Metroid Prime 3 walkthrough part 2

-------------

MISSILE: Use your ice missiles to freeze the fuel gel spouts, then use them as
ledges to work your way to the spot behind where the golem head was.

MISSILE: There's a small path in the fuel gel underneath the middle spout.
You'll get burned a little, but wade your way through it to grab the
expansion from the other side.

Activate your Command Visor and look at the top of the golem head to find a
spot for you to lock onto it. Have your ship pick it up, then use your ice
missiles to freeze the fuel gel spouts as you climb your way up to the ledge
behind where the golem head was to find a missile expansion.

Drop down and look at the middle fuel gel spout. Close to the bottom, you
should be able to see a small path. Freeze the spout, then drop down into the
fuel gel and work your way through the path quickly to grab the expansion.
Leave this room once you've got it.

LOG: Decline

SHIP MISSILE: In plain sight once you activate the golem.

1 Blue Credit: Scan for Decline lore entry

Look to your right shortly after entering the room to find a Lore entry, then
proceed to the main area and look up to see a giant golem. Use your Command
Visor to tell your ship to drop its cargo here, and the golem will smash the
gate guarding the ship missile expansion as well as the rocks blocking the
door. Grab the expansion and head out.

-------------------
Machineworks Bridge
-------------------

ENERGY TANK: Use the moving wall jump walls to jump to the ceiling in the
middle of the room.

Get in the spinner and spin the rotating platform until it locks in place, then
stand up and face one of the two moving wall jump walls. Wait until it moves
away from you, then double jump at it as it moves closer to you. Enter Screw
Attack, then jump off of the wall jump surfaces to grab the energy tank near
the ceiling.

Unfortunately, this is as far as you can go through here, since the gate on the
other side can only be rotated from that side... head back out of this room
via the same door you used to enter it.

--------------

--------------------

Double bomb jump your way up the morph ball tunnel at the end of this area,
then work your way around the upper path to get to the North Jungle Court. (If
you didn't activate the rotating thing here earlier in the game, you'll have to
go around the long way to get to the North Jungle Court).

------------------
North Jungle Court
------------------

Ride the elevator down, then enter the main area. Jump up on the platform to
the left, then jump onto the platforms around the destroyed anti-aircraft gun.
Take a look around with your Command Visor activated and find the generator on
the outside of the room. Use your ship to cart it off, then enter the morph
ball hole where the generator used to be sitting. Follow the tunnel to the
next blue door.

-------------------

Roll into the tunnel, then drop all the way to the bottom at the first hole in
the floor. Roll your way too the right until you leave the morph ball area,
then go through the door there.

------------

------------

ENERGY CELL: You'll be able to take it when you drop the generator on the
pump in this room.

Use your Command Visor to look around the area until you find a place to drop
your ship's current cargo. When you do, various things will activate in the
room, and the gate that was blocking access to the energy cell will be removed.
From the orange door, Screw Attack your way over to the upper ledge to the left
of the golem, then walk to the left to find the cell. Interact with it to take
it, then drop back down all the way to the lowest blue door to access the
Ruined Shrine.

Summon your ship with your Command Visor, then enter it and save if you'd like.
You'll need to make one more trip to Bryyo Fire to get some items later, but
for now, you don't have the necessary equipment. Head for the Research
Facility on the Pirate Homeworld instead.

=== Pirate Research ===
------------------
Landing Site Alpha
------------------

Shortly after landing, you'll be given a new objective:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Objective: Disable the Defense System |
| |
|Planet: Pirate Homeworld |
| |
|Information: "Samus, the Federation Armada is now in orbit above the Pirate |
| Homeworld. We're ready for the final assault, but the pirate |
| base is protected by an energy barrier that prevents us from |
| landing. We need you to disable this defense system." |

LOG: Assault Aerotrooper

1 Red Credit: Scan for Assault Aerotrooper

MISSILE: Use the spinners to rotate the central pillar thing until you have a
tunnel going from the bottom to the upper-right.

Walk out in to the main area and find the spider ball track on the wall.
Follow it until you drop down to the floor again, then find the next morph ball
tunnel entrance nearby and get in it. Use the spinner on the right to rotate
the top section of the central pillar thing until two pieces of the morph ball
tunnel go by. The result should be a continuous morph ball tunnel from the
bottom of the pillar to the upper-right of it. Exit the spinner and get in the
tunnel on the left, then move up it until you reach the missile expansion at
the top. Drop back down the tunnel when you're done.

Get in the left spinner and rotate the bottom section of the tower until the
next piece of spider ball track is showing, then get in the right spinner and
rotate the upper part of the pillar until you have a complete spider ball track
running from the bottom to the upper-left. Exit the spinner and use the track
to go upwards. When you exit the tunnel, use the control panel to grab the
Hazard Shield upgrade.

OBJECTIVE COMPLETE: Find the Acid Shield Unit

Scan one of the Assault Aerotroopers for a log entry, then blast them and jump
down to the floor to use the control panel that appears. Commandos will attack
as soon as you use it, so enter hyper mode and blast them quickly. Jump up the
platforms around the outside of the room to find your way back up to the doors,
then take the one on the right to get to the Airshaft.

--------
Airshaft
--------

Not much to do here, just move towards the shaft and drop down to the orange
door.

LOG: Taking Valhalla

1 Blue Credit: Scan for Taking Valhalla lore entry

MISSILE: Use the morph ball tunnel to reach a spinner, then rotate the floor
until you can reach the expansion.

Turn to the left and use a bomb on the cover plate that's blocking the morph
ball tunnel, then get inside. Roll to the spinner, then rotate the floor so
you can reach the missile expansion. Go back through the floor to exit the
tunnel, then head for the green grab ledge and look to the left for a wall with
Phazon growths on it. Enter hyper mode and destroy them with missiles, then
exit hyper mode and scan the Lore entry on the wall near the door before going
through it.

--------------
Metroid Creche
--------------

ENERGY TANK: Use the third spinner to reach the ceiling after beating the
Metroid Hatcher, then use the gap in the track to get to the
spider ball track on the ceiling. Use your boost ability to jump
from track to track until you reach the energy tank.

1 Gold Credit: Metroid Hatcher Defeated

Use the spinner at the back of the room to raise the containment thing, then
activate the bomb slot when you get tossed to the ceiling. Move to the next
bomb slot and do the same thing, then take on the Metroid Hatcher. If you've
been following my guide up to this point, you've already seen one of these
things. If not, here's a refresher:

You have to hit the four tentacles on the bottom to make them retract. Once
all four are retracted, the rest of the Hatcher will move around the room in a
stunned state, and if you hit it in the mouth during this time, you'll be able
to stun it even more, allowing you to use your grapple lasso to rip a tentacle
off. Ripping the tentacles off one by one is the only way to hurt the Hatcher.
Seeker Missiles work wonderfully for hitting the tentacles, but standard Plasma
shots will be all you need to stun the rest of it once the tentacles are
retracted.

With the Metroid Hatcher defeated, get in the third spinner and use the
containment thing to reach the ceiling. Let the game take control for a while,
and when you stop rolling, look up nearby to find a gap in the pipe thing with
some spider ball track above it. Hop up to it and use the spider ball tracks
to move through the area. You'll have to make use of your boost ability to
jump across tracks, but eventually you'll wind up at the energy tank in the
ceiling area.

Roll out the end of the track and get back in the spinner to launch yourself to
the ceiling again. This time, continue moving to the right instead of getting
on the spider ball track. Activate the bomb slot when you reach it, then use
the wall jump walls to get up to the door.

-------------------
Transit Station 3-A
-------------------

Move through here and use the door on the right.

------------
Save Station
------------

Save your game if you'd like, then go back out into the transit station.

-------------------

-------------------

Head out the door on the right.

--------
Lift Hub
--------

MISSILE: Use your grapple voltage to open the lift door on the lowest level,
then hit the lift's cable with a charged shot to make it fall.

Use the bomb slot to rotate the gate, then get in the elevator and drop down to
the lowest part of the area. Deal with the turret, then use your grapple
voltage to open the lift door to the left. When you get inside, it'll drop
down a little. Get back out of it and shoot the cable above it with a charged
shot to make it fall, then jump to the other side of the shaft to grab the
missile expansion.

Get back in the real lift and take it to the top floor, then take a left and
head out the orange door.

-----------------
Command Courtyard

LOG: Disaster at Elysia

1 Blue Credit: Scan for Disaster at Elysia lore entry

Enter hyper mode and slaughter the pirates that attack, then use the green grab
ledge near the stopped fans to get in the morph ball tunnel just like you did
the first time you were in this room. Follow it all the way to the end, then
stand up and follow the walkway all the way around the upper part of the room
to the opposite side, where you'll find a pirate data thing on the wall. Scan
it for a Lore entry, then drop back down to the main area.

Use your grapple voltage to suck the energy out of the force field blocking the
door, then head through it.

-----------------
Courtyard Passage
-----------------

Move through here to the door on the other side. There're tons of Scritters in
here, so if you missed that scan earlier, grab it now.

OBJECTIVE COMPLETE: Get Past the Acid Rain

LOG: Purification

1 Blue Credit: Scan for Purification lore entry

Use hyper mode to slaughter the pirates and Crawltanks that attack you, then

entry. Enter the tunnel when you're ready and roll through until you're
launched into Defense Access.

--------------

-------------

MISSILE: Use the mining controls in the back of the room to cut a path in the
wall that will let you jump up to the missile expansion.

Enter hyper mode to slaughter the pirates as quickly as possible, then head for
the back of the room to find some mining controls. Use them to cut a path in
the walls on both sides of the room, then head out to the main area and use the
new path on the right wall to grab the missile expansion. Use the halfpipe
that the mining equipment formed on the other side of the room to boost your
way up to the door.

---------
Mine Lift
---------

LOG: Vanguard

1 Blue Credit: Scan for Vanguard lore entry

Use the spider ball tracks to reach each spinner. Use the spinners to break
the supports on the elevator, and it'll drop to the floor below. When you get
down there, scan the pirate data thing for a Lore entry, then head through the
door.

-----------------
Phazon Harvesting
-----------------

LOG: Phazon Harvester Drone

1 Red Credit: Scan for Phazon Harvester Drone

Scan the huge drone for a log entry, then shoot the glowing thing on the bottom
of it to stun it. Jump across the chasm to the ledge on the other side, then
follow the path all the way up to the next door. The drone won't stay stunned
for long each time, so you'll have to keep stunning it as you work your way up
towards the door.

-------------
Drill Shaft 1
-------------

LOG: Victory and Loss

1 Blue Credit: Scan for Victory and Loss lore entry

Deal with the drones, then wait for the mining beam to stop before jumping over
to the green grab ledge. Jump to the next green grab ledge when that beam
stops, then turn to the left and jump up to the platform to find a Lore entry
on the wall. Head through the blue door once you have it.

-----------
Main Cavern
-----------

FRIEND VOUCHER: 20 Commandos Defeated

Work your way around to the back side of the room (scan the green door for a
log entry if you failed to do so earlier in the game) until you find the hand
scanner, then use it to activate the elevator. When you ride the elevator down
to the lower area, a fight will start.

Commandos will attack you in groups of three while the phazon collector
alternates between its cycles. When it kicks in, everything will be pulled
towards the center of the room, so you'll want to make sure you stay on the
outside of the room (be prepared to pull away from the center when it starts to
suck you in).

The Commandos will shred you quickly, so you'll want to enter hyper mode to
wipe them out fast. The tricky part is that you need to leave one of them
alive until the collector activates, then finish him off so he gets sucked in.
When a Commando gets sucked into the beam, look up and destroy one of the
targets at the top of the room. You'll have to repeat this process four times
to destroy the collector and make the Nova Beam item drop down (if you stay in
the room long enough, you'll be able to slaughter enough Commandos to earn a
Friend Voucher).

Activate your X-Ray Visor and look at the Phazite wall that's blocking the
elevator. You should see two small yellow circles, so hit each one of them
with a shot from your Nova Beam. that should cause a control panel to activate
on the door, so walk up to it with your X-Ray Visor still activated and use it
to make the Phazite slab go away.

Ride the elevator up, then use your X-Ray Visor and Nova Beam to shoot the
small yellow circle through the slab of Phazite up here. Once you've activated
the terminal, use your X-Ray Visor to interact with it and move the Phazite.
Go through the door on the other side.

-------------
Drill Shaft 2
-------------

Use your X-Ray Visor to look inside the jammed drill. You should see a little
glowing orb thing between the two moving shafts - hit it repeatedly until it
frees the drill, then scan the leaches for a log entry if you failed to do so
earlier in the game. Jump down in the hole and go through the next door when
you're ready.

-------------
Phazon Quarry
-------------

ENERGY CELL: Turn to the right when you enter this room from Drill Shaft 2 and
simply take the energy cell from the wall.

Turn to the right and grab the energy cell from the wall. Taking it will cause
a small opening to appear in the force field, which will let you get back up
here from below if you ever want to for some reason. For now though, just head
back the way you came.

-------------
Drill Shaft 2
-------------

Return to the center of the room and use the green grab ledge to get back to
the upper area, then head through the door.

-----------
Main Cavern
-----------

Work your way around to the green door you passed earlier and go through it.

-----------------
Phazon Mine Entry
-----------------

LOG: Bryyo Falls

MISSILE: Use your X-Ray Visor and Nova Beam to activate four small yellow
circles behind the Phazite wall near the Main Cavern door.

Deal with the Crawlmines, then use your X-Ray Visor to look at the slab of
Phazite to the right. See the four small yellow circles? Hit each one of them
with a shot from your Nova Beam, and the wall will raise. Grab the missile
expansion from inside, then scan the pirate data thing on the wall for a Lore
entry. Walk around to the other blue door and leave when you're ready.

--------------------
Landing Site Charlie
--------------------

Use your Nova Beam to melt all the metal that's blocking the landing site, then

Take out the Warp Hounds and Reptilicus with hyper mode, then head to the back
of the room and use your X-Ray Visor and Nova Beam to activate the four yellow
circles behind the Phazite plate. A hole will open in the floor, so roll into
it and work your way around to the far side of the room to find a missile
expansion. Leave through the same hole you used to get in, then head out the

There's a spider ball track near the door, so go ahead and start working your
way up it. You'll have to use your boost ball, bombs, and quick release and
re-attaches to make your way to the far side, where you'll find the energy
tank. Keep in mind that you can boost right through chunks of ice that're
hanging from the ceiling, and you can also bomb some chunks on the ground.
There's also a spot where you'll have to use a small half-pipe with your boost
ball.

Drop back down and put an energy cell in each station to activate the elevator
higher in the room.

Doing so will bring a Metroid Hatcher into the room. You can fight this one
the same way you fought the last two if you'd like, or you can make things very
easy and just blast it a ton of times with the Nova Beam. Even though it
doesn't look like it hurts it, it does, and it'll explode fairly quickly if you
hit it in the head enough.

Take the elevator up and head through the upper blue door when you're ready.

LOG: Anhur Incident

1 Blue Credit: Scan for Anhur Incident lore entry

1 Friend Voucher: Secret Message Discovered

Scan the data thing to the right for a lore entry, then interact with the
terminal on the left. It wants a code, and if you scan the objects in the
room, you'll find one near one of the fallen marines (78356). Enter that code
in the terminal to get a Friend Voucher, then find the thing in the far corner
of the room that needs power. Use your grapple voltage to charge it, then use
your X-Ray Visor to interact with the terminal that appears. You'll download
some sort of Pirate Code, but the Aurora Unit will tell you that it doesn't
know what it does. Head back out of the room when you're done.

