Pinball frigate

An image of the Pirate Frigate in the game

Pirate Frigate is one of the tables on Metroid Prime Pinball. It is based off the Frigate Orpheon in Metroid Prime.


The table, from the bottom up, is like a typical table in the game. Three flippers, one on the right side, exist, and the Award Scanner is underneath said flipper. The flipper can launch Samus into a chamber where she will hit more bumpers of a different kind. She can go up a ramp to play Wall Jump, on the upper left hand corner.

The minigames that can be played at this table are:


  • The music playing in the background is a remix of the classic Brinstar theme. This theme was later used in Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Norfair stage as "Main Theme (Metroid)".
  • Every once in a while a Metroid appears on the table despite them never being encountered on the frigate ingame in Metroid Prime - however, they do appear there in the comic book retelling, and scans in Prime indicate that Metroids were onboard the ship prior to Samus's arrival.
  • Unlike the actual Frigate Orpheon in its non-destroyed state, the table can be revisited.
