''Metroid II: Return of Samus'' is an action-adventure video game, the second game in the ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' series, and the only one developed for the Nintendo Game Boy. The sixth installment in the overall series story, the game was developed and published by Nintendo in North America in November 1991, in Japan in January 1992, and in Europe in May 1992. In ''Metroid II'', the developers added round metal shoulders on Samus's Varia Suit to differentiate it from her Power Suit, since both looked similar on the Game Boy's limited greyscale display. The updated suit has since been a staple of the series, appearing in all subsequent games.

The story of ''Metroid II'' follows the protagonist and playable character Samus Aran, who is sent on a mission to exterminate the Metroid creatures from their home planet [=SR388=] before the antagonistic Space Pirates obtain and use them. On the planet, Samus encounters Metroids in different stages of their evolution cycle, ranging in forms from small jellyfish-like creatures to large, hovering, reptilian beasts.

!!This game contains examples of:
* BagOfSpilling: You start off with about 30 missiles, since they're needed to even damage the Metroids she's hunting, but everything else from the previous chronological games is lost.
* ConvectionSchmonvection: One of only two games to play it straight, the other being the original Metroid.
* GottaKillEmAll: An ever-present counter shows how many Metroids are left to kill. This becomes more disconcerting as the Metroids start to mutate, resulting in a mini-boss encounter with each one. (The 50th and final Metroid is, of course, the dreaded Queen.) [[spoiler: Ironically, the game concludes with Samus adopting a Metroid hatchling; rather than snuff out the hated race once and for all ("[[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS12E4GenesisOfTheDaleks}} Have I the right?"]]), Samus takes it under her wing and begins a peaceful climb back to the surface.]]
* LoadBearingBoss: [[spoiler:Averted; killing the Queen Metroid doesn't cause the place to collapse.]] [[spoiler:Samus destroys the planet herself later]] in ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion''.
* SoleSurvivor: [[spoiler: The baby Metroid at the end of the game.]]
* UndergroundLevel: All of the action in ''Metroid II'' takes place in the caverns of [=SR388=]. The only part of the surface the player sees is the immediate area around Samus' ship, and the hills behind it at the end of the game.
* TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon: [[spoiler: The nest of the Metroid Queen.]]
* VideoGameRemake: A dedicated fan is remaking Metroid 2, but with an engine similar to that found in Fusion and Zero Mission. Curiously enough, is named [[http://metroid2remake.blogspot.com.br/ Another Metroid 2 Remake]].
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Samus' armor also changed drastically between Metroid 1 and 2, and [[{{Retcon}} all flashbacks to the first game depict the redesigned armor]].
