4. Ice Troopers
charge an (ice beam) or use ice beams at it and finish it with one missile
There is a large gap between you and the Space Jump boots. If you run, and hold down the jump button and jump twords the wall at the same time you can make it everytime.
To destroy a metroid easy you must have the ice beam shoot it then use a missile it's that simple
To defeat him you charge up your wave beam and aim at him then hold Y keep shooting till he dies.Then a hole should open go through with morph ball it will be hard to find the way through once you do then you should get power bomb then use it on the rocks.You should be able to figure out the rest.
To get the spider ball you have to have the ice beam.
NEXT go to a rock boss.You have to be on a mission where you get the heat mask.Once you get it then there should be a ice door go through then keep going a while it might take a while for you to get through the level.If you do then go to the boss.
CAUTION:must have gravity suit
a statue depicting the best of a Chozo Shaman adorns this door. The translation reads, "To pass my gaze, seek my twin within this room."
To stun the boss eather shot a missle or fully charged power beam shot.
When it's nessacary to morph ball jump insted of doing things at random you should first put one bomb down wait untill it's about to blow up the just before put down another bomb then put when in the air at the highest point in the first bombs jump when you land the one you placed down right after the first one should go off that sends you to were the bomb in the air is and once you get up to the bomb in the air it should blow up sending you higher. This works 100% of the time if done right and it will help you get to more places
I found that the easy way to beat ridley is to use the plasma beam (red one)
Keep charging it up & hitting him until he loses his wings then change to power beam and use super missiles
My way allows you too save your missiles until it is needed near the end
You are required to be excellent at dodging attacks tho.
I did this on hard difficulty very pleased to have done it.
+ near the end when his charges hit you more, if you go towards him as he charges up and then dodge to the left or right you are more likely to not get hit
IN Mertroid Prime, if you saved in the first save station you find in phazon mines, the pirates will become active once you leave the save room. If you defeat the first two pirates that attack you, keep an eye on the pirate in the crane control station. If he sees you and leaves the room, charge you ice beam. When you see the pirate on the roof, fire the ice beam. It will miss, but will instead hit the pirate right behind him! You should try it. I learned this on my own.
If you go the the meteor site and more importantly to the place where the cipher is, you can scan the stone panels down there for clues to where they are.
We all know that at the start of the game you are in a space pirate frigate and after you kill the parasite queen you blow it up. But however you can return to it.
To return there you need the ice beam and the gravity suit.
There is a route there from the landing site. Get to a room that's called the Frigate Landing Site. Look around for some steps in the water and follow that path and you'll eventually get to a white door.
Go through the door and follow that path to return to the frigate.
Note: Although it's blown up, sone security systems are still active and there are some survivors so be careful.
Thardus only has a few attacks - he'll get into a ball and roll at you, which you can avoid by Morph Ball Boosting away, he can send rocks flying at you and he can also shoot ice along the ground at you, both of which you can avoid by jumping/running out of the way.
To see Thardus' weak point, put on the Thermal Visor (D-Down), lock on (L-Button) and attack the red, 'hot spot.' Keep attacking with either charged up Power or Wave Beam shots, Missiles or Super Missiles; when you've dealt enough damage, your Visor will go bright and you'll need to switch back to your Combat Visor (D-Up). The spot that you were attacking will now be a blue, 'cold spot' - lock onto it and attack it again.
Power Beam shots are stronger than Wave Beam shots, but Wave Beam shots are better because they home in on the locked on spot - use this on the arms and legs. Super Missiles are even stronger and home in too, but they can be wasted if they get blocked by another part of his body - so use them on his head, shoulders and chest.
If you get low on Missile Ammo or Health, destroy the rocks that he throws at you to get some refills.
Other than that, just keep attacking his hot and then cold spots until he's history - good luck!
After defeating Metroid Fusion, connect the link cable to GBA and the Gamecube. Doing this will open the the old original NES Metroid on Metroid Prime.

Bird Hunting on Tallon IV!
When you are in Chozo Ruins, look up. You will find many birds flying around, ready for the killing. Shoot at them, and you will see their feathers gently fall if you shoot them correctly.
Early Space Jump Boots
As soon as you land on Tallon IV, get on top of the ship in the back-left area. Lock on dead ahead and dash (right while holding B) until you've gained enough speed and are right at the edge of the ship. Let go of the lock and dash, then press B while tilting the Control Stick all the way right. This propels Samus farther than usual and allows her to grab onto the edge of a cliff to the far right. Follow the path from there to get the Space Jump Boots! (NOTE: You can do this right when you begin on Tallon IV!)
Space Jump Boots Early: PAL and NAPC
Unlike the NTSC version of this glitch, you cannot execute a dash jump via Scan Visor. Instead, head to the Temple Access (the room visible when you are finished saving on your ship). Lock on to the first Seedling and back up. Without letting your lock on reticule pass the door connecting the Landing Site with Temple Access, head back to your ship and carefully position yourself on the rear right thruster on the ship. Now, execute a dash jump (dash right, off of the ship, and let go of L when the dash is executed) and continue to the Alcove. Your Space Jump Boots await you!
