only two Staff Upgrades that cannot be learned from a Staff Cavern.

Staff Caverns are small and very simple in design; they only consist of a small passage leading down into a symmetrical, circular room with a center platform where Fox can receive the Staff Upgrade. A body of water surround the center platform, and the surface outside from the water has Staff Energy Gems placed at random edges. The first Staff Cavern has a Fire Blaster Switch at its gate, which Fox can use Fire Blaster on and then exit back outside.
