** Wave Troopers. Ice Troopers can easily be killed with [[LiterallyShatteredLives a charged shot followed by a missile]], Power Troopers can be knocked around with Super Missiles, and Plasma Troopers can easily be cut down by the Plasma Beam. However, there's no easy way to deal with Wave Troopers; stunlocking them only works if there's one of them, the Wavebuster is AwesomeButImpractical, and regular shots are very weak. On Hard, too many Wave Troopers spawning can easily screw you over during the Omega Pirate fight.

Added DiffLines:

* TierInducedScrappy: The Wave Beam is often looked down upon due to the fact that it's not very effective in combat. The Power Beam can be fired extremely quick and eventually gets armed with the strong, but relatively cheap Super Missiles, the Ice Beam can freeze most enemies in their tracks with a charged shot while a missile can finish them off, and the Plasma Beam [[InfinityPlusOneSword quite simply cuts through everything in sight]]. In contrast, the Wave Beam's base shots have a horrid fire rate, the Wavebuster eats missiles like nobody's business, and the ability of charged shots to stun only really comes in handy when there's very few enemies, leading most to relegate it to just the power switch puzzles.

* ThatOneAchievement: Hard Mode. Just wow, ''[[NintendoHard Hard Mode]]''. Even ''Metroid Prime 2: Echoes'' Hard Mode isn't as bad as Prime's. If you're competent and skilled, you'll be doing fine throughout the majority of the campaign. With quick reflexes you'll learn to dodge more, gather more energy tanks and conserve missiles. Phazon Mines is '''tough'''... but not unfair. Then you get to [[ThatOneBoss The Omega Pirate]], and the game stops challenging you consistently, and starts [[CurbStompBattle actively killing you instead]]. Even the penultimate and ultimate boss are more straightforward! He is a glutton for your precious Super Missiles. A lot of [[RandomNumberGod RNG is involved]] in killing him depending on the troopers he sends your way. If too many pirates are Wave Troopers, get ready for the pain as you slowly get overwhelmed. You can't kill them quickly. It seems like whatever you do or don't do as Omega regenerates [[ThatOneAttack summons even more troopers]]. You have to pray you get lucky in dealing with easier-to-kill Ice Troopers.

* DisappointingLastLevel: The Impact Crater that you've spent so long trying to gain access to, isn't a large area to explore, or even much to scan, its simply a room with annoying [[DemonicSpiders Fission Metroids]] to the FinalBoss. Concept artwork showed the developers had [[WombLevel far bigger original intentions for the stage]] than what was realized in the finished product, complete with a second "Evacuate immediately!" escape sequence upon [[LoadBearingBoss Prime's defeat]]. All of this was ultimately DummiedOut.

Samus' EyedScreen when a flare makes her face visible hasn't aged well.well.
** In both of its forms, Metroid Prime has a disturbingly human-like face despite otherwise being a StarfishAlien.

** The Omega Pirate is the second-to-last boss, but it can be defeated extremely quickly with Super Missiles (it dies to three after you make it vulnerable).
