* Samus Aran's grand entrance in full 3D motion for the first time. Her gun ship comes in to dock, the hatch pops open and out rises the Hunter in her full glory. The [[RocketBoots jets on her calves]] blast her clean off the roof of her vessel, she spins a hundred feet through the void and lands on the Frigate ''Orpheon'' as effortless as you please, before surveying her surroundings with the calculating awareness of an alpha predator. Then there's that camera spin and zoom-in to the back of the helm... And we got a whole new Goldeneye experience for a new generation of players.

* The logs in ''Prime'' where the pirates try to make their own Morph Ball and decide to stop trying it after a few failures. Counts as [[Funny/MetroidPrime funny]], too.

* The earliest instance of [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Crowning Music of Awesome]] happens at the main menu, the theme played there is so dynamic and atmospheric it alone fills many expectations of the game, and once when people come out of the Awesome induced shock and realize that "This is just the Menu Theme!" all other expectations are pointless, and they get ready for a awesome game.

* When Meta Ridley is incapacitated by Samus, and the Chozo statues shoot him off the artifact site with energy beams. Not only is it an awesome spectacle, but Meta Ridley gets his comeuppance here for all the problems he caused for the Chozo and this planet. However, he was not quite dead...
* The other bosses in the game are incredible as well. It's '''impossible''' not to feel like a badass when taking down:

** The very best moment with the said wavebuster is when you just get it. You are probably itching to use it in a firefight, and when you do. You blast up a bunch of formerly invincible enemies.
* The logs in ''Prime'' where the pirates try to make their own Morph Ball and decide to stop trying it after a few failures. Counts as a [[Funny/MetroidPrime Funny Moment]], too.

* One for Retro and Nintendo here.'''NOBODY''' thought this game was going to work. Even levelheaded fans and critics were tearing into it before it came out, with claims that not only would it not feel like ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' but would at best be a mediocre shooter. Nowadays, it and its two sequels are ranked amongst the greatest games in history.

[[redirect:Awesome/MetroidPrimeTrilogy]]* A [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic musical]] Moment of Awesome comes in the Prime 1, when you get to the Magmoor Caverns. When those ominous male vocals first kick in and you're probably thinking "[[VideoGame/SuperMetroid Shades of Norfair]], eh?" Then the door opens into the cavern complex proper, and that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQCZIb0fbt8 familiar drumbeat kicks in...]] Goosebumps.
