I've been asked many times about the Samus Aran papercraft that we've posted before and often times they refer to her as Metroid. Hopefully, this post should clear things up a bit. Metroid refers to the gelatinous flying creatures first found on planet SR388 that closely resemble a jellyfish (pictured above), they are said to drain the lifeforce of anything they come in contact with. This Metroid papercraft was made by Charles Bradbury and Shinigami.
