** It's often said that Samus always loses her gears at the beginning of every games in some contrived circumstances then has to get them back. It actually happened only twice in the series: ''Metroid Prime 1'' and ''2''. Three times of you count ''Fusion'' in which she loses them before the game starts. Most of the time, her gears from previous games doesn't show up [[BagOfSpilling for no reason]].
** ''Metroid: Other M'' has several for Samus but mostly angsting over the baby Metroid and [[spoiler: her reaction to Ridley]].

** Samus herself could be interpreted negatively. It's canon that she's driven at least partially by revenge against the Space Pirates for destroying her home, and after all the destruction she's brought down on them, may have actually succeeded in exterminating them. Though her enemies are undeniably dangerous, she's attempted ''genocide'' against the Ing, X-Parasites, Metroids, and all Phazon-based life with varying degrees of success. Her only act of compassion was in sparing the infant Metroid, which she immediately left in the hands of scientists to study. Also, Metroid Prime and the X-Parasites became a threat to the galaxy after taking on her form. Make of that what you will. Not to mention her habit of, intentionally or not, destroying planets.
** Was the Metroid baby in "Super Metroid," sorry, or acting under protocol.

What makes ''Other M'' different, according to some critics, is that these other games only had maybe one or two of these problems and they were {{Downplayed Trope}}s for the most part. ''Other M'' ''had them ALL at once'' and many of them were front-and-center and treated as vital to Samus's identity and character in ways that they never had been before. This is further compounded by the ''[[Manga/{{Metroid}} Metroid manga]]'', which portrayed Samus in much the same way--but during a point in her life when she was a HotBlooded FormerTeenRebel. She's portrayed as growing up and maturing by the end of said manga, which means even some people who knew about Samus's insecure side feeling that the character regression ruined her.

** Samus' "Arrival" fanfare can count. Especially in ''Metroid Prime,'' where it's proceeded by a long, impressive cinematic, your first view of Samus' new, 3D-modeled Varia suit, and the fanfare kicks in as the camera moves in for a closeup, then pushing you into Samus' first-person view. If you've been waiting ages since ''Super Metroid" for another adventure with Samus Aran, that simple, little theme lets you know, in no uncertain terms, that asskicking is about commence.

* FandomHeresy: Criticizing ''Super Metroid''. It's unanimously considered a landmark game and a masterpiece of level design and craftsmanship by fans and critics alike, and is often considered the best game in the entire series. If you go after it, prepare to get a whoopin'.

** ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' was overshadowed at the time of its release by the hype for ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'', people didn't start acknowledging it as one of the greatest games of all time until 1996 or so.
** Metroid Fusion was originally the black sheep of the franchise, with its focus on storytelling and linearity dividing fans. Now, it's remembered more for its boss fights and interesting deviations, while ''Other M'' gets the insults.

* CompleteMonster: In the manga, Ridley, [[PlayerCharacter Samus Aran's]] ArchEnemy, the monstrous, dragon-like military commander and security chief of the Space Pirates. He is the most brutal, vicious and monstrous member of the organization. [[http://www.metroid-database.com/manga/?vid=11&cid=37#manga_top He]] is introduced attacking Samus Aran's home colony, and immediately gave orders to his men to [[RapePillageAndBurn slaughter everything in sight]] and enjoy it to the fullest. When the three-year-old little Samus tried to befriend him, Ridley [[WouldHurtAChild attempted to murder her]], killing her mother when she tried to save her daughter. After Samus's father [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificed himself to destroy Ridley's ship]], nearly killing him, Ridley survived by eating the corpse of Samus's mother to heal himself, a factr which he later uses to mock Samus. A veteran raider, Ridley has slaughtered dozens of innocent colonies and was the one responsible for annihilating the last of the benevolent Chozo race who had rescued and raised the child Samus. Driven by a relentless and mutual hatred of Samus and his desire to destroy and kill whatever he can sink his claws into, Ridley is one of the most feared beings in the universe and a {{sadist}} of the highest order.
