Life

Io has no water, it is one big volcano (actually 600 or so) in constant eruption...pretty cool though.

Actually Mercury is not tidally locked, it is in spin-orbit resonance, rather than being tidally locked. it is locked to its own orbit around the Sun in a 3:2 resonance. Every part of it gets sunlight at some point and would be baked into a char.
