** The Ice Shriekbats in Phendrana Drifts only appear in a couple rooms and never respawn, unlike all the other normal enemies in the game.

* Foreshadowing: In the Space Pirate labs, the Metroids are the only creatures that can survive more then three Phazon infusions, with the primary side effect being unchecked aggression. The final boss is an ancient Metroid that has been horribly mutated by Phazon over the course of thousands of years.

* GenreSavvy: One of the Pirate Logs in Research Lab Aether notes that the Metroid transportation protocols also apply to sedated and dead Metroids. Unfortunately for [[ForScience the pirates]], this is pretty much as close as they get.

** Thardus, a boss made out of rock and ice, takes more damage from the Plasma Beam and no damage from the Ice Beam, even though you're not supposed to have either weapon during the fight.

to:

** Thardus, a boss made out of rock and ice, takes more damage from the Plasma Beam and no damage from the Ice Beam, even though you're not supposed to have either weapon during the fight without heavy SequenceBreaking.
** Another example involving sequence breaking: the Shadow Drone miniboss is invisible and untargettable to your regular, Scan and Thermal Visors, but ''can'' be seen with the X-Ray Visor. The catch is that the X-Ray Visor is normally accessed with Power Bombs, which you need to defeat the Shadow Drone to get in the first place, but if you somehow get a Power Bomb Expansion and use ''that'' to get the X-Ray Visor first, you can use it to see and target the miniboss, making the fight a cakewalk.
*** In another stranger example of foresight, you cannot just ignore the Shadow Drone because of this: one of the Chozo Artifacts[[note]]specifically the one from the Phazon Elite miniboss[[/note]] needs Power Bombs to access, but will only trigger if you have collected the actual Power Bomb item from the Shadow Drone
fight. You cannot cheese it with Expansions.

* ApocalypticLog: The Chozo left behind writings and lore describing their encounter with the meteor and subsequent attempts to contain it. They succeeded in containing the worst of the Phazon, but significant amounts of it escaped and started poisoning everything, including the Chozo.
** Also present in some of the Pirate Logs when talking about how thoroughly Samus trashed their [[{{Metroid}}previous operation on Zebes]]. Or how she's now on Tallon IV and tearing through their forces.

* BarrierChangeBoss: Metroid Prime, which periodically changes its weakness to one of your four beams.
** [[spoiler: Metroid Prime's second form]] is an odd example; while it's only weak to one weapon [[spoiler: [[EleventhHourSuperpower (the Hyper Beam)]]]], it is only visible in one spectrum at a time, requiring you to change which visor you're using to actually hit it.

* ContinuityNod: The first recordable log in the game (found on your first visit to the Space Pirate Frigate) mentions the events of the original Metroid, how their base on Zebes has fallen and that the Pirates are hard at work trying to revive the fallen Mother Brain. Ridley also has a new cyborg body in the game, since Samus completely mopped the floor with him in the original.

* InterfaceScrew: Electrical attacks and certain other attacks (such as the projectiles launched by the Chozo Ghosts) will create static on Samus's visor for a few moments. The Sentry Drones are notable for causing an InterfaceScrew just by being present (flavored as being designed to mess with visor technology).
** Also, steam vents in certain areas will temporarily fog up the visor.
* JumpJetPack: The Space Jump, which, unlike the 2D games, just gives Samus a second jump in midair.

The story takes place almost imminently following the events of the first ''{{VideoGame/Metroid|1}}''. Samus Aran is on the warpath. After destroying the Space Pirates' base on Zebes along with Mother Brain, Ridley and Kraid, Aran relentlessly tracks the scattered fleeing survivors across the solar system to their fallback position on the Wander-Class planet of Tallon IV. There, the Pirates have set up a secret research base, resumed Metroid cloning and are harvesting a new power for their own ends; a radiological substance called Phazon, containing nigh limitless energy potential. The Hunter must explore and battle her way through the world's lush and myriad environs, putting down Pirate operations where ever she finds them, but in searching for the origins of why her enemy chose this world to plunder, she discovers an age-old conflict which extends much further, to when her adopted people the Chozo still called this place home. Something terrible from the stars came to Tallon IV centuries ago, bearing corruptive Phazon and an enemy greater still, sleeping within the Impact Crater...
