Primids are the low-level goons of the Subspace Army in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's The Subspace Emissary mode. First appearing at Midair Stadium, they appear as the most frequently encountered enemies in The Subspace Emissary. The Primids attack with a multitude of attacks involving their fists, feet, and body. The Primids also have the ability to jump to other platforms and areas. Primids are a generally low threat enemy as they are rather weak with below average attack power and relatively low health, meaning that they can often be defeated by one or two well-placed attacks even on Intense difficulty. They are also highly susceptible to taking knockback and are vulnerable to grabs. On the flipside, they primarily appear in large numbers, possess high mobility, and utilise a larger moveset than most SSE enemies, which results in them being rather versatile. The Primids also appear in many different variations to suit different tasks. Each type of Primid has its own trophy, which can be collected with a trophy stand.
Different variations of the Primid
HP and damage taken
It remains to be tested exactly which levels correspond to each HP range.
The common soldier of the Subspace Army. It seems pretty harmless, but alas, it's stuffed with Shadow Bugs that leak from its forms. This Primid has no weapons--it will challenge you man-to-man. There are six different Primid types, but all of them are based on this basic form. There are also several different face types.
There are many different faces that a Primid can have. The faces change each time Adventure Mode is loaded up. The three Primids in the display room of the Battleship Halberd Exterior always have the same faces, two of them are different, but the color from two of them is yellow instead of the colors used in the game. The one in the top left of the image also has a black variant, but other than the eye color, it's the exact same.
