A suicide strike is a final attack used by Flying Pirates, Aqua Pirates and Pirate Aerotroopers during the Metroid Prime series. Space Pirates live by a death before dishonor mantra where they would rather die than be captured or fail in their mission. If sufficiently damaged, they will initiate a strike wherein they launch themselves at their targets in the hopes of killing them, while killing themselves in the process. Samus will take severe damage if she is hit by a suicide strike. Using ice, fire or Phazon-based weaponry, however, will allow her to destroy an Aerotrooper before it can strike at her.
