Super Metroid title

The baby, also known as the Metroid Hatchling, Metroid Larva, Hatchling or infant Metroid, is best remembered in its Infant Metroid stage from Metroid II: Return of Samus and Super Metroid, though it did not remain in that form. Samus Aran was ordered by the Galactic Federation to exterminate the remaining Metroids on SR388, so they could no longer be used as weapons by the Space Pirates. She encountered several stages of the creatures on her mission, eventually defeating the Queen Metroid. Soon after, she came across a Metroid Egg, the last remaining of the species. It hatched as she approached, and as she was the first thing that it 'saw', the Metroid imprinted Samus as its unwitting adoptive mother.

Gravitysuit

The Gravity Suit is an upgrade for Samus Aran's Power Suit. As its name implies, the Gravity Suit is known for negating gravitational effects such as zero gravity in space. The Gravity Suit enhancement is obtained after the Varia Suit; the addition turns sections of Samus's armor purple, reduces the damage she takes (to a greater extent than the Varia alone), and allows her to move in fluid unhindered by the resistance and pressure it would normally exert.

Thardus is an enormous rock monster charged with Phazon energy that inhabited Tallon IV in the Phendrana Drifts. It was originally an experiment by the Space Pirates to use Phazon to create sentient creatures out of inanimate objects, but was found quarantined in a cavern in Metroid Prime. This experiment was titled "Project Titan".

Berserker Lord battle

The Berserker Lord is a boss in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. It is the first boss that Samus Aran faces in the game, on the G.F.S. Olympus. Another is faced later into the game on Eastern SkyTown, Elysia. The Lords are very similar to the Elite Pirate and Ingsmashers, playing the same role in terms of gameplay. A Berserker Lord is a Berserker Knight that has survived further corruption with more Phazon than what Knights can usually tolerate (similar to the Omega Pirate compared to Elite Pirates). It is possible the Berserker Pirates are the result of improved experimentation following Project Helix.

MSR MetroidQueen

A Queen Metroid is the largest and most powerful Metroid in the species' standard strain. She is the only individual naturally capable of laying Metroid Eggs, making her solely responsible for the reproduction of the entire species. Only two Queens have been encountered in the chronology of the Metroid series. The first was the main antagonist and final boss of Metroid II: Return of Samus and its remake, Metroid: Samus Returns. The second Queen, cloned from the previous one's last offspring, appeared near the end of Metroid: Other M, battled by Samus as one of the final bosses.

MSR Gullugg artwork

Gulluggs are flying creatures that Samus encounters throughout the planet SR388. While they are somewhat docile in Metroid II: Return of Samus, they are extremely aggressive in Samus Returns. They patrol a set location and in the latter game will lunge towards Samus with their sharp, elongated mouth parts. Gulluggs are the first enemy that Samus is properly introduced to the Melee Counter with and ironically gain a stronger variant immune to the counter, while also being the most common creatures encountered in the caverns.
