I.  Copyright and Contact Information

This walkthrough for Metroid Prime on Nintendo Gamecube is copyright
October 4, 2004.  I wrote this for free, I wish it to remain free.  It
will not be placed anywhere that someone would need to pay to view it.
If I find that that has happened, I will contact the necessary person or
people needed to have that immediately corrected.  Do not steal this
walkthrough and claim it as your own, should you do that and I find out,
you will not like the results.  If you do write your own guide for this
game, then give me the necessary credit.  Do not alter this guide in any
way shape or form.

Many people in the past have asked me if they could copy other guides
in the past onto their computers and or print them.  The answer to that
is this:  You may do anything with my guides that you wish as long as
there is no money involved.  You may not make money from my work.

Now I will discuss my contact policies.  As of September 6, 2004 I have
had to alter them due to the fact that a very irresponsible individual
sent me a computer virus piggybacked to their email.  Due to the fact that
that happened you must do the following if you are to contact me:
1.  Go to www.cheatcodes.com and contact me via the member contact method
at that website (even though this guide will also be on www.gamefaqs.com).
2.  It must be in English.
3.  You must use proper grammar and spelling.  I will not even try to
attempt to read something like the following:
DUD U RUL!  GR8 GIDE!  I AM STUCK ON LEVEL ### AND I NEED HELP! WOOT!
4.  If I missed something major that is not in here like an Energy Tank,
Missile Expansion, Power Bomb Expansion, any type of a scan, please tell
me.  I will give you full credit.  
BUT PLEASE READ THE GUIDE FIRST!  That is why I wrote it.  If you email
me on something and it is covered I will not respond to you.  Do not send
any negative emails.  I will accept constructive criticism.  For example:
Dude, your guide sucks!  I could write a better one.
If you wish to do that, then write one and shut up.

II.  Story

(Taken directly from instruction manual.)

THE CHOZO

The Chozo...  Over millennia, this bird-like race of creatures made
incredible technological and scientific leaps.  Traveling at will through
space, they built many marvels across the universe-technological wonders
of unfathomable complexity and cities unmatched in beauty.  They shared
their knowledge freely with more primitive cultures and learned to respect
and care for life in all its forms.

Even as their society reached its technological peak, however, the Chozo
felt their spirituality wane.  their culture was steeped in prophecy and
flore, and they foresaw the decline of the Chozo coinciding with the rise
of evil.  Horrified by the increasing violence in the universe, they began
to withdraw into themselves, forgoing technology in favor or simplicity,
Tallon IV was one of several refuges they built - a colony bereft of
technology, built of natural materials and wedded to the land and its
creatures.

The years passed, and in time a great meteor crashed into Tallon IV,
sending a massive spume of matter into the atmosphere and impregnating the
land with a cancerous element known as Phazon.  This element immediately
sank into the earth and water, poisoning life wherever it bloomed.  Most
plants and animals died, while others mutated into hideous forms.

The Chozo called upon all of their knowledge and technology to control the
power of the Phazon, but their efforts were doomed to fail.  All they
could do was build a temple over the crater at the impact site, separate
the Phazon core, and seal it away.  Believing that someday a savior would
return to the planet, the Chozo left for an unknown destination, leaving
behind nothing but engraved accounts of their time on Tallon IV.

THE SPACE PIRATES

The Space Pirates were interstellar nomads, technologically advanced in
both space travel and weaponry.  When they plundered the Metroid
population that had been discovered by the Galactic Federation on SR388,
they recognized in them massive military and energy resource potential.
They immediately invaded the nearby planed of Zebes, wiping out all life
(including most of the indigenous Chozo), and building a massive network
of research facilities below the planet's surface.

Deep below the surface of Zebes, the Space Pirates researched Metroids for
many years, even as a young girl orphaned by their raid on the neighboring
planet K-2L was growing up among the Chozo.  Trained as a warrior and
infused with Chozo blood.  Samus Aran donned a Chozo-made Power Suit and
cut a swath through the Space Pirates' operation, destroying everything in
her path, including the gargantuan mainstays of the Space Pirate army,
Ridley and Kraid.  She eventually made it to the core of their base,
destroyed all the Metroids she saw, and seemingly blew up the Mother
Brain.

But the Space Pirates were far from finished.  They immediately split
their survivors into two main camps.  One headed to Zebes to begin
rebuilding their ravaged facility and resuscitating Mother Brain, Ridley,
and Kraid.  The second set out in search of a planet with powerful energy
resources.  They didn't search far before they discovered Tallion IV,
which was still emanating huge pulses of energy from the Phazon contained
beneath the Chozo temple.  Entranced by the massive potential of the
strange mutagen, they immediately moved in, retrofitting their
laboratories, transporters, and life-support systems into the Chozo Ruins.

