|Power Bomb Guardian|
The Power Bomb Guardian.
|Featured in||Metroid Prime 2: Echoes|
|Location||Undertemple, Dark Torvus Bog|
|Attacks||Power Bombs, Inglets|
The last of the Sub-Guardian bosses, Samus fights the Power Bomb Guardian in the Undertemple of Dark Torvus. Ing possession has enabled the Sporb to fire Power Bombs rather than needles, and also is impervious to Samus's weapons. The only way Samus can destroy the creature is by crushing it with the bridge that is suspended above the Darkling. To do this, Samus must ride Spider Ball Tracks around the room and lay Bombs in the four Bomb Slots holding bridge clamps in place. The Guardian will attempt to disengage Samus from the Tracks by throwing multiple Power Bombs in her direction. The Guardian possesses some level of intelligence, as it attempts to predict Samus' movements and target areas in front of Samus, rather than where she is. Many Inglets also defend the creature from the ground.
Once all four bomb slots are activated, the ceiling locks disengage and the bridge crushes the Power Bomb Guardian. A new track opens up, allowing Samus to reach the ceiling area and reclaim her Power Bombs.
- The Power Bomb Guardian is the only Sub-Guardian that was a possessed plant and the only Darkling Sporb seen in the entire game.
- The Power Bomb Guardian and the Spider Guardian are the only bosses that are not directly harmed by Samus's weapons.
