 My wish is that this "Ending FAQ" will encourage other FAQ authors to include
 the endings of the games in their FAQs.
 A lot of people actually get interested in reading the ending, even if they
 have beaten the game before.
 So far the only people interested in doing ending faqs are the ones that make
 the Neo Geo fighting games faqs and the ones that do the Capcom fighting games
 faqs, other than those......
 I, for one, am a fan of game endings.

 3)The endings from myself:

  After defeating Mother brain, The wall behind her desintegrates and a door
  will appear, you will get the message "Time bomb set, get out fast!".
  After this door, is a long vertical corridor. As you reach the top, there is
  an elevator to the surface. At the surface you get the message
  "Great!! You fulfiled your mission.
  It will revive pece in space. But, it may be invaded by the other Metroid.
  Pray for a true peace in space!" Then Samus will reveal her true self by removing
  her suit and staying in a one piece bathing suit.
  The credits will roll and at the very end it will say "The End".
  If you beat Mother Brain without wearing the suit, after you get to the surface,
  Samus will then change from the one piece bathing suit to a two piece bikini,
  after that the credits will roll as usual.


  The endings from the Metroid Database:
  If you beat the game under 3 hours Samus armor disappears,
  revealing the hunter to be a woman. She's wearing a purple leotard and has
  brown hair.
  If you beat the game between 3 and 5 hours Samus helmet disappears,
  still revealing her secret identity by showing her with long brown hair,
  though still wearing her armor.
  If you beat the game in over 5 hours Samus raises her fist in victory,
  but the armor stays put.
  If you beat the game in over 5 hours with armorless Samus, she flashes and
  turns her back toward you and her arm thrown over her face in shame.
  If you beat the game under 3 hours with armorless Samus she is already without
  her armor; she flashes, and when she's done she is wearing only a purple bikini.

 3)The endings from myself and Rich:

  After defeating Mother Brain, the wall behind her will explode and the
  message "Time Bomb Set! Escape Immediately!" will appear, go through the
  door and you will have to go through a number of vertical and horizontal
  corridors while facing Space Pirates along the way. Near the surface you
  will have the option of rescuing the animals you found during the adventure.
  After that, go to the surface and board the ship. You will then see the
  Zebes exploding and the ship flying out of the planet in the nick of time.
  If you rescued the animals you will see a small dot escaping the planet's
  explosion just as Samus escapes with her ship.
  It will then say "The operation was completed successfully", it shows you
  the time it took you to clear the game. The credits will roll and after a
  while you will see Samus glowing in her suit.
  If you managed to complete the game in OVER 10 hours, Samus will just stand
  there, she gives you a thumbs up, jumps back and shoots at the screen, the
  Metroid logo appears on screen and you get the message "See you next mission,
  your rate for collecting items is". The percent you get depends on how many
  items you found.
  If you managed to complete the game between 3 and 10 hours, Samus will take off
  her helmet, she gives you a thumbs up, jumps back and shoots at the screen, the
  Metroid logo appears on screen and you get the message "See you next mission,
  your rate for collecting items is". The percent you get depends on how many
  items you found.
  If you managed to complete the game in UNDER 3 hours, Samus will take off her
  suit and she will be in a black bikini, she lets her hair lose,
  jumps back and shoots at the screen while wearing her armor again,
  the Metroid logo appears on screen and you get the message "See you next mission,
  your rate for collecting items is". The percent you get depends on how
  many items you found.

 3)The endings from CyricZ's Walkthrough:

  -Metroid Prime-
  "Below 75% - Samus leaves the exploding Impact Crater, calls her ship in, and
  hops on top of it before the whole Artifact Chamber blows.  She stares at the
  wrecked chamber for a moment, and the scene cuts as she's about to remove her
  helmet.  End credit roll.  Samus' Gunship flies away from Tallon.
  Congratulatory screen showing Samus with a victory pose and percentage.

  75%-99% - Samus leaves the exploding Impact Crater, calls her ship in, and
  hops on top of it before the whole Artifact Chamber blows.  She removes her
  helmet and stares at the wrecked chamber for a moment, then departs.  End
  credit roll.  Samus' Gunship flies away from Tallon.  Congratulatory screen
  showing Samus with a victory pose and percentage.

  100% - Samus leaves the exploding Impact Crater, calls her ship in, and
  hops on top of it before the whole Artifact Chamber blows.  She removes her
  helmet and stares at the wrecked chamber for a moment, then departs.  End
  credit roll.  Samus' Gunship flies away from Tallon.  Congratulatory screen
  showing Samus without a helmet in victory pose and percentage.  Cut to a scene
  of a undulating blob of Phazon.  A black and red metal hand bursts from the
  Phazon.  An alien eye looks around from the back of the hand..."

