                                 ~Introduction~
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hello there! I'm Deathborn 668 on the message boards, and this is my FAQ for
    Metroid Prime 2:Echoes. This game kicks so much major ass, I had to write an 
    FAQ for it. This FAQ simply contains all of the Logbook Scans, their Logbook
    descriptions, what the enemy looks like, its attacks, and how to kill it. So
    basically, this is much more than just an ordinary Logbook FAQ. Its a combo 
    of several different FAQ's mashed into 1 really for your own use. Do's and 
    Don'ts of my FAQ:
    DO:
    -Use this for refrence
    -Print it out
    -Give this to other people FOR NO CHARGE
    
    DON'T:
    -Plagirize with no credit
    -Call this your won work
    -Sell this for profit
    
    ONLY the following sites are allowed to use my FAQ. Other sites need my     
    permission first:

                              ~Part I-Intro to the FAQ~
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This FAQ is basically just refrence for anyone who wishes to use it. I     
    include everything in the Logbook, with descriptions on what they look like 
    and tips on how to beat them, and especially where they are found. The second
    section of my FAQ contains all of the items in the game, and their         
    descriptions on where they are found and what they do (Like Boost Ball, etc.)
    I don't do the Missile Expansions coverage. That's not what this FAQ is for.
    Hope you enjoy it :)

                              ~Section I-Logbook Scans~
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Finally! The moment has finally come to go into precise detail about        
    literally everything in the Logbook! Yes, the amount of crap you need to Scan
    to reach 100% is appalling, but it isn't THAT bad....
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             ~Subsection I-Creature Scans~
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Creature scans make up the majority of the Logbook. Actually, around 65% of 
    it. That's a lotta scans all put into 1 little package don't you think? I'll
    list the Enemies, where they are found, the Scan info, and how they can be 
    defeated. Enemies are pretty much..anything that moves. If it can actually
    cause at least 1 damage, its an enemy (Except stuff like falling off of     
    ledges...that's not an enemy). 
    
    ================================
    Aether-Aquatic-Small Aquatic
    ================================
    Hydlings
    Found:Various rooms underwater, travel in large groups. Found in Hydrochamber
    Access and a few other locations.
    How to Defeat:1 simple Power Beam kills them. I use them with Dark and Light
    Beams to quickly get back a ton of Ammo. they are useful enemies really.
    Appearence:Hydlings appear in large groups underwater, like small tiny brown
    floating objects.
    Scan Info: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, 
    which with their sharp teeth can also pierce metal.
    
    Bloggling
    Found:In Hydrodynamo Station after releasing the first lock. Also in Training
    Chamber until all locks have been released.
    How to Defeat:Unlike other Bloggs, they won't try to ram you often. Even so,
    its pretty weak. About 5 Power Beam shots on their tail (Their mouth is     
    invulnerable) will kill them. 
    Appearence:They are small Blogg's, green in color
    Scan Info:Young Bloggs are weaker than their parents, but still violent.    
    Their powerful jaws have yet to form, and they lack the defense abilities 
    found in adult Bloggs. They rely on speed and agility for protection if     
    attacked. Without the protection of their elders, they are still vulnerable.
    
    ================================
    Aether-Aquatic-Large Aquatic
    ================================
    Blogg
    Found:Hydrodynamo Station before activating any of the locks. Transport to 
    Sanctuary in Torvus Bog also has 1 Blogg. The farther you go in the game the
    less Bloggs appear.
    How to Defeat:Wait for it to charge at you, and stand still and face it.    
    Right before hitting you it will open its mouth. Pop a Missile into it to   
    kill the Blogg.
    Appearence:Big and black, with a large mouth cavity area. Pretty obvious   
    underwater.
    Scan Info:The Blogg uses speed and agility to close in on prey. It will     
    batter foes with a ramming attack, then use its 3 tooth-filled maws to finish
    the job. Bloggs have a weak spot inside their mouth:the rest of their bodies
    are covered with a thick damage-resitant hide.
    
    Alpha Blogg
    Found:Main Hydrochamber Access-he can be scanned inside his "cage". Lastly in
    Main Hydrochamber during the actual fight with him. He's a 1-time scan, so be
    sure to get him!
    How to Defeat:Same as all Bloggs. He attacks the same as all Bloggs. He also 
    uses a Sonic Bubble attack too. Use Super Missiles for maximum damage.     
    Release them as he is moving back before ramming you so they will hurt him. 
    He damage you a lot too, so have the 5 max Energy Tanks at that time for the
    easiest possible time.
    Appearence:Simply a huge Blogg. Impossible to miss really because its a Boss
    battle with a health bar....
    Scan Info:The Alpha Blogg is the largest and strongest of its pack. It can 
    fire potent sonic stun blasts in battlee. The blasts will disrupt your Visor
    and weapon systems if they hit you. Its 3 titanic maws are potent weapons. 
    Target the creature's mouth area to inflict damage upon to it.
    
    ================================
    Aether-Flying-Small Flyers
    ================================
    Sandbats
    Found:All over Agon Wastes, but can really only be scanned in Mining Station
    A.
    How to Defeat:Several Power Beam shots
    Appearence:Small, tan colored bats flying around in swarms above ground
    Scan Info:Sandbats are small flyers. They travel in packs for safety, though 
    they are predators in nature. Failing to find food as a group, Sandbats will
    often enter a feeding frenzy and attack one another in search of sustenance.
    
    Lightflyer
    Found:Forgotten Bridge, and in Transport to Temple Grounds A.
    How to Defeat:1 Charge Beam shot kills them.
    Appearnce:Mainly a small ball of yellow light energy, shooting electricty at
    you.
    Scan Info: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.
    
    Lumite
    Found:Transport Access to Temple Ground within Agon Wastes, and in various 
    locations in Dark Agon Wastes. (They are invisible unless flying in Dark   
    Agon Wastes however)
    How to Defeat:Several Power Beam shots when visible.
    Appearence:Small brown creatures that usually cling to walls, shooting purple
    goop at you.
    Scan Info: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.
    
    War Wasp
    Found:Many rooms in Temple Grounds.
    How to Defeat:Several Power Beam shots, or 1 shot from any other beam
    Appearence:A small blue wasp, comes out of an orange War Wasp Hive nearby,
    also makes easily distinguished buzzing noises.
    Scan Info:The War Wasp rarely strays away from its hive while it is pursuing
    an immediate threat. It attacks with no regard for its own survival, dive  
    bombing into its enemy with stinger extended. Fast working toxins from the
    stinger can incapcitate most small organisms. If it battles foes at range, 
    it will fire blasts of potent energy.
    
    ================================
    Aether-Flying-Large Flyers
    ================================
    Shriekers
    Found:In Torvus Bog. You'll fist meet them at Great Bridge, but they      
    dissappear after a while. they can then be found at Torvus Temple
    How to Defeat:2 Missiles, or 2 Charge Beam shots
    Appearence:A small green bat. It is invisible, except when attacking. The 
    Echo Visor can locate it.
    Scan Info:A cousin to the Shredder, the Shrieker waits for prey half-buried
    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.
    
    Shriekbat
    Found:Many hallways around Torvus Bog
    How to Defeat:Several Power Beam attacks, or let them hit a wall where they 
    self implode
    Appearence:Small white-purple bats hanging on ceilings
    Scan Info: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 terratorial, they dive-bomb anything that 
    wanders near. This attack is fatal for the Shriekbat, as the impact sets off
    a discharge of thermal energy.
    
    Shredder
    Found:Torvus Lagoon first time around, then they dissappear (WARNING:I think
    these are 1 time scans. I haven't located them anywhere else once they     
    dissappear. Its best to scan them ASAP just to be sure.)
    How to Defeat:Several Missiles or Charge Beam shots
    Appearence:Small purple sack with propellers on head. Sack inflates when   
    approaching target
    Scan Info:The Shredder spends most of its life in the earth. When agitated, 
    it will spring from the ground, then begin to fly towards its foe. Should it
    reach its target, the Shredder will explode with considerable force,      
    releasing a cloud of thorns as it does. Shredders are resiliant, but can be
    eliminated with concentrated weapon fire.            
    
