Flaahgra is a boss in the game Metroid Prime. Flaahgra was once a normal plant, but was horribly mutated beyond recognition from contact with the substance Phazon. Flaahgra was the source of the poison that tainted the waters inside of the Chozo Ruins, and once defeated the water in the area becomes clean and no longer damaging to Samus. In order to survive Flaahgra utilizes several solar plates surrounding the boss, presumably gathering energy through photosynthesis. It's weak spot lies within it's roots, and it is suggested that Flaahgra's central nervous system is located at the bottom of this structure.
