Large Aquatic[edit]

Name Log contents
Alpha Blogg The Alpha Blogg is the largest and strongest of its pack. It can fire potent sonic stun blasts in battle. The blasts will disrupt your Visor and weapon control systems if they hit you. Its three titanic maws are potent weapons. Target the creature's mouth areas to inflict damage upon it.
Blogg The Blogg uses speed and agility to close in on prey. It will batter foes with a ramming attack, then use its three tooth-filled maws to finish the job. Bloggs have a weak spot inside their mouths: the rest of their bodies are covered with a thick, damage-resistant hide.

Small Aquatic[edit]

Name Log contents
Bloggling Young Blogg are weaker than their parents, but still violent. Their powerful jaws have yet to form, and they lack the defense abilities found in adult Blogg. They must rely on speed and agility for protection if attacked without the protection of their elders.
Hydlings Hydlings are small water dwellers. They travel in packs for safety, roaming the water in search of bits of food. Their only defense is a bite, though their small teeth are sharp enough to pierce metal.


Large Flyers[edit]

Name Log contents
Shredder The Shredder spends most of its life in the earth. When agitated, it will spring from the ground, then begin to fly toward its foe. Should it reach its target, the Shredder will explode with considerable force, releasing a cloud of thorns as it does. Shredders are resilient, but can be eliminated with concentrated weapons fire.
Shriekbat Shriekbats have high internal temperatures, leading them to seek cool climates to dwell in. They prefer caverns, roosting on ceilings while hunting for small prey. Fiercely territorial, they dive-bomb anything that wanders near. This attack is fatal for the Shriekbat, as the impact sets off a discharge of thermal energy.
Shrieker 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.

Small Flyers[edit]

Name Log contents
Lightflyer The Lightflyer is an aggressive flying drone. Once loyal to the Luminoth, it will now fire a burst of energy at any living thing within range. It generates light at all times, making it somewhat easy to target.
Lumite The Lumite thrives on light, and can render itself invisible to most predators while within it. When out of the light, the creature is relatively harmless, relying on a crudely spat chunk of biomatter to defend itself. Once in the light, it can channel large amounts of solar energy into a deadly blast.
Sandbats Sandbats are small flyers. They travel in packs for safety, though they are predatory in nature. Failing to find prey as a group, Sandbats will often enter a feeding frenzy and attack one another in search of sustenance.
War Wasp The War Wasp rarely strays far from its hive unless it is pursuing an immediate threat. It attacks with no regard for its own survival, dive-bombing its enemy with stinger extended. Fast-working toxins from the stinger can incapacitate most small organisms. If it battles foes at range, it will fire bursts of potent energy.



Name Log contents
Alpha Sandigger This appears to be a Sandigger pack leader, larger and stronger than the normal members of its kind. Target both of its heads to damage it.
Alpha Splinter Splinter war packs are dominated by the largest male. Alpha Splinters use their tremendous strength, size, and speed to subdue and kill prey, paving the way for their smaller broodlings.
Grenchler The amphibious Grenchler lurks in marsh areas in search of prey. Fearless, it will spring from hiding and attack anything that moves. If it is unable to fell its prey with its powerful jaws, it will fire a potent burst of energy at them. Grenchlers have one weak spot - a genetic defect makes the shell on their back susceptible to explosive blasts. Remove the shell to expose a vulnerable nerve center, then target it to eliminate the creature.
Sandigger Scans indicate that the Sandigger has a dual-brain nervous system. Both of its heads are capable of attacking, disabling, and digesting prey. It fires globs of acidic digestive fluid at prey to cripple them and begin the digestion process. Its hide is very durable and resistant to weapons fire: only its exposed eyes can be damaged.
Splinter When it isn't hunting, a Splinter will secret a protective cocoon around itself and enter a state of hibernation. Localized seismic disturbances will awaken the Splinter, triggering a state of blood frenzy in the process. While in this state, a Splinter emits pheromones that trigger frenzy in all nearby Splinters. Disturbing a pack of Splinters is not advisable.
Sporb The hanging Sporb sits patiently until a potential meal is detected. A burst of poisoned needles is the Sporb's primary means of attack. It can also extend its body over short distances, gripping small targets within its powerful jaws. Sporbs wither when exposed to dark energy, making them vulnerable to other weapon systems.