    ================================
    Aether-Ground-Tunnel Prowlers
    ================================
    Pillbug
    Found:Can only be scanned in Portal Terminal in Agon Wastes BEFORE first   
    activating the portal there. If you miss it, you can scan one on the right 
    side of Dynamo Access, after you beat the Spider Guardian.
    How to Defeat:Place a Bomb. When it explodes, if the Pillbug is within its
    radius, the Pillbug will fall to the ground. Place 3 Bombs on its belly to
    kill it.
    Appearence:Small, short blue bug with big whiskers. Turns into a rolling ball
    when enemies nearby.
    Scan Info: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 paths as they search for food. A Pillbug cam 
    be jarred loose from a surface with a concussive blast:doing so reveals its
    vulnerable belly.
    
    Worker Splinter
    Found:Very first few rooms past the Landing Site. They are always there.
    How to Defeat:A whopping 1 Power Beam shot!
    Appearence:A translucent white Splinter
    Scan Info:The Worker Splinter is bred for service, not for combat. It spends
    its time collecting foodstuffs and raw material for the Hive. A layer of    
    mucus helps to protect the creature from the toxins and chemicals it works
    with. They can generate a sturdy pliable webbling useful in travel throughout
    the Hive.                                                                  
    
    ================================
    Aether-Ground-Surface Prowlers
    ================================
    Green Kralee
    Found:Transport to Agon Wastes Access, and other various rooms around Temple
    Ground
    How to Defeat:Several Power Beam shots
    Appearence:A small beatle with a green crystal on its back
    Scan Info:A cousin to the dimensional shifting Kralee, the Green Kralee     
    spends most of its days roaming in search of food. A generic defect prevents
    its back crystal from harnessing energy and opening warp portals. It is    
    doubtful the Green Kralee misses this ability.
    
    Brizgee
    Found:Mining Station A in Agon Wastes
    How to Defeat:Use a Missile to make it angry, then a Charge Beam
    Appearence:A thin, small red shelled crap pacing around in circles
    Scan Info:The Brizgee's tail ends in a venomous barb, which it conceals     
    underneath a hard-packed layer of fused sand. A series of sharpened ridges  
    along its body discouages most predators:those foolish enough to harass the 
    Brizgee are quickly introduced to its deadly stinger.
    
    Kralee
    Found:Mining Station B in Agon Wastes
    How to Defeat:Several Power Beam shots
    Appearence:Just like a Green Kralee, only with a red crystal 
    Scan Info: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.                                                                   
    
    Seedburster
    Found:Training Chamber Access
    How to Defeat:Either 1 Power Beam shot, or wait for them to suicide
    Appearence:Small purple plants moving rapidly in groups upon ceilings
    Scan Info: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 dangerous projectile. These seeds do not live to fruitation, but help
    protect the Seedburster pack from attacks.
    
    Krocuss
    Found:Torvus Grove Access
    How to Defeat:Get behind it and wait for its back flaps to open, then pop a 
    Charge Beam shot into it to kill him
    Appearence:Small green things with several claws infront of them, and flaps 
    on their backs
    Scan Info: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 toxic-absorbing gills:
    few weapons can penetrate the creature's shell.
    
    Lightbringer
    Found:1 room before facing the Jump Guardian. Its said he's a 1 time Scan   
    only, but his scan desciption kinda makes you think otherwise.
    How to Defeat:1 Annihalator Beam shot. This is un-confirmed, but his Scan  
    suggests that.
    Appearence:A small white crystal that can move
    Scan Info:Lightbringers were created by the Luminoth for use in their war  
    with the Ing. The crystalline creature generates 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.                                                                   
    
    ================================
    Aether-Ground-Predators
    ================================
    Sandigger
    Found:Mining Station A
    How to Defeat:1 Charge Beam to each of its heads
    Appearence:Simply a purple colored worm with 2 heads
    Scan Info: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 digestive process. Its hide is very durable and resistant to weapon fire:
    only its exposed eyes can be damaged.
    
    Alpha Splinter
    Found:Great Temple (1 time scan!!!)
    How to Defeat:Can't be defeated, after enough damage the Ing posses him.    
    In order to activate that, around 20 missiles, or 15 Charge Beam shots
    Appearence:An oversized brown Splinter
    Scan Info: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. 
    
    Grenchlers
    Found:Forgotten Bridge in Torvus Bog
    How to Defeat:Blast their tails with several Super Missiles to destroy it, 
    leaving a vulnerable skin section. A few Missiles in there kills the beast.
    Appearence:A kinda large creature (Size of a Baby Sheegoth, remember?) with 
    huge teeth, and a mighty roar
    Scan Info:The amiphibious 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 generic defect makes
    the shell on their back susceptable to explosive blasts. Remove the shell to
    expose a vulnerable nerve center, then target it to eliminate the creature. 
    
    Alpha Sandigger
    Found:Agon Temple (1 time scan!!!)
    How to Defeat:Wait 5 seconds for the Ing to posses it >_>
    Appearence:Looks EXACTLY like a normal Sandigger. Quickly scan it before it 
    gets possesed into the Bomb Guardian!
    Scan Info: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.
    
    Sporb
    Found:Torvus Plaza and Underground Tunnel, both in Torvus Bog
    How to Defeat:Lure the actual head of the plant out by getting in its view
    in Morph Ball form, then unleash several Charge Beam shots upon it.
    Appearence:A strange sack attached to some walls. The actual head is nothing
    but a stem and 4 leaves.
    Scan Info:The hanging Sporb sits patiently until a potential meal is       
    detected. A burst of poisoned needles is the Sporb's primamry means of     
    attack. It can also extend its body over short distances, gripping small   
    targets with its powerful jaws. Sporbs wither when exposed to dark energy, 
    making them vulnerable to other weapon systems.
    
    Splinter
    Found:All over Temple Grounds
    How to Defeat:1 Charge Beam shot
    Appearence:A small tan colored bug that enjoys ramming you!
    Scan Info:When it isn't hunting, a Splinter will secrete a protecture      
    cocoon around itself and enter a state of hybernation. Localized seimic    
    disturbences will awake the Splinter, triggering a state of blood frenzy in 
    the process. While in this state, a Splinter emits phermones that triggers 
    frenzy in all nearby Splinters. Disturbing a pack of sleeping Splinter is   
    not advisable.
    
    ================================
    Aether-Mechanoids-Small
    ================================
    Harmony Class Drone
    Found:Transport Access C in Great Temple
    How to Defeat:1 Charge Beam
    Appearence:Small spheres of blue energy with several yellow bombs on the 
    outside of it. It is attracted to your Charge Beam.
    Scan Info:The Luminoth desgined the Harmony units to be free-roaming,       
    independant cleaning units. They use focused energy beams and kinetic pulses
    to perform their duties. Unfortunately, they now consider all living things 
    filth that must be cleansed from the world.
    
    Mechlops
    Found:1 room past Dynamo Access, under the floor in that room
    How to Defeat:Lay a Bomb near one, and it'll suck it up, then it'll explode
    Appearence:A small black moving unit with 3 claws infront of it
    Scan Info:The Luminoth tried to domesticate and train a number of Triclops 
    for use in the war, but failed. Undaunted, they created mechanical versions 
    of the hurdy creatures to use in battle. The few Mechlops that remain now   
    serve the mechanoids, turning their potent jaws and earthmoving power against
    their former masters.
    
    Diligence Class Drone
    Found:Many, many rooms over Sanctuary Fortress
    How to Defeat:1 Dark Beam shot
    Appearence:Exactly like a Harmony Class Drone unit, only pink with blue    
    colored bombs on the side. It shoots 3 lasers at different directions at all
    times. He simply moves back and forth in tunnels they reside, and move super
    fast when a Charge Beam is active.
    Scan Info:The Diligence 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 their duty. Their energy construct nature makes them       
    invulnerable to most attacks, but dark energy can disrupt them.
    
    Serenity Class Drone
    Found:Fortress Entrance Hall, amoung the right wall, are thousands of these
    How to Defeat:1 Power Beam shot, although they aren't a threat
    Appearence:Small red robots moving with a group of hundreds of these amoung 
    the aforementioned wall
    Scan Info:The Serenity drones have not gone rouge. 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.         
    
