Funny / Metroid: Zero Mission

  • There's only one joke in the entire game, but it's hilarious: A Space Pirate goes Leeroy Jenkins on the starfighter Samus is piloting. This goes just as well as you'd expect.
    RiffTrax: I will succeed where others have failed! ...aaaaaaa!!!
    • Even better, if you don't kill the Pirate who leapt out of the fighter you just hijacked, the Leeroy Jenkins pirate kills him for you!
      • As if that's not enough, if you time the script right, they'll kill each other, and you go out unchallenged!
  • Fighting Ridley by standing underneath him is both terrifying and hilarious. You'll have no idea how he still hasn't killed you yet.
  • Get the Super Missiles ahead of time, and it's possible to kill Kraid in just four shots and two seconds. Hello Kraid. Goodbye Kraid.

  • During the Zero Suit sequence, theres two points where you can set off a chain destruction of stone platforms with your gun, which sends the Space Pirates chasing you careening to the ground. One of them just barely misses the jump to your ledge.
  • There's a robot blocking a hallway in the Pirate Mothership that walks really slowly. REALLY slowwlllyyyy. So how do you get him to speed up when you're in a hurry? Simple, shoot missiles at him. He instantly quickens his pace. Yet if you drop a Power Bomb... he barely reacts.
  • Samus' delightfully dry comment about her weaponry after getting shot down: "All I had for protection was my rather useless emergency pistol."

How well does it match the trope?
