Trivia

Endings

Just like in the original, Metroid II has different ending screens depending on how long it took you to beat the game. If you finish it in over 5 hours you get Samus running towards you; if you finish it in 3-5 hrs she jumps and then stays still facing you; and if you beat the game in under 3 hours she jumps like before but when she lands she appears without the armor and dressed in nothing but a tank-top and a thong.

Metroid

As of 2007, this is only Metroid game to feature all six stages of a Metroid's lifecycle: Infant, Alpha, Gamma, Zeta, Omega and Queen.
