About Walkthrough ^ ^ * *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^ This walkthrough was made to enable people with the patience and desire to obtain the ability to beat Metroid Fusion in under 2 hours and collect all 100 items. This is a fairly difficult task. To be able to do this you have to move fast. You have to know where your going. It is HIGHLY suggested that you go ahead and beat the game before using this walkthrough. For one, if you do that, now you will have a clock and a checklist for when you press pause. Also it will help you familiarize with all the rooms, so that you can get through them as fast as possible. This is the first Walkthrough i've ever done, and it is not meant to be detailed. I just wrote down the nessacary information required to successfully complete the above task. I did write this walkthrough as I went through the game, but i also did each section 3 or 4 times before writting it down. The purpose for this is to ensure that i keep my time down. I suggest you do the same. There are parts of this walkthrough you may not get, just go ahead and run through the section without using the walkthrough and after you've gotten past it. Read the walkthrough and then re-do the section. There are set time goals that are a nice reminder to see how well your doing. If you start to fall too far behind, you might as well start over. It won't be possible to catch up very easily. Beating this game in under 2 hours with 100 percent is easier if your using an emulator. So if you can complete this task on your GBA, you definately deserve bragging rights. I would like anyone that has used my walkthrough, and it helped beat the game and see Samus half-naked to e-mail me with their thoughts(Offspring131313@yahoo.com). Thank you for reading, and enjoy the walkthrough. *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^* ^ ^ * II. Version History * ^ ^ *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^* v2.0 Added Headers, and spaced out walkthrough. Basically made it more pretty. Also corrected goal times. The First number is my second time when I tried to perfect the run. Whereas the 2nd number is for those not trying to get a PERFECT score. It's just a goal for those running through the game. And, moved around a couple of the items to improve times. Added VIII. Legalities.(3/19/04). v1.0 First Version(2/15/04) *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^* ^ ^ * III. Key things to keep in mind * ^ ^ *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^* 1. When looking at the map or talking to Adam, it doesn't add to your time, so you can take your time to plan things out. 2. Run as fast as you can to each area(Although this should be a no-brainer, just in case). 3. Try to ignore the enemies, or if you can just keep shooting while you run. 4. Wall jumping is much faster than climbing ladders. 5. When you speed boost remember you can store that energy in case you want to use that some where else. 6. You have missiles, they will work much better than your beam until you at least have the plasma beam, so use them very liberally. You shouldn't really need more than 50 for any boss. It's not like you don't have ample opportunities to refill. 7. Against most of the bosses, be reckless and run after them firing, you should have enough health. Not a good idea against Yakuza and Nightmare however. *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^* ^ ^ * IV. Walkthrough * ^ ^ *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^* ------------------------------- | | | 1.

The computer will proceed to tell you about how the x have infested sector one, the enviromental habitat meant to replicate SR388.

After you leave the recharge room, continue left and go throught the bottom left hatch. Go left into the big room, and go up where you will bomb the wall to the left.

Sector 3(First Visit) | | | ------------------------------ Adam will tell you to get a Missle upgrade from a data room in Sector 3 so go there. It's a good idea to try to Speed boost every where you go, because we are trying to get the lowest time possible, so now that we have this ability we're in good shape. Now talk to Adam in Sector 3 and yada yada yada, find the level 2 hatch lock and get your Super missles. After disconnecting with the navigation room, run to the right shooting the doors.

You will fall through the wall in front of you and keep pressing right, you will hit another wall and you should fall down to the bottom level of this Main room. When you hit the ground. Do not go right. This is imperitive because the timing on this move has to be just right if you wanna keep your time down. Start running left. While shooting the blocks when you get into the next room, jump as soon as you start speed boosting. If you timed it correctly you will go through this wall, but you will also go through the floor in the next room. Go down in there and shoot the ceiling to reveal another Missle upgrade. Go back out of here the way you came, go to the right of the room. Wait until the floor forms over again. Start running to the left when you hit the 2nd hump on the ground, jump.

