The Save Station is a very convenient device that allows Samus Aran to step on a platform and it will save your current game progress. On top of this, in the Metroid Prime series and in Metroid: Other M it also completely replenishes your health and ammunition. The look of the Save Station has never been consistent, changing in style with each new game.
 Metroid II: Return of Samus
This is the first game in which the Save Station appeared. However, the Save Station was just a little platform that you stood on and it gave you the option to save your game. Metroid II: Return of Samus is the only game in which the Save Station looked the way it did.
 Super Metroid
In Super Metroid, the Save Station was given a revamped design, as it appeared as a whole room with a rectangular platform in the middle. Standing on this platform gave you the option to save your game. Also, you could save in your ship to fully restore your energy and ammunition.
 Metroid Fusion
In Metroid Fusion, the Save Station is most nearly the same as in Super Metroid, but the process is a little bit fancier. The Save Stations have their own rooms, as in Super Metroid.
 Metroid: Zero Mission
The Save Station was almost exactly the same in Metroid: Zero Mission than as it was in previous titles. Although the graphics are probably a little bit better. Also, the Save Stations had their own rooms, as in previous titles.
 Metroid Prime
In Metroid Prime, the graphics were outstanding. Not only did this make the game better, but also the Save Stations. A shiny barrier went up around you as you saved your game in a Save Station. You could also save in your ship for a complete replenish of healt and ammunition.
 Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
In Metroid Prime 2: Echoes the Save Stations are very much the same than in previous titles. You could also save at your ship for a complete replenish of health and ammunition.
 Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
The saving process in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption was the same as in previous titles in the Metroid Prime series. You could also save in your ship for a complete replenish of health and ammunition.
 Metroid: Other M
In Metroid: Other M, the Save Stations were called Navigation Rooms. You would go to each, save, and then unlock a door into the next area. The only thing different in this game is that you cannot save in your ship. Other than that, the saving process in Metroid: Other M as well as the Save Station itself is the same as in all other titles.
