Nice little easter egg found in Smash Ultimate. Apparently you can freeze the Metroid assist trophy and destroy the Metroid if you have access to a freezing weapon of any kind. There are 4 characters in the game that have freezing attacks: Lucas, Ice Climbers, Mr. Game & Watch, and Hero.
All other characters can use the Freezie item (pictured) and throw it at the Metroid. After being frozen, Samus takes 4 normal Missiles or 3 Super Missiles to destroy it.
Props to Jon Cartwright of GameXplain for bringing this cool easter egg to light.
