                                  ~I.Story~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Metroid Prime 2:Echoes has a pretty complex story and an intresting one at
that. This is taken COMPLETELY from the Instruction Manual, none of the   
following information was typed orginally by me.

A WAR OF TWO WORLDS

Once, long ago, a race of creatures called the Luminoth settled on planet 
Aether afer many nomadic generations of roaming the universe. They carved 
out a peaceful existence there, coming to know the land and animals and    
bathing in the power of what they called "The Light of Aether". To prolong 
the lifetime of the planet, they decided the harness this light by building 
Energy Controllers that would be housed in holy temples. They built three 
of these temples, one in each of their settlements, and linked them to their
most sacred place, the Great Temple. A golden age of peace and prosperity  
blessed them, and they were content.                                      

The peace would not last, though. They tracked a meteor with a crash course
with their planet, and could do nothing but watched as it approached. The  
meteor's strike scorched the earth, cast the seas into convulsions, and    
spread a veil of darkness over all that the Luminoth knew...but that was    
not all. The explosion and the energy from the meteor opened a dimensional 
rift in Planet Aether, spawning a second planet that existed in a different 
dimension. Dimensional rips soon bloomed on Light Aether, and an evil race 
of dark creatures ventured forth, spreading violence. The Luminoth named    
these creatures the Ing, and soon created portals to follow them into a world
they would come to know as Dark Aether.                                    

This twin planet, which had given birth to the Ing Horde, was a poisonous 
mirror of their own, and the Luminoth retreated from its damaging effects. 
Over time, however, as the Ing continued to make war on Light Aether and  
began to possess both creatures and friends alike, the Luminoth had to    
return and fight. They set up beacons of light that acted like protective 
oases against the dark creatures, and fought tooth and nail against the   
Ing. The war raged, and a stalemate soon became apparent; the Luminoth    
could not defeat the Ing on Dark Aether, and the powerful light of Aether 
was too much for the Ing to overcome.                                    

The stalemate could not last forever. The planet's energy has been divided 
between the dark and light world's, and both sides wanted to control it.   
The Luminoth created an Energy Transfer Module desgined to absorb the energy
from Dark Aether, only to have it stolen and used against them. Their      
temples fell one by one, until only their last, the Great Temple,         
remained. With only enough planetary energy to support one world, this     
temple was all that stood between Dark Aether completly eclipsing Light    
Aether, eradicating the last of the Luminoth.                             

Into this conflict came a new factor. A Federation ship chased a Space Pirate
vessel onto the surface and engaged them, only to be attacked and decimated
by the Ing. After losing contact with the troops, the Federation          
suspected the worst. Unwilling to abandon all hope, they sent an urgent   
message to Samus Aran...                                                 

Mission recived from Galactic Federation...                               

Locate troops lost in Dash region of Planet Aether...                      

Priority 1...                                                             

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            ~II.Controls~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The controls to Samus are very easy to understand and execute yourself. I 
will also cover in this section everything about Samus's visor, exactly what
your looking out the entire game.                                         

A Button-Push this to fire your selected Beam weapon. Push is rapidly for
rapid fire.                                                              

B Button-Push this to Jump. While in mid-air, push again to perform a Space 
Jump (only when you have obtained). While Locked On, hold left or right and
push B to do a Strafe manuver, where you quickly move left or right and    
cover lots of ground quickly. Finally, when you have the Gravity Boost,   
push and hold B after performing a Space Jump underwater to slowly rise up 
for a few seconds.                                                        

X Button-Push this to go into Morph Ball Mode. While there, push again to be
in Regular Mode again.                                                    

Y Button-Fire Missiles while in Standard Mode. In Morph Ball Mode, lay Power
Bombs with this button.                                                    

Z Button-Bring up the Map to the screen for useage. Push Z again to close the
Map.                                                                       

C Stick-Use the C Stick to switch between your availble beams, shown on the 
bottom right side of the screen. Push the direction on screen for the Beam 
wanted.                                                                   

Control Pad-Use this to switch between the availble visors. The visors are 
shown on the bottom left side of the screen. Push the direction for the visor
wanted.                                                                   

Control Stick-Use this to move Samus around, and use it to Strafe around with
the B Button.                                                            

L Button-One of the most important buttons. Use it when an enemy is in view
to Lock On to it by holding L down. Also, for use of the Grapple Beam near 
Grapple points.                                                            

R Button-While standing still, hold it to look up and down, and in all angles
too. Also, for use with the Spider Ball when you have obtained that item in 
the game.                                                                

=====================================
Seeing through the Visor
=====================================
When you are playing the game, you will be viewing everything from Samus's 
point of view (except when in Morph Ball form). There are several key things
to know on the HUD (Heads Up Display) screen, so first-timers, pay attention
here.

Energy-At the top-middle of the screen is a meter and a number next to it. 
This is your energy reserves. Its basically how much health your Power    
Suit has remaining before you die. Whenever you collect an Energy Tank, you
will gain 100 extra units of Energy, represented by a blue dot above the  
meter. It will dissappear and be in effect if the previous 100 units has been
lost.                                                                      

Radar-Crucial to survival, the top left corner of the screen has a small   
circle on it. There is a small pie piece section in it that is colored a bit
differently than the rest of it. This is Samus's view. Enemies that come 
within radar will appear as orange dots. Use the Radar to find any enemies 
that your getting attacked by, but can't see. Also note enemies may be above
or below you!                                                              

Threat Assessment-On the left side of your screen you will se a kinda tall
meter, with an exclamation mark (!) at the top of it. This is the Threat   
Assessment guage. When you approach dangerous enviroments, such as fire,  
poisonous gas, Dark Aether's atmosphere, etc., the meter will slowly rise 
until you are standing in the poison, where the Threat Assessment guage will
be at the top, and you will be recieving damage for your stupidity (Except 
in Dark Aether as there's NO avoiding damage there...). Keep an eye on it at
all times.                                                                 

Map-In the top right corner of the screen, there is a small place for the Map
to be located. It shows you what room your in, and the blinking green arrow
is Samus's current position. Push the Z Button to bring up the entire world
Map for a better view of where you next destination is going to be and how to
get there.                                                                

Missile Reserves-Near the middle-right side of the screen is a fraction    
number, with the classic Missile symbol next to it. This is your Missile    
Reserves. The bottom number is your maximum capicity of Missiles, the top  
number representing how many Missiles you currently have left to spend.    
Carefully use your Missiles! They can be refilled by gaining Missile      
ammunition.                                                                

Dark/Light Beam Ammo-Near the bottom right side of your screen, once you get
the Light and Dark Beams, will be a meter representing the amount of Ammo 
for each respective beam you have left. That's basically all this meter does,
so keep an eye on it to make sure you don't run out at a very inconvienent
time!                                                                      

Beam Weapons:In the bottom right corner are a few squares, each with a     
symbol on them. These represent your Beam Weapons. Empty squares obviously
represent you don't have that beam yet. there are 4 Beams, including the   
Power Beam. Use the C-Stick to choose your beam from that small menu by    
pushing the correct direction.                                             

Targeting Reticule-This can be anywhere on the screen, depending on where the
enemy you are locking onto is. This small circle will focus on the enemy, 
and your attacks will be directed right at it (Not homing in...just fired at
it). Its easy to see, and you will surely be seeing it all the time with  
Lock On's.                                                                 

Visors-the bottom left corner is home to the same type of squares the Beam
Weapons area uses. However, this is your Visors menu. Using the Control   
Pad, choose whichever Visor you want to see through. All Visors have       
different effects.                                                       

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 ~III.Important Thing To Know About the Game~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
====================
Backtracking
====================
Some love it...others hate it. The Metroid games are all about Backtracking.
That's what makes them fun. You just KNOW there's an Expansion or items of 
some kind in a specified room, yet to all your useless efforts can't      
possibly reach it and give up. Well, you come back later with newer abilities
and find how easy it is then to get the aforementioned item. Crazy isn't it?
Anyways, in this FAQ I will cover how to get 100% everything. Scans and   
Expansions. Of course, you CAN skip those two things. Their optional. Retro
isn't forcing you to grab Missile Expansions and Energy Tanks much far out of
your way just so you can beat the game. Don't get Expansions and other     
stuff if the 100% Ending means nothing to you. I'm not, and can't, force you
to do so.                                                                

But anyways, I just want to clear up the beginning statement of the previous
paragraph. EVERY, and I mean _every_ Metroid game has had lots and lots of 
backtracking to previous areas. Fortunately, Metroid Prime 2:Echoes has   
a minimal amount of required backtracking. Some of course is needed, but   
there are easily found shortcuts to those areas, which I will most       
certainly cover. So, if your forced to go back to previous areas, its not a 
big deal, especially considering the fact that you can also pick up previous
Expansions with new abilities possible along the way. Speaking about       
Expansions....                                                              

========================================
Expansions and Tanks                                         
========================================
There are a ton of Missile Expansions, Power Bomb Expansions, Beam Ammo    
Expansions, and Energy Tanks within the game. I will cover the locations of
all of them during the segments within this FAQ. However, none of them    
are required. During this FAQ I will, before explaining in detail what to 
do in the room, put a "ENERGY TANK", "MISSILE EXPANSION", "BEAM AMMO      
EXPANSION", or "POWER BOMB EXPANSION" tag and state where in the room the  
respective Expansion is. I will ONLY put these tags if the Expansion is   
possible to retrieve at the point of the game I'm describing at. If it isn't,
then it won't be there and you will obviously be going back to that location
later.                                                                     

========================================
Temple Keys                                         
========================================
In order to enter the three Temples, and the Sky Temple, of Dark Aether, you
first need to find their respective keys. They AREN'T optional, and must be
found to complete and progress through the game. I'll lable a Key as a    
DARK AGON KEY, DARK TORVUS KEY, ING HIVE KEY, or SKY TEMPLE KEY before      
giving the description of the room the Key is in. As with Expansions, I     
won't tell you about the Key until it is possible to obtain that Key when  
you are in that room. If you want to know the exact locations of every     
single Temple Key, look ahead to the next section. That is perfect just for
your needs.                                                               

========================================
Scan Scan Scanning!                                       
========================================
Scanning is one of the most fun parts of the Metroid Prime games. They enable
you to learn about the various objects and things in every room. Its      
pretty cool. To Scan something, push the Control Pad left, and you will be  
in the Scan Visor. Find a colored object, aim at it, and hold L until      
Scanning is complete. You will be given a detailed description on whatever 
you just Scanned. Red objects are Mission-Critical objects. They include   
key descriptions for the lost Federation Troopers, or descriptions for the 
Temple Keys in general. Things in Blue aren't really important things to   
Scan. Most things are put into your Logbook, and count for your Scan      
percentage. Things in Green are objects that have already been Scanned.    
Pushing L on them instantly brings up their scan, as you have already Scanned
the object.                                                              

========================================
Getting a Perfect File                                         
========================================
People like to have a fully complete file. Its just one thing that many    
people enjoy doing-having a file with literally everything completed. If you
want 100% Scans and 100% Items, I highly suggest you pay attention to the 
Walktrhough section with the "Tabbed" areas. These are indented, or, AKA,  
the optional portion of the game. Grab the items and Scans with them if you
want, or skip them and go right to you assigned destination. If you want    
a perfect file, your gonna be doing the indented section, unless you wanna 
come back later...                                                        

========================================
Unlockables in the Game                                         
========================================
There are several unlockable things you can grab your hands on during and 
after the game:                                                           

When you get...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       ~IV.Locations of all Keys~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is quite possible the number one asked question on the message boards.
Where in the hell are the Temple/Sky Temple Keys? Some are obvious and    
impossible to miss. Others you may and probably will easily pass. However,
your reading this guide so I don't think your gonna be missing any of the 
Temple Keys. I will describe the locations of the Agon, Torvus, Ing Hive   
and Sky Temple Keys. I also give and will be getting them manually during the
course of the Walkthrough, but if you accidentally missed one, or are just 
looking for a specific section I don't blame you. Anyways, here are the Keys'
locations.

========================================
Dark Agon Temple Key 1                                      
========================================
Found:Doomed Entry in Dark Agon Wastes
How to Obtain:After taking the portal from the Command Center in Agon Wastes,
you will be able to clearly see this Key sitting atop a higher ledge. In   
order to reach that ledge, you need to head over to the other side of the  
room and shoot a Missile at a Luminoth statue head, breaking it away and   
exposing a Light Lift Crystal. Shoot the Crystal with the Dark Beam to    
lower the platform. Jump on it, then make an easy Space Jump over to the 
Dark Agon Key.                                                            

========================================
Dark Agon Temple Key 2                                
========================================
Found:Battleground in Dark Agon Wastes
How to Obtain:When you first enter the Battleground room, you will see the
Dark Agon temple Key just sitting there in plain sight. Unfortunately, once 
you approach it the Ing will steal it. About 6-7 Warrior Ing will start    
attacking you. Its a rough battle. Use your aquired Charged Light Beam    
shots on the Warrior Ing to quickly dispatch them. Break open the Bearerpods
on the sides of the walls for Health and Ammo. Once all of the Warrior     
Ing have been killed, you will be able to grab the Key which will have    
reappeared.                                                               

========================================
Dark Agon Temple Key 3                                        
========================================
Found:Trial Tunnel
How to Obtain:The easiest to obtain of all Keys in the entire game. Once you
first enter the Dark Agon Temple, head left until you reach a door. Enter  
inside the door and in a very very tiny room you will find the final Dark  
Agon Temple Key.                                                           

========================================
Dark Torvus Temple Key 1                                        
========================================
Found:Dark Torvus Arena in Dark Torvus Bog
How to Obtain:This is only obtainable after you have defeated the Boost     
Guardian (who is literally a few feet from the Key). Once you have the      
Boost Ball, start Boosting up the half pipe, and you will eventually get the
Key in an upper ledge. You may hit the Dark Preeds, but either way just keep
trying.                                                                    

========================================
Dark Torvus Temple Key 2                                         
========================================
Found:Undertemple Access in Dark Torvus Bog
How to Obtain:This is one of the easiest Dark Temple Key's to miss because 
you wouldn't think it is even here, let alone where it is even exists. Once
you have defeated the Alpha Blogg and recovered the Gravity Boost, go back
to Hydrochamber Access. Right near a big spinning turbine is a ledge on top
of it, which you need to use your newly aquired Gravity Boost to get up to.
Up here there is a portal. Use it, and you will appear...right infront of 
the Dark Temple Key.                                                     

========================================
Dark Torvus Temple Key 3                                       
========================================
Found:Venemous Pond in Dark Torvus Bog
How to Obtain:You will appear at the top of this room when you access it   
from somewhere else. The Key is right in the open, but is nearly impossible
to obtain unless you roll through the nearby conviently located Morph Ball 
tunnel. You will appear at the other side of Venemous Pond, and from there 
it is possible to access a Grappple point, where you can swing over to the 
final Dark Torvus Key.                                                    

========================================
Ing Hive Temple Key 1                                         
========================================
Found:Culling Chamber in Ing Hive
How to Obtain:There is a Spider Ball track upon the right walls of the     
room. Spider Ball upon them when you have that powerup and follow the      
straightforward track around inside a glass tank. Break some blocks with  
your Bombs, then grab the Ing Hive Temple Key that you uncovered the       
pathway for.                                                               

========================================
Ing Hive Temple Key 2                                        
========================================
Found:Hive Gyro Chamber in Ing Hive
How to Obtain:This will be the last Ing Hive Key you obtain, but the game 
labels is as number 2. Anyways, use the Spider Ball technique to cling to
the big brown ball in the middle of the room. Climb to the top of the Spider
Ball surface, then sit on the red dot. Boost upwards and cling to a large  
magnetic ring. Boost to the other side, where you'll go through the final 
Ing Hive Key.                                                             

========================================
Ing Hive Temple Key 3                                         
========================================
Found:Aerial Training Site
How to Obtain:You can't get this key directly from the Aerial Training Site
as a force field blocks it. You have to go the other way around. The only 
way there is via Central Hive West Transport, which is just a big shaft with
Wall Jump surfaces. Wall Jump to the top, then deactivate the force field 
for your Key.                                                             

========================================
Sky Temple Key 1                                         
========================================
Found:Battleground in Dark Agon Wastes
How to Obtain:You need to enter this room via the top door. Its accessed 
in Doomed Entry. Once you've entered and are at the top of the room, if you
have the Annihilator Beam I suggest using it on one of the Beacons around 
the room to dispose of all the Warrior Ing quickly. Those Warrior Ing will 
make this Sky Temple Key a pain in the ass to obtain. Now, switch on the 
Dark Visor once they are killed. You will see invisible platforms moving 
about. Time your Space Jumps onto one another of the platforms, because if
you happen to fall you will have to start this allllll over again. Once    
you reach the last platform, Screw Attack all the way to the other side. Flip
on the Dark Visor again, and shoot the Flying Ing Cache. Once it has been  
exposed, kill it with a Charged Shot to have it release the Sky Temple Key.
Go grab it.                                                               

========================================
Sky Temple Key 2                                         
========================================
Found:Dark Oasis in Dark Agon Wastes
How to Obtain:Near the middle door of this room is a huge pile of Denzium  
just waiting to be destroyed. Go over to it and lay a Power Bomb to break it
all away. This will expose a small pool of dark water. Jump into it and    
turn on the Dark Visor and search around for another Flying Ing Cache. Once
you have found it, shoot it to expose it then Charge Beam it to death and  
grab the Sky Temple Key.                                                 

========================================
Sky Temple Key 3                                         
========================================
Found:Poisoned Bog in Dark Torvus Bog
How to Obtain:Drop into the dark waters in this room and as usual flip on  
the Dark Visor and search for the flying red spot. Once you find it, shoot
it to fully expose the Flying Ing Cache. Shoot it down to expose the Sky    
Temple Key.                                                              

========================================
Sky Temple Key 4                                         
========================================
Found:Dungeon in Dark Torvus Bog
How to Obtain:This Temple Key is a little tedious to get. Anyway's, when   
you first appear in the room, dive right into the dark waters, that's      
where the key is located. Now, you'll see a small hole you could fit through
but some monster is blocking your way. Aim up and shoot the Light Beacon to
make him move. Head under the small tunnel and up to the next sitting     
monster. Repeat this process with Lighting the Beacon again, and then you 
will reach a dead end. Bring up the Dark Visor and shoot the Flying Ing    
Cache for the Sky Temple Key.                                               

========================================
Sky Temple Key 5                                         
========================================
Found:Hive Entrance in Ing Hive
How to Obtain:The Hive Entrance looks exactly like the Sanctuary Entrance, 
destroyed bridge and all. Use the Screw Attack to cross the long gap and   
reach the other side. Once there, ride up the beam of light to the upper   
areas of the Hive Entrance. Once here, use the Screw Attack to go back to  
the other side. Once atop this very high ledge, swap on the Dark Visor and
find the Flying Ing Cache. Shoot it down with your weapons to claim the Sky 
Temple Key.                                                               

========================================
Sky Temple Key 6                                         
========================================
Found:Hive Dynamo Works in Ing Hive
How to Obtain:Goto the very end of the Spider Guardian's maze, and you will
find a Power Bomb door. Break it open and go through the portal. Now, go into
Morph Ball mode and Spider Ball up the nearby track. Stay at the red dot, 
and wait for the rising and lowering globe-like Spider Ball surface to be the
same level as you. Boost onto it. Find a red dot on this surface, and wait  
for the next Spider Ball globe surface to be aligned with you, then Boost 
onto it. Now, go onto the final red dot here and wait until your lined up
with the Spider Ball track on the side of the wall, then Boost over. With the
Dark Visor, find the Flying Ing Cache and shoot it down like we have several
times before.                                                              

========================================
Sky Temple Key 7                                         
========================================
Found:Ing Reliquary in Sky Temple Grounds
How to Obtain:You need the Light Suit to reach the Ing Reliquary. Its found
from Reliquary Access room, which is the Dark Aether version of the       
Communications Area. Anyways, its pretty simple in this room. Jump to the  
bottom, turn on the Dark Visor, and shoot down the seventh Flying Ing      
Cache.                                                                     

========================================
Sky Temple Key 8                                         
========================================
Found:Defiled Shrine in Sky Temple Grounds
How to Obtain:Its best if you use the Annihilator Beam on the nearby Light  
Beacon, which will effectively kill the nearby Warrior Ings. Um....that is
pretty much all there is to this room besides flipping on the Dark Visor 
and..once again...shooting down another Flying Ing Cache and grabbing its   
Key.                                                                    

========================================
Sky Temple Key 9                                         
========================================
Found:Accursed Lake in Sky Temple Grounds
How to Obtain:This room isn't hard to find, no worries. The room is pretty
tiny, so just flip on the Dark Visor and shoot down another Flying Ing    
Cache and jump for its Key. You want to avoid the Hunter Ing because they are
a super annoyence.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Welcome, finally, to the bulk of this FAQ, the actual Walkthrough of       
Metroid Prime 2:Echoes. I format the game in the Walkthrough pretty much   
like everyone else does....
----
Room Name
----

New Logbook Creature/Lore/Research Scan:XXXX
Expansion:XXXX

~Room information here~

That's pretty much how this works. Its simple, isn't it? Obviously, for the 
most part the Walkthrough appears like everyone else's. There isn't really 
many ways to compete the game. I will eventually sidetrack you for more    
Expansions, but those areas are Indented like so:
          ----
          Room Name
          -----
...just so you know "This part is optional". I will also post the shortest  
path back to where the "optional" route will meet back up with you if you 
opt to not take it. So, here we go!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                ~Mission 1:Losing All You Weapons....Again!~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:*/*****
Mission Objective:Its not really an objective...but I made this Mission    
like a half mission instead of a full mission. Anyways, this mission will 
take you through the first few rooms of the game, up to the point where     
the story gets deeper...and you lose your abilites for the umpteenth time...
sheesh Samus...                                                           

================================
Landing Site                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Samus's Gunship-Behind you from where you start. Hard
to miss her ship isn't it?

Save Station:Use Samus's Gunship, behind you from where you start, to Save  
your game.
Ammo Station:Use Samus's Gunship, behind you from where you start, to     
refill all of your Ammo.                                                 

You have offically started Metroid Prime 2! Much like the first game,     
the beginning areas are just to show you Samus's moves and abilities, then  
lose them. Begin off by turning around from where you start and Scanning    
Samus's Gunship. Space Jump ontop of the ship and save your game and refill
your health. Then, proceed forward through the room until you reach a large
webbing. Look up and Lock On to the green sac on it, and shoot the sac with
your Power Beam to make the webbing dissappear. Then, Jump up and go through
the door.                                                                  

================================
Hive Access Tunnel                
================================
Woo...creepy passage. There are a ton of wiggling plants lined over the    
walls, but don't worry about themas they can't hurt you. Head forward and   
to the left, and you'll find a big door with Violet text blocking your way. 
Scanning the door won't do anything to help you, and unfortunately, the    
other side is where we need to go. Head back to the door, but take a right 
and you will soon come to a big hole in the ground. Get near the hole to Jump
down it.                                                                  

================================
Hive Chamber A                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:GF Gate MK VI

Map Station:Near back exit, its the floating hologram, impossible to miss...

Its all smoky...and desolate....and quiet. Gives you a creepy feeling      
doesn't this room? There are a ton of things for you to Scan within this    
room, so if you like Scanning things feel free to Scan away. Head        
forwards until a big iron gate blocks your way. There is a Scan console    
nearby, so Scan it. That will release two locks above the door. Lock On    
to both of them and shoot them away, which will open the gate. Keep going  
forwards through the thin passage until a really big block, which is actually
a giant door, is blocking your way. A Scan will indicate that a Scan console
must be activated to open the door. Look on the right wall until you see   
an indent in it, and that will have the Scan console. Scan it to open the   
door. Continue on to this next area. There are some intresting scans about  
the Federation Troopers that were in this area, so Scan if you want to.    
There is a floating hologram nearby, so step in it. It is the Map Station  
for this region of the Temple Grounds. You'll download the map. Once that  
is all done with, continue out of this room via the door which was near the
Map Station.                                                              

================================
Hive Tunnel                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Worker Splinter

This room is very tiny, but you will recive a shocking surprise once       
entering it. Several Federation Troops are dangling upside down in the room.
Creepy. The translucent enemies on the sides of the room are Worker       
Splinters, and they are a new Scan. Continue on through this room once your
finished Scanning.                                                      

================================
Command Chamber                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:SPC B. Reevs
Logbook Lore Scan:GSGT C. Benet
Logbook Research Scan:Bomb Slot
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Trooper

This is a pretty large room. Right as you enter the room, Scan the nearby   
fallen Federation Trooper for a new Logbook Scan. There are several Worker 
Splinters around this area, and it is best if you kill them so they will  
not get in your way and cause damage. Once everything is dead, roll into   
Morph Ball mode (The X Button), and head towards the back of the room.     
You'll need to do so to get under a big door lock, which is going to be    
opened soon. Roll under, get out of Morph Ball mode, and shoot down whatever
Worker Splinters are still in the room. Get back into the Morph Ball and find
a tunnel in the room.                                                      

The tunnel is near the back of the room, and your Morph Ball is just tiny   
enough to squeak through. Roll through the tunnel until you reach a steel   
gating. Lay a Bomb with the A button to break open the bars. Continue     
through the tunnel until your in a rounded room. Roll to the back of it,   
and unmorph. Scan anything else here, as another thing here is one more    
Logbook Scan, and a Bomb Slot it the other. The Bomb Slot is what we are   
looking for. Get into Morph Ball mode and roll near the cylindrical      
device. Do a Bomb Jump by laying a Bomb, then being on the explosion to be 
popped in the air, which will put you inside the Bomb Slot. Lay a Bomb here
to activate the Slot.                                                       

The Bomb Slot's power now will activate a Scan console back in the previous 
area. Roll back through the previous tunnel, and under the door gates until
you reach the Scan console. Along the way, Dark Troopers will rise up and  
start attacking you. 1 Charge Beam shot will kill them, but their damage is 
really insignificant so don't waste your time. They are also a new Logbook
Scan too! Scan the console to activate the big door gate, which will unlock
and reveal several more Dark Troopers. Shoot them all out with Missiles, and
continue on through the passage until you reach a door leading to the next 
room.                                                                     

================================
Hive Storage                
================================
There isn't much in this simple room. Just go around the corners and through
the next door. If your low on Energy, break some of the crates for more    
Energy.                                                                   

================================
Hive Chamber B                
================================
Enter through the door, and you'll witness a cutscene. The doors will lock 
and something will enter a dark vortex right infront of you. Wait....that  
mysterious figure looks just like Samus! It will head into the dark vortex.
Once you regain control of Samus again, head straight and into the Dark    
Portal.                                                                 

You'll be transported to a weird, mysterious dark place. The shadowy Samus  
is gathering Phazon for her suit...and Samus just gawks like the woman she 
is at this copycat. The shadowy figure will then point her gun at Samus, and
take a shot. A nearby Crystal is destroyed, and the safe Bubble sheild    
is slowly closing in on Samus. Just then, a ton of dark creatures jump down
to Samus's position and tackle her, just as the bubble is gone and she is   
exposed to the atmosphere. Apparently, its quite lethal. The dark figures 
all tackle Samus, and she escapes through the Light Portal.              

You will regain control of Samus once more, and this time you will recieve 
critical news. Your Missile Launcher, Morph Ball Bombs, Power Bomb Generator,
Grapple Beam, Boost Ability, Space Jump Boots, and Spider Ball Abilities   
have been stolen from your Varia Suit. Lovely. We've lost all of our      
abilities...again. Continue through the rest of the short room and through 
the next door.

***MISSION 1:COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
               ~Mission 2:Explosion Commotion!-Getting Missiles~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:*/*****
Mission Objective:You've recently lost nearly all of your abilities and   
items. Great. Its time to start recovering them and then some one by one.   
We will start off by collecting the Missile Launcher. Its not a very hard   
mission, and a relatively safe one too. There are few enemies, and they all 
take several shots to kill. You won't be seeing any Save Stations along the 
way, but that's not a problem. Its time to get back what rightfully belongs
to us!                                                                    

================================
Hive Chamber C                
================================
There will be several Dark Troopers attacking you the instant you enter the 
room. Kill them all so you will clear the path to several crates blocking a 
door. Destroy the crates with your Charge Beam, which reveals a door. Enter 
the door now.                                                              

================================
Hive Save Station                
================================
Phew...about time we found a Save Station! Gladly Save your game inside and 
restore your Energy to full.                                               

================================
Hive Chamber C                
================================
Were near above ground soon....so from here simply head out the last       
remaining door we haven't gone through yet. It happens to be right of the   
Save Station.                                                              

================================
Hive Transport Area                
================================
Our first elevator! It appears to be completely inactive...but not to worry!
Right near the elevator is a Scan console, so Scan that. It will make a    
hologram appear on the elevator. Step in it to make the elevator active.   
When you get to the top, you have two paths to choose. The right one leads 
to the exact same Violet translator door we had to bypass earlier. There    
is still nothing you can do about it. From here, just take a left out the  
door.                                                                      

================================
Industrial Site                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:GF Bridge 
Logbook Creature Scan:Splinter
Logbook Creature Scan:Green Kralee

As soon as you enter the room you will find another of those stupid MK VI  
Federation gates blocking your way. As with the previous gate, Scan the    
nearby Scan console to make 2 locks above the gate to disengage. Destroy   
them with your Power Beam pretty easily to open the gate. Once its done, walk
through.                                                                   

Now, go straight and you will see a Scan console on the ground. Scan it, and
it will open the next pathway by moving a huge Federation Crate elsewhere. 
Wonder where....

We've now, offically, entered the Temple Grounds. Seems desolate, windy,    
alone...doesn't it? That's not really the point right now. Start off by     
heading to the right, and you will find some ledges that extend out of the  
wall and wrap around the room, going higher as they go. Get on these       
platforms and start climbing them. You'll see what looks like a beetle with
a green crystal in it. Scan this creature. Once you approach, several      
Splinters will attack you out of nowhere nearby. Kill them all quickly, then
continue up the platforms.                                                

Continue walking up the ledges until you reach a dead end. You'll see the big
GF Bridge right ahead of you, so Scan that too. Nearby the bridge is yet    
another Scan console. This will make 2 more locks above the bridge to open, 
completely exposed. Aim upwards, Lock on, and shoot the 2 locks to bring   
down the bridge for access. Go across it, and through the door just over the
hill.                                                                      

================================
Collapsed Tunnel                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:PFC M. Veroni

As soon as you enter this short tunnel, be sure to Scan the dead Trooper to 
the right of the Morph Ball hole. Once you do, go into Morph Ball mode    
and roll through the tunnel. Once you get out on the other side, go through
the next door.                                                             

================================
Temple Assembly Site                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Splinter Cocoon

Whooo! Apparently there's some construction in this area. Lot's of crates, 
crates, gates, so much. Head straight until you see brown circles on the  
wall. These are Splinter Cocoon's. Get too close and they will pop out to 
attack you! So, its best to Scan them from a distance. Keep heading forward
until you are blocked by another Violet door. Near it you should find yet  
another Scan console. This will lower down the Federation crate we moved   
earlier, but not all the way down as the rope gets snagged. Use a few Power 
beam shots on the snag and it will break off, lowering the crate. Use it as a
bridge to the next door.                                        

================================
Dynamo Chamber                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:GF Gate MK VII

This isn't a really big room. Just head through the room until your path is
blocked by a big gate, like before. This gate is a new Scan so I advise you 
do so. Nearby is a large Scan console, so Scan it to open the gate and make 
a path to the next room.                                                   

================================
Communication Area                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:PFC L. Brouda

Entering this room you will find a large satillite dish. Continue along the 
very linear pathway until you find a Scan console. Scan it and you will    
transmit an emergency broadcast to some reciver. Of course, it doesn't work.
Seems like your stranded on Aether....oh well. Near the Scan console is a  
falled Trooper, so pick up his Scan. Continue along the path, and through to
the next room.                                                            

================================
Trooper Security Station                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Growler Class Turret
Logbook Lore Scan:SPC M. Angseth

Get inside this new room and you will see a Turret on the ceiling start   
attacking a swarm of Splinters. Scan the Turret for a new Scan, then get  
near the gate which bars your way. Get into the Morph Ball tunnel nearby   
and roll through. You will emerge near a fallen Trooper, which you can get
a new Scan for, and a Scan console. Scan the console to activate the gate. 
The gate has a malfunction, and will only partially open, then close over  
and over again. Get into Morph Ball mode and roll through the gate when it 
is open, then proceed to the back end of the room and through the door back 
there.

Map Station:Inside the Federation GFS Try Ship
Logbook Lore Scan:PFC I. Crany
Logbook Lore Scan:SPC F.Triplette
Logbook Lore Scan:PFC G. Haley
Logbook Lore Scan:PFC S. Milligan
Logbook Lore Scan:LPCL J. Brode
Logbook Lore Scan:CAPT A Exeter
Logbook Research Scan:GFS Try
Logbook Research Scan:Kinetic Orb Cannon
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Splinter

Lotsa Scans in here...you'll get your chance soon. Enter the room and      
continue straight until a cutscene occurs where Samus watches a video of   
what happened to the Federation Troopers and how they died. After the long 
cutscene, you will be standing near a yellow crate. Use the Charge Beam to 
break it open, and you finally have revealed the Missile Launcher! Go grab 
it! ***Missile Launcher Aquired!***                                       

Let's just wrap up this room. Right after grabbing the Missile Launcher, you
will be attacked by several Dark Splinters. They take some firepower to take
out, so Scan them then Charge Beam them to death. You don't need to fight   
them but you may as well.                                                 

Ready for excessive Scanning? Scan the large, impossible to miss Federation 
Ship GFS Try. There are six Federarion Trooper bodies strewn across the   
room, so search along the ground and on ledges for those six Scans. When you
have Scanned everything in the above list into your Logbook, go into the   
GFS Try ship via the open hatch on the ground. Head towards the back of the 
ship, and then Scan the door. It will open, and you will be able to enter   
the Map Station. Do so.                                                   

After downloading the Map, head back into the ship, and out the large ledge 
to the right, and jump to a nearby ledge. Continue along the path until you
reach a small indent in the ground. There is a Scan console nearby. Scan the 
indent as its the Kinetic Orb Cannon, the Scan the console to activate the  
cannon. Get into Morph Ball mode and get into the hologram the be launched  
over to the other side of the room. From here, were almost done. Simple get
out of Morph Ball mode and head over another ledge and shoot a Missile at 
the red door. Enter through it.                                           

***MISSION 2:COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
           ~Mission 3:Samus is teh Bomb-Getting Morph Ball Bombs~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:**/*****
Mission Objective:Its time we really got back the critcal items, all back  
from those stupid shadowy creatures. Its a long mission, with 2 Boss Battles
along the way. The story will also unfold and you'll find out just what    
has happened to this cracked up planet. Its up to Samus Aran to once again  
restore peace. Now, who's ready to reclaim our Morph Ball Bombs? Let's do   
this thing!                                                               

================================
Sacred Bridge                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:PFC E. Denys
Logbook Creatures Scan:War Wasp

Once you enter this room using the previous strategy from the GMFC Compound,
simply enter the room until you reach a dead end. Look to the left and right
and you will see holes in the wall. The left one is blocked by a fallen    
Federation Trooper, and is good for another Scan. Morph Ball through the   
other hole to fall to the bottom. Several War Wasps will come out of nowhere
and will start attacking you. Scan them, then kill them all. High up on the 
other ledge is a Scan console. Scan it to activate the Kinetic Orb Cannon   
nearby. Morph Ball into it to get shot up onto the ledge near the door, then
proceed through.                                                           

================================
Sacred Path                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:War Wasp Hive

Pretty spacious room huh? On the outlines of the room you will find several 
hives, which are good for a Scan. If you get too close, several War Wasps   
will appear and starting attacking you, so keep your distance. There doesn't
seem like a lot because the far ledges are too high up to Jump to, but there
is a Scan panel hidden in a small alcove in the wall. Its hard to describe 
its location, so just keep searching until you find it. Scan it, and a     
Kinetic Orb Cannon nearby will activate. Get inside it and you will be shot 
to a wall...then fall down. You made no progress. Yay. The wall you just   
bumped into can be broken off. Shoot a Missile into it to crack it further, 
then get back in the Kinetic Orb Cannon. You'll blast through it with     
ease. When you get down again, you'll land near a tunnel. Roll through it  
and you will eventually roll out near a door. Go through this next door    
without falling off the ledge.                                           

================================
Temple Transport A                
================================
Scan the nearby Scan console to activate the hologram for the elevator. Step
inside it.                                                               

================================
Temple Transport A                
================================
After exiting the elevator, simply jump over some platforms and out the far 
door of the room.                                                          

================================
Transport A Access               
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Sandbat

As soon as you enter the room a huge swarm of Sandbats will fly out of a  
hole and for the exit. You can try to Scan them, but I find it near       
impossible. Just avoid them, you'll get the Scan not too far from now      
anyways. Head along the left wall until you see a hole in it. Use the Morph
Ball to squeeze through and to find a Save Station. Save your game, then   
exit out of the small alcove. Go through the other door in the room you    
haven't used yet.                                                        

================================
Temple Sanctuary                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Alpha Splinter
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Alpha Splinter
===BOSS BATTLE!===
-6 Dark Splinter Pack
-Alpha Splinter
-Dark Alpha Splinter

Enter into the center of this room, and force fields will apear around you,
preventing your depearture. 6 Dark Splinter will hatch out and drop to the 
floor, and you will begin this Boss Battle. Kill each Dark Splinter. They  
aren't very hard. One Charge Beam and a few Power Beam shots disposes of  
one Dark Splinter. Keep Strafing around to avoid being rammed by them. Also,
keep an eye on the radar so you don't Strafe into one, as that's bad unless
you wanna lose Energy. Quickly kill all six Dark Splinters without taking   
much damage.                                                              

After defeating all six Splinters, a huge Splinter will hatch out of a large
cocoon and drop down. This is an Alpha Splinter, the only one in the game. 
be sure to Scan him! This is where you will take a ton of damage. Feed all 
of your Missiles into him, then keep using Charge Beams. Every five or so   
seconds he will Jump at you, then leap back to the center of the arena.    
This attack deals a lot of damage! Its hard to keep Strafing and avoid him. 
He is quite unpredictible. Once you've dealt enough damage, a large vortex 
will appear.                                                             

Dark energy will flow from the vortex, right into the Alpha Splinter. It will
then be transformed into a Dark Alpha Splinter, also a 1-Time-Scan. It will 
attack just like a normal Dark Splinter, except with a new attack. It will 
gather some green energy, then spit it at you. It will then jump at you,   
then turn around and repeat this process. Keep your distance, and keep     
Strafing. You shouldn't take any damage, or at least little damage in this  
part. Simply depleat his health bar and he will finally die. A weird blue  
ball of energy will come out of him. Pick it up.                          

***Unknown Technology Aquired!***

Unknown eh? Oh well. We'll find out what is is shortly. Apparently this item
isn't a bad thing, nor useful as of now. It didn't do anything to your Varia
Suit, so let's not worry. All the exits have been sealed up except one. Go 
through that door.                                                        

================================
Controller Transport                
================================
Yet another elevator. Scan the hard to miss Scan console to activate the  
hologram. Step inside to ride the transport to the top, then proceed out the
door there.                                                               

================================
Main Energy Controller                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Origins
Logbook Research Scan:Energy Controller
Logbook Research Scan:U-Mos

Step inside the room to have a conversation with the last remaining Luminoth,
U-Mos. He'll tell you the story about what the **** has happened to this   
planet in detail. Apparently, the Ing were born when a Phazon Meteor crashed
into the planet. And they have killed off most of the Luminoth, with a few  
remaining under the watch of U-Mos.                                         

After the conversation, your Energy will be fully healed, and you will     
recieve the Violet translator. You can now Scan any Violet colored holograms
to open doors and get Logbook Scans. Let's test that out right now hmm?    
Nearby the door back to the elevator is a Violet hologram. Scan it and it'll
dissappear. Also, Scan U-Mos and the Energy Controller behind him, then go 
back to the elevator.                                                    

================================
Controller Transport                
================================
Rush into the elevator hologram and ride it down, then head out the door   
once there.                                                               

================================
Temple Sanctuary                
================================
All the doors are locked by colored holograms...except one of those is    
Violet, and were able to open those doors. Scan it to lower it, then exit 
out the door behind it.                                                  

================================
Transport B Access                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Lightflyer

This is a pretty short room. The flying pieces of light are enemies, and   
will hurt you. Scan them, then proceed through the room and outside the    
other door.                                                              

================================
Temple Transport B                
================================
We've done this many times over. Scan the nearby console then ride the    
elevator down.                                                            

================================
Temple Transport B                
================================
Walk out the door.                                                       

================================
Temple Assembly Site                
================================
War Wasps have now appeared in this room. Ignore them as they won't cause  
much damage. Head straight for the door on the other side of the room.     
Before you get there you should see a Red Missile Door on the right side.  
Break it open.                                                            

================================
Storage Cavern B                
================================
Energy Tank:Sitting in the middle of the room

This is a very tiny room. The only purpose is to hold that ENERGY TANK. Grab
it.                                                                       

================================
Temple Assembly Site                
================================
With an extra 100 Energy under our belts, we'll be able to survive longer. 
Go right from the Storage Cavern B door, avoiding the Dark Splinters along 
the way.

