A Skreek is a mutated[1] avian enemy that Samus Aran fights during her mission to SR388 in Metroid II: Return of Samus.


Skreeks are found exclusively in the tunnel leading to Phase 7, sharing their habitat with Drivels. They hide in crevasses in the ground, submerged in purple liquid. When Samus Aran approaches, they suddenly jump out to attack her, spitting bullets from their mouths before retreating back to their hiding place.

Because of their avian traits, Skreeks are similar to the Chozo, one faction of which also lived on SR388. However, no relation between the two species has been confirmed.
