An Autsharp[1] is a Chozo robot in Metroid Dread.


Autsharps appear in Dairon and Ferenia, and were first revealed in Volume 8 of the Metroid Dread Report.

Autsharps sit in a dock where they await intruders, and shoot out from the dock when they detect one, such as Samus. Their exteriors are lined with spinning energy blades, giving them the appearance of a buzzsaw. The blades generate power as they spin,[1] damaging Samus on contact. If it hits a Bomb, the explosion propels it upward, similar to a Bomb Jump.[2] They can be destroyed with Samus's beams if shot quickly enough, but the dock will deploy another Autsharp shortly afterward.

Official data[]

Metroid Dread Report Volume 8[]

"A robotic enemy that shoots out from its dock when it detects Samus. It has a strong, spinning energy blade on its exterior that generates power as it turns, capable of damaging anything it touches. When it hits a bomb, the force of the explosion propels it upward."


  • The name "Autsharp" seems to be a portmanteau of the prefix "aut-" and the word "sharp". The former is shared with many other Chozo automatons from Metroid II: Return of Samus and Metroid Dread. The latter refers to the Autsharp's energy blades.
