A Multiviola is a flying adult version of a Viola. It is found in Norfair and in Ridley's Lair. They, in the original Metroid, were blue-green and in Metroid: Zero Mission were orange with 3 mini versions of it surrounding it. This might be why it is called a "Multiviola".
"These simple-structure organisms are reflected off the walls and bounce around. They are pretty powerful but are difficult to attack with the normal beam as the walls reflect them and they are always moving. Use a Power Item to boost power first. One Missile blast will then destroy them."
"These also appear in the fire region. You have to be extra careful of them as they move much faster. These are the products of the life force that Mother Brain breathes into the molten rock. They have the same attacking power as the Holtz and the Dessgeega from the same habitat."
Official Nintendo Player's GuideEdit
"It’s a single-cell creature which flies around erratically, rebounding off walls."
Super Metroid manualEdit
"The fiery Multiviolas bounce off walls and randomly fly in the face of intruders."
"Some move very fast, others slowly. They exist only in exteremely hot areas."
In French versions of Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion , the Dachora is named Multiviola.
