Chapel of the Elders is a room in Phendrana Drifts in Metroid Prime. It is the location of one of the area's bosses, the Sheegoth, and the room in which Samus collects the Wave Beam. It is a large, roughly square room with a small enclosure closed off by walls in each of the four corners. When the Beam, which is visible on entry, is approached, it retracts into the floor and two of these walls lower, revealing a Baby Sheegoth behind each; the others lower once these have been defeated, revealing more young Sheegoths. Each corner also contains a number of containers to replenish energy and Missiles.
Once the four Baby Sheegoths have been defeated, a Sheegoth enters by smashing through the back wall. This can be defeated to make the Wave Beam power-up available again, so that it can be collected. The Ice Chapel theme plays in this room.
The chapel is mentioned in the Sheegoth's trophy description in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
