List of rooms in Super Metroid

Corridor No. 1[]

Main article: Corridor No. 1

Koma SM.png

Corridor No. 1 is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. It previously appeared in Metroid and Metroid: Zero Mission as the first room of those games. In Super Metroid, a working elevator was placed sometime during the events of the Metroid Prime series or SR-388 incident. It takes Samus to the Starting Point from the desolate ruins of the original Tourian, the latter of which are now considered a part of Crateria. The Morph Ball is curiously in the exact same place it was before, but after acquiring it, an Eye mechanism shines a light on Samus.

There is also now a Fake Block under the rock formation. As Samus returns to Crateria, the Koma statues that were stationary in her first adventure become active. Upon returning to Crateria, Samus discovers that the Space Pirates are waiting for her in an ambush. While exploring the jungle section of Brinstar (or returning here with the Power Bomb, Samus will find a Yellow Hatch that leads behind the left wall of Corridor No. 1. She is locked in the room until she kills three Sidehoppers. Using Power Bombs twice will reveal a Power Bomb Tank.

Fake Block shaft[]

Main article: Fake Block shaft

Fake Block shaft in Super Metroid.png

The "Fake Block shaft" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. It previously appeared in Metroid and Metroid: Zero Mission as the second room of those games. In Super Metroid, the room retains its general appearance from Metroid, but adds two Koma heads to each side of the long platform above the floor. It has become desolate in the years since the Zero Mission, and is empty when Samus first arrives. Two Zoomers are present if Samus returns here after being detected by the Eye scanners in the adjacent rooms.

Samus can crouch and shoot to break all of the Fake Blocks in the platform, without using the Wave Beam. The two fake platforms below are retained, but the room is much shorter and the door to Kraid's Lair is no longer accessible. There are two Koma heads in the shaft as well, and there appear to be pipes and bricks in the walls of the room. There is now an overhang to the left with a crevice underneath that Samus can fit through with the Morph Ball. Through here is a door to a small room with a Chozo Statue holding the game's first Missile Tank.

Missile chamber[]

SM Brinstar Missile Tank 1.gif

The "Missile chamber" is a small room on the bottom left of the Fake Block shaft. It did not exist in the original Metroid or in Zero Mission. It is a simple, small chamber made entirely of metal bricks, blocks and pipes, with a rocky blue wall in the background. A Chozo Statue is found in the left corner of the room, holding the first Missile Tank of the game. Samus needs them in order to access the overhang corridor.

A screenshot of this room is featured in Volumes 3 and 7 of the Metroid Dread Report, in the section about the Chozo (Vol. 3) and Chozo remnants (Vol. 7).

Overhang corridor - Super Metroid.png

The "overhang corridor" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. It previously appeared in Metroid and Metroid: Zero Mission as the third room of those games. In Super Metroid, the room has become desolate since the Zero Mission, and does not need to be entered to advance the mission. It retains its general appearance from Metroid, but with a darker blue hue, and it adds three Koma heads to the room: one in the ceiling and on the entrance ledge, and then one behind the overhang. The shaft that connected to the rest of Brinstar from here is no longer accessible and has been replaced by a solid wall. A Missile Tank can now be found here, as well as a second Eye scanner (after that found in Corridor No. 1) in front of the overhang.

If Samus returns to the room after she is attacked by Space Pirates, it will now be populated by Skrees and Zoomers. Using a Power Bomb will destroy two rows of tiles on the overhang and expose a shaft, which Samus can ascend with a well-timed Shinespark to reach a previously inaccessible corridor.

Green Brinstar Main Shaft[]

Brinstar-Crateria jungle elevator.png

The "Green Brinstar Main Shaft" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. This serves as the entrance to the main area of Brinstar, and in particular the green jungle region. It is not the first room Samus visits in Brinstar as a whole, given that she revisits the first three rooms of "old Brinstar" before coming here. During her mission, this room serves as a main hub for her exploration of Brinstar. It connects directly to a Save Room, the room where the Early Super Missiles technique can be performed, and the Dachora's room. It also connects indirectly to Brinstar's Map Computer and the area's only Missile Charge.

