Game(s) Metroid Prime
Located in Tallon IV
Weaknesses Power Bombs

Bendezium is an extremely dense material naturally found on Tallon IV that was used extensively by Chozo colonists in their settlements. Bendezium is impervious to Beams and most concussive weapons, but a high-yield concussive blast such as that emitted by a Power Bomb will destroy it. Despite its apparent invulnerability, Bendezium can be weakened by supersaturation of water and microfractures.[1][2]

A similar substance called Denzium created by Luminoth Mechanoids appears on the planet Aether and has comparable properties to Bendezium.[3]

Scan Data
