Theta Metroid by rob-powell Theta Metroid by rob-powell
- Logbook entry - Lore - Space Pirate Data - Theta Metroid

Further experiments on metroid larvae have been suspended, due to a high casulty rate of our pirate subjects. Experiments on the metroid's growth and development have been executed in an attempt to bypass the metroid's weaker alpha stage to the stronger gamma metroids. However the experiments have resulted in mutations in metroid specimens. these mutations have caused the metroid specimens to highly aggressive and have also increased their speed, by a large margin. A large amount of our troops were terminated by metroid specimens before they were able to contain them. It would seem that metroid specimens, although stronger and faster than traditional metroids, retain their vulnerability to colder temperatures. these metroids are far to aggressive for use as a bioweapon because the risk is too high they will turn on us. Reports have suggested the arrival of the hunter several cycles ago. We'll leave the metroids to deal with her, perhaps they can kill eachother and rid us both problems.

Scans show a hightened aggression and increased speed within metroid specimens. Metroids alsoTheta Metroids use a pair of spikes to ram into their enemies, while they also resort to traditional metroid behaviour by latching onto prey to drain their foe's life energy. Multiple bombs are needed if the metroid latches on. Larger and sharper claws are also used for slashing at their enemies. When they attempt to ram use evasive maneuvers, then target their vulnerable underside with the ice beam. Timing is crucial as they are much faster than most other metroids.

That is quite a good Metroid design you have there, reminds me of the Hunter Metroid in a way.

I like the color scheme...  Kinda looks like something from the metamorphosis line the Metroid Prime would have gone through. :o

and of course, great job with this one, the design is very good.
i enjoy most of the paintings i've seen by you, you're very good at designing creatures and your style is great and feels appropriate for what you do.

this creature should be in the next Meroid game, it would be the most dangerous and intelligent metrois species.
it would give a bit more terror to the game if it was very smart, if the game was more like Survivor Horror with action it would be very much like Alien, it would have the claustrophobic feel and the player would have to be careful at every turn in its territory.

If this thing was in any of the Metroid games...I would not want to mess with it. That looks cool! :iconbravoplz:

Is this actually in a game, or is it your own creation? It would fit seamlessly into the life cycle from first Game Boy Metroid game. Your style is very close to the actual game designers' style. I like this.

thanks! This is my personal work, not concept art for any games! Though I would love to do concept work for a metroid game!

It's creepy, unearthly, and pretty much mashes all the "instinctive terror" buttons that HP Lovecraft noticed with his writing about evil bugs and seafood gone bad.
