Alt-Forms (or Alternate Form) are a secondary state of movement and fighting that several characters, notably Bounty Hunters, have. Alt-Forms are generally smaller in size and have various unique modes of movement and attack. The term first emerged in Metroid Prime Hunters, although Samus' Morph Ball has been around since the first game of the series.

- Samus Aran - Morph Ball
- Noxus - Vhoscythe
- Spire - Dialanche

Finally, Ghor's Armorsuit has a sort of "Alt-Form", which allows him to ride in it as a form of spacecraft.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- According to Richard Vorodi, by the end of development on Hunters, there were no stand alone or cut ideas for Alt-Forms; every idea NST had was implemented into the game in some form.
