Plated Puffer

Unknown[Metroid Prime]

Metroid Prime

Mutated Puffer with reinforced epidermis. Phazon exposure has created a mutant strain of Puffers on Tallon IV. They have developed plated skin, making them harder to burst. Concussive weapons can still do the job, however. The gas within the Plated Puffer is just as deadly as that within their 'cousins'.
