Morph Ball. It's the single most important upgrade in the series. The entire series would have ended immediately had that item not been right next to that first elevator.

"Well poop. No way am I crawling through that passage. Whatever is down there gets a pass this time."

Funny the morph ball came about because they couldn't animate Samus crawling on the NES.

Plus it gave Sakamoto and Okuda a chance to screw with players' expectations.
Start game, walk to the right just like every other '85-era NES game, get stuck.

That actually is funny.

Screw attack in MP2. Crossing chasms was glorious.

Though my favorite ability was from an enemy in MP2 who could shut down Samus' suit and force her to reboot the OS.

Oh right, I remember that.
I forgot what that's called.
I think it was a special type of Ing.

I like Samus' ability to wear a Zero Suit.
