    Version 1.22 | 29/12/06
    -----------------------
    Fixed an error (thanks to Rainierman). This error should only affect
    NTSC gamers so those I originally aimed this guide at shouldn't have noticed
    any problems. Side note: I've been planning to revamp my old guides as my new
    guides (or rather, my *planned* future guides >_>) use a different format that
    I like better. If any of you read this in 2008 and it still hasn't been
    updated, feel free to email and berate me. >_<
    
    -----------------------
    Version 1.21 | 05/01/05
    -----------------------
    I've now been informed that the Log Book for the Player's Choice version of
    Metroid Prime is NOT the same as the PAL version (aside from the fixed Ice
    Shriekbat glitch). I can't confirm either side of this but I'm just going to
    assume it isn't the same and advertise this as PAL only. But either way, you US
    players can still use this guide as much of the information is identical. If
    any of you can confirm whether the Player's Choice version is the same or not
    as the PAL version Log Book wise I'd appreciate it.
    
    -----------------------
    Version 1.20 | 27/12/04
    -----------------------
    First, the bad news. I decided to reformat my computer and (cleverly) forgot to
    back-up all my FAQ information and notes including a pile of corrections I
    hadn't gotten around to fixing up yet. If any of you had emailed in a
    correction then I'd appreciate it if you resent it.
    
    In this version, I've added in ID numbers for easy jumping to particular
    sections and altered a few bits and bobs of information. Also, my guide is
    applicable for the Player's Choice version of the game. It uses the Log Book
    that is in the PAL version (as well as all the other things like
    non-disappearing Ice Shriekbats and random piles of rubble in front of doors to
    make Sequence Breaking harder). So if you have the Player's Choice version of
    Metroid Prime this is the guide to use.

    Version 1.10
    ------------
    Posted up locations to the Pirate Data and Chozo Lore entries and added to the
    credits.
    
    ------------
    Version 1.00
    ------------
    The first basically complete version of this guide. Includes a list of all Log
    Book entries, each individual entry, the locations the for Creature and
    Research entries, a listed of tgose annoying limited-tim scans and some general
    information scanning. Took a lot of work and I hope it's helping people. :)

    Hello, hello. I'm BlitzBoy and this is my first FAQ. I noticed that this site
    (GameFAQs) lacks a bit on PAL content for Metroid Prime, particularly when it
    comes to the Log Book. As the PAL Log Book is different from NTSC Log Book in
    content and order I'd thought I'd write one up for us PAL gamers. So here it
    is! If you are looking for a particular entry using the "Find" command (CTRL-F)
    is quite helpful. I've also included little ID numbers so you can easy jump to
    each section. As this is my first FAQ I'd appreciate any feedback as well as
    any corrections. You can find my email at the top of this FAQ.
    
    NOTE: Although this guide is written for the PAL version of Metroid Prime, much
    of the information is identical to the US version of the game so you guys can
    use the guide to some degree, as well.

    Here is a more indepth guide for the Log Book category "Pirate Data" which
    includes descriptions. Most of these are found in the laboratories in
    Phendrana Drifts and in the Phazon Mines. A few are scattered elsewhere. "Fall
    of Zebes" is located in the Space Frigate at the start of the game.

    Zebes has fallen. All ground personnel are presumed dead, either killed by the
    Hunter clad in metal or in the subsequent destruction of the underground
    facilities. Our research frigates Orpheon, Siriacus and Vol Paragon where in
    orbit at zero hour and managed to retreat. Frigate Orpheon is now docked at
    Vortex Outpost. Orpheon's cargo appears to have a 100% survival rate; Metroids
    are healthy but on restricted feeding schedules due to uncertain supply status.
    We are ready to begin research on the Metroids and other promising life-forms.
    Security status remains at Code Blue; no signs of pursuit from the Hunter.

    The only Pirate Data that is not found on Tallon IV and cannot be obtained if
    missed. This Data talks of the "fall" of Zebes. They talk of their ground
    troops being killed by Samus and their underground facilities being destroyed.
    This suggests Metroid Prime comes before Super Metroid as Zebes was destroyed
    in Super Metroid yet it still seems to be in one piece here.

