The planet from the original Metroid is spelled "Zebes" yet some people pronounce it differently. Is it pronounced "Zeebz", "Zeebees", "Zehbiss" or "Zebeth?" Personally I grew up pronouncing it "Zeebs" but I've heard it said a couple different ways. Gaming Linguistics offers a nice discussion of the original Metroid games and then digs in to the official word on how Zebes is pronounced. The answer he comes to may surprise you! Just kidding, it's not that surprising but it's a fun journey and I want to try my hand at more clickbait-like phrases to see if it causes more discussion. Spoiler alert, it doesn't seem to at all!

I thought you might be evil, so it's nice to have that confirmed :D
