Dark Metley-Ing is the true villain and final boss of Metroid Prime: The Hunter's Return. It is unknown what its origins are, (if it had any) but it is clear that it was born out of Phazon.
Not much is known about Dark Metley-Ing, but it is clear what its intentions were. It was born out of Phazon a while before Dark Samus was born. The two evil beings found each other, and Dark Metley-Ing decided to use Dark Samus as its puppet, so it possesed Dark Samus. Even after Dark Samus was destroyed on Phaaze, it kept reforming her over and over. Later, when Dark Samus was finally and truly defeated, it erupted out of the Phazon that Dark Samus had left behind, and Samus, Aaron, Ridley, the hunters, and Metley were forced to fight it. It was ultimately defeated after a fatal blow to the heart. It erupted into Phazon and was completely defeated once and for all.
Dark Metley-Ing is the true villain and final boss of MP:THR.
First, shoot the very top of it by running around the arena (think spiral staircase). Then, shoot the big eye underneath the main head. And then enter Mega-Altform mode and ram the chrysalis then shoot exposed underside and heart. Then, the bottom part's eyes will light up blue, so shoot them with any gun to damage it. Repeat a few times to completely defeat it.
