A character from the Metroid series. He was one of the two original minibosses (along with Kraid), and actually fairly pathetic in the first game. There's a safe spot directly in front of him that his fireballs bounce over, so you just have to have a sufficient missile supply. In Super Metroid he was much more important; he's the one who stole the metroid larva, and he's a formidable final challenge before you head off to Tourian. Basically an evil-looking space pirate dragon.
