The Game Boy Advance SP (ゲームボーイアドバンスSP Gēmu Bōi Adobansu Essu Pī?) is a variant of the Game Boy Advance that has a clamshell design and a back-lit screen. It was released in 2003.

A Metroid-themed orange Game Boy Advance SP depicting a Samus Aran Ruins Test drawing on its bottom-right corner was given away as part of a speedrun contest on the Metroid Zero Mission Official Site. The Game Boy Advance SP was the grand prize (for the winner, who beat Zero Mission with a record of 28:09 and few items), while lesser prizes were a flyer signed by Chisato Morishita, a standee of Morishita, and a Metroid: Zero Mission shirt also available through Nintendo Power.[2]

In the House M.D. episode "Occam's Razor", House can be seen playing Metroid: Zero Mission on an SP several times.
