Trocra are crystallized colonies of cyanobacteria that float in midair. They were found at regular intervals around the room that held the first battle between Gorea and Samus, in the Oubliette. When touched, they will explode, doing damage. Trocra proved useful to both Samus and Gorea, as Samus could destroy them for items, and later Gorea's Seal Sphere grabbed them with energy tendrils and hurled them at Samus, though they could be easily sidestepped. If they do not exist elsewhere, they were presumably rendered extinct with the Oubliette's destruction.
Alimbic Origins[edit | edit source]
It is unclear why the Trocra appeared in the Seal Sphere room; the Alimbics could have placed them there as a defence against anyone who might want to release Gorea. However, all seven Bounty Hunters were able to get to the Seal Sphere without any hindrance.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The in-game model used by the Trocra has the filename "PowerBomb_Model.bin". This indicates that Power Bombs were intended to appear at some point in the game before being cut for unknown reasons, and the model was re-purposed as the Trocra.
