The current title is from the game's internal data.

Trooper 002 is the internal name of a Federation Marine character that appears in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.


When Samus Aran arrives on Norion, Trooper 002 guides the landing of her Gunship in Docking Hub Alpha. Once Samus disembarks, the soldier informs her that the invading Space Pirates have disabled the three Fedtech Plasma Generators that power the planetary Defense Cannon. He requests that she work with Rundas, Ghor and Gandrayda to restore power to the generators and use the cannon to repulse the assault. Before dismissing her, he gives her the generator coordinates, which are marked on the Map. He then moves to the inner side of Samus's Gunship, and stays there.


Stand to, Samus.

Our situation doesn't look good. The pirate attack has knocked out our generators and disabled the planetary-defense system.

This cannon was our only weapon capable of taking out orbiting ships.

We need you and the other Hunters to get the generators back online and restore power to the cannon so we can repulse this assault.

I'm uploading the generator coordinates to you now. Good hunting.

[if spoken to afterward] We need to get those generators back online, Samus.

  • Should the game be saved at the Gunship after Trooper 002's briefing, and then quit and then reloaded, he will disappear.
  • The trooper is present in the first trailer released through the Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Preview, where he has a different line after his initial briefing: "Be on the lookout for other hunters. They're here to help you accomplish this mission."
  • Another Marine appears in Docking Hub Alpha a month after the invasion, but whether it is the same one as this character is unknown.
  • Trooper 002 is voiced by Bryan Walker, the Senior Producer of Corruption. Walker revealed that he voiced this character in a 2021 interview.[1] It was a placeholder audio file that was retained in the final game. Scott Petersen gave the role to Walker since he was the only military veteran at Retro Studios. Walker joked that it exposed his sibilant pronunciation of "Stand to, Samus."[2]