1 Gold Credit: Defense System Obliterated

Enter the room and deal with the turrets and pirates, then start climbing up to
the top of the room via the platforms around the outside. Use your X-Ray Visor
to look at the terminal up there, then enter the code that's shown to drop the
protective coverings off of the Phazite plates.

There are three of them along the central shaft thing, so you'll have to start
working your way back down. Keep your eyes open for the Phazite panels, then
look at them with your X-ray Visor to see the small things jumping around in
them. Destroy all of them in all three Phazite sections to gain access to the
bomb slot at the very top of the room, which you'll have to climb back up to
now. When you activate the bomb slot, the shields will drop, and the invasion
will begin.

Ball to climb the shaft to the missile expansion.

When you roll out of the morph ball tunnel, stand up and use your grapple lasso
on the covering on the tunnel to reverse it, then roll into the tunnel on the
right. Find the Spider Ball track in the central area, then climb it using
bombs until you see a missile expansion. Grab it, then continuing climbing
until you get out of the central shaft. Use your grapple voltage to gain
access to the elevator, but don't use it - instead, go past it to the morph
ball tunnel that leads to Command Courtyard.

Enter hyper mode and pick off the two pirates up above, then turn your
attention to the other side of the room. Two more pirates will be on the upper
area there, and two air pirates will also attack. Fight the air ones from the
side opposite of your demolition guys - the explosion they make when they dive
at you will kill the demo guys if they're too close.

After the transport moves through, head to the other side and slaughter the
pirates there with hyper mode, then follow the demo guys up the ramps to the
blue door.

constantly to make short work of the shielded pirates (even ones with hand
shields are no match for hyper mode). Go through the blue door when you find
it.

Turn left and use hyper mode to slaughter the pirates, then dodge the Berserker
when it smashes through the wall. Instead of fighting it, run through the hole
it made and slaugther the pirates over there. When they're dead, deal with the
Berserker (by reflecting the big purple things it fires at you a few times,
then shooting its head when it's damaged).

When the Berserker is killed, more pirates will arrive. This time, they'll be
able to go invisible, but it really doesn't matter - you should still be able
to slaughter them with hyper mode fairly quickly. Once they're dead, the demo
guys will detonate the giant locks on the security door.

Work your way up the ramp around the outside of the room to reach the platform
thing in the middle, then jump up to the green grab ledge. A battle will
begin, so be prepared to scan the Pirate Commander for a log entry. He'll
teleport around the room, but it's not hard to hammer him with hyper beam when
he appears. When he's eliminated, turn on your X-Ray Visor and slaughter the
rest of the pirates in the room.

Work your way back up to the green grab ledge, and this time, use the terminal
on the wall to retract the ceiling doors. Summon your ship to blast the giant

1 Gold Credit: Omega Ridley Defeated

Scan Omega Ridley as soon as the battle starts for a log entry, then start
firing at his mouth. Hit him enough, and he'll be stunned - run up to him and
use your grapple lasso to pull his armor away, then enter hyper mode and blast
the weak spot. Repeat as necessary.

He'll eventually materialize a different kind of armor, at which point your
strategy will have to change slightly. When you stun him now, you'll have to
switch to your X-Ray Visor and hit the two weakspots on the right and left of
his new armor until both parts have been shattered, and then you'll be able to
damage his weak spot just like before.

He'll fly around outside for a while at some point, but he's not much of a
threat. Wait until he lands inside again, then stun him one more time and
finish him off. Grab the pointless item he drops, then use it on the two
things that drop from the ceiling just like you'd use your regular grapple
voltage. With enough Phazon energy sent to the tentacle things, they'll
explode, giving you access to the seed. Release your massive Phazon blast to
destroy it.

Samus will get back to her ship on her own, at which point you'll be given your
next objective:

eventually destroy the larger thing in the middle of the room. You'll have to
drop through the hole that appears in the middle, then repeat the process a few
times. Note that you can deplete your Phazon meter by staying on the blue

LOG: Dark Samus
LOG: Aurora Unit 313

2 Red Credits: Scans for Dark Samus and Aurora Unit 313

2 Gold Credits: Dark Samus Repusled and Aurora Unit 313 Defeated

Scan Dark Samus right off the bat for a log entry, then start hammering her
with regular shots. This battle really isn't hard at all, but make sure you
blast her out of the sky as quickly as you can when she starts absorbing Phazon
from the area (or she'll heal her damage).

When she summons an echo of herself, turn on your X-Ray Visor and focus on the
one that's glowing red. You can destroy the echo if you want, but they're not
much of a threat to be honest. You should be able to finish the real Dark
Samus off in no time anyway.

Scan the Aurora Unit when it appears for another log entry, then keep your eyes
peeled for the tentacle things that pop out of the side of it. If you're fast
enough to tag them, you'll get a chance to stun the head by hitting the yellow
ports. Once it's stunned, it'll fall to the ground for a few seconds. Run up
to it and grapple the doors off of the top, then pound the hell out of the weak
spot until the doors close.

Repeat that same process until you sever the head from the ground. When it's
flying around, Aurora Unit 313 is much easier to hit. It's got a giant weak
spot on the back, so all you have to do is get behind it and pound on it until
it's destroyed.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

| 2.00) Expansions |
| |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the following sections, I've arranged all of the expansion items that you
can collect in the game by type. I've arranged them in the order that you
would pick them up if you were following my guide all the way through the game,
so some of them might be in a different order than what you would expect if
you're just checking this as a quick reference.

Farther down in this guide, you'll find "Quick Expansion Lists" that are
basically just lists that give you the name of a room, the area it's in, and
what type of expansion(s) you can find there.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
| |
| 2.01) Energy Tanks |
| |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

In addition to your original 99 units of energy, you can find 14 energy tanks
in the game.

----------------------------------
G.F.S. Olympus - Ventilation Shaft
----------------------------------

Impossible to miss, you'll get this energy tank on your way through the room.

------------------------
Norion - Substation East
------------------------

You'll see this energy tank sitting in a little tunnel area that goes around
the outside of the room. You'll need to enter this tunnel to avoid the
damaging floor anyway, so this energy tank is pretty hard to miss.

--------------------
Bryyo - Reliquary II
--------------------

Reliquary II is a small room attached to the Gateway. The energy tank is just
sitting in the middle of the room, so you won't need to do much to get it.

---------------------
Bryyo - Ruined Shrine
---------------------

It's sitting in a fragment of a golem at the bottom of the shaft. Use a bomb
on the weak spot and the energy tank will be yours for the taking.

-------------
Brryo - Vault
-------------

You'll have to destroy the fuel gel deposits on the walls in the Overgrown
Ruins to find the door to this room, but once you do, the energy tank is just
sitting there waiting for you to take it.

-----------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Steambot Barracks
-----------------------------------

The Steamlord drops the energy tank when you destroy him.

---------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Arrival Station
---------------------------------

Use the grab ledge in the outside area to reach an upper clearing that has an
orb cannon. Use the spinner to activate it, then launch yourself to the far
platform that has the energy tank.

---------------------------------------------
Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Xenoresearch A Lift
---------------------------------------------

Shatter the glass on the containment unit closest to the elevator on the upper
level, and the energy tank is free for the taking.

----------------------------
Pirate Research - Scrapworks
----------------------------

You'll have to do a double bomb jump in the upper part of the morph ball system
shortly after the two moving platforms.

-----------------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Zipline Station Charlie
-----------------------------------------

When you're using Spider Ball to get back over the huge system of tracks, you
will have a chance to double bomb jump up to an energy tank in the middle of
the track system.

---------------------------
Bryyo - Machineworks Bridge
---------------------------

You can use the two moving wall jump slabs in the middle of the room to wall
jump your way up to the energy tank near the ceiling.

--------------------------------
Pirate Research - Metroid Creche
--------------------------------

After defeating the Metroid Hatcher, use the spinner it came out of to launch
yourself to the ceiling. Inside the morph ball track, look for a gap in the
top right below some spider ball tracks. Follow this series of tracks using
your spider ball and boost ball, and the energy tank will be yours.

-----------------
Bryyo Ice - Tower
-----------------

There's a spider ball track near the door, so go ahead and start working your
way up it. You'll have to use your boost ball, bombs, and quick release and
re-attaches to make your way to the far side, where you'll find the energy
tank. Keep in mind that you can boost right through chunks of ice that're
hanging from the ceiling, and you can also bomb some chunks on the ground.
There's also a spot where you'll have to use a small half-pipe with your boost
ball.

----------------------------------
G.F.S. Valhalla - Munitions Locker
----------------------------------

It's sitting in the middle of the room just waiting for you to take it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
| |
| 2.02) Missiles |
| |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can find 50 Missile Expansions in the game, which will bring your total
missile count up to 255 (the missile launcher you find in the G.F.S. Olympus
gives you five, but I don't really consider it to be an expansion).

------------------
Norion - Cargo Hub
------------------

As soon as you enter this room, you should be able to hear the classic noise
that indicates there's an item nearby. The hinges on the cover to the panel on
the right shortly after you enter the room are weak - use your grapple lasso to
rip the cover right off of it. Activate the controls behind it to gain access
to a morph ball hole directly to your left. Enter it, then work your way
through the area with your bombs, morph ball jumps, and the gusts of air.

------------------------
Bryyo - Grand Court Path
------------------------

Blast the statue high on one of the walls, then jump up to the ledge where it
used to be. From here, you can jump to a path that leads to the expansion.

----------------------
Bryyo - Hillside Vista
----------------------

Head back up towards the ramp where you first entred the room and use your scan
visor to find a cracked section of rock, then bomb it to enter a morph ball
hole. The little worm things here will collect on your morph ball until the
start to move you towards the Korba up above, but you can still control which
way you move with your analog stick. As soon as enough Snatchers are on you
and you start moving, hold left on the analog stick until you make it all the
way up the far left path.

----------------------
Bryyo Fire - Main Lift
----------------------

Once you're inside the morph ball area, gather enough Snatchers on yourself to
start floating upwards, then pull to the left right before you reach the Korba
at the top. Drop a bomb to free yourself from the Snatchers, then roll
yourself through the morph ball tunnel until you reach the missile expansion.

---------------------
Bryyo Fire - Gel Hall
---------------------

Hit the dragon sculpture thing's mouth with charged shots, and it'll spit
flames for a few seconds. Time it so that the flames hit the vine to the left,
and it'll break, dropping a platform with some missiles on it.

---------------------
Bryyo Fire - Gel Hall
---------------------

Use ice missiles on the fuel gel to create platforms, which you can use to
work your way over to the missile expansion (which is down the hallway to the
right when you enter this area from Save Station A).

------------------------------
Bryyo Fire - Gel Refinery Site
------------------------------

When entering the room from Gel Purification Site, use your Grapple Lasso to
remove the loose pipes to the right.

------------------
Bryyo - Crash Site
------------------

Grapple your way to the Theseus, then enter the morph ball tunnel. Work your
way to the left, then head up as far as you can (you'll have to do a double
bomb jump where you see the moving piston thing in the upper-left). When you
roll out on the top of the ship, you can grab a missile expansion above the
grappling point.

------------------------
Bryyo - Jungle Generator
------------------------

When you use the sonic locking mechanism to uncover the Lore entry, you'll also
find a missile expansion behind it.

----------------------------
Bryyo - Generator Hall North
----------------------------

Use the morph ball tunnel to the right of the controls on the upper area to
grab the expansion.

-----------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Transit Hub
-----------------------------

You'll see this expansion in a little morph ball passage on your way through
this area the first time. You'll need to perform a double bomb jump to reach
it.

---------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Barracks Access
---------------------------------

When you're rolling under the lasers, look around for a small alcove at one end
to find the expansion.

--------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Skybridge Hera
--------------------------------

When you get on the bridge for the first time, the first pillar you see will be
hollow - get inside it with your morph ball and hop to find the expansion.

----------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay
----------------------------------

Use the Plasma Beam to melt the metal across from the door to Main Docking
Access, then enter morph ball mode and hop into the hole.

--------------------------
Bryyo Fire - Imperial Hall
--------------------------

When entering from Refinery Access, walk down the hallway, then stop when you
reach the ledge that drops down to the main area. Look to the right and find
the morph ball tunnel, then roll through it and stand up on the other side.
Use your grapple lasso to yank the two platforms off of the wall, then jump
from them to the missile expansion.

-----------------------------------
Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Gearworks
-----------------------------------

On your way back through this area, a pirate ship will destroy the gears, which
will give you a clear path to the missile expansion. You'll have to grab it as
you Screw Attack your way over to the other door. It's a long way to go, so
you'll need to space out each jump as far as you can. If you press the button
too quickly each time, you'll fall short of the platform on the other end.

----------------------------------
Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Botanica
----------------------------------

From the ledge near the ice missile door leading to the Broken Lift, Screw
Attack over to a small indentation in the wall, then Screw Attack over to the
missiles from there.

-----------------------------------
Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Concourse
-----------------------------------

Roll through the morph ball tunnel to the left of the door when you first enter
this room from Concourse Access B.

----------------------------------
Pirate Command - Command Courtyard
----------------------------------

Head for the right side of the room towards the energy shield and find the big
fans. Face them, then look up to the right to find a green grab ledge. Jump
up to it, then get in the morph ball tunnel to the right of it. Follow the
tunnel until you have a split. Take the left side to find a missile expansion.

--------------------------------
Pirate Command - Command Station
--------------------------------

When entering from the tunnel in Flux Control, roll to the right and work your
way over to the other side of the room to find the expansion.

----------------------------------
Pirate Command - Security Air Lock
----------------------------------

When you enter from Defense Access for the first time, the expansion will just
be right there in plain sight.

----------------------------
Pirate Research - Scrapvault
----------------------------

When you get to the first green grab ledge, turn to the right to see another
ledge in the distance. Jump over there with your Screw Attack, then look
around for another green grab ledge. Use it to reach the expansion.

------------------------------------
Pirate Research - Metroid Processing
------------------------------------

After you remove the energy cell from the lower area, you can find a missile
expansion in one of the shattered Metroid containment units.

----------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Powerworks
----------------------------

Once you have the Spider Ball item, drop all the way down the hole where the
statue used to be, then scan down at an angle towards the morph ball hole to
get the Spider Ball Track log entry (or just wait and get it somewhere else).
Enter the tunnel and hold down your Z button to stick to the tracks, then work
your way towards the other side. Make sure you don't accidentally touch one of
the flames, or you'll fall off of the pod and have to start over.

When you finally make it back inside, grab onto the track next to the one you
came off of to go back outside. Eventually, you'll run out of track, so charge
your boost ball and let go of it to jump over to the track on the other side.
Continue moving your way over until you run out of track, and you should find a
missile expansion.

----------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Construction Bay
----------------------------------

From the upper area near the top of the morph ball lift, use Screw Attack to
get over to the far side of the area and grab the expansion.

-----------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Steambot Barracks
-----------------------------------

Work your way through the morph ball area just like you did the first time you
were in this room, only this time, activate your Spider Ball when you go by the
Spider Ball tracks.

-----------------------------------------------
Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Concourse Ventilation
-----------------------------------------------

Use the Spider Ball tracks on the outside area of the lowest part of the room
to reach the expansion.

