! This is a rare creature/object. It may only be scanned in one or few encounters.



An Alpha Blogg is the head of a Blogg pack, having become the largest, strongest and most resilient member of the group.

They are capable of firing sonic disruption blasts, which can hinder Samus' Visor and her weapon control systems if directly hit by the projectiles. They also attack with their titanic triple-jawed maws in an attempt to eat their foe.

Overall, Alpha Bloggs have the same strengths and weaknesses as normal Bloggs.

EncounterEdit

One such Alpha Blogg was found seemingly trapped in the Torvus Bog's lower regions, where it was possibly feeding off of the local Hydlings. It was sealed within the Hydrodynamo Shaft and was unable to attack Samus. However, when she obtained the Gravity Boost, the gates leading back into the Hydrochamber Storage room become locked and the Alpha Blogg is released into the Main Hydrochamber. Samus subsequently destroys it in order to escape.

The Alpha Blogg's weak point is the mouth. The battle's duration can be cut down significantly if Samus keeps the Power Beam charged - when the Alpha Blogg readies its ramming attack, Samus can fire a Super Missile into its mouth as she dodges its frontal attack. Four direct hits kills the creature. Another weapon capable of severely wounding it is the Darkburst; each direct hit in the Alpha Blogg's mouth deals 50% damage. After it is sufficiently wounded, the Alpha Blogg changes its behavior and keeps its mouth closed more often.

TriviaEdit

AlphaBlogg
  • The Alpha Blogg is one of three bosses in the Metroid Prime Trilogy that can be scanned before the battle begins, the others being the Omega Pirate and Spider Guardian.
  • By using a Ghetto Jump and the Gravity Boost, Samus can jump to the ledges and escape the battle with the Alpha Blogg, as the door is not locked.
  • It appears that the Alpha Blogg's horns on its crest are slightly chipped or broken. These are most likely battle scars due to having to fight with other Bloggs in order to prove its supremacy and attain the title of Alpha.
  • Of all the Alpha creatures that Samus has fought, the Alpha Blogg is the only one that was never possessed by the Ing.
    • Though it doesn't have the word Alpha in its name, Quadraxis can be considered a larger, more powerful Quad robot due its similarity to them; essentially an Alpha Quad.
  • The Alpha Blogg is the only boss in the Trilogy to be fought underwater, and after acquiring a corresponding upgrade (the Gravity Boost).
