In one of the trailers for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, there's an introduction to the Aurora Units that feature heavily in the game. The camera pans over blueprints for what the game calls a future Aurora Unit complex. The layout is identical to Mother Brain's chambers in Tourian from Super Metroid.
In 2005, rumors spread of a new side-scrolling Metroid game known as "Metroid Dread". The original version of this game never materialized, although it would be developed and released for the Nintendo Switch in 2021.

However, in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, scanning a computer screen in game reveals the message "Experiment status report update: Metroid project 'Dread' is nearing the final stages of completion.", most likely a nod to Metroid Dread.
The player can unlock bumper stickers on Samus' Gunship by having the save data for certain games in their Wii's memory, including some games released after Metroid Prime 3. The games are:

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
WarioWare: Smooth Moves
Wii Play
Super Paper Mario
Mario Party 8
•Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

The Japanese version of the game includes a questionnaire. Once it's completed, the game recommends a difficulty level for you.
Corruption was the first Metroid game to feature extensive voice acting. While most of the game's voice actors aren't well known, anime fans may recognize Rundas' voice actor as Christopher Sabat, better known as the voice of Vegeta and Piccolo in Dragon Ball Z and GT.
In the original version of Metroid Prime 3, Admiral Dane shouts, "Damn! They're targeting the planetary-defense system." The word "Damn" was replaced with "No" in the Metroid Prime Trilogy though, likely to remove a possible swear word from the game.
Entering certain numbers on Samus' communications console in her ship will trigger special messages from 5 of the Metroid Prime 3 lead developers: Satoru Iwata, Kensuke Tanabe, Shigeru Miyamoto, Kenji Yamamoto, and Yoshio Sakamoto.
