A Phaz-Ing is a creature that resembles a Phazon version of an Inglet, composed of Phazon instead of dark matter. It can be killed by shooting it, using the Grapple Lasso, the Grapple Voltage, or using the Hyper Grapple. Touching them in Morph Ball mode results in Samus being covered and damaged by Phazon. According to the scan they prefer to stay in this liquid form. This is due to the fact that in the liquid form they are harder to hit and can't be easily killed using the Grapple Lasso or Grapple Voltage. Their only attack is charging energy to shoot a Phazon blast. Samus can use the Hyper Grapple on them on Phaaze to quickly drain Phazon.

Logbook entry

Phaz-Ing bodies are weak to physical stress and can be easily pulled apart. These morphing blobs of Phazon often prefer to stay in puddle form and will only shift out to attack. Their ability to move over all types of terrain allows them to position themselves at a distance before assaulting with bursts of Phazon Energy.


The Phaz-Ing's name is possibly derived from a portmanteau of the words "Phazon" and "Ing", and also a play on the word "phasing", referring to how the creature phases in and out of its liquid form.


  • The uncanny resemblance between Phaz-Ing and Inglets suggests a possible connection between the former and the Ing. No official word exists on the matter, however.
    • Not only do Inglets and Phaz-Ing look alike, they also have identical sounds when attacking and the same animations.
    • It is possible that the Leviathan that impacted Aether may have carried Phaz-Ing which may have been transformed or evolved into the Ing as a result of the rift in time that created Dark Aether. Presumably the Emperor Ing was either originally a Phaz-Ing who became adapted to Dark Aether's environment via Phazon Mutation or the descendant of a Phaz-Ing that was born in Dark Aether. Emperor Ing's first form in the battle with Samus resembles an overgrown Inglet which further implies a connection to the Phaz-Ing.
  • In the French version of Corruption, their name literally translates as Ing from Phaaze.
