Automs are an indestructible defense mechanism that flies around horizontally. This mechanoid activates a flamethrower when Samus comes near. Automs appear as enemies in Metroid II: Return of Samus, found in Area 3, and Metroid: Samus Returns, found in Area 5. Instead of a flamethrower, they use a laser-targeting system and aim both up and down. They are no longer indestructible as well, able to be destroyed with the Plasma Beam.
