While we only got a brief glimpse of Samus’ foes, an abundance of them were shown.

Here are 8 enemies shown off during the Metroid Dread Nintendo Direct

1. Autsharp

With its deadly spinning blade, Samus will need to approach cautiously. We hear bombs do the trick.

2. Hecathon

This is a somewhat peaceful creature. Don’t attack it and it won’t attack you.

Nintendo

3. Klaida

Yet another enemy that won’t attack Samus first — you’ll want to avoid touching this creature so you don’t take damage.

4. Autsniper

Stay out of its line of sight. If you’re spotted, a well-timed Melee Counter works wonders.

5. Obsydomithon

This creature only attacks when you get close. Beware of its flaming burst attack.

Nintendo

6. Muzby

Due to its thick skin, you’ll have to resort to high-powered attacks to take it down.

7. Quetzoa

Being quick on your feet is key to avoiding this enemy’s attacks. It can easily swoop in and deal lots of damage.

Nintendo

8. Slaaga

Avoid this foe’s deadly acid attacks by jumping or using the Flash Shift ability.

Metroid Dread launches for Nintendo Switch on October 8.
