* AllThereInTheManual: This game DEMANDS you read the Manga to understand half the story. Why is Samus so clingy towards The Baby? [[spoiler: She's sterile, and can never bear a child of her own.]] At the same time the game contradicts the events of the Manga so heavily that even having read it won't give you full context of the story.

* OddballInTheSeries: Aside from being the only 3D game that is not first-person, it's also the game with the most emphasis on plot and cutscenes, as well as the first to feature Samus' melee abilities outside of the non-canon ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.

** An AllThereInTheManual example, the game itself doesn't tell you some enemy attacks can be [[CounterAttack counter-attacked]] by pressing the 1 Button. And knowing which attacks can be countered requires experimentation or a guide since the game doesn't provide button prompts.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Metroidvania}}: Severely downplayed. While the series stable of Samus getting new weapons and abilities as the game progresses is still in place, the structure of the game is linear to a point where it even surpasses ''Fusion'', as doors frequently locks behind Samus, effectively preventing any meaningful backtracking or exploration. The game first fully opens up during the PlayableEpilogue, during which all there is left to do is collecting left-over energy and missile tanks and fighting a BonusBoss.

* ATasteOfPower: You get to use Samus' Missiles, Bombs, and Power Bombs in the training section at the game's start, then are told you can't use them unless Adam says so once the game kicks off.
** Although this is played straight in the case of power bombs, you merely need to get to the first boss before bombs and missiles are unlocked again.

* SuddenlyVoiced: Samus has had grunts in the ''Prime'' series and brief taunts in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', but this is the first time she speaks full lines and engages in dialogue and monologue (Well, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xG4ei3it8B0&feature=player_embedded first time that isn't]] DummiedOut).

* BlindIdiotTranslation: As ''WebAnimation/ExtraCredits'' pointed out in their [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqFm1ei6mjo postmortem on the game]], the translation isn't incomprehensible, but it ''is'' littered with badly-rewritten artifacts of the original Japanese script, including the tell-tale use of "a certain" from implicit-subject languages like Japanese, and some of the awkward phrasing mocked under Memetic Mutation.
