Metroid Wiki is an online Metroid encyclopedia that anyone can edit. We aim to be the definitive source of information on the popular Metroid Series. Metroid Wiki is independently owned and operated, and as a result there is a focus on building a community within the site.

There are plenty of articles at Metroid Wiki to be worked on and many that haven't even been created yet. Why not create an account today, and become a part of this ever growing project?

History

The site was founded on January 27th, 2010 by Nathanial Rumphol-Janc and Dathen Boccabella, as an idea that originated at the Zelda Informer forums, and was then officially launched on February 9th, 2010. Throughout the staff boards and the community boards at Zelda Informer there was a desire to begin a sister site, Metroid Informer. While this concept is yet to manifest itself, the idea of a Metroid Wiki was raised by Nathan, and with the widespread support it received at both Zelda Informer and other websites, the wiki is here today.

The original staff of Metroid Wiki was comprised of just 3 members,[1] but grew and changed over time. In April 2011, the Wiki changed hands and Prod was listed as the wiki Owner,[2] and in May of that year, Procyon was listed as a co-owner.[3]
