Alcoon[1] is an enemy in Super Metroid.


The creatures are bipedal Dragons, and have short, stubby wings. The anatomical purpose for these wings is unknown, as they are too small for flight. They may aid the Alcoons in vaulting out of their burrows to surprise their prey.

This creature lives in Norfair and Crateria and pops up from its hiding place as Samus Aran approaches and starts shooting fireballs at her. Alcoons are a green color in Crateria, a crimson-orange color in Norfair and Ridley's Hideout, and a darker, blueish-silver color[citation needed]. These palette changes are purely cosmetic however, as they are all exactly the same otherwise. These creatures can be damaged by both beams and Missiles; by using the Wave Beam, Samus can shoot an Alcoon that is still hidden.