In terms of appearance, this room is a long vertical shaft of mostly organic material. The walls appear to be formed out of thick, green thorns, with multiple midair and wall-mounted ledges made of a green moss-looking material. At the very bottom of the shaft is a floor composed of Power Bomb Blocks; when destroyed later in the game, a secret undershaft is exposed. This has more platforms and a Locked Door that cannot be entered from this side. Samus can continue from here into a shaft populated by the Etecoons, who teach her to Wall Jump. If she Wall Jumps up to the top of the shaft, she can re-enter the undershaft of the Main Shaft through the locked door, which is open on the Etecoons' side. If Samus is unable to Wall Jump to the door, a hidden tunnel in the Etecoon shaft provides an alternate escape route, allowing her to leave the area.

The "Green Brinstar Fireflea Room" is a large, dimly lit vertical room to the left of the Main Shaft. Five Firefleas provide the only light source in this room. Samus must make use of midair platforms to avoid spikes on much of the floor below and cross to the other end. In doing so, she must avoid touching or shooting any Firefleas as it will kill them and gradually darken the room. It leads into Brinstar's only Missile Charge room.

This room is witnessed in one of the game's attract mode clips. In it, Samus shoots one Fireflea before jumping to a lower platform and aiming at another.

Early Supers Room.png

The "Early Supers Room" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. This room is notable for being the location of the Early Super Missiles technique. This room is the first to be found on the left of the "Green Brinstar Main Shaft". It is a horizontal corridor with a long green bridge stretching to the end of the room. The bridge is partially made of Pit Blocks, which will crumble if Samus does not dash over them. Even then, there are three shutters that will close in front of her as she runs. Under normal circumstances, the Speed Booster is required to run fast enough to beat the shutters. The door at the end of the Early Supers Room has a Super Missile Tank, which if obtained early negates the need to fight Spore Spawn.

Directly to the right of the last shutter in the ceiling is a pair of Fake Blocks, which Camus can shoot to access an artificial upper walkway. This area is infested with enemies, but has a Super Missile Tank at its end. After collecting it, Samus can step onto its pedestal to be dropped back to the entrance below, as the pedestal is a Pit Block.

A Chozo Statue is in immediate view upon entry, holding a Reserve Tank. Samus can roll through the pipe under the statue to find a Missile Tank in plain sight, and then Bomb the wall beside it a few times to find a second Missile expansion.

Dachora's room[]

Main article: Dachora's room

DachoraSM.png

The "Dachora's room" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. The room is a long corridor set in Brinstar's pink region. It connects directly to the massive "pink shaft" in central Brinstar, and the entrance shaft of Brinstar. Throughout the corridor's background are numerous plant stalks with bulbs, as well as mysterious bush or pod-like objects. The floor is inconsistently flat, with a few ramps along it. Near the center is a solid wall, which can be destroyed with Bombs, and later a Power Bomb or the Speed Booster. On Samus's initial visit, there is little to do in this room besides proceed through it into the pink shaft.

Later, if Samus revisits the room after collecting the Speed Booster, it becomes possible for her to fall into a "trap". If she runs across the floor close to the destructible wall until the Speed Booster activates, she will break through part of the floor, which consists of Boost Blocks, and fall down a long shaft. This leads to another stretch of hallway, at the end of which is the friendly Dachora creature and its egg. It is not possible for Samus to interact with the egg, and it remains part of the scenery, ultimately hatching at some point before Metroid Fusion. The Dachora provides a hidden tutorial for the Shinespark, running back and forth across the lower hallway and then jumping up the shaft at full power. Samus can practice doing the same. Should she run low on energy, there is an Energy Charge through a door on the left down here.

While the Dachora will usually not follow Samus through the Boost Block floor at the top of the shaft, it is possible for it to escape the shaft along with her. This can be done if Samus Shinesparks at the same time and in the same place as the Dachora. She will fly up first, followed by it. Above the shaft, it will simply run left and back, Shinespark upward, and repeat. A demonstration of this can be viewed here.

The Dachora later escapes this room on its own and somehow ends up in the chamber where Samus fought a Torizo. She can free it and three Etecoons during the end countdown sequence. While optional, this scene is canon as the creatures reappear - along with the Dachora's hatched chick - in Metroid Fusion.