================================
Logbook Lore Scan:J-Fme's Testament

Near the middle of the room is a large Violet translator door. Scan it to  
make it lower, then Scan the dead Luminoth near where it was, then head out 
the door.                                                                 

================================
Agon Transport Access                
================================
Its a pretty cool room...being a long glass cylinder...but there's nothing 
of intrest in here, so ignore it and move on to the end of it avoiding the 
lone Kralee.                                                             

================================
Transport to Agon Wastes                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Our Heritage
Missile Expansion:Behind some webling near the elevator

A pretty small room. First off, Scan the nearby Scan console to make the   
hologram for the elevator active. Don't go in it just yet. Head to the left
of the elevator until you see some webbing in the wall, much like you saw   
near the beginning of the game. Destroy the green sac to get rid of the    
webbing, revealing the path to a MISSILE EXPANSION. Head to the left a little
more, near the ledge to nowhere, and you should see a spinnning Luminoth   
Lore projector. Scan the Lore, then head for the elevator. If you are the  
suicidal type, Jump off the ledge to lose 10 Energy as much as you want. I  
don't care :)

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

================================
Transport to Temple Grounds                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Agon Bearerpod

Nothing here. Near the back walls are spiky plants. They won't hurt, but 
its a Scan. Go out the door.                                             

================================
Plaza Access                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Sandgrass
Logbook Creatures Scan:Lumite

This is another tiny room. There are some new enemies on the walls for more 
Scans. Also, the grass in this room is another Scan. Exit out by the far   
door.                                                                   

================================
Mining Plaza                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Sandigger

Walk into the newer Agon Wastes. What a desolate, empty desert. You'll be   
spending some time here, so get used to it. Walk forwards and a Sandigger 
will emerge from the ground. Avoid him, and run for the ledge straight    
ahead. Get up on it, and shoot off the Missile Gate, then enter the door   
that's revealed.                                                           

================================
Save Station A                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Blueroot Tree

Head forwards into the room to find a Save Station to save your game and   
restore your energy. Once that is done, get on the ledges behind the Save  
Station and find a small hole in the wall. Get into Morph Ball mode and    
roll through. You'll be on the sandstream running in this room, so hold the 
direction opposite the stream is going. Eventually you will get out onto   
the other side. Get out of the Morph Ball and search around with the Scan  
Visor for a blue tree which is a new Scan. Once your done, roll out to the 
other end again and out the door.                                         

================================
Mining Plaza                
================================
From the Save Station's A door, head right now. Look up in the sky for    
Sandbats. If you missed their Scan earlier (And I'm sure you did), Scan them
now. A Sandigger will appear out of the ground. Ignore him if you can, or  
shoot Charge Beams in his face. Go over to the far edge and start heading  
up the series of platforms on the wall, continually going higher. Keep    
going until you come to a gap you can't jump across. There should be a tall
pillar nearby. Break its base with a Missile to form a bridge. Head across 
it and keep going. Eventually you will shortly come to another gap, with   
another pillar. Do what you did before and break it with a Missile for     
another bridge. Continue to follow the linear path until you reach a short 
gap with the next platform a bit lower than you. You can jump to it. Do so 
and head out the nearby door.                                            

================================
Mining Station Access                
================================
There is some stuff in here..but we can't reach it yet. Continue on through 
to the next door.                                                        

================================
Mining Station A                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Brizgee
Logbook Creatures Scan:Pirate Trooper

Once you enter this room you will see several Space Pirates walking around.
They will notice you and you will get attacked. Hit the Space Pirates with 
some Charge Beams, but remember to Scan one of them first. Head over to the 
far ledges of the room and start climbing up them. Eventually you will see a
small creature moving in circles. Scan him. If you wanna kill him, shoot the
Brizgee with a Missile then 3 Power Beam shots. Anyways, jump up the      
platforms and you will have to cross the middle of the room. Use the       
platforms given to you to cross. Keep going to the left until you reach a   
Missile door. Break the door open with...a Missile! Once its open, proceed  
through it.                                                             

================================
Temple Access                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Shriekbat

This room is pretty tiny. Go through and Scan one of the Shriekbats on the 
ceilings before they attack you and suicide themselves. Either way, exit 
through the other door.                                                 

================================
Agon Temple                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Alpha Sandigger
Logbook Creatures Scan:Bomb Guardian
===BOSS BATTLE!===
-Bomb Guardian

Hmm...the Agon Temple. More like a colosseum, without the tall walls.      
Well, start off by going into the center of the Temple. The doors will all 
lock and you'll be stuck here. A Sandigger will pop out of the ground. He's
an Alpha Sandigger, the only one. He looks like a normal one though...but  
don't be decieved. After about 10 seconds, the Ing will possess the        
Alpha Sandigger and turn it into the Bomb Guardian. Scan him too. The Bomb 
Guardian will continually spew Morph Ball Bombs from its shiny pink tail.  
It will occasionally just decide to ram you because it can. It can also send
a bazzilion Bomb around the field too. Bombs deal 10 damage to you, and    
touching the Bomb Guardian does about 25 damage to you. In order to       
actually hurt the Bomb Guardian, you must stun it first. Do so by Locking  
On to its pink tail, then Strafing behind it. Use a Charge Beam shot on its 
tail. If one hits him, follow up with a few Power Beam shots to it and he   
will be stunned. If Charge Beams don't work, use some Missiles. When he's   
stunned, Strafe around to his head, and Lock On to it. Pop a Charge Beam   
for the most effectiveness to his health bar. The Bomb Guardian will get  
pissed, then the battle will resume like normal. It never gets any harder. 
Simply repeat the above steps 3-4 more times until the Bomb Guardian finally
dies. He will leave behind the Morph Ball Bombs, so grab them.             
***MORPH BALL BOMBS AQUIRED!***
Now, use your Bombs to break the large Blue gates blocking your exit. Go    
through the only Blue Door in this room you haven't been through yet. Ready 
for the next Mission?
***MISSION 3:COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                   ~Mission 4:To the Space Jump Boots!~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:**/*****
Mission Objective:Its not a very long mission to be honest. You will now   
first venture into Dark Aether, and your life will officially be a living  
hell. Another upgrade, with another boss. Hopefully your ready for this bad
guardian!                                                                 

================================
Controller Access                
================================
Boring room. Put the Bomb in the slot and turn it all around! You'll find out
when it happens...                                                         

================================
Agon Energy Controller                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Saving Aether

Near the back left corner of the Agon Energy Controller you will find an   
orange hologram. Scan it to begin a cutscene. The Sentinal of this Temple   
died in war, blah blah blah we get the deal. He died. Woo hoo. He will give 
you the Amber translation files once done with his stupid speech. Before   
leaving the room, check behind the walls for an Amber hologram for a new  
Logbook Scan.                                                          

================================
Controller Access                
================================
Just do what you did several seconds ago and Bomb to lone Slot in here and  
proceed back to....                                                       

================================
Agon Temple                
================================
Nothing new has appeared here. Head all the way to the other side and through
the door there.                                                           

================================
Temple Access                
================================
Once again, there isn't anything of intrest. Proceed through back to Mining 
Station A.                                                                

================================
Mining Station A                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Cataclysm

When you re-enter this room again, turn slightly to the left until you see  
a metal wiring overpass above you. There is a spinning Lore in there, and  
you can Scan it safely from your point, so do so. Head to the left from here
until you reach an Amber door between sand waterfalls (Sandfalls?). Go inside
the door.                                                               

================================
Sand Cache                
================================
Missile Expansion:Sitting in the middle of the room

Enter the tiny room and grab the MISSILE EXPANSION sitting there in the     
middle of the room.                                                      

The next few rooms are a side-track mission to get an Energy Tank and the 
Map of Agon Wastes. Both will definately come in handy later. If you don't  
feel like getting these items, skip the indented section and goto the Mining
Station A description.                                                   

================================
Mining Station A                
================================
Not taking Side-Mission:By entering this room from Sand Cache, check your   
Map. There should be a door right below yours. Drop down off the ledge and 
go inside the nearby door. This will lead to Portal Access A. This room is  
covered after the indented section, so just skip down a few paagraphs to  
continue.                                                              

Taking Side-Mission:From Sand Cache, enter this room and fall to the bottom. 
We've been through this room before, and that being Mining Station Access. 
Look for the opening at the bottom of the room,then walk through to the    
next room.                                                                  

       ================================
       Mining Station Access                
       ================================
       Energy Tank:Upper area of room accessed by Kinetic Orb Cannon
       
       Start off by naturally entering Morph Ball mode and rolling to the  
       middle of the tunnel. Break the Sandstone block with a Bomb to drop 
       down to a Kinectic Orb Cannon. It will launch you up to a higher area
       where an ENERGY TANK is just sitting there for you to obtain. Grab it
       then fall back down to the bottom. Roll out of the room via the left 
       side path.                                                      

       ================================
       Mining Plaza                
       ================================
       Logbook Lore Scan:Paradise

       Walk straight ahead, and across the nearby rock bridge to pretty    
       much the center of this room. You will find a Luminoth Lore Projector
       on a wall, so Scan that for a new Logbook Scan. Next, drop down to the
       bottom of the room and find a large Amber translator door. Scan it   
       open to reveal a hole behind it. Roll into the hole and follow it    
       through to...                                                       

       ================================
       Agon Map Station                
       ================================
       Walk into the Map Station and step into the hologram to download the 
       Map for the Agon Wastes region. Nicely done. Seems like there's a    
       huge section just waiting to be explored, right? Exit out of this    
       room.                                                              

       ================================
       Mining Plaza                
       ================================
       Now we get to re-climb to the top of this room again! What fun! Do it
       like before by Jumping around the walls of the room, then across the 
       several bridges you made a little while ago. Once you have crosses   
       the few bridges and gaps, you will finally reach the door. Go through
       it, duh!                                                           

       ================================
       Mining Station Access               
       ================================
       Nothing of intrest. Just roll through.                              

       ================================
       Mining Station A                
       ================================
       You've reached back where you started-Mining Station A. Go forwards 
       and jump onto the only ledge you can reach. The first door you come to
       leads to Portal Access A, the room we want. It is surrounded by some 
       blue plants. Hard to miss.                                          

================================
Portal Access A                
================================
Missile Expansion:Behind the dead Luminoth on the other side of the room past
the cannons.                                                            

A short, simple room. Start off by going into Morph Ball mode and rolling   
into the Kinetic Orb Cannon. You will get flung up to the higher area of the
structure, where you just need to roll through a tunnel to fall down to the 
other side of the room. Once there, roll behind the dead Luminoth warrior to
pick up a MISSILE EXPANSION. Once your all done, exit through the door near
the Luminoth.                                                            

================================
Portal Terminal                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Light of Aether
Logbook Research Scan:Dark Portal
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Pirate Trooper
Logbook Creatures Scan:Pillbug

Once you enter the room, the music will change to the Pirate ambush music. 
Two Space Pirates will be walking around the center of the Portal Terminal. 
Kill them both off with a few Charge Power Beam shots. A few more Pirate   
Troopers will drop down, then the Ing will appear out of nowhere and possess
them, turning into Dark Pirate Troopers. They are a new Scan, so Scan them 
for sure. They are much stronger than usual Pirate Troopers, so try to     
keep your distance. Once they are all dead, a Bomb Slot will activate near  
the rear of the room. First before doing so, go to the left side of the ramp
to find a Luminoth Lore projector. Scan the Amber hologram for a new Logbook
Scan.                                                                     

Next off, go back to the front of the ramp and proceed up it. You will find a
strange looking device, and right near it the Bomb Slot. Activate the Bomb 
Slot, and that will trigger the activation of a nearby elevator machine.   
Put your Morph Ball into the machine and ride upwards. You will appear on a 
small path. Roll through until your path is blocked, then place a Bomb. Some
sand will turn a mirror around, and will create a platform to the other side
of the room where you will need to repeat this process for another mirror to
get locked into place, then the final mirror won't be too far away. Once you
have activated all three mirrors, a powerful beam of light will shine through
and hit the machine. The machine, which is a Portal Device, is now active. 
Before going to it, look at the right side of the room for some moving     
enemies, which are Pillbugs. Scan them, then head for the Portal Device and 
Scan the red button on its lower left side. A Dark Portal, worth another    
Logbook Scan will appear. Walk inside of it to really be transported to Dark 
Aether for the first time.

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

================================
Portal Site                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Light Crystal
Logbook Research Scan:Light Beacon
Logbook Research Scan:Bladepod
Logbook Research Scan:Light Portal

Welcome to your first offical expedition upon Dark Aether! For some more   
Logbook Scans, Scan the little red button on the Portal Device to create a 
Portal to Light Aether. Don't go in it, but Scan it. ALl over this room you
can find several kinda tall black storage containers strewn around the room.
Also, its time to bring on the bad news. Dark Aether's atmosphere is       
basically a rain of hell upon your Suit. When your not in the protective   
Light Sheilds, you will take a ton of damage. Not good. Scan the Crystals   
and Beacons that are creating those fields. Walk quickly and fall from your
ledge down to a Light Crystal zone. You will see a small ball of light     
slightly ahead.                                                            

That is a Light Beacon. It has the same effects as a Light Crystal, but must
be hit by any weapon to function for about 20 seconds. Hit the Beacon then
run for it. When your there, turn to the left and run for the Bomb Slot    
nearby in another protective Light Shield. Activate the Bomb Slot, which   
will raise a piece of the wall here, and in the same place on Aether. Nice.
Proceed through the door.                                                 

================================
Crossroads                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Inglet

Run through this room quickly, activating all Light Beacons to sheild you  
when you see them. Small black blobs sometimes form into Inglets, and    
annoying enemy who likes to constantly hurt you. That bastard! Run through 
without too much damage.                                                  

================================
Save Station 2                
================================
Its a long way to the actual Save Station. Since your gonna get your Energy
back anyways, just quickly run through the enemies and atmosphere until you
reach the Save Station. Save your game of course and then proceed out the  
nearby door.                                                              

================================
Duelling Range                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Lightbringer
Logbook Creatures Scan:Warrior Ing

Head into the room and shoot the Light Beacon quickly to avoid a lot of    
damage. Turn left, and you will see an open range with a Light Crystal     
field on it. Quickly run over there, and you will be confronted with a     
Warrior Ing. Get the new Scan, then I suggest running away. He is very    
strong and your weapons won't cause much damage. Keep running straight     
and up around the platforms around the room. This room is very similar to 
Mining Plaza. There are several small creatures making Light fields all on 
their own. They are a new Scan, Lightbringers, and are impossible to      
obtain after leaving this room. So Scan now! Exit out the very top door of 
the room.                                                                 

================================
Junction Site                
================================
Nothing here. Go out the other side of the room.

Logbook Creatures Scan:Jump Guardian

***BOSS BATTLE!***
Jump Guardian

Now for the finale of the fourth mission, the Jump Guardian. Get into the  
Light Crystal field in the middle of the room, and the battle will begin.   
The Jump Guardian isn't very nice, but plays like an ordinary Warrior Ing 
with the power to jump high. Whenever it jumps form a high height, a large
shockwave will get produced and deals some damage to you, so jump over it.  
Right before jumping, the Jump Guardian is invulnerable. Once the Jump     
Guardian is down to about 1/4th of his life, he will be jumping around a ton,
but won't produce shockwaves. This will get very annoying, but be patient.  
Other then that just keep blasting him with Charge Beam shots until he     
'splodes. Grab the Space Jump Boots that appear after the defeat of the    
Jump Guardian.                                        
***SPACE JUMP BOOTS AQUIRED!***

Our job for now is done here on Dark Aether. Space Jump onto the high      
platform near the Light Crystal and you'll find a door on the left. Go     
through it. However, before doing so let's make our life easier for a little
while. Go around the platforms quickly to reach the top of the room. You may
think you have reached dead ends, but your Space Jump can reach high ledges.
Go through the top door now.                                              

***MISSION 4:COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
              ~Mission 5:The Dark Hunter Hides the Dark Beam~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:***/*****
Mission Objective:Time to get a new Beam! Its a long winding journey, as    
you would expect. You will only see one whopping Save Station on this      
trek. Lucky you. Conserve your Energy, because it is finally time to raid the
Space Pirate base!                                                         

================================
Dark Agon Temple Access                
================================
A simple room. Make your way to the other side of the room. You may get stuck
by some invisible barrier. Its just a plant. Simply jump over it incase that
happens to you.                                                           

================================
Dark Agon Temple                
================================
Wow. Spacious room resembling....! Agon Temple? The big bad boss of Dark Agon
Wastes is in this room, but in order to access him you need to collect 3 Dark
Temple Keys. Aww....well, Scanning the podium infront of you tells you that 
front off. Head left quickly, avoiding too much damage and through the next 
door you will find.                                                      

================================
Trial Tunnel                
================================
Dark Agon Temple Key 3:Sitting there in this very tiny room

Trial Tunnel is the smallest room in the Metroid Prime series. Seriously,  
as soon as you enter the room your looking at what your supposed to obtain. 
Grab DARK AGON TEMPLE KEY 3. Now, we only need 2 Keys to open the Temple.   
Go back to Dark Agon Temple.                                                

================================
Dark Agon Temple                
================================
There is still nothing of intrest here. Ignore the Temple and proceed back to
Dark Agon Temple Access.                                                   

================================
Dark Agon Temple Access                
================================
Head through to Judgement Pit.                                              

================================
Judgement Pit                
================================
Jump down to the bottom of the room, then back up the nearby ledge. Go     
through the first blue door you come by.                                   

================================
Portal Access                
================================
There's no Light Crystals here. Your taking tons of damage quickly, so we 
need to run through. Charge up your Power Beam, then fire it at the       
Lightflyer. He will die and produce a temperory Light shield for about 10   
seconds. Run through, then out the door across on the other side of the    
platforms.                                                                

================================
Portal Site                
================================
As soon as you enter this room several Dark Pirate Troopers will attack you.
You will take too much damage, and too fast. Quickly Space Jump up the     
platform that leads to the Portal Device, and activate via Scanning the red 
button. Jump through the portal!                                           

================================
Portal Terminal                
================================
As soon as you re-appear on Light Aether, three more normal Pirate Troopers 
will appear and start trying to hurt you. Morph Ball through them towards  
the back left of the room. There was a gate here, but we moved it when we 
were on Dark Aether. Let's not think how on earth that happened, and just   
go through the door.                                                      

================================
Transport Center                
================================
Missile Expansion:Activate the Bomb Slot to lower the gate, which will reveal
the Expansion.                                                             

Enter this room and you'll see a half-pipe type structure. You can't do    
anything with it so forget about it. Activate the Bomb Slot with a Bomb to 
lower the nearby gate, which will reveal a path to a MISSILE EXPANSION. It
also reveals a door. This door leads to Save Station A. I highly reccomend 
you use it. If you do, roll through the tunnel near the actual Save Station
and through the door back to this room. After that head bnack through to   
Portal Terminal.                                                          

================================
Portal Terminal                
================================
There's only one Space Pirate patrolling this room, but will call down     
several more if he spots you. As long as you stay close to the wall he will
never see you. Go to the only other door in this room, which leads to Portal
Access A.                                                                 

================================
Portal Access A                
================================
Nothing new will ever appear here...so hop in the Kinetic Orb Cannon and go 
through the other door in the room.                                        

================================
Mining Station A                
================================
Head to the left from the door, and follow the platforms and jumps around 
the room with ease until you reach the top of the room, well...at least    
close to it. You'll see a huge "sandfall" to the right eventually, and a   
small statue infront of it. Jump ontop of the statue, then to the left of the
sandfall is an opening in the wall. Space Jump over there and you will appear
in a small wireing room. There is a Scan Console in here. Scanning it will  
open the sand gates infront of the statue revealing...a door! Scan the Lore 
nearby if you haven't already, then head back to the statue and Space Jump  
to the door.                                                              

================================
Central Station Access                
================================
In this thin room you will see two Space Pirates below a short ledge. Nearby
them are a few blue containers. Shoot the containers with 3 shots, and they
will explode. Badly. The Space Pirates will slaughtered mecilessly. Proceed 
through.                                                                  

================================
Central Mining Station                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Viligence Class Turret
Logbook Research Scan:Pirate Skiff

As soon as you enter the room, several Pirate Troopers will begin attacking 
you. Kill them all with your Charge Beam shots, and keep avoiding their    
attacks too! After they die, three more Pirate Troopers will appear. Kill  
them off the way you did before. After that, two last Pirate Troopers will  
take command of 2 Viligence Class Turrets. This is your ONLY chance to Scan 
them, so do so if you want. Kill them off quickly, because the Turret's    
blasts can quickly deplete 75 Energy a pop. Once they have finally exploded,
the energy bars blocking the far door of the room will be released. Head  
through the door, but look far to the right of it to find some carrier type 
things. These are Pirate Skiff's, good for another Logbook Scan. Do so and 
move through the door.                                                    

================================
Command Center Access                
================================
The only door in this room (Besides the door you came from) is a Dark door, 
requiring the Dark Beam to open. You don't have that yet. However, there are
some cracks in the flooring. Use a Morph Ball Bomb on one of them to fall  
through. Break some crates with Bombs to reveal a tunnel, which spits you  
out in the.....

================================
Command Center

Logbook Research Scan:Aether
Logbook Research Scan:Dark Aether

...Command Center. You will be under the flooring, in a rather big, but    
straightforward Morph Ball Maze. The really stupid Space Pirates can't see 
you, but you can see them. A group of Pirate Commandoes are standing around,
but soon enter a Dark Portal. Let's not worry about them. Roll through the  
tunnel, avoiding the electrical shocks until you see a path going to the    
right. Follow it until you reach a dead end that contains a MISSILE EXPANSION
just sitting there. Go back to the split junction and continue forwards.   
Avoid more electrical cuurents until you make your way out of the maze, then
go back to normal form.                                                    

Once your out, several Space Pirates will attack you. Kill them all with   
several Charge Beam shots. Flip on your Scan Visor and begin Scanning     
everything in this room. There is a ton of things you can Scan. The two   
holographic planets of Aether and Dark Aether can be Scanned, and a lot of 
the tablets surrounding them can be added to your Logbook too. Once all the 
above listings have been added to your Logbook, head to the right corner of 
the room and Scan a Scan Console to activate a nearby elevator. Ride it to 
the top, then follow the obvious path around until you reach a blue door. A 
Pirate Trooper nearby will begin attacking you, but just ignore him and    
proceed through the door.                                                

================================
Security Station B                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Log 70136

As soon as you enter this room a few gates appear and something drops to 
the ground. Its Dark Samus! She'll stare at you for a few seconds then phase 
through the gates. You can't go through them yet....however, head to the   
right and through the nearby Missile Door. You will be in a little overhang 
in the Control Center. Kill the Pirate Trooper here, then Scan a nearby Scan
Console. It will open a huge gate, which reveals a door behind it. Head back
out to Control Center.                                                    

================================
Command Center                
================================
Jump down from the high platform and work your way over to the door that was
just revealed. Kill any extra Pirate Troopers that you may have missed from
a little while ago.                                                       

================================
Biostorage Access                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Humility Class Turret

Two Turrets will appear from the ceiling and begin shooting at you. Pop some
Missiles into both of them to destroy them. Proceed through three laser    
fields, and be sure not to hit them. If one passes through you, 50 Space   
Pirates will fight you to the death. Narf, just kidding! You just take a   
little damage. No pressure. Proceed quickly through the door that isn't far 
away.

Biostorage Station

Logbook Lore Scan:Log 63622
Logbook Creatures Scan:Tallon Metroid

A Pirate Skiff will quickly enter the scene in this room and will drop off 
a few Pirate Troopers. Blast aay all of their asses with a few Charge Beam 
shots. Once that has been done, head over to the left corner of the room 
and Scan a nearby Scan Console to activate an elevator. Ride it up to the  
upper reaches of the room. Here you will see many tanks with Tallon Metroids
in them. They can't hurt you, so stare at them and laugh. The only Scannable
Tallon Metroids are ones who are in a larger tank, sucking energy out of a 
Space Pirate. You can't miss it. Scan to your desire, and the Log near the 
door, then proceed through that door.                                     

================================
Security Station A                
================================
Go inside the Bomb Slot and activate to switch the path of the room. Why the
hell Retro puts these incredibly useless rooms in the game that wastes our 
time (and patience) is far beyond me. Whatever. Stay calm, and proceed out  
the new door.                                                             

================================
Bioenergy Production                
================================
Energy Tank:On a high ledge on accessible via the storage units. See the    
explanation below.

Logbook Lore Scan:Pirate Aerotrooper

As soon as you enter the room the doors will lock and two Pirate Aerotroopers
will start attacking you. Shoot them down with Charge Beam shots until they
both die. Killing them both not only opens the doors, but also turns on a  
Scan Console so you can Scan it. Head to the left towards the Command Area,
and you'll see a glowing panel. Scan it and three storage unit stacks will 
rise from the ground. Head over to the other side of the room with the other
Control Area. There are three "Stations" you could call it, each with two  
panels. The left one makes the storage units go up, and the other makes them
go down. The Stations are aligned with the storage units they operate. So, 
let's begin.                                                               

Go all the way to the right station and Scan the right panel three times to
make three storage units lower. Then head to the middle Station and Scan the
right panel once to lower two storage units. Go to the leftern Station and 
Scan the right panel once to lower one Storage unit. A stairway is now formed
with the storage units. Climb them to the top with Space Jumps and you will 
find an ENERGY TANK. Go back to the bottom and reverse the platforms. Keep 
the middle platforms the same, but reverse the orders of the left and right
Station platforms. This will form a stairway to the door at the top of the 
room. Go through it.                                                      

================================
Ventilation Area B                
================================
You will enter this room, and all there is is a large Morph Ball tunnel.    
Enter and you will find two laser beams blocking your way. Its impossible to
go through them. Sucks right? Well, we must go the long way around. It is  
only one way and there isn't much skill involved. Just keep Bomb-Jumping and
hiding away from the laser beams that appear every few seconds. Bomb any   
objects that get in your way. Eventually you will reach the other side and 
the lasers that were once blocking your way are offline forever. Exit out 
the door nearby.                                                           

================================
Save Station C                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Log 67135

Enter through the broken glass and [finally] Save your game. Near the Save  
Station is a new Logbook Scan. Are you ready for a boss battle? Good. Exit  
out the other door in the room.                                           

================================
Sand Processing                
================================
Drop to the bottom of the room and destroy the two turrets. Blast a Missile 
at the cracked wall, to destroy it, then follow the thin path to the next   
doorway.                                                                  

================================
Main Reactor                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:B-Stl's Testament
Logbook Research Scan:Phazon
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Samus 1

***BOSS BATTLE!***
Dark Samus 

Turn left once you enter the room, then drop off the ledge to the right once
you see it. You will drop to the bottom of the reactor, and Dark Samus will
stop gathering Phazon and engage you in battle. Yay. Let's kick her ass!   
She will continually move around on the ground, sometimes very quickly and 
mess up your Lock-On. When she begins to charge her beam, hide behind a    
pillar to avoid damage. Keep using Charge Beam shots against her-Shooting a 
Missile makes her put up a shield simply deflecting it. Once you have      
depleated half of her life, she will begin to glow. Whenever she leaps high 
into the air, hide behind the center pillar. Every other pillar can be      
destroyed by her ram. While in the air, she is invincible. When she lands 
she will be crouched down. When she starts moving again you are able to keep
attacking her. Its a pretty easy battle, just avoid all of her attacks and  
you will win with ease.                                                    

Once she dies, Dark Samus will explode. Don't think that's the last of her  
though. Several tanks will explode down here. Scan them for the Phazon     
Logbook entry, then head to the left side of the room where an elevator will
be active. Once you reach the top, turn around and Scan the dead Luminoth 
for another Scan. Once your all done here, head through the blue door near 
the elevator.                                                              

================================
Storage D                
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Log 69898

Once you enter the room, Scan the tablet near you for a new Logbook entry.
Grab the Dark Beam in the center of the room. It starts with a whopping 50  
Ammo. Use one shot to open the Dark door and to get out this really smoking
and small room.                                                           
*DARK BEAM AQUIRED!*
***MISSION 5:COMPLETED!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      ~Mission 6:Venture to Dark Aether for the Important Light Beam~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:***/*****
Mission Objective:We need to, once again, head over to Dark Aether. This time
around, you will be staying there for quite a long time. Make sure you got  
plenty of Energy! The Light Beam is our next objective. You will be using   
your newly aquired Dark Beam quite a little along the way. Stay safe, and try
not to die!                                                               

================================
Main Reactor                
================================
Nothing new in this room, as you could easily guess. Shoot one Dark Beam shot
into the crystal on the gate, which will open the gate. Proceed through the 
Dark Beam door.                                                          

================================
Security Station B                
================================
Like we did with the gate in the previous room, simply activate both gates  
by shooting their crystals with Dark Beam shots. Also, you should Scan the  
Log's here if you didn't before, as we aren't likely to be returning to this 
room again.                                                               

================================
Command Center                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Pirate Grenadier

As soon as you enter the Command Center, several Pirate Grenadiers will drop 
down. They are basically normal Space Pirates with cannons that can easily  
fire at you. You can fight them, but there is no need. Another feature of the
Dark Beam is that is can activate Dark Portals without the aid of a machine. 
At the bottom of the room you should see the inactive Dark Portal. Shoot one
Dark Beam shot into it to make it active. When your ready, walk into the    
portal.

Logbook Research Scan:Light Lift Crystal

Dark Agon Temple Key Location:Upper ledge of the room                      

Now to confirm your worst fears-your gonna be spending quite some time in   
Dark Agon Wastes. Once you land in Dark Agon Wastes, there is no escape.    
There is no portal behind you. At least for now. Once you enter, look      
upwards to the floating balls of gas. Scan these Dark Preeds. Killing them  
will emit super poisionous gas for a few seconds, which if you touch will  
immensely damage Samus. Look to the right. There is a Light Beacon there.  
Hit it with a Dark Beam shot, which is good for a new Scan. Hit it with a few
Power Beam shots to re-activate the normal Safe Zone. Rush over inside it,  
and around the room until your near a Nullified Beacon, which is also good  
for another Scan.                                                          

You should be near a high platform with a lit Safe Zone. It is too high to  
reach, though. You should see a Luminoth Warrior statue on it, however. Blast
this with a Missile to expose a Light Life Crystal. Scan this too. (If you 
are having trouble finding the breakable Statue, bring on your Scan Visor.  
Scan things until you find it). Shoot the Light Lift Crystal with a Dark    
Beam shot.                                                                 

This will lower the platform so you can Jump ontop of it. Do so, then jump  
onto a high platform. Jump to the ledge on the left, and snag the DARK AGON 
TEMPLE KEY 1. This is the first Key, although we "technically" already got 
the third. One key still remains. There is no need to go through the Dark   
Door behind the key as you will just come to a dead end. Go through the other
Dark Door in this room.                                                    

================================
Oasis Access                
================================
In this room, quickly rush to the safe zone in the middle of the room. A    
Warrior Ing will ambush you once you reach the middle safe zone. It pretty 
much blocks your path until you defeat it. You can easily kill it, though,  
by shooting the Phazon Containers on the left wall. You will be out of their
explosion raidus, but the Warrior Ing probably won't be. Move on after his  
defeat.                                                                   

================================
Dark Oasis                
================================
Once you enter this room, several Inglets will attack you. They die pretty  
easily, so you should have no trouble killing them. The only door in here   
you can use is on the right side of the room. You will see a Portal back to 
Light Aether...but it requires the Light Beam to activate and we don't quite
have that yet do we?                                                      

================================
Hall of Stairs                
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Dark Lift Crystal

Head to the backside of the room quickly, and stand in the safe zone. Look  
up at the top of the large pillar. Scan the Dark Lift Crystal, then activate
it with your Dark Beam. This will make the pillar lower to the ground. Jump
ontop of it, then perform a Space Jump to the top ledge, and proceed out the
nearby door.                                                             

================================
Save Station 3                
================================
*Phew*! Save your game, get fully healed, go out the other door.            

================================
Bitter Well                
================================
Start rolling through the tunnel, but don't rush it. The very middle is a   
huge Phazon pit. Falling into it means your gonna take an assload of damage.
That's bad. Make a Bomb Jump onto the upper ledge, then perform a Bomb Jump
over the gap onto the other ledge. If you happened  to fall into the Phazon,
simply Bomb Jump out the right side. This effectively saves time, although 
you are taking damage. Go out the door.                                   

================================
Phazon Site                
================================
Ride the elevator down to the bottom level. The far door of this room is   
blocked by three security bars. In order to activate the door, you must    
activate three Scan consoles. Once your at the bottom, head to the left    
quickly, and Charge Beam away some crates. This will reveal the first Scan  
console. Scan it quickly-your still taking damage. Head over to the other   
side of the room from here.                                                

The other side of the room has some platforms constantly going up and down. 
Jump on the first one, and shoot the Beacon to sheild yourself from the    
atmosphere. Look down with your Scan Visor and look for the second Scan     
console. Scan it of course! (You may need to be lower to actually Scan it.)
Once the second lock has been deactivated, simply go across the other      
platforms, using their Beacons of course, until you reach a small ledge where
the final Scan console waits. Scan it, and the door out of this room is    
finally accessable. Once you leave this room, Dark Tallon Metroids infest   
this room!                                                                 

================================
Watering Hole                
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Ingclaw

Once you enter this room, you should Scan the large things on the far side  
of the room. Do it quickly-invisible Lumites are attacking your position.   
You need to quickly make your way across the platforms to the other side   
of the room. If you fall down, use the platforms to work your way to the   
top and try again. You need to be quick as this room can seriously give you  
a lot of damage!                                                          

================================
Feeding Pit               
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Nightbarb

Once you enter this room, turn to the left and activate the Light Beacon.   
Run into it, and recover your Energy if you have lost a lot up to this point.
When your ready, jump down into the lower area of the room, and run to the   
right and activate another Light Beacon. Run around the right side of the   
room, to the backside of the 2 large pillars. Both of these pillars have a  
Dark Lift Crystal on top of them. I think you know what to do. You need    
to shoot them with a Dark Beam shot. However, a huge swarm of Nightbarb's  
are flying around both pillars. Kill them all off so they don't interfere  
with your shots. When your ready, activate the Crystals to lower the       
platforms so you can jump on them, which form a staircase to the upper door 
of the room.                                                              

================================
Ing Cache 1                
================================
Huzzah! This room contains the precious Light Beam! Go grab it! Push C-Left 
to select the Light Beam, and C-Up to return to the Power Beam. Use it on the
Light Door and back to Feeding Pit.                                       
***MISSION 6:COMPLETED!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                ~Mission 7:Amorbis Secrets the Dark Suit~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:***/*****
Mission Objective:Now with both Beams in hand, we need a new Suit, preferably
one that can withstand Dark Aether's atmosphere to some extent. The Dark Suit
can do just that, but a vile boss guards it...                           

================================
Feeding Pit               
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Energized Crystal
Logbook Research Scan:Energized Beacon

Once you enter this room again, shoot a Light Beam shot at any Light Beacon 
for a new Scan. Repeat this process with a Light Crystal. Here is a tip you
MUST know if you want ANY chance at repeated use of your Beams. Defeating  
creatures with the Light Beam may spew Dark Ammo. Defeating creatures with  
the Dark Beam may spew out Light Ammo. Its that simple. Once you understand
the use of both of your Beam weapons, proceed out by the other Light door in 
this room.                                                               

================================
Feeding Pit Access               
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Webling

You will quickly come to a halt because of the several Weblings that block  
your path. Defeat them easily with a Light Beam shot. BE CAREFUL! This is   
the ONLY place you can find a Webling, and killing them all makes the Scan 
impossible to retrive!                                                     

================================
Doomed Entry               
================================
...back where we started. Yay. Head left and go through the Light Beam door,
avoiding the Dark Splinters.                                               

================================
Double Path               
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Darkling Tentacle

As soon as you enter the room, several Darkling Tentacles will attack you. 
Actually, they just stick out of the wall and swing themselves back and     
forth in a vain attempt to hurt you. Your not gonna let that happen are you?
Scan them first, of course, then shoot them once with any beam to have them  
retract into the wall for a short time. Shoot all the tentacles to clear a  
path to the far door.                                                       

================================
Battleground               
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Ing Webtrap

Dark Agon Temple Key:Middle of Battleground after defeating all 7 Warrior   
Ing's                                                                      

Aha! The final Dark Agon Temple Key! WHAT? Stolen by a mysterious blob?     
Crap....in order to truly claim your final Key, you must defeat all seven   
Warrior Ing that begin to infest this room. Ing Webtraps will guard the    
doors to prevent your escape. This is your ONLY chance to Scan the Ing      
Webtrap so make sure you do so. Kill as many Warrior Ings as you can with   
Charged Light Beam shots, then resort to Charge Beam shots. Its a long battle
but you will eventually win if you stay in the safe zone the entire time.   
Grab the Key, then back to Double Path.                                    

================================
Double Path              
================================
Do exactly as you did before when you entered this room-shoot the tentacles 
and move on.                                                              

================================
Doomed Entry               
================================
Head through the upper Dark Beam door via the platforms we lowered quite    
some time ago.                                                              

================================
Oasis Access               
================================
Several Inglets are crawling around this room, and may cause some annoyence.
Just continue through, ignoring them unless you need energy pretty badly and
you really shouldn't...                                                   

================================
Dark Oasis               
================================
Upon entering the room, simply take a right and open up the Light door. Use a
Charge shot for a normal Light Beam shot incase of the fact you have drained
all of your ammo.                                                          

================================
Ing Cache 3               
================================
This room is an Ammo Recharge station. Basically it recharges your Ammo (duh)
so do so then exit the room.                                                

================================
Dark Oasis               
================================
Head to the other side of the room where the inactive portal we had to      
skip earlier lies. Use a Light Beam shot on it to activate the Portal, then 
step right into it.

Main Reactor               
================================
Exit through the nearby door.                                               

================================
Sand Processing               
================================
Head through to the other door in this room. Be careful though as two turrets
will begin to attack you.                                                 

================================
Save Station C               
================================
Its been a long trek without Saving so far...and were not even halfway     
through this one mission! Definately Save your game, then proceed out through
the other door.                                                             

================================
Ventilation Area B               
================================
Roll through to the other side of this room. There were once lasers guarding
the bottom, easy path through the room, but you destroyed them, remember? 
Head through to the other door.                                             

================================
Bioenergy Production               
================================
Several Tallon Metroids have infested this room. Just get into your Morph   
Ball and roll to the other door. You can easily kill the Metroids just by  
standing near the door. Try it!                                             

================================
Security Station A               
================================
Ugh! I'm sick of this room! Simply Bomb the Bomb Slot and proceed through   
the other door....                                                        

================================
Biostorage Station              
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Metroid Cocoon
Logbook Creatures Scan:Infant Tallon Metroid

When you approach the Tallon Metroids inside their glass cases, they will  
break free and start attacking you. There are a TON of Metroids in this     
room, and I reccomend killing them all. As all Metroid Veterans should know, 
blasts of coldness are a Metroids' worst fear. The only cold weapon we have
is the Charged Dark Beam. So...use it on the Metroids, followed by a Missile
to easily kill them. You'll find cocoon's at the top of the room, which     
you can Scan, as well as Infant Tallon Metroids that appear from them, and 
Scan them too. They CAN'T latch onto Samus and suck her energy, but they   
can ram her. Head through the Dark Beam door on the upper level of         
Biostorage Station.                                                        

================================
Storage B               
================================
Missile Expansion:The only thing in this small room.

Enter the room and grab the MISSILE EXPANSION simply sitting there, then go 
back to the other room.                                                    



================================
Biostorage Station               
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Metroid Cocoon
Logbook Creatures Scan:Infant Tallon Metroid

Exit through the only door on the lower level. (NOTE:Metroid Cocoon's and  
Infant Tallon Metroids appear AFTER grabbing the aforementioned Missile    
Expansion. Until then the aforementioned Logbook Scan's aren't available, so
just get the Missiles!)                                                   

================================
Biostorage Access               
================================
Head through the room and don't hit the lasers. Be careful of the two      
turrets at the end of the apth.                                             

================================
Command Center               
================================
Several Pirate Grenadiers don't feel like leaving this room. Ignore them, and
head through the upper Light door.                                          

================================
Command Center Access               
================================
There isn't, and never will be anything else appearing in this room. Go to  
the other door.

Logbook Lore Scan:J-Stl's Testament
Logbook Lore Scan:Log 71599

Beam Ammo Expansion:Behind the large orange force field

Once you enter the room, turn to the right and enter the Viligence Class   
Turret hologram to take control of the turret. Who go da' power? With this 
big ol' sucker we can blast things from a mile away! Aim down and to the   
left, towards some Pirate Skiff's on the left wall. Blast the lower one,    
which will fall creating a makeshift platform. There are three windmill like
things in this room-destroy those too. On the right side of the room you may
be able to make out a large generator type device that is indesctrucable,   
except to the cannon (Scan around to find it if you have trouble). Blow that
up, then blow another one of those things up near the large orange force    
field in the back of the room. This triggers two Space Pirates to attack    
you...but your in a big ass cannon so I don't think they have a chance. IF  
the cannon does blow up because of the Space Pirates, you instantly die.   
Push B to exit the cannon if it takes too much damage. Once everything is  
clear in the room, jump to the Pirate Skiff's and over some platforms until 
you reach a cave-like area.                                              

There is a Log Terminal to the right of you once inside a cave like area.  
Scan it, then continue forwards through the onyl path until you reach the   
orange force field. If a generator is blocking you, head back to the     
Cannons and destroy it, otherwise Morph Ball through the simple tunnel and 
Scan the Luminoth for another Logbook Scan, then collect the BEAM AMMO    
EXPANSION. You can now hold 100 of each type of Ammo. Nifty. Exit through
the other door of the room.                                                

================================
Central Station Access

Goto the other door of the room...                                          

================================
Mining Station A               
================================
We're not far from the Dark Suit! If you don't feel like you need an      
extra Energy Tank for your needs, skip the indented section and go right to 
Portal Access A. Otherwise, I suggest you follow the indented area for your 
X-tra Tank.                                                                

     ================================
     Temple Access               
     ================================
     Nothing much in this room....just head alll the way to the other side  
     avoiding the Shriekbats.                                               

     ================================
     Agon Temple               
     ================================
     Take a left when you enter the Temple, and go through the Dark door when
     you reach it.                                                          

     ================================
     Mine Shaft               
     ================================
     Energy Tank:Upper area of this room (follow instrutions below)
     
     We came all the way to this room for an Energy Tank! Yay for us! Start 
     off by rolling to the left, quickly going over a sand block which    
     crumbles the second you stay on it. Then a square platform will be    
     high above you. Kill the Pillbug on the platform wil several Bombs,    
     then perform a Double Bomb Jump to the top of the platform, then another
     Bomb Jump to an upper ledge. From here all you really need to do is    
     follow the path around. It is full of sand blocks, so if you don't move 
     fast you will fall to the bottom of the shaft. If that happens, you need
     to roll around all the way back to the top and start this process again!
     Eventually you will come to a part of the path where you can't see    
     yourself as your behind a wall with lines on it. The lines represent    
     where the path is, so use that as a guide. A few more Bomb Jumps after 
     that, and the ENERGY TANK is all yours! Go back to Agon Temple after   
     your small quest.                                                     

     ================================
     Agon Temple               
     ================================
     Nothing important in here right now...so go back to Temple Access when
     your ready.

     ================================
     From here take the door near the middle wall of the room to Portal    
     Access A.                                                             

================================
Portal Access A               
================================
Roll into the Kinetic Orb Cannon and blast to the other side and out the   
other door.                                                                

================================
Portal Terminal               
================================
There are a ton of War Wasp Hives in here...which isn't a good thing. Quickly
get over to the Portal Device and activate. Whenever your ready, step     
through the Portal.

Go through to the other side of the room, and out the door on the left side 
leading to Crossroads.                                                    

================================
Crossroads               
================================
Not a very tought room....destroy the Inglets if you wish and go through the
other door.                                                                

================================
Save Station 2               
================================
Our mission is almost over! Save your game and restore your Energy, then head
out the other door.                                                        

================================
Duelling Range               
================================
Continue along the left wall of the room until you reach a Dark Door. Go    
through it.                                                                

================================
Ing Cache 4               
================================
Missile Expansion:In a hole under the door

Kill all of the Lumites that infest this room, then drop off the ledge into 
the safe zone. Get into Morph Ball mode and roll into a small cove under   
the door where you will get a MISSILE EXPANSION. Go back out to Duelling    
Range.                                                                     

================================
Duelling Range               
================================
Continue up through the room by using the platforms to the left. Avoid the  
Warrior Ing's on your way up.                                             

================================
Junction Site               
================================
Go through to the other side.                                                

================================
Judgement Pit               
================================
Head up the room about...halfway or so until you reach a Dark Door. Go      
through this door.                                                         

================================
Save Station 1               
================================
Save your game, and get ready for the boss battle! Head back to Judgement  
Pit.                                                                       

================================
Judgement Pit               
================================
Go to the very top of the room where you should find a Missile door. Blast it
open and proceed through.                                                  

================================
Dark Agon Temple Access               
================================
Morph Ball to the other side and door.                                      

================================
Dark Agon Temple               
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Amorbis 1
Logbook Creatures Scan:Amorbis 2

===BOSS FIGHT!===
Amorbis 

You have all three Dark Agon Keys (Hopefully) so the pillar infront of you  
should be shining. Step into it and all three keys will get placed, thus   
unlocking the Temple. When you step down, three giant worms will burrow    
into the ground and the boss battle will begin. this giant worm is Amorbis. 
The battle is pretty simple to understand. Amorbis will burrow into the     
ground, jump out of it over a great distance and back into the ground, then 
repeat the process. You need to blast it with whatever firepower you have   
while it is jumping to break off its outer shell. This is a quick phase if 
you know what to do. One Charged Light Beam shot instantly breaks off his   
entire shell. Nice huh? But you haven't dealt anything to his health bar...
The Amorbis will then lath itself onto the giant ball in the middle of the 
room. He has a new form here, so Scan this too. You need to destroy his face
plate with whatever weaponry you got. Like before, one Charged Light Beam  
shot totally destroys it. He will then put his head on the ground and start
sucking things into his belly. Get into Morph Ball mode and let him swallow
you. Put a Bomb in his stomach to damage him. He will crack the ball        
slightly, then two worms will be infesting the field. Repeat the process as 
before, then three worms will be on the field. After all 3 worms (total of 
6 in all) have been killed, the last Amorbis will crack open the giant     
ball, revealing the Dark Suit. Go grab your well deserved prize!          
***DARK SUIT OBTAINED!***
Go through the last door in the Temple.
***MISSION 7:COMPLETED!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
         ~Mission 8:Firepower Required! Grabbing the Super Missiles~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:**/*****
Mission Objective:We recently just beat Amorbis, and claimed the Dark Suit,
which negates most of the effects of Dark Aether's atmosphere. Now you take
1 damage per second instead of 5. Nice. This Mission is LONGGGGG. There    
aren't many Save Stations along the way, so be sure to conserve your Energy!
The Super Missiles is our next task. These powerful Missile Combo will be  
able to open Green Doors. But...the worst is yet to come. Its long, but you
can do this!                                                               

================================
Dark Controller Access               
================================
Honestly, I have NO idea as to why these rooms are even put in this game.   
All that happens is you activate the Bomb Slot and rotate the room around. 
YAWN!                                                                      

================================
Dark Agon Energy Controller               
================================
Walk up to the pedestal in front of the Energy Controller, and Samus will  
stick her Arm Cannon into the open slot. After a few seconds, Samus will    
have fully absorbed the Energy that was being stored in inside the         
Controller. If you ever Scanned the Controller and actually bothered to READ
it, you'd understand that the Energy controls the stability of the land it 
is in as well as its weather. The stability we will worry about later, but 
all of Dark Agon Wastes has turned from the easily seen purple atmosphere   
to an evil red colored atmosphere. Red gases drift over the land now. Its  
painfully hard to see. Your gonna need to survive though, so head out back
to the previous room.                                                      

================================
Dark Controller Access               
================================
The same boring room we visited several seconds ago. Waste time with the Bomb
Slot then exit the room.                                                   

================================
Dark Agon Temple               
================================
There are three Warrior Ing's waiting in the middle of the Temple...probably
waiting for an unsuspecting idiot to wander near them so they can brutally 
murder you. If your reading this, I'm not sure you will be that idiot, right?
You need to cross the Temple however. Get into Morph Ball mode and hug the 
outside of the Temple as you make your way to the door on the other side, 
avoiding the Ing's.                                                         

================================
Dark Agon Temple Access               
================================
A boring, short room. Ignore the Inglets or kill them for Energy as you make
your way to the other side.                                                

================================
Judgement Pit               
================================
Two Warrior Ing's are invading this room. You should ignore them as you make
your way to the other side of the room, towards the Save Station we used a  
little while back.                                                          

================================
Save Station 1               
================================
Head in via the Dark door and Save the game, and restore your Energy. Head  
back to the other room.                                                     

================================
Judgement Pit               
================================
In this room, head out the door which leads to Portal Access (Which is below
the Dark door BTW).                                                         

================================
Portal Access               
================================
There isn't much in here...destroy the Lightflyer to create a temperary safe
zone, then go out the other door.                                          

================================
Portal Site               
================================
When you get close the the ledge with the Portal device on it, several Dark 
Pirate Troopers will ambush you. They WILL murder you to death if you try 
to fight them. They will also murder you if you run away, but you will take 
less damage. Keep trying to Space Jump onto the Portal ledge, then quickly 
get outta Dark Aether.

