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.

Nightmare (c) Nintendo.

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.

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.

Nicely drawn, it looks like the actual sprite. This guy causes a lot of trouble at the monthly conference; he got put in Other M because he kept whining about "waste of a perfectly character" and stuff like that. He shut up after Other M, thankfully...

And I hope he will stay quiet too. Don't get me wrong, I love Nightmare, but overusing a character will take the excitement away when facing them. So I think two times is enough for him.

Nah. Other M was okay to me. The boss fights were kick ass. Never suspected Phatoon to return from Super Metroid and it was a complete bitch.

The gameplay was great but I couldn't stand the fact they made Samus speak.
Reply
:iconvexzem:
Vexzem Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2012
I don't mind that. I mean, Samus did narrate herself in Fusion just in text so she does speak. Only this game made it happen. At least be thankful that the voice actor didn't suck at portraying her and sound horrible like those PKMN anime voice actors now. ^^;
Reply
:icongreen042:
Green042 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, yes, but she didn't speak with an actual voice and that's what bothered me with other m.

I don't know how the pokemon voice actors sounds like, I stopped watching that show long time ago when I realized how bad it got. Also, I suspect you talk about the american dub, which I never watched.

But I actually think that she did a pretty bad job at voice acting Samus.
But maybe I just think that since I'm such a fangirl of the quiet and mysterious Metroid Prime games. -u-

That thing creeped me out so much when I was a kid. DX
Especially since you couldn't kill it, so if you saw it, the only thing you could do was to run and hope that it wouldn't catch up with you.
For being a GBA game, Fusion is actually pretty scary. I love that.
