The following entries have been collected and inputted as the appear within our records transmitted by Samus Aran during in incursion of Tallon IV.

NOTE: Though Space Pirates have many different types and variants, the following list was directly related with the Tallon IV incursion.

1.) Morphology: Space Pirate
Sentient aggressor species well trained in weapon and melee combat.

Space Pirates wield Galvanic Accelerator Cannons and forearm-mounted Scythes in combat. This species seeks to become the dominant force in the galaxy, and their technology may help them realize this goal. Ruthless and amoral, the Pirates care little for the cost of their ambition. Only the results matter, and they take these very seriously.

2.) Morphology: Shadow Pirate
Pirate forces trained and equipped for stealth operations.

A select group of Space Pirates have access to sophisticated cloaking technology. This gear drains high levels of power, however, forcing them to rely solely on melee weapons in battle. Use enhanced detection gear when fighting these units.

3.) Morphology: Flying Pirate
Pirates trained and equipped for airborne assault.

Flying Pirates are extremely agile in the air, but the heat signatures of their jet packs can be tracked with Thermal Imaging. While their Missiles are extremely potent, their jet packs can be even more so. If the pack fails, they will make a suicide strike.

4.) Morphology: Aqua Pirate
Space Pirates with exoskeletons modified for underwater use.

Using modified thruster-packs and Gravity Suit technology, the Space Pirates have armorsuits for use in liquid environments. Thermal tracking is still very useful against these units, as the Pirate engineers have yet to eliminate the thruster-pack's high heat signature.

5.) Morphology: Power Trooper
Space Pirate armed with Power Beam technology.

Space Pirates have reverse-engineered several of your weapons, including the Power Beam. A flaw in the design makes these Pirates vulnerable to their own Beam weapon system. These weapons are inferior to your Chozo-designed originals, but still quite potent.

6.) Morphology: Wave Trooper
Space Pirate armed with Wave Beam technology.

Space Pirates have reverse-engineered several of your weapons, including the Wave Beam. A flaw in the design makes these Pirates vulnerable to their own Beam weapon system. These weapons are inferior to your Chozo-designed originals, but still quite potent.

7.) Morphology: Ice Trooper
Space Pirate armed with Ice Beam technology.

8.) Morphology: Plasma Trooper
Space Pirate armed with Plasma Beam technology.

Space Pirates have reverse-engineered several of your weapons, including the Plasma Beam. A flaw in the design makes these Pirates vulnerable to their own Beam weapon system. These weapons are inferior to your Chozo-designed originals, but still quite potent.

9.) Morphology: Elite Pirate
Phazon-enhanced Space Pirate.

Incredibly strong, armored, and well armed. Elite Pirates are potent foes. Their energy-siphon system absorbs Beam weapon shots, which they use to fuel a massive Plasma Artillery Cannon. The nature of this system makes them vulnerable to concussion-based weapons. Well armed, the Elite Pirate is effective in close combat and at a distance. Their massive size can be a weakness, and their sluggish speed allows for evasion and quick attacks.

10.) Morphology: Phazon Elite
Elite Pirate infused with energized Phazon.

The Phazon charged Elite Pirates rely more on their Wave Quake Generators, opting not to carry the vulnerable Plasma Artillery Cannons normally used by Elites. The direct fusing of Phazon into their bodies provides a tremendous level of energy. The drastically lower life span that comes with this process is of little concern to the Pirate Research team.

11.) Morphology: Omega Pirate
Most powerful of the Elite Pirate forces.

Omega Pirate can become invisible to normal sight. It is vulnerable when cloaked, as all energy is drawn from defense systems. By exposing itself to Phazon, it can regenerate damaged tissue and organs. Considered the pinnacle of the Elite Pirate program, this enemy should be handled with extreme caution and maximum firepower.
