Beta Acid in Metroid: Zero Mission

Beta Acid[1] is a highly corrosive substance found in Metroid Fusion and Metroid: Zero Mission.

Description[edit | edit source]

Beta Acid is a teal, bubbling liquid, visually distinguishing it from standard acid in Zero Mission. It is highly potent and will drain Samus Aran's energy even while she is wearing the Gravity Suit.

Beta Acid's first chronological appearance is in Zero Mission. It floods the Zebesian Command Center after it is destroyed by a Self-Destruct System, replacing the lava that was previously found in the room.

This substance is not present in the ruined Zebesian Command Center in Super Metroid, which could suggest that it dried up or was drained from the room. However, Super Metroid does feature the functionally-identical scalding-hot lava in both Tourian bases; since this lava is referred to as acid in other languages, it could therefore potentially be intended as the same substance as Beta Acid despite the different color.

Beta Acid is also present aboard the Biologic Space Laboratories research station. It is found exclusively in several corridors in the Tourian-like area of Sector 1 (SRX), including the room before Neo-Ridley's chamber.
