A Cacatac.

A Cacatac, as the name suggests, is a cactus-like plant found only in Super Metroid. It makes its home on the edge of Upper Brinstar, throughout Lower Brinstar, Norfair, and in some underwater sections in Maridia, each location sporting different colors (green, red and purple respectively), possibly to match and survive in the locales that they are found in (although no differences in movement, armor, or battle strategies are expressed between each variant).

It can shoot five thorns simultaneously in five different directions, making it difficult to dodge. However, it isn't as heavily armored as other creatures found near them, so they can be taken down easily before they swell up in preparation for an attack.

Official dataEdit
