- This article is about doors that can only be opened with the Nova Beam. For other uses, see Green Door (Disambiguation).
The Green Door, also known as the Nova Beam Door, is a door found in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. The shield generated around the door is only vulnerable to a High-Frequency Beam, so the Nova Beam is the sole weapon capable of deactivating the shield. They are used to block off high priority areas such as the Aurora Chamber on the G.F.S. Valhalla, and the Command Station Pirate Homeworld.
They only appear on the Space Pirate Homeworld and the G.F.S. Valhalla, indicating that the Nova Beam is a very new technology, as they never appeared on Bryyo or Elysia, both with age old doors. Interestingly, the G.F.S. Olympus does not contain any known Green Doors, though this is likely for gameplay reasons as it is only accessible at an early point in the game.