    Rezbit
    Found:VERY often through Sanctuary Fortress, easily found in Reactor Core
    How to Defeat:Either the long way, which is many Super Missiles, or 1 Charge
    Dark Beam shot, followed by a Missile when he's frozen makes him dead
    Appearence:3 small black spiked balls revolving around many orange rectangles
    Scan Info:The Rezbit, through small, is a tough opponent. Its weapon system 
    is potent, capable of firing bursts or beams at targets. A barrier sheild   
    blocks oncoming attacks, It can even 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.
    Additional Notes:The Rezbit becomes impossible to Lock-on when all of the 
    orange rectangles dissappear, leaving it in its "energy state". At this     
    point, run like hell away from it. It will, several seconds later, send a   
    virus to you if your within its radius, that being around 20 feet. If this  
    virus hits you, you need to immideately push R+L+B to re-boot your Power    
    Suit, otherwise, your visor will be extremly distorted, and you see         
    everything frame by frame per second, and tons of alien text rise up your   
    screen. If your in Morph Ball Mode when the virus hits, you can't go back to
    normal form, lay Bombs, or use the Spider Ball until you clear the virus.   
    Also, suiciding by jumping/rolling off a nearby ledge instantly clears the  
    virus (Although its a stupid way of clearing it.). Lastly, you can't attack 
    if the virus hits.
    
    Octopede
    Found:Transport to Torvus Bog Access in Sanctuary Fortress
    How to Defeat:Several Power Beam shots knock off its seprate pieces, which 
    will proceed to roll around a little then self-destruct. Avoid that.
    Appearence:4 small spiky orange circles all connected circling around walls.
    If another Octopede is nearby, they form an electrical field that cannot be
    passed unless they are destroyed.
    Scan Info:The Octopede were created to deilever messages to Luminoth       
    citizens. They now fellow their routes in the service of other rouge        
    mechanoids. The units were designed to self-destruct if attacked, and will  
    explode with enough force to cause damage.

    Viligence Class Turret
    Found:Central Mining Station (1 Time Scan!!). This can ONLY be scanned when 
    the 2 Space Pirates take command of them. If destroyed, they can never be   
    scanned again.
    How to Defeat:Many Missiles, or stand very close below them and they will 
    blow themselves up (lol)
    Appearence:A large green cannon that fires green plasma blasts
    Scan Info:the "Viligence" 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 Viligence gunner is considered a mark of distinction.
    Additional Notes:You can later in the game hop into the Viligence hologram 
    and actually operate the cannon! The cannon has its own life bar, and if    
    destroyed will automatically force you out. The hologram will reappear a few
    seconds later. You can also push B to manually disengage operating the     
    cannon.                                                                   
    
    Luminoth Turret
    Found:Sand Processing in Agon Wastes
    How to Defeat:1 Charge Beam or Missile
    Appearence:A small turret that shoots 2 yellow powerful beams at you
    Scan Info:As the number of Luminoth 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.                      
    
    Caretaker Class Drone
    Found:Main Research (1 Time Scan!). NOTE:This scan, however, is available at
    any time BEFORE the battle with it. It can be scanned through the giant glass
    shaft in Main Research.
    How to Defeat:Ride around on the Spiderball Tracks until it releases a red  
    sensor for several seconds. Boost Ball through it. Once 3 sensors are       
    destoyed, it will occasionally drop down the main sensor in the middle of the
    machine for a brief second. Boost through it to move to the next level. The
    Drone is destoyed after 3 rounds.
    Scan Info:The Caretaker drone was designed to protect and maintain and      
    experimental energy chamber. It uses electrically charged limbs to perform  
    its duties. The drone requires sensor updates to fight:a vulnerable detection
    until will extend periodically to search for targets. Destroying this unit 
    would weaken its combat ability.                                            
    
    Growler Class Turret
    Found:Transport to Sanctuary Access in Temple Grounds
    How to Defeat:Several Super Missiles
    Appearence:Like the Luminoth turret, only it shoots VERY powerful blue     
    blasts.
    Scan Info:The GM-42 "Growler" Class Turret is a dated design, though still 
    quite effective as a point-defense system. It is lightly armored. Several  
    copies of the system exist, including the Space Pirate "Humility" Class    
    automated turret.                                                      
    
    Humility Class Turret
    Found:All over the Space Pirate base in Agon Wastes
    How to Defeat:1 Charge Beam
    Appearence:A small turret hanging out of the wall
    Scan Info:The Space Pirates captured Federation "Growler" turrets, but found
    the cannon unit inadequate. They replaced the Growler's weapon with a       
    powerful galvanic acclerator 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.

    Aether-Mechanoids-Large
    ================================
    Ingsmasher
    Found:Hall of Combat Mastery (1 Time Scan!!) Note:He technically is a 1TC. 
    If you kill them all they will never come back. If you run from them when 
    they are active, they won't dissappear. Its an obvious scan though-they are
    really really big.
    How to Defeat:When in normal colors use Super Missiles, while white use the 
    Dark Beam, and while purple use Light Beam. Annihaltor Beam works on all    
    forms.                                            
    Appearence:A large metallic warrior with 2 large balls cupped in its hands
    Scan Info:Designed to fight alongside the Luminoth, the Ingsmasher seeks to
    destroy them. in close combat, it smashes its energized fists into the earth
    to send out powerful shockwaves, then pulverizes immobile prey. It will fire
    salves of missiles at long-distance quarry. It uses an energy sheild in    
    battle that can be adjusted to protect against a variety of beam weapons.   
    The sheild can be overloaded by opposite-polarity beams, however, damaging 
    the Ingsmasher in the process.
    
    Watchdrone
    Found:Dungeon in Dark Torvus Bog, under the dark water
    How to Defeat:Invulnerable. However, they can be shifted out of place when 
    a Light Beacon is active
    Appearence:A small black creature with 4 legs
    Scan Info: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 indestructable, 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 orginal resting site.
    
    Mekenobite
    Found:Sanctuary Temple after getting the Colbalt Translator
    How to Defeat:Use a Seeker Missile on its 2 legs
    Appearence:A 2 legged creature hanging off the top of ceilings
    Scan Info:The Luminoth created the Mekenobites 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     
    towards its target with a magnetism accelerator. It can only be dislodged by
    simsimultaneous explosive blasts. Mekenobites self-destruct once they are 
    heavily damaged.                                                        
    
    Quad MB
    Found:Main Research, as well as all over Sanctuary Fortress.
    How to Defeat:Wait until it starts spinning, then Boost Ball into it.
    Appearence:A small robot with 4 legs
    Scan Info:A Quad is formed of two components:the quadruped Main Body and the
    flying Command Module. The units can function independantly, 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 vulenerable to concussive blasts.     
    
    Quad CM
    Found:Same as Quad MB
    How to Defeat:Super Missiles when normal, Light Beam when purple, Dark Beam
    when white. Can ONLY be destroyed when detached from the Main Body.
    Appearence:A small robotic head.
    Scan Info:A Quad is formed of two components:the quadruped Main Body and the
    flying Command Module. The units can function independantly, or linked     
    together, as the need arises. The Command Module relies on ranged beams     
    weapon attacks. It can generate a powerful beam sheild to protect itself. 
    Opposite-polarity beams can pentrate this field, however.                  
    
    ================================
    Dark Aether-Ing
    ================================
    Ingstorm
    Found:All over Sky Temple Grounds
    How to Defeat:Morph Ball Mode, wait for them to ram you and they die. But 
    they just reproduce in a never ending supply v_v
    Appearence:Think of a small purply and red dot. Now, multiply that by a     
    mliion and think of them all flying around, dealing 60 damage per second if
    you don't have the Light Suit.
    Scan Info:The Ingstorm is collective swarm of tiny Ing. When banded together,
    they can emit destructive energy that, over time, can break down even the   
    most duable of alloys.                                                   
    
    Inglet
    Found:All over Dark Aether
    How to Defeat:1 Charge Beam
    Appearence:A small neck and mouth is all the Inglet is composed of. Can also
    resort to a puddle form like most Ing can.
    Scan Info: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 if possible.                                      
    
    Warrior Ing
    Found:All over Dark Aether
    How to Defeat:A ton of Charge Beams, or Missiles, or several Charged Light 
    Beam shots
    Appearence:EXTREMELY hard to explain. But also has a large puddle form, so   
    look for that.
    Scan Info:Warrior Ing are challenging foes. They can render themselves into
    a amorphous puddles and move over most terrain, including walls. Warrior    
    Ing's can turn their bodies into dangerous 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 theri enemies. Their only real weakness is bright, pure    
    light, which they hate and fear.
    
    Ing Larva Swarm
    Found:Hive Entrance Hall
    How to Defeat:1 Power Beam shot, or wait for them to explode
    Appearence:A small black dot with a Warrior Ing's eyes
    Scan Info: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.                         
    
