Description[edit | edit source]
Pincher Flies have a single compound eye and a pair of pincher-like arms, hence their name. They normally fly in simple repetitive horizontal patterns from left to right over small platforms, and near the ceilings of caverns below the surface of planet SR388.
Official data[edit | edit source]
Metroid II Manual[edit | edit source]
"A fly-like creature found in some areas. If touched, they will damage Samus, but they will not attack on their own."
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Pincher Flies behave identically to Meboids, Mumbos, Seerooks, TPOs, and Yumbos.
- It is unknown if they became X Parasite hosts, as Samus did not encounter any Pincher Flies in Metroid Fusion.
- The Pincher Fly does not appear in the remake, Metroid: Samus Returns.
