Pirate Hussars (referred to as a Beast Rider by Paul Tozour) are Space Pirates who are brave enough to be willing to ride the deadly Korakk Beast appearing in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. They are armed with dangerous Phazon Energy Lances. If a Hussar dies, his mount will try to avenge his death. The Hussar is usually killed before the Korakk. However, if the Korakk Beast is killed first, they will both die.

Morphology: Pirate Hussar
Rider of the vicious Korakk. Wields Energy Lance in combat.
Hussars are unusually brave for Space Pirates, willing to ride the deadly Korakk beast into combat. Their Phazon Energy Lances are deadly at any range. Hussars and their mounts have a strange bond. If a Hussar is slain, his Korakk will fight to avenge his death.
- The Korakk Beast battle and the name of the room in which it is fought, Jousting Field, seem to refer to jousting in Medieval Times. Jousting in these times consisted of a knight riding on a horse, whilst yielding a lance and attempting to knock the opponent off his horse.
