Torvus Bog Main Theme

The Great Bridge is a large room in Torvus Bog. As its name implies, the most notable feature of the room is a large bridge in the center on the room that leads to Torvus Temple. Underneath there is a shallow body of water that Samus can walk through easily. It is the Aetherian counterpart of the Venomous Pond. When Samus enters for the first time, she'll be greeted by multiple Shriekers on the lower level. After having visited the Forgotten Bridge on the other side of the bog, these will be replaced by Grenchlers and, later, Dark Pirate Commandos on random visits. On all visits, several Shriekbats guard the door to the upper level of the Temple Access.

The room houses several Torvus Bearerpods, and a few Torvus Hanging Pods as well. There's a small tunnel between the ledge where one can access the Abandoned Worksite and the bridge itself. Samus can enter it using Morph Ball mode and behind a Denzium wall, she can grab a Power Bomb Expansion. There's also a Kinetic Orb Cannon in the room that will shoot Samus onto the bridge, but only once the Interface Module next to the Abandoned Worksite entrance has been activated. Like most of the rooms in Torvus Bog, there's a Sentinel Crystal in the room, implied to be relaying information to U-Mos.

The room has several doors to multiple locations, including one Blue Door to the Path of Roots and another to the Torvus Map Station, though there's a green Translator Door blocking the entrance to the Map Station that can only be unlocked after speaking to A-Voq and having your Translator Module updated. There's a Blue Door and a Purple Hatch on the upper and lower levels of the bridge that both lead to the Temple Access. The Portal Access door has a Red Blast Shield on it, and the Abandoned Worksite lies behind a White Hatch.
