Hm. He's been dead for some time, so there was nothing Samus could've done. Pity. This means that there was a previous team sent in to do what Samus arrived there for.

I always felt bad for that random dude and wondered who the heck he was. Poor random guy. :( Awesome drawing though. :D The little roach things are sufficiently creepy, and yet somehow cute. :XD:

Super Metroid is Boss. Interesting that this gave a hint to the design of the GF Trooper.

In the first Metroid game, it was said the Galactic Police and Galactic Army were sent to Zebes to fight the Space Pirates but they all failed.

Perhaps this poor soul is the only remnant left of those ill fated solders. His corpse continued to rot for years until found by Samus.

Oh god... I absolutely hate roaches... But they fit so well in Super Metroid, along with the other creepy crawlers.

On a side note, weren't these little bastards also in Metroid Fusion? The things that float left and right, and you can use them as platforms by freezing them, but can't even damage them? They look similar...

These things?

Those are called Rippers.

As far as I know, these particular critters only appear in Super Metroid and can be seen crawling around the walls of Crateria, the dead guy you find right before Kraid, and on the crashed ship before you defeat Phantoon. [link]

There's a silver armored corpse in Super Metroid right before you go fight Kraid. I tried to keep the look faithful to the original sprite. [link]

I always did wonder what that corpse was. It was never ever explained who or what that thing is, so I always assumed it was Armstrong from the Nintendo Power comic :/

From what I see...it looks almost like a Galactic Federation trooper, based upon the designs they had during the Metroid Prime series.

At the very least the helmet looks like the ones from Prime 2...but that's just me.

Ah, I see...makes sense. I took a look at the sprite not too long ago and then realized that's probably what you meant >_<

I should play Super Metroid again, come to think of it :3

The work those roaches do is absolutely grotesque but oh so fitting and creepy. You really captured the spine-chilling and terrifying mood that these Metroid creatures can accomplish.

.....you don't know Halo? Odd. It's a video game, XBox's flag runner. The player character looks quite similar to this guy. And there is one of these guys dead in S Metroid.

It's a Galactic Marine from the Metroid Prime Series. Surprising you haven't heard of them and confused it for Halo; Metroid Prime seems to be one of the more popular Metroid games to the general public. :O_o:

I am well aware of the Galactic Marines. But there is a dead character in one area of Super Metroid that is wearing this or similar armor. No explanation is given for its presence, but it's there. I didn't really think this was Master Chief, I was joking, because they look similar.