    Darkling Tentacle
    Found:In small, cramped hallways throughout Dark Aether
    How to Defeat:Un-killable. However, in will contract into the wall if       
    anything hits it.                                
    Appearence:A long grey tentacle
    Scan Info:Some darklings can open dimensional portals at will. They will 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.                              
    
    Hunter Ing
    Found:Easily found in Poisoned Bog
    How to Defeat:Its insane to waste time trying to kill them, just run from   
    them                  
    Appearence:A small red blob with several tentacles
    Scan Info: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 targets with ease. Hunter Ing can generate long, deadly tentacles,   
    which they use with great effect in battle. Cunning and relentling, the     
    Hunter Ing will seize their prey or die.

    Dark Aether-Guardians-Quadraxis
    ================================
    Quadraxis
    Found:Dark Sanctuary Temple. Missing a 100 foot tall robot is a LITTLE hard
    to miss.....
    How to Defeat:This is the first of 3 stages of the battle. In this stage you
    need to destroy his 4 knee-caps. They are ONLY vulnerable when flashing     
    blue.                              
    Appearence:Think of a Quad. Now, increase his size 100 times. There you go.
    Scan Info:The Quadraxis unit went rogue and entered the service of the Ing. 
    Its primary weapon system fires destructive matter-antimatter blasts. It   
    uses a powerful missile system battery for long distance attacks. The      
    Quadraxis is increadibly durable, and well armed, but its leg and foot joints
    are vulnerable. Damaging these joints will eventually render it immobile.   
    
    Damaged Quadraxis
    Found:Dark Sanctuary Temple. The main body of the Quadraxis unit, is only   
    scannable after destroying all 4 leg joints and his Command Module deteaches.
    How to Defeat:This is phase 2 of 3 in the Quadraxis battle. Slap on your Echo
    Visor to find an antennae on the Main Body. Destroy it by whatever means    
    possible. This antennae was actually transmitting commands to the Command   
    Module (AKA, the Quadraxis Head). Once destroyed, keep the Echo Visor on and
    look for the Command Module. There are 3 antennae's on it. Destroy 1 when the
    Command Module is stunned and unable to recieve commands. Repeat until all  
    are destroyed to move to phase 3. WARNING:WHILE THE HEAD MODULE IS STUNNED IS
    A NEW SCAN!!!
    Appearence:The Quadraxis, only without the head lying on the ground
    Scan Info: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.                                              
    
    Sheilded Head Module
    Found:Dark Sanctuary Temple, during phase 2 of the Quadraxis battle. Its the
    non-stunned floatng Head Module.
    How to Defeat:Invulnerable until sonic-transmitter on Main Body is          
    destroyed, then a new scan appears for the Head Module.
    Appearence:The floating Head Module of the Quadraxis
    Scan Info:The Head Module of the Quadraxis is highly mobile and well armed.
    It is sheilded by an impervious force field. Tactical commands are sent to 
    this module from the crippled main body:server the link to impair the Head
    Module's combat ability.                    
    
    Final Head Module
    Found:Dark Sanctuary Temple, during the final phase. Its the Quadraxis Head 
    Module with its head glass broken off, revealing a Spider Ball Track.
    How to Defeat:Stun him with a Super Missile to make him slowly revolve around
    to room for about 35 seconds. Quickly Spider Ball up one of the Damaged    
    Quadraxis legs, and prepare a Boost. When the Head Module floats infront of
    you, Boost onto it, and keep holding R. The Head Module has a Spider Ball   
    surface on it as well. Get into one of the 2 Bomb Slots on its head and place
    a Bomb to damage it. Repeat for the second Bomb Slot to finally destroy the 
    Quadraxis unit.                                               
    Appearence:Same Head Module, only with every antennae destroyed on him
    Scan Info:Module has lost its tactical link to the main body. Two points of
    structual weakness have been detected 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.                   
    
    Stunned Head Module
    Found:Dark Sanctuary Temple, phase 2 of the battle, after destroying the   
    Main Body's antennae.
    How to Defeat:With the Echo Visor on, after destroying the Main Body antennae
    he will have 3 antennae's on him all un-accepting transmissions. Destroy    
    these now.             
    Appearence:The Head Module after destroying the Main Body antennae
    Scan Info:Head Module is unable to recieve tactical data. Force field      
    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.

    Dark Aether-Guardians-Sub Guardians
    ================================
    Bomb Guardian
    Found:Agon Temple
    How to Defeat:Shoot it in the pink tail over and over again until it rears 
    its head up in pain. Use a Charge Beam on its head for the most effectiveness
    Appearence:A darkling Sandigger with a pink glowing tail
    Scan Info:This darkling Sandigger has absorbed the ability to generate     
    Morph Ball Bombs. It can throw Bombs with considerable accuaracy, and      
    frequenly lay 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 target.             
    
    Jump Guardian
    Found:Battlefield in Dark Agon Wastes
    How to Defeat:Many Missiles and Charge Beams
    Appearence:A Warrior Ing that looks like.....a Warrior Ing o_O
    Scan Info: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 shcokwaves of dark energy and
    will sheath itself in a potent force field to protect itself. It cannot     
    maintain this sheild indefinitely:concentrate weapon fire when sheild is    
    down.                                    
    
    Boost Guardian
    Found:Dark Torvus Arena (Sadly....NOBODY ever wants to fight him....)
    How to Kill:YAY! Your gonna die MANY times before you figure out a good plan!
    If you need one, just use charged Light Beam shots over and over again...
    Appearence:If you play Pokemon, this Warrior Ing has a strange resemblence 
    to Sceptile.
    Scan Info:This Warrior Ing has absorbed the power of the Boost Ball. It can 
    boost-blast towards its enemies, using its body as a potent weapon. When its
    not in solid form, engaging it in Morph Ball Mode may provide better attack
    oppertunities.                                        
    
    Grapple Guardian
    Found:Sacrificial Chamber
    How to Kill:Get its Grapple Beam to attach to magnetic pole, then run behind
    it and unleash fury on its tail
    Appearence:A really big Grenchler with a blue horn.
    Scan Info: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.
    Additional Notes:Its impossible to "anger" it until this beast is scanned, as
    his eye "technically" doesn't exist until its been done. Also, there is no 
    Special Attack of his, so don't panic.
    
    Spider Guardian
    Found:Dynamo Access (WARNING:1 TME SCAN! HE CAN ONLY BE SCANNED THROUGH HIS 
    SMALL GLASS CHAMBER BEFORE BEGINNING THE BATTLE!
    How to Kill:Bomb him a total of 4 times to make his "halo" around him green,
    which activates the Bomb Slot in the area. Bomb it to change the path of the
    Spider Guardian, who'll move into an electrical outlet. Repeat this for all 
    4 area. The final area has 3 Bomb slots, which will have to be activated in
    order.
    Appearence:A Pillbug
    Scan Info:This darkling Pillbug has absorbed the power of the Spider Ball.  
    It can travel across magnetically charged surfaces at will. The creature    
    seems to have a connection to the local energy systems. Aggrivating it may
    cause disruption to the system.                                   
    
    Power Bomb Guardian
    Found:Underchamber
    How to Kill:Activate the 4 Bomb Slots around the room
    Appearence:A Sporb that can spew an endless amount of Power Bomb (That's   
    not fair!!!)
    Scan Info:This darkling Sporb has absorbed the ability to generate Power   
    Bombs. It can fire these dangerous weapons instead of the venoumous needles
    it usually shoots. The energies of the Power Bomb weapon hae made it all but
    invulnerable. Tremendous kinetic energy damage will override its          
    protective field, however.        
    
