Alinos was once a very lush and thriving planet full of life, albeit a volcanic one with a very high temperature that was used for geothermal energy. Sometime in Alinos' history it was inhabited by the race known as the Alimbics, who built structures throughout the planet. During this time, the Alimbics began construction of a mighty weapon known as the Alimbic Cannon. Eventually, the planet's core exploded, devastating the structures and features of the Alimbic world. It is unknown how such an incident occurred.

During Samus' mission here, she came upon the Crash Site of what is thought to be where Gorea first landed.

Complete Map of Alinos: [1]


Alinos is intertwined with cracks and fissures from its shattered crust. Each crack reveals canyons filled with lava and heat that further penetrate into the planet's core. Various ruins of the ancient Alimbic civilization have also surprisingly survived the planet's violent past.


Most of the planet's original inhabitants may have become extinct due to the explosion of the planet's core. What life that did survive the catastrophe may be different from its original form. The creatures that now inhabit the new Alinos have adapted to survive the planet's new environment. Constant spewing of lava has caused many creatures to seek refuge within the many intertwining canyons of the planet, as well as within the ancient ruins themselves.

Multiplayer LevelsEdit


  • The theme of Alinos contains the same beat as the Chozo Ruins theme from Metroid Prime.
  • In addition, the architecture of Alinos' crumbling buildings is also identical to that of the Chozo Ruins, even featuring the same glyphs that the latter's former inhabitants carved into their structures. Whether or not the Alimbics were related to the Chozo is unknown, but this implies that the two species had interacted at one point.
  • Spire and Weavel are first encountered on Alinos.
  • Like Arcterra, two hunters are encountered during the first visit of Alinos. One on the way to the Octolith, and one escaping from the planet.
  • Alinos as seen from space bears heavy resemblance to the volcanic planet Mustafar from Star Wars.
  • Spouts of fire shoot up through the lava in rooms featuring it. This feature was present in Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion as well, although these features cause damage on contact, while the Hunters version is entirely harmless.
