If a Beetom is given the chance to attack, it will leap onto its prey and latch on. After it is securely attached, the creature's single eye, which takes up almost the entirety of its front side, will turn red, and the Beetom will begin sucking the energy from its prey, similar to a Metroid larva. Unlike the latter, however, Samus can remove the Beetoms rather easily by shooting them, often killing them in the process.

"These will try to latch onto you. If this happens, roll into a ball and drop two or three bombs."
- Beetoms are similar to Splinters on Aether and Hoppers on Bryyo.
- In the internal data, Beetom is referred to as Nomi.
