canCameraManip (Medium)

The ability to scroll the camera to bring enemies or projectiles on or off camera. Most enemes become inactive while off camera, and most projectiles cease to exist. This can be done by jumping in place; changing Samus' hitbox with aim down will scroll the camera lower. By running back and forth the camera will scroll horizontally; Moonwalk can be used to camera scroll without travelling as far.

Notable: true

Start from the Middle Right Door next to the Zeb farm. While standing on the right of the Zeb farm, freeze the Zeb while it is still moving up and facing to the right. Quickly go through the morph tunnel with a Bomb, Power Bomb, or Spring Ball, and get onto the small floating platform just above the Zeb farm. After the Zeb is visible, freeze it and jump on top of it. Use the Zeb as a platform to climb high enough to get it to be aligned with the door. Use the background to see how high the Zeb is - Get the Zeb 2-3 tiles higher than the thinner bright line in the background. Note that if the Zeb is unfrozen and off screen horizontally it will despawn, but if it's off screen vertically it will not. Chase the Zeb towards the doorway, refreezing it as needed.

Notable: true

Get a Zeb to move left into the morph passage, and reach the end of the tunnel before it. Freeze the bug at the correct height, such that it will move and be able to hit Samus while in the morph tunnel. While in the first two-tile tall region, shoot and refreeze the bug. Then go to the second two-tile region and shoot the block. Return and lure the bug such that it hits Samus and boosts her up and onto the ledge to escape. Be careful not to despawn the enemy by moving it off camera, except while it is frozen. This strat is a one-shot try and failure is a softlock.

Spawn a Zeb then run and do a very small spin jump to clip into the first gate before the Zeb reaches you. Do a damage boost off of the Zeb while inside the first gate to get enough speed to clip into the next gate. It is also possible to clip into the gates by aiming down while in the spin jump.

Below Power Bomb Blocks - Main Junction

Freeze two Zeelas to perform an 'Enemy Stuck Moonfall' in order to clip through the Power Bomb blocks. Position one Zeela upside down on a ceiling, and another below it on the ground. The global Zeela paired with either the lowest Zeela, or the other perimeter Zeela can be used, but freezing them together is the hardest part. Freezing one and then unequipping Ice Beam to dispel the ice effect or manipulating the camera can be used to synchronize them. If the moonfall is initiated immediately after freezing both enemies, it is possible to gain enough speed to automatically clip through the enemy and the floor; in this case, hold an angle button to buffer a pose change. Alternatively, and more easily, when one of the enemies is about to thaw, hold backward in order to move forward and fall off the enemy with a buffered turnaround, which will clip through the floor without needing as much fall speed. From directly on top of the Power Bomb blocks, no pose change is needed. Two Super Missiles can speed up the Zeela setup greatly by knocking them off of the wall.

Notable: true

Raise a Zeb to be just below the crumble blocks and blindly freeze it to set up an ice clip to reach the Power Bomb room exit door. Get a bug from the pipe to spawn facing left and freeze it while moving to the ledge below the Hopper room door. While crouched, a spazer or wave beam shot will shoot through the floor in front of Samus. The bug must be frozen at a height between where Samus is crouched and where she is standing. Once frozen, somehow track how long until the freeze effect expires, and when the bug will reach the crumble blocks. If the bug is off camera when not frozen, it will despawn. Refreeze the Zeb below the crumble blocks and ice clip up to reach the door.

Notable: true

Guide the bottom-right MultiViola to the upper section of the room. Lure the Dessgeegas away to avoid killing the multiviola. Remove all enemies and possibly also the row of bomb blocks with a power bomb before attempting to guide the Multiviola. It will need to bounce each room segment multiple times before lining up to go through each shot block. Ice can be used to more safely get around the Multiviola as it is bouncing. However, opening the left side door will change the bounce locations and make the strat no longer possible. Instead the enemy can be allowed to go off camera and then Samus can prepare to run away as it comes back. Waiting in the next room segment is a safe way to wait for the Multiviola to bounce and still be able to break shot blocks.

Notable: true

Roll under the Dessgeegas until all three move off camera and stop chasing Samus. Roll directly from the Morph tunnel, past the first Dessgeega. Stop and let it jump left of Samus, then move it off camera on the next jump. Back away from the Left ground hopper then roll under it. Lastly, manipulate the ceiling hopper off camera if it has followed Samus this far.

Notable: true

Break the shot blocks with Power Beam by first rolling into the morph tunnel to unlock camera scroll for this room. The blocks can now be cleared from the left side by shooting and quickly scrolling the camera to the right a small amount. A shot from crouch will reach the bottom block by following the shot as a ball, or wave beam works from the stairs. Screw Attack is still needed to clear the bomb blocks.

Top Left Door

Near the bottom left door, there are three pathways upwards: one directly above the door and two to the right. Between the right pathways, is a crab moving to the right. Shooting a super against the wall will make it fall off and move left. Climb the crab up the left wall. Watch out for the crab above that is heading into the morph tunnel. Jump to the right platform before the upward crab goes into the tunnel. Lure the crab out of the hole by running to the right of the hill then back left or use moonwalk to scroll the camera. Near the end is particularly tricky. When the crab is on the underside of the metal blocks, freeze it and use it as a stepping platform. To do this, crouch jump and while moving upwards, hold left against the crab to get extra vertical movement. Down grabbing at the top is helpful.

Notable: true

Climb the bottom right wall of Mt. Everest with Ice and HiJump while also luring a crab to the next platform to be used to ascend the next wall. The trickiest part of the climb is getting past the final overhang. This can be done with an underwater wall jump if the crab is low, a precise crouch jump and down grab if it is higher, or a flatley jump off of the crab if it is higher still. Two crabs makes it significantly easier to lure one to the top - simply let one go ahead of Samus. For a faster setup, one crab may be used by perform the final jump as it is unfreezing so it starts moving upward. Then go to the lower ground a bit to the right, jump and aim down to lower the camera to lure the crab. Note: The hardest part of this climb is the pixel precision when jumping around a ledge. Too many pixels: left is a fall, right you clip through the crab, low you miss the jump and fall, high is a bonk or crab clip.

Central Junction with all Standing Pirates Killed
To: 1
Top Left Door

It's possible to climb up with just ice by freezing the wall space pirates (who can be frozen and killed without Plasma). Clearing the gray door lock would require killing the frozen pirate after using it to climb. To do this most easily, freeze the Pirate as high as possible on the left wall. Bait the pirate to jump across the room early so that it stays high on the wall, or bring it on camera by jumping below the platform if the wall pirate gets too low. After reaching the top, it can help to reset the camera by moving to the right on the center platform and then back left.

Notable: true

If entering from the sandfall above, come in at the far left of the transition, with either a spin-jump or i-frames, to avoid the Evir shot; land on the right side of the pillar to the left, being careful to not bring left Evir on camera. If coming from the right side of the room, then moonwalk on the center pillar to scroll the camera as far right as possible, to avoid getting hit by an Evir shot; alternatively, jump slightly to the left and freeze the Evir, then return back to the center pillar before jumping across the sand. Freeze the right Evir and jump onto it. Quickly move left and fire an angle-down shot to freeze the left Evir before it descends too far. Jump onto the left Evir, back up to the right side of it to maximize space to build momentum, and jump to the left onto the sand and then onto the ledge. If Samus does not quite get enough height to make it onto the ledge, then break spin, turn around to the right, land on the sand again, and do a turnaround spin-jump to the left. If the Evirs descend too far, it is possible to use a Power Bomb to bring them back up again, but caution is needed to avoid killing the first Evir, and it is difficult to avoid getting shot.
