Verifying Samus's Basic Weapon Hits Too Low

    Not sure if this is a bug, per se, or just a convenient exploit, but I was able to do this on accident and then replicate it.

    With Samus's crouch off and using her basic power beam (or the ice beam or missiles since they fire at the same height) if you jump and hit fire RIGHT before she lands (the window seems to only be two frames, three at most, where she is still using her jump sprite but technically touching the ground) you can just barely hit things that are only one block tall, such as goombas.

    EDIT: In theory, I think you could also do it if you leave morph ball by hitting jump instead of up, and fire right as she's leaving morph ball mode.

    Anyone know if you could do this in the original Metroid?
