Super Kihunters[1] are variations of the Kihunters found throughout Metroid: Other M.

Description[edit | edit source]

They are blue in color with crystalline growths on their heads and pink wings. They seem to be the next stage of the Kihunters' life cycle, as they replace most normal variants in the latter parts of the game.

However, Super Kihunters are currently seen only within the BOTTLE SHIP and nowhere else. This suggests that either Samus had never before encountered Kihunters who had reached this stage of their life cycle, or they are an unnatural form resulting from experiments and research performed by the scientists onboard the ship.

These Super Kihunters attack by grabbing Samus and then draining her energy. The Super Kihunters are shown to be much more resistent to Samus's weaponry, as even the Charged Plasma Beam will not kill them instantly. Missiles, Super Missiles, Seeker Missiles, Power Bombs and the Screw Attack can be used to kill them, with the latter two attacks being the most effective.

"Kihunters, which look like flying ants, appear in groups. Despite losing wings when injured, they will crawl on the ground toward Samus."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Super Kihunters emit a chirping, cricket-like cry, unlike the screeching sound made by normal Kihunters.