Surface Prowlers[edit]

Name Log contents
Brizgee 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 discourages most predators: those foolish enough to harass the Brizgee are quickly introduced to its deadly sting.
Green Kralee The cousin to the dimensional-shifting Kralee, the Green Kralee spends its days roaming in search of food. A genetic defect prevents its back crystal from harnessing energy and opening warp portals. It is doubtful the Green Kralee misses this ability.
Kralee The Kralee phases between dimensions as a defense mechanism. A crystal in its carapace gathers energy to fuel the creation of a warp portal. The process is uncontrollable, keeping the Kralee in constant dimensional flux.
Krocuss The Krocuss thrives on toxins it extracts from its surroundings. It secretes an acidic trail in its wake as it roams in search of nourishment. The durable mollusk can be damaged when it exposes its toxin-absorbing gills: few weapons can penetrate the creature's shell.
Lightbringer Lightbringers were created by the Luminoth for use in their war with the Ing. The crystalline creatures generate a field of life-giving energy at all times, and they can be energized like a Safe Zone Crystal. They are immune to most weapon fire: only a burst of matter-antimatter can destroy them.
Seedburster Seedbursters are moving plants, capable of traveling great distances in search of fertile soil to deposit their seeds in. When provoked by predators, the Seedburster will explode, turning the precious seed inside into a deadly projectile. These seed often do not live to fruition, but help protect the rest of the Seedburster pack from attacks.

Tunnel Prowlers[edit]

Name Log contents
Pillbug Pillbugs prefer to dwell in dark caverns, though they can exist in lit areas. Navigating with a series of sensitive antennae, they roam through caves in search of moss and fungus. Pillbugs can move rapidly, and will ram unwary targets to clear their path as they search for food. A Pillbug can be jarred loose from a surface with a concussive blast: doing so reveals its vulnerable belly.
Worker Splinter The Worker Splinter is bred for service, not 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 often works with. They can generate a sturdy, pliable webbing, useful in travel throughout the Hive.



Name Log contents
Ingsmasher Designed to fight alongside the Luminoth, the Ingsmasher now seeks to destroy them. In close combat, it smashes its energized fists into the earth to send out powerful shock waves, then pulverizes any immobile prey. It will fire salvos of missiles at long-distance quarry. It uses an energy shield in battle that can be adjusted to protect against a variety of beam weapons. The shield can be overloaded by opposite-polarity beams, however, damaging the Ingsmasher in the process.
Mekenobite The Luminoth created the Mekenobite to help patrol the corridors and shafts of Sanctuary Fortress. It uses magnetism to keep itself attached to the walls and ceilings. In combat, it will fire projectiles toward its target with a magnetic accelerator. It can only be dislodged by simultaneous explosive blasts. Mekenobites self-destruct once they are heavily damaged.
Quad CM A Quad is formed of two components: the quadruped Main Body and the flying Command Module. These units can function independently, or linked together, as the need arises. The Command Module relies on ranged beam weapon attacks. It can generate a powerful beam shield to protect itself. Opposite-polarity beams can penetrate this shield, however.
Quad MB A Quad is formed of two components: the quadruped Main Body and the flying Command Module. These units can function independently, or linked together, as the need arises. The Main Body uses melee attacks in battle. Though durable, it needs to vent excess heat from its body. When this happens, it exposes a venting system vulnerable to concussive attacks.
Watchdrone Watchdrones were built by the Luminoth to guard key areas and hinder Ing armies. Most of these units have betrayed their masters, and now serve the Ing. Watchdrones are indestructible and reluctant to move, but can be forced into quitting their posts by exposing them to bright, pure light. Once the light fades, the mechanoid will return to its original resting site.