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

================================
Portal Terminal              
================================
There isn't much new in here besides War Wasps. Exit out by the door on the 
right hand side.                                                           

================================
Portal Access A               
================================
Go into the Kinetic Orb Cannon, and exit out of the door on the other side
once you reach it.                                                        

================================
Mining Station A               
================================
There are several Pirate Aerotroopers in this room. They don't cause much   
damage, but they can be annoying. Kill them if you want to, but the only    
thing you need to be concerned about is reaching the door at the top of this
room without getting killed, really.                                        

================================
Temple Access               
================================
Another boring, totally useless room. Go through, making sure to avoid the  
Shreiekbats.                                                                

================================
Agon Temple               
================================
There are War Wasps that will try to hinder your way once you enter the     
Temple. Simply ignore them, or kill them if you wish and head for the other 
side of the Temple.                                                         

================================
Controller Access              
================================
UGH!!! Stop it with these rooms! You should know the drill by now...or else..
or else...                                                                 

================================
Agon Energy Controller               
================================
Approach the Energy Transfer Device next to the Energy Controller to insert
all of the stolen stolen Energy back to its proper home. (The Energy was   
originally stolen, but we stole it back. Is that a bad thing? I'm confused 
now...). Also as to not, it became much brighter in Agon Wastes. Anyways,  
time to leave this dump :)                                                 

================================
Controller Access               
================================
Sigh...we were at this room..what? Less than 10 seconds ago? Sheesh...this 
room is slow...                                                            

================================
Agon Temple               
================================
Besides gazing at the open sunlight in Death Valley (Agon Wastes seems just 
like it ironically), pass through here back to Temple Access on the other
side of the room.                                                           

================================
Temple Access              
================================
As soon as you enter the room, watch out for the Shriekbats. Cross over to 
the other door.                                                           

================================
Mining Station A               
================================
Jump off the ledge onto the bottom of the room, then head through the only 
bottom door there.                                                        

================================
Mining Station Access               
================================
If you didn't do it much long ago, when you reach the middle of the room,  
Bomb the sand block and head up the Kinetic Orb Cannon for an Energy Tank. 
Otherwise just proceed through.                                            

================================
Mining Plaza               
================================
Once again, nothing new has happened in this room. Drop to the bottom and  
head in the near door.                                                      

================================
Save Station A               
================================
We haven't Saved for a little while, and you won't get any other chance to  
Save for a long time, so rest up, restore your Energy, and get ready to    
kick some ass.                                                              

================================
Mining Plaza               
================================
The only thing left to do in Agon Wastes is to leave it. Use the only path, 
the door on the far left of the room.                                      

================================
Plaza Access               
================================
Run across this thin and short room, being sure you avoid the damned Lumites
attacking you.                                                              

================================
Transport to Temple Grounds               
================================
Head into the hologram to start the elevator, and more importantly, our     
quest for the Super Missiles!

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

================================
Transport to Agon Wastes               
================================
Exit out of the room.                                                       

================================
Agon Transport Access               
================================
*Phew* You've made it through Agon Wastes! Much more left to go! Head through
this room as well.                                                          

================================
Industrial Site               
================================
Kill all of the Dark Splinters if you must as they might get in your way,   
then take a left and follow the path around the room until you reach a door.
Go through it.                                                             

================================
Collapsed Tunnel               
================================
Nothing in here except a small tunnel Morph Ball all the way through it, and
out the other door.                                                        

================================
Temple Assembly Site               
================================
Missile Expansion:Above the door you just entered from. Use the tall pillars
as stepping stones up to it.                                              

Once you enter the room, head over near the other side of the room to where 
the door leading to Temple Access B is. You can go through it and proceed  
with the game, or go through a short side-quest for some more Expansions and
Scans. Its up to you.                                                      

First off in this room, head to the other side and stand on top of one of the
pillars. Make a Space Jump to the ledge on the left side of the room. From  
there, follow the path and Morph Ball where you need to, and you will      
eventually stumble upon a MISSILE EXPANSNION. Grab it and either do the    
side-quest of the elevator.                                                 

     ================================
     Plain of Dark Worship               
     ================================
     Missile Expansion:Inside a large pillar, can't be missed.              

     In Temple Assembly Site, there is a Crystal on a pillar near the door  
     leading to Collapsed Tunnel that when shot with a Light Beam shot will 
     move. Use your Scan Visor to find it. It will reveal a Portal, so     
     activate it with the Dark Beam and head through to Plain of Dark       
     Worship. The only thing here is a MISSILE EXPANSION on the other end of
     the room. Grab it, and return to the Portal and back to Light Aether...
     I'm sick of Dark Aether :(

     Your trapped in my side-quest of doom! Head onto the crate on the right
     and up the nearby door.

     Jump above the closed gate and kill any pestering Splinters on your way

     Missile Expansion:Under a glass plate composed of Talloric Alloy

     Space Jump up to the ledge on the left once you enter the room and you
     should see a glass, white plate on the ground. Use a Bomb on it to   
     destroy the glass and reveal a MISSILE EXPANSION. Once you've had      
     your fair share of Expansions, jump onto a nearby pillar and Space    
     Jump to some upper ledges. From there follow an easy path to the door at
     the top of the room.

     Logbook Lore Scan:D-Isl's Testament

     Follow the path to the bottom of the room and Scan the dead Luminoth.  
     That's the only point of the room...so exit out of this room the way  
     you came in.

If you went on the little side-mission, the door you need to enter for the

================================
Transport Access B              
================================
STILL nothing, and there never will be anything of value inside this room.  
Just go to the other door.                                                 

================================
Tenple Sanctuary               
================================
Our next objective is to have a chat with U-Mos, so head to the left and   
through the next door.                                                     

================================
Controller Transport               
================================
Ride the elevator to the top and out the door.                              

================================
Main Energy Controller               
================================
Step into the room to have a talk with U-Mos. He is very pleased that you   
restored the Energy to Agon that quickly, and will priase you, but there   
is still more to be done. He says the Ing hate you, very much, and will    
stop at nothing to kill you. The next captured land on our list is Torvus   
Bog. As if the name doesn't give it away, its a large wetland with a lotta  
water. U-Mos says to use the Amber door in the Temple to access Torvus. Leave
the room when your done.

Look for the Amber colored gate, and Scan it to make it open up. Head through
the door it was concealing.                                                

================================
Transport C Access             
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Harmony Class Drone

Upon entering the room, you won't be able to progress and further until you 
shoot the purple crystal with a Light Beam shot to make the pillar move.    
This reveals the path to the next door, and 2 Harmony Class Drones (Scan   
them). They will be attracted to your Charge Beam and will come towards   
you when its active...so just run to the door.                             

================================
Temple Transport C             
================================
Scan the Scan console at the end of the room to activate the elevator, then
step into the hologram.                                                    

================================

Exit. Out. The door.                                                       

================================
Meeting Grounds             
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Age of Anxiety

Several War Wasps will ambush you as soon as you lower the Amber gate. Just 
run past them and onto the blue half-pipe like structure. Look to the top   
left to find a Lore Porjector, which you can Scan from your position. Now   
simply head stright along the only path to the door which is at the bottom 
of a hill.                                                                 

================================
Hall of Eyes             
================================
Head down through this short room to a ledge which you can Space Jump ontop 
of. Your near a Green Blast Sheild which requires the Super Missile to break.
We don't quite have those do we? Head through the Portal that lies nearby  
your standing point.                                                       

================================
Base Access             
================================
This room is much like its Light Aether counterpart...with the Green door and
the Blue door. Luckily, they are on opposite sides of the room. So we can   
access the next room where the Green Blast Shield WOULD be on Aether if we 
were there right now.                                                      

================================
Abandoned Base              
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Corrupted Sentreye

You need to go quickly through this room as their are almost no safe zones  
until you reach the end of it-and its a LOOOOONG room. Get into Morph Ball  
mode as soon as you enter the room and start rolling through the room. The  
purple gas from the Ingclaws? It would murder you if you didn't have the  
Dark Suit...                                                               

Once you reach the halfway point of the room, several lasers will seem to  
appear out of nowhere. These are Corrupted Sentreye's, good for another    
Scan. Continue on through the room until you reach the end of it. There will
be a sand hill, a platform above you with a safe zone, and 2 left platforms 
with safe zones around them. Get onto one of the lefts in Morph Ball mode and
ride it up. Take the right left, not the left. You will end up on a large   
circular path with 4 Bomb slots. Activating a Bomb Slot cause one handle    
to goto the middle platform, and a bar comes down blocking your path. You  
need to skip the first Bomb Slot for now, then Bomb the other three as you 
see them. Once that's done, go back and activate the last Bomb Slot for all
four handles to have reached the center platform. Its now active as a       
transport. Get onto it and prepare for a little ride. You will encounter 3  
swarms of Nightbarbs along the way, so kill them. The ride ends right next 
to a platform with a Portal on it. Activate the Portal, then when your ready
step into it.                                                             

================================
Path of Eyes             
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:The World Warped

You will appear on a high platform, with no Portal behind you. We bypassed  
the Green Blast Sheild door...but I doubt you found it very easy. Anyways,  
this is a long room, and your ass is likely to get kicked if you aren't    
ready. I STRONGLY advise you to have the Dark Beam active, and have a       
Charged Shot at the ready. You will be using the ol' Entangler+Missile     
setup to shred your enemies quickly, before they quickly kill you. Jump off 
the platform and several Dark Pirate Troopers will appear. Entangler shot+ 
Missile to quickly dispose of them. When they are dead, Space Jump up to the
top of the ledge.                                                          

Keep going around the corner and more Dark Pirate Troopers will ambush you. 
Your probably taking some damage, so quickly kill them before it is too    
late. After that, activate the purple crystal with a Light Beam shot to   
being out a platform, for use a stairway to the next ledge. From there,     
around the corner is a small and shallow pool. You will move slowly through  
the water so don't jump into it. Instead, bring out the platform via the    
crystal to create a path over the water, leading to an Amber gate. Lower    
the gate, but before going to the next room look to the left for a Morph   
Ball hole. Slide through it all, and at the end activate another crystal.   
It makes a shortcut back to the beginning of this room, a place we will be 
going back to several times. Also, pick up the Lore Scan nearby. When ready
head to the next room.                                                     

================================
Torvus Transport Access             
================================
Really close to Tovus Bog now! There are several War Wasp hives in here,   
but they are of no concern unless you like kill things o_O. Head through the
only door, at the far end of the room.                                    

================================
Transport to Torvus Bog             
================================
Activate the Scan Console and head down the elevator. Finally, welcome to  
Torvus Bog!

Transport to Temple Grounds             
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Torvus Bearerpod

Look around the room for a strange green and red plant like sac. Its a new 
Scan, so do so. Whenever your ready to exit this lonely room, why don't you
just do so?                                                                

================================
Temple Transport Access             
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Torvus Hanging Pod

Several Shriekbats will atempt to kill you when you enter this room. Kill  
them all first, then look upwards towards some hanging bushels of something.
This is a new Scan. Exit through the other door.                           

================================
Torvus Lagoon             
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Shredder
Logbook Creatures Scan:Hydlings
Logbook Lore Scan:S-Dly's Testament

Now we are truly in Torvus Bog. Beautiful place....excellent serene music...
and an assload of enemies that wanna kill you. What more could one ask for?
Scan the dead Luminoth to the left of you once you enter the room. Get    
near the water and several enemies will bloat up and start floating towards
you. These are Shredders, exploding flying bombs of doomyness. Kill or     
avoid (and Scan). Jump into the water and you should find several floating  
enemies down there. These are Hydlings, another Scan. Head to the surface and
head through a Missile Door up there.                                      

================================
Save Station A             
================================
Its been a long run so far, so you should be glad you finally have the chance
to Save the game. Do so then exit the room.                                 

================================
Torvus Lagoon             
================================
Jump right back into the water, and follow the path around to the left. You 
will be going at like 1 MPH since you don't have any equipment on your suit 
that is built for movement in the water....yet. Enter through a Dark door   
once you reach one.                                                         

================================
Path of Roots             
================================
Several Hydlings are swarming around you once you enter this room. They die 
REALLY quickly, so simply knock them all out and Morph Ball through the     
center of the room. Do a few Space Jumps up some ledges underwater to clear
the surface. Its a bit hard though, so keep trying. Eventually you'll get out
so head through the door.                                                  

================================
Great Bridge             
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Sentinel Crystal
Logbook Creatures Scan:Shrieker

Enter the room, then Scan one of the enemies that is floating peacefully   
ontop of the water. Then, look around the room for some octagonal crystals 
on the walls. Both of these are new Scans for your Logbook. Do so if you   
wish. The Shriekers, when awakened, are only visible to Sonic Detection    
Systems, which you don't have yet. Ignore everything else in the room and   
head through the Missile Door on the right.                                

================================
Portal Chamber             
================================
A small empty room. One would think that, but there's actually a Morph Ball 
path infront of you. Go into it, and use some Bomb Jumps to reach through the
chamber. There is a Missile Expansion past the walls of the path, but its 
impossible to get for a while. Ignore it and go through the door at the end
of the tunnel.                                                             

================================
Torvus Lagoon            
================================
Scan the Scan Console right next to you to lower the bridge down so it is   
forever accessible (yay). Head across the newly formed bridge to and through
a Light door.                                                              

================================
Ruined Alcove             
================================
Get into Morph Ball mode quickly, and start rolling through this room. A    
total of six Shredders will pop up from the water and start heading for you.
This, if they all explode near you, is about 2.5 Energy Tanks of damage, and
we need to conserve our Energy. Roll to the other side and through the Light
door. The Shredders will crash into eachother and explode when they get close
to your position anyways, so collect the powerups that they leave behind   
before entering the door.                                                   

================================
Forgotten Bridge             
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Bloatsac
Logbook Creatures Scan:Grenchler

2 massive beasts will attack you upon entering the room. Scan the Grenchlers
and prepare to run like hell away from them. They will, in a short amount of
time, deal massive damage to you. The way to kill them is exactly like     
Baby Sheegoths in Metroid Prime-blast away at their tail's until it is     
destroyed, then pop a Missile into their exposed flesh to finish them off. 
Sadly, their tail's have immense health (As does everything in this game) so
its best to not even bother. There are several exploding sac's around the   
room which are good for another Scan. Head across the Bridge at the top of 
the room and through the Portal it leads to.                              

================================
Dark Forgotten Bridge             
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Phlogus
Logbook Research Scan:Ingsphere Cache
Logbook Research Scan:Dark Sentinel Crystal

Simple walk over the bridge much like you did in the Light Aether version of
the room, and over to the Bomb Slot. Simply activate it. This will cause the
bridge to shift positions. Before heading across the new bridge to a Green 
Sheild door which you can't go through anyways, jump to the bottom of the 
room, NOT landing in the purple waters. Scan the clam-like creature in the 
water, as well as a blue version of the Sentinel Crystal. Scan one of the 
small sacs found around the room too. Once your done climb some platforms   
near the water, and back through the Portal.                                

================================
Forgotten Bridge             
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Pirate Commando

Missile Expansion:Kinda impossible to miss...its on the end of the bridge and
infront of a door were about to go through.                                

2 Dark Pirate Commando's will appear in the room, and lock off the doors.  
You have to wait over 2 minutes for them to go away and the doors to open, 
or kill them. Its hard to hit them as they constantly phase in and out of  
the visible spectrum. Just go over the bridge and grab the MISSILE EXPANSION
and wait for the door to be opened.                                        

================================
Abandoned Worksite             
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Sporb

Enter the room and look up at the sides of the walls for a new odd looking 
creature on the wall. Its a Sporb, and inactive creature for now. Head along
the Morph Ball path to the right. The Sporb loves round shiny things. It    
tends to grab anything fitting this description, including your Morph Ball. 
It will likely grab you and fling you to the ground. Its head is now exposed,
so unleash a few Missile into it to kill the Sporb. Go back to the Morph Ball
path and climb the way again. You shouldn't have any problems now that the  
Sporb is gone. You will drop down near a tunnel. Head through it to the other
side.                                                                     

You will drop off a ledge on the otherside. Quickly unMorph as another Sporb
wait here, but he isn't of much concern. Go out the next door whenever you 
are ready.                                                                 

================================
Great Bridge             
================================
You will appear at a high ledge once you enter, once again, Great Bridge. In
order to continue with the game you must Scan the Scan Console right next to
the Light door. This will activate a Kinetic Orb Cannon on the other end of 
the room. Jump over to the other end of the room and use the Kinetic Orb   
Cannon to reach a high ledge. 8 Shriekbats will attack you here. Kill them  
all and go through the Dark door.                                          

================================
Temple Access             
================================
Energy Tank:Bomb the block in the middle of the room, which opens a path to 
this item.                                                                

A rather short and thin room. However, you will find a smoking red panel    
near the middle of the room. Place a Bomb on this block to destroy it and  
it will reveal a hole. Fall down the hole if you want, and you will collect 
an ENERGY TANK. However, you will be at the bottom of the room. You need to 
exit via the top door of this room. Head back to Great Bridge and repeat the
process to get back to the top of the room. Head through the other Dark door
when ready.

================================
Torvus Temple             
================================
Almost done! The Super Missile is at the other side of the Temple!!! But  
several security bars blocks it :( You need to kill the 2 lone Space Pirates
attempting to kill you to proceed. When dead, 2 Pirate Aerotroopers will   
fly in to attack you. Kill them both, then lastly, a Pirate Skiff will drop 
off four more Space Pirates. Once everything and everyone has been killed, 
the security bars will dissappear. Go collect the Super Missiles! To use   
your new combo, build up a Charge Beam then push Y to fire a massive blast
of power. This uses up 5 Missiles though, but overall has the power of 9.  
Quite nice, huh? The elevator where the Super Missiles were becomes active 
too. Ride it up then break open the Green Blast Shield and head to the    
next room.

                ~Mission 9:A Nasty Boss Hides the Boost Ball~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:*****/*****
Mission Objective:You just got the Super Missiles, and were about to put   
them to good use in an extremly hard boss battle where you will recover the
Boost Ball. This mission is very short, but the insane difficulty makes up 
for it.                                                                    

================================
Controller Access             
================================
*cough* I do believe you should know the drill by NOW. Bomb the damn Slot   
and move on...                                                             

================================
Torvus Energy Controller             
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Dark Aether

Scan the small emerald Lore-looking hologram in the middle of the room to 
have a Luminoth projected infront of you. He was the protector of Torvus    
until the Ing came...blah blah blah...and then the Ing murdered him without 
a second thought. He will update your Translator files so you can Scan and  
activate Emerald doors, gates, and Lore. Once your done with the talk, leave
the room.                                                                  

================================
Controller Access             
================================
Must I tell you what to do in THIS room? Must I? Well, if you said yes, go 
turn your Gamecube off.                                                    

================================
Torvus Temple             
================================
Jump allllll the way to the bottom floor of the Temple, and Scan the Emerald
hologram in the very center of the Temple. It will reveal another hologram, 
this one the controls to an elevator. Step into the hologram and you will   
find yourself underneath the Temple. Scan down an Emerald gate, and through 
the door behind it.                                                        

================================
Underground Tunnel             
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Our War Begins

Missile Expansion:Once you enter the room, you will be ontop of a grating.  
Roll under it to find the Expansion.                                       

Once you enter this room, you will easily notice the path to the left. Don't
go down it just yet. Instead, get into Morph Ball mode and drop onto the   
floor and roll underneath the metal grating platform you were just standing
on, so you will find a MISSILE EXPANSION. Now, head down the thin pathway   
that's behind you. A Grenchler will appear out of nowhere to ambush you, and
the hallway is so thin its VERY hard to battle him. Get into Morph Ball mode
again if you aren't yet, and quickly roll past him. You'll probably hit him 
once of twice on your way through, but that's okay. Head to the tad bit    
wider opening, then get into Morph Ball mode 1 more time and roll through a 
thin tunnel. At the end, several Sporbs will be waiting. Quickly get out of
Morph Ball mode and run for the nearby Light door. Behind on the wall of the
door is another Luminoth Lore Scan, so Scan it then proceed through the    
Light door.                                                                

================================
Torvus Grove             
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Pirate Commando

Head for the door on the far side of the room. What's this? Stupid security
bars...anyways, 2 Pirate Commando's will slide down a ramp and attack you. 
Fortunately for you, they are pretty much commiting suicide. They are both  
standing right next to 2 Phazon Containers. Blast the containers and both   
Commando's should die. If one or both of them happen to survive the blast,  
a few Charge Beams and they will be gone in no time. Once they have been    
killed, go through the once-barred door.                                    

================================
Meditation Vista             
================================
Activate the Portal device via the Scanner panel thingy. Step through the   
Portal.

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

================================
Gloom Vista             
================================
Exit through the only door.                                                

================================
Polluted Mire             
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Hunter Ing

Step into the room, and 2 new Ing creatures will attack you. These are Hunter
Ing, total pain in the asses to kill. Scan one of them, then start climbing 
the mushroooms that are attached to the tree. Hunter Ing, despite their    
ability to float, won't attack you once you get past the first mushroom so 
don't worry. Its hard to explain the mushroom path, but its quite linear. Go
through the Dark door at the end of the path.                              

================================
Dark Falls             
================================
Save the game at the nearby Save Station. DEFINATELY Save the game. You won't
believe how grateful you will be of this Save Station. Follow the path    
around the room to the top door.                                            

================================
Dark Forgotten Bridge             
================================
Kill the Lightflyers for a brief safe zone, and quickly run through the     
Light door.                                                                

================================
Dark Arena Tunnel             
================================
Get into Morph Ball mode and roll into the tunnel. You will come across a   
path of crumbling blocks, the once you touch them they dissappear. You will 
fall, and its no big deal. Quickly Bomb Jump up to the left ledges, Bomb a  
sand block to destroy it and Jump to the left, and out of the tunnel. Quickly
go through the door!                                                        

================================
Dark Torvus Arena             
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Boost Guardian

***BOSS BATTLE!***
-Boost Guardian

Dark Torvus Temple Key:Inside the wall on the right side of the room. Boost
Ball required to access the Key.                                           

Once you enter the room, you will see a Warrior Ing freak out at the sight  
of Samus, then get into Morph Ball mode and Boost through a small tunnel.   
Jump down into the large halfpipe and into the safe zone there. Wait until 
you have recovered all of your Energy, then go through the tunnel WITH THE  
LIGHT BEAM ACTIVE!!!                                                       

Its now your fight with the Boost Guardian, and he isn't very happy, nor    
easy. Pelt him with a few Charged Light Beam shots. After that he will go  
into the usual Warrior Ing puddle form. You can still hurt him here, so keep
trying to do so. He will reform, then he becomes invincible so save your  
Ammo. He's going into Morph Ball mode! Get into Morph Ball mode right now, or
face a quick death.                                                      

The Boost Guardian will begin doing what he does to his name-Boost around  
the circular arena. He will bounce around the walls several times before   
coming to a stop. If he hit you, or you hit him, you will take about 60    
damage. You may have noticed by now that there's no safe zones at all...so  
you better watch out! After he Boosts 3 times, he will become a reddish-  
brown puddle. He is only vulnerable to your Morph Ball bombs. He will follow
you around the arena until you Bomb him 3 times. This puddle...it does the 
most insane amount of damage in the game. Over 1 Energy Tank of damage if  
you touch it. DON'T LET THAT HAPPEN. After Bombing the puddle 3 times, he 
will resort to Boost again, then puddle, the Boosting, then puddle, then   
FINALLY back to his solid form for about 10 seconds. Yes. You will spend   
a while being unable to hurt him. The entire battle will loop around like   
this until somebody gets killed. While the Boost Guardian is Boosting     
around, he may crash into one of the 4 pillars inside the room. He will    
instantly become his puddle form if this happens, also an Ultra Energy will 
appear (Restores 1 full Energy Tank). However, for each pillar destroyed, 
and Inglet will swarm the field. The pillars, also, never respawn. This    
battle is more of luck and skill then the overall killing of everything.   
Once you have defeated this fearsome boss, pick up the Boost Ball upgrade he
leaves behind.                                                             
***BOOST BALL AQUIRED!***

Head back into the main half pipe, and stand in the safe zone to restore   
some Energy. Get into Morph Ball mode and Use the Boost Ball by holding B  
to make the Morph Ball shine, then release to get a sudden speed burst    
propelling the ball forwards. Use this force to move up and down the half  
pipe. Boost up one side, hold a Boost while coming back down, then release 
to go higher. Eventually, here, you will grab Dark Torvus Temple Key 1.    
Use the half pipe, also, to reach the door of this room, and to thankfully 
leave.                                                                     
***MISSION 9:COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
           ~Mission 10:New Areas to Open-Grabbing the Seeker Missiles~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:*/*****
Mission Objective:We have to massively backtrack all the way back to the    
Temple Grounds to grab the Seeker Missiles upgrade-a Missile combo which   
allows you to lock onto 5 targets at once, and you will be able to open   
Purple Blast Sheild doors. Heh, if you come anywhere near dying on this    
journey your pretty bad at this game. This Mission is very easy, as most    
enemies along the way have been replaced or removed...                      

================================
Dark Arena Tunnel             
================================
Enter the tunnel and go near the crumbling blocks. Build up a Boost, then  
Boost across all the blocks. Head out the door on the otherside assuming   
you didn't fall.                                                          

================================
Dark Forgotten Bridge             
================================
Destroy the Lightflyers to regain a little Energy back, then when ready, go 
through the across door.                                                  

================================
Dark Falls             
================================
Jump off the high ledge and onto the mushroom with the Save Station on it.  
You really should save now. If you forgot to Scan the Boost Guardian like 
the idjit I know you may be, Reset the Gamecube and make sure to do so this
time around. If you did Scan him or don't care about Scans, Save and head out
the Dark door.                                                              

================================
Polluted Mire             
================================
The only way out of this room right now is through the lower door. Jump over
down there, and make sure not to land in the dark waters or get too banged  
up by Hunter Ing that appear, as you will quickly and painfully take massive
damage.                                                                    

================================
Gloom Vista             
================================
Scan the red thingy on the left side of the Portal Device to activate a    
Portal to Light Aether, then go through it.                               

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

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

================================
Meditation Vista             
================================
Nothing of importance is in this room until later in the game, so simply exit
out the door.                                                               

================================
Torvus Grove             
================================
You may be attacked by Dark Pirate Commando's when you enter this room. From 
here on out, some rooms in Torvus Bog have a chance of Dark Pirate Commando's
attacking you. Those rooms include Torvus Grove (What your in now), Great  
Bridge, and Torvus Plaza, amoung others. Anyways, head for the Light door   
on the other side, but don't go through it. You should be on a half-pipe   
right before the door. Boost up to the top of it, then follow the path to  
the left around the room, jumping over gaps, until you reach a Dark door. Go
through it.                                                               

================================
Grove Access            
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Krocuss

You should look to the left in the small pool of water for a small creature,
a Krocuss. They are only vulnerable from behind, when they release the flaps
on their backs. They pose NO threat to you, so ignore them. Make your way up
to the top of the room and through the door.                               

================================
Forgotten Bridge            
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Spinner

Look at the small device on your left. Scan it for another Logbook Scan,  
then enter Morph Ball mode and roll inside the device. This is a Spinner, a
device that when combined with your Boost Ball, activates certain nearby   
objects. Do a few Boosts while in the Spinner to lower a nearby gate. You  
now have easy access to the other portion of Forgotten Bridge and here     
whenever you want. Don't go through it yet, instead continue along the    
allway and through a Missile Door.                                          

================================
Plaza Access            
================================
Missile Expansion:Follow the pathway to a Bomb Slot, activate, and follow  
the new path to another Bomb Slot, activate it, then follow the path and up
a half-pipe.

This room is connected to Torvus Plaza, but we don't need to go there yet  
as we don't have the required items for the Expansions in it. Instead, stay
in Plaza Access. Follow the really obvious path forwards until you fall down
to a Bomb Slot. Activate it. This will rotate a platform, which gives you  
access to an upper portion of the maze. Follow the path, Bomb Jumping when  
necessary, then Bomb the next Bomb Slot you come to. his will rotate       
another platform, giving you access to a small hole in the wall. Bomb Jump 
into the hole and roll into a half-pipe. The Expansion is at the top left  
side of the half-pipe, so start Boosting. Eventually you will reach the top,
so claim the MISSILE EXPANSION that lies there. Exit out of the room      
afterwards.                                                                

================================
Forgotten Bridge            
================================
Head back to the Spinner and to the spot where you lowered the gate not too
long ago. Jump out of the opening, and down to a watery landing. Don't bother
with the Grenchler's, instead make a beeline for the Light door not too far
away.                                                                      

================================
Ruined Alcove            
================================
Run for the other Light door. Make a Space Jump over the Grenchler to     
(hopefully) avoid damage.                                                  

================================
Torvus Lagoon            
================================
Ohes noes! 2 Grenchlers have invaded this room! They are underwater, though,
and won't jump out of it until you get near the water. Make a Space Jump   
over to land, then to the ledge that leads to Save Station A because       
Saving is good.                                                             

================================
Save Station A            
================================
Save the game and restore your Energy. You won't be seeing any other Save   
Stations for this Mission...                                               

================================
Torvus Lagoon            
================================
Now that your all fully healed, head out through the blue door on the ground
to...

================================
Temple Transport Access            
================================
Several Shreikbats will attack you on sight, so kill them and move through to
the other door.                                                             

================================
Transport to Temple Grounds            
================================
Head up the elevator.                                                      

================================
Transport to Torvus Bog            
================================
Still nothiong here. Exit the room.                                        

================================
Torvus Transport Access            
================================
Nothing here...again. Besides a few War Wasps, proceed through to the other
door.                                                                      

================================
Path of Eyes           
================================
There is a green door in the middle of this room but it won't be of        
importance until much later. Instead, use the Morph Ball "shortcut" (The   
hole in the wall near the door) to take you to the other side of the room. 
Blast off the Super Missile shield that once hindered us before, and go   
through the exposed door.                                                  

================================
Hall of Eyes           
================================
Run quickly to the other side of the room, ignoring the pesky War Wasps if  
you want to.                                                               

================================
Meeting Grounds           
================================
Walk along the path until you reach a blue glassed area you should be     
standing on. This is a half-pipe if you couldn't tell alrwady. Boost to the 
top of it. If you land on the side with no small Morph Ball hole, Space    
Jump to the other side and get into Morph Ball mode, and start rolling      
through the hole.                                                          

================================
Service Access           
================================
Don't go crusing through the room just yet. Go pretty slowly until you reach
a line of crumbling blocks much like you saw a while ago after beating the  
Boost Guardian. Make a Boost across all of them. After that, simply roll    
through the tunnel as fast as you can until you reach what seems like a dead
end, but there's actually a ledge above you. Bomb Jump up to it, and      
through the hole. If you happen to fall down from the blocks, goto the left
and out a door, and you will be in a room that is connected to Meeting    
Grounds, and try again.                                                    

================================
Path of Honor           
================================
Simply roll through the straight tunnel to the end, where a small door blocks
your way. It will open after several seconds, so just be patient if it    
doesn't open the second you get there...                                    

================================
Hall of Honored Dead           
================================
Yep. There it is. In the center of the room, protected by high defense      
glass, is the Seeker Missile upgrade. To break the glass, though, you must 
make all of the rings surrounding the glass gold. How? By using all four of 
the Spinners that dot the edge of the room. Its not a hard puzzle         
actually.                                                                   

Morph Ball over to the Red Spinner and Boost several times until the middle 
rings turn gold. Once they are both gold and glowing, use a Bomb to       
propel yourself out of the Spinner. Move over to the Yellow Spinner.       
Use the Boost ability several times until you inner rings turn golden, then
use a Bomb to get out of the Spinner. Then, move over to the Blue Spinner  
and use the Boost Ball several times to make some outer rings golden.      
Get out of the Spinner, and finally head over to the Purple Spinner and you 
should know what to do. After these rings are gold, all of them should be  
gold. Now, a huge cirular pillar will rise out of the ground, with several 
Luminoth warrior having their "visors" (eyes if you must) shining down.     
The red glass of the pillar magnifies the shine of the light, and causes it
to be very destructive. Lucky for us they are pointing right at the glass 
surrounding the Seeker Missiles, effectively breaking it. Go ahead and grab
the combo (You earn an extra 5 Missiles with it!). To use the Seeker Missiles
you need to hold down the Y Button (To avoid wasting a Missile, go into Morph
Ball mode, hold Y, exit Morph Ball mode, and you don't waste any Missiles).
Now, a small light blue charge appears on your beam, and an orange reticule
appears. You can target up to 5 different things, or the same thing more than
once if you wish. Once you have the desired targets, release Y to send 1   
Missile at every target (Up to 5 Missile can be shot). Use this tatcic on the
Purple Sheild door. Target all 5 dots surrounding the door at once to      
destroy the shielding. Head out the door.

Mission Difficulty:****/*****
Mission Objective:We will be heading into the lower areas of Torvus Bog.   
In there we will find many...evil bastards and stuff that will rip your   
head off. No joke. This is a painfully hard Mission, and a really long one 
at that. The item at the end of our journey will stop water from hindering 
our movement, which is kinda useful.

Path of Honor

There isn't anything of importance in this room. Just proceed through with 
no honorable mention...                                                   

================================
Service Access           
================================
Its that time again! Sidequest time!!! If you want to continue with the     
normal route (SAY NO PLZ), then enter the small tube on the right with a    
Morph Ball Bomb Jump, and go through to the other side and through that    
door. Otherwise, head through the door infront of you and look at the      
indented section.

     Scan the dead Luminoth to the right of you, then jump off the ledge and
     to your Ship. Save and refill your Ammo, then head out the other door  
     of the room.

     Hive Access Tunnel

     Time to relive an old memory. Head to the path on the right, and down 
     the hole.

     Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Missile Trooper

     Missile Expansion:Defeat the Dark Missile Trooper

     Head into the room and you will see the Ing possess a Missile Trooper. 
     Its a mini-boss, and a 1-Time Only Scan, so be sure to take care of   
     that. This boss has a health bar, but is pretty puh-thetic. About 4-5 
     Super Missiles and he is dead. Retieve the MISSILE EXPANSION he drops 
     before leaving the room.                                              

     ================================
     Hive Tunnel           
     ================================
     Several Splinters are in this room, but they are NO threat by any means.
     Goto the other door.                                                   

     ================================
     Command Chamber           
     ================================
     Yeah. There are these pointless rooms. Head through the door on a left-
     side path.                                                            

     ================================
     Hive Storage

     Blast some of the crates for Missile Ammo and Energy as you make your  
     way to the other door.

     Hive Chamber B

     Missile Expansion:Bomb a nearby cracked hole, the follow its passageway
     to the Expansion.                                                     

     Head for the other side of the room. When you get to a dead end, get  
     into Morph Ball mode and before entering the tunnel, Bomb the cracked 
     block next to it. This reveals a hole that leads to a MISSILE EXPANSION.
     Head back out of the hole, and through the other, and then through the
     door.

     Hive Chamber C

     If you want to, go Save the game in Hive Save Station, but otherwise   
     head for the OTHER door.                                          

     ================================
     Hive Transport Area           
     ================================
     Hop on the elevator and ride it to the top. At the top, turn around.   
     Go through the path and door on the right.                            

     ================================
     Hive Access Tunnel           
     ================================
     We were here not too long ago...anyways, nothing much here..just access
     to the...                                                             

     ================================
     Landing Site           
     ================================
     I recommend Saving again, and restoring any lost Missiles. Once your  
     done, look to the left and at the ledge that has the door you need to
     access. To get up there, use the Light Beam on the purple crystal to  
     have a platform come out. Use the platform as an aid in getting to    
     the door.                                                             

     ================================
     Service Access           
     ================================
     There are some annoying Lumites in this room. Them bastards! They will
     cause you some trouble, so kill them all. Once you have, look to the 
     left for a tube on the ground. Make a Bomb Jump up to and inside it. 
     Roll through the tunnel, and you'll drop down near the middle. Bomb   
     Jump to the left and head through the tunnel, then the door at the end
     of it.                                                                

================================
Meeting Grounds           
================================
Head over to the left, towards the half-pipe. Lovely...Dark Pirate Commando's
have invaded this room. They shouldn't pose a threat as you make your way to
the Hall of Eyes.

================================
Hall of Eyes           
================================
Yawn...jump up the low ledge and go through the door we've been through many
times already...                                                           

================================
Path of Eyes           
================================
Turn to the left and enter Morph Ball mode. Make your way up the shortcut  
hill. Once you reach the end of it, un-Morph and go through the nearby door
leading to...                                                              

================================
Torvus Transport Access           
================================
Nothing much in this room besides some beautiful scenery. Head for the other
door.

================================
Temple Transport Access           
================================
3 more Shreikbats are nested in this room. Kill them all, then proceed out 
the other door.                                                            

================================
Torvus Lagoon           
================================
The Grenchlers in this room are likely to pop out of the water and rush at 
you...which is pretty bad. Jump on the ledge on the left, and head to the  
Save Station.                                                               

================================
Save Station A           
================================
Save the game and replenish any lost Energy, then proceed back to Torvus   
Lagoon.                                                                    

================================
Torvus Lagoon           
================================
From the ledge you are standing on, you are able to Space Jump over to the 
bridge on the right. Do so, and go through the door leading to the Portal  
Chamber.                                                                   

================================
Portal Chamber           
================================
Roll through the tunnel, pretending that the pesky Missile Expansion doesn't
exist...                                                                   

================================
Great Bridge           
================================
Jump over to the ledge on the left, the one with the Kinetic Orb Cannon.   
Don't go in it-instead Scan down the Luminoth Emerald Gate and go through the
door behind it.                                                             

================================
Torvus Map Station           
================================
Step into the hologram to download the Torvus Bog map. Quite big, the rest 
of the Bog, right? Exit out the door.                                       

================================
Great Bridge           
================================
Look to the left, at the lower blue door. Go through it, avoiding any pesky
Grenchlers if any.                                                        

================================
Temple Access           
================================
Roll through the short tunnel, using a Bomb Jump or two when you need to, and
go out the door.                                                           

================================
Torvus Temple           
================================
There are several pathways in the area under the Temple, but the path we    
want is hard to describe. One path leads to a Purple Sheild Door, which    
leads to an elevator back to Agon Wastes which is pointless right now.     
The other leads to Underground Tunnel which we don't want. Go through the 
last Morph Ball tunnel, and through the door at the end of it (Its a hard  
to miss path).                                                             

================================
Underground Transport           
================================
Activate the elevator then step in the hologram and ride it down. Then go 
through the bottom door.                                                    

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Uh...how did this get here? Where did all the water come from? Let's refrain
from asking questions. The lower areas of Torvus Bog is flooded with slow- 
your-ass-down water, and your gonna like it. First off, head up the moving 
platforms until you reach the top of the room, and go through a door that   
is up there.                                                               

================================
Save Station B           
================================
Save the game, and replenish any Energy you may have lost, then go right    
back out the door.

================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Blogg
Logbook Creatures Scan:Preed

Missile Expansion:Infront of a Purple Shield Door

Flying around the room are Preed's, worth a Scan. Whenever your ready, jump
off the platform into the water. You should see some big black creatures   
floating around. These are Blogg's, bastards who will ram you and give you 
lotsa pain. Avoid at all costs (Scan of course). Anyways, on the platform  
underwater, look for a Purple Blast Shielded door. Make a Space Jump to that
door, holding forwards the entire time. You won't make it, but you should 
land on a lower platform with a Scan console. Scan it, and a platform infront
of the Purple Shield Door will appear. Drop to the bottom of the Station 
and try to find a current on the side of the walls. In Morph Ball mode, roll
into this current to be propelled onto a higher platform. Make a Space Jump 
to a large, center platform. Enter the Kinetic Orb Cannon there to be blasted
to the top of the room. Go back into the water, and open up the Purple     
Shielded Door, then grab the MISSILE EXPANSION right infront of it before 
going through the door.                                                    

================================
Training Access           
================================
It is quite a short room. No tricks here...just proceed through to the    
other door.                                                                

================================
Training Chamber           
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Recovering Energy

Look at the right side of the room when you enter it to find a Luminoth    
Lore Projecter, good for another Scan. When that's done, jump into the water.
It helps immensely to kill both Bloggs. Simply wait for one to charge at you,
then pop a Missile into its mouth right before it collides with you. Once 
both are dead, enter the Spinner at the bottom of the room. The idea is to 
rotate the table around to match up with either the blue or red paths. You 
want to save the easier blue path for last, so spin to the red path, then 
follow it through the door.                                                

================================
Transit Tunnel East           
================================
Launch yourself into the large tubing area via the Kinetic Orb Cannon. At the
other side, go through the door.                                          

================================
Catacombs           
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:G-Sch's Testament
Logbook Lore Scan:The New Terror

Look to the upper left corner from where you standing of your screen to see 
another Luminoth Lore Projector, good for another Scan. Jump down into the 
water when ready. 2 more Blogg's are in this room, but they shouldn't be   
too much of a threat. Make your way to the other side of the room, and up   
some underwater platforms to re-surface. You should see another dead       
Luminoth nearby, for another Scan. Head through the Dark door whenever your
done Scanning.

================================
Catacombs Access           
================================
Nothing much is in this reall short room...except several Preed's you should
avoid...                                                                    

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Bloggling

Scan the Scan Console infront of you to release another platform. Only one 
more Scan Console to go! Take this oppertunity to float down near the bottom
and into the Kinetic Orb Cannon, and to the top of the room. Go inside the 
upper door.                                                                

================================
Save Station B           
================================
Save the game, and replenish any lost Energy. You probably lost a lot, right?
Exit the room.                                                             

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Jump into the water, then go through the only blue door down there, for the
last time....                                                              

================================
Training Access           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Seedburster

As your walking through the room, a bunch of small enemies on the ceiling  
will be spitting things at you. Scan the Seedbursters, then proceed through
the other door.                                                            

================================
Training Chamber           
================================
Jump into the water and kill the Blogg's again if they happened to reappear.
Get into the Spinner and change the passageway until it is aligned with the
Blue Path. Get out of the Spinner and follow the passageway to a Light door,
and go through it.                                                         

================================
Transit Tunnel West           
================================
Head into the hologram to be shot into the Transit Tunnel. Use a Bomb on a 
small block that leads to a passage to a Bomb Slot. Activate the Slot to   
change the fans, so you will be able to pass through to the other side of the
room, and out the door.                                                     

================================
Gathering Hall           
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:New Weapons

Drop down into the murky waters and defeat the single Blogg that resides   
there. Head over to the other side of the room, where a Luminoth Lore     
Projector lies, with another Scan it is...projecting. In the water, look   
towards the surface. You should be able to lock onto 2 crystals. Shoot both
of these crystals with a Dark Beam shot to flip them over as usable       
platforms. Get out of the water, and use these platforms to cross to the   
other side of the room. There is a Bomb Slot on this side of the room, and 
activating it lowers some bars that guarded a Portal underwater. Once that 
is done, head back into the water, and activate the Portal, then step      
through it.                                                                 

================================
Crypt           
================================
2 Dark Pirate Commando's are this this room...but ignore them as they are a
pain to kill and you won't be here very long. Simply jump onto the platform
nearby on the right, then jump onto the platform above the Portal. There is 
a laser device here, a Spinner below it. Get in the Spinner and Boost a few
times, which will change the path of the laser for Light and Dark Aether. 
Head back through the Portal.                                            

================================
Gathering Hall           
================================
Kill the Blogg in the water if you feel like it, then use the Dark Beam on 
the crystals to flip them over once more. Get out of the water, then use the
platforms to cross the room again. Moving the laser activated a nearby     
Kinetic Orb Cannon. Without haste, get in the cannon, and go out the nearby 
Light door when you land.                                                  

================================
Gathering Access           
================================
Another quickie room. Simply proceed to the other side, avoiding the other 
enemies along the way.                                                     

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Scan the final Scan Console infront of you. This causes the huge platform  
infront of you to rise, revealing a door at the very bottom of the room!   
Its impossible to Save right now...so you have no choice but to go through 
that one door.                                                              

================================
Hydrodynamo Shaft           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Alpha Blogg

Inside the cage walls (On the left side of the room) you will find the Alpha
Blogg. He's not a nice one, is he? Continue down all of the stairs and out 
the bottom door.                                                          

================================
Main Hydrochamber           
================================
Drop down to the left side of the room, and go through the lone door that 
is there.                                                                   

================================
Hydrochamber Storage           
================================
Grab the Gravity Boost from the middle of the room. the Gravity Boost is by
far the best Water-built technology in any Metroid game. Not only does this
look cool on the back of your suit, it elminates the need for a Gravity   
Suit. As an added bonus, after a Space Jump, hold B to slowly rise        
underwater for a few seconds. After testing out your new toy, leave the    
room.                                                                      
***GRAVITY BOOST:AQUIRED!***

================================
Main Hydrochamber           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Alpha Blogg(If you already Scanned it, its not new)

As soon as you enter the room, the exits are blocked off and the Alpha    
Blogg will swim down into the Hydrochamber. BOSS TIME! The Alpha Blogg is  
really, really hard. As in not easy. He attacks like a normal Blogg. You   
kill him like a normal Blogg. What's so hard then? The fact he will quickly
depleat your Energy, that's what. He will usually use a few sonic bubbles, 
which if they hit you make your visor very staticy for a few seconds. Then
the bastard will lunge at you. Stand in the middle of the arena, have a    
Charge Beam ready, and wait for his ram attack. When he rears back, launch 
the Super Missile. If done correctly, it should damage him. Just repeat this
process until he dies. If you run outta Missiles, use the Charge Beam. After
the battle, a nearby fan will retract into the wall. Use your Gravity Boost
to go around the room, platform to platform until you reach the top of the  
room. Go out the door.                                                    
***MISSION 11:COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  ~Mission 12:Lower Dark Torvus, and a Mean Grenchler-For the Grapple Beam~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:***/*****
Mission Objective:Time to get ourselves an old Super Metroid favorite-the 
Grapple Beam. Another crappy guardian...guards it. Despite his freaky looks,
he's a big pushover. The path to the Grapple Beam isn't fiercely long, so 
you should have little problem.                                            

================================
Hydrodynamo Shaft           
================================
Jump up the few ledges until you come to a group of Hydlings. Look above 
and behind you. You should see a high ledge. Use the Gravity Boost to get 
up there. Use a Dark Beam shot to make the Portal active, then when ready   
step through it.                                                           

================================
Undertemple Access           
================================
Dark Torvus Temple Key:Right. In. Front of you.