    ================================
    Dark Aether-Guardians-Amorbis
    ================================
    Amorbis 1
    Found:Dark Agon Temple during the phases the Amorbis('s) are jumping in and
    out of the ground.
    How to Kill:Unkillable at this point. Use Missiles and Power Beam shots     
    quickly to destroy its outer shell
    Appearence:An ugly, really really ugly black worm. Its a boss, can't be     
    missed unless your blind!
    Scan Info:The enourmous Amorbis can move through solid rock and earth with  
    ease, and can sense the location of surface level prey deep within the      
    ground. They will attempt to ram any target the can find in their domain.  
    They are vulnerable to all forms of weapon firem but are incredibly strong 
    and resistant to pain.                                   
    
    Amorbis 2
    Found:Dark Agon Temple, when the Amorbis attaches itself to the Dark Sphere 
    in the middle of the Temple.
    How to Kill:Use a Charged Light Beam shot on its face plate, which should   
    destroy it. It will then lie on the ground, mouth open, and begin to suck   
    heavily for several seconds. Quickly get into Morph Ball Mode and roll into 
    its mouth. Plant a Bomb to break away 1/6 of his health.
    Appearence:Same as Amorbis 1, just attached to the Dark Sphere
    Scan Info:The Amorbis can attach themselves to the Dark Sphere, drawing     
    potent energy from within. They can fire dark energy at light crystals,     
    nullifying Safe Zones for a short time. They can also channel the energy into
    a powerful beam attacks. Bioscans indicate a weak spot inside the creature's
    mouth. Concentrate your fire at this area to damage the Amorbis.

    Dark Aether-Emperor Ing
    ================================
    Emperor Ing Body
    Found:Sanctum in Sky Temple. The lower half of the Emperor Ing's first form.
    How to Kill:Invincible body part
    Appearence:Its hard to miss...it IS the final battle >_>
    Scan Info:Bioscans indicate that this is the strongest, eldest Ing in the  
    Horde, the Alpha, and the Omega. It has absorbed enormous amounts of Phazon 
    energy into its body, mutating itself in the process. Apparently, this power
    is not enough for the creature, as it is now siphoning energy from the final
    Energy Controller.                                          
    
    Emperor Ing Head
    Found:Sanctum in Sky Temple. Upper half of the first Emperor Ing form.
    How to Kill:Unkillable. However, destroy the many tentacles it has attached 
    to its mouth to reveal its eye.
    Appearence:An ugly blob with a ton of tentacles popping out of his mouth
    Scan Info:Like its brethron, the Emperor Ing is a metamorph. It has molded  
    itself around the precious Energy Controller, and will defend it to the    
    death, using its own body as a sheild and weapon. Destroy the tentacles it  
    generates to weaken the creature and its defenses.                   
    
    Emperor Ing Eye
    Found:Sanctum in Sky Temple, after destroying the tentacles on its head
    How to Kill:It has a sheild around the eye. However, there are 2 holes where
    your shots can go through. Super Missiles are the most effective, but are 
    harder to hit it with. Its best to stick with Charged Light Beam shots.    
    Apperence:A big red/orange circle with 2 holes, creating red beams of       
    doomyness all the time.
    Scan Info:The Emperor Ing has exposed its main eye, from which it can fire 
    powerful energy beams. It is protected by an energy sheild, although not   
    completly. The eye can be looked onto, but only direct shots will get past 
    the sheild.                                                 
    
    Emperor Ing Chrysalis
    Found:Sanctum after defeating Emperor Ing's first form
    How to Kill:Use the Spider Ball on the Chrysalis, and place Bombs over the  
    eleven holes right before a tentacle appears to kill it. Destroy all 11    
    tentacles.
    Appearence:Emperor Ing is to Ball Chrylasis as a butterfly is to a chrylasis.
    Wait....what? Its A BALL ON THE GROUND!
    Scan Info:The heavily damaged Emperor Ing has entered a regenerative state  
    inside a durable healing shell. Tactical scans have detected eleven weak    
    spots on the magnetically charged shell:Spider Ball travel is possible on   
    the shell's surface. Damage the weak spots with explosives to crack the shell
    and expose the enemy within.               
    
    Mutated Emperor Ing
    Found:After defeating the Emperor Ing Chrysalis
    How to Kill:Yeesh....this is a toughie. Its heart is red at first. Use Super
    Missiles on it when exposed to eventually change it to either White or      
    Purple. In this stage you can actually damage Mutated Emperor Ing. Use      
    Charged Light Beam shots over and over again on the Purple heart, while    
    never stopping the trigger with the Annihalator Beam when it is White. If you
    run out of ammo, many enemies happen to storm around Mutated Emperor Ing   
    sometimes when its heart isn't red. Any weapon will make them spew Ammo. 
    Appearence:A really big, really ugly Warrior Ing
    Scan Info:Further exposure to Phazon has mutated the Emperor Ing. It is now 
    capable of sheilding its vulnerable areas with energy barriers. Beams of   
    opposite polarity can damage these barriers, however. Heavy damage to these
    barriers will cause them to drop, exposing the creature's weak spots. Target
    the weak spots to immobilize and damage the enemy.    
    
    ================================
    Dark Aether-Guardians-Chykka
    ================================
    Chykka Larva
    Found:Dark Torvus Temple. Yes, that giant sack thing is the boss.
    How to Kill:Scanning it will reveal its weakest spot-the stomach. However,
    anywhere else deals damage, but Light Beam shots to the stomach are the most
    effective.                                   
    Appearence:A big white sack. Kinda hard to miss for a boss.
    Scan Info:Scans indicate 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 dark and light natures. 
    
    Chyklings
    Found:Dark Torvus Temple. Dark Chykka creates them
    How to Kill:Power Beam shot.
    Appearence:Small, tiny versions of Adult Chykka that Dark Chykka commonly 
    spawns
    Scan Info:Interaction with dark energy has mustated the Chykka. Its         
    offspring are now born as flyers, skipping the larval stage completly. These
    infants are highly protective of their parent, and will streak to attack on
    sight. They lack their parents durability, however, making them easy targets.
    
    Chykka (Adult)
    Found:Dark Torvus Temple, after defeating Chykka Larva.
    How to Kill:Target its body with many Power Beam shots (The only thing that's
    quick enough to hit it) to stun him. Watch which way Chykka turns, then     
    Grapple Beam over to the direction its wings are facing. Prepare the Seeker 
    Missiles and target the back of the 4 wings. Repeat until 1/4 of its life is
    gone, where It'll transform into Dark Chykka.
    Appearence:Picture a War Wasp, only bluer, bigger, eviler, you get the point.
    Scan Info:The Chykka has rapidly aged to its adult form. It will attack by 
    firing high-powered bursts of dark water at rapid speed. If frustrated, it 
    will try to attempt to diva and ram you. Most of the Chykka's body is       
    vulnerable to weapon fire, but scans indicate that suck 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.
    
    Dark Chykka
    Found:Dark Torvus Temple, after depleating 1/4 of Adult Chykka's life. Also
    forms after depleating 3/4 of Adult Chykka's life. (After killing the next 
    1/4 of Chykka Adult's health bar (Dark Chykka is just a transformed version 
    of normal Chykka, sharing health bars), Dark Chykka reverts back to normal 
    Chykka, and after another 1/4 of health, back to Dark Chykka for the finale.)
    How to Kill:Many Charged Light Beam shots aimed at its bloated egg sac. 
    Appearence:Its more than obvious.....its a bigger, blacker, badder version of
    Chykka.       
    Scan Info:The Chykka has recovered, and energized its body in dark energy.
    This energy has rendered most of the creature invulnerable to attack,      
    including its wings. Tactical scans indicate that its eggsac is vulnerable,
    however. Target it to damage to creature.
    Additional Notes:The Dark Chykka scan may appear hard to get. There's SERIOUS
    depth mis-perception in the battle. What may make Dark Chykka look 5 feet  
    away is actually 100 feet away. Just Grapple over to Dark Chykka.)
    
    ================================
    Dark Aether-Darklings-Aquatic
    ================================
    Dark Blogg
    Found:Training Chamber after taking either the Blue Path or the Red Path once
    How to Kill:2 Missiles
    Appearence:A normal Blogg, just blacker and.....cooler looking :)
    Scan Info:Dark Bloggs somehow lose their sonic blast ability:something about
    their minds make them difficult darklings to fully control. They rely solely
    on their deadly maws for attack:in most cases they are more than adequate. 
    Target the weak spot inside its mouth to defeat the Dark Blogg with ease.   
    
    Dark Phlogus
    Found:Abondened Worksite in Dark Torvus Bog
    How to Kill:Unkillable. Hit it once when mouth is open to flip it over.
    Appearence:A large black clam sitting quitely in the water
    Scan Info:The Phlogus waits patiently as it floats in murky waters, searching
    for a meal. When its seismic sensors in its epidermis are triggered, it     
    springs open rapidly to attack. Phlougus's can fire a spray of venom to     
    immobilize their prey. A central nervous system is exposed when it opens its
    mouth to attack:damage this to stun the Phlogus for a time.         
    