    Security Command issued an all-points alert after the fall of Zebes. The alert
    concerns bioform Samus Aran, also known as the Hunter. Subject is a female
    hominid, and is heavily armed and extremely dangerous. Subject uses a powered
    armoursuit of unknown design in battle, along with a number of potent Beam and
    concussive weapons. All combat units are instructed to terminate Aran on sight,
    preferably in a fashion that will allow salvage of her powered armoursuit and
    weapons. A considerable bounty will go to the unit who delivers Aran to
    Command. Dead or alive, it matters not.

    Looks like the Pirates were pretty cheesed off about the incident that happened
    in the original Metroid. They obviously managed to learn a great deal about the
    Hunter as they know her name is Samus and she's female. A lot of gamers don't
    even know that.

    Scans of the Spiral Sector detected a massive energy pike emanating from a
    Wanderer-class planet identified as Tallon IV. Scout reconnaissance was
    immediately dispatched to the center of the spike, a land mass at the heading
    mark 40.08.08, returning with planetary samples and atmospheric imaging.
    Analysis shows the energy source to be and unstable radioactive material of
    enormous potential. We are unable to form an accurate risk-assessment at this
    time, but we are unlikely to find an energy source this powerful again.
    Analysis will continue but currently Tallon IV appears to be a viable secondary
    headquarters.

    Field team reports are in on an aged structure of alien design built on the
    surface of Tallon IV. Studies show this structure projects a containment field.
    This field bars access to a prime source of energy within a deep crater.
    Science Team believes the field is powered by a number of strange Chozo
    artifacts. Studies for possible resting places for these talisman have begun.
    As the field could hinder future energy production operations on Tallon IV, we
    must dismantle it as soon as possible. If this means the destruction of the
    Chozo Artifacts, it will be done.

    We have codified the newfound energy source as Phazon, a V-index mutagen of
    which we have very little reliable data. Indications point to a meteor of
    unknown origins impacting an indeterminable time ago, expelling Phazon into the
    environment. This material appears so possess lifelike characteristics, mutating
    organic life-forms strong enough to withstand its poison. There mutations
    appear promising, with abrupt evolutionary leaps appearing in single-generation
    reproduction. Plans to establish a Science Team on Tallon IV are being
    finalized.

    Phazon mining is under way. Several garrisons have been established and
    terraforming of the Chozo Ruins is under way. Security systems are operations,
    and Science Team continues to make progress in their biotech research. The
    Phendrana Drifts have proven to be an optimal location of Research
    Headquarters, and soon it will be joined by a fully operation Combat base and
    starport. If
    Command's predictions are half true, we shall rise dominant of this sector
    within a deca-cycle. Truly, these are glorious times.

    Initial transfer of Metroids to Tallon IV research facilities has been
    completed. Three were terminated in an incident at the landing site, but the
    others were pacified and transported safely. Initial Phazon infusion testing is
    under way. We are eager to observe the effects of Phazon on Metroids,
    especially their ability to absorb and process the energy give off by Phazon
    sources. Early research suggest a considerable growth in power and size.
    Whether the creatures will stay stable thereafter remains to be seen.

    Our initial tests exposing Tallon IV's indigenous parasites to Phazon appears
    to be successful. Increases in size, strength and aggressiveness are common in
    all test subjects, as well as unforeseen evolutions like addition poison sacs
    within the abdomen and the appearance of a second ring on mandible in several
    subjects. These creatures were chosen because of their resilience, and it
    appears possible that, given enough exposure to Phazon, they many be able to
    survive on any planet we transport them to. Our methods will have to be
    refined; we currently have 100% extinction rate after the forth infusion
    period, and most survivors of the third infusion stage are so violent and
    uncontrollable that they have to be euthanized. Even still, we remain hopeful
    that further experimentation will result in success.

    Mining operations have begun near the crater where Phazon appears to be more
    concentrated. Daily Phazon yields have increased 44%, and out mining system
    becomes more streamedlined as personnel and equipment flows increase. Several
    incidents of Phazon induced madness have been reported, prompting augmented
    life-support regulations in the deeper chambers. Symptoms include loss of
    equilibrium, erratic respiration, muscle spasms, and in the most extreme
    cases, hallucinations. A timeline reassessment for the refinery operation is
    recommended, as the material proves more unstable than initial analysis
    indicated.

