Samus's neutral special move, Charge Shot, and her grab, Grapple Beam, both come from this game. In addition, the homing missiles in her side special move come from this game.


While the Brinstar Depths stage technically came from the original Metroid, its appearance comes from Super Metroid, as Kraid appears in his giant form.


"Theme of Samus Aran, Space Warrior" and "Vs. Ridley" come from this game. "Theme of Samus Aran, Space Warrior" is an orchestral remix of the music that plays during the opening and credits of this game. "Vs. Ridley" is the song that plays when facing Ridley.
