Big Aeion Orb

A Big Aeion Orb in the hands of a Chozo Statue.

A Big Aeion Orb (named in the Map icon legend) is a stationary orb that completely restores Samus's Aeion Gauge upon contact. These orbs appear throughout SR388 in Metroid: Samus Returns, and are similar to the Big Energy Ball from Metroid II: Return of Samus, which fully restores Samus's energy. Aeion Orbs are often found close to stations or elevators in Samus Returns. After power-ups and Aeion abilities have been collected, Big Aeion Orbs will replace them in the hands of Chozo Statues and the mouths of Aeion Ability Artifacts.

  • These reappear after a certain amount of time, so you can keep picking them up."
