RoyboyX (also known as Roy, Royboy and RBX) is a Wikitroid user who was inspired by Samus Aran to become a leading contributor. I have the highest edit count and largest number of surviving creations - articles, categories, disambiguation pages and templates - of any user on the wiki. I've played every game in some form or another countless times and consider myself an expert on the Metroid series. I'm a former administrator and patroller and currently a rollbacker. I'm also approved to use AutoWikiBrowser (AWB) and am a member of the trusted usergroup, which means my edits are autopatrolled.

I'm also the deputy creative director of Shinesparkers! I've worked with Darren to put together interviews with Jack Mathews, Clark Wen, Hip Tanaka and Idzuki Kouji, I've had a hand in many of the site's Community Spotlights and features, and I'm a regular on the site's podcast.

Accomplishments[edit | edit source]

With the help of my co-editors here on Wikitroid I have made many changes to the wiki. My first notable accomplishment was probably the C&C Policy and extermination of the red links before Other M 's release, though the process through which that was done was rather messy. I was stupid.

  • Implementing the C&C Policy and extermination of the redlinks prior to the release of Metroid: Other M.
  • I saw to the deletion of the bestiary categories and grandfathered fanon pages.
  • I created a lot of talkheaders.
  • I exterminated the Stubs, which were once as vast in numbers as the Metroids, prior to the 25th anniversary of the series.
  • I helped to pass the Notability RfC and create new guidelines for article deletion.
  • I have repeatedly destroyed the uncategorized and unused files.
  • I passed several policies including No Personal Attacks, You Are Valuable, Use Common Sense, Only Revert Once, Sign your comments and the Room policy.
  • I slowly began implementing the Showhide template.
  • I exterminated the Articles in need of cleanup prior to Q3 2014 (killing the In-universe articles written in the out-of-universe perspective, or Battleguides in one whole day), which necessitated purchasing Metroid: Zero Mission: The Official Nintendo Player's Guide.
  • I also exterminated the core Pages in need of images, which necessitated purchasing the Men in Black 3 iOS game (free) and the Japanese version of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.
  • I finally set my sights on adding data to the Articles in need of data in a week.
  • I saw to the removal of the Unknown Name System and replacing it with a Conjectural Title System, having grown tired of the wiki's unspoken insistence on official names or nothing.
  • I assisted in covering information from Samus and Joey and Metroid EX, and the newly discovered The Shape of Happiness and Metroid: Zebes Invasion Order.
  • I created the 4000th and 5000th articles on this wiki - Federation Force and SR-388 incident.
  • I wrote the majority of the Another Metroid 2 Remake article.
  • Created articles for the staff of all games, a massive undertaking that took 2 years, and implemented a project to document all rooms in the non-Prime Metroid games either in lists or individual articles.
  • I've written much of five of the ten largest articles on Wikitroid.

With the release of Metroid Prime 4 in the future, we'll have a lot more to do here.

Biography[edit | edit source]



In addition to Wikitroid I am an achievement hunter, amateur chef, craft maker, occasional Twitter pundit, YouTube watcher and item collector, and the deputy creative director of Shinesparkers.

On Wikitroid, I am an offbeat but reliable user, with over 70,000 edits logged. Before I became an admin I was granted the right of rollback. Even if I don't make an edit on a particular date I do browse the site regularly to ensure that I don't have to brutally murder helpless vandals miss anything important. When it comes to FANDOM©®™ editing I am pretty knowing after eight years, but some things I'm not extremely experienced with, like writing references or coding templates from scratch.

Game Log[edit | edit source]

I saved this image right before its deletion. For some reason I wasn't able to let it go. Reminded me of the good times.

This section lists what I think of the games.

