Humans are recurring species that appear in the Metroid series. They don't seem to be any different from real-life humans, save for their advanced technology, such as cybernetic enhancements. As they did not evolve to grow body parts that can be used as a harmful weapon, they are physically weak. However, they are mentally superior to many other species, and are able to make powerful weapons to make up for their weak strength. They make up most of the Galactic Federation and helped create it as referenced in the Metroid manual. Their primary spoken language is English. Samus Aran is a human and possibly the most powerful human in terms of battle capacity. Some Androids have been created that resemble humans, such as MB.

Early Phendrana Drifts concept art suggests that a Human facility was originally planned to have been included in Metroid Prime.

Humans have been known to be included in Ridley's diet- while it may not be only humans, Ridley is able to consume their flesh in order to regenerate his own. The X Parasites and Ing are also capable of infecting Humans along with most other species.
