Enemy Glitches

Frozen Omega Pirate

Makes the Omega Pirate temporarily immobile, allowing you to deal damage before it even attacks. You must have previously seen the cutscene before the Omega Pirate breaks out of its stasis chamber Go to the far left or right sides of the room and walk to the area where to cutscene occurs. Skip the cutscene. This will only work on the earlier discs of the North American GameCube version. The bottom of the disc must read DOL-GM8E-0-00 USA or DOL-GM8E-0-00 JPN.

Meta Ridley Glitch

Heavily damages Meta Ridley, taking him to his ground phase. You must have the Boost Ball in order for this to work and the battle also must be in the aerial phase. When Meta Ridley lands during the aerial phase of the battle, Boost into his chest. This will only work on the GameCube versions of the game.

Metroid Prime Glitch

Keeps the Metroid Prime from hurting you in the final phase. Be in the final boss battle with the Metroid Prime During the battle, look to your right for a small red root thing. jump on top of it and stay there. The Metroid Prime's ground energy attack will not harm you All other attacks, including contact, will still harm you. This is possible in all versions, including the trilogy.


Chozo Ruins Crash

Crashes the game Have the original North American version of the game Use one of the elevators in the Chozo Ruins. This only works in the original North American version of the game and has been corrected in later releases. This will also only occur on rare occasions and will not damage any saved game.

Artifact of Warrior disappear

Causes the Artifact of Warrior to disappear without being collected. Have an older version of the game and be at where you collect the artifact. After defeating the Phazon Elite, leave the room, and reenter. This makes the save file unable to be beaten, forcing the start of a new file. It has been fixed in later versions of the game by locking the door, forcing Samus to collect the artifact.
