Metroid: Zero Mission (メトロイドゼロミッション) is a remake of Metroid, making it chronologically the first game in the Metroid series and replacing Metroid in the canon. It was designed to "retell the story of Samus Aran's original mission".

Zero Mission was developed by Nintendo's internal team, Nintendo Research & Development 1, under the direction of Yoshio Sakamoto. Zero Mission features the same plot as the original Metroid, but is slightly modified with the addition of new areas. It marks the first appearance of Zero Suit Samus.

In the Super Smash Flash series

Like in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Zero Suit Samus's design in Super Smash Flash 2 is based on her appearance in this game. Her emergency pistol, renamed as Paralyzer, Samus uses throughout certain portions, also come from this game.
