First game in the series to refer to the Chozo (the original bird-like race inhabiting Zebes) by name in the game's manual. Their statues were seen in-game in both Metroid (1986) and Metroid II: Return of Samus (1991), but were nowhere identified as of Chozo origin at the time. According to behind-the-scenes stories, the Japanese manual of Super Metroid made references to "chojin-zoku", meaning "bird-folk race", but this was misinterpreted as "chozo", which means "bird statue". The word Chozo was subsequently chosen as the name of the race depicted by the statues.
