The following is a list of the 10 trophies from the Metroid series which appear in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Normal order[edit]

# Name Image First Game / Move Description
10 Samus Aran Samus Trophy Melee.png Metroid
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] Samus Trophy (Smash).png 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] Samus Trophy (Smash 2).png 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 upward in a series of spins that doubles as a recovery move. Samus can also use her Bombs to perform Bomb Jumps.
109 Screw Attack Screw Attack Trophy Melee.png Metroid
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.
182 Kraid Kraid Trophy.png Metroid
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.
183 Chozo Statue Chozo Statue Trophy.png Metroid
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.
231 Samus Unmasked Samus Unmasked Trophy.png Metroid
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.
232 Samus's Starship Samus' Ship Trophy Melee.png 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.
233 Metroid Metroid Trophy Melee.png Metroid
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.
234 Ridley Ridley Trophy Melee.png Metroid
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.

The Ceres Space Colony's sprite used on the Metroid's shell.
  • The Metroid trophies claim that the original Metroid was released in 1989, but it was actually released in 1987 in North America.
  • 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 the Mario & Yoshi trophy.
    • As no such events occurred outside of Japan, it is otherwise unobtainable without hacking.
  • The Samus Unmasked trophy is shown from behind by default.
  • The Metroid trophy has part of Ceres Space Colony, where the Metroid hatchling was kept in Super Metroid, reflected on its shell.
