Metroid-maridiaevir2

Evirs are crustaceous creatures that appear in Super Metroid in Maridia. It is possible that they are the offspring of Draygon or separate members of the same species, and are colored greyish.

They slowly sink into quicksand in various Maridian chambers, but can be stopped from doing so when frozen by Samus with the Ice Beam, and killed if shot with the Plasma Beam. They are able to eject projectiles from their tails in a straight line toward Samus, even when hidden under the sand. A unique, seemingly docile group of Evirs also appear prior to Samus' battle with Draygon and, after the creature's death, they drag the remaining corpse beneath the sand. These Evirs are colored green, and possess only four legs rather than six as seen in the greyish variants. These may be caretakers/labor workers and, based on their colors, seem to be more closely related to Draygon than the hostile Evirs.

Evir-XEdit

Several Evirs were captured and brought aboard the Biologic Space Laboratories research station prior to the events of Metroid Fusion, where they were later infected and/or mimicked by the X Parasites. These specimens, dubbed "Evir-X", reside in the seabed area of Sector 4, and have a slightly different appearance from their normal variants, with thicker plating on their heads, and the overall shell now an orange-yellow color. The projectiles from their tail now orbit around them in steadily increasing circles until they hit Samus or are shot. These changes are likely the results of the X modifying the DNA of their victims.

They will take damage from a fully charged Plasma Beam shot. They can, however, be defeated in a single charged shot if Samus aims at point-blank range in the yellow stomach area. They can be frozen when hit directly in the stomach with an Ice Missile or when touched by a Diffusion Missile's shockwave.

TriviaEdit

  • Since the Evirs' supposed leader, Draygon, is believed to be an important member of the Space Pirate legions, these aquatic creatures can be considered as Pirates or, at the minimum, under their servitude.
