The Elite Research is a room in the Phazon Mines. It connects to the Security Access B, at the bottom, and to the Research Access, at the top, by White Doors.

Features[edit | edit source]

The room is divided into three levels. The bottom level has two Space Pirates and four computer terminals around a cracked stasis tank containing a Phazon Elite. This particular stasis tank is reinforced with Bendezium, and as such can be opened with a Power Bomb. If Samus opens it, the doors will be locked, and a boss battle will ensue. Once Samus defeats it, the Artifact of Warrior will appear where the stasis tank was. Once of the computer terminals can be scanned to lower three platforms allowing access to the second level.

The second level has three Wave Troopers on it. Once they see Samus, security shields will activate forcing Samus and the Pirates to use an outer hallway to navigate the floor. The far end of the room has a computer terminal that will lower the shields and lower more platforms to access the third level.

The third level has a Power Trooper on it. One side has a computer terminal that activates a Industrial Grade Pulse Beam in the center on the ceiling used for mining operations. This beam can be rotated with a nearby Spinner to point at various sections of the wall. The north wall can be destroyed with the beam to reveal a Missile Expansion, and the east wall can be destroyed to reveal the door to the Research Access.
