The Lightflyer is a security artificial bioform created by the Luminoth. At some undetermined point, they became rogue like most mechanized objects. However, the Lightfliers did not turn to serve the Ing like the majority of mechanoids; instead they attack all living beings that approach them. The only function they now possess is to protect various religious sites with great importance to their original creators.

Upon sensing an intruder, they would attack with a bolt of electricity, slowly draining its life.

If destroyed on Dark Aether, they create Safe Zones. These protect Samus while on her mission.