    Research outpost Glacier One in Phendrana Drifts region of Tallon IV's
    mountains is operating at 85% capacity. Sub-zero temperatures have made the
    Metroids sluggish and easy to control, even those well into Phazon infusion
    cycles. Cold containment status are sufficient for the juveniles, but some of
    the larger Metroids have been moved to quarantine caves for safety purposes.
    Security doors remain an issue, as malfunctions due to ice occur everyday.
    Large predators in the waster are also a concern, as they continue to kill
    personnel and breach secure areas. Unfortunately, it has become clear that
    our containment teams cannot neutralize all of them without a vast increase of
    munitions and soldiers.

    Most terraforming and retrofitting of security checkpoints on Tallon IV is
    complete, but we continue to research the alarming epidemic of breaches by
    local creatures. Door records show no unauthorized entries, so we must presume
    the creatures are either slipping in undetected during daily personnel moves
    or else finding their way through subterranean tunnels. We have found many
    small breaches of the latter sort and plug them whenever we can, but it is
    unlikely that we will ever achieve full extermination within our current

    The reconstruction of geoform 187, code-named Ridley, was recently completed.
    After his defeat on Zebes, Command ordered a number of metagenenic improvements
    for him. Though aggressive, we were able to implement these changes in a cycle.
    The metamorphosis was painful, but quite successful in the end. Early tests
    indicate a drastic increase in strength, mobility, and offensive capability.
    Cybernetic modules and armour plating have been added as well. We believe our
    creature, now called Meta Ridley, will become the mainstay of our security
    force, a job he will certainly relish.

    Confidence is high regarding Phazon applications. We know enough about Phazon
    now to begin combining it with Space Pirate DNA. The code name for this venture
    will be 'Project Helix'. Preliminary studies indicate that Phazon infusion
    could produce radical Pirate genomes. Benevolent mutation levels are high in
    current test subjects. Phazon madness is a concern, but refinements in the
    infusion process should reduce or neutralize the the odds of mental
    degeneration.

    Initial Project Helix experiments with Space Pirate embryos were disastrous.
    The Phazon-infusion process degenerated brain tissue even as it augmented
    muscle mass. None of what termed Elite Pirates lived to maturity; the few that
    survived their infanthood suffered severe psychotic breakdowns as juveniles,
    killing anything within their zone of perception. Research team Sclera made a
    recent breakthrough, in which parasite studies with a Phazon strain code-named
    Vertigo were highly successful. Since then we have successful fused Vertigo
    Phazon with Space Pirate DNZ with great success. The latest batch of Elite
    Pirates have reached maturity successfully and are ready for field testing and
    training.

    Investigations into a possible ingress point for the impact crater continue to
    meet with failure. The shield of strange energy that protects it is
    impermeable, and all attempts to tunnel past it have proved fruitless. Our
    continued futility in this matter is made all the more significant in light of
    recent life form readings we've discovered emanating from deep within the
    crater. Analysis of the readings indicates that a massive creature is gestating
    in there, absorbing enormous amounts or Phazon from the Phazon core at the
    heart of the impact crater. This discovery makes accessing the crater doubtly
    important - not only will it open the door to the vast deposits of Phazon
    within, but it will also lead us to this creature, whatever it may be.

    Elite Pirate Upsilon's propensity for Phazon has enabled out research team to
    infuse it far beyond out safetly restrictions, and the results have been
    extremely encouraging. Its constant Phazon diet has increased it's mass
    exponentially, but it has retained all mental faculties and shows dexterity
    with all Elite weaponry, including Plasma incendiary launchers and the
    chameleon manta issued for cloaking purposes. Elite Pirate Upsilon exhibits
    miraculous healing abilities; when injured, it seeks out Phazon deposits and
    coats itself in the substance, which instantly mends the creature's wounds. The

    As we continue to observe the development of Project Helix's Elite Pirates, it
    becomes increasing obvious that these warriors will usher in a new era of Space
    Pirate dominance. They are incredibly resistant to damage, and their ability to
    transport and wield so many weapons at once makes them the ideal mainstays if
    our ground forces. Though they are not as quick as typical Pirates, it makes
    little difference. With a platoon of Elite Pirates in the vanguard of an army
    of normal and Flying Pirates, we will have near-indestructable backbone that
    should turn the tide in any engagement.