--------------------------
Norion - Docking Hub Alpha
--------------------------

Walk behind your ship and look for the small walkway path thing with the
grapple point above it, then either grapple or Screw Attack your way to the
other side for a missile expansion.

------------------------
Norion - Substation West
------------------------

Roll along the small indentation in the wall with the moving parts to reach the
expansion by the door to Conduit B.

----------------------------
Norion - Maintenance Station
----------------------------

Sitting in plain sight behind the ice missile door.

---------------------
Norion - Cargo Dock A
---------------------

Use the spider ball track to your right on the outside of the structure after
entering this room from Conduit A.

---------------
Bryyo - Gateway
---------------

Make your way to the central pillar and look towards the door to the Gateway
Hall. Look to the left of there for a platform to Screw Attack to. Hit the
frozen spot on the wall to reveal a morph ball tunnel, then roll through it to
grab a missile expansion.

---------------------
Bryyo - Reliquary III
---------------------

The expansion is just sitting in the room for you. You can access this room
via the grappling points on the ceiling in the Grand Court.

---------------------
Bryyo - Falls of Fire
---------------------

When you take the golem to the lower level, look above him for some wall jump
walls. Use them to jump up to the missile expansion.

--------------------------
Bryyo - Hall of the Golems
--------------------------

Activate the golem closest to the spider ball track generator. Use the tracks
to reach a missile expansion high up in the room (you'll have to avoid the
electricity, and you'll have to make good use of bombs, boost ball, and falling
when appropriate).

--------------
Bryyo - Burrow
--------------

Enter the morph ball tunnel and head all the way to the first crystalized fuel
gel deposit all the way to the right. Bombing it will destroy some of the
stuff that's blocking your path, so go ahead and drop down once you've bombed
it. Work your way to the left, then head up when you reach the plant things
that you have to hop onto. Bombing the next section of crystalized fuel gel
will destroy some of the floor farther to the left, so hop out of this part of
the maze and head over there.

Drop down, then bomb another section of crystalized fuel gel and head down.
To the left, you'll see a small ledge with an enemy on it. Hop up there, bomb
the enemy, and then double bomb jump up to grab the missile expansion.

--------------------
Bryyo - Hidden Court
--------------------

When entering this room from the Burrow, you'll be able to Screw Attack your
way to a halfpipe, which you can use to boost yourself up to the expansion.

---------------------
Bryyo - Fuel Gel Pool
---------------------

Activate your Command Visor and look at the top of the golem head to find a
spot for you to lock onto it. Have your ship pick it up, then use your ice
missiles to freeze the fuel gel spouts as you climb your way up to the ledge
behind where the golem head was, where you'll find the missile expansion.

---------------------
Bryyo - Fuel Gel Pool
---------------------

Drop down and look at the middle fuel gel spout. Close to the bottom, you
should be able to see a small path. Freeze the spout, then drop down into the
fuel gel and work your way through the path quickly to grab the expansion.

Alternatively, if you don't feel like getting a little scorched, you can wait
until you have the Hazard Shield. Fuel Gel won't hurt you anymore once you
have it.

-------------------------
Bryyo - Ancient Courtyard
-------------------------

Use the halfpipe in the middle of the room to reach the expansion.

---------------------------
Pirate Research - Craneyard
---------------------------

When you reach the area with two spinners, use the spinner on the right to
rotate the top section of the central pillar thing until two pieces of the
morph ball tunnel go by. The result should be a continuous morph ball tunnel
from the bottom of the pillar to the upper-right of it. Exit the spinner and
get in the tunnel on the left, then move up it until you reach the missile
expansion at the top.

--------------------------------
Pirate Research - Creche Transit
--------------------------------

Enter the morph ball tunnel near the door to Metroid Processing, then use the
spinner to rotate the floor and reach the expansion.

-------------------------
Pirate Command - Lift Hub
-------------------------

Use your grapple voltage to open the door to the second lift on the lower level
of the area. When you get inside, it'll drop down a little. Get back out of
it and shoot the cable above it with a charged shot to make it fall, then jump
to the other side of the shaft to grab the missile expansion.

----------------------------
Pirate Mines - Phazon Quarry
----------------------------

Use the mining controls in the back of the area to cut a huge path in the wall,
then use it to reach the expansion.

--------------------------------
Pirate Mines - Phazon Mine Entry
--------------------------------

Use your X-Ray Visor and Nova Beam to activate four small yellow circles behind
the Phazite wall near the Main Cavern door.

----------------------------
Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo
----------------------------

Use your X-Ray Visor and Nova Beam to activate the panel in the back of the
temple, then roll through the fuel gel in the floor to find the expansion.

------------------------------
G.F.S. Valhalla - MedLab Alpha
------------------------------

After destroying the three sections of weak wall and ripping the panel off with
your grapple lasso, roll into the hole in the floor to find the expansion.

--------------------------------
G.F.S. Valhalla - Auxiliary Lift
--------------------------------

Enter the morph ball track from the back of the elevator when it's on the upper
floor, then head to the left after the first piston thing drops to the lower
area.

-------------------------------
G.F.S. Valhalla - Weapons Cache
-------------------------------

Sitting in plain sight.

-----------------------------
Pirate Command - Flux Control
-----------------------------

Use your grapple lasso to flip the cover on the morph ball tunnels, then roll
through the tunnel on the right. Use your bombs and Spider Ball to climb the
shaft to the missile expansion.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
| |
| 2.03) Ship Missiles |
| |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are 8 additiona Ship Missile Expansions to find in the game, though your
total will actually be 11 since the original issue you receive will give you 3
right off the bat.

------------------------
Bryyo - Auxiliary Dynamo
------------------------

Use your grapple lasso to lower the piston thing on the wall in the middle of
the room, then enter the morph ball track from the South Jungle Hall side to
get the expansion.

----------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Security Station
----------------------------------

Melt some metal with your Plasma Beam in the corner to the right of the control
panel in the upper area. Go through the morph ball tunnel behind the melted
metal to grab the expansion at the other end of the room.

-------------------------------
Bryyo Ice - Hall of Remembrance
-------------------------------

When entering from the door at the top of the Tower, hit the blue spot on the
Chozo statue's hand, then jump to it and look on top of the platform to the
left.

----------------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Hoverplat Docking Site
----------------------------------------

Screw Attack your way to the platforms in the middle of the area, then make use
of your Spider Ball to climb the tracks and grab the expansion.

----------------------
Bryyo - Colossus Vista
----------------------

When you put the head back on the massive golem, it'll smash the gate that was
blocking your access to the expansion.

------------------------------
G.F.S. Valhalla - MedLab Alpha
------------------------------

You'll have to start by activating the generator in the Xenoresearch Lab, then
enter the morph ball tunnel in the floor there. It'll lead you through a
series of tunnels until you eventually grab the expansion in the ceiling of
MedLab Alpha.

----------------------------
Pirate Research - Scrapworks
----------------------------

Work your way to the halfpipe inside the morph ball area, then use it to launch
yourself up to the Spider Ball tracks. You'll have to carefully bomb your way
up to the expansion from the ledges below it.

-----------------------------------
Pirate Research - Processing Access
-----------------------------------

Use your X-Ray Visor to see behind the two thin Phazite slabs, then shoot the
targets behind them to open up a passage in the ceiling. Wall jump your way to
the top, then hit the force field thing with some missiles to grab the
expansion.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
| |
| 2.04) Energy Cells |
| |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are 9 energy cells to collect in the game. You'll need some of them to
finish the game, and you'll need the rest if you want to have 100% completion.

------------------
Bryyo - Hanger Bay
------------------

Use the hand panel next to the elevator shaft near the room's entrance to
activate the elevator, then step into the hologram to go up a level. Blast the
grate off of the right ventilation duct, then morph into a ball and head in
there. Stand up and interact with the energy cell on the wall to take it
(which will drop the energy shield guarding the orange door down below).

----------------------------------------
Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Xenoresearch B
----------------------------------------

You'll have to remove this from the wall in order to grab the Seeker Missile
item, so you can't really miss it.

----------------------------------
Pirate Command - Command Courtyard
----------------------------------

You'll have to take this one from the wall when you deactivate the ventilation
fans, so you can't really miss it.

------------------------------------
Pirate Research - Metroid Processing
------------------------------------

You have to remove this one from the wall in the lower part of the room to
access the central lift, so you can't really miss it.

----------------------------------
SkyTown, Elysia - Ballista Storage
----------------------------------

Use your Grapple Lasso to pump extra energy into the two fans on the wall to
fry them, then take the energy cell that used to be powering them from the wall
between them.

--------------------
Norion - Generator B
--------------------

After you've beaten the Metroid Hatcher, a morph ball tunnel will open near the
door. Enter it, then stand up when you come out of it and take the energy cell
from the wall there.

--------------------
Bryyo - Hidden Court
--------------------

This one's complicated, mostly because you have to grab the generator from
North Jungle Court before you can access it. I suggest checking the main
walkthrough of this guide for detailed room-by-room instructions if you're
having trouble figuring out what to do for this one.

----------------------------
Pirate Mines - Phazon Quarry
----------------------------

When entering this area from Drill Shaft 2, you'll be able to simply grab the
energy cell from the wall.

-------------------------------
G.F.S. Valhalla - Docking Bay 5
-------------------------------

This one is just sitting on the ground near the wreckage of a fighter on the
docking bay where your ship is docked.

| 4.00) Logbook |
| |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Locations and full text entries for each Logbook item are included below. The
game arranges Creature and Research entries alphabetically, but not the Lore
entries. I've left them in their original order, just like the game lists
them.

Please note that I've only listed the location that you will first encounter
each scan if you're playing the game using my guide. Many entries can be found
in multiple locations, or may be first encountered in a different location if
you are not using my guide.

If you're just interested in a simple list of entries, the section after this
one has simple lists for each type of scan.

Please note that I do not take credit for the full text entries included in
this document; I copied them directly out of the game by hand. It's a tedious
task that I wouldn't want anyone else to have to do, so by all means, if you'd
like to use them for some other purpose, feel free to take them from my guide.
It'd be absurd to expect you to copy them on your own when you'd just wind up
with the same final product anyway (plus or minus a few typos, anyway).

| 4.10) Creatures |
| |
-----------------------------------------------
================================
4.11) Galactic Federation
================================
---------------
Aurora Unit 217
---------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Aurora Chamber

Aurora Unit 217 was originally built to support GF Naval Base Demeter, but was
assigned to SkyTown base shortly after the Treaty of Elysia was signed 14 years
ago. 217 has served admirably in its role as SkyTown administrator. Vast
amounts of tactical intel have been delivered from SkyTown under AU 217, along
with valuable stellar and interstellar research data. It has interfaced well
with the Elysian mechanoids, and enjoys a productive working arrangement with
them.

------------------
Demolition Trooper
------------------

Found: Pirate Command - Skyway Access

Demolition Troopers are not especially combat savvy and often rely on others to
cover them in battle. They are outfitted with explosive weaponry for special
missions. When the only way to the objective is straight through everything,
the troopers in this unit are called upon to make it happen. While capable of
destroying the strongest of barriers, these troopers are not as capable in
combat as traditional marines.

-----------------
Federation Marine
-----------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5

Federation Marines wear advanced suits of powered armor, allowing them to use
potent weapons and resist heavy damage in battle. Few can match them in
combat.

---------------------
Federation PED Marine
---------------------

Found: Norion - Cargo Dock A

The Federation has created a system that utilizes Phazon to increase the power
of the armor worn by GF Marines. While active, the Phazon unit enhances the
attack and defense systems of the armorsuit.

--------------------
Female Fleet Trooper
--------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay Access

Fleet Troopers are the backbone of the navy, often ignored in favor of the
gallant Federation Marines. Their work isn't always dangerous, and is rarely
glamorous. Most are specialists, and possess a great deal of knowledge.

------------------
Fleet Admiral Dane
------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Flag Bridge

Fleet Admiral Castor Dane is known for his utmost dedication to protecting the
Federation from its enemies. He is stern and aggressive, and has a strong
dislike for the Space Pirates. Rumor has it they orphaned him at an early age,
an act he still seeks to avenge.

--------------
Fleet Mechanic
--------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5

Fleet Mechanics are responsible for maintaining and repairing all Federation
equipment. Because of the vast amount of devices and vehicles the Federation
utilizes, skilled mechanics are highly sought after and often overpaid.

--------------------
Halberd-Class Turret
--------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5

The GMX-04 Halberd-class turret replaces the dated "Growler" turret. It is an
effective point-defense system for most security zones. It is lightly armored,
and nimble targets can evade its tracking system.

----------------
Hunter Gandrayda
----------------

Found: Norion - Tower Elevator

Gandrayda possesses the metamorphic ability to assume the form and abilities of
other creatures. This talent has led many to seek her out for stealth and
reconnaissance missions, despite her powerful combat capabilities. Details on
the subject's origins and age are unknown, but her unique traits have made her
a sought-after Hunter for missions.

-----------
Hunter Ghor
-----------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Security Station

Ghor is a cybernetic Bounty Hunter, capable of merging his body into larger
mechanisms. The most common of these is his armorsuit, which doubles as a
gunship and provides him with a formidable combat arsenal. The merges are
often accompanied by a shift in personality, replacing his normally calm
demeanor with an aggressive attitude. He demonstrates a high proficiency with
all things mechanical and is often called upon for missions requiring computer
infiltration or manipulation.

-------------
Hunter Rundas
-------------

Found: Norion - Tower Elevator

Rundas is capable of generating and manipulating ice. This trait is common
among inhabitants of the moon Phrygis, but Rundas is one of the few who have
used this ability for bounty hunting. Subject is known for getting results,
but considers himself without peer. His arrogant demeanor has led him to
mainly seek solo missions, and rarely works with others.

------------------
Male Fleet Trooper
------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay Access

Fleet Troopers are the backbone of the navy, often ignored in favor of the
gallant Federation Marines. Their work isn't always dangerous, and is rarely
glamorous. Most are specialists, and possess a great deal of knowledge.

--------------
Training Drone
--------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5

The Training Drone is used in all branches of the GF military. They are
designed to improve hand-eye coordination and accuracy. One popular training
exercise is to score as many consecutive hits on a drone as possible. Gambling
on shooting contests involving Training Drones is frowned upon, but fairly
popular throughout the GF armed forces.

==================
4.12) Bryyo
==================
------------
Alpha Hopper
------------

Found: Bryyo - Gateway Hall

Alpha Hoppers are characterized by their unique color and durable hide. They
are highly territorial and will attack any creature who wanders too close to
their nests. When hunting in packs, they will often keep their distance while
others move in to attack at close range. Like all Hoppers, their legs end in
sharp talons and can be used to shred through any prey that gets close enough.

------
Atomic
------

Found: Bryyo - G.F.S. Theseus

Atomics are creatures composed entirely of energy. A strong energy blast is
adequate to destabilize the Atomic and cause it to explode. They are sustained
by their core, which generates a constant supply of electricity. When an
abundance of energy has been produced, the Atomic will discharge a section of
its body in the form of an explosive projectile. When near sources of energy
of an opposite polarization, the Atomic will respond aggressively.

-------------------
Bryyonian Shriekbat
-------------------

Found: Bryyo - Gateway

One of the many types of Shriekbats found across the solar system, the
Bryyonian Shriekbat behaves similar to all of its cousins. Shriekbats will
nest in small groups and make their home in a sheltered environment. Dwelling
on the top of caverns and ruins, the Shriekbat will hunt nearby insects and
small creatures for food. Once a nesting area has been found, it will be
fiercely protected from any intruder. The territorial Shriekbat will dive-bomb
any creature that wanders too close, no matter what the size.

