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

---------------------------
SIDE-TRIPS AND BACKTRACKING
---------------------------

Some players like to get items as soon as they can while going for a perfect
file, other players just want to beat the game and could care less about having
a perfect file.  I've tried to make a walkthrough that fits both styles of
play.  Side-trip sections to pick up extra items and scans are integrated in
the walkthrough as indented sections.  If you just want to beat the game, skip
the indented sections.

Backtracking is inevitible in Metroid games.  Some players learn the areas and
maps quickly, other players get horribly lost every time they try to go
somewhere.  Right now, the walkthrough section details the actions you should
take in every single room, including a room-by-room guide to backtracking for
the players that need it.  So far, I haven't denoted what's backtracking and
what is not.  In the future, perhaps I'll mark the backtracking sections with
something besides dashes so players that don't need help backtracking can skip
them easily.

--------
SCANNING
--------

A large portion of the game will require scanning with Samus's Scan Visor.
Press Left on the D-Pad to activate it, then hold the L button while looking at
a target to scan it.  Things that show up blue or red have not been scanned.
Things that show up green have already been scanned, or have the same scanning
results as something that has already been scanned.

I've tagged everything that needs to be scanned to go in your log book with a
"LOG" tag at the top of every room when you enter it.  Make sure you find and
scan all of these tagged items if you want a perfect file.

----------
EXPANSIONS
----------

"MISSILE" tags at the start of a room denote that you can get a missile
expansion from the room.  "POWER BOMB" tags denote that you can get a Power
Bomb expansion.  "BEAM AMMO" denotes that you can find a Beam Ammo expanison,
and "ENERGY TANK" denotes that you can get an energy tank.  If you're looking
for expansions, you can find them in the walkthrough by doing a Control+F
search for those tags (make sure you keep the "match case" button checked).
I will have a complete expansions section at the end of the guide as soon as
possible.  (And a complete Log Book section.)

----
KEYS
----

Lots of players on the board seem to have trouble finding the keys to the
various temples, so I've tagged rooms with keys in them with a [DARK TEMPLE
KEY] or [SKY TEMPLE KEY] tag depending on what type of key it is.  If you're
looking for the keys, use a Control+F search for that tag in the section of the
game you're in.

Later, I'll consider adding a section dedicated to detailing the locations of
all the keys for all four temples.

------------
PERFECT FILE
------------

The walkthrough is designed so that you will have 100% scans and 100% items
before completing the game.  If you want a perfect 100% file, DON'T SKIP THE
INDENTED SIDE-TRIP SECTIONS.  I don't detail how to go back for them if you
skip those sections, so you could have a hell of a time tracking down the ones
you missed.

-----------
UNLOCKABLES
-----------

Several things can be unlocked, and these are some of them:

40% of all log book scans, promotional gallery unlocked.
60% of all log book scans, character gallery unlocked.
80% of all log book scans, creature gallery unlocked.
100% of all log book scans, boss gallery unlocked.

Percentage Complete 100%

There are multiplayer levels to unlock as well.  Details on that later.

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

Since this is one of the most commonly asked questions on the board, here are
the locations of all three Agon, all three Torvus, all three Hive, and all nine
Sky Temple keys.

----------------------
Dark Agon Temple Key 1
----------------------

FOUND:  Dark Agon Wastes - Trial Tunnel

This is in a small room attached to the Dark Agon Temple.  Just enter the room
and grab the key.

----------------------
Dark Agon Temple Key 2
----------------------

FOUND:  Dark Agon Wastes - Doomed Entry

After taking the portal in Command Center, you'll end up here.  It's pretty
hard to miss, since it's sitting out in the open.

----------------------
Dark Agon Temple Key 3
----------------------

FOUND:  Dark Agon Wastes - Battleground

You'll be forced to fight several Ing to get this key.  DON'T FORGET TO SCAN
THE ING WEBTRAP that seals the door during this fight.  It's a one-time-only
scan.

------------------------
Dark Torvus Temple Key 1
------------------------

FOUND:  Dark Torvus Bog - Dark Torvus Arena

After defeating the Boost Guardian, roll through the tunnel and use the
halfpipe in the main part of Dark Torvus Arena to reach an alcove in the wall.
The key is just sitting there for you to swipe.

------------------------
Dark Torvus Temple Key 2
------------------------

FOUND:  Dark Torvus Bog - Undertemple Access

The infamous second Torvus key...  No, you don't need Power Bombs or Spider
Ball to get it. Get into LIGHT AETHER - HYDRODYNAMO SHAFT.  Near the bottom,
there is a large piece of machinery.  Use your newly acquired Gravity Boost to
get on top of the machinery, then go through the portal there.  You'll end up
in Undertemple Access, and they key will be right in front of your face.

------------------------
Dark Torvus Temple Key 3
------------------------

FOUND:  Dark Torvus Bog - Venomous Pond

Yet another key that's just sitting out in the open.  You'll need the Grapple
Beam to get it.  There's a tunnel you can use near the door you first enter the
room from.  Roll through the tunnel, then stand up and use the Grapple Beam to
get to the ledge with the key on it.

---------------------
Ing Hive Temple Key 1
---------------------

FOUND:  Ing Hive - Culling Chamber

There's a Spider Ball track leading into the glass thing in the wall.  Use the
tracks to get in the glass area, then grab the key.

---------------------
Ing Hive Temple Key 2
---------------------

FOUND:  Ing Hive - Hive Gyro Chamber

Use your Spider Ball to get on the orb thing in the center of the room.
Carefully roll by the tentacles to the track at the top of the orb.  Launch
yourself to the circular track at the top, then launch yourself across it to
grab the Dark Temple Key.

---------------------
Ing Hive Temple Key 3
---------------------

FOUND:  Ing Hive - Aerial Training Site

This key can't be gotten from the main part of the room.  Instead, you'll have
to use Screw Attack to wall-jump up the walls in Central Hive West Transport.
There's a door at the top that leads to the area the key is in.

----------------
Sky Temple Key 1
----------------

FOUND:  Dark Agon Wastes - Battleground

Use the Annihilator to charge a beacon, which will let you get rid of the Ing
in this room very easily.  Then turn your Dark Visor on to see a series of
moving platforms.  Jump on them all the way to the last one, then shoot the
Flying Ing Cache to make it appear.  Destroy it while it's hovering above the
ledge, then grab the Sky Temple Key.  (You will need to enter this room from
the upper part of Double Path.)

----------------
Sky Temple Key 2
----------------

FOUND:  Dark Agon Wastes - Dark Oasis

Use a Power Bomb to destroy the rock wall near the middle door.  Jump in the
right side of the water and use your Dark Visor to find a Flying Ing Cache.
Destroy it and grab the Sky Temple Key from it.

----------------
Sky Temple Key 3
----------------

FOUND:  Dark Torvus Bog - Poisoned Bog

Drop into the water and search for a little alcove.  Turn on your Dark Visor,
and you'll see something red floating around.  Shoot it, then turn off the Dark
Visor.  This is another Flying Ing Cache, so if you didn't scan the first one,
scan this one.  Then destroy it and take the Sky Temple Key it drops.

----------------
Sky Temple Key 4
----------------

FOUND:  Dark Torvus Bog - Dungeon

Jump into the water under the portal and turn around to find a new enemy on the
ground nearby.  Scan it for a Log entry, then use a Light Beam shot to activate
the crystal above it.  Roll through the hole behind it, turn left, and repeat
the process with the second Watchdrone.  In the area behind the second
Watchdrone, use your Dark Visor to find a Flying Ing Cache, shoot it, and grab
the Sky Temple Key it drops.

----------------
Sky Temple Key 5
----------------

FOUND:  Ing Hive - Hive Entrance

Use Screw Attack to get to the other side of this area, then walk onto the
bright yellow light to head up to the top area.  Turn around and use the Screw
Attack again to get to the upper part of the first area.  Use your Dark Visor
to find the Flying Ing Cache, then blast it and take the Sky Temple Key from
it.

----------------
Sky Temple Key 6
----------------

FOUND:  Ing Hive - Hive Dynamo Works

Turn to the right and look back at the door when you enter the room.  Use that
Spider Ball track to Boost over to the floating globe, then Boost from the
globe to the second globe, and finally, from the second globe to the track on
the wall.  Drop off onto the platform at the end of the room, then turn on your
Dark Visor.  Shoot the floating enemy you see there ONCE to make it appear.
Turn off your Dark Visor, then scan the enemy for a Log entry if you need to.
Destroy it, take the Sky Temple Key, then use Screw Attack to get back to the
tunnel and exit the area.

----------------
Sky Temple Key 7
----------------

FOUND:  Sky Temple Grounds - Ing Reliquary

Head down the path to the left, then use your Dark Visor to find a Flying Ing
Cache in the air.  Blast it and take the Sky Temple Key.

----------------
Sky Temple Key 8
----------------

FOUND:  Sky Temple Grounds - Defiled Shrine

Use an Annihilator shot to charge one of the safe zones, then watch as the Ing
all walk right into it.  Use the Dark Visor to find the Flying Ing Cache, then
blast it and take the Sky Temple Key.

----------------
Sky Temple Key 9
----------------

FOUND:  Sky Temple Grounds - Accursed Lake

Scan one of the large things in front of you for a Log entry, then deal with
the Warrior Ing.  Work your way to the back-right of the room and turn on your
Dark Visor.  Shoot the Flying Ing Cache, then take the Sky Temple Key from it.

ENERGY FILL:  Samus's ship can be used to fill your energy.
MISSILE FILL:  Samus's ship can be used to fill your missiles and other items.

Start by scanning everything in the area, making sure to scan Samus's ship.
Find the spiderweb-like things hanging in front of your ship and fire at the
green centers to destroy all three of them.  Head through the door at the end
of that hallway.

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

LOG:  GF Gate MK VI

MAP:  In the back of the room, kinda hard to miss.

There are several items to scan here if you want.  When you're done, scan the
gate leading out of the room, and scan the small pillar to the left of it.
The locks will open on the top corners of the gate, so blast them both with
your beam to open the gate.  Move forward, and you will notice a large gate
blocking your path.  If you scan it, it will tell you to scan a nearby access
panel to activate it.  See the power cables on the ground?  Follw them to the
right to see a small panel in the wall.  Scan it to open the gate.

Continue forward and scan everything in the next area.  There's a hologram in
the back of the room, and when you step on it, you will download the map of
Temple Grounds.  There's another one of those spiderweb things nearby, so
destroy it and head through the door on the other side.

Command Chamber
---------------

LOG:  GSGT C Benet
LOG:  SPC B Reevs
LOG:  Bomb Slot
LOG:  Dark Trooper

Scan the trooper on the ground to your right, and then turn to your left to
scan the second trooper.  Kill the Worker Splinters, then press your X button
to use the Morph Ball.  Roll under the gate lock, and then press X again to
get out of Morph Ball mode.  Kill the other Worker Splinters and scan anything
you see.  When you're ready, use your Morph Ball to head through the small gap
in the wall to the right of the flames on the ground.

Lay a bomb with your A button when you hit an obstruction in this tunnel.  Roll
into the next part of the room and stand up.  Scan everything in this room,
including the Bomb Slot on the back of the pillar in the middle of the room.
Enter Morph Ball mode and line yourself up with the bomb slot.  Lay a bomb, and
the blast will bumb you up to the hight of the slot.  Once you're in it, lay
another bomb to activate it.

Make sure to scan one of the new ememies that appear, and then eliminate them
all.  Roll back through the tunnel into the first half of the Command Chamber
and eliminate the three Dark Troopers in there.  Then scan the newly-activated
panel to the left of GSGT C Benet's corpse to open the gate.  Eliminate the
next four Dark Troopers and enter the next room.

LOG:  GF Bridge (MK II Bridge)
LOG:  Green Kralee
LOG:  Splinter

There's another MKVI Gate in your way, so scan the terminal on your left to
open the lock armor.  Use your beam to destroy the lock in each upper corner of
the gate.

Walk forward and scan the GF Bridge up on the ledge.  Then scan the small
terminal to the right of that on the ground, and the large crate will be
hoisted out of your way.  Turn to your right and jump up on the ledge there.
You can scan the Green Kralee enemy now, and some Splinter enemies will come
out of the ground, so scan them as well.  

Work your way around this ledge until you're standing in front of the GF Bridge
you scanned earlier.  Scan the terminal to the left, and then use your beam on
the two exposed locks in each upper corner of the bridge.  Walk across it and
head through the next door.

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

LOG:  Splinter Cocoon

Walk forward and jump up on the ledge.  Scan one of the Splinter Cocoons on the
wall with the large door (the one that says you can't translate it) and then
get closer to the cocoons to make the Splinters come out.  Kill them, then
scan the terminal across from the large door.  The wench will start to lower,
but it will get stuck.  Hit the cable with some shots from your beam to make it
fall, and then jump on it to get to the next door.

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

Scan the turret on the ceiling, then hit it with a charge shot to destroy it.
Kill the three Splinters on the ground, then roll through the tunnel on the
right side of the fence that's interfering with your scanning of the terminal.
Scan the trooper on the right side of the terminal, then scan the terminal to
activate the gate.  Head back through the tunnel, roll under the gate, and head
into the next area.

Enter the room and watch the scene.  When you have control of Samus again, turn
around and find the unusual Federation crate with yellow stripes and hit it
with a charge shot.  Grab the Missile Launcher from it, and some new enemies
will attack you.  Scan one of them, then destroy them all with charge shots.

Time to do a lot of scanning.  Start by scanning the large ship, then work your
way around the outside of it, scanning all five of the fallen troopers.  Enter
the ship from the ramp underneath it, scan the door in front of you, and step
on the hologram inside to get another map download.  Head back into the main
part of the ship and walk to the large hole in the side.  Jump out of this hole
onto the ledge.

Turn left and make your way around the ledge.  When you see can't go any
farther, scan the small circular thing on the ground.  Scan the terminal next
to it, go into Morph Ball mode, and roll onto the hologram.  You'll be
launched to the other side of the room.  Stand up and walk off of the ledge in
front of you.  Run towards the red door, but don't go through it yet.  Instead,
roll through the tunnel to the right of it, scan the trooper's body on the
ground, and then go back through the tunnel.  Use a missile on the red door to
open it and head through.

-----------

LOG:  War Wasp Hive

Scan the War Wasp Hive on the right side first, then clear out any nearby War
Wasps.  Use a missile on each of the hives to destroy them.  Walk to the end of
the clearing, stand on the Kinetic Orb Launcher, and turn left.  Scan the
terminal there to activate the orb cannon.  Look across from the orb cannon to
find a large section of wall with a huge crack in it.  Hit it with a missile,
then get in the orb cannon.  Roll through the tunnel, stand up on the other
side, and go through the door on the right.

LOG:  Sandbats

The Sandbats are fast, so you'll have to scan one at the bottom-left of the
screen if you want to have time to finish the scan before it gets off the
screen.  If you don't manage to do it, don't worry.  There will be other
chances later.  Roll into the small tunnel on the left and use the save point,
then head through the main door.

