The Corrupted Pool is a room in Bryyo Fire in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. It is a cavern with a large lake of liquid Blue Phazon, with a Grapple Swing Point that allows Samus to reach the other side, which is higher. The lake allows Samus to refill her energy using the PED Suit. This room is also where Samus experiences her first Phazon Overload, after shooting some Phazon vines. Samus is forced to vent out excessive Phazon or die of Terminal Corruption. Aurora Unit 242 contacts her immediately after the Overload asking if she is all right and promising to investigate the incident further. 242 later contacts Samus again and reveals that the Overload was the result of an unforeseen error in the development of her PED Suit: if she remains in Hypermode for too long, the Phazon in her body will overreact and begin to corrupt her if she does not vent it out successfully or the Suit's Auto Vent does not kick in.
