  5. Robot Chozo Soldier boss fight.

After the cutscene, you’ll face off with a Robot Chozo Soldier. It’s a fast-paced and relatively short fight, but it’s intense. There are four moves to watch for:

  • Three beam shots. Jump over and round them.
  • Charged beam shot. Jump over it.
  • Blue slash. This move can be melee countered for missiles and energy.
  • Red slash. This move can’t be countered. Your job is to jump and Flash Shift (twice) to get behind the Robot Chozo Soldier.

This fight is all about unloading as many missiles as possible while Flash Shifting back and forth over the Robot Chozo Soldier. Keep as much distance between you as you can. The video above shows the entire fight (warts and all).

You don’t have to counter the blue slashes — worry about getting out of the way first. That said, it’s your only way to resupply missiles and energy during the fight, so keep an eye out for the opportunity.
