*** Also, after releasing Samus, the Metroid will hover around for a bit, then eventually fly away (reminiscent of it hovering around Samus at the end of Metroid II.) [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential If you shoot it, however, it immediately flies away, like a scolded child.]]

* One bit of Other M's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53PSPFE07Hw live action trailer]] shows Samus as a little girl. This would be adorable, but at the moment Kid!Samus is screaming in fright as ''Ridley swoops towards her to try and kill her.''

* ''Prime 2'' has couple in the form of logs, but one always stood out for me; a not-even-logged scan of a female Luminoth dead near a gate. The scan indicates she died of malnutrition, adding the note "She remained at her post even though she was starving to death."

** The name of the area you find her in? Path of Honor.

** During the final battle with Mother Brain, Samus is nearly killed by its penultimate attack, injured to the point where she can't even stand upright. As Mother Brain prepares to finish her off, the Giant Metroid bursts into the room and grabs it, sucking the life out of it to save its mother. It then settles onto Samus, restoring her health... at which point the NotQuiteDead Mother Brain gets up and attacks, as the metroid takes the blows. Gamers find themselves [[PlayerPunch heartbroken]] by the death of an alien jellyfish... and relieved when the resulting MamaBear moment from Samus lets them make Mother Brain pay [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome by blowing its head off of its neck.]] With [[EleventhHourSuperpower a weapon so powerful]] that Mother Brain's remains crumble to dust before your eyes.

* Even a boss gets a Tear Jerk moment. After beating the Draygon, she'll drop to the floor and her three children will mournfully bury her. Samus had inadvertantly orphaned three innocent sea creatures. NiceJobBreakingItHero.
** "Innocent"? Their siblings have tried to kill you throughout Miridia.

*** [[spoiler:This scene was recreated ''in full [=3D=] graphics complete with Samus's horrified expression'' in the introduction of ''Metroid: Other M'' as a flashback sequence. It also adds in her ''reaching out to the baby as it's mortally wounded in a futile attempt to do anything.]]

** Ghor's death is also sad, due to the fact that Samus is ''shooting away at Dark Samus in a futile attempt to save him.''

** Which leads into Gandrayda's death. Gandrayda staggers back, [[ShapeshifterSwanSong losing control of her shapeshifting]], and eventually settles into ''Samus''s form. When Dark Samus appears, Samus doesn't even try to shoot Dark Samus this time. She knows that there's absolutely ''nothing'' she can do to save Gandrayda. All Samus can do is stand there, with a fist clenched in silent fury as Gandrayda dies.

* In ''Metroid Fusion'', this troper cries when Samus proposes her plan to stop the GovernmentConspiracy from abusing the [[TheVirus X Parasites]] and the [[EvilTwin SA-X]], by ColonyDrop-ing the Biologic Space Labs. With herself still aboard.

* ''MetroidPrime 3: Corruption'' has one of the greatest ones for this Troper. It's bad enough that you're forced to kill your three fellow bounty hunters, but Rundas' fight is especially bad because of the music that plays. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nMFLquJeCc&feature=related Try to listen to it without a few tears wetting your eyes.]] I actually never heard the music the first couple of times I fought him, but when I heard the music by itself and then played the battle, I had to pause the game because of how much I was crying. His death was also tragic, as he seemed to regain his senses for a few moments and recognize Samus, but before he says anything he is impaled through his own icicles, crying out in pain, and Dark Samus comes to absorb his body.

* The final log of the GFS ''Tyr'' always gets this troper. They're damaged but manage a landing, everything's going fine, and then... "''INCOMING!!'' They're closing in fast... I need backup... ''I need backup!!''" Followed by fifteen seconds of horror as an army of Dark Splinters proceed to rip the Marines limb from limb. The true Tear Jerker comes at the end, though; as the log ends, Samus looks out at the crash site, shaking her head at the futility of their deaths, and then kneels next to Captain Exeter's body and [[DiesWideOpen closes his eyes]] through his broken visor.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCozG1RXkCI The last moments of Adam Malcovich.]] I'd sat through the darkest moment of WesternAnimation/ToyStory3, but while I'd felt fear, sadness, etc., it didn't pull hard enough. But that last conversation between Samus and Adam... It came close.

* This troper always gets saddened when he remembers the fate of Bryyo, especially the last Science Lord, who realized the damage they had done to their planet and desperately attempted to merge magic and technology and find an heir to keep the newfound technology alive and trying to keep the rest of the planet from dying...then the rest of those who practiced the old ways found him.
** This troper playd Metroid Prime 1 for the first time at the age of eleven. Learning of the fate of the Chozo made him cry, then swear vengeance for the cruel fate they really, ''really'' didn't deserve. He played ''Corruption'' four years later, and even if the reaction was more contained, he was still saddened from the fate of the Bryyonians and the Elysians. The saddest thing about those three peoples is that they were actually happy civilizations, who (especially the Chozo) had learned to live in harmony with the environment '''and''' among themselves. THEN, THAD DAMNED PHAZON CAME AND RUINED EVERYTHING! So, frying Metroid Prime at the end of the first game, and destroying [[spoiler:Phaaze]] at the end of the third felt very, ''very'' satisfying to him.
