The Phazon Suit is an upgrade to the Power Suit from Metroid Prime. While other suit upgrades involve the incorporation of advanced technological hardware, the Phazon Suit is a result of the Power Suit being corrupted by an overload of pure Phazon upon defeating the Omega Pirate. This suit has a faint aura emanating from it, and this suit's color scheme is now shades of black, crimson, and silver-grey, as opposed to the usual scheme of red, yellow, and orange.
Flaahgra is an enormous mutated plant-like creature in Metroid Prime and is the main boss of the Chozo Ruins. Flaaghra extended its vile roots to all corners of the Chozo Ruins, and began to secrete a poison which tainted the waters of the Ruins. The water was so toxic and corrosive that it dealt damage to Samus on contact, though it was completely cleansed the instant Flaahgra was defeated.
A live-action film version of Metroid was reportedly in development by Lion Rock Productions. Warren Zide and Craig Perry of Zide/Perry Entertainment optioned the film rights for Metroid in January 2003, but these rights expired. John Woo then stepped in and said he would develop the movie. The film was to be based around Samus Aran and her early battles with the Metroids and Mother Brain. It was scheduled to be released in theaters around 2006 but no further word had been heard about the project since 2004.
Nightmare is described as a "a Bio-Mechanical organism designed for military applications that possesses uncommon power and can manipulate gravity". Nightmare appears as a boss in both Metroid: Other M and Metroid Fusion, in which Samus has to defeat the creature while enduring its gravity manipulation abilities. Chronologically, Samus first encountered Nightmare in Metroid: Other M while on her journey to Sector Zero on the BOTTLE SHIP. The creature fights Samus twice; once when she tries to enter Sector Zero, and again when she tries to exit Sector Zero. When first defeated, Nightmare's face will tear off while colliding with the walls due to the malfunctioning of its gravity manipulator, until the beast finally crashes to the ground.
The Space Pirate mining facility was the base of operations for the Space Pirates in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. It was a former Luminoth mining facility in the Agon Wastes before the Space Pirates captured it abandoned. Following the loss of the bases on Tallon IV in Metroid Prime, the Pirates sought to regain their ground. They discovered the presence of Phazon on planet Aether, and was given permission by High Command to investigate. The problem with this was that Aether was in the Dasha region, which was located on the fringes of Galactic Federation-controlled space. This necessitated the creation of a stealth shield to hide the Pirates' activities on the planet. Also complicating matters was repeated attacks on the Pirates by shadowy creatures that caused considerable damage to the base, necessitating the sending of more combat troops.
Aurora Unit 313 was the final boss in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. 313 was a Galactic Federation Aurora Unit stolen by Space Pirates from the G.F.S. Valhalla, under the orders of Dark Samus. 313 was an organic supercomputer originally used to assist and interface with the crew of Federation starships. As it was being removed from the Valhalla by the Pirates, it left behind a final message to the Federation, detailing its abduction. It was taken to Phaaze, where it was implanted into the planet and corrupted by Phazon. Seemingly as a result of Phaaze being a living organism, coupled with the Space Pirates' expertise in bio-technology, the organic supercomputer became symbiotically linked with the planet.
Elevators (or lifts) are a common transportation method built into developed areas or spacecraft. Very few inhabited locations do not feature them heavily as an access between areas or within levels of a single location. Elevators vary in design and method of propulsion. The 2D games featured slow floating panels that lowered and raised Samus along narrow tunnels. The elevators on planet Tallon IV use a traditional rail/pulley system. The elevators of Aether are much faster, utilizing a jet booster to launch the pads down and upwards at high speeds. In Metroid: Other M, the elevators are more like modern ones.

Kanden is one of the six bounty hunters encountered in Metroid Prime Hunters. He was the result of an experiment to create invincible super-soldiers, but his mind didn't take the advanced combat programming very well. He went rogue, killing his creators and destroying their lab. Possessing incredible strength and durability, the genes of the deadliest predatory insect in the galaxy, and the fast-firing Volt Driver, Kanden set out to prove himself as the ultimate bounty hunter.
Another Metroid 2 Remake (often shortened to AM2R) is a fan-produced remake of Metroid II: Return of Samus, developed by Argentinian independent programmer Milton "DoctorM64" Guasti. The game updates the 1991 version with color, a visual style similar to Super Metroid and gameplay similar to Metroid: Zero Mission. After years of development, the game was released for free to Windows-based computers on August 6, 2016, coinciding with the Metroid series thirtieth anniversary. However, shortly afterward, Nintendo sent DMCA notices to websites hosting the game, including the official blog and the Metroid Database, forcing their removal. The game is still available through torrents.
The Varia Suit (referred to simply as Varia in Metroid and Metroid II: Return of Samus and Varia Feature in Metroid: Other M) is a Power Suit upgrade. The name is a mistranslation of the word "barrier" (interestingly, the Metroid II manual uses Barrier Suit anyway), pertaining to its usefulness; the Varia Suit reduces damage taken, nullifies damage from Acid, slightly increases speed, and protects Samus Aran from extreme heat and sub-zero temperatures. Samus is most commonly depicted wearing this suit, but like many of her other upgrades, it is lost at or prior to the beginning of most games, requiring her to track the upgrade down at a later point in time. The maximum temperature that the Varia Suit can protect against is unknown, but the Gravity Suit is generally required for some of the higher temperature liquids.
Sylux is a powerful Bounty Hunter who appeared in Metroid Prime Hunters. Very little is known about Sylux, other than that he harbors a strong hatred for the Galactic Federation, and Samus Aran by association. Very little is known about this character or why Sylux hates the Galactic Federation and Samus Aran. Sylux views fellow Bounty Hunter, Samus Aran, as an enemy by association for working with the Federation.
Following the defeat of the Space Pirates in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, the Galactic Federation began work on Project Golem, an effort to better equip their soldiers to combat the Pirates. They created Mechs, armorsuits based on the design of Samus Aran's Power Suit, to be worn by the Federation Force's members.