Name Log contents
Diligence Class Drone 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 its duty. Their energy construct nature makes them invulnerable to most attacks, though dark energy can disrupt them.
Harmony Class Drone The Luminoth designed the Harmony units to be free-roaming, independent cleaning units. They use focused energy beams and kinetic pulses to perform their duties. Unfortunately, they now consider all living things as filth that must be cleansed from the world.
Mechlops The Luminoth tried to domesticate and train a number of Triclops for use in war, but failed. Undaunted, they created mechanical versions of the hardy creatures to use in battle. The few Mechlops that remain now serve other mechanoids, turning their potent jaws and earthmoving power against their former masters.
Octopede The Octopedes were created to deliver data to Luminoth citizens. They now follow their routes in the service of other rogue mechanoids. The units were designed to self-destruct if attacked, and will explode with enough force to cause damage.
Rezbit The Rezbit, though small, is a tough opponent. Its weapon system is potent, capable of firing bursts or beams at targets. A barrier shield blocks incoming attacks. It can also shift into an energy state to evade enemies: while in this state it can transmit a powerful virus into mechanoids and armor systems. The virus can cripple your systems for a time, leaving you vulnerable.
Serenity Class Drone The Serenity drones have not gone rogue. The units are defenseless, have no weapons, and cannot be eaten. These qualities make them useless to the Ing. The small drones are assigned simple maintenance tasks upon creation and perform them without hesitation until reassigned or destroyed.


Name Log contents
Caretaker Class Drone The Caretaker drone was designed to protect and maintain an experimental energy chamber. It uses electrically charged limbs to perform its duties. The drone requires sensor updates to fight: a vulnerable detection unit will extend periodically to search for targets. Destroying this unit would weaken its combat ability.
Growler Class Turret The GM-42 "Growler" Class Turret is a dated design, though still quite effective as a point-defense system. It is lightly armored, and fast-moving targets can evade its tracking system. Several copies of the system exist, including the Space Pirate "Humility" Class automated turret.
Humility Class Turret The Space Pirates copied captured Federation "Growler" turrets, but found the cannon unit inadequate. The replaced the Growler's weapon with a powerful galvanic accelerator cannon. The "Humility" turret packs a strong punch, but retains the Growler system's weaknesses. Fast targets can evade the crude targeting system, and the armor can't take much punishment.
Luminoth Turret As the number of Luminoth warriors dwindled, they turned to machines to protect key areas. Automated gun turrets were often the first line of defense against Ing attacks. Though powerful, they weren't nimble enough to deal with agile enemy targets.
Vigilance Class Turret The "Vigilance" Class Turret is found in many Space Pirate bases. Built to support the "Humility" Class Turret, it is as accurate as the gunner operating it. Many young Space Pirates begin their careers as sentries: a tour as a Vigilance gunner is considered a mark of distinction.

Dark Aether[edit]



Name Log contents
Dark Blogg Dark Blogg somehow lose their sonic blast ability: something about their minds makes them difficult for 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 The Phlogus waits patiently as it floats in murky waters, searching for a meal. When the seismic sensors in its epidermis are triggered, it springs open rapidly to attack. Phlogi 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.

Darkling Flyers[edit]

Name Log contents
Dark Shredder The hardy Shredder is a favorite possession target for Ing that dwell near dark water. Dark Shredders can lurk in the venomous liquid indefinitely, patiently waiting for prey. When agitated, it will emerge and begin to fly toward its foe. They are very resilient, but can be eliminated with concentrated weapons fire.
Dark War Wasp 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 their mettle in the War Wasp, these Ing often graduate to the control of larger, deadlier creatures.
Nightbarb 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.

Darkling Ground[edit]

Name Log contents
Dark Alpha Splinter 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 Grenchler 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 the back shell with explosive blasts to expose its pain center, then attack the pain center to quickly dispatch the creature.
Dark Splinter Target is host to a parasitic bioform. The presence of the parasite increases the target's overall combat threat level. Concentrated weapons fire will damage the target.

