* HellIsThatNoise: "Skreee!"
** Ridley's screech in ''Fusion'' and ''Zero Mission'' is like listening to someone use a chainsaw on a chalkboard.
** The 'tap tap tap' sound from ''Fusion'' will be in your nightmares.

** Wall-jumping in ''Super Metroid'', due to the unforgiving timing required to pull it off correctly. Fortunately, there is only one optional occasion where you have to use it before you acquire the Space Jump, which is a much easier way of doing the same thing. ''Fusion'', ''Zero Mission'', and [[MetroidOtherM Other M]] subsequently made wall jumping a lot easier. And then some difficult {{romhack}}s of ''Super'' make the timing even more unforgiving.

* FoeYayShipping: Some fans like to ship Samus and Ridley together. [[NoYay It doesn't need a lot of]] [[ShowDontTell explaining]] [[NoYay to figure out why this is wrong.]]

* EvenBetterSequel: ''Metroid'' [[TropeMaker basically created the modern]] {{Metroidvania}} genre, and ''Metroid 2'' wasn't exactly bad, either, but it wasn't until ''Super Metroid'' [[TropeCodifier that things]] ''[[SoCoolItsAwesome really]]'' [[{{Awesome/Metroid}} got swinging]].

* 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. You know, the clone of the space pirate she's stood up against multiple times and did actually manage to kill in [[VideoGame/SuperMetroid the previous game]] without having a HeroicBSOD.

** As far as the bosses go, Kraid. He went from being the hardest boss in ''VideoGame/Metroid1'', to being one of Mother Brain's four commanding officers in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'', to being the first boss in ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission'', to never even being mentioned again outside of Metroid Prime's instruction manual.

** People [[ObfuscatingStupidity feigning stupidity]] and pretending to think that Varia Suit Samus is [[ProtagonistTitle a man named Metroid]], while Zero Suit Samus is his girlfriend Samus.

*** To dig its grave even further, a remake of the first game called "Metroid: Zero Mission" not only fixed a lot of the first game's EarlyInstallmentWeirdness but many fans prefer to put Zero Mission in Metroid 1's place timeline-wise, pushing it out of {{Fanon}} almost entirely.
