I love how Prime is supposed to be closely correlated to the whole Metroid universe but there are big plot holes that Retro studies never addressed because Sakamoto wasnt directing Prime and gave away a lot of freedom, great video though.

Metroid Other M's plot is totally destroying the rest of the entire lore. It is also contradicting every single one of the games, including backstory etc. I sincerly hope, they exclude it from the timeline entirely and/or just ignore it for the rest of the released games. Hopefully they dont fuck MP4 up as well. I have high hopes for this one. This is just a theory, but do you remember the red phazon inside the impact crater on Tallon IV in MP1? It was theorized, that this is an older version of the ordinary blue Phazon (and it is not theorized by some people in the real world, but in the logbook entry for the red phazon, that this is the case). However, it never came to occur on all 5 Planets (meaning, Aether, Norion, Bryyo, Elysia and the pirate Homeworld) and not even on Phaaze itself, the presumed Homeworld of the Phazon itself. So what if Phaaze was just a planet that has been totally corrupted. With no Chozo to conserve most of the Phazon via a forcefield, or without Samus destroying an entire twin planet, before the Phazon could corrupt the rest of the planet. Or in the case of Prime 3 before there was a significant amount of time passing for all this to occur. Another thing I wonder a bit: How did the Metroid Prime come to existince? I mean, as far as the game tells you, it is supposed to be a Metroid infected by phazon so much, that it evolved into this type of creature. But there were no Metroids on Tallon IV, because the Space Pirates would have definetly found them. The Logbook of the Tallon-Metroid however reads, that these were the last surviving Metroids from planet Zebes before Samus was there in Metroid 1 and that they were feeded with phazon to become this weaker form of a usual Metroid. From all we know, SR388 is the only Planet where Metroids even existed, before they were captured by Space Pirates or the GF.

i’d love to watch this video if i didn’t have to hear that asshole’s stupid voice. what a shame
ProjectEchoshadow (1 month ago)
hey so crazy fan theory here Ritos from zelda evolved over time into the Chozo from Metroid. I mean they already evolved from Zoras so this is less of a stretch anyways. Furthermore we know Zoras tended to make special armours to give others similar abilities to them. very spiritual being who were often shown as smarter than many other creatures in their area.

Metroid for the switch anyone?
ElliotWorldTV (1 month ago)
I I'm thinking they could call it MetroidX that's probably the title of another Metroid game but I haven't play Metroid yet
Thats gainda weird that game companys like nintendo starts a franchise in 1980 and the graphics of that game are 8bit... and it has a story ok fine but cant you start the game franchise at the 8bit and work your way to HD reality graphics and the story works its way from the 1st game to this day not like" hey lets make this story and 25 years later make a another game with HD graphics but the story starts from that game with better graphics and the game with 8bit graphics can fit in to the middle of the story" yay why things has to be made complicated

Now we're getting Prime 4, rumored to be titled Renegade, which would make sense with Samus now being an enemy to the Federation. Never been more hyped for a game in my life.

Such a well done and perfect masterpiece. You guys really did a great job piecing together every bit of information. Hats off to the creator of this and to all those who helped. This will be my 17th time watching it! Once again, well done guys.

I think personally that Prime 4 will be after Fusion. The switch has been a restart or a reboot for many of its games. Two flagship titles were changed in massive ways (Zelda and Mario). I hope Metroid will get the same treatment. The story after Fusion is set up very interestingly. I want to see what Samus does after she betrayed the Federation, and I want To see how all the different DNA affects her. She has three sets of different genes right now, Chozo, human, and Metroid. The switch has been moving forward for most of its games rather than making a game all about nostalgia (not to say that Zelda and Mario don’t embrace nostalgia). It’s time for them to revolutionize the Metroid series again just like they did in Prime. It would be perfect to set it up after Fusion.

metroid prime 4 will not only save the franchise but it will also hopefully revolutionize it!

So fusion was the last canon game? Huh.

Chinyere Udeh (2 months ago)
This may sound really stupid, cuz I'm a Kirby fan and watching several Metroid videos only recently informed me on the series, but where does her appearance in Kirby's Dreamland 3 fit in? It is likely non-canon, because it would have to have happen before Metroid 2 when all the Metroids were wiped out. Honestly though, I'd at least like Nintendo to nod towards this and tell us what's up with that situation...

