Even the most powerful enemy can be felled with the correct weapon. That is assuming they're distracted enough for you to use it.
This is what we in the industry call a weakness cycle
So it was just an ordinary space pirate, those guys are surprisingly resourceful. Then again with a species that mastered genetic engineering and interstellar space travel to the degree they have to be pretty smart.
actualy, in the prime games bio-engineering technology is implied to be the only thing they made themselves. Everything else is reverse engineered from things they've scavenged scanned or stolen.
All the more reason to say they're pretty damn resourceful because they still need to get close enough to scan or steal things, and they put their own twists on the scavenged tech. Besides, they're the only race to even remotely control metroids.
Well that explains the *TIP* sounds from the previous comic.
You mean besides the Chozo, who invented them? Or am I missing some important Metroid lore here?
I guess the major reason why Space Pirates sometimes seem incompetent is more or less because Samus doesn't have any tremendous weaknesses to exploit (aside from the special case of being without her power suit) but all forms of Pirate are pretty good at exploiting weaknesses when they are found, hence their limited ability to control metroids I suppose, though it helps when you don't care about losing members of your science team from time to time. :D
Heh heh. They do seem to love to play with stuff they cant control. Constantly trying to control Metroids, and in this comic, and future games, perhaps, SA-Xs.
I suppose the idea is, "if you (the pirate), cant handle it, then perhaps neither could the hunter."
Yes you are. Metroid, meaning "Ultimate Warrior" or something, was created to fight the X Parasites. But in the end they were too powerful and got out of control - like a medicine that develops cancer.
Then they found Samus. And SHE became their Ultimate Warrior.
Meaning Samus could be called Metroid even BEFORE Metroid Fusion. But of course X-Queen does it because of the Metroid DNA...
So you see, the Chozo couldn't control the Metroids but Samus.
One problem, Talon IV, the planet from Metroid Prime had native Metroids, they naturally occurred on that planet but the X parasite was on SR-388 and nowhere else, I don't think the Chozo actually created the Metroids but rather collected some from their Talon IV colony and brought them to SR-388 because the way they fed meant they were a perfect natural enemy for the X parasites. The ones on Aether were brought by the Spaces Pirates from Talon IV, also in Fusion they claim the Metroids to be the X parasite's natural enemy implying the two are connected, if the Chozo DID make Metroids they had to have made X parasites too. Could be wrong but it seems logically correct.
Talon IV was a planet terraformed and colonized by Chozo. It's possible that the talon metroids were 'leftovers' from an early test prior to the creation of the main type, that simply got out after the Chozo disappeared.
or, alternately, perhaps the the talon metroids are the base species from which the 'real' metroids were engineered from, and the chozo simply accelerated the evolution of the other kind. After a while, the talon metroids caught up.
Gotta think.. is this really a good thing...? I mean, once she's a core-X, she can still bash everyone to death, and should she lose her shell, she could infect someone. Lavos? I dunno. Nack? perhaps.
That Space Pirate maybe?