    ================================
    Dark Aether-Darklings-Darkling Ground
    ================================
    Dark Grenchler
    Found:Dungeon in Dark Torvus Bog
    How to Kill:Same as a Grenchler. Hit its tail with Super Missiles to expose 
    its main flesh...obvious from there.
    Appearence:A Grenchler, only blacker, louder, and likes to bite your face
    Scan Info:Darklings are drawn to possess vicious predators, making the      
    Grenchler a prime candidate. Despite the added toughness gained from       
    possession, the Dark Grenchler retains its one weakness. remove its back    
    shell with explosive blasts to expose its pain center, then attack the pain 
    center to quickly dispate the creature.
    
    Dark Splinter
    Found:Inhabitants of Temple Grounds
    How to Kill:Several Charged Power Beam shots.
    Appearence:A small black bug, like a Splinter (go figure?)
    Scan Info:Target is host to a parsitic bioform. The presence of the parasite
    increases the target's overall threat combat level. Concentrated weapons   
    fire will damage the crature.                
    
    Dark Alpha Splinter
    Found:Temple Energy Controller, 1 time scan.
    How to Kill:Many Missiles and Charge Beam shots
    Appearence:The Alpha Splinter after getting possessed
    Scan Info:Splinter alpha males are the first to be targeted for darkling   
    possession. Dark Alpha Splinters grow in strength and durability, making them
    an even greater threat than normal.
    
    ================================
    Dark Aether-Darklings-Darkling Flyers
    ================================
    Dark War Wasp
    Found:Vault Attack Portal in Dark Sanctuary Fortress
    How to Kill:Charge Beam.
    Appearence:You probably won't get close enough to one to actually distinguish
    the difference between it an a normal War Wasp. Just keep the Scan Visor out
    mmmkay?
    Scan Info:Vicious and swift, the War Wasp is a prime target for young Ing   
    eager to join the war effort. They appreciate the flying speed and numerous 
    attacks the insect possesses. If they prove therony mettle in the War Wasp,
    these Ing often graduate to the control of larger, deadlier creatures.    
    
    Dark Shredder
    Found:Chykka Larva fight. THEY CAN ONLY BE FOUND HERE!!!! Spawned         
    occasionally while Chykka Larva is swimmming around.
    How to Kill:Charge Beam....or just let if get close to you and self-       
    destruct. The radius is tiny and often won't hurt you much. 
    Appearence:Purple flying creatures of doom. Kinda hard to miss. Also enjoy 
    RUNNING AWAY from you if you slowly stalk them. Its kinda funny to do :)
    Scan Info:The hardy Shredder is a favorite possession target for Ing that  
    dwell near dark waters.. Dark Shredders can lurk in the venomous waters    
    infefinitely, patitently waiting for prey. They are very resililent, but can
    be elminated by concentrated weapon fire.
    
    Nightbarb
    Found:Whatever the Dark Version of Mining Station B is, and Abondened Base 
    How to Kill:Power Beam shot
    Appearence:Little purple triangles that fly in the hundreds. Likes to hurt 
    you :) :)     
    Scan Info:Nightbarbs are small airborne darklings. Smaller and weaker than a
    Hunter Ing, a Nightbarb will travel with a large pack to increase its odds 
    of survival. This is wise, since their primary predators are Hunter Ing.   
    
    ================================
    Dark Aether-Darklings-Darkling Offworld
    ================================
    Dark Pirate Commando
    Found:Anywhere in Torvus Bog. These bastards enjoy locking you in the room 
    they are in until they either die or 2.5 minutes has expired and they grow  
    bored and leave.
    How to Kill:They are EXTREMLY hard to kill by normal conventional means. Use
    an Entangler shot (AKA Charged Dark Beam) to freeze them up, and unleash a  
    Missile for an insta kill. Hmmm...handy right?
    Appearence:Unknown. I've never gotten close enough to one before they warp 
    somewhere else. 
    Scan Info:The Ing prize the few Pirate Commandoes they manage to take alive.
    Only Hunter Ing are allowed to possess the Commandoes, and the competition 
    for that right is fierce amoung 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 an experimental EMP grenades   
    stolen from Space Pirates.
    
    Dark Missile Trooper
    Found:In a room several doors away from the Landin Site. Only battled after 
    obtaining the Violet Translator (1 TIME SCAN!!!)
    How to Kill:Its health bar is irrelevent. Several Charge Beam shots dispatch
    him rather quickly. 
    Appearence:A walking dead Bravo team trooper
    Scan Info:Bioscans indicate terminated lifesings in this missile trooper, 
    and the presence of an unknown biomass with parasitic tendencies. Though the
    missile trooper's armor has been comprimised, the bulk of it remains        
    intact. Missile weapon systems remain online as well. Full parasitic fusion 
    has yet to be obtained, resulting in low agility and response time.   
    
    Dark Tallon Metroid
    Found:Phazon Grounds in Sky Temple Grounds
    How to Kill:I suggest running like hell from these life sucking creatures 
    WHO WILL INDEED attack you within a 50 foot radius, and WILL NEVER stop until
    you leave the room. If you must know.....wait. I've never killed one       
    normally. Screw Attack makes short work of them. If attached, use a Morph   
    Ball Bomb to shake them off. (That's been the customary rule in EVERY Metroid
    game.)                       
    Appearence:Do I NEED to explain what a Metroid looks like? Please state the 
    title of the game. Its a METROID game. I think we've seen plenty Metroids in
    our past. Incase your memory is drawing a blank...wait for it to screech a  
    hellish screech sound and start sucking 60 health away per second. 
    Scan Info:The Ing are facinated by Metroids and their connection to Phazon.
    It is not a shared facination, as Metroid will attack Ing on sight.        
    Reconizing their strength, Ing darklings have possessed a number of Metroid 
    turning them into powerful soliders of the Horde.
    Addtional Notes:In Phazon Grounds, a Dark Tallon Metroid is ironically     
    carrying around a Pirate Trooper. This is ood because 1.Space Pirates die   
    upon contact with Dark Aether's atmosphere and 2.Metroid attack ANYTHING that
    has energy. Even their creators. Yet getting close to the Metroid will      
    release to Space Pirate, who will then fight you. Weird.
    
    Dark Pirate Trooper
    Found:Portal Terminal in Dark Agon Wastes. They aren't friendly :(
    How to Kill:RUN. LIKE. HELL.
    Appearence:Can't be said. I just run from them. Is that a bad thing? They are
    purple bastards. I know that.
    Scan Info:Pirate Troopers, already trained to follow orders without question,
    were perfect candidates for Ing possession. Darklings moved to take every 
    trooper they could, expanding the army of the Horde considerably. Space    
    Pirate technology struck a chord with the Ing, who now hunt actively for    
    gadgets of any kind-especially weapon systems.
    
    Dark Trooper
    Found:All over the beginning area of the game
    How to Kill:1 Charge Beam
    Appearence:A walking dead Bravo team trooper
    Scan Info:Bioscans indicate terminated lifesings in this attack trooper, 
    and the presence of an unknown biomass with parasitic tendencies. Though the
    missile trooper's armor has been comprimised, the bulk of it remains        
    intact. Weapon systems remain online as well. Full parasitic fusion 
    has yet to be obtained, resulting in low agility and response time.   
    
    Dark Preed
    Found:Uh....I'm not sure. Some random places in Dark Torvus Bog
    How to Kill:You don't want these things to die. Trust me.
    Appearence:A small ball of metal floating around puffing poisonous gas. NOT 
    NICE.      
    Scan Info:The aggressive Preeds are often possessed by darklings for aerial 
    hunting missions. The presence of the dark creature makes the small cyborg 
    more durable. The toxic gas carried by a Preed is enhanced by exposure to   
    dark energy, making it considerably more dangerous.    
    
    ================================
    Dark Aether-Darklings-Darkling Mechanoids
    ================================
    Dark Diligence Drone
    Found:Some room next to the Dark Aether version of Hall of Combat Mastery.
    How to Kill:Charged Light Beam shots is its only weakness.
    Appearence:A spinning black ball >_>
    Scan Info:Some Diligence drones have been taken over by the Ing for        
    possessive duties. Their small size and durability makes the excellant     
    scouts able to go where most other cannot. A Dark Diligence still relies on
    focused energy beams for defense. Their energy construct nature makes them  
    invulnerable to most attacks. A high-powered burst of light energy can      
    disrupt a Dark Diligence unit.
    