You will run into a green door, open it and download your Super Missile upgrade. When leaving this room keep running left, right before you get to the door in the next room press down to shinespark. Shoot the door and shoulder charge through. You will go all the way left and hit the door that is now destroyed. This will cause the Security Robot to start making some noise upstairs. Now run to the right to the hole you flew over. Go in and go right past the save and recharge rooms. When you get into the next room immediately press L and R and fire a missle let go of l and fire 4 more missles, grab your missle upgrade. Go left and recharge if you need to.

Instead lay a mine about 3 blocks up on the bottom left. Go through and get the missile upgrade. Now destroy the big blue snot. After destroying him get up on the step and place a mine 3 blocks up on the right wall. Go in here, while still up on the ledge jump up to the right and lay a mine 2 blocks from the top. It will blow up a line of blocks, go in and grab your Energy Tank. Leave here and go up to the door. While running through this room angle ur shot up and shoot the Cold-X and head into the the verticle shaft to the right. When entering this room do the same thing and shoot the next Cold-X, and go straight down to the very bottom and go into that door. In the next room angle up and shoot one of the 2 top blocks.

After that go to the right, wait until you here her do a screw attack down to the room below, keep walking to the right untill you drop through the floor. When you hit the ground run left away from the SA-X. Now shoot the wall on the bottom left of this room and follow the path to the left. Now the SA-X should be gone, and hopefully you weren't shot at all. In the next room shoot the block in the middle of the floor and go down. Shoot the 2nd block from the left and you will fall all the way to the floor. To avoid being hit by any of the Cold-X kneel down and shoot to the left and roll into the hole you just made. When you enter this room, get up and angle up and shoot the 3 colorful grub-like things on the ceiling. jump up and roll into the hole. Lay mines until you get the missle upgrade. Now go back into the other room. Shoot the 3rd and 4th blocks up and go through there to the door. If you did this all correctly you shouldn't have seen a single Cold-X and thus, no dmg either.

When you enter immediately place a mine, while waiting for the mine to blow get your missiles ready, as soon as the mine blows, fire a few missiles as you head towards the door. After you go through the door, you will see two pillars in the background. Line yourself up with the left one as your falling and shoot down. You should fall right on through and down next to a large odd looking block. Go into the hatch on the left side of this room. Now just keep running left until you reach the security room. Unlock the Level 3 hatches and head left. This room is a bit of a pain. Kill the crab things that are in the way with missles. Grab the X-Parasites before they can reform to create another crab. Keep heading up and open the yellow door into the save room. Go right into that large room, instead of going right after this room, go up one floor and go right towards the data room.

When you enter this room go to the right and shoot the ceiling. Jump through it, kill the crab. DO NOT GRAB THE X. Let the x form into a blue starfish thing, get close to it, let it jump. While it's in the air, freeze it with your missile. Now use that as a platform to jump up to the left platform. Kill the crab, and same as the last one DO NOT GRAB THE X. Wait for it to form into a Floating cockroach. Freeze it while it's towards the middle. If you look to the top of the room, there will be a small 3 block recession in the ceiling shoot the one in the middle to reveal the missles, and jump up to grab them. Now you can leave this room and go back through the yellow hatch to the left of the long verticle shaft. Now that weird block you saw earlier will get bigger, wait for that and shoot it with a missle. Jump on top of it and shoot up to create the hole in the ceiling from earlier. Go into the hatch on the left. Kill the crab, DO NOT GRAB THE X. It will form into another crab, kill it and let the weird block thing get bigger from the parasite infecting it. Freeze the pillar and go all the way to the right of the platform. Run to the left through the hatch, picking up enough speed to get a speed boost. When you reach the end press down to create the shinespark. and Shoulder charge up. Go through the level 3 hatch to your right. Now your once again back into the big room. Go up one leverl of this room and go all the way to the right and shoot the wall to reveal a semi-secret room. Jump up onto the ledge and shoot left, go into the hole and roll to the left.

