The Agon Wastes, also known as Agon Sector, were previously the Agon Plains. Back in the Golden Age of the Luminoth on Aether, these lands were vast, lush plains stretching out as far as the eye could see. However, the atmospheric changes that occurred when the Leviathan crashed scorched the plains, leaving nothing but a barren, arid desert. The Agon Wastes also house the Agon Temple, the guardian of which was I-Sha before his death. Its Dark Aether counterpart was Dark Agon.

The Agon Wastes are home to many unique creatures, such as Lumites, Sandiggers, and Sandbats. The Space Pirates have a mining facility in its cave systems, and almost all of Agon is under their command. Few signs of Luminoth civilization can be seen, as the Pirates have mined the sector to search for its resources.

Areas and main roomsEdit

This sector can be divided into two areas:

Similarities to Chozo RuinsEdit

Agon Sky

The landscape of the Agon Wastes.

The Agon Wastes are somewhat similar to the Chozo Ruins from Metroid Prime. Like the Ruins, the region is desert-like, and has ruins left behind by the ancient species that lived on the planet. They each have ambush predators such as Sandiggers, from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes or Beetles, from Metroid Prime. Counting the Great Temple as a sub-area of the Temple Grounds, they also both act as the second areas explorable via the natural route of the game. Lastly, they seem to both have statues, like the statue of the Amorbis, or the many Chozo statues and relics, and in Metroid Prime's case, most Chozo Artifacts.
