Dark War Wasp
Dark War Wasps are War Wasps possessed by young Ing. If the Ing prove themselves, they may take control of Dark War Wasps and even deadlier creatures. They are more dangerous than their light counterparts and, like other War Wasps, they attack in swarms. Samus encounters them in the Temple Grounds and in the Ing Hive.
- "Vicious and swift, the War Wasp is a prime target for young Ing eager to join the war effort. They appreciate the flying speed and numerous attacks the insect possesses. If they prove their mettle in the War Wasp, these Ing often graduate to the control of larger, deadlier creatures." — Logbook "Dark War Wasp" (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