Suicidal Wall Metroids
First, get a metroid latched onto you. Next, lay a bomb and position yourself next to a wall, so that when the metroid is dislodged, it gets stuck in the wall. Wait a couple seconds, and the metroid should simply explode. This is particularly useful against the Fission Metroids, especially when low on Power bombs.
Frozen Omega Pirate without a Stasis Chamber
When you enter the Omega Pirate's stasis chamber room for the boss fight(It's for getting the Phazon Suit) switch to your Scan Visor. Now lock onto the Omega pirate and walk to his left, start scanning him and walk toward him until a Cinema screen appears. When the movie screen appears press start to skip this little movie. You should see him without the stasis chamber around him. This gives you the Chance to Blow off one of his Shoulder/Knee pads before he even wakes up. SECRETS
Unlock Original NES Metroid/Metroid Fusion Suit
To unlock the original NES Metroid, simply beat Metroid Fusion on GBA, then link the GBA (with Fusion in it) to the GCN (with prime in it) then at the main menu of prime goto the bottom where it says GBA link bonuses or something like that. Make sure you have beaten Metroid Fusion though. To unlock the Metroid Fusion Suit, do the exact same thing only don't beat fusion, but beat prime.
Easy Meta Ridley kill
During Ridley's second phase, use the Wavebuster. With enough Missiles, he dies in one hit.
Meta Ridley Quick Air Form
This trick makes Ridley much shorter. While in his air form, wait until he flies above you and crashes down on you. Before he flies back up, hit him with the boost ball. If done correctly, he will lose his wings and the ground form will begin.
Easy Metroid Prime (Core) battle
Near the point at which you start is something resembling a twig embedded into the ground. While standing on top of this twig, you are completely immune to Metroid Prime's shockwave, it's only (common) attack. The only things that can hurt you are the short range lunge attack and spawned Metroids, which fall easily anyway.
Curiously, while standing here, Metroid Prime will not change emission spectra without laying a pool of Phazon, which helps the fight along considerably.
Yeah, I know lots of people have a lot of trouble timing their bombs to perform a double jump. But I'll try to help.
A = press the "A" button to drop a bomb
- = wait 1/4 second.
Here goes: A----A-A
This means that after dropping the first bomb, wait one second then drop the second one. Then 1/4 seconds after the second one, drop your third.
The third bomb should be in the air and must be dropped very quickly after the second one. Sorry if this was hard to understand, but I did my best explaining =)
Okay, when you enter the room, Scan the Omega Pirate before you approach him and he gets out. He has 4 areas of Phazon Armor that protect him (each shoulder and each leg), lock on to one (L), charge up the Power Beam (hold A), hold it and wait until his hand isn't glowing to let off a Super Missile (Y) while jumping (B+B) over his wave attacks. Once all 4 are gone, he'll kneel and call some Pirates; you can fight them if you want, but if you keep moving around they shouldn't hurt you too much. Eventually Omega will appear in one of the Phazon patches to restore his armor - you'll need to put on your X-Ray Visor for this. Lock on to him and fire another Super Missile to actually damage him - you can hit him twice if you're fast enough; he'll then disappear and reappear in another Phazon pool - nail him again with a Super Missile if you have time. When he reappears, go back to the Combat Visor and repeat the process (attacking the 4 areas of Phazon Armor) - his wave attacks should take out the rest of the Pirates for you, just keep moving and make sure you pick up any Ammo or Health that they leave behind. It takes about 4-6 Super Missiles when he's recharging to finish him. I suggest finding as many Energy Tanks and Missile Expansions as you can before you face him. Once you beat him, you get the awesome-looking Phazon Suit, I like it anyway; good luck, hope that helps =)

When Meta Ridley is flying around shoot him with whatever you want, it won't do much damage - the time to cause some major pain is when he's floating still; at one point he'll lean his head back to charge up a laser - that's when you nail his gleaming red chest with a Super Missile! Once about two thirds of his health is gone, he'll lose his wings and the 'real fun' will begin; you're going to get and have to be good at dodging - always be locked on and watch the cues, he'll get ready to charge at you when he leans back so start jumping to the side; next, he'll swing his tail around, so jump over that. Now, keep your Power Beam charged up - he may or may not scream at you, if he does, let him have the charged up Power Beam shot - this will expose his gleaming red chest again, so get a Super Missile in there, but do it quickly, he doesn't give you much time! Repeat, repeat, repeat...I'm guessing that your right hand will hurt at the end of this battle - good luck =)
Some of you guys probably know this, but I'm telling everybody because it took me a while to figure it out. When you're fighting metriod prime, change visors after you get in the phazon pool or you won't see him to kill him(or her).
