A map of Chozodia. The parts in green are original Zebesian ruins and parts of the Wrecked Ship, while the blue is the Space Pirate Mothership.

Chozodia was the main Chozo temple on the planet Zebes and was likely used for many Chozo rituals and ceremonies. After the Zebesian Space Pirates attacked and forced the Chozo to abandon the planet, Chozodia was left in ruins and seemingly remained undisturbed by any sentient beings for some time.

When Samus Aran returned to the planet to destroy Mother Brain, Ridley landed the Space Pirate Mothership near Chozodia before leaving for his lair. Some time later, the Pirates connected their ship to the Chozo ruins with a glass bridge, and began excavating the temple as well as installing unique Pirate Alarm Systems to catch possible intruders. Samus was later forced to explore Chozodia after she was shot down by Space Pirates. The area also contains segments of the Wrecked Ship, though it is only during the events of Super Metroid in which Samus will be able to completely explore it; other than this, the rest of the area has only appeared in Metroid: Zero Mission.

Scattered throughout Chozodia are copious amounts of hieroglyphs, and carvings of Chozo (including one that attacks Samus) similar to the designs of the ancient Egyptian civilization on Earth. The Power Bomb upgrade was located in this area prior to its theft by a Space Pirate. The Chozo Statue holding the upgrade was very similar to Chac Mool, an ancient Mayan statue holding a plate on its hands.

  • At first sight, it would appear that the Space Pirate Mother Ship, upon its destruction, becomes the Wrecked Ship. However, once the glass bridge has been broken, Samus gains access to several sections resembling parts of the ruined vessel seen in Super Metroid. Also, developers have firmly stated that the Pirate vessel and the Wrecked Ship are separate ships, citing the area in Crateria that appears to be the outside/inside of the Wrecked Ship (present before the Pirate vessel landed).
  • Upon gaining the fully powered suit, a fast-paced remix of the Brinstar theme is played. It is not in the Sound Test in the Extras menu.
