Default Metroid Fusion help!

I'm in sector 5 and am stuck on the boss fight with nightmare.... I don't know how to beat it! I die every time... I get passed his first stage and then he just flies around hitting me and I never have the chance to get him.

Go around the room in circles, it's kinda hard to time it right, you just have to learn it. He'll stop in the air and move toward you, just UNLOAD missiles into him by hanging on the ladder.

Nightmare was hard. It took me quite a few times... Until I learned the trick to killing his early stages fast.

When he pops up, jump high in the air and he will follow. Then run under him and pound with rockets. You can easily get him to the second stage, no damage.

Second stage, use the charge beam and simply pound on him. Dodge the best you can.

When you get to the face melty stage, hang on the ladder and pound away with rockets. Keep doing that until he hits you, then he should start zooming around the room. Dodge and repeat. That killed him for me. I had a few health bars left over.

Of course, it took me a long time to find that pattern and kill him...

...and there are, in my opinion, much harder enemies to kill a little later on. Yow.

Well, good luck.

Heh, yeah, you gotta keep your cool vs. the core-X. Sometimes the boss gets you so riled up, you lose your concentration. The core isn't hard, you just need to be precise to kill it without taking much damage, and you're likely to be nearly dead by that point. Nightmare gave me more trouble than any other boss in the game, so don't worry. It doesn't get any harder.

I finally beat him!

And then I went on and faught the SA-X... I died the first couple of tries but then I finally beat him, did what I had to do, and then went to my ship. I then died against the boss right at the end... it got me so angry because the SA-X was really tough, and there were no save points available after you killed him.

My stats were something like this:

time completed
5:15

Item collection:
47%

the item collection really shocked me, as I had only enough room on the HUD for one more energy block... I guess I missed just about all the power bomb and missile upgrades... but I had well over 100 missiles

You've got to be kidding me! Man, I can't beleive I missed that much... and then actually beat the game with less than half my max health.

Whoa...

But anyways, I am going to have to say that that was one awesome game. I just beat it and I'm going to start over today... going to take my time and try to find everything

You should try the challenge that some people are doing at GameFAQs. Try getting through the whole game with only no more than 1%.

you cant do it with only 1%...
youd need some items that are integral to moving forward in the game

super metroid was 14% i think.

From what I just read, you can pick up the suits and stuff but they won't add to the 1%. It's only collecting the missiles and bombs that will cause the percent to go up. So, you can't really pick up any except for the one that you have you pick up.

I thought that percentage was how much stuff you examined with the info visor thingy...

Metroid Fusion. Not Prime.

EDIT: Actually, the % in prime has nothing to do with scanning, either. It's always items found. Scanning everything will unlock some image galleries, though.

I think I had the same number of energy tanks when I finished the game the first time. And close to the same % of items collected. And yes, the game = awesome.

Ah Yeah, Metroid Fusion. There are:
48 Missles (250)
20 Energy Tanks (1999)
and 38 Power Bombs (76)

There are tons of them, and in order to see Samus without her suit you'll have to complete one of the following:

100% Under 4 Hours gives you one of the Snapshots of Samus (She looks better then in Prime)

100% Above 4 Hours gives you another Snapshot (Still nice).

And above %50 Under 2 Hours gives you the best Samus Screen Shot!

is there a chance of posting these screenshots if you have a copy of them

i'll probably never finish it with any of that criteria so i'd like to see the shots if you have them, best to post the links incase others don't won't to see them.