Darkling Mechanoids[edit]

Name Log contents
Corrupted Sentreye The Sentreyes were designed by the Luminoth to protect their camps on Dark Aether. The Ing learned how to possess them and turn them on 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. Only charged light energy will destroy them.
Dark Diligence Drone Some Diligence drones have been taken by the Ing for possession duties. Their small size and durability makes them excellent scouts, able to go where most others 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 Ingsmasher 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 shield in battle that can be adjusted to protect against a variety of beam weapons. The shield can be overloaded by opposite-polarity beams.
Dark Quad CM The Ing discovered they could possess and control artificially intelligent machines as well as living beings. They soon turned the loyal Quad drones against the Luminoth, finding the tenacious machines to be quite useful additions to the Horde. A dominant darkling assumes control of the Command Module, forcing the lesser Ing in the Main Body to do its bidding.
Dark Quad MB The Ing discovered they could possess and control artificially intelligent machines as well as living beings. They soon turned the loyal Quad drones against the Luminoth, finding the tenacious machines to be quite useful additions to the Horde.

Darkling Offworld[edit]

Name Log contents
Dark Missile Trooper Bioscans indicate terminated lifesigns in this missile trooper, and the presence of an unknown biomass with parasitic tendencies. Though the missile trooper's armor has been compromised, the bulk of it remains intact. Missile weapon system remains online as well. Full parasitic fusion has yet to be obtained, resulting in low agility and response time.
Dark Pirate Commando The Ing prize the few Pirate Commandos they manage to take alive. Only Hunter Ing are allowed to possess the Commandos, and the competition for that right is fierce among them. The Hunter Ing ability to phase out of local timespace carries over to the Dark Pirate Commando. They will fire bursts of dark matter at enemies, along with experimental EMP grenades stolen from the Space Pirates.
Dark Pirate Trooper Pirate troopers, already trained to follow orders without question, were perfect candidates for Ing possession. Darklings moves 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 gadgetry of any kind - especially weapon systems.
Dark Preed 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 Tallon Metroid The Ing are fascinated by Metroids and their connection to Phazon. It is not a shared fascination, as Metroids will attack Ing on sight. Recognizing their strength, Ing darklings have possessed a number of Metroids, turning them into powerful soldiers of the Horde.
Dark Trooper Bioscans indicate terminated lifesigns in this trooper, and the presence of an unknown biomass with parasitic tendencies. Though the trooper's armor has been compromised, 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.

Emperor Ing[edit]

Name Log contents
Emperor Ing Body Bioscans indicate that this is the eldest, strongest Ing in the Horde, the alpha and 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 Chrysalis The heavily damaged Emperor Ing has entered a regenerative state inside a durable healing shell. Tactical scans have detected eleven weak points on the magnetically charged shell: Spider Ball travel is possible on the shell surface. Damage the weak spots with explosives to crack the shell and expose the enemy within.
Emperor Ing Eye The Emperor Ing has exposed its main eye, from which it can fire powerful energy beams. It is protected by a barrier shield, although not completely. The eye can be locked onto, but only direct shots will get past the shield.
Emperor Ing Head Like its brethren, 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 shield and a weapon. Destroy the tentacles it generates to weaken the creature and its defenses.
Mutated Emperor Ing Further exposure to Phazon has mutated the Emperor Ing. It is now capable of shielding its vulnerable areas with energy barriers. Beams of opposite polarity can damage these barriers, however. Heavy damage to the barriers will cause them to drop, exposing the creature's weak spots. Target the weak spots to immobilize and damage the enemy.



Name Log contents
Amorbis 1 The enormous 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 they can find in their domain. They are vulnerable to all forms of weapons fire, but are incredibly strong and resistant to pain.
Amorbis 2 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 this energy into powerful beam attacks. Bioscans indicate a weak spot inside the creature's mouth. Concentrate your fire at this area to damage an Amorbis.


Name Log contents
Chykka 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 attempt to dive and ram you. Most of the Chykka's body is vulnerable to weapons fire, but scans indicate that such fire will only stun it. When stunned, however, four weak spots will appear. These spots are vulnerable to attack: target them to damage the enemy.
Chykka Larva Scans indicate that this bioform is an infant, but aging rapidly. The creature can ensnare targets with its tongue, drawing them into its mouth. It then covers its prey with acidic globs of biomatter to break it down for digestion. This is an exceptional bioform with both a dark and light nature.
Chyklings Interaction with dark energy has mutated the Chykka. Its offspring are now born as flyers, skipping the larval stage completely. These infants are highly protective of their parent, and will streak to attack on sight. They lack their parent's durability, however, making them easy targets.
Dark Chykka The Chykka has recovered, and energized its body with dark energy. This energy has rendered most of the creature immune to attack, including its wings. Tactical scans indicate that its eggsac is vulnerable, however. Target it to damage the creature.