    Metroid dissection continues to produce more questions than answers. Our
    research teams have isolated the energy conduits that run from the invasive
    twin mandibles to the energy core in the creature's quadripartite nucleus, but
    the manner in which the Metroid actually extracts  the life force from its pray

    fluids, and yet the Metroid extracts energy; identifying this energy is our
    central problem. It takes no physical form, and yet without it, the victim
    dies. We will continue to research this matter, as the isolation of this

    the artifacts corresponds to one of the statues on the temple platform, and
    that each one acts as a small key to a huge lock. Judging by the number of

    Studies of Metroid biology continue, though with limited progress. It seems
    likely that we will be much successful using the Metroids for our means rather
    than trying to reproduce their powers. If they could be adequately tamed, we
    would have no need of proper understanding of their metabolism. A small force
    of diciplined Metroids could wipe out entire armies, and once we find a way to
    sheild them from cold-containment weapons, they will be invincible.
    Furthermore, if we could then harvest the energy they'd consumed, we would have
    a near limitless source of power at our disposal.

    The history of the Chozo stretches into ancient times, so far into the fog of
    the past that we know of where out ancestors came from. One thing is clear,
    however: the Chozo who colonized Tallon IV made a conscious choice to eschew a
    civilization of advanced technology. They chose to live in harmony with nature,
    guided by the providence of the universe. As this city grows, we plan to honor
    them with written tributes, carvings etched in stone to remind us always of
    their legacy.

    Many long years have past since we Chozo first took root in this land. The
    passage of time has always been a source of facination to us; it is the belief
    of many Chozo sages that the truths of the universe lite within the tumbling
    currents of time's flow. Even as we search for answers there, however, we find
    illumination in others, unexpected places. We know not how the ability has come
    to us, but recently, many Chozo have begun to sense things beyond the realm of
    ordinary perception. Strange sights and inexplicable sensations flood out
    minds, filling us with visions of the past and future. We take this growing
    ability to be a sign or our burgeoning harmonization with the infinite;
    perhaps, finally, the universe's secrets are becoming known to us.

    nature. It is our hope that such a state will bring with it great wisdom and a
    greater understanding of the nature of the universe.

    Many Chozo are gifted with the distant sight, and even more begin to learn it
    as out harmonization with the universe becomes more and more complete. We peer
    forwards, seeing prophecy in the ripples of the water, hearing rumours of
    coming days on the breath of the wind. Though we celebrate the distant sight,
    many of these visions are dark - the worse of the prophecies, and the most
    common, tells of the coming of the Worm. Born from parasites, nurtured in a
    poisoned womb, the Worm grows, devouring from withinm until the world begins to
    rot. Not all prophecies come to pass, of course, but we cannot help but fear
    this dark portent.

    --            --
    Unforeseen by sages, a meteor came as if from nowhere, casting a dark shadow of
    debris over the land with the violence of its impact. Its destructive force
    spent, the fallen star burnt itself out rapidly, and the incident should have
    faded into memory... but the meteor brought with it destruction. A Great Poison
    burst forth into the land, a strange energy that clawed at natural life with a
    ferocity that seemed almost sentient. Bound by out ignorance of this
    phenomenon, we Chozo could only watch in horror as this dark force slowly began
    to spread across the surface of Tallon IV.

    --            --
    The cries of this duing land echo in our ears as we Chozo watch the Great
    Poison seep ever further into the living pulse of the planet. The dark energy
    sinks into the trees and waters, devouring all life. Peaceful beasts die by the
    thousands - some creatures survive, but their forms grow as twisted and evil as
    the force that fell from the sky. Many of these mutated monstrosities remain
    small enough to do little harm, but others grow enourmous and threaten out very
    existance. One such beast defiles our sacred fountain, disgorging poison from
    its foul form, replacing pure, flowing water with casades of creeping death.
    Even in the face of such horror, we Chozo do not turn in fear. We are all that
    stands in the way of this Great Poison, and is our duty to contain it.

    The future is a vague thing, ever-changing and always in doubt. Even if we
    Chozo could gain the ability to foresee the future, it would be a hollow gift,
    for we could never hope to control what is yet to occur. The fountain is an
    example of this - the day many come when its water dries up, and there is
    nothing we could do to stop such a tragedy. But we do know this: unlike the
    uncertain flow of water, the power of out will is strong and enduring. The will
    of the Chozo will never dry up.