Samus encountering the Dachora is depicted in one of the clips played as part of the attract mode.

Pink shaft[]

Main article: Pink shaft

Pink shaft.png

The "pink shaft" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. The pink shaft is one of the largest rooms in Brinstar, and perhaps the entire game. It connects to multiple other areas of Brinstar, including the "Red Soil" and green jungle regions. Flakes of an unknown material fall indefinitely in this room, as they do in other "pink" Brinstar rooms. Multiple ledges formed out of the natural pink soil are found, outstretched from walls on either side. The pink shaft is first entered from a door near the top. Immediately above this is a ledge with an Air Hole that spawns Zebs indefinitely. This leads to a series of steps in the right wall, leading up to another walkway, another pair of ledges, and another walkway with another Air Hole spawning Zebs. To the left is a ledge on the wall with a Bomb Block at its base. Behind this block is a door to a Save Room. Adjacent to this is an exit into the room that precedes Spore Spawn.

When Samus has the Super Missiles in hand, she can return via the "pipeworks" into this room. From there she exits into a small alcove with a Super Missile Block in front of a tunnel leading back into the shaft. If Samus obtains the Super Missiles early via Sequence Breaking, she can carefully fire a Super Missile into the tunnel. If she is lucky, the Missile will destroy the block, allowing her to collect Spore Spawn's Super Missiles without fighting the creature at all.

Directly under the entrance walkway is a line of Grapple Points, which can be used when Samus has the Grappling Beam to reach a Missile Tank. Alternatively, Samus can Wall Jump up the outstretched wall in front of the expansion. Should Samus fall, she will fall into a "pit" below that she must Wall Jump out of via a thin wall on the right. Under the tank is a wall that can be destroyed with a Power Bomb. Samus can then jump into a wall to enter an invisible open door to another room with a Power Bomb Tank.

As she drops to the base of the shaft, Samus will find another Missile Tank on the lower left and a large square-shaped wall to her right. She can lay Bombs at the base of this wall and roll into the gap to drop down to a chamber with a Chozo Statue. The statue holds the Charge Beam. Returning here after the Power Bombs, Samus can detonate one to destroy a block in the pipe under the statue, allowing her to enter it. This leads into a passage behind the statue that ends with a door into a room with another Energy Tank.

The "Kihunter nesting grounds" is a green jungle corridor with a lower floor. It exits into the Spore Spawn's room through a door in the ceiling. It is partially constructed from brambles, as seen in the ceiling and right wall. Thin reeds with small flowers can be seen in the background. The room's name originates from the presence of three Kihunters in it, and three sets of curious egg-like objects hanging from the exit, which may represent Kihunter eggs that would hatch into Zeros. When Samus enters the room, the doors will lock until she kills the Kihunters, after which she can proceed into the Spore Spawn's chamber.

Spore Spawn Room[]

Main article: Spore Spawn Room

Spore Spawn.png

The "Spore Spawn Room" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. In this room, Samus encounters a mini-boss, Spore Spawn. This room is close in proximity to a Save Station, and the exit is directly connected to the room with the first Super Missile Tank (without Sequence Breaking to get them early). It is a tall and thin shaft with two halves. The second half is inaccessible until the Spore Spawn is killed.

The first half is square and features a floor of dense vegetation, with a network of vines running up the walls and across the ceiling. Each side of this part of the room has a ledge. The corner of these ledges connected to the walls is a useful place to crouch and avoid damage. In the background is a wall of bluish vegetation with blue "blossoms". The Spore Spawn hangs from this wall. Lining the underside of the ceiling are four flower buds that create spores, which are useful during the coming battle as they drop Energy Capsules and Missile Ammo when shot.

When Samus first enters the room through the bottom door, it shuts under her and turns into a Green Hatch. The Spore Spawn awakens and then begins to fight Samus. Once the boss is killed, the entire room turns brown (including the Spore Spawn itself) and part of the ceiling explodes to reveal the second, smaller shaft, consisting of five ledges made of the same material as the floor below. These lead up to a metal ledge on the upper right, underneath the door to the next room.

