Metroid Prime Completion Guide

Complete logbook

by the NWR Staff - January 12, 2003, 12:05 am PST

Fill your logbook the easy way.

Log Book names are in bold-italics and are dark green in color, entries are in bold text, and locations are in italics. Any entry that can only be obtained at a single point in the game will be colored red (see the red entry guide on the next page for a walk-through). Specific room names that can be checked on the map will be in blue.

All entries are in the order in which they appear in the game's logbook. This means that if you have the first and third Chozo Lore entries, the one that goes in between it is the second one on the list below.

Research For the things found in various places, look at your map and try and remember the contents of the room to find the nearest one.

01) Save Station: various

02) Missile Door Lock: various (Though you can get this in many places in the game, once you blow up all the missile door locks you won't be able to scan them again)

03) Map Station: various (I believe you have to scan this BEFORE you get the map)

04) Spinner: various

05) Missile Ammo: various

06) Large Energy(red): various

07) Small Energy(purple): various

08) Stalactite: various(You may have to scan these before dislodging them from ceilings. Most haven't found the one in Phendrena that shatters the frozen ice lake because breaking it requires the grappling beam)

09) Missile Station: Found in a few locations, check your map for big M's.

10) Spider Ball Track: various (Note: not all of these tracks can be scanned)

11) Power Bomb Ammo: various

12) Grapple Point: various

13) Zebes: Phendrena Drifts - Observatory

14) Ultra Energy(yellow): Found after defeating really big enemies and bosses.

15) Morph Ball Slot: various (Note: scan before activating)

16) Tallon IV Phendrena Drifts - Observatory

17) Locked Door: various (These are most prevalent as you play through the game. If you wait until the very end of the game to scan this, you should find that the last door that you walk through in the entire game is locked.)

18) Gunship: Tallon Overworld - Landing Site

Creatures For the moment, I'll only provide exact locations for hard to find creatures or the ones that appear in only one place. The rest will get a general location since they appear so often.

01) Mega Turret: Turrets with more armor found In the Phazon Mines.

02) Grizby: Small creature killed only by missiles or heavy beam weapons in the early Magmoor Caverns.

03) Zoomer: Soft spiked creature found all over the Tallon Overworld.

04) Plated Parasite: There are some in the Chozo Ruins - Furnace crawling on the pipes near the ceiling.

05) Pulse Bombu: The yellow and blue energy balls found all over Phendrena Drifts.

06) Ice Shriekbat: In Phendrena's Ice Ruins West you'll find some of these guys if you travel on the rooftops. Be ready to scan because they suicide bomb you with great speed. These disappear at some point in the game, so get them when you first see them.

07) Parasite Queen: Only available in the Space Pirate Frigate (it's the boss).

08) Scarab: These are the small explosive monsters that swarm the tunnels of the Chozo Ruins and other places.

12) Glider: In the Phazon Mines and Phendrena Drifts, these creatures provide living grapple points.

13) Auto Turret: These are all over the place, but become more difficult to find as the game progresses. Their should always be some in the Phendrena labs though.

17) Flying Pirate: Found in various places (especially later in the game). The first ones are found in the Tallon Overworld next to the crashed ship.

18) Hive Mecha: This only appears when you're fighting for your first pack of missiles. You have to look down under the water to get the Hive Mecha scan (not the ports that you fire at). Don't forget to scan those Ram War Wasps as well.

19) War Wasp: Found all over the Chozo Ruins.

20) Blood Flower: Found in the Tallon Overworld (it spits poisonous green balls).

21) Ice Beetle: Found in the Phendrena Drifts after defeating Thardus (the boss).

33) Scatter Bombu: These tend to block tunnels in the Phendrena drifts. They are blue energy spheres with smaller red spheres and emit 3 beams of electricity.

34) Space Pirate: As the game progresses, you'll find it more difficult to find an ordinary Space Pirate. Scan this one early on (or find them in the beginning of the Phazon mines).

35) Parasite: Can only be scanned in the Space Pirate Frigate (they swarm the tunnels after you beat the boss).

36) Tallon Crab: Swarms one tunnel near the beginning of the crashed Space Pirate Frigate.

37) Blastcap: Mushrooms found all over the Chozo Ruins.

38) Aqua Sac: These are found in the crashed Space Pirate Frigate underwater (toward the end of the Frigate). They are light blue in color and explode upon being fired on.

46) Aqua Pirate: These are underwater flying pirates. Find them in the crashed Space Pirate Frigate.

48) Seedling: Found on the ceiling of the passage of Tallon Overworld that leads to the Cradle/Temple.

49) Plated Beetle: The armored beetles with vulnerable red tail sections (abdomens) that are found all over the Chozo Ruins.

50) Sheegoth: Most easily scanned in boss form as you fight for the wave beam, but some medium sized Sheegoth can be scanned in Ice Ruins West later in the game.

51) Stone Toad: Found in the Chozo Ruins in two places. These are the creatures that eat you when you roll up into a ball. One is found right after you get the bombs, and the rest are located in the Reflecting Pool.

52) Metroid: I'm not going to tell you where to find Metroids.

53) Venom Weed: Red colored weeds that impede movement and cause damage. These are found in various places (try the Chozo Ruins in the room dominated by a large tree).
