Samus Aran Specific Tips

  • With Samus, you can get to any height by bomb jumping. To bomb jump, lay a bomb, then lay another right before the first one explodes.
    • You can bomb jump diagonally, if you move slightly to the left or right while bombing.
    • You can "spider ball" on ceilings by bomb jumping horizontally; mastering this can be tricky.
    • If you hit an invisible block while bomb jumping, it will not be triggered until your bomb hits it.
    • You can unmorph in the middle of a bomb jump and shoot stuff; mastering this can be tricky.
    • Set a bomb immediately when descending from peak of jump, then jump again for extra height.
    • You can bomb jump from left to right to left to right (or vice versa) and so forth.
  • Don't try to use the Screw Attack on grounded enemies, it will cancel before you hit them.
  • On amphibious Cheep Cheep levels, continuously move and shoot up. This will prevent most Cheep Cheeps from hitting you on their way down.
  • Choose wisely which beam you want to use: Wave Beam or Freeze Beam?
    • The Wave Beam allows Samus to do maximum damage and its wave motion is effective against swarms of enemies.
    • The Freeze Beam is not as powerful as the Wave Beam, but is used to strategically get way through levels by changing enemies into platforms.

Original Game

Samus Aran is from Metroid for the NES.

Differences From Metroid

[*]In Super Mario Bros. Crossover while performing a jump from a running start (sommersaulting) letting go of the left/right key in midair will halt Samus's horizontal momentum. In the original game Samus's running jump mechanics are similiar to Bills. In other words Samus should keep on moving horizontally unless she collides with terrain, changes direction in midair, or falls to the same horizontal level she started the jump from, in which case she uncoils herself and starts falling normally.
