- Samus finds an egg which hatches, and a little baby metroid emerges and clings to Samus, thinking she’s its mother
- After making her way to SR388’s surface (the player controls this), Samus hops into her ship with the metroid hatchling, the screen fades out and the ending theme starts.
- Samus is shown on the right side of the screen, in her armor, running toward the player (but in place), with a star-filled background. The credits start scrolling on the left.
- The credits end, and away we go…
