The Varia Suit (referred to simply as Varia in Metroid and Metroid II: Return of Samus and Varia Feature in Metroid: Other M) is a Power Suit upgrade. The name is a mistranslation of the word "barrier" (interestingly, the Metroid II manual uses Barrier Suit anyway), pertaining to its usefulness; the Varia Suit reduces damage taken, nullifies damage from Acid, slightly increases speed, and protects Samus Aran from extreme heat and sub-zero temperatures. Samus is most commonly depicted wearing this suit, but like many of her other upgrades, it is lost at or prior to the beginning of most games, requiring her to track the upgrade down at a later point in time. The maximum temperature that the Varia Suit can protect against is unknown, but the Gravity Suit is generally required for some of the higher temperature liquids.
