The Zero (ゾーロ, Zoro) is a recurring enemy from the Metroid series. It is the larval stage of the Kihunter species.

Origin[edit]

Zeros made their debut alongside Kihunters in Super Metroid, appearing in numerous areas of Planet Zebes. It was not until Metroid Fusion that it became clear that Zeros are larval Kihunters, with their metamorphic life cycle displayed over the course of the game. In Metroid: Other M (the source of their Smash design), Zeros were cloned aboard the Bottle Ship, where they could be found in the nest of a King Kihunter in the Biosphere.

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

Zeros, along with FG II-Graham units and Joulions, appear as stage hazards on Pyrosphere. The weighty Zeros drop down onto the stage and then crawl slowly on the floor. If picked up by a fighter, their weight makes the fighter more difficult to launch. They can also be thrown at opponents or at Ridley to inflict damage. Zeros do not appear when the stage is set to Ω form.

Throw them to attack your opponents or Ridley, or keep hold of one to make yourself harder to launch.
