Effect Stronger than Missile, opens green doors

Super Missiles, often referred to as "Supers", are stronger than normal Missiles, dealing three times the damage (total of 300 damage) while having an attack cooldown of 19 frames. It is Samus's fastest traveling weapon.

A single Super Missile can open both red and green doors, whereas Missiles can only open red doors, and five are required to do so.

Only one Super Missile can exist on screen at a time. If another Super Missile is fired while one already exists on screen, it will immediately disappear from the screen.

Nearly every speedrunning category will acquire "Early Supers", and many of them will also acquire Wrecked Ship (West) Supers.