SM Brinstar Super Missile Tank 1.gif

The "Super Missile drop" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. This is where the first Super Missiles in the game are obtained in the normal course of events, without Sequence Breaking. This room can only be visited (normally) after defeating Spore Spawn, and is part of the pink area of Brinstar. It is entered from the top exit of that creature's room. Initially, it appears to be a short corridor with a pit in the middle, where an Air Hole is located that spawns Zebs infinitely. Odd, bulbous growths can be seen in the background. Samus can kill the Zebs as they spawn to recover any energy and Missile Ammo lost in the battle with Spore Spawn. On the right is another Air Hole directly against the wall. Stepping onto this will reveal it is actually a pair of Pit Blocks, and Samus will fall down a very long drop, hence the room's name. This drop is lined with metal columns against the area's natural pink soil.

At the very bottom of the drop is more architecture and a Chozo Statue that holds the Super Missiles. Barring a Sequence Break that allows Samus to get an alternative Super Missile Tank, these are the first Super Missiles she acquires in Super Metroid. After this, Samus can leave through an exit on the left.

In the "pink shaft", a well-placed Super Missile (which must be obtained via Sequence Breaking) can be fired into a block offscreen, destroying it. Samus can then enter this room from the other way and obtain the Super Missiles without having to fight Spore Spawn first.

Jungle slope[]

Jungle slope.png

The "jungle slope" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. The slope is found after the large pink section of Brinstar and is among the longest hallway-type rooms in Super Metroid. It consists of eight large ledges in the left side, which are lined with five side-facing Air Holes that spawn Geegas, rafflesia-like flowers in the background and lush green vegetation. Some of the ledges slightly extend forward; these extensions are made of destructible blocks. The ceiling is lined with what appear to be leaves or spikes, although these are not harmful to Samus. At the base of the slope, Samus finds a vegetation wall, and behind it a shutter she can open using her Power Beam. This allows her to access the infamous "n00b bridge".

Notably, the slope is a junction point between all four color types of Brinstar, being green itself: "pink" Brinstar through the top left, "blue" Brinstar through the top right and "red" Brinstar through the lower right.

In speedrunning, the room is referred to as the "Green Hill Zone", which references the famous opening level from Sonic the Hedgehog.

The "n00b bridge" is an infamous room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. It is a long corridor in the jungle section of Brinstar, with a "bridge" that consists of Pit Blocks, and a ceiling lined with spikes. Apart from this, the only unique feature to the room is the abundance of red and pink bloomed flowers. The bridge cannot easily be crossed without using the dash button for speed. Barring Sequence Breaking, it is the first place in the game where the dash button is required to progress (as intended by the developers). Many new players have found themselves unable to figure this out; hence the fan name "n00b bridge".

The Green Door on the right side of the room leads to the "Red Tower", while the Blue Door on the left leads to more of Brinstar, but it cannot be accessed due to the presence of a blue Shutter in the other room.

One of the dream readings by Ariadne Yuko in the Japanese Super Metroid guide, "A Bridge Too Far", appears to be based on this room. Samus describes being unable to cross a bridge on Zebes. Yuko suggests that the bridge is preventing her from growing into adulthood, and recommends that Samus try training herself to be more feminine.

Red Tower[]

Main article: Red Tower

Red Tower.png

The "Red Tower" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. It previously appeared in Metroid and Metroid: Zero Mission as the second room of those games. Beneath the entrance are pipes that will indefinitely spawn Geegas. Lower yet is an area that is seemingly the bottom of the room, with only Power Bomb Blocks impeding a Yellow Hatch and a destructible box that contains a Beetom. However, there are Fake Blocks on the ground that reveal a passage leading to the true bottom of the room, a shaft full of Rippers. At the bottom are two doors, on the left is a Green Hatch leading to an Energy Recharge Station, and on the right is a Blue Door leading to more of the area.

Above the entrance is a thinner shaft with platforms made of Bomb Blocks that require the High Jump Boots to reach normally. Near the top of the shaft are many Rippers, and at the very top, part of the floor is a Fake Block that must be shot in order to reach the Blue Door leading to where the first Power Bombs are.