LOG:  Alpha Splinter
LOG:  Dark Alpha Splinter

Walk into the room to fight your first boss battle of the game.  Make sure you
scan the Aplha Splinter before you kill it.  Simply stay locked on to it and
keep sidestepping in a circle to avoid its attacks.  When you kill it, it will
change to Dark Aplha Splinter.  Make sure you scan it again, as it's a second
entry in the Log.  Fight the dark one in the same manner as the first one (it's
not any different except for some extra energy).  When the fight is over, walk
into the ball of light and exit out the only normal door in the room.

Walk into the room to start a scene with a Luminoth.  Once the scene is over,
scan him, the machinery behind him, and the Luminoth lore on the wall behind
you.  (The Luminoth will be kind enough to heal you, too, in case you need it.)

Head back out into the Controller Transport room, down the elevator, and into

MISSILE:  Behind a spiderweb on the left side of the room.

Scan the terminal to activate the elevator, but don't get on it yet.  Instead,
turn to the left of the elevator and destroy the green center of that spiderweb
thing to reveal a Missile Expansion.  Turn around and walk to the cliff.  On
the right side, there's a violet Luminoth symbol.  Scan it, and then walk onto
the elevator hologram.  (If you were wondering, yes, you can fall off of the
huge dropoff in this room.  It'll take ten energy points and put you back on

LOG:  Blueroot Tree

Save your game.  Head up to the upper level and go through the Morph Ball
tunnel.  You'll be in some flowing sand when you get to the other side, so
press right to keep from being pulled back to the save point.  Once you're out
of the tunnel, stand up and scan the blue plant thing on your left.  The next
door in front of you is a dead end, so there's no need to go through it yet.
Instead, head back into the Mining Plaza.

------------
Mining Plaza
------------

Turn right and get on the ledge on the right, ignoring the Sandigger if you
want.  Follow the ledge until it hits a wall, and then use a missile on the
cracked rock nearby.  It'll make a small bridge when it collapses.  Sandbats
will fly around the bridge, so kill them all, and then cross it.  Procede
forward to the next cracked rock, hit it with a missile, eliminate the Sandbat
swarm, and head across the rock.  Turn left and follow the path, jumping from
rock to rock to get on top of the pillar in the middle of the room.  Head for
the door at the end of the path, which is the door they showed you when you
first entered this area.

then hit it with a missile and quickly finish it off with normal shots.  Jump
from the ledge over to the pillar in the middle of the room.  Jump from pillar
to pillar until you reach the next ledge (which will have another Brizgee),
then turn left.  Work your way around until you see yet another Brizgee.
Eiminate it, then look for the weakened rock formation nearby.  Hit it with a

scan it again.  Beating the Bomb Guardian isn't too hard.  Just keep avoiding
the bombs, then blasting it while it's mouth is open.  (It opens it's mouth
before most major attacks, such as the one where it sprays bombs up into the
air.)  Once it's dead, take the Bomb upgrade by walking into it.  Blow open the

in the room, then start scanning everything.  There's tons to scan, so make
sure you get everything off of the list up above.

Once you've scanned everything, scan the terminal by the elevator and step on
the hologram.  Jump on the platform and work your way around.  There's another
pirate up here, so take care of him to get the lock on the blue door released.
Approach the door, and another pirate will fire at you through the glass on the
right.  Kill him, use a missile on the door, and walk into the next room.

You can't do anything with the gate yet, but you can scan past it for another
Lore entry.  Then take a right and enter the second door to the Command Center.

--------------
Command Center
--------------

In this little glass area, there's a terminal that will open the large metal
door below, so scan it and anything else you missed from earlier.  Then go back
through Security Station B and into the main part of the Command Center (for
some reason, you can't go through the shattered glass in that little area, even
in Morph Ball mode...).  Head through the new door where the large metal lock
used to be.

Immediately lock your scanner onto the ship that takes off to scan it before it
can get away.  Eliminate the pirate that fires at you from the platform on your
left, then scan the terminal and board the elevator.  Walk around this area and
take care of the other pirates.  Scan the Metroids in the large case for a Log
entry, then walk to the right and around to the other side of the large Metroid
case.  Scan the computers there for another Log entry, then enter the next
door.

Use a bomb in the Bomb Slot, then procede to the next room.  (I don't know why
they put this type of room in the game... all it does is waste your time...)

ENERGY TANK:  On a high ledge, you'll need to use the storage units to reach it
              (see explanation below).

LOG:  Pirate Aerotrooper

Scan one of the flying pirates, then kill them both.  Head to the right side of
the room and scan the terminal in the middle to activate the storage units.
Head to the controls on the opposite side of the room now.  There are three
sets of controls;  Alpha (right), Beta (center), and Gamma (left).  Start by
scanning the left control module of the Alpha set three times to raise all
three storage units.  Then scan the left module of the Beta set twice to raise
two units, and finish by scanning the left module of the Gamma set once to
raise one unit.  Use the storage units as a large staircase and grab the Energy
Tank, then return to the controls.

This time, scan the right module on the Alpha set twice, then scan the left
module on the Gamma set twice (don't touch the Beta set at all).  The platforms
will now be aligned so you can make it to the door up there, so go walk through
it.

Turn left, follow the path, and then turn right to jump down into the main area
of the room.  Once the scene is done, scan Dark Samus for a Log entry.  She's
very easy to beat.  Just keep pounding on her with missiles and regular shots
until she starts to glow.  Then keep a close eye on her to avoid her diving
attacks, and hit her with charged shots every chance you get.

After the battle, scan the canisters to pick up the Phazon Log entry.  Head for
the elevator and look up on the ledge above it for another Luminoth Lore entry,
then get on the elevator and enter the door on the upper level.

Look up to scan the flying enemy for a Log entry.  Then head to the other side
of the room, where the next door is.  Activate the safe zone and turn to your
left.  There's a spot on that pillar that needs to be hit with a missile, so
go ahead and hit it.  Scan what's underneath it, then look a little to the
right.  There's a Light Crystal over there, but it's covered in Dark energy.
Scan it for a Log entry, then hit it with the Power Beam to clean it off.

Run to that safe zone now.  There's a Light Beacon in front of you near that
white door, so shoot it with a Dark Beam shot.  Now scan it for a new Log
entry.  Turn back to that thing you hit with the missile earlier (the Light
Lift Crystal) and shoot it with the Dark Beam to make the platform lower.

Jump on top of that lowered platform, turn left, and jump to the next platform
to get the second Dark Temple Key.  There's nothing to do in the door behind
the key right now, so instead, turn to the right and jump to the platform over
there.  Head across the next one to the door and head through it.

when the bomb explodes to launch yourself to the other side.  Then roll out of
the tunnel and exit the room.

-----------

Take the elevator down, then head to the left.  At the first Light Beacon you
come to, turn left.  Blast the crates to reveal a terminal.  Scan the terminal
to unlock one of the three locks on the next door.  Turn right now and head for
the moving platform on the far side of the room that comes close to the ground.
Jump on it when it gets close to the ground and activate the beacon on it.

Look down to the ledge in front of you and scan the second terminal to unlock a
second part of the lock.  Then turn around and jump on the next platform.  Turn
right from there and jump onto the third platform, then to the Light Crystal on
the ledge.  Scan the third terminal and head for the door.  (Stand around in
the safe zone for a while if you're low on energy.)

There aren't too many safe zones here, so make sure you run fairly quickly.
Head for the other side of the room and scan one of the laser enemies when you
encounter them for a Log entry.  Jump up to the ledge at the end of the area,
and look to either side of the platform for a piston thing that goes up and
down.  Roll onto one of them to enter the upper area.

Roll all the way around this area to the last Bomb Slot, then start setting
bombs in them to make the center platform release.  Jump onto it when it does,
and enjoy the ride.  Keep looking forward and blast the small flying enemies
that attack you.  Energize the portal at the end of the ride with a Light Beam
shot and walk through it.

LOG:  The World Warped

Jump down and walk forward, using a Light Beam shot to move the first block out
of your way.  Deal with the Pirates, then jump over the next block.  Turn
around and use a Light Beam shot to move it, then jump on it and onto the ledge
in front of you.  There's another movable block in that area, but there's a
Super Missile door behind it, so you won't be able to enter it yet.  Continue
down the path and use one more Light Beam shot to move the block in front of
you, then jump across it to the platform.

When you get to the Luminoth gate, don't go through it yet.  Instead, look for
a tunnel to the left of it and roll through it.  At the end, use a Light Beam
shot to move the block, then scan above you to find a Luminoth Log entry.  Roll
back up the tunnel, translate the gate, and head out the door.

Scan one of the two large enemies that attack you, then kill them.  Lock onto
them and use the B button to sidestep, then hit them with charge shots or
missiles in the back until they die.  Next, scan one of the small things near
the pillar in the center of the room for another Log entry.  Then work your way
to the upper level by jumping on the small pillars.  Run across the bridge to

LOG:  Dark Pirate Commando

MISSILE:  Hard to miss this one... it's on the ledge between Forgotten Bridge
          and Abandoned Worksite.

Scan the new enemy for a Log entry, then get ready for a fight.  It's important
to stay above the water, or you'll be pretty much helpless against them.  Once
you've killed them, get up on the bridge, walk to the other side, grab the
missile expansion, and then exit through the blue door.

------------------
Abandoned Worksite
------------------

LOG:  Sporb

Scan the enemy on the wall to the left.  There's a tunnel on the right side of
the ledge, so roll through it.  The thing you scanned earlier will rip you off
the wall, so destroy it with a missile once you're back on the ground.  Jump
back to the ledge and re-enter the rail area.  Work your way to the other side
using bomb jumps, then drop down the other side and roll through the red tunnel
to get to the other half of the room.

There's another Sporb on the left here, but you don't need to deal with it this
time.  Just jump down from the ledge and head to the back-right of the room to
exit out the Light Beam door.

------------
Great Bridge
------------

Scan the terminal on your right to activate the cannon across the room, then
jump over to it using the ledges on the right.  Watch out for those Shriekers,
because they can do some serious damage and can be difficult to kill.  Get in

of the bridge.

Press right on your control stick to slide down the next ramp, grab the energy
tank, and continue out to the bottom.  Head out the right side of this screen
into Great Bridge, and then use the cannon on the right to get back on the
bridge.  Enter the Dark Beam door, then head through the Dark beam door on the
other side of this area.

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

Fight off the multitude of Space Pirates to make the lasers stop blocking the

LOG:  Our War Begins

As soon as you enter the room, walk a little forward, then turn around and roll
under the floor you were just on to get a missile expansion.  There's a
Grenchler in this hallway... I suggest not even bothering to fight it in here.
Instead, head past it and roll through the drain thing to the other side.
There are two Sporbs in this little area, but there's no reason to fight them,
so just head out into the other area.  Scan the Luminoth thing on the wall for
a Lore entry, then exit using the Light Beam door.

LOG:  Boost Guardian

[DARK TEMPLE KEY]

Stand around in the Light Crystal's safe zone long enough to totally charge
your energy, then roll through the tunnel farther into the arena.  You'll have
to fight Boost Guardian now.  Start off by scanning him for a Log entry, then
hit him with Super Missile blasts until he starts to roll around the room.

Enter Morph Ball and roll around too, dropping bombs randomly.  When he turns
into a reddish-clored fluid, he'll try to latch onto you.  Lay bombs in his
path, and he'll return to his first form after a few hits.  Smack him with a
few Super Missiles again, then repeat the bomb trick.  Once he returns to his
original form the second time, you should only need one more Super Missile to
finish him off.  Grab the Boost Ball and head bak through the tunnel.

Hmm, a halfpipe right here, eh?  Use it to boost your way up to the red
circular area on the left side and grab the Dark Temple key.  Then drop back
down and use the halfpipe to get back on the upper ledge and exit the door.

MISSILE:  Work your way through the tunnel area, making use of both Bomb Slots
          to alter the path.  Use the Boost Ball to get to the top of the
          halfpipe's right side for the missiles.

Roll forward, use a bomb to jump up the ledges, and then use the Bomb Slots
when you fall.  It'll cause a platform to rotate, granting you access to
different parts of the tunnel.  Make it to the second branch of the tunnel,
then use the halfpipe to propel yourself to the top-right area for the missile
expansion.  Then exit the area the same way you entered it.  (The other room
nearby requires some things you don't have yet.)

afterwards.  When you run out of track, use one last bomb to boost yourself
through the new tunnel above you.

Roll out the tunnel to the other side.  Sometimes the gate in the tunnel fails
to open correctly.  If that happens, roll away from it and approach it again
until it actually opens.

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

There are four Spinners around the outside of the room.  Get in the red one and
use the Boost ability to spin it until the inner circle of the room starts to
glow.  Then use a bomb to knock yourself out of the Spinner and get in the
yellow one.  Spin it until the first and second rings are both glowing, then
use a bomb to exit the Spinner.  Enter the blue Spinner and rotate the floor
until the first three rings are all glowing, then use the purple Spinner to
finish the job.

Grab the Seeker Missile upgrade from the middle of the room and head for the

Drop in the water and take out the Blogg, then head to the other end of the
room and scan the Luminoth projector for a Log entry.  Now look up at the
surface of the water to the two platforms.  They have crystals on the bottom,
so shoot them both with a Dark Beam shot to turn them over.  Head back to the
side of the room you entered on and use the platforms to get back above water,
then use the newly-turned platforms to jump over to the laser and then to the
Bomb Slot near the next door.  Activate the slot, then drop back into the water
to use the portal that is now accessible.

Kill the Blogg and then use your Dark Beam to flip the two platforms again.
Turn to the right and head up the platforms to get above the water again, then
jump across them to get to the other side of the room, and finally to the
now-active cannon on the side of the room.  Get in it, and then exit the Light

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

Drop down and head through the blue door below you.

--------------------
Hydrochamber Storage
--------------------

Grab the Gravity Boost from the room.  It will function like the Gravity Suit
from other Metroid games, where it allows you to move underwater with no speed
penalty.  It also allows you to float for a while by holding the B button down
after doing a space jump.  Exit the door when you're done.

-----------------
Main Hydrochamber
-----------------

Don't forget to scan the Alpha Blogg if you failed to do so earlier.

You'll have to fight an Alpha Blogg.  Dodge it's sound blasts, and when it
tries to ram you, hit it in the mouth with a Super Missile just like the normal
Bloggs.  Do it five times, and the fans will retract, allowing you to jump in
the alcoves at the sides of the room.  Jump in one of them, then jump across
to the platform on the end of the room.  From there, jump across to the door
you entered the room through.  You'll have to use the floating feature of the
Gravity Boost for both of those jumps.

-----------------
Hydrodynamo Shaft
-----------------

Enter, jump up the first two ledges, and then turn to the left.  Jump on the
spinning thing to find a portal.  Activate it and head through.

Use the hologram to enter the main tube, then work your way to the other side,
preferably without being smashed.

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

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

A Hunter Ing will come out of the pink stuff, but there's no reason to fight it
unless you want to.  Just head through the door on the other side of the room.

----------------
Undertransit One
----------------

MISSILE:  Use bomb jumps to get in the upper areas of the pipes on the left
          side of the fan.

Enter the hologram to get in the main tube area, then roll to the left.  Parts
of the floor look solid, but you can fall through them.  Use bombs to make your
way through the fan in the middle.  Drop down the left side until you are on
the lowest part of the tunnels, then bomb jump from that spot, but instead of
pressing right to get back to the fan, press left.  From there, bomb jump and
press right to grab the expansion.  Drop all the way down to the bottom, then
use bomb jumps to exit through the left side of the area.