Sector 3(Second Visit) | | | ------------------------------- Now you only have 6 minutes to do this(rolls eyes). Considering it only takes about 2 minutes to do this project, no problem. It should take you exactly 15 seconds for you to get to sector 3. When you get there run straight through the nav/save/recharge rooms while picking up your speed boost. Run right off the edge and fall down through the blocks like before, but go right this time. Go around the barrier as before, just as before go the long verticle shaft. Run right off the edge and hold right. You should just barely miss the 2nd wall worm. Fall down to the bottom avoiding all the Enemies and avoid stopping as well. When you get in the next room go ahead and jump as far as you can right into the lava and jump right on out again. Shoot 2 missles to kill the flying enemy.

If he spits out fire, jump to the side and grab onto the bar and wait for him to roll and hit the wall. When he does this, jump over him and get ready to fire more missles. After about 15 missles he will turn into the Core X. Shoot this with your missles 3 times and you will have your morph ball, but you have to make sure you only shooting it when it's not flashing, or you'll waste missles. Charge Core-X Charge Beam Get your missles ready and shoot the eye when it appears. Until the eye appears, run around and dodge the Core. When the eye appears he will shoot a charge shot at you, so try and fire the missle and jump out of the way of the shot. Takes about 4 missles to destroy this one. Cyclops Leech Hi-Jump and Jumpball Get your missles ready. Stand in the middle of the room, and as the leech comes closer to you, keep moving away from it, until it jumps over you, now stay in this spot. Wait until he jumps into the air and stops. As he's stopped he will open up at the bottom. Quickly run underneath him and fire 2 missles at the eye. Get out of the way before he hits the ground. If he catches you inside of him, just lay a mine and you will pop right out. Every 2 hits he will get a little bit smaller, this will happen 3 times, then as he is at his smallest form, it takes 3 shots and he will become the Core-X. 4 Hits and the Core-X is defeated and you have your Hi-jump and Jumpball abilities back. Serris Speed Boost I find that the easiest way to fight Serris is to latch onto the ceiling and shoot missles straight down as he passes through, every so often he will go up there and hit you, but if you continue this pattern you shouldn't be in any danger of dieing. Grab on the celing just above the 2nd platform on the right. If and when he jumps up to hit you up there, the best thing to do(if you have the reflexes) is to turn and fire the missle right into his face. After 5 hits he will turn into Core-X. 5 more hits and you will receive your Speed Boost ability again. Security Robot None This is the easiest fight in the game. You shouldn't even take one point of damage. As soon as he jumps out at you run all the way to the left. Look at the ceiling, grab hold of the ceiling so that her arm is directly under the line between the 2nd and 3rd block, also make sure your facing to the right. Wait for the robot to come all the way left and crash into the wall. Fire 3-5 missles straight down, go right and jump down. Go to the right and grab the ceiling right in the middle of the 2nd block from the right, make sure your facing left. Don't worry the fire will not hit you. Wait for him to come over and do the same thing but this time drop off to the left. Go back to the same spot you were in at the begining, the fire will miss you. Repeat this process until he is dead. Should take about 3 rounds of missle firing. 10 hits in total. He will then walk off to the right. Try to kill him when he's on the right side, it is suggested to just hit him 3 times every time he gets beneath you. This way it'll take less time for him to walk to the right. Barrier Core-X Varia Suit I think the quickest way to kill this guy is to charge up you charge beam and when he comes at you jump into him and shoot at it. This way you can by-pass the things floating around it. After about 5 hits he's dead and you probably took about 200 dmg, considering you have about 900 health, thats nothing, especially since you gain 500 health after grabbing the Varia Suit. Now Just kill the Core-X, this one takes 6 hits to destroy, and now you have a varia suit. Wide Core-X Wide Shot This guy is pretty simple. After you shoot the scientist run to the right. When it attacks you, jump over it and go the left. When