Why do people call Metroid sci-fi?

It's impossible for a human being to morph into a ball like this. Metroid is science fantasy like star wars.

    Sci-fi is short for Science FICTION, retard.

    And a human morphing into a ball only happens in FICTION.

    Lord forgive me for this grievous error. Thank you OP, you cock-gobbling queer, you've opened my eyes to a whole new plane of autism.

        It's soft science fiction, there isn't a fantasy section in a library - there is fiction and nonfiction. Metroid is a popular science based fictional story, exploring ideas of space travel and advanced technology that may as well be magic. Is 2001: A Space Odyssey not science fiction because the monoliths are magical? Of course not. I swear, the zoomie obsession with endlessly unchecked categorization is a sign of mental illness.

    What's the point of this thread? Fantasy is just another form of fiction.

      I agree with OP that science fiction usually requires fantastical things to be explained by the scientific logic of the world that's being created, fantasy can just ignore any explanation and just say any sort of supernatural content is just magic.

    I think it works like the transporters in Star Trek, you dematerialize or turn into energy, Samus can still control the ball. But that begs the question, she not just turn into energy and float to the end point? Perhaps, if the ball is opened, the energy is released and Samus expires.

    Technically, it isn't impossible. It's just changing them back that's a bitch.

      It doesn't have to work, that is why it's called fiction. Fantasy doesn't even try to explain its supernatural elements.

    How about instead of playing fake science fiction game, you play a fun fiction game like Hollow Knight instead?

      She got aids from every alien species in the universe so even if she ever was she's not anymore.

      What? That's ridiculous. Samus isn't human. Humans can't do the shit he does.

    The term lost it's meaning in the 90s. We simply consider Fiction to be Science fiction for some, retard don't even know the difference anyways.

    It's still waaaay more fantasy than science fiction though, its basically about a magical mcguffin almighty powersuit (inb4 quoting c clark), its also about "strap some phazon ore and cannons to that creature to see what happens" "our morph ball experiments broke some fella's spine off"
