''Hyper Metroid'' is a ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' fan hack by [=RealRed=]. In an AlternateUniverse, Samus Aran settles down with her husband, Adam Malkovich, on a peaceful space colony. However, disaster strikes when Space Pirates destroy the colony, massacring everything in their path. Samus is the sole survivor of the disaster and tragically loses her child soon after. Samus goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge as a result, wiping out the Metroids on SR-88 after she learns the Space Pirates seek to weaponize them and leaving one infant Metroid alive to lure them out into the open. After Ridley takes the bait, Samus follows him to Planet Zebes, seeking to put an end to the Space Pirates once and for all.

This hack focuses on exploration. The goal is to unlock 15 gates to allow the player to access Tourian and kill Mother Brain. There are many paths the player can take through Zebes to achieve this goal. The map and ammo system have been overhauled and some quality of life changes made to the original Super Metroid engine.

The hack can be downloaded [[http://hyper.metroidconstruction.com/ here.]]

!!''Hyper Metroid'' provides examples of:
* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: While Samus's life was never pleasant, this game adds on to the horror by having her family massacred by Space Pirates ''again'' when she tries to settle down and leave the bounty hunting life behind.
* AdaptationalJerkass: In this universe Samus deliberately let the Baby Metroid go unsupervised to lure the Space Pirates into capturing it for their experiments and has very little attachment to it otherwise.
* AdaptationalRelationshipUpgrade: In this game's universe Samus and Adam were married.
* CrapsackWorld: There seems to be no Federation to keep the Space Pirates in check at all in this world. The end cutscene describes the Space Pirates as ruling over the universe and no one assigns Samus any missions.
* DesperatelySeekingAPurposeInLife: [[spoiler:Samus's fate at the end of the game has her head out into the vastness of space, looking for meaning.]]
* EscapeSequence: This game, like most Metroid games, has one. It's notable for being extremely long; the timer for completing it is ''10 minutes''.
* GhostShip: The Wrecked Ship returns in this hack and is just as populated by ghosts.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Samus's motivation in this game is revenge for all the hurt the Space Pirates have piled onto her over the years.
* SchmuckBait: Samus leaves the Baby Metroid on an abandoned space colony to lure Ridley into stealing it and bringing it back to the Space Pirate homeworld. Predictably, he takes it.
* ShipshapeShipwreck: The Wrecked Ship is partially submerged in this version of the game but is not much worse for wear compared to the original.
* TurnsRed: A variation; Red Metroids are genetically enhanced Metroids that take even more ammunition to kill than the originals.
* UnderwaterBase: Tourian is underwater in this universe's Zebes, making it one.
* UniversalAmmunition: Unlike in most Metroid games, this game's ammunition is universal, mitigating some of the frustration in the original Super Metroid about the wrong ammo dropping.
* VengeanceFeelsEmpty: [[spoiler:Even after ridding the universe of the Space Pirates, Samus can never regain the family she lost and feels empty and lost.]]
