* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: The game was briefly shown on an episode of ''Series/{{House}}'', with the titular doctor making an offhanded comment about being on "Level Four." Problem is, ''Metroid'' doesn't use numbered levels except in ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus'''s manual and its remake ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'', where they're called phases and areas respectively.


* AscendedFanon: After 14 years of only being an unofficial fan romanization of the Ridley Robot's Japanese name, "Mecha Ridley" was finally made official by ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosUltimate''.



** The FinalBoss droid shaped like Ridley (known as the "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Ridley Robot]]" in official English sources) has been dubbed "Mecha-Ridley" by fans as a romanization of its Japanese name; this probably gained a lot of traction due to being similar to "[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime Meta Ridley]]". For reasons unknown, the {{speedrun}}ning community calls it Iron Ted.

* ShoutOut: The 3 "unknown items" are a big shout out to ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'', Metroid's sibling. The game was developed by the same team that made the original Metroid, although it is a lot less well known especially outside of Japan. The items greatly resemble the Sacred Treasures of the latter game, and while cosmetically different, perform roughly the same function. The Gravity Suit - highest defense, free movement in liquid, blocks lava damage (Mirror Shield - blocks any attack), Plasma Beam (Light Arrows) - both allow attacks to pierce multiple enemies, and Space Jump (Wings of Pegasus) - both allow unlimited flight.

* ShoutOut: The 3 "unknown items" are a big shout out {{Jossed}}: Some fans theorized that the Space Pirate Mother Ship became the Wrecked Ship in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'', due to ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'', Metroid's sibling. The game was developed by its music being a remix of the Wrecked Ship's and containing the same team robotic enemies. However, Yoshio Sakamoto said that made the original Metroid, although it Wrecked Ship is a lot less well known especially outside of Japan. The items greatly resemble actually the Sacred Treasures of few rooms separating the latter game, Chozo Ruins area from Crateria encountered before the Mother Ship arrives, and while cosmetically different, perform roughly the same function.

** [[VideoGame/SuperMetroid Crocomire]] can be found in the game's files, seemingly indicating that he was going to be included in the game (and the game was meant to tie into Super Metroid more), but was ultimately cut. Interestingly enough, the Crocomire sprite here lacked the rough skin traditionally found on Crocomire, indicating that the player would damage Crocomire due to in-game events.

The design team later changed it to the mostly realistic-looking version it is now, after deciding a game with more realistic graphics would do better in North America, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff where the franchise is more popular]].
