Officially Phase 1 of the mutation series, Alpha Metroids are overall relatively primitive compared to the previous incarnation. Its primary attack consists of ramming you down like a bull, and it has a very slow levitation movement. The very top horn carries a poison that won't kill you, but causes a temporary paralysis. At this stage, the Metroid starts developing its eyes, but it is still fairly blind and relys on motion to detect its prey.
