- This article is about the theme. For the area itself, see Chozo Ruins (Zebes).
Description[edit | edit source]
This theme plays through most of the Chozo Ruins located on the surface of Crateria. Specifically, it plays in the Chozo temple where Samus Aran acquires the Power Grip and the area to the right of Samus Aran's Gunship. However, in the section of the Chozo Ruins that leads to Chozodia, a different theme plays instead. This theme also plays in the elevator rooms in Brinstar and Norfair that lead to Kraid's Lair and Ridley's Lair, respectively.
This theme consists largely of heavy drumbeats, the sound of wind, a low male choir chant, and various ambient effects. This minimalist approach gives the area an empty and desolate vibe. The practice of using a low choir fits the motif of other Chozo songs in Zero Mission and Metroid Prime.
