The Research Facility
The Research Facility is a location featured in Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is located on the Isle of Ancients that floats high above the world, and is adjacent to the Subspace Bomb Factory. The Research Facility is where the R.O.B. Squad conducts scientific research on behalf of the Subspace Army, such as creating clone copies of Samus Aran's Power Suit. Besides researching new weapons, R.O.B.s also guard the facility from outside interference. The Research Facility serves as Ganondorf's base of operations during the Subspace Army's conquest of the world until the facility and the rest of the Isle of the Ancients is annihilated by the mass detonation of Subspace Bombs ordered by Ganondorf himself.
The Research Facility is featured as a two-part stage in Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary, with the first part being the 10th stage, and is accessed after The Forest, whereas the second part is the 19th stage; it is a continuation of the first part, and is accessed after clearing The Swamp.
