TUUUUUUBES is a series of MS Paint comics that mock the flawed logic of the Space Pirates, the main enemies of the Metroid video game series, and their tendency to favor the players by making mechanisms that can't be used by them but by Samus Aran, being the Morphball tubes one of the main examples.


The comics started being made on /v/ and /tg/. One of the most popular ones features two Space Pirates discussing about the use of tubes in order to make their base, claiming that they were useless for them and helped Samus Aran, but their conversation ends and they keep putting more tubes. Because of that comic, a running gag on the series is the obession that Space Pirates have for tubes.
