canXRayCeilingClip (Hard)

Setting up an enemy positioning to perform a ceiling clip. Jump and Morph onto the enemy, perform an X-Ray standup, and then jump through. The enemy positioning will require approximately 1.5 to 2 tiles between the enemy and the ceiling. Just enough to unmorph while on top of it.

Shoot a Super as a Sciser crawls near the top door, then freeze it mid-air and use it to clip up past the door shell. If you don't have Morph and X-Ray, you must shoot the Super while the Sciser is on the slope near the door, not on the door itself.

Notable: true

Freeze a bug three tiles to the right of the morph tunnel entrance, directly under the tile where ceiling is higher. Jump onto the bug, crouch, and jump up. The bug must be at a very precise pixel height unless using XRay and Morph. Note that although the ceiling here is 3 tiles thick, only the bottom tile is solid; the other two are slopes pushing Samus up, allowing the trick to be done.

Jump and freeze the Beetom at a precise location in order to jump through the crumble blocks. The pixel window is larger and higher with Morph and an X-Ray Stand Up. Two Beetom hits are assumed, but with failed attempts it could take more, possibly requiring leaving the Beetom and going back to the right to farm.

Right Etecoon Shaft - Wall Jump Climb Checkpoint Junction

Notable: true

Break the bomb block at the bottom right of the main shaft. Bring a Zeela down to the bottom of the room. Morph inside the tunnel, take a Zeela hit, then jump, aim down, and shoot to freeze the Zeela as it starts to move up and while Samus is close to landing. Jump and aim down to get on top of the Zeela. If the Zeela is precisely positioned exactly 12 pixels above the ground, you can press up to make Samus stand; Otherwise, if you have X-ray, then the Zeela should be frozen lower, and you can morph and unmorph and use X-ray to force Samus to stand up; in this case there is a 6-pixel window over which it works, with the Zeela being between 4 and 9 pixels above the ground. In either case, after standing up on top of the Zeela, jump and aim down to break the crumble block. Then, before the crumble respawns, morph and use Spring Ball (if available) to jump back up and into the tunnel; without Spring Ball, a quick mid-air morph also works but is more difficult.

Notable: true

Lure the Reo (Bee) to the left to use it as a platform for ice clipping up through the crumbles to the Power Bomb room exit door. Watch the Reo bounce against the left wall until it does a slow hover towards Samus. There is a very small timing of when its right claw is above the small pale spore next to the big red spore, when Samus should jump to be above the Reo. Crouching with Samus' front toe beneath this spore (facing left) will cause the bee to fly with the correct timing after Samus takes knockback damage, with a 3 pixel window. This will cause it to fly left and into the two tile gap below the crumble blocks. Freeze it once to get above it, and then again for the ice clip. Once it is up there, the bee will become stuck and the room will need to be reset. But if the Reo does not fit in the hole, it is possible to just wait near the ledge for another slow hover to try again. With this strat, there is at most a two-frame window in which the Reo can be frozen. One frame (setup dependent) may let Samus crouch jump through the block; the next frame Samus can use Morph and X-Ray to clip through.

Use the Solid Blocks next to the Samus Eater to clip up through the Power Bomb Blocks. The thorns do not cover the entire blocks above. Jump barely only onto the corner to avoid the damage. Carefully jump around the thorns, tunnel crawl slightly to avoid touching the thorns when partial floor clipping. Morph and x-ray can be used instead to setup the clip much easier.

Positioning the Puyo requires it to perform a big jump then start falling with a frame perfect freeze. One possible setup stands on the left tile of the right side and lets the puyo jump up taking a contact hit. Then so long as the puyo isn't on the very edge, it will do a big jump. Clip onto the puyo by doing an aim down jump and switching to a forward diagonal at the right time.
