Top definition
To have all of the abilities, equipment, powerups, etc, removed from a character in a videogame. Often happens at the start, or just before the start, of the game. Occasionally happens in the mid-to-late stages, but usually doesn't last for long. The term comes from the game, Metroid, where a player is usually stripped of all powers just before the game starts, forcing a long and difficult (though actually enjoyable) journey though the planet/space-station to recollect the various abilities you had at the beginning, so that you might destroy the final boss.
A: "I don't like the Metroid games for one reason."
B: "Oh?"
A: "You get Metroided."
B: "Oh."
