Hive Reactor is a room in Ing Hive from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. It is exactly like its light counterpart, except it lacks the Spider Ball Tracks and it has Inglets instead of Rezbits. At the bottom is a Dark Ingsmasher.

The Aetherian version of this room is Reactor Core.

"Object scan complete.
Unit is part of a reactor-maintenance system.
These servomechanisms continue to function...barely. Radiation levels and exposure to local atmosphere has severely impaired their ability to function. Continued exposure will lead to shutdown."

Unit is part of the reactor control system.
Unit is offline. Exposure to the effects of Dark Aether's atmosphere has damaged the pod's control matrix. Unable to access system controls."
