List of SSBM trophies (Metroid series)
- This article is about Metroid trophies in Melee. For Metroid trophies in Brawl, see here. For links to all trophies, see List of trophies.
Most trophies ("figures" or "figurines" in Japan) in Super Smash Bros. Melee can be obtained through the lottery (labeled as random in how to unlock). Other trophies, particularly those of playable characters and their smashes, can be obtained by playing Classic Mode, Adventure Mode, and All-Star Mode respectively. Trophies can also be obtained by completing several challenges. There are 293 trophies in all in Melee, some which tend to be rarer than others.
The following is a list of the ten trophies from the Metroid series which appear in Melee.
|#||Name||Image||First Game / Move||Description|
|This intergalactic bounty hunter's full name is Samus Aran. Clad in a Power Suit made by the Chozo race and infused with their enhanced blood, she cleared the planet Zebes of a Metroid infestation. Samus is an orphan, the sole survivor of a Space Pirate raid that destroyed an Earth colony named K-2L.|
|11||Samus Aran [Smash]||B: Charge Shot
Smash B: Missile
|Samus has an abundance of projectile weapons, making her a long-distance attack specialist. The most powerful weapon in her arsenal is her Charge Shot, but be warned: it can be reflected. Her missiles have homing capabilities, but when fired as Smash Attacks, they fly on a straight trajectory and have boosted power.|
|12||Samus Aran [Smash]||Up & B: Screw Attack
Down & B: Bomb
|While Samus's arsenal of missile weapons is indeed formidable, her enemies are in for a rude awakening if they guard against nothing else. Her Grappling Beam captures foes and latches on to walls, and the Screw Attack drags foes upwards in a series of spins that doubles as a recovery move. Samus can also use her Bombs to perform Bomb Jumps.|
|One of Samus Aran's power-ups from the original Metroid, the Screw Attack turns a jump into a rotating attack move. When carrying this item, any character's ordinary jump move will turn into a Screw Attack. By the same token, if you throw this item at an enemy, your foe will spontaneously do a Screw Attack.|
|A boss enemy from Metroid. Kraid lives in the depths of Brinstar. He immobilizes enemies with his three red eyes, and his powerful jaws can crush anything. He can also shoot the three spikes in his belly; it's said he often fires them at his prey. Once Samus defeated Ridley and Kraid, the way to Tourian opened.|
|These statues, which provide power-ups to Samus and have some connection with her Power Suit, have been found in many places, most notably Zebes. The Chozo boasted the most advanced civilization in their galaxy. Some say that when they could advance no further, they chose to withdraw and observe other life forms.|
|230||Samus's Starship||Metroid II: Return of Samus
|This compact ship is used by Samus as her base of operations. Of course, Samus can't fly it into the catacombs of every planet she visits, so she leaves it on the surface as her sanctuary. Samus can recharge her Power Suit inside the ship, so it tends to be the only safe and secure spot on inhospitable alien terrain.|
|A parasitic life form that can absorb all types of energy, Metroids have strong resistance to most conventional weaponry. To defeat them, Samus Aran had to freeze them with Ice Beam shots and then blast them with missiles. Mochtroids, which look like Metroids, are weaker, with fewer internal nuclei.|
|The head of the Space Pirates on Zebes, Ridley soars through space on wicked wings. Ridley may look like a mindless monster, but he's actually quite intelligent. After the SR-388 incident, where Samus captured the infant Metroid, Ridley took the Space Academy by storm, annihilating the complex and taking the Metroid back.|
|It's said that the orphaned Samus Aran was raised by the few survivors of the Chozo race. They armed her with a Power Suit and taught her the ways of advanced combat; even burdened with her heavy suit, Samus is as graceful as a butterfly. In the Metroid series, it was standard that Samus would remove her helmet and armor if you cleared the game fast enough.|
- The Metroid trophies claim that the original Metroid was released in 1989, but it was released in 1986.
- The Samus Unmasked trophy could not be attained in-game via normal means; the only way to obtain it was to attend events in real life that would write the trophy onto Melee's save data, along with Mario & Yoshi.
- As no such events occurred outside of Japan, it is unobtainable in North America without hacking, and it was completely removed in the PAL version of Melee.
