The Root Cave is a large cave in the Tallon Overworld. The room is very tall, with a number of platforms and roots that can be used to climb up or down. At the bottom is a door to Transport Tunnel B, along with a large Beetle nest. Higher up, there are a number of platforms and roots with Zoomers on them. About halfway up the cave, there is a door to the Root Tunnel. Going higher requires the Grapple Beam and leads to a Bloodflower and a Red Door that leads to the Arbor Chamber. With the X-Ray Visor, Samus can reveal four invisible platforms on which she must climb and a false wall of roots, which has a Missile Expansion behind it.
