After Samus Aran and Mari Yoshimura #2 check into the Hotel New Galaxy, this bellboy knocks on her door to offer her a drink. She instructs him to put it on the table. Moments later, the bellboy reveals it is a Metroid, sent by Mother Brain to kill Samus. Mari Yoshimura lunges at the creature, but is fatally slashed. Samus shoots the bellboy dead.
