Terminal Fall warning.

A Terminal Fall is an accidental "death" that can occur in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Certain areas and rooms, either indoors or outdoors, are visited in the three mentioned games, which are suspended high above the ground. If they are not careful when moving about platforms, Samus or members of the Federation Force can fall off the ledge. While presumably they would end up falling to their death, for the sake of easing gameplay, they will respawn a few seconds after falling, either where they fell off or on the ledge they were intending to reach.

Falling in this way does not cause a Game Over, or in Federation Force, the mission to fail. In Echoes and Corruption, the screen will flash and Samus will grunt in pain, with some of her energy lost. Samus can also fall in Metroid Prime Hunters, specifically in rooms on the Celestial Archives that are open to space, but these falls are fatal and will cause a Game Over. Also unique to Hunters is fall damage if Samus jumps down onto a surface from a great height, whereas other Prime games will merely stun her for a moment.

The Meta Ridley battle in Corruption can be considered a prolonged Terminal Fall, as Samus is knocked down the Generator Shaft and must defeat her nemesis before she falls to the bottom. Rundas rescues her before she falls to her death.

Terminal Falls are named in the Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Bonus Disc. When approaching the back ledge of Transport to Agon Wastes, a message will appear on Samus's Heads-Up Display, saying "Warning: Terminal Fall Ahead!"
