Energy Parts are a new item in Metroid: Other M. They are pieces that form into one Energy Tank. Four Energy Parts are necessary to form one Energy Tank. There are a total of sixteen in the game, meaning Samus can gain four Energy Tanks from the Energy Parts. They have an orange color.
"Collect four of these to create one Energy Tank."
Collect 4 and your energy capacity will increase.
You’ve collected 4 Energy Parts and your max energy has increased.
- Energy Parts are similar in concept to the Pieces of Heart in the Legend of Zelda series.
- While Energy Parts are a new item, the idea of forming one Energy Tank is not a novel idea in the series. In Hard Mode in Metroid: Zero Mission, Samus must collect two Energy Tanks to create one full tank.
- Interestingly, when 4 Energy Parts are collected, Samus will not fully recover her energy as she would with a new whole tank, but rather, restore her energy by a full tank.
