The Training Drone is a Galactic Federation mechanoid. It is used in all branches of the GF military. They are designed to improve a Federation Marine's hand-eye coordination and accuracy. Drone Juggling is a popular training exercise, where the participant attempts to score as many consecutive hits on a drone as possible.
In Docking Bay 5 on the G.F.S. Olympus, Samus has the ability to play a Mini-Game involving the drones. Juggling either of the Training Drones 10 times earns Samus a Gold Credit, and by scoring 20 times she earns a Friend Voucher. The drone minigame can still be played even after the Berserker Lord battle despite Samus being needed below on Norion.