    As the Great Poison reaches even further into the planet, we Chozo begin to
    feel the gnawings of despair - before it is too late, we must now make our last
    stand. We have begun to make a temple to contain this darkness; at its heart we
    will place a Cipher, a mystical lock powered by twelve Artifacts and filled
    with as much power as we Chozo can harness. We wonder, though - even when we
    are done, will it be too late? And will the power of the temple, and the Cipher
    itself, prove strong enough to hold back the poisonous tide that even now
    swells within the ground, threatening all life.

    What is this otherworldly pestilence? that infests the lan, seeking out life
    for its blind need for corruption? And where did the meteor that brought it
    originate? Was it crafted by alien hands or is it a roving chunk of planet that
    suffered a violent end? Our minds quail in horror at the thought that long ago,
    in some cornor of the universe as yet unseen by our eyes, an entire planet was
    perhaps coated in this Great Poison. Whatever cataclysm may have ruptured that
    doomed place must have been mighty, indeed... and if other meteors from it
    spread through space, bearing this evil to the far corners of the universe...
    We hold fast to the hope that this is not so, that the only surviving remnants
    of this evil are here, on Tallon IV. Then, at least, there is hope for its
    eradication.

    So many creatures suffer beneath the blight upon the land, and we Chozo are no
    exception. But for all of our pain, we can at least believe in the promise of
    the future; unlike the apparitions that have begun to appear, entities feel
    neither hope nor solace. We call these doomed souls The Turned - taking ghostly
    Chozo forms, they know no reason beyond the instinctive urge to protect our
    lands. They will likely exist in limbo forever. We have come to believe that a
    time may never come when we can once again open the door and banish the
    darkness we've contained. Even so, our vigilance will forever remain. We
    believe that on some far-off day, a savior will come and continue what we have
    begun. For that savior, we will leave our ancient weapons and armour - the soul
    who can gather them will be the Entrusted One, the only one that can reverse
    the evil that grows here.

    The containment of the Great Poison... This task has fallen to the Chozo, and
    we will not flee from our duty, even as we suffer with the land and its
    creatures. We will pour our will into the Twelve - the Artifacts that, when
    brought together, form the lock that hols this great evil at bay in the depths
    of the planet. This lock must stand up to all who might come to assault it. To
    perserve the power of the seal, and to protect it from those who would meddle
    for their own designs, we will spread the Artifacts across the land, hiding
    them from prying eyes. The lock must never open until when this disaster can
    finally be put right.

    Throughout our living nightmare, as we battle with this unyielding darkness, we
    Chozo see a light. This light glows with promise, chasing the shadows cast by
    the Great Poison and purifying that which has grown toxic. It is strange,
    though - at times it looks to our eyes as if the light coalesces into the
    figure of a woman. Burning brightly, the luminecence decends from space then
    retreats back into infinite blackness from whence it came. When this prophercy
    comes to pass, when the light recedes, the Chozo's long vigilance of
    containment will finally come to an end.

    None know if our temple, the Cradle, will prove powerful enough to contain this
    evil forever. For now, it wraps around that abomination, cutting it off from
    the world above. But how can we Chozo hope for the Cradle to remain intact when
    that which it guards writhes in the darkness growing always stronger? The fate
    of this world rests with the gathering of Artifacts we call the Cipher, but
    but even it is not all-powerful. It is strong, yes; an enchanted whole made of
    twelve links. Still, it is finite in its reach, and we who guard it are slowly
    succumbing. Will the Entrusted One arrive before you vigilance crumbles away?
    That time rapidly approaches...

    To the Entrusted One: if you read these words, then out hope has not been in
    vain. Your path is fraught with danger - monstrosities beyond description lurk
    in the shadows, starving, hunting for prey, searching for ways to quench the
    poisonous urges that bloom in their brains. Some of these are shrewd, but they
    are blinded by their evil designs: believing in black promise of the Great
    Poison, they seeek to harness it for their own ends. It is these last that are
    the greatest danger, perhaps an ever greater one than the Great Poison itself.
    When you rid rid the universe of these creatures, you will be the true

    Things bound to earthly shapes are temperal and frail: existing in a single

    all things obey this law - shapeless, they wait beyond the realm of perception,
    emerging only when one arrives who can feel their presence. Such is the will
    of the Chozo. Our will to defeat the evil seeping into the planet remains
    forever, desiring only to see the darkness meet its end. Mindless but strong,
    our will shall never sleep until the Entrusted One arrives to cleanse this

    apparitions flit in the shadows. Within this strange world, one image stands
    out in the mist, flickering in through the landscape, wraithlike. It is a
    human, a lone figure shining in the toxic shadows. We Chozo do not know what it
    is, but our hearts swell with hope at the promise of th glowing light. We will
    place our faith in our shrine; we will be there when the light shines upon our

    Anchors itself to walls and other surfaces. Avoid contact with spikes.
    
