Scorchbug

Unknown[Metroid Prime]

Metroid Prime



Scorchbugs are exclusively found on Fuel Gel-producing planets such as Bryyo. The tiny insects subsist entirely on the volatile gel. Like many creatures with this diet, they have taken on the ignitable characteristics of their food source. When shot with any type of weaponry, they burst into a small explosion, leaving behind only a scorch mark. It is from this trait that they have earned their name.
