The EMP Grenade (Electromagnetic Pulse Grenade) is a powerful and useful weapon in use by the Space Pirates. When thrown, they release a pulse of electromagnetic radiation with the devastating effect of short circuiting electrical devices. The weapon is therefor of vital importance against strategical points such as Galactic Federation defence systems, or even Samus herself. They have a limited range - the further away you are, the less effective the pulse will be. On the Power Suit (and variations), it has the ability to temporarily hamper the functionality of the visor technology, resulting in short-term blindness.