  • Metroid - beat countless times. Could rarely beat without Narpas Sword.
  • Metroid II - I liked the game, but it needs an update. I recently played through it, and finished it. Heartwarming ending with Samus becoming a "mother". AM2R is finally out, and I couldn't be more excited.
  • Super Metroid - BEST. GAME. EVER. Beat countless times and still is not enough. Best game in the series.
  • Fusion - I liked the game, but didn't like its non-linearity, the difficulty of the bosses (YAKUZA.), and the terrible AI for the SA-X. Remake this game and learn from Alien: Isolation, Nintendo! While you're at it, where's the sequel?
  • Zero Mission - I like this game too, but I wish it were longer. Maybe add in Maridia and other areas of Zebes. Also the Zero Suit is cool. This version, the OG one, had no hooker wedge heels.
  • Prime - first played GCN, and countless more times in Trilogy. Trilogy certainly makes the controls better, though I did play GCN again in 2014. Best next to Super Metroid.
  • Echoes Bonus Disc - I have it as part of my GC MP1 copy. First time I wasted my Light Beam ammo.
  • Echoes - I didn't enjoy it as much as the two others, but I do like it. I have found myself contributing a lot to the MP2 content on this wiki, due to the Luminoth's extensive amounts of technology and cultural works. I originally started on GameCube but when Trilogy was nearing release I halted progress. Still have the save data so I may take it up again. I completed an Aether navigation project. Samus looks bad in this game, compared to other games. Wish it had ZM connectivity: beat MP2, get Zebes multiplayer stage and Zero Suit for use ingame, and beat ZM, get Metroid II or Super or something unlocked for play.
  • Corruption - I loved it. Have beaten numerous times. I did the original but like 2, Trilogy was nearing release so I halted progress. Not going to take this up again since I can no longer 100% with Friend Vouchers.
  • First Hunt - I mistakenly bought this and the puzzles were too hard, so I traded it in for the real game. Probably should've kept it.
  • Hunters - I beat it after numerous deaths (mostly on the escape sequences). Controls sucked and the Hunters/Guardians made for 16 deaths.
  • Pinball - Hella hella* Extremely hard. No Chozo Ruins table. But last I played I was the top scorer in the world. No joke. Not sure if I can check anymore.
  • Trilogy - Got it on the first day, keeping it in excellent condition, collecting credits and currently navigating Tallon IV. Currently stored in my collection when in late 2013 I beat Corruption on Hypermode for the first and only time (with surprisingly few deaths). Can't kill Ice Troopers with Missiles and no Sequence Breaking is possible anymore, not that I could do it. MP3 door loading takes 3 years!

Bish you bout to die!

  • Other M - I liked it. It's not Super or Prime but it did not kill my love for Samus. Intense action sequences, I like that many of the appearances of things resemble that of Super Metroid (gives me the classic feel), a recreation of the best ending in video game history. Controls were meh... maybe someone will mod the game so you can play it with a Nunchuk. I had superhuge nerdgasms when I saw that Nightmare, the Queen Metroid and Phantoon were bosses. None of them had their old themes though :(. And while I respect the PTSD scene and agree that she didn't need fucking wedge heels, apart from the Sector Zero scene Samus's relationship with Adam (the focus of an article I'm quite proud of) is not sexist at all. It's a realistic depiction of a freelance agent working with a command officer. And she does rebel against him a bit. In her own words, she can get away with it.
  • Smash Bros. - I can't really master the controls. When Samus is shocked out of her suit she's just a dumb naked silver polygon. But there is a GameShark code that lets you play as this Samus. If you know what it is, GIMME IT BITCH.
  • Melee - I always play it at my friend's house. We play this and I will kick your ass. Just wish they maybe introduced armorless Samus somehow, made Ridley playable like you thought he would be with the intro.
  • Brawl - I do well with Zelda and Samus as with Melee. I still maintain that Tabuu is the most difficult boss I have ever faced in a video game.
  • Smash 4 - I like how Sakurai made Samus and Zamus look like MOM but still hold elements of their classic appearances. Sobbing that Dark Samus is an Assist Trophy and Ridley a possible stage hazard. If you take me on as Zamus... bad idea. Like eating tandoori chicken for breakfast and then playing Mirror's Edge. That's a really bad idea. Something I've done. *hurl*
  • Federation Force - It looks like it has the aura of a Metroid Prime game, but I suspect that it won't leave a lasting impression on me. Its campaign looks like something that will take me a day to finish.

* Having played Life is Strange, this word is forever annoying to me.

Manga Log[edit | edit source]

Samus 2 --fanart--.jpg

  • 1986 manga - Loved it. Very funny. Wrote the whole plot on the page.
  • Nintendo Comics System and Captain N - Meh, they were okay. I found it funny when Big Time got his ass kicked.
  • SM Comic - Blech, too different from the game. Why TF would Ridley flee? Tactical retreat my ass. Ending was mutilated. Rather than get epically killed by a giant brain, the hatchling got shot by every cliche donut-eating fat cop ever.
  • Shonen Oh! Manga - Again, hilarious. Especially the one where she gets electrocuted.
  • Samus and Joey - Sort of kiddy (not really. Cussing!), but I read it anyway. I always looked forward to the next chapter to see how physics would be brutally murdered this time.
  • Metroid EX - Physics, what are physics? Amazing conclusion. It was very rewarding to finally see the ending and to see Samus without her suit, which I had been wishing for since I read the first chapter when it was translated all those years ago.
  • MP1 Comic - Thardus in Chozo Ruins? Having the visors early? But it was cool to see Metroids aboard the Orpheon. Pretty inconsistent overall.
  • Episode of Aether - Three chapters and like so far. We waited over three years for the last chapter (I'm not mad, it's extremely rare) and it was disheartening to see the survivors from the initial invasion lying dead when Samus returned from Dark Aether. It seems she's not allowed to have friends.
  • Metroid 2002 manga - I haven't really gotten into reading this beyond specific points, for articles. Seems random and soapy, but an improved version of the story could make for a cool origin game. Which is something they should make, in addition to Metroid Prime 4 and Dread.
  • The Shape of Happiness - I thought it would have an intriguing premise when I first saw this story on @brycecorp, but no, it's a trio of 2 page bizarre stories.

