Aeion Orbs are a new pick-up featured in Metroid: Samus Returns, which are similar to the Energy Capsules of past games. They are small, floating orbs of Aeion that when collected, restore Samus's Aeion Gauge. Aeion Orbs are dropped from enemies that are killed or successfully countered or killed. They have a gold color in contrast to the purple of Energy Capsules, and are much more plentiful than Energy Capsules, even appearing when Samus's Aeion Gauge is full. There are also Big Aeion Orbs in certain locations that fully restore her Aeion.