Name Log contents
Damaged Quadraxis Though the main body is disabled, the tactical control unit within it is still active. It will guide the Head Module in battle via high-sonic transmissions. Disabling this module will impair the Head Module's ability to fight.
Final Head Module Module has lost its tactical link to the main body. Two points of structural weakness have been located on its hull: Morph Ball Bombs can cause damage to these areas. Scans indicate that the Spider Ball can attach to the Module's outer hull.
Quadraxis 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 battery for long-distance attacks. The Quadraxis is incredibly durable and well-armored, but its leg and foot joints are vulnerable. Damaging these joints will eventually render it immobile.
Shielded Head Module The Head Module of the Quadraxis is highly mobile and well armed. It is shielded by an impervious force field. Tactical commands are sent to the module from the crippled main body: sever this link to impair the Head Module's combat ability.
Stunned Head Module Head Module is unable to receive 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.

Sub Guardians[edit]

Name Log contents
Bomb Guardian This darkling Sandigger has absorbed the ability to generate Morph Ball Bombs. It can throw Bombs with considerable accuracy, and frequently lays a spread of Bombs in its wake. Its head and tail are the only vulnerable spots on its body. Target them when they are vulnerable to neutralize and terminate this enemy.
Boost Guardian This Warrior Ing has absorbed the power of the Boost Ball. It can boost-blast toward its enemies, using its body as a potent weapon. When it is not in solid form, engaging it in Morph Ball mode may provide better attack opportunities.
Grapple Guardian This darkling Grenchler has absorbed the power of the Grapple Beam. It will fire the beam to snare potential meals and pull them into its waiting jaws. The beam is powerful, and can attach to most surfaces, including your armor. Its eye region is sensitive: damage in the area can induce a state of anger in the target. A weak spot under the back shell is a prime target as well. When angered, it will use a special attack.
Jump Guardian This Warrior Ing has absorbed the power of the Space Jump Boots. It can leap incredible distances and heights, and uses this ability to great effect in battle. Target can generate powerful shock waves of dark energy, and will sheath itself in a potent force field to protect itself. It cannot maintain the shield indefinitely: concentrate weapon fire on it when the shield is down.
Power Bomb Guardian This darkling Sporb has absorbed the ability to generate Power Bombs. It can fire these dangerous weapons instead of the venomous needles it normally shoots. The energies of the Power Bomb weapon have made it all but invulnerable. Tremendous kinetic damage will override the protective field, however.
Spider Guardian This darkling Pillbug has absorbed the power of the Spider Ball. It can travel over magnetically charged surfaces at will. The creature seems to have a connection to the local energy system. Aggravating it may cause disruption to the system.


Name Log contents
Darkling Tentacle Some darklings can open dimensional portals at will. They use this ability to hunt for unwary prey, reaching out to snatch them with their tentacles. Once ensnared, the prey is dragged to its doom. The tentacles are resilient: pure light energy can disrupt them. Nothing can destroy them.
Hunter Ing The Hunter Ing patrol the lands of Dark Aether in search of the Horde's enemies. They can render their bodies intangible, allowing them to ambush their targets with ease. Hunter Ing can generate long, deadly tentacles, which they use with great effect in battle. Cunning and relentless, the Hunter Ing will seize their prey or die.
Ing Larva Swarm Ing larvae travel in swarms for protection. They are weak, with no real defenses or attacks. The few that make it to adulthood are quite cunning and vicious.
Inglet Inglets perform the menial labor of the Horde, but can be pressed into a combat role if there is need. They are amorphous blobs, capable of clinging to nearly any surface. Inglets can fire bursts of dark matter in self-defense, though they prefer to avoid battle. They seldom travel alone, and can be dangerous in large numbers. As with all Ings, they dislike bright light, and will avoid it if possible.
Ingstorm The Ingstorm is a collective swarm of tiny Ing. When banded together, they can emit destructive energy that, over time, can break down the most durable of alloys.
Warrior Ing Warrior Ing are challenging foes. They can render themselves into amorphous puddles and move over most terrain, including walls. Warrior Ing can turn their bodies into deadly projectiles sheathed in dark energy. The tips of their legs are razor sharp, making them formidable in melee. Finally, Warrior Ing are capable of channeling transdimensional energy and firing it at their enemies. Their only real weakness is bright, pure light, which they hate and fear.