-----
Crypt
-----

Use a Dark Beam shot on the crystal in front of you, then use the newly active
platforms on the right to work your way around and up to the Light Beam door.
Eliminate the dark pirates if they cause too much trouble.

-----------------
Undertemple Shaft
-----------------

Jump down to the grated floor below you, then look on the same wall as the save
point room to find a hole in the grate that leads down to a safe zone.  Enter
that hole, then head through the path into the center area of the pillar.  Use
a bomb in the Bomb Slot on the left side of the pillar, then exit the next
door.

--------------------------
Sacrificial Chamber Tunnel
--------------------------

There's some poison grass stuff on the other end of the tunnel, so watch out
for it.  Other than that, just head through the next door.

-------------------
Sacrificial Chamber
-------------------

LOG:  Grapple Guardian

LOG:  Grapple Point

Scan the thing before you forget, then stay close to one of the safe zones.
Hit it in the mouth until it shakes its head, then it'll use a grapple beam
attack on you.  Stay between it and one of the blue pillars, and he'll get his
grapple beam stuck on the pillar.  Jump behind him quickly when that happens
and hit him in the back with a Super Missile.  Repeat this process until his
shell breaks.

His attack pattern will now change, but it's still pretty similar.  Shoot him
in the face until he shakes his head, but then you can just hit him while he's
doing it.  It doesn't even need to be from behind.  Once he's dead, grab the
Grapple Beam, jump up to the platform across from the door, and use the Grapple
Beam to swing over to it.  Scan the Grapple Point for a Log entry.

--------------------------
Sacrificial Chamber Tunnel
--------------------------

Same as before, watch out for the poison grass, then head through the other
door.

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

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

Turn right and use the platforms to get above the water.  If you just want to
continue the game, use the Grapple Beam to reach the Morph Ball cannon and exit
out the Light Beam door.  If you want to go on a side-trip to grab some things,
exit the blue door near you and read the indented section below.

     -------------------
     Transit Tunnel West
     -------------------

                   vertical tube.  See below for directions.

     Bomb jump to activate the Bomb Slot in the first vertical tube, then head
     for the fourth vertical tube.  It will now have current heading upwards,
     so when you use a bomb, you will travel much higher.  Get good with your
     timing to bomb jump to the top of this vertical tube and activate the Bomb
     Slot.  It will cause an upwards current in the second vertical tube, but
     it will be timed.  Head for the second tube and repeat the bomb jump to
     reach the Energy Tank.  If time runs out, go back to the fourth tube to
     activate the current in the second tube again.  Exit out the right side of
     the screen when you're done.

Turn right and jump down.  Scan the terminal there to activate the cannon, but
don't get in the cannon yet.  Continue into the main area and scan one of the
new enemies for a Log entry, then head to the back of the room to scan the
Luminoth and activate the Bomb Slot.  Quickly run into the smaller room across
from there and scan the terminal, then jump in the cannon.  Activate the Bomb
Slot up here before the timer runs out to clear the path to the portal.

Scan the Lumnoth projector up here fore a Log entry, then drop down to the

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

Roll through the tunnel to the other side, either using a bomb or your Boost
Ball to break the rock in the middle of the tunnel.

----------------
Mining Station B
----------------

Grab the Darkburst, then fend off the two pirates that attack.  You can use
your new Darkburst attack if you want, but it's very costly in the ammo
department, and a single super missile will do the job anyway.  Head for the
first cannon in this room and use it to launch up to the blue door.

----------

Head to the right, using bombs to jump when needed.  Make sure you remember to
roll across the breaking block quickly, or you'll fall down and have to start

there to the ledge on the other side of the area and enter the tunnel.  Exit
out the door on the other side of the tunnel.

----------------
Forgotten Bridge

Walk over the bridge and jump to the platform on the left.  Don't go into the
hallway, but look down a little to the left instead to see an alcove with a
portal in it.  Jump in and activate the portal.

NOTE:  Don't see a platform here?  That's because you haven't been following my
guide, you naughty reader you.  >_>  You'll need to drop the platform to
continue, so head out to Torvus Grove.  Use the halfpipe NEAR THE DOOR in that
room, NOT the one that's really far apart in the center.  Exit the door on the
upper level after you use the halfpipe, then head through the next room.  You
will end up in an upper area of Forgotten Bridge.  Use the Spinner to lower a
bridge, which will be the platform you need to enter the portal.

LOG:  Chykka
LOG:  Dark Chykka
LOG:  Chyklings

Walk into the hologram to activate the lock, then blast the four pieces of
support material holding the cocoon up on the wall when you get in the room.
A rather lengthy boss battle is going to occur.  Start by looking in the liquid
and scanning the large moving enemy for the first Log entry.  Then look around
the room for small flying enemies and scan one for the second entry.  Now keep
your eyes on the Chykka Larva.  When it comes above the water, hit it in any
way possible.

After a while, it'll start diving up and attacking you with it's tounge.  Hit
it in the head with charged Light Beam or super missiles a few times each time
it tries that.  Once you kill it in this form, scan the new form for a third
Log entry.

You have to stun Chykka before you can hurt it, so start blasting away with the
Power Beam.  When it throws the poisonous liquid at you, either to two quick
side-steps or do a double jump to avoid as much of it as possible.  If you get
knocked off of the platforms, jump back on immediately.  That stuff hurts.

Once you stun the thing, use your Grapple Beam to get behind it.  There will be
four red circles, one on the back of each wing.  Fire a super missile at one of
them, then stun the thing again and repeat until all four wing targets are
destroyed.

Dark Chykka will expel tiny little versions of itself, so scan one for a Log
entry, then slaughter them to get energy and ammo.  Wait for Dark Chykka to
settle down on one side of the room, then use your Grapple Beam to get closer
to it.  Hit it with charged Light Beam shots.

The rest of the battle will be identical to the previous parts.  Once it's
completely dead, grab the Dark Visor, turn it on, and head up the invisible
platforms.

middle area of the room, so take care of them.  Scan the terminal on the left
to rotate the gate in your way.  Scan the small robots on the right of the next
part of the room for a Log entry, then use the Spinner on the left side of the
end of the hallway.  Exit through the blue door once you're done with the
Spinner.

------------------
Sanctuary Entrance
------------------

Walk down the bridge and a large group of pirates will attack you.  Eliminate
them all, but don't waste any good firepower when they have their orange arm
shields deployed;  they can't be hurt when they're like that.  Use a Light Beam
shot to open the door when you've dealt with them all.

When you get to the dead end, use your Dark Visor to find the Seeker Missile
targets and open the gate in front of you.  You'll release a Rezbit enemy, so
scan it for a Log entry.  These things can be horribly dangerous, so destroy it
as fast as possible.  If it hits you with it's scrambling attack, hold the L,
R, and B buttons all at the same time to correct your screen.  Jump up to the
newly-dropped bridge and head through the blue door when you're ready.

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

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

Scan the terminal in front of you to learn the order of the safety shutdown for
the gyroscope.  Turn to your left to see a Morph Ball tunnel and enter it.
When you get to the outside, you'll notice four Bomb Slots around the gyro.
Bomb them in the same order the terminal told you, which was orange, blue, red,
and green.  A path will them open directly down the center of the gyroscope, so
roll through to the door on the other side.

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

Clear out the Nightbarbs flying around, then grapple to the other side.  Turn
around and look on the wall on the other side of the Grapple Point using the
Dark Visor.  You'll see five red circles, so use the Seeker Missiles to blast
them.  The shield blocking the portal will then be released, so you can head
through it after you activate it.

LOG:  Diligence Class Drone
LOG:  Mechlops

Scan the blue sphere enemy in front of you for a Log entry, then destroy it
with a single shot of Dark Beam.  Head farther into the room and look down at
the grate to scan another enemy for another Log entry.  Roll under the floor
using the ramp on the right side of the door.  Use bombs to kill the Mechlops
enemies and work your way to the other side of the room.  Use the next ramp to
get back up, then stand and exit the Dark Beam door.

-----------------
Main Gyro Chamber
-----------------

Ignore the locked gate and elevator for now.  Instead, turn right and look on
the wall for a tunnel, then roll through it all the way to a Bomb Slot.  Place
a bomb in it, then take a look at the pattern on the wall.  You have to shoot
the four small spots between the nine bigger colored ones to rotate them.  Hit
the top-left one first, then the top right, then the bottom-left, then the
bottom-right.  That should align the red ones on the top, the green ones in the
middle, and the blue ones on the bottom.  Bomb the new Bomb Slot to stop part
of the gyro.

There's a save station behind the missile door near you, so go use it if you
want.  Then head back through the first half of the tunnel.  Stand up in the
clear spot and walk over the gyro to the other side of the room.  Enter the
next tunnel on the left of that side, then use the Sinner to lower that gate
you saw when you first entered the room.  Scan the terminal and use the
elevator to get to the next blue door.

Jump down, and you'll have to face two dark mechanoids.  Make sure you scan one
of the heads and one of the bodies for two new Log entries, then dispatch them
the same way you would normally.  Use the platforms and your Grapple Beam to
reach the door to the Controller Access when you're done.

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

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

I still don't see what the point in having these rooms was...  You already know
how to get through them, so why make so many?  Anyway, head through, activating

LOG:  Spider Guardian
LOG:  Spider Ball Track

MISSILE:  On the way out of the area, you literally can't miss it if you take
          the upper exit.

Look at the little blue energy encasements to either side of the tunnel in
front of you.  An enemy will appear in them every few seconds, so scan it for a
Log entry.  Roll through the tunnel when you're ready to start the most bizarre
boss battle ever.

The enemy will follow a set path along the tracks, so perhaps the best idea
from the start is to simply watch it from a safe spot and learn the path.  Once
you've got it down, you have to start hitting it with bombs.  Hit it until it
glows green, then go activate the Bomb Slot.  Follow the enemy when it leaves
the screen to start round two.

His patern will be very obvious this time.  Hit him until he turns green, and
a new platform will appear below the Bomb Slot.  Get up there and use it as
soon as you make the boss green.  Follow him once he leaves the screen to start
round three.

Same thing, smack him a few times until he turns green, then use the Bomb Slot.
Make sure he's heading to the right when you drop down for the Bomb Slot, or
you won't make it to it.  Follow him to start the final round.

This time, he'll move back and forth along the bottom until you activate a Bomb
Slot.  When you stun him, you can Boost through him without taking any damage,
so hit him with a bomb, then boost to his other side and wait for him to come
back.  Hit him again, boost through again, and so on until he turns green.
Activate the lower-left Bomb Slot the first time he turns green.

This time, you'll have to activate two slots in a short period of time.  Make
sure he's heading to the right when you hit him with the last blow before he
turns green, then boost through him.  Set off the lower-left Bomb Slot, then
jump up to the upper-right Bomb Slot and activate it.

For the last one, you'll have to activate all three Bomb Slots.  Do it just
like the second one, making sure that he's heading to the right directly before
you make him green.  Get to the three slots as fast as possible, and you'll win
the fight.  Follow him to get the Spider Ball.

Use the Spider Ball to get out of the area.  When you reach the upper area, use
a bomb to jump above the tracks instead of continuing to the left on them.
You'll pick up a missile expansion right before heading through a tunnel.  Scan
the Spider Ball Track for a Log entry, then use the track to climb the ledge
near you.  Scan the Luminoth if you didn't do it when I told you to earlier,
then head through the blue door.

MISSILE:  Use the Spider Ball tracks to get into the tunnel area.

Scan the Luminoth projector and the Spider Ball track for two more Log entries,
then use the track to get out.  Use the next track on your left to get into the
wall area.  Work your way through this maze, which is fairly simple, although
it is rather time consuming... Exit the door leading to Minigyro Chamber when
you have the missile expansion.

ENERGY TANK:  You'll have to use the Spider Ball and Boost Ball together to
              work your way through the area.  See instructions below.

Eliminate all of the enemies in this room, then enter the Kinetic Orb Cannon in
the back of the reactor.  Hold the R button when you come out of it, and you'll
stick to the orange thing.  Wait for the electricity to stop on the tracks,
then go up them.  Stop on the red dot on the next orange thing and charge your
boost ball.  Let go of the boost to jump to the next orange thing.  Wait for
the next one to stop being electrified, then jump to it.  Jump to the next one
before the electricity comes back, then wait for the next one to be clear and
launch to it.

Get on the tracks and do the same thing, then follow the second set to the
Energy Tank.  Drop down to the floor and use the nearby save point if you want,
then head for the Luminoth gate on the right side of the area.

of the area, you'll have to drop off of the track and land on the small curled
piece below you.  Roll to the right side of the curled piece and use the Boost
ability to launch over to the other curled piece.  Roll as far to the right as
you can on that one, then lay a bomb to jump to the second track.  Head all the
way to the next wall and exit the Light Beam door on that side.

the elevator to get to a terminal.  Scan the terminal to activate a Kinetic Orb
Cannon, then go use it.  Use the Spider Ball to get to the top of this area,
then walk on the hologram to enter the Turret.

Look at the top of the building in front of you to see a large cracked area.
Blast it, then blast another spot below and to the right of that.  Finally,
turn around and blast the cracked area at the top of the other side.  Exit the
Turret and use the Spider Ball tracks to get to the cannon, use the cannon to
get back to the main platform, and then head to the other side of this main
platform.

Your second Turret shot cleared out some ledges for you to jump up on from
here, so go ahead and do so.  Scan the Luminoth projector for a Log entry, then
use the Spider Ball tracks to get to the next ledge area.  Scan the fallen
Luminoth there for another Log entry, then use the cannon to grab the Power
Bomb expansion on the other side of the screen.

After you have the expansion, carefully take a step off the ledge in front of
you to land safely below.  Use the tracks to get across the bridge again and
head through the Light Beam door.

lower-left spot three times, then the upper-right spot twice, and then the
lower-right spot twice to line them up red on top, green in the middle, and
blue on the bottom.

Activate the second Bomb Slot now, then head back down the elevator.  Head to
the right and use the tunnel there.  I highly suggest continuing all the way to
the save point and saving your game, then get on the left side of the gyro.
Bomb jump to the Spider Ball track on the outside of the inner ring, and then
Boost off the end of it to shatter the glass panel.  Use a Power Bomb on the

Continue fighting Dark Samus using charge shots and Super Missiles.  This
battle is surprisingly easy.  Just avoid her when she starts to roll around,
and don't waste shots on here when the shield is up.  When you take her energy
down, she's fall out the glass on one side of the wall (and, unlike normal, she
won't be placed back on the map with a little energy loss >_>).  Jump out the
hole she makes and head along the ledge to the left to find a portal.

Turn left and jump to the ledge there.  Use a bomb to reach the Spider Ball
tracks and follow them up to drop down to a cannon.  Use the cannon and hold
your R button on the way out to stick to the next track.  Follow it to the
right until you get to moving tracks.  As you're on them, look for two red pegs
sticking out.  Lay a bomb when you get there to avoid getting hit on the end of
the track.  Do that for all of the moving tracks, then continue to the left
when you get to a large section of multiple tracks.  Follow this path to a
tunnel, and head towards the portal in the tunnel (going the other way will
send you back out, and you don't want to do that).  Grab the Beam Ammo
Expansion from this little spot, then head back out the other side of the
tunnel to drop back to the ground.