When this room is first entered, the only direction which can be gone is down. At the "bottom", Samus will find herself unable to move on unless she finds and destroys the hidden Fake Blocks in the "floor". Once at the bottom, Samus is unable to ascend the shaft again until she acquires the Ice Beam and High Jump Boots, or uses tricky Wall or Bomb Jumps. Once these items are acquired, Samus will be able to reach the very top of the shaft by freezing the Rippers, allowing her to acquire her first Power Bombs.

On her way back down, Samus will likely use her newly acquired Power Bombs to open the Yellow Hatch that is midway down the shaft, but find herself unable to progress until she has acquired the Grappling Beam. Once she finds that item, she will be able to reach the X-Ray Scope.

"Flooded hall 2" is a much larger chamber than the previous one. It initially appears as another straight corridor with a flooded floor. Two Yapping Maws are embedded into the floor, surrounded by spikes and metal blocks that touch the surface of the water. Should Samus fall into the water, she will have difficulty escaping without the Gravity Suit, and especially if a Yapping Maw grabs and drags her into the spikes. A red soiled platform in the middle of the room is inhabited by a Cacatac, and above this is a ledge, but nothing of importance is found there.

Samus can shoot a Fake Block in the ceiling immediately above the entrance to expose a hidden shaft. Jumping up here with the High Jump Boots if she has them, or by Wall Jumping, Samus will find a Bomb Block and then a Fake Block. It is recommended that the latter block be shot rather than Bombed, as doing so causes another block underneath to rupture and Samus will be dropped back to the lower floor. After rolling through the tight passage, Samus will find the entrance to the room with the Spazer Beam.

"Transport to Norfair" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. A different room located elsewhere in Brinstar serves much the same purpose as that of Metroid and Zero Mission during Samus's second mission to Zebes. The original room is no longer accessible, nor are any rooms in the original Brinstar after the "overhang corridor".

The new room more closely resembles its counterpart from Metroid, but its size has been expanded. As Samus descends the elevator shaft, the walls are shown to be formed from blue rock tile, identical to that of old Brinstar. In the background of the room are large metal panels with a burgundy color. The rightmost wall is composed of Super Missile Blocks; destroying the wall reveals a secret second half of the room, constructed out of blue bricks.

On the top right is a massive statue depicting a one-eyed, monstrous creature in the wall; this looks nearly identical to a statue found in the Kraid elevator room in Metroid. Samus can walk through the creature's maw to find a door leading to Kraid.

"Mini-Kraid's room" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. A different version of it previously appeared in Metroid and Metroid: Zero Mission as part of Kraid's Lair. In Super Metroid, with Kraid's Lair being located in a different section of Brinstar, Mini-Kraid's new quarters are technically a separate room from the one previously featured in Metroid and Zero Mission. However, it is very similar to its appearance in Metroid, albeit with the addition of a red background, some metal construction near the end and a slightly lowered ceiling in the middle. The pillars, Air Holes and acid are absent. This lowered ceiling features two magenta-colored orbs that are positioned to resemble eyes, and four sets of curved spikes on its underside (twelve total) positioned to resemble teeth. These teeth spikes can harm Samus if she touches them, such as while jumping. The face is similar to that found in "Kraid's room access" in the original Metroid.

When Samus enters this room for the first time, tense music begins playing and the doors lock. She is confronted by three Green Zebesians, and as she moves past them small spikes will begin to fly towards her. As she continues, she will come across Mini-Kraid. Defeating the creature unlocks the doors and allows her to continue. On return visits, the Silence theme plays and Mini-Kraid respawns, but the doors remain unlocked.

"Kraid's room access" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. A separate version appeared in Metroid and Metroid: Zero Mission as part of Kraid's Lair. In Super Metroid, another room that serves the same purpose as the original appears in Brinstar, while the original Kraid's Lair is no longer accessible. It is now a corridor consisting of green and metallic tiles, with spikes lining parts of the ceiling and floor. A single Air Hole is present, spawning Geegas endlessly. As Samus approaches the right, projectiles will begin to fire from the right and she will come upon a mysterious corpse, the nature of which has been subject to speculation. Sbugs can be found feeding on the corpse, which will scurry away when Samus approaches them, but return on subsequent visits, making this the only room where they can be encountered multiple times. The door into Kraid's room is covered by a Gadora, which may have killed the bioform Samus encountered. Before she proceeds into Kraid's chamber, Samus can shoot part of the ceiling near the entrance to find a hidden chamber with Energy and Missile Recharge stations.

