Total Secret Worlds: 124

A Secret World is the area that you see when you exit a room's intended boundaries. This name was first from the original Metroid, and has been reused in Metroid II Return of Samus, Metroid Prime, and now, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. The areas are usually glitchy, and can cause your game to lock up, thus having to reset. But, Secret Worlds have helped us. In Metroid 2, they serve as shortcuts at times. In Prime, they served as a different way to understand the game, and even helped Sequence Breaking. Who knows what they will provide us with next!

Labeling notes (Master ZED, from the forums SW list) :

SA - Screw Attack boundary glitch. SA is bugged in that Samus becomes Morph Ball-sized when this is in use, and is forcibly unmorphed afterward regardless if there's a ceiling overhead. This allows you to break out of almost any morph ball tunnel and quite a few small nooks, given you can get in deep enough that the game won't warp you back out but instead instantly go back into first person view. Worlds that require Screw Attack, but do not use the glitch, don't receive this label.

FJ - Floaty Jump. Acquired by freeing Chykka's cocoon when standing in dark water and taking damage from the liquid, this massive jump can also be used to exit rooms, some of which have no other means of escape.

Morph - All these worlds require is that you morph at the right spot next to a door ring while the map is on the wrong room. These spots are usually found in front of where the door ring comes out of the ground (like this: \_ ).

Quad MB - OnceForgotten's unlabeled SW116 alt was the origin of this "method." All it requires is that you lean up against a hollow door ring (the same rings that can be found in Morph SW rooms) and let a Quad MB kick or shove you through. It's a random and untrustworthy method.

MBI - Morph Ball Invulnerability, a bug with its roots in the Infinite Speed (IS) glitch.

Float - forcing Samus into certain corners will result in a very slow ascension.

Multiplayer SW - Stages in multi-player that have secret world entrances. Crossfire Chaos is the only stage with a world so far, and may very well be the only one.

Pseudo SW - Agon Temple was added even though this "secret world" didn't really lead anywhere. It just trapped you in a box that shouldn't exist. doninss' method is an actual entrance and was discovered much later, but no one wanted to eliminate Metronome'd's contribution or reorder the list in what the proper numerical order would be as a result.

unconfirmed - Entrance has not been confirmed to work. Confirmation requires that either you make a movie of the entry process or that someone else post saying they have followed your instructions successfully. As of now, only Reactor Core and Battleground are unconfirmed, the former of which has been that way for over a year despite many attempts from many of the most skilled players on this forum to replicate the feat.

Note: A "canceled screw attack" is described on the Hive Dynamo Works SW page.
