The original Metroid was influenced by two other major franchises: , from which it borrowed extensive areas of platform jumping, and , from which it borrowed non-linear exploration. A recurring upgrade is the Morph Ball, which allows Samus to curl into a ball, roll into tight places and plant bombs.
