Trivia / Metroid II: Return of Samus

  • Serendipity Writes the Plot: The Varia Suit's Shoulders of Doom originated in this game due to hardware limitations. Because of the original Game Boy's lack of color, another way had to be devised to differentiate between the various suit levels, so the Varia Suit was given round shoulders that were hand-waved as being cooling/heat-shielding units for the suit. This development is later retconned into Zero Mission, where Samus doesn't get the round shoulders until she gets her new, more advanced suit towards the end of the game.
