In Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Splinters are large, aggressive, insect-like creatures found on Aether. They hide in cocoons and will attack any creatures that approach. Even if one is killed inside the cocoon, the entire swarm will still attack.[1] Samus encounters them in the Temple Grounds and in the Great Temple. However, in the Great Temple, they are quickly possessed before she can battle them.

This will drive them into battle frenzy as a defense mechanism." —Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Logbook "Splinter Cocoon" (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
  2. "Splinters are aggressive and dangerous in numbers. Their light armor is no match for your weapons, however. When it isn't hunting, a Splinter will secrete a protective cocoon around itself and enter a state of hibernation. Localized seismic disturbances will awaken the Splinter, triggering a state of blood frenzy in the process. While in this state, a Splinter emits pheromones that trigger frenzy in all nearby Splinters. Disturbing a pack of sleeping Splinters is not advisable." —Logbook "Splinter" (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