--------------
Fargul Hatcher
--------------

Found: Bryyo - Hall of the Golems

Within the Fargul Hatcher's maw is an organ cluster that is vulnerable to
attack, but only when exposed. Fargul Hatchers are capable of giving birth to
dozens of young in a matter of moments. These offspring will immediately swarm
in on any nearby attacker. Their skin is incredibly resilient and will deflect
most weapon fire.

-----------
Fargul Wasp
-----------

Found: Bryyo - Hall of the Golems

Fargul Wasps are highly protective of their parent Hatcher. Even moments after
birth, they will swarm together and attack any nearby organism. They are often
used as a defense mechanism by the Fargul Hatcher, and as a result, few live to
adulthood.

------
Geemer
------

Found: Bryyo - Reliquary III

The spiked shell of a Geemer is rather durable and can only be destroyed by an
explosive blast. While menacing in appearance, they are nonaggressive
scavengers that feed on the waste of other creatures. This food source has led
to them being spreaders of many types of diseases.

------
Gelbug
------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Temple Access

Gelbugs are roaming insects encased in organic Phazite. These cavern-dwelling
bugs have come to rely on Fuel Gel as a source of sustenance. Over time their
shells have become saturated and crystallized with Fuel Gel. As a result,
their bodies have become highly unstable. Weapon fire will disrupt the gel and
cause the creature to detonate.

----------
Gel Puffer
----------

Found: Bryyo - Gateway

The exposure to Fuel Gel has left the shell of the Gel Puffer highly
susceptible to weapon fire. Gel Puffers have come to rely on the toxic vapors
given off by Fuel Gel for sustenance. They process these gasses and then expel
the excess to stay afloat. The brittle shell of the Puffer, while durable in
appearance, is rather thin and easily damaged.

-------
Gel Ray
-------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Gel Hall

Gel Rays are nonaggressive bioforms native to Bryyo. They are one of the few
creatures who make their home within the caustic pools of Fuel Gel. The unique
exterior and shape of the Gel Ray allow it to withstand and glide through
rivers of gel. Their main source of sustenance is small organisms that exist
within Fuel Gel, but they are known to occassionally leap out to feed on
insects that fly near the gel's surface.

-------
Gragnol
-------

Found: Bryyo - Gateway Hall

Gragnols are vulnerable to most weapons, as they have not developed the durable
exoskeleton found on adult members of the species. They often travel and
attack in groups. If they sense a nearby threat to their hives, they will not
hesitate to advance. Their offensive capabilities are underdeveloped, leaving
the ability to fire pulses of Phazon energy their only form of attack.

-------------
Gragnol Adult
-------------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Gel Processing Site

The large tail that characterizes Gragnol Adults is also their weakness: if
pulled with enough force, it will tear them apart. An explosive blast will
temporarily incapacitate them, making them easier to target. They possess the
ability to generate an energy shield around their bodies, preventing Beam shots
from damaging them. They are cunning predators, flying through their turf in
search of unwary prey. They use bursts of Phazon energy to overwhelm their
targets, and then swoop down to finish them. Maturity has provided them with a
very durable exoskeleton.

------
Hopper
------

Found: Bryyo - Gateway

These aggressive insectoids use small hops to get within striking distance and
then pounce, using their talons to tear away at their prey. From a distance
they will fire bursts of venom at their target. Despite their aggressive
nature, they are somewhat fragile and can be easily dispatched. Because of
this they will commonly hunt in packs.

-----
Korba
-----

Found: Bryyo - Hillside Vista

The Korba is a vicious, resilient bioform. It prefers to lurk above its
hunting grounds, waiting for prey. The Korba relies on the smaller Snatchers
to levitate victims to a point where the Korba can devour them. What the Korba
cannnot digest, it expels to feed the Snatchers. This symbiotic relationship
works well for both Korba and Snatchers.

-------
Mogenar
-------

Found: Bryyo Seed - Bryyo Leviathan Core

Corrupted War Golem reanimated and energized with Phazon. Relies on socketed
energy orbs as a source of power. The orbs themselves have a fragile exterior
but contain pure Phazon energy within. This energy must be completely
overloaded before it will be destroyed. Eliminating all power sources is the
only way to bring Mogenar offline.

---------
Nightbarb
---------

Found: Bryyo - Cliffside Airdock

Nightbarbs are predators, traveling in packs to search for prey. They have the
ability to generate a protective field of energy around their bodies. The
ability is unstable, however. If the field makes contact with another life
force, it will overload. This also consumes the life force of the Nightbarb,
much like a bee's sting ends its life.

----------
Reptilicus
----------

Found: Bryyo - Grand Court Path

Scans indicate a mutation that allows the Reptilicus to teleport over short
distances. Commonly used as a combat tactic to corner and trap their prey.
The Reptilicus appear to suffer from Phazon corruption, and all higher thought
processes have been replaced by savage bloodlust. This corruption has also
increased their resistance to heat-based attacks and Fuel Gel.

-----------------
Reptilicus Hunter
-----------------

Found: Bryyo - Grand Court

Phazon corruption has granted Reptilicus Hunters the ability of cloaking
themselves. They use this to their advantage and will hide or move positions
while cloaked to gain the upper hand in combat. Reptilicus Hunters are fairly
organized despite their primitive nature. Usually attacking in small groups,
they patiently wait for their prey to become isolated in a locked area before
attacking. Their weaponry consists of an energy whip for close-range assaults
and a throwing chakram for long-range attacks. They have adapted to the harsh
climates of Bryyo, and are quite resistant to Fuel Gel and heat-based attacks.

---------
Scorchbug
---------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Temple Reservoir

Scorchbugs are exclusively found on Fuel Gel-producing planets such as Bryyo.
the tiny insects subsist entirely on the volatile gel. Like many creatures
with this diet, they have taken on the ignitable characteristics of their food
source. When shot with any type of weaponry, they burst into a small
explosion, leaving behind only a scorch mark. It is from this trait that they
have earned their name.

-------
Shelbug
-------

Found: Bryyo - Grand Court Path

Shelbugs are slow-moving, roaming insects whose soft bodies are easily damaged.
Until they reach maturity they will not develop their Phazite shell. Unable to
retract into a shell to avoid damage, they must aggressively attack any
potential threat. They will extend sharp spines to fend off attackers or
propel these spines at enemies.

--------
Snatcher
--------

Found: Bryyo - Hillside Vista

Snatchers are cunning, albeit weak, bioforms. Unable to kill most prey on
their own, they rely on the stronger Korba to do the work for them. Snatchers
will swarm onto a target until it is overwhelmed. Once they have their prey,
they use their power to levitate, lifting the victim to a point where the Korba
can devour them. What the Korba cannot digest, it expels to feed the
Snatchers. This symbiotic relationship works well for both Snatchers and the
Korba.

----------
Warp Hound
----------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Gel Processing Site

Warp Hounds are susceptible to low-temperature attacks, due to the nature of
their thermal-energy-driven biosystem. They are often used by Reptilicus as
guards and hunt beasts. They consume Fuel Gel to survive, and can expel blasts
of converted thermal energy to attack and defend. The creatures can teleport
over short distances, disrupting many forms of electronic targeting in the
process.

====================
4.13) SkyTown
====================
-------------------
Aerial Repair Drone
-------------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay

An evolved version of the ground units, these drones were designed to perform
basic maintenance and repair tasks. Their small size and flight capabilities
allow them access to the hardest-to-reach areas of SkyTown. Repair drones are
manufactured and activated every 200 years, with the previous units being
recycled for construction materials.

-------
Databot
-------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay

Databots were designed by the Elysians as a means to record and pass on
historical data. They patrol along their set area until disrupted, and then
project a holographic datafile. However, only those equipped with Chozo-based
visor technology can access this information.

-------------
Defense Drone
-------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Ballista Storage

The Defense Drone is used to secure key areas within SkyTown. The externally
mounted antennas are tied into the unit's optic array. By destroying all of
the antennas, the optic array will overload and be vulnerable for a short
period. The machine's Control Unit is also vulnerable, but must be exposed to
be targeted. Its armor is immune to small-arms fire.

----------------------
"Dragoon" Battle Drone
----------------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Skybridge Hera

The "Dragoon" Battle Drone is a resilient foe, but the thruster controls of the
unit are vulnerable and can be easily ripped off. Originally designed to keep
local aerial bioforms away from delicate instruments, the "Dragoon" is now used
in a combat role. It carries twin Rocket Pods for offense. Durable armor and
a Missile-jamming system help keep the unit safe.

-----------------
Elysian Shriekbat
-----------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Construction Bay

Like all Shriekbats, the Elysian Shriekbat will dive-bomb any creature that
wanders too close and detonate on cantact. However, these are not actual
creatures, but machines made to mimic their real-life counterparts. Designed
centuries ago, their original purpose is unknown. They now roam the hovering
facilities over Elysia, often in small flocks.

------
Helios
------

Found: Elysia Seed - Elysian Leviathan Core

Helio's exterior armor is well shielded, but still vulnerable to Beam weaponry.
Inflicting enough damage will cause him to overheat and expose his
Phazon-enhanced core. This core can be overloaded with Phazon-based energy.
Destruction of the core unit should prove fatal, but is difficult to achieve.
Target is the prime bot of a large group of Swarmbots, all of which are
energized by Phazon. Helios will use the Swarmbots for both offensive and
defensive measures. Assuming different formations will allow for various forms
of attack.

------------
Repair Drone
------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Aurora Lift

The original version of the Elysian Repair Drone. Because of their limited
movement systems, these units quickly proved to be insufficient in performing
the necessary maintenance duties. Used as a base design, the aerial mode was
created to address all flaws with the original version. Made obsolete by the
aerial model, all production and manufacturing was halted over 150 years ago.
Only a handful of these units remain active.

----------
Sky Puffer
----------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Maintenance Shaft AU

The external shell of a Sky Puffer is incredibly fragile, susceptible to most
small-arms fire. Only a few shots from basic weapons can damage it. Sky
Puffers are native to the planet Elysia. They feed on the various noxious
gasses in the atmosphere. They are especially fond of Phazon gas.

--------
Steambot
--------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Steambot Barracks

The Steambot's lightly armored exterior can be damaged by any weapon.
High-temperature weapons are particularly effective, and can render them inert
and beyond repair. Unlike their lightweight cousins, they are made of durable
metals and cannot be tossed around. Steambots serve as combat units for
Steamlords. They are armed with kinetic-beam pistols, Missile racks, and can
use their tool-arms in close combat. Damaged units can be restored by
Steamlords.

---------
Steamlord
---------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Hub Access

Steamlords command the worker drones of SkyTown. They also repair them when
they malfunction or break down. Lightly armored, they rely on their cloaking
field to evade their enemies. They can generate localized EMP fields to hinder
enemy visor systems.

-----------
Steamspider
-----------

Found: Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Xenoresearch B

Steamspiders were created by the Steamlords as basic light laborers. They have
since went rogue, and now run wild in SkyTown. Though of minimal threat alone,
a swarm of them can be a nuisance.

--------
Swarmbot
--------

Found: Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Gearworks

Swarmbots tend to travel in groups. They can evade many inbound attacks, and
can perform aerial maneuvers that make them nearly impossible to damage. They
can generate pulses of energy to damage or disrupt enemy targets. As a
desperate measure, they will perform suicide runs on an enemy.

------
Tinbot
------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Arrival Station

Tinbots are made from a lightweight metal and can easily be knocked around from
explosions or high-speed impacts. This metal is also quite vulnerable to heat
and can be melted by high-temperature weapons. Converted for security duty,
the Tinbots now patrol SkyTown tirelessly. They are armed with kinetic-beam
pistols and can use their tool-arms in close combat.

--------------------
Transportation Drone
--------------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay

Class D Transportation Drones are used for the distribution of supplies and
materials across all of SkyTown. Upon activation each unit is assigned a set
position along a transit route that it will use exclusively. The constant
upkeep of the facility requires that they continuously deliver their shipments
to their destinations at a steady pace.

=========================
4.14) Space Pirate
=========================
--------------------
Advanced Aerotrooper
--------------------

Found: Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Chozo Observatory

When the going gets tough, the tough put on armor. Advanced Aerotroopers wear
an extra layer of ablative armor that is susceptible to explosive blasts. Like
regular Aerotroopers, they wield two Remote Attack Pods in combat. These are
outfitted with a Particle Cannon and a Gel Bomb Rack. Gel Bombs stick to their
targets until detonation. High-velocity movement can remove Gel Bombs.

-----------------------
Advanced Pirate Trooper
-----------------------

Found: Bryyo - Ancient Courtyard

Advanced Pirate Troopers wear an additional layer of ablative armor. Explosive
attacks are recommended to break the armor away. Basic armament includes an
assault rifle and energy scythe, both powered by Phazon. EMP grenades are
often employed against power-armored foes. A new Dash Jet system provides
increased mobility.

-----------------------
Advanced Shield Trooper
-----------------------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo

Advanced Shield Troopers wear an extra layer of ablative armor: it is
susceptible to explosive attacks. In addition to their armor, they wield a
portable battle shield. While the shield provides excellent protection against
incoming fire, it can also be easily ripped off. Phazon-based attacks are
capable of destroying the shield.

--------
Aeromine
--------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Repair Bay Shaft

Aeromines suffer from a design flaw -- their shield- and beam-weapon units use
the same power source, allowing only one to function at a time. This exposes
the unit to damage when it fires at enemies. Aeromines were originally
designed to take the role of sentry for Space Pirates, but have since been put
to use in combat as well. Because of the initial design flaw, these units do
not pose much of a threat. After the executions of the first design team, the
new pirate designers swore to correct this flaw with great haste.

-----------
Aerotrooper
-----------

Found: Norion - Cargo Dock A

Aerotroopers are dangerous foes, but their lack of armor leaves them vulnerable
to explosive blasts. A weakness also lies in the jet pack: igniting it will
allow the pack to be separated from the pilot. They use twin Remote Attack
Pods to engage targets. The Attack Pods are capable of using a Particle Cannon
or a Helix Missile Pod. They can tap their Phazon power unit to warp from
point to point.

-------------------
Armored Aerotrooper
-------------------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo

Armored Aerotroopers are deployed in harsh combat zones. Their armor is
resilient, but susceptible to explosive blasts. In battle they use twin Remote
Attack Pods to engage targets. They are equipped with a Particle Cannon and a
Helix Missile Pod. They can tap their Phazon power unit to warp from point to
point. A weakness lies in the jet pack: ignite and separate it from the pilot
to neutralize the target.

----------------------
Armored Pirate Militia
----------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Xenoresearch Lab

Members of the Armored Pirate Militia have been granted lightweight armorsuits
for combat use. While this provides some additional resistance to Beam
weapons, they are still vulnerable to explosive attacks. Members of the
Armored Pirate Militia are mostly inept soldiers who have yet to die in combat.

----------------------
Armored Pirate Trooper
----------------------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo

Armored Pirate Troopers are equipped with a standard armorsuit. It provides
adequate protection against Beam attacks but is vulnerable to explosive blasts.
They are outfitted with all the basic pirate armaments. This includes an
assault rifle and energy scythe, both powered by Phazon. EMP grenades are
often employed against power-armored foes. A new Dash Jet system provides
increased mobility.
----------------------
Armored Shield Trooper
----------------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Spire

Armored Shield Troopers are equipped with a standard armorsuit. It is
resilient, but still vulnerable to explosive attacks. In addition to their
armor, they wield a portable shield. Removing the shield leaves them open to
all attacks. The shield is also vulnerable to Phazon-based attacks.