    A basic nerve center located directly above the Zoomer's mandibles detect
    nutrients. Sharp spines protect it from casual predators, but a lack of a
    reinforced carapace makes the Zoomer vulnerable to any indirect attacks.

    Three mouth-nodules protrude from the stalk beneath the flower, each with a
    rudimentary brain cluster and the ability to spew toxic fumes at anything
    within a five-meter radius. The spores ejected from the stigma at the center of
    the flower are sufficient to kill this creature if they explode in its
    vicinity.

    Scarabs think nothing for themselves for the safety of their swarm. When a
    hostile life-form is sighted, they block its progress by embedding themselves
    in floors and walls. Embedded Scarabs violently self-destruct when threatened.

    Well-armored burrowing insect. Vulnerable only in the rear abdomen.
    
    Creature's thick cranial plating can repel frontal attacks. This gives it an
    advantage in combat, allowing it to make ramming attacks. Only surfacing when
    it detects vibrations above, it then maneuvers itself so as to always face its

    Airborne insect equipped with a venomous stinger capable of shearing steel.
    
    The War Wasp rarely strays far from its hive unless it is pursuing an immediate
    threat. It attacks with no regard for its own survival, dive-bombing its enemy
    with stinger extended. Fast-working toxins from the stinger can incapacitate

    The War Wasps are the only species on Tallon IV to evolve a true hive mind.
    Nesting in damp, dark places, Ram War Wasps emerge in small groups when
    threatened and circle their enemy at high speeds, disorienting it. Striking
    from all sides as a single intelligence, they can fell huge organisms.

    Scavenger with optical camouflaging that renders it invisible to the naked eye.
    
    Flickerbats are deceptive creatures. The only way to track them reliably is
    with x-ray imaging. They fly ceaselessly, hunting on insects and other small
    insects that float on the air currents. Flickerbats tend to fly in cyclical
    hunting patterns, using primitive sonar to navigate.

    Glacial predator. Ice shell protects vulnerable dorsal area.
    
    Young Sheegoths grow a resilient shell of ice on their backs which serves to
    protect a layer of vulnerable flesh. With this being their only weak point,
    Baby Sheegoths will turn quickly in order to not allow predators the
    opportunity to strike at their backs. Powerful hunters, they fire bursts of
    ultracold gas at potential prey, then feast on their frozen victim.

    Supreme predator of the Phendrana Drifts.
    
    Sheegoths are invulnerable to most Beam weapons. The crystals on their back
    absorb energy, which they can fire at prey. Sheegoths have poor stamina. They
    hyperventilate after using their breath attack, making their mouth area
    vulnerable. The soft underbelly of a Sheegoth is susceptible to concussive
    blasts. In battle, they expel blasts of frigid gas.

    Rock hard boss that people find quite difficult to defeat in Hard difficulty.
    Using some clever Sequence Breaking techniques can get you the Plasma Beam to
    assist in this battle if you really need it.

    71. Omega Pirate
    ----------------
    --            --
    *Log Book Entry*
    --            --
    Morphology: Omega Pirate
    Most powerful of the Elite Pirate forces.
    
    Omega Pirate can become invisible to normal sight. It is vulnerable when
    cloaked, as all energy is drawn from defense systems. By exposing itself to
    Phazon, it can regenerate damaged tissue and organs. Considered the pinnacle of
    the Elite Pirate program, this enemy should be handled with extreme caution and
    maximum firepower.

    *Author's Note*
    --           --
    Why people find this boss so difficult I'll never know... If you are really
    having trouble, try using Power Bombs as us PAL gamers can use them to take
    down its armour.

    72. Meta Ridley
    ---------------
    --            --
    *Log Book Entry*
    --            --
    Morphology: Meta Ridley
    Genetically enhanced Ridley metaform.
    
