The Imperial Hall is a room in the Bryyo Fire region of Bryyo that appears in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Several enemies can be found in this room; Shelbugs appear if Samus is coming from the Fiery Airdock and Bryyonian Shriekbats if she is coming from elsewhere.
Description[edit | edit source]
There are two "levels" in this room, an upper and a lower. On the lower, torches adorn the walls and Fuel Gel flows underneath the floors, which have two breaks in them, leaving Samus to take damage should she fall in without the Hazard Shield. On the upper level, there is path to a Missile Expansion that is blocked by a network of vines that can be passed with a Morph Ball tunnel and a series of ledges, from which it is easy to fall to the lower level. Statues of Bryyonian rulers can also be found here. These include Oamus I, Kilnnh II, Andest I, Vymsz II, Amtti VI and Hixxn I, to name a few.

Design[edit | edit source]
Matt Manchester, the designer of the Imperial Hall, has posted design notes for the room on his personal blog. Originally, the room's scans were intended to contain an elaborate mythology believed within Reptilicus society.
"This was one of my favorite rooms to make. Again, working of off Ben Sprout's original Bryyo statue, I made a series of busts to display throughout the room. Sort of like a hall of heroes, or hall of gods. While making this room, I wrote brief mythologies for each head, and put together a loose history... These descriptions didn't make it into the final game."
