The Phazon Elite, also known as Elite Pirate Alpha, is one of four mini-bosses in Phazon Mines in Metroid Prime.

Samus fought and killed it during her mission on Tallon IV, in the Elite Research room of the Phazon Mines. It guarded one of two Chozo Artifacts found in the Mines, the Artifact of Warrior, which Samus needed to open the Impact Crater. Unlike the Elite and Omega Pirates, the Phazon Elite does not wield a Plasma Artillery Cannon, but still has the Energy Siphon used by all Elite Pirates, as well as the Wave Quake Generators. The Phazon Elite appears to be infused with Phazon to a further extent than any other Elite Pirate, with sickly Phazon plates and veins all over its body.

Samus engages the creature.

"Unit ident-code EPG-8642, batch 23, field designation 'Elite Pirate Alpha.' Stasis tank reinforced with Bendezium alloy plates."


  • Wave Quake Generators from the Phazon Elite are launched faster than the standard Elite Pirates.
  • A glitch can be utilized when fighting the creature. If the player stands still in a certain area of the chamber where the pirate is fought, it will simply stop attacking and stare at them. This area where the player must stand is roughly near one of the metal support pillars.