Head back to the fisrt set of Spider Ball tracks and get back in the cannon.
Head to the right just like before, but when you get over to the large section
of tracks, take the upper path to the wall right above the portal.  There's a
Bomb Slot right below the end of the track, so press up and force yourself

some practice for you to learn how to use it.  Run forward off of the ledge
where you got Screw Attack, use both of your regular jumps, then hit the B
button again to activate Screw Attack.  Keep pressing it every half second or
so to do multiple jumps.  It works a lot like the Space Jump in Super Metroid,
only you can't gain any vertical distance with it, just horizontal.  Exit the

Take the elevator and walk forward to start a huge boss battle.  Scan the thing
at the start of the fight for a Log entry, and no, that 20% thing isn't an
error;  this boss has five things you need to scan.

Start by using Super Missiles on all four of the legs.  Make sure you pick up
the supplies that drop after each leg gets damaged, because you will need them.
After all four legs are destroyed, scan the wreckage of the body for a second
Log entry.

Look up and scan the head for another Log entry.  Then use your Echo Visor and
turn towards the top of the Damaged Quadraxis.  Use Super Missiles to destory
the emitter on the top, then scan the head again for a fourth Log entry.  Use
the Echo Visor to see the emitters on the head, and destroy all three of them.
You'll have to destroy the emitter on top of the Damaged Quadraxis before each
one of the emitters on the head.

Once all three of the head's emitters are destroyed, scan the head for a fifth
Log entry.  Then use anything you have left to blast the head.  When you stun
it, watch it to see which way it floats.  Use the Spider Ball to get on one of
the Damaged Quadraxis legs before the head floats there, then Boost to the top
of the head.  Drop a bomb in one of the slots, then repeat the process to win

             below).

Use the elevator to get down to the bottom of the area.  There's an Echo door
down here, so shoot the three echo panels in the following order to open it:
The one closest to the door, the one closest to the elevator, and then the one
in the middle twice.  Get in the cannon behind the door, then grab the Power
Bomb expansion that drops out of it.

Head back to the top of the area using the elevator, then use the second
elevator to get to the door at the top.

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

MISSILE:  Use the Echo Visor and the cannon.  See directions below.

Use a charged Dark Beam shot and a missile to eliminate both Rezbits, then use
your Echo Visor to scan a panel above the door you entered.  Shoot the red
emitter to move the panel, then quickly get in the Kinetic Orb Cannon.  Follow
the area under the floor to get the missile expansion, then use the spinner
under the missile to open a hole in the floor.  Exit the room using the cannon
to get to the top door.

NOTE:  If you haven't been in this room yet, you'll have to examine the wall
       that leads to the Temple with your Dark Visor to see some Seeker
       Targets.  Destroy them to activate the morph ball canon.

to the floor.  There's another track nearby, so go up it.  You'll have to boost
your way over to several moving pieces of machinery, and there's only a small
gap in the walls between each piece.  If your screen is dark like mine, you'll
probably have a tough time with this.  Once you get all the way to the other
side of the machinery, use a bomb to get to the missile expansion, then roll
out the hole in the grating to get to the main part of the room.

Use the elevator to get to the upper area. then follow the walkway all the way

              from the top area to the Energy Tank.

Use the save point in the room on the left if you want to, then use the Echo
Visor to look around on the top of the central pillar.  There are three red
emitters on the walls, so blast all three of them to line up the lenses.  Part
of the wall will vanish once you do, so use the Screw Attack to multi-jump over

Bomb expansion and head out the second Power Bomb door.

------------
Poisoned Bog
------------

[SKY TEMPLE KEY]

Use an Annihilator shot to charge the crystal in front of you, which will
eventually kill the Warrior Ing in the room.  Drop into the water to the left
and turn around.  You'll see a little alcove there.  Turn on your Dark Visor,
and you'll see something red floating around.  Shoot it, then turn off the Dark
Visor.  This is another Flying Ing Cache, so if you didn't scan the first one,
scan this one.  Then destroy it and take the Sky Temple Key it drops.  Exit
through the same door you used to get in here.

-------------
Putrid Alcove
-------------

Go around the enemy, or shoot it and jump over it.  Either way, exit the other

------------
Plaza Access
------------

Boost through here to the other side, since you should have already gotten the
missiles earlier in the game.  If you didn't, get them now.

------------
Torvus Plaza
------------

ENERGY TANK:  You'll have to follow a horribly complicated string of Spider
              Ball tracks.  See instructions (and a note) below.

Take out the two pirates, then drop down to the halfpipe and enter Morph Ball
mode.  Boost your way up the halfpipe until you can attach yourself to the
Spider Ball track on the right side.  From here, things get ugly.  First, lure
the plant thing into attacking you, then drop down and destroy it while it's
vulnerable.  Then get back on the Spider Ball track.

Work your way around the tracks slowly, since some of them don't have anything
to keep you from falling off.  Eventually, you'll get to a spinning thing with
tracks on it.  Your view will change, and you won't be able to see what you're
doing.  Use bombs to advance, and as long as you keep your R button held, you
should still grab the track if you lay a bomb somewhere you shouldn't have.

Experiment with it for a while to figure out where to go.  You'll want to head
for the top of the first piece of spinning machinery, then work your way to the
left, where there's a second moving piece.  You'll want to get to the top of it
too, then work your way to the Kinetic Orb Cannon.  Get in the cannon to launch
over to the Energy Tank, then exit the room through the door you entered it
from.

NOTE:  Many claim that the angle of the camera is a glitch that can be solved
       by turning off your GameCube and restarting the game.  I haven't had any
       luck with this, but if you too frustrated trying to get it to work, you
       might want to consider giving it a try.

on the cracked rock there, then roll through the tunnel.  Grab the Power Bomb

Enter the cannon to get to the main part of the tunnel.  Drop down to the right
and get in the first Bomb Slot you find.  It will reverse the current for the
slot above the yellow dot a little to the right of the Bomb Slot.  You'll have
to perform an altered bomb jump to get to the next area, then bomb jump again
to make your way to the Bomb Slot in the upper-left.  Activate it, then drop
down and use the new current in the next closest part to get even higher up.
Make your way all the way to the right, then a little up to the third Bomb Slot

LOG:  Emperor Ing Body
LOG:  Emperor Ing Head
LOG:  Emperor Ing Eye
LOG:  Emperor Ing Chrysalis
LOG:  Mutated Emperor Ing

Start by scanning the top and bottom parts of the enemy for two Log entries.
He'll deploy some tentacles, so target them and shoot them all until they
retract into the main part.  Scan the upper portion for another Log entry as
soon as all of the tentacles retract.

This form is a spherical thing with a crack down the center.  Lock onto it and
side-step as it uses its laser, then shoot through the gap with either a Super
Missile or a charge-combo with the Annihilator.  Make sure you lead each shot,
or it'll miss.  As soon as you get its energy all the way down, it will curl
up into a ball.  Scan it now for a fourth Log entry.

Use Spider Ball to roll onto the shell.  There are tons of Inglettes on it, so
keep rolling and dropping bombs.  Spend a while doing that if you need energy,
then start dropping bombs on the tentacles as they come out of the holes.  Once
you blast them all, the final stage of the Emperor Ing will start.  Scan it for
a fifth Log entry.

Use Super Missiles on its mouth to change it from yellow to either white or
black.  When its color has changed, use the Annihilator Beam to damage it.
Don't waste your shots when the mouth is closed or the feet are in the way.
Keep pounding on it, and make sure you blast the smaller enemies in the area
when you can to keep your ammo high.

When you beat it, a count down will start.  Jump up the new platforms and use
Screw Attack to get to the blue door.

LOG:  Dark Samus 3
LOG:  Dark Samus 4

Scan her as soon as the battle starts for a Log entry.  Dodge the huge beams
she shoots, then start firing at her.  She'll turn invisible, so use your Echo
Visor to find her.  Blast her a few times, then scan her again after she
changes again.  (That scan will give you 100% if you haven't missed anything I
told you to scan.)

Her final form will require a little special fighting.  While she's glowing in
the middle of the room, dodge the light bursts she sends at you.  Keep your
Power Beam charged at all times, and when you see small blue dots come down
from the sky, they will stick to the Power Beam (assuming you're close enough).
Once the charged part of your beam is blue instead of yellow, blast Dark Samus
with it to cause damage.

Repeat the process until the battle is over.  Don't worry too much about the
time limit.  All you have to do is finish the fight before the time runs out.
You don't have to make it back to a portal or anything like that.  Watch the
ending and enjoy.

then use the gun to kill the three Space Pirates that appear.  Exit the gun,
jump down from the ledge, jump onto the Space Pirate Skiff, and then jump up

tracks and follow them up to drop down to a cannon.  Use the cannon and hold
your R button on the way out to stick to the next track.  Follow it to the
right until you get to moving tracks.  As you're on them, look for two red pegs
sticking out.  Lay a bomb when you get there to avoid getting hit on the end of
the track.  Do that for all of the moving tracks, then continue to the left
when you get to a large section of multiple tracks.  Follow this path to a
tunnel, and head towards the portal in the tunnel (going the other way will
send you back out, and you don't want to do that).  Grab the Beam Ammo
Expansion from this little alcove.

of the Alpha set until the three platforms are all as low as they can be, then
scan the Beta set until two are low and one is high, then scan the Gamma set
until one is low and two are high.

NOTE:  Depending on how the platforms were alligned when you entered the room,
       they might or might not always need to be moved in the same order.
       Previously, I had given exact instructions on which terminals to scan,
       and I assumed that players would still have the platforms alligned to
       reach the door.  This apparently wasn't a safe assumption, so I've just
       removed those instructions entirely.

---------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mine Shaft
---------------------------------------

Enter the top of the shaft through the Dark Beam door in Agon Temple:

Roll into the tunnel, then roll to the left QUICKLY to avoid falling when
the block breaks.  Use bombs to kill the Pillbug on the rock near you,
then bomb-jump to the top of it.  Use another bomb to get to the top area.
Roll quickly again all the way to the left, then bomb your way up again.
When you get to the second set of four blocks on top of each other, hold
left as you fall down them.  You'll enter a secret part of the wall, but
make sure you don't go too far to the left, or you'll fall down that last
block.  Instead, get right next to it and use a bomb to get up to the
ledge above it.  Bomb again to get to the Energy Tank.

-----------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Temple Access
-----------------------------------------

There's a pair of small red circles on the ground in the thin part of this
room, and the first one is smoking.  Use a bomb on it, then roll through it.
Press right on your control stick to slide down the next ramp to get to the
energy tank.

-----------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Transit Tunnel East
-----------------------------------------------

Bomb jump to activate the Bomb Slot in the first vertical tube, then head for
the fourth vertical tube.  It will now have current heading upwards, so when
you use a bomb, you will travel much higher.  Get good with your timing to bomb
jump to the top of this vertical tube and activate the Bomb Slot.  It will
cause an upwards current in the second vertical tube, but it will be timed.
Head for the second tube and repeat the bomb jump to reach the Energy Tank.  If
time runs out, go back to the fourth tube to activate the current in the second
tube and try again.

---------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Cache B
---------------------------------------

After the Chykka battle, enter the Super Missile door in Dark Agon Temple
behind the red tunnel.

---------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Windchamber Gateway
---------------------------------------------------

One side of the Windchamber Gateway has a platform near it.  Use the Grapple
Beam to swing over the chasm and grab the energy tank on the platform.

------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Reactor Core
------------------------------------------------

Eliminate all of the enemies in this room, then enter the Kinetic Orb Cannon in
the back of the reactor.  Hold the R button when you come out of it, and you'll
stick to the orange thing.  Wait for the electricity to stop on the tracks,
then go up them.  Stop on the red dot on the next orange thing and charge your
Boost Ball.  Let go of the boost to jump to the next orange thing.  Wait for
the next one to stop being electrified, then jump to it.  Jump to the next one
before the electricity comes back, then wait for the next one to be clear and
launch to it.  Get on the tracks and do the same thing, then follow the second
set to the Energy Tank.

--------------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Watch Station Access
--------------------------------------------------------

It's in part of the wall on the Watch Station side of the room.  It's in plain
sight, and you don't have to do anything special to get it.

-----------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mining Plaza
-----------------------------------------

Use the Echo Visor to look around on the top of the central pillar.  There are
three red emitters on the walls, so blast all three of them to line up the
lenses.  Part of the wall will vanish once you do, so use the Screw Attack to
multi-jump over to the Energy Tank.

--------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Meditation Vista
--------------------------------------------

There's a moving platform over the large chasm.  Time it so that you can jump
from the ledge you're on and use the Screw Attack to reach the moving platform
when it's in the right spot.  There's an energy tank waiting for you once you
can land on the platform.

----------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Torvus Plaza
----------------------------------------

Take out the two pirates, then drop down to the halfpipe and enter Morph Ball
mode.  Boost your way up the halfpipe until you can attach yourself to the
Spider Ball track on the right side.  From here, things get ugly.  First, lure
the plant thing into attacking you, then drop down and destroy it while it's
vulnerable.  Then get back on the Spider Ball track.

Work your way around the tracks slowly, since some of them don't have anything
to keep you from falling off.  Eventually, you'll get to a spinning thing with
tracks on it.  Your view will change, and you won't be able to see what you're
doing.  Use bombs to advance, and as long as you keep your R button held, you
should still grab the track if you lay a bomb somewhere you shouldn't have.

Experiment with it for a while to figure out where to go.  You'll want to head
for the top of the first piece of spinning machinery, then work your way to the
left, where there's a second moving piece.  You'll want to get to the top of it
too, then work your way to the Kinetic Orb Cannon.  Get in the cannon to launch
over to the Energy Tank.

NOTE:  Some people claim that resetting the GameCube can fix it so that you can
       actually see what you're doing.  While I've never been able to get mine
       to view anything but the back side, tons of people seem to say they've
       had a normal view, so I'd say it's worth a shot if you can't figure it
       out with the back-side view.

---------------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Fortress Transport Access
---------------------------------------------------------

Jump into the bright yellow light between the two turrets.  Grab the Energy
Tank from the small area you end up in.  (Note that you must have the Light
Suit to get this energy tank.)

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

Enter this room from the Amber Luminoth gate, then grab the missile expansion
from the center of the room.

--------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Portal Access A
--------------------------------------------

The expansion is behind a fallen Luminoth on one side of the room.  Either use
the cannons to get to the top, then drop down the middle, or just carefully
roll between the left cannon and the gate thing to get to it.

---------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Transport Center
---------------------------------------------

Once you get back from Dark Aether, use the Bomb Slot in this room to drop the
gate and grab the expansion.

-------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Command Center
-------------------------------------------

Coming from Command Center Access, take the first right on when rolling under
the floor and follow it to the end.

--------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Storage B
--------------------------------------

Enter the Dark Beam door on the upper part of Biostorage Station, then grab the
expansion from the middle of this room.

--------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Ing Cache 4
--------------------------------------------

Enter this room from Duelling Range, then drop down the ledge in front of you.
Turn around and roll into the tunnel to grab the expansion.

----------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Temple Assembly Site
----------------------------------------------------

Get on the ledge between the doors that go to the transport and collapsed
tunnel areas, then roll around the path until you get the missiles.

