How much control does Rundas have?

I'm playing through Metroid Prime 3: Corruption on Hypermode Difficulty and I just put Rundas to rest. I noticed a few things I didn't really think about before. For example, the first time you see dear old Rundas and scan him, you get the Hunter Rundas (normal Rundas) scan. When you approach him as a boss, he stands before you for a short time, giving you the opportunity to scan him again. Here you get the Hunter Rundas (normal) scan once more. It's only when you approach him that he attacks you, and at this point, scanning him will give you the Rundas (corrupt) scan.

The boss sequence is interesting, because you start off fighting Space Pirates, and Rundas comes down and wipes them all out before facing you. This could be because he's still normal Rundas at this point, or it could be because Dark Samus or the corrupted Rundas wants the fight all to himself.

But then, wouldn't he have attacked Samuswhen he saw her on Bryyo just moments before? Why wait until she reaches the a certain area, and then impatiently blast through all the Space Pirates to get a shot at her?

How much control does Rundas have over his actions at this point? Any?

The space pirates are just as much of an enemy to Rundas as Samus. He's under the control of Dark Samus remember. Dark Samus is Metroid Prime and the metroids are enemies of the space pirates.

Yes, but by Metroid Prime 3, the Space Pirates and Dark Samus are working together.

When does this happen? I've played the whole game and gotten 100% and haven't found anything that even hints at them working together.

Are you serious? It's all over MP2 and 3! Did you read all the lores, or just scan them to get 100%?

P.S. Does this mean you have vouchers to trade?

I read all of the lores and there isn't a single thing that I can find that says anything about them teaming up. And yes I do have vouchers.

They don't team up in the Normal sense, but Dark Samus controls them. She basically enslaved them after attacking their homeworld with a Leviathan Seed, and she uses them to attack Bryyo, Elysia, and Norion.

We should trade vouchers! Update your Wii friend code so I can add you.

Then that means that they're just throw away soldiers to her (it?) and she (it?) doesn't care about them at all.

Yes, but not caring about them doesn't mean she's not working with them. Even in Metroid Prime 2, they have the same goal: harvesting Phazon. In Corruption, she works with the Space Pirates to attack the Valhalla, and then she grabs the Aurora Unit and starts making this whole mess. The Space Pirates don't mean a thing to her, but they're still taking orders from her.

Although they don't have any more references than we do, this was taken from the Metroid Wiki:
"Eventually Rundas collapses on the ground and making squelching noises while Phazon erupts from him. Rundas suddenly looks around as if he does not know what has happened, and then lifts his hand up. Rundas is then impaled by a large pillar of ice which erupts from the ground and lifts him into the air. Dark Samus then arrives and absorbs him."