Step forwards and grab the Dark Torvus Temple Key 2 that's just sitting there
and go back through the Portal.                                            

================================
Hydrodynamo Shaft           
================================
Use your newly aquired Gravity Boost to propel you up the stairs and around
to the top of the room. Use the swimming enemies in this room to restore any
lost Energy, Missiles, or Ammo you feel like replenishing right now. Once   
your done, go through the top door.                                         

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
With the Gravity Boost, you won't need to worry about the lost Kinetic Orb  
Cannon that is inaccessable. Instead, Boost several times, up multiple     
platforms, to the very top of the water. Get out, and go through the door   
leading to the Save Station.                                                

================================
Save Station B           
================================
It would be horrid getting killed now....so I highly suggest you Save the   
game. Head back out the door.                                              

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Jump down back into the water (We're gonna be here a while. Get used to it).
Swim over to the Dark Beam door with your new gear, blast the door, then   
proceed through.                                                           

================================
Catacombs Access           
================================
Be sure to dodge the annoying Preed's here, or you will quickly depleat much
of your Energy. Dodge them, or kill them from a distance, then proceed      
through the other door.                                                    

================================
Catacombs           
================================
Jump down into the water, and stay clear of the Grenchlers. Look around to 
the left until you see a path leading into the wall. It'll seem to come to  
a dead end, but if you look up you should see a Bomb Slot that was        
inaccessable without the Gravity Boost. Jump up to it, then Bomb Jump into  
the slot and place a Bomb. The bars blocking the Portal in this room will  
lower, giving you access to it. Jump out of the water then activate the    
Portal and head through.

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

================================
Dungeon           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Grenchler

A few Dark Grenchlers lurk in this room. Scan them if you wish. They have   
about the same amount of health as a normal Grenchler, and do the same     
amount of damage. Look to the right, and use a nearby platform to reach a   
ledge with a blue door. Head through it.                                   

================================
Undertransit Two           
================================
Bomb Jump into the Undertransit. Work your way to the other side of the room
without getting crushed by the giant pistons. Of course...if one manages to
hit you its okay, you just get pushed away far with no damage. Work quickly-
the atmosphere is chipping away at your Energy! Head out the door once you  
reach the other side.                                                      

================================
Sacrificial Chamber           
================================
STOMP. Hmmm.....yup. That IS indeed the Grapple Guardian you hear on the    
above floor. Lucky for you, he can't hit you down here. A Hunter Ing will  
appear out of the dark waters. Just evade it and run to the other side of   
the room without damage.                                                    

================================
Undertransit One           
================================
Missile Expansion:Perform several Bomb Jumps up unseen holes in the tubes to
reach this Expansion.                                                      

Bomb Jump ito the Kinetic Orb Cannon to be blasted into another Undertransit.
This one however is a bit tricky. You will first see 3 long pipes extending
across the length of the Undertransit. Hold left to fall through unseen    
holes in the pipes. Once you reach the bottom, you can continue to hold left
and perform Bomb Jumps to reach the top of the Undertransit and exit out the
room. Do that if you wish, but if you want a Missile Expansion, stay tuned. 
Go slightly left of the middle of the room. Perform a Bomb Jump and hold   
right to Bomb Jump into another area of the tube. Keep holding right, as    
well with Bomb Jumps to reach a MISSILE EXPANSION. If you can find the right
place to Bomb Jump at first, keep Jumping until you stumble upon where to go,
then make your way to the Expansion. Get out of the room like I said a few 
sentences ago.                                                             

================================
Crypt           
================================
Use a Dark Beam shot on the crystal, which will de-activate the sheild that 
was blocking you as well as make several platforms around the outer edges  
of the room active. Yay. However, several Dark Pirate Commando's will appear
to attack you. Quickly move around the room! The platforms are moving in and
out of the wall so you need to act fast. If you fall off, you can find     
platforms leading back to your starting spot. Kill the Pirates if they are  
really causing a pain, as you make your way to the only other upper door of
this room.                                                                 

================================
Crypt Tunnel           
================================
Venom Weed, the same from Metroid Prime, lives in this room. Like before, use
a shot near them to have the tentacles retract into the ground for a few   
seconds. Once that happens, quickly run to the other end of the room before 
it is too late.                                                            

================================
Undertemple Shaft           
================================
Like in Hydrodynamo Station, jump down kinda near the bottom of the room and
look for a Kinetic Orb Cannon on the pillar which will launch you to the   
top of the room. From here, head into the uper door to Save Station 2 and  
save the game.                                                             

================================
Save Station 2           
================================
I URGE you to Save the game. It will be a damn good thing you did once you  
see what happens soon...Head back out the door.                             

================================
Undertemple Shaft           
================================
Jump down onto the metal grating. Look around for a hole in the grating, then
fall through it into a safe zone. A long path should be seen infront of you,
which leads to the center turbine of the room. There is a Bomb Slot here.  
Activate it to switch the path around, which makes it lead to a different   
door. Get out of the Slot, and walk over to the Light door, shoot it, and  
head through.                                                              

================================
Sacrificial Chamber Tunnel           
================================
Nothing much here besides piles of Venom Weed. Shoot them to clear a path 
to the other door.                                                          

================================
Sacrifical Chamber           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Grapple Guardian
Logbook Research Scan:Grapple Point (Only Scannable after accuiring the    
Grapple Beam)

Head over to one of the safe zones, and the large Grapple Guardian will pop
out of a corner and start (slowly) walking at your position. Scan the     
Grapple Guardian. I don't care if you don't want to-its impossible to beat
him if you don't. Scanning him reveals his eye (On his mouth) which is now
Lock-On able. Shoot him with several Charge Beam shots until he becomes    
pissed off. He will try to use the Grapple Beam on you now. Position the 
large, blue, electrical pillar between you and him and wait for the Grapple 
Beam to become ensnared in the pillar and rendering Grappley immobile for 
a few seconds. Run behind him and unleash a Super Missile into his tail, 
or several Light Beam charged shots. Either one works. He will break off of
the pillar and continue to chase you. Continue this pattern several times 
until he has less than 1/4th of his health left.                            

At this point, the Grapple Guardian will do what all Grenchlers do-have their
tail break off. The Grapple Guardian is very pissed now, and will begin    
stomping faster towards you. Always be on guard. He will not be doing his  
Grapple Beam anymore, except to draw you close to him so he can bite you. As
you can see, the electrical current has been shut off. Stun him via his eye
and he will stop moving for a few seconds. Most of his body is vulnerable  
at this time. Shoot him with whatever you have left. After a few more rounds
of doing this, he will finally die. Pick up the Grapple Beam he leaves    
behind. Now, the room will shift around a little so you can access the door 
out of here. Look up, and Scan the Grapple Point. It looks like a big "L" 
with a circle around it. When your close to this point, it will turn Blue. 
Hold L to Grapple on to the point. Use to Control Stick to control the     
direction you swing in. Swing over to the door (Let go of L to stop        
Grappling) and through the door.                                          
***GRAPPLE BEAM ACCQUIRED!***
***MISSION 12 COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
           ~Mission 13:Black Holes, Anyone?-To the Darkburst!~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:N/A
Mission Objective:A side mission this is. Its all for a powerful power-up.  
You can skip this mission freely and head right to the begining of Mission 
14. However, you are missing out an some Scan's, Expansions, and the      
Darkburst by doing so. Its your choice. I suggest you do this mission, but 
skip it if you want to.                                                   

================================
Sacrifical Chamber Tunnel          
================================
There's still the massive amount of Venom Weed blocking your way to the    
other side. Just blast away to have them clear away and go through the door 
at the other end.                                                          

================================
Undertemple Shaft           
================================
Use a few Space Jumps, and test out your new Grapple Beam. Head to the top 
door of the room.                                                         

================================
Save Station 2           
================================
After such an annoying boss you BETTER Save the game. Head back out the door
once your done.                                                             

================================
Undetemple Shaft           
================================
There is a Light door in this room on a ledge that's inaccessable. Or is it?
Use the Grapple Beam to swing on over to it, and blast the door. Head       
through the door.                                                           

================================
Crypt Tunnel           
================================
More and more freaking Venom Weed. Blast it all as you make your way to the
other end of the room.                                                     

================================
Crypt           
================================
Stupid and lame Dark Pirate Commando's....Anyways, pay non of your attention
to them, and jump over to the platform with the Portal. Activate it, then  
step through it.

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

================================
Gathering Hall           
================================
...and now we have a split path. You can continue on with the game like you 
normally should on this Mission...or you can get side-tracked for a new    
Scan and an Energy Tank. Your choice. If you want to continue with the game,
use the Grapple Beam to reach the Kinetic Orb Cannon of the room to be shot
up to a Light door. Follow the path to Hydrodynamo Station (The sidequest   
will end there too). If you want to do the sidequest, exit through the only
other blue door near you in this room.                                     

     ================================
     Transit Tunnel West           
     ================================
     Get into the Orb Cannon to get blasted into the Transit. Use the Boost 
     Ball or a Bomb to break the blue block which will clear a path to the
     Bomb Slot, which will switch the direction of the fans which will allow
     you to reach the other side :)                                        

     ================================
     Training Chamber           
     ================================
     Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Blogg

     As soon as you enter the room, the Ing will posses the Blogg's in this
     room turning them into (gasp) Dark Blogg's. They have twice as much   
     health as a normal Blogg, and are much stronger. Scan them, then use the
     Gravity Boost to jump over the fence, then go over the other fence and
     through the Dark door.                                                

     ================================
     Transit Tunnel East           
     ================================
     Energy Tank:Activate the high Bomb Slot to switch the currents, leading
     to the Energy Tank.                                                  

     In the first vertical tube you reach, you should easily be able to see
     an upward current. This will massively propel the Morph Ball after a  
     Bomb Jump in it. Do a Bomb Jump up to the Bomb Slot and activate it. 
     Now, the fourth vertical tube from the right has an upwards current,  
     but only for about 20 seconds. Quickly make your way over there and   
     start Bomb Jumping. Your gonna have to time the Double, and sometimes 
     Triple Bomb Jumps correctly to get propelled all the way to the top of
     the shaft where you will claim a ENERGY TANK. If the timer runs out,  
     re-activate the Bomb Slot. Go out the other side of Transit Tunnel, you
     know, the one you didn't use to come in.                              

     ================================
     Catacombs           
     ================================
     Jump into the water and quickly make your way to the other side,     
     hopefully dodging the Grenchlers that lurk in the waters. Once your out
     on the other side, go through the Dark Beam door to the right of you   
     (Not leading to more Transit's!).                                    

     ================================
     Catacombs Access           
     ================================
     Head through this simple room to Hydrodynamo Station.

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Use the Gravity Boost to get out of the water. Thankfully, we won't be     
diving into anything for a very long time. Space Jump up to the top door   
of the room.

Save the game in this Save Station and take a moment to look at the bottom-
less pit below the Station. Heh, pretty cool right? Anyways, leave once your
done here.                                                                

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Last time we'll be here for about 10 missions, so Space Jump over to the    
other side and go through the only other door in this room that isn't      
underwater.                                                                 

================================
Underground Transport           
================================
Ride the elevator up and go through the door.                              

================================
Torvus Temple           
================================
Roll through the small tunnel infront of you, then turn to the right and    
Morph Bal under a tree branch. You will be infront of a Purple Blast Door. 
Use the Seeker Missiles on all 5 targets. This is a pretty hard door to open
because you can't be very far back from the door to give the Missiles room 
to seek their targets. Keep trying-it usually takes me several tries to    
eventually unlock the door. Once the door shield has been broken off, go   
right through it.                                                          

================================
Transport to Agon Wastes           
================================
Scan the Scan Console to activate the elevator to Agon Wastes. Step onto  
the elevator...

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

================================
Transport to Torvus Bog          
================================
Use the Seeker Missiles again to shoot all the targets above the door. Go  
through the door when its opened.                                          

================================
Transport Center          
================================
Jump down below and get into the Morph Ball. Use the Boost Ball to get up   
the really high half-pipe. Once you reach the very top of it, go through   
the Portal.                                                                

================================
Crossroads           
================================
Missile Expansion:Right infront of you.

Right infront of your face is a MISSILE EXPANSION. Grab it, and jump down. 
Head out the left door.                                                    

================================
Portal Site           
================================
We weren't in Dark Agon Wastes very long, were we? Several stupidly        
annying Dark Pirate Troopers will ambush you. You can try to ignore them, but
if you can't avoid damage then use several Charge Beam shots on each of    
them to kill them. Once that's done, hop up near the Portal Machine, activate
it, and go through.                                                         

================================
Portal Terminal           
================================
Head for the back of the room, and out the right side door. Avoid the War   
Wasps as you go along.                                                     

================================
Portal Access A           
================================
Nothing much in here besides several Kinetic Orb Cannons. Get in the first 
one to be transported to the other side of the room. Once you are, simple  
head out the door.                                                         

================================
Mining Station A           
================================
Two Pirate Aerotroopers are in this room. Kill them both, and dodge their  
suicide attemps into you. Once both are clear, head across the room to the  
top, and out the upper door.                                               

================================
Temple Access           
================================
Take out the Shriekbats before they hit you, then proceed through this    
empty room.                                                                

================================
Agon Temple           
================================
Use the path to the left until you reach an indented area in the wall. Open 
the Dark door and go through.                                              

================================
Mine Shaft           
================================
If you went on a side-quest about 8 Missions ago, the you should already have
gotten the Energy Tank in this room. If you haven't and you really want it, 
go look for the indented section that talks about getting this Tank in the  
Agon Wastes Missions. Either way, simply roll around to the bottom of the   
room and open the door with Seeker Missiles.                               

================================
Mining Station B           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Kralee
Logbook Lore Scan:The Stellar Object

Follow the path to the right and jump off the ledge. Look nearby for a Scan 
Console and Scan it. This will activate a Kinetic Orb Cannon back to the   
exit of this room. Don't use it now though. Continue into the main area of 
the room, the area with the large Mining Drill. Look around for a small     
enemy that keeps appearing and disspeearing. Scan the Kralee, then head to  
the back of the room with a half-pipe. Activate the Scan Console which will 
make another Kinetic Orb Cannon appear nearby. Remember this location. Head
back into the Main Drill section and find a Bomb Slot. Activate the Bomb Slot
to make another Bomb Slot active.                                         

Your under a timer-so hurry! Run back to the Kinetic Orb Cannon you activated
not too long ago to be blasted up to a higher area of the room with a      
Luminoth Lore projecter and another Bomb Slot. Activate the slot-this will 
stop the spinning drill and raise it higher, breaking off some rock revealing
a Portal. Scan the Lore then head back to the half-pipe. Boost up the left  
side of it until your on a ledge. Follow the ledge until you drop onto the  
Mining Crane. From here it is a simple walk to the Portal, activate it, and
go through.                                                                 

================================
Trial Grounds           
================================
Turn to the left and wait for all of the Nightbarbs to finish flying out of
the crack. Once they are done, go through where they were coming from and  
jump onto a ledge to the left. Keep following the easy path, activating   
safe zones along the way until you reach the only door in this room. Go    
through it.                                                                

================================
Dark Transit Station           
================================
Nothing much here. Just a ton of Nightbarbs flying around a circular tube   
which you must roll through. Quickly do so and through to the other room   
without too much damage.                                                   

================================
Duelling Range           
================================
We have been in this rooom before. A long long time ago. Except no were on 
the other side of the barred gate. Hehehe. Activate the Portal nearby back 
to Light Aether.                                                            

================================
Mining Plaza           
================================
There's no going back now (As if we want to) as there's no more Portal    
behind you. No choice but to go out the nearby door.                       

================================
Transit Station           
================================
Roll through this tunnel much like you did before. Those annoying Sandbats 
will try to hurt you on the way through. Just go out through the door at the
other end.                                                                

================================
Mining Station B           
================================
Darkburst:Right infront of you.

Head into the room and (finally) grab the DARKBURST from the ledge. Right 
now, 2 Pirate Aerotroopers will attack you. You can use your new toy out on 
them, but it wastes 30 Dark Ammo and 5 Missiles. If you don't want to waste 
anything, kill them the normal way. Either way, head out the through the top
of the room back to Mine Shaft via the unused Kinetic Orb Cannon still in  
this room.                                                                 
***DARKBURST ACQUIRED!***
***MISSION 13:COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
            ~Mission 14:The Dark Visor Lies in a Dark World....~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:****/*****
Mission Objective:And now its about time we wrapped up Torvus, don't you   
think? The Mission will start where Mission 13 left off. If you skipped     
Mission 13, then head down to Torvus Temple in this Mission and follow the 
path from there. Ready for a long trek?                                    

================================
Mine Shaft           
================================
And we start our next mission in another boring shaft. Use Bomb Jump after
Bomb Jump to continue on the path around the room until you reach the exit
back to the Temple.                                                        

================================
Agon Temple           
================================
Use the path on the right until you see a blue door on your right. Go through
this door.                                                                 

================================
Temple Access           
================================
Nothing much here except suicidal Shreikbats. Kill them all off then proceed
through the room.                                                           

================================
Mining Station A           
================================
Kill both of the Pirate Aerotrooper's if you want to, then proceed through 
the door near the middle of the room on the walls, which leads to Portal   
Access A.                                                                  

================================
Portal Access A           
================================
Roll into the Kinetic Orb Cannon to be launched to the other side of the room
then go out the door there.                                                

================================
Portal Terminal           
================================
We're not here to use the Portal. Just cross the room to the other side and 
out the other door.                                                        

================================
Transport Center           
================================
Cross through this room to the other side.                                  

================================
Save Station A           
================================
Its a long way to the next Save Station, so its wise to Save now and not   
worry later. Head back to the Transport Center.                            

================================
Transport Center           
================================
Head onto the half-pipe and Boost up until you reach a ledge (Not the one  
with the Portal). Go through the door.                                     

================================
Transport to Torvus Bog           
================================
Head onto the elevator back to Torvus Bog.                                  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
|                                                                          |

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

================================
Transport to Agon Wastes           
================================
Head out the door infront of you.                                          

================================
Torvus Temple           
================================
Use the Morph Ball to roll under the branch, then head to the right and     
through the blue door.                                                      

================================
Temple Access           
================================
Not much in here except a boring Morph Ball tunnel. Just Bomb Jump your way
through it.                                                                

================================
Great Bridge           
================================
Look to the right and jump onto the ledge with the Kinetic Orb Cannon. Use 
it to be blasted to a higher ledge then stand on the bridge. Space Jump over
to the Light door.                                                         

================================
Abandoned Worksite           
================================
Missile Expansion:Use the Grapple Beam to swing from a high ledge to a     
normally inaccessable ledge with the Expansion.                            

Walk into the room, but jump onto any ledges just yet. Instead, get into  
the water and look up at a Grapple Point. Space Jump so that your high     
enough to Lock-On to the Grapple Point and use your Grapple Beam. While    
swinging, direct yourself to a ledge behind you and let go once your near it.
Grab the MISSILE EXPANSION that lies here. Now, head on over to the other  
side of the room via the Morph Ball tunnel, then go right through the Light
door.                                                                      

================================
Forgotten Bridge           
================================
Walk forwards, over the bridge until the Portal is to the left of you. Look
slightly to the right of the nearby waterfall for a platform you can easily
Space Jump to. From here its a short hop to the nearby Portal. Go right    
through it to Dark Aether.                                                 

NOTICE! This platform _WILL NOT_ be here if you haven't lowered the gate   
nearby via the Spinner in this room. If you haven't been following this    
guide correctly, or were reading someone else's guide, then they may not  
have covered the lowering of this gate. If this is the problem, head over 
to Torvus Grove (Not too far away) and go up the Boost Pipe and around the 
room until you reach a Dark door. Head through the next room, then you will 
be in a different area of Forgotten Bridge with a nearby Spinner. This    
Spinner lowers the gate infront of you, creating a platform along with it  
as well.

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

================================
Dark Forgotten Bridge           
================================
Drop off the platform and onto the ground. Quickly go around the room by   
going up a series of ledges on one side of the room, up to the higher area 
of the room with the bridge. Cross the bridge, bust open the Super Missile 
door and go through.                                                       

================================
Brooding Ground           
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Liftvine Crystal

Walk until you get to a big flower on the ground. Scan the crystal on it 
for a new Scan, then shoot it with a Light Beam shot to make it rise. Space
Jump ontop of it, then jump to a higher ledge to a tunnel. Roll through and
out the other side. Quickly make your way out of the room before the Dark 
Preed's 'splode on you.                                                     

================================
Venomous Pond           
================================
Dark Torvus Temple Key:Use Grapple Beam to reach high ledge with the final 
Torvus Key.                                                                

Get into Morph Ball mode and roll through the tunnel on the left. Don't go  
too fast or you'll fly off the ledge once the tunnel ends. Once you get out,
use the Grapple Beam to soar over the gap to collect the final Dark Torvus
Temple Key. Now, we have a few last-minute items to collect before we face 
the boss. Jump down to the bottom of the room and go through the only Dark 
Beam door here.                                                             

================================
Portal Chamber           
================================
Get into Morph Ball mode and roll into the tunnel. Make your way to the other
side of the room, but don't go through the door. Instead look for some     
platforms against the wall (Hard to see because its so dark). Jump over all 
of them to the top of the room, where you will go through another Morph    
Ball tunnel dropping you near the Portal. Activate the Portal then go      
through it.                                                               

================================
Portal Chamber           
================================
Missile Expansion:Must I explain?

Grab the MISSILE EXPANSION laying right infront of you, then go right back 
through the Portal.                                                       

================================
Portal Chamber           
================================
Back in the Dark Aether "Portal Chamber". Use the nearby Piston to rise to  
the top of a Morph Ball tunnel, then drop out near the platforms we used to 
climb in here. Exit out the nearby door.                                  

================================
Poisoned Bog           
================================
Nothing much in this room besides a Hunter Ing. Ignore him and open up the  
Seeker Missile door in this room, and go through it.                      

================================
Cache A           
================================
Beam Ammo Expansion:Right there.

Grab the BEAM AMMO EXPANSION in the middle of the room, then go right back 
out the door.                                                              

================================
Poisoned Bog           
================================
Nothing much else in this room besides the stupid Hunter Ing. Head back to 
Portal Chamber.                                                            

================================
Portal Chamber           
================================
Roll through to the other side.                                           

================================
Venemous Pond           
================================
Head left upon entering the room, and break off a Missile Sheild. Go through
the now open door.                                                         

================================
Save Station 1           
================================
Better save up-the Boss battle is coming up shortly. Save then exit out of
the lone room.                                                             

================================

Go out through the Light door to the right of you.                          

================================
Dark Torvus Temple Access           
================================
Roll through to the other side.                                            

================================
Dark Torvus Temple           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Shredder
Logbook Creatures Scan:Chykka Larva
Logbook Creatures Scan:Chykka
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Chykka
Logbook Creatures Scan:Chyklings

Step into the shining light to place all 3 Keys in their holes. Then, dark 
water will begin to flood the room, causing the platform your on to be    
risen above ground to the actual Temple. A HUGE cocoon lies infront of you.
There are 4 supports keeping it in place. Use a Charge Beam on each one    
of them. When your breaking off the fourth one, make sure your standing in 
the dark waters.                                                           

Now, the cocoon will break off and the Chykka Larva will start attacking.  
Scanning it reveals its weak spot-its stomach. First off, why did we stand 
in the dark water? Try jumping. You have little gravity on you now. This   
glitchy effect will last until either you leave Torvus Bog, or you get hurt,
or you touch the dark waters. Anyways, occasionally when Chykka Larva is   
swimming around some enemies will appear. This is the ONLY place to Scan   
the Dark Shredders, so do it now. Kill the Shredders before they do damage.
Keep an eye on the radar for the Chykka Larva-when it dives down it will 
jump into the air, exposing its stomach for a breif second. Launch a      
Charged Light Beam shot right now. Occasionally, Chykka Larva will land on  
your platform and try to pull you towards it with its tounge. Keep whacking
Light Beam shots into it. Eventually it will leave, breifly exposing his  
stomach. Keep repeating this pattern over and over again until you defeat 
the Larva.                                                                 

However, that was just the beginning. The Chykka rapidly grew, and Chykka   
Adult will begin to fight you. This giant War Wasp-looking boss should be   
Scanned, then attacked on the body by rapid fire Power Beam shots. You need
to hit its body enough to stun it. Chykka Adult will every few seconds    
start spewing dark water at you. Space Jump over that attack. Once the     
Ckykka Adult has been stunned (It'll scream when its stunned, pretty       
obvious), it will turn its back either to the left or the right. If the    
Chykka's back is pointing left, quickly begin charging up the Seeker       
Missiles and using the Grapple Beam to swing over 1 platform to the left.  
If his wings were facing to the right, repeat the same pattern, only with the
right platform. Now, you should be right behind the Chykka Adult's wings.  
Use the Seeker to target all 4 wings and launch Missiles at them. The      
Chykka will scream, snap out of being stunned and return to attacking you. 
Repeat this process once more, and 1/4th of Chykka Adult's will be gone. But,
the Chykka falls right into the water...                                  

Now, the Chykka has become Dark Chykka, infused with gallons of dark water.
Scan it of course, and start using charged Light Beam shots on its bloated
egg sac (Its weak point). Dark Chykka will continue to fly around the Temple,
but hardly does much. Occasionaly, he will launch a huge group of tiny    
Chyklings (Scan these). They will slowly fly towards you. If your low on  
Light Ammo (And you probably are), use a Darkburst on them for a mountain 
of Light Ammo. After a total of 1/2 of Chykka Adult's life bar has been   
drained, Dark Chykka will revert to normal Chykka.                          

3rd stage of the battle. Chykka Adult has some new tricks up his sleeve.   
When the Chykka rears back, quickly Grapple to either platform on the left 
or right. This is his ram attack, which will push you to the Temple's walls,
causing lots of damage in the process (only addded up with the dark water  
damage too). Other than this, nothing else has changed in defeating the    
Chykka Adult.                                                              

Once only 1/4th of Chykka Adult's health remains, he will change to Dark    
Chykka one last time. Dark Chykka can also ram you, and do one other thing.
He can lower the platforms in the arena. This forces you to either swing to
a new platform, or stay hooked to one Grapple Point until they re-appear. 
The platforms shake for about 7 seconds before being submerged. Use the    
same tactic as before to finally kill Chykka.                             

Grab the Dark Visor that is left behind. This visor allows you to see       
invisble things in the Dark and Light worlds, and makes vision in Dark     
Aether much better. Use your new Visor to see the platforms that rise out of
the ground, forming a staircase to the really high door of the Dark      
Torvus Temple.

Mission Difficulty:*****/*****
Mission Objective:Procliamed as the hardest Guardian in the game, we will 
be traveling a HUGE distance to a new land, the Sanctuary Fortress. In my
opinion, one of the best world's in the Metroid Prime series. And I wasn't 
kidding about the long path. You will traveling a huge distance to the    
Spider Guardian, also proclaimed as the...yeah you get it. This is also the
reason I MADE this FAQ. I made a really comprehensive Spider Guardian FAQ  
for GameFAQ's...but it got rejected. To avenge my work, I created this FAQ
which would use my ub3r strategy. And I mean its godly. 35KB big that FAQ 
was. If you can't beat the Spider Guardian after reading my strategy...there
isn't much hope for you.

================================
While you wait for the damn thing to turn around, why not look at some of 
my other FAQ's?                                                            

================================
Dark Torvus Energy Controller           
================================
Rush over to the Energy Controller and have Samus suck up all of the       
Energy. Lovely. Its practically impossible to see 5 feet infront of you now.
Use the Dark Visor from here on until we reach a Portal-It'll help your   
vision. Leave the room.                                                     

================================
Dark Controller Access           
================================
I like pie. Did you know that? Yup...pie is really good for you, despite   
what some doctors think.                                                  

================================
Dark Torvus Temple           
================================
Wow. Look at all the pretty redness. Hehehehe. Jump alllll the way down to
the floor of the Temple and use the elevator in the middle of the room to  
go under the Temple. Break open a Super Missile Shield door nearby and go 
on through.

================================
Energy Tank:Right there infront of you.                                    

Grab the ENERGY TANK that is sitting right infront of you, then leave the  
room.                                                                      

================================
Dark Torvus Temple           
================================
Head straight across the room to the Light door. Shoot the door and go right
on through.                                                                 

================================
Dark Torvus Temple Access          
================================
Get into the Morph Ball and roll right on through this simple and boring   
and short room.                                                            

================================
Venemous Pond           
================================
Jump over to the right, avoiding the Hunter Ing, and go through the door   
once you encounter it.                                                     

================================
Save Station 1           
================================
Save the game after a pretty long Boss Battle. Once your rested up, leave 
the room.                                                                 

================================
Venemous Pond           
================================
Head across the room to another plant with a Liftvine Crystal on it. Shoot 
the crystal with a Light Beam shot to make it rise. Jump onto the plant then
jump onto the ledge with the Light door. Go inside it.                     

================================
Brooding Ground           
================================
Shoot the Liftvine Crystal to create a platform, leading to a tunnel leading
to the door at the other side of the room.                                 

================================
Dark Forgotten Bridge           
================================
Jump off the bridge and to the left. Jump up the platforms to reach the    
Portal. Go through it.

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

================================
Forgotten Bridge           
================================
Phew! Luckily, we won't have to travel back to Dark Aether for a long time,
so take a rest. Jump to the bottom of the room, and follow the ledges      
around the room back up to the bridge. Head across the bridge and through the
door at the end.                                                          

================================
Abandoned Worksite           
================================
Roll into the tunnel to the right, and Bomb Jump through the place. If the 
Sporb pulls you off, kill it to stop its problems as you make it to the    
Light door on the other side of the room.                                 

================================
Great Bridge           
================================
Exit through the blue door on the right side of the room. If Dark Pirate   
Commando's attack you, flip on your Dark Visor. They will never be invisible
to the Visor, allowing you to easily kill them. Entangler shot+Missile     
kills them fast.                                                           

================================
Temple Access           
================================
Get into Morph Ball mode and roll through to the other side, and out the next
door.                                                                      

================================
Torvus Temple           
================================
Head to the elevator on the other side of the room, and ride it to the    
top. Exit out the door there.                                             

================================
Controller Access           
================================
I wonder how Samus deals with the intense boredom that comes out of these  
kinds of rooms...                                                         

================================
Torvus Energy Controller           
================================
Head over to the Controller to insert the Energy into its proper home. All  
of Torvus now is completely sunny, no more rain! Head back to the Controller
Access.                                                                   

================================
Controller Access           
================================
*Starts sleeping*

================================
Torvus Temple           
================================
Jump all the way to the bottom of the room. Actually, how about some fun.  
Get into Morph Ball mode, and get near the ramp where the elevator usually
rides, move onto the ramp and watch Samus zoom down the ramp and fly across
the room. I find it pretty fun. Once your done, exit out through the Dark 
door of the room.                                                         

================================
Temple Access           
================================
Nothing much in this short and thin room. Just run on through, ignoring    
everything else.                                                            

================================
Great Bridge           
================================
Facing across the room from where your standing, jump to the right and go  
straight through the next door.                                            

================================
Path of Roots           
================================
Missile Expansion:Use the Grapple Beam to reach a platform that contains   
this Expansion.                                                            

Logbook Lore Scan:The Ing Attack

First off, look to the right and Scan the Luminoth Projecter for a new Lore 
Scan. Then, use the Grapple Beam to reach the platform in the distance and 
collect your MISSILE EXPANSION. Then jump into the water and head through the
Dark door.                                                                 

================================
Torvus Lagoon           
================================
Missile Expansion:Use the Gravity Boost to reach a ledge underwater with the
Expansion.                                                                 

Jump over the roots to the right and go on the path to the right of the    
ramp leading to the surface of the room. You should see some Venom Weed.   
Hurt them, then use the Gravity Boost to reach a ledge with a MISSILE      
EXPANSION. Then, head up the ramp to the surface (Avoiding the Grenchlers  
along the way), and head to the door on the right.                         

================================
Save Station A           
================================
Haven't Saved in while, so better do so now. Get your Energy back then exit
the room.                                                                  

================================
Torvus Lagoon           
================================
Head through the blue door to the right of the Save Station. We're going back
to the Temple Grounds.                                                    

================================
Temple Transport Access          
================================
Several Shriekbats will attack you as you come in. Kill them off, and proceed
through.                                                                   

================================
Transport to Temple Grounds           
================================
Get on the elevator. We won't be coming back to Torvus Bog for a little   
while...

================================
Torvus Transport Access           
================================
Damned War Wasps...ignore them or kill them for Energy as you go through to 
the next room.                                                            

================================
Path of Eyes           
================================
Remember how a long while ago we shot a statue revealing a Super Missile   
Shield door? Head to the middle of the room, break open that door and go 
right through.                                                           

================================
Windchamber Gateway           
================================
Energy Tank:Use the Grapple Beam on the other side of the room to reach this
faw away Tank.                                                            

Get inside the Kinetic Orb Cannon to the right of you to be blasted to the 
other side of the room. Use the Grapple Beam to swing over to a platform on
the left, which contains another ENERGY TANK. Swing back over, use the Cannon
again, and go back to Path of Eyes.                                        

================================
Path of Eyes           
================================
Go left once you enter the room, and follow the short path and through the 
next door.                                                                

================================
Hall of Eyes           
================================
Nothing much here besides some War Wasps and a useless Portal. Go through 
this room.                                                                 

================================
Meeting Grounds           
================================
Walk around the pathway until you reach the half-pipe. Several Dark Pirate 
Commando's will attack you here. Ignore them and rush over to the door on 
the other side.

Go out the door.

================================
Transport C Access           
================================
Several Harmony Class Drones are doing their crappy work here. Avoid them,
and head to the next door.                                                

================================
Temple Sanctuary           
================================
Finally made it back to the Great Temple, with a couple new pieces of      
equipment to help us out next. Head to the right, and through the next door
you come to.                                                               

================================
Controller Transport           
================================
Step into the elevator, wait half an hour before it reaches the top, then go
out the door there.                                                       

================================
Main Energy Controller           
================================
Talk to U-Mos. He will tell you the Ing ****ing hate you, they despise of 
you, yeah....the Ing pretty much want your ass. However, only one Energy   
Controller remains untouched. We need to rescue the Energy at the Sanctuary
Fortress. Once your done with your talk, get your Energy replenished, head
back out the door.

While we wait for the elevator, why not read more of my amazing FAQ's? Well?
They are realllly good!                                                    

================================
Temple Sanctuary           
================================
Only one more gate remains here. Scan down the Emerald Gate, and proceed   
through the door behind it.                                                

================================
Transport A Access           
================================
Missile Expansion:Below the Save Station (Bomb a block to reach it).        

Keep going, midway into the room. Kill the Lightflyer, then go through the 
tunnel on the right and use the Save Station there. You won't be seeing   
another for a while, so rest up. Bomb a Talloric Alloy block right next to 
the Save Station, revealing a path a few feet below the Station. Grab the 
MISSILE EXPANSION that lies there. Exit out of this room, and to the right
and out the door.

================================
Temple Transport A           
================================
Leave the room.

================================
Sacred Path           
================================
Run across the room to the other side, ignoring the pestering War Wasps that
are present.                                                              

================================
Sacred Bridge           
================================
When you get to the end of the path, don't fall down. Flip on the Dark Visor
to see 4 targets above the gate. Seeker Missile all of these targets, which
will lower a bridge, giving access to the door that was once behind it. Go 
on through.                                                               

================================
GFMC Compound           
================================
Missile Expansion:On the back of the GFS Tyr. Use a Space Jump to reach the 
ship.                                                                     

There are a few Pirate Troopers in this room. I've searched everywhere, and
I haven't found any other place they appear. This is (I believe) the last  
place you will find Pirate Troopers, so Scan them if you haven't Scanned   
them before. Now, from a high ledge near a Yellow Door, Space Jump onto the 
spaceship, and goto the back of it to find a MISSILE EXPANSION just waiting
there for you. Once you have that, lower down the Emerald Gate and go through
the door behind it.                                                        

================================
Fortress Transport Access           
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Luminoth Turret
Logbook Lore Scan:The Sky Temple

As soon as you enter the room, a heavy turret will begin firing at you.    
Scan it if you want, then use 2 Charge Beam shots on it to have it destroyed.
Continue along the path until you reach a beam of light. You can't do      
anything with it now, so ignore it and head right, where you will find     
another turret. Destroy it if you wish, then Scan the nearby Lore, then head
in the door.

it down.

================================
Transport to Temple Grounds           
================================
Nothing much in this room besides some intresting Scans. Read if you wish,
or just leave.                                                             

================================
Temple Transport Access           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Serenity Class Drone

Walk down this hallway. Near the end of it are 2 more Luminoth Turrets.     
Before you take too much damage, quickly take them both out with 2 Charge 
Beam shots. A Super Missile also works too. Scan the Scan Console on the  
left to make the huge ring spin around, opening a path to the next room.    
Before doing so, look the right wall to see a lotta tiny robots moving     
around. Scan these, then kill these harmless creatures for more health.   
Then leave the room.                                                       

================================
Sanctuary Entrance           
================================
Wow. An excellent entrance to an awesome area. This huge bridge marks the  
entrance to the Fortress. Once your midway through the bridge, the doors   
will lock and 6-8 (Not sure on exact count) Pirate Commando's will attack  
you. The Pirates appear all over the room. Some are near the door you just
came from, some are in the middle of the bridge, others are near the door 
you need to exit out of. Use the Entangler (Charged Dark Beam) shot plus 
a Missile to dispose of every Pirate. If a Commando is holding an Orange   
Shield, don't waste your Ammo until he drops it. Your shots mearly reflect
off the sheild. Once you've wasted every Pirate in the room, proceed out the
Light door.                                                                

================================
Power Junction           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Octopede

Several small catapillers block the passage in this room. Shoot them       
several times then back away as they self-destruct. Once everything is dead,
passage is easy to the next room.                                          

================================
Reactor Access           
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Rezbit

Once you enter the room, the doors will lock off and a very odd looking    
enemy will drop from the ceiling. This is a Rezbit. Capable of really strong
attacks. You can easily kill it with an Entangler shot followed by a Missile.
However, if you don't do it fast enough, the Rezbit may have all of its    
squares dissappear and it'll send you a virus. Your Visor is all staticy   
when hit with the Virus, and an assload of weirder text appears. Hold R+L+B
to reboot your Power Suit. After killing the Rezbit, switch to the Dark Visor
and Seeker Missile the four seen targets to lower a platform leading to the
door to the next room.                                                    

================================
Reactor Core           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Quad CM
Logbook Creatures Scan:Quad MB

The doors lock and force fields are placed around the room when you enter. 
Geez....and I thought Fort Knox had damn good security! An odd looking     
mechanoid will attack you now. Scan the body and its head, and prepare for 
and easy fight. Get into Morph Ball mode and wait for the Quad to start   
spinning around the field. Boost Ball into him when he's spinning. This will
cause the Quad to get dizzy revealing a red light under it. Bomb or Boost  
this light and the body will explode. The Control Module (CM) will attack 
you now. When its flashing white, used Charged Dark Beam shots against it. 
When flashing purple, use Charged Light Beam shots against it. When its   
not flashing at all, use Super Missiles. Eventually, it will die. The doors
are unlocked and the force fields gone. Use the path on the right and go  
through the Missile door.                                                 

================================
Save Station A           
================================
About time we reached one! Feel safe in this Station, Save, then leave the 
room.                                                                      

================================
Reactor Core           
================================
Head into the center of the room, and start climbing the platforms along the
room to the top. You'll encounter...5 or 6 Rezbits along the way. Entangler
with a Missile on all of them. Or ignore them and get a virus which is a   
pain in the ass. Your choice. Go through the blue door at the top (Other door
is yellow. Can't use that now.).                                           

================================
Minigyro Chamber           
================================
Scan the Console infront of you, and it tells you a code. Memorize the    
order of colors you Scanned. For those with a weak vocabluary, Colbalt=Blue,
Crimson=Red, Emerald=Green, and....the last color is Orange (Starts with A..
ah well. Darn memory). Head into the Morph Ball tunnel until you reach the 
spinning gyro. Activate the 4 Bomb Slots around it in the colored order    
specified by the Scan Console. The entire gyro will stop, creating a path
to the next room.                                                          

================================
Hall of Combat Mastery           
================================
This is a pretty long hallway, with a Portal at the end of it. There are   
several Quad's in this room, but you can ignore them if you wish. Otherwise
fight them as you work your way around the room. Activate the Portal Machine
and step through...

================================
Culling Chamber           
================================
Logbook Research Scan:Ingworm Cache

Don't worry about being in Dark Aether-we won't be here too long. Scan the  
Ingworm Cache near where you are, then head right and through the nearby  
door.                                                                      

================================
Hazing Cliff           
================================
Missile Expansion:Behind a Dark Diligence Droid at the end of the room.

Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Diligence Droid
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Tallon Metroid

Once you enter the room, use the Entangler shot followed by a Missile to   
kill both of the Dark Tallon Metroids. They will suck away your Energy fast
so be careful! Walk to the end of the room and Scan the Dark Diligence    
Droid here. Use a Charged Light Beam shot to kill him, revealing a MISSILE 
EXPANSION behind it. Backtrack through the short room to Culling Chamber.   

================================
Culling Chamber           
================================
Head forwards, and to the right. Run past the Warrior Ing here. Yes, the   
first Ing Hive key is in that tank. No you can't get it now. Run to the left
and through a Dark door once you reach it.                                 

================================
Central Hive East Transport           
================================
Activate the elevator then ride it up. Its a huge shaft, and a slow elevator.
What a bore...                                                             

================================
Hive Dynamo Works           
================================
There are a ton of Nightbarbs flying around a Grapple Point. Kill every    
single one of them, then Grapple to the other side of the room. Turn around
and flip on the Dark Visor to see 4 Seeker Missile points. Use the Seeker 
Missile on all of them to release a force field around a nearby Portal.    
You know what to do-head to Light Aether.

Dynamo Works           
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:C-Rch's Testament

Before going out the Dark door, head to the other end of the hallway and look
up at the dead Luminoth for a new Scan. Then go back down the room and out  
the Dark door.                                                             

================================
Dynamo Access           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Diligence Class Drone
Logbook Creatures Scan:Mechlops

Once you enter the room, Scan the spinning Diligence Drone for a new Scan.
Use 1 simple Dark Beam shot to kill him, or Morph Ball under it. Then, look
under the glass top and Scan the walking mechanoids. Get into the Morph   
Ball and roll into this glass area. Use a Bomb near the Mechlops' mouths to
have them explode. Proceed through to the other side of the room, and out
the Dark door.                                                              

================================
Main Gyro Chamber           
================================
Turn right once you enter this room. You will see a monster sized gyro     
spinning like crazy. We won't be doing much with it for a little while. Head
to the glass, then get in Morph Ball mode and roll through the tunnel on the
right. When you get out, continue rolling through the next tunnel. You will
appear near a Bomb Slot. Activate the spot to make 3 lines of colors appear
on the glass wall. The trick is to line up each color on the appropriate  
line. Switch the positions by using the 4 dots you can shoot on the glass.
To line them up, hit the top-left button first, then the top-right. Next,
hit the bottom-left, then the bottom-right button. If you didn't screw up,
all the colors will be matched correctly on their lines. This will activate
a second Bomb Slot nearby. Activate this one, and one of the rings on the 
Main Gyro will come to a stop, making a useable platform. Turn to the right,
and go through a Missile Door.                                            

================================
Save Station B           
================================
This is a the last Save Station of the mission, so you sure as hell better 
use it. Exit when done.                                                  

================================
Main Gyro Chamber           
================================
Go back through one tunnel, then Un-Morph. You will be in an opening with 
no glass, so you can jump onto the non-spinning ring. Run around to the  
other side, to an area without any glass. Then roll through another tunnel
to the left. You should be near the same green gate we saw before, an      
unworking elevator, and a Light door. Get inside a nearby Spinner to lower 
the gate, giving easy access to the other side of the room. Scan a nearby  
Scan Console to activate the nearby elevator, and ride it to the top. Head 
straight out the door.                                                    

================================
Temple Access           
================================
Jump down to the lower level and you will be ambushed by another Quad.    
Kill its body like usual, then destroy to Command Module to unlock the doors
and get out of here.                                                       

================================
Sanctuary Temple           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Quad MB
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Quad CM

Jump down and the Ing will possess 2 roaming Quad's in the area, turning 
the CM and MB into Dark Quad's. Scan them both, then run away. There's no  
need to fight them. Run up the platforms quickly, using the Grapple Beam  
when you need to. Once your high enough, the Dark Quad's couldn't care less
about you. Use the Grapple swings in a row to reach a far away door in the 
distance.

