Pokemon Multiverse EXPLAINS ALL! ►►

It's the age-old question, one of the biggest mysteries of our time: WHO are the animals in Metroid and should you SAVE them or LET THEM DIE?! Today I'm tackling this intense question with science and some deep lore from Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion to figure out who these little guys are and why they're even there in the first place. Only then can we figure out whose side they're really on!

HEY pokemon aren't aliens
Chespin126 Michael
Well I'm pretty sure they don't have the X Parasite because they would have been killed by the Metroids already
Jarmak Bautista
i don't take this as cannon because remeber what happened in metroid prime 3
Totally not a weird guy
If we kill them,

We saves "thoses" frames.

There's one fatal flaw in your theory, MatPat: they were checked by Adam and came out clean!

Either way, save the animals because if Samus doesn't she'll end up in a doomed timeline.
all AGDQ people should watch this xD

Sooooo glad the RSPCA isn't like PETA or the UK would be hell
Maria kanashvili

PETA = People Eat Tasty Animals
Jordan Pijnenburg
Should have released this during AGDQ, MatPat. Would've been clicky gold.
damn you should be a deffense attorney or something like that senpai-pat
Well I don't care. The virus make the host more intelligent and well there's no deadly effects the virus has so why kill them? They're just smarter than normal what's wrong with that?
LikeableVideo Productions
Anyone notice the 'e' in Peta looks like Euler's number?
Brandon Scates
This is all well and good until you remember that Adam the computer acctually scans the animals in fusion and says that they are not carrying the x virus
Wendigo Dragon
"There is no way to not offend anyone on the Internet anymore!"
1. You haven't realized this already?
2. That's a double negative.
Let's see how wrong he is this time. Oh... Oh... wow he f*** up here. Like, REALLY bad. I don't like to be rude, but you did pretty bad on this one, I appreciate the effort, but how much research did you do?
Richard Gibson
Unsub because descpsin!
Anthony Tejada
are you sure those are animals
James Oihus
It's just for fun
Uber Darklord
she is just a bounty Hunter. a lot of her jobs is just get payed, complete the mission. it really isnt her fault
what happened to " I confirmed that they are not X hosts and gave them a berth" ?
ow yeh sa-x saves sames show yeh more evidence
Nafereus kortex
THIS IS WHAT I MISSED i dont even play metroid
Master Y1
you know if the animals were X in the Super metroid then that would mean that all the pirates are X but their not because every time you "kill" an enemy the X make an atempt to escape by turning into their true form but none of that in super metroid.
Shadow Warrior
Shawn Brown
this theroy is bullshit
Papucu Gangster
I bet the 2K dislikes exists only because of that 1 emoji
Jesse Massimo
I like the theory, but I don't understand why the X would let Samus destroy the planet (SR-388) and the station? I mean they had Samus kill all the Metroid why give up the home-based breeding ground? I mean they did escape with salmon but they would have to start all over again?
Jordan Johnson
Does that mean Kirby has the x parisite
Snew Stew
What does canon mean
leah ryan
I still hate peta
Kevin Rodríguez
Sorry, but for the first time I have to say that this theory is coooomplete bullshit
Vance Biondo
listen c3po im MEGAMAN HERE
Carsten Wojciechowski
So then what about the ship? It was not stated to have organic parts so it couldn't be infected like the guard robot you fight against.
And the KI clearly stated in the game that a scan for an x infection was not positive and THEREFORE it let the animals aboard.
So this theory overlooked a thing stated in the game making it canon.

What about Adam, the computer on Samus' ship, confirming they weren't hosting the x-virus?
Michael Nyamkhuu
to stop you wasting 14 min the alien animals on the planet ZEBBETH are infected and if you save them they will infect the ewhole universe
justin frank
WTF DO YOU MEAN IT'S NOT EXPLAINED WHY THE X ARE ON THE SPACE STATION. you clearly didn't even play metroid fusion because if you did you would also know that affter you save them the computer scans them and proves that they aren't infected. but hey what ever gets those clicks right?
Ahmed Falahy
It's awesome how everyone focuses on the animals and forget the REAL THREAT: The Galactic Federation.

For those who played Metroid Other M and Fusion would know that those douchebags are up to no good and are using Samus as a tool for their evil ends.

I wonder when Samus would wake up and smell the coffee? Hell, I won't even be surprised if those guys have destroyed Ridley's home for the sake of resources. Hint, Hint at the Original Metroid Manual: Ridley is an original native of Zebes but it's now claimed by Chozos.
12:04 - It is actually explained why the station comes under attack. The X parasite that infects and then later reanimates your suit sets off a power bomb, freeing itself and other X parasites from containment. It happens in the very first room you investigate with all of the damaged/destroyed containers and that one single X parasite monster you kill.
I wish there were more super amazing end card tournaments
Jasmine G
or maybe you are playing as an xparasite


(note sarcasm)

-MatPat, 2017
Abel Binyam
Well matpat then they would already Know how to fly a ship if the x para rly works so
there is only one problem with this theory mattpat. i never noticed until i started playing through the metroid fusion again. your "boss" or guidance in the game scans them and says they are not infected. could they be carriers and not show any genetic signs? considering the nature of this parasite
