* BlindIdiotTranslation: As ''WebVideo/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.

* DullSurprise: Samus during her monologues. Less so when she actually talks with the others, but still. This was deliberately done, since emotional detachment is considered {{badass}} in Japan, though it admittedly can come across as rather jarring to a Western audience.

* LostInTranslation: Sakamoto, despite barely speaking English, insisted on overseeing the English localization of his precious script. As a result a lot character was lost, such as Samus being TheStoic (considered {{Badass}} in Japanese, but in English it just makes you sound [[ShellShockedVeteran brain-damaged]]) and Adam being slightly less abusive. [[NeverASelfMadeWoman Slightly]].

** Note that this isn't her first time actually talking. She talked and even did monologues in ''Fusion''.
* SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity: The room just before [[spoiler:Ridley]] has an Accel Charge "and" an Energy Tank, both of which are blatantly easy to reach. [[SarcasmMode Not at all suspicious.]]

''Fusion'', albeit unvoiced.

* ScaryShinyGlasses: The scientist that directs the game's tutorial. [[spoiler:He turns out to be the reason Metroids exist again.]]

** The naked fetal Samus at the beginning almost seems designed to evoke memories of ''TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''.

** In this game, Samus' armor is something she spawns from a badge on her Zero Suit and maintains through concentration. Games that take place before ''and'' after ''Other M'' show otherwise.

Added DiffLines:

* NonAnswer: In the Sector Zero, when Samus asks Adam why [[spoiler:he shoots her in the back when she was about to kill a metroid]], he just replies "You can't destroy these Metroids" then changes the subject.

* HeroicBSOD: Samus, [[spoiler:upon confronting a very much alive Ridley]]. This is probably the most controversial part of the entire game, as [[spoiler:she had faced him multiple times before without breaking down]]. [[InternetBackdraft Bring it up at your own risk]]. She also happens to be going through a less severe one involving the death of the baby Metroid from ''Super'' throughout this game. [[BaseBreaker Again, touchy subject]].

* [[spoiler:JumpScare]]: At the Exam Center part of the game, there's a room with six doors. You hear a [[HellIsThatNoise strange monotonous beeping noise]] as you walk through the room. [[spoiler:Five of these have nothing in them. However, the third door has what appears to be the lifeless corpse of a Zebesian; the camera immediately cuts to a close-up of it as it falls toward Samus. Even she jumps.]]

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Defied - Samus is essentially working with Adam's unit as a private military contractor. Once she agreed to work with them, she followed Adam's orders and adheres to the mission parameters, like any other military contractor would be required to do. (see ArbitraryMissionRestriction above)

* {{Badass}}:
** Samus, Anthony and Adam.
** [[spoiler:Compare Phantoon in ''Super Metroid'' and Phantoon here, then try not to think of him as Badass.]]



* BiggerBad: [[spoiler:Queen Metroid and Phantoon]].
