Though Samus herself has never appeared on television (except in commercials), Mother Brain was featured as the BigBad of the Nintendo-themed animated series ''[[WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster Captain N: The Game Master]]''. (Reportedly, the production staff actually ''didn't know about Samus''); the comic book adaptation introduced her as the SixthRanger[=/=]TheLancer. A live-action feature film based on the franchise was optioned after ''Metroid Prime'' was successful, with ''John Woo'' of all people rumored to direct, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen but appears to have lapsed]].

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: In ''Fusion'' Samus has to have her suit surgically removed and there is absolutely no scarring. There also appears to be no visible changes caused by the infusion of Metroid DNA (or Chozo DNA for that matter). Not so in ''Corruption'', Samus's phazon corruption causes visible breakdowns on her face and she vomits at one point.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: The ''Nintendo Power'' comic adaptation of ''Prime'' states at the end that Samus was only on Tallon IV for around 10 hours, which is around the time that a skilled player can beat the game.



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: When Samus eradicated the Metroids on [=SR388=], her intention may have been to stop the Metroids from being used as a biological weapon ever again, but by removing an apex predator from the planet's ecosystem, the X Parasites that the Metroids preyed on were able to multiply unchecked. This sets up the events of ''Fusion'', where the parasites become a potentially greater threat than the Metroids.

** Had the Federation not decided to put the bodies [[spoiler:of Nightmare and the Metroid-drained Clone!Ridley]] into cold storage of the BSL Space Station, the X wouldn't have caused nearly so much damage.

** In ''Other M'', there are melee cyborg space pirates with mind control units [[spoiler:controlled by the Federation]], making them a near literal example.

The next game, ''[[VideoGame/MetroidOtherM Other M]]'' (Wii), was released at the end of August 2010, and combines elements from both the 2D games and the ''Prime'' series. It was worked on by the unusual combination of the in-house team responsible for the ''Metroid'' series and none other than [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive Team]] [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Ninja]]. [[http://wii.ign.com/dor/objects/14354733/metroid-other-m/videos/metroid_trl_e3_otherm_060209.html Trailer can be seen here.]] It [[{{Interquel}} takes place between]] ''Super Metroid'' and ''Metroid Fusion'', making it the only game since ''Fusion'' to take place after ''Super''.
