Zeta Metroids are Metroids which have grown past their Alpha Metroid and Gamma Metroid stages. They are followed by Omega Metroids and, if the Metroid has the proper genetic coding, Queen Metroids in the Metroid life-cycle. Zeta Metroids attack by firing projectiles and by ramming.

Samus encounters three Zeta Metroids while on her mission to exterminate the Metroids on SR388. She can defeat them by firing twenty Missiles at their head or back.

In Metroid Fusion aboard the B.S.L research station, Samus finds a single Zeta Metroid in a stasis tank in the Restricted Laboratory of the Restricted Zone in the Main Deck. This creature is found alongside other Metroids from different stages of the life cycle. This Zeta Metroid is never battled by Samus, and it is probably destroyed with the entirety of the research station.
