Very similar to other types of Puffer, the Sky Puffer feeds on noxious gasses above SkyTown, and especially likes Phazon gas. As it is stated in its Logbook entry to be native to the planet Elysia, it is assumed to be one of the few biological lifeforms that call the planet home, despite its metallic appearance.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Morphology: Sky Puffer
Vulnerable to basic weaponry. Consumes and emits deadly gases.
The external shell of the Sky Puffer is incredibly fragile, susceptible to most small arms fire. Only a few shots from basic weapons can damage it. Sky Puffers are native to the planet Elysia. They feed on the various noxious gasses in the atmosphere. They are especially fond of Phazon gas.
- In Metroid Prime Trilogy, Sky Puffers appear in room Botanica, replacing the "Dragoon" Battle Drones that were formerly there. They respawn constantly from what appear to be Air Holes.
- Sky Puffers also inhabit the Piston Hall chamber in the PAL version of Corruption, although they were removed in the Trilogy version.
