Dark Samus, Metroid?

*This thread will probably contain major spoilers about the Prime series, for those of you who haven't played it*



That being said, we all know that at the end of Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime (the final boss) absorbs Samus's Phazon Suit and regenerates as Dark Samus. Therefore, Dark Samus is/was a Metroid. However, how much Metroid is really left in her? Phazon has the ability to corrupt an organizsm, so how far along has Dark Samus been corrupted?

Metroid Prime was able to regenerate Metroids, an ability Dark Samus clearly lacks. So it could be said that the Metroid DNA in Dark Samus has been so corrupted that she can no longer be said to be a Metroid.

However, on Aether Dark Samus frees some Metroids, and they do not attack her. Do the Metroids recognize her as one of their own? Does Dark Samus sympathize with the Metroids, or does she want to free them in order to cause more chaos and destroy the inhabitants of Aether?

But remember, Dark Samus also contains some of Samus's DNA, yet attacks Samus at every turn.

How much Metroid remains in Dark Samus?

Maybe Dark Samus can speak the Language of the Metroids.

Hmm...I don't know about the Phazon Metroids, and right now I don't have the time to research their origin. Does anyone else know? Maybe a logbook scan has some information on them.

EDIT: Bah, I've found the logbook entry. Says nothing about their origin, though. I don't know if it was accidental exposure or intentional that created them.

"Like all Metroids, great cold can immobilize the Phazon Metroid and leave it vulnerable to attacks. If the creature begins to feed, a concussive blast should be able to knock it away. Heavy exposure to Phazon energy has mutated this strain of Tallon Metroid. Subject can shift its body into a phased state, allowing it to ignore solid matter. The creature can emit bursts of Phazon energy, and will drain the life energy of its prey." --Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

Either way, I don't think Metroids are afraid of Phazon. They suck the life force out of things, and since Dark Samus is full of Phazon energy, they might even be attracted to the life force she emanates.

I would say that Phazon Metroids are caused by the SP's experiments on them. On Corruption they first appear after you break the tubes in one of the SP's research Facilities where they were held captive.

Yes, but that doesn't mean they originated there. It could be that the Space Pirates were merely studying them.