The "Brinstar Recharge Station" is a small room above Kraid's room access. It contains both an Energy Charge and a Missile Station, which can be used by Samus before and after the battle with Kraid to replenish her Energy and Missile Ammo. The room has a green color scheme with notable fray in the walls, floor and ceiling, and three tubes, one of which has broken glass.

Kraid's room.png

The "Kraid's room" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. It previously appeared in Metroid and Metroid: Zero Mission as the second room of those games. In Super Metroid, with Kraid's Lair being located in a different section of Brinstar, his new quarters are technically a separate room from the one previously featured in Metroid and Zero Mission. As such, it is radically different in appearance; while it has a few blue rocks like those seen in old Brinstar, it is largely overgrown with green vegetation, spiked growths, and thorny vines.

When Samus first enters Kraid's quarters, the chamber appears unoccupied, only for Kraid to appear by burrowing up through the rocks and spikes on the floor. After taking some damage, Kraid will rise up to his full height, breaking through the chamber's ceiling and doubling the room's size. Samus has to climb up his stomach spikes and use midair platforms to reach Kraid's vulnerable head. Upon Kraid's death, the chamber shakes and large rocks fall from the ceiling as Kraid sinks into the floor, much like in Zero Mission. Additionally, the midair platforms crumble and the floor spikes disappear one by one as Kraid sinks down.

With Kraid defeated for good, Samus can enter the adjacent room to the right to gain the Varia Suit.

In Super Metroid, Kraid has a new reliquary and the old room can no longer be accessed. The new reliquary is the rightmost room in Brinstar. It is a square room comprised of metal bricks and pipes, with panels in the background containing red buttons or lights. A small item pedestal sits on a rectangular-shaped platform in the center of the room, and an Item Sphere is found atop this. The sphere contains the Varia Suit.

The "path of maws" is a corridor in the red section of Brinstar, which can be accessed from the top of the Red Tower. It is filled with Samus Eaters, hence the name. There are nine Samus Eaters, three of which are on the ceiling, as well as four Zeelas; additionally, four of the ground-based Eaters spawn Zebbos. The flowers are nestled in between spike patches. The frequency of the enemies makes traversal, over midair platforms of varying size, difficult. It leads into the Red Brinstar Elevator Room.

Red Tower Elevator Room[]

Brinstar-Crateria SM elevator.png

The "Red Tower Elevator Room" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. This room is very similar to the Red Tower in being vertical shafts made of red soil. At the top of this shaft is an elevator leading to Crateria, one of three connecting Brinstar to the surface of Zebes, specifically the region close to the Wrecked Ship. Therefore, this is an ideal shortcut to the Wrecked Ship after Samus defeats Kraid and obtains additional power-ups in Norfair.

When entered, the door behind Samus turns into a Yellow Hatch. Shooting two large cube-like blocks in the center of the floor reveals a secret undershaft populated by Zeros, whose molted skins can be seen on the walls. This lower half of the room leads into the "Alpha Power Bomb Room", which contains the first Power Bombs in the game. There are two curious-looking golden pipes visible in the right wall in the lower part of the shaft; their purpose is unknown.

Samus can ascend the shaft to find the door to a Save Room and another room with a Power Bomb Tank. Later, in Maridia, she can access a shortcut to Brinstar that takes her into the Elevator Room via a secret passage in the wall with a shutter. Unlike the rest of the room, this part is made of the blue brick and block material that makes up the "old", blue region of Brinstar and the elevator room to Norfair.

SM Brinstar Power Bomb Tank 1.gif

The "Alpha Power Bomb Room" (as termed by speedrunners) is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid, and is where the first Power Bombs are obtained without Sequence Breaking. This is a corridor reachable through a door in the lower half of the "Red Tower Elevator Room". Getting to it requires the Ice Beam, which can be obtained after defeating Kraid. Unlike the surrounding area, this room has minimal red soil, with the only element being a thin strip under the floor. The rest of the room is of artificial construction, built from metal bricks and pipes, and the background is blue like the three rooms of "Old Brinstar". Three Samus Eaters surrounded by spikes are embedded into the floor.