Controller Access           
================================
That's. Freaking. It. I'm sick of these stupid and pointless rooms. If I had
a nuke I'd blow up these pointless rooms so we wouldn't have to waste      
precious time on them...                                                  

================================
Sanctuary Energy Controller           
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Agon Falls

Scan the Cobalt Scan thingy to activate a cutscene with another dead Luminoth
and he will tell you about the Sanctuary and why everything is so....awesome
and bad. Yeah. Once you obtain the Cobalt Translator files, exit back to 
Controller Access.

You'll enter Dynamo Works from a different way, and have a Morph Ball     
tunnel infront of you. A small Pillbug appears every few seconds on the glass
to the sides of the tunnel. This is your ONLY chance to Scan the Spider    
Guardian. Yup! This is it. My huge guide is gonna be put to use now. Get 
ready for it...                                                            

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          ~Phase 1-Intro Stage~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the first stage of the Spider Guardian battle. Its a pretty simple 
stage, and should take almost no damage with this one. This stage is        
basically just so you can get used to how the battle works.                

Spider Guardian's Path:There is a small square block in the middle of the  
stage, with a larger square shaped magnetic path going around it. This is the
Spider Guardian's path. He will stay on this path, going clockwise the whole
time. There is also a small path leading to an electrical current...but its
being blocked off. The Bomb Slot will open that path....but how to do so?   

The Bomb Slot:The Bomb Slot is located in the top right corner of the stage.
Its pretty simple to get to. You may encounter difficulty (I know I do)     
performing several Bomb Jumps up to the platforms leading to it, so push    
X to have the camera Zoom In on Samus. Push X again to Zoom Out.           

Changing the Path:You will start off the battle being in the lower left hand
corner. Ouch...pretty far away from our destination, yes? Start off by Bomb
Jumping to the leftern platforms, and heading the direction. When you reach
a series of "Steps" zig-zagging back and forth, quickly Bomb Jump your way 
up them. The Spider Guardian's halo goes through walls, and your close to 
its path and you WILL get hurt. And that's a whopping 30 damage right off 
your energy! Get to the top ASAP, and just wait there until the Spider     
Guardian passes below you (The halo isn't big enough to hit you there). Once
the path is safe, continue making your way to the right now. Don't drop off 
the ledge to the right, unless you want to restart getting back to this    
point. There is a ledge above you. Quickly Bomb Jump up to it. If you are   
having trouble with this Bomb Jump, Zoom the camera in for an easier time.  
Now, roll over to the right some more, and you'll be sitting fine right next
to the Bomb Slot.                                         

That's just the first part-its not active yet of course. Go over to the left,
but not past the ledge and fall to the bottom. Just stay close to the edge 
and wait for the Spider Guardian to come near. Before you get hurt by the 
halo, place a Bomb. It will hopefully explode right next to the Spider     
Guardian. If so, the halo will dissappear for a few seconds, and the Spider
Guardian will be stunned. Before we give it a chance to turn on the halo,   
rush over near it and place 3 bombs. All (should) explode on the Spider    
Guardian, and this will instantly turn the Bomb Slot active now. If all 3   
don't hit, the Spider Guardian will turn its halo Red (from its orginal    
Blue) and move faster along the magnetic tracks. It will be Green when the  
Bomb Slot is active, and that's your cue.                        

Now for the final part of the Phase. Your conviently right near the Bomb 
Slot, so Boost over to it and Bomb Jump into it and place a Bomb. This will
open up the cover leading to the electrical current, and will anger the   
Spider Guardian. Its halo will instantly turn Red, and will rush along the 
tracks towards its doom. Sadly, this only chips off 1/6th of its health,  
so we have 5 more to go!

***PHASE 1 COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                         ~Phase 2-Boosting Into Pain~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Right after defeating Phase 1, don't give yourself praise. There's much    
more to go. Follow the Spider Guardian into the next area, where a new track
awaits. This time, much more complex. Oh boy....

Overview of Phase:The first thing you may notice is how the bottom is a half-
pipe. You'll be using the Boost Ball a lot to get on desired platforms to 
bomb the Spider Guardian a lot. Make sure to not Boost INTO him, because   
we don't want to take too much damage.

Spider Guardian's Path:Thing of 2 S's, and put them together. Bingo, that is
pretty much the Spider Guardian's pathway. That path is in the middle of the
level, however. Not to worry, as we won't be venturing anywhere near there 
until the Bomb Slot is active. The only way you can actually get hurt by   
the Boost Guardian while the Bomb Slot is inactive is when its on the left 
or right sides of its track. Note:The track isn't a circle, so the Spider   
Guardian will continually be going back and forth and back....so don't     
panic at all.                                   

The Bomb Slot:Its pretty easily notciable, its right near the middle of the
area. Unfortuantely, its impossible to reach. The reason? There's no platform
beneath it. It has already retracted into the wall. So how do you get      
yourself into the Bomb Slot? Its only important when its active remember...
Anyways, the platform will come out of the wall when the Bomb Slot is     
active, and will retract back inside once the Bomb Slot has deactivated. So
make the Guardian green!

Changing the Path:The instant this phase begins you will fall down to the  
bottom of the half-pipe. Wuh? Half-pipe? Isn't it obvious what to do now?  
Maybe not. Well, you have 2 positions to situate yourself on to start Bombing
the Spider Guardian. Either you can Boost up and stay on the right side of
the field, or Boost to the left side of the field. Sadly, its very difficult
to hit the Spider Guardian and not get hurt on the left side of the field,
so start Boosting on the half-pipe until you reach the right side. If you 
land on the left side, fall back down and continuetrying to go to the right
side. Of course, getting there isn't quite the easiest of things to do    
without taking a few scratches of damage. The Spider Guardian's zig-zig path
across the middle of the field and touching the left and right sides is a  
pain in ass to deal with. Try to get the timing down correctly, and you  
should pass him with ease. If you don't have a ton of health to spare, then
stop Boosting if the Spider Guardian comes near you. Trust me-you'll be   
needing all of the health you can have for the final stage. You may be    
thinking "Why not go to the Bomb Slot"? Simple really if you read the above:
there's no platform below it. So just ignore the inactive Bomb slot for the
time being.                                                               

That's just step 1....activating the Bomb Slot is much much harder than it
was before. Simply wait on the right side for the Spider Guardian to come 
close. Don't be next to the electrical current because the ledge isn't close
to it and you won't be able to pull this off. There's a magnetic path leading
upwards to where you are situated. Before the Spider Guardian reaches that
section (I mean RIGHT before), drop off and lay 3 Bombs. Odds are one of them
will hit the Spider Guardian, and he will be stunned. Use this "he has no  
halo" time to quickly Boost all the way back to your previous location. If 
the Spider Guardian starts moving again with his halo before you get up, be
very careful! You don't want to take a lot of damage. Its much harder getting
back up there as he is moving much faster as of his previous Bombing. Once
you have gotten back to the right side again, repeat the previous process. 
Right before the vertical magnetic path leading to you, drop off and lay   
three Bombs. Just repeat this 2 more times until finally at long last, the  
Bomb Slot is active.                                        

Time for the final step-getting our asses to the Bomb Slot. Its gonna be a 
rush, so don't be afraid to take an Energy Tank or two of damage. After   
Bombing the Spider Guardian the final time, thus turning his halo Green, the
Bomb Slot will finally be active. You will also here a clanking type noise. 
That's a good thing-it just so happens that's the noise of the platform    
being unleashed under the Bomb Slot. Now we can activate it! Move quickly-
we have less than 30 seconds. You should now be at the bottom of the half- 
pipe once again. Start Boosting up the LEFT side this time around. If you hit
the Spider Guardian, that's ok, its no big deal because we will be able to 
heal ourselves eventually. Once you have made it all the way to the left    
side, quickly drop over to the right, onto the platform below the Bomb Slot.
If you did this all quickly, the Spider Guardian will happen to be right at
that point. If you hit him, odds are you will be pushed away, possible back
to the bottom of the half-pipe, and the timer will probably expire. Avoid  
this consequence by Bombing the Spider Guardian, which will easily reset the
30 second timer. Once you are on the platform, move an inch or so to the  
right and Bomb Jump into the Bomb Slot, and place the final Bomb. This will
(finally) move the platform leading to the electrical current, and the Spider
Guardian will get ticked off and move fast...right towards its fate.       
Awright! 2/6ths of his health gone!                                

***PHASE 2 COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 ~Phase 3-That Pillbug Takes No Prisioners...~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
After completing Phase 2, Boost up the half-pipe to the right side again,  
and go through the opening where the electrical current once was, and you 
will enter Phase 3. DAMN! Looks confusing right? To make matters worse, there
is ANOTHER half-pipe at the bottom. Odds are you will take somewhere between
2-4 Energy Tanks of damage in this Phase. Try to be careful-remember you have
as much time as you need, so don't rush this!

Overview of Phase:Lovely. Its pretty difficult. There's a half-pipe at the  
bottom of the phase, however, Boosting up the right side is impossible as  
there's nowhere to go once there. So....obviously the only way to Boost is 
up the left side. Like before, there is no platform below the Bomb Slot, so
your gonna have to sit patiently elsewhere and Bomb the Spider Guardian. This
phase plays much like the 2nd Phase.                                    

Spider Guardian's Path:Not much of a complex path. You probably won't get   
hurt too much in this phase. He starts kinda near the bottom left corner, 
then head towards the middle of the stage, up a little, then to the left, 
further northwards, then goes to the right towards the end of the track, 
where the Spider Guardian will go back down its path again. The end of the 
path is blocked by another wall, which leads to yet another electrical    
current.                                                         

The Bomb Slot:The Bomb Slot, as with the previous Phase, is situated in the
center of the arena. Once again, there is a platform below it, however it 
has already retracted into the wall. As with before, activating the Bomb  
Slot by Bomb the Spider Guardian four times will make the platform appear, so
you will be able to reach it. Once the Bomb Slot is active, Boost up the   
left side of the arena, then fall off the right edge and you will land right
on the platform, several steps away from the Bomb Slot, where an easy Bomb
Jump awaits.                      

Changing the Path:Its actually much simplier than before this time around. 
Getting to our desired detination is a sinch, and odds are you won't get  
hurt (I don't think its POSSIBLE to get hurt in this part of the battle).  
Start off by Boosting. Boost boost boost we go....and we are trying to get 
on top of the left side of the stage. Odds are you will be venturing near the
top right corner of the half-pipe. Sadly, there is a wall there preventing  
you from reaching the top platform. To make matters worse, the Spider      
Guardian's path crosses over that very area, so you might accidentally Boost
into him and take some damage. Try...to avfoid doing that mmkay? Once you 
have successfully made it to the top-right side of the phase, position    
yourself near the top left ledge. Slowly make your way to the right and as 
close to the next ledge as possible. This is the prime position for Bombing 
the Spider Guardian.                                                    

Part 1 is gonna be repeated several times to make the Bomb Slot active, so 
have some patience. Anyways, wait for the Spider Guardian to come close to 
under your platform. When he draws close, fall off to the right, laying   
all 3 Bombs in your wake. Hopefully, at least 1 will hit him, and that'll  
change his halo color to Red as usual. He will rampage along the tracks going
faster just like in the previous stages. After you Bombs, you'll be back at
the bottom again, in the half-pipe. You don't have much of choice now...your
gonna have to repeat the first step in getting back to the top right     
corner of the arena. Its simple though-just make sure you avoid the right  
side of the half-pipe when Boosting. The Spider Guardian ventures over there
all of the time...and getting hurt isn't the most pleasent of experiences 
this late in the game. Get back to the top, then beginning of part 2, that
being wait for him to come near you, then drop off, lying all of your Bombs 
in your fall. Do this two mre times, and finally the Bomb Slot will be    
active. As well with it, the platform beneth it will come forth, allowing 
access.                                                            

Well, the Bomb Slot, after Bombing the Spider Guardian 4 times has finally
been activated. You have very limited time, as you always do. You will be  
very rished during this part of the phase. You need to quickly Boost up to
the left side of the arena, like we have many times before. Quickly start  
Boosting up and down the half-pipe until you have finally reached the top 
right corner platform. Once there, ignore the Spider Guardian. Taking damage
right now can be dealt with, and its critically important that you reach that
Bomb Slot before time expires...unless you want to redo part 2 all over again
(think of that torture it already made you suffer!!!). Once you are on the 
top right platform, roll over quickly to the left to fall down near the    
bottom of the level, but you should land on the platform right below the   
Bomb Slot. Isn't it obvious what you need to do now? Well...if it isn't....
meh. I don't need to explain. Just Bomb Jump into the Bomb Slot and activate
it. The path will open up, leading to the electrical current. The Spider  
Guardian will get ticked off, and start rampaging quickly, and as like before
will soon meet its inevitable fate.                              

Awright! Half its health gone. Now to the final stage!

***PHASE 3 COMPLETE!***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    ~Final Phase-Triple Tramutic Trouble~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
You finally completed Phase 3. Nice...but we still have one more Phase left.
Boost up the right side of the half-pipe, and through the openway where the
electrical current once was. Keep goig on the lower path, and you will soon 
meet 3 boxes. All three contain a Blue Energy, which refills 50 Energy each,
for a total of 150 Energy refill. Trust me, your gonna be needing all the 
energy you can get your hands on for the final phase, Drop down to the right
to enter the Final Phase!

Overview of Phase:Oh...my....god... This is one huge mess. Its a gigantic
maze of Bomb Slots, magnetic pathways, and electrical currents. What a mess!
There's only one way to do this all. There is almost no cover from the Spider
Guardian. If you need to avoid him, you'll have to Bomb Jump up two levels,
but by then you will have already gotten hurt. Your gonna have to lie an   
offensive with this bad phase. Luckily though, there's no more Boosting. Just
a ton of well placed and timed Bomb Jumps.                                

Spider Guardian's Path:It looks really complex and intimidating doesn't   
it? Well....your only dealing with a small portion. The rest of the track 
is only used when you've activated the Bomb Slots...and even then you'll be 
beggin to stay out of the Spider Guardian's way. Anyways, the path of the 
Spider Guardian is simple. It moves back and forth on the bottom row of   
magnetic track. That's it. It'll venture everywhere else when you change the
path. 

The Bomb Slots:There are three (yes, three) Bomb Slots in this phase. It'll
be a mad dash to activate them once they are active an online. At first, 
you will only have to Bomb the Bomb Slot closest to the bottom level, the 
one you can simply roll into, no Bomb Jump required. That'll change the path,
and send the Spider Guardian into an electrical current. After the next four
Bombings, you'll have to Bomb that Bomb Slot, and the one second highest to
the bottom. After another four Bombings on the Spider Guardian, its the whole
finale, in getting to all three Bomb Slots before that short 30 second timer
expires!

Changing the First Path:Yes, there are three paths. I'll post all three paths
here, although its really just a Copy+Paste for the first two sections. This
is A complete FAQ, so no "Look at previous steps". Anyways, we first off want
to change the Spider Guardian's color to Green. This is, in a crazy way, the
EASIEST stage to do that. Isn't that funny. Just choose a spot anywhere on 
the bottom level, and just wait there until the Spider Guardian comes near.
Place a Bomb, maybe another to ensure the Spider Guardian gets hit. Once the
halo has dissappeared, we need to pull off the same trick we used in Phase 
1:That being, the Triple Bomb Slot Activate. Its a misleading title....but
quickly place 3 Bombs right inside the Spider Guardian. All will explode, and
the first Bomb Slot will finally be active.                            

Now, comes the harder part of the Final Phase:Getting to the Bomb Slot.    
Unlike all the other Phases, you need to time the activation of the Bomb Slot
otherwise the Spider Guardian won't goto the electrical current. Ouch.     
Once the Bomb Slot has been activated, quickly head to the left, the very far
left side, and Bomb Jump up to the tiny ledge. The Bomb Slot happens to be 
right here. How nice! Wait for the Spider Guardian to be on the LEFT side  
of the arena, then activate the Bomb Slot. This will lower the bridge down, 
switching the path. If the Spider Guardian was on the right side, he would 
be trapped from the lowering of the bridge, and the Spider Guardian would  
push the bridge back to its orginal spot, then turn Blue again. Don't do   
that! After activating the Bomb Slot, stay in the bottom left corner of the 
field until the Spider Guardian gets close to the electrical current, then
Boost over to the right side. After plowing into the current, Spidey is only
at 2/6ths health to go!                                             

Changing the Second Path:As with the First Path, we need to start off by   
making that crapheaded Spider Guardian Green once more. And you need to do 
it with utmost haste-your more than likely running low on energy at this   
point. Are you ready for the same explination? Anyways, we first off want
to change the Spider Guardian's color to Green. This is, in a crazy way, the
EASIEST stage to do that. Isn't that funny. Just choose a spot anywhere on 
the bottom level, and just wait there until the Spider Guardian comes near.
Place a Bomb, maybe another to ensure the Spider Guardian gets hit. Once the
halo has dissappeared, we need to pull off the same trick we used in Phase 
1:That being, the Triple Bomb Slot Activate. Its a misleading title....but
quickly place 3 Bombs right inside the Spider Guardian. All will explode, and
the first two Bomb Slot will finally be active.    

Now, after changing the Spider Guardian's color to Green, 2 Bomb Slots will
become active. Yes, you have to get to both Bomb Slots and activate them  
within the 30 second time frame. There isn't any time to waste around. You 
need to repeat the exact same first step as before:Getting the first Bomb 
Slot. You need to activate it in the exact same fashion to. Here it is:
Once the Bomb Slot has been activated, quickly head to the left, the very far
left side, and Bomb Jump up to the tiny ledge. The Bomb Slot happens to be 
right here. How nice! Wait for the Spider Guardian to be on the LEFT side  
of the arena, then activate the Bomb Slot. This will lower the bridge down, 
switching the path. If the Spider Guardian was on the right side, he would 
be trapped from the lowering of the bridge, and the Spider Guardian would  
push the bridge back to its orginal spot, then turn Blue again. Don't do   
that! Once this Bomb Slot has been activated, and the bridge has been      
lowered, quickly Boost over to the right, and fall down the bigger gap. Wait
for the Spider Guardian to get close to you, then Bomb him once. This will 
reset the 30 second timer, so there is more than enough time to reach the  
remaining Bomb Slot. Now, Bomb Jump back up the previous fallen-through gap,
but Jump to the right, and follow the ledge, then Bomb Jump to the right   
again to the next level. The Bomb Slot is here at the top of a slightly    
slanted hill. No biggie. Just Bomb Jump into the Bomb Slot and then Bomb  
it (Bomb this...Bomb that...lol). The second bridge will be lowered, and the
path will be changed for good, and the Spider Guardian will get pissed off 
as usual. Hide in the bottom left corner if you can. Its VERY likely you'll
hit the Spider Guardian, so don't worry. Wait for him to ram into the      
electrical current, then all the bridges will return to their default     
positions. Spider Guardian is down to 1/6ths of his life, and its time for 
the toughest part!                                                     

Changing the Final Path:This is it, were down to the final electrical circuit
and the Spider Guardian will finally bite the dust. We need to repeat the 
first step like we alays do, then activate (prepare yourself) 3 Bomb Slots.
All three. Trouble will arise...your gonna have to be good with the Morph 
Ball for this one...so get ready! Let's do this! Anyways, we first off want
to change the Spider Guardian's color to Green. This is, in a crazy way, the
EASIEST stage to do that. Isn't that funny. Just choose a spot anywhere on 
the bottom level, and just wait there until the Spider Guardian comes near.
Place a Bomb, maybe another to ensure the Spider Guardian gets hit. Once the
halo has dissappeared, we need to pull off the same trick we used in Phase 
1:That being, the Triple Bomb Slot Activate. Its a misleading title....but
quickly place 3 Bombs right inside the Spider Guardian. All will explode, and
the three Bomb Slots will finally be active. 

This. Is. It. The very final moments of this intense battle. 30 seconds. 3,
yes, 3 Bomb Slots. Oh, 30 Seconds. Did I mention 30 *gets shot*. Ahem. The
first 2 Bomb Slot tips remain the same, but the final one is a bit        
complicated, so bear with me. Its intense, but don't panic, and above all:
stay calm. You need to activate it in the exact same fashion to. Here it is:
Once the Bomb Slot has been activated, quickly head to the left, the very far
left side, and Bomb Jump up to the tiny ledge. The Bomb Slot happens to be 
right here. How nice! Wait for the Spider Guardian to be on the LEFT side  
of the arena, then activate the Bomb Slot. This will lower the bridge down, 
switching the path. If the Spider Guardian was on the right side, he would 
be trapped from the lowering of the bridge, and the Spider Guardian would  
push the bridge back to its orginal spot, then turn Blue again. Don't do   
that! Once this Bomb Slot has been activated, and the bridge has been      
lowered, quickly Boost over to the right, and fall down the bigger gap. Wait
for the Spider Guardian to get close to you, then Bomb him once. This will 
reset the 30 second timer, so there is more than enough time to reach the  
remaining Bomb Slot. Now, Bomb Jump back up the previous fallen-through gap,
but Jump to the right, and follow the ledge, then Bomb Jump to the right   
again to the next level. The Bomb Slot is here at the top of a slightly    
slanted hill. No biggie. Just Bomb Jump into the Bomb Slot and then Bomb  
it (Bomb this...Bomb that...lol). That will lower the second of the three 
bridges.

The Final Bridge:And now the finale of finales. After activating the second 
Bomb Slot, rush to the bottom and Bomb the Spider Guardian again IF and only
if you wasted a lot of time getting to the second Bomb Slot. If you Bombed 
the second Bomb Slot with good haste, ignore going to Bomb the Spider      
Guardian again. Head over to the left of the second Bomb Slot, and Bomb Jump
onto the small ledge. Its a hard Bomb Jump, and its advised you Zoom in the
camera for a better angle. Once there, head to the left and you will be at 
...BUMBUMBUMMMMM the last Bomb Slot! Unfortunately...its at the very crest
of a hill, and up a tiny vertical shaft the Morph Ball can barely fit     
through. What does this mean exactly? Your gonna have to stand (Or roll...)
to the very top of the hill, and perform a Bomb Jump, all the while, keeping
your balance to not roll down this hill, screwing up the Bomb Jump. If you 
feel pressure, feel free to Bomb the Spider Guardian again for more time.  
This is the final Bomb Slot...so stay cool above all other things. Once you 
have tackled the very final Bomb Slot in your way, and have some Energy to
spare, sit near the electrical current and watch the fireworks as the Spider
Guardian explodes, and the Spider Ball appears at the end of a corridor.  
Go ahead and grab your well deserved prize after a fight like this!

You have earned the Spider Ball ability after all this hell...use the Spider
Ball to go back to the third room. Head up, and you should be able to see  
a path you can Bomb Jump into. Do so and follow the path to a MISSILE     
EXPANSION. Keep going a little more and you'll be dropped right back out into
the main area of Dynamo Works. Head up the Spider Ball track in the back of
this room and out the blue door.

       ~Mission 16:Nuclear Explosives=PWNage-Obtaining the Power Bombs~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:**/*****
Mission Objective:We have to backtrack a little bit back to Torvus Bog, and
access the very bottom of its Dark Aether counterpart to fid the Power Bomb
Guardian. Despite your thoughts, he's really easy. I mean REALLY easy. Simple
mission.                                                                   

================================
Central Area Transport East           
================================
Scan the Console to activate the elevator down the huge shaft. Its fun to  
Space Jump on the elevator-you will fall down a looong ways cause it is so  
fast. Exit out the next door.                                              

================================
Hall of Combat Mastery           
================================
Missile Expansion:Go through the very complicated Spider Ball maze to reach
this.                                                                      

Logbook Lore Scan:The Final Crusade

Scan the nearby Lore to the right, and the Spider Ball track if you haven't 
done so yet. Then, cross over the Spider Ball track to the other side. You 
should be near another Spider Ball track. Go up it into a large maze. You  
need to be able to pull off a ton of Bomb Jups-well timed ones too. When you
reach the area with a lot of Phazon, the tiny platform moving over you has 
a nearly impossible to see Spider Ball track on it. Use that for assistance.
When you reach the end, Bomb Jump up to a MISSILE EXPANSION, then head right
more to exit the maze (Don't accidentally exit without the Expansion or you
have to do it all over again!). Now, head for the other end of the room, to 
the only other door.                                                       

================================
Minigyro Chamber           
================================
Roll through to the other side.                                           

================================
Reactor Core           
================================
Energy Tank:Go through the huge Spider Ball track.                         

Use an Entangler shot followed by a Missile to eliminate every single Rezbit
in this room. You definately want them gone because they are a real pain.  
Now, once they are dead, jump to the bottom of the Reactor and find a Kinetic
Orb Cannon and use it. Hold R to attach to a Morph Ball surface. Get on the
next Spider Ball track and ride to the next ball. Get on the Red Dot on this
ball and Boost on the dot. You will be propelled to the next ball. Get on the
Red Dot and you should have the camera angle turned to the next ball. Wait 
until its done being electrifed and then Boost over. Every other ball is   
electrified. Be careful-hitting the electricity causes you to fall off. Once
you have Boosted back to an actual Spider Ball Track, simply follow it around
and Boost when neccessary. Eventually you will drop right into an alcove with
an ENERGY TANK. Now drop to the bottom, and head for the nearest blue door.
Take a right, and follow it to a Cobalt gate. Scan down the gate and proceed
through the door.                                                         

================================
Sanctuary Map Station           
================================
Head won either the left or right ramps and download the Map. Quite a big 
place, hmm? Exit the room.                                                 

================================
Reactor Core           
================================
Head forwards until you see a blue door on the right. Take it. We don't need
a Save Station now.                                                        

================================
Reactor Access

================================
Power Junction           
================================
Oooh! What is with all the blue sparklies, hmm? Proceed through this room..
with deep and utter silence...                                             

================================
Sanctuary Entrance           
================================
As soon as you enter the room, Dark Samus will drop down onto the bridge.
No don't des-, too late. She blows up the entire bridge. Now how are we    
supposed to get across? Never fear! There "happens" to be a Spider Ball   
track just to the left of where you are standing. Use the track to cross 
what was the bridge. You will need to use the Boost Ball a lot during this 
time, to get use to using it. For some jumps, Bomb Jumping on the Spider Ball
Track is also useful. Get some practice in before you leave the room on the
other side.                                                                

================================
Temple Transport Access           
================================
Oddly enough, the Luminoth Turret's don't fire at you when your leaving. Go

================================
GFMC Compound

================================

Head up the elevator.

================================
Temple Transport A

We're not going to be in the Great Temple for long, so it doesn't need its

================================
Meeting Grounds           
================================
Get into the Morph Ball and Boost through this room to the next door down
the hall. We have no intention on fighting these Pirates, as they cause much
pain anyways >_>

================================
Temple Transport Access           
================================
Once you step forwards into the room, several Shreikbats will attack you.   
Kill them and move through.                                                

================================
Torvus Lagoon

================================
Save the game and exit the room.                                            

================================
Torvus Lagoon            
================================
From hwere your standing on the ledge, you can easily Space Jump over to the
bridge with a Light door and a blue door. Do so, and once there go through 
the blue door.                                                             

================================
Portal Chamber

Expansion here, remember?

================================
Great Bridge

through and out the next door.                                             

================================
Underground Transport           
================================
Yeah...the stupid elevator doesn't enjoy moving fast enough. Get out the  
next door at the bottom.                                                  

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Quickly jump up both sets of platforms, then perform a Space Jump to the top
door of the room.                                                          

================================

================================
Last place to Save before you face the next boss. Do so, get back your Energy
then leave.                                                                

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Jump allllll the way down to the very bottom of this room, and out the     
nearby door.                                                                

================================
Hydrodynamo Shaft           
================================
Head down the large group of stairs. Refill your Missiles if you want from 
the enemies. Of course, you won't be needing Missiles for the boss so just 
head through the next door.                                                

================================
Main Hydrochamber           
================================
Head down and straight across this room. You will find a Portal stuck high on
a ledge, and a convienent Spider Ball Track nearby. Go up the track and    
through the Portal.                                                        

================================
Undertemple           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Power Bomb Guardian

Walk off the ledge, and the battle will begin. This giant Sporb, the Power 
Bomb Guardian will throw the nuclear explosives at you during the battle.   
Luckily, they only to 10 damage (Compared to the real deal dealing out over
750). Look around the room for a Spider Ball Track and start running up it.
The trick here is to reach 4 Bomb Slots and activate them all. Each one chips
off 1/4th of his health bar. Each slot you hit makes the Guardian spew the 
Bombs faster and more accurately, as well as having more and more Inglets  
trying to hinder your progress. Because this battle is so simple, not to   
mention practically impossible to explain, I won't go into gory detail about
the battle.                                                                

However, to make your life easier, activate the 2 Bomb Slots furthest from 
the inital entrance to the stage first so you won't have to go there later.
This makes getting the last 2 really close to the entrance a snap.         
Remember that you need to Bomb Jump up on the Spider Ball Track. Don't be 
like me the first time doing this and think the only way to activate the    
Slots was to Boost up to them (lol).                                       

Once you have killed the Power Bomb Guardian (By releasing all 4 Slots and 
dropping the ceiling on his head), he will leave the Power Bomb upgrade
behind. Use the Spider Ball Track one last time to reach the top of the room
and grap the Power Bombs. Push Y in Morph Ball mode to use this nuclear    
explosive. Use the new item to open the nearby Yellow door, and to exit the
room.

           ~Mission 17:Its a Bright Flash....-Getting the Sunburst~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:**/*****
Mission Objective:We will be going out of our way for this Mission to pick up
another Charge Combo, this time for the Light Beam. Its the Sunburst, a very
slow and big ball of light that murders anything in Dark Aether. Stationary
targets though. This thing can't hit crap that moves. Meh...really for 100%
Items purposes. If you don't want this at all, skip to Mission 18.

================================
Undertemple Access         
================================
Now that we are armed with a weapon of mass destruction, let's test it out
to earn several upgrades and Expansions. From the bottom of the room simply 
head up the winding staircase to the top. There are a ton of Darkling      
Tentacles along the way. Shoot them to pass.                                

================================
Undertemple Shaft           
================================
Nothing much in this room. Look to the left and use the Grapple Beam to swing
across to a Light door. Go through it.                                      

================================
Crypt Tunnel           
================================
More Darkling Tentacles inhabit this lonely tunnel. Shoot them or roll under
them and go through the next door.                                          

================================
Crypt           
================================
Jump right down onto the floor and quickly turn around to find the Light    
Portal. Hit it with the Light Beam and jump through it before the Dark      
Grenchlers reach you.

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

================================
Gathering Hall           
================================
Missile Expansion:Use the Power Bombs to reveal a half-pipe in the room.   
Using it, cling to 2 Spider Ball Tracks and activate 2 Bomb Slots which will
reveal the Expansion.                                                       

From the Portal, jump into the water infront of you and get into Morph Ball 
mode at the bottom. Look for the cracked plug there. Use a Power Bomb on it,
which will drain all of the water in the room, which reveals a half-pipe in
its place. Using the half-pipe, use the Boost Ball to cling to a Spider Ball
Track pretty high on the ceiling. Once there, follow it around until you   
reach a moving block. Boost onto it, then when it turns around, Boost into 
the Bomb Slot. Activate it and do the exact same process with the Bomb Slot
on the other side of the room. (Say you Boosted all the way up the left side
of the half-pipe and got the Slot. Repeat the process with the right side).
This de-activates a force field around a nearby Missile Expansion. Climb   
several platforms and use the Grapple Beam to reach this MISSILE EXPANSION.
Use the Kinetic Orb Cannon that lies right infront of you to be shot to a   
Light door. Go through it.                                                  

================================
Gathering Access           
================================
Several Preed's inhabit this room, incase you somehow forgot. Kill them from
a distance, then charge through.                                           

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Use the Gravity Boost to make your way out of the water, then climb the    
moving platforms and out the top door.                                     

================================
Save Station B           
================================
Save the game. We've done a lot so far, but there is still...much left. No  
matter. Leave the room.                                                     

================================
Hydrodynamo Station           
================================
Jump over to the central tower of the room, then jump over to the door on the
below ledge. Let's get out of lower-Torvus.                                

================================
Underground Transport           
================================
Step in the hologram to activate the elevator. Go out the door once you reach
the very top.                                                              

================================
Torvus Temple           
================================
Go straight ahead, and go around the pillar (which is the elevator) and     
through the door ahead.                                                     

================================
Temple Access           
================================
Get into Morph Ball mode and roll through this short tunnel, Bomb Jumping  
when you need to.                                                          

================================
Great Bridge           
================================
Head to the left side of the room and go out the blue door there. If Dark  
Pirate Commando's attack you here because your unlucky, you should know how 
to kill them by now (Charged Dark Beam shot followed by a Missile with the
Dark Visor on).                                                            

================================
Portal Chamber           
================================
Get into Morph Ball mode again and roll through this short tunnel to the   
other side of the room and out the door.                                   

================================
Torvus Lagoon           
================================
Space Jump over to the ledge on the right side of the room, and go through 
the nearby door there.                                                      

================================
Save Station A           
================================
This is your last chance to save the game for this Mission, so just make sure
you do it now just incase.                                                  

================================
Torvus Lagoon           
================================
From the ledge you are on, jump to the right and go out the door there,    
avoiding the Grenchlers.                                                   

================================
Temple Transport Access           
================================
Kill the three Shriekbats in this room before you go through to the other  
side to avoid damage.                                                      

================================
Transport to Temple Grounds           
================================
Step into the elevator.                                                    

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

|                                                                          |

|                                                                          |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

================================
Transport to Torvus Bog           
================================
Head out the door.                                                         

================================
Torvus Transport Access           
================================
Head through to the other side of the room quickly because there are a ton 
of War Wasps...trying to kill you.                                          

================================
Path of Eyes           
================================
Don't use the tunnel shortcut this time around through the room. Continue  
through until you see a door on the left, which is about halfway through the
room. Enter it.                                                             

================================
Windchamber Gateway           
================================
Use the Kinetic Orb Cannon to be blasted to the other side of the room. If
you haven't gotten it already, use the Grapple Beam to the left to get an 
Energy Tank. Head out the door when ready.                                 


================================
Grand Windchamber           
================================
There are a few Pirate Aerotroopers swarming around the room and readily    
attacking you. Ignore them and follow the path to the right to find a Portal.
Activate it, then go through.                                              

================================
Ing Windchamber            
================================
You should appear right next to a Spinner. Get in it and keep Boosting until
one of the rings your are spinning on the main central platform turns yellow.
Once it is yellow, get in the Kinetic Orb Cannon and get into the next    
Spinnder that lies there. Boost in there to make a second ring turn yellow. 
Get in the nearby Kinetic Orb Cannon and repeat the process with the Spinner
there to make a third ring yellow. Use the Cannon again and do this for the
final Spinner. All 4 rings are now yellow. Use the Seeker Missile on all 4
spots and 2 platforms will lower here and on Light Aether. Now, repeat this
exact same process again, but this time around make all of the rings turn 
blue instead. Once done using the Seeker Missiles one more time, 4 platforms
will be lowered here and on Light Aether. Once your done head back through 
the Light Portal.                                                          

================================
Grand Windchamber           
================================
Lowering the 4 platforms has activated Grapple Points on all of them, making
access easy around the room. Use the Grapple Beam to swing to the left     
platform with a Kinetic Orb Cannon. Get in it to be blasted to the central 
tower, where the Sunburst awaits. Excellant. 2 Pirate Aerotroopers will   
attack you here. Go ahead and test your new toy if you want. Now, exit out 
of the only other door you haven't been through yet.

Mission Difficulty:****/*****
Mission Objective:We need to return to Sanctuary Fortress right now and climb
up higher into the massive building. Only there will you find a slew of    
puzzles and meet up with Dark Samus again...                               

================================
Windchamber Tunnel           
================================
Get into Morph Ball mode and roll through this short tunnel. Use a Power Bomb
on the door at the end to open it.                                         

================================
GFMC Compound           
================================
Nothing in this room but swarming War Wasps. Jump off the ledge you are on to
the left and go through the door there.                                    

================================
Fortress Transport Access           
================================
There are several Luminoth Turrets in this passageway. Destroy them from a  
distance because their shots are very powerful as I'm sure you already know.
Work yout way through the room, dodging blasts or killing turrets and go out
the door at the end.                                                        

================================
Transport to Sanctuary Fortress

================================
Transport to Temple Grounds           
================================
Head out the door infront of you.                                          

================================
Temple Transport Access           
================================
There are 2 Luminoth Turrets you'll find before heading under the first arch.
Stay far away and shoot them both with 2 Charge Beam shots to destroy each  
of them. Once the coast is clear, continue throuogh the room. Destroy the   
little red robots if you want.                                              

================================
Sanctuary Entrance           
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:S-Jrs's Testament
Logbook Lore Scan:Twilight

Power Bomb Expansion:Look below.

The bridge is still destroyed and will never be repaired. I'm sure you     
remember easily how to get back over to the other side. If you forgot, turn
around and use the Spider Ball Tracks to reach the other side (Boosting from
one side to another when you need to). Once your on the other side, look to
the left for some cracked glass. Go up over to it and place a Power Bomb to
break the glass. Ride the elevator in here to the top, then Scan the Scan 
Console that rests up here.                                                

Scanning that reveals a Kinetic Orb Cannon nearby. Head back down the      
elevator and get into the Cannon. Follow the Spider Ball Tracks up to the   
center platform. A Turret is here for you to use, and you need to use it to 
obtain more Power Bombs so get inside it. Now, look a little to the left.  
Kinda high on a ledge is a giant cracked wall. Blast it to break it. A little
more to the right is another cracked area. Blast that as well. Now, look   
above the door on the right side of the room for a third cracked area.     
Blast it to pieces as well.                                                

Blasting all of these pieces makes a pathway to the Expansion. Get back on 
solid ground again via the nearby Kinetic Orb Cannon. Once there, head to 
the Light door, but keep going right. You should go around a corner and see 
another (different) Spider Ball Track. Head up it a few levels. Scan the   
Lore projector if you wish and follow the Tracks to the very top. A dead   
Luminoth can be Scanned up here if you want. Use another Kinetic Orb Cannon
to be blasted to the other side of the room, and then grab the nearby POWER
BOMB EXPANSION. Jump off this ledge.                                       

Long and complicated, huh? That's nothing really. Oh well. Head out the Light
door in the room of course.                                                

================================
Power Junction           
================================
Get into Morph Ball mode and roll under the several Diligence Drones that 
guard your way to the next door.                                           

================================
Reactor Access           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Ingsmasher

As soon as you enter the room, the doors lock and a giant enemy will come   
alive. This is an Ingsmasher. Its has a lot of health and wants to hit you  
on the head really badly. When the Ingsmasher is normal colored, use Super
Missiles against it. When it glows purple, use the Light Beam on it and when
it glows white, use Charged Dark Beam shots on him. Soon enough he will die.
BUT! His "other" friend in the room comes active and will try to kill you as
well. Kill him using the same method as before. Go through the other door in
this room once your done.                                                  

================================
Reactor Core           
================================
Walk around to the right and go through the door there.                     

================================
Save Station A           
================================
Save the game here in case....something happens. You'll always regret not 
Saving eventually.                                                         

================================
Reactor Core           
================================
Bring out the Dark Beam and head into the center of the room. You need to  
climb all the way to the top. The only way is to pretty much kill all of the
annoying Rezbits that are in your way. Use the Entangler shot followed by 
a Missile to quickly finish them all off. At the top, there's a Power Bomb 
door. Don't go through it, but rather the other door there.                

================================
Minigyro Chamber           
================================
Nothing much in here. Simple roll through the tunnel quickly to avoid the 
stupid Drones' attacks.                                                    

================================
Hall of Combat Mastery           
================================
Continue along through this room. Quickly. There are several Ingsmashers in
this room and they will all become active quickly. On the positive side, once
they are killed they will never reappear so...you may want to kill them all.
Your choice. Head up the Spider Ball Track halfway through the room to go  
past a glass barrier. Head through the door there.                         

================================
Central Area Transport East           
================================
Head into the hologram and ride the slow elevator to the very top then go out
the door infront of you.                                                    

================================
Dynamo Works           
================================
Nothing in here. Head through the Dark door across the room.               

================================
Dynamo Access           
================================
Use the Spider Ball Track to head over the central collomn as a little     
shortcut. Head through the next Dark door.                                 

================================
Main Gyro Chamber           
================================
Go through the Morph Ball tunnel to the right of you, and continue until you
reach a blue door. Go through.                                             

================================
Save Station B           
================================
A boss battle is coming up soon! I highly reccomend Saving of course. Exit 
when your done here.                                                     

================================
Main Gyro Chamber           
================================
Head back to the Dark door in the room (by following the Morph Ball tunnels)
and where we originally started in the room. Now, head up the elevator on  
the far left. Once you reach the top, you should see several containers   
just lying on the floor. Use a Power Bomb next to them and they will be    
destroyed, revealing a Bomb Slot. Activate the Bomb Slot to create another 
colored tile puzzle. To easily win, just hit the lower-left button 3 times,
followed by the upper-right button twice, and then the lower-right button 
twice and all of the colors will be matched up. Another Bomb Slot will appear
just slightly to the right.                                                

Activate this Bomb Slot. This will cause the second spinning ring in the   
large gyro to stop. It is in an awkward position and you may think your game
is glitched but it is not. Now, head back down the elevator, Save again if 
you really need to, then jump onto the gyro. Walk around to the second ring.
If there's an entrance to a Spider Ball Track on the ring there, roll onto 
it (if not its on the other side of the ring). Roll around the ring to the  
end and you'll be facing a cracked window. Boost Ball through the window.  
You may fail once or twice before succeeding. Destroy the Power Bomb door 
lock there and move through.                                               

================================
Checkpoint Station           
================================
Watch through the window there as Dark Samus murders several helpless Space
Pirates. Head to the right and wait for a door to slowly open. Once it has,
continue to be stuck by another door slowly opening. Head out into the main
area and...Dark Samus is gone? Hmmm.....well...there's a nearby blue door. 
Let's go through it.                                                       

================================
Aerie Transport Station           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Samus 2

You've disturbed Dark Samus's Phazon Frenzy. Its time to pay! She'll jam the
controls, starting the massive elevator.                                   

================================
Aerie Access           
================================
The first part of the battle has already begun. Dark Samus has many attacks 
up he aresenal now. She can now use the Boost Ball around the room and be 
even deadlier than the Boost Guardian, she shoots Phazon Missiles at you, 
and when you've chipped off enough health will begin reflecting some attacks
at you with her sheild.                                                     

================================
Aerie           
================================
Eventually the elevator will reach the very top of the Aerie. The rest of  
the fight will take place here. Simply finish off whatever remains of Dark 
Samus. From various sources I've heard the Dark Beam is the most effective
weapon against her. If your having trouble resort to that beam instead of 
whatever method you were just doing. Once you defeat her, she will blast open
a windown and fall off the cliff. Ouch. Go through the window onto a ledge.
Follow it around the Aerie until you reach a Portal. Activate the Portal then
go through it.                                                              

================================
Hive Summit           
================================
Almost done here. Head out along the ledge quickly. Once at the end you must
use the Spider Ball Track to enter the main area of the Summit. Once you drop
down into it, you need to enter a nearby Spinner. Boost in it several times
to change the direction of a nearby Spider Ball Track. Get on that track 
once finished, and Boost when neccessary and as well at the end of it. From
there, jump and shoot to open and go through the Portal.                   

================================
Aerie           
================================
Your just a small jump away from obtaining the Echo Visor. Just get the damn
thing already. Now you are able to see sound waves, shoot sonic sensors and
...some other cool stuff. Now, in order to unlock the elevator you must shoot
4 sonic sensors with the Echo Visor on. Lock onto them, and 1 Power Beam shot
shuts them off. Reveal the hologram and when your done here, get the hell 
out of this place.

Mission Difficulty:****/*****
Mission Objective:I'll be honest with you here, there are no tricks. No     
bosses. Few enemies. Short trips to Dark Aether. This is a rather simple   
Mission to obtain an old Metroid favorite, the Screw Attack. It'll prove more
useful than just 1-hit kill to enemies.                                     
Nah. Just messing with you. This Mission is really long, with an annoying   
boss and many annoying trips to the Dark World. Hope you have fun here! Come
on! Its the Screw Attack on the line!

