Trivia: Super Metroid

  • Fan Nickname:
    • A handful of rooms in Super Metroid, such as "Noob Bridge" (which named a trope) in Green Brinstar, and "Mount Doom" in Black Maridia. In fact, the very act of naming certain areas with colors can count as this.
    • "Torizo" was originally a simple mistranslation: it's an Alternate Character Reading of "choujinzoku", whence we get the term "Chozo". The fans of the game took the term Torizo and applied it specifically to the Chozo statues that get up and attack you.
  • Serendipity Writes the Plot: The appearance of the Varia Suit in Super Metroid and onwards is the result of the Game Boy's lack of color. In the original NES game the Varia Suit was denoted by a Palette Swap. Since the Game Boy was black and white, the suit itself became physically different after being obtained in Metroid II. The design was retained for this game and the rest is history.