    Dark Quad MB
    Found:Sanctuary Temple. Dissappear after retreving the Colbalt Translator.  
    Can lastly be found during the Quadraxis fight. Otherwise, nowhere else. 
    How to Kill:I find them too strong, and slow and stupid. Ignore them.
    Appearence:A purple Quad.
    Scan Info:The Ing discovered they could possess and control artificially    
    intelligent machines as well as normal beings. They soon turned to the loyal
    Quad right against the Luminoth, finding the machines to be quite useful   
    additions to the Horde.                       
    
    Dark Quad CM
    Found:The Command Module of a Dark Quad....same place as above.
    How to Kill:Same as above
    Appearence:Same as above
    Scan Info:The Ing discovered they could possess and control artificially    
    intelligent machines as well as normal beings. They soon turned to the loyal
    Quad right against the Luminoth, finding the machines to be quite useful   
    additions to the Horde. A dominant darkling assumes control of the Command 
    Module, forcing the lesser Ing into its body to do its bidding.
    
    Corrupted Sentreye
    Found:You'll find them a plenty on your way to the Sky Temple.
    How to Kill:Charged Light Beam shot. All other shots stun its beams.
    Appearence:Red eye on the wall shooting lasers. Can't miss lasers ;)
    Scan Info:The Sentreyes were designed by the Luminoth to protect their camps
    on Dark Aether. The Ing learned how to possess them and turned them against
    their former masters. Many still remain throughout Dark Aether, now serving
    the Ing as they served the Luminoth before them. Most weapon types will stun
    the Sentreyes, charged light energy will destroy them.
    
    Dark Ingsmasher
    Found:Main Reactor Dark Aether version in Sanctuary Fortress
    How to Kill:Same as an Ingsmasher
    Appearence:Like an Ingsmasher
    Scan Info:Once the Ing discovered they could possess intelligent machines,
    the mighty Ingsmashers were top priority targets for the Horde. The drones 
    retain all of their attacks-shock wave fists and missile launchers. It uses
    an energy sheild in battle that can be adjusted to protect against a variety
    of beam weapons. The sheild can be overloaded by opposite-polarity beams. 
    
    ================================
    Offworld-Pirates
    ================================
    Preed
    Found:Hydrodynamo Statiohn
    How to Kill:Best to avoid them...although 3 Power Beam shots makes them    
    'splode.             
    Appearence:A floating spiky ball
    Scan Info:The cybernetic Preeds are aggressive hunters used as patrol      
    animals by the Space Pirates. They carry lethal Nohadin gas for use as a   
    defense mechanism. If the Preed is ruptured, the gas within it is violently 
    released. This toxic cloud is often proven fatal to the Preed's killer.   
    
    Pirate Trooper
    Found:Central Mining Station is your first time to see them. They become   
    harder and harder to find after that through the game, so scan them early.
    How to Kill:Several Charge Beam shots
    Appearence:A metallic charisma that enjoys attacking you with red beam shots
    as well as making growling sounds. Also noticeable a Space Pirate type is   
    nearby when their backround battle theme starts playing.
    Scan Info: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 recieved numerous
    upgrades to his arsenal. A photanic power scythe and quantim assult cannon  
    are now standard-issue weapons for all troopers.         
    
    Pirate Grenadier
    Found:Various rooms along the Space Pirate Base in Agon Wastes
    How to Kill:Several Charge Beam shots
    Appearence:Same as Space Pirate, but with a large cannon strapped to their 
    right arm.
    Scan Info: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.     
    
    Pirate Commando
    Found:Torvus Grove, then lastly Sanctuary Entrance first time. I believe they
    reappear in Torvus Grove, not sure however. (1 Time Scan???)
    How to Kill:Ouchies. They, conviently, appear in rooms with several Phazon 
    tanks. Lure them near one, and blow it up. The Commando will die. Happyness.
    Appearence:REALLY cool looking Space Pirates. Can't be missed.
    Scan Info:Dedicated to "hunting the Hunter," Space Pirate Commando units   
    have been equipped with the latest weapons, including a varible pulse cannon,
    e-grenade launcher, and energy scythe. Powerful thrusters carry them at    
    high speeds over any terrain. A portable barrier sheild repels most attacks,
    but can only be deployed for limited periods.           
    
    Pirate Aerotrooper
    Found:Everywhere. Literally. You will find them so often in places you've  
    visited its annoying.
    How to Kill:They are susceptible to 2 Charge Beams.
    Appearence:An ugly Space Pirate flying around on a jet pack.
    Scan Info:Pirate Aerotroopers are known for their cold precision and utter 
    cruelty. Armed with both beam and missile systems, the Aerotrooper can be a 
    difficult for 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 attempt strike before 
    allowing himself to be captured.           
    
    ================================
    Offworld-Metroids
    ================================
    Infant Tallon Metroid
    Found:Biohazard Storage after facing Dark Samus 1. (1 Time Scan!!!)???
    How to Kill:Few Power Beam shots....or let it touch Phazon to mutate into a 
    normal Tallon Metroid. 
    Appearence:A tiny, cute as heck blue Metroid. Aww.....
    Scan Info: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 aquire their full array of powers.   
    
    Tallon Metroid
    Found:Several places in the Space Pirate Base in Agon Wastes
    How to Kill:Charge Dark Beam followed by a Missile easily kills them.
    Appearence:A red colored Metroid
    Scan Info: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.
    
    ================================
    Offworld-Dark Samus
    ================================
    Dark Samus 1
    Found:Main Reactor. All Dark Samus's are 1 Time Scans!!!
    How to Kill:Many Charge Beam shots
    Appearence:Is it THAT hard to see a clone of yourself? Remember SA-X? Think
    that, only with the Phazon Suit.
    Scan Info:Scans indicate the presence of Phazon and your genetic material   
    within this entity. She wears a version of the Varia Suit, altered and     
    agumented 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     
    sheilds is also present.            
    
    Dark Samus 2
    Found:Aerie and Aerie Transport
    How to Kill:LOTSA Super Missiles
    Appearence:Its extremely hard to miss a clone of yourself.....
    Scan Info:Tactical scans have identified several new battle systems in the
    armor of Dark Samus. She now weilds 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 atomic disruption. Extreme caution reccommended.       
    
    Dark Samus 3
    Found:Sky Temple Gateway, during the final 8 minutes of the game. NOT in her
    big Phazon bubble form.
    How to Kill:Super Missiles will eventually activate her becoming Dark Samus 
    4....                
    Appearence:*yawn*I'm sick of explaining....
    Scan Info:Scans indicate Dark Samus has absorbed tremendous levels of Phazon
    into her body:too much, perhaps. She can vent Phazon energy in the for of  
    destructive blasts and protective sheilds:doing so will help her maintain  
    stability. Exposure to Phazon has rendered her invisible to your Dark       
    Visor. These new abilities, combined with her already formidable arsenal, 
    places Dark Samus at the highest threat level. 
    
    Dark Samus 4
    Found:Sky Temple Gateway. Yes, that large bubble of Phazon is a new Dark   
    Samus Scan.
    How to Kill:Wait for it to expose many small Phazon chunks, then collect them
    with the Charge Beam, and fire it back at Dark Samus. 
    Appearence:Oh my god....
    Scan Info:Dark Samus has temporarily become a being of pure yet unstable   
    Phazon energy. Sher can generate a sheild 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.

    Lore....what is Lore? Lore is basically huge amounts of information about  
    many different subjects in the Metroid Prime series. Still true today. There
    isn't around 15 Lore scans like Metroid Prime had, but rather around 100. 
    The information you will learn about is astounding. You learn all about the
    Luminoth, the Bravo Team's deadly mission, and about the Sky Temple Keys' 
    history. Its all intresting. I give the name of the Lore, and the location
    room its in (You can't kill Lore duh!). Also note the _NO_ Lore is a 1-Time
    Scan. So take your time finding the Lore. Space Pirate Lore I find the most
    intresting, starting from the very start of them discovering Phazon on     
    planet Aether, an ending with the unfortuante appearence of the Hunter      
    (AKA Samus Aran).

    the stealth field generator with her strange new weapons. We are exposed.   
    Until the replacement generator arrives, we will be vulnerable to scans and

    we will be unable to defend our position. Fortunately, Aether is on the edge

    Scan Info:What craven salvages are the Ing! Trapped in the catacombs with no
    chance of rescue, I fought to the last. I watched them feed ipon their dead.
    I heard them pressing the lesser of their number into the front ranks that my
    blasts would take them. At least their leader stood against me in battle. He
    was a foe worthy of a Luminoth warrior.