    Reborn and evolved through Pirate technology, Meta Ridley is a fearsome
    enforcer. Its armored hide is extremely resilient, save for the chest, which
    has thinner plating. The Pirates have fused a number of potent weapons to the
    creature, including a Multi-Missile system, a Kinetic Breath Weapon, a Meson
    Bomb Launcher, and an Ultrathermal Flamestrike Projector. Meta Ridley is also a
    formidable melee combatant, making any sort of engagement a risky proposition.

    You have to like Ridley. A nice challenge plus it looks cool. :) Refer to a
    Boss Guide for advice on how to defeat this Metroid tradition.

    73. Metroid Prime
    -----------------
    --            --
    *Log Book Entry*
    --            --
    Morphology: Metroid Prime
    Highly evolved, Phazon-producing life form.
    
    The aberration known as Metroid Prime is the source of Phazon, making it
    immensely powerful. A genetic flaw makes it susceptible to certain weapoms for
    brief periods. Only its head is truly vulnerable: other attacks are a nuisance.
    Offensively, Metroid Prime has a number of natural and mechanical weapons at
    its desposal. These include Ultrafrigid Breath, Multi-Missiles, Snare Beams,
    and Partical Wave Projectors. Its massive strength and barbed carapace make it
    lethal in melee combat. Recommend maximum firepower when engaging this enemy.

    Impact Crater: Subchamber One
    
    --           --
    *Author's Note*
    --           --
    The first form of the final boss, Metroid Prime. In the PAL version of Metroid
    Prime, it is unclear how it obtained its mechanical weaponry but I suppose it
    can be more easily explained than the plot-hole the NTSC version had, with the
    capture of Metroid Prime (I won't go into that here). Refer to a Boss Guide for
    details on how to defeat the behemoth.

    74. Metroid Prime
    -----------------
    --            --
    *Log Book Entry*
    --            --
    Morphology: Metroid Prime
    The core essence of Metroid Prime.
    
    Scan indicates that the Phazon energy form of Metroid Prime is invulnerable to
    all weapons; only attacks from a Phazon-fuzed Arm Cannon will damage it. It
    generates pools of Phazon when it attacks; use these to fuel you Suit's Phazon
    weapon system. The entity can also spawn Metroids to assist it in battle,
    renedering it invisible when it does so.

    *Author's Note*
    --           --
    The second and last form of the final boss, Metroid Prime. Its pretty cool
    cool looking in my opinion. Again, refer to a Boss Guide for greater details on
    how to defeat this final obstacle. Good luck!

    Acquiring every Log Book entry is not quite as easy as it seems. There are a
    couple of entries that can only be gotten and certain times and if you miss
    them you'll have to start over. In this section, I've sorted the entries in
    two ways: Log Book order, the order they appear in the Log Book, and
    Chronological order, the order they appear in the game.

            start of the game. Once the Frigate is destroyed, it is no longer
            possible to obtain the entry.

           -Are located in the Space Frigate at the start of the game. Once the
            Frigate is destroyed, it is no longer possible to obtain this entry.
            There are many scattered around the Frigate and scanning one should be
            no problem.
    
    12. Ram War Wasp
           -Are located in the Hive Totem in the Chozo Ruins. These appear during
            the battle with the Hive Mecha. Once the Hive Mecha is defeated, it is
            no longer possible to obtain this entry. Simply scan one as they circle
            around you or when they stop.
    
    13. Barbed War Wasp
           -Are located in the Burn Dome in the Chozo Ruins. These appear during
            the battle with the Incinerator Drone. Once the Incinerator Drone is
            defeated, it is no longer possible to obtain this entry. Simply scan
            one when one emerges from the hive.
    
    26. Hive Mecha
           -Is located in the Hive Totem in the Chozo Ruins. Once you defeat it, it
            is no longer possible to obtain this entry.
    
    27. Incinerator Drone
           -Is located in the Burn Dome in the Chozo Ruins. Once you defeat it, it
            is no longer possible to obtain this entry.
    
    36. Ice Parasite
           -Are located in the Chozo Ice Temple in Phendrana Drifts. These are
            replaced by Pulse Bombus once you acquire the Wave Beam so don't forget
            to scan them.
    
