Nightmare by Green042 Nightmare by Green042
My favorite boss from one of my favorite games, Metroid Fusion.
It wasn't the creepiest boss in the game in my opinion but still... he's awesome.

And I wanted to have slime coming out from his "eyes" but I couldn't make it look good so I had to skip it.


I liked the metroid bosses from the older games, they were monsters and some of them looked really creepy. Now, it feels like it's just bounty hunters and a Samus clone.

One thing Metroid Fusion nailed perfectly was the sci-fi/horror aspect of the series, and nowhere was this made clearer than with Nightmare.  I remember the first time I played it, I seriously didn't want to play anymore because it was weirding me out so much.  Not to mention, it actually sounds and looks like it's in pain when you hurt it, like it doesn't want to do this either.

Fusion was the most scary Metroid game I've played and I love it for that very reason. Even though Nightmare is freaky, with that expressionless mask falling off revealing the grotesque creature who were behind it, I really thought SA-X was scarier.

As soon as she spotted you you had no other choice but to run. You can't fight her, all you can do is run. And when I played the game for the first time and didn't know where she was going to spawn I felt a bit insecure throughout the entire game, not knowing when or where she was going to appear.

Fusion is a great game. I should play it again.

Thanks! C:
Would it be alright if I used this picture as the background for a Nightmare (Metroid Fusion) Remix in one of my Youtube accounts' (s0c01da116utz31dav1d) upcoming videos, So Cold 10 Metroid Remixes Video II? I promise to give you credit, and also to provide a link to this picture if you so desire. I also promise to post a link here once I've finished it.

Nice job.
