A Moto is a creature native to SR388 that is found in Metroid II: Return of Samus and Metroid Fusion. They have a mask-like structure with horns at the top covering their faces. In Metroid II, their Artificial Intelligence is to walk to the right a set amount and then to walk to the left the same amount. Their backside is most vulnerable to attack. In Metroid Fusion they were infected and/or mimicked by X like the majority of the creatures on-board the BSL Station. These Moto-X have a more menacing look to their facial structure. If it sees Samus, it will charge at her. Shooting enough at its backside or shooting a Missile or Charge Beam shot anywhere on its body will kill it.

In Samus Returns they charge in a straight line towards Samus, which can be deflected by parrying it with Melee Counter. This will stun the Moto with its backside facing Samus, allowing Samus to attack its vulnerable backside. While Melee Counters are the best way to deal with them, Samus can also focus on attacking its backside like in past games. Like most common enemies, Samus can freeze it with the Ice Beam and shatter the frozen Moto with a Missile or Melee Counter. However it can only be frozen if Samus hits its backside.
