Insect0701 (as named in internal texture data) is a small, spider-like creature in Metroid: Samus Returns. It is seen in the background of Area 1 rooms such as the vertical chamber, crawling alongside the cliff walls. The creature cannot harm Samus or be harmed by her. It has a purple body with a green stripe down its side, lined by two white stripes, and four legs with white tips. This is one of several background, non-hostile species included in Samus Returns, with others including both Bigbug creatures, the Animworm, and Robotsmall and Robotbig.
