Tank Jingle (as named in the Metroid: Samus Returns internal files) is a short flourish heard when acquiring a Missile, Power Bomb, Beam Ammo, Ship Missile, Universal Ammunition Expansion, Energy or Aeion Tank in the Metroid Prime trilogy and Metroid: Samus Returns. It is much shorter than the Item Acquisition Fanfare heard when acquiring power-ups. However, that fanfare is used in Metroid Prime when acquiring Power Bomb Expansions, since there are only four. The version of "Tank Jingle" in Metroid Prime Hunters is different.

In the core three Prime games, the jingle is accompanied by a percussive beat when acquiring the expansion. This is not present in Samus Returns. In the Gearworks room in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, a Missile Expansion is acquired by Screw Attacking into it in midair. The jingle does not play and the Missile Expansion acquired message does not appear in that instance until Samus reaches the platform on the other side. The jingle also plays when Samus collects a Gold Credit from a Red Phaazoid she has killed.

Samus Returns is a remake of Metroid II: Return of Samus, which used a different expansion jingle that has not returned in any subsequent games. This jingle can be heard here.

The jingle in most games can be heard here, and the jingle from Metroid Prime Hunters here.
