Added DiffLines:

*** It doesn't help that, similarly to Metroid and Metroid: Zero Mission, II also got remade. However, in addition to the fan remake in 2016, it also got remade in 2017, both games not only fixing many of the issues with the original but adding a lot of new content that wasn't in the first game.

* JustForFun/XMeetsY: Gameplay-wise, Metroid was initially described as a combination of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' platforming and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda's'' exploration and item-collection.

** Sylux's backstory states that it has a deep-seated hatred of the Galactic Federation, hating Samus by proxy. That's pretty much all we ever find out. [[spoiler:Though its ship is possibly seen in TheStinger for ''Corruption'', so there's a chance of developing this.]]

** Almost nothing is known for certain about Sylux, except that it hates both Samus and the Federation. Fertile ground for the trees right there, including that it is female.

** Is Adam a truly good, noble man who cares about Samus or an abusive {{Jerkass}} who actively tries to demean her?

* AnticlimaxBoss: The [[spoiler:Omega Metroid]] in ''Fusion''; not only is it nowhere near the hardest boss in the game, it isn't even as hard as its previous appearances in ''Metroid II''. However, it's arguable whether it counts as the final boss; most fans believe that the SA-X is the true final boss, and [[spoiler:the Omega Metroid is just designed to be one last challenge before you escape the station]].

* BadassDecay: Samus, post-''Other M''. She went from being an awesome space bounty hunter who could stand in front of [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] and come out no worse for the wear mentally to literally turning into a child and having a traumatic flashback after seeing Ridley's clone, whose predecessor she's stood up against multiple times and did actually manage to kill in [[VideoGame/SuperMetroid the previous game]] without having a HeroicBSOD.

Partially mitigated if one considers that Sakamoto hadn't incorporated ''Prime'''s events, meaning Samus only fought him twice by that logic and expected him to be ''dead''. Still not an easy moment to watch, even with that in mind.



** Adam Malkovich, in large part due to being the face of the controversial authorization mechanic, Samus' questionable role model, and for [[spoiler:shooting Samus in the back with a Metroid hovering right above]].

** Adam Malkovich, in large part due to being the face of the controversial authorization mechanic, Samus' questionable role model, and for [[spoiler:shooting Samus in the back with a Metroid hovering right above]]. That said, some feel like he was given a raw deal with ''Other M'' and his character in the manga is more balanced, interesting, and friendly with Samus. That [[VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy other canon]] was ignored in that game leaves some room for redemption.

* HilariousInHindsight: You know all those people [[IAmNotShazam who've mistakenly called Samus "Metroid"?]] With the {{Retcon}} that the word is a Chozo word meaning "ultimate warrior", they're technically correct.

** After the [[BrokenBase base-breaking]] insanity of ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'', many would say that RetroStudios should handle the series from here on out, due to the critical and commercial acclaim of the ''MetroidPrime'' trilogy...all while forgetting that ''Prime 2'' [[ContestedSequel had its own detractors]].

* WinBackTheCrowd: There is no doubt 2016 was by and large seen by fans as the culmination of what can be considered a dark age for the franchise. After six years of no new installments in the series following the divisive and underperforming ''Other M'', ''Metroid Prime: Federation Force'' was released to disastrous reception and low sales, and a consensus amongst fans that, though it might have attempted, it ultimately failed to undo the damage done by ''Other M''. Around the same time, Nintendo issued the controversial DMCA takedown of ''Another Metroid 2 Remake'', and then largely failed to acknowledge, much less celebrate the series' 30th Anniversary. With Nintendo's E3 2017 event announcing ''Metroid Prime 4'', their own remake of ''Metroid 2'' (which includes a soundtrack disc in retail versions), and two Metroid-themed amiibo, fan optimism has undergone a great and rapid revival.
