South Jungle Court is a room in Bryyo Thorn Jungle in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.


This room contains one of the two Anti-Air Cannon "Tiamat" turrets guarding the Leviathan Shield Generator in Bryyo Thorn Jungle. In a cutscene preceding the battle sequence, several Space Pirates will be loading Fuel Gel canisters into the turret, until one Pirate sees Samus and alerts the others. This starts a sequence where Samus must pull a switch underneath the turret to release its Fuel Gel tanks. Samus must then destroy them before the timer runs out and they are retracted. When this happens, an energy shield will form under the turret, causing minor damage to Samus if she touches it. It rather resembles a sand storm. Samus must repeat this step three times to destroy the turret.
