The Phazon Site is a room in the Dark Agon Wastes. It appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.


The site has an abundance of Phazon (as its name would suggest), as well as a large number of Dark Tallon Metroids. The room is connected to three other rooms, one of which houses the Sonic Boom upgrade.

When Samus Aran first visits the Phazon Site, it is uninhabited. There are three Interface Modules in the room that Samus needs to scan in order to proceed to the next room. Floating platforms allow access to a higher level, where a striped door guards the Sonic Boom.

The Aether equivalent of this room is Bioenergy Production.

3 Dark Tallon Metroids (After obtaining the Light Beam)
"Morphology: Dark Tallon Metroid
Darkling-possessed energy parasite.
Symbiote makes target stronger in battle. Vulnerable to concussive blasts. Dislikes bright light."


Elevator hologram
"Elevator platform active."
Light Crystal

Light Beacons must be energized by Beam weapon fire to function, and remain charged for a limited time."
"Element: Phazon
Volatile ore with biomutagenic properties.
Origin point of Phazon unknown. First detection of element on planet Tallon IV. Used by Space Pirates to produce vast levels of energy."
Phazon canister
"Structural analysis complete.
This storage unit has been modified to transport radioactive material. Radscans indicate the presence of Phazon energy. Handle with caution."
