* ''Corruption'' also features a sort of Fridge Nightmare Fuel. In the first one, Phazon damaged you until you had the Phazon suit. Even then, the stuff in the impact crater still damaged you. In ''Echoes'' there was no protection against it, it would always damage you. But after you get the PED suit, Phazon can ''heal'' you. It is some of the most toxic and corrosive stuff in the history of the series, and it's '''healing''' you. That's how corrupted you are.

To drive the point home, the energy refills change after you get the PED suit. Before you get the suit, scan data shows that the energy pick ups refill X amount of energy. After you get the PED suit, they now change into phazon energy and scanning them says you'll get X amount of phazon back as if you're feeding off the corrupted stuff to stay alive.

* The Game Over screens of ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' and ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes''. Oops, you died. For your failure, you must watch poor Samus breathe her last. And in 2, you have to watch her heart come to a halt.
** 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.

halt. Should you die in Morph Ball form in the the first ''Prime'' game, everything comes to a halt as Samus' ball form creates a ''massive explosion'' before the screen shuts down as normal (it's the same animation used when deploying Power Bombs). The other games just shows the Morph Ball "explode" by breaking up into pieces in a way that mimics Samus' death in the very first game. 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. No matter which game you play, Samus will always let out a bone chilling scream when she is killed.

* Just the X-Parasites in general. A normal human being would have no protection against them at all, and you wouldn't even know if anyone or anything was infected until it was too late.

* On that note, the environmental design was wonderfully creepy, especially since this was on Gameboy. The game starts on the surface, and the tension slowly rises as Samus uncovers an abandoned Chozo weapon factory deep beneath the earth, which itself is above the Nest. It's best symbolized by the ice beam pick up, found in the lair of the Metroids, with a partially destroyed Chozo statue showing that whatever happened here, it didn't end well for the Ancients.

* The goddamn ''Crashed Ship'', man! Until you defeat Phantoon (itself an exceedingly unnerving opponent) and the power comes back on, you are literally traversing a haunted wreck! There's no scientific explanation for it either, as far as you know you're simply being assaulted by ''ghosts!''

ghosts. No other enemies either, just ghosts. And the ghosts? They're clusters of skulls fused together, waiting in invisibility and periodically attempting to ''appear into you'' then disappear. Good night!

* The music from ''Fusion''. It's like the soundtracks from ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' and ''VideoGame/SilentHill'' got thrown into a blender. A good two-thirds of it is very subdued, tense, and ominous. Especially the arranged version.

**Well, it was probably them burying her, but it could be both.

* 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.
