* Brinstar has numerous man-eating things in the floor and ceiling that trap you and deplete your health. One area has a floor and ceiling comprising nothing but these creatures.

* There's something very ominous and eerie about the temple area of Lower Norfair, made worse by the chanting in the background music.

* Arguably, the scariest encounter with the SA-X is in Sector 2. After defeating Yakuza and turning on the auxiliary power in the Main Core, you find yourself back in Sector 2 (TRO) to investigate the vegetation that is interfering with the main core room. So you come in and you hear the SA-X's footsteps along with the music, so you think to yourself "Okay, let's just chill here for now and wait for the SA-X to leave". You think the coast is clear, so you shoot the block to go down, then the player soon realizes, they just ''landed right in front of the SA-X''. The escape is very intense, the player has to be really quick with their ice missiles and they just have to run like hell at this point.

-->'''Adam Computer:''' I have learned the identity of our mystery saboteur- Samus, it's an X mimicking you. I have named it the SA-X. I believe the SA-X came from the capsule containing your infected suit parts. The SA-X is mimicking you at full power. ''You can't face it.'' Stay away. ''If you see it, '''just run'''''.



*** At one point, as you enter a long corridor, you hear the footsteps coming towards you from the right. The only way to survive this encounter is to dive behind a wall at the opposite end and wait. After ten or so agonizing seconds of '''TAP TAP TAP''', SA-X will reach the wall and look around for a while, then turn back to look for an exit. If you make a noise (for example, shooting or jumping), it will turn around and stare at the wall for some time, before deciding it was probably nothing. Do it again before it leaves the screen and it realizes you're there, and suddenly jumps over the wall to get at you.
** After finally getting rid of the damned thing in Sector Zero, you finally breathe a sigh of relief... just before Adam tells you there are ''more'' of them now '''hunting''' you. It doesn't factor into the game much at all, but the very ''idea'' of it is scary.

** The Omega Pirate itself is the pinnacle of these horrific experiments, having been infused with so much Phazon that it can use it to recover from damage. It is also insanely durable plus able to teleport and turn invisible. And when it does turn invisible, it's Phazon infused veins can be seen as it vanishes and in the X-Ray Visor. It's very unsettling, not to mention thinking that these were planned to be mass-produced.

* The titular Metroid Prime itself truly exemplifies the horror that Phazon itself brings. It's a Metroid so heavily mutated by Phazon that it barely resembles a Metroid anymore, resembling a GiantEnemyCrab more. The first form has an absurd amount of durability to boot. And when it dies, Prime goes all OneWingedAngel and abandons the carcass to reveal it's final form, the Essence, which only goes down to [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Phazon itself.]] Disturbingly, in both forms, Prime's face looks HUMANOID, albeit without a mouth. [[spoiler:[[FridgeHorror Must've been foreshadowing to the birth of Dark Samus.]]]]

* TheStinger ends the game, and by extension the trilogy, on an ominous note. After reminiscing about her fallen comrades, Samus leaves Elysium, heading off for more adventures.

You know, the one who wants to burn the entire Galactic Federation to the ground out of sheer hatred? [[ParanoiaFuel He has been known to successfully shadow Samus, after all]]]]...

** By extension, ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'''s Game Over screen isn't much better. Watching blood pool like that on your visor is... disturbing, to say the least.

* There's a reason the Aazelion, a creature found in ''Corruption'' on Phaaze, is this page's picture.

* There's a reason the The Aazelion, a creature found in ''Corruption'' on Phaaze, is this page's picture.the page picture for good reason. In one of the last rooms on the planet before the final boss, Samus falls down a shaft... and is suddenly ensnared by the Aazelion, which slowly drags Samus towards its mouth in an attempt to eat her. To add fuel to the nightmare, the Aazelion is one of the few creatures in the trilogy that has no records in Samus' Scan Visor; it's essentially a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere.

* The Game Over screens of ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' and ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes''. Oops, you died. For your failure, you must watch poor Samus breathe her last.
