Ruins Entrance is a room in the Chozo Ruins in Metroid Prime. It is a small room, open to the sky, with a sandy floor containing several broken pillars, whose age cannot be identified by carbon dating according to a scan. Two Beetles attack when Samus walks into the open area. The Chozo Lore entry "Beginnings"/"Fountain" is on a plaque above the door.
- 2 Beetles
- "These pillars have collapsed from erosion. Carbon dating cannot determine the age of the structures."
- Fountain (NTSC only)
- "Our sanctuary grows by the day. We Chozo know much of technology, but we have chosen to leave it behind on this journey. Our home here on Tallon IV will be a place of simplicity: structures hewn from the stone, bridges woven with branches, hallways caressed by pure waters. We build around the ancient and noble trees, drawing from their strength and giving them our own in return. All that is wild will flow around us here: our race will be just one more group of creatures in the knit of nature. It is our hope that such a state will bring with it greater wisdom, a greater understanding of the nature of the universe. Once our city here is complete, we will peer inward and discover the truth."
- Beginnings (PAL only)
- "The history of the Chozo stretches back into ancient times, so far into the fog of the past that we know not where our ancestors came from. One thing is clear, however: the Chozo who colonized Tallon IV made a conscious chice to eschew a civilization of advanced technology. We Chozo chose to live in harmony with nature, guided by the providence of the universe. We believe we will spend peaceful days here and plan to leave our words from time to time."