As soon as you enter the room all of the doors will be locked, and you may 
faintly hear an odd noise. Slap on the Echo Visor to find a drone right near
you producing this annoying noise. Slap it with a few Power Beam shots to 
destroy the drone and to unlock the doors. Follow the only path around the 
room and go through the door there.

Jump out of the broken window infront of you and fall down to the very bottom
area. Scan the Lore Projector here if you haven't a long time ago by      
accident, then ride the elevator to the top and head through the Morph Ball 
tunnels to the far right side. Once you reach an opening, go through the

Head back through the short Morph Ball tunnels and back to the Dark door.  
Go through it.                                                             

================================
Dynamo Access           
================================
Use the Spider Ball track in the middle of the room to get over the wall, and
head out through the other Dark door.                                       

================================
Dynamo Works           
================================
Simply waltz to the other side of the room, using the Spider Ball Track to  
climb the wall leading to the door.                                         

================================
Central Area Transport East           
================================
Stupid long elevator ride. Get in the hologram and make it snappy already. 
Go out the door at the bottom.                                             

================================
Hall of Combat Mastery           
================================
Use the Spider Ball Trans (again) right near you to get past the wall, then 
head left and keep walking through the glass tube to the Portal Machine.   
Activate it, then step inside.                                              

================================
Culling Chamber           
================================
Dark Temple Key 1:Head through the Spider Ball maze to reach this.         

Step forwards and jump across the gap where the glass tube once was. Several
Dark Pirate Commando's are running around the room and this Key is much    
easier to obtain when you aren't disturbed by them so...kill them easily.  
Halfway through the room you will see a Spider Ball Track. Get on the Track 
and start rolling on it. Its nothing like the giant maze in Light Aether, 
everything is one way and very short. Follow the path around the glass   
encasing to a small confinment with the Key in it. Bomb the blocks around it,
then grab the first Temple Key. Roll back around and out of the glass area
and head back through the Portal.                                          

================================
Hall of Combat Mastery           
================================
Continue straight ahead and follow the room around. Look to the left and you
can easily use the Spider Ball Track as a shortcut through this room. Many
Ingsmashers will be attacking you in this room if you have yet to kill them
so be careful. Head out the door on the other side of the room.            

================================
Minigyro Chamber           
================================
Several Diligence Class Drone's are occuppying this room. Quickly roll      
through the gyro before you take too much damage from the creeps. Head out 
the door on the other side.                                                 

================================
Reactor Core           
================================
Don't fall down off the ledge! Walk around the wall, to the other door in 
this room. Use a Power Bomb to break off the shielding on the door, then 
go right on through it.                                                    

================================
Transit Station           
================================
We're about to get another Power Bomb Expansion....but it takes several short
Portal trips to get through this room and reach it. Blast the Luminoth    
Turret nearby, then use a Power Bomb on some cracked glass on the left wall.
Head through the revealed Portal.                                          

================================
Hive Portal Chamber           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Ingsmasher

Head to the left and quickly. There's no safe zones in this room. A giant 
explosion will occur and a Dark Ingsmasher will crash through a wall. This 
opens a path to a Portal we need to get through behind it. These Ingsmashers
are no different from their "brothers". Of course...1 Power Bomb murders  
them but hehehe.... Head through the Portal.                               

================================
Transit Station           
================================
Look to the left and you will find a small hole. Head through the tunnel, and
through the Portal on the other side.                                      

================================
Hive Portal Chamber           
================================
Look to the right now and you will see some Spider Ball Tracks. Climb them 
to a different area of the room and it will drop you off near one last Portal
so go through this one as well.                                            

================================
Transit Station           
================================
Power Bomb Expansion:Across the Spider Ball Track.                         

You should be near (more) Spider Ball Tracks. Roll over them, and you will 
come to a small area with a POWER BOMB EXPANSION in it. Grab it, then use 
the Spider Ball Track and drop off into the main room. Head out the last door
in here you have yet to go through.                                        

================================
Main Research           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Caretaker Class Drone
Logbook Lore Scan:Torvus Falls

Missile Expansion:Through the Spider Ball Track on the right wall.          

There are 2 Quad's at the bottom of the room. Jump off the ledge and take 
care of them. You should know how to easily beat these guys by now. Look on
the right wall of the room for a Spider Ball Track. This leads to a MISSILE
EXPANSION at the end of it. You need to carefully traverse it though, there
is some...machinery that will knock you off if you hit it so time your moves
carefully. After obtaining the Expansion, break away all 4 Sonic Locks with
the Echo Visor. FOR GOODNESS SAKE DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE AT ALL BREAK
1, 2, OR 3 LOCKS AND THEN LEAVE THE ROOM. You will be royally screwed. Your
game is over. Its near impossible to beat the game if you do that. Why?    
Breaking the Sonic Locks opens a door revealing a Portal. Breaking only a  
few locks doesn't seem harmful, but if you leave the room the room resets in
an odd way that makes that door impossible to open. If you did this by     
accident and DID NOT save, its okay. Just turn the game off and get back to
this point. If you did Save well....I'm sorry but your outta luck here.   
Anyways, go through the Portal.                                             

================================
Staging Area           
================================
2 Warrior Ing's are in this room. They, as you should know, are hell to take
down so try to ignore them. There are 2 Sonic Locks in this room. Use the 
Echo Visor to locate and destroy them, opening a door revealing a Scan      
Console. Scanning it will lift the giant tube slightly so you can squeeze  
under it. There is another Portal under the tube. Ready for a boss battle?
Head through the Portal.                                                   

================================
Main Research           
================================
Its not too late....if you go up the Spider Ball Tracks infront of you, you
won't be able to Scan the Caretaker Class Drone anymore. Go back and Scan if
you need to, then head up the Track. You will need to Boost at the end, and
will appear on a circular Spider Ball Track. This is the battle with the 
Caretaker Class Drone, and it is quite a fun battle. The object is to      
avoid his attacks by Boosting front one side of the circle to the other    
until a tiny red light appear on the Drone. Boost into that light. Once you
have Boosted through the light 3 times, wait a little while for the main body
to breifly appear. Its big and impossible to miss wherever you Boost. It   
appears for less than a second so you will need some good reaction time!   
Hitting this damages the Caretaker Drone, and it will move up higher in the 
room. Use the Spider Ball Track to do the same. Level 2 is exactly the same..
except the track has 2 holes in it so you can hold a direction the whole time
to avoid damage. Level 3 has 3 holes in the track making it very difficult
to avoid his arms. 1 last thing-DON'T FALL ONTO THE GROUND! The Drone will 
instantaniously electrify the ground until you get off of it, giving major 
damage. Once you've hit the central core 3 times, the Drone will be       
destroyed. Head up the tracks one last time to roll through a tunnel,      
dropping you off near a door. Go through it.                               

================================
Central Area Transport West           
================================
Missile Expansion:Inside the tunnels accessible at the top of the room.    

Use the Echo Visor to find a drone emitting Sonic Waves. Destroy it to     
reveal a Kinetic Orb Cannon. Get inside and wait a few moments as you get  
blasted from cannon to cannon eventually getting to the top of the room.   
At the top, look to the left to find 3 holes in the ground. They lead to   
a Missile Expansion...well not all of them exactly. You have to take a      
certain order to accomplish this. Take the left-most of the three holes, then
when you reach another fork in the road take the left-most of the holes and
then the right-most of the holes. You will drop into a MISSILE EXPANSION and
be back at the bottom of the room. Get back to the top via the Cannon's and
go out the door there.                                                      

================================
Watch Station           
================================
Logbook Lore Scan:Sanctuary Falls

Jump on one of the 2 nearby platforms circling around the room and wait on 
it until you reach another platform with a few Rezbits nearby. There is a  
Luminoth Lore Projector nearby you can Scan. Head to the right, ignoring the
Rezbits and go out the Light door.                                         

================================
Watch Station Access           
================================
Energy Tank:Right next to you.                                            

Hop off the ledge and look to the left to find an ENERGY TANK just open for 
the grabbing. Nearby is a Scan Console. Scan it to lower some Grapple Points
across a nearby pit. This leads back to the Main Gyro Chamber. A nice useful
shortcut...for later... But for now head back out the previous Light door.  

================================
Watch Station           
================================
Beam Ammo Expansion:Follow the below process.                               

Look to the left to find a nearby ledge you can easily jump to. There is a 
Spider Ball Track there you need to Bomb Jump onto. Do so and follow the   
Tracks high above the room until you reach a Kinetic Orb Cannon. Drop into 
the Cannon, and it will fire you over to some more Spider Ball Tracks. Be   
sure to hold R to cling onto them after being shot from the cannon! This   
part is quite confusing. Follow the Spider Ball Tracks in the obvious     
directions they are pointing towards until you see 1 long streach of track 
leading to a Bomb Slot, another leading to a spinning platform. For the Ammo
Expansion, we want the spinning platform to the left. Bomb up to the platform
on the left. If you just stay onto the platform, you will be brought into a
red square which will damage you and knock you off the tracks and you will 
have to do this all over again. You need to Bomb Jump to the next spinning  
platform before getting hit. To easily do this, there are 2 sticks you will
pass while being spun. Lay a Bomb as you pass them. Repeat this for the next
spinning platform and you will land yourself on more Spider Ball Track,    
leading inside a tunnel. Get into it, and about halfway through you will see
a side-tunnel. Go through it, and you will be in a room with a BEAM AMMO   
EXPANSION. Grab it, then head back to the main tube and head all the way  
right to be shot out of the tunnel.                                         

Now, repeat the above process until you reach the Bomb Slot I mentioned   
earlier. You want to Bomb it to release a gate giving access to a Portal.  
Do so, then enter the Portal.                                              

================================
Aerial Training Site           
================================
2 Dark Pirate Commando's are in this room. Nothing major. Just a short hop 
to the door on the right.                                                  

================================
Judgement Drop           
================================
You need to cross to the other side of the room with many Grapple Points. 
But...many Dark Preeds are there to get in your way. Before Grappling, kill
off all of the Dark Preeds then swing over to the last platform. Jump onto  
the left ledge, then onto a lower ledge which contains a Portal Machine.   
Activate it and go through.                                                 

================================
Grand Abyss           
================================
Turn around to the right and jump to the platform there, then turn around and
onto the ledge we were just a few moments ago. Head down the short hallway
to the left and out the door.                                              

================================
Vault           
================================
Ignore or kill the Rezbit infront of you, then cross the bridge to the main 
vault infront of you. Yup. That spinning object is indeed the Screw Attack.
So close, yet so far away. We need to release the bars to get the item. Head
down the ledges to find a Scan Console. Scan it to lower a bridge. Cross it
to find a Portal. Head through it.                                         

================================
Vault Attack Portal           
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark War Wasp

Scan one of the War Wasps that is buzzing around the Grapple Points in the 
distance, then quickly Grapple yourself across the gap. If you don't do so 
fast enough, you are likely to get hit and fall down into the abyss and have
to start over again. Once on the other side, activate the Portal there and
go through it.                                                              

================================
Vault           
================================
Now for the fun part. Jump to the left platform and get inside the Spinner 
that is there. Turn the little thing on the platform so it is facing the  
actualy vault inside the room. Get out of the Spinner, and then work your 
way around the room making sure you do this for all 4 Spinners. There are  
many Rezbits in this room that will try to hinder your progress so try not
to get massacerred by them, okay? Once your done here, head back to the    
Portal and go through.                                                      

================================
Vault Attack Portal           
================================
Just Grapple your way to the other side of the room. If your having a lot  
of interference with the Dark War Wasps in this room, you can always destroy
their hives to ensure they can't reappear. Simply head for the Portal on the
other side of the room and use it.                                         

================================
Vault           
================================
Head across the bridge towards the vault, and look around for a Bomb Slot  
on the lower level. Activate it and the 4 things you moved around in this 
room earlier will shoot lasers. If all 4 were turned around to face the vault
it will open up successfully, revealing the Screw Attack. Go claim the     
wonderful prize! It takes a bit of practice to use to escape this room.    
First, you need to Space Jump. Afterwards, press B again to start Screw    
Attacking. Every time Samus starts to lower while spinning, press B again 
to continue Screwing (this explaination is wrong in so many ways >_>). You
will be able to cover long horizontal distance this way. You can only      
press B 5 times before exiting out of Screw Attack mode, but that's more   
than enough to cover the distances you need. Pressing B too fast or too slow
will result in a failed Screw Attack, ending the Screw in mid-air...not    
quite the best thing over a bottomless pit. Screw Attack to the door in this
room and leave.

onto the moving platforms and ride them over to a ledge with a door. Go    
through the door.

================================
Logbook Research Scan:Wall Jump Surface

Look at the weird dotted walls on the left and right (which can be Scanned).
These are Wall Jump Surfaces....and with the Screw Attack we can perform an
old Metroid trick-Wall Jumping. Simpler to do in 3-D than in sidescrollers.
Screw Attack into the wall, then push B to push yourself to the next wall, 
and keep doing so until you reach the top of the shaft. Unlike normal      
Screw Attacking, you can Wall Jump over and over again until you take too  
long to push B or..you reach the top. Your not limited to 5 jumps like you 
may suspect. So, take your time getting up this really long shaft and out 
the top door.

Walk forward and collect Dark Temple Key 3 (Don't worry-#2 will come shortly)
And then Scan the terminal to release the force field around this ledge, and
get the cryptic message "End of Road". Anyways, Screw Attack to the left to
land on the platform a long ways away and head for the Portal. Nearby are  
some Wall Jump Surfaces, which at the top is a small hole holding a MISSILE
EXPANSION. Jump back down and go through the Portal.

Dark Temple Key:Top of the room.

There are many useful side-rooms around this room. But first, let's get the
Dark Temple Key. Get onto the Spider Ball Track and climb your way to the  
top, avoiding the Darkling Tentacles. At the very top, Boost onto a circle 
ring track, and then Boost into the final Dark Temple Key up there. You    
finally have assembled all 3. Yay.                                          

Now for some useful stuff. Take the highest blue door in the room that is  
opposite the door you used to enter this room. Work your way over the      
platforms to the room.                                                     

================================
Hive Ammo Station           
================================
Refill all of your Ammo. You will be needing everything for the upcoming boss
battle. Afterwards, leave the room.                                         

================================
Hive Gyro Chamber           
================================
There is a Red-Missile door in the room. It is directly below the ledge you
are standing on now. Jump onto a nearby platform to get down there, break  
the sheild and head through.                                                

================================
Save Station 2           
================================
Save the game. You may de in this battle....and you may not. All depends on 
your skill. Leave now.                                                      

================================
Hive Gyro Chamber           
================================
Now, take the blue door right above the door that leads to the Hive        
Dynamo Access room.                                                         

================================
Hive Temple Access           
================================
Step into the light to place all 3 keys, opening the gateway to the Temple.
Head through the next door.                                                 

================================
Hive Temple            
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Quadraxis
Logbook Creatures Scan:Sheilded Head Module
Logbook Creatures Scan:Damaged Quadraxis
Logbook Creatures Scan:Stunned Head Module
Logbook Creatures Scan:Final Head Module

Wow. That is the biggest robot I have every seen. This is the big daddy of 
all Quad's-Quadraxis. He's big, he's mean, he's strong, and he's not going 
down without a good fight. Scan him of course.                             

His health bar isn't of importance in this battle. You have to do certain  
things before progressing to the next stage. In the first stage of the     
battle, Quadraxis will move about in place, occasionally shooting missiles 
at you. You need to shoot a Super Missile at all 4 of his knee-caps. They 
are vulnerable ONLY when they are flashing colors. Once a knee-cap has been
damaged, you can no longer Lock-On to it so don't worry about that.        
Occasionally, he will use a targeting system to target you with the        
Annihilator Beam. Its quite obvious when the giant red redicule appears on  
your screen. If so, quickly start Boosting around the arena to dodge the   
attack. If Quadraxis becomes a spinning vortex, he won't be moving, but he 
will be acting like a tornado by sucking you into him for damage. A few    
Light Beam shots to his legs and he will stop the attack. Finally, Quadraxis
can jump into the air and create large powerful shockwaves. Just continue  
hitting his knee-caps.                                                     

Once all of them are broken, the Head Module will detach from the main,    
broken body. Scan the Head Module, and the Damaged Quadraxis body. The Head
Module will summon 2 Dark Quad's. This is your LAST chance to Scan them, so
do it now before you forget. Flip on your Echo Visor and you'll see that the
body is transmitting commands to the Head Module. Destroy the beacon on the
Body. This will stun the Head Module and three antenaee's on its body will  
appear. You only have time to Super Missile one of these beacon's to death. 
Simply repeat this process until all the antenaee's have been destroyed.   

Now for the finale. The Head Module will break away a lot of the Body of 
the Quadraxis, revealing several Spider Ball Tracks on its legs. Scan the  
new Head Module, then shoot it with a Super Missile. This should stun it. 
Scan the last Head, then watch what direction it starts wondering around  
the arena in. Follow its direction and get ontop of the Spider Ball Track  
infront of it. When the Head comes by, Boosting onto the Spider Ball Track
on its head, get into one of the slots and lay a Bomb. Repeat this process 
once more for the other slot.                                              

...and that is it. You've destroyed Quadraxis. Go grab the Annihilator Beam
nearby. This Beam uses Dark and Light Ammo, homes in on enemies and when   
charged up, has the same effect as a Charged Wave Beam from the original   
Metroid Prime (However, it stuns foes for much longer a time). Climb the   
Spider Ball Track to the top of the pillar and Screw Attack over to the far 
away Annihilator Beam door.

Mission Difficulty:Boring/*****
Mission Objective:Time to obtain every Expansion, Item, and Suit we were    
unable to do long ago. And yes, it is very boring. Collect Expansion after  
Expansion, room after room. But hey, nothing can really kill you right? Were
nearly ready for our final assult on the Sky Temple.

While you wait for the damn thing to turn around, why not take this chance 
to loook at my other FAQ's?                                                 

================================
Hive Energy Controller            
================================
Head over to the Energy Controller and let Samus get rid of all of the      
stored Energy. Its practically impossible to see anything in the Ing Hive now
as a creepy red dust meanders across the wasteland. Ummm...yeah. Exit back 
out the only door.

================================
Hive Temple            
================================
Use the Screw Attack to reach the tall pillar in the middle of the room. From
there, turn to the left towards another Annihilator Beam door. Screw Attack 
over there and go out the door.                                            

================================

Logbook Creatures Scan:Ingstorm

There are hundreds of tiny dots in this room, AKA Ingstorm's. They produce 
an invisible energy when really close together which quickly reduces metals
and all other materials into scrap in seconds. That includes Samus. Scan them
then Boost through this room ASAP. Your taking 80 damage per second. OUCH. 
Out the door on the other side!

Logbook Research Scan:Super Crystal
Logbook Research Scan:Super Beacon

The Annihilator Beam also has 1 other very deadly effect:Its use on Beacons 
and Crystals. Use on on the Crystal nearby and its will be super energized.
The Dark Energy atracts Ing to the Beacon, while the Light Energy instantly
kills them once they are near it. Scan the Super Beacon and Crystal, then 
head through the Light Portal.

================================
Watch Station            
================================
There are several Pirate Aerotroopers in here. Kill them all, then head     
through the blue door on ahigh ledge (Which, if we were on Dark Aether, would
lead to Temple Security Access).                                            

================================
Sentinel's Path            
================================
Missile Expansion:Behind a door with Echo Locks.                            

There are several Mekenobites in this room, and it is very easy to die to 
their powerful attacks. Defeat them with Seeker Missiles. Head through to the
other side, but stop once you reach some small sticks out of the ground, and
another door nearby. These are Echo Locks. You use the Annihilator Beam on 
them to translate a high pitched frequency at a nearby door, and it will   
open with the correct combonation. To open the door, hit Right Lock twice,  
then the Left Lock once, then the Right one again (The one in the Center   
isn't used). This will open the door, revealing a MISSILE EXPANSION. Go out 
the Annhilator door nearby.                                                

================================
Sanctuary Temple            
================================
Use the Grapple Beam to swing over to the middle platform, then use two more
Grapple swings to reach the door on the far right of you. Or...you could use
the Screw Attack :)

================================
So the ghost said to the kid "I'm-a ghost" and the kid was like "Then I'm-a
Mario!" and the ghost got pissed off at the kid for impersonating him. The 
question? Who was the ghost?                                                

================================
Sanctuary Energy Controller

Get over to the Energy Controller and place the last batch of Energy into it.
We finally re-claimed all of Aether's Energy. Mission Accomplished? Hell no.
One more assignment left...

The answer to the above question is Mario. I'm quite sure you found that    
riddle very hard, right?                                                   

================================
Sanctuary Temple            
================================
So many items...so little time! We're making the final round-up of the Keys,
Expansions, and last Suit before making the assult on the Sky Temple. Its   
very easy from here on out. Let's go! Screw Attack over to the platform on 
the right, and out its door.                                                

================================
Worker's Path            
================================
Use the Kinetic Orb Cannon to reach the other side of the room, and then go 
out its door. I prefer Screw Attack though beause...its just more fun. Yay 
for funness!                                                                

================================
Dynamo Works            
================================
Remember this room? The so hellish rooom you fought the Spider Guardian in...
very long ago. Continue through this room to the very end and through the  
tunnel to the spot where you picked up the Spider Ball. Use a Power Bomb to
open the door there.                                                        

================================
Dynamo Storage            
================================
I'll just give you a hint of what to do in here. It starts with "P" and     
rhymes with "Mortal".                                                       

================================
Hive Cache 3            
================================
Go out the door.                                                            

================================
Hive Dynamo Works            
================================
Sky Temple Key:Other side of the room. Use Boost Ball.

Logbook Research Scan:Flying Ing Cache

Look over to the right to find a nearby Spider Ball Track. Its time we earned
our first Sky Temple Key. Get to the top of the Spider Ball Track and use   
the Boost Ball to get over onto the big sphere. Look for a red dot on the  
sphere and get on it, and wait for that sphere and the next sphere to be    
nearly aligned, then Boost onto it. Repeat this process to get onto the last
sphere, then you want to Boost over onto a Spider Ball Track on the wall via
the red dot...again. Once there, make your way onto the platform and       
un-morph. Flip on the Dark Visor to see something right above you. Hit it   
with any weapon then switch to the Scan Visor and Scan the Flying Ing Cache.
Smack it with a Missile to destroy the Cache, and to release the Sky Temple 
Key it was holding. Woo! 1 down, 8 to go! Use the Screw Attack to head back 
to the far away platform and out the door.                                 

================================
Hive Cache 3

Exit out the door infront of you.                                           

================================
Dynamo Works            
================================
Enter the Spider Ball maze. Head along the maze, using Bomb Jumps whenever 
you need to to reach more track. Once you reach the third area of where you
fought the Spider Guardian, head to the very top of it and Bomb Jump to    
a small tunnel. Head along it for a shortcut back outside Dynamo Works. Head
through the nearby Dark door.                                              

================================
Dynamo Access            
================================
Use a Dark Beam shot to kill the stupid Diligence Drone infront of you, then
use the Spider Ball Track in the middle of the room to climb over the wall. 
The go out the other Dark door.                                             

================================
Main Gyro Chamber            
================================
Power Bomb Expansion:Inside the nucleus of the gyro.                       

Use the elevator placed right near the door to get down to the very bottom 
of the room. Here you will find 3 Echo Locks, and ahead an Echo Door guarding
something. Shoot the locks in the following order with the Annihilator Beam:
Closest to Echo Door, Closest to Elevator, The on in the middle twice. This
should open the gate, revealing a Kinetic Orb Cannon. Get inside and you will
blast through the center of the gyro, destroying it and revealing a POWER   
BOMB EXPANSION. Go ahead and grab it.                                      

Head right back up the elevator and then to the elevator near the Light door
to reach the top of the room. Head out the door there.                     

================================
Temple Access            
================================
Missile Expansion:Under the glass.

Use an Entangler shot followed by a Missile to quickly and easily kill both
of the Rezbits inside of the room. Now, look on the back wall and flip on the
Dark Visor. 4 Seeker Targets should become visible. Hit them all with the   
Seeker Missile to activate a Kinetic Orb Cannon. Use it to get back to the  
upper level of the room. There is a Sonic Lock up here, so shoot it with   
the Echo Visor to start a timer and to move a nearby platform. Jump off of 
the platform, and rush to the Kinetic Orb Cannon. Get inside and you will  
be blasted into a tube, and fall under the glass in the room. Grab the    
nearby MISSILE EXPANSION. Use the Spinner to move some glass around,       
revealing the exit. Now, head back to the upper level of the room and back to
the gyro chhamber.                                                          

================================
Main Gyro Chamber

Turn around and head down the nearby elevator to the middle floor of the    
room. Then head to the left until you see a Dark door. Go through it.      

================================
Dynamo Access            
================================
...been through this room oh so many times. Kill the Drone with a Dark Beam 
shot, use the Spider Ball as a shortcut over the wall, kill the next Drone,
and exit out the next door.                                                 

================================
Dynamo Works            
================================
Head to the middle of the room and look to the right. Flip on your Scan    
Visor and look for Pillbugs inside the Spider Guardian's maze. If you missed
them long ago you can always find them here. Anyways, head to the end of the
room, up the Spider Ball Track, and out the door.                           

================================
Central Area Transport East            
================================
Ride down the really really big elevator shaft. Once at the bottom, head   
out the door.                                                              

================================
Hall of Combat Mastery            
================================
Use the Spider Ball Track slightly to the right of you to enter the main   
area of the room. Head to the left, towards the Portal. Once your inside the
blue glass tube, stop. Place a Power Bomb. Old Retro style, the glass will  
break giving access to a nearby door. Go out it.                           

================================
Agon Transport Access            
================================
There are 2 Quad's patrolling this room. Scan the Main Body and Control    
Module (head) if you need to, but otherwise ignore them as you rush over to
the other side of the room.                                                

================================
Transport to Agon Wastes            
================================
Scan the Scan Console nearby to activate the hologram on he elevator. Then,
enter the elevator.                                                        

================================
Transport to Sanctuary Fortress            
================================
Open the Power Bomb Door with...a Power Bomb. Hopefully you haven't run out
of their ammo because you will be needing them for several tasks very soon.
Go through the door.

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

================================
Ventilation Area A            
================================
Missile Expansion:Top of the room; use Bomb Jumps up several ledges to reach
the Expansion.                                                             

Roll out the tunnel onto you get to the main area of the shaft. Here you can
go left or right. If you want the Expansion, head right. Roll past the      
Pillbug's to the end of the passage (But still inside the tunnel) and you  
will be able to Bomb Jump up to a ledge. On the next ledge, goto the next   
ledge. Up here simply roll into the MISSILE EXPANSION. Fall back down and   
head out the door on the far left.                                         

================================
Sandcanyon            
================================
Power Bomb Expansion:Screw Attack over to the platform in the middle and lay
a Power Bomb.                                                             

Use the Screw Attack to reach the platform in the very middle of the room.  
It is very small so you may overshoot or undershoot several times before    
succeeding. Once there, use a Power Bomb. This will break off the giant    
structure that was once there and will reveal a POWER BOMB EXPANSION. Fall  
off the nearby ledge to be placed back to the door you just were. Go right  
back through it.                                                            

================================
Ventilation Area A            
================================
We're gonna be in Agon Wastes for quite a while now. Avoid the Pillbugs and 
go all the way to the right and out the door.                               

================================
Main Reactor            
================================
Missile Expansion:Use the Spider Ball Track on the lower level and several 
Boosts to reach the Expansion.                                             

There's a Luminoth right next to you when you enter the room. Scan it if you
haven't done so already, then head down the elevator to the lower level of 
the room. There is a Spider Ball Track here. Go up it. It'll lead back to 
where we just were, and another Spider Ball Track. Head up that one and you
will soon reach the end of it inside a piston tunnel. Use the Boost Ball   
with proper timing to Boost from one piston to another. If you fall down,  
quickly roll out of the hole there. There is Phazon below you, and it hurts
badly. At the end, use a Power Bomb on the glass to reveal a MISSILE       
EXPANSION. Use the hole to get out of the tunnel.                         

Head to the other side of the room and use the elevator to get to the upper
level. Walk around the room, and go past the Dark door. Head through the   
blue door once you reach it.                                               

================================
Sand Processing            
================================
Missile Expansion:Behind the sand.                                          

Walk through the short passageway until 2 Turrets attack you. Destroy them  
both then use the half-pipe in here to Boost onto the right side of the    
arena. Its really hard because the camera tends to no co-operate with you. 
At the top, you should find a hole. This leads to a small room with several
computers. Once of them can be Scanned. This will lower all of the sand in 
the room, and will also reveal a small cave behind it containing a MISSILE  
EXPANSION. Use the half-pipe near where the Expansion was to get to the top
of the room so you are able to head down the small tunnel there and go out
the door.                                                                   

================================
Save Station C            
================================
You will probably want to Save the game. You never know what might happen  
to you. Exit out the other door of the room.                                

================================
Ventilation Area B            
================================
A simple, short and boring room. Simply roll all the way through the tunnel 
and out the other door.                                                    

================================
Bioenergy Production            
================================
Several Tallon Metroids are in this room. Use an Entangler shot follwed by  
a Missile to dispose of them all. Head to the right side of the room and Scan
the only panel here to activate the storage units. They will all rise to the
top of the room. Head to the other side of the room where you can control the
placements of the panels. Make a staircase out of them with some trial and 
error judgement. Once a staircase has been formed, head to the highest      
storage unit. Screw Attack over to a small ledge with a Green Door on it.  
Use a Super Missile on the door and go through.                            

================================
Storage C            
================================
Missile Expansion:Must I explain where THIS on is?                         

There's nothing in this room besides some fires and a MISSILE EXPANSION    
infront of your face. Leave after getting it.                               

================================
Bioenergy Production            
================================
Jump back down to the bottom floor and head left. Once you reach the door,  
exit out of it.                                                             

================================
Security Station A            
================================
I'm changing the subject of discussion to trains and there is nothing you   
can do about it.                                                           

================================
Biostorage Station            
================================
There is a lot of Phazon spread out across the room, and many Infant Tallon 
Metroids. If they touch the Phazon they will mutate into normal Tallon     
Metroids. Just run to the only other blue door in the room.                

================================
Biostorage Access            
================================
There are two Turrets in this room. Ignore them of destroy them, then run 
to the other door.                                                          

================================
Command Center            
================================
Several Pirate Grendaiers are in this room. The only thing we need to do is
activate and enter the Portal. Kill the Pirates or simply ignore them and  
head through the Portal.

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

================================
Doomed Entry            
================================
Head left and up the nearby platforms. We won't be in Dark Agon Wastes too 
long. Once there, head right along the platforms until you come to a Dark  
door. Head through it.                                                     

================================
Oasis Access            
================================
Several Warrior Ing's inhabit this room. Ignore them and simply run through 
to the next room.                                                          

================================
Dark Oasis            
================================
Use a Power Bomb on the wall infront of you to reveal...dark water? A Sky  
Temple Key lies inside a Flying Ing Cache under the water. Its impossible  
to obtain it right now. You don't NEED to use a Power Bomb right now but now
you don't have to do it later. Head to the right and go through the door   
right next to the Portal.                                                   

================================
Hall of Stairs            
================================
Use the pillar in the center of the room to use as a platforms to reach the 
door at the top of the room.                                                

================================
Save Station 3            
================================
There won't be another Save Station for quite a while now. Better Save now  
while you have the chance.                                                 

================================
Bitter Well            
================================
Continue through the short Morph Ball tunnel until you reach a small pit with
some Phazon at the bottom. You can easily just roll into it and Bomb Jump  
out of it. Then continue right and out the door.                            

================================
Phazon Site            
================================
There are several Dark Tallon Metroids here you can Scan if you didn't do so
earlier. Destroy all of them as they only get in your way. Get onto the    
moving platforms and wait for the second one to reach the top of its path.  
Use the Screw Attack to reach a small ledge with an Annhilator door in the 
distance. Go through it.                                                   

================================
Ing Cache 2            
================================
The Sonic Boom is sitting right there in the middle of the room. It is the 
final charge combo you need. Its for the Annhilator Beam, uses 30 Dark and 
Light Ammo, and 5 Missiles. It launches a huge blast of sound energy into 
the distance almost instantaniously and cause major damage. But, its not   
worth it because of the Ammo costs. Try out your new toy if you want, then 
leave the room.                                                            

================================
Phazon Site            
================================
Jump all the way back down to the bottom of the room and then head out the 
only other door you haven't been through yet to the left.                   

================================
Feeding Pit            
================================
There is a little bit of Phazon infront of you and what looks like a wall  
protecting it. There is no wall despite the illusion there is. Jump over the
Phazon to the bottom of the room and head to the right and go through the 
Light door once you reach it.                                              

================================
Feeding Pit Access            
================================
Nothing of intrest in this short and straight room. Just head through quickly
and out the next door.                                                      

================================
Doomed Entry            
================================
Right back where we started, eh? Jump on the platform infront of you and head
for the Dark door on your left this time around.                            

================================
Double Path            
================================
Several Dark Splinters are in the room. Create a Super Beacon to watch 'em 
burn away, and head to the next room.                                      

================================
Battleground            
================================
Sky Temple Key:Across the "invisible" platforms.

There are several Warrior Ing in this room, and they will make this Key a   
living hell if you don't kill them. Create a Super Beacon with an Annhilator
shot to quickly dispose of them. Flip on your Dark Visor to see several    
moving platforms across the gap infront of you, with a Flying Ing Cache on 
the other side of the room. Cross the platforms carefully-they are NOT     
synchronized with eachother so the timing is very awkward. On the last    
platform, wait until its at the top before you Screw Attack over to the ledge
with the Flying Ing Cache. Once there, you know what to do to retrieve our 
second Sky Temple Key. Jump off the ledge, turn around, and head through the
Super Missile door.                                                        

================================
Warrior's Walk            
================================
Missile Expansion:Break away the floor with a Bomb and quickly head through
Phazon to obtain this.                                                     

Head along the room with the Scan Visor on until you see a point which when
Scanned (a point on the ground that is) reveals that it is broken and can  
be blasted away. Place a Bomb here to break a hole in the ground into the  
Phazon. Roll into the hole and quickly roll to the nearby MISSILE EXPANSION 
the jump right back out of the pit again. Head along the room to another   
Super Missile door. Go through it.                                          

================================
Judgement Pit            
================================
Jump right off the high ledge and run across the room, past some pillar to  
the only blue door on the bottom level of the room.                         

================================
Junction Site            
================================
Missile Expansion:Its just...there....                                     

Roll into the tunnel and once in the middle you should see a Missile       
Expansion below you and a Bomb Slot above you. Use the Spider Ball Track to 
reach the Bomb Slot and activate it, switching the...thing below you around 
so a path to the bottom is open. Drop down and collect the MISSILE EXPANSION.
Roll back up the track and activate the Bomb Slot again to switch the path 
so you can exit the room to the right.                                     

================================
Judgement Pit            
================================
We're done in Dark Aether. Time to find a Portal. Use the ledges placed    
around the room to eventually reach the top. Head out the door near the    
Luminoth Statue.                                                           

================================
Warrior's Walk            
================================
Nothing intresting in this room anymore. Avoid the hole as you progress to 
the next room.                                                              

================================
Battleground            
================================
Head across the room quickly so you don't have to deal with the Warrior Ing.
Go through the Light door.                                                 

================================
Double Path            
================================
Just head to the other side, getting rid of any Darkling Tentacles that are 
in your way.                                                               

================================
Doomed Entry            
================================
Jump over to the platform infront of you and head over to the left and out 
the other nearby Dark door.                                                

================================
Oasis Access            
================================
Go through this room...                                                    

================================
Dark Oasis            
================================
Head over to the right until you reach the Portal. Finally, we can leave this
place...

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

================================
Main Reactor            
================================
Head to the right until you reach a Dark door. Go through it.               

================================
Security Station B            
================================
Be careful of the lasers in this room. Avoid them, and keep heading through
to the next room.                                                           

================================
Command Center            
================================
Either fall to the bottom and use the Dark door down there, or use the Light
door on the top floor of the room.                                         

================================
Command Center Access            
================================
A simple short room reguardless of which path you took from the previous    
room. Head through the next door.                                           

================================
Central Mining Station            
================================
Head across the room and out the next door. To the left are some Pirate    
Skiff's if you've missed their Scan before.                                

================================
Central Station Access            
================================
Just head through the room, ignoring any pointless distractions and dangerous
chemicals that may be in here ;)                                           

================================
Mining Station A            
================================
Missile Expansion:Use a Power Bomb to reveal a Kinetic Orb Cannon which will
shoot you up to the Expansion.                                             

There are two Pirate Aertroopers in here which are annoying so take care of
them. Once they are gone, jump to the bottom floor if you aren't already    
there. Flip on the Scan Visor and look around for a Bendenzium covering down
here. Use a Power Bomb once you locate its location to reveal a Kinetic Orb
Cannon. Get inside it and hold R. You will be blasted up to some Spider Ball
Tracks high in the room. Drop down and Bomb Jump to another set of Tracks to
reach the MISSILE EXPANSION at the end of the path. Head out the other door 
at the top of the room from here.                                          

================================
Temple Access            
================================
There are several Shreikbats in here. Kill them if you want to as you make  
your way through the room.                                                  

================================
Agon Temple            
================================
Take the path to the left around the room until you reach a Dark door. Head 
through this door.                                                         

================================
Mine Shaft            
================================
Get into Morph Ball mode and roll all the way down the tunnel, avoiding the 
Pillbug's along the way.                                                  

================================
Mining Station B            
================================
Walk over to the Bomb Slot and use the Scan Visor to ensure your standing   
right next to a Bendenzium wall. Use a Power Bomb to destroy the wall, and  
go through the revealed door.                                              

================================
Storage A            
================================
Missile Expansion:Are you blind?                                            

Just walk into the room and pick up the MISSILE EXPANSION just...sitting   
there. These Expansions just keep on getting easier to obtain don't they?   
Leave after you've obtained it.                                            

================================
Mining Station B            
================================
Normally there would be a shortcut out of here if the end of it wasn't barred
up so...we're gonna have to take the long way back to the Temple Grounds.  
Use the nearby Kinetic Orb Cannon to be blasted up to the door leading back
to the Mine Shaft.                                                         

================================
Mine Shaft            
================================
Your gonna have to use a lot of Bomb Jumps to reach the top of the room. Head
through the door up there.                                                 

================================
Agon Temple            
================================
Head to the right this time around until you reach a blue door. Head through.

================================
Temple Access            
================================
More Shreikbats in this room. Kill them all, and simply proceed through.    

================================
Mining Station A            
================================
Nothing intresting in this room besides the Space Pirates. Ignore them and 
exit out the door at the bottom of the room.                               

================================
Mining Station Access            
================================
Rolling, rolling, rolling! Gotta keep on rolling back those prices! Huh? Er
ummm....you heard nothing from me.                                         

================================
Mining Plaza            
================================
Energy Tank:Using the Echo Visor, shoot down 3 Sonic Transmitters to open a 
shutter. Screw Attack to this small opening with the Energy Tank.          

Flip on your Echo Visor and you should see 3 Sonic Tranmitters strewn all  
around the room transmitting...sonic stuff near the center of the room.   
By destroying each one, you raise a solar panel on a nearby pole to the very
top. By raising all three (by, of course, destroying all 3 transmitters),  
you will cause a powerful ray of sunlight to shine on a nearby gate which  
will open revealing an ENERGY TANK. Use the Screw Attack to reach the Tank.
The opening is VERY small and leaves little room for error with the Screw  
Attack. You may fail several times so be careful. Once done exit out the   
door at the bottom of the room.                                            

================================
Plaza Access            
================================
Head through the room.                                                     

================================
Transport to Temple Grounds            
================================
We won't be coming back to Agon Wastes for a while....and only then its    
really just for the Sky Temple Key. Head up the elevator.

================================
Transport to Agon Wastes            
================================
Just head out the door right infront of you.                               

================================
Agon Transport Access            
================================
A simple hallway with cool scenery. There's no time to waste-head for the  
other door.                                                                 

================================
Industrial Site            
================================
Head up the few ledges to the right and go through the door there. Ignore all
Dark Splinters as they are no threat.                                      

================================
Collapsed Tunnel            
================================
Just roll through the tunnel and go out the next door.                      

================================
Temple Assembly Site            
================================
Head to the right and use the giant crate as a stepping stone to reach the  
nearby door.                                                               

================================
Dynamo Chamber            
================================
Power Bomb Expansion:Use a Power Bomb to blast away the gate, and another on
the walls to reveal the Expansion.                                         

Use a Power Bomb on the Federation Gate to destroy it, then head forwards  
towards to next gate. Look to the right to find a cracked Bendenzium wall.  
Destroy it with a Power Bomb to reveal a POWER BOMB EXPANSION. Head back to 
the Temple Assembly Site.                                                  

================================
Temple Assembly Site            
================================
Head to the right and head through the door over there.                    

================================
Temple Transport B            
================================
Head up the elevator shaft.                                                 

================================
Temple Transport B            
================================
We won't be in the Great Temple for long (as if we ever are). Simply head  
out the door ahead of you.                                                 

================================
Transport B Access            
================================
Missile Expansion:Through a tunnel. Entrance on left wall.                 

Head about halfway through the room and look to the left. You should see a  
small opening on the wall. Morph Ball into it and Bomb Jump onto the ledge. 
Roll through the tunnel and grab the MISSILE EXPANSION at the end (as well 
as to be dropped back down to where you just were). Head to the Temple    
Sanctuary now.                                                             

================================
Temple Sanctuary            
================================
Head to the center of the room, head left and go through the door once you  
reach it.                                                                   

================================
Controller Transport            
================================
While you wait for the elevator, here's a riddle:a pair of scissors are   
smashing a TV set. There's something wrong with that sentence...but can you
find it?                                                                    

================================
Main Energy Controller            
================================
Enter the room and U-Mos will be standing near the Main Energy Controller,  
looking at the energy you have obtained. He will thank you for restoring  
the energy back to Aether. There is just one slight problem. There is still
one little ball of energy remaining. It just so happens that it is in the  
Sky Temple, guarded by the ruler of the Ing. If you were to obtain this last
bit of energy, peace will be completely restored on Aether and Dark Aether
will exist no longer. U-Mos will go on to explain that you need the 9 Sky   
Temple Keys (Of which we already have 2) to open the gateway to the Sky   
Temple. The Keys were strewn all around Dark Aether. In order to help aid  
you on your quest, U-Mos presents you with the Light Suit. Walk into the  
icon once the cutscene ends.                                                

The Light Suit has excellant effects at this point of the game (Just like  
the Phazon Suit in the original-by this point of the game its not that     
useful...). All the effects of Dark Aether will harm you no longer. You take
no damage there (And visibility has been increased a little). Also, Dark   
Waters no longer harm you. Infact, they are now treated like normal water.  
Also, you may have seen yellow beams of light along your journey. Samus can
now ride the light to whereever it leads to. This is key for several       
Expansion's we have left to get. As an added bonus, a transportation system
has been created between the Energy Controllers. By stepping in the symbol 
where the Energy Controller once was, you can teleport to any other Energy  
Controller room on Aether. Very useful. In fact, let's use it right now.   
Teleport to Torvus Bog.

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

================================
Torvus Energy Controller            
================================
No, that wasn't a test to show you that I'm not kidding. We got some business
here to do. Head out the door.                                              

================================
Controller Access            
================================
Answer to above riddle:Both objects (pair o' scissors, TV set) suggest there
is more than 1 object there. Of course, there isn't. A TV set is just a TV.
A pair of scissors is just 1 scissor...thingy. Yeah. o_O Don't you dare click
the "Back" button!                                                         

================================
Torvus Temple            
================================
Jump allllll the way down to the middle of the Temple, head down the        
elevator, and head left through the blue door.                             

================================
Underground Tunnel            
================================
A short room. Head down the passageway, dodgin the Seedbursters then roll  
down the next straightaway and out the nearby Light door.                  

================================
Torvus Grove            
================================
Missile Expansion:Destroy the bases of the tree to reveal this Expansion.   

Turn on your Scan Visor and you will reveal 2 weak points on the tree's base.
Use a Power Bomb on both of these locations and the tree will fall over. It
will break some of the wall away, revealing a MISSILE EXPANSION yours for the
taking. Go ahead and grab it, then exit out the only blue door in the room. 

================================
Meditation Vista            
================================
Energy Tank:Across the gap is a moving platform. Get on it and you will be  
taken to the Tank.                                                         

Across the long gap infront of you is a moving platform (wait a few seconds 
and you should eventually see it.). You need to use the Screw Attack to    
reach the platform. Trust me, your gonna miss with bad timing, over shoot, 
and undershoot over and over again. Hopefully you still have some Energy to 
spare ;) Once you reach the platform, it will move over to the ENERGY TANK 
which you can easily obtain. Screw Attack right back over to the main       
platform and use the Portal there.                                         

================================
Gloom Vista            
================================
No tricks here, just exit the room.                                        

================================
Polluted Mire            
================================
Ignore the Hunter Ing in the room and climb the base of the tree, and then 
circle around to the top of the room. Exit through the Dark door there.   

