Zebbo (Japanese: ゼボ (zebo?)) is a type of 'pipe enemy' found mostly in Ridley's Lair on Zebes, but throughout the planet in Super Metroid. They have a very bee-like appearance. They are found in Metroid, Super Metroid, and Metroid: Zero Mission. In Super Metroid, the creatures can be witnessed not only coming out of Air Holes, but also out of several Samus Eaters; Zebbos infinitely spawn out of those two structures, suggesting they have hives built within them.

Official dataEdit

Metroid manualEdit

"These fly out of the air holes. A single blast will lay the blue ones flat, but it takes two blasts to destroy the yellow ones. These are the weakest opponents in the hideout."

"Small and weak. They're easily destroyed with any weapon you have in your arsenal."


  • Zebbo's name may be derived from "zebûb", a Hebrew word meaning "a fly".
  • Zebbos bear a resemblance to War Wasps, and may in fact be related to them.
