Trophy Description

Metroid Prime mutated into Dark Samus, copying and enchancing Samus' abilites, along with its own special powers. Dark Samus is made of a dangerous substance named Phazon that destroys the minds of its victims. Dark Samus' current whereabouts are unknown, if it is even still alive. The mystery may continue some day...
