Metroid: Alpha Type are unique Tallon Metroid specimens found in Research Lab Aether of Tallon IV in Metroid Prime, where there are two of them in Xenome Containment Units. It is unknown why they have this designation. Despite the name, they do not have any close relation to Alpha Metroids.

This creature does not exist in the PAL version of Metroid Prime; normal Tallon Metroids appear there instead.