--------------------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Sky Temple Grounds - Plain of Dark Worship
--------------------------------------------------------

You can enter this room from the portal behind a motivator unit in Temple
Assembly Site.  The expansion is just sitting inside the large Ingworm Pillar.

--------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Communication Area
--------------------------------------------------

From the door from Dynamo Chamber turn left and jump up to the ledge.  There's
a circular thing on the ground near you, so roll on it and blow it up with a
bomb.  Grab the missiles from inside that hole.

--------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Forgotten Bridge
--------------------------------------------

Use the Bomb Slot in Dark Forgotten Bridge, then return to Light Aether and
head over the bridge to get the expansion.  You have to do this to advance the
game anyway, so you shouldn't miss this one.

----------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Underground Tunnel
----------------------------------------------

When you first enter this room from Torvus Temple, turn towards the running
water, turn around, and roll under the floor to grab the expansion.

----------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Plaza Access
----------------------------------------

Enter this room from Forgotten Bridge.  Roll forward, use a bomb to jump up the
ledges, and then use the Bomb Slots when you fall.  It'll cause a platform to
rotate, granting you access to different parts of the tunnel.  Make it to the
second branch of the tunnel, then use the halfpipe to propel yourself to the
top-right area for the missile expansion.

----------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Hive Chamber A
----------------------------------------------

Come back to this room later in the game, and you'll find a new enemy in it.
Scan the enemy for a one-time-only Log entry, then kill him.  He'll drop a
missile expansion when you do.

----------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Hive Chamber B
----------------------------------------------

This is the room where you first went to Dark Aether and lost your equipment.
There are two tunnels near the immobile grate.  One has a cover on it, so use a
bomb to break it off.  Roll through the tunnel to get the expansion.

-----------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Hydrodynamo Station
-----------------------------------------------

After you get the first bridge deployed, you can jump across and grab the
missile expansion in front of the purple door.  This is another "gimme" set
that is impossible to miss if you're not an idiot or doing it on purpose.

------------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Undertransit One
------------------------------------------------

Enter the hologram to get in the main tube area, and roll to the center.  Parts
of the floor look solid, but you can fall through them.  Use bombs to make your
way through the fan in the middle.  Drop down the left side until you are on
the lowest part of the tunnels, then bomb jump from that spot, but instead of
pressing right to get back to the fan, press left.  From there, bomb jump and
press right to grab the expansion.

-------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Crossroads
-------------------------------------------

Use the halfpipe to reach the portal in Transport Center, then grab the missile
expansion from the ledge in Dark Aether.

----------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Abandoned Worksite
----------------------------------------------

Use the Grapple Beam to swing to the ledge from the Great Bridge side of the
room and grab the expansion.

------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Portal Chamber
------------------------------------------

In the Dark Aether Portal Chamber, use the the ledges near one of the doors to
work your way around to another tunnel.  Use the portal here to get back to the
Light Aether Portal Chamber and grab the expansion.

-----------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Path of Roots
-----------------------------------------

Use the Grapple Beam to get to the top of the metal cage and grab the expansion
from there.

-----------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Torvus Lagoon
-----------------------------------------

You'll need the Gravity Boost item.  It's in the water on the left side of the
door when entering the Lagoon from Temple Transport Access.  Jump to the ledge
it's on and grab it.

------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Great Temple - Transport A Access
------------------------------------------------

There's a cracked rock near the save point.  Use a bomb on it, then roll under
the save point to get the expansion.

---------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Temple Grounds - GFMC Compound
---------------------------------------------

It's on the top of the ship.  You can get it by jumping off the top of the
crate by the hole in the ship once you have Space Jump.  When you get Screw
Attack, it's a lot easier to get.

-------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Hazing Cliff
-------------------------------------

Deal with the Metroids in here, then head along the left edge to the alcove in
the back of the room.  Use charged Light Beam shots to eliminate the Dark
Diligence Drones and grab the expansion from behind them.

------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Dynamo Works
------------------------------------------------

After beating Spider Guardian, take the Morph Ball paths out of the room.  When
you get to the top, don't follow the rest of the Spider Ball tracks.  Instead,
use a bomb to boost up to the top ledge.  Work your way to the left to grab the
expansion.

----------------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Hall of Combat Mastery
----------------------------------------------------------

Use the Spider Ball track to get in the main wall in the middle of the room.
Follow the paths until you get to the missile expansion.  It's not hard to do,
but it is horribly time-consuming.

------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Gathering Hall
------------------------------------------

Use a Power Bomb on the cracked part of the floor underwater, then use another
one on the next part below that.  Use the halfpipe to reach the Spider Ball
tracks on both sides of the room, activating both of the Bomb Slots at the end
of each set of tracks.  Then use your Grapple Beam to swing to the new ledge
and grab the missile expansion.

-------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Main Research
-------------------------------------------------

There's a Spider Ball track a little to the right of the Luminoth projector.
Make your way along the series of tracks, avoiding the moving parts when needed
to grab the Missile Expansion at the end.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Central Area Transport West
---------------------------------------------------------------

Drop onto the platform at the top of the elevator.  Look around the outside of
the room to find a Morph Ball area.  Roll down the LEFT of the three holes.
When you get the choice, take the RIGHT path, then take the RIGHT path again at
the next spot where you get to choose.

---------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Aerial Training Site
---------------------------------------------

Use the Screw Attack's wall-jumping ability on the surfaces near the portal to
reach a ledge up above.  Grab the expansion from there.

---------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Sentinel's Path
---------------------------------------------------

Use the Seeker Missiles to destroy the two enemies on the ceiling in here, then
stand in front of the Echo door with your Echo Visor on.  Shoot an Annihilator
shot at the symbol in the center of the door, and you'll hear some pings.  Use
Annihilator shots on the three pedestals near you in this order:  Right, Right,
Left, Right.  (The center one is not used.)  Grab the missile expansion from
the small alcove behind the door.

-------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Temple Access
-------------------------------------------------

Use a charged Dark Beam shot and a missile to eliminate both Rezbits, then use
your Echo Visor to scan a panel above the upper door.  Shoot the red emitter to
move the panel, then quickly get in the Kinetic Orb Cannon.  Follow the area
under the floor to get the missile expansion, then use the spinner under the
missile to open a hole in the floor to use as an exit.

NOTE:  If you haven't been in this room yet, you'll have to examine the wall
       that leads to the Temple with your Dark Visor to see some Seeker
       Targets.  Destroy them to activate the morph ball canon.

-----------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Ventilation Area A
-----------------------------------------------

Roll through the tunnel until you get to a spot where you can roll left or
right.  Roll right, kill the Pillbug, then use double bomb jumps to get on the
upper ledges.  Keep heading up the ledges to get a missile expansion.

-----------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Main Reactor
-----------------------------------------

There are two Spider Ball tracks near the elevator, so go up the one farthest
to the right (when looking at the elevator).  You'll have to boost your way
over to several moving pieces of machinery, and there's only a small gap in the
walls between each piece.  If your screen is dark like mine, you'll probably
have a tough time with this.  Once you get all the way to the other side of the
machinery, use a bomb to get to the missile expansion, then roll out the hole
in the grating to get to the main part of the room.

--------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Sand Processing
--------------------------------------------

Destroy the two turrets above the halfpipe, then use it to reach the tunnel
above.  Roll through the tunnel to get behind the heavy duty window, then scan
the computer and activate the Bomb Slot to drain the sand.  Go back through the
tunnel and grab the Missile Expansion behind where the sand used to be.

--------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Storage C
--------------------------------------

In Bioenergy production, activate the terminal that lets the storage units go
up and down, then get on the highest storage unit.  Use Screw Attack to jump to
the Super Missile door, which leads to Storage C.  Grab the missile expansion
from the middle of this room.

-----------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Warrior's Walk
-----------------------------------------------

There's a section of floor near one entrance that you can destroy with a bomb.
Do so, then drop down there and run backwards to the missile expansion.  The
Phazon will hurt, so be quick about it.

----------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Junction Site
----------------------------------------------

Roll to the center of the area and use the Spider Ball track to reach the Bomb
Slot.  Activate it, then drop down to grab the missile expansion.  Activate the
Bomb Slot again to leave.

---------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mining Station A
---------------------------------------------

Use a Power Bomb on the cracked rock on the lowest level, then get in the
cannon.  Hold your R button to stick to the Spider Ball tracks the cannon sends
you to, then follow the tracks to the left to get a missile expansion.

--------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Storage A
--------------------------------------

Use a Power Bomb on a cracked rock in Mining Station B to access this room.
The expansion is just sitting in here.

------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Great Temple - Transport B Access
------------------------------------------------

From Temple Transport B, look on the left wall in the middle part of the room
for a Morph Ball path.  Enter it and use bombs to get to the end for a missile
expansion.  Roll over the expansion, and you'll fall to the floor.

----------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Torvus Grove
----------------------------------------

Use a Power Bomb between the two weakened parts of the tree, then grab the
missile expansion from behind the rocks that get shattered by the tree.

-------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Undertemple
-------------------------------------------

Use the wall-jump surface with the Screw Attack to get to a ledge above the
portal and grab the expansion.

------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Transit Tunnel South
------------------------------------------------

From the Catacombs:

Enter the cannon to get to the main part of the tunnel.  Drop down to the right
and get in the first Bomb Slot you find.  It will reverse the current for the
slot above the yellow dot a little to the right of the Bomb Slot.  You'll have
to perform an altered bomb jump to get to the next area, then bomb jump again
to make your way to the Bomb Slot in the upper-left.  Activate it, then drop
down and use the new current in the next closest part to get even higher up.
Make your way all the way to the right, then a little up to the third Bomb Slot
in the upper-right.  Activate it, then use a diagonal bomb jump to get back to
the ledge on the left.  Use the new current to grab the missile expansion.

--------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Training Chamber
--------------------------------------------

Get on the ledge in front of the blue door.  From there, Screw Attack your way
to the statue across the room.  Activate the Bomb Slot on it, then grab the
missiles from behind it.

---------------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Sanctuary Map Station
---------------------------------------------------------

Step into the yellow light near the map terminal to teleport.  Grab the missile
expansion, then use the light to teleport back down.  (Note that you must have
the Light Suit to get this expansion.)

-------------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Sky Temple Grounds - Phazon Grounds
-------------------------------------------------

Deal with the nearby Metroids, then Screw Attack your way to the pillar that's
separated from the rest of the area.  Grab the missile expansion from it.

-----------------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Sky Temple Grounds - War Ritual Grounds
-----------------------------------------------------

Turn on the Dark Visor and use the Seeker Missiles on the door on the tree-like
thing.  Grab the expansion from inside there.


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

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


------------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Sanctuary Entrance
------------------------------------------------------

Assuming you're entering the room from Temple Transport Access:

Use the Spider Ball tracks to get to the other side of the bridge.  Use a Power
Bomb on the glass on the left side over there to get to an elevator, then use
the elevator to get to a terminal.  Scan the terminal to activate a Kinetic Orb
Cannon, then go use it.  Use the Spider Ball to get to the top of this area,
then walk on the hologram to enter the Turret.

Look at the top of the building in front of you to see a large cracked area.
Blast it, then blast another spot below and to the right of that.  Finally,
turn around and blast the cracked area at the top of the other side.  Exit the
Turret and use the Spider Ball tracks to get to the cannon, use the cannon to
get back to the main platform, and then head to the other side of this main
platform.

Your second Turret shot cleared out some ledges for you to jump up on from
here, so go ahead and do so.  Use the Spider Ball tracks to get to the next
ledge area, then use the cannon to grab the Power Bomb expansion on the other
side of the screen.

---------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Transit Station
---------------------------------------------------

Use a Power Bomb to break the glass wall and head through the portal.  A Dark
Ingsmasher will break out of the wall in the next area, so destroy it and head
through the portal behind the wall it just broke.  Roll through the tunnel on
your left when you get back to Light Aether, then use the portal there.  Use
the Spider Ball tracks in Dark Aether to get to the area above and to your
right, then use the portal there.  Roll up the Spider Ball track all the way to
the end to pick up a Power Bomb expansion in Light Aether.

-----------------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Main Gyro Chamber
-----------------------------------------------------

There's an Echo Door in the bottom area of the gyro, so shoot the symbol in the
middle of the door with an Annihilator shot.  Then shoot the three echo panels
in the following order to open it:  The one closest to the door, the one
closest to the elevator, and then the one in the middle twice.  Get in the
cannon behind the door, then grab the Power Bomb expansion that drops out of
the gyro when you blast it.

---------------------------------------
Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Sandcanyon
---------------------------------------

Screw Attack your way to the top of the ledge in the middle of the area instead
of using the cannon.  Use a Power Bomb on the cracked rock here to get a Power
Bomb expansion.

--------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Feeding Pit
--------------------------------------------

There's a Power Bomb in the poisoned water.  Jump down there and find the small
alcove with the expansion in it.  (You will need the Light Suit.)

----------------------------------------------
Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Dynamo Chamber
----------------------------------------------

Use a Power Bomb on the GF Gate, then use another one on the cracked rock under
the main path.  Grab the expansion from behind the where the cracked rock used
to be.

---------------------------------------------
Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Putrid Alcove
---------------------------------------------

Look at the wall next to the enemy for a cracked rock.  Use a Power Bomb on the
rock, and it will also kill the enemy.  Grab the Power Bomb expansion from the
area behind where the rock used to be.

----------------------------------------
Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Great Bridge
----------------------------------------

There's a door on one side of the bridge.  On the other side, there's some
cracked rock up against the wall.  Use a Power Bomb to break it, then roll
through the tunnel to get the expansion.

 - The Blogg uses speed and agility to close in on prey.  It will batter foes
with a ramming attack, then use its three tooth-filled maws to finish the job.
Bloggs have a weak spot inside their mouths:  the rest of their bodies are
covered with a thick, damage-resistant hide.

---------
Bloggling
---------

 - Young Blogg are weaker than their parents, but still violent.  Their
powerful jaws have yet to form, and they lack the defense abilities found in
adult Blogg.  They must rely on speed and agility for protection if attacked
without the protection of their elders.

--------
Hydlings
--------

 - Hydlings are small water dwellers.  They travel in packs for safety, roaming
the water in search of bits of food.  Their only defense is a bite, though
their small teeth are sharp enough to pierce metal.

                             --- LARGE FLYERS ---

--------
Shredder
--------

 - The Shredder spends most of its life in the earth.  When agitated, it will
spring from the ground, then begin to fly toward its foe.  Should it reach its
target, the Shredder will explode with considerable force, releasing a cloud of
thorns as it does.  Shredders are resilient, but can be eliminated with
concentrated weapons fire.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Torvus Lagoon

---------
Shriekbat
---------

 - Shriekbats have high internal temperatures, leading them to seek cool
climates to dwell in.  They prefer caverns, roosting on ceilings while hunting
for small prey.  Fiercely territorial, they dive-bomb anything that wanders
near.  This attack is fatal for the Shriekbat, as the impact sets off a
discharge of thermal energy.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Temple Access

--------
Shrieker
--------

 - A cousin to the Shredder, the Shrieker waits for prey half-burried in the
earth.  When it detects a target, it erupts from the ground and takes flight.
It releases a sonic blast to stun its target, then sweeps in to feast.
Shriekers can generate a stealth field that disrupts most visors, making them
difficult to attack.

