Chute Leech as seen in Metroid II.

The Chute Leech is seen in Metroid II: Return of Samus. They are found on SR388. It has a flat body and will lie dormant until Samus walks by. Its attack is to jump into the air and then glide down, swaying from side to side using its parachute-like body. Artwork seems to indicate that they have four eyes.

The Zebesian Choot is almost identical to the Chute Leech, but has some minor differences.

Official dataEdit

Metroid II manualEdit

"Usually they will lay quietly on the ground or in the liquid. But, when Samus comes close, they will jump up to attack, falling down like a leaf from a tree."


  • Octrolls in Metroid II behave the same as Chute Leeches, but dwell in Acid.
  • It is unknown if the Chute Leech species was infected by the X Parasites, as Samus never encountered any Chute Leech-X in Fusion.