Metroid vs. Battletoads in the works?

Samus Aran: The Girl in Armor[edit | edit source]

Beautiful fanart picture, thanks Metroid Map Station! :D

Like MDb's The Woman Behind the Visor feature, but on the history of armorless Samus.

In the original Metroid, Samus was thought to be a man, cyborg or robot. Even the English instruction manual said that, as did the 1986 manga and later, Samus and Joey. However, unless you were smart enough to know that Samus was the female variant for Seamus, you had to beat Metroid in under an hour to find out the true identity of Samus. A woman. If Metroid was cleared fast enough, Samus would strip down to a pink bikini, let her long hair down and wave to you before the credits rolled. And, the bonus was, if you pressed start at the end of the credits, you could play as Samus in this armorless form, and she would be just as strong. If you cleared the game with armorless Samus in under an hour, you would see her strip down to an even more revealing bikini, which was favored by schoolboys (such as me).

Later on, the infamous JUSTIN BAILEY ------ ------ password was discovered, and Samus spawned armorless in Norfair with Ridley and Kraid zapped and Tourian open for invasion. This was thought to be the only password that let you play as armorless Samus, but then the password 000000 000020 000000 000020 was discovered, and small symbols were placed next to passwords to tell you if you would be playing armorless or armored.

Unfortunately, the passwords were taken out of the rest of the Metroid games. While this pleased many, it also disappointed those who like to play as Samus in a bathing suit. Thus, armorless Samus was limited to appearing in the best endings of the next two games, Metroid II and Super Metroid, and the game over in Super, as well as ROM hacks published of both games. Because Nintendo was too busy with Mario and Zelda to make the first 3-D Metroid, the next game would not come until eight years later. During this time, Samus appeared in the two Super Smash Bros. instalments, but except for a reflection in her congrats! screen, a brief second of a nude, silver body and a trophy that could not be obtained without hacking, armorless Samus was nowhere to be seen as playable in Smash Bros. Not even an alternate costume. *kicks ass of Nintendo*

After eight years, Metroid Prime and Metroid Fusion were released in 2002. Armorless Samus was restricted to the game over of Fusion and the 100% endings of both games. It seemed that she was never coming back. Until Metroid: Zero Mission two years later.

In this game, a remake of the first Metroid, Samus was shot down after killing Mother Brain, and she was forced to invade the Pirate's mothership, with only her wits, agility and a stun gun to defend her. Later, she found the Varia Suit that holds the trademark round shoulder pads introduced in Metroid II and featured in every game since. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, released the same year, also had the Zero Suit as part of the 100% ending. If they'd added Zero Mission connectivity I'd say they could have made the Zero Suit an unlockable cosmetic recolor, much like the Fusion Suit in the original Prime. Echoes was the odd one out with the extras.

Metroid Prime Hunters and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption featured the Zero Suit in an ending capacity as well. In Corruption, the Zero Suit was featured in the introduction, a cutscene played after the defeat of Mogenar and the 100% ending, which also featured Sylux in his Delano 7. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, released a year after Corruption, Samus was finally able to shed her armor and show us what she could do. Clad in her Zero Suit and armed with her Zero Mission Paralyzer and a new electric whip designed for Brawl, armorless Samus finally made her debut in Smash Bros.

Metroid: Other M featured the Zero Suit in the opening sequence (similar to Corruption), and in the cutscene before Ridley's battle as well as for the entire Sector Zero cutscene. She last appeared suitless at the end, taking her suit off to hold Adam's helmet, which she had come back for. Thankfully, Sakamoto listened to people who wanted to use the Zero Suit again (I knew the art folio was foreshadowing!) and once again allowed us to play the Zero Suit, but this time in 3D. She once again uses the stun pistol, now known under its name from Brawl, the Paralyzer, and escapes the Bottle Ship holding her commander's helmet. She may not have retained her Energy Tanks like in Zero Mission, but she can now charge the Paralyzer herself without waiting, is much more agile, takes far less damage and trades crawling for sliding under closing gates, Indiana Jones style. Because of that, I don't care that the game has no ending.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U featured Zero Suit Samus returning again. This time her appearance was an amalgamation of Zero Mission and Other M. She had the Zero Suit design from Other M but her hairstyle, blue eyes and tall build from Zero Mission. Her face was a blend of both games. Her Jet Boots, while cool, are admittedly impractical looking, as well as her flexibility with them and the rest of her body. The suitlessness of Samus in the game went a step further by bringing back her Ending Outfits from Zero Mission and Fusion.

