Most Metroid games have featured endings that are received based on difficulty level, game completion, and/or play time. Metroid Prime Pinball and Metroid: Other M do not feature endings in the traditional sense, although Zero Suit Samus is playable during the countdown in the latter.
It is tradition for Samus to remove her Power Suit and reveal her true self in the Justin Bailey, Ending Outfit or Zero Suit in the best endings, which also say "See you next mission" when the item percentage and completion time are displayed.
Samus runs throughout the credits, jumps high, and lands, with either one of these events occuring.
Samus will either remain suited, flip up her helmet or remove her Power Suit entirely, and then jump up offscreen, before falling down and firing a blast.
Samus, in her Unnamed Suit, will be shown in various poses, before one of the following ending pictures appears:
The Japanese versions contains an additional set of endings that show images of Samus' past rather than the adult Samus in revealing attire. These are shown when the game is cleared with Child Mode. Linking to Metroid: Zero Mission with the Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance Cable will unlock all endings, including Japanese-only endings, and an additional two new endings, for a special gallery.
In addition, these two endings are present with the gallery in Zero Mission, and cannot be found in Fusion.
Metroid: Zero MissionEdit
Samus will stand against a space background in various poses before clenching her fist. Each ending, upon acquisition, will be added to a gallery in the menu. The endings for Metroid Fusion can be unlocked by linking the two games with the Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance Cable.
Samus will appear out of nowhere when it appears she had been lost in the destruction of Phaaze. She then heads to SkyTown, Elysia to mourn her fallen comrades before heading off into the unknown. Meanwhile, a mysterious spacecraft appears and follows Samus. The identity of this craft's pilot was confirmed to be Sylux from Metroid Prime Hunters at E3 2015. Kensuke Tanabe, the producer of the Metroid Prime series, expressed interest in creating a future Prime game which continues the rivalry between Samus and Sylux. This game would involve the Galactic Federation, whose role is to be expanded upon in Metroid Prime: Federation Force.
As stated, there are no traditional endings in Other M. However, Samus will congratulate the player in voiceover on the item percentage screen. Depending on their final percentage, these messages are heard:
- "Well done!" (25%-50%)
- "Good job!" (51%-75%)
- "Excellent!" (76%-99%)
- "Perfect! Congratulations!" (100%)
- Some endings may have been inspired by that of Alien and Aliens, films which heavily influenced Metroid. At the end of both films, the female protagonist, Ripley, is scantily clad as she prepares for hypersleep.
- The Super Metroid ending is mirrored in Samus' congratulations montage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. In one scene, Samus is seen jumping up offscreen, and falling back down in her Zero Suit form, clad in her Ending Outfit from Fusion.