================================
Dark Falls            
================================
There's a Save Station in here. You haven't seen one in a while and it would
be disaterous if something bad happened. Save your game of course, and head
out the door at the top of the room.                                       

================================
Dark Forgotten Bridge            
================================
Drop off the platform your on and head through the only Power Bomb door that
is down here.                                                              

================================
Putrid Alcove            
================================
Power Bomb Expansion:Break the Power Bomb wall near the Dark Phlogus.      

Head into the room and you will see a Dark Phlogus soon enough. Stay near the
outer edge of the wall and head just right of him. Break the wall with a   
Power Bomb to reveal a POWER BOMB EXPANSION. Now head out the other Power   
Bomb door in the room.                                                    

================================
Poisoned Bog            
================================
Sky Temple Key:Its hidden inside another Flying Ing Cache. Its under the dark
waters.                                                                   

Several Hunter Ing are in this room. Use an Annhilator shot on the nearby   
Beacon to make it Super so the Hunter's commit suicide into it. Once they are
out of the way, jump into the dark waters. It no longer hurts you. Infact it
is now trated like normal water but with crappy vision. Yay crappy vision!  
Look around for a small alcove under the water which leads deeper into it.  
Flip on your Dark Visor as you explore down here and you should see the    
Flying Ing Cache. Destroy it of course and obtain the Sky Temple Key that is
released from it.                                                          

There is nothing else of intrest in this dead end room. Exit out the door you
used to get in here.                                                       

================================
Putrid Alcove            
================================
You can always walk around the Dark Phlogus easily seeing as the water can't
hurt you...exit out the next door.                                         

================================
Dark Forgotten Bridge            
================================
Use the tall mushrooms on the other side of the room to reach the Portal. Use
it once you have reached its ledge.                                        

================================
Forgotten Bridge            
================================
Back in Light Aether, and we will be staying here for quite some time. Near 
the Portal and to the left you should see a ledge slightly higher than the 
Portal's ledge. You can easily reach it from here. Get on it, jump up to   
the higher platform, then head down the hallway to the right and through the
door at the end.                                                           

================================
Plaza Access            
================================
Simply roll through this room to the other side. If there are barriers     
blocking the way, you haven't been following my FAQ at and earlier point.   
Follow the pathway around to the Bomb Slots and make them re-aligned giving
you access to the other side. There will be a revealed hole afterwards     
containing a MISSILE EXPANSION (If you've been following my FAQ, you have 
already gotten it). At any rate, head through the next door.               

================================
Torvus Plaza            
================================
Energy Tank:Go through the most grueling Spider Ball Track ever created. Its
horrid. But worth it in the end.                                           

Two Dark Pirate Commando's will attack you as you enter the room. ALL enemies
MUST be killed in this room if you want a chance to get to the end of the  
Spider Ball Track. Kill the Commando's with a charged Dark Beam shot followed
by a Missile. There's 1 last enemy in this room-a Sporb. You, as you should
know, can't kill them unless their main body is revealed. It will be shortly
however. Now jump down into the monster half-pipe. Its tall. Really really 
tall. Hold R the hold time as we will be needing to Boost onto a Spider Ball
Track on the right side of the half-pipe (The left end just keeps extending 
upwards. Really high.). Eventually after some grueling Boosting you should 
eventually make it onto the Track. Simply head along it at first, Bomb     
Jumping or releasing you grip to fall to the next part of Track when       
neccessary. Eventually you will hear the Sporb nearby come out and it will 
start attacking you. Drop off the edge, look up, and pop in a few Missiles  
to destroy it. Get all the way back up to the point where it first started 
to attack you.                                                            

At the point your previously were you should have encountered, or be near 
moving Spider Ball Tracks. Little bits of Track or placed on moving turbines.
Time your jumps accordingly! After a few moving Tracks, you will have to   
carefull cross a bridge and you will then be near an assload of moving     
Spider Ball Tracks. Or at least for half a second you will be. A common    
camera glitch in this room sometimes flips BEHIND the Tracks. The only thing
you can see is the back of everything, which is no help. This thing is total
hell if you can't see crap. However, like all glitches there is a cure...or
at least a prevention. Leave the room (If the glitch happens that is. If   
the camera never shifts position your fine), and go 2 rooms away then return
to Torvus Plaza. You will need to kill the enemies again. Get back to the  
point where the glitch happens. If it continues to happen, reset your      
Gamecube and just keep retrying this process until it doesn't happen.     
Eventually it won't happen.                                                

Anyways, one you reach the very end of the Spider Ball Track (IF you ever do)
you will bear a Kinetic Orb Cannon. Get inside to be shot across the room to
a small platform with the ENERGY TANK on it. Grab it and (finally) leave   
this forsaken room.                                                        

================================
Plaza Access            
================================
Simply roll across the several bridge to the other side of the room, then  
head out the door.                                                        

================================
Forgotten Bridge            
================================
Head straight along the path until you reach the split. Head left and jump 
all the way over to the main bridge. Head right along the bridge and head  
through the door at the end.                                               

================================
Abandoned Worksite            
================================
You are able to use the Screw Attack to reach the ledge across the gap easily
so do that. Roll through the tunnel there, and fall off the ledge and      
continue out the next door.                                                

================================
Great Bridge            
================================
Power Bomb Expansion:Use a Power Bomb to break some nearby rocks, revealing 
a tunnel. The Expansion is in there.                                       

Use the Screw Attack (or the nearby Kinetic Orb Cannon) to get ontop of the 
bridge, then head left to a dead end. Some Bendenzium rocks are nearby, which
can be broken with a Power Bomb. Break them to reveal a tunnel. In the middle
of it lies a POWER BOMB EXPANSION. Get out of the tunnel, back on the bridge,
and fall off of it, and take the blue door under it.                      

================================
Temple Access            
================================
Simply roll through to the other side of the room. Use Bomb Jumps whenever 
you need to.                                                               

================================
Torvus Temple            
================================
Head around the elevator and jump up into the red area of the lower Temple. 
Roll through the tunnel and head out the door.                             

================================
Underground Transport            
================================
We're heading right back to lower Torvus. Head down the elevator then exit 
out the door infront of you.                                               

================================
Hydrodynamo Station            
================================
Using the spinning platforms around the center collumn, reach the door at the
top of the room.                                                            

================================
Save Station B            
================================
About time we find a Save Station! You won't be seeing another one for..quite
a while so Save now and exit.                                              

================================
Hydrodynamo Station            
================================
Jump all the way down to the very bottom of the room and go through the door
that is down there.                                                        

================================
Hydrodynamo Shaft            
================================
Head down the spiral staircase. At the bottom are a ton of weak enemies. Use
the to refill your Ammo, Energy, and Missiles if your low on any of them and
proceed out the door here.                                                

================================
Main Hydrochamber            
================================
Keep heading straight and fall off the platform. Keep going straight and   
through an opening to find some Spider Ball Tracks. They lead up to a Portal.
Use the Portal.                                                            

================================
Undertemple            
================================
Missile Expansion:Use the Wall Jump Surfaces right near the Portal to find  
this Expansion.                                                             

Jump off of the ledge right infront of you and look right at some Wall Jump 
Surfaces. You know what to do. Use several Wall Jump's with the Screw Attack
to reach a high ledge with a MISSILE EXPANSION on it. Jump back down and head
into the main area of the room. Use the Spider Ball Tracks strewn all over  
the room to reach the very top of the room. Jump up the ledge and head     
through the only door here.                                                

================================
Undertemple Access            
================================
There are a ton of Darkling Tentacles in this room, which block many stairs
up the spiral staircase. Stun them all, and work your way (slowly) to the  
top door of the room.                                                     

================================
Undertemple Shaft            
================================
There are three doors in the middle area of this room (where you are now).  
Swing around with the Grapple Beam twice on either side and head through the
door on the ledge.                                                         

================================
Sacrificial Chamber Tunnel            
================================
Simply run through to the next room. Venom Weed is in this room, so shoot it
to make it dissappear for a short time.                                   

================================
Sacrificial Chamber            
================================
Head to the right and use a Power Bomb on the Bendenzium frame surrounding 
the nearby Dark door. If you have no Power Bomb Ammo, the previous room had
a ton of storage containers which may spew the Ammo. Head through the Dark  
door once your able to.                                                    

================================
Undertransit Two            
================================
Nothing special in this room. Just enter the Cannon to be shot into the    
Transit, where all you need to do next is simply roll out to the other side,
and out the door there.                                                   

================================
Dungeon             
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Watchdrone

Sky Temple Key:Under the dark waters. Shoot the Light Beacons to clear a  
path to the Flying Ing Cache.                                              

Ignore the Dark Grenchlers in the room and jump into the dark water. Look  
around for the path and follow it to a hole guraded by a Watchdrone. These
guys are invulnerable to everything but have no attacks of their own, aside
from just blocking your way. Look up to find a Light Beacon. Shoot it and  
the Watchdrone will move out of the light, revealing the pathway. Roll under
the hole and repeat the process with a second Watchdrone to reach the end of
the path. Flip on your Dark Visor and the rest should be pretty obvious from
here. Grab the Sky Temple Key. We're halfway there! Get out of the water and
use the nearby Portal to get out of here.                                  

================================
Catacombs            
================================
There is an Annhilator door to your left. Head over to it, blast it open and
head through :)                                                             

================================
Transit Tunnel South            
================================
Missile Expansion:Somewhere inside this giant maze. Using lotsa well timed 
Bomb Jumps you can reach it.                                               

Hop inside the Cannon to be shot into the main part of the Transit. This   
maze is much different than any other Transit...and its quite complicated.
Move over to he first Bomb Slot that is right near where you start off.    
Activating it will switch around the current nearby. Using the new current,
Bomb Jump up to the top-left corner of the room. The thing is, the current 
lowers the gravity for Bomb Jump's. This meaning you shoot up really fast  
but fall down slowly. You need to time the second Bomb correctly to be shot 
to the top (and again to reach the second Bomb Slot). This switches another 
current. Head over to the new current and reach the top of it, and keep   
heading right. Using an upwards current to reach a third Bomb Slot. This   
starts a timer for a new current right next to the Bomb Slot. Quickly Bomb 
Jump to the top of the shaft the upwards current is now in to obtain a   
MISSILE EXPANSION. Fall back out to the bottom of the room and head out the
right Cannon, and out the door nearby afterwards.                         

================================
Gathering Hall            
================================
There is nothing of intrest in this room aside from a few Grenchler's. Use  
the door at the other side of the room.                                    

================================
Transit Tunnel West            
================================
Hop inside the Cannon to be shot into the Transit. Break a block on the    
ground to have access to the Bomb Slot, which reverses the fan's direction 
allowing you to reach the other side of the room and the other Cannon. Use 
the door nearby the Cannon once you exit.                                  

================================
Training Chamber            
================================
Missile Expansion:By using the Bomb Slot on the statue, you will reveal a  
Power Bomb door...and this Expansion.                                      

There are several Dark Blogg's in the room, and they are a pain in the ass 
when you need to reach the top of the room. Using the Gravity Boost, try to 
reach the ledge underwater near the only blue door in the room. If you are 
having trouble whether its you can't make it or the Dark Blogg's, just keep
trying (And kill the Dark Blogg's if they pester you). Once you reach the 
blue door, stay on the platform and turn around. A Bomb Slot on a faraway  
platform should easily be seen. Use the Screw Attack to easily reach this 
platform. Bomb the slot which will move ther giant statue back a little,  
revealing a Power Bomb door and a MISSILE EXPANSION in the water. Jump down
to get it, and use the nearby Spider Ball Tracks to reach a Power Bomb    
door. Go through it.                                                       

================================
Fortress Transport Access            
================================
Simply get on the moving platforms and ride them to the other side of the 
room, jumping when neccessary. There's a Blogg in the water so avoid      
falling into it.                                                          

================================
Transport to Sanctuary Fortress            
================================
Activate the nearby Scan Console to activate the elevator, then simply step
in it to ride back to Sanctuary Fortress.

Transport to Torvus Bog            
================================
Head out the Power Bomb door infront of you.                               

================================
Torvus Transport Access            
================================
Several Octopedes are annoying in this room. Take them out from a distance 
to avoid their self-destruction when they are detached, and continue through
the Power Bomb door at the end.                                            

================================
Main Research            
================================
Simply head across the room to the Spider Ball Track, and ride up to the top
to reach a blue door. Go through it.                                       

================================
Transit Station            
================================
There are several Rezbit's in this room. They won't appear unless you get   
close to them. Quickly run through this room and out the next door.       

================================
Reactor Core            
================================
Quickly kill the Rezbit infront of you before it deals too much damage, then
run around the giant tube infrotn of you to the other side of the room and 
out the blue door there.                                                   

================================
Minigyro Chamber            
================================
Get into the nearby tunnel on your left and roll through to the other side.
Boost through the Gyro quickly because the Harmony drones are attacking you 
the whole time.                                                          

================================
Hall of Combat Mastery            
================================
Go straight ahead and use the Spider Ball Track as a shortcut to easily reach
the other side of the room. Head right, and jump over to the Portal and    
use it.

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

================================
Culling Chamber            
================================
Jump through the hole infront of you, then use Spider Ball Track to the left
of you to reach a door quickly. Its about time we got another Sky Temple   
Key don't you think?                                                       

================================
Unseen Way            
================================
Flip on your Dark Visor to see a platform allowing you to reach the door on
the other side of the gap. Or take the easy way out and use the Screw Attack.
Whichever way you prefer.                                                 

================================
Hive Reactor            
================================
Jump allllll the way down to the very bottom of the room. A Dark Ingsmasher 
will attack you down here, but you can ignore him. Head to the right, down 
the passage way and through the door.                                      

================================
Save Station 1            
================================
Finally we see another Save Station. Its wise to Save now-there's a lot more
left in this Mission. Exit once done.                                      

================================
Hive Reactor            
================================
Keep heading forwards until you see a door on the left. Head through it (Or
straight ahead for an Ammo Station).                                        

================================
Hive Reactor Access            
================================
Use an Annhilator shot on the Light Beacon infron of you to clear the gap of
all the Nightbarbs. If you have a hard time hitting just the Beacon, then use
a Light Beam shot on it. The effect will be just the same. Head through now
to the other door in the room.                                              

================================
Entrance Defense Hall            
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Ing Larva Swarm

Ladadada....simple boring room with a lot of turns in it. Near the end of  
the room you will see a ton of small black blobs on the ceiling. These are 
Ing Larva (Scan it of course). They pose no threat so you can easily ignore
them. Head through the door.                                               

================================
Hive Entrance            
================================
Sky Temple Key:Top o' da room.                                            

Use the Screw Attack to get all the way across the giant gap (which seems  
even longer than its Light Aether counterpart). Use the tower of light here
to reach the top of the room. Use the Screw Attack again to get all the way
across the gap again and onto another high platform. The Flying Ing Cache 
is right here and you should now what to do. Nearby is a pillar of red light.
Whatever you do, DON'T go in it. Red light hurts you. Really fast. Its like
Dark Aether with the Varia Suit on steriods. Umm..anyways head back through
the only door in the room.                                                

================================
Entrance Defense Hall            
================================
Nothing much of intrest in this room besides the tiny Ing. Just head through
the door on the other side of the room.                                    

================================
Hive Reactor Entrance            
================================
Hit the Light Beacon with the Light Beam once more to kill most of the     
Nightbarb's, allowing easy access to the other door in the room.          

================================
Hive Reactor            
================================
Head into the center area and head right, and quickly start climbing the   
platforms around the room. The Dark Ingsmasher may make you pee your pants
as its constantly slamming its fists into the ground, making the screen    
shake. Its scary really. Like your being chased. Creepy. Head out the door
at the top of the room.                                                    

================================
Unseen Way            
================================
Once more, use the Screw Attack to easily cross the gap infront of you, then
use the door there to the next room.                                      

================================
Culling Chamber            
================================
Use the Spider Ball Track infront of you to easily reach the other side of 
the room. Head across the gap to the right and activate the Portal device 
then head through the Portal.

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

================================
Hall of Combat Mastery            
================================
Jump through the gap ONCE AGAIN and use the Spider Ball Track AGAIN to reach
the other side of the room. Then use the door (again) to leave this room   
(for the last time :)  )                                                   

================================
Minigyro Chamber            
================================
Using the tunnel on your left, roll through the gyro chamber and exit out 
the door on the other side of the room.                                    

================================
Reactor Core            
================================
Drop down to the very bottom floor, and take a right and head down the     
hallway, and through the door at the end.                                   

================================
Sanctuary Map Station            
================================
Missile Expansion:Use the light...                                         

Head down the ramp and turn around. If you haven't seen it already, there is
a light behind you. Head up it to be in a small alcove with a MISSILE      
EXPANSION in it. Head back down the light, head back up the ramp and back  
out the door once more.                                                    

================================
Reactor Core            
================================
Finally, it is time we left Sanctuary Fortress for good. Head down the    
hallway and take the first door on your right.                            

================================
Reactor Access            
================================
Just quickly run through the room and go out the door before the Rezbit    
causes too much damage to you.                                              

================================
Power Junction            
================================
Just get into Morph Ball mode and Boost through the room. The Diligence    
drones don't do much damage.                                              

================================
Sanctuary Entrance            
================================
Use the Screw Attack to reach the other side of the room. Its a long distance
away so you will need to time each Screw so you get the most distance out of
it. If you can't make it, the Spider Ball Tracks will always be there, ready
to be used.                                                                

================================
Temple Transport Access            
================================
Just head through to the next door.                                       

================================
Transport to Temple Grounds            
================================
Goodbye Fortress. So sad we won't be coming here again (Or course, you can 
always come back out of freewill). Head up the elevator.

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

================================
Transport to Sancuary Fortress            
================================
Head out the door infront of you...                                        

================================
Fortress Transport Access            
================================
Energy Tank:At the top of the beam of light.                              

A Luminoth Turret will almost immediately attack you as you enter the room.
Destroy it from a distance then continue forwards, and enter the beam of    
light. At the top you will find an ENERGY TANK, and if you've been following
the Walkthrough that should be your last, 14th one. From here just head back
down the light and continue through the room, running past the second turret
along the way and out the other door.                                     

================================
GFMC Compound            
================================
Head across the room and exit out the blue door on the other side. Grab the
Missile Expansion ontop of the Federation ship if you haven't done so     
already.                                                                  

================================
Trooper Security Station            
================================
Use a Power Bomb on the security gate infront of you to destroy it, then   
proceed through the rest of the room.                                      

================================
Communication Area            
================================
Just follow along the path through the room. There's a small glass hole that
when broken with a Bomb reveals a Missile Expansion if you missed it      
earlier. Also, the door at the top of the room leads to an Expanion as well.
Get them if you have yet to.                                              

================================
Dynamo Chamber            
================================
Use another Power Bomb on the fallen gate to destroy it, then proceed through
the room and out the door at the end of it.                                

================================
Temple Assembly Site            
================================
Head to the left and through the hallway until you reach the Portal on the 
left. We've used it before but if you haven't you will need to shoot a     
crystal with a Light Beam shot to reveal the Portal. In any case, just use
the Portal.                                                                

================================
Plain of Dark Worship            
================================
To the right of where you are there is a huge pile of Ingworms with a Missile
Expansion near them. By following this guide you should already have it, so
open the Seeker Missile door to the left.                                   

================================
Lake Access            
================================
There is a ton of Venom Weed in this room. Shoot it all away, then go through
once it is safe.

Sky Temple Key:Other side of the lake.                                     

Scan one of the large Ingclaws not spewing gases infront of you, then proceed
through the lake (Its about 2 inches deep, you won't sink in it). The Flying
Ing Cache is on the other side of the room and I hope by now you figured   
out what to do. Grab the sixth Sky Temple Key (or maybe fifth. I lost count)
and get out of this room.                                                  

================================
Lake Access            
================================
Once again a mountain of Venom Weed covers the ground. Kill it all as you  
make your way through the room again.                                      

================================
Plain of Dark Worship            
================================
Head for the right until you reach the Portal. Use it.                      

================================
Temple Assembly Site            
================================
Head for the right side of the room and use the door there, using the giant
crate as a bridge to reach the door.                                        

================================
Dynamo Chamber            
================================
There's nothing left to destroy so just head through to the other side.     

================================
Communications Area            
================================
There is still nothing else in this room. Pretty boring around here, eh? Just
head through the bottom level to the other door.                           

================================
Trooper Security Station            
================================
Just walk right through the room.                                          

================================
GFMC Compound            
================================
Enter the room then jump up to the ledge on the left. Use the door on that 
ledge.                                                                     

================================
Sacred Bridge            
================================
This is boring isn't it? Nothing of intrest in here besides the bridge. Just
jump over the gap and head through the door.                               

================================
Sacred Path            
================================
Head for the other side of the room, Space Jumping up ledges whenever you  
need to. At the other side of the room, turn around and jump on the far   
platform. From here you can easily jump to the nearby Portal. Activate the  
Portal then use it.                                                        

================================
Profane Path            
================================
Beam Ammo Expansion:The final Beam Ammo Expansion we need. Its behind an   
Echo Lock door. The combonation to unlock the door is right of door-far from
it, right of door-close to it, Echo Lock on the left, then right of door-far
from it.                                                                   

There are several Dark Pirate Commando's in the room. You can kill them or 
ignore their annoyance. Head for the Echo Door to the right of where you  
are. In order to unlock this door, you need to shoot the pedestals with the
Annhilator Beam in this following order:right of door-far from it, right of
door-close to it, Echo Lock on the left, then right of door-far from it.   
This will cause the door to open, revealing the last BEAM AMMO EXPANSION.  
You should be able to hold 250 of each Ammo now. Not bad. Head through the 
only blue door in the room.                                                

================================
Phazon Pit            
================================
You'll get a nice surprise when you need to Grapple across the pit. A Dark  
Tallon Metroid will quickly appear in view. Gives most people a heart attack
unless you know it was coming. Avoid it and quickly get through the door   
across the small pit.                                                      

================================
Phazon Grounds            
================================
Missile Expansion:Use the Screw Attack at the top left corner of the room to
reach a far off cove with the Expansion.                                   

You can opt to ignore all of the Dark Tallon Metroids in the room. And lemme
tell you-there's a lot. Head to the left and in the distance you should be 
able to see a ton of Tallon Metroids lining up a path to a distance cove. Use
the Screw Attack to get over there and claim the MISSILE EXPANSION. Screw   
Attack back over to land and head out the other blue door in the room.     

================================
Reliquary Access            
================================
From here on to the Sky Temple Key, there is nothing but Ingstorm's. Luckily,
the Light Suit prevents damage from them so just walk on through the room. 
Scan the Ingstorm if you didn't earlier.                                  

================================
Reliquary Grounds            
================================
There are a ton of Warrior Ing in this room. They rarely attack since there 
is little level ground for them to attack on. Just work your way up to the 
top door of the room.                                                     

================================
Ing Reliquary            
================================
Sky Temple Key:Bottom of the room.                                          

Simply jump off the ledge to the bottom of the room, flip on your Dark     
Visor and blast the Flying Ing Cache to bits. 7 Sky Temple Key's down, and 
only 2 more left to obtain. Head along the path on the edge of the room to 
reach the door then go through it.                                         

================================
Reliquary Grounds            
================================
Just jump off the ledge and make your way past the Warrior Ing to the only 
other door in the room.

================================
Phazon Pit            
================================
Avoid the Dark Tallon Metroid as you Grapple across the pit, and head through
the other door across the pit.                                             

================================
Profane Path            
================================
Head across to the other end of the room, jumping up the ledges when you need
to and ignoring the Dark Pirate Commando's. Turn around and jump over to the
Portal, activate it, then use it.                                         

================================
Sacred Path            
================================
Back in Light Aether for a little bit of time. Now jump over to the right and
head through the blue door over there.                                     

================================

================================
Transport A Access            
================================
Roll inside the hole on the left to finally reach another Save Station. You
will NOT be seeing one until right before the final boss so you better do so
now. Leave the room afterwards.                                           

================================
Temple Sanctuary            
================================
Just walk right across the room to the other side. All the poor Luminoth will
be saved soon....that's for sure.                                          

================================
Controller Transport

================================
Main Energy Controller

Its time to finish what we started in Agon Wastes. Exit the room via the  
only door here.                                                             

================================

Warning, Nuclear Missile Launched. *Super loud siren is heard* If only that
could happen...                                                            

================================
Agon Temple

================================
Security Station B

Jump into the dark water. There is a POWER BOMB EXPANSION down here, but it 
will take some searching to find because its hard to see down here.        
Eventually you will find it. Once you have, just get out of the water and   
head back out the Light door.

up the Flying Ing Cache to claim the 8th Sky Temple Key. Get out of the water

door. Blast them to reveal the Expansion.                                 

Head to the right and along the room until you reach a black door (and where
a Hunter Ing will attack you). Flip on the Dark Visor to see some Seeker   
Missile targets on the door. Blast them all to lower the door and to reveal
the final MISSILE EXPANSION of the game. Yay. Now head to the right and   
through the door there.

Jump into the middle of the room and shoot the Beacon with an Annhilator   
shot to destroy all the Warrior Ing in the room. The flip on the Dark Visor
and obtain the final, 9th, nuave (Spanish for 9), 8 +1, whatever Sky Temple
Key. Leave the room after this.                                       

================================
Shrine Access

                   ~Mission 22:Deja Vu in "Prime Time"~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission Difficulty:*****/*****
Mission Objective:All of our hard work has come down to this. You must fight
Emperor Ing and defeat him to claim the last bit of Energy on Dark Aether. 
Hopefully you've remembered your first conversation with U-Mos...something 
about how if one side has no Energy they became unstable? You must escape 
Dark Aether before it is wiped form existance.                            

================================
Sky Temple Energy Controller            
================================
Use the nearby platforms to reach the upper area of the room, and to find a 
Save Station. No **** you should use it. Use the Screw Attack to reach the 
door on the other side of the room.                                        

================================
Sanctum Access            
================================
Use the Wall Jump Surface's to reach the top of the room. Might as well tell
you now that if you were going for 100% Scans, you should have 96% Scans   
before going into the final boss. Just saying.                              

================================
Sanctum            
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Emperor Ing Body
Logbook Creatures Scan:Emperor Ing Head
Logbook Creatures Scan:Emperor Ing Eye
Logbook Creatures Scan:Emperor Ing Chrysalis
Logbook Creatures Scan:Mutated Emperor Ing

Enter the room and you'll see a giant shadow on the ground...and the final 
bit of Energy! But what's this? Some giant ass blob covers the Energy in its
mouth? As ugly as it may be, that is the Emperor Ing. Its final boss time!
Start off by Scanning its Head and Body. The trick to damaging it is the 
destroy all of the tentacles it has, then that will expose its Eye (Scan it
of course). There are little openings on it which you can use to attack it.
But I'm getting ahead of myself. Rush over to one of the corners of the room
and stand on one of the circles there. Now, you can Lock-On to the flailing
tentacles, but your shots hit 1/50 times. Its best to use the Annhilator Beam
to shoot away the tentacles. Since it homes in easily and quickly its very 
efficient at doing the job. Once all of its tentcles have been destroyed, its
Eye will be revealed for about 15 seconds. Unload whatever you have into its
Eye during this time. Only attacks that directly hit the Eye and not the   
sheild it has will damage it. The openings of the shield occasionally shoot 
a powerful laser at you, which makes you unable to shoot for about 5 seconds.
Super Missiles are the most powerful weapon you have against Emperor Ing, but
they are slightly harder to hit him with than normal Charged Light Beam    
shots. But there is 1 weapon. A weapon of mass destruction that bring's    
Emperor Ing's life to critical in moments:The Sunburst. The odds of it     
connecting with the eye are about 1000:1 but it does make your life a whole 
lot easier. Anyways, after a short time the Eye will be covered by the head
again and you must repeat the process. Every time you do this more and more 
tentacles will appear. Normal Emperor Ing attacks consist of him spinning 
his tentacles around the room, shooting a blast of dark energy at you (Use
the Boost Ball to avoid it) and opening Light Portals to hurt you badly.  
Of course, this was just phase one...                                     

After defeating Emperor Ing, he will use his head as a covering for his body,
and trandform himself into an energy regenerating Chrysalis. Poisonous gas 
will appear in the arena now. Quckly Scan Emperor Ing, then use the Spider  
Ball to cling onto the Chrysalis (That's a fun work to say...). The trick 
here is that there are 11 holes on the Chrysalis, and right before         
tentacles pop out of holes (dark bubbles will emit from the holes before   
that happens) you want to place a Bomb to destroy the tentacle. Simply     
destroy all 11 tentacles. To make your life easier, you can use your Power 
Bombs. You won't be needing them later. Also, Inglet's will attack you often
(But will stay in puddle form). Kill them. A lot. Restore your Energy and  
Ammo.                                                                      

After destroying all 11 tentacles, Emperor Ing will explode form the       
Chrysalsis and has mutated into a giant Warrior Ing. Scan the Mutated Emperor
Ing and prepare for a hard fight. Now the object here is to hit the heart  
of Mutated Emperor Ing with a few Super Missiles. This will get the heart 
to change from orange to either White or Purple. If it is White, unleash all
of your Entangler shots while you still got them (He won't be frozen or   
anything, but its powerful enough). If it is Purple, unleash an assload of 
Annhilator shots (NOT charged). He has a ton of health, and like to pummel
you with many attacks. He can create a ton of Portals which have a ton of 
tentacles pop out and flail at you. He can also jump really high in an    
attempt to land right on you. He can also fling his arms at you. Basically,
he is just a mega-powerful Warrior Ing with a different weak spot. Now, if
you run out of Ammo, occasionally a ton of enemies (Which are un-scannable)
swarm around Mutated Emperor Ing. Shots of the Power Beam make them spew  
Ammo everywhere. Use them to your advantage. If your still having mega    
trouble, you ould always try the lucky way out. That would be to Screw   
Attack his heart. Trust me, it may take a thousand attempts and nothing   
will happen. But if you do connect and with the full force of the Screw,  
Mutated Emperor Ing will go down instantly (Or at least lose a ton of    
health). Use whatever method suits you best.                             

Once you have finally defeated Emperor Ing, he will explode, leaving the  
last of the precious Energy (That once belonged to Aether) behind. Samus  
will suck it all up into her suit. Now, time for a history pop quiz. What 
happens if one of the dimensions has no Energy to support it? If you guessed
"The dimension will collapse and cease to exist" then your right! Wait...  
that's bad! We're still on Dark Aether! Platforms will rise above the ground
allowing you to Screw Attack over to the door in the room. An 8 minute     
self-desctruct timer will be active, counting down the precious seconds you
have before the planet gives way. We've gotta get out of here! Well, GET  
OUT OF HERE NOW!                                                           

================================
Sanctum Access            
================================
Hurry! Jump down the corridor shaft and quickly go through the door behind 
joo!!!!                                

================================
Sky Temple Energy Controller            
================================
The Save Station is inactive so don't bother. If you've gone fast (and why  
shouldn't you have?) there should be around 7:30:00 left on the clock. Head
down the beam of light!                                                    

================================
Sky Temple Gateway            
================================
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Samus 3
Logbook Creatures Scan:Dark Samus 4

It was obvious you two would have to fight each other one last time. A battle
to the death. But a restricted one nonetheless. You've got a self-destruct
time breathing down your neck. With awesome Escape music, its time to finish
this once and for all!                                                    

(Also take of note that the Escape music is a remix of the Escape music from
Metroid Zero Mission. Isn't that cool?)                                   

Start off by Scanning Dark Samus, and then unloading several Super Missiles
into her. After dealing a little bit of damage, she will turn invisible. Your
Dark Visor is overloaded right now so resort to the Echo Visor. Hit Dark    
Samus with more of whatever you've got. Eventually she will become visible 
again and entrap herself inside a giant Phazon bubble.                    

Scan her again. If you've been Scanning everything you should have gotten 
the 100% Scans message as well as that the Boss Gallery has been unlocked. 
Now, in her Phazon bubble she is invincible to everything....except Phazon
itself. Only Phazon can penetrate her sheild and damage Dark Samus. Keep  
a Charge Beam (Normal Power Beam of course) always at the ready, and     
always stay Locked-On to her. She will constantly spew Phazon Missiles at you
which dish out major damage. Eventually she will spit out a ton of Phazon  
Particles, which you must collect with the Charge Beam. The Lock-On will  
automatically shift up to help you obtain these Particles. If one of them 
touches Samus, she will lose her charge and you will have wasted time. You 
only need about 4-5 Particles to change the Charge Beam to Blue. Unleash 
this at Dark Samus while still in here sheild to damage her, and she will 
come floating back down for a few seconds before resorting back to her     
Phazon bubble. DON'T shoot the Phazon Beam at Dark Samus when she isn't in 
her sheild or it will heal her. That's bad. Very bad. It just drags out the
fight in the end really....                                               

All you truly need to do is keep repeating this process until she is defeated
before the time expires. If you don't want to see the ending as I'm about
to describe it, please feel free not to. If you wanna know what happens,   
read on.         

Dark Samus will vanish in her usual particly way, and then Dark Aether will
begin to shake violently as atop a huge cliff nearby a ton of Warrior Ing  
jump down at Samus, along with a ton of falling boulders. The violent shaking
has caused a giant wall of Phazon to collapse revealing....a Portal? Samus 
will rush over to the Portal and use it to escape Dark Aether. Just then, 
Dark Aether will be wiped from existance as your shown that is just vanishes
just like that. You will appear back inside the Main Energy Controller, as 
all of the Luminoth bow down in gratuity. Samus waves them off without a  
second glance and returns to her ship. If you obtained 75% or more items,  
Samus will take off her entire suit, revealing a sleak Metroid Zero Mission
version of Samus. Quite different from the Samus in Metroid Prime 1. Of    
course I'm sure most will agree that Samus looks like puke in 3-D. Meh.   
The credits will roll, blah blah blah, Save after your done. If you obtained
all 100% items, you'll see a cutscene showing Dark Samus reform in space. 
Ooooh! I smell Metroid Prime 3!

                           ~VII.Expansions Guide~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Don't feel like going through my Walkthrough and searching for that one last
Expansion you need for 100%? Never fear! My Expansion Guide will cover all 
the locations for every Expansion in the game from Missiles to Beam Ammo.  
I'll post a minor description on how to get the Expansion in each room     
that needs to be covered.                                                   

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       ~VII A.Missile Expansions~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
There are 50 Missile Expansions in the game (Including the Missile         
Launcher). 50*5=250? Aren't there a total of 255 Missiles in the game? Yes.
The Seeker Missile Combo counts as the 51st Missile Expansion. Intresting
isn't it?  I'll list what part of Aether the Expansion is in (Light or    
Dark), the World (Agon Wastes, Dark Torvus Bog, etc.) and the Room name for
easy refrence. Ready for many Missiles?                                    

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #1:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Hive Chamber A
==========================================================
Once you are able to come back to this room, do so by dropping off the ledge
in Hive Transport Access. You can do this once you have the Violet        
Translator. In this room you will find a Dark Missile Trooper. Its the only
one in the game so Scan it now. Kill him with whatever weapons you have. He
drops the Missile Expansion after the battle.                              

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #2:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Hive Chamber B
==========================================================
You are able to obtain this Expansion once you have the Morph Ball Bombs. 
Hive Chamber B happens to be the very room you lost most of your           
equipment....neat eh? In the room you will need to roll through a Morph Ball
tunnel to reach another are of the room. Right near the hole leading into  
the tunnel is a cracked block. Use a Bomb on it to expose a new tunnel. The 
Missile Expansion is at the end of it.                                     

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #3:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - GFMC Compound
==========================================================
This is the very first Missile Expansion you get in the game. Its in the  
yellow crate near the GFS Tyr. You need to see the cutscene in order to    
access the crate.                                                          

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #4:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - GFMC Compound
==========================================================
Once you have the Space Jump Boots, return to the GFMC Compound. The Missile
Expansion here is located on the top of the GFS Tyr. Use the ledge across  
form the ship as a ledge high enough the properly Space Jump to the ship, and
then walk over to the Expansion.                                           

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #5:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Communication Area
==========================================================
Jump onto the ledge just above the ground floor of the room. Look around  
for a small white piece of glass on the ground. Once you do, use a Morph   
Ball Bomb on it to reveal the Expansion.                                  

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #6:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Temple Assembly Site
==========================================================
Jump ontop of any of the ledge near the left side of the room (The side    
opposite of the giant crate). From here, you can use the Space Jump to reach
a ledge high on the wall that leads around most of the room. Once you reach
a tunnel, use the Morph Ball to reach the Missile Expansion at the very end
of it.                                                                      

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #7:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Transport to Agon Wastes
==========================================================
To the left of the elevator and cliff leading into the abyss, look for a   
small Luminoth webling. Shoot the large green plant to destroy the web,   
revealing the Missile Expansion.                                            

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #8:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Hall of the Honored Dead
==========================================================
Use the Boost Ball in the colored Spinners to destroy the glass surrounding 
the Seeker Missile Combo. This Combo has an additional effect-it adds 5    
Missiles to your count.                                                    

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #9:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mining Station A
==========================================================
On the bottom of the room you need to find a smalll cracked piece of wall  
composed of Benzium. Use a Power Bomb on this piece of wall to expose a    
Kinetic Orb Cannon. Using the Cannon, launch up onto some Spider Ball Tracks.
Use several Bomb Jumps, and release the tracks several times to work your 
way to a Missile Expansion.                                                

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #10:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Storage A
==========================================================
In Mining Station B you need to find a cracked wall composed of Benzium. 
Use a Power Bomb on this section of wall to reveal a door leading to Storage
A. The Expansion is right infront of you.                                  

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #11:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Portal Access A
==========================================================
This Missile Expansion is located just behind a dead Luminoth. In order to 
reach it easily, use the Kinetic Orb Cannon's on the side of the room leading
to the Portal Chamber and fall down the hole leading into the Expansion. Or
for a quicker route, on the Portal Chamber side just roll behind the Luminoth
and collect the Expansion.                                                  

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #12:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Command Center
==========================================================
The Missile Expansion is located under the flooring of the room-inside the 
Morph Ball maze. You can enter the maze from 2 different places. Either from
Command Center Access or the Command Center itself. Either way, head along 
the maze until you see a path branching out to the right. Follow it, and at 
the end just pick up the Expansion.                                         

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #13:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Sand Cache
==========================================================
There is an Amber Translator Door in Mining Station A. Scan it down then   
head through the revealed door, into Sand Cache. The Expansion is in the   
middle of the room.                                                        

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #14:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Transport Center
==========================================================
After your first excursion to Dark Agon Wastes, return to this room to be  
able to reach a Bomb Slot. Activating it will lower a nearby gate, allowing
access to the Missile Expansion.                                          

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #15:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Storage B
==========================================================
In Biostorage Station, there is a Dark door on the second floor of the room.
Head through this door into Storage B. The Missile Expansion is just sitting
infront of you for the easy taking.                                        

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #16:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Main Reactor
==========================================================
This Missile Expansion is a bit complicated, and tough to get. You need to 
head to the lower floor of the room and head towards the elevator. There are
two Spider Ball Tracks here. Take the one on the furthest right. At the top 
you will need to Boost onto a Spider Ball Track on a piece of machinery    
that is moving up and down. Time your Boost properly. The object here is to 
keep Boosting until you reach the other side of the room, where you can drop
off, Bomb a piece of glass, and retrieve the Missile Expansion. Falling will
result in you getting hurt by Phazon until you quickly roll out the nearby 
hole, and you will have to start over. It may take you a few tries so just 
keep being patient.                                                        

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #17:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Sand Processing
==========================================================
Destroy the two Space Pirate Turrets in the room, then use the Space Jump at
the top of the room to reach a tunnel on the right wall of the room, far  
away from the ledge. Roll through the tunnel and Scan the Scan Console there
to drain out all of the sand in the room. Now, simply walk into the now    
revealed Missile Expansion.                                               

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #18:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Ventilation Area A
==========================================================
Near the right side of the room you should see several platforms sticking   
out of the wall. Use several Double Bomb Jumps to reach the top of these   
platforms. Once you are at the very top of the last platform, roll to the   
left to claim the Missile Expansion there.                                 

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #19:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Storage C
==========================================================
In Bioenergy Production there is a Super Missile door at the top of the room.
You need to reach it via two paths. The easy one is using the ledge at the 
top of the room to simply Screw Attack over to the door. The other is rasing
all of the storage units to the top of the room, and using the Spider Ball 
Tracks to Boost over there. Either way, head through the door to Storage C 
and retrieve the Missile Expansion there.                                  

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #20:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Underground Tunnel
==========================================================
When you first enter the room from Torvus Temple, roll under the grating    
your standing on to earn the Missile Expansion.                            

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #21:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Forgotten Bridge
==========================================================
Use the Bomb Slot in Dark Forgotten Bridge on Dark Aether. This will rotate 
the bridge around in Forgotten Bridge, allowing you to cross it to the     
Missile Expansion on the other side.                                        

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #22:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Plaza Access
==========================================================
Enter this room via Forgotten Bridge. You need to roll through the tunnel. 
However, you will be blocked by several platforms as you go. You need to use
Bomb Jumps to move yourself around the tunnel and into Bomb Slots to move  
the platforms out of your way. Eventually you will reach the end of the   
maze and will roll through another tunnel, leading to a half-pipe. Boost   
up the left ramp to obtain the Missile Expansion here. Its a difficult half-
pipe, so take your time.                                                   

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #23:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Hydrodynamo Station
==========================================================
Once you have activate the first Scan Console in the room, you are able to 
reach the Seeker Missile door in the room. The Missile Expansion is right  
infront of the door, impossible to miss.                                    

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #24:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Portal Chamber
==========================================================
In the Dark Agon Wastes Portal Chamber room, roll over the hole at the top 
of the room to reach this Portal. Take it to be in the Light Aether version
of the Portal Chamber. The Missile Expansion will be right infront of your 
landing point of the Portal.                                               

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #25:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Abandoned Worksite
==========================================================
Use the Grapple Beam on the Forgotten Bridge side of the room to swing on 
over to another platform with the Expansion.                              

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #26:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Torvus Lagoon
==========================================================
You need the Gravity Boost to obtain this Expansion. Underwater, look for  
and area that heads down deeply. You will need to use the Gravity Boost to 
ride right over some Venom Weed underwater and soar into a ledge containing
the Missile Expansion.                                                      

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #27:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Path of Roots
==========================================================
Use the Grapple Beam near the above water door to swing on over to a platform
with the Missile Expansion on it.                                           

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #28:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Gathering Hall
==========================================================
Underwater, use a Power Bomb on the glass to allow you access to a small   
area underwater. Power Bomb this small area, and you will destroy a plug,  
effectively draining all of the water. A half-pipe is now revealed. Boost 
up both sides of the half-pipe to some Spider Ball Tracks. Each side leads 
to a Bomb Slot. Activate both Bomb Slots to deactivate a force sheild nearby
which contains the Expansion.                                              

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #29:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Torvus Grove
==========================================================
Use a Power Bomb on both weakened bases on the giant tree. This will cause 
the massive thing to fall over and destroy a nearby wall. The Missile      
Expansion here is then revealed.                                            

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #30:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Transit Tunnel South
==========================================================
Enter this room via Catacombs' Annihilator Beam door. Head into the Cannon 
to be shot into the tunnels. Head right and drop right into the Bomb Slot. 
Activate it, and you will switch around one of the currents in the room.   
Get onto the current that is now rushing up and Bomb Jump. You will rise    
very high. You need to perform a Double Bomb Jump to reach the top of the  
shaft so lay a second Bomb before you start floating back downwards. At the 
top, head to the left and Double Bomb Jump your way up a second shaft to a  
Bomb Slot. This will switch around a nearby current. Head over to the right 
and to the upwards current. Double Bomb Jump again to the top to reach      
another Bomb Slot. Activate it, and you will switch around one final current
nearby. Double Bomb jump up this last current and at the top you will earn 
the Missile Expansion in the room.                                         

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #31:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Training Chamber
==========================================================
Get onto the ledge infront of the only blue door in the room. Use the Screw 
Attack to reach a platform in the distance with a Bomb Slot on it. Once your
on the platform, activate the Bomb Slot. The large platform your on will   
move, revealing a Missile Expansion.                                       

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #32:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Dynamo Works
==========================================================
Once you beat the Spider Guardian you can obtain this Expansion. Roll back  
out of the tunnel and into the main area of the room once you grab the     
Spider Ball. Work your way around the Spider Ball Tracks until the path   
starts going up. At the top, Bomb Jump onto a small ledge and follow it into
a Missile Expansion.                                                        

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #33:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Hall of Combat    
Mastery
==========================================================
Use the Spider Ball Track in the middle of the room to put yourself into a 
huge Morph Ball maze. Just follow the pathway, and make a ton of Bomb      
Jumps whenever neccessary. Near the end, Bomb a block to be able to reach  
the Missile Expansion.                                                     

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #34:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Central Area     
Transport West
==========================================================
You need to be at the top of the room to get this Expansion. First off, look
to the left of the door for some holes near the wall. Roll down the leftern 
most hole. You'll then have three choices of path. Go right. At the next  
intersection, take another right. You will fall right into a Missile       
Expansion, and then be at the bottom of the room.                           

