Door m

A Door Jump is a glitch in the original Metroid game that allowed Samus to jump inside of doors and walls. It is commonly used to find Secret Worlds.[1] It is also used for Sequence Breaking; for example, the Ice Beam can be collected without the Bombs by using this glitch.[2]

A variation of the Door Jump is also featured in Super Metroid, where it is most useful for getting to Tourian without killing a single Space Pirate commander. It is also useful for avoiding the encounter with the Big Metroid and the fight with Mother Brain, though Samus still must escape Zebes.[1]

How to performEdit

You need ball form to perform this. Rapidly morphing in and out of ball form gives you a small lift off the ground.

A Door Jump is performed by doing the following steps:

  1. Open a door.
  2. Let the door close on Samus.
  3. Rapidly press the A button and down on the directional pad. Press down first then jump to aid ascension. [3]
  4. Once above the door, jump a bit to gain some distance.
  5. Repeat Step 3.

If the player messes up while in the wall they will be stuck in the wall until they die or resets the game. If the player messes up while they are still in the door they can press left or right (which side the door is on doesn't matter) to get out.
