Gulluggs are flying creatures that Samus encounters throughout the planet SR388. While they are somewhat docile in Metroid II: Return of Samus, they are extremely aggressive in Samus Returns. They patrol a set location and in the latter game will lunge towards Samus with their sharp, elongated mouth parts. Gulluggs are the first enemy that Samus is properly introduced to the Melee Counter with and ironically gain a stronger variant immune to the counter, while also being the most common creatures encountered in the caverns.
