|— NIWA Description of Metroid Wiki|
Metroid Wiki is an independent wiki, founded by Nathanial Rumphol-Janc and the staff of ZeldaInformer on January 27, 2010, that focuses on all aspects of Nintendo's Metroid franchise, and relevant spin-offs such as the Super Smash Bros. Series. Metroid Wiki was formally inducted into NIWA on May 29, 2010 (the second to be inducted). As of July 2013, Metroid Wiki has grown to 1,600 articles.
The original staff of Metroid Wiki was comprised of just 3 members, but grew and changed over time. In April 2011, Prod was listed as the wiki Owner, and in May of that year, Procyon was listed as a co-owner. The current Metroid Wiki staff are listed below in alphabetical order.

- Metroid Wiki's inception occured on ZeldaInformer's forums in early 2010, and stemmed from ZI/VGRC's original plan to instate a "Metroid Informer" website, in a similar vein to ZI and Halo Informer.