-------------------
Assault Aerotrooper
-------------------

Found: Pirate Research - Craneyard

Only the best can join the ranks of the Assault Aerotroopers. Heavily armored,
they are resistant to most weapon systems. Their unique armor is able to
deflect all Missile attacks, but can still be damaged by Beam weapons. Like
regular Aerotroopers, they wield two Remote Attack Pods in combat. One is
equipped with a Particle Cannon, the other with a Gel Bomb Rack. Gel Bombs
stick to their targets until detonation. High-velocity movement can remove Gel
Bombs.

----------------------
Assault Pirate Trooper
----------------------

Found: Bryyo - Ancient Courtyard

The Assault Pirate Troopers are some of the best the pirate military has to
offer. They are heavily armed and are resistant to most attacks. Their unique
armor will deflect all Missile fire, but is still damaged by Beam attacks.
Basic armament includes an assault rifle and energy scythe, both powered by
Phazon. EMP grenades are often employed against power-armored foes. A new
Dash Jet system provides increased mobility.

----------------------
Assault Shield Trooper
----------------------

Found: Pirate Research - Metroid Processing

Assault Shield Troopers are heavily armored and resistant to most weapon
systems. Their unique armor will deflect Missile attacks, but not Beam fire.
In addition to their armor, they wield a portable battle shield. Their battle
shield provides protection against all standard weapon fire, but can be easily
torn off. Phazon-based weapons are capable of destroying the shield.

---------------
Aurora Unit 313
---------------

Found: Phaaze - Sanctum

Aurora 313 has somehow been fused with the bioessence of Dark Samus. While
combat shields protect most of the unit, a weak spot has been detected at the
cable junction. Damaging the unit's core will expose this point, but the core
itself is protected by an armored hatch. Tentacle ports can be damaged to
initiate stunning cerebral-feedback pulses within the target. While
incapacitated, the hatch will be unprotected and able to be pulled open. This
unit has been heavily mutated by Phazon exposure. It appears to be
symbiotically connected to the planet Phaaze as well.

----------------
Berserker Knight
----------------

Found: Bryyo - Ancient Courtyard

A Berserker Knight's Phazite armor must be removed before unit can be damaged:
only the Phazon-based projectile attacks the creature fires can destroy it.
The Berserker Knight serves as a shocking example of the lengths the Space
Pirates will go to in their quest for dominance. Heavily mutated by Phazon
exposure, the unit is nearly mindless, driven by battle lust.

--------------
Berserker Lord
--------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5

Berserker Lords are highly resistant to damage. Their shoulders are the only
unprotected area vulnerable to standard weapon fire. Their main defense lies
in their head-mounted Phazite plating, which can only be destroyed by the
projectiles it fires. Berskerker Lords are a desperate measure, designed to
exploit Phazon as much as possible. The few Berserker Knights that survive the
highest level of corruption are promoted to Lord status. Lords are
distinguished by their ornate Phazite plating and the Phazon reserves they
carry on their backs.

---------------
Commando Pirate
---------------

Found: Pirate Research - Scrapvault

Commando Pirates use the best gear available: only Beams of the highest
temperature can penetrate the layer of Phazite in the armorsuit. All of the
weaponry is powered by Phazon. Each commando has a combat cloaking field,
along with boost thrusters and a personal teleporter. The Phazite armor they
wear makes them extremely resistant to damage in combat.

---------
Crawlmine
---------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Xenoresearch Lab

Crawlmines are not terribly bright and rely on suicide strikes as their main
form of attack. They were designed to patrol small areas such as ventilation
shafts and maintenance tunnels. Though relatively harmless alone, they can be
dangerous in large numbers.

---------
Crawltank
---------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Xenoresearch Lab

Crawltanks are mobile, ground-based defense drones, but are easily destroyed by
standard weapon fire. They can be equipped with different cannons, including a
Phazon Beam system. They are not built for sustained combat, and are better
suited for light patrol and security roles.

----------
Dark Samus
----------

Found: Phaaze - Sanctum

Target is composed of pure Phazon energy and is highly unstable. Scans
indicate that Hypermode attacks are capable of disrupting her, likely a result
of Hypermode being energized by Samus's body. Dark Samus is capable of
generating "echoes" of herself to aid her in battle. These units will be used
as increased firepower and act as distractions while she replenishes her
energy: they should be destroyed immediately. She is capable of absorbing
energy from Phaaze to replenish her own.

---------
Gandrayda
---------

Found: Pirate Research - Proving Grounds

Gandrayda's ability to shape-shift has been greatly enhanced by Phazon
exposure, allowing her to assume a number of deadly forms at will. These new
forms come with a cost, as she also inherits their weaknesses. A mistress of
stealth, she will employ her personal cloaking field often, setting up her next
deadly attack. An advanced visor system may be able to detect her location.

----
Ghor
----

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay

Ghor's energy shield is capable of repelling all weapon fire, but the
back-mounted generator is exposed to attack. Overloading the generator could
expose the well-protected critical systems behind his battle armor. Ghor's
arsenal is considerable. Plasma-based beam weapons, attack claws, and a
multimissile system are at the cyborg's disposal in battle. These battle
systems can be combined and fired at once as a devastating alpha strike.
Target is also capable of high-speed ramming attack, although this is
potentially dangerous if performed over a slippery surface.

-------------------
"Jolly Roger" Drone
-------------------

Found: Norion - Generator A

The "Jolly Roger" Drone is designed for quick aerial maneuvers, but this comes
at the cost of survivability. The fragile armor of the unit is vulnerable to
weapon fire of any type. The Jolly Roger is based on Federation tech, but has
been considerably upgraded. Powered by Phazon, the mechanoid can be a serious
threat in battle, especially in groups.

--------
Jumpmine
--------

Found: Norion - Conduit A

The Jumpmine was developed by the Space Pirates as a cheap alternative to an
armed trooper. The Jumpmine scans its surroundings until it detects an enemy
target. It then triggers a small thruster, "jumping" a set distance in the
air. Once launched, its weapon pod is engaged, saturating the local area with
fire. It explodes afterward to prevent use by enemy forces.

------------
Korakk Beast
------------

Found: Bryyo - Jousting Field

Korakks are prized by the Space Pirates, who use them as cavalry mounts. Their
belly is occasionally vulnerable, but guarded from all sides. Finding a way to
get underneath it and attacking would be effective. Nerve endings in the tail
can be stressed through grappling, but only when the tail is extended. The
interior of a Korakk's mouth, as well as the tip of their tongue, contains
sensitive nerve clusters. Attacking these points could temporarily
incapacitate the creature. They can emit Phazon energy through their feet and
tongue. The Phazite armor they wear will repel most damage.

-----------
Meta Ridley
-----------

Found: Norion - Generator C

Target's body is covered with incredibly durable armorskin, making it difficult
to damage. All parts of the body are protected except for the mouth, where
Meta Ridley fires his plasma-powered weaponry. Observing target may reveal
additional target points. Target will use powerful plasma-based ranged
attacks, along with potent melee strikes.

------------
Omega Ridley
------------

Found: Pirate Seed - Pirate Homeworld Leviathan Core

Revived and regenerated through Phazon exposure, Omega Ridley has been
energized to a new combat threat level. Target retains extremely durable,
Phazon-enhanced armorskin, as well as protective armored plating. Scans
indicate that a recent injury has not fully healed: expose and target wound to
inflict damage. Target will act to protect this vulnerability: seek ways to
stun the enemy and leave it open for deadly attacks.

----------------------
Phazon Harvester Drone
----------------------

Found: Pirate Mines - Phazon Harvesting

Man-portable weaponry cannot penetrate the thick hull of the Phazon Harvester.
The anti-air weapon system is vulnerable, but overloading it with weapon fire
will only disable the drone temporarily. The pirates converted several
Goliath-class heavy assault drones into Phazon-collecting units. The drone can
use its Harvesting Beam Cannon for defense, and is equipped with an
anti-aircraft missile defense system.

------------------
Pirate Cargo Drone
------------------

Found: Pirate Command - Landing Site Bravo

Pirate Cargo Drones were designed to assist with the transporting of supplies
throughout the Pirate Homeworld. Their aerial capabilities allow them to
navigate the underground catacombs with relative ease. Cargo often consists of
items too dangerous or volatile to be moved by hand.

----------------
Pirate Commander
----------------

Found: Pirate Command - Transit Station Leviathan

Commanders make heavy use of their personal teleporter, moving to favorable
positions and across the battlefield, giving orders and support as needed.
They carry all of the weaponry and gear used by commandos, with the exception
of their armor, which is forged out of ultrarare Red Phazite. A rare breed,
Pirate Commanders have lived to rise to the ruling caste on the Pirate
Homeworld. Each has been a commando for at least ten years.

-------------
Pirate Hussar
-------------

Found: Bryyo - Jousting Field

Hussars are unusually brave for Space Pirates, willing to ride the deadly
Korakk beast into combat. Their Phazon Energy Lances are deadly at any range.
Hussars and their mounts have a strange bond. If a Hussar is slain, his
Korrakk will fight to avenge his death.

--------------
Pirate Militia
--------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Flag Bridge Access

The pirates have not enhanced all of their fighting forces. They continue to
use militia units in battle. These groups are made up of slaves and criminals,
and do not receive the Phazon enhancements given to the regular army troopers.
They are surprisingly obedient to the upper castes within the pirate military.
Rumor has it that disobedient militia members often find themselves as dinner
for regular army troopers.

--------------
Pirate Trooper
--------------

Found: Norion - Cargo Dock A

The Space Pirate military forces continue to use Phazon, including a new Phazon
enhancement system. Basic armament includes an assault rifle and energy
scythe, both powered by Phazon. EMP grenades are often employed against
power-armored foes. A new Dash Jet system provides increased mobility.

-----------
Puffer Mine
-----------

Found: Pirate Research - Airshaft

Avoid contact with the Puffer Mine. These creatures are a cybernetically
enhanced version of the Puffers native to the Pirate Homeworld. Engineered by
Space Pirates, they are now used as patrol animals. Their bodies have been
filled with Phazon gas to be used as a defensive measure. If their shell is
broken, their bodies explode and send a cloud of toxic gas out all around them.
Nearby attackers rarely escape the volatile fumes.

--------------------
Remorse-Class Turret
--------------------

Found: Bryyo - Generator Hall South

Fast targets can evade the limited targeting system of the "Remorse" turret.
The Space Pirates have replaced their dated "Humility" turrets with a new unit
designed by top engineers. Powered by Phazon, the "Remorse" unit is capable of
withstanding more damage than the earlier model.

------
Rundas
------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo

Phazon exposure has greatly enhanced Rundas and his ability to generate ice,
making him deadly at any range. His durable ice armor has one weak point --
the neck. Serious physical stress can weaken and remove it, exposing Rundas to
attack. This weak point cannot be seized as long as Rundas is active. He can
create frozen objects at will, and can freeze Missiles in midflight. Smaller
ice-based projectiles can be shot down, but it is recommended to evade larger
attacks. Be advised: Rundas can trigger a Hypermode state, elevating his
threat level to match your own.

--------
Scritter
--------

Found: Pirate Command - Lift Hub

Scritters are common vermin that are usually found underground. They tend to
nest in dark places and come out only to feed. Their main source of sustenance
is Phazon, a weakness pirate slaves use against them. Scritters will often be
caught in simple traps set out by the starving pirate slaves who then feed on
the small creatures. But the pirates rarely have the last laugh, as some
internal organs of the Scritter will release a toxic fluid when bitten. Those
who become violently ill because of this are often said to have a case of "the
scritters."

---------------------
Shield Pirate Militia
---------------------

Found: Norion - Cargo Dock A

Some members of the Pirate Militia have been granted use of regular
army-trooper equipment. This unit has been given the portable battle shield.
Its portability is its weakness, however. Remove it from the pirate's grip to
eliminate its primary defense system. The shield is also susceptible to
Phazon-based attacks.

---------------------
Shield Pirate Trooper
---------------------

Found: Norion - Conduit A

The Space Pirates have developed a man-portable battle shield that is resistant
to most small-arms fire. Its portability is its weakness, however. Remove it
from the pirate's grip to eliminate its primary defense system. Phazon-based
attacks are capable of destroying the shield.

--------------------------
Space Pirate Assault Skiff
--------------------------

Found: Bryyo - Field Access

The fast-moving Space Pirate Assault Skiff is used to support troops in combat.
The skiff is mounted with a tribeam cannon, which is capable of firing powerful
charged shots. However, the cannon itself is unprotected and can be easily
overloaded. This modified version of the ATC has sacrificed durability for
speed, and often employs hit-and-run tactics.

----------------
Space Pirate ATC
----------------

Found: Norion - Cargo Dock A

The Space Pirate Armored Tactical Carrier (ATC) is surprisingly well built and
armored. A forward-mounted heat vent is its only vulnerable spot. Tribeam
cannons help the unit deal out damage while on missions as well. Designed for
rapid transit to and from hot zones, the unit is not designed for long-term
engagements. It has a relatively small fuel supply, a sacrifice made for
heavier armament and armor.

-------------------------
Space Pirate Boarding Pod
-------------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Port Observation Deck

Pirate boarding pods are crude, even by their standards. They are composed of
an aged propulsion drive, a cramped crew-transport module, and a nose cone
packed with high explosives. The pilot guides the pod toward the target ship,
then rams it, detonating the explosives upon impact in an attempt to breach the
hull. If a breach is created, the crew within exits the pod.

Of course, mishaps occur. Sometimes the explosives go off prematurely,
exposing the crew to vacuum. Other times the detonation fails to occur,
leaving the pod to bounce off the target's hull. The shielding between
explosives and crew is substandard, and often fails to protect the crew from
the explosion. The pod's nickname of "Space Coffin" is well earned.

-------------------
Urtragian Shriekbat
-------------------

Found: Pirate Research - Scrapvault

Urtragian Shriekbats are fiercely territorial insectoids and will dive-bomb
anything that wanders near. This attack is fatal for the Shriekbat, as the
impact sets off a discharge of thermal energy. Because of their high internal
temperatures, they tend to seek cool climates to dwell in. They have come to
seek shelter inside the many pirate facilities located on the Pirate Homeworld.

Radical mutation has removed the ability to fly from this strain of Metroid,
but its vulnerability to cold remains. Subject now uses its powerful legs for
locomotion. Legs contain sharp formations of Phazite, which the creature uses
to slice through enemy defenses.

------
Jelsac
------

Found: Phaaze - Entry Canyon

Jelsacs are aggressive creatures, roaming their territory and defending it from
all comers. When provoked, a Jelsac will begin to expand its body, quickly
filling it with a caustic, Phazon-based venom. This continues until the Jelsac
explodes, sending a spray of deadly fluid in all directions.

----------------
Leviathan Infant
----------------

Found: Phaaze - Genesis Chamber

Leviathans are the children of Phaaze. They are bioforms that begin life deep
within the planet, inside the base of a serpentine organ that serves as a womb.
The Leviathan will remain in here, feeding on an endless supply of Phazon,
until it has developed its Phazon core.

