Pincher Flies have a single eye and a pair of pincher-like arms, hence their name. They normally fly in simple repetitive horizontal patterns from left to right over small platforms, and near the ceilings of caverns below the surface of planet SR388.
Metroid II ManualEdit
"A fly-like creature found in some areas. If touched, they will damage Samus, but they will not attack on their own."
- Pincher Flies behave identically to Meboids, Mumbos, Seerooks, TPOs, and Yumbos.
- It is unknown if they became X Parasite hosts, as Samus did not encounter any Pincher Fly-X in Metroid Fusion.
- The Pincher Fly does not appear in the remake, Metroid: Samus Returns.
