Galactic Federation Marines are the standard trooper militia of the Galactic Federation Military. The Marines consist of many classes, each with different attributes. Their basic uniform is a heavily armored metal suit, designed much like the Power Suit. The Marines' weaponry is varied greatly, although the majority of the troopers carry a standard Arm Cannon. The main purpose of the Marine's deployment is to render Space Pirate forces. The Marines are shown to consist of either gender, as shown by Specialist M. Angseth.
Standard Federation Trooper
The standard Federation Trooper is the basic form of Marine. The class consists of armored soldiers that are trained for combat. They are outfitted with metal suits and a special type of arm cannon that fits over the trooper's arm. The cannon is a rapid-fire assault cannon for use in combat. The troopers hold their own Logbooks where they can store personal entries. The standard Federation Trooper must stand to higher-ranked members of the Marines. There are nine known ranks into which the standard troopers are divided, those being Captain, Commander, Lieutenant Commander, First Lieutenant, Gunnery Sergeant, Sergeant, Specialist, Lance Corporal, and Private First Class, as demonstrated by the GFMC Task Force Herakles that served aboard the G.F.S. Tyr.

- "Last night at chow, Angseth starts talking about some bounty hunter and how she blew up a planet full of Space Pirates. I told her I didn't believe in fairy tales like that, and she took it personal. I just find it hard to believe that one person took out an entire Space Pirate base, that's all. But if she wants to believe in this Samus, or Bigfoot, or Santa Claus, she can." —Private First Class I. Crany (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)

- "Federation Marines wear advanced suits of powered armor, allowing them to use potent weapons and resist heavy damage in battle. Few can match them in combat." —Logbook (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption)
