An Energy Capsule is an item in the Metroid series that replenishes the energy of Samus' Power Suit. They appear as floating orbs and can be collected by touching them. Energy Capsules are released by killed enemies and the various storage containers of the game worlds.

The amount of energy restored on collecting one depends on its type, which is usually indicated by its color or size; and in different games, different colors restore different amounts, as follows:

Generally, capsules that restore more energy are more likely to be released when Samus's suit is low on power.

  • In the Super Metroid comic, during a Space Pirate ambush, Armstrong Houston throws Samus an Energy Capsule to refill her health. He explained that he gave it to her because it "wouldn't have done any good for him", indicating his armor cannot repair damage with energy. In the manga, the strips She Finds a Small O and She Finds a Big O feature Samus killing a Geemer, with an Energy Capsule being left behind. Samus admires its roundness before trying to touch it, however, it disappears.