The developed core marks the Leviathan's transition into adolescence and its
departure from the womb. The serpentine organ moves the adolescent from deep
inside Phaaze and releases it closer to the planet's surface. Here the bioform
will continue to grow and mature beneath its older siblings. As time passes
and the older ones are launched into space, the Leviathan will slowly make its
way to the planet's surface. It is here the Leviathan will reach full
maturity. Once Phaaze has located a planetary target to corrupt, it will
launch the Leviathan into space.

The Leviathan is capable of interstellar travel, creating wormholes in space to
expedite the journey. Instinctively, it homes in on its planetary target.
Shortly after impact, the bioform dies, leaving its armored shell to protect
the Phazon core. Before it dies, the bioform often attracts and entralls a
large local predator. After mutating it through intense Phazon exposure, it
compels the creature to protect the core. The core then begins to seep into
the planet, replacing the local ecosystem with one based on Phazon.

-------------
Liquid Phazon
-------------

Found: Norion - Conduit B

Liquid Phazon appears to be a semisentient blob of Phazon. Their young are
known as Phazon Grubs, and eventually metamorph into their adult, or "puddle"
form. They exude a toxic chemical to protect themselves from predators.
Contact with the substance can be deadly. They can alter their shape in a
limited fashion, usually to avoid incoming attacks.

---------------
Metroid Hatcher
---------------

Found: Norion - Generator B

Mutation has robbed the Metroid Hatcher of its ability to phase, but has
provided it a hardened outer shell which has identical attributes as Phazite.
This shell protects the creature's heart, located at the core of its head. The
Hatcher's tentacles are quite dangerous, and can leech energy from any targets
they connect to. However, the tentacles are also the creature's weak point.
If all its tentacles are ripped from its body, it will perish. As such, it
will attempt to recover energy by retracting them into its shell when they take
damage. While the Hatcher's tentacles are retracted, it is unable to attack,
relying on the Phazon Metroids it spawns from its mouth for protection. If the
interior of the creature is hit while its mouth is open, it loses its strength.
The Hatcher's tentacles can be ripped off if they are pulled at this time.

--------
Miniroid
--------

Found: G.F.S. Valhalla - Hangar A Access

Miniroids, tiny and weak, will travel in a flock for protection. They float
and fly about in seach of sustenance. Those that suvive will grow quickly,
becoming the feared parasites known throughout the cosmos as Phazon Metroids.

--------
Phaazoid
--------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Construction Bay

Phaazoids are masses of Phazon energy that form after a Leviathan has been
destroyed. They still retain a small bit of sentience and are mindlessly
aggressive. The only way to damage a Phaazoid is by attacking it with
Phazon-based attacks. However, this has a side effect of causing the creature
to split into two smaller forms. Once the Phaazoid has split small enough, it
will simply fly at a target and detonate on contact. It is said that some
Phaazoids may split into a rare, crimson-colored form.

--------
Phaz-Ing
--------

Found: G.F.S. Valhalla - Security Station

Phaz-Ing bodies are weak to physical stress and can be easily pulled apart.
These morphing blobs of Phazon often prefer to stay in puddle form and will
only shift out to attack. Their ability to move over all types of terrain
allows them to position themselves at a distance before assaulting with bursts
of Phazon energy.

-----------
Phazon Grub
-----------

Found: Pirate Research - Scrapvault

Phazon Grubs are drawn to bioenergy in all forms, especially Phazon. They are
immune to its mutagenic effects, and carry it in their bodies as they roam.
Their bite can infect the victim with Phazon corruption, making them plague
bearers of a sort.

-------------
Phazon Hopper
-------------

Found: G.F.S. Valhalla - MedLab Alpha

Phazon Hoppers are more resilient than other Hoppers, but can still be damaged
by standard weaponry. The crystallized Phazon covering their bodies provides
additional protection from attack. Like other Hoppers, these are capable of
long-range assaults. They will spit bursts of Phazon venom at prey from a
distance.

------------
Phazon Leech
------------

Found: Elysia Seed - Landing Site Charlie [Elysia Seed landing site]

Phazon Leeches thrive on the bioenergy drained from weakened and dead prey.
They often roam in groups, leaving behind toxic trails as they slide across
terrain in search of sustenance. Their bodies are soft and unprotected, making
them easy targets to dispatch.

--------------
Phazon Metroid
--------------

Found: Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Xenoresearch B

Like all Metroids, great cold can immobilize the Phazon Metroid and leave it
vulnerable to attacks. If the creature begins to feed, a concussive blast
should be able to knock it away. Heavy exposure to Phazon energy has mutated
this strain of Tallon Metroid. Subject can shift its body into a phased state,
allowing it to ignore solid matter. The creature can emit bursts of Phazon
energy, and will drain the life energy from its prey.

----------------
Phazon Nightbarb
----------------

Found: Bryyo - Gateway

Phazon Nightbarbs have enhanced aerial mobility that makes them all but
impossible to hit with normal shots. The group will work together to create a
powerful energy burst that they will fire at their prey. Detonating the energy
charge with normal attacks before it fires should destroy them. Phazon
Nightbarbs are the result of Nightbarbs being exposed to Phazon radiation.
These mutations look similar to their uncorrupted counterparts, but are
characterized by their greatly increased offensive and defensive capabilities.

--------------
Phazon Pillbug
--------------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Gel Processing Site

Pillbugs are commonly found in small spaces, often making traveling through
tunnels troublesome. Bombs are effective against them, however. They are
underground vermin, able to energize their hard-shelled bodies with Phazon.
Once charged, they will roll into a defensive shape and charge their enemies.

-------------
Phazon Puffer
-------------

Found: Phaaze - Cavern Beta Access

This particular breed of Puffer has been heavily mutated by exposure to Phazon,
giving it strange new abilities. As it flies, it searches the area for Phazon
energy to consume. The Puffer will absorb this energy out of any nearby
bioform and energize itself. The Puffer will then use the energy to fire a
powerful attack back at their target. This ability comes with a price -- the
Phazon energy comprising their body is rather unstable and easily disrupted by
any type of weapon fire.

----------------
Phazon Shriekbat
----------------

Found: G.F.S. Valhalla - Hangar A Access

Even more aggressive than normal species, Phazon Shriekbats will not hesitate
to attack any creature that wanders too close. Their dive-bomb attack erupts
in a burst of Phazon energy, which usually proves fatal to weaker organisms.
These Shriekbats are mainly found in areas with high amounts of Phazon.
Instead of the usual insects and small creatures Shriekbats usually feed on,
these have come to rely on Phazon as a food source.

------------
Red Phaazoid
------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Construction Bay

Red Phaazoids, like their more common siblings, can only be damaged by
Phazon-based weaponry. They are wildly aggressive and will split into smaller
forms when attacked. Their reddish appearance is the result of an unstable
energy core, an uncommon mutation that occurs when a Phaazoid is formed.
Overloading their core with Phazon energy will destroy them, causing them to
yield a rare item.

-----------
Tangle Weed
-----------

Found: Phaaze - Drop Shaft

A simple form of plant life of which there are many species across many worlds.
While each breed may have characteristics native to their respective ecology,
they all possess identical behavior. Tangle Weeds constantly sway their
brightly colored leaves to attract potential prey to land on them. The
thousands of microscopic barbs lining the Tangle Weed's body will snare and
inject a paralyzing toxin into their victim. While small organisms are unable
to escape, Tangle Weeds lack the strength to do anything more than hinder the
movement of larger life-forms. When attacked, they will retract into the
ground until they no longer sense a threat.

Phazon
------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - MedLab Delta

Phazon is a substance of extragalactic origin. It is a highly radioactive ore
with extreme mutagenic properties. It has certain biological qualities,
including the ability to reproduce itself. Exposure to Phazon often affects
the brains of sentient beings, causing erratic, destructive behavior. It is
also a potent source of energy, surpassing even Fuel Gel in pure output
potential. It must be handled carefully, as it can cause "Phazon sickness" if
used incorrectly.

-------------------------
Phazon Enhancement Device
-------------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - MedLab Delta

The Phazon Enhancement Device is designed to harness the energy of Phazon
minerals, originally discovered on Aether, for a new Federation weapon system.
It is being tested by a GF Marine battalion stationed in the Norion system.
Marines can initiate an energy siphon from a supply of Phazon carried in a
backpack into their armorsuits. This allows them to temporarily enhance the
exoskeletal and weapon systems of their armorsuits. To date, no marines have
displayed signs of "Phazon sickness."

-------------
Planet Norion
-------------

Found: Norion - Cargo Dock B

Though located on the fringe of the Federation, the planet Norion is of great
importance. The military maintains a strong presence in the sector, and the
base on Norion is often the first line of defense against enemies that operate
outside of GF space.

------------
Planet Bryyo
------------

Found: Norion - Data Storage

Federation scouts discovered the planet Bryyo ten years ago. The planet's
alignment makes most of its surface uninhabitable: 48% of the world is always
exposed to the sun, with another 48% shrouded in permanent night. The
remaining 4% lies in an equatorial ring of fertile jungle, where the bulk of
Bryyo's bioforms dwell.

Fuel Gel is common on Bryyo, which makes it extremely important to the
Federation. The local bioforms are quite primitive, though there are ruins
that indicate an advanced culture thrived on Bryyo in centuries past.

-------
SkyTown
-------

Found: Norion - Data Storage

SkyTown is a network of advanced structures floating in the atmosphere of
planet Elysia. Most of the base is dedicated to research, from a local to
interstellar level. The powerful sensors of SkyTown provide useful military
intelligence data along with research information. An Aurora Unit analyzes the
vast amount of data collected by the station: it is supported by the Elysians,
a group of sentient mechanoids that live within the base.

-------------
Hunter Rundas
-------------

Found: Norion - Docking Hub Alpha

Subject is a native of Phrygis, a moon of planet Bes III known primarily for
ice mining. The Phrygisian ability to manipulate and generate ice has come in
handy in subject's career as a Bounty Hunter. Intel suggests he enjoys
hunting, to the point where he keeps trophies from all of the targets he's
successfully captured or killed in his career. Subject is proud, cocky, and
arrogant, and considers himself without rivals in his field.

-----------
Hunter Ghor
-----------

Found: Norion - Munitions Storage

Subject is a veteran of the liberation war of Wotan VII. Only 6% of subject's
birth-body remains: the rest is state-of-the-art cyberware. Despite his
career and heavy cybernetic modification, subject is known for his high level
of empathy and compassion. Ghor is rather gentle and approaches situations
logically, but is not the most skilled of fighters. Intel suggests he even has
a sense of humor. Subject has often championed the weak, poor, and
downtrodden, working for free or giving bounty money earned to the victims of
his targets.

Subject can merge his cybernetic body into larger mechanisms, including
gunships and fightercraft. This merging will alter Ghor's personality, and he
will become incredibly aggressive and violent. Data indicates a high
proficiency with computer infiltration and manipulation. High level of
mechanical empathy with artificial intelligence.

----------------
Hunter Gandrayda
----------------

Found: Norion - Munitions Storage

Subject homeworld unknown. Possesses metamorphic ability similar to the
biomorphs of Jovia XII. Can assume the form and abilities of most living
things, including bioforms considerably larger than the subject.

Scans are unable to determine subject's age, but psych eval suggests a high
degree of youthfulness. Intel suggests that bounty hunting is akin to a sport
for her, one she enjoys considerably. Subject perceives the veteran Hunter
Samus Aran as her chief rival, a rival she intends to surpass as soon as
possible.

------------------------
Olympus-Class Battleship
------------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Security Station

The Olympus-class battleship is the first Federation capital ship designed to
use an onboard Aurora Unit. They are the flagships of the fleets they serve
in, usually commanded by an officer of flag rank. Battleships of this class
have smaller crews than most ships of a similar size due to the presence of the
Aurora Unit. The space saved in crew support is used for more battle systems.
The enormous vessels are powered by Fuel Gel, making the scarce commodity of
extreme value to the Federation military.

------------------
Tallon IV Incident
------------------

Found: G.F.S. Valhalla - Stairwell

Planet Tallon IV, formerly a Chozo colony, was struck by a stellar object 50
years ago. Object was later determined to contain large quantities of Phazon.
The Chozo were able to stave off the spread of Phazon, at the cost of many
Chozo lives. The survivors abandoned the planet, fleeing to an unknown
location. Decades later, Hunter Samus Aran responded to a distress call in the
sector and discovered a Space Pirate Phazon mining station there. Aran
eliminated both the pirate and Phazon threat from the planet, though not
without cost.

-----------------
Valhalla Incident
-----------------

Found: Norion - Munitions Storage

The G.F.S. Valhalla was on a training mission after receiving new crew at
Tivus. We believe the Valhalla was ambushed en route to the training base by a
fleet of pirate vessels. Data suggests the pirates were using upgraded
starships powered by Phazon: that plus superior numbers were more than the
Valhalla could handle. Current whereabouts of the Valhalla are unknown: she
is presumed destroyed in action.

--------------
Anhur Incident
--------------

Found: G.F.S. Valhalla - Control Room

Planet Aether, home of the Luminoth, was struck by a "Phazon Meteor" five
decades ago. The impact had catastrophic effects on the already unstable
planet, creating a "dark twin" of the planet and a dire race known as the Ing.
A brutal war between the twin planets took place, with the Ing gaining the
upper hand. The G.F.S. Tyr went to the sector to investigate pirate activity,
but were forced to make an emergency landing on Aether. Shortly after, the
entire crew of Tyr was attacked and annihilated by the Ing. Hunter Samus Aran
was sent to investigate, and wound up entangled in the local conflict. Aran
fought against both Space Pirates and Ing, and arose victorious. Aether's
"dark twin" vanished, taking with it the Ing horde, and the planet's peace was
finally restored.

After the Aether Incident, the Federation sent the G.F.S. Anhur back to Aether
to deal with the pirate base. Upon arrival, the crew and marines of the Anhur
assisted the native Luminoth in dismantling an abandoned Space Pirate mining
facility. During the operation, the crew detected the presence of Phazon. The
ship's crew investigated and collected several kilograms of ore, which would
later lead to the development of the PED.

4.22) Bryyo Data
=======================
----------
Golden Age
----------

Found: Bryyo - Reliquary II

Look now to the past, and to the time of peace on Bryyo. See the age of gold,
when our world was a paradise unrivaled. Hear the songs of joy fill the
streets of the Royal City, as the people honor the coming of Bryyus the First,
the Liberator. Behold the launch of our first ship to the stars on that day,
and witness the rise of Science, of a New Bryyo. See this, and see the
beginning of our downfall.

--------------
Age of Science
--------------

Found: Bryyo - Grand Court

The ships of Bryyo sped to the stars, in all directions, bearing the banner of
peace. Soon we found stellar brethren in the Chozo, the Luminoth, and the
Ylla. Starborne knowledge came to Bryyo, and we gladly sent our wisdom to our
new friends in return. The hearts of Bryyo were filled with pride, and they
honored the Lords of Science for all the wonders we provided. As the time of
New Bryyo came to be, the old ways faded. The cries of joy from those who
honored Science covered the angry shouts of those who mourned the old ways, the
Primal Traditions.

-------------
Age of Schism
-------------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Main Lift

In time, the wonders of Science were not enough for those who held the Primal
Traditions in their hearts. The warnings of the Chozo -- to seek balance
between old and new ways -- were not heeded by the Lords of Science, myself
included. We forged on, ignorant of the rage in the hearts of the Primals.
The time came when Sfimas, First Lord of Science, denounced the Primals and
their Traditions in the center of the Royal City. It was as flame to a dry
forest. The Age of Science ended, and the Age of Schism was born.

