Kihunters (キハンター星人, Kihunterian) are enemies that appear in the Metroid series.
Kihunters are insectoid enemies introduced as Space Pirates in Super Metroid, where they assisted the Zebesian Space Pirates in rebuilding their base on Zebes. Zero is their larval stage, as revealed in Metroid Fusion. They appear again in Metroid: Other M, the source of their Smash design, where they were cloned and bred for use as biological weapons. They are led by King Kihunter.
Kihunters appear as flying enemies. They attack by spitting paralyzing globs of acid or, when close enough, by charging at the player.