Samus can cross over them using five midair block platforms. In between the blocks are Boyons, which may knock Samus down if she is not careful. She can freeze the Boyons when they are still or have jumped up, for easier passage. A Chozo Statue sits on the other side of the room, holding (what is normally) the first Power Bomb Tank in the game. Immediately after picking the item up, Samus can use a Power Bomb to destroy the wall behind the Chozo Statue. This reveals a hidden back room with a Missile Tank on a pedestal. After collecting both items, Samus can leave and there is no incentive for revisiting this room.

The "Beta Power Bomb Room" (as termed by speedrunners) is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. This room is found on the upper left of the Red Tower Elevator Room. It is a short horizontal corridor with vines in the foreground and a ceiling lined with organic spikes. A long metal girder serves as the floor, directly above midair blocks. Under the girder and blocks is another field of organic spikes and three Samus Eaters, two of which have Yapping Maws in them. The leftmost Samus Eater is boxed in by two metal brick walls.

When Samus enters the room, the door locks behind her until she kills three Sidehoppers above the girder. A Power Bomb can destroy them instantly, but it will also destroy the girder, causing Samus to fall into the spikes or Eaters below. The Yapping Maws will try to pull her into their flowers, causing double damage. However, the leftmost Samus Eater is a fake, and Samus can drop into its body to fall into a small metal chamber underneath.[1][2] A Power Bomb Tank is here.

Red Brinstar Fireflea Room[]

Red Brinstar Fireflea Room.png

The "Red Brinstar Fireflea Room" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. The Red Brinstar Fireflea Room is a long, dimly-lit corridor, which can be reached through the left side of the Red Tower. It cannot be visited until the Power Bombs have been collected, since a Power Bomb Block obstructs the door to it, and said door is a Yellow Hatch. Additionally, the Grappling Beam is needed to safely cross. Much of the floor is lined with spikes, forcing Samus to cross over them using Grapple Points lined along the ceiling, or the Space Jump if she returns from Maridia with it. There are two pits in the room, one with a partially spike-free floor, the other completely engulfed in spikes. The room leads to the X-Ray Scope's chamber; since that is an optional item, Samus may choose not to visit this room at all.

The room's dim lighting is provided by five Firefleas. Killing the Firefleas by shooting or making physical contact with them causes the room to become darker, making it harder for Samus to see. Therefore, the safest option is to shoot them once with the Ice Beam and get past them. Also inhabiting the room are Wavers, which float around the room, and Yapping Maws, which attempt to pull Samus down into the spikes. The Wavers will not knock Samus off of a Grapple Point if she is currently grappled to it; they will only do so if she is between points when swinging across them in midair.

The "X-Ray Scope room" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. This is a short passage of metal architecture, with spikes visible underneath the floor. It is accessed through a dark corridor after the Power Bombs and Grappling Beam have been obtained. Visiting this room is optional. As the name implies, it contains the X-Ray Scope. To get to it, Samus must jump atop a step on the center wall and lay a Bomb in Morph Ball form. This will trigger a pillar underneath to rise, lifting Samus atop the structure.

She can then roll left and drop through a Pit Block into a small chamber with a Chozo Statue. Said statue holds the X-Ray Scope. Samus can use the item immediately after to reveal invisible passages in the center structure, walls and floor, which she can reach by Bombing the upper wall behind the Chozo Statue. This leads into a passage that takes her inside the structure, where Samus can drop below the pillar, which has now retracted. Bombing at the base of the pillar will cause it to rise again, allowing Samus to roll back out to the entrance and leave.

Like most other Item Rooms, there are no enemies in this room.

The "Pink Brinstar Power Bomb Room" can be found through a hidden entrance in the pink shaft, which requires a Power Bomb and possibly the Grappling Beam (or Wall Jumping) to access. It has two floors. When the room is entered, the door locks behind Samus. Two Sidehoppers inhabit the first floor, which has the same pink environment as the large shaft, and three grooves with two spikes in each. These spikes have indefinite "poking" animations. As Samus crosses the room, she will find a curious block in the floor, which can be destroyed with a Super Missile.