----------
Age of War
----------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Gel Processing Site

In the beginning, the conflicts were small, out of sight for most on Bryyo.
But they grew, slowly but as steady as the coming of the sun. Diplomacy gave
way to brutality, and war came to our world. The Lords of Science turned their
minds from exploration to destruction, and unleashed horrors unknown upon their
Primal enemies. In retaliation, the Primals turned to the darkest of ancient
powers, cursing us, the Science Lords, and all who served our cause. Friends
from the stars tried desperately to end the conflict, all in vain. The people
of war would not be denied.

--------
Downfall
--------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Temple Generator

Look now to the time of battle, tribe against tribe. See fertile land swept
clean of all living things by arcane nightmares or the hellish blasts of
Science.  See the giant stone Mogenars do battle, destroying the land with
their titanic blows. And hear the undying scream of a planet wracked by
darkest war. The battles waged endlessly, and the resources needed to sustain
our war machines were great. Bryyo too had become a casualty of the war: the
air was filled with the smoke of battle and the soil soaked with the toxins of
pollution. Calamity after calamity visited the folk of Bryyo, until a world
once known for wonders became a scarred husk under the stars. Only a small
region remained habitable, and to it the survivors went, bringing the war with
them.

-------
Victory
-------

Found: Bryyo - Hall of the Golems

We, the Lords of Science, mishandled the use of our knowledge. The devastation
of the war robbed us of the rare resources necessary to fuel our war engines.
Without our machines we were unable to stand up to the Primal armies, and they
overran the enclaves of many Science Lords. What few remained fled into dark
places, polluted wastelands even the bravest of Primal warriors would not dare
enter. Whatever joy there may have been amongst the victorious was quickly
stamped out by the grim reality surrounding them. Bryyo, their cradle, their
sacred home... was on the verge of death.

------------------
Struggle of Exiles
------------------

Found: Bryyo - Burrow

As the followers of the Primal Traditions celebrated their victory, a number of
surviving Science Lords gathered in a hidden sanctuary. It was there that our
foolishness became obvious, and we regretted ignoring the Chozo's warning. We
realized the folly of following the ways of Science with blind faith -- and the
peril of all Bryyo. The contamination left from the battles was spreading, and
would soon scour the remaining fertile lands, leaving naught but ash. It left
unaided, Bryyo would lose what few safe lands and water remained. Once more,
our great minds turned to a grand task... planetary salvation. As our enemies
searched the lands for us, the last Lords of Science, we created our final
machines and launched them into the heavens.

---------
Salvation
---------

Found: Bryyo - Hidden Court Hall

The great machines of the Science Lords performed flawlessly. They absorbed
the toxins and pollution in the air and soil, preserving the remaining fertile
land of Bryyo. Yet the planet's climate was forever changed, leaving one side
eternally scorched by the sun, the other forever in the icy grasp of darkness.

The launch of the machines revealed the hidden enclave of the Science Lords to
their former enemies. The bright lights in the skies caused by the
decontamination equipment stirred old hatred in the hearts of the Primals.
Fearing a new attack, the Primals sent their warriors forth to hunt their hated
foes. We were now marked for death.

----------
The Hunted
----------

Found: Bryyo - Jungle Generator

The Primals crafted new magics to protect their warriors, and sent them into
the burning wastelands to hunt the Lords of Science hiding there. Though we
tried to avoid conflict, many Science Lords were found and ended by Primal war
bands.

I was but the sole survivor, the last remaining Lord of Science. In order to
protect myself, I adopted the wisdom once shared by the Chozo. I merged the
ways of the new -- Science -- with the ways of the old -- Magic. I built
mighty Mogenars out of stone, and placed them outside the walls of my home,
there to silently protect me from all enemies.

-------
Decline
-------

Found: Bryyo - Colossus Vista

Forgotten in exile, a creature of myth, I, the last Lord of Science, worked
tirelessly to protect myself and this world. I crafted magics and machines to
bring life back to the wastelands. I found a new source of natural energy in
the land and called it Fuel Gel. I vowed to atone for the devastation
inflicted upon Bryyo, caused by both science and war.

Yet, while I toiled, the Primals slipped slowly into barbarism. With no
Science Lords to hunt, they turned on each other, tribe against tribe. Magic
was lost to them, and they became as savage as the predator beasts of the wild.

--------
Prophecy
--------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Refinery Access

As time slowly passed, I grew old: even the combined power of magic and
science couldn't cheat death forever. In order to preserve Bryyo's
environment, I would need a successor. Finding one was a daunting task, for
most of the folk saw me as a monster. Time passed quickly as I searched, and
my efforts appeared to be in vain. Seemingly by chance, I found a young Primal
wandering the wastelands and rescued her. But this was not a chance encounter.
She was a prophetess, tirelessly searching for the last Lord of Science to
speak to about her visions. In her dreams she saw a starborne death coming to
Bryyo, and with her vision came a plea to save her world. Based on her
information, I began work on improving the existing decontamination equipment
to help prepare a defense for Bryyo against the eventual catastrophe.

--------
Our Plea
--------

Found: Bryyo Ice - Imperial Caverns

Sadly, disaster came to use before we could finish our work. An accident
caused our supply of Fuel Gel to explode, sending fire to the sky and exposing
our position. It was not long before a Primal war band saw the great fire, and
rushed to attack. Without a way to power my great Mogenars, I had no way to
defend myself from their assault.

Fleeing would only drive them to pursue us to no end, and they would show no
mercy to either one of us once caught. I had no other choice except to stand
my ground while the prophetess fled to safety. With her I sent my records of
the past, in hopes they would both find sanctuary.

You now read my last words, etched in stone and placed by the prophetess. We
speak to you from beyond the grave, to plead with you... Save our world from
the starborne plague. Lift the veil of hate from the eyes of our people. May
our remaining relics serve you well in this struggle.

Creators
--------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay

I am Elysian, descendent of both the Chozo and the First. I am facing the last
moments of my life and transferring my memory to the data pod.

In a way, our chronicle begins nearly 1500 years ago. That was when our noble
creators, the Chozo, began to build that which would become our home. A place
of exploration and knowledge, floating in the clouds of planet Elysia, a
fitting home for its great Chozo builders. They built many linked, hovering
pods: in time they formed a net in the skies across the globe, instruments
peering out in all directions, studying the cosmos.

We did not exist then: only the Chozo walked these hallowed halls. To the
distant stars they looked, and a great many things they discovered -- including
that which would later spell grim disaster for all.

----
Gift
----

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Arrival Station

Several decades passed for the Chozo here at Elysia. The harsh winds and
storms began to take their toll on the station, and upkeep began to take up
more and more of their precious time. Seeing a need for assistance, they
created us. The first Elysian, built by Chozo hands, stepped out of the
mechanicreche 1,450.82 years ago. Crude by our current standards, the First
was soon given the greatest gift of all by the Chozo. To better assist the
creators, the First was given self-awareness. To all other Elysians, the First
shared the Chozo gift. This event marks year One of the Elysian reckoning.

---------
Discovery
---------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Barracks Lift

The Chozo were watchers, studying the depths of space tirelessly to quench
their thirst for knowledge. From this facility they launched observation
satellites, firing them into the heavens toward distant worlds. These
satellites returned information that allowed them to analyze the various
phenomenon occurring across the cosmos. Through this process they were able to
satisfy their intellectual appetite, one planet at a time.

One day, a Chozo Searcher happened upon a very rare discovery. A
once-thought-lost satellite delivered information on a distant world. It was
incredibly far away, even by Chozo reckoning. Study of the stellar object
revealed that it was, in may ways, a planet -- and yet also sentient. Alive.
This chance event was brief, and the information being collected was lost
before the true identity of the planet was revealed.

-----
Alone
-----

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Landing Site A

In the year 400 of Elysian reckoning, the time for our Chozo creators to leave
had arrived. To us they entrusted the station and its purpose. We were to
stand vigil and watch over the station until the time when others seeking
knowledge and enlightenment arrived. With their departure came one last
request from the Chozo Searcher -- to continue exploring the skies for the
answers to the mysterious planet. We gave her our word and resumed her
tireless search. Day after day we hunted for the answers she desperately
sought, but our efforts yielded nothing. We failed.

-------
Slumber
-------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Ballista Lift

By the year 600, we of Elysia were low on critical supplies and fuel. We
created smaller mechanoids to process fuel from the atmosphere of Elysia, but
they proved unable to produce a sufficient supply. Unable to secure the
necessary resources to sustain ourselves, we entered a state of hibernation to
preserve our remaining stores of energy and parts. While we slumbered, the
data collected by the station's equipment was fed to us in dreams.

During this long period of sleep, we had many dreams. Countless great events
came to us, including a reuninion with our creators, who had come to call a new
planet their home. It was not long before disaster struck. A stellar object
hit planet Tallon IV, bringing with it a catastrophic corruption that sent the
Chozo world into chaos. We watched helplessly as our creators perished, the
few survivors fleeing to an unknown location. Powerless, we slept, and in our
dreams we lamented the deaths of our creators. This was our final vision,
after which we were never able to see our creators again.

----------
Federation
----------

Found: Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Maintenance Shaft TR

Time passed slowly as we suffered through our bad dreams. We endured their
visions until finally, in year 1435, our automated defense systems were
triggered. A number of aliens, well armed and armored, had penetrated our
battle screens and entered Elysia Station. Per protocol, we were revived from
stasis to defend our home. As we mustered for battle, the aliens communicated
with us and declared themselves to be under the banner of peace. A truce was
called, and soon we began negotiations with the Galactic Federation. The
Treaty of Elysia began a new era of prosperity for us.

---------
Agreement
---------

Found: Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - SkyTown Federation Landing Site

The treaty brought us new supplies, fuel, and parts from the Federation. In
return, we allowed them to use Elysia Station as they saw fit. They were glad
to use the station's powerful scientific systems, and gleaned a great deal of
knowledge from our data banks. Unfortunately, the harsh atmosphere of our
world was dangerous for the Federation researchers. They propsed to replace
the humanoids with a single artificial intelligence unit, which they called
Aurora.

------
Aurora
------

Found: Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Broken Lift

Aurora was placed within one of our floating pods and connected into the
station's network. This connection allowed Aurora to control not only the
facility, but us as well. Our link allowed us to reap the benefits of the
Aurora's own connection to the Federation's Aurora network. The units were
capable of communicating with one another regardless of the distance, and vast
amounts of information were passed down to us.

As the years went by we aided the Aurora and our Federation allies in their
research. We studied potential enemy threats and collected data on their
activities. It was, in some small way, a means to atone for our inability to
help our creators years ago. Through our alliance with the Federation we were
able to prevent many disasters, and bring an end to numerous threats in the
cosmos. We are not certain if that was what our creators would have wished to
happen, but it was certainly a peaceful life.

----
Loss
----

Found: Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Concourse Access B

It was approximately five months ago that our systems detected a meteor-like
object collide with a planet in a nearby galaxy. The impact was followed by a
spreading corruption, identical to the one we saw devour our creators' planet.
More so than ever, we were determined to aid the Aurora and discover the source
of these objects. Months passed before we could uncover its origin -- it had
come through a wormhole from an incredibly distant planet. We studied this
link between the tear in space and the location it was connected to. As we
delved deeper it became clear to us that this was the mysterious planet the
Chozo Searcher had been seeking. The living planet was aggressively attacking
other worlds, hurtling parts of itself across the cosmos like missiles. We had
finally discovered the source of these corrupted meteors.

It was about one month ago that we made our revelation, but all attempts at
transmitting the critical data to the Federation were unsuccessful. It
appeared that the Aurora Unit had become disabled. We tried desperately to
restore the Aurora, but it had been corrupted by an unknown virus. Our only
means of communication with the Federation were severed.

------
Phazon
------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Construction Bay

One week after we had lost communication with the Aurora Unit, we witnessed the
living planet strike again. It sent forth several stellar objects, one aimed
directly for us. It streaked through the clouds of Elysia, destroying a large
portion of our home, ultimately striking the distant core below. Soon our
sensors detected the presence of strange energy. Our readings matched with the
Federation's data -- this was the same toxin that corrupted countless other
planets and our creators' world -- the galactic scourge called Phazon.

-------
Invader
-------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Hoverplat Docking Site

We watched as Elysia fell victim to the meteor's corruption, its Phazon
beginning to consume her. High above the noxious surface, we continued to
collect data on the object. It was not long before we met a new enemy. Space
Pirates, hostile alien life-forms and sworn enemies of the Federation, entered
the station and attacked.

The pirate forces struck swiftly, their numbers and weapons dwarfing our own.
After their initial assault, they began construction of a massive energy shield
around the meteor. They referred to the fallen object as a "Seed" and quickly
built the protective barrier. Any resistance they met from us was crushed, and
the massive shield was built without interruption.

Our attention then turned to the pirates themselves. If we could not stop them
through combat, perhaps there was another way. Our studies quickly yielded
unexpected results. All of the Space Pirates were corrupted with Phazon, but
unlike other life-forms, they were actually being sustained by it. This Phazon
kept them alive, and it appeared to control their minds with a will of its own.

------
Defeat
------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Powerworks

The two weeks following the Seed's impact were disastrous. Like the Aurora
Unit, we too were infected with a Phazon-based virus. The spreading corruption
consumed many of us, putting us under Space Pirate control. It was not long
before only a handful of us remained.

During this time there was but a moment that we received aid. Ghor, the Hunter
dispatched by the Federation, arrived here to restore the Aurora Unit. Our
hope quickly vanished as he too was corrupted by Phazon and lost his own will.
He now leads the assault on the remaining survivors, taking more and more of
the station over with each passing day.

There is no hope left for us. Soon, we too will be among the enemy forces.
The last of us now stand before the brink of our history's end, silently
waiting out our final hours.

I am Elysian, descendent of both the Chozo and the First. I am facing the last
moments of my life and trasferring my memory to the data pod.

Our Mission
-----------

Found: Pirate Command - Lift Hub

Phazon was discovered two stellar years ago, and since that moment, Command has
been driven to control it all. Two operations have been established, at
tremendous cost. Both have failed, thanks to the accursed Hunter, Samus Aran.
Her Federation allies now move to secure what little Phazon remains on the
planet Aether. This we cannot allow. We, the crew of the battleship Colossus,
swear to take that Phazon or die trying.

--------
Stowaway
--------

Found: Pirate Command - Command Station

Our attempts to intercept the Federation ship departing Aether were
unsuccessful. With them went a collection of Phazon, the first to fall into
Federation hands. They foolishly left most of the Phazon behind, allowing us
to quickly collect what we could. But in our haste we took more than mere
Phazon. Our scanners have detected the remains of Dark Samus, who has revived
herself within our Phazon storage.

Surely, we are cursed.

The fiendish shrew consumed all of the Phazon, then wiped out a third of the
crew in a matter of minutes. Now she moves at will through the halls of
Colossus, using her witchery to beguile the minds of the crew. We are unable
to call for aid, and only a few of us remain to stand against her. All is
lost.

---------------
First Disciples
---------------

Found: Pirate Research - Processing Access

Our struggles have ended. She has shown us the error of our ways. The way is
now clear. All previous vows of fealty have been forever forsworn: we now
pledge sole allegiance to our liberator, the great one, Dark Samus. We bear a
singular honor, we lucky few, for we are her first disciples. Our burden is a
happy one, for we will pave the way to her glorious victory and cosmic rule.
Let the light of Phazon lead us!

