Dark Samus shoots crystal

Dark Samus destroys the light crystal by shooting it.

Light Crystal

A Light Crystal

Light Crystals are Xenotech found throughout Dark Aether. They were set there by the Luminoth during the war, to protect them from the planet's noxious atmosphere, and their enemies, the Ing, who cannot stand bright light. They restore Samus' energy units by one every second. Light Beacons are a less stable alternative to crystals.

SuperchargingEdit

Shooting a crystal or beacon with a blast from the Light Beam energizes it. When energized, they deal damage to both the Ing and Darklings.

A blast from the Annihilator Beam can also supercharge crystals and beacons. Like a dangerous, lethal trap, these "Super Crystals" draw the entranced Ing towards them, where they meet an incinerating death. This does not work on most Darklings, however.

Conversely, Ing can fire their blasts at Light Crystals, coating them with dark energy and deactivating them. Samus can do the same with her Dark Beam. She can clear the crystals with either the Light or Annihilator Beam, or alternatively, she can fire a few Power Beam shots or a single charged Power Beam shot at them to clear them. However, she cannot clear crystals that Amorbis has nullified - her shots will simply bounce off. They will eventually relight on their own.

Logbook entriesEdit

Xenotech: Luminoth Light Crystal
Generates protective field of light energy.
Light Crystals provide protection from Dark Aether's atmosphere. They can be nullified by dark energy and supercharged by light energy.

Logbook entry

Light Crystals provide protection from Dark Aether's atmosphere. They can be nullified by dark energy, or super charged by light energy. They were created by the Luminoth during the war with the Ing, and many still remain in use. Dark creatures despise the Crystals: some are injured or killed by the field they create.

Energized Crystal

Generates enhanced field of light energy.
Energized Crystals provide better protection from Dark Aether's denizens. Dark creatures are damaged by the energized field.

Logbook entry

Energized Crystals provide better protection from Dark Aether's denizens. Dark creatures are damaged or killed by the energized field. Some are killed on contact. The extra protection is not unlimited, and must be recharged by the Light Beam to remain in effect.

Nullified Crystal

Xenotech: Super Crystal
Crystal's energy draws Ings into destructive field.
When charged with light and dark energy at once, the Crystal becomes a beacon to Ing. They are compelled to approach it, despite the deadly field of energy it emits.

GlitchEdit

I-Sha

I-Sha hologram

There is a glitch that sometimes occurs when supercharging a crystal with the Annihilator Beam. If used when a large amount of Warrior Ing are in the area, it is possible for one to approach the field but not enter it, and remain there. If Samus stays or strays out of the field, it will not attack her and will remain docile until the field deactivates or the Ing is killed.
