Phazon Metroids are a Metroid mutation that appears in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. They are Tallon Metroids that have been created by the Space Pirates by infusing Metroid cocoons with Phazon radiation. The mutagenic properties of Phazon resulted in the birth of these deadly creatures. The Metroid's epidermis glows with Phazon energy. These creatures are stronger than other juvenile Metroids and can even pick up Samus if she's in Morph Ball mode. As well as there energy-siphoning ability, Phazon Metroids are capable of shifting out of normal spacetime, becoming intangible. As with other Metroid types, they are vulnerable to cold.