  The ending from DantheMann:
  "I believe this to be the second or third ending, but have no evidence...
  Anyway, here it is: You fight Metroid Prime in two stages and then she steals
  your current suit (Phazon Suit) and dies in the most horrible fashion,
  she shakes around very fast and then begins to self-destruct.
  The screen turns black and says: "Self-Destruction Iminate, Evacuate Imediatly"
  Then it showes the Chozo Artifact Center blowing up and you jump onto your ship,
  facing away from the screen, and take your helmet off. Then Samus flies away and
  the Chozo Ruins have blown up. Then the credits role proceeded by your
  status for the game.
  This ending was brought to life with 21:27 hours and 74% Scans Completed."

  The ending from Daniel Haas:
  "ENDING #1: (0%-74%) The metroid prime will go completely INSANE, screaming
  and flipping all over. It will transform into a huge blue blob with a red center,
  no face, and tentacles all over its body(if you wanna call it a body).
  One of its tentacles comes out and latches onto samus's stomach and
  begins pulling her in. She struggles for a moment and the Prime manages to pull
  of her Phazon suit. The prime blob goes insane, again, growing huge and demolishing
  the chamber, as samus runs for her life. A black screen appears, telling you the
  artifact chamber is about to collapse, and you should probably think about
  getting your ass outa there. Samus is teleported out, she presses a couple buttons
  on her arm cannon, and runs for the edge of the platform. Her ship flies over
  and catches her as she's jumping. She stands atop her ship for a couple seconds,
  watching the artifact chamber burn and crumble. She rockets away in her ship.

  ENDING #2 (75%-99%) Everything is the same as above, only as she stands there
  watching the articact chamber burn, she decides to remove her helmet.
  You get to see her head for a while, before she rockets away.

  ENDING #3 (100%) All the same, helmet romoval and all. the only change is that
  after the credits roll, you see a cave with a blob a phazon at the bottom.
  A black and red colored arm reaches out of the phazon, still dripping
  with the stuff. On the back of its hand, a small eye-like thing looks around at
  the cave for a while. END."

  -Metroid-
  After defeating Mother brain, The wall behind her desintegrates and a door
  will appear, you will get the message "Time bomb set, get out fast!".
  After this door, is a long vertical corridor. As you reach the top, there is
  an elevator to the surface. At the surface you get the message
  "Great!! You fulfiled your mission.
  It will revive pece in space. But, it may be invaded by the other Metroid.
  Pray for a true peace in space!" Then Samus will reveal her true self by removing
  her suit and staying in a one piece bathing suit.
  The credits will roll and at the very end it will say "The End".
  If you beat Mother Brain without wearing the suit, after you get to the surface,
  Samus will then change from the one piece bathing suit to a two piece bikini,
  after that the credits will roll as usual.

  Beat Dark Samus with an item percentage collection of 74% and under.

  Beat Dark Samus with an Item Percentage collection between 75% & 99%.

  Beat Dark Samus with an item percentage collection of 100%.


 3)The ending from Eric Otness:

  Dark Samus' 4th form gets hit by the Phazon Beam and a big Phazon explosion
  hits her, Samus has her arm cannon pointed at her collapsed form when suddenly,
  she gets back up on her knees and crawls toward Samus and clawing at her,
  Dark Samus starts to ignite into bluish Phazon-flames, and, judging by the
  look at Samus' eyes through her visor, she seems horrified. Then Dark Samus,
  still on fire, reaches out her hand to try to absorb Samus' Light Suit,
  but before she can even breathe on it, Dark Samus dissolves (or disperses)
  into a billion Phazon molecules. Then Samus's about to go to the blocked
  off exit when an earthquake occurs and two Warrior Ing block her way so she
  turns around and then she's surrounded by 4 Warrior Ing, while more Ing are
  on the way. Then the huge column of Phazon makes a volatile explosion revealing
  a Dimensional Transporter Gate and then the remainder of the Ing Horde surround
  her lunging at her, suddenly Samus jumps resulting with the Ing colliding into each
  other. Then, with the background music in a revamped version of the Ing Battles,
  Samus then runs activating the Scan Visor in the third person view with an Ing
  running next to her to try and stop her, and the gate opens she jumps up the steps,
  she looks back and the Ing hot-tail her, meanwhile at Light Aethers' Hall of the
  Honored Dead, Samus bounces out of the portal in Morph Ball Mode and she unrolls
  herself high in the air and landing in the area where she got the Seeker Missiles
  and then she quickly turns around and sees several Ing legs fighting to get out of
  the portal, screaming the daylights out and then there's the sound of an explosion
  and the screen turns white then black, and then it cuts to the stellar view of Aether
  just like what happened in the middle of the beginning scene of the game except the
  planet slowly stops fluctuating and turns green, then it cuts to several Luminoth
  watching the Energy Controller with the sky flashing and then it turns bright and
  Samus is kneeling, back in her Varia Suit with the Energy Controller closing behind
  her, she stands up, a Luminoth looks and his eyes get big and then does a butler-esque
  bow, and the other Luminoth do the same as Samus goes toward the door you get a
  close-up of her back and holding her hand in the air like she's waving good-bye.
  Then you see her ship take off and fly away and enters hyperspace the credits come
  up and you get a mission final screen with Samus' image sort of like the game over
  screen only without the magnification of her heart when you get 0-74%.

