*** When Adam is recounting the creation of the bioweapons found on the Bottle Ship, most importantly the Metroids, to Samus before he detaches Sector 0.

**''Or'' it could be like those hybrid-electric cars that recharge the battery a little when you hit the brake. Just because they're pumping energy into a system doesn't mean they can't reduce costs by getting some of it back out again.

** Put some radioactive material under the lava, problem solved. Radioactive decay produces a lot of heat.

*** Correction. Sakamoto handled the story and gameplay elements, Team Ninja brought the gameplay to life and D-Rockets handled the cutscenes and brought the story to life.

** Prime didn't happen in this storyline, so they don't have access to the Pirate logs and terminals about how difficult it is to achieve a balance between your forces not having a weakness your enemies can exploit and having a weakness that you can keep your forces in line with.

* Speaking of the armor (among other things), wouldn't it have been a really good idea for Adam to pull Samus aside at the beginning and say, "Okay, so you're working with us. What's in that suit of yours?" She tells him, he authorizes what he thinks will help (the suits, at minimum, and possibly the increased mobility stuff), tells her what he's not going to authorize, and then: "This other stuff... if you find a need to use it, give me a call." It's kind of horrifying that he lets her get to a battle with a lava monster before ''he'' has to tell her, unsolicited, to turn it on. Concentration makes it a little less terrible, but still...

*** This seems to be an issue I see frequently. A Joint Mission is not simply a mission where you work with others. It's a mission where you work with a team appointed under a single commanding officer towards a singular goal. Prime 3 has Samus assist the Galactic Federation as a hired gun alongside other Bounty Hunters with separate goals.

*** Simply working beside other troops does not a Joint Mission make.

** The only canon depiction of Samus's height is 6'3" in her suit as noted in Metroid 2. The Prima Guide later takes this and states that Samus is 6'3" out of her suit for Super but Prima is a non-canon source. Outside of this, Anthony is supposed to be noticeably taller than Samus, however, D-Rockets, the team who handled the cutscenes, made a mistake on said cutscene by making Anthony multiple feet taller than Samus. This mistake can possibly be attributed to the concept art where a young Samus is shown standing next to Anthony though it's noted by Sakamoto that the height difference in said concept is "Overkill".

*** If you recall, Sector 0 was never opened prior to Adam entering. The reason the metroid that Samus encountered was not immune to ice was because it was actually born from the control group, otherwise known as the unaltered Queen. Which neither Samus nor Adam had encountered at that point.
