A Dark Temple Key

A Dark Temple Key is used in order to gain access to the temples in Dark Agon Wastes, Dark Torvus Bog, and Ing Hive across Dark Aether. They only appear in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. There are a total of nine keys, three in each area, all located in Dark Aether. They resemble floating gyroscopes with crimson jewels at their centers.

When obtained, the Key Attainment Jingle is heard. In the Wii versions of Echoes, a Silver Credit will be rewarded for each key acquired. This also happens in Metroid Prime when a Chozo Artifact is obtained.

Dark Temple Keys do not count toward the game's item percentage. The Sky Temple is instead guarded with Sky Temple Keys, of which there are 10 in total.
