* BlackDudeDiesFirst: [[spoiler:[[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. Anthony is the only survivor of Adam's squad, and even his DisneyDeath happens after lots of other squad members are toast.]]

** An AllThereInTheManual example, the game itself doesn't tell you some enemy attacks can be 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.

** Why yes, you DO have to use [[spoiler:a power bomb]] on the [[spoiler:Queen Metroid.]] No, the game does not make you aware of the fact that they are unlocked at that point.

** Why yes, you DO have to use [[spoiler:a power bomb]] on the [[spoiler:Queen Metroid.]] No, the game does not make you aware of the fact that they are unlocked at that point. The only reason you'd attempt this is either because its the only option left or [[spoiler: you played ''Return of Samus'' and recall how to beat THAT Queen Metroid. And considering how overlooked that game is by even rabid fans...]]

* SameCharacterButDifferent: Inverted for both Samus and Adam. While neither character had been ''heavily'' characterized before, they had, at least, recieved the broad outline of characterization from chronologically-later games in the series, including the ''Prime'' trilogy and ''Fusion''. This game features them acting very differently from their generally-established characterization, and really only fits the initial description of the events involved in very BroadStrokes.

Added DiffLines:

* SequenceBreaking: Unlike other Metroid games, there is exactly ''one'' minor instance where you can do this here; an Energy Tank can be obtained earlier than usual in an area that would normally require the Speed Booster to reach in the Cryosphere by utilizing a break in an overhead Morph Ball passage and repeatedly interrupting Samus's spin jump by shooting.

''Other M'' was intended by series director Yoshio Sakamoto to be the franchise's narrative high point, with the gameplay being a modern take on the mechanics of ''VideoGame/Metroid1''. However, after release, it became [[ContestedSequel divisive at best among fans]] due to its gameplay veering away from the {{Metroidvania}} genre the franchise helped create and its narrative being viewed as poorly-written IdiotPlot (among many, ''many'' other things).
