Elite Research is a room in the Phazon Mines region of Metroid Prime. It contains the Phazon Elite.
Without Boost Ball
Climb Without Scan Visor
Useful in randomizers with scan visor randomized
In the original NTSC version, if the player killed the Phazon Elite and left the room without collecting the Artifact of Warrior, the artifact would disappear permanently and the player would be unable to beat the game. This glitch was fixed in all subsequent releases of the game.
This room contains a TAS-only secret world.
