Ice Parasites are a species of Parasite adapted to the frigid climate of Phendrana Drifts in Metroid Prime.


Like other members of the Parasite family, Ice Parasites are scavengers. While they have a similar structure to other Parasites, their crystallizine carapace gives them a distinctive white color.

These creatures travel along a short path upon whatever structures or surfaces they are dwelling. While not hostile, anything they come in contact with while circling their route may be damaged.



  1. "Scavenger with a crystalline outer shell. Parasites are hardy creatures, able to adapt to any environment within three generations. The Ice Parasite is a prime example. Having adjusted to a frigid climate, this vermin now thrives in it. Omnivorous, it can exist in areas hostile to most life-forms." — Logbook "Ice Parasite" (Metroid Prime)
