In his second form, Ridley ambushes Samus by sticking himself to a wall. After he gets blasted by Anthony, Ridley retreats by ramming himself through a wall. The next time we see his is second form is when it's stuck to a wall. He constantly rams Samus into a wall (and drags her along a wall in [[SuperSmashBros The Subspace Emissary]]), and when he's finally defeated by Samus, he escapes by fire-breathing on a wall and crashing into it.

** There was a scene in MetroidFusion in which the AI actually asks Samus if the "Adam" she's naming the AI after would "lead her into a dangerous area to die" when she tells it of her loyalty to him. The "hell run" is more or less there in order to give some sort of continuity. In order for the AI to question the loyalty from something such as that, the actual event needs to take place. Since OtherM takes place before Fusion, it's only fitting that that event would happen before Fusion.

*Except that concept art shows otherwise. Samus is described as socially inept or awkward as her parents were killed when she was only three and her childhood was largely spent being trained as a warrior among non-humans of which she was only close to one, whom she thought of as a grandfather figure. She didn't begin to live with humans again until she turned 14 when she would join the Galactic Federation and befriend Ian Malkovich, Anthony Higgs and Adam Malkovich.

Or rather, it is canon but solely within its own universe consisting of exactly 1 game. That explains why the game's story contradicts basically every single game in the franchise, plus the manga. Samus's characterisation is so wildly different because she literally isn't the woman from the other games of the franchise, and she gets so little respect from the Federation because in this universe the Phazon crisis never happened. Adam is Samus's father figure because in this universe because the Chozo apparently don't exist, and Samus feels no worries about losing the planet she was raised on because she wasn't raised there. The Power Suit disappears when she loses willpower or consciousness, because it's not the suit from Prime 3 or Fusion. She's terrified of Ridley because in this universe she hasn't defeated him four times with no emotional setbacks whatsoever. Metroids are super-invincible monsters who can threaten the universe if their weakness to ice is removed because in this universe they're not vulnerable to Missiles like in Metroid 2, or Power Bombs like in every other game in the franchise. Zebesians are mindless creatures desperately needing a leader to be coordinated because in this universe the intelligent Space Pirates of the Prime series never existed.
