Dark Tallon Metroids are Darkling-possessed Tallon Metroids that prove to be very important soldiers for the Ing Horde. When a pure Ing invades the body of a Tallon Metroid, the latter undergoes an extensive mutation to become a Dark Tallon Metroid. The smooth, transparent membrane is changed to a thick, ridged, carapace-like surface with a dark purple shade. This surface is vastly covered, in a disorganized manner, with multiple orange-glowing eyes, which come from the red particles belonging to the pure Ing. Interestingly, all but one of these ocular organs are half-closed, giving the Darkling an overall sickly appearance. Dark Tallon Metroids also possess an extra pair of fangs (for a total of six fangs), though they are smaller and less hook-shaped in comparison to the others.
The exact nature of the relationship has varied. In Fusion, Samus reflects on Adam rather fondly. She names her new AI Commanding Officer after Adam, but quickly grows to revile it for lacking his compassion, especially after it chastises her for destroying the Restricted Laboratory. Late in the game, when the computer informs Samus the Galactic Federation is coming to capture the SA-X, Samus calls it Adam. Having not disclosed her private nickname to the computer, it becomes confused for a minute. After a brief argument, the computer regains control of itself and reveals it actually contains the consciousness of the real Adam. In Other M, Samus confesses in her monologues that she viewed Adam as her "best friend" and a father figure. She at one point finds herself concerned with Adam's view of her, knowing that he, a staunch opponent of bioweapons, would have strongly condemned her final act from the SR388 Metroid extermination, of sparing the baby and providing it for scientific study. Anthony Higgs seems to take note of Samus' chemistry with Adam, as he asks her at one point how she feels about him.
The only completely functional Mogenar that Samus encounters is the one located in the Leviathan seed on Bryyo, which has been infused with Phazon spouting out of the Leviathan's very core and thus gone rogue. It boasts an imposing figure that, while not on the level of the impressively monumental Quadraxis or the gigantic Space Pirate Kraid, is at least eight times taller than Samus, with an immense frame that causes it to resemble some kind of Mesoamerican idol. It has three eyes on its reptilian-looking face, keeping in touch with its Bryyonian origins.
The Leviathan Battleship was an organism from Phaaze outfitted with technology by the Space Pirates onboard the Colossus, who had fallen under the control of Dark Samus. According to the Metroid Prime Trilogy art booklet and Space Pirate Data, some time after Dark Samus had spontaneously left the Colossus, she encountered a Leviathan during her search for Phaaze. Once she infected it with her particular strain of Phazon, she had the creature open a wormhole as a shortcut to reach her destination. Afterward, she took the Leviathan back to where she had left the Colossus and ordered the Pirates to follow her through her second trip to Phaaze. It was only after reaching the planet when the crew of the Colossus began installing cybernetic weapons, crew quarters and command consoles into the Leviathan and became their leader's flagship.
Samus Aran’s Fusion Suit is the result of radical alterations to her Power Suit during the opening scenes of Metroid Fusion. Its creation was an unexpected side effect of the surgical removal of certain parts of her armor and the Vaccine "Metroid" given to Samus when she was about to die from an X Parasite infection.

Metroid EX is a sequel series to Samus and Joey. It ran for 12 issues from May 2004 - April 2005. Metroid EX was never made available in volumes like Samus and Joey, and it only exists in the original Comic Bom Bom magazines, making it a much more rare print. The Metroid Database first released their unofficial scan and translation project on April 25th, 2015. The manga centers around Samus Aran, who lost her Power Suit upgrades to Greed, a creature of the same species as her nemesis Ridley, in the final chapter of the previous manga. EX follows her efforts to recover them in perilous adventures across the Extreme Galaxy, with the help of Joey Apronika and Diesel.
Metroid Prime: Federation Force is an upcoming cooperative multiplayer action video game for Nintendo 3DS. Announced at E3 on June 16, 2015, it is being developed by Next Level Games. A spinoff of the Metroid entries, it focuses on the Federation Marines rather than Samus Aran, and the gameplay has more of a focus on action and sports rather than the traditional exploration-based gameplay of Metroid. The game focuses on the struggles of the Galactic Federation Marine Corps against the Space Pirates. It is set on three different planets, with ten missions on each for a total of 30 missions in the game. On one of these planets, the Marines learn of a sinister plot involving an abandoned Federation base and a destructive weapon.
The Steambot Barracks is a room in the floating city SkyTown on planet Elysia. It appears in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. The room is a hibernation chamber for one of the Steamlords of SkyTown, and it also houses several of its dormant Steambot drones as well. Samus arrives in this room during her exploration of SkyTown. Samus enters at the top of the room, and after activating a Hand Scanner, she takes the lift down to the mid-way point. Here, she enters the tunnels in her Morph Ball. Samus emerges from the tunnels through a hole in the top of an inactive Recharge Chamber. Samus attempts to leave the room from here, but is denied authorisation and locked out. Samus swings around to see the Steamlord and five Steambots awaken from cryosleep.
Mech suits are large suits of mechanized armor worn by Federation Marines in Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Multiple designs appear in the game, suited for different purposes. The Mech suits are notably similar to Samus Aran's Power Suit. Their armaments are very similar to Samus' Power Beam, complete with Charge Beam capabilities, and their Heads-Up Display also strongly resembles Samus'. This may indicate that they are the Galactic Federation's attempt at reverse-engineering the Power Suit, as shown in unused concept art for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Despite this, they are much larger and bulkier than Samus' suit, standing nearly 3 times the height of a Federation Marine. This additional bulk seems to prevent them from using abilities like the Space Jump, but Mechs are able to hover in the air briefly via the use of built-in jets.
MB was the main antagonist of Metroid: Other M. Samus Aran first saw MB watching her from a window overlooking the Experiment Floor in the Cryosphere, and she ran away to the Materials Storehouse after realizing she had been seen. Samus gave pursuit, and tried to convince the woman that she was here to rescue her, much to MB's denial. They were separated after Samus was attacked by a soldier using the RB176 Ferrocrusher. Later, Samus enters the Bioweapon Research Center in the Biosphere, and the woman is startled by Samus' presence. She runs behind a door and closes it. Samus once again tries to convince her that she means no harm. The woman opens the door, and introduces herself as Dr. Madeline Bergman. Samus takes her to sit down, and "Madeline" informs Samus of what has happened on the BOTTLE SHIP.
Warp Hounds are creatures found in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Warp Hounds are dangerous foes, thanks to their rapid "warping" ability, in which they are able to teleport from point to point. This feature allows them to ambush enemies in their large numbers to bring them down speedily. Teleporting also makes it hard to focus on one in particular when they hunt in packs, since they can teleport away if Samus's attacks are beginning to damage them too much, landing at an unpredictable place, making them hard to track and evade once they teleport. Their belly area can also be damaged by Bombs. They can be difficult enemies to engage, as they make a habit of teleporting regularly in battle. They can also regurgitate Fuel Gel onto enemies, hindering the foe's movement considerably.
Ghor is a cybernetic Bounty Hunter, capable of merging his body with a large armorsuit. He appears in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Ghor is a veteran of the liberation war of Wotan VII. During the war, Ghor was heavily injured and was forced to modify much of his body with state-of-the-art cybernetic replacements. As a result, only 6% of his original body remains. However, Ghor retains his personality and is known for his empathy, compassion, and sense of humor. Gentle and intelligent, he helps the weak, poor, and troubled by working as a Bounty Hunter for free or giving bounty money he earned to the victims of his targets.
