Science Fair Project Encyclopedia
Being so close to the core of Zebes, Norfair, especially the innermost part, is the hottest natural region of Zebes. The extremely potent heat generated by the magma is capable of melting even the most resilient of metals, which neccesitates the obtainment of the Varia Suit. This upgrade protects Samus from intense heat, although not as well as the Gravity Suit .
Ridley, who lives in Norfair, is the leader of the Space Pirates. He is very large and is purple in colour. His appearance is similar to that of a flying dinosaur. Despite Ridley's appearance and mannerisms, he is actually very intelligent. He is notable because he is the most famous boss character in the Metroid series. He has made appearances in all of the Metroid games except Metroid 2 and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and also made cameo appearances in Super Smash Bros. and its sequel Super Smash Bros. Melee.
Ridley is sometimes found in his own sub-region of Norfair, which is aptly named Ridley. Whether the region is considered separate or not, Ridley is always found in the volatile inner area of Norfair.
