Eject is a power-up present in the Blast Ball mode and Campaign of Metroid Prime: Federation Force. If acquired, the opposing team's players will be ejected from their Mechs, rendering them temporarily defenseless. Outside their Mechs, contestants in Blast Ball matches are unable to shoot back or defend their goal post until they re-enter their Mechs, enabling the other team to score goals more easily. The item is represented by a green, vertical arrow. As with the other power-ups, this is acquired by repeatedly shooting the ball, and picking it up. There is no way to avoid an ejection once the power-up has been collected, unless a contestant has the Shield item.
There is a way to protect the goal if one team is about to be affected by the Eject item - by positioning themselves in front of their net, the Indigo or Gold team can block the other team from scoring goals until they can get back into their Mechs. If an Eject is used by the opposite team right as a match ends, the cutscenes that follow with each player cheering or losing will be split in half as if it is being viewed with double vision. The message "Get back in your Mech!" will flash as the game is saving and moves onto the Results Screen.
Ejection pods[edit | edit source]

In M06: Infiltration, a Campaign mission, the Federation Force uses a similar mechanism to leave their Mechs, as they cannot infiltrate a weapon factory with them. This is done by interacting with ejection pods dropped outside the factory's entrance. After the command computer has been used to set off the facility's Self-Destruct System, the Force can get back into their Mechs to battle advancing Space Pirates.
