- This article is about the enemy projectile in Nintendo Land. For other uses, see Rocket (Disambiguation).
In Metroid Blast, several enemies will fire Rockets at the Mii players. Purple Geemers can only fire one Rocket at a time; Kraid will fire two Rockets at a time during his second and third phases of battle, even when his weakpoint is exposed; Ridley and Ice Ridley can fire multiple Rockets at once from their backs.
These Rockets home in on players. If a Mii is hit, they will be sent flying back and lose a life point. However, Miis can safely destroy Rockets by shooting at them.
A Rocket is also available as a prize for the Nintendo Land Plaza, which can be randomly unlocked by spending coins in the central tower's pachinko game. When interacted with, this prize launches a Rocket into the air where it harmlessly explodes, and then a new Rocket is spawned in its place.

"This enemy weapon leaves a trail of black smoke in its wake."
- The Rockets' use by Ridley and Ice Ridley may be a reference to Meta Ridley's Multi-Missile System in Metroid Prime.
