Metroid "Sightings"

Postby mental » 07.20.08 10:42pm

IE Edit: Since the two threads are very similar, let's make this the official thread for posting anything NON-GAME RELATED that reminds you of Metroid; be it an actual direct reference to the games, or an indirect one that you found amusing. Carry on!


Anyone out there have a favorite picture or other representation out there of something which isn't Metroid-related, but which manages to capture the way you imagine something in the Metroid universe, even if it doesn't agree with the official art?

For example, the dying bird-man in this picture is very much the way I imagine Chozo to look (except perhaps Chozo would have more feathers): http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/90442395/

This does not include gaming websites, fan videos, 'official' commercials, official advertisements or conversations with friends. When you see mine below you will have a better understanding of what I mean.

House MD: Season 1 Episode 3 Occam's Razor:

In this episode, we find House playing his GBA and none other then Metroid Zero Mission. Only problem is, the sound coming from the device is from Space Invaders and he talks about the game being about space monkeys and how he has reached level 4, obvious factual mistake on this one.

So what have you?

Good idea for a thread, Mental! I don't have anything to contribute at the moment, but I would like to mention a sighting of an old sci fi paperback novel (late '90s) that had a female warrior and a bird warrior on the cover that definitely looked Metroid-esque. If anything particularly unusual pops up, who knows...it might make its way into the features section :)

Metroid radio

This is a radio in a scene from the HBO show, "Carnivale."
Highly doubtful that it was intentional, but it's cool nevertheless. My gf posted this up last year.

This is sort of an obvious one, but if the skeksis from The Dark Crystal were healthier and less rotted looking, they'd look just like my image of chozo.

Garthim.

I didn't think they looked like space pirates (aside from the claws). However, they do look like the type of creature that might appear in Metroid.

I hope you're not next going to post an Ice Berg, saying it's like Noxus, and then a Sniper Rifle, for Trace.