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #35:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Main Research
==========================================================
Near the Luminoth Lore Projector is a Spider Ball Track and a ton of      
moving machinery. Navigate yourself through the Spider Ball Tracks, Bomb 
Jumping and falling whenever you need to. Be careful-touch any piece of    
machinery and you will fall right off the tracks. At the end of the path is
the Missile Expansion.                                                     

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #36:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Sentinel's Path
==========================================================
There are several Mekenobits in this room. They are very hazardous and can 
easily kill you if you take too long while trying to obtain this Expansion,
so use the Seeker Missiles on their legs to destroy al of them. Now, near 
the middle of the room is an Echo Door. Flip on your Echo Visor and hit  
the nearby sound pedestals with the Annhilator Beam in this order:Right,  
Right, Left, Right. (The pedestal in the middle isn't used for this). This
will open up the Echo Door, leading into a small cavern that holds the     
Missile Expansion.                                                         

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #37:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Temple Access
==========================================================
Use a Charged Dark Beam shot followed by a Missile to destroy both of the   
annoying Rezbits in the room. Now, flip on the Dark Visor and look up     
above the door leading to the Temple. Destroy the red targets with the     
Seeker Missiles. This will activate a Kinetic Orb Cannon nearby. Get into it
to be blasted back up near the top of the room. There is a Sonic Transmitter
here. Destroy it. This will move a nearby platform back a little for a     
limited time. Quickly hop inside the Kinetic Orb Cannon to be blasted down a
pipe and under the flooring. Roll around to collect the Missile Expansion.  
Use the Spinner nearby to get out.                                         

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #38:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Sanctuary Map     
Station                                                                   
==========================================================
Head down the nearby ramps to the bottom of the room, then turn around to 
find a pillar of light. With the Light Suit, you can travel up this beam of
light. You'll find a Missile Expansion if you do.                          

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #39:Light Aether - Great Temple - Transport B Access
==========================================================
From Temple Sanctuary, head into the room and look at the left wall until
you find a small spot where you can roll into. Use several Bomb Jumps to   
work your way through the tunnel. At the very end of the path you will roll
right into a Missile Expansion.                                             

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #40:Light Aether - Great Temple - Transport A Access
==========================================================
Right near the Save Station is a piece of cracked wall made of Talloric    
Alloy. Use a Bomb on it to destroy the wall, revealing a path leading down 
to a Missile Expansion.                                                    

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #41:Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Ing Cache 4
==========================================================
You need to enter this room through the Dark door in Duelling Range. The   
Missile Expansion is located in a tricky place-its in a little hole right   
below the door.                                                            

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #42:Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Crossroads
==========================================================
In the Light Aether version of Crossroads (The room is Transport Center),  
use the half-pipe to reach a really high Portal. Use it, and the Missile   
Expansion will be right infront of you.                                    

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #43:Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Junction Site
==========================================================
Use the Spider Ball Track located near the middle of the room to reach a   
Bomb Slot. Activate it to switch around the platform below you, revealing a 
path to the Missile Expansion.                                              

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #44:Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Warrior's Walk
==========================================================
Look around on the floor to find some Phazon steam rising up. Place a Bomb 
on this piece of floor to destroy it. You should quickly roll into the Phazon
pit area, and to the end of it where a Missile Expansion lies. Quickly get 
back out of course!                                                        

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #45:Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Undertransit One
==========================================================
Hop right into the Cannon to be blasted into the undertransit tunnels. This 
is a bit tricky. It looks simple-just a room with many pipes below you. Well,
there are hidden holes unseeable. Fall down all the way to the bottom row. 
From here, head near the left end of the pipe, but about halfway left.      
Perform a Bomb Jump, and hold right in the air. You will enter a secret area
you probably didn't even knew existed. Keep heading right until you reach  
the Missile Expansion in the tubes.                                        

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #46:Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Undertemple
==========================================================
At the bottom room inside a little alcove is a Wall Jump Surface. Use the   
Screw Attack against this surface to climb to the top of it and claim the  
Missile Expansion at the top.                                              

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #47:Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Hazing Cliff
==========================================================
There are several Dark Tallon Metroid in this room so I suggest annhilating
them all before continuing. Head over to the other side of the room to find 
a Dark Diligence Drone. Their much like their Light counterparts only in   
order to kill them you need to use a Charged Light Beam shot. Kill both of 
them to find the Missile Expansion.                                        

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #48:Dark Aether - Ing Hive - Aerial Training Site
==========================================================
Right near the Portal is a Wall Jump Surface. Use the Screw Attack to reach 
the top of it, and the Missile Expansion there.                           

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #49:Dark Aether - Sky Temple Grounds - Plain of Dark     
Worship
==========================================================
Use the Portal in Temple Assembly Site to reach this room. The Missile    
Expansion is right of the Portal.                                          

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #50:Dark Aether - Sky Temple Grounds - Phazon Grounds
==========================================================
Ignore the Dark Tallon Metroid if you wish, then use the Screw Attack to    
reach the pillar across the huge gap. The Missile Expansion is waiting    
inside that pilar when you land.                                            

==========================================================
Missile Expansion #51:Dark Aether - Sky Temple Grounds - War Ritual Grounds
==========================================================
Near the huge collection of mutated Ingworms is a door. Flip on the Dark   
Visor to see several Seeker Targets. Destroy them all, and the door will   
reveal the final Missile Expansion.                                        

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            ~VII B.Energy Tanks~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ah yes....the all important Energy Tank. Without them you would die very   
fast in the game unless your highly experience and/or crazy/insane. There  
are only 14 Energy Tanks, and most Energy Tanks take a bit longer than any 
other Expansion to obtain.                                                  

==========================================================
Energy Tank #1:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Storage Cavern B
==========================================================
Access this room via the Missile door in Temple Assembly Site. The Energy  
Tank is sitting for you to take.                                            

==========================================================
Energy Tank #2:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Fortress Transport Access
==========================================================
Near the middle of the room you will find a bright yellow light shining    
down from the ceiling. With the Light Suit on you can travel up this small 
beam of light. You will then appear in a tiny room. Turn around to find an 
Energy Tank sitting near the wall.                                          

==========================================================
Energy Tank #3:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Windchamber Gateway
==========================================================
On one of the sides of Windchamber Gateway these is a Grappple Point. You  
can use the Grapple Beam (Or the Screw Attack) to swing over to a far away 
platform that holds an Energy Tank.                                        

==========================================================
Energy Tank #4:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mine Shaft
==========================================================
Head to Agon Temple and walk around the room until you find a Dark door.   
Head through it into Mine Shaft. Here, roll into the tunnels and move left 
and pass over the first sand block quickly. Now, kill the Pillbug nearby.  
Double Bomb Jump several times up the first few platforms your near. Once 
you reach the top of this area, hold left. You need to do this very quickly 
several times. First you wall fall down a sand block. By holding left you 
will move into a new area, where you will fall down more sand blocks. Here, 
you will be unseen as your inside the wall. Move a little bit over to the  
left but not all the way as you don't want to fall off the path. Bomb Jump 
up a level, then Bomb Jump again to the highest point here. Hold left and 
you will collect your Energy Tank.                                         

==========================================================
Energy Tank #5:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Bioenergy Production
==========================================================
Look at the map and head to the side of the room that has a Super Missile  
door on it. Now, there are many, many Scan Consoles here. For each "station"
the small Scanner on the left will raise one of the giant storage platforms,
and the one on the right will lower one of the giant storage platforms.    
Starting with the station furthest on the left, make 2 of the storage units
raised and keep one of them at the bottom. For the station in the middle,  
make one of the storage units raised and keep 2 at the bottom. For the final
station on the right, make all three storage units at the bottom level.   
This will create a stairway that leads right up to an Energy Tank. If the  
Scanners don't do anything, head to the other side of the room and Scan a  
Console there. This activates all of the platforms in the room if you hadn't
done so already.                                                            

==========================================================
Energy Tank #6:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mining Access
==========================================================
Roll into the middle of the room, and stop right above a sand block. Lay a  
Bomb here and the block will break. You'll fall into a Cannon and be shot   
up into an Energy Tank.                                                    

==========================================================
Energy Tank #7:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mining Plaza
==========================================================
Flip on your Echo Visor when your high in the room. There are three Sonic  
Transmitters sending waves towards solar panels. You need to disable all   
three locks. Doing so will make the solar panels rise, shining the sun onto 
a small hole in the distance. The cover raises, revealing an Energy Tank. 
You need to use the Screw Attack with extreme precision to reach the Energy 
Tank. You may fail many times.                                             

==========================================================
Energy Tank #8:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Torvus Plaza
==========================================================
There are several Dark Pirate Commandos in here. They will cause the utmost 
annoyance when attempting for this Energy Tank so be sure to kick their asses
with the Dark Visor (of course!). There is a half-pipe at the end of the room
so you want to head to it. Its a huge and tall half-pipe so you may       
experience some trouble. You want to head up the right side of the half-pipe
and grab hold of a Spider Ball Track, so be holding R most of the time. Once
your on the Tracks, continue along until you hear a Sporb starting to attack
you. Drop down to the ground an kill it. This is nearly impossible to do with
the Sporb attacking most of the time.                                      

Make your way back on the Spider Ball Tracks via the huge half-pipe again. 
Now just continue along the Tracks. There is now nothing stopping you. At 
least for a little while there won't be diddly squat stopping you. At some  
point past several small moving pieces of Track, you may encounter the    
annoyance of the camera going BEHIND the scenery, so all you can see is the 
backside of the Spider Ball course.                                        

This, of course, makes things nearly impossible. You can't see ANYTHING at 
all. Why would such a challenge be put in this game? Well...its not a     
challenge. More of a glitch. A very odd glitch. Its unknown as to what causes
it to happen or let alone WHY it happens. If the camera doesn't make it     
impossible to see, continue along the Tracks until you reach a Kinetic Orb 
Cannon, which when used will shoot you right into the Energy Tank in the  
room. If the glitch does happen, leave the room and go several rooms away 
and then come back. Its very likely the glitch will be fixed and you can with
ease get the Energy Tank. If it still occurs, reset the Gamecube and see the
results (you may need to reset several times). Eventually you will be able 
to see and you will eventually get that Tank. Or you could be like me first
time throgh the game-take the challenge of going through the course with the
camera glitch (Of course back then I didn't know it was a glitch bit I    
still won. I'm so good.)

==========================================================
Energy Tank #9:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Meditation Vista
==========================================================
Ignore the Portal. Head past it and across the large abyss you will        
eventually see a floating platform makes it way back and forth across some 
far away area in the distance. Use the Screw Attack to reach this platform.
Once your on it, it will move you right into the Energy Tank lying there.  
You are likely to fall. Many many times. Bring lots of Energy because you  
may be needing it...                                                       

==========================================================
Energy Tank #10:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Temple Access
==========================================================
You need to be in the upper path of this room, not the lower path. On the  
floor in the upper path there are several red circles on the ground. One  
of them is slightly cracked and smoking. Place a Bomb on this to fall down 
right into an Energy Tank.                                                 

==========================================================
Energy Tank #11:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Transit Tunnel East
==========================================================
In the first vertical tube on the left, use a Bomb Jump to easily reach the
Bomb Slot. Activate it. This activates a short timer on a current nearby.  
Head for the tube 3 down to the right of you. It has a huge upwards       
current of water. You need to do several well timed Bomb Jumps in order to 
make your way up this tube. Its difficult and you may fail several times. 
If this happens, just go activate the Bomb Slot again once the time expires.
Its very difficult, but after enough time you will learn the timing to reach
the high placed Energy Tank.                                               

==========================================================
Energy Tank #12:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Watch Station Access
==========================================================
Enter through the Light door from Watch Station and its just...impossible to
miss. Wow. Easy tank eh?                                                   

==========================================================
Energy Tank #13:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Reactor Core
==========================================================
There are a ton of Rezbits in the Reactor Core. You should destroy all of  
them as it will make your life a whole lot easier. Kill them with a Charged
Dark Beam blast followed by a Missile. Now, at the bottom of the room there
is a Kinetic Orb Cannon. Hop inside it to be shot up onto a ball of Spider 
Ball Track. Head up a ramp onto a smaller ball of Track. Roll ontop of a  
small red dot and use the Boost Ball to jump over to another ball. Keep   
repeating this process until you reach actual Spider Ball Track. Be warned,
though, that every other ball every few seconds becomes electrfied, making it
impossible to magnetically attack yourself to the ball. Be careful. Once your
on actual Track just roll right into an Energy Tank.                       

==========================================================
Energy Tank #14:Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Cache B
==========================================================
There is a Super Missile door below the main level of the Temple. You can get
this Energy Tank by going through that door before the Chykka battle or any 
time afterwards.                                                           

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                        ~VII C.Power Bomb Expansions~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Always have the need to unleash a gigantic exposion near many enemies? Your 
gonna need several Power Bomb Expansions to do it though. There are 8, giving
a total of 10 Power Bombs.                                                  

==========================================================
Power Bomb Expansion #1:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Dynamo Chamber
==========================================================
Use a Power Bomb to destroy the GF Gate, and proceed to the middle of the  
lower area. Place a Power Bomb on the cracked Benzium wall to destroy it,   
revealing a Power Bomb Expansion.                                          

==========================================================
Power Bomb Expansion #2:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Sandcanyon
==========================================================
Use the Screw Attack to travel halfway across the gap to the tiny platform 
in the middle of it all. Place a Power Bomb once you reach this structure. 
By doing so, you cause the giant pillar to collapse, revealing a Power Bomb
Expansion where it once was.                                               

==========================================================
Power Bomb Expansion #3:Light Aether - Torvus Bog - Great Bridge
==========================================================
Use the Kinetic Orb Cannon in the room to be blasted up to the bridge.     
Destroy the nearby Shriekbats then look around for a rock. Its made of     
Bendezium so you should know by now what to do. Roll through the tunnel to 
claim a Power Bomb Expansion.                                              

==========================================================
Power Bomb Expansion #4:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Fortress Entrance
==========================================================
Enter this room via Temple Transport Access to understand all of these     
instructions. Use the Spider Ball Tracks on the sides of the broken bridge  
of the Screw Attack to reach the other side of the room. Head to the left 
to find some broken glass. Use a Power Bomb to destroy the glass and reveal 
a Scan Console. Activate it to enable a nearby elevator. Ride it to the top,
and Scan the console there to activate a Kinetic Orb Cannon on the floor   
below you.                                                                

Roll into the Kinetic Orb Cannon to be blasted onto a round platform. Roll 
around until you find a Spider Ball Track leading to the top platform. Head 
up it. At the top you will find a hologram allowing you to enter a huge   
turret. Get inside the Cannon. Look at the left side of the chasm for a    
cracked wall high on the wall. Blast it with the cannon. A little bit below 
that is another cracked wall so blow that up too. Lastly, look at the other
side of the room and blast that wall over there. Get off the platform and 
roll back down to the Kinetic Orb Cannon.                                  

You'll be back on solid ground again. Head over to where you placed your   
first few turret shots. It revealed some Spider Ball Tracks hidden by the 
wall. That's pretty sneaky... Nonetheless, climb up the Spider Ball Tracks, 
Bomb Jumping whenever neccessary. Eventually you will reach the top platform.
Use the Screw Attack to head across the gap to the location of where the wall
across the chasm once was before you destroyed it. A Power Bomb Expansion is
just sitting on the ledge there.                                           

==========================================================
Power Bomb Expansion #5:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Transit Station
==========================================================
There is a Portal on the lower floor of the room, guarded by a wall. Use a  
Power Bomb to destroy the wall then use the Portal. Once you do, a Dark    
Ingsmasher will attack you. The wall it breaks through was covering a Portal,
but it can be used now, so run behind it and head back to Light Aether.    
There is a small tunnel to your left so head through it. You will appear near
another Portal which you need to use. In Dark Aether, use the nearby Spider 
Ball Tracks to reach one last Portal. The Spider Ball Tracks next to you   
go directly to the Power Bomb Expansion.                                   

==========================================================
Power Bomb Expansion #6:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Main Gyro Chamber
==========================================================
There is an Echo Gate at the very bottom of the chamber. It can only be    
opened by hitting the nearby pedestals with the Annhilator Beam in this    
order: the pedestal nearest the door, the pedestal furthest from the door, 
and then the pedestal in the center two times. This will cause the gate to 
open, revealing a Kinetic Orb Cannon. Get inside the be shot right into the 
center of the gyro, destroying it, and revealing a Power Bomb Expansion   
which you can then obtain.                                                

==========================================================
Power Bomb Expansion #7:Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Feeding Pit
==========================================================
Jump down into the dark waters. The Power Bomb Expansion is under the      
water so your gonna need to search for it. Its very hard to see down there. 
Use the Dark Visor when under water-it may make it a bit easier to find the 
Expansion somewhere underwater.                                            

==========================================================
Power Bomb Expansion #8:Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Purtrid Alcove
==========================================================
Head along the edge of the room to the right of the Dark Phlogus. There is  
a cracked wall here. Use a Power Bomb to destroy it and to reveal the final
Power Bomb Expansion.                                                      

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                        ~VII D.Beam Ammo Expansions~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ah yes...the all important Beam Ammo Expansions. Without them you'd quickly 
run out of Ammo for most of your Beams. There are only 4 Expansions in this 
catogoriy. Each Expansion raises the maximum capcity of Dark and Light Ammo
by 50, giving a total when you have all four 250 Beam Ammo. Really useful,
don't you think?                                                           

==========================================================
Beam Ammo Expansion #1:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Central Mining Station
==========================================================
You need to enter this room from the top door of Command Center Access.    
Otherwise this isn't possible. Anyways, once you get out of that door you 
need to walk into either Turret on the left or the right. The one on the left
is the better choice. Once inside, look to the left to find a bunch of Pirate
Skiff's. Blow up the bottom one to create a platform for use later. Now,   
there is a small white box thingy near an orange force field. You need to  
destroy that with the Turret. You also need to destroy a cracked wall      
somewhere on the right side of the room. By doing this, you will cause     
several Space Pirates to attack you. Their no biggie...the Turret murders  
them (WARNING! If the Turret is destroyed and your inside it, you get an   
instant Game Over!). Now just follow the path around the top of the room  
until you reach a tunnel you can take that leads behind the force field...to
a Beam Ammo Expansion.                                                     

==========================================================
Beam Ammo Expansion #2:Light Aether - Sanctuary Fortress - Watch Station
==========================================================
This Beam Ammo Expansion is a bit....complicated to obtain. Head over to the
ledge near the Light door, and head right of it to another ledge with a    
Spider Ball Track on it. Get onto the Spider Ball Tracks and ride it high  
above the room. Drop into a Kinetic Orb Cannon, blasting you onto some     
more Spider Ball Tracks. Follow the Tracks around, using Bomb Jumps when you
need to until you reach a spinning platform with Spider Ball Tracks around 
it. Get onto it and wait until you pass a pair of red sticks. Place a Bomb 
just then to be blasted onto another circular spinning platform. Repeat    
this once more on this platform. You will then be on some more Spider Ball 
Tracks. Follow them into a tunnel. Head about halfway in then hold up on the
control stick to move into a secret room. This room holds a Beam Ammo      
Expansion. Bomb Jump into it.                                              

==========================================================
Beam Ammo Expansion #3:Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Cache A
==========================================================
In Poisoned Bog there is a Seeker Missile door. Head through it into Cache A.
The Beam Ammo Expansio will be right infront of you.                       

==========================================================
Beam Ammo Expansion #4:Dark Aether - Sky Temple Grounds - Profane Path
==========================================================
Use the Portal inside Sacred Path to reach this room. Once here, destroy   
both Dark Pirate Commando with a Charged Dark Beam blast followed by a     
Missile (the usual...). Now head to the other side of the room to find     
several Echo Pedestals and an Echo Door. Shoot the pedestals with the       
Annhilator Beam in the following order:back-right of the door, front-right
of the door, left of the door, and back-right of the door. This will open   
the door, revealing the last Beam Ammo Expansion.                          

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           ~VII.Complete Logbook~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is where the people with no life come to. I decided to copy down and  
type up every description in the Logbook, including the Inventory items.  
Here is everything I've compiled.                                          

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                         ~Subsection I-Creature Scans~
----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

================================
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. 

================================
Aether-Mechanoids-Stationary
================================
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-Space Pirate Logs-Cycle 4
================================
Log 44681 (Phazon Operations)
Found:Command Center
Scan Info:Log 4.468.1-Science Teams detected the presence of Phazon in the 
Dash system four cycles ago. High Command authorized the deployment of our
team shortly thereafter. Our orders are to establish a base on 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 levels. A cadre of elite Commandos has been       
dispatched to provide security for our force as well. This operation is now 
underway.                                   

Log 48853 (Local Conflict)
Found:Command Center
Scan Info:Log 4.885.3-Intellegence reports on the indigenous population of  
Aether are in error. This planet is not at peace, nor are the inhabitants  
docile. Evidence of a class four conflict is present here, though          
hostilities are at a minimal level now. Our territory has suffered several 
raids by a strange type of shadowy creature. These raids have caused      
considerable damage, and we have requested more combat troopers in response.

================================
Lore-Space Pirate Logs-Cycle 5
================================
Log 50086 (Great Discoveries)
Found:Command Center
Scan Info:Log 5.008.6-A spatial anomaly has been found within our base. We 
believe this rift in the time-space leads to a parallel dimension of some 
type, but have been unable to interact with it thus far. A strange artifact
was found near the anomaly as well. It may be a weapon or generator of some
kind:perhaps it is the key to accessing the anomaly. High Command is eager 
for reports on the relic. A new weapon for our arsenal is always welcome.  

Log 54421 (Rift Portal)
Found:Command Center
Scan Info:The Rift Portal has been opened. The artifact weapon, dubbed the 
"Dark Beam" by Science Team, provides the energy needed to open the portal,
although for a limited time. We've sent expiditions thorough the portal, and
they have returned with incredible news. The portal leads to a parallel    
dimension of Aether. This "Dark Aether" has suffered globic calamity,      
turning it into a toxic wasteland. It is the homeworld of the shadowy       
creatures who have been raiding our our base for the last cycle. Most       
importantly, it is the prime location of Phazon in this sector. Extraction  
plans are being prepared. We will not be denied!

================================
Lore-Space Pirate Logs-Cycle 6
================================
Log 62217 (Phazon Raids)
Found:Command Center
Scan Info:Phazon extraction raids are underway on Dark Aether. The toxicity
of the atmosphere has taken a toll on our work force, as have the hostile   
natives of that world. Science Team is preparing survival gear to protect 
our work teams, and we have increased security presence in extraction areas.
Fortunately, High Command is sending more troops and supplies. Our troops
and resources are spread dangerously thin, and this mission cannot fail.   

Log 63622 (The Hunter)
Found:Biostorage Station
Scan Info:Log 6.362.2-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 sugests 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. 

Log 67135 (Security Breach)
Found:Save Station C in Agon Wastes
Scan Info:Log 6.713.5-The Dark Hunter teleports into our base at will. Our 
security has proven next to useless against her. Her latest raid was       
disaterous. Not only did we lose 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 edge
of Federation space. With luck, we will have a stealth field back in effect 
before being detected.                          

Log 69898 (Shadow War)
Found:Main Reactor
Scan Info:The local war has escalated in intensity. The shadowlings from    
Dark Aether have launched an ofensive. The assult 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 new shadowy  
creatures are using a new weapons 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 toll on our troops and resources. Reinforcements
are en route. We can only wait and defend what is ours.                

================================
Lore-Space Pirate Logs-Cycle 7
================================
Log 70136 (Federation Attack)
Found:Security Station B
Scan Info:Log 7.013.6-Another disater. The trasnport bringing our         
reinforcements and supplies has been shot down. It was engaged in orbit by a
Federation vessel, which has landed near the alien temple. Its only a matter
of time before the Marines attack. Survivors from our ship have made their
way to our base. Here we shall make our stand. Another enemy. First the    
shadowlings, then the Dark Hunter, then the Galactic Federation Marine     
Corps. Perhaps fate will smile upon us, before the world itself opens its maw
and swallows us.                                   

Log 71599 (Two Hunters)
Found:Central Mining Station
Scan Info:Log 7.159.9-Another Hunter, this wearing the traditional colors of
Samus Aran, made planetfall today. Horrific as it may sound, there are two
of them now. We are bracing for a new assult. This dire turn of events may 
have some good will. One of our scouts in Dark Aether saw a curious       
encounter. The Dark Hunter attacked the clad as Samus near a Phazon site.  
Perhaps they are not allies...but foes. Perhaps we can forge and allience
with the Dark Hunter-an exchange of Phazon for the head of our common enemy.

CAPT A. Exeter
Found:GFMC Compound
Scan Info:I'm beginning to think it was a real bad idea going down there.  
Reevs is right, that hive is just one of many. Its stupid to stir a hornet's
next, especially if you plan on sleeping on it.

PFC S. Milligan
Found:GMFC Compound
Scan Info:Brouda lost the bet, so he switched watch duty with me tonight.  
I figure this section is nice and safe and boring, which suits me fine. Let
those other pugs guard that hot zone! I...hold on...hey! Halt...No! Hel--  
(Transmission Ends)

SPC F. Triplette
Found:GMFC Compound
Scan Info:The sarge says these "Splinters" remind him of some killer bug he
saw on another planet once. All I know is the things are fast and take a lot
to drop. Pretty soon we'll have to goto bayonets. Everyone's low on ammo...
even Brode, and he's the stingiest grunt I know.
Additional Notes:Perhaps the Sarge's "Bug" may have been Imago from Metroid
Zero Mission....Maybe Flahhgra for all we know...

LCPL J. Brode
Found:GMFC Compound
Scan Info:Man, I only hope this is the breeding grounds for these things.  
If there's more, were in big trouble. We had a hard enough time taking that
one out of comission:I almost ran out of ammo. I never run out of ammo!

PFC G. Haley

They'll eat me. Eat. 
Additional Notes:*coughmentallyinsanecough*

PFC I. Crany
Found:GMFC Compound
Scan Info:Last night at chow, Angseth starts talking about some bounty     
hunter and how she blew up a planet full of Space Pirates. I told her I    
don't believe in fairy tales like that, and she took it personal. I just    
find it hard to believe that one person took out an entire Space Pirate base,
that's all. But if she wants to believe in this Samus, or Bigfoot, or Santa 
Claus she can.
Additional Notes:WTF? Samus works for the Federation. These guys work for the
Federation. How do they NOT know her? And isn't it several thousand years
past where we all know Santa don't exist?

Found:Communication Area
Scan Info:We'll be making our stand here. The engineer tells me there's no  
way we'll get the ship's engines online, and atmospheric interference is   
scrambling our distress beacon. If anyone reads this, know that we did our  
duty and fought well.       

SPC B. Reevs
Found:Command Chamber
Scan Info:I don't like this plan. This hive is a small portion of a large 
network. There may be dozens of hive systems like this across the planet, 
and they may all be linked. Destroying this one may buy us time, but it may
also provoke the other hives into attacking.          

PFC M. Veroni
Found:Collapsed Tunnel
Scan Info:I think Haley's losing it. He talks to himself all the time, and 
he won't sleep. He almost shot me on watch the other night. I think he     
thought I was one of those things. I talked to the doc about him being off 
the line, and he told me we need all the help we can get. That's true, but 
if he goes beserk and kills a bunch of us, that won't be very helpful.    

SPC M. Angseth
Found:Trooper Security Station
Scan Info:This is rediculous. I can outshoot half the men here, and I'm stuck
on monitor duty. I didn't join up to stare at a holoscreen! This wouldn't   
happen to Samus Aran...She'd be out there taking care of business, not     
pushing buttons and sending reports.                

GSGT C. Benet
Found:Command Chamber
Scan Info:There's something wrong with the lock systems in this section.   
They've failed us twice, locking us out until someone came along to let us
in. If it happens again while were playing "bait" for those things...
well, at least we'll go out fighting, instead of hiding in the control area.

The Ing Attack
Found:Path of Roots
Scan Info:The day came when space was torn asunder, revealing dimensional  
rifts to a dark place. Horrible dark swarms streached forth from these rifts,
engulfing nearby creatures and transforming them into what we would call  
darklings. The dark creatures became our enemies, and peace came to an end
on Aether.

Cataclysm
Found:Mining Station A
Scan Info:The starborne terror burnt through the heavens and struck Aether
with untold might. We all expected the world to shatter...but Aether held. 
There was great devistation, however. The green plains of Agon were       
scorched forever, and the forest of Torvus was engulfed and wreacked by the
sea. The skies burned for days, casting darkness over the land.         

The World Warped
Found:Path of Eyes
Scan Info:Amidst the turmoil, we discovered many disturbing anomalies.     
Spatual disturbences appeared across the land. Objects went into a state of
dimensional flux, their atoms divided between Aether and....somewhere else.
There was little time to ponder these strange happenings for we had to deal
with the devistation of our lands.                 

Age of Anxiety
Found:Meeting Grounds
Scan Info: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 devistation. 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 homes, there was no sign.         

================================
Lore-Luminoth Lore-History-Golden Age
================================
Origins
Found:Main Energy Controller
Scan Info: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 light of a thousand stars. We met a vast number of enlightened minds...
the N' Kren, the Vlla, and the Chozo amoung 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.                            

The Stellar Object
Found:Mining Station B
Scan Info: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 put a great
strain on the Energy Controllers, and weakened Aether. All we could do as the
object grew closer was take shelter and wait. We gathered stores of food and
water, reinforced the sheilding on our dwellings, and spent the last few   
hours in peace.                    

Our Heritage
Found:Transport to Agon Wastes in Temple Grounds
Scan Info:Our search for a home took us through the cosmos. For many a great
cycle we roamedm yet a place to calll our own eluded us. In time, we began
to dispair, feeling the search was in vain. We considered remaining amoung
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
Found:Main Plaza
Scan Info:Aether was a fertile, aged world with bountiful fields and oceans.
The nature 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 of our accomplishments. It was a time of harmony for
our people.                                 

Light of Aether
Found:Portal Terminal
Scan Info:The Main Energy Controller was built in the Great Temple:three   
sub-controllers were built in the Temples of Agon. Torvus, and Sanctuary.  
They collected the energy of Aether, then radiated it over the world to those
who needed it. In time, we came to call this precious energy the "Light of 
Aether." It brought an age of peace and properity to the Luminoth.     

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

Lore-Luminoth Lore-Conflict-First Phase
================================
The New Terror
Found:Catacombs
Scan Info:In time, the Ing began to possess the Luminoth as well as       
creatures. Friends and family members became the enemy, spilling Luminoth   
blood across the land. Desprate, we devised sheilding to prevent Ing      
possession. It was effective, but not perfect. Should the sheilding fall, all
Luminoth were prepared to self-terminate rather than become a weapon for the
Ing.                                   

Dark Aether
Found:Torvus Energy Controller
Scan Info:In time, we created machines to open rifts to our enemies 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 saw the true face of the enemy, a race
we came to call the "ing" meaning terror. Our scouts could not survive long 
enough on the surface of Dark Aether, so venemous was its air. Still, we   
vowed to return. We prepared for war.

Our War Begins
Found:Underground Tunnel
Scan Info:We developed Crystals that brought the Light of Aether to the dark
world. Uing the Crystals allowed our warriors to explore the enemy lands to 
bring war to the Ing. Sadly, the Crystals weren't enough. We needed stronger
weapons, better armor. We withdrew form Dark Aether while our greatest minds
developed new engines of war.                                    

Recovering Energy
Found:Training Chamber
Scan Info:We were not prepared to fight a long war. The forces of our enemy
outnumbered 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 drk world would cease to 
be, and our world would be restored to stability.                   

New Weapons
Found:Gathering Hall
Scan Info: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
the 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.                                               

================================
Lore-Luminoth Lore-Conflict-Second Phase
================================
The Sky Temple
Found:Fortress Transport Access
Scan Info:We learned 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.                     

Agon Falls
Found:Sanctuary Energy Controller
Scan Info: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 galliant  
warrior there were slain, and Agon fell to the enemy. Our blood chilled when
we learned that the energy within the Temple was drained. The Ing had found
the Energy Transfer Module, and they were using our weapon against us.   

Torvus Falls
Found:Main Research
Scan Info:The Ing turned their focus on the Torvus Bog, 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 were 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.         

Shattered Hope
Found:Main Gyrochamber
Scan Info:None of our warriors sent to the Sky Temple ever came back alive. 
Our search team searched all over Dark Aether for them in vain. Of the     
Energy Transfer Module, there was no sign. Tough saddened, we set out to    
prepare another mission, to build another module to try at once more to save
our dying world.                 

The Final Crusade
Found:Hall of Combat Mastery
Scan Info:While our forces on Dark Aether fought desprate battles aganist  
superior numbers, our best minds completed their work. The Energy Transfer 
Module, a device designed to recover our planetary energy that was lost, was
ready at last. A force of our greatest warriors was assembled, each equipped
with the best armor and weaponary available. We sent thi brave cadre of   
fighters to invade the Sky Temple and seige the missing energy within.     

================================
Lore-Luminoth Lore-Conflict-Final Phase
================================
Sanctuary Falls
Found:Watch Station
Scan Info:Our battered forces gathered in Sanctuary Fortress to prepare for
the inevitable siege there. They didn't wait long. Wave after wave of Ing  
assulted the greatest of our fortresses, with a goal in mind:to siege the
enemy 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.                    

Twilight
Found:Sacntuary Entrance
Scan Info:What few remained gatheed in the Great Temple. There, all but 
U-Mos, the last Sentinal of Aether, entered into a state of life-preserving
stasis. There they would remain, to be released once the Ing were defeated...
or to sleep forever. His people safe, U-Mos prepared for the last, terrible
assult. In the silence of the Great Temple, he prayed for salvation, for  
deliverence from the terror of the Ing.

J-Stl's Testament
Found:Central Mining Station
Scan Info:My journey comes to an end. The thrice-cursed Ing prepared an    
ambush of singular cunning in the mining station. They cought me in it like
a neophyte fresh from the training halls. I have sent five score of their  
numbers to whatever foul pit they call afterlife, but in vain. My life is 
extinguished.                  

B-Stl's Testament
Found:Main Reactor
Scan Info:I can go no further. Here in this reactor, I go to join my fallen
mate, J-Stl, in final rest. Though I die with honor, a shame falls on my    
house until the key I seek reaches its destination. May my brothers find   
my burden, that the way to the Sky Temple will be opened at last.        

A-Kul's Testament
Found:Sky Temple gateway
Scan Info:Soon I shall pass to final rest. My key is in place. Through my 
spirtual link to the others, I know where their bodies lie. I shall leave
this knowledge, that their locations in the Dark World can be known. May this
knowledge lead our warriors to the SKy Temple Keys. The time draws near.   
Hear the word of A-Kul, she they call Champion of Aether. Know that my    
warriors fought and died with uncommon valor. Do not look unkindly upon   
their failure, for they died to save us all.              

S-Dly's Testament
Found:Torvus Lagoon
Scan Info:They came to the lagoon in the night, delivering true deathblows
before I could detect them. As my life faded, I sent a call to the cadre to
warn of this surprise attack. May they find my key, and dispatch the Ing who
killed me. Only then will my final rest be peaceful.       

G-Sch's Testament
Found:Catacombs
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.

Scan Info:That last hit breached my armor. The poison spreads. Though I have
found the key, it is too late for me. Soon my light will fail. They know I 
am here. They will come to this site to plunder the key. My last stand shall
be at the enge of the temple grounds. I only hope I have the strength to   
fight when they arrive.                                         

J-Fme's Testament
Found:Industrial Site
Scan Info:Final entry, Warrior J-Fme. Their army swells. Beasts and machines
join the ranks of the horde, all eager to bring death to the Luminoth. The  
Ing sent their new additions to the industrial site to do battle with me,  
while they watched from safety. Cowardly mongrels! My only regret in death is
that I did not live to see the day of their defeat. May it come soon!     

S-Jrs's Testament
Found:Sanctuary Entrance
Scan Info:A-Kul tried to send me back to Aether, that I might get          
reinforcements. Both cadre's have been attacked, devistated. The Ing followed
me. They came wearing the skin of beasts. I gave them a good fight, yet, I
have failed. May I redeem my honor in the next life. Here, at the fortress 
entrance, I breathe my last.                                  

D-Isi's Testament
Found:Storage Cavern A
Scan Info:It is inside me. I feel it spreading. clawing at my will, tearing
away at my thoughts. It moves me against my will, to this cavern. Here it 
will not end. I do not wish this, do not want my body to become a weapon for
the Ing within me. It hates. It demands obidence. I will fight to the end. 
I shall self-terminate before I will be a filthy pawn of the Ing.         

C-Rch's Testament
Found:Dynamo Access
Scan Info:Let this be the final testament of warrior C-Rch. I have no more 
shells for my weapons. For the enemy, I have nought but the blade and fist.
Let them come. They wait in the works, hissing and slithering like beasts. 
Let them. When my war cry comes, there will be a dread, final reckoning.   
Come forth, hated enemy! Let there be an end!

Found:Main Energy Controller
Scan Info:Subject is U-Mos, a Sentinel of the Luminoth. Scans indicate    
numerous beneficial abilities, including hightened reflexes, durability, 
psionics, and flight. Ability to generate and manipulate energy on par with
that of the Chozo. Dating scans indicate an age of 2.15 centicycles. Only
known active member of the species:remaining Luminoth locked in protective
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    
Aether was born, it too had Energy Controller's, all linked to the world's 
planetary energy.

Phazon
Found:Main Reactor
Scan Info:Origin point of Phazon unknown. First detection of element on    
planet Tallon IV. Used by Space Pirates to produce vast levels of energy.  
Bioforms exposed to Phazon without proper sheilding will eventually        
undergo radical mutation.

Scan Info:Light 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.

Dark Aether
Found:Command Center
Scan Info:Can't determine origin of Aether's "dark twin". Contains high     
levels of Phazon ore. Native bioforms attack on sight.                   

================================
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      
becomes a symbol to the Ing. They are compelled to approach it, despite the 
deadly field of energy it emits.   

Energized Beacon
Found:Shoot a Light Beacon with a Light Beam shot
Scan Info:Energized Beacons 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.

light weaponry. Used by the Luminoth forces during their war. Most still   
function, despite perioudic abuse by the Ing.

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

You can fire your weapons while attached to a Grapple Point.             

================================
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    
are superior.

Research-Biology-Darklings
================================
Ingclaw
Found:Watering Hole
Scan Info:The Ingclaw secretes an incredibly durable shell over itself     
shortly after birth. From that moment on, it remains rooted in place. The   
creature feeds on the floatsam floating in Dark Aether's atmosphere, and    
produces waste in the form of a toxic dark vapor.                          

Ing Webtrap
Found:Battleground (1 TIME SCAN!!!)
Scan Info:These creatures respond from commands from the Ing, forming over  
areas as ordered. They are virtually indestructable, and can only be undone
by killing the Ing that commands them.                                     

Webling
Found:Feeding Pit Access (1 TIME SCAN!!!)
Scan Info:Weblings spin a network of energized snare lines, then sit in the 
middle and wait for the prey to get caught in it, much like a a spider. A   
Webling is incredibly durable, though it has the darkling weakness to      
light.                                                                    

Dormant Ingclaw
Found:Accursed Lake
Scan Info:Ingclaws occasionally enter a strange torpor, brought on by      
constant exposure to the atmosphere of Dark Aether. While in this dream    
state, the creature does not feed or expel it deadly vapor. Fortunately,   
its indestructable shell protects it from predators.                       

================================
Research-Biology-Cocoons
================================
Metroid Cocoon
Found:Biostorage Access
Scan Info:The Space Pirates transport young Tallon Metroids in an organic   
"cocoon" designed to sustain the small creatures. Each cocoon can support   
numerous infants for several cycles. The creatures are normally content to  
remain in the cocoon, but will emerge when they detect the presence of      
Phazon.                                                                   

Splinter Cocoon
Found:Industrial Site
Scan Info:Splinters will enter their protective cocoons when tired or sated.
The cocoon is durable, but can be destroyed by weapons fire. Destroying     
a cocoon will kill the Spinter inside:when this occurs, the dying Splinter  
will let out a shriek that will alert all nearby Splinters in hybernation.  
This will drive them into a battle frenzy as a defense mechanism.           

War Wasp Hive
Found:Sacred Path
Scan Info:War Wasps require considerable amounts of sleep after a long hunt.
They weave a protective hive from organic fluids they secrete to          
themselves, then crawl inside to rest, Though safe from most predators,    
the hive can be damaged by exposive weapons.

                           ~VIII.One-Time Scans~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
There are several Scan in the game that if you miss are impossible to obtain
every again, and therefore you won't be able to obtain 100% Scans. I'll list
all the One-Timers here.                                                   

==============================
Samus's Gunship
==============================
Found:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Landing Site

Make sure you Scan this as soon as you start the game. Once you enter Agon 
Wastes the Scan changes to "Ship auto-repair function at XX% and rising".
Its kinda intresting...the further you get in the game the higher the      
completion level is.                                                       

==============================
GF Gate MK VII
==============================
Found:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Dynamo Chamber

You may not notice this but this gate is indeed Scanable. Once it has been 
destroyed by a Power Bomb its gone for good so don't forget to Scan it. As  
long as you never destroy it, the Scan will always be there. I haven't found
any other GF Gate's MKVII.                                                

==============================
Growler Class Turret
==============================
Found:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - Trooper Security Station

You'll find one of these in this room shooting at a Splinter. There are    
very few in the game and after a while all dissapear so Scan it first time
you see it.                                                                

==============================
Kinetic Orb Cannon
==============================
Found:Light Aether - Temple Grounds - GFMC Compound

Once you Scan the Scan Console in the room a hologram for the Kinetic Orb  
Cannon will appear. You need to Scan the Cannon BEFORE there is a hologram
there. There are tons of Kinetic Orb Cannons in the game and once their    
all activated, your screwed. Be careful and Scan this when you get your   
first chance in GFMC Compound.                                              

==============================
Alpha Splinter
==============================
Found:Light Aether - Great Temple - Temple Sanctuary

==============================
Pirate Trooper
==============================
Found:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Mining Station A

Space Pirates, or more specifially Pirate Troopers, are first found in Mining
Station A. You will fight normal Pirate Troopers several times later but once
you've killed them all I don't think any more remain.                      

==============================
Alpha Sandigger
==============================
Found:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Agon Temple

Once you enter the Temple you will be drawn into a fight with an Alpha    
Sandigger. You will face it for about 10 seconds before the Ing possess it 
so hurry up with the Scan!                                                  

==============================
Bomb Guardian
==============================
Found:Light Aether - Agon Wastes - Agon Temple

The Ing will possess the Alpha Sandigger rather quickly, turning it into the
Bomb Guardian. Before you go about killing him make sure you take the time

Lightbringer
==============================
Found:Dark Aether - Dark Agon Wastes - Duelling Range

The Lightbringer is a small creature that walks along a set path in the room.
Its basically a moving Light Beacon as its always creating a safe zone     
shield. As soon as you kill the Jump Guardian he will never appear again so
don't forget to Scan him! I believe he still is somewhere on Dark Aether   
though...the Scan says he can be destroyed by the Annhilator Beam. Although
you get that long after he dissappears. Using an Action Replay I found out
they REALLY are killed by the Annhilator Beam. Hmmmm....now just where could
they be?

Grapple Guardian
==============================
Found:Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Sacificial Chamber

Technically, this isn't a 1-time Scan. Why? Its impossible to beat the

==============================
Dark Chykka
==============================
Found:Dark Aether - Dark Torvus Bog - Dark Torvus Temple

Halfway through the fight and near the end Chykka Adult changes into Dark

Emperor Ing Body
==============================
Found:Dark Aether - Sky Temple - Sanctum

The Emperor Ing Body is the large lower half of the first stage of the     
Emperor Ing battle. Don't miss it.                                        

==============================
Emperor Ing Head
==============================
Found:Dark Aether - Sky Temple - Sanctum

The Emperor Ing Head is in the first stage of the battle. Its where the     
tentacles are coming from.                                                 

==============================
Emperor Ing Eye
==============================
Found:Dark Aether - Sky Temple - Sanctum

Once the tentacles have been destroyed, the Head opens up revealing the    
Emperor Ing Eye. Don't forget about its Scan!                             

==============================
Emperor Ing Chrysalis
==============================
Found:Dark Aether - Sky Temple - Sanctum

Emperor Ing turns into a large chrysalis after defeating its first form.   
Quickly Scan it before taking too much damage from the poison gas.         

==============================
Mutated Emperor Ing
==============================
Found:Dark Aether - Sky Temple - Sanctum

Pretty hard to miss. It looks like a giant Warrior Ing. Scan it while trying
to avoid its relentless stream of attacks.                                

==============================
Dark Samus 3
==============================
Found:Dark Aether - Sky Temple Grounds - Sky Temple Gateway

You aren't able to Scan Dark Samus 3 for very long. Scan her as soon as the 
fight starts.                                                            

==============================
Dark Samus 4
==============================
Found:Dark Aether - Sky Temple Grounds - Sky Temple Gateway

Once Dark Samus has gone into her giant Phazon bubble once, she'll become  
Dark Samus 4. Don't forget about her Scan before defeating her. Even if you
do, once you beat the game your restarted at your last Save so you can beat
Emperor Ing and Dark Samus again and get their Scans over and over again.  
Technically, they aren't really 1-time Scans.

Here are some handy dandy Checklists for the Scans and the Expansions. There
are no desriptions, just a place for a checkmark, and the room name (and in
the Scan Checklist, the Scan name).
