Metroid Prime Remastered: 10 Best Boss Fights

There are a lot of great boss fights in Metroid Prime Remastered.

The Metroid series started out on the NES as a 2D action-platformer with a dark atmosphere. It stayed that way until 2002, when Metroid Prime came out for the GameCube. In this new adventure, you get to wear Samus’ Power Suit and see a huge planet, Tallon IV, from her point of view.

Early in 2023, a new version of Metroid Prime for the Nintendo Switch came out with better graphics and other changes. Tallon IV is where a lot of the bosses are that you have to beat to get new items and upgrades. Even though they are all dangerous at first, some are much more interesting and fun to fight than others.

Incinerator Drone

Incinerator Drone

After the epic prologue of Metroid Prime, Samus lands on Tallon IV with almost no powers or skills. After looking around the Chozo Ruins and getting the Morph Ball upgrade. You’ll eventually run into the Incinerator Drone, a mechanical boss.

As soon as you close the door behind you, the Incinerator Drone will start to attack with its flamethrowers. You can run, jump, or roll to get away from the flames and attack the machine when it shows its weak spot. It will eventually burn a nearby hive and send War Wasps after you, but the fight shouldn’t take too long, and when you beat the Incinerator Drone, you’ll be able to use Morph Ball Bombs.

Phazon Elite

Phazon Elite

After spending enough time on Tallon IV, you’ll learn that one of your ultimate goals is to find the twelve Chozo Artifacts that are hidden all over the planet so you can get to the final area and boss. Many of them are cleverly hidden in rooms that you can’t get to until late in the game. To get to the Artifact of Warrior, you have to fight the Phazon Elite.

The Phazon Elite is probably one of the last bosses you’ll face on your journey. But it’s not very different from the others. At this point in Metroid Prime, you’ve fought a lot of Space Pirates and their variations. And the Phazon Elite’s moves are similar to those of better bosses you’ve already beaten.

Sheegoth

Sheegoth

In Metroid Prime, a few bosses quickly turn into regular enemies after you beat them. Sheegoth, like the Plated Beetle, is a tough opponent when you first meet it. But it’s much easier to fight one in the wild after you’ve unlocked a few more upgrades.

You’ll meet Sheegoth for the first time in the room with the valuable Wave Beam. When the battle starts, you’ll have to beat a few Baby Sheegoth before the bigger one shows up. Adult Sheegoth is very mean and can’t be hurt by most beam attacks. The best way to beat it and get the new weapon is to wait until it does its “icy breath” move, then attack its open mouth.

Hive Mecha

Hive Mecha

The Hive Mecha is an insect-based mechanical defense similar to the Incinerator Drone. It’s one of the first bosses you’ll fight on Tallon IV. And even though it’s big, it’s one of the easier ones to beat. It can’t attack, so it depends on Ram War Wasps to protect it.

Even though fighting the Hive Mecha is easy, you can only stand on a small platform. That is surrounded by poisonous water. The Wasps might knock you back into it, which could kill you if you don’t get out of there quickly enough. As long as you stay in the middle of the platform and keep shooting. The Hive Mecha will be destroyed and the Missile Launcher will be unlocked.

Thardus

Thardus

The Space Pirates are known for doing c.r.a.z.y and dangerous experiments. And it seems like even they knew they went too far when they made Thardus. They used Phazon ore to make this huge rock monster as an experiment to see if they could turn inanimate things into weapons. But it was too dangerous for them, so they left it in Quarantine Cave in Phendrana Drifts.

To beat Thardus, you’ll need to use the Thermal Visor to find its weak spots and then kill it with your strongest weapon. You will have to do this more than once, and each time you beat one of Thardus’ weak points, he will get more aggressive. After this one-of-a-kind fight, you’ll be able to use the Spider Ball ability, which is one of the coolest things in the game.

Omega Pirate

Omega Pirate

As you get closer to the end of the journey, you’ll need to get a few more important upgrades before facing the final bosses and challenges. The most dangerous place in Metroid Prime is the Phazon Mines. And the boss in the Elite Quarters is one of the toughest in the game.

The Omega Pirate is a hard boss that you can only beat if you use multiple visors and beams. First, you have to destroy four weak spots on its body while avoiding its heavy attacks. Then, it will turn invisible and call a group of Troopers to distract you while it heals itself. You can find it with your X-Ray Visor and hit it in the chest with a Super Missile while it heals. If Samus does this enough times, she can beat the Omega Pirate and get the Phazon Suit.

Flaahgra

Flaahgra

So many boss fights take place in dark or gloomy places that seeing Flaahgra in a slightly sunny place is a pleasant surprise. Flaahgra is a dangerous creature that lives in the Sunchamber, which is deep inside the Chozo Ruins. It gets most of its power from the solar panels that surround it.

While the panels are giving Flaahgra power, it can’t be hurt by almost any attack you make. So you’ll have to run around the platform quickly to take them out. Once you do this, its defense vines will go back and you’ll be able to turn into a Morph Ball and drop a Bomb by its roots. Flaahgra is still one of the most memorable bosses in Metroid Prime. Because of how it looks and how you fight it.

Metroid Prime

Metroid Prime

The game’s final boss, Metroid Prime, is in the Impact Crater. The Chozo Artifacts have sealed it off so you can’t get to it. Its poison has ruined Tallon IV and its people, but you won’t be able to beat it easily even if you have every Mission Expansion and Energy Tank in Slope Game. It has two ways to play that are very different and require quick thinking and patience to win.

In the first phase, Metroid Prime has a tough shell and a deadly range of attacks. It can only be hurt by one beam at a time. It changes color all the time to let you know which beam to use. But you’ll have to be quick to avoid all of its attacks. You can beat the second form by standing in Phazon puddles to release a Phazon Beam that destroys it and ends the journey.

Parasite Queen

Parasite Queen

For the first hour of Metroid Prime, Samus travels through space and investigates a derelict space station before arriving on the planet Tallon IV. It turns out that it’s not as empty as she thought it was. Because the Parasite Queen comes down to attack her with a deadly energy beam.

The Parasite Queen is the game’s first boss, and she sets a very high bar for what’s to come. The fight against the Parasite Queen is a great way to show how good Samus is as a bounty hunter because of how big it is. The first boss fight in Metroid Prime is so well-known that a Super Smash Bros. stage is based on it.

Meta Ridley

Meta Ridley

Ridley has been an ever-present danger to Samus’s progress as a bounty hunter ever since her first adventure on the NES, and he has never stopped trying to stop her. Other Metroid bad guys, like Kraid, aren’t in the Metroid Prime trilogy. But Ridley’s presence is still felt even though he was defeated in Super Metroid.

It turned out that the Space Pirates found his body and used their technology to bring him back to life. Right before the final boss, you engage in a battle with Meta Ridley. And it lives up to the hype of your previous encounters with him. Samus and Ridley hate each other, and the best boss fight in Metroid Prime lets you feel the tension between them.
