Ramulkens are a species native to SR388. Their bodies are protected by a hard shell, and beams will not affect them. Their only weak point is their legs. Samus encounters the first one at the summit of a tall Chozo tower. In Metroid: Samus Returns, Ramulkens are purple in color and appear in Area 3. They roll into a ball and quickly charge at Samus, which she can deflect using her Melee Counter or jump over.


  • Ramulkens look similar to the Gravitts.
  • They also bear resemblance to Zazabi in both attack pattern and appearance.
  • It is unknown if they became X Parasite hosts, as Samus did not encounter any Ramulken-X in Metroid Fusion.
