Other M Characters

The Characters menu, showing Adam's information.

The pause menu in Metroid: Other M features a sub-menu for information on its Characters. Throughout the game, details will appear in a subfeature of the pause screen on some characters in the game. A mugshot of a character's face is depicted beside their identity, occupation (known as "Data File" in the game) and details on their whereabouts and status. The details progress on with the story; when a character is confirmed as deceased, a red slash is stricken through their mugshot's face, and their name is listed as "[name]/Deceased". All mugshots are featured at the bottom of the screen, and can be scrolled through.

TriviaEdit

  • Interestingly enough, neither the Head Quarantine Officer nor The Colonel are featured on the sub-menu despite also being crucial characters to the plot and being encountered in the game. The other characters to not have biographies are Ian Malkovich, due to his death many years ago and only appearance in the game being in a flashback, and of course, Samus Aran.
  • Despite Ian lacking a place in the menu, there is evidence of a face graphic for him in the data of the game, not used because his model is present only in a cutscene. It is currently unknown if the graphic itself is present in the data.[1]
  • The characters sub-menu uses identities known at their respective times and details as well. For example, it is inconsistent when it lists Anthony as deceased and when MB is referred to as Madeline Bergman.
  • Characters whose identities are initially unknown have "Identity Unknown" listed in their name data. All soldiers except for Anthony and Adam are listed with this at the beginning of the game and remain so until after Adam's briefing of the 07th Platoon. The reason for this may be that Samus has never encountered any of them before, or she is unsure of their identities.
  • All soldiers but Adam are shown wearing their helmets with the visor up. This is true even before the briefing, when Adam has his off. This presumably foreshadows Samus' eventual return to the BOTTLE SHIP to retrieve it.
  • K.G. Misawa is listed in a similar manner to the other deceased soldiers, as his profile names him "K.G. Misawa/Missing", although he lacks the red slash through his face that the deceased men do. This is because Samus does not realize that K.G. is deceased.
  • Despite her codename really being MB, she is referred to by her nickname Melissa Bergman in her profile after her death.
  • During the Desbrachian battle, the profiles for Madeline and MB do not change until the post-credits.
