Well, not literally. But bear with me here…

I’ve been on something of a Metroid kick lately. Between writing about Metroid Fusion and Metroid Zero Mission on my own blog and watching the At the Buzzer’s Super Metroid Let’s Plays, I’ve been thinking about Samus and her adventures quite a bit. So much so that I just revived an old Super Metroid playthrough that I had started awhile back on the Wii, where I’ve just found the etecoons. Without spoiling too much for those new to Metroid, not everything in that universe wants to kill Samus. In addition to the “kind” Chozo statues (and Samus’s history with that race), the monkey-like etecoons and large birds called dachoras, exist in a couple Metroid games to help Samus.
