* BadassAdorable: Say what anyone will, but in a very, very odd light... "Little Birdie", was this, especially considering this KillerRabbit grows up ''fast'' to become [[spoiler:Ridley]]. The hard fact that he would have eaten any who tried aside, it almost makes him huggable... ''Almost''.

** Samus is noticeably kinder, sweeter, more loyal and more naive than shown in previous games, but is still a very deadly warrior.

* BagOfSpilling[=/=]NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: DoubleSubversion. Samus retains all her upgrades from ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'', but she needs Adam's authorization to use them. In practice, it works the same way; you still need to reach certain points to use certain abilities. Oddly though, Samus arbitrarily decides to impose these restrictions on ''herself'' before ever officially teaming up with Adam.

* ContinuitySnarl: So when Samus is rendered unconscious her suit disappears? ''[[VideoGame/MetroidFusion Fusion]]'' would like to disagree with you. It's even ContinuitySnarl within the game itself, as Samus's suit is cleaned near the beginning of the game while she's unconscious. [[spoiler: This becomes a ''very significant'' plot point.]]

** [[spoiler:In retrospect, Anthony provoked Ridley to save Samus, so it's likely that Ridley was annoyed and decided to off him before he got back to Samus.]]



* RecurringBoss[=/=]CowardlyBoss: One miniboss appears ''four times'', retreating after all but the last battle. Then he appears twice more, in the epilogue. [[spoiler:Ridley tried to be this, but the Queen Metroid had other plans, though the first fight against Ridley is his adolescent stage, where the characters are unaware it's actually Ridley]].

* [[VoiceActors Voice Acting]]: The second game in the series to use it, after ''Prime 3''. ''Prime'' had it in the form of grunts and such. ''Prime 2'' had some full voice acting. ''Prime 3'' used it heavily, and ''Other M'' finally made Samus speak audibly.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Sort of. The subplot involving [[spoiler:the Deleter]] is significant for a large portion of the game, but is [[AbortedArc effectively dropped]] after [[spoiler:he attacks MB. However, observant players will notice James's dead body laying in the same room where Samus left him, implying that he was the traitor. There is, however, no indication that Samus realizes this.]]

** Given her backstory, Samus herself easily qualifies. She also gets bonus points for having actually destroyed [[MetroidPrime a few]] [[VideoGame/SuperMetroid worlds]].

* DeathGlare: The KillerRabbit mentioned below gives Samus one when you first meet it. [[spoiler:Given [[TheReveal who he is]], it would be OutOfCharacter to do anything less]].

* GlassCannon: Most bosses, who usually don't take many hits to go down, but can kill Samus with just a few of their own.

to:

* GravityMaster: [[spoiler:Nightmare. Doesn't do much on the second boss fight against it though, as the Gravity Feature is activated by this point.]]
* GravityScrew: The rooms leading up to [[spoiler:Nightmare]]. They have Samus go upside down, and also increase the gravity so that jumps are heavier and more sluggish. Once the Gravity Feature has been activated, you backtrack to this place and play it normally without the gravity effects.



* HoldingBackThePhlebotinum

to:

* HoldingBackThePhlebotinumHoldingBackThePhlebotinum: Thanks to the authorisation system. This lessens throughout the game as more and more abilities are authorised, but Samus is still holding back way more than is necessary.



* {{Interquel}}: Other M is one between SuperMetroid and MetroidFusion.



* ItemGet: Averted unlike every other Metroid game ever. There is no fanfare for any items you are authorised, nor is there one for the two items you actually pick up.

* NintendoHard: This is basically NinjaGaiden wrapped around a Metroid game. It'll take you a few tries to defeat some of the earlier enemies as you learn the combat mechanics, and even then, this game requires a lot more skill and attention than the other Metroid games.