This drops her through two Pit Blocks into the second floor, which is made of metal architecture. A Power Bomb Tank can be found here. To leave, Samus can shoot a shutter next to the tank to retract it, drop below and lay a Bomb. This will take her through a pipe to a door on the other side. Laying a Bomb will cause another shutter to lift her up to the door so she can leave.

In the center of the room is a large vertical wall with a gap near the ceiling, which is blocked by a shutter with its switch on the right side. In front of the wall is a step with a group of four spikes under it, which cannot harm Samus. Samus can shoot the shutter's switch with the Wave Beam to open it. Samus can scale the wall with either Wall Jumping or by using a Grapple Point, but the Grappling Beam is not necessary to get over the wall. The room leads into a chamber with an Energy Tank.

Jungle trap[]

Main article: Jungle trap

Jungle trap.png

The "jungle trap" is a room in Brinstar. It appears in Super Metroid. This room consists of two floors. The upper floor is made of metal tiles, rather resembling those found in the original Metroid in areas such as Ridley's Lair. At the other end of the room is an Energy Tank in front of a Green Hatch. However, a trap is hidden right in front of the Tank: an invisible drop that sends Samus falling into the second floor, a subterranean chamber lined with spikes on the ceiling and ground. Pit Blocks in the invisible drop prevent Samus from Turbo Bombing, Space Jumping or Wall Jumping back up. If Samus has the X-Ray Scope, it can be used to see the hidden gap. A running jump is required to clear the gap and collect the tank.

The lower floor is made of the green jungle material found in much of Brinstar. It leads into a shaft containing three Etecoons, who teach Samus how to Wall Jump out of the shaft, at the top of which is an exit back into the main Brinstar shaft. To the left after the drop is a door leading into a Save Room; however, if the player is incapable of Wall Jumping, saving at the station may result in the game needing to be restarted.

As stated, the lower floor's ceiling and walls are lined with spikes, with multiple midair platforms being the only way to cross to the other side. Making traversal even more difficult is the gradually decreasing size of the platforms, as well as the presence of Beetoms, and Air Holes that spawn Zebbos indefinitely. The Beetoms can drain Samus's energy by latching on, and cause Samus to fall off and/or jump into the ceiling spikes, damaging her. If frozen, the Beetoms will take up space until they unfreeze. Samus can use a Power Bomb to eliminate them quickly. On the plus side, the respawning Zebbos provide Samus with an opportunity to replenish any lost energy by killing each one that emerges.

Hell[]

Main article: Hell

Etecoons in Hell.png

Hell is a room in Brinstar where the Etecoons live. The room, which is a vertical shaft, is referred to as "Hell" in Super Metroid storyboards, referring to the fact that the shaft is relatively deep underground and surrounded by thorns and numerous enemies. Samus is not required to enter this room, but should she fail to jump over a gap in deep Brinstar, she will fall to a chamber underground where her only alternative to get out is through "Hell". A Save Station is in this area, but it is not recommended for use if she cannot Wall Jump. When Samus enters the shaft, she finds the three Etecoons singing, and then they start to jump off the walls. Samus must follow their example, bouncing up the walls quickly and efficiently.

The room features the dark blue background and jungle texture that is a staple feature throughout Brinstar. At the bottom, there are four red flower blooms, three on the bottom and one atop Samus. The shaft is mostly wall-to-wall, except for a few small ledges that Samus can use. One of these ledges leads to a tunnel that will bring Samus out to an area where she can escape quicker. Otherwise, she can continue to jump up the shaft until she reaches the top, which features an exit. She can achieve this by using the Spring Ball, jumping up that one wall, or jumping to the tunnel and then morphing in midair. One of the Etecoons, upon reaching the top, will jump into the tunnel and be seen bouncing around.

From outside, the top of the Etecoon shaft cannot be reached; because the door remains a Metal Door for the rest of the game. The aforementioned tunnel exit also cannot be used from outside.
