Squeept are a species found on the planet Zebes. They propel themselves out of magma with what appears to be a jet-like function and can be frozen in order to be used as temporary platforms. In the Famicom version of Metroid, they could jump at varying heights.[1]

In Metroid, purple Squeept are indestructible while red ones are not.

  • The Squeept's behavior of constantly jumping out of lava is somewhat akin to the Vorash's.
