Barbed War Wasps are the more dangerous cousins of the War Wasp and are distinguished by their emerald green abdomen and their projectile stingers. A colony of them resided in a huge hive in the Burn Dome of the Chozo Ruins. Samus traveled to the room in search of her missing items, after her landing on Tallon IV, and found the Incinerator Drone which begun to attack her. The wasps attacked Samus when she damaged the machine, causing it to shoot fire into their nest. Once the machine destroyed the nest, Samus never encountered Barbed War Wasps again in Metroid Prime. They returned in Metroid Prime Hunters where they were in the Ice Hive in Arcterra and appeared when an electric charge coursed through the hives. In that game, there were two variations of the regular version: Blue Barbed War Wasp and Red Barbed War Wasp as well as the original version.

Barbed War Wasps attack by launching a poisonous stinger, which does a small amount of damage and slight visor interference. In Metroid Prime, they were the only War Wasps to have a ranged attack, while in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes the normal War Wasps found on Aether attack with an energy beam.

These wasps appear to make their nests on the ceiling rather than a wall, like regular War Wasps. This variant also seemed to prefer (or at least be resilient to) hotter temperatures, as shown by the creation of their nest in the Burn Dome, as well as the fact that the Incinerator Drone merely agitated the insects with its flame as opposed to killing.

Unlike standard and Ram War Wasps, the horns on the shells of Barbed War Wasps curve up and forward over their heads.
