Space Pirates can breathe in space (at least Ridley can. Pirates have EVA suits) Plus, it's amazing that their ventilation shafts lead in to important places such as a command center with no doors. Tell me, if you designed your base would continue to create air vents *just* big enough for the person who's torn it down before to get through with ease? Then tell me, would you put your COMMAND CENTER WITH NO DOORS at the end of it?
I'm just making jokes about Space Pirates is all, no need to get defensive. Arrogance= trying to fight Samus alone. Arrogance= GUARANTEEING Lord Ridley you'll bring back the Huntress' head on a platter. Designing YOUR OWN BASES so that YOU CAN'T USE them is just stupid. Hilariously, they are otherwise one of the smartest, most cunning, most dangerous villains in science fiction. Hence why everyone just assumes thet have a psychological obsession with TUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUBES. It's actually quite strange. They have phenomenally scientifically inclined minds, literally the best reverse engineering skills EVER, and they use it to do stupid things, hence, this NSFW (due to the pictures at the top) 4chan thread.
