Metroid is a series of games made by Nintendo, and was largely based on the Alien film franchise. The main character is Samus Aran. As a child she was orphaned by the space pirate Ridley and raised by a tribe of bird-like creatures called the Chozo. She was infused with their blood and received their warrior training, and when she came of age, received her Power Suit. While earlier games in the series dealt with story-lines focusing on the eponymous creatures called metroids, later games would focus on a corrupting substance called Phazon. The developer of the later games, Austin Texas' Retro Studios, have described Phazon in terms of corruption. The series has also been adapted into a manga.

The series was created by Gunpei Yokoi, famous for creating the Game and Watch and the Game Boy.
