Metroid Prime Sequence Breaking/Speed Tricks

Ever since Samus Aran started her journey through the galaxy, players around the world have been looking for ways to play the series their own way. Get items way sooner than they were designed to be collected, even skip bosses altogether. And just generally tear the game apart and in some cases, almost play it back to front!

It's a talent (and it very much is that) that has been given to many inquisitive metroid gamers. This section is devoted to such discoveries that have allowed Metroid Prime to be totally spun on it's head. Whether or not any of these were designed or left in intentionally by Retro and Nintendo is debetable, but regardless, it has injected a new lease of life into the game.