                             --- SMALL FLYERS ---


----------
Lightflyer
----------

 - The Lightflyer is an aggressive flying drone.  Once loyal to the Luminoth,
it will now fire a burst of energy at any living thing within range.  It
generates light at all times, making it somewhat easy to target.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Great Temple - Transport B Access

------
Lumite
------

 - The Lumite thrives on light, and can render itself invisible to most
predators while within it.  When out of the light, the creature is relatively
harmless, relying on a crudely spat chunk of biomatter to defend itself.  Once
in the light, it can channel large amounts of solar energy into a deadly blast.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Plaza Access

--------
Sandbats
--------

 - Sandbats are small flyers.  They travel in packs for safety, though they are
predatory in nature.  Failing to find prey as a group, Sandbats will often
enter a feeding frenzy and attack one another in search of sustenance.

(Alternatively, you can find them in Agon Wastes - Mining Plaza.)

--------
War Wasp
--------

 - 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 enemies with stinger extended.  Fast-working toxins from the stinger can
incapacitate most small organisms.  If it battles foes at range, it will fire
bursts of potent energy.

---------------
Alpha Sandigger
---------------

 - This appears to be a Sandigger pack leader, larger and stronger than the
normal members of its kind.  Target both of its heads to damage it.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Agon Temple

NOTE:  One time only.  Scan it before the second half of the battle begins.

--------------
Alpha Splinter
--------------

 - Splinter war packs are dominated by the largest male.  Alpha Splinters use
their tremendous strength, size, and speed to subdue and kill prey, paving the
way for their smaller broodlings.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Great Temple - Temple Sanctuary

NOTE:  One time only, so scan it before killing it.

---------
Grenchler
---------

 - The amphibious Grenchler lurks in marsh areas in search of prey.  Fearless,
it will spring from hiding and attack anything that moves.  If it is unable to
fell its prey with its powerful jaws, it will fire a potent burst of energy at
them.  Grenchlers have one weak spot - a genetic defect makes the shell on
their back susceptible to explosive blasts.  Remove the shell to expose a
vulnerable nerve center, then target it to eliminate the creature.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Forgotten Bridge

---------
Sandigger
---------

 - Scans indicate that the Sandigger has a dual-brain nervous system.  Both of
its heads are capable of attacking, disabling, and digesting prey.  It fires
globs of acidic digestive fluid at prey to cripple them and begin the digestion
process.  Its hide is very durable and resistant to weapons fire:  only its
exposed eyes can be damaged.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mining Plaza

--------
Splinter
--------

 - When it isn't hunting, a Splinter will secrete a protective cocoon around
itself and enter a state of hibernation.  Localized seismic disturbances will
awaken the Splinter, triggering a state of blood frenzy in the process.  While
in this state, a Splinter emits pheromones that trigger frenzy in all nearby
Splinters.  Disturbing a pack of sleeping Splinters is not advisable.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Industrial Site

-----
Sporb
-----

 - The hanging Sporb sits patiently until a potential meal is detected.  A
burst of poisoned needles is the Sporb's primary means of attack.  It can also
extend its body over short distances, gripping small targets within its
powerful jaws.  Sporbs wither when exposed to Dark Energy, making them
vulnerable to other weapon systems.

-------
Brizgee
-------

 - The Brizgee's tail ends in a venomous barb, which it conceals underneath a
hard-packed layer of fused sand.  A series of ridges along its body discourages
most predators:  those foolish enough to harass the Brizgee are quickly
introduced to its deadly sting.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mining Station A

------------
Green Kralee
------------

 - The cousin to the dimensional-shifting Kralee, the Green Kralee spends its
days roaming in search of food.  A genetic defect prevents its back crystal
from harnessing energy and opening warp portals.  It is doubtful the Green
Kralee misses this ability.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Industrial Site

------
Kralee
------

 - The Kralee phases between dimensions as a defense mechanism.  A crystal in
its carapace gathers energy to fuel the creation of a warp portal.  The process
is uncontrollable, keeping the Kralee in constant dimensional flux.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mining Station B

-------
Krocuss
-------

 - The Krocuss thrives on toxins it extracts from its surroundings.  It
secretes an acidic trail in its wake as it roams in search of nourishment.  The
durable mollusk can be damaged when it exposes its toxin-absorbing gills:  few
weapons can penetrate the creature's shell.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Grove Access

------------
Lightbringer
------------

 - Lightbringers were created by the Luminoth for use in their war with the
Ing. The crystalline creatures generate a field of life-giving energy at all
times, and they can be energized like a Safe Zone Crystal.  They are immune to
most weapon fire:  only a burst of matter-antimatter can destroy them.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Duelling Range

-----------
Seedburster
-----------

 - Seedbursters are moving plants, capable of traveling great distances in
search of fertile soil to deposit their seeds in.  When provoked by predators,
the Seedburster will explode, turning the precious seed inside into a deadly
projectile.  These seeds often do not live to fruition, but help protect the
rest of the Seedburster pack from attacks.

Pillbug
-------

 - Pillbugs prefer to dwell in dark caverns, though they can exist in lit
areas.  Navigating with a series of sensitive antennae, they roam through caves
in search of moss and fungus.  Pillbugs can move rapidly, and will ram unwary
targets to clear their path as they search for food.  A Pillbug can be jarred
lose from a surfave with a concussive blast:  doing so reveals its vulnerable
belly.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Portal Terminal

(Can also be found in Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Dynamo Works)

---------------
Worker Splinter
---------------

 - The Worker Splinter is bred for service, not combat.  It spends its time
collecting foodstuffs and raw materials for the Hive.  A layer of mucus helps
to protect the creature from the toxins and chemicals it often works with.
They can generate a sturdy, pliable webbing, useful in travel thoughout the
Hive.

----------
Ingsmasher
----------

 - Designed to fight alongside the Luminoth, the Ingsmasher now seeks to
destroy them.  In close combat, it smashes its energized fists into the earth
to send out powerful shock waves, then pulverizes any immobile prey.  It will
fire salvos of missiles at long-distance quarry.  It uses an energy shield in
battle that can be adjusted to protect against a variety of beam weapons.  The
shield can be overloaded by opposite-polarity beams, however, damaging the
Ingsmasher in the process.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Reactor Access

----------
Mekenobite
----------

 - The Luminoth created the Mekenobite to help patrol the corridors and shafts
of the Sanctuary Fortress.  It uses magnetism to keep itself attached to the
walls and ceilings.  In combat, it will fire projectiles toward its target with
a magnetic accelerator.  It can only be dislodged by simultaneous explosive
blasts.  Mekenobites self-destruct once they are heavily damaged.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Sanctuary Temple

-------
Quad CM
-------

 - A Quad is formed of two components:  the quadruped Main Body and the flying
Command Module.  These units can function independently, or linked together, as
the need arises.  The Command Module Relies on ranged beam weapon attacks.  It
can generate a powerful beam shield to protect itself.  Opposite-polarity beams
can penetrate this shield, however.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Reactor Core

-------
Quad MB
-------

 - A Quad is formed of two components:  the quadruped Main Body and the flying
Command Module.  These units can function independently, or linked together, as
the need arises.  The Main Body uses melee attacks in battle.  Though durable,
it needs to vent excess heat from its body.  When this happens, it exposes a
venting system vulnerable to concussive attacks.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Reactor Core

(Alternatively, multiple other rooms in Sanctuary Fortress.)

----------
Watchdrone
----------

 - Watchdrones were built by the Luminoth to guard key areas and hinder Ing
armies.  Most of these units have betrayed their masters, and now serve the
Ing.  Watchdrones are indestructible and reluctant to move, but can be forced
into quitting their posts by exposing them to bright, pure light.  Once the
light fades, the mechanoid will return to its original resting site.

---------------------
Diligence Class Drone
---------------------

 - Diligence Class drones were the first cleaning units designed by the
Luminoth.  They were modified for combat duty once the war began, but were
outshined by the newer Harmony-class units.  A Diligence uses focused energy
beams to perform its duty.  Their energy construct nature makes them
invulnerable to most attacks, though dark energy can disrupt them.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Dynamo Access

-------------------
Harmony Class Drone
-------------------

 - The Luminoth designed the Harmony units to be free-roaming, independent
cleaning units.  They use focused energy beams and kinetic pulses to perform
their duties.  Unfortunately, they now consider all living things as filth that
must be cleansed from the world.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Great Temple - Transport C Access

--------
Mechlops
--------

 - The Luminoth tried to domesticate and train a number of Triclops for use in
war, but failed.  Undaunted, they created mechanical versions of the hardy
creatures to use in battle.  The few Mechlops that remain now serve other
mechanoids, turning their potent jaws and earthmoving power against their
former masters.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Dynamo Access

--------
Octopede
--------

 - The Octopedes were created to deliver data to Luminoth citizens.  They now
follow their routes in the service of other rogue mechanoids.  The units were
designed to self-destruct if attacked, and will explode with enough force to
cause damage.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Power Junction

------
Rezbit
------

The Rezbit, though small, is a tough opponent.  Its weapon system is potent,
capable of firing bursts or beams at targets.  A barrier shield blocks incoming
attacks.  It can also shift into an energy state to evade enemies:  while in
this state it can transmit a powerful virus into mechanoids and armor systems.
The virus can cripple your systems for a time, leaving you vulnerable.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Reactor Access

--------------------
Serenity Class Drone
--------------------

 - The Serenity drones have not gone rogue.  The units are defenseless, have no
weapons, and cannot be eaten.  These qualities make them useless to the Ing.
The small drones are assigned simple maintenance tasks upon creation and
perform them without hesitation until reassigned or destroyed.

                              --- STATIONARY ---


---------------------
Caretaker Class Drone
---------------------

 - The Caretaker drone was designed to protect and maintain an experimental
energy chamber.  It uses electically charged limbs to perform its duties.  The
drone requires sensor updated to fight:  a vulnerable detection unit will
extend periodically to search for targets.  Destroying this unit would weaken
its combat ability.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Main Research

NOTE:  One time only.  You must scan it from outside the chamber before you
       destroy it.

--------------------
Growler Class Turret
--------------------

 - The GM-42 "Growler" Class Turret is a dated design, though still quite
effective as a point-defense system.  It is lightly armored, and fast-moving
targets can evade its tracking system.  Several copies of the system exist,
including the Space Pirate "Humility" Class automated turret.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Trooper Security Station

NOTE:  These things disappear early in the game, so make sure you scan them
       when you enter Trooper Security Station the first time.

---------------------
Humility Class Turret
---------------------

 - The Space Pirates have copied captured Federation "Growler" turrets, but
found the cannon unit inadequate.  They replaced the Growler's weapon with a
powerful galvanic accelerator cannon.  The "Humility" turret packs a strong
punch, but retains the Growler system's weaknesses.  Fast targets can evade the
crude targeting system, and the armor can't take much punishment.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Biostorage Access

---------------
Luminoth Turret
---------------

 - As the number of Luminoth warriors dwindled, they turned to machines to
protect key areas.  Automated gun turrets were often the first line of defense
against Ing attacks.  Though powerful, they weren't nimble enough to deal with
agile enemy targets.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Fortress Transport Access

----------------------
Vigilance Class Turret
----------------------

 - The "Vigilance" Class Turret is found in many Space Pirate bases.  Built to
support the "Humility" Class Turret, it is as accurate as the gunner operating
it.  Many young Space Pirates begin their careers as sentries:  a tour as a
Vigilance gunner is considered a mark of distinction.

 - The Ing prize the few Pirate Commandos they manage to take alive.  Only
Hunter Ing are allowed to possess the Commandos, and the competition for that
right is fierce among them.  The Hunter Ing ability to phase out of local
timespace carries over to the Dark Pirate Commando.  They will fire bursts of
dark matter at enemies, along with experimental EMP grenades stolen from the
Space Pirates.

Dark Pirate Trooper
-------------------

 - Pirate troopers, already trained to follow orders without question, were
perfect candidates for Ing possession.  Darklings moved to take every trooper

technology struck a chord with the Ing, who now hunt actively for gadgetry of
any kind - expecially weapons systems.

 - The Chykka has rapidly aged to its adult form.  It will attack by firing
high-powered bursts if dark water at rapid speed.  If frustrated, it will
attempt to dive and ram you.  Most of the Chykka's body is vulnerable to
weapons fire, but scans indicate that such fire will only stun it.  When
stunned, however, four weak spots will appear.  These spots are vulnerable to
attack:  target them to damage the enemy.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Dark Torvus Temple

------------
Chykka Larva
------------

 - Scans indicate that this bioform is an infant, but aging rapidly.  The
creature can ensnare targets with its tongue, drawing them into its mouth.  It
then covers its prey with acidic globs of biomatter to break it down for
digestion.  This is an exceptional bioform with both a dark and light nature.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Dark Torvus Temple

---------
Chyklings
---------

 - Interaction with dark energy has mutated the Chykka.  Its offspring are now
born as flyers, skipping the larval stage completely.  These infants are highly
protective of their parent, and will streak to attack on sight.  They lack
their parent's durability, however, making them easy targets.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Dark Torvus Temple

-----------
Dark Chykka
-----------

 - The Chykka has recovered, and energized its body with dark energy.  This
energy has rendered most of the creature immune to attack, including its wings.
Tactical scans indicate that its eggsac is vulnerable, however.  Target it to
damage the crature.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Dark Torvus Temple


                               --- QUADRAXIS ---

-----------------
Damaged Quadraxis
-----------------

 - Though the main body is disabled, the tactical control unit within it is
still active.  It will guide the Head Module in battle via high-sonic
transmissions.  Disabling this module will impair the Head Module's ability to
fight.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Hive Temple

-----------------
Final Head Module
-----------------

 - Module has lost its tactical link to the main body.  Tow points of
structural weakness have been located on its hull:  Morph Ball Bombs can cause
damage to these areas.  Scans indicate that the Spider Ball can attach to the
Module's outer hull.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Hive Temple

---------
Quadraxis
---------

 - The Quadraxis unit went rogue and entered the sevice of the Ing.  Its
primary weapon system fires destructive matter-antimatter blasts.  It uses a
powerful missile battery for long-distance attacks.  The Quadraxis is
incredibly durable and well-armored, but its leg and foot joints are
vulnerable.  Damaging these joints will eventually render it immobile.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Hive Temple

--------------------
Shielded Head Module
--------------------

 - The Head Module of the Quadraxis is highly mobile and well armed.  It is
shielded by an impervious force field.  Tactical commands are sent to the
module from the crippled main body:  sever this link to impair the Head
Module's combat ability.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Hive Temple

-------------------
Stunned Head Module
-------------------

 - Head Module is unable to receive tactical data.  Force field is offline.
Unit is generating drones to defend itself while it attempts to restore
tactical link to main body.  Destroy sonic receptors on unit to prevent this.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Hive Temple


                             --- SUB GUARDIANS ---

-------------
Bomb Guardian
-------------

 - This darkling Sandigger has absorbed the ability to generate Morph Ball
Bombs.  It can throw Bombs with considerable accuracy, and requently lays a
spread of Bombs in its wake.  Its head and tail are the only vulnerable spots
on its body.  Target them when they are vulnerable to neutralize and terminate
this enemy.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Agon Temple

--------------
Boost Guardian
--------------

 - This Warrior Ing has absorbed the power of the Boost Ball.  It can
boost-blast toward its enemies, using its body as a potent weapon.  When it is
not in solid form, engaging it in Morph Ball mode may provide better attack
opportunities.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Dark Torvus Arena

----------------
Grapple Guardian
----------------

 - This darkling Grenchler has absorbed the power of the Grapple Beam.  It will
fire the beam to snare potential meals and pull them into its waiting jaws.
The beam is powerful, and can attach to most surfaces, including your armor.
Its eye region is sensitive:  damage in the area can induce a state of anger in
the target.  A weak spot under the back shell is a prime target as well.  When
angered, it will use a special attack.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Sacrificial Chamber

-------------
Jump Guardian
-------------

 - This Warrior Ing has absorbed the power of the Space Jump Boots.  It can
leap incredible distances and heights, and uses this ability to great effect in
battle.  Target can generate powerful shock waves of dark energy, and will
sheath itself in a potent force field to protect itself.  It cannot maintain
the shield indefinitely:  concentrate weapon fire on it when the shield is
down.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Judgment Pit

-------------------
Power Bomb Guardian
-------------------

 - This darkling Sporb has absorbed the ability to generate Power Bombs.  It
can fire these dangerous weapons instead of the venomous needles it normally
shoots.  The energies of the Power Bomb weapon have made it all but
invulnerable.  Tremendous kinetic damage will override the protective field,
however.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Undertemple

---------------
Spider Guardian
---------------

 - This darkling Pillbug has absorbed the power of the Spider Ball.  It can
travel over magnetically charged surfaces at will.  The creature seems to have
a connection to the local energy system.  Aggravating it may cause disruptions
to the system.

