Advanced Aerotrooper is a type of Pirate Aerotrooper found in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Advanced Aerotroopers wear an extra layer of ablative armor that resists regular Beam weapons but is vulnerable to Missiles, as well as Phazon-based weapons. Once their armor is broken, they'll become regular Aerotroopers.
- "When the going gets tough, the tough put on armor. Advanced Aerotroopers wear an extra layer of ablative armor that is susceptible to explosive blasts. Like regular Aerotroopers, they wield Twin Remote Attack Pods in combat. These are outfitted with a Particle Cannon and a Gel Bomb Rack. Gel Bombs stick to their targets until detonation. High-velocity movement can remove Gel Bombs." — Logbook "Advanced Aerotrooper" (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption)
