Core computers: Collect all 10 for a different ending.

Ship scan: Reveals all bosses and Core computers on your map.

Expel computer: Tells you how to perform Expel, but you can do it at any time without having found the computer. Quickly press up, down, left, right, then any Fire key, and Hero will lose 1 hit point while firing a burst of 64 bullets in all directions. Useful for hitting enemies submerged in liquid metal, or dealing heavy damage to bosses and enemies with large vulnerable bodies.

This is the location of Zero, a secret boss. You must reach this room while your level is 0 - to accomplish this you need to use Expel near the start of the game to hit a Drone submerged in liquid metal, then make your way to Zero's room without fighting any bosses. After beating Zero, you get a special pickup that lets you shapeshift into a Metroid, an enemy from the Metroid series, and the graphics of your bullets also change.

The barrier in this room cannot be deactivated, but with Suit level 3 it's possible to survive going through it. At the end of the room is a computer telling you to hold down against the floor for five seconds while holding any Fire key - doing so lets you shapeshift into other machines. You can do this anywhere without having touched this computer.

In the nearby room with the Ship scan, you can move down through one part of the invisible floor. Keep going to reach this computer, which tells you my best speedrun times.
