"What's the matter? All I said was that Komaytos look like little Metr—" Non-canon warning: This article or section contains information that may not be considered an official part of the Metroid series in the overall storyline by Nintendo.
Not a bad tracking job! But I still ain't sure about that hundred percent rating, Big Time.
This Zoomer has a reddish-purple carapace with yellow spikes. It displays sapience, since it is capable of speech (often speaking in slang) and is also seen wielding a small firearm. It works under Mother Brain and appears to command a group of Reo that also brandish pistols.
Throughout the comic, the Zoomer questions 'Big Time' Brannigan's self-advertised "100% efficiency rating", claiming that it had heard rumors otherwise. The small spiny foe is assigned by Mother Brain to provide Reo backup for Big Time. The Zoomer and its Reo swarm confront Samus Aran, revealing that Big Time is employed by Mother Brain. After Samus surrenders, the Zoomer and Big Time escort her to Mother Brain's chamber. As Big Time is carried away by the Reos as punishment for letting Samus escape, the Zoomer jeeringly comments that Samus still has her 100% efficiency rating.
It is unknown how this specific Zoomer is sapient, since the rest of its species are canonically considered vermin and do not display advanced skills. It may have something to do with the telepathic control that Mother Brain is said to have over the Metroids in the original Metroid, or it may be simply excused by Deceit Du Jour being a non-canonical story where Zoomers and Reos are depicted as sapient.
