Samus is said to have an Infrared Ray Scope in the manual for Metroid II: Return of Samus.

This predates the introduction and use of her X-Ray Scope, and may be the basis for the Thermal Visor.


"Allows Samus to see, even in the dark."


  • Despite the description saying Samus can see in the absolute darkness, this is false. Some dark areas in the Metroid games are completely unviewable, including a pitch-black scene in Return of Samus itself. It is possible this was meant to be an upgrade in the game that was later scrapped.
