This area represents the furthest depths of the earth where humans have ever stepped foot. This cave was originally used for mining operations when humans lived underground, and now with the mutants constantly damaging the structural integrity of the cave, it sits on the verge of collapse.

Area 7, also known as the Subterranean Depths Area or Planetary Depths Area, is the seventh stage of Blaster Master, Blaster Master: Enemy Below, and Blaster Master Zero. The mutants are on high alert in this secluded section of the underground, with particularly hardy specimens roaming on patrol. Blaster Master Zero introduces some stealth gameplay, encouraging the player to dodge searchlights and sentries in both side-scrolling and top-down modes and punishing failure with pursuit by extremely hard-hitting foes. Area 7 is connected to Area 2 in Blaster Master and Area 4 in Blaster Master: Enemy Below, requiring the Wall 1 Operation Mode to access; in Blaster Master Zero, it is connected to Area 3, requiring the Wall Climb Operation Mode, and replaces the entry point to Area 8 from Blaster Master.

Eve: Looks like this data matches the information we have in SOPHIA's database... Jason, I just got confirmation. The one who is commanding all these mutants, the Mutant Lord, is in the area after this one.
Jason: Got it, thanks. Now we just gotta find a way to get outta this area, but...
Eve: Yeah... there's probably a lot of mutants here. To make matters worse, it looks like the mutants who left the Glacier Area made their way over to this one.
Jason: No way... Do you think they anticipated that we were coming here?
Eve: I wanna say "no way!" but with the Mutant Lord being an intelligent creature... you never know.
Jason: If that's the case, I doubt they are gonna let us just stroll on through. Alright, let's try to find the path of least resistance here.

Jason: So this Acceleration Blast lets SOPHIA use all of its power in one concentrated, super-powerful blast, huh?
Eve: It won't fire unless your SP gauge is maxed out, but make no mistake... it has tremendous power. However, using it can be quite a burden in a number of ways...
Jason: Looks like I'll have to use it only when the timing is right.
