    Did they ever reveal who it was? I beat the game and I still don't know.

    I'm 99% sure it was James. (Read about it in another forum also)

    if you pay attention its easy to figure out seeing as there is 1 member of the team that you never find dead.

    I still don't get who the Deleter was. It's a gaping plot hole. They're just like "Oh, this guy was sent to kill everyone else". Yet we never find out who he is specifically and the only relevance he has is killing some of the other worthless characters. I was expecting him to be MB or something or a creature controlled by MB, not some random character.

    Fuck this game has a terrible plot.

    Imagine all time they spent on creating those CG scenes, now take that time and put them into making the game bigger, better, harder..

    Now wouldnt that be something?
    Oh well, guess i canĀ“t complain since i got it for free.

    It's funny because the game set after this one is Fusion, which had the SA-X. An exact replica of Samus [​IMG]

    I had my suspicions that it was Adam's brother, not actually exploded. But you have to remember that Melissa had some telekinetic ability, so maybe she controlled a Metroid that was on "the Deleter." If that were the case, the Deleter could have been anybody that Melissa needed to control at that moment. Could have changed. Plus, remember this, the Deleter was nothing more than a theory from Samus that made sense to her. NOBODY confirmed this in dialog, especially not Adam.

    Now, who was it that Samus found dead in the room she met Melissa to learn about Sector Zero? If this Deleter thing was true, then it could have been him and Melissa killed him before he could complete his mission. There isn't really a hole here. It just isn't important.

    I'm almost 100 percent positive it was James. K.G is the only body not found - but remember, the deleter pushed a body into the lava; there's no way the GF would've found it. James was the last to be found dead, as well. It's more likely than not James who killed everyone else off and went to kill Melissa (or report, whatever you believe.)

    Also, K.G is the only soldier not to have a sidearm on his left leg - every other character does. The body thrown into the lava didn't have a sidearm attached to the left leg. So it had to be K.G.

    Edit
    Copy + paste

    My guess is, there was no deleter.

    It was just MB killing them all and making them look like they killed each other (that first meeting part).
    And the one in the armor is just a metroid or something.

    or MB is secretly controlling one of them (maybe james)

    It's 2 bad that Adam died that way it would've been a lot better if Samus went instead (Gameplay wise anyway) lol

    I suspected James from the beginning. I mean, just that face

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    The face of a killer. But, KG was never shown dying, and the character bio's say he was never found. Possible he was the Deleter and got away before the Bottle Ship exploded. Anyway, it IS a big plothole.

    There's a cutscene where the deleter kicks a body into the lava (NOT Anthony during Ridley battle). It was K.G's body probably.

    I have the stupidest theory about what happened with KG

    Ok, All the stuff the Federation found was shipped to the BSL in Fusion right? They might've found KGs dead body and shipped it there, where it got infected with the X and became the boss Yakuza. (the one you get spider jump from)
    Evidence = KG Misawa and the name Yakuza are both Japanese.
