Geemers (ジーマ, Geemer) are enemies in the Metroid franchise.


Geemers are basic enemies from many Metroid games. They originally debuted in the first game in the series with the name "Zoomer", although it was more accurately re-translated as "Geemer" in Super Metroid; Metroid Prime would later establish Geemers and Zoomers as related species. They are not immediately hostile to Samus, and simply move along the borders of terrain. Geemers are generally weak and easily dispatched by a few shots.

The Smash Run appearance of the Geemer is based on its design in Other M, which in turn is modeled after its sprite from Super Metroid.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, shadow versions of the Geemers appear inside Master Fortress.

In Smash Run[edit]

Geemers appear as enemies in Smash Run in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. They move along the shape of the terrain, often appearing on soft platforms. They do not actively attack the player, but they deal minor damage on contact and cause meteor smashes if the player is below them. They can also change their direction. It is best to dispatch them with projectiles or other long-range attacks, as attacking them directly will also hurt the player.


The Geemer trophy is exclusive to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

NTSC These creepy crawlers from the Metroid series cling to any surface, even the ceiling. The spikes on their backs are painful to the touch, so be careful around them. In Smash Run they'll travel on the floors or ceilings, so borrow a page from Samus's book and take them out from afar.
PAL If you spot one of these creatures from the Metroid series crawling along, do your best to avoid those spikes on its back. In Smash Run, they could be on the floor, or they could be on the ceiling. Either way, you'll get hurt if you touch them, so keep a safe distance and take them out with ranged attacks.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]


The Geemer appears as a Novice-class primary spirit, using the Zoomer's artwork from Metroid: Zero Mission.

The Geemer uses a Ivysaur puppet fighter and is fought on the Brinstar stage's Battlefield form. During the battle, the Ivysaur puppet fighter has increased move speed while the floor is sticky, referencing the Geemer's ability to cling onto walls. The Unira item appears, referencing the Geemer's ability to extend their spines in Metroid Prime.
