Portal Access is a room in the Dark Agon Wastes. It appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.


The only occupants are a Lightflyer and a group of Bladepods. There are no Light Crystals or Light Beacons, but the Lightflyer can be destroyed to create a Safe Zone. It does not last very long, but another Lightflyer will respawn. Using the Safe Zone is critical as during Samus's first visit to this room, she only has the Varia Suit, which cannot protect her from the air of Dark Aether. The Lightflyer is atop of a wall in the middle of the hallway that divides it into two sections. Without the Space Jump Boots, this wall cannot be passed.

The Aether equivalent of Portal Access is Portal Access A.
