For anyone who's wondering, I just made up the name Teragaian Parasite. I just needed a name for Lavos's species. Samus always comes across as a very knowledgeable and experienced warrior, so I figured she probably had heard of, and perhaps even battled another like Lavos before. However, she doesn't seem to thrilled about having to battle this one.
I HATE the Leviathans. >.<
Yay! Samus has combat experience with Lavos-like creatures. But its something she doesn't want to go through again, and the first time she had her Chozo armor...poop. By the way, did you make up that name by combining "Terra" and "Gaia," which are different names for Earth? Because then it would be like "Earth parasite" which is pretty clever.
He probably is, and that is exactly what Lavos is, it burrows into a planet and feeds off the energy and lifeforce of everything on it, manipulating evolution to get a better supply of energy from the snacks above.
Actually, terra is Latin for land Angel85.
@ Corey, yeah, but "land" is a synonym for earth, thats why a common name for humans in sci-fi is "Terran" rather than "Earthling" The two terms are pretty much interchangeable.
If even SAMUS is relunctent to fight any of Lavos' kind, that means we haven't got a prayer...
Actually it's TERAgaian Parasite.tera looks like tear,so i assume it means earth crushing parasite,well,considering it grows on planets like the celestials.
perhaps samus met a celestial,or galactus,or even the adjudicator?
