Unlock 60 Missiles and 99 Health
These two bonuses can be gained by entering your ship and rolling left to right until both walls are hit once.

If you begin a game by rolling 10 times left to right, followed by doing a flip in the air you will become invincible.

Stalljump Glitch
If you do a directly vertical spinning jump and hold up, Samus stalls in midair. Perfect to use with the screw attack, since most if not all attacks will do absolutely nothing to you during it.

Unlock Endings
When you have a game completion time of 3-5 hours you will get the normal ending of Samus standing still. If you take longer than 5 hours to complete the game you will get the bad ending which will have Samus running in place. If you manage to complete the game in under 3 hours you get the ending with Samus in her bikini.

Unlock Samus in Bikini Ending
When you have beaten the game in under 3 hours Samus will appear in the ending wearing her bikini.

Easy way to beat Queen Metroid
Beating Queen Metriod is simple, and I will guide you to victory!

Alright, first when you drop down the shaft into the Queen's room, she will be dormant. Fire 2 missles at her then prepare to dodge. The queen uses 3 attacks: attacking with her head, biting at you, and firing projectiles. The easiest way to beat her is as follows: When she attacks with her head, start using a spin attack to deflect these shots, along with her ball things.

If you hit her with her mouth open, she will freeze. Roll into a ball and then her mouth. She will unf..

Glitch: Saving with Spider Ball
As you may know, the game doesn't let you save while you are using Spider Ball. However, for a very brief frame at the edges of the save platform, the game will actually allow you to save while using Spider Ball.

Jump onto the platform, ball up and activate Spider Ball, then roll off one end of the save platform, and if you are sharp enough, you may see the "Press Start to Save" message at the bottom of the screen while doing this.

If you can move yourself so that the message remains at the bottom of the screen while using Spider Ball, you can save with it actiavted.

Glitch: Slow upward spin jump
Start by doing a spin jump, but hit Up on the D-Pad immediately after inputting the controls for the spin jump to spin jump upwards, rather than off to the side. From here, while spin jumping straight up, hold A. You will ascend very slowly, then descend slowly for half of the way, before falling back to normal speed again.
