Hidden Court is a room in Bryyo Cliffside. It appears in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.


The room is a large, open-topped hall in the Bryyo Cliffside region. It contains various forms of Fuel Gel, which sits around the room in pools that are sustained by a miniature Fuel Gel fall to the right of the room. Some of these pools have devices in them left behind by the Galactic Federation that process the Fuel Gel. This room is notable for its War Golem, restrained by Skkale vines, and also a Half-pipe structure behind it.


Upon entering the room, Samus will be attacked by two Warp Hounds. Once Samus defeats them, she must find a way to free the War Golem.

First, Samus must activate a Bomb Slot in front of it. The War Golem will try and move but it is unable due to the Skkale vines. Samus must search for the other ends of the vines, hidden throughout the room and destroy them to free the golem.

The golem's right foot can be freed by triggering the slot as a metal hatch covering it pops open, revealing the rope's end. Its left foot is hidden in a Morph Ball tunnel directly to its left; Samus must freeze pouring Fuel Gel and cross over it. The rope's end is located inside a tunnel. The right hand is tied behind a wall of Brinstone located on the left of where Samus entered the room. Finally, the left hand is located near a GF Fuel Gel pumping crane, on the right of the entrance to the room. Samus must set the vine ablaze by igniting a small spout of Fuel Gel.

After all four vines are destroyed, Samus needs to activate the Bomb Slot to activate the War Golem. It then picks up the gear shape object that contains the Bomb Slot and move it to a higher area in the room, creating a Half-pipe.

This pipe can be used later to acquire a Missile Expansion once she has the Boost Ball. An Energy Cell can be found in this room once she has the Ship Grapple Beam. Samus acquires this Energy Cell by picking up an Energy Generator in the North Jungle Court. Samus must then make her way toward the Hidden Court and place the generator inside a machine to give the machine power. The machine will activate and reveal the Energy Cell, which Samus can collect.