As the Space Pirates mined the Phazon and experimented with it, they found
that its capacity to mutate was unlike anything they'd ever seen, and they
promptly started combining it with indigenous life-forms.  They refined
their operation, powering their machinery with thermal-powered engines
sunk in the molten depths of Tallon IV, they drove deep mineshafts and
mined more and more Phazon, shipping it to their two main labs in the
Phendrana Drifts, where sub-zero temperatures made specimen containment
safer.  Research leaped forward: by harnessing Phazon's power, they were
able to create untold horrors that soon patrolled the dark caverns below
Tallon IV's crust.

The Space Pirates also transported many species to their orbiting ship for
zero-G Phazon experiments, unaware that Samus Aran had finally tracked
their ship to its low orbit.  As they continued with their unnatural
experiments.  Samus sped toward Tallon IV, preparing to wipe them out once
and for all...

III.  Walkthrough

Okay before we begin let me say a few things.  I will frequently reference
you to the map.  I will not tell you where enemies are, except for the
first time, however, as you get more and better equipment I may drop a
hint on better ways to beat them from time to time.  I will include all
of the Missile Expansions, Energy Tanks, and Power Bomb Upgrades in the
general walkthrough.  This will not get you through the game in the
quickest time, but you will beat the game with 100% completion, if you
follow the walkthrough.  Any and all directions that I give will be from
the door you just came from.  If there are no new enemies then I will just
tell you what you have to do in the room/area to get to the next room/area
to get where you need to be.  When I tell you to scan something please do
so.  Almost everything you scan will be red in color except for creatures
and a few other exceptions.  Remember, save early and save often.  Enjoy
the game because it kicks all ass.

stunned.  When it is stunned scan Flaaghra itself for your log book.  Now
you can begin to fight.  Shoot at Flaaghra until it is stunned.  When that
happens run over to any of the sun dishes that has light coming out of it
and shoot a missile at the back of it at the red light.  That will take
care of round 1.  Now each round you will have to do the same thing to
each of the sun dishes that are in use.  In the last round you will have
to blast all 4 of them.  After you have blasted all of the sun dishes for

to get to the next room.  Kill the enemies in here and then do some more
platform jumping to reach the blue door at the end.

PIT TUNNEL
First scan the Triclops below the floor grating.  Now go into Morph Ball
mode and go under the grating to the other side of the room.  If you near
any of the Triclops, then set a bomb on the ground before it can get a

especially if your timing is off.  On the first metal block you come to
there is an opening above you.  You need to double bomb jump up to the
platform above and to the left.  When you get to the end you need to
double bomb jump again.  Roll to the left some more to the end and then
double bomb jump again.  You will get Energy Tank #4.  Now drop down to
the bottom and go through the opening to the left.  And go through the

platforms to jump across.  Do this quickly because you are on a timer.  At
the end you will get the Boost Ball upgrade.  Now drop down into the
half pipe and use the Boost Ball to get out and onto the ledge.  Make your

door on the other end.

CHAPEL OF THE ELDERS
In here you can see the Wave Beam upgrade across the room from you, go to
it.  As you approach you will have to do battle to get it.  Kill all of
the Baby Sheegoths that come toward you.  After they are all dead, a new
creature will show up.  It is the Sheegoth.
BOSS BATTLE:  Sheegoth
First scan it.  Now there are 2 ways to fight it.  The safer method is to
wait for it to use it's ice breath or whatever you want to call it and
then shoot a missile into it's mouth when it's done doing that.  It will
take several missiles.  Or you can just Morph Ball up and go underneath
it and set bombs like crazy.  That will kill it faster but you will take
a ton of damage.  After it's dead get the Wave Beam upgrade.  Go to Ice
Ruins West.

will eventually become stunned.  After that happens the veins will change
color.  Repeat this and Metroid Prime will retreat to another room.

Now it is time for round two!  Scan Metroid Prime again.  This time just
wait for it to drop Phazon deposits and then go and stand in them.  It
will also release Fusion Metroids when it does this.  Use a Power Bomb
to remove them from play.  Go and stand in the Phazon Deposits and you
will see the words "Hyper Beam"  Press and hold in fire to smoke Metroid
Prime.  You will have to do this a couple of times.  But then it is over.

Enjoy the ending you get.  There are 3 different ones, and the one you get
depends on your completion percentage of the game.
