Energy-siphon system

The energy-siphon system is used by all Elite Pirates in Metroid Prime to absorb Samus' beam shots. According to the scan of the Elite's Plasma Artillery Cannon, it is connected to the energy-siphon system to augment performance. The Omega Pirate also wields it.

Elite Pirate Logbook entryEdit

Elite Pirate

Metroid Prime

Logbook entry

Elite Pirate, Phazon-enhanced Space Pirate. Incredibly strong, armored, and well armed. Elite pirates are potent foes. Their energy-siphon system absorbs Beam weapons shots, which they use to fuel a massive Plasma Artillery Cannon. The nature of this system makes them vulnerable to concussion-based weapons. Well armed, the Elite Pirate is effective in close combat and at a distance. Their massive size can be a weakness, and their sluggish speed allows for evasion and quick attacks.

Plasma Artillery Cannon scanEdit

"Plasma Artillery Cannon. Unit has extreme thermal signature due to lack of shielding. Cannon connected to energy-siphon systems to augment performance. Avoid Beam weapon fire when energy-siphon unit is active."