-----------------
Darkling Tentacle
-----------------

 - Some darklings can open dimensional portals at will.  They use this ability
to hunt for unwary prey, reaching out to snatch them with their tentacles.
Once ensnared, the prey is dragged to its doom.  The tentacles are resilient:
pure light energy can disrupt them.  Nothing can destroy them.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Double Path

----------
Hunter Ing
----------

 - The Hunter Ing patrol the lands of Dark Aether in search of the Horde's
enemies.  They can render their bodies intangible, allowing them to ambush
their targets with ease.  Hunter Ing can generate long, deadly tentacles, which
they use with great effect in battle.  Cunning and relentless, the Hunter Ing
will seize their prey or die.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Polluted Mire

------
Inglet
------

 - Inglets perform the menial labor of the Horde, but can be pressed into a
combat role if there is need.  They are amorphous blobs, capable of clinging to
nearly any surface.  Inglets can fire bursts of dark matter in self-defense,
though they prefer to avoid battle.  They seldom travel alone, and can be
dangerous in large numbers.  As with all Ings, they dislike bright light, and
will avoid it if possible.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Crossroads

--------
Ingstorm
--------

 - The Ingstorm is a collective swarm of tiny Ing.  When banded together, they
can emit destructive energy that, over time, can break down the most durable of
alloys.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Temple Security Access

---------------
Ing Larva Swarm
---------------

 - Ing larvae travel in swarms for protection.  They are weak, with no real
defenses or attacks.  The few that make it to adulthood are quite cunning and
vicious.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Entrance Defense Hall

-----------
Warrior Ing
-----------

 - Warrior Ing are challenging foes.  They can render themselves into amorphous
puddles and move over most terrain, including walls.  Warrior Ing can turn
their bodies into deadly projectiles sheathed in dark energy.  The tips of
their legs are razor sharp, making them formidable in melee.  Finally, Warrior
Ing are capable of channeling transdimensional energy and firing it at their
enemies.  Their only real weakness is bright, pure light, which they hate and
fear.

------------
Dark Samus 1
------------

 - Scans indicate the presence of Phazon and your genetic material within this
entity.  She wears a version of the Varia Suit, altered and augmented by the
Phazon within her.  Primary weapons include the Missile Launcher and a
scattershot variant of the Power Beam.  Boost and Jump abilities are superior
to yours.  The ability to generate Phazon energy shields is also present.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Main Reactor

------------
Dark Samus 2
------------

 - Tactical scans have identified several new battle systems in the armor of
Dark Samus.  She now wields a potent variant of your Charge Beam.  Her Boost
attack has been augmented, and the ability to render herself invisible is
present as well.  Bioscans suggest that Dark Samus can reform her body short of
total atomic disruption.  Extreme caution recommended.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Aerie Access

------------
Dark Samus 3
------------

 - Scans indicate that Dark Samus has absorbed tremendous levels of Phazon into
her body:  too much, perhaps.  She can vent Phazon energy in the form of
destructive blasts and protective shields:  doing so will help her maintain
stability.  Exposure to Phazon has rendered her invisible to the Dark Visor.
These new abilities, combined with her already formidable arsenal, place Dark
Samus at the highest threat level.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Sky Temple Gateway

------------
Dark Samus 4
------------

 - Dark Samus has temporarily become a being of pure yet unstable Phazon
energy.  She can generate a shield that is invulnerable to all attacks, save
one - blasts of Phazon energy itself.  Use your Charge Beam to collect Phazon
energy that she expels, then fire it back at her.  Direct hits will overload
and disrupt her essence.

Infant Tallon Metroid
---------------------

 - The Space Pirates use infant Tallon Metroids as a portable energy source.
Small in size, they are easy to transport in large quantities.  They are
docile, efficient organic batteries...until they are exposed to Phazon.  At
that point, they grow rapidly and acquire their full array of powers.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Biostorage Station

--------------
Tallon Metroid
--------------

 - Space Pirates harvest and enslave Metroids for use in their operations.  The
Tallon Metroid will latch onto prey with powerful pincers, then proceed to
drain its life energy.  This causes the creature to grow in size and mass.  The
creatures are vulnerable to the chilling effect of dark energy, and can be
detached by entering Morph Ball mode and deploying a Bomb.

------------------
Pirate Aerotrooper
------------------

 - Pirate Aerotroopers are known for their cold precision and utter cruelty.
Armed with both beam and missile systems, the Aerotrooper can be a difficult
foe to engage, especially at range.  Their jet packs can be overloaded with
heat-based attacks, however.  These units prefer death before dishonor:  an
injured Aerotrooper will make a suicide strike before allowing himself to be
captured.

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

 - Dedicated to "hunting the Hunter," Space Pirate Commando units have been
equipped with the latest weapons, including a variable pulse cannon, e-grenade
launcher, and energy scythe.  Powerful thrusters carry them at high speed over
any terrain.  A portable barrier shield repels most attacks, but can only be
deployed for limited periods.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Torvus Grove

----------------
Pirate Grenadier
----------------

 - The Space Pirates have begun to use an experimental energy grenade launcher
in the field.  The weapon is viewed as a mixed blessing to the Grenadier units:
while the grenade launchers are powerful weapons, Grenadiers must leave their
rifles behind to carry them.  Fast-moving targets can close range on
Grenadiers, rendering their main weapon somewhat ineffective.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Command Center

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

 - The Space Pirates suffered a serious defeat at Tallon IV, yet they remain a
powerful force for crime and disorder in the galaxy.  Their technology
continues to advance:  even the lowly trooper has received numerous upgrades to
his arsenal.  A photonic power scythe and quantum assault cannon are now
standard-issue weapons for all troopers.

Preed
-----

 - The cybernetic Preeds are aggressive hunters used as patrol animals by the

If a Preed is ruptured, the gas within it is violently released.  This toxic
cloud often proves fatal to the Preed's killer.

                              --- FINAL PHASE ---

---------------
Sanctuary Falls
---------------

 - Our battered forces gathered in the Sanctuary Fortress to prepare for the
inevitable siege there.  They didn't wait long.  Wave after wave of Ing
assaulted the greatest of our fortresses, with one goal in mind:  to sieze the
energy there.  The Ing turned the machines of Sanctuary against our warriors,
and soon all was lost.  The energy of Sanctuary was taken by the Ing.  Only one
Energy Controller remained on Aether.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Watch Station

--------
Twilight
--------

 - What few remained gathered in the Great Temple.  There, all but U-Mos, the
last Sentinel of Aether, entered into life-preserving stasis.  There they would
remain, to be released once the Ing were destroyed...or to sleep forever.  His
people safe, U-Mos prepared for the last, terrible assault.  In the silence of
the Great Temple, he prayed for savlation, for deliverance from the terror of
the Ing.

                              --- FIRST PHASE ---

-----------
Dark Aether
-----------

 - In time, we created machines to open rifts to our enemy's world.  Volunteer
scouts went through the rifts and found a twisted world, harsh and poisonous...
a Dark Aether.  They discovered that this world held the missing half of our
planet's energy.  They also say the true face of the enemy, a race we came to
call "Ing," meaning terror.  Our scouts could not survive long on the surface
of Dark Aether, so venomous was its air.  Still, we vowed to return.  We
prepared for war.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Torvus Energy Controller

-----------
New Weapons
-----------

 - Our studies of the Ing revealed the source of their attacks as dark energy.
We built weapons to use this energy, thinking it could overload enemy targets
and eliminate them.  We soon learned our error, as the Dark Beam was not of
great effect on the Ing.  We then began to develop a weapon that used light
energy.  This weapon would dispatch the Ing with terrible efficiency.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Gathering Hall

--------------
Our War Begins
--------------

 - We developed Crystals that brought the Light of Aether to the dark world.
Using these Crystals allowed our warriors to explore the enemy lands, to bring
war to the Ing.  Sadly, the Crystals were not enough.  We needed stronger
weapons, better armor.  We withdrew from Dark Aether while our greatest minds
devised new engines of war.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Underground Tunnel

-----------------
Recovering Energy
-----------------

 - We were not prepared to fight a long war.  The forces of the enemy
ournumbered ours vastly.  We sought a way to end the war quickly, without
extended combat.  We decided to build a device to recover our lost planetary
energy from Dark Aether.  Without this energy, the dark world would cease to
be, and our world would be restored to stability.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Training Chamber

--------------
The New Terror
--------------

 - In time, the Ing began to possess Luminoth as well as creatures.  Friends
and family members became the enemy, spilling Luminoth blood across the land.
Desperate, we devised shielding to prevent Ing possession.  It was effective,
but not perfect.  Should the shielding fail, all Luminoth were prepared to
self-terminate rather than become a weapon for the Ing.

                             --- SECOND PHASE ---

----------
Agon Falls
----------

 - A massive Ing attack came to the land of Agon.  Soon, the Temple of Agon was
surrounded by the Horde, with no hope of salvation.  Our gallant warriors there
were slain, and Agon fell to the enemy.  Our blood chilled when we learned that
the energy within that temple was drained.  The Ing had found the Energy
Transfer Module, and were using it as a weapon against us.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Sanctuary Energy Controller

--------------
Shattered Hope
--------------

 - None of the warriors sent to the Sky Temple returned.  Our forces searched
Dark Aether for them, in vain.  Of the Energy Transfer Module, there was no
sign.  Though saddened, we set out to prepare another mission, to build another
module, to try once more to save our dying world.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Main Gyro Chamber

-----------------
The Final Crusade
-----------------

 - While our forces on Dark Aether fought desperate battles against superior
numbers, our best minds completed their work.  The Energy Transfer Module, a
device designed to recover our lost planetary energy, was ready at last.  A
force of our greatest warriors was assembled, each equipped with the best armor
and weaponry available.  We sent this brave cadre of fighters to invade the Sky
Temple and seize the missing energy lying within.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Hall of Combat Mastery

--------------
The Sky Temple
--------------

 - We learned that the ruler of the Ing dwelled in a place dubbed the "Sky
Temple" by our forces.  This place held the planetary energy of Dark Aether as
well.  It was heavily guarded, and entry was barred by a great gate requiring
ten keys to unlock.  These keys were hidden throughout Dark Aether by the Ing.
A mission was planned, one that would find the hidden keys and recover our
missing energy from the Sky Temple.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Fortress Transport Access

------------
Torvus Falls
------------

 - The Ing turned their focus on the Torvus Bog bext, sending a vast force to
lay siege to the temple there.  Thousands upon thousands of Ing were destroyed
by our warriors, yet they kept coming until there was no Luminoth alive to
offer resistance in Torvus.  On that day, the energy of Torvus was taken to
Dark Aether, and our hopes for survival grew dim.

Age of Anxiety

 - In time, the roar of a wounded planet subsided.  The air, though fouled, was
breathable.  Light made its way through the dark veil over our world.  Slowly,
we ventured out from the shelters of our homes to see what remained of our
paradise.  What little comfort we gained by surviving was soon shattered, for
when we looked outward, all we saw was devastation.  Half of the planet's
energy had vanished from the Energy Controllers.  Aether became violently
unstable as a result.  Of the stellar object which struck our home, there was
no sign.

 - The starborne terror burnt through the heavens and struck Aether with an
untold might.  We all expected the world to shatter...but Aether held.  There
was a great devastation, however.  The green plains of Agon were scorched
forever, and the forest of Torvus was engulfed and wracked by the sea.  The
skies burned for days, casting darkness over the land.

nearby creatures and transforming them into what we would come to call
darklings.  The dark creatures became our enemies, and peace came to and end on
Aether.

----------------
The World Warped
----------------

 - Amidst this turmoil, we discovered many disturbing anomalies.  Spatial

There was little time to ponder these strange happenings, for we had to deal
with the devastation of our lands.

Light of Aether

 - The main Energy Controller was built in the Great Temple:  three
sub-controllers were built in the temples of Torvus, Agon, and Sanctuary.  They
collected the energy of Aether, then radiated it over the world to all who
needed it.  In time we came to call this precious energy the "Light of Aether."
It brought an age of peace and prosperity to the Luminoth.

Origins
-------

 - It is told that the Luminoth were not born of Aether, but of the stars.  In
the early days, we roamed the greatness of the void, bathing in the glorious
light of a thousand stars.  We met a vast number of enlightened minds...the
N'Kren, the Ylla, and the Chozo among them.  Each of them, we found, had
claimed a homeworld and formed a deep bond with it.  In time, we decided to do
the same.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Great Temple - Main Energy Controller

------------
Our Heritage
------------

 - Our search for a home took us through the cosmos.  For many a great cycle we
roamed, and yeat a place to call our own eluded us.  In time, we began to
despair, feeling the search was in vain.  We considered remaining among the
stars until a scout returned with news of a world unlike any other.  When we
beheld Aether for the first time, so great was her beauty that we forsook the
stars forever to live upon her surface.  From that day forth, the Luminoth were
of Aether, our blessed paradise.

Paradise
--------

 - Aether was a fertile, aged world with bountiful fields and oceans.  The
native creatures were gentle compared to other worlds we had encountered.  We
settled in a mountain region at first, in cliffside dwellings.  In time, we
established settlements in the green forest of Torvus and the fertile plains of
Agon.  A Great Temple was built between our three domains, a place of peace and
a monument to our accomplishments.  It was a time of harmony for our people.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mining Plaza

-------------
Saving Aether
-------------

 - Aether's planetary energy supply reached a critical stage.  If left
unchecked, the energy would expire, bringing an end to the world.  Our greatest
minds devised a way to preserve and regulate the remaining planetary energy -
the Energy Controllers.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Agon Energy Controller

------------------
The Stellar Object
------------------

 - By the time we detected the stellar object as it streaked toward our world,
it was too late to stop it.  We fired numerous weapons at it in a vain attempt
to alter its trajectory.  Nothing worked.  Our efforts placed a great strain on
the Energy Controllers, and weakened Aether.  All we could do as the object
drew closer was take shelter and wait.  We gathered stores of food and water,
reinforced the shielding on our dwellings, and spent the last hours in peace.

