Aeion Orbs are a new pick-up in Metroid: Samus Returns, similar to the Energy Capsules of past games. They are small, floating orbs of Aeion that restore Samus's Aeion Gauge. Aeion Orbs are dropped from enemies that are killed or countered. Their gold color contrasts with the purple Energy Capsules, and are much more plentiful than Energy Capsules — even appearing when Samus's Aeion Gauge is full. There are also Big Aeion Orbs in certain locations that fully restore Aeion.
