[edit] Overview

The Swarmbot is a flying drone that resides on Elysia. Being the Elysian equivalent of the Phazon Nightbarb, they travel in groups and can unleash devastating attacks. Forming a ring, they circle at an increasing pace to generate energy and then release it at Samus in a powerful, concentrated burst. If the Swarmbots are not all destroyed at once, the broken formation will proceed to divebomb Samus in a suicide-attempt to cause further damage.

Interestingly, the boss of the Leviathan Seed on Elysia in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption has the ability to control these drones. Helios uses them to great advantage, for both offensive and defensive purposes. Commanding them to form a number of unique patterns, he uses them for various devastating attacks, as well as making him extremely hard to damage.

[edit] Logbook Entry

"Swarmbots tend to travel in groups. They can evade many inbound attacks, and can perform aerial manuevers that make them nearly impossible to damage. They can generate pulses of energy to damage or disrupt enemy targets. As a desperate measure, they will perform suicide runs on an enemy."
