Metroids from the Metroid seriesEdit

Huh? Metroids from metroid series look just like floating jellyfish... They don't have eyes... At least for the larva... The later evolutions look more bug-like and dinosaur like... The mutations in the prime series look for the most part like many jelly fish varieties...[1]Baggins 20:19, 3 March 2007 (EST)

AppearanceEdit

I'm not sure how everyone thinks they look like Beholders (apart from maybe the name, of course). I acknowledge the fact that the game designers played a lot of D&D in their early days, but these guys look more like Octobrains to me. -Gilmat

Pics for comparison:

Beholder

Maybe a beholder "flipped upside down", but I agree, not really a straightforward beholder. They do look more like the "floating eyes" though from fantasy.Baggins 04:12, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Floating Eye vs. BeholderEdit

I've switched the article to using the term floating eye, due to its existence in a published source. The name beholder however is only mentioned in the file name for the creature, and as far as I know does not appear in the game. Much as we wouldn't name an article on Wretched, "crack elves", a published name or term mentioned in lore specifically, takes precedence.Baggins 06:21, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Alright further research and only references to "beholders" that I can find are from dropped items dropped by Collidus the Warp-Watcher, Crimson Beholder Eye, Fiery Beholder Eye, Emerald Beholder Eye, Amethyst Beholder Eye. If more examples of the term exist for the creature in-game, and in future sources we can move it back.Baggins 06:28, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

It's use is unknownEdit

They have a sphincter on their backside that can be seen contracting when the creature is fighing and dilating when the creature dies. Its use is unknown.

GUYS I THINK I MIGHT NOW WHAT IT'S USED FOR. -HURR ~ THE INDIGO IS A LIE 13:37, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
