Ridley's never been cloned...

Actually, he has. Here's how it goes, according to Wikitroid:

  • Metroid/Zero Mission: He is defeated, not killed. A robot modeled after him is the final boss of Zero Mission.
  • Metroid Prime: He is fitted with cybernetic enhancements. Once again, he is defeated, not killed. He survives the fall from that temple area.
  • Metroid Prime 3: The disintegration of Ridley was never shown, unlike those of other Leviathan Guardians. Therefore, he survives. Again.
  • Super Metroid: He is purely organic in this game, though how is unknown. He explodes along with the rest of Planet Zebes. This is the true death of the original Ridley.
  • Metroid Other M: Ridley is cloned by the Feds by using the particles that appeared on Samus's suit. He then evolves from the "Little Birdie" to the furry lizard creature to Ridley's final form. He is defeated by Samus, but escapes, only to be "killed" by the Queen Metroid. The Federation takes his corpse away to BSL.
  • Metroid Fusion: Ridley's corpse is infected by the X-Parasite, turning him into Ridley X, or Neo Ridley. He is defeated and presumably killed by Samus.

Seems to add up to me. Convoluted? Yes. Ridiculous? Obviously. But it's a videogame, and I don't care.

I always viewed Ridley as the "Bowser" of Metroid. The b&^% never seems to die...

Well Bowser doesn't explode into flames in the 2D games when you beat him.

Nah, he just gets every inch of his flesh burnt off by lava multiple times. I bet Kammy Koopa cloned him using particles off of Peach's dress.

Sort of like the "tears" that Phantom Limb leaves on Dr. Girlfriend's "Queen Etheria" costume on The Venture Brothers? :D

No, he doesn't explode into flames. He gets dropped into a enormous vat of them and slowly burns to death.

But he does return as Dry Bowser sometimes. D:

a death super metroid did the right way with crocomire. can you imagine that happening to bowser in the next game, with mario and luigi looking on in horror at what they've done? i can. easily.

Space colonization has its limits, too, and Metroid exceeds them regularly. I wouldn't worry so much; it's within the science-fiction jurisdiction of the series, and it's not the most preposterous thing that Metroid wants us to believe.

It doesn't matter that much to me, but a few people think Other M deserved a higher score. I think most of the reviews were generous. The bastardization of Samus wasn't the only thing goofy about this game. Other M's story doesn't just exceed science, it ignores it and then replaces it with nonsense. You really have to turn your brain off to stomach the whole thing. By the end of my 10 hour play through I wouldn't have been surprised if Samus had met a genie inside the bottle ship.

If you're referring to the regeneration thing, they regenerated dinosaurs similarly in Jurassic Park. :P

Maybe they mixed Metroid DNA with Polar Bear DNA. Result? Unfreezable Metroids!

thank you. i'm pretty shocked at the level of criticism of Other M's "plot holes" and "disregard for science"
if it bugs you, that's fair, but I don't understand it myself. convoluted and ridiculous plots are pretty much a staple of video games.

Yeah, I've played videogames before. Nonsensical is pretty standard. I think everyone was hoping that Other M would do something to progress videogame story telling and were bummed when it didn't.

@Pixelman
I read the article. Good to see that people graduating with useless English majors are able to find jobs somewhere. It's like a bad literary criticism paper written for a high school class.

Yeah but when your game is 10 hours long and loaded with cut scenes the story is sort of all you've got.

I think no story is more the staple of video games. I've liked the convoluted and ridiculous stories by Suda 51 and Hideo Kojima because they were good, but Yoshio Sakamoto needs a ghostwriter. He could also discover that when it comes to a video game story sometimes less really is more.

that. I agree with that.

yeah, Other M's story was far from great, and the game did put a large emphasis on it. it definitely set out to achieve a goal, and failed at it. but I see this all the time. the stories in the recent Resident Evil games are terrible, and they're getting super convoluted. Perfect example of less is more. It was better when I knew less about Umbrella and Wesker, and the origins of the virus. I get it. Umbrella is a semi-evil power hungry corporation that has been experimenting with biological weapons and OOPS! they made zombies. What else do I have to know? I'm fine with STARS, Umbrella, T-Virus. Those 3 things are all I need. And I get that people felt the same way about Metroid. Like, Samus is a bounty hunter, she works with the Federation, and fights Space Pirates and Metroids. End of story. So I get it, the story sucks. We didn't need it. But this is far from the first video game to have its story butchered when it didn't need to be.

other m's story doesn't really focus on the things that are bothering people. it's about samus losing her father figure to a corrupt military, a story i think it tells decently well. if you want to scoff at the idea of unfreezable metroids or physics bending then any metroid game is guilty of the same. on the subject of metal gear, why not complain about how absurd it is that a shirtless bisexual vampire is running around, or any other ridiculous and inexplicable thing seen in those games?
