A trivia quiz is a game or mind sport in which questions are asked, and players must attempt to correctly answer them. Alternatively, a quiz can be a brief assessment to measure a person's knowledge or aptitude. Three official Metroid quizzes have been released to date, themed around Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime Hunters and Metroid: Samus Returns.
Metroid Prime - TriviaEdit
A general Metroid trivia quiz with ten questions, asking the player to identify a subject out of four images or text options. This can be done by clicking on the image or word/name. It features the Metroid Prime logo, but uses artwork of Samus from Hunters and asks questions outside the scope of the first Metroid Prime. It was actually released to promote Metroid Prime Pinball. Once the quiz is complete, the player will receive a congratulatory message regardless of how they scored, with the option to try the quiz again or go to the Pinball website. The quiz has been unofficially archived and can be played here.

Metroid Prime Hunters - Know Your EnemyEdit
This quiz involves matching all seven Bounty Hunter silhouettes to their names, Alt-Forms and Affinity Weapons. Correctly matching each Hunter unlocks a tip for dealing with them in combat. When a hunter is correctly matched, the Event Jingle plays. If a hunter is incorrectly matched, the word "Incorrect!" will appear on screen with an option to try again. Successfully completing the quiz brings up an option to play it again, or to visit the Hunters website, www.metroidhunters.com to download wallpapers and IM icons based on each Bounty Hunter. The website now redirects to an empty domain name.
How well do you know the bounty hunters in Metroid Prime Hunters?
"This interactive tool will help you find out. Use the arrows to move all four reels and match up each hunter's name, image, Alt Form, and weapon of choice. When you think you have it right, click "submit". If you're correct, you'll unlock a game tip for that hunter. Can you unlock all seven tips?"
- Samus Aran
- "Samus is a great choice and balanced hunter for all modes and most arenas. Her Morph Ball form gives her extra ground speed and her Bombs are effective, whether she's chasing another hunter or being chased."
- "Trace is a sniping specialist, and his power is unmatched in open arenas that have lots of ledges. After grabbing the Imperialist, he can watch and choose his targets, unseen by other hunters."
- "The Vhoscythe is fast and dangerous, but the fact that it is difficult to control makes it a better choice for open arenas than ledges. In tunnels, Noxus's Judicator is extremely effective since it can bounce off walls."
- "Spire is at home in lava arenas, incurring no damage in the hot stuff while other hunters are melting. He's also a good choice in vertically oriented arenas, where he can climb the walls."
- "In arenas with veiled doorways or narrow main passages, Sylux's Alt-Form Bombs are great traps. In Capture mode, Sylux can pursue hunters who have stolen his Octolith and sap their energy."
- "Kanden is a good choice for arenas that have a lot of ledges. When Kanden crawls along a high platform in Stinglarva form, enemies will have a hard time hitting him, blasting the lip of the platform instead."
- "Weavel's Alt-Form allows you to multitask. You can place the Halfturret in a much-contested location, such as a ring node or a place where a popular item regenerates, while the other half explores."

- Your Aeion Ability is SCAN PULSE
- When it comes to hunting aliens, you’re on a need-to-know basis. As in, you need to know what’s around you! That’s why Scan Pulse is the Aeion Ability that best matches the way you’d want to play the Metroid: Samus Returns game. You can use Scan Pulse to scan the surrounding area, then reveal information on the touch screen map. You’ll even be able to see which nearby blocks are breakable.
- Your Aeion Ability is LIGHTNING ARMOR
- Self-defense is at the top of your To-Do list, especially when it comes to fighting aliens. That’s why Lightning Armor is the Aeion Ability that best matches the way you’d want to play the Metroid: Samus Returns game. You can use Lightning Armor to surround Samus with an electrical barrier, preventing physical damage. It can even be used to power up a Melee Counter attack to a Lightning Counter with longer range.
- Your Aeion Ability is BEAM BURST
- Attack is the best form of defense, especially when you’re trying to hunt down deadly aliens. That’s why Beam Burst is the Aeion Ability that best matches the way you’d want to play the Metroid: Samus Returns game. You can use Beam Burst to increase your beam weapon’s attack power. You can even hold down the Y Button for a continuous flurry of rapid-fire shots.
- Your Aeion Ability is PHASE DRIFT
- You’re fast on your feet, and you know the best way to get ahead of an enemy is to slow it down. That’s why Phase Drift is the Aeion Ability that best matches the way you’d want to play the Metroid: Samus Returns game. You can use Phase Drift to slow time for everything except Samus, giving her a chance to run over collapsing floors and attack fast-moving enemies.