    Research is kinda hard to specify exactly what it is. Its basically Biology
    of Aether and Dark Aether, as well as all the techniclogical stuff like   
    Spinners and....other things. I'mb really bad at explaining this kind of 
    thing...There are 2 1-Time Only Research Scans. I'll point them out along

    stasis until crisis is resolved.                                        
    
    Aether
    Found:Command Center
    Scan Info:Planet is unstable due to transdimensional flux. Warfare has    
    devestated a good portion of the world's population. Finally, extreme climate
    shifts have left most of Aether unhospitible.                        
    
    Dark Portal
    Found:Anywhere in Aether where you scan a machine to goto Dark Aether, or 
    where a Dark Beam shots needs to activate it.
    Scan Info:Dark Portal's allow living beings to travel to Dark Aether without
    being disrupted and scattered throughout the interdimensional void. They are
    unstable, however, and only remaing viable for a limited periods of time.  
    Some can be reactivated, while others vanish forever once they are used. 
    
    Energy Controller
    Found:Agon/Torvus/Sanctuary Energy Controller
    Scan Info:Energy Controllers were built by the Luminoth to regulate Aether's
    planetary energy. Several wonders are powered by the Energy Controller's, 
    including a weather control grid and a teleportation system. When Dark

    Research-Luminoth Technology-Light Crystals
    ================================
    Light Crystal
    Found:Its all over Dark Aether
    Scan Info:Light Crystals provide protection from Dark Aether's atmosphere. 
    They can be nullified by dark energy, or super charged by light energy. They
    were created by the Luminoth during the 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.                                         
    
    Energized Crystal
    Found:Shoot Light Crystal with Light Beam
    Scan Info:Energized Crystals provide better protection from Dark Aether's  
    denizens. Dark creatures are damaged or killed 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.                       
    
    Nullified Crystal
    Found:Shoot a Light Crystal with a Dark Beam shot
    Scan Info:Light Crystals, when covered with dark energy, cease to function 
    for a short time. Light energy can clear the Crystal of the dark energy.   
    Some dark creatures will fire dark energy at Light Crystals to hinder or   
    damage their opponents.                                        
    
    Super Crystal
    Found:Shoot a Light Crystal with an Annihilator shot
    Scan Info:When charged with light an dark energy at once, the Crystal      
    becomes a beacon to the Ing. They are compelled to approach it, despite the 
    deadly field of energy it emits.                                       
    
    ================================
    Research-Luminoth Technology-Utility Crystals
    ================================
    Sentinel Crystals
    Found:Great Bridge
    Scan Info:During the war, the Luminoth used 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 reamining Sentinel  
    Crystals to keep a watch for Ing activity.                               
    
    Dark Sentinel Crystal
    Found:Dark Forgotten Bridge
    Scan Info:The orginal Sentinel Crystals were durable, but they had their   
    limits. The toxic nature of Dark Aether, combined with constant attack from
    the Ing, destroyed many of them. The Luminoth responed with the Dark Sentinel
    Crystal. Sheathed in dark energy, it is more resistant to the atmosphere of 
    the Ing homeworld-and the attacks of its denizens.                        
    
    ================================
    Research-Luminoth Technology-Light Beacons
    ================================
    Light Beacon
    Found:Everywhere in Dark Aether, the glowing balls of light!
    Scan Info:Light Beacons must be energized by Beam weapons fire to function,
    and they remain charged for a limited time. The Beacons were crated when   
    the Luminoth ran short of Light Crystals during the war. While simple 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 Luminoth warriors.                                   
    
    Nullified Beacon
    Found:Shoot a Light Beacon with a Dark Beam shot
    Scan Info: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.  
    
    Super Beacon
    Found:Shoot a Light Beacon with an Annihilator shot
    Scan Info:When charged with light an dark energy at once, the Beacon

    Liftvine Crystal
    Found:Brooding Grounds
    Scan Info:Darkling plantform will grow in height when Crystal is energized  
    by light-based weaponry. The Luminoth used these to navigate their         
    campaigns on Dark Aether. The Ing ingnore the simple plant, as is is not   
    a source of nourishment or a weapon.

    activate the device it powers.                                           
    
    Kinetic Orb Cannon
    Found:GMFC Compound
    Scan Info:The purpose of the Kinetic Orb Cannon is unclear. It may have    
    originally been designed for industrial use, then converted to a combat    
    system in later times.                                                   
    
    Spider Ball Track
    Found:Dynamo Works
    Scan Info:In Morph Ball mode, press and hold "R" when close to this type of
    surface. Use the Control Stick to move the Ball along the track. Release   
    "R" to disengage from the surface. Using the Boost ability when on a Spider 
    Ball Track will rapidly launch the Spider Ball from the track. Detonating a
    Morph Ball Bomb will breifly diengage the Ball from the track.

    ================================
    Research-Biology-Plantforms
    ================================
    Sandgrass
    Found:Plaza Access
    Scan Info:Sandgrass scans indicate that the plant requires no moisture to  
    survive. It relies exclusively on solar energy for sustenance, making it well
    adapted for life in the desert enviroment. Evidence of extensive mutation  
    present, suggesting radical bio-adjustments within the last centicycle.    
    Mutation source is not natural:plant strain was genetically engineered     
    possible by the Luminoth.                                                 
    
    Bloatsac
    Found:Forgotten Bridge
    Scan Info:The humble Bloatsac contributes to its ecology by producing large
    amounts of benevolent gases. It thrives in damp enviroments, though it can  
    survive in most climates and terrains. The Bloatsac secretes a venemous   
    sap over its body. Very few creatures can ingest the sap and survive, making
    it a useful defensive mechanism for the plant.                            
    
    Torvus Hanging Pod
    Found:Temple Transport Access
    Scan Info:The Luminoth placed these pods throughout the bog for use by their
    soliders during the war. Though many have been raided since then, some     
    still contain useful items left over from the war.                          
    
    Agon Bearerpod
    Found:Mining Plaza
    Scan Info:The Agon Bearerpod is a hardy desert plantform used by the Luminoth
    to store useful items and supplies. Its tough empidermis can be destroyed   
    by 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 neccessary.                                    
    
    Torvus Bearerpod
    Found:Transport to Temple Grounds 
    Scan Info:The Torvus Bearerpod grows around useful items. The hard outer   
    shell can be destroyed 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 dscouraged their consumption by local
    animals.                                                                 
    
    Blueroot Tree
    Found:Agon Map Station
    Scan Info:The Blueroot tree is common on world's with desert regions. While 
    an elegant, attractive plant, the tree's leaves are highly toxic. Few      
    species can ingest the species and live:many of the (such as Space Pirates)
    consider the deadly Blueroot leaf a delicacy.
    
    ================================
    Research-Biology-Ing Storage
    ================================
    Ingsphere Cache
    Found:Dark Forgotten Bridge
    Scan Info:The Ingsphere keeps useful items in a dimensional pocket. Normally,
    the 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 it is worth the risk.                                         
    
    Flying Ing Cache
    Found:Defiled Shrine (WARNING:THERE ARE 9 FLYING ING CACHES! KILLING THEM ALL
    MEANS AN IMPOSSIBLE SCAN!!!)
    Scan Info:The Flying Cache was bred and trained to be a living storage unit.
    It employs a limited stealth field that renders it unseen to most enemies.  
    The fact that the creature must be killed to obtain the object it stores   
    is of little consequence to the Ing.                                      
    
    Ingworm Cache
    Found:Culling Chamber
    Scan Info:Ingworms wrap their bodies around useful items to protect them.   
    They are defenseless. They are not terribly durable and have no form of    
    attack, hence their assignments as storage containment units to the Ing.    
    
    Bladepod
    Found:Portal Site
    Scan Info:These Ing morph their bodies around useful items to protect them. 
    They rely on larger Ing for protection, as they have no way of fending off  
    enemies. Damage from all weapons will harm them, but light-based weapons

    ??? Admin-I'm not sure which Admin I had a "conversation" if you could call 
    it that with, but he/she said that if a 100% Logbook guide isn't posted     
    before mine it'll be accepted. And since this is a LOGBOOK guide, not exactly
    a scan guide, it'll get accepted. Special thanks to whichever Admin confirmed
    this! :)
