Assist Trophy Info
Baby Sheegoths are the young of the Sheegoth species. They have two legs, no visible eyes, no arms, and are protected by a thick shell of ice on their backs which is grown to protect the flesh that, when fully matured, develops into a ridge of energy absorbing crystal. They have a huge, gaping mouth with incredibly sharp teeth. Baby Sheegoth are powerful hunters and can fire bursts of ultra-cold gas at prey, as well as ram their prey. The adult Sheegoth reigns supreme in the Phendrana Drifts.
Samus encounters Baby Sheegoths in Phendrana Drifts on Tallon IV. They can be found in various rooms and in the open. They will attack Samus on sight, if disturbed, making them a constant threat to her.
It could be noted that these creatures bear some resemblance to the Xenomorphs of the Alien franchise, a series which Metroid has drawn a lot of inspiration from.
Mode of Assistance
Baby Sheegoths will appear sleeping after being summoned until disturbed by any approaching opponents, at which point they'll spring to life and spit spheres of cold energy at their attackers. They're invulnerable to all frontal attacks and can instantly reflect all projectiles, but the hard shell on their backs are their weakpoints. After their outer shell takes heavy damage, it'll break apart revealing their flesh leaving them open to attacks and being destroyed. Any powerful fire attacks like a fully-charged Eruption attack from Ike can instantly incinerate the beast and kill it in one blow, regardless of whether its back is exposed or not. Baby Sheegoths will last for 30 seconds after being summoned, or until defeated by other means.
