* MagnumOpus: ** ''Super Metroid'' is almost unanimously considered one of the best, [[TropeCodifier if not THE best example]] of EvenBetterSequel in all of gaming. With stellar gameplay, memorable boss fights (including one of the most highly regarded [[FinalBoss final bosses]] of all time) and masterful minimalist storytelling, it regularly tops lists of the greatest SNES games ever, as well as regularly appearing on, and sometimes topping, lists of the greatest games of all time. ** ''Metroid Prime'' is also a highly-praised series revival, and regarded by many as the best game on the [=GameCube=]. Fans are split as to whether ''Super'' or ''Prime'' is the true highest point of the series, though some are content with saying that [[TakeAThirdOption both of them]] are.

Not YMMV
* MagnumOpusDissonance: Sakamoto wanted to top ''Super Metroid'''s success with ''Other M''. As the split-opinion shows, the results were far less than stellar.

TRS voted to axe Parvum Opus.
* ParvumOpus: ''Other M'', while a competently made game, is widely considered the worst game in the series due to its handling of certain characters (especially Samus herself), its awkward control scheme, and its lack of exploration.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Much of this Japanese series' fanbase is based in America, which might be why the 3D revival of the series was given to an American development studio. ** In fact, Other M was designed mostly to get the Japanese to buy it; not only did it not work, but their efforts came at the cost of losing a good part of the (much larger) American fanbase.

** The topic of how Samus should look outside of her suit is a loaded one. It largely comes down to those who like her design from the first ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' game more and those who prefer her more standard design. There are also debates about her height or how muscular she should be.

His brain isn't actually exposed, he just has a red dome on his head that looks like it.
* {{Squick}}: A blink-and-you'll-miss-it example. As you are entering the Olympus, you see Ghor in containment room being scanned. During this time, you see him scratching his head. The problem? This also means that he is scratching his ''brain''.

** Rundas from ''MetroidPrime 3'' and Sylux from ''Metroid Prime Hunters'' (the [[spoiler:appearance of a ship that looks like the Delano 7 in the 100% ending of ''Corruption'']] may have been a nod to Sylux's popularity) are quite popular thanks to being awesome bounty hunters, one being a ProudWarriorRaceGuy and the other being a fountain for EpilepticTrees. Rundas is more popular because he was once Samsus's ally before being brainwashed and takes out a bunch of Space pirates before his battle.

** The first ''Metroid Prime'' is another game that's considered risky to criticize, since it's often considered to be in the same league as Super Metroid in quality.

* SacredCow: ''Super Metroid'' and ''Metroid Prime'' are held in very high esteem by virtually the entire fanbase.

* FandomHeresy: If you say that you liked Other M or even go as far as to say it was your favorite in the series, expect a few eyebrows to raise, and maybe a fight to break out.

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'. ** If you say that you liked Other M or even go as far as to say it was your favorite in the series, expect a few eyebrows to raise, and maybe a fight to break out.

I should've been more clear. The only comment supporting the idea came from a background designer as part of a joke "Things only I know" section in a Q & A (the BG designer had no part in Samus' design or conception). Sakamoto clearly said the idea was as impossible as a PS 2 port of a Nintendo franchise. The article that caused this discussion wrongly assumed that Matsuoka gave a sincere response and mistranslated the quote from Sakamoto. As such, the concept itself does not have any support from official sources and does not belong on the page at all.
** Whether Samus is a UsefulNotes/{{trans|gender}}woman, not helped by an interview in which Sakamoto stated that asking if there would ever be a ''Metroid'' game for UsefulNotes/{{PlayStation 2}} would be like if asking if Samus is a transvestite.
