All you metroid fans. Guess what?
You know at the ditch where you get the boost ball?To get out with the key, you need the boost ball or ya can't get out of the section.
You get the key you can drop down from where you are and once ya land you basically get the key, but with the other side.
And there you have it!
Okay, this is weird. A glitch, probably. If you go through some portals to either the light or dark worlds, sometimes, the light reflected off of Samus's suit during the transition will be misplaced.
Like, white light will be reflected off of some side of her suit, yet that side of the suit may be facing the dark end of the portal transition. This does not apply for all portals.
The first two portals in the game properly place the light reflections.
I know that some of you are annoyed by the fact that it is really hard to find ammo and health when you need it. I know a couple spots where you can find alot of ammo and health. 1. Torvus Bog-In the hallway to where you fight the Alpha Blogg. 2. Sanctuary fortress- the place where there are all the little robots. 3.(this is hard to do)Ing Hive-Where you find the Ing Infant. Well hope that helps you.
If you have ever beaten this game on 100%, you will note at the very end it shows Dark Samus forming outside of Aether's atmosphere, right? Well, I figured it out... Remember how after Samus defeated Dark Samus the wall of Phazon released entry into the portal to head back to the Light World? Well, I have figured out that a likely explanation for all this is that Dark Samus, after diappearing inches in front of Samus, controlled the Phazon wall to explode to release the portal. Samus went through the portal as expected, but then Dark Samus gave chase, heading through the portal as well, invisible with her ability to sheath herself in alter-photonic Phazon. This was Dark Samus's plan to escape the Dark World before her own destruction.
That is how I predict that the Phazon wall exploded in the end, and how Dark Samus reforms outside of Aether's atmosphere at the end.
I found the the 3 beam ammo's but the 4th won't open work sheiny said
4 - Sky Temple Grounds - Profane Path - Use the portal in the Sacred Path to get to this room, then use the Annihilator Beam and Echo Visor on the Echo Keys.
The order of the keys is: far right, near right, left and far right.
That wasn't too hard, Except I couln't find the 4 key lock.
The first three are there but the fourth is hidden somewhere and I can't find it.
Not with any visor.
I hate this boss and everybody elses method of hitting it and then hide behind the wall and it grapples the wall DOESNT WORK. For me, at least. So here is how I do it, and it is easy. Hit it in the eye with four missiles, then immediatly charge up the light beam while dashing behind it, and as soon as it fully charges, fire at it's butt. NOTE: you will hit it with the light beam before it tries to grapple, because it shakes itself for a second after you hit it's eye.
This is how you deafeat Alpha Blogg: you make Alpha Blogg charge at you.Then you shoot a super missle at the mouth.
You have to use the Anniahlator Beam to solve the sonic locks, listen to the sounds when you shoot the door and it'll give you the combo.
I don't know if any of the walkthroughs mention that You need the Anniahlator Beam for the sonic locks, so I had to figure it out the hard way.
First you need the Boost Ball and the Spider Ball(Which you probably already have). Well the Spider Ball track that is touching the bottom, hold your R button and boost towards the track, if you get on to it you should get an outside view of the temple (you wouldnt see this view otherwise) for a few seconds.
Note: If you miss just try again it's not all that hard.
When fighting the grapple guy just hide behind the two pillars and when it is safe shoot it with a couple times with a charged light beam shot or shoot missiles, then shoot it from behind.
Okay, here's what I have discovered:
After talking to U-Mos for the first time, if you have the Phazon Beam ready (you need an Action Replay to use the Phazon Beam andywhere, refer to the AR Codes section of this game) then you should be able to destroy red hatches, green hatches, and yellow hatches, and you may be able to open light and dark doors, though I don't know yet. I am basing this possibility off of the fact that Phazon Beam can damage the Emperor Ing no matter what color it bears, and in the fact that it can activate light and dark portals.
Anyway, I have found that after talking to U-Mos for the first time, you should be able to destroy anything that requires Bombs, Missles, Charge Beam, Light Beam, Dark Beam, Power Bomb, or Annihilator Beam... I can't promise anything, though. Remember, we're fooling around with a game hack by using the Action Replay.

Using a move called getto jump, you can get the missle lancher twice, When you first enter GFMC Compound, make your way to the boot-shaped rock found just before the cutscene. Place yourself between it and the dark part of the wall. With the very bottom of the boot in the center of your view, get a running start and jump just as you touch it (while holding up on the stick).
Immediately after pressing B, hold left on the stick briefly, then hold up again as the jump is about to peak. The idea is to ghetto jump off the bottom for an initial height boost, slide left up the boot for more height, and finally push yourself up to the ledge.
Once you're up, drop down next to the missile launcher and take it. Now head back to the entrance to trigger the cutscene you previously avoided. The missile launcher will reappear and you can collect it a second time, letting you finish with 101% if you get everything else (or 100% leaving out an item of your choice).
Most of you Metroid Players are probably frusterated by how long it takes to kill a Pirate Commando. Right? Well If you are, I have an answer for you. Simply activate all the light beacons(use the light or annihilator beam) in the room, and hit them with super missles(it you have them). They will fly somewhere in the room and if they hit a light activated light beacon they will die. It doesn't work all the time but it's conveniant when it does. Well I have to be goin. Try it out.
She's actually easy to defeat.try to enter the battle with as much energy as possible with plenty of missles(you will see y in a bit).scan her b4 she attacks then after she lands on the ground lock on and fire super missles.hint:nothin works when she is a ball or in air.after a couple hits she will turn invisible.switch to dark visor.you wont be able to use missles because they will not follow and hit.shoot rapidly until she turns back visible.you're dark visor will overload which will cause you to switch back to combat visor.repeat until death.
DEATH TO THE DARK HUNTER!!!
-the ING SWARM
If your worried that your going to waste your Light Beam or Dark Beam ammo, well all you have to do is kill those creatures with a Dark Beam and you get Light Beam ammo, and kill creatures with the Light Beam and get Dark Beam ammo.
Hope this helps.
So you've beaten Emperor Ing - congrats, but wait - what happened - is that...Dark Samus?!?
First thing's first - scan Dark Samus #3, now, keep moving and continue shooting her with the Power Beam - charged up shots and Super Missiles whenever you want. You may need to switch to the Echo Visor and back, either way, when Dark Samus' health is low enough, she'll hover at the center of the room in an inpenetrable shield. Scan her again here - this is Dark Samus #4 and hopefully your 100% Scan, anyway, she'll unleash some Missile shots at you - dodge these; when she draws in Phazon and shoots them out at you in blue, stay where you are and absorb them with your charged up Power Beam - when your shot goes Blue, release it at her. She'll then fall down and come at you - just hit her with a Super Missile and repeat, go for it man - it's a piece of cake!