the eye appears shoot a missile and jump over it. Go to the right wait for it to come at you, jump over it again and shoot the eye. Repeat this until you've shot it 4 times and retrieve your wide shot ability. Yakuza Space Jump This one can be a pain. At the start stand to the side of the middle. After the fire comes down to the ground jump to the other side of the fire to avoid Yakuza when he comes down. Now whenever he's running around roll into a ball and sit in the corner, but when he stops run beneath him, if he opens up his mouth fire a barage of bullets at him until you get shot by the fire. Now try and hide. Don't let him catch you, it does about 200 dmg to you in total. After 2 or 3 rounds of bullets he will will lose his legs and become a bouncing head. Get in the corner angle up and sit there firing missiles, you have plenty of them, so just keep shooting until he becomes the Core-X. Shoot that 6 times and now you will have your space jump. Nettori Plasma Beam This guys pretty easy. Get up on the right platform, fire an huge quantity of missiles. When one of the little balls gets close to you, just jump up and fire a normal shot to the left, and start shooting missiles to the right again. After about like 50 of them, he will break up and start shooting plasma beams at you, stay standing on the second platform and keep firing the barage of bullets. you can dodge the plasma beams or not, it's up to you, but if you just stand there and shoot he'll die farely quickly. After he becomes the Core-X, jump to the right and do the same pattern you did for the Wide Core-X. Nightmare Gravity Suit The DREADED Nightmare. Everyone that has ever played this game HATES this mother trucker. Hopefully we won't have too much trouble with how much health we have. Run under him and shoot missiles at his...genitles...until he turns them on...(sorry, I have to pause and laugh...genitles HAHAH)...anyway, Do charge shots and destroy his gravity disrupter. After it begins to flash jump up and grab the ladder on the left. Line up with the head and wait for his mask to blow off. Fire missiles galore until he knocks you off. He will go up and circle around, Jump over him, now try to float close to the ladder when he comes back around, he SHOULD stop and start shooting at you again, this time you should be able to kill him. He will turn into a Core-X. Shoot this guy about 6 times to recieve the gravity suit. When all is said and done, you did so well you should have only taken about 400 dmg. Security Robot(2) Wave Beam This time he isn't so easy. As soon as you enter the room, lay a power bomb, and grab onto the ceiling. He will get into the middle of the room and start firing missiles. Shoot at these to destroy them. Now line yourself up with the first boulder-like object in the ground and he should run over and smash into the wall. Start firing down. When he begins to shoot missiles move to the right the distance thats a little over one of his jumps. Destroy the missiles and then after he jumps move to the left and fire missiles at him. Repeat this until he's dead. After he becomes the Wave Core-X, do the regualar, shoot him in the eye when it appears. Ridley-X Screw attack Pretty easy fight. Use your charge beam and just shoot at his body, avoid hitting the tail though. After 15-20 hits he will scream and turn into the Core-X. Kill it with 6 hits and retrieve your Screw attack. Samus Aran-X None EASY!!! When you enter the room go to the top left and you will hear an explosion. Drop down. Do charge shots on her and avoid being hit yourself. After about 20 hits she will drop down and form into a big monster thats even easier. When she does this, get up next to it angle up and shoot charge shots. It will jump up and over you. Turn around angle up and shoot charge shots. She will repeat this pattern a bunch of times. After a few hits, she's down for the count. Now it's time to kill the Core-X. Do the same as usual about 5-6 hits. I was able to beat SA-X with only taking 80 dmg. No problem at all. Omega Metroid None Another easy fight. When he comes in he will swipe at you and take you down to 1 health. SA-X will come in and start shooting. The Metroid will kill her. Grab the Ice Upgrade. Now hold L and run in and shoot a fully charged shot and two more shots. If he falls back in pain, shoot three more. After shooting the shots, fall back and wait for him to swipe. Keep doing the same pattern until he's dead. Now your ship will come in and save you. Extra special thanks to Revolution reader The Red Skull!
