This is the most common of the Metroid mutation. Samus encountered these Metroids while on Planet Zebes during her first mission. Metroids will cling to any creature that they can find, drawing its victim's life energy away. Their preferred method of attack for humans is above the head. Once this happens, it is permanent until your life essence is drained. They are opposite of their former mutation, as they prefer a head on attack and will instead hunt and seek YOU down this time. The reason why scientist were astounded with the Metroid species was because of its energy absorbing and producing capabilities. Only the Ice Beam can immobolize them giving you time to shatter them with any other beam weapon.