---------------------
The Source Discovered
---------------------

Found: Pirate Research - Airshaft

After our liberation, she left us adrift. We thought this a test of our
loyalty, and so we endured. Some said she abandoned us. They were promptly
shot. Disciples do not doubt their leader.

When she returned, it was on the back of a titanic starborne beast! As we
grovelled in awe, she ordered us to follow the beast through a rift in space, a
wormhole. Some refused to follow, afraid of the unknown. They too were shot.
Disciples must be fearless.

Once through the rift, we saw a singular wonder... Phaaze, the source of all
Phazon in the cosmos. Phaaze, the home of our glorious leader!

-------------
The Leviathan
-------------

Found: Pirate Research - Transit Station 1-B

Our leader provided us with great wisdom on many subjects, including the
improvement of our mighty battleship, Colossus. We followed her teachings, and
turned our vessel into a ship without peer. But more work remained.

Dark Samus required a mighty flagship, one to strike terror in the hearts of
her enemies. The might of Colossus was not enough. She demanded more! Her
solution was unique and most excellent.

We took her great star-beast and fitted it with cybernetic weapon systems.
Crew quarters and command consoles were placed within the beast's skull. In
time, we created a mighty dreadnaught, and called it Leviathan. The great
leader was pleased.

---------------
Taking Valhalla
---------------

Found: Pirate Research - Creche Transit

The vision of our leader is vast indeed. As we prepared for war with the hated
Galactic Federation, she decided she required one of their great machines to
better control her living planet. We then set out to bring an Aurora Unit to
Dark Samus.

Bribes led us to the location of our prize: the battleship Valhalla. Crewed
with green recruits on a training mission, she was ours for the taking. One of
the mightiest ships in the cosmos was no match for the Phazon-powered weapons
of the Colossus. We rendered Valhalla helpless, then sent raiders to claim our
prize. The Aurora was ours!

There was to be no mercy for the Federation dogs. At the command of Dark
Samus, we jettisoned the crew into the frigid depths of space, leaving the
wreck of Valhalla as a warning to the Federation. Let them tremble before our
might!

------------
Purification
------------

Found: Pirate Command - Skyway Access

Our great leader, with the aid of our captured Aurora Unit, has discovered many
of Phaaze's secrets. Dark Samus can now command the living world to send forth
Phazon Seeds! She was eager to test this new power. When we heard the first
world to receive this blessing was our Homeworld, we rejoiced.

The seed was sent into the void, and quickly made its way to our Homeworld.
Our brethren foolishly tried to repel it, but their efforts were in vain. To
think, once we were as pathetic as them!

Now the deed is done, and slowly, our Homeworld becomes like Phaaze. Soon,
there will be two living planets, two Phazon sources for our great leader to
use as she sees fit. Soon, there will be thousands of new disciples for her to
command.

--------
Vanguard
--------

Found: Pirate Mines - Mine Lift

The time has come. Our leader commands. We go to war at last!

Three worlds will be attacked, each important to the Federation. We shall
destroy the spy base at Elysia, the fuel production of Bryyo, and the naval
station at Norion. Each of those wretched worlds will become as Phaaze...
each a foothold into the territory of the hated Federation. From those worlds,
our vanguard will go forth. At long last, our enemies will be humbled, then
enslaved.

Three Phazon Seeds will be sent, and an armada will accompany each of them.
Dark Samus herself will lead the attack on Norion. Victory is ours for the
taking!

----------------
Victory and Loss
----------------

Found: Pirate Mines - Drill Shaft 1

Today is a day of celebration and woe. Our forces have taken planet Bryyo,
leaving the Federation outpost there in cinders. Though we missed their spy
base at Elysia, the planet itself was struck with a Phazon Seed. But Norion...
Norion was a failure... all thanks to the accursed Hunter, Samus Aran.

All is not lost, however. Our great leader defeated Aran and her mongrel
allies in battle. If they aren't dead, they'll soon wish they were. Each of
them bears her mark of corruption. Soon they, like we disciples, will bow to
her will.

-----------
Bryyo Falls
-----------

Found: Pirate Mines - Phazon Mine Entry

Command has received disturbing reports from Bryyo. Contact with our outpost
there has been terminated. A coded brook bliptrans showing Commander Rundas
falling in battle to Samus has arrived. Worst of all, the Bryyonian Seed has
been demolished. The Hunter's might is great, and she is as efficient as ever
when it comes to distrupting our operations.

Our spies within the Federation tell us she travels to Elysia soon. We plan on
having an appropriate welcoming party in place for her when she arrives.
Commander Ghor is a very... accommodating host.

------------------
Disaster at Elysia
------------------

Found: Pirate Command - Command Courtyard

The march of the Hunter continues, much to our dismay. She has smashed our
line at Elysia, taking down Commander Ghor in the process. The accursed
Elysian machines were no match for Aran's guns, and now the Federation has
control of their spy station once again.

It is only a matter of time before they find the location of the Phazon source
and send their fleets to lay siege. Our great leader does not seem to mind
these set backs. If samus comes to our Homeworld, she will find us ready.

------------------
Mistress Gandrayda
------------------

Found: Pirate Command - Transit Tunnel P70

Mistress Gandrayda is the last of our leader's field commanders. We hope that
she will succeed where the others have not. We hope that she will slay the
wretched Hunter!

Gandrayda tests our mettle often. She moves among us in our form, watching us,
looking for signs of weakness. Several unfaithful disciples have been ended...
violently. Those who survive will be stronger, ready for the Hunter that comes
for them from the void. Gandrayda has vowed to present Aran's bloody helmet to
Dark Samus as tribute. We hope she fulfills that vow!

Acid Rain
---------

Found: [Added automatically]

Acid rain is prevalent on the Pirate Homeworld, where the constant pollution
has fully corrupted the environment. The caustic effects of the rain are
incredibly volatile and will severely damage your suit. Exposure to the rain
for any extended period of time will prove fatal. Avoid all contact with the
rain.

---------------------
Black Phazon Crystals
---------------------

Found: Phaaze - Cavern Alpha

The hardened exterior of Black Phazon Crystals is resistant to normal attacks.
These structures will form naturally over time in areas with high amounts of
Phazon. It is commonly mined by Space Pirates for use in producing trooper
armor, but loses its darkened appearance in the process.

------------
Blast Shield
------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 4

Blast Shields are invulnerable to all types of weapon fire. Some are engaged
when hostiles are detected and will only open once the threat has been
eliminated. Others will sometimes remain shut and force you to find an
alternate route.

---------
Bomb Slot
---------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Disposal Chamber

Bomb Slots are powered system-control units. To use, insert the Morph Ball
into the slot and detonate a Bomb. This will transfer energy from the slot to
the device connected to it.

---------------
Bryyo Blue Door
---------------

Found: Bryyo - Cliffside Airdock

Bryyo doors are carved from heavy stone native to the planet. Each door has
been designed with a low-level energy shield. Shooting the shield with any
weapon will open the door.

-----------------
Bryyo Orange Door
-----------------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Gel Refinery Site

Bryyo doors are carved from heavy stone native to the planet. Each door has
been designed with a low-level energy shield. This shield is specially
designed to only be disrupted by high-temp shots.

-----------
Energy Cell
-----------

Found: Bryyo - Hanger Bay

Energy Cells were designed as a portable power source for the Federation.
Their high power-to-energy ratio makes them ideal for powering a wide variety
of equipment.

Throughout the environment you may encounter stations that contain an Energy
Cell. Removing the cell will leave these stations permanently offline. You
will then be able to place the collected Energy Cell into a new station that is
empty.

Your collected and used Energy Cells are recorded in your Logbook.

--------
Fuel Gel
--------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Fiery Airdock

Fuel Gel is used to power most modern starships in the cosmos. It is extremely
rare, and worlds that produce it tend to be quite prosperous. The exception to
this is planet Bryyo, a Federation protectorate -- and the largest supplier of
Fuel Gel. Proceeds from Bryyonian gel sales go directly to the Federation
military forces protecting that sector of space.

The sheer value of Fuel Gel is very attractive, and has led to an uprise in
piracy over the last 20 years. Today, raids on gel transport convoys are
common, especially in frontier regions of space. The Galactic Federation has
increased antipiracy operations, and planets with Fuel Gel resources are
protected by Federation fleets and ground forces.

-----------------------------
Galactic Federation Blue Door
-----------------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5

All Federation doors are designed with a low-level energy shield to prevent
accidental activation. Shooting the energy shield will activate and open the
door. Blue-colored energy shields may be disrupted by weapon fire of any type.

-------------------------
Galactic Federation Crate
-------------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5

Galactic Federation Crates are used to store basic supplies. Because they are
lightly armored, the crates are unable to withstand basic weapon fire. Destroy
them to discover their contents.

------------------------------
Galactic Federation Green Door
------------------------------

Found: G.F.S. Valhalla - Junction A

The green-colored energy shield of this type of Federation door can only be
disrupted by a high-frequency Beam. Shooting the shield with the proper Beam
will activate and open the door.

-------------------------------
Galactic Federation Orange Door
-------------------------------

Found: Bryyo - Hanger Bay

All Federation doors are designed with a low-level energy shield to prevent
accidental activation. Shooting the energy shield will activate and open the
door. Orange-colored energy shields may only be opened with high temperature
shots.

----------
Grab Ledge
----------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Gel Processing Site

Certain ledges are composed of unique magnetic alloys that react to your suit.
By jumping toward and grabbing on to them, a surge of energy will course
through your suit and allow you to pull yourself up.

Ledges that shimmer green are able to be grabbed on to.

-------------------
Grapple Swing Point

Found: Bryyo - Hillside Vista

To use the Grapple Swing, lock on to the Grapple Swing Point with Z. Release Z
to let go. You can fire your weapons while attached to a Grapple Swing Point.

---------
Half-pipe
---------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Steambot Barracks

Half-pipes are U-shaped channels with incredibly smooth surfaces that Samus can
boost along. Charge the Boost while descending in a half-pipe and then release
the Boost as you ascend the opposite side. This will allow you access to areas
that are too high to reach otherwise.

-------------------------------
Heavy Galactic Federation Crate
-------------------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5

Heavy Galactic Federation Crates are often used to store ammunition and energy
supplies. These units are made of very durable metals. Only heavy weapons
and explosives can destroy them.

---------------------
Heavy Phazon Canister
---------------------

Found: Pirate Command - Landing Site Bravo

Heavy Phazon canisters are used by Space Pirates to transport large amounts of
Phazon. Unlike the smaller versions, these are made and reinforced with
durable metals. Only a strong impact will destroy them.

--------------------------
Heavy SkyTown Storage Unit
--------------------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay

Heavy SkyTown Storage Units are made of metals manufactured exclusively on
SkyTown. These metals are very durable and can only be damaged by heavy weapon
fire.

--------------------
Hunter-Class Gunship
--------------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5

Based on the previous version, the new Hunter-class gunship is a fusion of
Federation and Chozo technology. Designed by Samus Aran, this one-of-a-kind
vessel was custom built at the Federation shipyard of Aliehs III. It is
equipped with a powerful Chozo biotech computer that can interface with Aran
via a Command Visor unit. The ship contains a mobile energy-recharge system,
microfactories designed to produce ammunition, and an advanced medical bay.

-----------
Kashh Plant
-----------

Found: Bryyo - Cliffside Airdock

The Reptilicus use Kashh plants as a means to store supplies. Shooting them
with any weapon will reveal their contents.

------------------
Kinetic Orb Cannon
------------------

Found: SkyTown, Elysia - Transit Hub

The Kinetic Orb Cannon's original purpose is unclear, but they are capable of
firing spherical objects at high speeds to a set target. Entering a cannon
while in Morph Ball will allow you to reach new areas and traverse great
distances quickly.

The Kinetic Orb Cannon appears in various locations in SkyTown. However, most
units have shut down and require a kinetic charge to reactivate.

--------------
Landing Beacon
--------------

Found: G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5

Landing Beacons will appear only in locations where your ship can land.
Automated sensors will detect whether hostiles or obstructions are nearby, and
the beacons will retract until the area is free of all hazards. When the
beacons are extended and blinking, you may use the Command Visor to summon your
ship.

------------------
Large Bryyo Coffer
------------------

Found: Bryyo - Gateway Hall

Large Bryyo Coffers were originally designed to store items and supplies in
locations where Kashh plants wouldn't survive. Their hardened plating makes
them resistant to all but the heaviest of weapon fire.

------------------------
Large Space Pirate Crate
------------------------

Found: Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo

Large Space Pirate Crates are made of durable materials. Only heavy weapon
fire will damage them. Destroy them to discover their contents.

--------------
Leviathan Door
--------------

Found: Bryyo Seed - Landing Site Delta

Leviathan doors function in the same way normal doors do. Shooting the energy
shield will cause the bone plates to retract and allow you to walk through.

------------------
Mature Kashh Plant
------------------

Found: Bryyo - Cliffside Airdock

Mature Kashh plants are used for storage by Bryyo natives. Unlike the younger
versions, these have developed a thick bark that is only vulnerable to heavy
weapon fire.

--------------------
Mounted Blast Shield
--------------------

Found: Norion - Hub Access

Mounted Blast Shields are unique in that they often have a primary locking
system. These systems commonly come in the form of multiple release locks that
must be hit in a sequential order. Once this locking system is disengaged the
shield can be removed. Weapon fire is insufficent to damage the shield, but it
can easily be torn off with a strong pull.

-----------------------
Multi-Lock Blast Shield
-----------------------

Found: Norion - Cargo Dock B

This type of Blast Shield is characterized by its multiple locking mechanisms.
A simultaneous blast to all the targets is required to deactivate the locks and
remove the shield.

-----------
Phaaze Door
-----------

Found: Phaaze - Landing Site

Phaaze doors appear to be organic maws contained within a thin layer of Phazon
energy. Disrupting the energy with Phazon-based attacks will cause the maw to
open and allow you to pass through.

-------------
Phazon Fungus
-------------

Found: Bryyo - South Jungle Hall

The soft bodies of Phazon Fungus are easily damaged by weapon fire. These
organisms are commonly found in areas that are highly concentrated with Phazon.
The growths can be highly destructive and will feed on any organic matter. As
the fungus grows, it corrupts the surrounding area further and will continue to
spread out.

-------------
Planet Aether
-------------

Found: Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Chozo Observatory

Satellite information shows that Aether is slowly recovering from a cataclysmic
event. A stellar object struck the planet with an incredible force, burning
Aether's fertile plains and destroying the lush forests covering her surface.
The planet's own energy supply, once torn in two by the impact, is now stable.
The inhabitants of the word, the starborne Luminoth, have begun the long task
of mending Aether back to its former self.

----------------
Planet Tallon IV
----------------

Found: Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Chozo Observatory

Tallon IV appears to be a utopia for biological live, containing an oxygen-rich
and hospitable atmosphere. The planet is home to countless species of flora
and fauna. Satellite scans detect numerous structures on the planet's surface,
with closer examination revealing many of these structures to be of Chozo
origin. Tallon IV's scar, the result of a celestial body impacting the
planet's surface decades ago, is still visible. Satellite scans are unable to
determine the extent of the original damage, but the planet appears to have
recovered from any negative effects of the object's impact.
