- This article is about the enemy projectile in Nintendo Land. For other uses, see Rocket (Disambiguation).
Description[edit | edit source]
In Metroid Blast, several enemies will fire Rockets at the Mii players. Purple Geemers can only fire one Rocket at a time; Kraid will fire two Rockets at a time during his second and third phases of battle, even when his weakpoint is exposed; Ridley and Ice Ridley can fire multiple Rockets at once from their backs.
These Rockets home in on players. If a Mii is hit, they will be sent flying back and lose a life point. However, Miis can safely destroy Rockets by shooting at them.
A Rocket is also available as a prize for the Nintendo Land Plaza, which can be randomly unlocked by spending coins in the central tower's pachinko game. When interacted with, this prize launches a Rocket into the air where it harmlessly explodes, and then a new Rocket is spawned in its place.
