For other uses, see Crypt (Disambiguation).

The Crypt is a room in the Dark Torvus Bog. It appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.


There is a Portal in the room. A cannon firing a laser at a wall in a state of transdimensional flux can be rotated with a Spinner to activate a device back in the Gathering Hall on Aether. An indestructible shield energized by Light energy blocks access to Undertransit One, however if this room is entered from said area, the shield can be disabled which will also activate a few platforms leading towards the upper chambers of this room. The room also features several Ingsphere Caches and a flooded half-pipe in the middle with a bridge going over it.

The Aether version of this room is Gathering Hall.