Dark Samus[edit]

Name Log contents
Dark Samus 1 Scans indicate the presence of Phazon and your genetic material within this entity. She wears a version of the Varia Suit, altered and augmented by the Phazon within her. Primary weapons include the Missile Launcher and a scattershot variant of the Power Beam. Boost and Jump abilities are superior to yours. The ability to generate Phazon energy shields is also present.
Dark Samus 2 Tactical scans have identified several new battle systems in the armor of Dark Samus. She now wields a potent variant of your Charge Beam. Her Boost attack has been augmented, and the ability to render herself invisible is present as well. Bioscans suggest that Dark Samus can reform her body short of total atomic disruption. Extreme caution recommended.
Dark Samus 3 Scans indicate that Dark Samus has absorbed tremendous levels of Phazon into her body: too much, perhaps. She can vent Phazon energy in the form of destructive blasts and protective shields: doing so will help her maintain stability. Exposure to Phazon has rendered her invisible to the Dark Visor. These new abilities, combined with her already formidable arsenal, place Dark Samus at the highest threat level.
Dark Samus 4 Dark Samus has temporarily become a being of pure yet unstable Phazon energy. She can generate a shield that is invulnerable to all attacks, save one - blasts of Phazon energy itself. Use your Charge Beam to collect Phazon energy that she expels, then fire it back at her. Direct hits will overload and disrupt her essence.


Name Log contents
Infant Tallon Metroid The Space Pirates use infant Tallon Metroids as a portable energy source. Small in size, they are easy to transport in large quantities. They are docile, efficient organic batteries...until they are exposed to Phazon. At that point, they grow rapidly and acquire their full array of powers.
Tallon Metroid Space Pirates harvest and enslave Metroids for use in their operations. The Tallon Metroid will latch onto prey with powerful pincers, then proceed to drain its life energy. This causes the creature to grow in size and mass. The creatures are vulnerable to the chilling effect of dark energy, and can be detached by entering Morph Ball mode and deploying a Bomb.


Name Log contents
Pirate Aerotrooper Pirate Aerotroopers are known for their cold precision and utter cruelty. Armed with both beam and missile systems, the Aerotroopers can be a difficult foe to engage, especially at range. Their jet packs can be overloaded with heat-based attacks, however. These units prefer death before dishonor: an injured Aerotrooper will make a suicide strike before allowing himself to be captured.
Pirate Commando Dedicated to "hunting the Hunter," Space Pirate Commando units have been equipped with the latest weapons, including a variable pulse cannon, e-grenade launcher, and energy scythe. Powerful thrusters carry them at high speed over any terrain. A portable barrier shield repels most attacks, but can only be deployed for limited periods.
Pirate Grenadier The Space Pirates have begun to use an experimental energy grenade launcher in the field. The weapon is viewed as a mixed blessing to the Grenadier units: while the grenade launchers are powerful weapons, Grenadiers must leave their rifles behind to carry them. Fast-moving targets can close range on Grenadiers, rendering their main weapons somewhat ineffective.
Pirate Trooper The Space Pirates suffered a serious defeat at Tallon IV, yet they remain a powerful force for crime and disorder in the galaxy. Their technology continues to advance: even the lowly trooper has received numerous upgrades to his arsenal. A photonic power scythe and quantum assault cannon are now standard-issue weapons for all troopers.
Preed The cybernetic Preeds are aggressive hunters used as patrol animals by the Space Pirates. They carry lethal Nohadin gas for use as a defense mechanism. If a Preed is ruptured, the gas within it is violently released. This toxic cloud often proves fatal to the Preed's killer.