 - Soon I shall pass to final rest.  My key is in place.  Through my spiritual
link to the others, I know where their bodies lie.  I shall leave this
knowledge, that their last location in the dark world can be known.  May this
knowledge lead our warriors to the Sky Temple Keys.

The time draws near.  Hear the words of A-Kul, she they call Champion of
Aether.  Know that my warriors fought and died with uncommon valor.  Don not
look unkindly upon their failure, for they died to save us all.

Science teams detected the presence of Phazon in the Dasha system four cycles
ago.  High Command authorized the deployment of our team shortly thereafter.
Our orders are to establish a base on the planet Aether and evaluate local
Phazon resources.  Because this world lies on the periphery of Galactic
Federation territory, we are following stealth protocols at the highest level.
A cadre of elite Commandos has been dispatched to provide security for our

A spatial anomaly has been found within our base.  We believe this rift in

returned with incredible news.

The portal leads to a parallel version of Aether.  This "Dark Aether" has
suffered a global calamity, turning it into a toxic wasteland.  It is the
homeworld of the shadowy creatures who have been raiding our base of the last

Samus Aran, the accursed Hunter, has arrived.

The sudden arrival of the Hunter is strange enough, but her actions are
stranger still.  She does not seek our destruction, but our Phazon.  With each
raid, she steals Phazon ore, only killing those who attempt to deny her.  What
she needs it for, we do not know - though Science Team suspects she requires
it to power her new armorsuit.  Dark in color, it is equipped with strange new
weapons.  The troops now call her the "Dark Hunter."  It is a fitting title.

The Dark Hunter teleports into the base at will.  Our security has proven next

more Phazon to her, but she also crippled the stealth field generator with her
strange new weapons.  We are exposed.

Until the replacement generator arrives, we will be vulnerable to scans and
detection.  Our presence here is still minimal:  should the Federation find us,
we will be unable to defend our position.  Fortunately, Aether is on the fringe
of Federation space.  With luck, we will have a stealth field back in effect
before being detected.

The local war has escalated in intensity.  The shadowlings from Dark Aether
have launched an offensive.  The assault seems focused on a central network of
buildings atop a mountain:  a base, perhaps.  Strangely, this attack coincides
with a rise in planetary instability.  Perhaps these shadow creatures are using
a new weapon system.

The shadowlings must believe us to be foes, for they have hit our base numerous
times as well.  We are holding, but attrition is taking its taking its toll on

This dire turn of events may bear some good will.  One of our scouts in Dark
Aether saw a curious encounter.  The Dark Hunter attacked the one clad as Samus

forge an alliance with the Dark Hunter - an exchange, Phazon for the head of
our common enemy.

Metroid Cocoon

 - The Space Pirates transport young Tallon Metroids in an organic "cocoon"

infants for several cycles.  The creatures are normally content to remain in
the cocoon, but will emerge when they detect the presence of Phazon.

Damage from all weapons will harm them, but light-based weapons are superior.

Flying Ing Cache
----------------

 - The Flying Ing Cache was bred and trained to be a living storage unit.  It
employs a limited stealth field that renders it unseed to most enemies.  The
fact that the creature must be killed to obtain the object it stores is of
little consequence to the Ing.

Ingsphere will only release the item to its Ing masters.  The pocket can be
breached by destroying the Ingsphere, however.  This sometimes destroys the
item, but can be worth the risk.

Agon Bearerpod
--------------

 - The Agon Bearerpod is a hardy desert plantform used by the Luminoth to store
useful items and supplies.  Its tough epidermis can be destroyed with weapons.
It gathers trace amounts of moisture from the air and stores it in a number of
chambers throughout its body.  It can hold and process this moisture for weeks
if necessary.

Bloatsac

 - The humble Bloatsac contributes to its ecology by producing large amounts of
benevolent gasses.  It thrives in damp environments, though it can survive in
most climates and terrains.  The Bloatsac secretes a venomous sap over its
body.  Very few creatures can ingest the sap and survive, making it a useful
defense mechanism for the plant.

Blueroot Tree
-------------

 - The Blueroot tree is common on worlds with desert regions.  While an
elegant, attractive plant, the tree's leaves are highly toxic.  Few species can
ingest the leaves and live:  many of them (such as the Space Pirates) consider
the deadly Blueroot leaf a delicacy.

life in a desert environment.  Evidence of extensive mutation present,
suggesting radical bio-adjustments within the last centicycle.  Mutation source
is not natural:  plant strain was genetically engineered, possibly by the
Luminoth.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Plaza Access

----------------
Torvus Bearerpod
----------------

 - The Torvus Bearerpod grows around useful items.  The hard outer shell can be
shattered by weapon fire.  The Luminoth.  use the hardy plants to store
supplies for operations in the Torvus Bog.  They are resistant to the harsh
chemicals and diseases that run rampant in the swamp, and emit a deadly cloud
when destroyed.  This has discouraged their consumption by local animals.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Transport to Temple Grounds

------------------
Torvus Hanging Pod
------------------

 - The Luminoth placed these Pods throughout the Bog for use by their soldiers
during the war.  Though many have been raided since then, some may still
contain useful items left over from the war.

Dark Lift Crystal
-----------------

 - Luminoth lift platform will raise when Crystal is energized by light-based
weaponry.  Used by the Luminoth forces during their war.  Most still function,
despite periodic abuse from the Ing.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Hall of Stairs

----------------
Liftvine Crystal
----------------

 - Darkling plantform will grow in height when Crystal is energized by
light-based weaponry.  The Luminoth used these to navigate during their
campaigns on Dark Aether.  The Ing ignore the simple plant, as it is not a
source of nourishment or a weapon.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Brooding Ground

------------------
Light Lift Crystal
------------------

 - Luminoth lift platform will lower when Crystal is energized by dark
weaponry.  Used by the Luminoth forces during their war.  Most still function,

----------------
Energized Beacon
----------------

 - Energized Beacons provide better protection from Dark Aether's denizens.
Dark creatures are damaged by the energized field.  Some are killed on contact.
The extra protection is not unlimited, and must be recharged by the Light Beam
to remain in effect.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Feeding Pit

(Alternatively, you can get this scan anywhere there's a normal Beacon by
shooting the Beacon with a Light Beam shot.)

------------
Light Beacon
------------

 - Light Beacons must be energized by Beam weapon fire to function, and remain
charged for a limited time.  The Beacons were created when the Luminoth ran
short of Light Crystals during the war.  While simpler to make, the Beacons
were also unstable.  They had to be energized periodically, and could run out
of energy at critical moments.  Still, any protection was better than none for
the Luminoth warriors.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Portal Site

(Alternatively, pretty much any early Dark Aether room.  These are common.)

----------------
Nullified Beacon
----------------

 - Light Beacons, when covered with dark energy, cease to function for a brief
time.  Light energy can clear the Beacon of the dark energy.  Some dark
creatures will fire dark energy at Light Beacons to hinder or damage their
opponents.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Doomed Entry

(Alternatively, you can get this scan anywhere there's a normal Beacon by
shooting the Beacon with a Dark Beam shot.)

-------------
Light Crystal
-------------

 - Light Crystals provide protection from Dark Aether's atmosphere.  They can
be nullified by dark energy and supercharged by light energy.  They were
created by the Luminoth during their war with the Ing, and many still remain in
use.  Dark creatures despise the crystals:  some are injured or killed by the
field they create.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Portal Site

(Alternatively, you can get this scan in many Dark Aether rooms.  They are very
common, especially in the early part of the game.)

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

---------------------
Dark Sentinel Crystal
---------------------

 - The original Sentinel Crystals were durable, but they had their limits.  The
toxic nature of Dark Aether, coupled with constant attack from the Ing,
destroyed many of them.  The Luminoth responded with the Dark Sentinel Crystal.
Sheathed in dark energy, it is more resistant to the atmosphere if the Ing
homeworld - and the attacks of its denizens.

FOUND:  Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Dark Forgotten Bridge

----------------
Sentinel Crystal
----------------

 - During the war, the Luminoth used the Sentinel Crystals to monitor key areas
and installations.  They are incredibly durable, resisting all but the most
powerful of Ing attacks.  U-Mos still uses the remaining Sentinel Crystals to
keep a watch for Ing activity.

been designed for industrial use, then converted to a combat system in later
times.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Temple Grounds - GFMC Compound

-----------------
Spider Ball Track
-----------------

 - In Morph Ball mode, press and hold R when close to this type of surface.
Use [control stick] to move the Ball along the track.  Release R to disengage

-------

 - The Anhur class is a state-of-the-art warship, designed to police and defend
planetary systems.  This ship, the GFS Tyr, has been heavily damaged.  It
appears that the crew have dismantled parts of the Tyr as well, possibly for
use as makeshift defense systems.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Temple Grounds - GFMC Compound

------------
Pirate Skiff
------------

 - Plans for the Shrike were recently stolen from a GF lab by the Space
Pirates.  Production began immediately, and the fast-moving skiff is now a part
of most Pirate operations.  It is used primarily as a troop transport, taking a
fire team of troopers into action.  The Shrike is unarmed, relying on the
troops it carries for protection against hostile forces.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Biostorage Station

(Alternatively, you can find one of these on the wall in Light Aether - Agon
Wastes - Central Mining Station.)

---------------
Samus's Gunship
---------------

 - Your Hunter class gunship is one of a kind, its distinct hull lines marking
it to friend and foe alike.  Custom built for you by the Federated Shipyards at
Aliehs III, it contains a mobile energy recharge system and microfactories
designed to produce ammunition.  A sophisticated onboard computer stores
mission data collected in the field for future reference.

environment, dark energy attacks will still cause damage.

FOUND:  

----------
Light Suit
----------

 - The Light Suit is a fusion of Luminoth and Chozo battlesuit technology.

SAMUS'S NOTES:  The Suit is fully resistant to the effects of Dark Aether.

The suit is also invulnerable to the effects of dark water.  You can move
through it without being impeded.

The Light Suit is able to access the Luminoth energy transport system.  You can
ride these beams of energy between regions on Aether.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Great Temple - Main Energy Controller.  You can get this
from U-Mos as soon as you have returned the energy to the Agon, Torvus, and
Sanctuary Temples.

----------
Varia Suit
----------

 - The Varia Suit is an advanced Chozo exoskeleton modified for use by Samus
Aran.

SAMUS'S NOTES:  The Varia Suit produces life-support functions and is well
shielded from attack.

The modular nature of the Varia Suit allows for the addition of weapons,
Visors, and other gear as needed.

The Varia Suit's shielding loses energy with each hit:  collect energy when
possible to keep the shielding charged.

This list contains all of the Log Book entries that you can permanently miss in
this game.  I THINK IT DOES, anyway.

If I have an item listed that you can always scan in some obscure location or
something, please let me know as soon as possible.

If I've left something off the list, please notify me as soon as possible.

I've arranged these in the order you would encounter them if you were following
my walkthrough.  It should be fairly close to the order you'd encounter them in
other walkthroughs too.  Note that some of them appear in more locations than
I've listed.  I only listed the first location you encounter them for most of
the entries.

---------------
Samus's Gunship
---------------

 - This entry will change during the mission, so scan it right when the game
starts to avoid causing yourself any unwanted grief.

FOUND:  Temple Grounds - Landing Site

--------------
GF Gate MK VII
--------------

 - I argued with a friend over this one for about an hour... After that, we
agreed it should be listed here.  If, for WHATEVER STUPID REASON, you destroy
these gates before scanning them, you will not be able to scan them again.

FOUND:  Temple Grounds - Dynamo Chamber

--------------------
Growler Class Turret

 - Make sure you scan one of these as soon as possible in Trooper Security
Station, since they will disappear early in the game.

FOUND:  Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Trooper Security Station

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

 - Scan the first one of these in GFMC Compound before you scan the terminal to
activate it.  If you somehow manage to actiavate all of them without scanning
one first, you're out of luck.

FOUND:  Temple Grounds - GFMC Compound

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

Sanctuary when you first enter it.  Scan it right after the battle starts to

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

 - Scan this the first time you're in Duelling Range, since they vanish shortly
after that.

FOUND:  Dark Agon Wastes - Judgment Pit

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

Dark Samus 1
------------

 - Duh, a boss fight.  Make sure you scan her.

FOUND:  Agon Wastes - Main Reactor

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

 - Scan it as soon as you can when you fight it.

FOUND:  Dark Torvus Bog - Dark Torvus Arena

you have to find.  After you destroy those nine, there will be no more.

spawn again.)

Posted the entire walkthrough for a perfect file, the beam ammo list, the power
bomb list, the energy tank list, and part of the log book section.  I'm aware
there are flaws in this version of the guide, and I'm hoping some of the people
reading it will help me with corrections and suggestions.
-------------------
December 3rd, 2004:
-------------------
Added the complete missile expansion section and a large portion of the Log
Book section.  Fixed several errors I found along the way.
-------------------
December 8th, 2004:
-------------------
Fixed my stupid suggestions for shortcuts in getting a Sky Temple Key and a
Power Bomb Expansion after a few people had problems.  Added a section at the
beginning of the guide for the various temple keys, and corrected a bunch of
small typing errors.  Copied down a bunch of the little entry things from the
game in the Log Book section.  There are still a ton of entries to copy, but I
have finals starting tomorrow morning, so it will still be quite some time
before I finish them all.
--------------------
December 12th, 2004:
--------------------
Added a large section of the Log Book entries.  Also fixed several spelling
errors and missing format pieces.
--------------------
December 14th, 2004:
--------------------
Completed the Log Book section, started the Inventory section, and corrected a
few more small errors I found in the process.
--------------------
December 16th, 2004:
--------------------
Added quite a bit to the Inventory section, corrected some additional typing
errors, and added in some other forms of contact information.  (I originally
left my AIM and Email out due to finals.  I didn't have the time to deal with
them, but now I do, so by all means, feel free to IM/Email me if you need help
or have a comment/suggestion/complaint.)
--------------------
December 17th, 2004:
--------------------
Finished the Inventory section and fixed some small errors.
--------------------
December 21st, 2004:
--------------------
More minor typing corrections and a few clarifications added.  Also added a
section with the locations of all the expansions and Log Book entries without
the specific directions for people to use if they want a checklist or just want
to figure out how to get each one on their own.
------------------
January 1st, 2005:
------------------
Added a Missable Scans list, which is what a lot of people call a "Red Entry"
list.  Also corrected and clarified a few things due to emails and IMs I got
from people having trouble with a few sections.
------------------
January 7th, 2005:
------------------
Some minor corrections and a few clarifications (like the portal in Forgotten
Bridge where tons of players had problems).
-------------------
January 27th, 2005:
-------------------
Minor adjustments.  Also altered the copyright info.  I'd be cleaning more of
this guide up, but I'm busy with a few other current projects, so it could be
quite some time before I get around to pollishing this one.
--------------------
February 14th, 2005:
--------------------
A few tiny corrections I noticed while answering emails.
