The Ventilation Shaft is a room in the Phazon Mines, in the game Metroid Prime. It consists of a half pipe, where Samus can use Boost Ball to get into a tunnel leading to Elite Control. The first time this room is accessed, Puffers will emerge from vents in the ceiling, filling the air with their meta-viprium gas. This will continue until an Interface Module in the Control Room is scanned and the ventilation fans are activated.
- Energy Tank
- When Samus acquires the Power Bomb, she must plant one on a Bendezium gate located in the center of the half-pipe near the Omega Research door, follow the Morph Ball passage that it uncovers into the Control Room and scan a control panel. This activates a ventilation fan, pushing the Puffers and the toxic gas into a vent. The Puffers inevitably collide with the vent panel and destroy it, revealing the Energy Tank.
- Ventilation fan
- "Ventilation fan is working at minimal level. Activation of vent system will bring it to full power."
- Ventilation fan (2)
- "Ventilation fan is functional, but offline. An activation panel must be nearby."
- "There is clear air flowing from this Bendezium grate."
