! This is a rare creature/object. It may only be scanned in one or few encounters.

Greater Ithraks are two-legged, predatory, vaguely reptilian inhabitants of the Tetra Galaxy and are much fiercer than their Lesser Ithrak cousins. Greater Ithraks are invulnerable to damage from the front whilst on the ground; their weak spot is their tail. The only time Greater Ithraks can be injured from the front, however, is when they are struck while still clinging to a wall or dropping. They are found at the New Arrival Registration and Sanctorus. They slightly resemble the Dragotix from Metroid: Other M.

Logbook entry

The impenetrable hide on this cousin of the LESSER ITHRAK makes it a formidable threat. Anecdotal evidence suggests that frontal assault is ineffective against this aggressive predator.


  • The Greater Ithrak's two-legged structure and vulnerable back region make them similar to the Sheegoths (along with Baby Sheegoths), Grenchlers, Motos, Grapple Guardian and Gigafraugs.
  • The Greater Ithrak encountered at the New Arrival Registration is the only Ithrak member not to be seen hanging first before it drops to attack Samus.
