* 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.

* 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).

** He's also described in Fusion as being a military genius, with Samus using the phrase "perfect military mind" in her ending monologue in Fusion. The man we see in this game is somewhat oblivious to things going on around him and [[HollywoodTactics makes a few very questionable decisions]], as well as [[spoiler:losing all but one of his squad, including himself]].

** 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.
** Neither in the manual nor the game itself does it tell you that you can use the Sense Move while in first-person view, aside from a green border around the screen before the attack connects.