    37. Ice Shriekbat *(NTSC NON-PLAYER'S CHOICE VERSION ONLY)*
           -Yeah I know, my guide is a PAL version only but I get so many emails
            about this so I've decided to include it. Found in the Ice Ruins (west)
            in Phendrana Drifts. These disappear when you acquire the Thermal
            Visor (which is kinda ironic if you think about it). If you're using
            the non-Player's Choice NTSC version of Metroid Prime, make sure you
            scan these guys when you see them so you don't feel the need to send me
            hate-filled emails. >_>
    
    40. Ice Burrower
           -Are located in the Plaza Walkway and Research Core Access in Phendrana
            Drifts. These are replaced by Sentry Drones once you obtain the Thermal
            Goggles, I believe. Remember to scan them and don't confuse them with
            the normal Burrowers.
    
    53. Aqua Drone
           -Are located in the Biohazard Containment in the Crashed Frigate in the
            Tallon Overworld. I'm not 100% on this but apparent they are replaced
            by Aqua Reapers once you leave then come back. Best to scan them as
            soon as you encounter them just to be safe.
    
    61. Elite Pirate
           -Are located throughout the Phazon Mines. Even though there are several
            of them, they are still in limited number so scan the first one to get
            it out of the way. Once all Elite Pirates have been killed, it is no
            longer possible to obtain this entry.
    
    62. Phazon Elite
           -Is located in the Elite research in the Phazon Mines. Remember, this is
            a completely different enemy to the Elite Pirates and to Omega Pirate
            and has its own entry. Once you defeat it, it is no longer possible to
            obtain this entry.
    
    67. Parasite Queen
           -Is located in the Space Frigate. Once you defeat it, it is no longer
            possible to obtain this entry.
    
    68. Flaahgra
           -Is located in the Sunchamber. Once you defeat it, it is no longer
            possible to obtain this entry,
    
    69. Flaahgra Tentacle
           -These accompany Flaahgra in the Sunchamber. Many people seem to forget
            about these. Don't make yourself one of them! Once Flaahgra is
            defeated, it is no longer possible to obtain this entry.
    
    70. Thardus
           -Is located in the Quarantine Cave in Phendrana Drifts. Once you defeat
            it, it is no longer possible to obtain this entry.
    
    71. Omega Pirate
           -Is located in the Elite Quarters in the Phazon Mines. Once you defeat
            it, it is no longer possible to obtain this entry.
    
    72. Meta Ridley
           -Is located in the Artifact Temple in the Tallon Overworld. Once you
            defeat it, it is no longer possible to obtain this entry.

           -Are located in most areas of Tallon IV. Once you have downloaded the
            map from each one, it is no longer possible to obtain this entry. I
            suggest you scan the one on the Space Frigate to get it out of the way.
    
    16. Missile Door Lock
           -Are located throughout Tallon IV. Once all have been destroyed, it is
            no longer possible to obtain this entry. I suggest you scan the first
            one you come across.
    
    18. Stalactite
           -Are located in several places in Phendrana Drifts and Magmoor Caverns.
            Once all are broken, it is no longer possible to obtain this entry.
            Simply scan the first one you encounter.

    -----------
    How To Scan
    -----------
    Scanning is one of the easiest things you can do in this game. Simply press
    left on the Control Pad to bring up the Scan Visor, aim at what you want to
    scan, and press the L Button.
    
    --------------
    The Unscanable
    --------------
    There are two enemies that cannot be scanned. The first is located in the
    Phazon Mines - Dynamo. The invisible enemy which I refer to as a Shadow Drone
    cannot be scanned so don't bother trying. The second is an invisible Bombu
    which I refer to as a Shadow Bombu. Like the Shadow Drone, the Shadow Bombu
    cannot be scanned so attempting to do so is just a waste of time.
    
    ------------------
    Getting 100% Scans
    ------------------
    Not a completely easy task. Missing one "limited-time" entry can screw up you
    up completely. How to do it? Simply fill your Log Book. No, this does not mean
    you have to scan absolutely everything, just the ones that have Log Book
    entries. Us PAL gamers were lucky enough to get a Log Book Entries percentage
    so we know exactly how many we have and need. The reward? Apart from having a
    complete vista of knowledge about Tallon IV and the Pirate's plans, but when
    you acquire your last entry, Image Gallery 2 will be unlocked. Yay!

    Well, this is where the FAQ comes to an end. I'll say it again, feel free to
    email me with feedback and corrections. A FAQ can probably never be
    "completely" finished as long as people notice something wrong with it. Help me
    achieve completeness! My email is located at the top of the page. Not bad for a
    first FAQ, right? Right...? Thank you for reading and (supposedly) using my
    guide.