RODO125 (2 months ago)
Mother M's story wouldve propably worked if it was the first one in all the story. Then: -Samus following orders could be a sign of inexperience and self-doubt, and an obstacle to overcome as she learns to be a self sufficient warrior. -Instead of being authorized to use equipment in already in her possesion, she could be given chozo technology the federation had found prior to meetung samus, and only now have learned to use through her power armor. -Samus PTSD attacks would be justified, as they would be happening closer to the traumatic event, she hadnt beaten ridley yet, and was lacking the confidence she posseses later in the series. -Instead of being weirdly downgrading and character breaking, it could be an empowering story about Samus gaining agency, and it could show the audience a more human side to Samus during her early years as a hunter, and how she came to be the badass she is now through a videogame, and not the manga.

Jeremy Higgins (3 months ago)
Watching this video two years later and getting hyped about where in the timeline Prime 4 is going to fit.
Brett (3 months ago)
I think it's important to mention that the X parasite's main predator was the Metroid, and because Samus killed all the Metroids in Metroid II, the X parasite was able to grow and multiply into the threat that it was in Fusion.
Metroid Prime Echoes is the best part of the story.
Fox (3 months ago)
I say enough with Ridley always having to be the bad guy, he should be given a reason to why he did what he did and more than the lazy “because greed” or “he’s just evil” he’s an extremely intelligent living being and should be treated as such in the story. Another thing that’s always bugged me is that Ridley never once speaks in any of the games but clearly he can as we see him speaking in the comics! Now that Samus has pissed off the ruling government in the galaxy and obviously they will be coming for her I believe it’s time that her and Ridley get past their differences and make peace! They have basically become the two most hated individuals by the ruling government body after all and working together would only benefit both at this point!

I want to get into the Metroid series. I really do. But with all this lore, and backstory... I feel like I wouldn't be able to fully enjoy the games, nor understand whats going on :(
John Doe (3 months ago)
Other M is such a shame to this series. Samus ultimately does nothing, has no character development, and all of her 'accomplishments' are done by someone else. * The Metroid Queen kills Ridley * The GF kills MB * Adam kills all the metroids just because he thought there was a possibility they might be immune to ice (which is even worse in hindsight, since Samus Returns shows us that it is entirely possible to kill metroids with only missiles and super missiles). * The Deleter... is a thing that happens I guess, until he just dies without any resolution to his plot. * Samus doesn't even get to confront the Galactic Federation leader at the end about his crimes, Anthony just sort of appears and handwaves everything. We don't even know if the leader paid for his crimes. For all we know, he could have just had Anthony killed, since apparently that's what they sent a 'Deleter' for. God, it even ruins Adam in Fusion. His 'perfect military mind' got his entire crew and HIMSELF killed, when he should have known there was a traitor among them, since he can see through their helmets. But instead of telling Samus and his crew, he just... doesn't. And then he sacrifices himself for a slight possibility, instead of just, I don't know, blowing up the jetissoned sector with the spaceships with tons of lasers. Is it at least better in Japanese or something? I've heard the game was better received there but I don't know why.

As you can see from my avatar, Metroid is my favorite game series, and I feel particularly special that it released on my birthday! One year to the day I was born, August 6 1985. It would have been cooler if it was on the actual day I was born, but I'll take one year later still. Great vid!

not to mention all the federation either wants to delete her (by useing the deleter), or saveing her useing metroid goo... then she learns they are breeding metroid (aka how they could save more people the same way) and that made her turn against them... how does this even story?

This video came out 13 days before Federation Force. Why not include it in the timeline? While it may not have been "vital", but Federation Force bridges Prime 3 Corruption and Return of Samus.

Christopher Sopeju (4 months ago)
Let's be honest there is no way that the federation doesn't have extra metroid DNA, x DNA and samples of phazon. In metroid 5 they are coming after Samus and I'm calling it right now. Dark Sa-x a creature so powerful not only is it living phazon, it can copy any living beings abilities and it can absorb energy. The three great races have to get back together, she knows where 2 of them are she just has to find the Chozo

Metroid Prime 4.... If there are no Metroids left, but Samus is now part Metroid due to the serum she was given in Fusion... Does this make her the new "Metroid Prime?"

Samus Returns MAY have retconned Other M out of existence. It very subtly implies a different origin for the frozen Ridley in Fusion, while confirming the Prime games are canon at the same time. He still has some of his Meta Ridley enhancements during the fight at the end. He leaves those behind after the battle. A hornoad is shown playing with them, and then getting infected by the X. It's very possible that the X copied Ridley using genetic material left on those parts. This means...Other M is probably not canon (which is a good thing). So...Adam existed, but we no longer know anything about him other than that Samus once served in the Federation under him.