Random facts[edit | edit source]

  • Piratehunter used to call me Edward Cullen.
  • My name is Roy (duh).
  • I cannot fluently speak any language other than English, yet I am interested in learning Japanese.
  • The Italian version of Wikitroid's skin before Monaco died reminded me of pasta sauce :D.
  • GloZell knows I exist [2] [comments now turned off - she responded to me with "Congrats!" when I said I was the first commenter.]
  • I got scarred me for life as a kid. Even now that I'm an adult I still look behind my shoulder and expect to see Maleficent's shadow illuminated on a wall or something. In honor of that, I need to get a wall of bricks and then paint her on and add a light that activates when the other lights are off.
  • Mavis Beacon isn't real?!?! #childhoodruined
  • On April 4, 2015, I got the Screw Attack tattooed onto my chest, thereby making me a fan for life.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

This part of AM2R was so beautiful.

These are some memorable quotes.

I have not failed 10,000 times. I have found 10,000 ways that didn't work.

Don't use Comcast.

—Me when Mr. Anon quits out of IRC abruptly.

True loyalty takes years to build, and only seconds to destroy.

—Emily Thorne

You forget what it means to be human, Pious! The human race will NEVER go quietly into the darkness! For as long as you have spent summoning your lord, people have struggled against you! Now, thanks to their efforts, I have three of the Ancients' essences. Now, Pious. This is the end!

—Alexandra Roivas

As I gazed up at the Ancient I had brought into this world to stop Pious, my mistake was made clear. This Ancient could lay the world to ruin just as easily as Pious' would have. And yet, as quickly as it began, it ended. To think, that once I could not see beyond the veil of reality, to see those who dwell behind... I was once a fool.

—Alexandra Roivas

Corporations have more power than the government. Everyone's fighting for power. For control.

—Adam Jensen

In our darkest moments, when life flashes before us, we find something... Something that keeps us going.

—Lara Croft

I'm just a realist, it's a capitalist society. Not everyone's cut out for that kind of constant pressure. Sure, there are opportunities to be had, but at what price? You gain, someone else loses.

—Chris Redfield

I should've seen it coming... It didn't take long after the fall of the Umbrella Corporation for their bio weapons to end up in the hands of terrorists. A new era of bio-terrorism descended upon vulnerable countries, shifting the balance of power throughout the region. People in the destabilized areas soon feared another incident like Raccoon City was inevitable. As panic spread, governments of the world turned to the Global Pharmaceutical Consortium, which formed the anti-terrorism unit BSAA. Operatives of the BSAA were sent to infiltrate and neutralize bioterrorist hotspots, restoring safety and stability to various regions around the globe.
Casualties continue to mount over the long years I've struggled. More and more I find myself wondering if it's all worth fighting for. Maybe one day I'll find out. There is one thing I do know... I have a job to do, and I'm going to see it through.

—Chris Redfield

PLEASE! I really want a present! PLEASE!

—Catherine (my daughter in Fable III)

I'd like to shoot you in the teeth but that would be too kind. Reckon instead I'll take my knife, whittle you some like you did Soapy. Then slit your throat like you did Jenny. Or maybe I'll take this cross and jam it in your good eye and watch you twitch. But none of that will bring back my Ma and Pa, or all those villagers you massacred. Nor Ned who raised me as his own. So long, major... Give the Devil my regards.

—Colton White (Gun)

It soon became clear to me the Joker, so often described as a raving, homicidal madman... was actually a tortured soul crying out for love and acceptance. A lost, injured child trying to make the world laugh at his antics. And there, as always, was the self-righteous Batman. Determined to make life miserable for my angel. Yes, I admit it. As unprofessional as it sounds, I had fallen in love with my patient. Pretty crazy, huh? [...] Never again. No more obsession, no more craziness, no more Joker. I finally see that slime for what he is: a murderous, manipulative, irredeemable... angel!

—Harley Quinn

When you overthrow a dictator, you don’t leave their statue up in the square. You tear it the hell down.

—Jessica Pearson
