They have a very bee-like appearance. Zebbos infinitely spawn out of pipe-like structures, suggesting they have hives built within them.
In Metroid and Zero Mission, Zebbos can be found only in Ridley's Lair, most notably in the long corridor through the bottom of the lair. In Super Metroid, they can instead be found in Brinstar, Crateria, and Maridia. In Super Metroid, the creatures can be witnessed not only coming out of Air Holes, but also out of several Samus Eaters; this suggests that the Zebbos and Samus Eaters may have symbiotic interactions with one another.
"These fly out of the air holes. A single blast will lay the blue ones flat, but it takes two blasts to destroy the yellow ones. These are the weakest opponents in the hideout."
"This bee monster flies out of the air vents. In narrow passages, it is easy to take lots of damage, so it is inefficient to collect energy in those situations."

"Small and weak. They're easily destroyed with any weapon you have in your arsenal."
- Zebbo's name may be derived from "zebûb", a Hebrew word meaning "a fly".
