Ridley theories

How does Ridley keep coming back?

After the first game, Space Pirates bring him back with machinery, but in Super Metroid, all that's gone. Does he not need it anymore? Or is the Ridley from Super Metroid a clone using the original's DNA?

And what is that thing in Metroid Fusion that they call Ridley-X? I tend to believe it's Ridley's DNA, just enhanced via gene manipulation by the X parasite mimicking him.

Maybe it takes the pirates longer to clone him then Metroids, and I would guess Ridley went to SR388 and got attacked by the Parasite X, who knows if he is still alive or not this time.

well..i kinda always assumed that it was a storyline flaw, but to fix it, it could be simply something like.. first they tried robotic parts, then they started moving towards genetic engineering..

Yeah, I was thinking about him having multiple clones. However, when you defeat Omega Ridley in Corruption, you never see what happens to him afterward, like you do with the other bosses. So maybe he escapes and emerges again in Super Metroid, now fully recovered and no longer needing the machinery.

But it still doesn't explain Fusion, unless he had a clone.

Yes, it took his DNA and mutated it. However, the question remains: where did it get this DNA? Did the Galactic Federation have it lying around the labs to attempt a clone, like they did with Metroids? Or did Ridley revisit SR388 after being defeated on Zebes in Super Metroid?

I like op89x's theory as indicated in the first post.
Sounds like a very good theory... It's mine now.

Yeah, there's a frozen Ridley in the game alright, but the question is, why is it there? Obviously the Galactic Federation was doing something with Ridley.

yeah, i think you might be right...


id like to see some games that take place AFTER fusion to help explain things.. preferably made by retro, because theyre really good at providing details on the series..
