Xenomorphs are mysterious holographic creatures very similar in appearance to Mochtroids. They are encountered in the Survivor mode of Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt. The term "Xenomorphs" is used in reference to these as well as the holograms of both Tallon Metroids and Zoomers, but this article only covers the first of the three enemies above.
Xenomorphs levitate around the area with their two pairs of fangs; the larger ones are extended outward from the sides. They do not actively attack Samus, but can nevertheless harm her by physical contact. They will twist their bodies to disappear before reappearing elsewhere closeby, somewhat increasing their chances of making contact with Samus.
Of the three creatures encountered in this mode, Xenomorphs are the easiest to kill, only needing two Power Beam shots to dispatch them.
- Metroids are also referred to as Xenomes by the Space Pirates in Metroid Prime, such as on the Xenome Containment Unit.
- The Xenomorph description is likely a reference to the Alien film franchise, from which Metroid took much inspiration. In this case, it refers to the titular Alien creatures in the films, which are also referred to as Xenomorphs.
