The Barbed War Wasp is a rare enemy encountered while Samus Aran fights the Incinerator Drone in Metroid Prime.


Barbed War Wasps, a member of the War Wasp family, have a green exoskeleton and prefer to attack prey from afar. They can launch their powerful stingers a distance of up to 20 meters. The stinger tips, filled with a potent acidic compound, regrow mere seconds after ejection, presumably without limit.



  1. "Airborne insect with the ability to launch its stinger at prey. A highly aggressive member of the War Wasp family, this insect can propel the tip of its stinger up to 20 meters. The stinger tips regrow seconds after launch and contain an acidic compound designed to predigest prey." —Metroid Prime Logbook "Barbed War Wasp" (Metroid Prime)
  2. "An aggressively territorial insect capable of launching its stinger as a projectile. The more dangerous cousin of the War Wasp, Barbed War Wasps migrate in large swarms, attacking even the largest life-forms in isolated regions of Tallon IV." —Metroid Prime Hunters Logbook "Barbed War Wasp" (Metroid Prime Hunters)