  75-99% it's the same as above, except after she goes through the doorway but
  before launching her gunship she approaches her ship and gets covered in a
  shaft of light and she's in her emergency reserve flight suit first shown in
  Metroid Zero Mission in 3D view, she turns around to the side and her head
  faces the screen.

  100% it's the same as above except after the credits and congratulatory screen
  it shows the Planet Aether and the camera pans to the southwestern part of Aether
  with several Phazon molecules and then they come to each other to form a bright
  whitish-blue human shape.

  The ending from nazguldragon15:
  0% - 74% = After Dark Samus' defeat, it will fall out of the air and onto the ground.
  It will slowly go up to Samus and reach for her Suit, then Dark Samus will vaporize.
  Suddenly, an earthquake will begin and Samus will try to escape to the door, but a wall
  of phazon will cover it.  Several Ing will jump out and start after Samus.
  Dark Aether begins to collapse, an Samus runs for the light Portal while scanning it.
  She will fly through the portal in her Morph Ball and emerge into the Light World.
  From Light Aether's point of view, the Ing will all try to come through the portal,
  kicking and cramming, then the portal will close.  The screen goes to a view of the
  Planet Aether, and the Darkness will disappear, becoming average Aether.
  Samus returns her Light Suit and the Luminoth bid her farewell.  She then goes into
  her ship, and flies off the planet.

  75% - 99% = Everything is the same as the 0% - 74% ending except before entering her
  ship, Samus will take off her entire suit.  She is wearing her infamous blue flight
  suit, and looks rather cartoony.

  100% = Everything is the same as the endings before it except (this happens after
  the credits) Dark Samus will reform in space.

 3)The endings from myself:

  -USA & Europe Version-
  After you beat the Omega Metroid, Samus will get on her ship while the
  station is aligning with SR388's orbit, you escape while you watch the station
  burn and explode on the surface of the Metroid's home planet.
  It then shows Samus on her ship and she starts to say:
  "That perfect military mind... The wisdom of Adam Malkovich continued to serve
  even after death. Until today, I had no idea that the minds of leaders and
  scientists were frequently uploaded to computers.
  My incredible reunion with Adam may have saved the universe...
  But how will the beings of the universe view our resolve? I doubt they will
  understand what we did... The danger we barely averted. They will hold tribunals
  and investigations. They will hold us responsible.
  Adam understood this, and he spoke to me in my anger.
  'Don't worry. One of them will understand. One of them must.'
  I've reflected upon his words, and I see the wisdom in them.
  We are all bound by our experiences. They are the limits of our conciousness.
  But in the end, the human sould will ever reach for the truth...
  This is what Adam tought me. Just one detail still bothers me.
  This ship can only be started manually. Yet, before I faced the Omega Metroid,
  the ship moved on it's own, guided by someone hands. Is it possible? Adam...?"
  Adam replies: "Lady, what's troubling you? You wonder how I started the ship?
  Just think about it. They lent me a hand..." It will then show a pic of the
  animals you rescued, they are asleep.
  Credits will roll and after the credits it will show Samus on her armor,
  she will start to shine and if you beat the game in UNDER 2 hours it will show
  Samus posing in a tank top and a tight short and it will show the time you took
  and the percentage of the items collected.
  If you beat the game between 2 and 4 hours it will show Samus posing with her
  suit on but without the helmet.
  If you beat the game in OVER 4 hours it will show Samus posing with her
  suit on only.
  If you beat the game in UNDER 2 hours but with 100% rate, it will show Samus
  posing with the same half naked clothes but in a different pose and a transparent
  picture of her is shown in the background.
  If you beat the game in OVER 2 hours but with 100% rate it will show Samus half
  naked again but in yet another different pose.

  -Japanese Version-

  "The actual ending with Samus isn't all that special and is pretty much
  the same as it was in the original Smash Bros. game; Master Hand (or
  Bowser, if playing Adventure mode) falls into the background / explodes
  in a spectacular fashion. After your character falls into trophy form on
  a desk, the credits roll, you get treated to a short movie showing
  everyone's favorite bounty hunter using her abilities, concluding with a
  screenshot which varies with the mode you played."

  The endings from Peter Burton:
  When you complete SSBM with Samus on any of the 1-player modes then these
  following things will happen:  You see Samus shooting a missile,
  then she will jumping up a narrow shaft in the adventure level known as
  'Under ground maze', you will then see a close up of Samus shooting her
  fully charged blast.
  Each of the one player modes will have a different final picture,
  they are as follows:

  Classic: Samus will be standing on planet Zebes shooting a missile.

  Adventure:  Samus will be charging through the air with rock in the background
  with the letters CODE RED in red at the bottom.
