The room upon first entrance
|Game||Metroid Prime 3: Corruption|
|Notable features||Sheet of ice, Kinetic Orb Cannon|
|Significance||En route to Screw Attack|
Imperial Crypt is a room in Bryyo Ice. It appears in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. As its name suggests, it is the room in which deceased Bryyonian royalty are interred. Four of these tombs line the walls of the Crypt's upper half. However, the seals over two of them have since fallen away, exposing the skeletal remains of the deceased Bryyonians within.
The upper half of the Imperial Crypt consists of a large hallway, with a large chasm in its centre. This is initially covered by a floor of destructible ice. When Samus first enters, she cannot go through the door adjacent from her, as there is a Blast Shield covering it. She will have to destroy the ice floor and drop to the bottom, going on from there. At the bottom is a Kinetic Orb Cannon that can be used if Samus wants to go back up before getting the Screw Attack for whatever reason, but it must be energized with a Spinner first.
